Returned to Charbon after 3 years and found it just as we remembered: awesome steaks, great service and classy atmosphere. It's in an historic train station and filled with energy. They check your coat. Really full menu and everything cooked to perfection. Highly recommended. I call it memorable.

We went for dinner in New Year's Eve and was seated immediately. The service was fantastic. The ambience was nice and we had the best dessert ever!

Came for the dry-aged steak they were famous for. Staff were excellent and the service was great. Coat check and right off the road. Cocktails and wine list was great. There were plenty of options on the menu and sauces and sides to go with the entrée. Steaks weren't bad but nothing to write home about. I had the 14oz... More

This was supposed to be a special night but it was awful, we were a party of four to celebrate my wife's birthday. I would have normally done my nut and complained but didn't want to spoil the night anymore. With a steak you get ONE vegetable (choose wisely ) and a choice of chips or a whole baked potato....

Had dinner at the bar with friends and although the service was fine the food is just not good. The absolute worst NY Strip I've eaten and the baked potato was cold, small and not well presented. Good place to grab a drink and maybe an appetizer but a sad attempt at a premier steak house.

Pre-meal started with a pickle, yes a delicious pickle. Warm bread and butter and a very delicious slaw with a vinegar dressing. Seared scallops and mushrooms for DH; caramelized onion soup for me, to start. Ribeye steak with garlic mashed potatoes and cauliflower, for him; Boston cut steak with baked potato, loaded, and cauliflower for me. Steak were perfectly cooked... More

We were advised by a the gentleman at the front desk to visit this restaurant as the had live jazz music. It wasn't a disappointment, service was great and so was the food.

Two of us ordered the steak and asked for sauce on the side but when the meal came, the steaks were covered in sauce. As the sauce didn't taste good, they took back my steak and just put it on the grill, which meant it was overcooked. Sides were not very good either, baked potato was dry and mashed potatoes...

Had an enjoyable birthday celebration here. Meal was very good. A bit pricey but worth it for a splurge.
