    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.

    We were last night celebrating a birthday. The view here is fantastic but the food lacks the 4 star mark, easy to tell that seafood wasn't fresh. We had the crab cake app the steak and scallops. They weren't bad, but just ok, no special taste, didn't smell fresh, smth you would want from a place like this. I've been to other locations of Chart and the one in Old Town Alexandria, VA is my favorite. But the combination of view, service and food was a good experience. Props at Alex, our server, he did a great job.

    I guess my review won't be too different from others. The views are spectacular! The first time I came to this restaurant was years ago for my cousin's sweet 16th. I had a chance to see the view and I have never looked back. This has been the 3rd time I've been to the actual restaurant. The food always deserves a 5 oit of 5, ive never been disappointed. The only reason I gave the restaurant a 4 out of 5 was being of the service. Our server was not catering and was rude and condescending. Although, it wasn't enough to ruin our night, he made us feel very guilty and uncomfortable. Other than that I will definitely come back and hope for another waiter!

    A place this nice should have an elegant dress code. Service, by Matthew, was great as he knows the difference between being attentive and hovering. For a late hazy afternoon, the Manhattan skyscape was still spectacular. The four of us will return for more experimenting with the signature cocktail menu. A Bold Manhattan made with Maker’s Mark whiskey and a regular Manhattan with bar tender’s choice of whiskey tied for top honours. Of the four entrees, the crab cakes were the standout, though we were all quite satisfied with our choices. The only thing missing here is live music by a pianist, jazz trio or even classical chamber music.

    This visit was not my first time at the Chart House. I wanted a friend of mine to experience this type of fine dining. She thought the restaurant was lovely, the food great and will probably bring some of her other friends here. I usually bring my family to the Chart House on special occasions for example, birthdays, father's day, special days of "Thank You" The service is always good and the servers have always been very friendly each time I have been here. This was the first time I came for lunch, I usually come for dinner. The visit was very nice. Thank you.

    My medium rare steak was definitely overcooked, not much pink in the middle, and the lobster tail was also overcooked. So, for food at these prices, I would recommend another steakhouse. But the view was great and it was a great place for a birthday meal.

    Went on a Sunday evening and the place was busy. I have been going to CH for years and was the Maitre'D there for 2 years when it first opened. The Executive Chef and Manager remain the same and the service is still great. The food was enjoyable/very good but not as memorable as years ago. We started with the crab, avocado stack and it was very good, my boyfriend had the chilean sea bass which was a very small portion (I expect smaller fish portions, good quality fish is expensive, however this was beyond small, looked like 3 ounces maybe). I had a chopped salad which was very good. Can't beat the view of course... Great night overall

    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.
