    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!!

    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.

    We made reservations to have dinner for our 36th wedding anniversary. Our table was ready when we arrived and had the best water view like we requested. Our waitress was very attentive and the food was great. We recommend the lobster bisque, delicious! This place is so romantic and quiet, make sure you request a table next to the water, you will love it.

    Our family and friends love the Chart House. My work friends and I often spent many a happy hour there, in pretty surroundings with beautiful views. The ambience is pleasant and allows for conversation. Our family loves the dinner menu, which includes a nice prix fixe option. It's our go-to place for out-of-town visitors.

    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).

    We knew the view would be amazing, after all, it is The Chart House, noted for scenic waterfront views. The Service was top notch and the food was delicious. The Chef delivered amazing flavors on each dish, beautifully prepared. A really memorable meal and would highly recommend this location in Miami, FL.

    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.

  • Scenic view but poor food service
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 6/15/2014
    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.

    Although I use to visit this restaurant frequently, I do not think I will be going back anytime soon. The service was horrible. It took them 45 minutes to bring an appetizer and shortly after the food. The appetizer lacked taste and so did the main entree. The cook was burning the food as there was a strong scent of burning throughout the restaurant. Although waiter was very apologetic, it was a Fathers Day celebration that should have been compensated with drinks or dessert on the house.

  • A Hot Date with a Cold Meal
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/1/2014
    Celebrated my 10 year wedding anniversary and was greeted with a friendly host. We received specially prepared menus with our names on them announcing our 10th year wedding anniversary. The waitress was very nice and the service was good however, they were shorthanded in the kitchen (we were told that there wasn't a chef in the kitchen was the cause for the delay) as we had to wait longer than normal for our salad and meal. When our meal finally arrived with the assistance of the host, the food had to be returned because it wasn't hot, only the plates. Aside from that, we enjoyed our dining at the Chart House.

    I have been here a few times before while visiting my daughter at UM, The food is always good and consistent and you can almost always get a table. The service though can be disappointing and this last trip there was the worst it has been. I made reservations yet still had to wait 20 minutes for a table,, then I had to wait almost a half hour for my cocktail, Then I had almost finished my dinner before my wine arrived,, but the empty wine glass came 15 minutes before the carafe of wine, The restaurant was busy but not packed. Just not what you expect when the pricing is so high... Server barely spoke to us.
