This was truly a meal to remember. The fall vegetable and tasso Rosotto was to die for. The filet barely needed a knife to cut it it was so tender. The sea bass was very good, but the desert was decadent. Try the tower of chocolate. The service was also very good, although the ambience was just a little lacking.

I like Charley G's. Its quite good. It's not great, but it is quite good. I've eaten here 4 or 5 times. Sometimes the portions can be a bit on the small size but generally the food is well prepared, the wait staff are attentive without being obtrusive, and the atmosphere is enjoyable.

A tough choice for me is when I am out of town for work is to locate a good restaurant that offers great food, a relaxing atmosphere coupled with a bar that serves the diner with a little lagniappe. Well, while I was in Lafayette on Wednesday I found such a place, Charlie G's. CG's features a bar that includes... More

Although we were under dressed, the hostess and staff made us feel comfortable! Excellent wine list and the Special of the night Red Snapper just melted in my mouth! Shrimp risotto was flavorful down to the last bite! Cheese cake was the perfect ending! Definitely going back to try that sea bass 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Our family went out for a nice summer evening and were treated to a fabulous meal. We each ordered a different fish dish...drum, salmon. Mahi mahi, and sea bass were all prepared with perfection. Then topped the evening off with wonderful desserts. The cocktail menu was equally impressive. Loved the atmosphere!

Two of us went for dinner. Nice wine list. We began with a nice salad with a delicious pecan vinegarette dressing. Then we ordered our entrees: one- a lobster pasta which my date said was very good. I had a filet steak cooked to perfection- melted in my mouth. My side was grits which were also very good. We shared... More

Food, atmosphere and service is GREAT. People love this place for dates and celebrating anniversaries. Dress accordingly or you will feel out of place. Drinks are also good and the bar is nice with piano music very often and not to loud.

We were there with about 40 folks and they had a preset menu...so take that into consideration.....the service was spectacular, the gumbo was spicy and the crab cakes very good. The atmosphere was very nice but not too stuffy. I could see going there for a variety of events, or even with kids at a high end

We went there to celebrate my son's birthday and had reservations. Upon arriving, we were seated directly and a waiter filled our water glasses. After waiting 10-12 minutes, we still did not have a waiter address our table--not even to see if we wanted drinks. My wife finally flagged down a passing waiter. It seems that no waiter had been...
