- Chart House-Superb!BigMikeDined on 10/26/2014This is a mainstay for us when we visit Monterey Bay. It is always consistently good with food and usually the service is equal. A window seat adds further to the dining experience. Exotic light fixtures and rich, full wood ceilings throughout make The Chart House a lovely visual experience!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Celebrating 24 years of marriage!OpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/26/2014Love the Chart House! Beautiful view, great food, and awesome music! This is me and my wife's favorite! Always come here for our anniversary!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Amazing view!ManhattanVIPDined on 10/25/2014Such a beautiful spot to dine! A bit pricey for what you get but the view makes it worth it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great ExperienceMVBillDined on 10/25/2014We have been going to Chart Houses for thirty years. The one in Monterey is one of our favorites. It is great that it is still in business and still providing a solid dining experience. We were given a great table with a scenic view of the Monterey Bay. Even saw a few otters frolicking in the water. Great service and the food was very good. Price was very reasonable.Special Features:
- Wonderful experienceOpenTable Diner Since 2011Dined on 10/25/2014We do not get to the Chart house often. Only when we are visiting Monterey, so it's always special when we do dine there. The view, food and service was as always, the best.Special Features:
- Excellent Dining ExperienceluvgoodfoodDined on 10/21/2014great food but at a price. expect to spend some dollars if you go here. excellent food and the service was very attentive and never had to look for anyone to bring us things.Special Features:
- AwesomeOpenTable Diner Since 2013Dined on 10/20/2014Restaurant was fantastic. Food and service were very good. We celebrated 3 birthdays and will be going back in DecemberSpecial Features:
- Anniversary DinnerOldstersluv2dineDined on 10/19/2014We have been to the Chart House before, for our Anniversary dinner, so we were not new to this restaurant. We received our special menus with the Anniversary greeting at the top..always makes you feel extra special, that they took the time out to make and print out these special menus for your occasion. The food is always excellent, and we always get the window table, when we make our reservations in advance. Excellent service and wonderful food. We will be back!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- What a viewTheRegularDined on 10/19/2014We've been here on several occasions, but this time we lucked out with the best view in the house. Watched wild dolphin play while we ate - so wonderful! My elderly parents were thrilled. Thanks, CH.Special Features:
- Service was not what we expectedFoodEnthusiastDined on 10/18/2014We've been to Chart House before and had an outstanding experience from the food to the service to the ambiance. The food is delicious! The salad bar, clam chowder, seafood dishes and desserts are very tasty and well prepared. This visit wasn't as great as past ones solely because of our server. She either hovered or was nowhere to be found. We also brought wine from home and our server offered to decant them but she didn't pour for us. We were left to do that on our own which we felt was unacceptable for the caliber of this restaurant and price you pay here. We spoke to a manager and will definitely go back but it was unfortunate that this visit wasn't as great as previous ones just because of our server.Special Features:
- A bit over pricedOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/17/2014The price was a bit high for two. The priced didn't mstch the food quality or quantity.
- Poor EperienceOpenTable Diner Since 2007Dined on 10/17/2014Long wait. Food poorly cooked. Vegetables cold. Food tasted dry. Entree tasted like it sat under a heat lamp. Will never come back. Not worth the cost.Special Features:
- Excellent salad bar and dessertbirthdaytimeDined on 10/17/2014I was my husband's birthday. We enjoyed an excellent salad bar and complimentary dessert. We enjoy the atmosphere and the food is always top notch. Our waitress was a little slow this time around. She appeared to be pre-occupied and repeated herself when returning to our table. Overall it was a good experience.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great view and food from Monterey.BruceTexasVIPDined on 10/16/2014What an excellent selection of seafood. The salad bar is fantastic. I wish my wife could have enjoyed it with me.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- PerfectionCarmelDined on 10/12/2014Perfect service, delicious food, gorgeous Decor, and spectacular view. We went for our 44th wedding anniversary and we could not have picked a better place. We have never eaten there before, we will definitely eat there again. We both had a seafood dish. I couldn't decide what to get but Jordan, our waiter, helped me make a delicious decision...grilled white sea bass topped with lump crab. Amazing... My husbands crab stuffed shrimp was equally as delicious.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always a special occasionBeZeDined on 10/11/2014Love this restaurant for the ambiance, great menu, delicious and well-presented meals, very friendly and professional staff. For me, no visit to Monterey is complete without an evening at the Chart House.Special Features:
- Always goodChowHoundVIPDined on 10/7/2014The food is always good. Our server was attentive and friendly. There were three of us, we all had different seafood dishes and loved them all. Plus this Chart House still has the fabulous salad bar.
- Special Familia Dinner2deliciousDined on 10/4/2014The Chart House staffing is excellent. From the minute we were welcomed at the front desk and throughout the entire evening the staff demonstrated their high regard to providing excellent service. My family was there for dinner to celebrate my sister's birthday..The staff made this event perfect.. compliments also go to the chef! All our dinner selections where fresh and delicious! Seafood is the best I have had in any coastal resturant.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Classic romantic spotGumbi831Dined on 10/2/2014Went here for special occasion and was not dissapointed. A good old fashioned romantic spot to take that special someone and enjoy the view. Great menu selections and extensive wine list. Love the salad bar.Special Features:

- A nice suprisetraveltoeatVIPDined on 9/28/2014We booked this dinner late on a Monday night and found a full and energetic restaurant. The view of the bay was wonderful and the food a real surprise. This restaurant was not on the recommended list from the Concierge, so I am glad for the OpenTable recommendation in this case.Special Features:
- Great food, awesome servicednn21Dined on 9/27/2014The waiter we had was amazing! Very personable. Awesome food and drinks. My sister's bachelorette dinner was a huge success, they even personalized menus for us.Special Features:
- AmazingfeedmeDined on 9/27/2014We had such a wonderful night at the Chart House! The food was to die for and the staff was very accommodating. I will definitely be returning here on our next trip to Monterey!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Excellent atmospheretetchanDined on 9/27/2014Comfortable food and Fantastic location. Your staff has quite good courtesy. Thanks for the consideration.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Salad BarOceanGirlDined on 9/26/2014Overall, I appreciate all aspects of your restaurant, food and service. However, there were a couple of things I didn't like. One was that the door to the plate refrigerator was broken. Twice we've had the salad with our meals and twice the knobs on the door were not attached properly. Also, I had to wait to be noticed by your staff (not long, but still I had to wait) so I could request a small cup for my salad dressing since I don't usually put dressing directly on my salad. It is bothersome to wait and it would be nice to be able to grab one at will, since I am preparing my own salad. Other than those two things, everything else was lovely.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- TonyDined on 9/26/2014Good variety of choices and, as always, the food was delicious. Mom had the salad bar as her entree choice and was very satisfied. Dad had tilapia and I had an end cut of prime rib - both great choices. Our reservations were early (6:30) but even as the restaurant filled, our waitress was still able to attend to us in a timely manner.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great meal, wonderful detailzeroneroVIPDined on 9/25/2014Wonderful attention to detail. My wife and I ate here for our anniversary. They set us up with personalized menus, flowers, and luckily we had a window table which was spectacular! Thank you thank you! Gluten free menus are nice too!!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- WonderfulzeroneroVIPDined on 9/23/2014My wife and I ate here Tuesday night and had excellent service and the food was so great! We are coming back Thursday night to celebrate our anniversary, it was that good from the view, service, And the food is awesome! Gluten free menu is nice and has plenty of options. The prime rib and short ribs were both great. The shrimp cocktail is super fresh, the horseradish has a nice kick to it. The creme brûlée is delish!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Happy HourOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/23/2014What was once a very nice dining experience has migrated to a good happy hour experience for early dinner on a budget and not the wonderful diner experience we once enjoyed with expert service at all Chart House locations around the US.Special Features:
- Good, but not gooddnscmcdDined on 9/20/2014My husband and I rarely get a night out to ourselves, so we were looking forward to a nice dinner for 2. The food was good, not over the top. We both had the NY Steak. $200 bill with drinks, appetizer and dessert. However, we were seated in a bench seat along a wall meant for group seating. So it felt as if we were eating with the family next to us. Not ok. All we could really hear was our neighbors conversation. Very hard to enjoy each others company. You definitely want to request an ocean view seat, or at least make sure you're not dining with your neighbor.I would recommend this to a friend.
- 5 Year Anniversarybjay1982Dined on 9/20/2014Celebrated our 5 year with a small group of friends/family. Had a nice half booth near the end of the restaurant, which gave us just the right amount of "quiet" so the table could hold a couple conversations. Service was a little slower than I prefer, but everything came out excellent. Bonus points for printing "Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs..." on the menu, nice touch! Quote my 86 yr old grandmother "the restrooms were disgusting", and she said she notified the hostess on the way out.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Chain resturarant...OpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/19/2014Poor service and even poorer knowledge of food. Bar tender was rude and we never got our drink. I would not recommend this restaurant.
- always niceOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 9/19/2014We go at least six-eight times a year & it is always nice. Good food & service. The view - fabulous!Special Features:
- Romantic EveningromanticdinnerDined on 9/19/2014Highly recommend reservations through "open table". By doing so, and having a Landry Member card for the Chart House we were treated as VIP Guest. We were given a corner table with a 180 degree view of the ocean, a personalized menu, and superb service. The salmon at the Chart House was exquisite! We also received $25 discount for a birthday perq by having the Landry membership (which is through the Chart House). 5 stars for this restaurant!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Bad ServiceOpenTable Diner Since 2012Dined on 9/14/2014The service was sub standard from the time we walked into the restaurant. Right hand didn't know what left hand was doing. Brought the wrong bottle of wine which I had to call the server over to ask why we still hadn't received our wine - 20 minutes later. The food was good but I would not return.Special Features:
- Happy AnniversaryMommyMoDined on 9/13/2014We had a lovely anniversary dinner and especially loved the personalized menus - nice touch.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food temperatureLewismomDined on 9/13/2014I ordered the filet. It was great tasting I just felt that all the food was luke warm. The potatoes had a slight crust on the outside like they had been sitting for a little. I know it would have been excellent had the food been up to temperature and served as soon as it was prepared.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
