Went to Chakra for the first time for Mother's Day. Ambiance and service was fantastic. As for the food it was just average and I did not feel it was worth near the price that was charged. I would highly recommend Chakra for appetizers and cocktails.

They added an 18% Gratuity for a party of two. Not good.

We tried Chakra for mother’s day dinner and we’re very pleased with the offering. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the food and staff were great. It was a prefix menu, but the selection was very good. The food was prepared perfectly and we throughly enjoyed ourselves. We will be back to try things off of the regular menu soon.

From the minute we walked in until we left we were greeted with the most pleasant, attentive, wonderful staff. The manager Daniel Morgan walked us to our table and our waitress was on top of everything. Our glasses we not empty the whole night. I was astounded. The food was amazing. Foie Gras pizza was the best thing I’ve ever heard. Flowers Pinot noir worth the money and Pama Sutra delicious. We will definitely be going back again.

Love this restaurant. The lighting in the bar area sets a wonderful relaxing mood. However. The lighting over the dinner tables is to harsh and on high...needs to tone down a bit to keep the same mood.

It was my birthday and my sister recommended we try it. Happy hour deals are good. You can make it like a dinner if you just order off happy hour menu. Dinner is a bit pricey but food was good. We went on a wine tasting night so our service was a bit slow. Overall it was a good experience.

My only disappointment was that I had a reservation for 8:30pm and still had to wait to be seated. We got there about 8:20 and checked in. For a reservation that was made days in advance and had to use my credit card to hold the reservation we shouldn’t have had to wait to be seated. Great place and food regardless

I felt it was a beautiful place, just cost too much for the amount of food you get. Paid 35 for a steak to still be hungry. Drinks however are very good.

Excellent cocktails, service and ambiance. Food, however, was not as good as it was the last time I dined there about 2 years ago. TC Steak was overcooked for medium rare and the grilled octopus was bland as were the black truffle shavings (which were not worth the extra cost) on the fois gras duck ravioli special.

Anniversary dinner. Was exactly perfect. Food was amazing. Service was outstanding. A little pricy for an everyday dinner. But if you are looking to impress your partner with an amazing place with very romantic setting and great food and drink, this is def the place. I will absolutely go back again. Highly recommend

Everything was totally awesome. The calamari was crispy and the sauce delicious. The octopus with the smokiness when the kid was removed. And the nice surprise of the foie gras pizza. For our entrees, the tuna and Chilean sea bass were fresh and wonderful. For dessert we finished with some ice creams and the peanut dacaoise. The canal was lovely and so relaxing. Thank you very much for a memorable evening.

I had read some negative reviews but went anyway for a Valentine's celebration. We were not disappointed. From beginning to end, everything was outstanding. The service, the ambiance and the food. There were so many outstanding choices on the menu that it was very hard to choose. The raw oysters were fabulous; the crab cake was all crab cake and amazing; the lamb was excellent, but I could not finish it and took it home. I had to leave room for dessert. I had the goat cheese cheesecake. Wonderful, and I am a cheesecake expert. Water was refilled constantly. People came to the table to ask how we like everything. We had been wanting to go there for a long time and will certainly return.

Nice food but price range is really expensive. 2 people including 2 wine glass and 2 cocktail 400$$ and they include the tip. Almost 70 dollars worth of tip.
