Been going to the Chart House about three to four times a year. Wonderful food and exceptional service. We have taken friends with us for dinner on more than one occasion. Everyone felt food was great service outstanding.
There was an add about a free appetizer, up to $15.00, with 2 entrée purchases. We were charged $ 17.50 + tax for a Shrimp & Crab Stack. I went to the restaurant next day and complained. "he" took a copy of the receipt and got my phone numbers. I have not heard anything since.
We ended up ha inch dinner in the bar, right in front of the fireplace. Service was excellent, food was spot on and of course we enjoyed the salad bar. Always consistent with their service and food and what stood out to us was the friendly valet who was the first person we encountered and the last person who thanked us and said goodbye to us. Thanks for making our anniversary a special evening.
Very good food and service. I try to stop in on every visit.
They were short on servers For a 6:00 reservation we had to wait , even though the restaurant was 3/4 empty, It took 2 hours, even though we had no salads or appetizers. My grandsons over priced mac and cheese had an odd taste and was watery. I would have sent back , but no one checked on us. By the end of the meal , it was too late. Had to wait quite a bit , for a pre ordered dessert.
We had an excellent waiter although we were a bit put off by his nose ring. The food was ok but nothing special especially for the price. The prices are high and the scallops which I usually get were small, much smaller than before. I think 3 scallops and 3 shrimp with a very small amount of rice and veggies for $38 was very expensive. Not sure this is my favorite place anymore. I had a couple of discounts but I am not sure how they were deducted and they did not show up on the tally, just the final bill.
Charming environment with a great menu. They even had Port wine which many places do not have. We had lobster dinners to celebrate an anniversary. A bit pricey, so it is good for a celebration/special occasion.
I have eaten there several times. My last visit, March10, was an exception.
The food was not hot. The waiter kindly brought us another, hot serving of potatoes.
There was a glitch in the kitchen which delayed the food service a bit. The waiter explained the cause of the delay. Soon we were served.
Waiter was excellent--attentive to our needs, professional.
Surprising because it was a slow night.
Always go for special occasion. Never disappointed in the meal and service. Wait staff exceptional! Overall you’re in for a wonderful experience.
The fish was top notch. Had Chilean sea bass with an avocado mango salsa recommended by the bar tender and it was off the hook. Clarke the bartender knows what he's doing. Take his recommendations on the cuisine and drinks to match.
Service was very very slow tonight. No one at the host stand for 10 mins to even check in. Entrees took 1.25 hrs to come out.
I have always had a great experience at the Charthouse Redondo Beach and Dana Point which made me go to the Marina Del Ray location. I liked that they prepared a special printed menu as it was my daughter's birthday. Other than that, I would say that the overall experience was sub par. Thsi is my second time at the Marina Del Ray location and the first time was not good so i decided to give them a second try to give them the benefit of the doubt. I was wrong. The food took 35 minutes to arrive. It was only 1 NY steak, 2 broiled fish and a pasta dish. The NY steak ordered was medium rare but we got a medium well and it was tough. My daughter did not want to send it back as she was concerned that it would take about the same amount of wait time. She did not enjoy it as she did not want to inconvenience anyone. At the end of the meal, i told the server about it and she got the steak taken off the bill, but this is not the point. My daughter did not enjoy her meal.
We have always enjoyed the salad bar at the other locations as they are always well stocked. However, this location is low or empty almost everytime. I have to wait several minutes for someone to come by who works the salad bar for things that are empty. 3 times the staff brought the things to my table. Its good that they will bring them to me but that is not the point. A salad bar should have ingredients ready.
The server was helpful but she can't do anything about the speed of the food, the correct temperature of the meat or the salad bar stock.
Overall, it was not a pleasant dinner experience.
Went to dinner with Mom. Wonderful quiet experience. Alvin, the manager was very attentive and Luis was extraordinary!
The food took for ever almost 2 hours to serve but the waitress was excellent.
Very pleasant dinner. Food was excellent. Service was very good. Not crowded so not se level was low. Great view of the harbor.
Quiet, scenic, good food and service. Very satisfied.
Good location. Food was fine but not great.
The restaurant over booked reservations and we had to wait fo our table, they were short of staff, the food was fine and our server was excellent
The wife and I enjoyed ourselves... she was really impressed with my choice of restaurants
They didn’t have their regular menu because it was Valentines weekend. Couldn’t order some of the things We liked off the regular menu. Should of offered option to order off either menu. Disappointed.
The service was extremely slow. Our server Jake did everything he could, felt bad for him heard a lot of other customers complaining. Only had one bar tender. Took 20 minutes to get our drinks. Must of been short in the kitchen to. Was probably a good 30 minutes from the time we ordered to the time we got our meal. We normally go to the Chart House in Dana Point and never have had any issues. Will just go there from now on
Always loved eating here..but it was extra special taking my sweetheart. The staff made it a memorable experience. Thanks..
Food okay. Waitress sweet but not up to par for this restaurant. Acted like they could not do a vegetarian option at first. Then disappeared for nearly an hour...
Was a nice evening with great service. The food was good.
It was a good Valentine’s Day spot with good ambiance and good food.
Overall it the evening was great. We enjoyed the way the food was prepared to our requests. The service was ok, slow some times, but with the restaurant being full, it was understandable for the delays.
Great ambiance on the water. Food was fresh and delicious.
Food was good but service was slow for drinks and bread
I went there with my husband for Valentines Day, and we really enjoyed ourselves! Great food, great service and great atmosphere.
This would have been a great night except for the fact that there was a water leak from the ceiling right onto our table. It got the menu wet as well as the table cloth. We were moved to another table and comped an appetizer for the inconvenience but for a $200.00 meal, I felt it could have been a little bit more. I hope the leak was fixed and no one else got wet or rained on.
Everything was perfect. Except for our seating. Where we sat, there was a cold draft because of the door opening. Oh and it was just a little bit to dark. Kind of hard to read the menu.
They doubled up tables making it very tight,uncomfortable and noisy due to extra tables
Service was slow and they switched servers on us midway thru causing confusion
Food was good small portions
Food was so good. It always usually is but it was exceptionally good on Vday me and my husband kept talking about how good it was the following day.
I took my girlfriend here for her Birthday. There is a great atmosphere inside. The Salad bar was fresh and there was plenty to choose from. The caviar was delicious and so was the food. We split the Kimchi Calamari and it was amazing. I had the Dynamite Sea Bass and enjoyed it very much. We will definitely be going back when it is daylight and enjoy views of the marina.
Service was very slow and the restaurant was not half empty.
The drinks, the food and the ambiance were wonderful. We certainly will return.
Not like the other locations I’ve been to in the past.
Beautiful relaxing view but service was slow for a small lunch crowd.
I was taken to the Chart House for my birthday exactly 1 year ago and had an AWESOME experience. So I decided to take a friend for his this year, but not the same experience. I order the Lobster bisque and it was delish with the scallops for my main dish. He ordered some type of tune it was done in a couple different way that was the only thing he and I had together with a Ribeye stake as his main dish. The tuna appetizer upset both of us with me resulting to once on the way home and all day Saturday. Not a happy birthday after all.
Great food, service and view, and we could hear each other.
