Reservation was at 8:30. Was told they were behind on seating. I requested a window seat. She said it may take longer. Went to the bar to wait and bartenders were amazing. Wine was amazing. Was finally sat at 9:30. Server informs us the kitchen closes in 10 minutes so we need to make our selection. We informed him we had just got sat. Server was great. Plates had fingerprints on it. But all and all, experience was amazing.
In all fairness, it was Valentine’s Day. That being said this night had the potential to be an amazing evening and ended up to be a failure. The food was brought to the table cold. The steak was dry and my meal had hair. We gave the restaurant the benefit of the doubt and sent it back. The plate that had a small piece of hair was taken back and a new plate was made. The other plate was warmed and by the time it hit the table it was cold. The best part of the night was the bar staff prior to the meal. We ended up getting in n out for our Valentines meal, as everything else was closed. We were not charged for food, but offered nothing more than an apology. So much for holidays and this venue.
We were seated approximately 45 minutes after our reservation but it was understandable given that it was Valentine’s Day and on a Friday. Everything was amazing from the old fashioneds at the bar while we waited to the main course once we were seated. Service was amazing.
Went for Valentines Day with my wife. Seated right away. Very busy night as expected. They were going to put me in a very bad table, so we had them move us. Wife ordered steak well-done. I know that is not ideal, but she likes it that way. The steak came out medium. They fixed it fast. Other than that, the food was very good, waitress was solid and all was good. We go there regularly and it is always good. I think this is just a real busy date, so it is hard to expect perfection with a crush of diners all on same day. I recommend them.
We went Valentine's day to the Chart House. There was a special menu and their regular menu. We selected the special menu since the entree choices were great. We selected the steak and lobster, delicious. Choice of lobster bisque or green salad with candied walnuts, cheese, etc. both excellent. Plus a decadent chocolate dessert. The best part was the place was packed and we got our food timely, not rushed, and hot!! Our attendant was delightful. Wished we could have been closer to the windows, but we were able to see the marina and water.
Fantastic. Both the food and service were superb. Macadamia crusted Mahi was delicious as was the prime rib. The ambience was beautiful. One of the best restaurant meals that we have had in the past year. We can't wait to return.
Wonderful dining experience with excellent waiter
The waiter drooped the appetizer plate sending food all over the table and my wife's shoe. My prime rib was gritty almost like it had been dropped on the floor then placed back on the plate.
I brought my parents there specifically for the quiet ambiance outside(they are older) so right after we ordered food, we were quite surprised when there was a deafening band saw going about 25 feet away in the attached business. It was absolutely mindblowingly loud. The hostess did ask them to move it inside, I thank her for that. But you may want to make sure they do the loud work there inside or during non business hours. It tool a while to get seated as well but it all worked out and my parents enjoyed the food and waitress.
We were celebrating our 32nd anniversary. The restaurant staff went above and beyond to make our dinner extra special. As we approached the table, there was an anniversary card waiting and signed by all the wait team. Each person serving us congratulated us and then we saw we had personalized menus with our name and anniversary date. We were so blessed to have such a warm carry environment to share our special day. Definitely be back!
It was lovely. The food wasn't outstanding, but very good
Our server was phenomenal and food was delicious! Thank you!!!
Once again a very nice experience at the Chart House. Personalized touches recognizing wedding anniversary was appreciated.
I used to like the Charthouse Restaurants. For a while, I may have even loved the Malibu one. However those days are now long gone. We ate at the Marina Del Rey location last night. We ordered the 10 oz prime rib, the coconut fried shrimp and the plank salmon and used an open table reward certificate for a portion of my bill. The quick review: bread was not fresh (Sunday night, but still), prime rib was medium warm, salmon ok, shrimp slightly greasy, mashed potatoes bland, and the creamed spinach vegetable was good. The waiter up-charged the $30 cedar plank salmon to a king salmon without asking us. I complained about the uncharged and was interrogated by the manager. We pointed out that the cedar plank salmon listing on the menu did not offer a “better brand of salmon” and the waiter did not offer that to us. The manager took off the excess charge however we felt that the mediocre meal was made even worse by the manager’s rude attitude. I’m done. I will not patronize Chart houses again.
I thought the food was bland and lacking flavor.
Wow, the Chart House still has it!!! I have not been to one in many, many years, and was a little hesitant that it would live up to my expectations.....our server was very attentive, and food was delivered as we requested, as we wanted to enjoy the view and ambiance, and did not feel rushed at all on a Saturday night! Overall, I wold be happy to go back, and ate too much, my only regret!
Excellent restaurant and service. Been here multiple times and never disappointed!
Has something for everyone. Always a good call. I'll be back
Went to Chart House dinner so we can watch the fireworks a few steps down from the restaurant.
They have valet parking for $6 but there is a parking lot which is walking distance from the restaurant. I opted for Valet because my mom has mobility issues.
I brought my pet maltese so we were offered a seat in the outdoor patio, which I happily took since it was not very cold and they have heaters. Only service dogs are allowed inside the restaurant.
Overall the food was okay. Loved the octopus and crab cakes for appetizers but the prime rib was bit of a disappointment. A tad chewy and tasteless.
The mud cake for dessert was excellent but the lava cake was a let down because it was cooked through. No gooey chocolate when we cut into the cake.
Service was great as the valet guy and our server were super nice and attentive.
The service has been subpar the last few times. They need to step up their game
From the valet, to the host stand to the server, the staff was extremely friendly. The view was amazing as they gave us a window table for our holiday lunch. The food was delicious and well priced. We shared a burger and a seafood Cobb and they were both very tasty.
We had our first family Christmas dinner at the Chart House this evening. The restaurant manager (Dave) greeted us and was very accommodating. He also checked in halfway our meal to make sure we got excellent service. Thank you, Dave, for making our Christmas dinner a special one.
Staff was trying to put out fires .
Management was not prepared for so many people.
Kitchen staff overwhelmed and could have used an extra person or two .
Food Luke warm , and choices were rapidly disappearing !
Not their normal . 🙁
We waited for 20 minutes for someone to initially come to the table. The service and food were not very good.
This is one of our favorite places to dine. Good food, good ambience. We would especially like to recommend our waitress: Lena. Terrific person and great service. Thank you Lena for making our dining experience extremely pleasant.
It was super busy, couple of mishaps with getting cold food initially but completely understandable with how many people were in the restaurant. It was delish and Tiffany (our server) was calm as a cucumber and her service was magnificent ... OF course, I'll go back!
Excellent food, service and holiday atmosphere. Happy holidays to all.
Came to celebrate my daughter birthday on Christmas Day. The food was exceptional, our server Tiffany was so gracious, especially considering it was Christmas Day, and the ambience was beautiful. I hadn’t been here since my junior prom 30 years ago so it was nice to bring my kids to somewhere posh for the holiday. I will definitely come back, and sooner than 30 years from now!
Our waiter was good. I have been told she is from Florida.
Excellent as always. Tried the salmon cooked on a wood plank. Amazing! The scallops were very fresh. Also has a great salad bar. And the best key lime pie on the west coast.
Everything was great except that the $18 for the Bone Marrow appetizer amounted to 2 spoonfuls of bone marrow. Just silly for the price.
Went to Chart House for no reason but to eat dinner. The food and service was excellent. However, I expected a different ambiance on a Saturday night.
Wonderful cuisine and service as always.
Lena excellent server.
I'm sad to say I was so disappointed with this restaurant. I thought there would be good food and plenty of options for a vegan, gluten-free and regular diet/hungry kids, but options were limited and the portions were small. I received a salmon with 2 starches - rice and potatoes. NO VEGGIES! My daughter had the mezze platter with shrimp and the eggplant was horrible. She's had better elsewhere. The manhattan was just ok, also better elsewhere. My husband who is vegan was not able to find any protein that he could eat. Most places have tofu these days. The Impossible burger didn't say vegan so he wasn't able to get that. We will never go back and I would be recommending it.
We had a really enjoyable dinner. Food was very good; albeit, a bit expensive. Took a little longer than expected for our son’s (5 yr.) meal to arrive, since we asked for it to come out asap. But, our waitress was lovely and very attentive. The ambiance was beyond reproach!
Always great food with wonderful service in a beautiful setting.
We fly in from West Virginia to visit family on my wife's birthday and had made reservations on line. Everything was very nice----the staff-----the food-----the atmosphere! Thanks for a very nice evening!
My brother’s birthday. My husband and I are frequent diners. My brother really enjoys the lobster and steak and requested the Chart House for his birthday dinner.
Thoroughly enjoyed it! Tiffany made his evening special with an ice cream cake with his name on the plate and also a handwritten birthday card with everyone’s signatures. How special was that for him???
I’m ever so grateful that this night was made sooo special for him!! Thank you!!!!
Fantastic service, food was excellent, view was beautiful.
If you want a break from cooking on the holidays, I absolutely recommend trying the Chart House. The service and food was great. And I was impressed with how quickly they prepared the food with a packed house. Fabulous experience.
