    The food and the service were outstanding. The restaurant was busy, therefore noisy, and the evening sun was shining right on us (but they quickly closed the shades) Would highly recommend.

    The service was very slow. I had to stand up and find the waiter multiple times. He was kind when he was available. The steak was cooked to the wrong temperature. However, it was taken off of my bill by the manager. The potato that came with the steak was cold and bland. Other food I ordered was very average. I did enjoy the piano playing. I wish I would’ve skipped this restaurant and will not be returning.

    Char - NashvilleResponded 1 day agoHello, thank you for your recent visit to Char-- we appreciate you choosing to dine with us. I sincerely apologize for the disappointing experience. We are always happy to rectify any errors, and I'm glad to know that our Manager was able to step in while you dined with us to acknowledge our shortcomings and remove the steak from your bill. However, it sounds like our attempts to remedy the situation were unsuccessful and for this I am very sorry. We never want our guests to leave with an unsatisfactory experience, and I regret that we were unable to turn the rest of your evening around for the better. We value your patronage and do hope that you will reconsider giving us another try in the future. Thank you again for your review and feedback.

    First time visit. I would have returned based upon the food quality, but likely will not because of the lack of service from the front desk to the waiter. Despite having a reservation, The hostess was about to seat a group that came in behind us but another hostess spoke up and said we should be seated first. Upon taking us to a table we asked if we could be sat at one of the 3 open booths and she stated that we would need to request them at our reservation and never checked with the desk to see if our request could be honored. Interesting that another group was sat at one of the open booths after we had received our food. During conversation with the people in the booth it was discovered that they had NOT requested a booth in the reservation or at the desk. Humm. To make matters worse the same hostess attempted to sit an older couple at the booth immediately behind us but they asked if they could be reseated. She immediately went to the hostess stand to ask for another assignment for them yet NEVER went to verify when we asked. Absolutely unacceptable. Despite mediocre server service still left a 25% tip, but won’t be back.

    Char - NashvilleResponded 2 days agoHello, I'm so sorry to hear about your recent experience with us!

    Great varied menu and every item is always excellent. We had reserved for patio, which then closed due to rain, but staff was able to get us an indoor table - not guaranteed to happen but they made it work! Even though the dining room stayed full there was little noise and tables were positioned so no conversations were overheard.

    Everything was good. Just not great. The booth had a big rip in it. That killed the ambiance a little. The brussel sprouts were ok, but not great compared to the others we've had. My wife had the Seabass and it was good. I had the duck breast and it was just ok.

    We literally just wanted to try a new place and booked a reservation via OpenDoor same day. We were about 10-13 minutes early and waited less than 5 upon arrival to be seated. The place is very clean and the staff seems to work together so effortlessly like a well oiled machine! Our server was Zachary and he was WONDERFUL! He has such a kind energy and smile! He was very knowledgeable of the menu and helpful with recommendations for cocktails and food. He kept our water glasses full, our table clean & clear, and was very patient and cooperative as this was our first visit to Char! WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK! The food is excellent and very decently priced. They also had a live band that was finishing up as we arrived! We will definitely be back to try their brunch and mimosas! Thanks so much for a wonderful experience Zachary!

    My meal ordered from the brunch menu was cold. Poached eggs should be warm. This was my second visit to this particular store and the first was equally disappointing. There are many choices in Nashville and this restaurant will not be on the list.

    Char - NashvilleResponded on August 5, 2022Hi Kim, thank you for your feedback from your recent visit to Char. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your overall meal! I do, however, want to apologize for the lack of attention on keeping your wine refilled. This is a basic step of service, but it sounds like we dropped the ball here. I'm sorry for how this negatively impacted your experience and hope it will not deter from you visiting us again in the future. We take all of our guests' feedback seriously, and will address this with our staff so we can improve. Thank you for your patronage; we appreciate your candid comments and hope to see you again soon.

    When a steak has to go back to the kitchen twice that’s an issue. The one female manager thought it was best to lecture my wife how to order it the next time— 1) specify no pink when asking for it well done, and 2) ask them to butterfly it. Kitchen decided to instead turn her steak into steak bites.
