Char has excellent atmosphere and excellent food. The menu had a wonderful selection of everything and it's hard to chose an entree cause everything looks so good. Their hamburgers are good too.

Great restaurants prove they are top notch not when everything goes well for the customer, but rather, when they can successfully navigate the customer pass issues. Char is my #1 restaurant for great food, atmosphere and service. Today I visited Char for an early dinner....More

The menu is stale and overpriced for what you receive. The kitchen is inflexible in accommodating special dietary requests. The service is spotty due to a slow kitchen at peak times in addition to poor management and a lack of thorough training.More

Good food but not worth the prices. Can get vey loud, depending on the crowd. Dinner for 3 no drinks or dessert. We prefer good food at the right price so you aren't paying for the "in" place to show off.More

Excellent atmosphere for Sunday Brunch with great food and music. The wait staff are great and very accommodating. The food is very good and seasoned well. Calling for a reservation is a great idea to save time. Children are welcome for the brunch.
