Chart House Restaurant - Boston
Nice brunchHad brunch with 3 children
. Good options. Great service . Good food. Nice ambience. Great location. Complimentary parking is a plus.
The only issue is that the kids menus have complimentary drinks only from the soda fountain. We had to pay extra 3-4$ for milk and lemonade a for the children. Unacceptable to promote soda drinks at this stage and age5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed everything about ourEnjoyed everything about our special lunch for my daughters graduation celebration. They even surprised us with a custom menu congratulating her on her special day. Nice touch and very unexpected. It made her feel special. Lava cake and key lime pie desserts ..yummy. Apps and dinners delicious.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Life to Old StandbyThis restaurant used to be a favorite, but we stopped going because it began to feel like a tourist trap, with mediocre and on occasion truly bad food, and rude or patronizing service. Our recent experience felt like the old days. We received a warm welcome, attentive service, the cocktails were excellent, and our mixed seafood grills were exceptional. We'll be back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMCruiseVery good. We ate here about 4-5 years ago. Good then, good now, would highly recommend.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had two special eventsWe had two special events to celebrate, a wedding and a graduation, and this was the perfect place. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. Our waitress could not have been better! Friendly and knowledgable.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the waitOur reservations were for 7:15 and did not get called to a table til 8:45. There was a large group that backed them up, but other than that it was great food, service and atmosphere I would return again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food Wine and Service~!I first experienced the Chart House in Florida many years ago. Since then I have gone to many other locations and all of them have been wonderful. I recently went to the Melbourne Chart House with my Grandson and the view was so beautiful. We all had a great time. He is five and I want to expose him to some of the best food and service there is. Thank you...
I look forward to new locations to try.
Susan LaGrande4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMone order with the salmonone order with the salmon was undercooked but corrected immediately. otherwise, everything was excellent. Stuart, waiter, was awesome.
we could tell the hostess was breaking in some new people and they were unaware of where to sit us when they sat us next to a large and loud party but we asked to sit at the next table to have a little buffer. we were accomodated and it was fine. they also forgot to give us the menus with the birthday girl's name but we had to ask.
those were all very minor. excellent time and will return shortly.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location in a historicGreat location in a historic building. Service was excellent and food was hot and very good.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere, excellentGreat atmosphere, excellent food. Restaurant is meant for enjoying good company and excellent good. Small bar scene downstairs was not a distraction. Celebrated family birthday. Birthday greeting was printed on the menu. Nice touch. It's the details that make a difference.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a first time at theThis was a first time at the Chart House. Food was excllent and not too expensive. The wait staff was very good . We did not feel rushed although we were attended to when needed, Will definitely recommend to friends and will return again.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Best Experience Ever!What a wonderful experience, one I will not soon forget. The menu actually said Happy Birthday on it. The food was just too good to put into words and our waiter could not have been more attentive. He even gave us a brief history of the building we were in. He made menu suggestions, but wasn't pushy about them. Again, the best experience and birthday I have had in some time. Our son loved it so much we promised that we would take him for his birthday next March. See you then....4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, althoughFood was delicious, although options/sides brought incorrectly - salsa not on the side, veggies instead of rice.... Waitstaff appropriately attentive.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Chart House has a greatThe Chart House has a great location on the water and a quant atmosphere inside. The food was very good and the waiter was attentive. Overall a good dining experience.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMade for a great Easter SundayMade for a great Easter Sunday afternoon gathering. Valet parking made it easy in and out. Very friendly and accommodating wait staff. A little bit of a wait for our table, but understandable due to the crowds for the Holiday. Menu was great as well as the food itself and our waiter Tony was magnificent. Way up on the third floor offered great views.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience overall wasOur experience overall was pretty good. Our reservations were for 2:30 on Easter Sunday, we didn't get seated until 3:00. We enjoyed a cocktail in bar area but it was very crowded and wished there were enough seating to relax since we had to wait after our reservation time.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMREAL FINE DININGWhile visiting for Easter, our daughter had made reservations after reading reviews and menu. We have would like to think that we know good fine dining. This place was excellent! The service was great, helpful and polite, but not overbearing. My wife and I both enjoyed the stuffed scrod and crab cakes. My daughter, being a chef herself and sometimes overly critical, raved about the Asian salmon. She had never had it cooked so perfectly and the flavors blended so well. If you enjoy fine dining and seafood, this place is it.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was great but it wasDinner was great but it was pretty noisy where we sat on the second floor. My mom was sitting across from me and she could not hear what we were saying. But the food was great, service was great so we were very happy with dinner.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe thought that the service,We thought that the service, food, and ambience were very good. The portions were perfect. The only thing that we could say was a negative was that the Mud Pie was so frozen that it was impossible to eat it. Maybe it should have been put in the microwave before being served so that the diner could enjoy their dessert.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed Restaurant Week diningEnjoyed Restaurant Week dining on a Friday night. Clam chowder was excellent, loaded with clams, though a bit on the salty side but that was fine with me, just kept dipping my bread in there to even it out. Ordered the fried calamari which was a little on the overly deep fried side, but still good. Had the prime rib, very tender and juicy. Molten lava cake for dessert was superb, but was just too full to enjoy it completely. Next time we'll skip on the extra app and just enjoy the meal. Service was excellent.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMa delicous night outWe sat at the bar when we arrived to have a couple cocktails and talk before dinner. The Tusca Lemondrops were delicious. The table was on the 3rd level, great ambiance, wait staff was most attentive and friendly. The dinner was absolutely fabulous from soup/salad to desserts.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEven though we dined fromEven though we dined from the Restaurant Week menu, the portions were huge and everything was prepared perfectly. The decor was very warm and pleasing. The only downside was that it was very crowded and the noise level was high. But I would definitely return and also recommend this place.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. WeGreat food and service. We were very pleased and will certainly return in the future3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic restaurant withFantastic restaurant with amazing food. We went for a birthday celebration. They gave us a copy of the menu from that evening with a b-day message on it and a candle in the dessert. No loud, brash singing from the wait staff.

And the clam chowder was also one of the best around -- not at all chewy.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat lunch experiencegreat selection of food that was available for the restaurant week menu. Definitely so worth it. The clam chowder was full of clams but a bit too salty. the lobster roll was awesome. The shrimp scampi also tasted really good. i ordered the lava cake but it was dry and there was no "lava". My sis' mudpie was so good. I didn't expect it to be so good. It was coffee ice cream cut into a peculiar shape on chocolate crust.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe ambiance was great! QuietThe ambiance was great! Quiet and beautiful location!

The wait wasn't too bad when we got there, but we did have to wait about 10 minutes past our reservation. We sat at the bar and the drinks were fantastic! The bar tender was very friendly and made the time go by quickly. We then had our main course upstairs and the waiter was fantastic also! Very attentive. And of course, the food out OUTSTANDING! Next time we're in Boston we will come back here instead of trying something new. YUM!!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
