  • Birthday Prime Rib on the water
    Fitz
    Dined on 11/13/2014
    We usually walk up to the Coco Walk when we are docked at Dinner Key Marina, but after a week of seafood I thought I would surprise my husband with a prime rib dinner. We arrived early to enjoy the sunset. First time in years we have seen a salad bar at an upscale restaurant, and the offerings were fresh, although the top row was impossible for me to reach and a stretch even for my husband who is 5'10". He tried soup three ways and loved the gazpacho. His prime rib was excellent, and I enjoyed shrimp three ways. We shared the molten lava cake with a birthday candle. Our server Alan was very kind and attentive. We found the music selection tone not quite what we would prefer with a special dinner, better for a bar scene.

  • Lovely Setting on the Water
    LawrenceofSuburbiaVIP
    Dined on 11/8/2014
    I wanted to dine in Coconut Grove at a location that was walking distance from our hotel and also wanted a waterside table. The Chart House, part of an upscale chain fit that description. The setting is very lovely, the landscaping and design of this location are extremely well done. With a full moon rising over the bay, we had a lovely dining experience. The Parmesan crusted Snapper was the highlight - exceptionally well-prepared and the Grouper was very fresh and nicely done. We also shared a chopped salad that was also very good and not overdressed. The wine feature was nice and not terribly overpriced (as wines can often be).

    We enjoyed the scenic views of the marina on a beautiful morning. Unfortunately the food was not up to par. The brunch menu was very limited and the salad bar wasn't very appetizing. I was looking forward to a cappuccino and all they had to offer was american coffee. Service was great.

    Great for a romantic date or small group dining. Restaurant located right by the ocean however next to a boat yard. Had decent view of the city and lots of boats. Waitress wasn't the best. Mixed up drink order and wrong tab. Food was a little over priced for amout. Had higher expectations.

    Our waiter was very nice and apologetic but it took over an hour to get our food (some kind of problem in the kitchen-we never got a more detailed explanation) and when it came it was not very good. The filet mignon ordered medium was very overcooked & dry. The vegetable orzo was overcooked and sticky. Although the outside terrace has a nice view the poor food and service isn't worth the trip. The couple next to us walked out.

    We've been eating there for years and always enjoyed it. But the past two times we've been there, the service has been terrible. The food is still very good as well as the ambiance. I hate to complain but our waiter didn't seem to care what we wanted and he blamed it on the kitchen. I hate not coming back but I think we'll be going elsewhere.

    We picked Chart House from a list on the Internet called "Restaurants in Miami" to celebrate my friend's birthday! Great choice to make him feel special! It was a nice atmospher, not crowded and excellent food! I'll definitely eat at a Chart House again in the future. We were all from out of stae on vacation and not knowing the area we lucked out on an awesome restaurant with a fantastic view of the harbor and feel for Miami.

    Got seated right away @ 6:30! Weren't many people at that time. Salad bar was expensive and salad needed to be changed out. Grouper tasted amazing but was small for the price you were paying. The melting cake took along time to be served even though were told the server we wanted when we ordered the main course.

    Recently we celebrated my mom's 80th birthday at this neighborhood gem and we has a ball! The hostess was very attentive in noticing that our group had grown in size and made immediate arrangements to accommodate us. Our waiter was spot on, he delivered each course with accuracy and punctuality! He was extremely polite and attentive as well. He constantly checked our table for additional requests and never had to be asked twice for anything! The scenic views were spectacular. The Chart House made this a most memorable occasion for all of us!!! Upon leaving the restaurant the south Florida rains were upon us and we were accommodated one last time, by the valet who accompanied each of our guest to their cars under his golf sized umbrella.

    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.

    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!!

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!

    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.
