We were amazed at the food here. They had just reopened when we ate here so it was a long wait and they were understaffed but that being said it was still worth it. The food was really good and I had the best Pasta...Primavera!!! Hopefully, they got their rhythm back for service because this is well worth the visit.More

Due to the current Covid situation we didn't dine it, but ordered takeout. Anything we ordered was delicious. The process of ordering and picking up was flawless.

Staying nearby at Autocamp for our anniversary my wife and I sought out Charles St for a celebratory meal and glad we did! Food was delicious and the ambiance suited us perfectly for a nicer meal and not too far a drive. The staff were...so friendly and very accommodating of our dietary preferences (vegan, flexible). The cherry on top was a special treat to finish the meal. Thanks so much to the staff and kitchen making for such a special evening!More

Crazy times! We were seated at a cute table on the sidewalk in front of their neighbor business. Both the hostess and our server were friendly and cheerful (with all of us behind our masks). We ordered a bottle of the Yosemite Idols Chardonnay, which...was a little sweet, but was cold and perfect on a very warm evening. The blue cheese house salad was delicious! The romaine, carrots and peppers were all crisp and fresh, with a generous helping of crumbled blue cheese on top. I ordered the evening’s chicken special, which was a grilled breast stuffed with pancetta, garlic and gruyere cheese. It was yummy! My hubby had the bacon-wrapped filet and said it was perfect. We told our server we were “keto”, so she held the bread, croutons, and potatoes. We received double scoops of perfectly cooked fresh veggies. I thoroughly enjoyed this meal!More

Oh my gosh! I cannot express how happy my belly is right now! Ordered 2 Ribeye dinners as takeout and was absolutely floored by the quality of the meal! Due to the pandemic, pretty much everything right now is takeout. We never thought we’d get...a good steak dinner as takeout. In steps Charles Street Dinner House to knock it out of the park! My ribeye was cooked beautifully and was SO GOOD! I was able to eat it in my hotel room with plastic cutlery - that’s right- I cut my ribeye EASILY with plastic utensils! Our dinner was phenomenal and we could not be more pleased! Thank you for a great meal. You guys ROCK! (Oh, and the apple pie is to die for!)More

There was 3 in our party. We all tried different dishes and we all loved what we each ordered. We got the onion rings for an appetizer and they were light and delicious. I had the stuffed pork tenderloin and it was wonderful.

Perhaps biased because of being cooped up so long . I was here before in Feb and like it then. Definitely worth the 1 hour drive. Superior service. Attentive but in obtrusive. Fresh made pasta very nicely done. Good wine list as we expect in...California Just good food well served. In a quaint setting befitting the communityMore

We visited the Charles Street Dinner resteraunt on Sunday March 15, 2020. We arrived just moments after the state of California announced new dining room Limits. This is a dining engagement we will remember forever. Our reservation for five was seated promptly- by the most...welcoming of hostesses. We ordered a bottle of wine from the limited but worthy wine list- a Sangiovese from le vigne winery in Paso Robles. Our orders were taken by an efficient, cheerful wait person. The cream of jalapeño soup with bacon was very entertaining in a positive way. The lemon yogurt salad dressing should not be missed Dining at this locally owned and operated resteraunt is a treat. Great people - great food-More

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food is excellent. We had a great dinner here as a family during Thanksgiving weekend. The chef is French and it shows in terms of the quality of the food. Reasonably priced. Friendly service. Probably the...best place for dinner in MariposaMore

I would suggest making reservations for a large group. But you can walk right in without and they will seat you as soon as they can.
