    This was a lunch on 2/21 and it was a very good meal as usual. Excellent lobster bisque, fish & chips, French dip sandwich and the Coffee/Mud Pie gets a 10. Service was very good.

    I came out to celebrate my wife's birthday. Everything we ordered came out picture perfect and full of flavor. However my wife could not finish her meal so we asked for to go plates. The waiter took the plates to the back and wrapped up the remaining food. Once we got home we noticed that her plate was missing the shrimp. It only came with 2 so it was pretty easy to spot. It sucks because she was really looking forward to eating those shrimps.

    It’s been a few years since we’ve been in. I was in town for a week and stayed with good friends. Before catching my flight out, I treated to dinner at CH. It’s my opinion that the Old Fashion and the lobster bisque are two of the top choices you’ll find most anywhere! We all had fantastic meals and top notch service. The ONLY change I personally would ever suggest is the music choice. It doesn’t fit the caliber of the establishment what so ever.

    Went here with my girlfriend for her birthday and had a great dinner! The waitstaff was friendly, attentive, and very knowledgeable about the menu. Food and starters came out in a timely manner. I ordered the spiced ahi which was perfect! A bit pricey but it is Boston and seafood nonetheless. Will definitely return in the future!

    Made NYE reservations- was never told it was ONLY a prix fix menu. Food was disappointing. Lobster bisque was not edible- overly salted. Veggies weren’t even cooked… I like crunchy but this was ridiculous. Lobster tails weren’t cooked through. After sending back the soup, I just took a to go box and dumped everything else in to cook at home the next day. Waiter never checked back on us and seemed irritated we were even there.

    Outstanding service from our server Zoe.... She made you feel you were the most important people in the room. Food was great for their New Years special menu. My only problem was after dinner we went downstairs for a drink to wait for the fireworks and the host/waitress was totally rude and doesn't do justice for the Chart House way. We sat at a table to order a drink and she came over and said "are you ordering food? we said just a drink we ate upstairs and are waiting for the fire works SHE SAID THEN YOU CAN'T sit here. I was appalled...I did not want to make a scene so we got up and left. I should say that we have been coming here for New Years over ten years ..... not sure we'll be back.... I want to add the people next to us at the time offer us a chance to sit with them ,,, very nice .... This woman was not the kind of people Chart House should employ... DOes not to promote the good name of Chart House

    We are a family of 4 children 12 and 10yrs and had a very memorable Boston New Year’s Eve dinner at the Chart House. It is beautifully located on a wharf near the Aquarium. We sat down easily early around 5pm and then walked to the trolley station to do an evening tour. The food was delicious! For young and older. The atmosphere was seasonal and historically stunning. Our server Zoe was incredible. Polite, patient with kids Mac and cheese questions and gave us an historical overview of the building. We were running late for our trolley tour so she arranged to pack up our dessert for later pick up! Thank you! Matt and Marla

    Another excellent dinner at the Chart House! Excellent, attentive service, as usual. Chopped salad is so good. The shrimp cocktail is excellent too. Hubby got the featured cocktail, a "Torched Apple Manhattan", which was a big production, being made at our table with a torch, smoking the glass, and mixing the drink, which he said was delicious! The atmosphere is a beautiful combination of old wooden beams and brick, and breathtaking architectural details.

    My family and I had a nice lunch there to begin with, but the outcome sucked. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and the history of the building. My wife has the herbed chicken, my daughter had the panned chicken and I had the lobster stuffed scrod. The chicken was good, but the lobster stuffed scrod was terrible. Too much seasoning and the breadcrumbs were mushy. The scrod (whatever fish they used) was tasteless. The clam chowder I had was also very watery and had no flavor. I later had violent stomach issues because of what I had eaten. I definitely won't be returning here. 🤮🤮

    No exaggeration, it was literally the worst experience at a restaurant we have ever had. We were there for 45 minutes before our drink Order was taken. Then we ordered grilled salmon for my son and specified a dairy allergy and filet mignon for me. They came back to our table of 9, half of which ordered filet mignon and told us that the cuts weren’t going to be 9 oz as specified and wanted to know if it was ok if they added shrimp. That was fine for everyone but me as I have a shellfish allergy. I was very specific about it and mine came with shrimp and my son’s with a butter sauce. Unacceptable. We sent them back and didn’t get ours for another 40 minutes at which time everyone else was done. We ended up leaving before dessert. My kids didn’t even get to sing happy birthday to my husband. We will never go back to the Chart House again.

    This was our first time there, so I don’t have anything to compare to. However… It was Christmas… And it seemed they had jammed many tables in there, to serve as many as possible. The servers worked hard and fast, but it gave a rushed feeling to our time there. Food was certainly delicious… However, it was surprising to have a sauce served cold over the hot bass. I asked the waiter about the temperature of the sauce and lobster, and he said that they serve it cold, but offered to warm it. The lobster bisque was delectable, if without any lobster chunks. I guess I had expected more of a festive experience for the amount of money that it cost to eat there. I am not sure I would return for that amount of money for that experience. Portions were not impressive.

    This is my 3rd Christmas at Chart House. Was best service by far thanks to server Tristian. In 2022 the service was rushed & poor. Thus was a huge improvement. Quality service is so important. Food as always solid. One of the filets was undercooked, but server checked when we received & sent back. Some delay between apps/soup/salad & main course, but that was okay.

    The most delicious Christmas dinner we have EVER had. From the salad with the outstanding dressing, to the prime rib perfectly roasted, to the buttery mashed potatoes, to the perfectly mixed Christmas drinks, to the grilled vegetables, and to the heavenly finale' of desserts. Fine dining at its best. The professional wait staff was positively perfect in all aspects, the chefs were right on point, and the valet parking was complimentary...we added a generous tip to both wait staff and valet. You will have the most enjoyable meal at The Chart House; make sure you make a reservation.....otherwise your seating wait time is 2 hours. Happy New Year 2024!!
