    My husband and I were in Savannah to participate in the Savannah Children's Book Festival as authors in the Coastal Writers group. Although there were activities planned for us on the eve of the festival, my husband and I made sure that we squeezed in some time to dine at the Chart House. As usual, the food was delectable and the service was impeccable (many thanks to Ashley, our server). We never miss an opportunity to dine at the Chart House whenever we are in Savannah and this visit did not disappoint.

    Chart House in Savannah is one of my favorites, notably for their Oysters Rockefeller. I ordered the Oysters, Caesar Salad, Mixed seafood grill, and of course the chocolate lava cake... All very tasty! Our server was sweet as could be, but terrible. Everything was VERY slow, she kept forgetting things, we wouldn't see her for a while, and every time she poured a drink she would spill it on the floor. My uncle had to get up and find someone at one point to ask about our food. As I consider the Chart House more of a fine dining restaurant, I expected the service would be better. We had reservations at 6pm and did not leave the restaurant until almost 8:30 pm. I'm not sure if I'd go back for a full dinner again simply based on the service.

    Al ways have hat great meals at Chart. This was not. Had to send undercooked steak back twice.. they kept bringing the same steak back. The final time it was so badly cooked it looked like jerky. They took the meal off the bill...but that wasn't what was needed. They should have started over and done it right.

    We had heard of the Chart House but never bothered to find it until this past weekend. Very easy to make reservations online with my phone. After we checked into the Hyatt we were speaking with the concierge and asked for directions and she indicated that it was a couple of blocks away on River St. We arrived 15 minutes early and was seated immediately. From that point we had a terrific experience. Thank you very much for a beautiful evening.

    Usually this a pleasant experience, but the food, service, drinks and everything was bad. They have been great in the past as we have eaten here at least 10 times, but the last 2-3 visits have been mediocre. We are locals and always enjoyed Chart House (for the most part), but it's falling below average lately for the price and quality.

    We selected the Chart House to celebrate with school friends we'd not seen in over 30 years. The evening was perfect. We all enjoyed our table, the view, BeBe, the waitress, and of course, the food. The décor was fabulous with all the blue-green glass, art and carpets. I would love to visit again!

    We chose the restaurant for the view and the view from the patio was very nice. We thought the food was good but a bit overpriced compared to other restaurants in the area. We felt pressured to make our menu choices and the table was cleared before one of our party was finished. One of our appetizers was massive and better for sharing. Cannot comment on desert. As for a recommendation, the view was nice.

    I was disappointed with the chart house experience. Years ago, I used to frequent the chart house in ny and it had a great location on the Hudson River. The ambiance was brighter and cheerful with a gorgeous view. I remember the food being better too. While the design of the savannah restaurant was beautiful and interesting, the night time view was boring and the food seemed overly buttery (tilapia and chowder). The restaurant was also on the dark side, but didnt feel romantic. Maybe I'm being unfair because I'm comparing this to a chart house that shut down and was so different. Also, I may have ordered the "wrong" dish for me, so I would still recommend it.

    My wife and celebrated our 40th Anniversary on August 3rd and she celebrated her 64th birthday in ambiance suitable for the occasion. I had been to the restaurant many years ago and always remembered the experience. We live in Summerville, SC (By way of Philadelphia, PA) and drove in from Summerville for the late (dare I say romantic) dinner. I was really trying to show her a place where I knew she would have a good time. You guys presented her (and me) with the "Wow" factor. She was blown away (not an easy task). incidentally, there were not enough stars to express how delicious the dinners were. kudos to the staff for an excellent dinner.

    We made a reservation, arrived a few minutes early and were seated within 5 minutes. All good. We were seated at our table and that was it. There were three waitresses in our immediate area, none of them brought water, bread, even acknowledged us in ay way at all. After 15 minutes we left. I do not know what the food is like since we never got to try it. We went down the street to Moon River Brewing, were the service was very good and so was the food.

    A very enjoyable dining experience on all levels. The atmosphere is laid back and comfortable, our service was excellent, the entire staff pleasant and accommodating, and although a bit on the pricy side, was delicious, beautifully prepared and presented. Overall we had a very, very nice experience at CH. BTW - their chocolate molten-style cake dessert alone may be worth whatever the cost!!! Amazing. Overall a great evening.

    The view of the Savannah River and the Talmadge Bridge is wonderful. We sat outdoors and our waiter was wonderful. I have had better food at the Chart House in previous visits. We had appetizers, wine, meal and dessert. The calamari & friends was very good, the wine was pretty good as well, the key lime pie was the best ever; however, the shrimp served was small (unlike my other visits) and the roasted vegetables were soggy and tasted spoiled. I could not eat them. My date enjoyed his fish but was not told it was going to be blacken (not on the menu and the waiter did not ask if he wanted it blacken). I usually go to the Chart House whenever I am in Savannah but will look for another fine dining spot.

    Very friendly and great service. While it was an expensive restaurant it offered a lot of choices ways to stretch how you used your money. The only real gripe I had was that I was not expecting my shrimp to be so heavily fried. We dined outside on a Thursday so it wasn't that busy. There was a large crowd at the bar when we'd arrived, but that didn't affect the promptness of service.

    My boyfriend and I went to lunch for our anniversary. We were extremely excited about trying out this restaurant and ended up walking out extremely disappointed. The hostess was rude. The server was rude. I would give his name but he never introduced himself. The atmosphere just isn't friendly. Then we paid with two $25 gift cards. Our tab was only $35 and even though the server didn't deserve a penny as a tip, I gave him both gift cards and told him to keep the remaining $15. He chased us out of the restaurant saying one of the gift cards didn't work. After coming in and waiting for them to type it in, instead of apologizing, he walked over and told us we could leave. I will never return or recommend this restaurant.
