WE were here for our small company Christmas banquet.We all had steak and everyone enjoyed it immensely.The vegetables weren't popular in our group,but the potatoes were very good.Desserts offered did not strike our fancy.We went elsewhere for dessert.

I have lived in the Kitchener area most of my life + the Charcoal Restaurant is by far my favorite for everything! The service, food, atmosphere second to none! I highly recommend the Charcoal or Martini's or Del's (all in the same building + family)

I was quite disappointed with my New Year's Eve 2014 meal. The meal was pricey and the food disappointing. The steak was overcooked and over seasoned. Considering they are a steak house, I was surprised. Steak should be prepared to enhance the flavour not hit it.

I was invited to a group party (stag dinner) and we had a private room booked. The service was excellent with pre-dinner snacks and beverages. The main course was outstanding and everyone enjoyed the night. The Charcoal did a great job.

Charcoal is my favourite restaurant period I think. It has the best steak of any steakhouse I have been too without getting too fancy pantsy. I am not a fan of places that try to get all creative with crazy concoctions, I like to keep things simple but at an excellent level of quality. The service there is very personalized... More

Food was very tasty and presentation was great. Ordered the Filet and NY, both of which were cooked perfectly. Only fault was the length of time between visits from the server.

This restaurant is located next to the Radisson hotel on King St. It's in the basement (cantina) part of the Charcol Grill. The food was awesome and the flower pot bread was amazing when paired with the homemade olive butter. The pizza crust was light and tasty. The black spaghetti was nice with the clams, but check to make sure... More

We were treated so well that we planned right away to return soon...and we did! The beef is outstanding. The atmosphere is really cozy. Great service too.

I think I visited the Charcoal Steakhouse for the first time in 1980. The fact that it's still going strong 34 years later says it all. The prime rib is outstanding and the service is always good. Definitely make reservations.
