    Fantastic dinner, excellent service. The negroni was spot on, the prime rib exceptional, the seafood carbonara rich and delicious. The best fried crab claws outside the gulf coast.Get the comeback sauce for them.

    The food is always DELICIOUS, and this was no exception. I tried something I never had--I tend to be a creature of habit--and was blown away by the Steak and bleu. Steak was done perfectly and the ingredients, especially the bleu made it quite tasty. Service, as usual was SPOT on, server, Skyler was on top of our needs and was not overaggressive and was both professional and friendly! Bottom-line, INCREDIBLE all around.

    Ist time at Char and will be back!! Victoria was truly the PERFECT waitperson, attentive, offering suggestions when asked, knew the wine and food menu inside out, so friendly, kept everything moving since we were in a time crunch! Wonderful, classy setting! Started with the Fried Green Tomatoes done to perfection!!! Tasty but not overly spiced. Healthy portion (easily shared). The scallops broiled over red pepper risotto with grapes and asparagus came with choice of house salad, Caesar or Grilled Wedge for a mere $5.00. We ordered the Caesar and thankfully not overly dressed! My daughter and I shared everything and even still had some to bring home! Bread and butter were soon to appear once we were seated. We so appreciated that the kitchen divided everything for us on separate plates. I had the Brut Cava and my daughter had a dry Rosé, and again prices were more than reasonable (wine had choice of 6 oz or 9 oz pour). The menu is varied and full from an abundance of appetizers and salads to many beef cuts, seafood, pasta and a burger. Make sure to make reservations.

    Have gone to char many times. Today when we walked in at 455 we had to wait ten minutes to be seated No one apologized or explained In my salad there was hair. Tyler the server was excellent but no manager ever came to apologize even though this is a clear health code violation which I could report The manager should be replaced - Tyler the server was great but other than that poor experience

    Char - NashvilleResponded on June 13, 2022Hi Manny, I'm very sorry to hear about your recent experience at Char. Please know that we take sanitation and cleanliness very seriously here, and follow all precautionary measures possible to avoid situations like this. Additionally, it's incredibly disappointing to learn that when this was brought to our attention it wasn't acknowledged properly during your visit; a manager absolutely should have become involved. We'd like to speak with you more about your visit-- would you be willing to share your contact information with us at your convenience? Thank you in advance for your time; we are hopeful for the opportunity to regain your trust and patronage.

    Lunch is always very good at Char. The daily special is very reasonable and has great side dish choices. My guest had the tenderloin tips which were amazingly tender. I would request another side rather than the fries. Our server was obviously in training, but she did an amazing job.

    The prime rib is easily the best I’ve ever had. I usually get the scallops every time, but the prime rib blew me away. My wife’s filet was perfect. They were kind enough to put us in a booth even after setting a table for us - exceptional service. We’ve been here many times, and they never let us down.

    Ethan and the rest of the staff at Char made my boyfriends birthday experience special. We enjoyed the Nola BBQ shrimp, prime rib, and duck breast.

We plan to move to the area in the next couple of years and Char will definitely be a go to spot for special occasions.
