Charcoal BYOB Ratings and Reviews
We had a wonderful dinner at Charcoal BYOB. The view of the river was beautiful and the restaurant was very pleasant. The staff was very friendly and attentive as well. Two of our friends were vegetarian and asked the chef to prepare a pasta dish for them. They were not disappointed! Will definitely return again!
The food is creative and delicious and you can't beat the river view. And of course, the unbeatable bread that cannot be resisted; dense and moist with a charcoal like crust which is unbelievably baked on the premises. I love dessert too; those hot brioche donuts are to die for but you can't miss that budino mouse dessert in a jar with polenta and crispy walnuts! I don't want the word to spread too far; want to keep the place to myself :)
We had an excellent meal at Charcoal. The chefs continue to innovate and execute. The bread and butter are unique and a must. The pasta dishes are clever -- the soft shell crab meal is a great seasonal dish. The polenta budino is a bellwether and never disappoints. The only caution is that the menu can be pricey for the size of the portions, particularly the appetizers. So, if you want fine dining and unique cuisine, Charcoal is one of the best, if not the best, places in Bucks County. If you want more volume (and less finesse), you can find cheaper alternatives.
Best restaurant in Bucks County. Food looks deceivingly simple but has some of the best flavor profiles I have eaten anywhere within the US. Highly recommend starting with their charred fresh baked bread and ending the meal with their creamy donuts. Both are unbelievable and have to be tasted to understand my enthusiasm.
This was the second time my husband and I had a date night at Charcoal and it was delicious. The grilled octopus was amazing and we shared the fusilli and the friend chicken and brother were excellent. Unlike our first visit, this time we had a table by the window and it was very nice.
If the service were better, I would give this place 5 stars, however it was clear that they are stronger in back of house, rather than the front. Our server had only fair knowledge of the menu and the preparations, in addition, when our appetizers took 40mins to come, she seemed unphased by it, saying that's just they way they group things in the kitchen. Thanks god the food was good when it came out! We went on a Saturday night, it was busy, but not crazy. I think they need a floor manager to oversee the service. Beautiful view of the river...we'll give it another try!
They say they are about local ingredients and being creative, might as well eaten at a diner. No creativity at all, club sandwich, grilled cheese? Very disappointing. Maybe dinner is more creative, but the lunch menu couldn't have been more boring.
Best feature is the veiw of the river.
Never heard of this but my sister lives in Morrisville. I loved the byob that kept the price down. Literally everything was absolutely delicious. The bread was worth paying for. The dishes weren't generous portions but it was honestly quite enough food . We'll definitely return.
Another great meal at this friendly place. Food is always top notch! My only complaint is they were out of bread-- but other parts of our meal were stupendous--particularly the pierogies with duck confit, asparagus, pasta with bacon, and the fried chicken with caramel. Hope to return soon (they "owe" us bread😁).
Always outstanding! Interesting dishes, amazing favors and great atmosphere! I would recommend the pirogi as a starter or the octopus, Absolutely amazing. The pasta dishes are awesome too! Save room for dessert because the donuts are heavenly! Very relaxing place.
Charcoal is a fantastic BYOB with. S'autofinancer views our over the Delaware River! While all of the food is a treat, I highly recommend the salmon and octopus! And - even for someone who rarely eats bread - the bread and butter they offer is honestly the best I've ever had! Our table order and devoured two portions! The doughnuts are also a treat if you are looking for a sweet to finish off your meal.
I was very impressed with the quality of the kitchen at Charcoal BYOB. The food was inventive and used very fresh seasonal ingredients. The staff was pleasant, and the view of the Delaware River was lovely. On a Tuesday night there weren't many other diners, and we could enjoy our meal and conversation in peace. I expect that given all the hard surfaces in the restaurant, if it were crowded, it would be extremely noisy. Accordingly, I would avoid going on a weekend.
Charcoal exceeded my expectations, and I definitely would be back.
This was our second attempt to like this restaurant, but we will not return. Food presentation is nice, but inferior ingredients (farm raised salmon) should not command the price tag. Service is blah, leaving diners feel less than special. We inquired about a dish that would typically be served hot, but was not. We were then informed, "oh yeah, that's a room temperature dish." We will not return.
