    I went to the Chart House to celebrate the birthday of an old friend, it was a Saturday night and the place was packed. We had a 10:45pm reservation and were seated promptly, everything from the food to the wine was superb. At the end of the meal, my friend took care of the check with cash but had asked the server if there wasn't an ATM near by so he can get additional funds to cover the tip; She said "No, there isn't". As we were getting ready to leave, the server confronted him about not leaving a tip and said in a very snarky and sarcastic tone "I noticed there wasn't a gratuity included but I understand as this is the nature of my business, have a good evening." She walked away and I overheard her say loudly to her cohorts "Great, now I can pay for college!" I've dined at this establishment and many others before and had never been spoken to in that fashion ever. Just as we pulled out of the parking lot, there was a Chase ATM in the plaza next to Houlihans. I would've gladly went back to tip the server accordingly but her attitude made me think twice. I will be calling the restaurant to speak to the manager about this matter, I completely understand that servers depend on their tips but the server should also understand that things happen.

    The bar scene was great! It was crowded yet, we were able to find a couple of seats to have a drink before sitting down to dinner near the window with the beautiful NYC night time skyline. Had the hummus and also a shrimp with avocado for apps which was delicious. Main course was Shrimp linguini with artichoke and my date had chilean sea bass also very good. Service was very good. Waiter was very attentive and knowledgable about the dishes. I would definitely recommend!

    I took my wife for her birthday. She is a big seafood lover. I on the other hand, do not enjoy it. As the menu is minimal, it gives those of us who like steak a few good options. Everything I ate was great. The Filet Mignon was cooked perfect, and my wife's scallops were phenomenal. Great view, great food, and excellent service! Definitely recommend.

    Sur les conseils avisés d'un ami, j'ai diné au Chart House à l'occasion de mon anniversaire. L'accueil a été très chaleureux, le personnel très attentionné (hôtesse, serveur...) Lors de ma réservation j'avais demandé une table avec vue dégagée "window table" et l’hôtesse a accédé à ma demande. Trop contente. Les cocktails, le diner étaient très très bons, portions généreuses (version US!) je n'ai pas pu finir The cherry on the cake : mon menu avait été personnalisé avec une inscription à mon intention et accompagné d'une photo détaillée de la Skyline avec le nom des différentes tours. Le top Bref je recommande vraiment l'endroit pour un diner inoubliable ! Un grand merci à toute l'équipe.

    We celebrated our son's 18th birthday on Sunday evening. I had requested for the window seat but was a little disappointed that we didn't get it (understandable). However, where we sat the view was still spectacular. We did not wait that long before we were seated. Our waiter, Matt, was very friendly and attentive to our needs. Food was decent; a little pricey for what you got. Waited a little long for the signature Lava cake despite pre-ordering. Over all, it was a wonderful dinning experience. Thanks Matt!!

    I love the Philadelphia location. Went there twice and had the experience I expected at Weehawken. Sadly not the same. Valet Parking stood around while I was stuck behind another car, I had to be proactive in finding a solution. Requested window seat for a 6:15 Sunday reservation, it was given to someone who came in after me. Food was okay, I've had better at lower end resturants. I'll go back but not to Weehawken location.

    We took a party of 10 for dinner before the Lion King on Broadway. The waiters, Will and Josh, were outstanding! They were able to take our orders and get them delivered very quickly with only one request to do so. I didn't have to remind them at all. They were very accommodating. They sat us in front of this huge window which was the back of the restaurant facing the New York sky line...simply beautiful. The food was outstanding. My cell phone had died to and they were happy to charge it for me. Just an overall outstanding evening with the Chart House!

    My husband and I went to Chart House to celebrate a special anniversary. The food was fabulous, service outstanding and the view breathtaking. My only constructive criticism would be that the door in the bar area be locked on cold, windy and rainy nights. The climate in the bar was comfortable until someone opened the door to go outside. My husband and I were sitting on the soft chairs under the TV, and felt the cold breeze. There are two tables on either side of this door, who probably felt the breeze more than we did. We waited in the bar area an hour, as we requested a window seat. When were were directed to a table in the dining room, away from the bar, we were very pleased. Highly recommend Chart House for special occasions!
