Pros: Good char broiled meats.

Cons: None that I experienced

Ordered the Asian steak salad. The only thing Asian about it must have been the guy who cooked it. The meat seemed to be poor quality and tough, almost like stew meat. It was also burned, but I guess with a name like Charcoal I should

I was excited to go there as I am a long time resident of Hollywood. Any time there is new business we try to support it. Charcoal was bad on every level. The strong charcoal odor when you get in, the tacky decor, the horrible attitude

Pros: Helpful Service

EMPTY is the best word to describe this place. How are they still open as the food and service is beyond WEAk? Way to go Brand Sutton as another restaurant closes or will close soon. How does a restaurant next to The Arclight close? Go to

I've only been here for drinks but the atmosphere was quite surprising. I was expecting a modern decor and was taken off guard by the cabin like ambiance. The drinks were great and the staff was friendly.

I've been 3 times. It's right next to the Arclight complex, so it slurps moviegoers in like a smokey black hole. The first 2 times we had decent food with HORRENDOUS service. So, my girl and I went back 2 months later hoping that the

Pros: There are pros working here

Cons: Raw Hamburgers

I was very weary of eating at Charcoal after reading some of the reviews on here, but it wasn't nearly as bad I thought it might be. (Then again, I don't count reviewing the "flamboyance" of the wait staff as helpful.) I made a

Cons: Overpriced, auto-grat

So I guess from the outside the place looks quite nice, and cozy, warm and romantic...but I do not recomment going there if you got asthma...since as you walk in, you are overwhelmed by the strong smell of fire and charcoal. The service

Let's start with the fact that when we came in, the music was so loud that I couldn't hear myself think. It turns out the latin Oompa Loompa sized DJ with a bad faux hawk was

Pros: Menu is good, but the execution of it is not.

Cons: Stay away from the midget manager and the cockatiel server!

After reading the other citysearch reviews, my husband and I were reluctant to try Charcoal but we are glad we did. We shared the wedge salad with blue cheese dressing, which was yummy. We also tried the artichoke dip, which was tasted

Pros: Best hamburger in town, great service, nice atmosphere, romantic

Cons: a little overpriced

Yeah, I said it. When in Los Angeles are you ever -allowed- to bear full-on plaid? It's getting cooler out, and the dim, [mesquite] smokey atmosphere of Charcoal begs for your ski lodge attire. But, that said, let's be real, Charcoal is

I eat at Charcoal frequently. I happen to work in the area so I drop by there for lunch at least once a week and for dinner on Friday evenings. I wasn't a fan of this place when they first opened (food would take too long, come out

Pros: Food, Service, Ambience (love the dim lights and candles throughout)

Cons: Music on weekend nights does get very loud, wait without a reservation on the weekends can also be a little long

.

One of the worst meals I've had in a long time and the service wasn't much better. The prices are insane for what they're offering. The lemon caper chicken is something you'd make for yourself at home only it would be 100 times better.

If you've got $15 burning a hole in your pocket and you like doughy bread that smells like charcoal and ahi tuna, ORDER THIS SANDWICH. \r

Otherwise steer clear of this overpriced joke of a Ralph's deli with leather couches.

Pros: nothing

while the food is pretty good, the horrible service completely ruins any desire to eat there. Having been to Charcoal (I call "Charhole") about four times now because I work in the hood, I can honestly say I will never be back. I gave

This establishment is a favorite of some friends, yet it was a mystery why. The service was...non-existant. Late-night on a weekday and the two bar staff couldn't handle the eight people there. After twenty minutes we asked for drinks

I have eaten at Charcoal twice. Last week, for a late lunch before the movies. I had a burger with sweet potato fries. The fries were great. The burger so-so. My friend had the crab burger and garlic fries and he liked them. So I thought

I can't believe that these people think that they are smarter than anyone else. What nonsense! Wait, the food is bad, the drinks are bad, the service is terrible, but we will change the name on citysearch and no one will figure it out.
