    We waited over 1 hour for our meal to arrive. People were complaining about not receiving their orders. When we asked to take the balance of our meal home, we were told theyy ran out of bags. Also, we had to wait at the bar for our drink order because they did not have any clean glasses. Our waiter tried his best to calm the table, but it will be a long time before we would return...and we used to go there a lot.

    Food was excellent but service and ambience was just ok. The restaurant itself looks a little dated and it had a country club type feel rather than a high end restaurant. You would expect more for the price your paying.

    Plainly said, they were out of the first two things I ordered. This is on a Friday night, from the regular menu. Then my steak came out over charred and I ordered it medium rare, plus I asked for mashed potatoes and got wild rice. At least the lobster bisque was still phenomenal, albeit 20 minutes after I ordered it. This was a classic place to eat in Miami. Ocean side. Great food. Great service. The only thing left, is it's still scenic. I hate to say it, but the other reviews were right. Sad to say this was my final dining experience here.

    My mother wanted to go for her 91st birthday (which they didn't acknowledge). I MUST REMEMBER NEVER TO GO AGAIN! The place is 80% empty and they made us wait. The waiter appeared frazzled and the service was horrible. I can't imagine what they do if it's busy. Food is overpriced and only poor to fair. WORST: I have gone to many fine Miami restaurants during Miami Spice and enjoyed wonderful full size meals. Chart House should be ashamed: the gazpacho came in a 2" diameter cup ("lunch portion" they said, although we were there for dinner). My snapper was overcooked. The chocolate molten lava dessert was half size (I've had it before for $10.99) and dried up. In all, it was a terrible experience AND I MUST REMEMBER NEVER TO RETURN.

    My husband and I were out to celebrate his birthday. There was a bottle of champagne at the table that had been sent by a friend for the occasion. The restaurant picked up on that and our menus read THE CHART HOUSE WISHES ROLANDO A HAPPY BIRTHDAY! It added to the specialness of the evening! My snapper and my husband's steak were perfect! The fried calamari was the best- sweet and tender with a yummy dipping sauce. We sat outside where the breeze and the water view sealed our lovely evening!!

    We made a reservation online for Happy Hour and reserved a table with a great view. When we arrived at the restaurant, they did not have our request for a view. Despite our casual attire and two young children, they sat us in the dining room without telling us that Happy Hour did not apply in that room. Eventually we had to move to a different part of the restaurant to enjoy Happy Hour (great appetizer deals). Request to sit on the patio outside!

    I hadn't been to Chart House for several years and unfortunately I will not be back. I wanted to take my family for the great food and atmosphere. Unfortunately, the food was mediocre but the prices are still the same. There was no ambiance but the view is still amazing. The service was good. I will not be back.

    We made a reservation on Saturday night at 10pm. We arrive and we had to wait for them to clean a table for us. The waiters were lost, all over the place and they seemed to be new. We ordered a double JW and a cocktail. My wife had the prix menu from the miami spice. I had an appetizer and ordered the "dynamite grouper" my plate looked like it was prepared by a 12 year old. Greasy and small. The lava cake was cold and had no lava at all. When the check came in it was the biggest surprise. 175$ with a prix menu. Next time I will be better of burning my money.

    It's been a long time and now I remember why. Poor service from maitre d', waiter, bartender and even manager. The food took so long the manager offered to pay for the appetizers. Instead, we asked to just bring them out. They could have easily offered us the salad bar to fill the time and tummies while we waited. Recommend that you find a different spot.

    The bar area (lounge) had a musty smell and service was slow (happy hour red wine was of poor quality). Also decor in bar area needs updating. In the restaurant area, the food/service was good. It was my wife's birthday so the waiter had menu's celebrating her birthday. Also the desert with candle was a nice touch. Valet service was also good. The gentleman who parked our car was friendly and helpful (it was raining so he gave my wife an umbrella to use).

    I had not been to the Chart House here in about 15 years. It started out good but went downhill and I avoided it for a long time. I thought I would give it another shot. It was pretty good. We went early, 6:30 PM on a Saturday, and it was uncrowded and quiet. Appetizers and desserts were great. I had a shrimp dish that was quite tasty. The shrimp, however, could have been larger, a bit disappointing there. Our server was pleasant and knowledgeable and food came out at a good pace. I would go back again before strongly endorsing. It's worth trying again.

    The choices of appetizers and specialty deep sea fish is terrific and you can even choose the salad bar with a main entree as a change up. Good selection of wine and variety of unique cocktails. Coupled with the unmatched geographical view, the dining experience is can be be charted from bow to stern and port to starboard at competitive pricing. Mud Cake is a treat and Lava Cake the bomb.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013

    We attended the restaurant for Father's Day. The location was excellent. The food, however, was costly and not entirely satisfactory. Our group of 4 had two persons eating only the salad bar and the other two ordered entrees. The salad bar had not only a number of bowls empty but had really very poor selection of salad items. We had to ask to add food in the empty bowls which was slow and one at a time (our group had a 2pm reservation). The entrees were served closed to 3pm (the two of us eating salad bars had long finished and had to wait for the entrees to arrive for the other two.) The salad bar area was messy. It was difficult to serve the items. All in all, a costly meal but not above fair in our opinion.
