Chart House Restaurant - Cardiff
Probably the best MacadamiaProbably the best Macadamia Crusted Ahi and spinach salad I've eaten in San Diego6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat anniversary nightI decided to book the Chart House for our 28th anniversay after exploring my options online "top seafood resturants in San Diego". I'm glad I made that choice. Our reservation ran a little late but that gave us a chance to have a cocktail I the bar lounge & take in the scenery. Our dinners were very prompted & gave us time to enjoy some conversation before it. I would highly recommend the pan seared scallops with wasabi mashed potato. The overall experience was enjoyable, it was a bit crowded but our anniversary happens to run on Father's Day weekend.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a beautiful evening!The food and service at the Chart House are reliably excellent. The location and seat alongside the sea are awe-inspiring. It is such a treat!
The crab-stuffed shrimp was excellent and beautifully presented. The salmon was delicious. What a beautiful evening!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe decor seemed a littleThe decor seemed a little dated with the "Las Vegas" carpet but the food was delicious as always.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMy guests from out of townMy guests from out of town loved the scenic view and enjoyed the food...except the asperagus was not cooked enough...
the prime rib was cooked right and tasty.
had a relaxing time.....6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMchartgreat place for lunch... good food and good service; excellent location. wine list is decent, has full bar as well.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Filet MignonThe Filet was out of this world last night. Hats off to the chef!!!!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food but unattentive serviceI continually choose the Chart House for special occasions or a consistently great meal. Unfortunately, this was the second time in 6 months that the service was fair to poor. Drinks came out slowly. Refills on ice tea had to repeatedly be requested. After asking for sweetener for the tea and bread, the request had to be made again and again. Requests had to be made for steak knives for the prime rib. The waiter stood against the wall and yukked it up with other waiters while we waited for simple requested foods. The "helpers" delivering the salad and meals were more responsive and interested in how our meal was. The wait staff was on auto-pilot again and we will probably stick to Peohe for future meals.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMChain Restaurant Not BadFor a Restaurant owned by a big chain things are pretty good. My second trip back and I will go again. The view is great !!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMChart houseSpent a leisure Saturday afternoon catching up with a friend. No one rushed us after our meal, we lingered for a couple of hours and the service never faltered
Great ocean views, fun people watching.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular!Amazing view. Great for special occasions. A bit pricey but what do you expect with such great view. Can't get any closer to the ocean than that. Without the glass window, we'll be feeling the ocean spray. Wonderful food, great service and ambience. Great experience. Overall, price, food, service, and view are all thumbs up.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional and low keyThe salad was exceptional and pizza was divine. I love going here with special people in my life.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing viewWe sat next to the open door/window giving us the feel and view of the beach. The staff was very friendly. The clam chowder is spectacular. All the food we ate was great! We will definitely be back!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat oceanfront view. NiceGreat oceanfront view. Nice to see the waves crashing against shoreline while dining5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful anniversary celebrationBeautiful scenic view and great food & service to boot! We have made a habit of returning to this place every time we are in the Carlsbad area.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMA real treatWe rarely come because it's so expensive,but when we do it is worth it because of the great food and the location right on the beach. We went early (5:30) on a Friday though we had reservations for 6. All but one of the ocean view window seats was available so we were very lucky. By 6, they were all taken. But even in the main room everyone could see the ocean. Valet parking (which is a must unless you walk a distance) was only $4!! all of the staff, including valet, were exceptionally attentive and friendly.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSeaside Dining at it's FinestThis restaurant has been a true gem for years and though it has been around a very long time it is freshly decorated and updated to create a relaxing open atmosphere with a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean from every table. The food is fresh and prepared to perfection, with a wine list that is superb as is the service provided by the wait and matre-de staff. So glad this establishment has remained with the Chart House family.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful food, drinks andWonderful food, drinks and atmosphere.

Absolutely wonderful service, prompt and courteous! The meal was marvelous ..had the macadamia crusted mahi mahi... to die for!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMChart House - Fantastic ExperienceAs always, our recent visit to the Chart House was perfect. We were there on Mother's Day, which must be one of their busiest days of the year. Even so, the service and food flawlessly met the restaurant's high standards. By no means did we feel rushed at any time. And the parking attendant's presenting my wife a fresh carnation when he brought our car around was a nice touch. We look forward to our next dining experience at the Chart House.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOvercome by Mother's DayTaking all things into consideration being Mother's Day, our overall dining experience was very good. The restaurant was packed but our reservation was honored. Our only concern was being a party of two on Mother's Day, we were somewhat lost in the shuffle. Our small table was overlooked by the waiter assigned. We found out later that he was new to the restaurant and was still in the "learning mode". Other than the delay in being served, the food was great, the view wonderful and the staff was very courteous. WE enjoyed our dinner and do plan to return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMTasteful escape by the SeaThe Chart House, in Cardiff by the Sea, is a delightful experience. We seem to think of the Chart House mostly for special occasions because it just feels like a special place, but it shouldn't be restricted to just those times. Our most recent visit was Mothers Day, the first or second busiest day of the year for restaurants. From valet parking to the entire restaurant staff, we never felt rushed, the food was prepared exactly as ordered and the service was perfection.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMom's Special DayWe've taken our mother to the Chart House each year for the past 10-years to celebrate Mother's Day. We were seated at a table with a direct view of the ocean. It was a beautiful day capped with a show by several Dolphin playing in the waves. Our Mom loved it.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMChart House LunchWe were celebrating Mothers Day a day early, Saturday May 11th, for my mother and the Chart House. I t was a good choice. The view is absolutely amazing, on the ocean of Cardiff by the Sea. It was a warm clear day, the beach was calm and the view was amazing. I enjoyed my salad, I had a Chopped Salad and ordered steamed veggies. My son wasn't impressed with the Fish Tacos too much. My mother loved the Lobster Grilled Cheese sandwich. My daughter must have liked the Coconut Crunchy Shrimp, she didn't complain and ate the all the them. Our other two guests ordered the Clam Chowder. Both commented that it was one of the best chowders they had eaten in a long time. Our waiter was attentive, friendly and she did a fantastic job.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was exceptionalThe service was exceptional and the appetizers, salad and the lobster bisque was outstanding. Right on the beach, what more can you ask for??5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMStunning sunsetThe food was great but the sunset was amazing made my reservation for 30 min prior to sunset and was able to get a window seat when we arrived. A few min before sunset the staff opened all the blinds to give an unobstructed view of the sun sinking into the ocean.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur favorite Chart HouseWe have been going to the Cardiff Chart House for 35 years and it is still one of our favorite places to eat.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful foodThe Food was Great the view is excellent was an wonderful time.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA fabulous view and outstandingA fabulous view and outstanding food and service.

Awesome food!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMnever dissapointsGreat service, great meal, great dining experience.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything exceptional asEverything exceptional as usual. I tried the lobster grilled cheese sandwich. Very good but it was served with lobster bisque dip. Way to rich for my taste. The sandwich was yummy without the "dip".4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDespite all of our coastlineDespite all of our coastline in San Diego County, this is one of the rare places right on the edge of the beach with a beautiful unobstructed view of the ocean. I thought it would be jam packed with a lunch crowd but there were plenty of seats available - this gem should really be packed but, must admit, I and my group were happy it wasn't!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe use the Charthouse in CardiffWe use the Charthouse in Cardiff with family and friends on a regular basis and the food and service are usually excellent. However, on Tuesday, 29 April my wife and I invited friends to join us for lunch the food was excellent but the service can only be described as a disaster. The food took a very long time to arrive to the extent that the waiter apologized several times. The final blow was that a special desert we ordered at the time of giving our lunch order failed to materialize. When I questioned the waiter he said that he had forgotten to give the Chef the order.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWhy would this restaurantWhy would this restaurant have a whole section of empty tables and make us wait when we had a reservation. Not impressed at all. Food was excellent but the service was terrible. And no one ever sat at any of these empty tables during the entire evening. And any folks arriving with no reservation were told it was a 45 to one hour wait. Many turned around and left yet there were all those empty tables.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWould go againWe thoroughly enjoyed the food and ocean view. Our server was also very pleasant and helpful.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionHave enjoyed the Chart House for many years. Can't go wrong for those special occasions.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI picked this restaurant becauseI picked this restaurant because I had previously dined at the Chart House in Redondo Beach. That experience was great and this one in Cardiff was equally great. My friend enjoyed her belated celebration. I was lucky enough to obtain the sea view which just added to the ambiance. Thank you for an enjoyable moment.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. VeryGreat food and service. Very attentive waiter and staff made our dining experience memorable.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA Romantic GemOne of the nicest restaurants in all of San Diego - right on the ocean, with light beacons mounted on the roof pointed at the ocean waves which glimmer right outside the rear window at night. Service and food is excellent.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExemplary Service and Yummy Meal!Peter was a personable and gracious server, offering menu recommendations and checking back to insure that my meal was prepared to my expectations. The service was prompt and unimposing, making for a very pleasant and scrumptious dining experience. I hope to return on my next visit to Southern California!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can't ask for a betterYou can't ask for a better restaurant with consistently delicious food, a beautiful view, and excellent servers.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience for a holidayGreat experience for a holiday afternoon. Amanda, our server, was upbeat, helpful and efficient. I thank her and the rest of the staff for being there for us on Easter.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThey didn't really have aThey didn't really have a brunch menu just their luncheon/dinner menu but we were fine on that. Fortunately we were early enough to get a window table and enjoy the view.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
