    Went to the Chart House for the first time in many years. We weren’t sure what to expect. The service was nice, our meals were both delicious. My partner had the prime rib which was properly prepared and juicy while I had the Macadamia Mahi, a nod to the Chart House classic, also excellent. We’ll be back!

    The food was outstanding! The Mahi and Salmon were both delicious. The three tastings of Creme Brulee were each brilliant in their own way. Excellent view of the ocean out the large windows even on a cloudy day. There will be many return visits!

    Waited almost 45 minutes after our scheduled reservation time to finally sit down. Noise level was so loud we had trouble carrying on a conversation. Service was lousy and indifferent. Save your money or frequent another place that is really happy that you chose to dine there!

    Poor service, long wait times, dry food, and empty restaurant. We both ordered salads and they took forever. Not sure why this was so poor as I eat there often. I talked to then manager but no change. Time to find other lunch alternatives.

    We love this location, have for 30 years. Food was not as good a normal, I think probably due to an Easter assembly line process with a limited menu. But we were there for nostalgia.
