We ordered all of the small plates but 2 of them and they where all truly amazing. We can’t wait to go back again.
We've been there a few times. The cocktails are well done and the tuna tartare appetizer is awesome. The rest of the food is meh. At least the prices are reasonable.
We all loved the tangy and savory sauces of our meals, especially the dumplings, KFC chicken and ribs. Flavor sensations!
Food was incredible. We had a server at the bar named tori who was incredible and additionally we had a server named Alaina who served our table and they were both incredible. We had the KFC wings and edamame for an appetizer and they were both amazing, the KFC wings stood out just because they were incredible. The entrees were all amazing, we had the bulgogi and the short rips.
Always great food, friendly service, nice ambience! High on my list of “repeat” MKE favorites in the Historic Third Ward.
Never been here before, but loved it. Will definitely bring friends. Everything was fantabulous. Our special birthday dinner included: KFC Wings, Leeky Chicken, Shishito Cauliflower, Beef Bulgogi. Not a lot of vegetarian options but there are a few. The food was amazing though. We will definitely be back.
We had a nice dinner. The only thing that was strange was that my entree came to the table before the appetizer. I was taken by surprise and called my waitress to the table to ask why it came out of order. She asked me if I wanted it taken back to the kitchen. I asked, “So it can sit und some heating lamps?” She was evasive and when she took it back, I could see it sitting under the heat lamps because I had direct view to the kitchen. The wrong appetizer came several minutes later and the suos chef came out to pull it back. The correct appetizer came a few minutes later. Within two minutes my entree came out, well before we finished the appetizer. The greens on my plate had gotten hot and lost the effect of being in the dish. I didn’t complain again at the time as I didn’t want to ruin the night with my wife. I think the restaurant is very nice. My waitress was less so.
Amazing food will be back again soon
I was extremely impressed with the quality and authenticity of Char’d’s dining experience!
The service and the ambience was amazing. Our waitress was very informative and added a little humor to her service. The kfc wings were amazing. And the Golbi Jim was amazing. I would highly recommend and will be returning
Excellent food, unique dishes. One of MKE’s treasures
Never disappoints and always a treat to dine there
Love the look of the place. The bartender was so nice, made you feel welcome right away. The waitress gave us space to enjoy our meal. We had small plates - both the dumplings and the tuna tartar were excellent! the scallion pancakes were way to greasy. I would recommend this place and would go back.
Very well executed food and a creative cocktail list. I particularly liked the PB&J Old Fashioned, good wine list as well. Highly reco if you are in MKE
Our waitress was very welcoming and was patient as our final lunch guest came to join us.
She was able to describe many of the entrées that we were interested in ordering. She was also very apologetic about one entrée that was not available. Overall the food was delicious, we enjoyed our time and didn’t feel rushed in anyway.
Not a place for vegetarians. There are just three dishes in the menu that are vegetarian friendly and I'm not even talking about vegans
Great atmosphere. I was a little disappointed that my husband and I waited probably 10 + minutes for a waitress to come and get our drink orders. We also had reservations and it wasn’t even that busy when we initially sat down. But, overall the food was delicious and pricing was fair! I will totally be back again.
Of the four of us- three had never been to Char'd. They were all pleased and it was as good as I remembered. Sophia was our waitress. She gave good descriptions of the food and drink menu. Sophia was attentive without being intrusive. The food was incredible. Each dish was distinctive and had it's own flavors. The portions were big enough for sharing. We had the wings as an appetizer- good presentation and flavor.
Server was really knowledgeable and gave great recommendations!
We went for the Sunday authentic Korean meal to celebrate a friend’s birthday. The service, food and atmosphere were excellent. They took fantastic care of us - would definitely recommend for groups of all sizes.
Went here on the weekend with my wife for the first time expecting something great based on feedback of friends. I actually asked them what they were talking about. The food is unique I give them that but I feel like the menu and whole restaurant is just missing something. I felt like I was eating in a trendy cafeteria at a university. Not sure if that is the designed feel or if it is trying to be something different than that?? Giving this place 3 stars is even being nice.
The food is absolutely delicious. Flavorful, lovely.
The food was absolutely delicious. My friend and I decided we MUST go back so we can try everything on the menu. The Sunday specials were fantastic - they came with some great little side salads that were all fantastic. Between the two of us, we had the Galbi Tang (beef short ribs soup), beef fried rice (both of our favorites) and the char'd dumplings!
Love the atmosphere, the food was amazing but very spicy. Would recommend!
Average is the best description. Food arrived before drinks and all at once. Better to space things out. Food wasn’t hot and spice levels were just “meh”. Eclectic decor that doesn’t work. One and done for me.
Great service and great food!
Enjoyed my “birthday” dinner there🎉:)
Excellent food and really fun experience. The server's recommendations were our favorite things we ordered. The perfect amount of spicy and great flavors!
Loved the food and the vibe. Contemporary design and just fabulous food at reasonable prices.
I had high hopes for this restaurant, however, they came crashing & burning down. We ordered 4 tapas, and All of them came out cold. We ordered the shrimp which said it contained 7 pieces (random #) and we received 4 1/2. Maybe we should’ve ordered regular meals, but everything that came out was not as described in the menu. I would’ve loved to be able to say I want to go back, but I don’t think I’ll ever go back.
Pretty solid fare, but nothing new. Most of our dishes were deep fried or pretty heavy/fatty, with a limited selection of the usual pickled accoutrements. I also wish there were more gluten free and vegan options. Worth a try, unless you're like our table neighbor who asked for no garlic -- then this place is probably not for you.
Very poor experience. Our son cannot have garlic in his food. Even those not listed with garlic had garlic in them . We asked for a simple stir fry without garlic. This was not accomplished without two tries. My son’s order came 30 minutes after the rest of ours. The restaurant had to be more flexible with food allergies. This was our worst dining experience ever.
Awesome! Generous portions. Good wait staff. Delicious.
First time and I’ll be back. I wish they had them noodle dish chop chai.
Great place to try Korean takes on staple dishes. Very good leeky chicken and churro dessert
Good environment, good food. An enjoyable dining experience.
We love Char'd but the food was not as good as normal. We had the dumplings-always a fave & very good, the shrimp-way too breaded, beef kimchi rice bowl-so loaded with kimchi it was so rich and salty but not in the best way.
Food was good, very interesting flavors and combinations. Great sauces and soups. They need more support in their wine list and quality cocktails. In general, the overall experience was a bit flat and not memorable but regardless, really great food.
food ok but we’re expecting better
We discovered Char'd on a business trip to Milwaukee a few weeks ago and have made it staple for return trips. The food is amazing and you really can't order a bad dish - it doesn't exist on the menu!
