We love this place! The atmosphere is nice, the food is delicious, and Sunday brunch is a must. Don't pass up the scallops. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm.

We've eaten here many times over the years. Great lunch and dinner menu. Good seafood along with many other entrees worth trying. You also cannot go wrong with the Applewood Chicken Salad. Always a good meal!

I have never had a bad meal here, the bread alone is enough to go for with its wonderful sundried tomato oil dip. The staff is great and the lunch menu is perfect for ordering take out. Everything is house made, including the salad dressings!

We visited Charbonos for our son's birthday, and my husband's birthday. What a wonderful server he had. He was from England, and answered every question we had about the contents of our order. We were definitely impressed. The food was amazing.

We like the other restaurants owned by this group. This was out first visit to Charbonos. Was not a great first experience. Had to wait an hour for our food and the 2 out of the 3 entrees were lukewarm. They do have GREAT desserts. Management did try to make it up to us, so we will try again..............

This is by far my favorite restaurant in Avon. My husband and I are frequent visitors and we have yet to try something from the menu we didn't absolutely love. We always bring out-of-town guests here too and every one of them raves about their fantastic meal. Whatever you get, leave room for dessert even if that means taking home... More

We had dinner on a Friday evening. It was crowded but the wait was short. Our server informed us that Prime Rib was the special at $25. We thought it a bit pricey but decided to indulge. It seemed that all the servers were incredibly busy. We were finally treated to the best bread and oil dip in all Indianapolis.... More

We had 9 people in a party from age 3 to to age 71; everyone enjoyed their food. From rare prime rib, to medium rare sirloin, to medium fillet, everyone enjoyed the food. It was all cooked to order, and the spices complimented the meat without being overpowering. I would definitely go back for the steak! Some of the other... More

This restaurant has, by far, the best prime rib I've ever eaten. Or any steaks for that matter. The atmosphere is nice. The noise is low key. But, let's face it, what you really care about is the food. And you've come to the right place when you eat at Charbono's. Don't let the area scare you away. Yeah, it's... More

The food was very well presented and tasty. My soup was only lukewarm but everything else was very good. From where I was sitting, I could observe the wait staff preparing beverages in a small room. One male server came up behind a female server and began massaging her head - running his hands through her hair/ponytail and then her... More
