“Good food at Charlatan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 28, 2011

The Charlatan has nice space. I have been going there for brunch , lunch and dinner ( bar food). Good selection on wine. The staff is friendly and attentive to your needs. You can watch sport as well, but they have good music. Not for kids - it's a bar type destination. Open late.

This restaurant can't seem to make up it's mind what it wants to be! You enter into a noisy, sports bar atmosphere, but with an oddly formal decor. The food is fine.

Wow. This restaurant has a fantastic environment, great food and appys, and an unparalleled selection of beer on tap. I strongly recommend the Tuna Bites and the mussels!
