  • "We have visited Charthouse many, many times and we are never disappointed. Great food, nice appetizers and the famous lava cake. All good! "
    Dined on 4/14/2014
  • "The food at the Charthouse - Marina Del Rey was good, and there were generous portions. However, the waitress on a Sunday at 6:45 p.m. was a little overwhelmed. She had all of 8 tables - half of them full of people. We had to wait for our appetizers and dinner a little to long in my opinion. Otherwise, it would have been a good experience. I had not been to the Chart House in years, and I would still go back. Just saying, the service is a very important part of the experience, and the one waitress seemed overwhelmed."

  • "Artichoke "Three ways" was a hit at our table for appy. Unique presentation. Lava cake was a hit for desert! Valet Parking."

  • "After having had a wonderful experience at the Chart House in Redondo Beach several years ago, I was looking forward to having dinner here. The view was beautiful, but the restaurant itself was very old and worn out looking. The salad bar was average at best and something that just did not seem worth ordering. My biggest complaint, however, was the menu which had many "old school" dishes. It definitely needs to be updated. Also, the staff seemed like they were having some sort of issue with seating, and made no effort to keep the problems from the patrons. It was strange to be sitting at dinner listening to the servers sounding frantic. All in all, not a good experience."

  • "I had a 7:00 pm reservation too which I arrived 15 minutes early. Didn't get seated until 40 minutes later; while other parties of 2 that arrived after us were seated before us. Then on top of that, once we were seated until the time we left, 2 hours had past. What should take at the most 1:30 hours took 3 hours!!!!!!!"

  • "Three or four times a year, four good friends meet at the Chart House for Sunday Brunch. We love the service, the location, the view and the food is pretty good too. It has friendly valet parking, and the noise level is low enough for a decent conversation with out straining to hear. We have been dining at the Chart House in the Marina for 5 years now and hope to continue to do so for a long time."

  • "Very good food & friendly service, nice location. Only negative is that the location is somewhat out dated."

  • "My wife had wanted to try this restaurant for a long time and as it was her birthday this past friday I thought it would be a nice occasion to try it. She had wanted to go to the one in malibu but that was fully booked but on reflection we are glad we came to Marina Del Rey. The whole experience was really good, the waiter was attentive withour being "hovering", the food was very tasty and portions were good. We didnt have a window table but the next row back was raised so we could still view over the marina and afterwards we went for a walk along the marina. A great experience !! Would certainly do it again for a special occasion."

  • "Once again we went back to the Chart House. Food an service are excellent. Eduardo was our waiter and did a great job. We will be back."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "We really enjoyed the improved menu and improved flavors of their regular menu items. Beautiful setting. Sweet and personal staff. Nice view of the boats. Not a loud restaurant, so you can hear each other. Just an overall great experience."
    Dined on 3/18/2014
  • "We were seated 45 minutes after our reservation and the waiter arrived at the table 10 minutes after that. This Chart House has a nice atmosphere, normally less busy than the Malibu location. The food was very good, but the service was unacceptable. Spoke to the regional manager and he acknowledged the problem. Apparently short on staff that evening and bad planning."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Restaurant was busy, service was fabulous, food excellent, hostess was excellent - could not ask for anything more!!"
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "It would be great to bring Chart House into the current time. While I was excited to go to an old favorite, it was clear that not much has changed. For the price - very disappointing creativity with sides - veggies, and rice (same recipe for too many years and looks like a cafeteria served it), mashed potatoes seemed a few days old (ordered baked but received mashed). Filet, while tender, was overdone. Overall presentation not impressive. On the positive side, the arugula salad was delicious."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Service was very, very slow. There was a new waiter in the bar area that took over 20 minutes to get drinks when the bar was not busy. There was a new bartender who made below average drinks that we had to send back. We were overcharged $30 for drinks. For one of my favorite restaurants, this was the absolute worst experience I've had there."
    Dined on 3/4/2014
  • "We frequently dine at this Chart House and always enjoy the food and ambiance. Valentine's night was a lovely experience because The Chart House offered their regular, fresh and delicious menu. It was a bit more busy than usual, but not uncomfortably rushed are crowded. The entire evening was so nice and we were happy to choose a place close to home."

  • "It was an ok experience.Food was ok but nothing special. My reservation was for a birthday & they didn't even offer any birthday cake or sundae."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I live in the neghborgood so visit here often and I must say this visit was not their best in the service area. The host staff was great but once we were seated there was lots of confusion on who our waiter was and two different staff came to take our orders. Two of our entrees were brought out cold and they didnt check to see how our food was until time for dessert so we just didnt eat it. Our check was bought to us but they never picked it back up, my friend actually walked around the restaurant and had to find the server to hand him the payment. Service is usually great here so maybe it was an off night but this visit was a little disappointing."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "Excellent place atmosphere and food was fantastic!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food is great, cooked to your liking. But when busy, they need someone to keep an eye open to ensure that the dinners aren't justing sitting there looking around. Or have more servicers working on days like Valentines Day."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Granted, it was Valentine's Day, so the place was packed. Long wait time for food were expected. Although from what we could tell, there was ample wait staff and bussers, so I'd say the delays and overall lack of attentiveness was on the extreme side. The steak was overcooked (asked for Medium Rare, came out Medium Well) and as a result was dry, and while I like my steaks basically unseasoned, this one needed something, cuz the taste just wasn't there. The sides (asparagus and the asian green beans) were ok, nothing spectacular. Everything came out mildly warm, as though it had been sitting on the hot plate for awhile. So anyways, all in all, a lackluster performance for a $250 meal. Appetizers were awesome though!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Booked this for a Valentine's dinner and it proved to be a nice find.Too late for a sunset, but the view was great and the food fulfilled our expectations.Similar to McCormick and Schmicks as far as menu choices.Good preparation. If i twerent so far away from home, we would return more often."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Excellent food, great service. What more needs to be said. We have been here several times and will continue to be regulars. Always a marvelous food experience."

  • "This place always delivers. It has been my favorite special occasion and romantic night out restaurant. I look forward to the dining experience every time. The service is outstanding and the food is exceptional. The views of the marina and the boats are idyllic, and so very romantic. It's a rare treasure to find, and will remain at the top of my list for many, many years to come."

  • "We sat for our 8 PM reservation, ordered, and our entree wasn't served on the table until 9:56 PM. Their excuse was the kitchen got swamped. It was valentines day. All the tables are reserved, how can they be caught 'unprepared'?"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The restraunt staff if very good at customer service. It's almost over kill but it's nice to be asked about the simple things. The salad plate was cold and the main dish plate was hot. Tat was also nice because my salad wasn't warm like it had been cooked The place always delivers a nice time for me"

  • "Our family always celebrate milestones at the Chart House Marina del Rey! From birthdays to our wedding anniversaries...We know that the Chart House will provide the ambiance and food which will make the occasion even MORE special! The presentation of the meal are absolutely breathe taking and taste equally as delish as they look! We simply LOVE the Chart House Marina del Rey!"

  • "I was looking for a quiet local restaurant with a variety of menu selections for the meat and fish lovers in the group. The Chart House met those needs and more. The appetizers were excellent, dinner was delicious, and the lava cake a perfect ending. The service was professional and friendly.We ended the evening at the small cozy bar to finish our wine. A good finish to a day at the Music Center and an evening in the Marina."

  • "Chart House was always a favorite when I lived in Southern California. Haven't been back in years. Still everything I thought it would be. View is Marina water view. Salad bar is the best you will ever have, includes hearts of Palm and caviar. Lobster entree was perfect. Sizzling mushrooms are always wonderful and the Mud Pie is to die for. Just great California cuisine in a queit romantic atmosphere. Loved every minute of it!"

  • "I reserved a table for my Partner's birthday and it was such a wonderful experience. They had a special birthday menu we got to keep and a lava cake for dessert. The onion soup was tasty and the Mixed Sea Food Grill was amazing. I highly recommend for the service and the food. This place is also great for special occasions. Parking is valet and the only suggestion i have is maybe offer the option in the restaurant to pay for the valet. The Valet is cash only."
    Dined on 1/29/2014
  • "I love Chart House. Great food and excellent service. They only do Valet parking which is $3.50. The beautiful part of the valet parking is tha they give you something to scan when you're done eating, and your car will be ready by the curb for you no need to wait."

  • "It's been a while since I've been to a Chart House - we were there for my son's birthday. From custom menu's, a delivered candle desert, and frankly excellent food - it was a great choice. The only downfall was the bar (a long time to get drinks - they were low on one of the Vodkas) - and our waiter - never quite around when you needed him. This really was minor in a nice evening."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "We were there on Friday night (1/17) the host was awesome, we were in the bar enjoying our drinks and he came to get us to make sure we were sitting at our window table in time for the sunset (it was beautiful). Additionally Johnathon our waiter was very attentive and friendly. Food was fantastic - keep it up!"
