    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.

    Well, I made 7:15 reservations so I could see the sunset. We didn't get seated until 7:45. It was pretty much too late by that time. People were just lingering from an earlier reservation and apparently they didn't want to leave until they saw the sun go down. The manager was polite and apologized and offered an appetizer, which was nice, but we were still there an had to be somewhere and had to rush our dinner. But the food was amazing as always. I usually have a great experience there, so I won't let this keep me from going again. At the end of the day, it was great food and great service.

    Dined on 9/3/2014
    We went around 6:30 on a weekday and the place was not crowded. Ordered calamari and fresh oysters for appetizer. The calamari was not tasty (not seasoned properly?) nor crispy as we like. Most oysters were gritty and not as fresh. The worst one was the prime rib. Although prepared medium rare as orderd, it was served rather cold. We told the waiter that it was not warm enough and he took it back. Within minutes another waiter brought it back. We tried the meat and found it to be still cold. Then the manager came, and we asked if they used the microwave but he said no, with an attitude. He did not apologize and said they can do it over, but by that time, we were upset and declined. Bad experience overall. Won't go again.

    LETDOWN
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    I have frequented the Chart house on and off since the mid-seventies.... It was always known for good food excellent service and a view to die for... That was then....In my personal opinion The decor is now dated the food is marginal and doesn't compete for the price range that they charge.... The drinks are weak the service just ok but it still has a great view... With the construction and changes that are going to take place close by(once again in my opinion) this restaurant needs to re-evaluate the way it conducts business....because it won't last... Not for what they charge...The staff including the manager were even changing light bulbs right where we were eating(very tacky!!).... Thank you

    Had a fantastic time, the appetizers were delicious, the mains looked great and desert was way larger than I thought. I had a great time with my family and it was definitely up to the caliber that I remember of this restaurant. There were only two down sides for me, in my opinion. First was that a lot of the dishes had some sort of wasabi sauce or mention of wasabi in the menue. While I appreciate the different approach on menue items, I was hoping for more traditional options. Second, when we made our reservation, we asked for a birthday option for my mother and it didn't happen despite requesting it both through OpenTable.com and by following up with the restaurant by phone the day before. Still had an excellent time, though!

    We took a large group here for dinner. The Chart House provides a reliable selection of seafood. Nothing spectacular, but good, solid cooking. We had two disapointments. The music track was too loud to allow for good converasation to be heard across our large table, and we were allocated a table that did not have a good view of the sea and sunset. I understand that not everyone can have a front row seat, but it does make a difference to get one of the tables with a sea view.

    This is the first time I was at this location. I usually go to the one in Malibu (now closed). It was my boyfriend's birthday 08/08/14. I asked for a window seat but I couldn't get it. The food wasn't good at all. We both ordered fish and it was plane with no taste. The sizzling mushroom that I love was very oily. I was disappointed and regret going there for dinner. I will not go back to that location.

    When I arrived at my reservation time on a Saturday night they didn't show my reservation. After checking further they found my reservation had been made for the night before, Friday night. Without any hesitation whatsoever they said they could accommodate me and seated me and my husband immediately. We were there to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful 2 hours to ourselves and enjoyed one of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen.

    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.
