Three couples met here for dinner on a Saturday night in January. The noise level was so outrageously loud, that I could not hear the person seated to my right or left. The salad was tasteless and when I asked to have a modified version of one of the special as my entreel, the waiter came back to say that... More

The short rib is just to die for! Cocktails are great and it is just a very nice setting for a nice dinner.

They charge for everything, if you order a steak and want sauce for it, beware, they charge you for that too. Way overpriced, very small portions, and the food is terrible. Will never go back. Everyone was very disappointed. First and last time. Tons of other places to eat at.

I was here for drinks at the bar, the atmosphere and decor is nice, pleasant music playing in the background, the bartenders were courteous. I will return for dinner later.

We're usually disappointed in higher-end NJ steak restaurants, but that was not the case Saturday night. The steaks (rib-eye and strip) were done as requested, the appetizers (tuna tartare and sashimi) were delicious, and even the side of broccoli was cooked properly. The service was also prompt and courteous. The only complaint was that the 'steak sauce' was more a... More

Located 1 block from the intersection of Broad and West Front Streets, CHAR offers a dining experience which is well done. Everything was handled flawlessly. We arrived nearly an hour before our reservation and was able to be seated within minutes. Cocktails were made the same way you would make them at home. Bread selection includes popovers! You rarely get... More

Cowboy ribeye steaks, west coast oysters, martinis, VEGAS style facades and the friendliest wait staff in NJ, that's CHAR. Walk in and check out the wine walls, cascading waterfalls, and some of the most beautiful women you've ever seen...this makes up the first 2 minutes you spend in this two story Mecca for unreal delicacy and 5 star treatment. If... More

This is great restaurant that I recommend everyone to try at least once. It is worth every penny . It's a bit pricey but the food is excellent . The restaurant is nicely decorated, you feel like you are in a NYC restaurant. The food is well presented . I highly recommend the dry aged steak. If you are not... More
