    I have been dinning at the Chart House for 30 years and never have i had to wait 1 hour to be seated! I was embarrassed and disappointed. Had to wait 1 hour passed reservation time! Appetizer we wanted was gone by the 8:30+ seating time.

    The Chart House has been around for many years and there are a plethora of reasons why. Start with the location: easy to get to and a great view. Next the ambiance: very welcoming and comfortable with friendly staff and that great view. Next the food: great selection, prepared very well, taste treats. It is just a pleasure to dine there and to explore the result: the customers are friendly. Try it!

    This restaurant is in the perfect location! It feels like you are far from the city but is so convenient to get to. The views of they city were amazing! I'd love to go during the sunset! The decor is contemporary modern and I loved the funky chandeliers and the odd size booths; it has so much character. There is a beautiful terrace that would be great for summer! The staff was so nice and they take such pride in their food and preparation. Everything me and my boyfriend had was delicious. The wine list was great too with lots of variety and bottles. It is the perfect place for a date night or out with friends. It's not too romantic or fancy; just the right amount of comfort for dining in style. I would highly recommend this restaurant

    The view is a little bit of the city in the distance, the highway, and a grassy hill - not impressive. The demographic when we were there made us feel like we were eating at a retirement home - or some sort of club where older people wanted to eat predictable food and pay too much for it. Overall, for the very expensive prices, the menu was far from creative, the flavors were mediocre, and the food was not fresh by any means. We made the mistake of paying for the salad bar and the fruits tasted like chlorine. On the positive side - the service was wonderful. When I am going to drop that kind of money on a meal again, I will definitely be going somewhere else where there is more care put into the food and an actual dining experience.

  • Terrible Food
    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    After experiencing the Chart House at other locations around the country, we were excited to go to the one in Golden. We were very disappointed. The food was terrible and the service was almost as bad. The Caesar salad was inedible, the lettuce wilted and drenched with dressing. Our fish entrees were overcooked and had a puddle of disgusting oil underneath. The vegetable sides looked and tasted like they were cooked days ago. The server kept on asking us if we were done with our appetizer when it was obvious we were still eating it. We had to ask numerous times for drink refills. Never again.

    Our experience at the Chart House was not good. The wait staff couldn't remember anything, and he gave us the hard sales pitch on becoming a member of the chain club. The food was of less quality than that of Chili's which isn't saying much. The shrimp seemed like it came out of a box.

    Noted my wife cannot eat bell peppers at the online reservation, then discussed with the waiter when taking our order. My wife's lettuce wraps did not have any bell peppers whereas mine did. However, the entree did have a citrus chili sauce on the side. It had bell pepper oil which we were not told about. However, my wife does not care for chili sauce so she did not have any. The tables were quite crowded together. The neighboring table had to shift to allow us to get out when leaving.

    Very disappointed with quality of food The food was definitely defined by the restaurant being a chain. In this day and age of nutrition, I think the restaurant is lacking in their menu for grilled meats or fish. I would think that healthy choices would be preferable. Fried foods are definitely for fast food restaurants,

    We went to the Chart House for Restaurant Week and had a very poor experience. The crust on my coconut shrimp was so tough, I could hardly chew through it. The potatoes server with my husband's short ribs were bland. The service was extremely slow even though the restaurant wasn't full. The chocolate lava cake was cold when it arrived.

    We arrived 15 mins early and were asked to have a seat in the bar. No problem. It took 15 mins to get two simple drinks. Then we had to wait an additional 15 mins for our table. Despite having a reservation and calling to confirm that reservation earlier in the day, we were sat (15 min late remember), at the worst high traffic table possible. When I noted my concerns, we were offered a different table, but in one of the back rooms where there is no view. The view is the whole point of going to Chart House. The back rooms are for walk-ins, not reservations. The server was kind, but clearly paid more attention to others throughout our meal. It took at least 10 mins after ea course to clear the table; another 5 to deliver new food. Bland food.

    In short--splendid view, fine ambience, indifferent food, disappointing service. Our reservation was for 7 p.m.; we had to wait until 7:35 p.m. for our table. We were completely ignored by the front-desk hosts while we sat and waited for the table--no updates, apologies, or even sympathetic glances. Once we were seated, the menu looked quite promising, but food preparation was quite bad--overfried shrimp, a poor chicken dish, uninteresting presentation. Only high point was superb New England Clam Chowder--recommended. The lull between our desert order and its eventual delivery was painfully long, as was the delay in collecting our meal payments. Chart House's admittedly scenic setting is insufficient to motivate us to return there.

    The area that we were seated was extremely crowded. My seat was bumped every time someone went by, very annoying. The food was fine, just late with appetizers. Server was fine. The salad extremely over-priced for the minimal selection. The beer glasses need to be chilled. The wine selection (made by the waiter) was very good. In closing, in the past when I have brought large parties into your establishment, we have been very pleased; however this time, in a small setting with just four, it was very uncomfortable. The table selection was totally inadequate.

    I was very disappointed in that I ordered a Filet and was told that they did not have any. This was at 6:00 pm! I then ordered a rib eye medium and was served a piece of prime rib that was overcooked. The waiter did his best to remedy the situation and said that the manager would buy me a dessert. This is not what I expected! I expected that the item be deducted from the bill at the least. I will continue to go to this restaurant and I may call ahead to see if filet's are on the menu that I night!

    Our dinner experience was not good. We had poor service and the Caesar salad was terrible (extremely salty with no flavor). The poor service was based on a waiter with little to no wine knowledge. He followed that with not serving any bread, no refills on a soda and then no sugar for the after-dinner coffee. We would not recommend the restaurant; there are many in the Denver area in the same cost range with better service and meals. We drove 90 miles round trip for a disappointing dinner.

    This was my first visit to Chart House and we loved it. Only a short drive from Denver. I made the reservation on-line and we were seated immediately upon arrival. The reservation timing was based on the 6:15 pm full moon rise. We were seated at an absolutely perfect widow table for viewing. Great view, friendly server and manager. We never felt rushed, and the food was terrific. We also watched an owl or hawk throughout the meal. I don't know how our experience could have been any better.

    We were very impressed. My wife and I had dinner on a Friday night and were seated in the back part of the dining area. At first we thought we'd miss the view those near the front windows had, but soon realized it was perfect for a quiet, intimate dinner. The front area had larger tables/groups and seemed a bit more casual. The food was cooked and presented to perfection and the service was exceptional; and the waiter was there when appropriate. I know everyone's expectation of service and quality of food for the price is different but compared to other comparably priced upscale restaurants we've been to recently the Chart House definitely tops our list.
