    Great varied menu and every item is always excellent. We had reserved for patio, which then closed due to rain, but staff was able to get us an indoor table - not guaranteed to happen but they made it work! Even though the dining room stayed full there was little noise and tables were positioned so no conversations were overheard.

    Everything was good. Just not great. The booth had a big rip in it. That killed the ambiance a little. The brussel sprouts were ok, but not great compared to the others we've had. My wife had the Seabass and it was good. I had the duck breast and it was just ok.

    We literally just wanted to try a new place and booked a reservation via OpenDoor same day. We were about 10-13 minutes early and waited less than 5 upon arrival to be seated. The place is very clean and the staff seems to work together so effortlessly like a well oiled machine! Our server was Zachary and he was WONDERFUL! He has such a kind energy and smile! He was very knowledgeable of the menu and helpful with recommendations for cocktails and food. He kept our water glasses full, our table clean & clear, and was very patient and cooperative as this was our first visit to Char! WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK! The food is excellent and very decently priced. They also had a live band that was finishing up as we arrived! We will definitely be back to try their brunch and mimosas! Thanks so much for a wonderful experience Zachary!

    My meal ordered from the brunch menu was cold. Poached eggs should be warm. This was my second visit to this particular store and the first was equally disappointing. There are many choices in Nashville and this restaurant will not be on the list.

    Char - NashvilleResponded 1 day agoHello, thank you for visiting us here at Char. I'm very sorry to hear that you've had an underwhelming meal on more than one occasion. We'd love to chat with you a little further about your recent visit and determine how we can regain your trust and patronage -- would you mind sending us your contact info at your convenience? We are hopeful for the opportunity to turn this around and show you the type of experience we are fully capable of providing. Thank you in advance for your time!

    Overall very good but when you pay $100 for a bottle of wine, the waiter should pour refills.

    Char - NashvilleResponded 5 days agoHi Kim, thank you for your feedback from your recent visit to Char. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed your overall meal! I do, however, want to apologize for the lack of attention on keeping your wine refilled. This is a basic step of service, but it sounds like we dropped the ball here. I'm sorry for how this negatively impacted your experience and hope it will not deter from you visiting us again in the future. We take all of our guests' feedback seriously, and will address this with our staff so we can improve. Thank you for your patronage; we appreciate your candid comments and hope to see you again soon.

    When a steak has to go back to the kitchen twice that’s an issue. The one female manager thought it was best to lecture my wife how to order it the next time— 1) specify no pink when asking for it well done, and 2) ask them to butterfly it. Kitchen decided to instead turn her steak into steak bites.

    Char - NashvilleResponded on 26 July 2022Hello, I'm sorry to hear about your recent experience at Char. We would love the opportunity to speak with you regarding your meal. This is far from the experience we strive to provide our guests with, so it is surprising and disappointing to hear this feedback. Would you mind sharing your contact information with us at your convenience? Thank you in advance for your time!

    First time eating at Char, and it is now one of our favorites. It was our Anniversary and a signed card from the staff was waiting for us at our table. It was a lovely touch! Ethan was our waiter, and he was very knowledgeable about the wine selection and made perfect suggestions for pairings. We enjoyed the Red Fish and Filet entrees, and added a lump crab cake. All were exceptional. We have already shared our great experience with friends and look forward to returning.
