    We have never been disappointed here. The service at this Chart House is friendly and excellent, beginning with the valet, the receptionists and waiters. We started with delicious duck egg roll appetizers, then salads (standard). One dinner was an ahi tuna meal, the other a filet mignon with added baked potato (very tasty) and mushrooms. Fish and steak top quality and prepared just right. Received a complementary dessert because this was a birthday celebration. Oh, that cheese cake was delicious!

    My wife and I came here on a double date occasion (first time kids slept at grandparents and birthday) this past weekend. It was a wonderful experience the view was great, the food was excellent, the waiter was there almost as much as we had wished. I had the Ahi tuna and it was perfectly seared but best of all the vegetables were steamed just right and were not drenched in butter. We would go back for sure!!!!

    We can not go very often usually about once a year as for 3 of us all getting salad bars, a soup, and 1 side dish of vegies, cost $125 with tax and tip. Then another $5.00 for parking. Seems rather steep for Salad bar. Restaurant was empty so it was very quiet.

    At the last minute we decided to have dinner out for our anniversary. When I booked our reservatîon I wrote that it was our anniversary. Our menus arrived with a note at the top of the list "Happy Anniversary". The sea bass with Gorgonzola risotto and cranberry relish was excellent as was the filet mignon. Desert was a complimentary piece of mud pie. A great relaxing evening as we sat at our window table looking out at the boats. Our server Lena was very attentive to us and had a very pleasant way about her. We will go back for Christmas and request Lena.

  • SHAME on Chart House
    ChartHouseShame
    Dined on 10/19/2014
    Shame on the CHART HOUSE!! The manager, Rhea Mistakidis, at the Chart House restaurant REFUSED to honor my $50 gift certificate, even after I had asked the hostess when I sat down if they would AND prior to ordering asked the waitress if they would honor it. Therefore, my experience was NOT good and I would not return for such SHODDY treatment. I am sure had I been of another nationality, there would have been NO question or hesitation honoring the gift certificate. My brother purchased this gift certificate for me and I will also inform him that the CHART HOUSE essentially just took his $50 for nothing. I will be contacting the California State Attorney General's Office regarding this matter. Shame on CHART HOUSE!!!

    Chart House Restaurant is more than amazing. As soon as we entered we were greeted with a smile by a very pleasant young man. We were seated by a large window with a beautiful view of the marina. The ambiance of the restaurant is romantic and elegant. What made our experience memorable, was the amazing service we received. As far as the food is concerned, it was better than what we had expected. One of the best dining experiences my family and I have had in California!

    My husband and I have the same birthday. With a toddler and a baby on the way, we've had NO time to spend together. So when our special days came up, we decided to go to Chart House. What a memorable birthday! Everyone from the valet guy to hostess to manager to waiter were awesome. We had a beautiful view, GREAT food, yummy desserts and chatted for over 2.5 hours. I seriously can't wait to go back here. Recommendations: herb crusted salmon, salad bar, mud pie and chocolate lava cake. Yum!

    My family enjoyed dinner at Chart House, as the Chopped and Caesar salads were very good and the fillet mignon was excellent. The waitress was most attentive and allowed us to substitute potatoes so that was appreciated. The marina view is outstanding, making Chart House one of our favorite restaurants in Marina del Rey.

    Dinner at Chart House was most enjoyable as the food and service were both very good and the marina view is awesome. My family enjoyed the calamari appetizer, salad bar, and salmon entree. The prime rib was a bit fatty/greasy, but tasty nevertheless. The chocolate mud pie dessert was the highlight of dinner, and should be shared due to its size. We have dined at Chart House numerous times and was not disappointed. We shall return in the near future.

    This restaurant obviously have a staffing issue. Service is substandard, left 4 set on table for 2, never completely cleaned-up the table between courses, brought the main courses when appetizers were still on the table. This is not the first time we noticed this, but this time was worse. What did not help is that the food quality of the food was very average, not to say mediocre This restaurant needs a new management.

    Out of 5 of us 2 enjoyed the taste but the quantity was lacking. $31.00 for 4 scallops is a crime. I had the salmon and the first bite, i thought it was spoiled. A terrible mustard sauce (not to my liking at all). Another was a steak that was not as good as I could cook at home and a salad with lobster that was way more lettuce than anything else. It had been years since I had been to this location and this might have been why. Sadly not going back. HOWEVER the service was very good and that could be because there was only 4 table taken at the time.

    The Chart House Marina Del Ray is one of our favorite restaurants in Southern California - worth the 45 minute drive even though there is a different Chart House much closer to our home - consistently get great food and great service - best Herb Steamed Artichoke and Gazpacho - and the Prime Rib is always great!

    My wife loves going the CH. This was our first visit the Marina Del Rey location. We were celebrating my wife's birthday with her last meal before she undergoes her second radiation treatment for cancer. The flavors of the food were NOT up to par with CH standards. It was very disappointing. We loved the asparagus, but at this location, it seemed watered down and bland. The mashed potatoes have been substituted with bland flavors too - they used to be garlic mashed potatoes, but aren't anymore. The server took 12 minutes to approach our table. We were ignored until we noticeably were looking for assistance. The manager had to find server to come to our table.

    Went to the Chart House two consecutive nights. Lena and Eddie, our waitress and waiter, were outstanding and offered great service. The menu offers a wide variety of choices, making it diverse enough to satisfy all tastes. Had two bottles of fine wine, served with perfection. My husband had the shrimp cocktail, while I had their unique pot stickers; we both had steak with blue cheese/butter. The Food was excellent! For dessert? Key lime pie -- BOTH nights due to its being unbelievably tasty without being overly sweet. Our plan is to return to the same area again, and we will seek out the Chart house, while sitting at our table overlooking the beautiful view of the harbor.

    I planned a 30th friendship anniversary here because my dining companion REALLY likes this place (I to kinda sorta like it also). The Shrimp,Brie,Bacon, and Artichoke melt was yummy as always, the Lobster Bisque and Clam Chowder was also very good. Our server was Rosko who made some spot on recommendations (except for a couple of foo-foo drinks)and served us well. The Stuffed Tilapia was moist and flavorful, the Wild Mushroom Merlot Medallions and Grilled Shrimp were tender and cooked properly.
