  • Chart House Has Become a Disaster

    Went for Mother's Day brunch 2014. The place is filthy. The bartenders stick you with premium brands when you don't call them. The staff is overwhelmed. Management is disengaged and walks past ignoring obvious problems that could be addressed on the spot. The best thing on the buffer was heated tater tots. If they are going out of business for new development on the bay then they just need to close now and stop ripping people off. Please just close. I had good memories of The Chart House.

    Had been to Chart House before but this was my first brunch visit. We were a party of 5, celebrating Mother's Day...Chart House was the PERFECT choice. The food variety was impressive, the patio area had an amazing view, and the restaurant appeals to young and old alike. Whether you are looking to reserve a romantic dinner or a family affair w kids of all ages, Chart House can accommodate and wo T disappoint.

    Yes, we went to the Chart House on Mother's Day, however, our reservation was relatively early. The service was sub-par for the price of the meal. There was a buffet, but the food was cold and not flavorful. Everything about the experience was pretty bland--which is not what you expect for a $300 brunch. Unfortunately, I think the good ole days of the Chart House being a "hotspot" are gone. Don't think I'll be going back.

    For $150 on dinner, would have expected way more. Ordered an appetizer that never came. Asked for accommodations from the server on the entree and had a "nice" response: "either You get it as it comes, or dont get it at all"-- felt like it was a favor we were doing to be there, not paying $35 a plate. Seating outside would have helped, since that is their main attraction. Would maybe go back just for that. But other Than that, not trying it again- pricey menu with a cafeteria feel and service. Too many other good options around to try that again.

    First of all, COMPLIMENTARY valet if you're eating at Chart House, the architect of the restaurant was explicate...you walk in and get greeted by the hostess (expected) but the view isn't!!! The moment you walk in, large views right across of the beautiful bay by the marina. Quiet but not dead and they have a 2 meals for $65 special Sunday- Thurs. The ribs are the absolute BEST...and steak. the lava cake <----- at Chart House= TO DIE FOR. It is Chillis Molton on steroids. And it takes 30 minutes to make so they recommend to order it early and I think you should! We sat by the window instead of outside since it is Miami but they have fans outside if needed. I can't write more but anywho, pricy but SO WORTH IT! Two thumbs up!

    I docked for the night at Dinner Key Marina and wanted to enjoy fine dining. The Chart House in Fort Lauderdale is one of my favorites but the ratings of the Coconut Grove Chart House were mixed. Nonetheless, I could find nothing else in the area which met my needs, so I gave it a shot. It was fantastic. The maître d' greeted us warmly and give us very nice seating. The décor was attractive and the view of the bay outstanding. The server was pleasant and attentive; the food was prepared and cooked to perfection and delivered to our table promptly, although we were not rushed in any way. All in all, it was a first rate and memorable dining experience. I'll be sure to go there again the next time I visit the area.

    I have been going to the Chart House for several years and returned last week for a special birthday for my friend. I was very disappointed to see that the place seems to have declined quite a bit since my last visit a couple of years ago. The starter of fresh oysters took forever to come from the kitchen, the waiter did not even bother to ask what temperature we wanted our steaks at and they came out cold, and the salad bar which used to be a favorite of ours was filled with brown wilted vegetables. I am sad to see what used to be one of my favorites take a turn for the worse.

    I made reservations detailing a good view with my wifes birthday. As i walked in, not even a happy birthday greeting. . Also the view would've been great if only they would maintain the windows clean. I was sat in a corner table which the window provided a blurred view. The attention was never there. It took a while for us to be attended with. It looked understaffed possibly. The waitress even excused berself for not having a simple candle for the lava cake i had ordered at the end. I have been coming here for years and been seeing this place deteriorate slowly. Only reason i come here is because it has always been a favorite for my wife since the 80s.

    The service here is notoriously iffy....ranging from wonderfully professional to nice, but almost incompetent. The server makes all the difference at the Chart House because the food is pricey but typically good to very good - and occasionally excellent. Jessica was our server on this occasion and she was wonderful. Appetizers were very good. The stacked mango tuna thing and the east meets west are nice. There is a value dining option (not what it's actually called): soup or salad, choice of three entrees and a dessert for $30.00. Most of the entrees alone are ~$30, so this is a good deal. The views are always great. Overall, I was very satisfied with this visit. Hope to have similar experience next time.

    We did not have the best experience with our waitress. She was not energentic and kept forgetting to refill our drinks, ketchup for the kids even when we asked. We felt isolated and not important. Even though our food was delayed as well and we appreciate the manager apologizing. It would have been nice if our waitress would have kept us informed. Despite the poor experience. I understand that we all have bad days we still gave 20% tip. As a business owner we learn from all complaints.

    Terrible! Poorly managed and no management. It turned out to be the poorest run restaurant I've ever been too. When we came in the restaurant was almost void of people. We had reservation and said we would like to sit outside. The table was fine. After sitting for 10 minutes and looking at the few servers looking past us and going around us we ask for service. Our server apologized. I said. "we hungry and thirsty" and a nice way. We sat for another 15 minutes watching the few servers run around and we could see the other tables getting upset. To many bad things to say. Don't waste your time or money here. They need to shut down this restaurant and start over. Hope this review can help someone not to waste an evening out here.

    The food was decent but the restaurant is in need of a major renovation. The windows were dirty, the tables on the dock were so close to the fueling station for the boats that all you could smell was diesel fuel, and the service was beyond slow.

    Great views of Biscayne Bay from both outside and inside tables. Nice ambiance; food is good but a bit pricey. The 3 course combo is good value. Salad bar is poor. Service friendly but spotty. Server never returned large portion of left over my wife asked to be boxed. He promised to have chef cook an extra piece of fish...never happened. On a recent business dinner, server forgot to take both appetizer and dessert order from our client. Two appetizers were not available, 10 minutes after ordering entrees, server came back to tell us that 1 of the entrees was not available. In short, good, pricey food in a great location with spotty service.

    I haven't eaten at the chart house in 20 years and I really wanted to go back for my 32 birthday. I was worried that it wouldn't live up to my childhood memories of one amazing salad bar and yummy warm pumpernickel bread. My expectations were exceeded and I had an amazing time. Everything was perfect and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an exquisite dining experience. The crab, mango and avocado stack was worth the 30 minute drive and the short rib and mash were worth all the extra time I will need to spend in the gyn this week. All in all A++ Chart House. I look forward to finally trying the Sunday Brunch

    We really enjoyed dining at Chart House Miami. Alan our waiter was very amicable. The restaurant was hosting approximately 50 people on one side of the room and you couldn't hear the guest where we were sitting. The menu offers a very nice selection. One of the people in our party had the grouper they said it was very nice. The stuffed tilapia w/crab was fabulous and very fresh. The prime rib was cooked perfectly and was very flavorful. We will certainly be back and next time leave room for their specialty the lava cake. Very nice wine list selection. I loved being able to walk outside after our dinner and just relax looking out at the water and the marina. I look forward to hosting an event here very soon.

    The Chart House is a real gem not too far from the airport. The building is solid concrete balanced with warm wood accents. The indoor dining was expansive with accent lighting just at the tables to give an intimate experience. We wanted outdoor dining and the harbour view was very relaxing and enjoyable. The food and presentation was very good and for those who don't mind spending up to $60 per person including drinks and a bottle of wine, the menu was a good value (and good coffee). I can't speak for all the the servers but our server, Jessica, was warm and inviting with a great sense of humour. We noted the server at he table beside us was also very engaged with his customers and they obviously appreciated his service. We'd go back!

    ......service and food were not up to standard. Our waiter was Jason and he was average at best, immediately asked if we were ready to order, had to ask for bread a couple of times, did not even keep our water glasses full. Ordered a Caesar and Lobster bisque to begin. They brought the correct salad but brought me Clam Chowder instead. Returned it and they promptly brought me the bisque. Salad was good but the Lobster bisque contained too much Sherry making it just adequate. I ordered the Salman and my wife had the Coconut Shrimp. My Salman was excellent but my wife's shrimp was not all that great. Too much batter and not quite done making the batter somewhat chewy. Affected poorly what might otherwise be decent shrimp.
