Pros and cons. Pros -Very attentive, polite staff -Nice ambiance -Good wine list -Delicious, warm bread! Cons -Food comes out entirely too fast. Wasn't even 25% through gumbo when main was plopped down and plates were pushed around. -Most of the food, while good, was still average, with excepts noted. -The priciest meal, by far, of our entire journey.

This was our first time at this restaurant. I told the waiter I like good steaks and I asked what he recommended. He said get the NY Strip Philadelphia style and I wouldn't regret it. He was so right. That was one of the most flavorful and tender steaks I've ever had. I highly recommend you try this place and... More

It's consistently good. I'd rate it differently if there was a notch between average and very good. You probably won't ever get a bad meal there, but I haven't had anything there that left me absolutely determined to get back at my next opportunity.

This is a wonderful restaurant for a special occasion. Even though it is right off of the freeway, once you enter inside, the atmosphere takes you to a dimly lit, quiet environment of fine dining. My husband and I have gone there on a date, our friends have treated us for a lovely meal together there, and we have also... More

CHAR provided delicious bite after bite as we enjoyed apps, salads, sides, steaks, veal, scallops and yes yummy desserts. My sirloin strip was cooked to medium rare perfection which many top notch steak restaurants seem to miss. There are lots of many interesting dishes to choose. For me, the mark of a great cook is the sauces and CHAR was... More

When we arrived , we were greeted and promptly seated. The food was great here, but the service was terrible. Once we received our entrees, our server only came back once and we asked for drink refills and never got them. We got our refills when he brought our check.
