The service was great, the food was great and they had a nice outdoor area as we were not comfortable sitting inside. The only thing I would’ve changed is maybe not to have the outside area confined and a little more space between the tables. But the overall experience was excellent! I highly recommend

The service is amazing. Our waiter came by several times to refill our drinks and make sure we had everything we needed and were enjoying our food. The tuesday night special is amazing and usually what I go for. Great restaurant!

We have never had a less than great experience at Char. The food is always delicious, the service is always excellent, regardless of who is our server (they’re all great). We miss hanging out at the bar, but that is not possible now due to COVID-19. However, Matt, our favorite bartender, still makes us the the most delicious drinks!

We opted for Prime Rib Night.. great value for a great meal. My wife asked for an end cut (which she got) and both of ours were cooked to perfection. The wait staff was attentive and the service was fast. We thoroughly enjoyed it, as we did on the several previous times we had eaten there.

We enjoyed our meal and it was amazing to just be out after quarantine!!. Food was fantastic and especially liked the Caesar salad in a crusted Parmesan bowl:)!. Check it out. Table for 2 outside on the porch was lovely and the sun doesn’t hit the porch until mid afternoon.. between 12- 3 was perfect!

Outside seating but road noise not bad. OK, that aside, what a great dinner. My son and I went there to celebrate his pending marriage and could not of picked a better place. I will definitely go back.

The prefixed menu, even though it went up $3 from the day I booked my table to the day of our visit is still a good deal. You pick an appetizer, I had the dumplings and they were incredible. Main meal I ordered the shrimp scampi and it was enjoyable. For dessert I had the almond cake delicious. My friends had never been there before and can’t wait to go back. One had the Asian calamari the other had the dumplings . My friend had the chicken martini it came with spinach and mash potatoes, our other friend had the flank steak that came with zucchini and mash potatoes. One had chocolate mousse for dessert and the other had chocolate something that she enjoyed . All in all a great night, to finally get out and enjoy. You do need your mask to use the ladies room. We’d like to go back to try the prime rib special on a Wednesday.

Have been going to Char for years. Food, service and drinks are always superb. They did a nice job adjusting to total outdoor dining during the phased comeback.

Due to Covid, we ate outside. it was lovely! problem was the attention of server could have been better, especially since not many people at restaurant at 4:30. We did not have a full dinner, only appetizers and cocktails. The calamari was very overdone. Rubbery.
Defiantly not the normal.

Very good Tuesday night specials, even get dessert. I feel like they rush you a little to get in the next table.

Overall very good. Definately would recommend for a couples night, girl friend night. I wouldn't bring kids ... not that kind of place.

I've dined at Char several times in the past two years and have always enjoyed the food and service!
My work friends and I come here a few times a year because of the convenient location (just off the Taconic Pkwy) and the weeknight dinner specials, which are a real value!

This was my first visit at Char going to brunch with the unlimited mimosas. The crab cake eggs benedict were amazing and the mimosas are a great value. Only bad thing was that we went in thinking that the unlimited mimosas, bloody marys and screwdrivers were $9 because that's what the website says, but it was changed to $15. Still a good price, and we were told as soon as we were seated, but the website should be updated.
