Chart House Restaurant - Boston Ratings and Reviews
Had a reservation for several weeks, when we arrived we were told there were many large parties and the only table available was down stairs by the entrance. I asked to be seated upstairs in the main dining area and was told it would be another 30 minutes. Not happy!
We had been going to the Chart House for years but this evening was VERY Disappointing. It was a Birthday dinner which our server never mentioned. They were suppose to have a small slice of cake and a personalized menu to remember the "SPECIAL EVENING". Our server was pleasant enough but didn't listen enough and her English was very difficult to understand. I am not sure if she was new, but our feeling was that she was in a hurry to get out early. The servers skill level did set the tone for an uneventful night. The highlight of the evening was free valet parking. Needless to say, we won't be returning to the Chart House anytime soon.
Soup temp was not hot enough. Food was generally very good to excellent otherwise. Service was excellent. We received a special dessert to recognize our occasion. Ambiance was great in the historical building.
Pace of food delivery was too quick at beginning and we started to feel rushed as the main course was served before we finished our appetizer. The server noticed it and put things back on track.
Over the top service - they made us feel personally, specially cared for all evening; with two children at the table, we can often be made to feel like an nuisance in a nice restaurant. Not at the Chart House! Thank you for truly lovely evening for my whole family.
Overall a great place for a meal, the ambiance and location is awesome for downtown Boston. The highlights of the Chart House are it's seafood, stay away from anything with legs (except the wine!). Great place for a business meal or a date.
It's a shame this is part of the Landry's chain, it could be truly outstanding. The sales pitch to join the Landry's club at the end of the meal puts a downer on the occasion.
Best experience of the night came from the valet parking attendant. Charthouse, you need to promote this guy.
Our server struggled, we assumed she was new. Our party of four was her first table; she was beyond attentive at first, crossing over to rushing us. When the second and third tables in her section filled in, she was clearly overwhelmed. At the end of our dinner, we expected the bill but after 30 minutes of watching her struggle with the other tables and no attention on us, we asked other wait staff for our bill.
The food was average at best. We have been to the Charthouse a few times but not since the summer of 2016. At that time service, food quality, beverages, everything was perfect. This time not so much. Changes have obviously taken place since the last time we dined here. Disappointing but I guess this one ran its course.
We will not be back.
waiter way to overpowering..did not tell the whole story..do you want truffle butter.i said yes.did not say it was a whatever charge.made my wife feel that salad came with meal..kept asking about appetizer.told him three times no..not feeling relaxed..feel pressure..actually roast beef was very fatty.the meat available on captains cut was poor
We were there on a Sunday night and the upstairs dining room was quite full, so we sat downstairs in a corner near the entrance. It was very quiet, but I suspect that's because of the day and the location.
The food was very good, especially the Thai soup - new to the menu, and delicious. The lobster bisque and clam chowder were a little too thick, with cream too prominent in the flavor, instead of the seafood.
We were in Boston on Honeymoon and dining at the Charthouse was highly recommended by 2 friends before we left home! We thoroughly enjoyed the experience! The ambience of dining in John Hancock’s counting house was breathtaking! The service provided by Jewel was delightful! The handcrafted cocktails were delicious and our meals were scrumptious!! The shrimp cocktail served with dry ice smoking from the serving dish was fun and appealing to the eye! It is a meal we will both remember for many year to come!
A Boston standby that has only gotten better over the years. The last time I was there must have been 10+ years ago. The menu is updated, the drink menu expanded, there are many more modern options. Our server took the time to learn about us and share some interesting facts about Boston.
As far as I know - you can't go wrong with the Chart House. It is why I went back and it proved itself all over again.
I had the Maine lobster which they take apart for you and remove the meat at the table, which is nice. The food was great. Very quiet place. Great wine selection.
Caution ladies, watch your shoe wear as there's 3 or 4 levels so you may end up walking up a lot of stairs.
