This was our 2nd Mother's Day dining at the Chart House. Not lazy, the food and the service were just that good. It is off the beaten path so it is less congested. The portions are adequate and the food was served at the right temperature. I would highly recommend it, however, it is pricey.

Chose this location to have dinner with my parents who were visiting for the weekend. Our time was limited, but the restaurant is within a reasonable distance to the airport. We arrived early enough to get window seating without a wait. Our server was very pleasant and attentive and know the answers to all the questions we had about the menu. They got us in and out in plenty of time and the food was great. We would return.

Don't miss one of the best of Marina del Rey! Unbelievable food and service. Be sure to request seating outdoors on the water.

Chart House - ALWAYS a treat
We have enjoyed dining at many different Chart House locations and without failure we are always pleased with the service, choices of entrees, location, etc. We were disheartened to learn this visit that several of the salad bars (that we have always looked forward to) were being discontinued at several locations! Huge disappointment. Also, several of us ordered a fish plate that were served on oblong plates that were lower on the sides and you couldn't put your fork down without them falling off the plate, and many times off the table. Just an annoyance and something that eventually you are aware enough of to place them differently, but, definitely an unnecessary obstacle to enjoying a lovely meal in one of our favorite restaurants.

Restaurant was good and the staff was pleasant & extremely attentive. For the price the portion size could have been a little larger. The cocktails were perfect! Also the lighting was a little off but overall, great time!!!

Dinner with a View
I had a business dinner with a client and my client wanted to go someplace that was quiet with a waterfront view. Being from the MDR area, we settled on the Chart House. Even though Chart House is a chain, they always put out decent food and we were provided outstanding service. It is a steak and seafood house so is a bit pricey, but worth it for the waterfront view, We were surprised that the noise level was so low, we were at least able to hear ourselves talk.

A great place to dine!
The Chart House restaurant in the Marina in Marina del Rey, California is an enjoyable, relaxing and impressive place to dine! David the Gen. manager will go out of his way to stop by your table and get to know you. The new servers are well-trained by Eric, one of my favorite servers. If you ever have the fortune to be served by Eric you're in for an especially enjoyable experience! The restaurant has a great atmosphere and the servers will make you and your guest feel important and at home! They will not rush you and make you feel like you are sitting at your table longer then you should! I recommend that you join Open Table to book your reservations. Check it out!

Great food and environment
Had a wonderful time at chart house with my family. The food is amazing and the environment is very romantic and nice. My only complaint would be that the food took a really long time to come out to us.

Frequent CH diner
First time at this CH location. Party of five including very elderly gentleman - valet and hostess were very accommodating as well as warm and welcoming. Our server, Chris, was outstanding and certainly created a pleasant dining experience. We enjoyed several of our CH favorites like Blue Hawaiians, sizzling mushrooms, prime rib, and mud pie - also liked new or seasonal items like crab tater tots and soup sampler.

The Chart House is an excellent choice for an excellent fresh seafood or steak entree preceded by a delicious salad bar. The marina view is wonderful and the service is friendly and efficient. My party enjoyed the salads, salmon, mixed grill, and fillet mignon that came before our chocolate lava cake dessert. Everything was tasty and went well with our wine offerings.
I recommend Chart House for couples or families seeking very good food in a great location.

Consistency is a virtue!
The Charthouse in MDR is a go-to restaurant for my husband and I no matter what the occasion. The food and the service are always good and the Marina makes for a lovely venue. It's a great choice for getting together with family and friends.

I was disappointed that the restaurant wasn't closer to the beach. The view of the harbor was nice, but I would have preferred a restaurant on the beach to watch the sunset with the love of my life.

Great food huge sound
The Chart House table service was great and the food was both delicious and well presented. But, the kitchen staff was very loud. Even though our table was not right beside the kitchen, I was frequently, almost continually distracted by the loud, jovial, perhaps boisterous voices emanating from the kitchen in multiple languages.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice, quiet place for lunch
To celebrate my mother's birthday, the Chart House was a quiet place to have a nice meal and to be able to enjoy conversation at the table. The only problem was the time it took for our food to be served. It must have been at least an hour! We kept looking towards the kitchen in hopes that we would see our food being brought out.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The fish is fresh and delicious. The crab cakes are awesome and you can't go wrong with any of the appetizers. Not to say the main dishes aren't good (they are) but I prefers loading up on the apps.

Service was definitely one of the things that stood out the most. It was so refreshing not to have to ask multiple times for refills. Our server was friendly and professional at the same time. The steamed mussels I ordered was among the best I've had. It was a larger plate than I expected which was a nice surprise since most restaurants serve small servings. The other flavorful food we ordered was the prime rib, filet mignon, seared scallops, and lobster. We will definitely be coming back soon!

Hidden Away Waterfront Classic
I've lived in the Marina so many years and had never been to the Chart House because it's off the beaten path down where you only go if you live there or dock a boat. Chart House has beautiful waterfront views. There aren't that many places where you can enjoy drinks and bar eats with a waterfront view. They have a great happy hour and the hours are extensive from 4:30-7:00 during the week. That beats most happy hour hours. The main menu is traditional steak and seafood and is pricey, but very in line for all of the other waterfront restaurants in the Marina. I may become one of the "Cheers-like" regulars at the bar and will be going back on a regular basis.
8/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Restaurant informed open
The Restaurant informed open table that I didn't honor my reservation, even though I did. Upon my earlly arrived to the restaurant (10 min) I referenced my reservationI to the hostess. My party and I were seated momentarily. When open table informed me via email that the restarurant could not confirm my attendance I responded that I did honor my reservation and asked them to get bad to my why the restaurant could not confirm my attendance that evening. Open table has never gotten back with me why the restaurant couldn't confirm my attendance that evening. Both the restaurants and open tables customer service is lacking regarding this matter. Please don't ask for customer responses if your not going to follow through.

The Chart House is an excellent
The Chart House is an excellent choice for diners seeking very good food, good service, and a terrific view of the marina. Both the steak and fish that were ordered at our table were delicious, as was the salad that we built at the salad bar. The wine list was varied and we enjoyed our selection.
It was much appreciated that the waiter noted a birthday celebration while checking id's, and we were presented with a complimentary chocolate lava cake. Nice touch!
The restaurant is frequently full so reservations are advised, particularly on weekends.

Good Food, neighborhood favorite
We usually reserve special evenings for this restaurant, come for the location and view. Never tire of looking at boats and water. Highly recommend.

My husband and I went for dinner to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Shared a very good bottle of Merlot and dinner was excellent. We didn't want dessert, as we were full, but waitress was very kind and brought us a smaller portion of their mud pie with a candle in celebration of our anniversary.

Great food, outstanding service!
We had a perfect dinner at the Chart House, Marina Del Rey. The food was fantastic, steak was cooked perfectly. The service was also outstanding. Our server was exceptional and made sure everything arrived to our table as ordered. The restaurant was beautiful and we had an enjoyable, relaxing time. The manager even stopped by during our dessert to ask how everything was. Very well run and we will definitely be going back!

I would recommend the Chart House to family and friends. The combination of food, service, and view is a winning combination. Our server (Kris) made excellent recommendations on beverages and appetizers. The experience was very enjoyable.

On top of My List
This was my first visit to the Chart House. We selected this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The server was amazing. Very warm and charming...and helpful as well selecting the right itesms. We normally don't get a appitizer, but being this was a special occasion, we decided on the crab, shrimp and vegetable fritters. They were the best thing I have ever eatten. The entries were really good, but the the grilled shrimp were overcooked and chewy. Overall, I would recommend this place to all my friends. A bit pricey, but well worth it.

Last Minute stop
We tried this place as a last minute "let's go" and it was great. The wait staff was helpful, provided suggestions and overall very attentive. The reservation was fairly late, and we were not rushed, the food was excellent and the poppers you cannot get enough of!
Overall great choice, awesome meal, great service.

If I could give it 6 stars, I would. Food and service were the best. We had The best clam chowder to start. My wife had the White Sea Bass with Gnocchi and Mushrooms. It was the best Gnocchi I have tasted since I was in Italy 3 months ago. I had the Distinctive Menu for $29.95. With three courses, it was a great bargain. The short ribs were very good. We are going back again tonight. Rosko was our waiter and did a great job.

A very enjoyable evening
Our group of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Chart House in Marina Del Rey. Nicely decorated and well designed with noise suppression in mind, this restaurant has great views of the marina from every table. The wine list is small, but has enough variety to keep even the pickiest oenophile happy - and won't break the bank. Service was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent, with only one issue for one of our group who found that her herb crusted salmon was excessively salty. Overall, we all liked this restaurant.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
I had another incredible, memorable, impressive, enjoyable and fun evening at the Marina Del Rey Chart House. My server Eric did an incredible, impressive job of serving my every wish and desire. He treated me like the royalty. It was also impressive that some of the servers that were serving other tables would stop by and say hi. I was very impressed and enjoyed myself immensely. It was a fun experience. Regarding "Open table". I had two issues and they cleared both issues up almost immediately. I was also impressed with the way that Open Table did not question me. I book all of my dining presentations through Open Table and I recommend to anyone reading this that you also give them a try. You will be impressed!

First Thanksgiving Dining Out
I visited the Los Angeles area for Thanksgiving to share it with my son who is in grad school. As he has a bachelor pad with eating and cooking utensils for one, dining out was our option. I am happy we selected Chart House. We arrived slightly earlier than our reservation and had planned to sit at the bar but we were pleased when we were able to be seated before we even got to the bar! The complete turkey dinner was pretty good and the atmosphere was relaxing and conducive to quiet conversation. I was able to spend quality time with my son and not have to worry about trying to cook a Thanksgiving dinner. I believe I will have more Thanksgiving dinners at a nice restaurant such as the Chart House in the future. I would definitely return.
