    We celebrated my wife's 60th Birthday at the Chart House. Everything was wonderful and they made our evening very special. From excellent drinks and exquisite food to friendly knowledgable servers. They even customized our menus in honor of our special occasion with a Happy Birthday at the top. Very nice. The views are magnificent as well. It's a waterfront restaurant with ducks and geese gliding by all evening. Thank you Chart House for a memorable event evening.

    We came early for dinner on Friday night but were seated promptly. Our server was very nice and checked on us often but the food was slow in coming all evening. I asked for no onions in my chopped salad but they were there anyway. I didn't dare send it back. No telling how long I would have to wait for a replacement. Same thing with my overcooked fish. Maybe it would be better on a slower day.

    I was not at all disappointed to dine at the Scottsdale Chart House. Had been to many other Chart House restaurants across the country, but somehow they do things better than other chain restaurants. With such a great view one may have thought that would give them excuse to not have service and food quality to match, but everything was very good. As a member of Landry's Select Club, we had personalized menus, which was a nice touch. Food pacing was very good--we'd let our server know that we had a fixed time due to another committment, and he kept things moving along well--not rushed but not late, either. Would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes seafood (a few meat options for those so inclined) and plan to return

    Everything really went quite well. One thing is that after we were seated, no one came around for at least 10 minutes--I think they could not figure out who was our waiter. When we finally received one, we had another one 2 minutes after wanting to wait on us. I think they were somewhat disorganized. But it was wonderful again--the salad bar, food, drink.......we are coming back soon.

    We expected a peaceful meal with outstanding food, Little did we know that salesmanship was the routine of the wait staff. From the $60 bottle of recommended YOU GOT TO TRY THIS Wine, to the SINGLE CRAB CAKE, tasteless, the stuffed Tilapia which was a piece undercooked almost raw (maybe sushi lovers would like this one) The sauce on the Blood Orange Salmon was ok, but fish was quite dry and tasteless. Fish seemed old.. I must say I should have stuck to my belief that good fish comes from NEAR OCEAN LOCATIONS, Monterey California, San Francisco, Boston..

    The Chart House can be hit or miss as far as service is concerned. We had a good experience this time which is a nice plus to the good food and ambiance they provide. This place is a bit retro but they keep it up well. The only issue we had was early on in the lounge. We had to compete with a wedding party which was large and boisterous, but after they cleared out for dinner, it was very comfortable. We had a great window table and our waitress was unobtrusive but helpful.

    Went for dinner for the first time after it became a Landry's and we're very, very happy with everything. The spinach salad was outstanding. The grilled salmon and the scallops were perfect. Joe, our server was rather new he said but he must be a quick learner because his service was flawless for us. Will return again next week and hopefully do it all over again.

    We have always been very impressed with the ambiance, décor and food at the Chart House. This time, however, the service was a bit lacking. We never received the bread we asked for until we asked again, and it arrived after my husband had almost finished his salad. We didn't feel that we received the usual attention to detail (crumbing the table, refilling water glasses quickly, etc.) that we have received before. When I made the reservation I told them that we were celebrating our 30th anniversary. We are Landry's Select Club members and I expected a little something extra, like a cupcake to share or something. The note at the top of our menu was a nice touch, though.

    This was the worst dining experience I've had in a really long time. I already wrote a long detailed review on yelp so I'll keep this one short. Drinks took forever (15 minutes) to come out and when they did, one was wrong. Prime Rib that was brought wasn't even close to the temperature I ordered. I ordered medium rare and received well done. Service was subpar since the server was the only one left one with several tables. Everything was just terrible that night.

    Besides the very good prime rib and chicken marsala, the soup and the excellent mud pie and creme brulee were excellent choices for their restaurant week menu. We had a lovely window view out over the lake with the lights twinkling, adding to the feeling of a special occasion. We will definitely return!

We live in Sedona, Arizona, but spend a few long weekends in Scottsdale The Chart House is always on our list of restaurants to visit. The view is always fantastic. The staff is courteous and friendly. The service is great. The food is very good. We think it is a wonderful way to spend an evening.

    This was not our first visit, but will be the last, at least for awhile. We were wanting something different this time (we normally select seafood) and the menu they offered due to Restaurant Week was quite appealing. Once we chose to order off this menu however, the waiter basically dismissed us as not even being there. I spoke with a manager this week and although he apologized for the poor service, the only other thing he offered was to put a note in our record to never seat us in this waiters section again. Really? That's it? If there is a next time, I think we'll sit in the bar.

    We went here for restaurant week. Our server was great, he was very helpful and entertaining, we really liked him. Unfortunately their AC was broken when we were there so it was miserably hot. We were both sweating through our clothes and uncomfortable the whole time. We had a great table that was in the corner overlooking the lake, the view was gorgeous. Being surrounded by windows, made our date night awkward as we could hear the two other groups sitting in the same room as us very loudly and echo-y. One was going over the details of his nasty divorce and custody battle and the other was a table of two couples that were loud and a little vulgar at times. We both just wanted to hurry up and leave due to the heat and noise.

    I have dined at many Chart House restaurants across the country and they were all consistently good in regards to location, ambiance, food, and service. Unfortunately, this was not the birthday experience I had hoped for with my family. The hostess made us wait over 25 minutes for a reservation (Landrys VIP) even though the restaurant was empty. She was very unprofessional and didn't have a care in the world for me or the other groups waiting. The main server attempted to do a better job but I could easily overhear hear and other waiters and staff complaining about the customers near the salad area. Again, extremely unprofessional. I have always had great experiences at Chart House but this was a major let down esp on a day of celebration

    My first visit to chart house, recommended by my sister. I had the seafood grill and my daughter had the seared scampi. Both were delicious. Our server anticipayed our every need. We also had the molten lava cake for dessert. It was very good. My only tiny suggestion would be to offer the dessert menu to look at before the lava cake is offered. While it was nice to know that the cake would take 40 minutes to prepare so we ordered it before we received our dinner, we did not see what else may have been available. I will definitely return. A beautiful atmosphere.
