The views were beautiful, the service excellent, food was outstanding, but we were two people seated at at table and had difficulty carrying on a conversation because the noise level required us to shout at each other in order to be heard.

Made reservations, had to wait 45 minutes on arrival. I decided to take a table outside, just to find out it was first to come. The waiter never refilled the water, it took 1.25 hours to get our food even though we ordered it as soon as we were seated.

They made us feel very special on our 18th wedding anniversary. Custom menus, a hand-written card signed by the staff and we had a spectacular view of the river. The food was delicious, especially the chocolate lava cake.

We certainly enjoying dining at the Chart House and celebrating my and my friends 70th birthday. From the printed menus with Birthday Wishes, the attentive service, the view, the delicious food and dessert, our special day will always be remembered and appreciated. Thank you to The Chart House and our servers for the evening.

We were early and lady in charge said "it'll just be a moment" That moment turned out to be over an hour. If we had known it was going to be that long, being a diabetic with no food since breakfast, we would have asked for crackers to get through. Since the hostess was not truthful it became very stressful.

Another great Mother's Day spent at Chart House Restaurant - Melbourne. Seated quickly. Service was good. A little slow in the kitchen on this day as it seemed longer to be served than previous visits. The salad bar was replenished regularly. But what you really come for is the atmosphere and the excellent view of the Indian River.

When I booked this reservation, we booked thinking it was a brunch for Mother’s Day. While we were a bit disappointed in the menu, because it was a dinner menu at 11:00 AM, the food was delicious.

Overall the ChartHouse was lovely as usual but we waited 30+minutes for our reserved table then 10 more minutes for our waiter to just greet us. Not what we had hoped for also we were not told about the specials which we later heard him telling them to other tables. But our food was good and we had a lovely time despite the rough start.

Heard about this place when I moved here. Had a reservation for 7pm on Saturday but we showed up at 5:30 hoping they'd seat us early. It was happy hour, so we waited at the bar and got some $7 mojitos that were really good (I make my own crazy good mojitos, so I'm not an easy win there). After about 10 minutes, they brought us to a nice table overlooking the water - didn't expect that!

Overall it is pricey, yes, but it's worth it. Get the Ahi tuna with ginger soy sauce. It's ridiculous.

Went for my birthday, service and food was great. The views are beautiful, be sure to go while it’s still light out. The noise level was pretty loud. We had a table of 14 next to us and it was hard for my husband and I to have a conversation because of the noise.

This is one of my favorite restaurants. It is always consistent both with service and food. THIS visit was not what I had expected. We ordered fish and chips. The fish was fine but the potatoes were shoestring and not great. The salad bar was excellent as usual.
Our server was fine until she was assigned to a table for 12. We just didn’t see her much. We just wanted our check.

Very slow service - arrived for 6:00 pm reservation and left at 9:00 pm. Apparently kitchen and bar were understaffed and we had a new young waiter. He was very nice and apologetic but it did ruin the experience for our party of five.

Started with bus boy not trained on how to pour water with ice from pitcher. Waited at least 15 min n once seated and then told we couldn’t order early dining because it was 6:05 even though we were seated well before 6:00 pm.

Once manager was consulted that was corrected but took 20 minutes to get drinks. We ordered and proceeded to salad bar but had to ask for the bread which apparently was in the oven. Not good to receive the bread after you have finished your salad. Second round of drinks were ordered but again took a long time. We had 2 birthdays to celebrate and ordered desert after dinner. They offered some free chocolate cake which was very good but my cappuccino didn’t arrive until we were part way through desert. Food was very good but the timing made the experience unbearable.

The ambiance, is very warm and most welcoming. The service is stellar, from the Valet at the front door to the receptionist / hostess, to the waiter / waitress, . .. all most accommodating and the attention to every minute detail observed. I highly recommend this establishment for your very romantic and private occasions to business meetings. Because of the team assembled, and their obvious training, to serve with expertise, this is the place for experiencing a true memory of a lifetime. The cuisine . . . Everything is prepared to perfection, the attention to proportions are most generous, the detailed presentation is a delight to the eye.
I will be returning with friends and family soon, as this experience must not only be repeated. . . . it must be shared with others.

Overall experience was good, you have to valet park, no getting around it and the crew is aggresive for an extra trip. I prefer to self park and not deal with this hasel. 3 clerks working behind reservations desk, slow with getting you seated even if you have reservations. Waiter was excellent, food was good.

The food was average for a seafood specialty restaurant. The presentation was okay...my not so blackened, very small filet of mostly a neutrally tinged Mahi Mahi was accompanied by a stack of white rice, on a white plate. A sprig of something was supposed to offer color. Thank goodness for a very good optional salad bar

Took over an hour to get our food and it was only half full of people. Waitress wasn't that friendly. Very loud inside. Drinks are way over priced. $10 for 1 small mixed drink. Your pretty much paying for the view of the water.

Good service! We had a 5 PM reservation on Friday Night and we arrived on time. The front hostess had not planned to seat us until 5:30 (our name was on her roster for 5:30) but I showed her our confirmation and were able to get a table by the window. The ambiance gets 5 stars with the arrival of several leaping dolphins about 60-70 yards away! My salmon was delicious.
