We liked it so much we went back the next night. The first time four of us had the prix fixe menu which is an amazing bargain. The second night nine of us returned. Service and food was absolutely excellent. To start at the end,...More

My wife and I swerved into Charisse for lunch. It's in. Composite building with a series of business offices. The address.is correct so be persistent because it's worth every second you take. The place is well appointed and very comfortable. There's not a bit of...More

As usual, we arrived for a late lunch (served until 2 p.m.) and was delighted to find a great table by the window. The meal was good as usual and the tomato bisque soup was wonderful (as was my salad - which seemed bottomless). We...More

I found this restaurant on-line. What a great choice it was! It is a smaller place, but nicely decorated, and classic jazz as background music. Our server was good, focused and friendly. My wife and I shared saffron mussels, which were amazing! She had the...More

Charisse has good food, a convenient downtown location, and decent ambience. But, oh, what a lousy staff. Charisse has an abundance of wine, inattention and arrogance. I have had the pleasure of experiencing Charisse three times. The first, the bartender treated us as if we...More

Charisse offers an excellent prix-fixe menu option where one can opt for smaller portions of appetizers/hors-d'oeuvre, salad, entree, and either a dessert or another hors-d'oeuvre for less than $50.00.
