Chart House Restaurant - Cardiff
My husband and I have been dining at this chart house for appx. 30 years. We love it so much because of the ocean view great cuisine and service. WWe treat our family and friends to lunch or dinner every chance we get.
Absolutely perfect. Great innovative food, beautiful view of the PACIFIC, excellent server, birthday was celebrated, and total enjoyment.
everything was great just kind of overpriced
Maya was wonderful. Great service. Thanks
Great location, great food, great service. We enjoyed the evening!
As always we really enjoyed and were very proud to treat visiting family to a wonderful dining experience. Personally the Charthouse is our favorite and has now become a favorite for visiting family as well Service was great as always
Enjoyed a great lunch with 4 friends yesterday; great window table; weather perfect.
Food was delicious--I enjoyed the Thai Shrimp dish, have had before and it's always perfect!
Gene was our server and he was very attentive.
We will return again.
On Monday, March 9, 2020- we choose Chart House as our place to celebrate my husband's birthday- we were a party of 5 and arrived at 6:00 for our dinner reservation. We sat at a nice window table and our server was very nice. She took our drink order and it seemed to take a long period of time before they were delivered. Our server apologized for the delays- she then took our dinner order. After a very long time, they finally brought some bread and butter (we had to request) and only enough butter to accommodate half the table- we had to ask for more and that took forever. Finally our appetizer arrived- it was delicious. Meanwhile, my son could see a steak sitting under the heat lamp- it sat for over 30 minutes before our meals arrived. Once it arrived, the steak was really cold. My husband's prime rib was cold. Our prime rib was luke warm- so they took back both the steak and prime rib to the kitchen. After 10-15 mins they returned with the same dinner and now the steak was over cooked and my husband's prime rib was more well done that desired. The server finally came back to see how everything was and by this time, we were all finished eating with the exception of our guest who had the steak- they offered to bring another but at this point he would have been eating alone and was very upset. The manager came over and had little to offer other than another dinner which was too late. He did remove the dinner from our check- but the overall time from arrival to finish was more than 2 1/2 hrs. The manager did admit that something was wrong with the kitchen staff. Not planning on returning anytime soon.
Maya was the best server we could ask for. She even remembered what we ordered when we dined there last month. We will look forward to returning and having her again as our server.
You can always can count on great food. Go early to see the sunset.
The mango stack, lobster bisque and clam chowder were fantastic. Our main courses were also excellent (Mac Nut Mahi and Prime Rib). The absolute BEST thing we had though (besides the Lava Cake) was the sampler Creme brûlée. Regular, lemon, and .... the most fabulous dessert we’ve ever eaten...black-raspberry. Next time, we’re going to just eat appetizers and dessert!! Soooo goood!
My partner and I decided to celebrate my birthday dinner and made a great choice! The table for 2 had a lovely ocean view of the sunset. Our bread was hot and fresh and refilled promptly. The Lobster bisque was piping hot and delicious. The shrimp cocktail was succulent and fresh. The lobster tail was hot and sweet. The salmon cooked to perfection. A wonderful experience.
Great Food and Service! Staff was very friendly and helpful. The view is amazing!
Great food and service as always
Great food, prime location, and great atmosphere! Love to eat out at this location and its great to have good company to share it with!
Very nice experience. Food was nice and the service was very nice.
The staff were really sweet, and left us a card and a desert for our special occasion, it was amazing!
It was our 32nd Anniversary and the staff at Charthouse made us feel special. From Devon's warm greeting to Shaun's awesome service, we really enjoyed ourselves.
It was chilly sitting near the open windows and they said their policy was not to close them.. They did bring lap blankets.
Fabulous location and cuisine for a memorable get together
Ordered the mahi and it came practically raw in the middle. Found this out after I took a bite out of it. My daughter ordered the coconut shrimp and it was much better at red lobster. The manager came to our table and offered a free dessert. The kind they give you for an anniversary. Why would anyone go here is beyond belief with all the wonderful restaurants around San Diego. View is great but if you want that there are many other places. Look at the photo and you can see how uncooked it was never will I go here again
Service was unusually slow on this particular evening - which was ok as we were catching up with relatives and could use the time together anyway
The brunch was very tasty, serving a variety of Eggs Benedict dishes. The cinnamon toast French Toast, served with fresh fruit was good as well. Our server was attentive and polite. The room was well lit and the ambient noise was not intrusive. We have dined there before for dinner, but will certainly return for their Sunday brunch.
Great food and service as always
Had to send back two of the four meals to be cooked completely one mill took two tries no apology offered no one seem to care
I was very disappointed with this dinner. I brought my sister and her new husband as a celebratory dinner and the'd come in from Colorado so we really wanted to treat them. We told the hostess, our server, and the scheduler what we were celebrating and each noted that they would do something special for them. Nothing was done, but most importantly, the baked potatoes came out hard - uncooked, and then when returned we were told they had no more. Additionally, we asked for two lava cakes in advance and when our waitress came to see if we were ready for our lava cake, we clarified two cakes were ordered, and she acted as though she just made a simple mistake. However, when we got them it was clear she had forgotten one, as we got two different desserts. I'm by far an easy going customer, but this was an embarrassment and completely put us off on the chart house. We'll be going to PCG going forward...it's right next door and we have not had any bad experiences there to date. Charthouse, you need to up your game! This used to be our go to spot!
We absolutely loved our dinner . What a special treat not only is view amazing but so is food and service !
Went for a nice dinner with the fiancé. Food was excellent, service was great. Would recommend and will definitely be back!
The food was very good, the service was very good, and the room can’t be beat.
Terrible service. Waitress literally disappeared after taking our order. Had to ask others for drink order and still waited over 15 minutes for a simple wine order. Restaurant was not busy but still placed at a table in the back overlooking the kitchen, even after booking a week earlier. Had to go to front desk to get check after waiting 30 minutes and watching staff hang out at the bar. We go often but may never go back
The ocean view was AMAZING! We sat next to the window which was opened up to the beach! The service was attentive and the food for lunch was delicious 😋
The best reason to go here is for the view. Having said that, I made a request for a table by the window, and got one further back. Which is OK, but it would have been great if someone had at least acknowledged my request. The food was good, the service not as good. No one once checked on us to see how our food was. My wine came in a dirty glass. The server was more like a salesperson than a server. Seriously. He asked if we wanted to order dessert before the meal. Huh? Would you like (fill in the blank). Soup? Salad? Another appetizer? A side order of vegetables? More drinks? No, actually I don't. And I probably won't be back.
We have been going to this restaurant since the 70’s, I can honestly say for all the years we’ve been going there, this was the worst experience we have EVER had there. We went early to have a drink in the bar, we did ck in at the front desk with a young woman, I explained to her we were early to have a drink in the bar, (we had a hour till our reservation time) I showed her our Landry card and asked if we could be accommodated at a window table. She said we’ll see what’s available at our time. We hadn’t been sitting in the bar for more than 15 minutes when she came and got us to go to our table, our appetizer had not arrived so I told my husband to go to the table and I would wait for the appetizer. When my husband got to the table area there was a window table available but my husband was told he could not have it, actually she said “that’s not going to happen” so he took the table she told him to. The window table sat empty till we ordered dessert. The restaurant at this time was not full. He texted me to come to the table without the appetizer, our waitress was very sweet and retrieved it. The way my husband was treated by the hostess was unacceptable. S Cal has lots of beachfront restaurants so I’m afraid we will be going to try a few of them from now on.
Everything was very good except the hostess seemed to forget that we were waiting in the bar area. We arrived 45 minutes early before our reservation and told her we'd wait in the lounge. After we saw 4 open tables and it was our reservation time, we went up to her and reminded her we were waiting. We then waited about 5 minutes before being seated. Otherwise, food, table, view and waitress were very good!
Excellent service from the moment you drop your car off at the valet until you pick your car up .
Great location and have been coming here since you had a salad bar, and I am not as happy. We came for valentines lunch and just not that great. We are laundry’s members and all that but lately our visits here are lacking....bummer.
Very enjoyable lunch — window table on a beautiful day; restaurant not at all packed so noise wasn’t an issue; food and service were great.
Mango stack and crab cake starters both very good. Cedar plank salmon cooked perfectly (raw center). Server Samantha was excellent.
Will definitely return.
