    We are here for work since Febraury from Fl. We have tried alot of restaurants and not Chart House since we have one in Melbourne and wanted to try different places. We came back to what we know is very good. Chart house is the best overall. From now on we will be back to Chart House for our favorite meals. Also, we have found the service in Ca is, to be nice - not that great. It was at Chart House.

    We travel to Hermosa Beach annually and the Chart House is our first stop. The greeting is prompt, and our table ready within minutes. Great view of surf if you can sit relatively close to the windows. Service was right on and dishes were timed perfectly. Any of the Seafood dishes are some of the best in California.

    LA born & raised, now a Texan, but we LOVE this restaurant when we visit. We asked some friends to join us Sunday evening for a special dinner and we all had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. They put us at an awesome window table, which we stayed at for nearly 4 hours. Fantastic food and salad bar. Service is excellent and the surroundings and view are exceptional.

    tbe Chart House is right on the edge of the sand beach, facing the sunset especially aligned this time of year. The wine and drinks are top shelf. We always have the fresh salad bar. The price is high but the salads are perfect. Everything is cold, fresh, tasty. Presentation dishes are shallow so the contents remains crisp as the bowl sits in a crushed ice bed. The servers are attentive, keeping the dishes well stocked. The Alaskan King Crab legs are always excellent. My spiced seared ahi on wasabi mashed potatoes was very good. Valet parking is quick and responsive.

    Very much a throwback to the early days of the salad bar craze. Here, the prices are current but the whole experience is dated. Very unimaginative salad bar. Iceberg Lettuce? Raw yellow onions? Ahi tuna was stringy, not the right cut for serving black and blue. And they still offer farm-raised salmon. This feels like a restaurant run by accountants, not chefs. The bottom line is you go here once every ten years and hope something changed.

  • Daughter's birthday
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/8/2014
    The front desk was well staffed, but seemed somewhat confused. I had to check back with them 2x before being seated. The table was set with special menus congratulating my daughter on her birthday, nice surprise. We also had an ocean view window table. It's not nearly as much fun sitting anywhere else at this establishment. The restaurant was extremely busy for a Wed. nite. It took a little while for the server to get to us; but he did a terrific job once he arrived. Our first choice of appetizer was sold out, as was the risotto, but our second choices were delicious. Lava cake for dessert has to be ordered with the meal. It was definitely worth doing.

    We chose the Chart House Redondo beach because we had our rehersal dinner there 37 years ago and we wanted to have our anniversary dinner there while we were in town. We made an early reservation ( 6 pm ) so it would be alittle calmer than a full blown Friday night later and we hope to catch the sunset. We got a great window seat and really enjoyed the view. The service was very attentive and we enjoyed our food selections the manager came over and chatted with us and we asked him to take some pixs of us well he said one of his servers was a photographer so he got him and we got some great pixs and memories soo Loved our time at the Chart House

We tried a new wine from the extensive list and enjoyed it thoroughly. We requested a window table and after a short wait, we were seated at a table with a fantastic view of the ocean.

    Although the food was great and our server was good we requested a table with a view and in my opinion out view was sub par. We appreciated customizing our menu with a congratulaions message but they didnt do anything else to make us feel extra special. Especially considering we were celebrating our 1 yr wedding anniversary.

    Prime rib ordered by fiance was tough and lacking flavor - very disappointed as we hadn't been to the Charthouse for quite some time and looking forward to quality meal. My braised rib dish was better, but not fork tender as expected. Drinks were also sub par - fiance gave suggestions on how to make it the second time around. The only item we would recommend is the oysters on a half shell which was the best part of the meal. The ocean view was great - but disappointment of meal took away from the entire experience. The location of the restaurant is amazing with the ocean view - now if they can just match the quality of the food with the price and view it would be a great spot for special occasions.
