The Chart House never disappoints. A classy Dana Point classic.
Server was super busy and we felt rushed. The view was nice but overall the food was average. Didn’t meet expectations from what I remembered.
Nothing could be improved with our dinner evening celebrating a birthday. Felt so good to have a very tasty meal, nice ambiance & exceptional service. Keep up the good work. Love the Charthouse!
All of the above checked were excellent. When we arrived we had a short 5 min wait outside and they opened exactly at 4pm when our reservations were for. We were 2nd in, asked for a window seat & were seated with a fabulous view. My only problem was when I signed up for Landry’s special club at home they acknowledged my dinner price but gave me no points. The waiter said we had 96 points. It was Sunday so I couldn’t reach anyone.
Our waiter John was amazing! He went the extra mile and was a joy to have as a server. The food was okay, but not outstanding. Presentation was beautiful, but my Mahi was on the warm side and the flavors were okay. Ambiance and music were great for our gal's night dinner. Will definitely return and try a new dish.
First time dining inside at any restaurant for more than a year due to Pandemic, felt very comfortable with table spacing due to round building design with concrete dividers between booths - lots of privacy
Food was great. Drinks were weak!
It started off rocky with the hostess who was unpleasant and kinda rude. Not sure if it was that time of the month. But her attitude was poor. However, the manager step up to the plate and made it a very nice experience.
I must say, she was a class act.
Views were incredible, food was good and service was excellent. We will be back.
The steamed lobster i ordered was put under a heat lamp to keep it warm which then essentially dried it out and made it near broiled. Was gross. Also I requested to be seated outside. I was sat indoors. Only to see a couple not 5 mins later be seated outside. Ive been to the chart house in other states and have never had such a poor experience. Will give up on this chain for good.
Outstanding on all levels. Recommend.
We enjoyed our dining experience with our visiting friend from Maryland. The delicious dinner with the view, no better place to show the best in Dana Point. Thank you!
Everything went great. Food was fabulous, service friendly and prompt.
Chopped spinach salad, filet mignon with garlic mashed potatoes, cherry cheesecake. Can’t decide which we loved the most! Our server Matthew was great, friendly and helpful. We were celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary. Perfect place to do it! We sure missed Chart House during the pandemic.
Thanks for the wonderful evening.
Food was cold. Prime rib less than average We were celebrating 2 birthdays that the restaurant was well aware of and no celebration. Very disappointing
Best choice in Orange County. Views of harbor are magnificent
Food and service were wonderful!! Great atmosphere and the location is awesome.
Perfection. Great ambience, amazing food and service. What else could you ask for?
The food was very good as usual but due to Covid we sat outside and it was quite chilly which did not lend well to relaxing and talking so we ate and left right away. We have always had great meals here and this was no different.
Food was outstanding from start to finish! Lava cake is by far the best desert. The drunken cheesecake wasn’t the best but it didn’t sour the experience.
Very beautiful and relaxing, pictures came up awesome even after dark with dark blue so amazing.
Service is bad, waitress never came back checking on us after served.
Fantastic service and great food with a million dollar view, what more could you ask for?
The outdoor experience is the best while overlooking the harbor & beautiful Pacific Ocean! Our server Jake made some great recommendations & took great care of us!
A wonderful early dinner, delicious entrees & fabulous view!!
I was so excited to come here for my birthday dinner. We sat outside and the view is gorgeous. The waiter though was extremely non attentive. We ordered just a couple appetizers and then our entrees. No alcohol. Perhaps you get better service if you get several drinks each or if your drunk maybe you don’t care. The lobster bisque was bland and not quite hot. The pieces of lobster in it were cold. The shrimp cocktail is great though, huge shrimp and yummy chutney under the cocktail sauce. I had the lobster tail and my husband had the prime rib. Both were lovely, but we finished eating and were left with the dishes for a good 30 minutes. The waiter maybe was overworked but overall it felt disappointing. This restaurant also seems to cater to an older crowd and lacks any kind of ambiance.
I was expecting better food to be honest,the service amazing,the server very nice and very friendly the food runner not to good at all
TERRIBLE! Fish was soggy, old, service was unacceptable, no one seemed to care that the food was inedible and didn’t care about the birthday occasion for my mother’s 81st birthday with relatives from back East. Been going for 20 years, what a disappointment after waiting one year for COVID reopening.
Our server was terrific. He definitely helped us with the wine selection. The prime rib special was delicious. Perfectly cooked.
The food was mostly very good with generous portions of our appetizer and the view of the harbor was excellent.
Everything was perfect. We hosted a special wine tasting & dinner party. Food was great as ususal, staff was outstanding .
We celebrated our anniversary at the Chart House. We were not disappointed. Covid precautions were taken by spacing diners. The food was delicious. I had the filet mignon and hubby had the salmon, both were delicious! We look forward to going again!
We had our first girls night in over a year — great evening outside with great food and wonderful service. Our server Max was fantastic and made our evening even better than we could have hoped. Grateful for the memories we will have and look forward to coming back again soon.
The food was a little disappointing but our waiter was extremely nice and funny.
Disappointed in the service. We sat for about 10 minutes until my husband finally asked if we had a server. Even after calling attention to it, service was lacking. It was early and it wasn’t that busy. Too bad. The restaurant came with great recommendations but it didn’t live up then. I doubt we’ll ever return
Very Disappointed that they stopped their Happy Hour because of Covid. While the quality of their food is very good, they had a very minimal appetizer list which was minus many items that we've enjoyed in the past. Please bring back Happy Hour or at least increase the items on your appetizer menu - maybe some non seafood items.
The chart house is always a treat for us whenever we can get to one. Appreciate the view and the great staff at Dana Point!
Never disappoints great service and food so happy to celebrate my birthday there last week!!
Our server Matthew was great. Food was good, but not as good as last time I was there.
Although Chart house is a chain it’s exceptional. The views at this location are unmatched, which is why we chose it. Food came out quick and was delicious. Our server was fabulous too. Really on top of her game. I have forgotten her name but she was new to the restaurant but not to serving. Would highly recommend for drinks and apps and a view even.
Great service all around. I’d note that I would have expected more personal caution in handling of some dessert silverware given the pandemic. Food was excellent with each dish.
Also, our servers did not wear gloves and at times mask was slipped down off nose at our table.
