Made reservation thru Open Table. Arrived early but still waited about 60 minutes for table. Staff was very polite and accommodating, but still had to wait even though we made the reservation. Not sure of the benefit of using the app.

We had a very tasty meal. The humus appetizer with plantain chips was very good. My wife had the prime rib and I had the mahi, mahi. Both were well prepared and good portions. I liked that they split the salad we shared for an appetizer. Only concern was that the Caesar salad had too much dressing. Service was efficient and server was pleasant.

Terrible food, a very institutional prime rib, disgraceful over cooked previously frozen Parmesan encrusted snapper with cold crab meat on top (frozen?) Even the cantaloupe in the burratta appetizer was rock hard underripe. Service was slow from kitchen to table, wait staff too young unable to discuss menu. Overall rating - never again.

We had a great meal at the Chart House. We leisurely enjoyed four courses...oysters on the half shell, New England clam chowder, surf & turf and Boston Cream pie. All these were excellent and our service was consistent and accurate. The historic atmosphere is wonderful on the waterfront.

Food and waiter was excellent. Valet professional was extremely rude and abrasive, he laughed in my face because he didn't feel as though I tipped him enough. I would not park at there unless you have to.

My friend and I went for lunch on a Friday. The weather wasn't that great, so it wasn't very crowded. The food was great, and all the staff was very pleasant. It was quiet, but , as I said, it wasn't very busy. I have a feeling, when the place fills up, especially the bar area, it can be quite loud. Mostly seafood on the menu, but they also had some choices for non-seafood lovers like me. I had the prime rib French Dip, and it was very good.

Came here for Easter Lunch. Food was top quality, delicious. The service was a little slow, but then again it was a holiday and our waitress was lovely. Prices are high however you do get what you pay for. Valet service was a much appreciated necessity in the city. The inside is dark red brick with beautiful windows looking out onto the pier. Definitely coming back in the summer so we can enjoy alfresco dining and take in the fresh salty air.

Have dined here many times and enjoyed the service, food and ambience. Dined here Easter Sunday and the experience was less than spectacular. Steaks and Prime Rib arrived over cooked and under cooked- sent back to the kitchen and they still couldn't get it right. Wrong meals delivered to wrong People at the table. Very bad day at the Chart House.

Our mail was very good but our dessert was overcooked the chocolate lava cake had no lava so overall I would definitely recommend people go but I do think it’s quite pricey just for an every day dinner

The valet staff was superb. Our waiter Charles was attentive and personable. The hostess stand - all four of them- were less than pleasant. We had to ask for Brunch menu. There is no toast or even a high end presentation with the brunch meals. Mediocre at best. The brunch items came first and ten minutes later the two regular menu entrees came out. The two of that received regular menu items were satisfied though our party who ordered the prime rib was brought the wrong meal so she had to wait a few minutes for her meal to come out. The ambiance is great. The appetizers - kim chee calamari and coconut shrimp were Delicious. We should have stopped there. The several hundred dollar meal was less than average. And disappointing considering we were there for a holiday.

I’ve been want to get back to Boston for awhile. The opportunity came to celebrate my wife’s & my birthday.So we booked an overnight stay and made reservations for the Chart House. I had been here several years ago, it was my wife’s first.We both loved it. The food, salmon for her blackened swordfish for me, was excellent.My wife also got the lobster bisque & I ordered the clam chowder. Again both perfectly done.The lava cake was a perfect finish.
Our server,Alyssa was great. Very attentive, always checking in at the right moment.
We definitely won’t wait long to get back. I mean what’s a 3 hour drive when it for a great meal!

Went for Boston restaurant week. We had to ask if there was a separate menu and there was. A couple of the fish on the menus were sold out, but the manager was very accommodating. The food ended up being very good and the history of the building is a wonderful addition.
