    We made a reservation on Open Table 15 min before and were honored our time and seated quickly. Unfortunately the ambiance in the restaurant is always LOUD and crowded! They were undergoing remodeling during our visit. I would hope they are making their entry/reception area bigger as there was, and in the past too, always people standing in the way, talking, milling about, waiting for a table with no place to sit or stand. They were so busy when we walked in that no one acknowledged me at the front desk. A simple nod or gesture or a quick glance saying "I'll be right with you, pardon me for the delay" would have been nice. So the reception area needs a lot of work in both space and protocol in the correct way to greet guests.

    I recently moved to the area and I was told by a friend that The Chart House would be a great place for a romantic dinner. My wife and I were going out for the first time after the birth of our child. I was excited to surprise her with a romantic evening however, I was floored when we walked in. I understand that in order for restaurants to improve there needs to be cosmetic changes, but guests should be made aware of this when they make a reservation. Instead of the window seat, which I requested, we were sat in a narrow area beside drywall. We attempted to wait for the window seat but we felt pressured by the hostess to take a different table. Although the setting was less then satisfactory, the food was outstanding.

    We arrived a bit late due to traffic but the staff didn't miss a bit. They welcomed us with kindness. We were celebrating a special occasion and they just made the night wonderful by taking photos, serving our food, congratulating us, etc. My boyfriend use to run several businesses so he is very picky when it comes to customer service he was very impressed with the service we had. The food was just awesome and the view was gorgeous. We barely even knew the place was in a remodeling state. I looked for a fine dining restaurant in the area before our vacation for hours making phone calls and sending emails. I am very very pleased we chose Chart House.

    My husband & I saved our hard earned $$$ to go to the well known chart house for our romantic anniversary dinner only to discover there was very little romance in a place under construction. When I made the reservation online it didn't mention the place was being remodeled at all. We feel if we are going to spend close to $200 for a meal we prefer the restaurant to be exceptional, not dry wall paint patches everywhere. Also, when we arrived we gave our name and were called "Bergin." I had to correct the hostess and then she had to change our menus to the preprinted anniversary ones they had ready for us. (That was a nice touch, once we got to the table & read the top of the menus).

    We went for wife's birthday. They put a special note at the top of the menu which was nice. The calamari app was good. I wasn't impressed with the smoked salmon eggs Benedict. Salad bar was ok, nothing extremely exciting. My wife had the shrimp fresca (I think that's what it was called) and she loved it. Nice people, great view.

    The Chart House never disappoints, with food or service. The only reason they didn't get an excellent rating is because the restaurant is under renovation, so the decor/atmosphere is less than normal. am excited to see the finished product, though, upon completion in November.

    Thank tog for making our anniversary dinner a special one. Our menus were printed with a personalized wish for us. The service was great. I had the pan seared scallops and my date had the snapper Hemingway. We also had the coconut shrimp for an appetizer and lovely bottle of Savignion Blanc. Thank you! This restaurant is under renovation but overall it did not affect org dining experience.

    The nite started out great - but 20 min in to us being seated - the lights went out and we were told to leave ! We spent gas money driving there and had to spend additional gas money to search for another nice place to celebrate our wedding anniversary - by the time we drove around looking for another place to go-the only place that were open were dives and small bars !The nite was horrible and our special nite was ruined !

This restaurant makes a special time a very special time. Service is always top notch and I love the salad bar! Only place I know of where you can put anchovies on your Caesar salad. Special!!

    Eating at The Chart is our favorite "go to" restaurant. They have exceptional valet service. The hostesses print your special occasion on the top of the menu, this was Mom's 83rd. The bar is currently under renovation along with the restaurant, thus the minus of 1 star. The bar maid was attentive as we awaited our seats and remaining guests. Our seat was comfortable, white table clothes as expected with quality serve wear. The food, exceptional. A couple of us ordered the Parm crusted Salmon with cream potatoes and a side of cream spinach. One ordered the Parm crusted Cod, another swordfish and Mom, a filet. All were exceptionally delicious. We are excited to see the new changes as they raise the roof.

    We have always loved the Chart House. The food and service is excellent. The view of the river breathtaking. What makes it especially nice is the dress code. You can dress up if you want but you can also come in shorts. Perfect for the Florida lifestyle. Dinner was a birthday celebration for my daughter of which I informed the Chart House beforehand. They recognized her day with a birthday wish in the menu and dessert with a candle. I highly recommend going to the Chart House if you have never gone before. In my opinion the best restaurant in town for years.

    POSITIVES: We were celebrating a bday & nicely surprised to see a personal greeting printed @ the tops of all of our menus. We were given them as keepsakes on our way out; rolled up & tied w/ ribbon - simply from mentioning in comments section of online reservation that we would be celebrating a bday. NEGATIVES: lipstick blotted from previous diner on the edge of tablecloth & an unkempt ladies room. A WELL ATTENDED LADIES ROOM IS AN IMPORTANT - & ALL TOO OFTEN OVERLOOKED - PART OF THE EXPERIENCE. 2 guests in our party were served steaks cooked opposite of how they were ordered. In compensation, our dessert was deducted from bill w/o having to ask.

    We have one at home and have been consistently underwhelmed but this Charthouse is beautiful with a fantastic setting on the water. good service and well prepared food. The ambiance is really the thing here--water views from almost every vantage point even if not seated at the window. The fact that you can be well taken care of and enjoy a nice meal...and I failed to mention I had to change the reservation 3 times because our group kept growing and still exceeded my reservation count by the time we arrived and they handily accommodated us.

    Really enjoyed dinner at the Chart House. The service was terrific and the food was very good. My husband had the prime rib and said it was as good as any he'd ever had at a restaurant. I had lobster bisque and the snapper. The bisque was very, very good, but really didn't have much lobster in it. The snapper was cooked perfectly. Overall, dinner was better than expected, and the view was magnificent. The only things I would change have more to do with how the restaurant is managed - like the waitresses pushing Landry's Select Club. Having a dinner reservation doesn't make any difference; you still have to wait on a table when you get there (this was on a Tuesday night). Also, the mandatory valet parking is just kind of weird.

    I do not live in Melbourne so when visiting I always go to the Chart House. The food and service is always top notch. We were celebrating my fathers birthday. It was a very nice afternoon, he had Eggs Benedict and I had some clam chowder and the shrimp and lobster rolls. Everything was great except the rolls. The were filled with way too much filler and hardly any shrimp or lobster. First time I was ever disappointed at the Chart House, just will not order that again. Otherwise it was a very nice brunch!

    I would only encourage the Chart House to work harder to make sure all the food comes out at once. Serving side dishes when the meal is 75% eaten is frustrating. Three of my last four visits have had serious service snafus.
