Chart House Restaurant - Alexandria
Book your next event with us
I cant recall my servers name but he was awsome... My crab cream soup was delicious... The Panned Chicken was also delicious .We will return very soon.
They over booked and did not honor reservations. There was no place to sit or stand while waiting. The Chart House made no concessions for any of these.
It started off as a very bad experience because I made reservation on 2/14/2019 and had to wait almost a hour to be seated. Whats the point of a making reservations if I still have to wait.
Bright side : I love this place and after I was seated it was an amazing experience once again.
Could not keep a reservation! While the food experience was positive, the restaurant seated us 50 minutes after the reservation time!
Despite it being very busy, our waiter Jamie was fantastic! We never had to hunt him down and he was very friendly. Our food was fantastic and didn’t seem to take very long to come out. My date and I were very satisfied and we can’t wait to return!
Food was great and our server was awesome. Taking points off the rating due to being seated 45 minutes after our reservation.
Waited for almost an hour for a table that I put a reservation in for almost a month in advance... not acceptable
We had reservations for 7:15 and were seated at 8:05. I may go there for an early or late lunch again, but never again for dinner.
The only issue we had was the extra almost 40 extra minute wait for our dinner [reservation at 7pm, wasnt seated until 7:38pm.]....I'll just leave it up to the fact it was Valentines Day. Our server Mark was polite and courteous...
My Wife and I went to another restaurant earlier and was very disappointed with the service before we could get our menu. We asked to be moved to another table and was rudely told "No" in a loud voice. No explanation or simply stating that the tables were assigned. Next we reviewed the Valentine menu found nothing that we liked.
We decided to leave the restaurant and by chance I looked at OpenTable and found an opening at 6:15 for the Chart House. We couldn't believe it but we had a great view and the food was excellent. Even the price we paid was the same price we would have paid at the first restaurant but with a bottle of wine included. Great Night and great service.
Another great meal! A little bit of a seating delay and a bit more packed than usual thanks to Valentine's day, but overall great dinner!
Great service and great food! One of our favorite restaurants.
We are Landry's Select members and often enjoy a night out at the Alexandria Chart House. But never again on Valentine's Day! We had reservations at 6, but weren't seated until 6:40 (but my husband likes the bar there, so we had a drink and the wait wasn't too uncomfortable). Then, it was a good thing that we ordered the salad bar, because the kitchen was really slow to get our meal out (with no explanation from our server until we asked about it). The food was good, although my husband's prime rib was definitely on the rarer side of medium rare! The peanut butter ice cream was great.
The table was lovely (if a bit hard to slide in and out of the booth). We were glad to leave when we did, however, because a huge party (16 - 20 people, with a lot of kids) were seated directly in front of us and were quite boisterous as they came in -- definitely would have put a crimp in a "romantic" date if we'd have had them during the whole meal.
Service was good, considering the crowds of people.
Overall, we enjoyed our meal -- but I much prefer quieter evenings with fewer people.
Had a great time at Chart House. Great drinks at the bar while we waited for our table. Our waiter was prompt and keep us supplied with everything we need to make the night special.
Good Job Chart House Staff !
The food and service was outstanding. The atmosphere was great. A perfect Valentines Dinner.
My wife and I have been to Chart House several times and have never been disappointed. Our last visit was Valentines Day 2019. Our server was Hilton. He was outstanding. He took very good care of us and next time I visit the Chart House I am going to request his section/table. If it were a 1-10 rating I'd give it a 100!
The food and service were terrific,as usual. I was disappointed that I am a Landry member, but we did not have a window seat for our 4:45 reservation. Also, the price of $185 for our Valentine’s meal was not really a deal, as described. The couple with us ordered ala carte items, and they basically had the same types of salads, entrees, and desserts for about fifty dollars less. I do not think the small bottle of wine that came with the Valentine’s special was worth the cost.
I could have made better food. It tasted like an upscale Texas road house. Food way to expensive for the quality.
Appetizers and crab cakes were very good though. Main course was very disappointing. The rice tasted like uncle bens microwave bag rice. Steak was dry even though medium rare.
Great service and great view. What more could a person need?
Good food, reasonably priced. The service was excellent. Our waitress was attentive and not only allowed us to have separate checks, but even split the dessert seven ways, since seven of us ate it! Really well handled. Chart House has a great view of the Potomac River. Alas, it was rainy and foggy during our lunch.
We had a lovely anniversary dinner. Julio and Victoria were our servers and were attentive and gave us great guidance on the menu (I have several food restrictions) and wine selection. The food was as wonderful as I had hoped for as I'd been dreaming of Ahi tuna ever since we made our plans to dine here for our celebration. Presentation was a bit lack luster for such a nice and pricey place....our meal didn't come with veggies and it was like they left that spot open on our plate so something looked like it was missing...maybe add garnish or just include veggies? But overall, I'd recommend this location without hesitation.
YES I WOULD, THE SERVICE WAS REALLY GOOD AND THE RESTAURANT WAS VERY NICE, WOULD DEFINATELY GO BACK AGAIN
We were seated in such an uncomfortable seat it made it hard to enjoy the dinner. Sever servers bumped into our table spilling our waters and drink. I liked the place, but did not like where we were seated.
Food was great and service impeccable. I would definitely return again and again and again and again.
Great food and great service.
The kimchi calamari was delicious, oysters were good but small the entrees were delicious. Best of all was the service! Only downfall was tables too close together if anyone needed to get up everyone on one side had to too. Plus couple next to us had to FaceTime. If we weren’t so close it would have been fine
We were really not wanting to dine at a “chain” restaurant in charming Old Town Alexandria, but what a wonderful experience we had. Requested a window table, check! Excellent service, check! Fabulous food and presentation, check! Beautiful setting, check! Thank you for a great evening!
Great food, excellent service!!! The waitress was always there and lively. The ladies at the front counter were pleasant and made us feel welcomed.
Excellent service on Super Bowl Sunday! Taylor was an excellent addition to our anniversary celebration. Thank you for the very kind greeting card and the expert service.
The portions were just right, & our waiter was outstanding. My date & I kept telling one another how good the food was lol. Although we didn’t have any, the drink and dessert menu was awesome as well. Ask for Alexandria!
The view was terrific, the salad bar was good and the service was polite. The crab cakes were terrible, food presentation was like a diner, very disappointing for the price and the champagne tasted soapy and undrinkable. We returned it but it didn’t improve.
Thank you for making my mother's birthday lunch so pleasant! It was especially nice for her to receive your birthday card and the complimentary dessert.
I always enjoy my experience, and Michael our server for the evening was great, attentive and had a glad attitude to serve us and he really made the experience enjoyable.
An excellent dining experience ! I highly recommend this Resturant .
A birthday celebration on a Thursday evening. It was the perfect evening. The food was excellent.
We met here on a Thursday night in January. We waited in the bar for our party to arrive. The restaurant is right on the water and a really cool space. The drinks are interesting and fun. A few of us got the mojito flights.
We were seated for dinner and the restaurant really is very pretty with spectacular views. I'd say the food is just okay. Not inspired, my mahi tasted fishy, the mango rice was pretty bland and the green beans were okay. Nothing terrible, nothing terribly delicious. But it was a nice evening with great service and fun drinks.
Enjoyed gazpacho, crab cake appetizer & grilled salmon entree. Crab cake was full of crab not fillers. Salmon was grilled to perfection. Jasmine rice was delicious and broccoli seasoned with garlic was very yummy. Unfortunately,no room for dessert!
Everything was just perfect
The Chart is regular place that we visit. It has always had great food, service and ambiance.
My wife and I dine at Charthouse House about once a month. The service and food are always great. The service is always great.
