Food was good. Service was good. It’s a nice casual place.
My husband had the oysters Rockefeller and said they were fantastic. We shared the shrimp, crab, avocado mango stack, so delicious. The mango sticky rice was delicious as well. My husband had the asparagus and said it was really really good.
My salmon was good and his steak was good too.
The only negative I have is that we weren’t told about the specials. We weren’t told about the lava cake that had to be ordered a head of time due to it taking 30 mins to bake until we were given the dessert menu.

Usually we LOVE it there, but we were a little disappointed this time. We ordered clams casino... out of forks. Granddaughter order king crab.. out of crab. Stuffed shrimp for my husband and I ... shrimp really tiny. I think they were supposed to be larger... and they were over cooked, really hard.

We went for a belated Valentine's dinner. We were really looking forward to a special meal. My wife ordered the waiter's favorite - scallops and shrimp. The food was cold when it arrived and had to be sent back to the kitchen. I ordered the prime rib which was very average. Something I could have had at a much lesser restaurant. My wife's food was good when it returned but by then I was more than halfway done with my meal. Not very romantic watching your partner eat while you wait. Nothing was done to compensate us for a below average meal/experience.

Three days earlier we had a much better meal at Ock even though they undercooked my ribeye and had to take it back because the manager said it was not cooked correctly. At least they took the meal off the bill.

Unfortunately, the Chart House was a big disappointment to us.

Seat was great by a window. Service was terribly slow and way beyond "relax and enjoy your evening". Waiter not experienced or capable. Brought me the wrong wine, a red, after I had ordered a white he had recommended! My food was undercooked even though we waited and waited for it. I ended up having to eat after my spouse was done. I never send back my food for just this reason but it was inedible. We finally got to order dessert and after waiting too long once again the waiter brought just my spouse's and said they were out of what I had ordered. Then asked if I would like something else? How could all this happen at such an established restaurant? It is just too well known and expensive a restaurant to be such a failure of an evening. One nice night we finally get to go out and we wish we hadn't gone to The Chart House.

We had not been to the Chart House for a couple of years. Not because we had a bad experience before but more of we did not think about going there. We had a wonderful evening the food was terrific and the service was very good. Was a very busy night so did not expect perfect service but was attentive none the less. Somewhat pricey but worth it. Will hopefully remember to come back soon.

Our server hardly came by to see if we needed anything so she missed out on a larger overall tip.She ignored us once food was served we sat 20 min and could not get another drink so we didn’t bother with dessert either.
My husband asked for a medium rare steak he got a medium well,it was dry being Valentines Day to wait in another steak would have been time consuming but we weren’t even offered a discount of any kind for the trouble and we only come up a couple times a year so it was disappointing.

Hate to do this. Just moved back to the Genesee area and we like fine dining. We were seated quickly. Took a while for someone to offer drinks, Continually had to ask for water. Took them 30 minutes to remove the extra place setting. Wife was not provided a knife, so we grabbed one prior to taking it away. Server asked if we wanted bread. Yes. I ordered salad bar, which was new for me & my wife a salad. Bread never came and server didn't inform me I would have to get my own plate for salad. It wasn't obvious. They were not stacked. I told her it would have been nice to know this. I asked for the bread again. She said it was being cooked, all while we watched other tables being served bread. I ordered steak, medium and it came back pretty damn well done. My wife had to ask for the sauce that was to come with her dinner. Steak knife was not delivered for steak. That was fixed, still no bread. The wife had a horrible Manhattan and she laughed, having spent her youth as a bartender. It was not made with bourbon, but straight up Crown, with color. We never got asked if we wanted another drink, or providing a wine for dinner. It became funny after a while as we checked everything off. I even stopped her to ask how was the bread coming after we sat for an hour. She said, "I'm sorry thats my fault." and she never brought it after that. Just fantastic. She did ask if we wanted some dessert, which by that time we were ready to leave. We wanted a quiet dinner night together and we ended up discussing the poor service. We did tell the Manager and he said it was her first night and she only had two tables. I felt bad then, but really, why leave someone unsupervised on her first night. The steak being extremely overcooked and the drink, were not her fault. But overall for a $125+ dinner for two, it won't be my first choice. We were used to table 6 downtown, so we might have to suck it up and take the drive to Denver from now on.

The food was very good. The service was good up to the end then it went all to hell. We waited for 20 minutes or more for the waiter to ask how were things & if we wanted desert. Then another 5 minutes or more waiting for the check. I will return. It wasn't so bad that I'm not coming back but it sure was a damper on what otherwise could have been a good night out.

Awful. I requested a window table when making the reservation, got the 3rd row. I ordered a steak medium well, it came out solid red which appeared to be medium. The server noticed and immediately took it to be further cooked. Which was great, except the steak didn’t come back out for 15-20 minutes, once my date had already finished her entree, since it would have gotten cold. When my steak finally came back out, i decided it was no longer needed since it took so long. I currently work at an upper class steakhouse in Denver and any manager would happily greet and speak with that table upon this situation. However, no management or for this instance, no one offered to make this situation right. The customer service was awful. When the bill came out, the server said that the steak was removed, I sure hope so given that I never ate it and sent it back to the kitchen. I understand that mistakes occur, but the customer service should have been much improved. Awful experience.

We had a trainee for a server. While she tended to be in a trainee mode to other tables, she was our primary server. The main server came to our table only when the food was served/check delivered. We ordered cocktails and I asked for a lemon twist, not olives. I did not say anything, but that is a detail not to be overlooked. She was not well versed/knowledgeable in cocktails or wine. While other servers mentioned drink specials and dinner specials I had to ask (she just asked Are you ready to order?) Our appetizer had overripe avocados (not servers fault); the salad, bisque, and dinners were delicious (the rice with the stuffed shrimp was a little dry and warm). all in all a good experience and she was appreciative of our patience. Luckily due to the weather I overhead that there were 15 cancelled reservations--it could have been a long night for her and the guests.

Service was excellent! Teresa our server was very knowledgeable on the menu and recommendations. She was very attentive to our needs stopping by numerous times to check on our needs. The menu is on the high end of our usual dining spots, but worth every penny. The shrimp, crap, mango, avocado stack appetizer was awesome.

The food was excellent and service was good had to get the servers attention for a drink refill and it was cold in our area. The server said she knew and would let the manager know but said we were in the warm part and another area was really cold...we went through that area as we were leaving and everyone was eating with a coat on...not what would be expected for a restaurant of this caliber...we also were not told of the specials that night which I thought was odd...will be back but I did expect more. I also would have expected a manager to come by after we said it was cold...not sure if the server made anyone aware of the comment...

Super disappointed with our visit. Dinner took 2.5 hours, which is crazy on a Thursday night. It took forever for our server to come to the table to start. Then we ordered a bottle of wine only to find out 15 minutes later they were out if it and then she left so we could decide on another. Another 10 mins later she came back and left to grab the new bottle. I didn't need that long to decide and I was eager to order. We finally ordered and it took a really long time to get out meals. Sadly, the steak was overcooked. We didn't bother complaining since everything was taking a really long time. For how expensive this place is I expect better. I would way rather drive down the hill and hit up the capital grille or shanahans because they're always spot on.

I ordered a salad and soup and i went to where they make the Caesar salad and was served exactly thT. The waitress then said i had to be charged the $17.95 for salad bar, not the $8 for a Caesar salad( because I went up there) To compensate she gave me cantaloupe and pineapple to go.
It took so long to pay my bill that I had to get up and find a manager.

Disappointing to say the least. Charthouse is our Go-To, semi-elegant dining place. For appetizers, we had 4 and 1/2 fried asparagus (why 1/2?-- embarrassing) and our usual hummus but it came with no plantains (we were going for a veggie outing, we got more pita after we complained but would have changed order if we thought there were no plantains ); the glass of wine took a good 20 minutes to come to the table each time we ordered, the salad bar had no lettuce when I arrived to fill my plate. We came at 7:30, ordered nothing that needed to be cooked but the fried asparagus and did not get away until 9:30. The service was excruciatingly slow.

The shrimp was tiny and so not meaty at all. The prime rib served was over cooked and the aujou was very salty. The sea bass was delicious. One good dinner out of four isn't very good. Dessert of Creme brûlée and apple dry cherry crisp was very good.
We will try other restaurants. This one is too expensive for the food delivered.
We were hoping it would be like Cafe Diva in Steamboat Springs.

I wanted to express my disappointment at my recent dinner at the Chart House Restaurant in Genesee. I was taking out my girlfriend for her Christmas present and had prepared weeks in advance for this occasion. We do not dine out often; so I have been saving my money for this special event. I booked the table through the Chart House website on Open Table and also called the restaurant to create a custom menu that read “Happy New Year Gemma!” to put a personal touch on the evening.

Upon arrival, we were brought in and taken to our table. There was no custom menu to be found, so I went to the hosting stand and asked if there was any chance they misplaced them. They explained that they could not find my reservation, and just sat us down anyway. They apologized and offered to print up new menus with the message, and said it would take 5 minutes. I never saw or heard from the host / hostess again.

My girlfriend ordered a filet and I ordered the House Special “Prime Rib”. When the food came out, my girlfriend’s food was perfect, but the prime rib did not look like it had even been cooked. I have waited tables for 2+ years, and have never seen a steak that cold. Our waitress noticed my shock when I bit in, and offered to return the prime rib and swap for a filet.

On top of the lost menus, cold prime rib, I was not pleased with my experience at the Chart House. I have been to this location several times, and have always had an A+ dining experience. I have no idea what happened in the kitchen, but I cannot believe they approved that prime rib to go out.

Our waitress, Keliani was the only positive experience about this dining event. She was every attentive and supportive. I made sure to tip her 20%, due to her excellent service.

I wanted to create a special evening for my girlfriend, but was surprised how unprofessional the experience felt.

Had a great experience for a Saturday night date with my bride of 24 years. Our server was Jake- very helpful with suggestions; great guy. Meal was leisurely paced as fit our needs. Each course was delicious and well presented. Started with the Shrimp, Crab, Avocado & Mango appetizer. Amazing- could have made a meal on this alone. Chop salad followed and was large enough to share. My Bride had the Mac Nut Mahi- Divine! I had the Ahi Tuna special and would eat it daily; perhaps the best tuna I have ever had! Jake recommended the Molten Chocolate desert even before we ordered dinner, as it took 30 minutes to prep. We went for it and while we were full before it arrived, we powered through and managed to eat it anyway. Well paired with fresh made ice cream. Delicious meal; can't wait to go back.

Unfortunately our experience wasn’t anything we expected. We had a party of 8 adults and 1 toddler, and had 2 servers, we were there for almost 3 hours, and our tab was about $350. We felt like even with 2 servers it was very difficult to get someone’s attention, my husband had asked for A1sauce towards the end of his meal, for the filet mignon that wasn’t good(hence needing the A1) and they never came back with anything, leaving him with a half eaten cold steak by the time they did remember, to which he didn’t even eat any more of it. It took them multiple times to get our tab right, charging too much or not enough. And we left feeling as though WE were the ones causing the inconvenience for the mistakes they were making. Unfortunately we won’t be eating at this ChartHouse again.

This was a very disappointing experience. Our food was not worth the cost. Our waiter was inattentive and uninterested.

We will not be returning to The Chart House- we have enjoyed dining there for nearly 20 years, so this is very disappointing.
