    Mahi mahi was really bad it had an off odor. one of our steaks was way overcooked. The server was kind of offended when we metioned the problems. Manager came and appologize but that was it.

    I have eaten here on several occasions when doing business in the Philadelphia area. The downstairs restaurant was closed so was seated upstairs. Was seated behind a large wall in which I think the service area was. Felt isolated from the main area. The short ribs were good (special that night), although the seafood is what I usually get. Wine list adequate. As a Landry property, this restaurant is definitely on the higher side of the middle line. The river view of the USS New Jersey at night was very impressive.

    The food & service was wonderful but the music was loud & not appropriate for dining. It was more for a late night club not for dinner. Apparently, it is "piped" in to the whole restaurant so it could not be changed or muted without affecting the other patrons. But, noticing that at 5:30 there were very few of us & the others older than us (0ver 60), turning off the music would not have been a problem. We suggested lite jazz or other more appropriate dinner music. They did turn it down which made our dinner more enjoyable. The view is spectacular overlooking the Delaware River to Camden. Again, the food was wonderful, especially the East Meets West tuna appetizer. The staff was very accomodating to our need to leave in time for a play.

    What more do you need? The Chart House offers a variety of fresh fish. My husband and I had the wild Alaskan Salmon. It was done and served to perfection. The view on the Delaware is also a unique experience.

    Overall, I though it was good. the food was great and the service was on time. However, When I asked about using the Landry Select club card it created a problem. I left the card in car and waitress indicated that with my info she could identify it. However, I seem to not have register the card from my first trip. My companion indicated that she was condescending during our conversation and even left the table to avoid making a comment. On the other hand, I did not noticed this altitude, but it soured the ending of a good meal. I did use my AARP discount.

    I read a lot of mixed reviews so I was hesitant about dining here. It was my dates birthday so i wanted to make sure the night was extra special. Despite the mixed reviews, I decided to go along and see for myself. Everything was outstanding. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess who promptly seated us before our reservation. We had a nice seat on the second floor which over looked the water, where we could see the city lights as well as boats passing by. Our waiter Issac was PHENOMENAL, he went above and beyond to make our dining experience memorable.

    From the moment the valet welcomed us to the Chart House, we knew that the employees cared about customer satisfaction. Our waiter, Michael, was enthusiastic and answered every question we had with great courtesy. The food was excellent and we felt that we received very good value for money. We're looking forward to our next visit.

    Appetizers were served in shifts. Bisque appeared to have sat in service window for some time as it was served with thick film on top. Half of entrees were warm at best. Special lava cake birthday dessert was dry and contained no lava. When pointed out to server he was ambivalent and was more interested in selling us after dinner drinks. Chef needs to take control of his kitchen. On the positive side the car valet was friendly and nice.a Would not recommend.

    We ate at this restaurant last October on a visit to Philadelphia. The food at that time was excellent as was the service. What has changed? Everything!! It took over 20 minutes for the server to arrive. Appetizers were ordered and took another 20 minutes to be served. Entrees took 35 minutes to get to us. In that time another server came over and stated that there was "a problem with the kitchen-can we remind them what we ordered?" Our waiter returned at least 6 times to say "I am so sorry but thank you for understanding." Did we say we understood - NO. Manager was asked to come over. He was very accommodating, understanding, and professional. Service did not improve after his visit. But he fixed Landy card problem.

Our reservations were on time and out of the party of 6, 3 were there for the first time. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, the service, the view and the central location, I 95 (North) is literally across Columbus Blvd. We would definitely go there again.

    I hadn't been to this location in more than 10 years. Saturday was fantastic. The food was terrific, service from Wendy may have been as good as I've ever experienced. Even the valet parking accommodated a particular request. W were seated near the window, with a view of the Delaware River, boats in the water, the Battleship New Jersey in sight; the aquarium was seen as well. HIGHLY recommended.

    I dined with my wife and teenage daughter to celebrate my and my daughter's birthday. We had an outstanding meal and enjoyed our first visit to this restaurant. My glass of pinot noir was excellent, and my wife enjoyed a moscato sangria. The lobster bisque was a hit, as were all of our entrees: salmon for my daughter and snapper for my wife. I loved every bite of the Blood Orange Glazed King Salmon with root vegetables. We saved room for dessert: key lime pie and mud pie - both very good. We sat next to a large glass window overlooking the Delaware River. Service and food were top notch - this is a restaurant that we will come to again on another trip to the city.

    Made reservations for the Chart House to celebrate my long-term college friend's birthday. She left her kids and husband at home to come out. To my surprise she has never eaten at the CH. They placed us at a Waterview window table. A great view. The meal was paced appropriately. The appetizers were tasty but expensive- try the oysters on the half shell and spring rolls. The lobster bisque and stuffed shrimp was excellent. Our service was outstanding. Although the chart house is known as a chain restaurant and a little tourist trap we had a wonderful time. Nice crowd. Couples , parties and families all enjoy the place for special occasions. Bar area hopping too. Valet parking is available so no stress about parking.
