Chart House Restaurant - Philadelphia
Great nightFood 5 star
Service a 10 (Svitlana)
The only thing I noticed and this had nothing to do with My night was the restaurant seemed very dated.
With the food and staff that this place has the building should live up to it.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BrunchMy sister and I took our parents to brunch at the Chart House for their anniversary. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. The views were wonderful and so was the food. The Maryland Eggs Benedict and the French toast were really good.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGood FoodThis was my first time at the restaurant and I would have to give it a thumbs up. The food was delicious and definitely worth the price. The only downfall is that they do not have a soda or beer menu, only a wine and cocktail menu if offered. If you do not ask, you will not know they even sell it. I guess that's how they get you to spend more.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMStill Outstanding!My family and I had not been to CH in a while. As the last time (some 6 years ago), it was a great dining experience. It appeals to both seafood and "meat eaters". For a restaurant that features seafood, the filet mignon was very well prepared, rivaling some very good steakhouses. The texture of the cream spinach appealed to my wife and daughter (not real "creamy"), who do not typically like cream spinach.
The only "complaint" (and this is a "pet peeve" of mine); we had a reservation for 7:30pm, but was not seated until 7:48pm. If a restaurant takes reservations, they should honor them. However, this did not take away from the dining experience (once seated). "Shout out" to Svetlana (our Server).6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMRecent ExperienceWe visited on a Friday in June. It was a rainy overcast night but that didn't interrupt the view from the window seats. The food was fantastic. The service was some of the best I have ever had made for a great visit for the family. Just a nice quiet and enjoyable evening. Moderately priced.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMLess than Perfect...is still pretty darn good. There were some snafus when we ate at the chart House last week, but they still did not take away from the delicious food. The staff did everything they could to be sure that we enjoyed our evening. The Shrimp Scampi part of my "Best of Shrimp" dinner was just perfect. The salad bar, as it always is, was full of surprises. I especially appreciated the salmon roe and the anchovies. My dining companions were equally happy with the evening.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing atmosphere, greatRelaxing atmosphere, great food, attentive service. Being on the water was awesome!6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service, Seafood, and ViewWe have eaten at the Chart House numerous times. The Service is excellent, the seafood is fresh, and the view (Delaware River) makes you feel like you are on a cruise/on vacation. The free parking is an added bonus - esp at Penn's Landing.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMPre-Cirque DinnerReservations were prompt. The complimentary valet parking was nice. The service was excellent and the food was exceptional. If they hadn't overcooked the scallops it would have all been OUTSTANDING. I would still recommend the scallops, by the way. A wonderful dining experience!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond to other Chart House'sHave been to many Chart House restaurants - one thing they equally all had was a fantastic view which made the trip wholly worth it! But, this Chart House fell below the others. The main dishes were very good, not disappointing, but the appetizers were less than expectations. Especially since we have ordered the exact same appetizers at the other Chart House's. Had to ask the waiter to bring bread, had to wait extra long for adult drink refills and the salad bar (at all Chart House's) is extremely limited and costly for the lack of luster. Even when ordered with a meal, it's not worth the cost. Will it stop us from going back? Maybe to the Philly Chart House, but never at the others!!!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMMy fiance and I went out toMy fiance and I went out to celebrate, my boss told me about the chart house. It was extremely expensive but worth it! The food was delicious the drinks were good and our waiter James was great! Thank you chart house! Good job!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperbSecond time here, and not disappointed. The best food, view and ambience I have found in Philadelphia. Picey? Yes, but you get what you pay for.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDining on the DelawareWe recently dined at the chart house after many ykears for both of kus. we both found it as delightful as ever. The views and the river traffic are wonderful. The food was good and my friend especially enjoyed the bisque soup which he thought was outstanding. My onlky complaint was sthe bartender who did not know how to amke a Rob Roy.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA Little NoisyI had to give the ambiance only 3 stars this time around because of the couple at the table next to us. They were VERY loud as they bickered over every little thing, including how many muffins the husband had eaten that morning. We almost asked to be re-seated, but then I found it so amusing we decided to stay there. I'm sure they would have reseated us if we'd asked, however. This restaurant is normally quiet and romantic, and we will keep going back there. Wonderful food, service, and view.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is always served quickly,Food is always served quickly, hot and ready to be enjoyed! I usually get the Stuffed Flounder because its the best I have ever had!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING DINING EXPERIENCEMy boyfriend & I went to the Chart House for our 3 yr anniversary and we could have not been happier. From the complimentry valet parking to the quick 5 minute wait for a window table and AMAZING VIEW; we were excited for a great meal. The service was AMAZING!!! Great menu with plenty of options that is was hard to pick just one. Food came out in a timely manner and I would definitely recomment the Hot Lava Chocolate cake it is worth the wait and worth putting some of your entree in a box for left over tomorrow. The ambience was OUTSTANDING. We came from a busy day of working and the Phillies came and we were rushing all over town and when we got to our table there was an instant relaxation just looking out on the river.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMFive StarFood service drink all top shelf. Just waiting for our next visit.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMmemorable experienceA great time and great service from the time you walked in to the time they pulled your car around..Outstanding food..5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMBusy Mother's DayThe place was busy as expected for Mother's Day nevertheless the service was great, food was excellent service was awesome! The Chart House is my favorite place to dine for special occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMServerWe had Isaac. He was awesome. He was so accomodating to us. He has the best personality for that type of work. He went in the kitchen and got ice cream for my 2 year old grand daughter. Which means a lot to me.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day CelebrationMy family had dinner to celebrate Mother's Day on Saturday. We were a bit late from our reservation on a busy night. The desk staff was accommodating and understanding. The waiter was very helpful as well.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionWe made a reservation a month ahead of time. Table did not have a view of the water and I was disappointed by this. Our waiter seemed overwhelmed when he saw our table of 9. He took a drink order and brought us water but 25 minutes later we still did not have our drinks or appetizers. I asked at the hostess stand for assistance, then our experience improved and the rest of the evening was pleasant and the food was excellent.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful View of the Del RiverI love this restaurant. We went there for a company outing 3 years ago, and when I was planning the outing last night, I wanted to make sure we went back. We picked a 3 course meal deal. My dish was one of the best fish dishes I have ever had. They gave a seat next to a window, and because we work on the Camden Waterfront by the Aquarium, we were able to see our offices. The only downside, and if I could give a 4.5 for service instead of 4, I would, was I had to asked twice for a soda, and dessert took a while to come out. The mud pie was absolutely delicious!! Make sure to come to this treasure on the Penns Landing Waterfront in Philadelphia.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerWe always enjoy the food at the Chart House. sunday May 4 was no exception except we were there in the end of the evening and they ran out of alot of the food choices.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary NightI always wanted to try the Chart House in Philadelphia so bad and I finally did. The food was amazing! I had Shrimp Cocktail and Crab Cake. The crab cake had large lumps of crab and was presented in a very well fashion. It was very exciting. My girlfriend also loved her lobster bisque. For entrees, we had the Shrimp Fresca and the Filet Mignon. And for dessert, we had the Chocolate Lava Cake. The cake was to die for. It took a few minutes, but it was nothing like I tasted before. Would definitely go again. Also, our waitress Natalie was one of the best waitresses around. She had extremely good manners, but I liked that fact that she realized we were a young couple and treated us a young couple. I would definitely go again in the future.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Chart House, what a view...If you are in the Penn's Landing area and like to watch water while eating a delicious meal; Philly's hottest waterfront dining spot is The Chart House. Located just over the edge of dry land, this place has everything. Multiple levels, tranquility, amazing Lobster Bisque, great service, cocktails strong enough for your dad to enjoy... Think you might still be hungry? Then just place you order for Chopped Challenge. It's that thing where you have to order your dessert 30 minutes ahead of time so chefs can turn their basket and pantry items into a chocolate memory that will have you smiling as you leave.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMUsually the service is excellent.Usually the service is excellent. Unfortunately one of the main entrees arrived about 10 minutes after the other entrees were served.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place; great time.I ordered Dynamite Mahi-Mahi which was exceptionally good; my wife had the grilled seafood sampler, which was good, but not great. However, we had a table by the window on a gorgeous day at sunset. We were allowed to take our time in between courses (certainly not a gimme at many restaurants these days) and enjoy our bottle of wine during and after dinner.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMService superb, WonderfulService superb, Wonderful menu variety. Accessible to major venues in the city! Management staff makes concerted efforts to be visible and greet patrons!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth every penny (and pound).The staff was fantastic (with very minor exceptions). Our waitress was very attentive and couldn't have made us feel more at home.
Overall they made our 5th anniversary very special.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food as always atFabulous food as always at the Chart House Philadelphia.
Waiter was excellent and explained everything that was
Will be back!!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMEvening of BlissI really wanted to step my game up in regards to restaurants. I was searching for a restaurant that had a beautiful view, great food, a nice mature atmosphere, good service and great parking. Well my wife was impressed I was happy. Oh yes it was affordable4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and customer service.Great food and customer service. Everyone was so nice and came to the table exactly when we needed them. The view of the water made it so calm and romantic! I loved it and my boyfriend had a great birthday. He's already asking to go back.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience! Service GREAT!This was a date night late birthday celebration visit for my husband. the food was good. My husband had the filet mignon. It was a little overcooked but he like it. I hand the Alaskan King Crab which was very good and served with Baked Potato and drawn better. The drinks were good. I had the Peach Tea and My husband had the apple martini which we both enjoyed. This is a nice place and it has a very nice view. The service was OUTSTANDING! Issac our server was attentive, friendly, and very prompt. We did not order dessert but Issac bought my husband a dish of fresh fruit with freshly made whipped cream in honor of his birthday which was awesome!!! We would visit again.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThis resteraunt has an outstandingThis resteraunt has an outstanding view and elegant dining ambiance. The server was very attentative and had a great attitude. He was quick and very proffesional. We had a very romantic time and I was impressed with the food. The only issue we had was that the food came out a little quick and was only warm, still deliciouse but only warm not hot. It was well worth the money spent. I asked my now fiance for her hand in marrigae and this was a great start to the evening.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA Great Birthday Dinner!Dinner was special for my wife's birthday, just the two of us. We have been to this Chart House before, although not for two years.
Ambiance on Delaware river, late evening into the night is beautiful. I was especially pleased to find on arrival that using the Open Table reservations (first time ever) was absolutely acknowledged and respected by the front door staff. In fact, we arrived early and were shown our table 25 minutes early! Our service with Sebastian was great and our entrees (salmon and prime rib) were the best we have had for a long time anywhere! (We travel frequently throughout USA) And a cheesecake birthday cake with candle was nice final touch. Even the coffee pleased my birthday girl! Will go there again for sure!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for an early dinnerWe went for an early dinner for our wedding anniversary and enjoyed our meal and experience very much..The food was delicious and well prepared although the leek cake that came with my flounder was a bit too greasy...We enjoyed our delicious lava cake which was an awsome dessert....My regular coffee was disappointing in that it was served
lukewarm....The best part of our experience was the appetizer which was the guacamole mango crab stack which was a total delightful surprise....We enjoyed our time at the Chart House and looking forward to another wonderful time at the Chart House.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen we dine out for a specialWhen we dine out for a special occasion, we want the whole package: good food, attentive service and great surroundings. At the Chart House, we got it all. The food was delicious! We don't care if it's Philadelphia's best, but in our opinion it was perfect so who cares if Craig LeBan(sp?)loves it or not. The view is to die for, and on a beautiful evening, we were enchanted. The Chart House made our little celebration as good as it gets. We plan on celebrating many other occasions there where we were made to feel special.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Surprise!!After reading mixed reviews on The Chart House I was skeptical as to dining here or not. With that being said I can only chalk the bad reviews up to some sad outlooks on life. From the moment we entered the door we were greeted by the most pleasant young lady named Melisa who was more than accommodating when we arrived with an extra guest, and then again when we requested to move to another table to avoid the noise of the kitchen. Our server Eric was attentive and helpful with several wonderful recommendations! The wine list was quite extensive which I found as a pleasant surprise. The food was flavorful and delicious. Hats off to the chef for preparing such amazing dishes. Will definitely return!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMApril "Foods" Day-Chart HouseI enjoyed my evening at the Chart House. When making my reservation, I made mention of the day being my Birthday, and that I wanted the experience to be very memorable. Upon arriving we were greeted by a valet, who did his thing with style. I was greeted with "Happy Birthdays" from practically everyone we came in contact with. The food was great. We started off with an amazing appetizer, that was recommended by our waiter, "Sharaque". The main course was different, but enjoyable, and honestly we did not have room for desert, and just ended with some hot tea. Overall, the night was one to remember, I enjoyed myself immensely! I have always enjoyed dining at the Chart House, but this night was one to definitely remember.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a group of nine forWe were a group of nine for our Easter dinner. Atmosphere, food and our server, Brooke , all great.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWas there for Sunday brunchWas there for Sunday brunch on Easter. The salad bar was fine, but the food buffet was awful and not nearly worth the $50 per person price. Additionally, the dessert table was terrible; all stuff out of a box from the supermarket. I felt like I had been ripped off. I like the Chart House, but I will never go for a brunch buffet again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI always love coming to theI always love coming to the Chart House but this time I was somewhat disappointed. Our waiter Dan was great but our meals from appetizers to the entrees took a very long time to be prepared. Also, the foood was not as appetizing as it has been in the past and I always order scallops and they were extremely small, very disappointing.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI have read such mixed reviewsI have read such mixed reviews about the Chart House but I have enjoyed excellent experiences each time I have been there.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDELICIOUS! MUST TRY!!The best food I've had in a really long time!! The chef is a genius with flavors! Our server was a little ditzy, but great service either way! HIGHLY recommended for everyone! I can't wait to go back and am actually planning a trip to Chart House Baltimore very soon!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for our 3rd yearWe went here for our 3rd year anniversary for our book club, we really enjoyed ourselves the food and drinks were delicious, the view breathtaking, and Sebastian our waiter was a gem.
