    The Chart House Tampa is the perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine while overlooking the sunset, on the patio or indoors. They offer a great appetizers menu and drink specials daily. My girlfriends and I always enjoy coming here for a late afternoon snack and/or drinks.

    Beautiful restaurant and location. I had a kale and roasted butternut squash salad that was excellent followed by macadamia crusted mahi which was also very good. My fiance had snapper topped with crab which was not so good - the snapper was dry. Our server was totally oblivious. She seemed to disconnect as soon as we declined appetizers and cocktails. Then there was the sales pitch for the preferred customer card that she neglected to mention the $25 charge for until AFTER I asked her if there was a fee associated with it (I had already heard the pitch from a different server at another table). It was disappointing to spend what we did for dinner to have one poorly prepared entree and miss personality as a server.

    We went for Sunday brunch on one of our first great weather days of the fall. Sat outside on the water. Fantastic. Food and service very good. One thing I must mention is the hostess. She was a tall girl with dark hair. She was amazing. Very welcoming, friendly and informative. The company is lucky to have her. She was cheerful with all guests. Nice to see some customer service for a change. Keep up the good work.

    Wine (by the glass) offerings were marginal- do not order the Snapdragon Cab! The lobster rolls were pretty but I didn't see or taste much lobster. I ordered the seafood medley main course and was disappointed. For $34 I got a tiny, thin piece of salmon, 3 small sprimp and a too salty crab cake. My date had to order 3 times to get a basic beer in a bottle, thought I do think he enjoyed his yellow fin tuna. The server as cheery but she pumped a Landry's Club membership hard- a would be 'extra' $25 to the tab if we accepted. All told, I think I will try a different Tampa Bay Seafood resturant next time.

    Food served lukewarm. Pasta sauce (pomodoro) was so bland it was tasteless, un-identifyable. Parmesan encrusted shrimp so dry they either had been laying under a warming lamp for hours or were leftover from day(s) before. Overall, a most disappointing dinner.

    The dinner was good, the view was spectacular along with your prices ... astronomical. Can't afford to dine at the Chart House but once a year. The service started out very well and then got progressively worse. We we never asked if we wanted desert ... never asked if we would like a cup of coffee or after dinner drink and we had to wait 45 minutes for the waitress to cash out our tab. We had no idea what the wait was about since the restaurant was not swamped with guests. We did love the idea and it was a great surprise to the birthday girl to have her name written on the top of the menus. THAT was a very nice touch and made our birthday baby feel very very special on her special day. For that ... I thank you.

    I wanted a quiet birthday dinner. The noise was not a problem and it was very relaxing. Restaurants need to provide an area for patrons to eat and enjoy conversation without having to shout over the clanging of dishes and loud conversations from the bar. We left a restaurant last week just because we were unable to "catch-up" with our neighbors....

    The Charthouse is one of our favored places and we dine here often. Mostly outside which is lovely. This particular occasion, the first time ever, it was not terrific. The salmon and chicken in our salads were both dry. The service was slow especially for lunch. I took a friend for her birthday and was disappointed BUT the manager did make things right and we will NOT hold this against them for sure. It was a one time blip I believe.

    Food was very good although I had the snapper encrusted with crab dinner and the snapper was a little on the dry side. It may have been overcooked, but still very good. My wife had the three types of shrimp and they were excellent. The service was very good, although a little slow at times. Everyone should give this restaurant a try.

    I planned a romanitc birthday dinner, thinking that this Chart House would be similar to the others. The space is large and open; better for larger parties. There were several large parties going on while we were there. The background music was geared for a younger croud, not conducive for a romatic dinner for two. The food was very good, we ordered the brie, artichoke and shrimp appetizer which was very good and a grilled sea food sampler. For desert we ordered the lava cake which was good, but not unique. The service was a bit slow and inattentive, at that price point one expects more polished servers and hostessing.

    Food was very good, sitting on the outside deck at night amazing; but the service was lacking. Reservations were 8:45 pm (close at 10) felt like we were forgotten about because server had a bigger party inside. Felt he focused more on them then us, bigger party = bigger tip, two people I'll forget about them. Maybe my fault for booking late, but sunset was 8:30 and just wanted to enjoy dinner after watching the sunset. Will not do that again at the Chart House Tampa.
