    One again, we enjoyed our dining experience at the Chart House! We began with a cocktail in the lounge, proceeded by a delicious dinner. Our server was attentive and graciously explained the menu offerings. Our food was prepared as requested to accommodate our dietary restrictions! We had the added pleasure of dining with a spectacular view of Manhattan across the Hudson River! The ambiance was perfect! It was an delightful evening and we plan on returning in the near future!

    The place is beautiful and so is the view of the water and city, but the service was a let down. We waited close to ten minutes to be greeted for a drink order. We asked a back waiter for knives at one point because we did not have any for our entrees; this seemed to annoy him and when he brought them over he reached right in front of me to the point his sleeve was touching my nose. This is incredibly rude. We ordered a bottle of wine and asked the manger to check on it for us since we were halfway through our entrees already before it came. He got it for us, but either does not know proper wine service or did not think we would know the difference. Food was great, but I wouldn't go back. I feel for the price point, service was sub-par.

    Service was very good, being there few times but was disappointed bc we have to keep asking for the proper cutlery, did not put the proper steak knife and fish knifes. It should be on the table after the order being placed instead ask for it few times. The rest was very good

    This was our second experience at The Chart House. The first time was perfect - not impressed with my 2nd visit. The food was not hot, presentation was not spectacular-mashed potatoes were lukewarm and soupy - the scallops were small and the seasoning was not flavorful. I would recommend this restaurant again but would stick to beef as my choice for the entree.

    Service was excellent The food was priced right and also excellent. It is a standard Chart House menu with daily specials. Good variety and cooked to our taste. The view of Manhatten is superb!!! Very busy, but not overly noise. Valet parking available and saves a potential long walk from the huge parking lot.

    I have eaten here before with friends, but this time I took my fiance for our anniversary. We arrived early for our reservation so we were shown to the bar area for some happy hour specials. The mango mojito and calamari were great and less than half off their original prices. We then sat outside for dinner. The view of the NYC skyline really made this experience even nicer. My fiancé loved her coconut shrimp dinner, and overall was very pleased with her experience here. Our server José was fantastic by the way. Very knowledgeable of the menu, polite, and accommodating. We'll definitely be back!

    Very powerful air conditioning made up freeze. We were soooooo cold. When we were finished with our meal we could not wait to leave. That is how cold we were. I am not a picky complaining type, and able to roll with the punches, but this was really cold. Everything else was great. I said to my partner that I would return but in the winter when the air conditioning was not in use.

    We come to the Chart House yearly, on average, to celebrate someone's birthday or anniversary. I always request a window table, even if it means having to wait a bit. When we wait in the bar, or on the deck outside the bar, we can have appetizers and drinks and still have a great view. The food is wonderful, but we really come for the view of the Hudson River and of Manhattan. We have seen (on different visits) ferry boats, cruise ships, day-liners, water skiers, paddle boarders, helicopters, hot air balloons, spectacular lightning, various colored lights on the Empire State Building, among other things. The service is friendly but professional, and the seafood is to die for. Not cheap! But great.

    We took our Aunt to the Chart House to celebrate her 75th Birthday. She was blown away! We were ushered to the window seats and the view was breathtaking. It was an 8pm reservation and the city lights were shining bright. We had a perfect view of the Empire State Building and the ocean! The menus came and my Aunt Ruth starting smiling.... the menus were personalized wishing her a Happy Birthday!!!!!! WOW!!! If you are looking for a place to celebrate or for a romantic dinner with delicious food - don't skip the Chart House. Great service from beginning to end.

    We, me and my wife, visited the Chart House to celebrate my wife's birthday. They were gracious to present us a table with a view of the NYC skyline. The blackened fish entrees that they provide are some of the best among the options. I would have loved a quieter ambiance, but I suppose that all others were enjoying their time at the place as well. Would highly recommend others to visit.

    Of all the Chart House/Landry properties. Chart House, Weehawkin has to rated as #1 for service, food and scenic view. We found it to one of the most enjoyable dining experiences that we have ever had. Celebrating out 40th wedding anniversary, we enjoyed every minute of our dining at the Chart House. Our server was most helpful with suggestions to our chioces and was very friendly and professional. The view is breath taking at sunset.( you are right on the water looking at the Manhattan skyline.). Very relaxing. No rush at all....

    I had been to The Chart House in the past but my boyfriend had never been. I made reservations for our anniversary dinner and it was truly a great experience. The only hiccup we had was when we first arrived we asked for a window seat and they told us it was an extra 40 minutes. We went over by the bar to wait for our table and the bartenders did not acknowledge us at all. Two parties came after us and they were served before us. It wasn't until I attempted to get the bartender's attention that was in front of me that another bartender notice me from the other side and attended to us. This made me a bit upset but I didn't allow this experience to ruin the night for us. I must say our table server Kristopher was great!
