    The Chart House made sure my lady had a memorable birthday dinner. They even personalized her menu and all the staff that saw her greeted her with a "Happy Birthday". As for the food, I had the short ribs w/mashed potatoes, which was delicious. The appetizers though... Duck confit spring rolls are excellent, as is the coconut shrimp. Food is moderately pricy, but worth it and has instantly become one of my favorites

    This was our second visit. We wanted to bring our family. The atmosphere was great. However, my food was not good. I ordered the stuffed flounder which I had before and it was great. This time it was burnt and crispy. The knife would not cut it. I sent it back. It was brought out by the manager. This time is was purely white and uncooked. I accepted it to avoid sending it back a second time. I was not pleased at all.

    I have previously been to the Chart House for a Wedding and thought the food and view was great. This was my first time actually having dinner at the venue and I thought our waiter was fantastic. She had great knowledge of the menu and her customer service was outstanding. To top it all off, the window view of the New York City Skyline was magnificent. I am absolutely coming back in the near future.

    The most amazing thing about the Chart House is the view - nothing else is amazing but is all pretty good. Long wait for table inspite of reservaton. One hour wait for window table. Drinks weak but OK, food good, desserts good. Service pleasant. A very good place to take out of town guest if you want to impress them - not a very intimate everyday place.

    The wait for our table view was well worth the time, a beautiful Friday evening over looking the Hudson. The food was very good however we were disappointed with the lava cake and coffee. The cake was not hot as the chocolate did not flow and the ice cream did not melt. In addition, the coffee had coffee grinds at the bottom of the mug :(. The manager handled the situation and was very accommodating in resolving our dissatisfaction.

    I have been frequenting the Chart House in Weehawken since they opened for family special occasions. This time we celebrated a Birthday with 7 people, the wonderful experience began with a cocktail at the bar, then the Maitre D was extremely personable and very helpful. We sat in a booth with an awesome view of mid-town NYC!! Our waiter was very professional and knowledgeable, he handled the younger family members with the same respect and patience as the adults. The food is always excellent and the fall specials were very nice additions to the standard menu, we shared several appetizers and after our main course, we also shared several different deserts. Thanks to the entire staff, you have a great team!!

    Chart House has the most attentive service. From the hotesses that gave us the best seat in the house- the view of tge NYC skyline was incredible-and a personalized specials menu titled "Happy 50th Birthday" to our waiter, Kyle, who insisted we have dessert by bringing us a large "ice cream cake" on the house, to the managers asking us how our night was going. The food was, of course, excellent and the drinks were top-notch. It was a great experience.

    I consider dinner during sunset at the Weehawken Charthouse a must do for any friends visiting Manhattan. Take the beautiful 7 minute ferry ride to a beautiful restaurant with stunning view, great food, good drinks, exemplary service. And everyone -- whether from Los Angeles or Italy have been appropriately impressed. We love it here so much we had our wedding rehearsal dinner here! Need I say more?

    The location of the restaurant is the best feature of this restaurant. Try to ask for a table by the window when reserving. We did not ask when making reservation but the hostess offer it with a half hour wait. For a seafood restaurant, it did not offer a good menu. However, the food was great. My wife had the CHilean sea bass and it was very well prepared. I had a grilled grouper with olive oil. Unexpectedly, it came out with sauce on top of the fish but after taking a bite, it was delicious. The restaurant did not have a great wine list for my taste. Our server was good but she was very busy. It seems no one else helped her. We had finished our appetizers and the plates were with us for a while. Overall, it was good experience.

    I was extremely disappointed with the Sunday Brunch. The hostess gave us the worst possible seat - one with no shade on a very sunny day. We were boiling. My father told the waiter that the coffee tasted like dishwater and the waiter just shrugged. The food itself was mediocre. In order to go outside and take a look at the NYC skyline you had to go out the front and wind your way to the back through tables because the doors leading directly to the veranda were closed. All in all an unpleasant day.

    Our waitress was friendly and extremely attentive. She made sure that everything was perfect for our anniversary dinner and made our visit the most enjoyable of all the times we have been there. We will be going back again on 10/18 and I hope we are able to have her as our waitress again. Served us with a smile and returned to the table many times but not too many to be sure we didn't need anything. Food was outstanding and plentiful. My favorite restaurant of all that we have been too and I will continue to be a patron for as long as the service and food remain this outstanding. Of course the view is breathtaking and adds to the romantic feel of the restaurant.

    I was several times before at the Chart House in Weehawken and was never disappointed. As it was my friends birthday I have asked for a table at the window so that we could enjoy the fantastic view to Manhattan and they were able to provide us this table. The waiter was really nice. The food was good, though I remembered it to be a bit better in the past. Nevertheless and was a good value for money and when the dessert arrived they had even written "Happy Birthday" on my friends plate. So as the view is unbeatable, I would always go again. If you are staying in Manhattan and planning to go to the Chart House, I would recommend you to take the ferry which is a lot cheaper and quicker than to go there by taxi.

    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.
