    Our experience with our waitress was good, until the end. It is a very busy restaurant and we felt we were very rudely rushed out at the end. I will continue to go back, but this one if my friends 1st time there and she will not return.

    My husband took me here for my birthday. Calamari was tasty Rhode Island style. The ravioli's was my choice for dinner it was the special.The cheese sauce was a little thin. My husband got the 14 oz Rib Eye not cheap it was the special. The sauce was suppose to be spicey. We didn't taste anything that was spicey. Wine glasses had water spots on them. My glass was really bad. Our waitress tried hard,but I think she was overwhelmed. Service was slow went on a Sunday night at 5:30pm. We did get a free bottle of wine with our entrees (special) on Sunday nights. Overall it was good. On a scale from 1-10 I would give it a 5. Would go back and try it again.

    Chardonnay's was very attentive to my food allergies and the food and service were excellent! Everyone's food was delicious and cooked perfectly. The atmosphere was good and seating was comfortable. The only problem we found was that it was difficult to have a conversation because the noise level was very high. It seemed due to the structure of the building more that due to the dining crowd. We did, very much enjoy our dinner at the restaurant.

    I thoroughly enjoy Chardonnay's every time I go. It's my second favorite restaurant! My boyfriend however had never been and he was in the mood for sushi. He ordered the spicy tuna roll and the combination (spicy tuna / California roll) he was disappointed when he tried the spicy tuna, he ate the combination rolls but left the spicy tuna ones and said "I won't be getting that again", placed one plate in top of the other and set it aside. Our WONDERFUL server Gina took it away and promptly came back to ask if something was wrong with the sushi? Jack told her it wasn't good and she apologized (he said it wasn't her fault) and took it off the bill. Thanks to Gina she earned a +20% tip and my boyfriend will give it a second chance!

    the restaurant is great. phenomenal food. actually surprisingly good for such a large menu and casual atmosphere. their food could compete with some of the best. casual dark atmosphere. good service. active bar. good wine pours. only con is that it can be loud for those who are looking for a cozy romantic evening or older folks like my mom who struggled to hear us over the noise. but lively atmosphere.

    My husband and I made reservations to have dinner with some good friends. We wanted somewhere that we knew had a lively atmosphere and great food. Our table was ready when we arrived early, and our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the foods we questioned. We usually dine with groups and enjoy taking our three adult daughters and their spouses to Chardonnay's for a special treat when we can get everyone together. Always a great experience.

    Dinner was excellent, it was our anniversary, and they gave us a wonderful table away from the noisy bar. The stressful part of the night was that a woman left her dog in the truck while she enjoyed happy hour. The staff did what they could to keep her going out to check on him.

    We requested a quiet table, which is non-existent at Chardonnay's, however, the host did give us a nice table in a quieter section of the restaurant, so we were able to converse without shouting. The food was very good, but the service was slow, and the order in which the food was brought out, was not to our liking (salad last, instead of first, e.g.). There was no bread served; we had to request it. It was a Monday night, and busy, but not as busy as at other times we have been there, so couldn't understand the slow service.

    Chardonnay's is always a favorite restaurant and we often drive from Narragansett, RI to dine there. We had our grandson and requested a "corner" table to keep him contained and we were given a perfect table by the gracious hostess. Our server was personable and very attentive to us during the whole meal. Everyone at our table had a delicious meal and the lobster macaroni & cheese was terrific and what a good portion! We will continue to use Open Table to make reservations because the restaurants seem to really cater to its customers.

    We were staying at the Ramada Inn nearby and found Chardonnays just up the road. We reserved a table and were very happy with our dining experience. The food was outstanding, portions were large, and the service was great. The restaurant is noisy though as several reviews had warned. We will certainly dine there again the next time we are in the area.

You can tell that by the fact that it is always packed! If you don't have a res and it's prime time expect to wait. The good news is that it is worth the wait! Enjoy!

    Chardonnay's is a lively hot spot in the sleepy town of Seekonk. It has a very busy and loud bar scene and is a place for people to meet up after work and enjoy the great drinks at the bar and delicious appetizers ( even a great Sushi selection). The prices are a bit high for the area, but it is the only up-scale restaurant in town other then traveling into Providence. Food is above average, but service can be slow on a busy night. Not a big menu, but good choices and freshly prepare meals with very fresh ingredients. Every time a group of us go, we always say "why don't we come here more often?". Sunday's are a good time to try it out because they offer a free bottle of wine with 2 entrees..a big plus!

    We have been to this restaurant over 40 times I would say, and never had a bad experience, never sent anything back to the kitchen, the service is great, food comes quickly and the menu is really good. It is our favorite restaurant, always great specials. My father is a world traveler and spent a couple of years living in Italy. He tries risotto wherever he goes and was here visiting from England recently. Chardonnays had a seafood risotto special and he picked it of course. He said it was the best he has ever had. We always bring our friends here. I cannot say enough great things about this place.

    We selected Chardonnay's as the place to celebrate our 41 wedding anniversary on a Thursday night. The food was excellent and the waitress was outstanding. Our waitress, Michelle, was professional, attentive and friendly. We didn't feel rushed. The noise level was lower than when we had gone previously on a weekend night ... which made it great for talking. It was a great experience.
