TO OUR VALUED GUESTS,

Effective March 16th at 4pm all Charcoal Group
restaurants will be closed due to the
continued spread of the COVID-19 virus.

We look forward to re-opening as soon as we
feel the risk to the health and safety of
our Team Members, our Guests and our
Communities has been diminished.

During this time, we will not be open for
take-out or delivery as we have made the
decision to honour all aspects of a
proactive quarantine and ensure all of us
are doing our part to ‘Flatten the Curve’.

We are enthusiastically looking forward to
the day we can throw open our doors and
serve you once again.

Until that day – be safe and take care of
yourself and loved ones.

We dined just before all social isolation recommended and restaurant quiet. Excellent service and delicious food. Prices a little higher than we usually spend but was a celebration dinner.

We had a great time, ordered 9 apps between the 6 of us, 6 mains, to many (wonderful) cocktails to count and 4 desserts. Had a small issue with 2 of the meals being over salted, they reacted strongly and removed one meal from the bill even though it was mostly enjoyed. One dessert was supposed to come with vanilla ice cream and came with coconut which was odd and didn’t go well. But the service was 6 stars. And the food was closer to a 4 then a 3 but no .5 options. I highly recommend Bauer kitchen, its mostly perfect and if it is not, they will make it right. Ps they need oysters 😉, thats the only thing that would make it better.

The food was very good. We had the tuna tartare and the tuna bowls. The bowls were very good and were quite big so we could have shared a bowl. We ordered a bottle of wine but asked to try 2-3 first before ordering the bottle but they only sold one of the bottles by the glass so we could only try one which we did. We ended up selecting another wine which the server said was popular and it was very good. Wine was expensive though - most glasses started at $16/glass and bottles started around $48 and up. While our server was very pleasant, the service was terrible. It took a long time to place any order - drinks and food. When we were ready for the bill we could not even find our server and had to ask another server for the bill. The other server was very pleasant and brought the bill promptly but it was strange that our server was gone and we were not told that someone else would take care of us. We were there celebrating a birthday and the server did bring a dessert on the house for the birthday lady. In the end while the food was very good, the service was poor and I would say that our overall dinner experience was just okay.

The dining experience was quite disappointing.
We both had starters, I had the chicken noodle soup and my wife had the Bauer salad. The soup was a disappointment, salty and a lack of ingredients. There was a good amount of pulled chicken but the noodles were conspicuously absent. My wife said her salad was quite tasty but again ingredients were missing. She found one (1) pecan and two (2) slices of pear within the plenty of salad leaves.
My wife ordered the Smoked Salmon Benedict and I had the Ranchero Bowl. I was put off with my first taste. The beans and egg were served at room temperature. Digging deeper the ancho chicken recovered the dish somewhat but would pass on this dish again
My wife was served her meal and revealed that it had been served without the hollandaise. Eggs are something that are seriously harmed if sent back to the kitchen.
The restaurant was very busy. We had to wait several minutes to be seated, waited a few more minutes to be greeted by our server and then several more minutes to be served our drink order. Sending eggs back would have been problematic. The quality of food was fair based on our servings. We have dined here a few times and were disappointed in this result. Would we recommend to a friend? With reservations.

They accommodated my plant-based requests without a problem. My partner and I had a reservation for a special celebration, and we were given a private booth that was perfect for a romantic dinner. Cocktails are unique, and I love the existing plant-based menu options! Service was very friendly and our food came in a decent amount of time, considering how busy the restaurant was. I have been here several times, and plan to visit many times again!

21st birthday and the waitress was wonderful. They sent over a dessert as well. We thought it tasted funny and she changed it right away to another selection that was amazing.

We had a wonderful time with friends visiting from out of town. Nice cocktail and decent wine list, great atmosphere, nice staff, awesome food, (I had the lamb), and perfect noise level to be able to have a conversation and catch -up.

Food was tasty, but could have been hotter.
It was busy as expected and as a result a wee bit noisy, so hard to hear all at the table. I realize this is beyond the control of the restaurant, but something to note for future. Server was awesome!

First, I need to say that our server was fabulous. He was super gracious in working to accommodate our crazy timing as we only had 70 minutes for our group to each and leave to make it to a performance.
The food was amazing, the Ahi Tuna Poke bowl was the best I have had.
Great spot, we will be back for sure!

Food was excellent but we were disappointed that they had run out of the desert listed on the special valentines menu. If one were running a special over 2 to 3 days one would think that there would be enough to still serve customers early in the dining evening.

Excellent service and excellent food! What more could you ask for?
Pretty ambience and they really make you feel taken care of. One of the people in our dinner party ordered a dish that wasn’t what she anticipated and the manager ensured that we were satisfied.

I would recommend when you have large group to put people at the end of the tables. It was hard to chat and we don’t have each.
