Service was terrible . One salad not served , dirty dishes not removed from table until new plates put down , burger burnt , took one hour 15 minutes for entree .
Only nice thing is the view .

Against my better judgement, I decided to give the Chart House another chance and was again disappointed. The ambiance is great and the view is terrific, but the service was abysmal. Took forever to take our order and the food was dropped off and we never heard from our server again. My daughter’s salad was wrong and my wife needed salt and butter. My daughter finally just ate her salad because she was hungry and my wife had to go to the hostess stand to get salt because her food was getting cold. This was a similar experience to our first visit. I had to track down a manager to get our bill so we could leave.

The food was good, but we won’t be going back. Chart House is was too expensive to have that experience.

My rib steak was a little overdone but good. Probably did not specified correctly.
The atmosphere is always great and a table of six is just right for conversation and not crammed with plates. Of course the view is good and saw the increased outside dining improvements. Hope to be back soon.

The view is fantastic, the best part. The menu gives plenty of option but the portions are very small. 3 scallops and 3 smaller shrimp? maybe 4 oz of swordfish? Good but not a good value for the price.

My spinach salad was very good. My main course was Peach-Bourbon Glazed Scallops and Shrimp. My partner has chopped salad and thought it was good but thought a better lettuce should be used in the salad. Her main course was King Crab. Both Entrees were served while we were still eating our salads. The waiter offered to return the entrees until we were ready. When he brought them back the shrimp and scallops were tepid and the crab was cold. My partner returned the crab. They brought her another plate of crab. She had cracked a crab leg to try it and determined it was cold. When they brought her the second plate she could tell it was the same crab and they had just tried to reheat it. The manager brought a third plate of crab and assured her it was new crab. We could still she the same cracked pieces on the plate. After reheating it twice it was not very tasty. They comped us with one dessert.

Excellent food presentation, taste, and good combos of entree/side dishes. Of course the view is outstanding and dolphins were “on cue” to entertain. Table distancing was COVID safe. Thanks. Only challenge area was trying to get our check so we could leave. Server was very busy.

The food was a little overpriced, but it was very good. We sat by the window and watched dolphins swimming in the water in front of us which was cool. Would definitely recommend as a great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary.

I ordered crusted Ahi Tuna. There was no Wasabi on the side and the kitchen ran out of Wasabi as per our server, Bill. The chef improvised a sauce close to Wasabi but was not tasty. The Restaurant should have informed us regarding Wasabi not being available or better yet, taken the item off of the menu.

Nice view and good food. Service left a bit to be desired. Steak had to be recooked and still had fat on it. We were celebrating our anniversary and no mention was made.

We arrived 2 minutes late and had to change the text number since I left the phone at home. The greeter never sent us a new text and after 30 minutes I needed to remind them our party of 5 was still waiting for a table. Once they realized they forgot they gave us a table in the corner. Additionally the wait time for service was long and it turned into a 2 1/2 hour meal. Once we received service the staff was very kind.

We would recommend the Chart house for all your dining needs. The location is spectacular right on the water. The food was absolutely delicious, and Garrett our server was attentive and very nice.
We eat at the Chart House whenever we visit Sarasota.
Worth the trip. Thank you.

Began with artichoke and spinach dip. Very thin and bland. Had stuffed shrimp with roasted vegetables and couscous. Shrimp was overcooked and stuffing was dry. Couscous was overdone and mealy. Dish was warm at best. Wife had mac nut mahi which was great and cooked just right.

Reservation was at 5:30... waited at the bar for a drink for 10 minutes, finally received our table and waited another 15 minutes for our server . Food was brought out by a runner, server never came back to check on us. We had wanted wine with our meal. Prime rib was fatty and Luke warm. Too bad. A beautiful location if they could get decent management. I’ve been in the hospitality industry for 30 years ant a major resort so I am flexible and understanding, but for the price of our meal and no one to offer a free drink or dessert or even an apologize , we will not recommend to others nor be back.
