Best filet ever and they have bernaise sauce upon request. Also Charbonos makes the best garlic mashed potatoes. The salads are fresh and the dressings are very good. I love the crab cake also, but sometimes it can taste a bit scorched. My husband loves the cheeseburgers here. We were just here for mother's day weekend. We had reservations and were seated right away. We take our 9 year old along. They do have a children's menu.

Best scallops we have had in Indiana, but we left rather hungry for a $20 a plate dinner. There were 6 nice sized scallops ( maybe 3cm diameter each) but the arugula slaw was more of a garnish, and the risoto was tasty but rather a small portion. Huge plate though. Wonderful bread which is good because otherwise not much food. Excellent dipping sauce.

The manager was very apologetic about the nasty long hair my teenaged son found in his gourmet pizza. The pizza charge was voluntarily removed from our bill, and a hair in food is not the worst thing, but it did gross us some of our party. I suppose this can happen anywhere and they handled it well, but my son says even apart from the hair, he much prefers the more classic Papa John's cheese pizza available next door. Too much fresh garlic,fresh chopped tomatoes instead of sauce, too little cheese, too much grease, and not enough elasticity in the Charbonos' pizza.

The service was prompt and attentive. We've also been there for lunch which is a better value. The steak salads are especially good. Overall trendy,fresh food with friendly service.

My friends and I checked it out because we heard the food is great. We weren't disappointed. The food tasted amazing especially for a restaurant in Avon. However some of the food portions were small. My friend had a small pasta that wasn't all the filling. My other had a spinach sandwich that looked great and I had a Greek type pizza which was a very good portion. We will definitely go back.

It's is a little fancy menu-wise for me but everything on the menu is good and well prepared. My wife loves it which explains the VIP card and the fact we are on our third reward.
