"I dined with my two young children at Char while staying at the Strathhallan. I was surprised at how child-friendly it is! The children's menu is excellent, the seating is great, and the staff could not have been more accommodating. I highly recommend it.
The only drawback was the Flourless Chocolate Cake. Even thought it tastes amazing, it was loaded with caffeine and sugar. Parents beware if you hope to get some sleep!"

"We went to Char to celebrate a birthday. It's perfect for special occasions, or even just a fancy dinner. The ambiance was fantastic, not too upscale and definitely trendy. The bar has a decent selection of beer and craft cocktails, as well as a respectable wine list. The menu is definitely targeted toward foodies with appetizers like burrata and foie gras. Our food was amazing, I had the Del Monico steak and she had the duck. Our server Pat was also wonderful and tremendously helpful. It was a great experience and I'm looking forward to returning during the summer months to try the outdoor seating. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone looking to try some new food, cocktails, or anyone that's looking for a more upscale dining experience."

"This is my new favorite place to eat in Rochester and I'm a native. It is expensive, but absolutely worth it. I am still dreaming about the Veal Sweatbreads and Beef Wagyu Tartare. Great for dates or dinner."

"A NYC dining experience in Rochester, NY. The food & it's presentation was impeccable. The view of the roaring outdoor fire while dining indoors in a warm, low lit, ambiance rich, contemporary style restaurant on a frosty New Years Eve was nothing short of charming. The quick & attentive service, which included valet parking & a coat check tab brought to the table, with coats ready upon our departure AND please let me not forget the ceremonial decorative napkin folding anytime a diner left the table. Will return to Char often."

"Service great, noisy. Food pleasing to eye and taste. .tad to salty. Table by private party room, so traffic volume was annoying. For price expected more. Three people three courses, cocktail and low end bottle of wine. 300$"

"Char is wonderful for any occasion. For the price, however, we were disappointed at being placed in the overflow room. It was just ok and lacking the ambiance of the main dining room. With advanced reservations, we won't go again unless we can be seated in the main dining room."

"Varied menu with many choices. I chose the sea bass special. Sea bass was done nicely, but the portion was extremely small, maybe 2 oz. cooked, and the price was extremely large. The risotto was very salty and tasted too much like bacon. Ate one forkful. Not happy at all. Our server apologized, but what to do? My friends enjoyed their meals . Dessert was yummy."
