    Our server was polite and helpful. Our table location had a great view of the sunset and the New York skyline. As the sun sets, the restaurant gets a little dimmer, perfect for that romantic mood. Pictures outside on the terrace is a must and the food was delicious.

    It was my wife and I second visit and we enjoyed like it was our first time. We invited our friends out to dinner to celebrate - they're newlyweds. The service from the time we arrive until we left the restaurant was very much appreciated. Needless to say they also have a great view of the NYC skyline. The food was very tasty and they have a nice menu selection. We will forward to our next visit.

    I love this place. The bread is good; mixed drinks and wine fantastic; service great; views to die for. The food still needs a bit of work. We started with the soup combo, lobster bisque, crab, mango and avocado stack and coconut shrimp. All were really good; but the crab stack took the prize. We moved on to the Alaskan king crab, stuffed flounder, scallops and the salmon cooked on a board. The stuffed flounder was five stars. The salmon was quite smokey, but still really good. The Alaskan king crab was hit and miss. Some of the legs were perfect -- just pure, warm, delicious, perfectly cooked crab meat. But others were really cold, wet and salty as though they had been previously frozen. I just don't know. The scallops were okay.

    I brought my girlfriend to Chart House for her birthday, the waitress greeted us and wished her a happy birthday right away, and they had printed Happy 25th Birthday on the specials menu. They were so thoughtful and made me look great! Amazing food, ambiance and service. There isn't a bad seat anywhere in this place either, so don't feel bad if you don't get a window spot!

    Dined here for the Sunday brunch. It is a very complete offering, with salads, warming trays of various fish and chicken, carving stations of prime rib and roast pork. The dessert table had a large collection of cakes. The food was ok, about like you'd expect it to be. Nothing really stood out as great, likely because it had been prepared in advance and sitting in a steamer for an hour. The service from Al was really good. We had a water-front table, so the experience was very nice.

    we were celebrating our Sons 30th.. waiter (Nathan) somewhat obnoxious , then at the end he said very LOUD, "your gift cards were included in paying for the bill" .. he did not have to say that so loud for our party to hear we had gift cards to pay for half the meal. Very unprofessional. To work at the Chart House I would think you need class. He also kept telling us how hungry he was and wanted to eat our food... I then had to ask THREE times to please bring the complimentary cake/candle for my Son... You are lucky the food was good or I would never return or recommend this place.

    Chart house service/waiter was good. Food was average. Steak prime rib was 50% fat/ cartilidge. Thats not worth it for a 30 dollar cut of steak. The seafood my wife got was over seasoned with black pepper. Wasabi sause had not a hint of wasabi. The wine selection was good. The side a sizling mushroom came out cold? Make sure you reserve a seat with a view the booths are mood killers.

  • 5th Anniversary Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011VIP
    Dined on 9/19/2014
    The Chart House is among our favorite restaurant, we've been many times. We had a 9:15 reservation but were not seated until 10. We informed them that we had had our wedding reception there and were back for our 5th anniversary. We'd hoped for extra consideration but were seated directly behind the server station which blocked our view - the reason for selecting this venue. Having waited 45 minutes despite a reservation, we expected a decent table. Finally, We ordered the lava cake - something we always look forward to. Instead, they they brought out a "complimentary" ice cream cake! Our bill had a lava cake on it (which was removed), but we never received what we had ordered and the waiter didn't say a word about it - big disappointment.

    As usual, the food was nothing short of amazing. We've gotten used to not finding something that wasn't delicious, so I'm not going to harp on that. What set this dining experience apart was the service. From the personalized menus, to the personalized service, I've never been happier at a restaurant. Ever. It was our second anniversary, and I mentioned it in the reservation. When we got there, our menus read "The Weehawken Chart House wishes you a happy anniversary." The hostess wished us a happy anniversary on the way in, and on the way out. The waitress was attentive but unobtrusive. Making sure our needs were met, but allowing us to talk uninterrupted. I've been to Chart Houses before, and received good service, but this tops them all

    The ambience was nice and we had a nice view of the city despite not being directly in front of the window. The food was delicious although there was a long wait time in between the appetizer and the main course. The hot lava cake is worth ordering...amazingly decadent! The mixed drinks from the bar were not impressive...overpriced and watered down...one is better off ordering wine for the evening. The Riesling was very good! Although he was very friendly, our server was lacking at times and forgot to bring us some items we requested. That put a damper on our experience, especially since the restaurant was not that busy! Overall it was an enjoyable evening out.

    The Chart House at Weehawken has such an amazing view of the NYC skyline. That alone is worth a visit! The wait staff is friendly and well coordinated so that all our food was delivered promptly and hot/cold as requested. In particular, our prime rib and filet were cooked to perfection. We felt attended to, without being rushed. Definitely a place we will return to:)

    Great waiter, whose name I unfortunately forget! Trademark view--do ask for waterside or window-view table when entering, it's worth it, but even tables in center seemed fine. In warm weather, don't forget the outside patio. Also don't forget the excellent bar. While not inexpensive, presumably one could share an appetizer and get a salad for a reasonable cost. Sharing an entree is also presimably OK, as I didn't see a sharing fee on menu. Some things are only on the Gluten-free menu, so ask for that too.

    We dined here for our daughters 29th birthday. Everyone was so happy with their meal & whole experience at The Chart House. Our waiter, Jonathan was wonderful, very knowledgeable, professional yet friendly. Was very surprised to see "Happy Birthday to Sara" on our menus, an extra special touch that was very appreciated. Our other daughter is in the hospitality business and was very impressed with the way The Chart House operates. We will certainly be back to dine and celebrate again, probably for the next birthday! Coming from Morris County was a bit of a ride, but well worth it. Will highly recommend this restaurant. Our experience was wonderful; atmosphere, appetizers, meal, dessert, everyone & everything was perfect. Great night.

    Spent our 31st anniversary dinner at an old tried and true favorite. The Chart House knows how to win you every time. From a very pleasant greeting staff, to a fine bar staff, and bar experience, to an exceptional wait staff ( Lawrence was the best ). Oh, and the view is always a killer. Some dishes are better than others, but the food gets top marks as always. The" Oysters Rockefeller" are superb.
