  • "I have been going to The Chart House for years and it's a great place for a special occasion dinner or a romantic night out. I was celebrating my anniversary and they even printed HAPPY ANNIVERSARY on our menu ! That was a nice touch. Over the years, the menu has changed and I wish they would bring back the Peppercorn Filet, and my Long Island Ice Tea's were pretty weak, but that won't stop me from continuing to go there. The salad bar is WONDERFUL !!"

  • "This restaurant was recommended by a friend. Made RSVP online. Was notified that window (views of beach) would be accommodated if possible when you arrive, which is completely understandable. Our table was in a side room and was shared by a 15 person special event and two other groups. Given the number of other open tables around the restaurant I would have thought they would have seated us elsewhere. However the noise was not unbearable, just a little louder than I would have preferred. It took a little edge off the romantic setting. The food was above average (Prime Rib) and worth the price. The server rattled off her prepared speech a little too quickly and given the elevated noise levels, made it hard to hear."

  • "I used to come here even before I moved the the area Best ocean view around - right above the sand next to the RB harbor Food is great - sea food is mostly what I get I usually take family there for birthdays and gatherings - especially out of towners They will personalize the menu for you if you ask - i.e HB or Anniversary etc Have always loved everything about the restaurant!"

  • "Over the last decades, we used to eat here expecting a great salad bar. The last two times the salad bar has been left unattended with brown lettuce. My wife ordered just the salad bar for dinner and had to twice tell the servers that the lettuce was brown. The salad bar cost is outrageous, considering what you get."

  • "My husband and I were looking forward to dinner at the Chart House because years past we'd enjoyed many many dinners there (prior to the purchase by Landry's). It was glorified airplane food and overpriced as well. Food was mediocre, but the view was spectacular. In the past the food matched the view. Now it was bland, not cooked well and forgettable. We will not return."

  • "It was our 26 th anniversary. I had recently dined at the Charthouse in Monterey and it was excellent! So we came back to this one. Our server was not helpful or not very friendly. My husbands prime rib was excellent , I had the macadamia mahi, it was floating in peanut sauce which made it very soggy. Our server suggested the lava cake which we had decided on, but told us we needed to tell her 30 mins ahead of time. Sadly she never came back to check on us."

  • "While the restaurant provides a wide selection of entrees, we selected the Ahi spiced Tuna and the Salmon with vegetables. We also enjoyed their Pot Sticker appetizers. Have eaten here often and never been disappointed."

  • "We loved our visit to the Chart House. It is absolutely beautiful inside and there isn't a better view to be found. We are a middle income family so this experience was a "fancy" dinner out. Our waiter, Fred, was very efficient and made us feel welcome. The only bad thing that happened was while at the salad bar I cheerfully pointed out to my mother that they had string cheese bits available! I was embarrassingly reprimanded by the salad bar attendant and told that they were palm hearts! I'm glad the lighting was low because I'm sure I must have turned purple! I would love to go again for a special occasion but I'll keep quiet about anything served at the salad bar!"

  • "Awesome experience food, service and view. Our guests plane arrived late so we missed our original reservation at a Manhattan Beach restaurant. They would not guarantee a table as we were going to be 30 minutes late. A friend suggested the Chart House. Not wanting to take a risk I booked the Chart House. Great hostess. She said if you are willing to wait just 10 minutes I can give you the best table in the house. She said it was worth waiting for... and it was. Our guests really had a wonderful dinner. Nice welcome to Los Angeles for our Dutch friends. Plenty or space between tables allowing for a nice conversations."

  • "The setting is gorgeous but the food was disappointing. We ordered the crab cakes as an appetizer. There was no skimping on the crab meat, however, it lacked a good crust. We also ordered the lobster bisque which was like warm with just above average flavor. For our mains, I had the garlic panko crusted sea bass and my husband had the macadamia crusted mahi. Neither of our fish dishes had a crust, just a mushy breading. Flavor was good though. The sea bass came with creamed spinach which was rather luke warm. Service was slow, she had difficulty with timing and we had to wait for everything from water, to wine to bread service. An average dining experience, but not worth our dining dollars. Next time lunch, maybe."

  • "A month ago I made reservations for 12 at 5PM on Friday 3/7/14. On 3/6 They called to confirm the reservations I assured them we were coming. We arrived there at 455 and checked in. We were told they were setting up our table. At 510 my son went up to the desk and asked when we would be seated since they didn't seem to be busy at that time. He was told that "they were just filling our water glasses." At 518 we were finally shown to our table and seated, interestingly enough there was NO water in our water glasses!. After we were seated it was at least an other 5 minutes before we were asked if we wanted drinks! After that point the service was faultless and we spent a very enjoyable evening with excellent food and a great view."

  • "Food quality was mixed, ranging from excellent to mediocre. Ingredients are generally fine, preparation is spotty. Pick the right dish and you will be happy, but expect frequent clunkers. View is spectacular - even at night. Go for the view not the food."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Went for my Birthday. Was very glad that we had reservations as they had an unexpectedly large number of diners. This might have been the reason that the service was not as good as we usually expect. My scallops were some of the best I have ever had with just a hint of Wasabi. My wife had the mixed seafood which was good except for the Salmon being a little under done. The view of the beach is incredible, especially at dusk. I will definitely go back again."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "When perfect food and perfect service meet you have one on the best restaurants in Southern California. The view is amazing and the food is "over the top" delicious. Get the prime rib if you love great prime rib -- just like the prime rib out of your own oven. The Manager was great and our server Nancy was PERFECT. You can not get a better meal on the coast and the restaurant and décor are wonderful. Great views of the majestic Pacific Ocean so ask for a table in front next to the window."

  • "Chart House food was EXCELLENT, as usual - no surprise there! Superb appetizers, lobster bisque soup (rich & creamy!), entrees & dessert - YUM! A couple minor disappointments: 1) WAY TOO DARK to even read my menu; had to hold table's wholly-inadequate battery candle over menu to read it; very uncomfortable. I actually DO like to READ my menu, SEE what I'm eating, and SEE my dining companions across the table. 2) Had a gin gimlet at the bar that was the worst one EVER - ANYWHERE ($10+); like drinking gin straight up (no Rose's lime juice). Apparently THIS Chart House has "their own way"; hasn't happened at other Chart House restaurants, though."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "The food was magnificent! ordered ahi tuna that came with tasty rice, the jumbo coconut shrimps were made to perfection. The sauce was a bit too sweet for my liking but they were perfect without the sauce. The view of the ocean is perfect with the lighting and the music they were played made it extra romantic. I did wish their bread was a little more fresh. I'm a bread eater and it was a little on the hard side, but then again our reservation was at 9 p.m. at night. Will definitely go back, the waiter was very professional and I have already recommended friends to check the place out.!"

  • "I've been to this Charthouse in the past, the selection of fresh fish was limited compared to other visits however the scallops and sea bass were great. This is a great pace to watch the surf, at high tide the waves go right under the restaurant."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "$35 steaks and salmon dishes were sparce and blah, bested by even the likes of Outback. Calamari entree was disappointing, and the breaded shrimp entree seemed to steal the recipe from the likes of Norm's. Interior is getting tired, and the smaller wing room seating areas are musty and stuffy. You're paying for the real estate, but not all tables present the view that would make that 2 hour beach rental a worthwhile.investment."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I have been to the Charthouse before but this was not a great experience for my husband or myself on our 37th anniversary. I made reservations 3 weeks in advance and when we arrived they stuck us in a side room that was loud (music) and had an awful view. My husband asked to be moved into the main room and then we were put under a vent that was blasting cold air. It was not good and certainly not worth the $200 bill that we got......VERY DISAPOINTED!!!!!!"

  • "As always the ambience was outstanding. It was Valentine Day so it was a little noisier than normal. The waitress was busier and the service was not up to their normal outstanding standard. The food was fabulous and the view spectacular. Over all it was a wonderful evening."

  • "My Vice President was coming from out of town and I selected this restaurant based on the wonderful things I have heard from so many people and of course my Yelp reviews. This restaurant is perfect for all occasions from birthdays to anniversaries to brunch. The happy hour selection was outstanding- the drinks were great and the food was scrumptious! Our meals were great and the salad bar is impressive-custom made Caesar salads and a great selection of fresh fruits and veggies. Even dessert was awesome. The view however tops everything here. We made it in for a perfect sunset."

  • "Ambience vs Food: It is almost impossible to choose which is better. This restaurant sits right off the beach. On a clear day, can see all the way down to Malibu from your window seat. I took my girlfriend on Valentine's and the scenery of couples walking along the beach with the waves crashing against the rocks, brought her to tears on this romantic occasion. Then there's the food. She was disappointed that the stuffed mushrooms were so good because she can never fully enjoy them from anywhere else again. I had the brandy peppercorn medallions and the flavors explodes your taste buds. Absolutely orgasmic! Definitely a great night out!!!"

  • "Reservations were for 7 pm, but weren't seated until 7:30. Once seated, everything was great. We ordered the warm spinach salad that was delicious. The bacon bit were a bit hard though. Our entree's were New Wave Surf & Turf, consisting of tender short rib meat & 2 scallops. Scallops were perfection, leaving us wanting 2 more. Also ordered was the 14 oz NY Strip and a Filet Mignon. Our friends finished every bite. We ended the night with their signature Hot Lava Cake that was decadent. Our waiter was attentive, courteous, and kept our glasses full, without being disruptive. They have overbooked Valentines Day in the past, with tables overflowing with guest and felt like sardines. This year, the tables had plenty of room and felt very cozy."

  • ""The setting was beautiful. We were there when the sun set, it was gorgeous. The salad bar was delicious, but my beef medallions with shrimp scampi was bland. I sent the shrimp scampi back to the kitchen and asked for the coconut shrimp. I ate little to no beef. The service was great.""
