"We choose this place because it is only a few blocks from the Bradley Beach Cinema. It's a small place with good prices and impressive food. We asked to have our table changed as we didn't want a draft from the door. Although the place was practically empty this seemed to be a problem. The hostess/waitress (the were 2 waitresses) seemed to have attitude towards us after that. When we asked for bread we were told we'd get it after we ordered. Noticed the table next to us got it before ordering. Don't really understand what that was all about but we chose not to let it ruin our evening and the delicious food more than made up for it plus the other waitress was pleasant."

Finally, a New York style atmosphere and experience crosses the Hudson to Central Jersey. Char Steakhouse's innovative cuisine features only the finest cuts of Dry Aged and Prime Beef with fish delivered fresh daily. Guests will dine by landscaped views revealed by towering windows. Mahogany wood walls and ceiling treatments create an authentic steakhouse environment rivaled by none in the New Jersey dining scene. Unique features include four modern fireplaces that are the first of their kind, a curved wall of water that rains serenity in the aptly named Rain Room. Guests can enjoy 7 cuts of the finest quality dry aged beef or snack on oysters and colossal blue crab from our premier raw bar. Seating in the lounge is offered on a first come first serve basis or party goers can reserve arched custom booths for up to twelve. Our highly trained and experienced staff exhibit warmth and hospitality in welcoming Char's guests home. All of this at a prices you never thought possible.

"Char has New York prices and quality like New York. Have been wanting to trythis place but reluctant because of the high price so decided to try it during Red Bank restaurant week. The filet mignon was sensational! Cooked the way I like it and extremely tender and flavorful. Creme brulee was also excellent. Will certainly consider going back when I need a red meat fix.
Only negative comments - had to ask for the restaurant week menu. That should have been given automatically. Even when asked for it took the hostess a few minutes to produce it. Also didn't feel the waitress was as well trained as I'd expect in a place at this price range. Busboy however was very professional.

"$30 for 3 courses is a really good deal. Everything we had was delicious and nicely presented. Drinks are expensive which of course adds to the total. Will definitely be back."

"Met friends for lunch here. Very few tables taken so we were able to sit and talk well beyond the time it took us to eat. The food was very good, nice size portions and reasonably priced. It is right near the zoo and only a short walk from the Woodley Park Metro station."

"This is a cool looking steak house with great tasting food. The steaks were excellent, loved the corn creme brulee and the crispy potatoe sides. Desserts were yummy too. The waiter must have heard us toasting my husband for his birthday and brought out a special dessert for him. Very nice touch. Service all around was professional. Look forward to going back again in the near future."
