The autumn/winter menu is fantastic with original dishes and the chicken curry is "to die for!"

Waitress and waitors were confused when we showed up at their opening time and asked us what we needed when we had a reservation. Our food was mediocre, french fries and chips were served as sides, ok service.

We arrived and ordered. I ordered a steak. Medium rare. As did my son. His arrived medium. Mine was medium well. I had reviewed with the waitress what the restaurant considered medium rare prior to ordering. I sent it back. Ten minutes later the waitress arrived with a menu. The chef stated that this was how he cooked medium rare (there was not a hint of red). And he didn’t want to “waste” another steak so I needed to order something else. I refused and asked for a new steak cooked properly. Fifteen minutes passed. No steak. So I went in to look for it (we were seated outside). An extremely rude, young French male waiter to me that HE saw the steak and considered it medium rare. I told him that, as he was not my waiter, I wasn’t interested in his opinion, which was wrong at any rate. (By the way when I sent the steak back, the waitress who retrieved it looked at and apologized that it was so over cooked). At this point, an extremely rude female bartender decided to get involved and again attacked me verbally. Ultimately the new steak came out, cooked perfectly. I assume the chef checked YouTube to see how to cook a medium rare steak. The issue isn’t the original overcooked meat. The attitudes were beyond disrespectful and disgusting. I would NEVER go back.

We waited over 1 hour for our food after we placed the order. We asked for bread for 7 people and they gave us 1 small dish with 4 small baguettes. when I asked for another order of bread server brought us 1 stale small baguette. My entrée was delicious ( Cajun chicken ) however my wife's steak was inedible because it was over cooked.
The server asked my wife if she wanted to take her steak home , my wife replied its inedible. Why would I want to take it home. Finally we asked to speak with the owner, he came and we explained the situation. He showed no empathy, said sorry callously, and walked away. The server said afterwards that he took the steak off the bill. After we paid the bill another server came with a dish of bread and asked if we ordered bread. We just laughed. The sad part was that last September, we had a great experience and this year we brought our friends to experience a disappointing visit. I don't know if I will try it again. The service was very disappointing

Steak was GREAT but prices are over the top... $8 for an ice tea which was charged again for the second glass. Not necessary to do that..

While everything in regards to our meal was fantastic, I do need to comment on the price of a normal cocktail. While I understand that I was in the Hamptons, it is grossly obscene to charge $24 for an Aperol spritz anywhere! The one cocktail cost more than our appetizer salad at $18 or dessert at $18. Totally get wanting to make a profit,…but really?

I usually love this restaurant despite having a waitress committed credit card fraud 2 years ago by adjusting her tip, but we met the owner last night who could not have been ruder to my family. the waiter was kind and apologetic but the food was wrong which added insult to injury for the treatment by the owner. I never leave reviews but this was just too much.

Wait staff and hostess were incredible- kind, accommodating, understanding, helpful. Owner was an jerk who clearly operated from a place of fear with his staff, yelling at us for asking to increase our table to 8 people in a nearly empty dining room, and then yelling at his staff for trying to allow it. It was embarrassing for him. I would have left except I wanted to support his kind staff. The owner ruined the entire experience and we all left with a bad taste because of him. Would not recommend. His staff should look elsewhere for work.

1- started out ok with waiter bringing drinks.
2- ordered salad for appetizer to be split for 2. Salad arrived but NOT split. When we reminded server to split it for us, he didn’t say there was an $8 split fee; surprise on the final bill.
3- salad was good recipe but too much blue cheese.
4-both of us ordered lamb ribs with risotto. One was to be medium. One was to be medium rare.
5- we waited at least 45 minutes. The WAITER NEVER came to tell us there was a delay in the kitchen or apologize for delay. When we summoned him, he just said the kitchen was overwhelmed, and there were lot of customers- NOT what we wanted to hear. Were we not as important as the other customers??
6-The waiter basically hid from sight and about 7 minutes later the main courses were delivered.
7-the medium was well done. The medium rare was well done, no taste, and somewhat tough.
8- the risotto was clumpy and bitter.
8-given that we had wished so long and it was late, we were not going to send them back to the kitchen. When we told the waiter , he discussed with the chef. He returned with an apology from the chef and reiterated that there were alot of customers! NOT adequate or appropriate response. He talked to the Maitre D’ire , who said just offer them a drink or dessert.
We already had drinks- why would we want another drink? Now, these lamb chops were some of the most expensive meals on the menu- $42. We were insulted that no further concession was offered, the M.D. did not come over himself to discuss or apologize. That is definitely not behavior worthy of a $157 meal.
9- the last time we went to Le Charlot, we had difficulty with the service.
We will never go to Le Charlot ever again. We would sooner go to McDonalds.

While the food was good, the reception we received on entering the restaurant was terrible and offensive. The maitre'd was blocking the entrance talking loudly to some potential diners. I saw my wife at a table and asked him to excuse me so I could get around him. He became offended and later came to our table and chastised me for asking to be excused. I would have walked out but my wife was hungry and did not want to find another restaurant. I do not remember ever being so rudely treated in any other restaurant.
In addition, the noise level was so high we had to lean across the table to converse. The cost was also a problem. My wife asked for a salad instead of fries with her steak. We were charged an additional $8 for a handful of lettuce - that waiter, who was very good--warned us of the additional charge.

Service was slow even with very few people there initially (we had a 6:15 reservation). The cajun chicken is prepared much better at their sister restaurant LeBilboquet.

This is a very bouncy and noisy blast of fun.

It takes the second cocktail to kick in for the noise level to soften, but the food is bistro good and a very eclectic group of patrons makes this a fun night out.

I wouldn't propose here but for a couple who knows how to lip read it is a happy vibe.

Non existent service. Had to flag someone for water, dessert, the check. Thought it would be easier to just order bottled water since we weren’t getting it otherwise- $14.00 per bottle! Awful especially for a birthday celebration!

Our overall experience for Father's Day was wonderful.
The host was welcoming and totally in charge of making sure everything ran smoothly during our meal. Our server was knowledgeable about the menu, friendly and efficient.
And delicious mussels and fries topped off our lunch!

We waited an hour for our food and when it arrived it was terrible. The chicken curry was over cooked and my friend left half of it. The lobster salad was a joke… two tiny slivers of lobster… the only good dish there are the mussels. None of us would ever dine there again.
