Charcoal BYOB Ratings and Reviews
One of my favorite breakfast lunch spots, but decided to do dinner for a special occasion. The meal was outrageously good. The octopus appetizer was excellent and the salmon was perfectly done. The birthday lady got the hanger steak which was beautifully seasoned and exceptionally tasty. The dinner progressed slightly slow, but it gave us enough time to work through a second bottle so no one minded. Will be back again soon.
Nice view, ambience, but food is incredibly salty. Also menu is nothing like it indicates online. Only three entries, no "normal salad", kale salad left a lot to be desired. Hanger steak had so many different spices on it you didn't know what you were eating. People were very friendly, service good, but eat before you go.
We had gone several times for breakfast, which is always excellent. We decided one night to try dinner. We were not disappointed. They offer a small menu, and most of the offerings come in small plate or entree sizes. The Griggstown fried chicken was unbelievably moist and tasty. We will definitely go back for dinner. And will definitely try their lunch menu as well.
We were not rushed. Service was attentive but not pushy. Limited menu was refreshing, allowing us to enjoy our conversation without needing to "study" the menu. Meals smallish but delicious. Surprisingly pleasantly quiet space. Would definitely return and recommend.
The food was very good. It is a little pricy for the kind of place it is. You have to pay for bread. I thought that was strange. Everything is Ala Carte. You can order small plates here which is nice, but the regular sized entrees weren't quite enough. I had Salmon that was amazing, but it came with Kale and Cauliflower and there were about 3 pieces of each.
Four of us drive to Charcoal following an afternoon opera at the Met in NYC. We has a great table with views of the Delaware. Brought some nice wines. But the star of the evening was the delicious, well prepared dishes. The bread, the octopus, the old bay gnocchi, the trenne pasta, the Korean fried chicken and many other dishes that we shared were all fabulous. Can't wait for our next visit.
The menu was small but with nice variety. The only minor disappointment was the $5 charge for the four slices of in-house baked sourdough bread. The bread was very good with a crisp crust. With only four slices we had to order 2 portions.
The appetizers ordered included a kale and beet salad (with feta, puffed quinoa and a very tasty buttermilk dressing), a butterhead and radicchio salad with pears, pistachios, blue cheese and basil, BBQ grilled octopus with ham hocks and grits, and smoked trout beignets. We also had two half portions of pastas for appetizers. They were an excellent clam and prosciutto pasta dish and equally as good chicken, mushroom pasta dish in a Marsala sauce. We all tasted each of the appetizers and truly enjoyed the flavor of each of them.
For our main meals we were able to try each of the four entrees offered plus one of the four pasta dishes. Although the filet of beef was extremely pricey ($47) the meat was tender and cooked exactly as ordered medium rare. The pan seared salmon was accompanied with roasted cauliflower and sautéed kale with a dill cream sauce. The pork dish was Kung Pao Pork with fried peanuts, rice and scallions. The spicy Korean fried chicken was actually the tastiest meal. The final entrée that was ordered was a full portion of the Pappardelle Au Poivre with mustard and braised short ribs. We agreed that all of the entrees were prepared properly and were very good.
We barely had room for anything else, but we could not pass up dessert. We all sampled the four desserts that were on the menu: The Millionaire Rice Krispy Squares which were coated in delectable chocolate, the lemon curd with cranberries a meringue top, the Polenta Budino containing chocolate mousse and walnuts, and the exceptional warm brioche doughnuts with coffee caramel sauce were all deemed delicious.
The restaurant was a little expensive, but definitely deserves a visit. With tax and tip, we spent $137 per couple.
Everything was so delicious! Brussel sprout appetizer, house made pasta dishes, Korean chicken, kung pao pork and don't even get me started on the desserts! Make sure to save room for dessert. We got a few for the table and I seriously couldn't pick a fav!! Homemade donut with caramel sauce, lemon curd dessert, chocolate and caramel covered rice crispy bar. Mmmm.
Another awesome meal. The brussels sprouts were tasty and the A1 pasta and chicken with marsala (and other ingredients) pasta were also delicious. Entrees of salmon, steak, and Kung Pao pork were well spiced and accompanied by great veggies. Two new desserts - tiramisu truffles and a lemon curd were great to have with the traditional donuts. It was fun to introduce friends to this fantastic dining experience. The third bell from Inquirer food critic Craig LaBan is well-deserved.
Outstanding food experience--loved everything--2 of us shared 1 app, 1 pasta full dish and 1 main course (had leftovers) and 1 dessert for a very reasonable price. They even printed Happy Birthday on our menus!! BYOB makes it even a better value. Highly recommended!
I guess it was an OFF night!
We haven't been here for dinner recently; but have eaten lunch several times in the past month and loved it.
So not sure what happened but...
Service--the server was pleasant but inattentive and perhaps inexperienced.
Very limited menu-no specials; no soups.
Food took a fairly long time to come out -- our server should have checked in with us and told us what was happening.
However, the food was really good and well prepared. We didn't love the sriracha pasta--too bland for our tastes but all was fresh and clearly made to order.
Will def be back for lunch.
Might consider dinner on a weekend night to see if this was an aberration but for close to $200 for 4 people including tip we feel that we were let down this time.
