Diner Reviews
  • "Affordable, quality dining based on this single experience. The seafood was great!! I intend to go again, soon."

  • "I never knew this hotel existed on the coast. It is set in the middle of housing development. A very nice Hilton! Chandler's is good restaurant"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "We wanted to hear Peter Pupping and his band play, as we are friends of his and hear him play often. We sat on the patio, but in a glassed in area that was part of the dining room. We were out of the hot sun and could hear the music very well. The food was delicious! Lots of choices for hungry and not so hungry people! We will definitely return!"

  • "We met friends for happy hour and enjoyed the outdoor entertainment. Delicious truffle fries are available at happy hour discount and there is a daily vegan soup! The service was excellent. Thank you, Crystal!! Beautiful view! Perfect vacation/stay-cation spot. We plan to return!"

  • "I was celebrating a friend's birthday, and had lunch with her at Chandler's. We sat on the outdoor deck (fantastic view of the ocean!). The food was amazing - both ordered quiches and were ooh-ing and ah-ing over the flakiness of the crust and how light and fluffy the quiches were. The waiter was very helpful and out to-go dessert of the chocolate mousse was to die for! Would definitely recommend this spot for lunch!"

  • "Had an excellent view of the sun as it set, the food was very good, and the service good too. A great undiscovered spot for a nice meal and a fine view of the sunset."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "The oceanfront view is partially obstructed by the trailer park between the hotel and the ocean. The food is not quite Denny's quality."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "I can't say enough about this place other that I'll be back. We love the lobster tacos. The beautiful view and nice service"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "My husband and I celebrated our Anniversary at Chandler's for the first time, and it was amazing! from the minute we walked in to the last minute before we left, it was a very welcoming experience. Our server, Kyle was awesome. The food was excellent, and I can't wait to go back."

  • "Wow! Wonderful food, service , view made for a very special evening."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Chose Chandler's at the last minute to celebrate a quiet birthday. It was quiet in the restaurant being summer, across from the beach and tourist season but the service was spectacular, attentive and the food was amazing. Recommend the melt in your mouth scallops, the sea bass was light & cooked perfectly and the bed of spinach & mushrooms it was served on was seasoned perfectly. The rib eye was cooked to a perfect medium and the truffle oil fries were excessive but so yummy! Enjoyed the wine pairing with the Chandler's Experience and relatively inexpensive for the pairing. Will definitely be back!"

  • "I have been meaning to visit this restaurant since it opened last year, and Friday evening I finally made it here. We were seated on the outside and the only caveat I have about this place is that there is no sun screen on the patio, so if it's summer and the sun is going down, it's right in your face. That said, the patio is lovely, the view is great, the food is quite good and the service was great. So they should get a 1/2 star off for the sun in the face, but other than that, everything was very enjoyable, if you accept the rather high prices for a place like this. I don't mind, because there are so few good places in Carlsbad, and I will be back. The best dish was the crab-crusted sea bass. Interior seating was very noisy."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Came here after the track, lots of cool relaxing areas to sit after a hot day in the sun. I love the lobster tacos. I can't stop eating the fresh bread and the bartender H is the best around. We will be back soon."

  • "To any given reader, if you prefer to have a long standing happy relationship that speaks genuine admiration and Amore for your spouse, make a private setting at this location for that special day. The night was so great (host, food, server's, starters, drinks and main course) I could've married my wife again. Having a starter with their great selection of drinks with a bodacious view of the Pacific accented with the ocean trade-breeze was Perfectooo! Fish and meat selection was sumptuous, I was specific in what we wanted and nice thing was the menu on their website was accurate in comparison to what we saw in person. From previous venues this has no always been my experience. I will probably return & stay on the premises for a nightcap"

  • "Enjoy the well appointed hotel lobby and view as you enter and find your spot to eat a bite for lunch or dinner. Always a nice greeting, good food and great service. Our server, Tracy was delightful. A minor problem developed with over-cooked food and was resolved immediately. Can't beat that."

  • "Had a great experience at Chandler's. Food was delicious, server was friendly and engaging. Loved the seating outside listening to the ocean. If you're looking for a casual romantic dinner that feels welcoming and not pretentious, this is a great neighborhood gem. Thank you for a great dinner experience."

  • "The food here is always excellent, and so is the service. The wine list is marked up less than other restaurants in the same local and competitive class. In addition, the wine list includes some hard to find and hard to get wines from the Central Coast, with very attractive pricing for a restaurant."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Food was good (nothing great jumped out), beautiful restaurant and view, waited almost 10 min to get our first drink order and had to ask for our waitress out on the patio. She was very nice but not very attentive and we even had to hunt her down for our check. This was our first time at Chandler's for a night out and not the greatest. We may give it one more try but again just wasn't impressed considering all the nice little places around at about the same price point."

  • "Having dined at this Chandler's before, both my wife and I were a little disappointed with the experience. The lobster egg rolls were basically tasteless. Our server had high praises for the "bass" dish so we ordered that. It was merely OK. The presentation was very mediocre and the fish was a little dry and without a great taste. So all in all, not too good. Atmosphere is always great there. The restaurant was hopping. But sadly, the food was ordinary."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "If they continue on this road, this hotel and restaurant are not going to make it. There is nothing special about the ambiance nor the food to bring me back here. Management needs to re-think this place. They scheduled a fire alarm test during the LUNCH HOUR when the restaurant had diners. The noise was painful, it went on for over a minute and then got tested again. We questioned why they did it during lunch time and the manager told us it was a good time for him. The food was not good, the waitress was brand new and tried but I have a feeling she is not getting much support. Poor management!!"
    Dined on 5/19/2014
  • "Enjoyed the fish of the day, halibut - prepared extremely well; 'white' pizza was tasty and filled with great veggies. Great service and a quiet table away from the noise of the lunch crowd made this meal extra special. "
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "We came here for dinner on Mother's Day and had a wonderful experience. All of the staff were friendly and attentive and our server was fantastic. They were very accommodating for my gluten-free needs as well and they are willing to alter pretty much any dish on the menu to make it gluten-free, verifying with the kitchen what can and cannot be done. They have a very good wine list and signature cocktail list, too. I had the burrata and tomato salad - so good - and the diver scallops, which were some of the best scallops I've ever had. My husband had the crab-crusted sea bass which he proclaimed as the best sea bass he's ever had. Everything was perfectly prepared and incredibly flavorful and the proportions were spot-on. Loved our dinner!"
