Diner Reviews
  • "cool, just great service good food delicious, location is excellent .drinks are superb and desert are delicious ,,"

  • "The 4th of July at Chart House was an amazing experience. The fireworks were right over the water with a clear view from the warmth of our table which eating yummy food!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "We were here on the 4th of July and they were both overcrowded and understaffed (one bartender, really?) So dinner took about three hours. The good news: the food (once it arrived) was quite good and our waiter was terrific despite everything (at one point I spied a guy in a chef's coat bussing tables, to give you an idea). The food was also pretty good. But the best part was the view -- we were fortunate enough to have a table with a spectacular view of the fireworks once 9pm rolled around -- at which point, all was forgiven and magic ensued. We will go back, just not on the busiest night of the year, and will take the waterbus to the dock in front of the restaurant."

  • "Don't get me wrong, the food is not bad. It's just that for the price, it's pretty mediocre... like a line cook is in charge of the kitchen. It's a chain restaurant, and if that's what your expectations are, you'll be fine. I had the macadamia crusted fish (halibut, I think?), and it tasted fine, though it was soggy. The green beans it came with were tasty. My wife said her scallops were good, just not great. The view was great, and since we wanted to see the fireworks, it worked out really well. Staff all around was very friendly, and our waiter was very attentive."

  • "We went to dinner here on a whim because the Charthouse in Malibu was closed. It was an awesome choice!! The wait, valet, and welcoming staff were wonderful. There were NO kids so it was a very adult atmosphere. Quiet talking and great food!! We really enjoyed it. And the TAG for valet was wicked!! Great technological upgrade."

  • "The view is spectacular from every table. Service is wonderful, very well spaced on food delivery. I would definitely go back!"

  • "Food was fantastic, as usual. Upon notifying the manager that we had been waiting an unusual length of time for our entrees, she checked on the problem and comped us some of our appetizers. Things happen where humans are working. This is still my go-to place for a nice evening out."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "1. THEY HAVE VALET SERVICE AND CHARGE $4.00 (WITH THE AMOUNT IS SMALL LETTERS ON SIGN)> 2. THERE IS NO OTHER PLACE TO PARK OTHER THAN IN THEIR LOT! CAPTURED AUDIENCE! 3. FOOD IS JUST MEDIOCORE 4. LITTLE FOOD FOR A LOT OF MONEY 5. DRINKS ARE OVERPRICED 6. I HAD A RESERVATION AND YET HAD TO SQUABBLE WITH THE SEATING PERSON TO SIT AT A WINDOW SEAT. UNBELIEVABLE."

  • "We were five adults having dinner for Father's Day. The service was slow, although the staff was friendly and the view of the Marina is nice. We ordered two appetizers; the first came after a long wait, and the second never came. The food was inconsistent, and expensive. The prime rib which is one of their specialties was very salty. All of the fish dishes were excellent, but expensive and did not come with much on the plate other than the fish. The salad bar was OK, not great, and the staff had a hard time keeping many of the selections replenished. I'd recommend it for the fish, a nice glass of wine, and the atmosphere, avoid everything else."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Every time we come to this restaurant, which is frequently, we get treated like we are under par people by the personnel in the bar. I got an attitude from the bartender because no server came to take our drink order, so I went to the bartender and then after she took our order, they didn't have pineapple juice for my drink. We waited 20 minutes for our drinks. The host, Spencer, was adorable and witty. Our waitress, Katie, was great. Please do something about the service in your bar. It sucks."

  • "Not the Chart house ive eaten at dozens of times before, fish over cooked, Ive never had to look around for the server so much, waiting 20 mins for a drink, Only thing i ask when booking a table is away from big groups and the kitchen, so of course i was seated next to a table of 20 people and next to the kitchen"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We usually LOVE the CHARTHOUSE as a go to restaurant with a nice view of the Marina...Last night changed our opinions though..The wait of an hour and a half was wayyyyyyyyy beyond comprehension.....Just ridiculous!!! The management here needs an OVERHAUL and sonehow should have compensated us for the inconvience!!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Very nice setting. Windows face out to the marina and boats. The service was top notch. The food is always consistently good. A little disappointed in portion size on the halibut. It is the most expensive piece of fish on their menu but a total rip off. The salmon on the other hand is a substantial generous excellent piece of fish. My suggestion, do NOT order the Halibut. It's a complete waste of money. The restaurant should be ashamed of themselves. The appetizers are excellent. The salad bar is amazing and the dinner choices are excellent. It is definitely a neighborhood gem."

  • "First time diner at Chart House. The food was generally good but portions were small for the price. Service was pretty good. Atmosphere was OK with a nice view of boats in the marina. Overall, I consider this place to be overpriced for a chain restaurant."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "It was mine and my girlfriends first time to the Chart House and it was wonderful. Our waitress, Diana, was very excellent to us even though she had a handful of other tables. We were celebrating my girlfriends birthday and Diana did everything possible to accommodate us. The food was amazing as well."

  • "Our experience begin with a phone call from the Mgr confirming our reservation and special touches. EXTREMELY helpful and professional! We and a very enjoyable evening. Service was excellent as well as the food! Keep it up! "

  • "My husband love sea food prepared by The Chart House."
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Always have very good dishes, and high quality food and drink. Beautiful view in the Marina. The service is fair, could use a little more help. The prices are very reasonable for the quality of food and drink, but the menu could offer a little more in the way of meat dishes for the non seafood eaters."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "Started with the Jumbo Lump Crab Cake and a Caesar Salad-crab cake had LOTS of crab, good dressing on salad. Stuffed Tilapia was GREAT! My dining partner had the Mixed Seafood Grill, and LOVED IT! could not finish the Hot Chocolate Lava Cake...too full.Our server know the food menu but was lacking on what Tequilas the bar poured. Had a very enjoyable evening."
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "Good thing we had a reservation as the place was packed. We were seated within 10 minutes of our arrival. The waiter was nice and attentive to start with, however, he forgot our salad. Our entrees were fair. Veggies were a little wilted, rice was tough and the pasta was on the cold side. My fish was grilled OK. It seemed as though the food had sat a while before being delivered to our table. In fairness, it was super busy, but still...the view was the boats in the marina. Fortunately, we went before the fish die off. I don't think I'll return and I'm taking my wife out for another dinner to make up for the disappointment. Haven't found a CH to compete with the memories of the Santa Barbara CH on the beach. "

  • "You can tell coporate runs the kitchen. The food was of lower quality and lacked the Chart House feel."

  • "My friend had steak & I had the lobster...She indicated that her steak was very good while my lobster was small and overcooked. But the our server was very good."
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We dined early on a weekday, so it was pretty quiet. The service was very good, so I want to point that out as the staff was very nice and helpful. However, the food was a disaster. We had 2 appetizers, the crab/avocado/mango one (meh, the crab was very mayonnaise-y) and the tuna (kind of tasteless, though a lot of it). The grilled seabass was horrible. It was fishy, and a few hours later both of us were nauseated and had to take medication to settle our stomachs. Since food is the most important thing to us, we will never return. "

  • "The Charthouse is one of my favorite restaurants, esp. the one in Redondo Beach. However, we were unable to get reservations for the time frame we wanted and for the number of people in our party, but were able to make reservations at The Charthouse in Marina del Rey. It was Mother's Day and we got there earlier than our 5:30 reservations, hoping that we might get seated earlier or close to on time. We got seated about 5:45. The place was busy, and one would think that they would allow for extra staff but service was horrible. The moment we all sat down, everything was late; from drinks, to appetizers, entrees, drink refills, etc. Food was mediocre and the service was very poor. I would not recommend this Charthouse location. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I have been to the Chart House on a number of occasions. This time, like the others, I was thoroughly satisfied. The food was great, however, our server was a bit slow and nonresponsive. However, it was Mothers Day and the place was crowded so that might explain why our particular server was not as efficient as the other servers I observed. "

  • "Very pleasant staff and tasty food. Not much value due to smaller portions and above average prices. "

  • "I could not get a glass of wine in time to drink with dinner. Table was cleared and after 15 minutes we still had not been given a desert menu."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "We made a reservation for 4 people for 5:00 pm Sunday. The food was good. We were enjoying catching up with friends who live overseas and come to LA just once a year. I made a point of mentioning that fact when I made the reservation with OpenTable. We ordered an appetizer, main courses, and 2 desserts. Three separate times our server and hostess came to the table and asked if we needed anything else. Both of them were trying to get us to leave even though there was an empty table next to us against the view windows and empty tables nearby. We left at 8:15 feeling badly hassled. Our friend said they must want us out of there. We were respectful guests, not raising our voices or drinking (2 drinks between the 4 of us)."

  • "This was my first time dining at this Chart House Marina and it was a very enjoyable experience. The food was delicious and service was great. We always go to a Chart House restaurant for Easter, we were going to the one in Newport Beach but it since shut down so now Chart House in Marina will take its place. I hope to go again before then!"

  • "Had a reservation so there was no wait. Host and waitress took time to review menu and specials. A special desert was offered to my wife for her Birthday. This made her birthday special.I look forward to returning to try other items on the menu and maybe even brunch. I enjoyed the seafood selection."
