The steak, sides, and drinks were amazing. I had the short rib and it was to die for. It melted in my mouth. My date had the rib-eye and it was equally delicious. We shared a side of Mac 'n Cheese which was good (a little dry, but still good). We went around Christmas time and there were carolers in... More

Char Steak Restaurant was a disappointment. Requested the petite filet to be done medium rare; it was served medium well and cold. Another guest ordered veal chops with Italian peppers. it was never stated that hot peppers would be in the medley. Guest was not able to eat peppers. Waiter simply said, I am sorry,I requested filet to be medium... More

I was a guest of a large business dinner so can not really comment on prices and the like..but...what a rib eye steak! Clearly the best I have ever had - so certainly deserves comment. Service was terrific by very professional staff. Thank you Char!

Had dinner at Char for the first time, waiter was good. Waiter asked what we'd like to drink, drinks took about 15 minutes - which to me - is too long to wait. Bread was offered only once - should we assume that Char is watching their costs and only wants to serve bread only one time. This is not... More

I know steaks and I know beef. This is the real deal - great cuts followed by the best way of grilling it. The drinks are generous with alcohol and the appetizers are just the right size. In fact, we keep coming back for drinks and appetizers and on occasion for a full meal. The variety in the menu is... More

Decent place. The servers are always rude. Good steak but it is not one of the better ones I've had. For the price I paid, I would much rather go into the city and go to Michael Jordan steak house in grand central station

This is one of our favorite restaurants as its food is fresh and well prepared. The size of the portions is more than enough and we enjoy the sides being served family style.

Best restaurant in the area, with outstanding food and ambiance. Menu is tad pricey, but well worth it.

Resteraunt is modern and up to date, waiters look sharp, hostesses are gorgeous, food is so-so. If you want to be seen, and have average food eat here. If you want to eat well go some place else.
