    I took my wife here for our anniversary and it was a real success. The waiter made great suggestions for both appetizers and wine. Both main courses were fantastic. The only questionable part was the selling of the frequent diner card after dinner. It kind of broke the spell and brought us back to dollars and cents,

    While touted to be a steak restaurant, the meat dishes were the standard fare; and the quality of the cuts was very average. Still, for a $30 meal, the flavor was below average. They didn't have enough of the new-for-fall side dish, so we settled for a run-of-the-mill vegetable side. The "sizzling mushrooms" were dry - all of the sizzle had cooked out. And there's just no justification for charging $17 for their salad bar. Very underwhelming.

    Excellent Salad Bar. Food was very good. Service was very good. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner experience. It is not worth the price charged, and if we had not had a discount, I would have felt overcharged at the full price. The attrction here is the view of Denver, and that was excellent.

    The ambiance was a plus. My girlfriend and I were here for the first time. We researched the menu before going. They have a happy hour, but it is ONLY for the lounge and bar. If you're dining, the happy hour menu doesn't apply to you. You pay full price while at the same time others seated just a few feet from you get up to half off their prices. This doesn't make sense at all. The service was excellent. Our waiter was very attentive to our requests, especially gluten free items. The food was forgettable. Not bad, just not exciting or very flavorful. I would not come back to the full dining menu unless someone else was paying or just eat at the bar or lounge. We spent $135 for two. It really wasn't worth it.

    With some attention to detail, The Chart House could be a very good place to eat. As is, it is mediocre at best. We had the shrimp cocktail which were beautifully presented in a glass bowl nestled in a silver bowl of ice. But, the shrimp were "mealy", not cold and crisp like properly cooked shrimp should be. The cocktail sauce had way to much horseradish and was nearly inedible. The spinach salad was finished at the table and was very good. The Teriyake 12 ounce sirloin was beautifully cooked, but the sides were a joke. A paper thin slice of pineapple and a handful of fingerling potato slices that the menu said were "roasted", but I suspect they were boiled. Not good. It wasn't great.

    So the waiter seemed more interested in selling more and more items than anything else. My girlfriend and I were getting a little frustrated with the sales tactics. Our meal was $120.00 and we sat in a corner booth. Not much scenery to look at. The $7.99 salad looked like it had been pre-made and sitting in a refrigerator. The $31.00 scallops tasted good, but I only got 4 of them on a tiny bed of mashed potatoes and some green beans. I was starving when I left. That's almost $8.00 a scallop!!!! Will never go back there again....

    I felt our waitress was very attentive. The restaurant experience was not very good. Salad bar not stocked. It took an extremely long time for our meal to come. Once received it looked like it had been sitting under the heating lamps for a while. I asked out waitress and she assured us that it had not. I had ordered grilled shrimp. It did not look or taste like it had been grilled and was extremely over cooked and dried out. I mentioned it to our waitress and she said she was going to check on it. We never received any kind of response. I have been to the Chart House many times before and have been very satisfied. With the amount we paid for our dinner I was very disappointed with this experience

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
