    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!

    My wife and I visit the Chart House in Scottsdale 4-6 times a year. 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.

    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.

    The restaurant was not busy yet service was so slow. Our waiter just stood there looking around and every course took forever. Then we were overcharge for the glass of wine. The food was okay, not great but the waiting time was just horrendous. Sorry but we will not be visiting Chart House again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010

    Had a reservation but had to wait---even with many empty tables. Kept going downhill from there. Service was robotic and slow. When food finally came it was over cooked and dry---too long under the heat lamp. Didn't have a chance to say anything as waiter only came back with the check. When ordering our RW Prefix we told him we would be taking our desserts to go. He never brought them and when we did finally get the check, with nothing having been cleared from the table, we just wanted out of there. Will not be returning or recommending.

    My date & I were very disappointed. We ordered our food from the restaurant week menu. The entree came before the salad & soup. the waiter left the entrees on the table for a good 5 minutes before returning to tell us they were for another table. When the starters finally were delivered my date's clam chowder didn't have many clams in it. 2 glasses of wind for $18.00. My 2nd glass of wine wasn't even 1/2 filled. We were very disappointed.

    We really enjoyed our evening. Service was wonderful. We had a great table, nice view. We went there to have seafood. As former New Englanders, we are always on the lookout for great seafood - hard to find in Arizona! We loved the selections available but have just one suggestion - don't overcook the fish! The crab in the crab cakes was wonderful but we also had halibut that was bone dry. Had they taken it off the flame just a minute or two sooner, it would have been so much better. Other than that we greatly enjoyed our evening!

    It was just ok for me. The waiter seemed very nervous, he disappeared for about 10 minutes and we had to ask another server for our friends drink that we were waiting for. The lobster bisque was just ok, I've had much better. I had the ahi tuna, I had much better than this also. For being known for their seafood, not soo much. I would not go back unfortunately. Just wasn't somewhere that pops out for us.

    Thought that I would try this restaurant location a second time. Food was okay, but not great, especially for the price. I'll stick with Mastro's Ocean Club from now on. Also, took a look at the salad bar, but decided against it, as it was not re-stocked or freshened adequately. My later reservation at 8:00 p.m. should not have been an issue regarding this, but I think it was. The wine selection is wonderful however. Many good choices to choose from.

    Hard upsell and low-end restaurant level servers create a real disconnect with the attempt at remaining a fine dining restaurant - and ridiculously high prices for what they deliver. Went for a special occasion and really a disappointment. Would be great if a nice local restaurant or chain took over this beautiful location.

    We selected Chart House for a family birthday dinner and they did not disappoint. Our group had vegans, vegetarians, non seafood eaters and children but the salad bar and varied menu accommodated everyone. They even printed a personalized birthday greeting at the top of the menu. Although the food itself is good but not great, this was the perfect place for our special occasion dinner.
