Diner Reviews
  • "This is our favorite Restaurant. We have been going to this location for over 15 years and have never been disappointed in the food, service or Atmosphere. We would highly recommend the Chart House for any occasion."

  • "My fiancé and I were celebrating his birthday. Our reservations were for 7:45 pm which allowed us to view the sun setting while we dined in our appetizer. We ordered the crab cake with the avocado/corn dressing which was bursting with flavor. The wine list is very impressive as well. My fiancé ordered the prime rib dinner, and I selected the crunchy coconut shrimp with crab fried rice. Both entrees were cooked to perfection and full of flavor. The restaurant is located on the beach, with tranquil views of sand and cascading waves. Our server Michael was very knowledgeable of the menu and provided great recommendations. This is a great restaurant, and we will return."

  • "When we walked in it smelled like a sewer and they had fans blowing in the front. We ordered Filet Mignon and it was way undercooked - when I cut into it blood was running on the plate. So they took it back to refire it they said it was a good training occurrence. There we nats flying around and 1 ended up in our food. We had not been there in years and now I remember why. Will not be going back there again."

  • "There was an odor coming form the bathroom. It smelled like a sewage leak. They placed fans to disspell it but it seemingly only spread it. I am sure that it is not permanent but it did not add to my experience."

  • "Great place to watch a sun set. Wonderful food, friendly environment and the prices compliment the quality of the food well. Definitely coming back in the near future."

  • "Even though we were 10 minutes late, we were still seated at a table with a great view of the ocean. We were dining with out of town friends & they loved the service & the view!"

  • "After a couple of less than stellar experiences here this visit was excellent. Valet parking was very convienient. The food was great as well as the service, a pleasant engaging waitstaff, wonderfull house wines, and window seating as requested made for a very enjoyable birthday dinner. Server Elizabeth was attentive and not too hurried allowing us to enjoy the ocean views aproaching sunset at leasure. The fresh fish offerings were cooked to perfection as well as the steak, and the topper of complementary birthday mudpie made for an overall 4 and 1/2 star experience. The only drawback to the whole evening was the background music that was too loud and frenetic for the eightysomethings, we will be returning for another occaision soon."

  • "Disappointed in food. We usually visit every couple of months."

  • "I want to start by saying, what is written below has not been my experience at other Chart Houses. This pertains only to the Redondo Beach location. Although the salad bar was excellent, everything else we were served was inedible. My fish was overcooked, my husband's chicken was dry and my son's shrimp was tough and chewy. The hot lava cake was so overcooked, there was no lava to be had. Having said that, if you're looking for a great place to people watch with gorgeous beach views, this is the place"

    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The Chart House isn't exotic or flashy, however it is very good at standard seafood. They offer enough options on how your fish is prepared to make a wide crowd happy. They also offer enough surf-turf options to keep the non fish folks or little ones happy too. They generally stay stocked well with a spread of available fish and shell fish and the menu shows many ways that they can offer each one, even if it isn't how it is listed on the main menu. No matter who you take there, they should be more than happy."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Restaurant sat us right near the waiter's service area and there was very little room behind my chair and the table behind us. Despite this limited space between the tables waiters and bus boys insisted in trying to squeeze by and I was getting bumped throughout the meal. Also, the tray of dishes and left over food from cleaning tables was literally two feet away from me and this killed the ambiance of the evening."

  • "a mainstay when seeking an upscale local restaurant, ocean views, great food, a better than average wine list, and always assured "over the top" service. Nothing better .."

  • "We wanted a quiet dinning with our senior pastor and his wife and it was requested in advance. For some reason, the host sat us right next to a group of people (with kids) in the separated section of the restaurant, not on the main floor where we normally sit. There were many empty seats then. It was so noisy and chaotic that we couldn't get much conversation going, not what I expected from a classy restaurant where we dined for many years...very disappointing. The service of the waitresses were good as always."

  • "We enjoy Chart House for most of our family birthday dinners. We did enjoy dinner, food was good. Server was nice but not overly attentive. Have been to other Chart Houses and we always liked the Redondo one since it did not seem as much of a chain restaurant but it was not as this time. The one thing that disappointed me the most was we were there for a birthday celebration and stated on reservation. NOT once did anyone acknowledge a birthday. Table next to us sort of had that same experience since I heard the gentleman say to his server when their dessert came out, "It is her birthday, does she not get acknowledged?" The server apologized for not knowing and brought her a personalized menu. Sad no acknowledgment for celebrations?"

  • "My boss had some business guest from Japan and they were happy about the great beach view and seafood. Thank you very much for the wonderful hospitality. We will recommend this place to someone who have important guests, or events. The price is little high, but the view and food are impressive."

  • "The ambiance was great, the food was delicious and the service was excellent from the parking attendant to management to our very efficient waitress."

  • "Caution. When you get your reservation confirmation, you will be told that your table may not be ready at the time indicated and ours was definitely not. The restaurant warns you, however, that if you are late by 15, or more, you will lose your reservation. Crazy."

  • "06.19.14 - Went to Chart House to celebrate Wedding Anniversary today - early evening. Food, Service and View were excellent - however - the noise level was very high - primarily caused by loud, percussive music probably from the Bar area - forcing the dining custmers to have to nearly shout across the table to be understood, thus adding to the noise. A modest amount of acoustic control would add immeasureably to total enjoyment at this otherwise excellent eating place."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "The service was top-notch, the ocean view is spectacular, but the food was just okay. It's been better over the years. I won't hurry back, which is a bummer because I really like the Chart House, but the food was not worth the price."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "We go to Chart House on may special occassions and are never disappointed. We always ask for window seating and most often get it. The scenic views can be awesome. especially when we are entertained by a dolphin show...amazing. Thanks so much Chart House for your reliably good food and service. You get a AAA rating from the Bertlers!!"

  • "The food was disappointing to say the least. It was the worst prime rib that I can remember ever having. Hard and dry!!! 2 things you never want in the food you ordered. Very disappointing when your there for a special occasion. It's a nice place, but your there for the food not just the view."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The Chart House makes for a great dining experience. It is on the sand in Redondo Beach, and has a beautiful view. The food is very good, and the service is hospitable. The lava cake is the best I've ever had, and is worth ordering."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "The Chart House never fails to disappoint. I've eaten at Chart House Redondo many times and this time the food and ambiance was just as amazing as all of the others. The food is unbeatable, the view on the water was fabulous and the vibe so relaxing I could have stayed all night. If you have a special occasion coming up or would just like to spend a romantic evening over a glass of wine and the best steak you will find in the South Bay, then The Chart House is the place to do it."

  • "I have been to chart house 4 or 5 times over the last 15 years. The last time being 2008. I remember it being so much better. The drinks/cocktails we had beforehand were poor. The food was good but not great, and please tell me who serves an Irish coffee without cream? The view is awesome, couldn't ask for more, but i could have gone and sat on the wall by the beach and had the same view instead of paying $150 per head. won't go back!"

  • "Finally! Chart House/Redondo Beach has improved their food, service, and management. Previous to 6/13/2014, we stopped going to Chart House/Redondo Beach because of very poor service, food, and sloppy floor management. We decided to give it "one more try" and we were pleasantly surprised. If Chart House/Redondo Beach continues providing good service, food, and management, they will definitely be in our top five "go to" restaurants."

  • "The restaurant was very dark which was fine, but we couldn't read the bill. When we got home we saw that we had been charged for approximately $50.00 worth of stuff we had not ordered nor received. We tried to call the restaurant and the phone number on the bill would not connect you to a person. Unfortunately the food was also substandard. My wife ordered the blackened white sea bass and it was definitely not blackened, in fact it had absolutely no flavor. My son ordered the prime rib and didn't eat it, also didn't want to take it home as leftovers even for the dog. My sons friend tried to pretend that she liked her salmon, but ate only two bites."

  • "I took my son & grandson, age 4, for dinner. The server was just outstanding and made us feel as if we were the only ones in the restaurant. From the appetizer to the salad bar to our entrees and ending with the cbocolate lava cake, my grandson's favorite part of the meal, everything was excellent. I have been eating at the Charthouse for almost years, and have never been disappointed."

  • "It was our very first time to visit this restaurant and our expectation was high. Food was good and the sunset view was beautiful. But our waiter, Chris, was not so good. He took our knives before we started main dish and it took more than 15 minutes to get a bill. Well, though it was not the perfect dinner, we may come back.."

  • "Always great to sit and watch the waves crash. Great crab cakes! I'm from Maryland where crab is king and these were good. Very good waitress. Corkage is only $15.00. So bring your own fab wine, makes the high prices of the food not so bad. Salad bar is still best in town. A staple on my restaurant list. On your birthday they bring you a free mud pie dessert!,"
