Diner Reviews
  • "I had eaten at the Chart House a few times in the past, primarily for business dinners. This time I chose it to entertain friends from overseas. My expectation were high, based on past experience, but they were exceeded, thanks largely to the outstanding and entertaining waiter who served us. He knew the menu and wine list so well, it blew me away, as well as my guests. The entrees we choose were excellent in quality and presentation, and we never felt rushed, thus enjoyed a great relaxing dinner that was 3 hours long. Fantastic experience!"

  • "Our experience was nothing positive. When we arrived we asked to be seated outside and were rudely told there was a large party already outside. Indoor seating was fine except it was freezing cold. Too much air conditioning! Food was way over priced and our waiter was not at all knowledgable. What we did order we ate because we were paying for it but it was nothing special. The appetizers were ok. Our prime rib was dry and the potatoes lacked moisture too. Very negative experience and we would never recommend this restaurant. Disappointing as this is supposed to be a high end restaurant. We won't be back!"

  • "The food and ambience was terrific, the service not so good. I would definitely recommend the Chart House and hope nobody had the same waiter as we did."

  • "They are primarily a seafood house, and everyone in our party of 3 ordered accordingly. My grilled seafood sampler was great and plenty to eat. Our host for the evening ordered the scallops, which looked great but there were only 4 on the plate. My husband order the King Salmon, which he said tasted great but was a small potion, maybe I 'm guessing 4 oz., not commenery with the price of $35. The service was good, but we were there late 8 PM on a week night. The salad bar was very nice. Good place for a special occasion."

  • "Chart house is one of the best seafood restaurants around Phoenix. I forgot how slow the service was when I made reservations to eat there to celebrate a family birthday. Great food!"

  • "Save you money and go else where. When we got there we where seated right away but it took about ten min for anyone to come to our table just to pour a glass of water. The bread arrived after the appraisers. When the main course arrived ...it was cold. Also, the steak tasted like like they had just cooked it on a burnt grill top. The crab legs where no better (cold). They remade the steak but at this point the meal was a disaster. This was the most dis functional dinner staff I have ever seen. Did I mention they where not busy....and it was a Friday night. Guess that should have been my first clue. Save your money, go else where."

  • "We always enjoy the Chart House, but find it a little pricey for everyday dinners. However, when they come up with a special in our e-mail in box it's a sure winner. This time salad (or appetizer,) main course (we had prime rib,) and dessert for $30. Plus we had $25 credit from our Landry's gift card. And sunset over Camelback Mountain and a Scottsdale lake view makes it the perfect setting."

  • "Although the food was good and the wait staff was polite and efficient, the initial experience with the hostess was so dysfunctional that we cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone."

  • "Service was a failure to long of wait to order, when order did arrive not complete and read that was ordered before meal came after dinner. Very disappointed. Will think twice next time. Waitress kept complaining how busy she was"
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "If you're looking for seafood, look elsewhere. Nice table, beautiful view. Wait for soup - 20 minutes. Requested bread. Overheard waiter tell others that a private event was slamming the kitchen and there might be a wait. At that time evening took a nose dive. Server disappeared for 30 minutes. Waived down busboy...requested water...buns...dinner? After an hour wait, dinner appeared. Son enjoyed chicken. I did NOT enjoy my 1/4" thick slice of swordfish. Wife ordered yellowfin ahi tuna - almost the most expensive fish on the menu - She cooks it better at home. Waiter seemed insulted that she left most of it behind...then made us wait 15 minutes for him to run my card. Assume my tip reflected our disappointment in food AND service."

  • "One observation. We did not appreciate our hostess (age wise a more mature woman) not looking at us when speaking to us. She refused eye contact when spoken to. This is rude and say's little of her culture as representing her restaurant. Her deference to caucasians as we were not was TO OBVIOUS. Scotsdale is an upscale side of town. It was apparent to us and her group of waiters and waitresses as they "clammed up" as they saw my reaction to her suggestion and my response which was adamant and extremely firm as she INSISTENTLY did not want to sit us and we having a reservation. She wanted us to wait for our third party arrival. I wanted to be seated as I was with my one of my guests. And on my insistence was finally seated."
    Dined on 3/20/2014
  • "For a restaurant that specializes in seafood, the fish was just ok. My friend had a steak which was over cooked. Mashed potatoes were served with my fish, which were tasteless and runny. I am glad I tried it, but save your money."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "Although we had an excellent server, he was run off his feet with way too many tables to serve appropriately. And even though we had a reservation we waited 25 minutes for a table. We will not return."

  • "The Chart House was a great dining experience. It was my wife's birthday and they had a lot of nice little touches. They had a full bar and the food was excellent. We enjoyed the atmosphere and could have eaten outside if we had wanted. The sunset on the lake was very nice. I made points with my wife!!!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Waiter was not knowledgeable about wine list, getting coffee took a magician because bar had coffee, yet waiter was responsible for making decaf espresso. We had much better dinner the next night at Los Olivos for less than half the price."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "Needed an exciting night out and the Chart House delivered. Food was excellent, view grand. Although pleasant, our waiter did seem a bit rushed, but as we were not in any hurry, that was not a problem. Have dined at Chart House (s) for over 40 years and have never been disappointed. Glad to have found one in my backyard."

  • "John the bartender was great and had a good attitude. I asked for Absolute Citron and it was not available. Another person asked for it also so that needs to be changed on the bar menu. I then ordered a Tanquary and tonic and could not drink it. The Tonic in the hose was so flat it could not be consumed. I asked John to fix it and he could not so I ended up with a bottle of wine. The rest of our experience was that the food service and waiter was excellent!!! The place it too nice to have a bar that is not stocked well so get with it and fix the situation."

  • "This restaurant is terrific for special occasions like birthdays & anniversaries. The view at sunset is unmatched and the food is consistently delicious. Server lacked personality - could have been friendlier and more attentive, since we were celebrating a birthday. For the second time in three weeks they didn't cook our prime rib the way we wanted it on the first try. What is so hard about 'medium well'?"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "My seafood mixed grill was all over cooked and as a result, dry. Could not finish, even though hungry. Server was nice but not attentive. Wonderful atmosphere and view. But for the price, the food was disappointing."

  • "My parents always like to celebrate my birthday at the Chart House. The mahi was great and the dessert very good and more reasonably priced than similar places of its caliber. I do visit other times, too."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "After being blown away by the amazing view of the lake and mountain, expectations for the food and service were quite high. Was not approached by any wait staff for at least 15 minutes. Drink orders were few and far between due to the lack of service. The waiter we had was quite friendly and did apologize for wait times, however provide no excuse why it continued throughout the evening. Food was downright dry and devoid of any salt. It also took 45 minutes to get our food. We ended up getting one of the dinners knocked off our tab which was fine, but unfortunately with the amount of great restaurants in Scottsdale, we doubt we will return. It may just have been an off night based on all of the other positive reviews."

  • "The Chart House has a good variety of menu items with fresh seafood options. All the menu items our table of six enjoyed were extremely delicious. The Seared Ahi Tuna was done perfect and served over garlic mashed potatoes. The steak special was cooked to order. Our server was knowledgeable on all the menu items and his recommendations on food choices was very helpful. It's a very nice restaurant if you want to celebrate a special event."

  • "We live in Sedona, AZ, but the Chart House in Scottsdale, AZ is one of the special restaurants we like to visit when we are in the area. The views of the lake, the water fowl and the sunsets are the perfect beginning to a romantic dinner. The food is very well prepared and presented. The service is generally very good to excellent. The Chart house is one of those little known secrets that you will definitely enjoy.."

  • "Food was OK but not worth the money! Salad bar variety and quality not worth $16.00 for sure! Service was good but we were disappointed for not printing our name on the menu like they used to do for special occasions in the past! Not sure if we go there any more!"
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "On our last night in Scottsdale we decided to celebrate the end of out two week vacation at the Chart House. What a great decision on our part. We had a window table overlooking the lake which enable us to watch the setting sun. The food was the best we experienced during our entire visit. The only down side was that our waitress was a little too talkative."
