Great food, nothing was too much for the staff

Menu needs to be updated and several items on it stated that they were gluten free and they weren't. They should have been marked 'GF option'. I spoke to the manager who advised that they will update the menu. It was just lucky that I did ask questions before eating the food, my selections were fixed without any issues. Putting the above aside the quality of the food was great, my steak was one of the best I've had. My GF modified prawn entrée and brulee dessert were really tasty. My husband enjoyed all his courses. We would recommend to others and dine here again.
Hi Lisa, I note you review and feedback and did also see your review on Trip Advisor. As mentioned on my response on Trip Advisor, we appreciate you taking the time to provide your feedback, that has been passed on to the Manager who has actioned the menus and also to the Chef. I do however note your rating on value at 0/10 and find this somewhat confusing as you also state in your feedback that you would dine here again and that the meals were enjoyed. I would welcome the direct contact to discuss this point and can be contact on mobile (0414769669) or email (chris@bv.net.au)

Pretty bad when you spend $50 for a steak and you have to send it back because it’s not cooked right and almost stone cold before it gets to your table! The lady who served us was lovely but quality of food was not up to standard. Entrees hot and mains cold. Very disappointing for what you pay.

Service went a bit missing towards the end of our late lunch. The food was superb. The whole gold band snapper was great.

Nice location. Steak was unfortunately not well cooked. No favour, raw in the middle for a medium steak.

just terrible from the get go. Was meant to be a special evening for our daughter's 13th birthday but bad service, delayed and both overcooked/cold food after a 2-hour wait and to be surrounded by loud drunken old men it was nothing short of a disaster. Times like this sorry is not enough but we didn't even really receive that! A total disappoint that will see me never return there again
Good morning Kellie, thank you for taking the time to review and provide your feedback. We appreciate all forms of feedback and in this case, disappointed to read that you were far from happy with your experience. In my capacity in a Head Office role i attempt to make contact with all reviewers be it positive or negative. In this case, I would welcome the opportunity to discuss your experience in more detail personally with you and identify where the experience could have been improved. I can be contacted directly via email (chris@bv.net.au) or mobile phone (0414769669) and would appreciate the opportunity to discuss further.

About Char Restaurant

Nice to meat you... Be it an intimate meal for two, a formal business lunch or a night out with friends, Char Restaurant is the place to be seen. This unique and contemporary venue is truly one of a kind, delivering fresh local produce and innovative cuisine coupled with exceptional service and style. The restaurant itself is set in the grounds of the beautiful Admiralty House making it a stunning tranquil location for all occasions. The obvious thing to order is steak or seafood - both are prepared and presented to absolute perfection - chosen by esteemed restaurateur John Kilroy. Although the a la carte menu is very enticing desserts are also worth saving room for… there’s chocolate indulgence, creme brulee, banoffee pie plus a selection of cheeses! Best dish: steak of course !
