    The prime rib was very good as we're the crab legs. The sea bass was not fresh and had an off odor. The waiter offered to remove it from the bill. Service was good and got a little slow once the restaurant filled up.

    Me and my husband came to eat here because it was highly reccommended by a friend of his. We were celebrating our 6th wedding anniversary. We were seated in a nice area overlooking the harbor. We had our picture taken..too bad we had to pay but it was a nice picture of us. The food was excellent. Our waiter and other staff treated us really well. We look forward to dining here again.

    We made reservations for diner after having cocktails the week before . They sat us at a table that we shares with two other tables. I asked if they had something that wasn't back in a closet and that I shared with two other tables and they told me if I wanted another table it would be a hour wait. We sat ate the ribs were not good my wife had stuffed ahi and I think they used a cheaper fish. All in all I love Chart House And someone owes me an apology.

    We came here to celebrate my grandma's birthday. I was a little worried because some reviewers had called it "noisy" but we didn't find that that was the case. We were seated in the dining area with a lovely view of the harbor. Our server was friendly and efficient and the food was good! (Except for the steak, which was not great). Tip: On Friday nights, you can see the fireworks from the Hilton, so ask for a seat with a view. :)

    The Chart House on the Waikikii marina is very beauitful. The service was good, but the place was busy and your party can get lost. The baby back ribs were very large and fell off the bone. The NY strip steak had a great flavor, but was like chewing beef jerky, tough. The The French onion soup lacked a base and was watery. Having said all that the place is worth a second chance. Just stay away from the NY strip steak.

    I've eaten at several Chart House restaurants and this location was as good as all the rest -and that's pretty good! My wife and I were seated outside facing the Marina. The scenery was pleasant, the food was delicious -the best stuffed shrimp I've ever had, and our server was truly concerned about pleasing us. My water glass never reached half empty! The only thing that was am issue was the obnoxious know it all at the next table correcting the hard-working waiter on the attributes of a certain fish. Not the restaurant's fault. A great place to get away from the Waikiki Beach crowd.

    Arrived 15 minutes late, misread what time I booked, they still held Our table overlooking the harbour, very friendly staff and very efficient, we booked the set menu and that was good quality value for money, 3 courses for $30.95. My wife had the pork and I had the steak, cooked to perfection, for sweet I had the key lime pie which was enormous. Would highly recommend this restaurant, I'm booking again before we leave this gorgeous Island.

    Through "Open Table", dinner reservations made the day prior to Father's Day. Using Open Table, made it easier without hassles. At the restaurant, my reservations was confirmed and seated within minutes of our reservations. The service and food was excellent. Being it was Father's Day Dinner, a large crowd was expected and the noise level was on the higher side naturally. Had been to this restaurant a few times in the past and it has been consistent with great food, drinks and service.

    We are regulars at Dukes but we rarely eat in their restaurant area. We usually go to their bar for happy hour. We were pleasantly surprised to get a reservation so quickly. It was very nice that they placed us on a great table overlooking the Ala Wai Harbor. Talk about romantic! We enjoyed the Wagyu beef as well as the Szechuan Kahuku prawns. The Kahuku prawns are to die for! They usually run out fast but for some reason I was lucky to have them on a Saturday night. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary. We were too full for Hula Pie so we opted for the creme brule. If you order desert make sure you get the Hula Pie!

  • Elevated Steak House Fare
    NathanSVIP
    Dined on 5/23/2014
    Our meals were amazing. Each course from the soups (clam chowder and French onion), to the appetizer (stuffed mushrooms on a bed of garlic mashed potatoes), to our entrees (stuffed shrimp for her and ribs for me) and even to the dessert (crème brulee) had some unique feature of preparation, presentation, or flavor that was unexpected and elevated it above standard steakhouse fare. The service was responsive and very good early in the meal although we did notice it slowed dramatically after the fireworks as we waited for our check. Did I say fireworks? If you can reserve a spot on the lanai on Friday night, the neighboring hotel shoots fireworks over the beach and the Charthouse offers diners a perfect view.

    Food was OK. Clam chowder was "starchy" and not much taste. Squaw bread should be served warm, not cold. Key lime pie was a generous piece and one of the better ones I've had. Found the prices high for quality of food and the casualness of the restaurant. The restaurant has not been renovated for years. It is a typical tourist spot servicing the hotels in the area. Only went there because we were late in making Mother's Day reservations and it was the only restaurant able to seat 11 of us. Service was very good; both waiters were attentive and aimed to please.

    Food was very good, especially fresh oysters were excellent. But disappointed that the reservation did not matter to get a requested table. In fact, even we were treated as no show by the Open Table system. Probably better to show up earlier without a reservation and to take the table where you would like to seat.

    MarySunshine
    Dined on 4/26/2014
    Reservations made through Open Table. 30 minute wait to be seated. No apology for the long wait. Clueless hostesses. Nice order taker and server. Mediocre food. Ordered the Sunset Special--good Caesar salad, tough blandly seasoned sirloin steak, tasty wild rice, and sweet pineapple sorbet. Decent pricing for Waikiki although this is not a value or budget eatery. Pleasant live music in the bar; however, this makes the restaurant quite noisy. Validated parking at $5 for 4 hours. Tourists will probably enjoy their experience, but the restaurant should take care of the locals.

    This was our second visit to Chart House and again we had a lovely evening. Menu was varied with plenty of options. Staff were very attentive and our only criticism would be that the time between courses was not long enough for us. The main meal came so quickly after the entree that we would have preferred a little more time. Overall a wonderful night
