“It was ok, nothing special.”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

Loved the attention to service despite the wait times. The steak was nothing special that you couldn't get anywhere else in Darwin. We don't see the what all the fuss is about. Plus if you have glass surrounding the restaurant, would probably be a good idea to clean it once in a while!

“Great location / venue with good food and service but maybe overpriced”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

Recently moved to Darwin and asked some of the locals to recommend a good steak restaurant. They recommended Char and commented that it was good but maybe overpriced for what you get. After dining at the restaurant my partner and I agreed that it was possibly overpriced - the venue and the staff and the food were very good and we enjoyed the night - but felt it may have been a bit overpriced. This was confirmed the following night when we dined at another Darwin restaurant and I had a similar steak and a much smaller bill and felt this was much better value.

“Lovely spot”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

This was supposed to be fine dining in NT. Lovely spot. Food was OK. Had a wagu steak but at 70 Aussie is way too much. More like a Bristo than a fine dinning spot. Staff working to a SOP. Many were

“CHAR CHUMPING!!1”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Meal was scrumptious. The service was top notch, very professional in a casual manner and very friendly. The wine was superb and married the meal. Entree with scallops, awesomely tasty followed by a splendidly cooked steak and beetroot salad, nice!!!! We were not kept waiting and the relaxing atmosphere was such a buzz.

“Char Bar & Grill”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

Great location with a very nice setting either inside or outside and even upstairs for a private function. Food is very good but a bit on the small side and a tad arty for mine. Drinks are fairly standard prices compared to other venues. Otherwise - damned good!
