    Another really lovely experience at The Chart House in Monterey, California. The food was cooked to perfection, portions were generous, and the prices were very reasonable. The service was top-notch as well. We will definitely be coming back!

    We have always loved the Chart House. The food is great and the view of the ocean and harbor (if you can get a window table--reserve in advance) is also great. My only criticism is that during the pandemic they eliminated the salad bar, which was the best salad bar I have ever seen, I mean really extensive and unique--time to bring it back! But go if you have the chance.

    Made a reservation on Open Table and was seated before the reservation time. Garrett our waiter was excellent! Our water was always full and he was very attentive. We had the Shrimp and Scallops Parrilla and Bronzed Salmon and Shrimp. Both were DELICIOUS!! Garrett even brought us a complimentary Mud pie, which was awesome, for our 45th wedding anniversary. We had a table with an ocean view to top off our evening.

    Food very good, but had to wait 50mins after our scheduled reservation time to get a table. Front of house staff did not how to communicate well with the waiting diners. Not sure that they were happy in their work. It came across that they didn’t care and there was no direction given to them from superiors to help them cope. Table staff seemed caring.

    Came here with my family to celebrate a birthday. I wanted to love this restaurant because the ambiance was lovely with sights of the ocean view, but the wait for our table took almost an hour. I had booked a reservation in advance and it took quite some time to both get seated and also receive our food. First round of cocktails were good but it seemed like there was a change of bartender because the second round of drinks tasted completely different. After taking our food order, the server asked us about dessert and recommended to order ahead since it takes 30 minutes to prepare. We took his word on it, yet we still waited quite a long time for the dessert. I know the time of our food and quality of our cocktails wasn’t our server’s fault so I will comment that his service and attentiveness were on point! Hope this helps anyone planning to dine here.

    Damian our server was good. He gave us recommendations and always had a smile. He went about and beyond. We observed him taking an interest in the family next to our table. He took the time to talk to the kids. That is awesome to see someone that is busy but still take time to acknowledge a family. Good job Damian.

    We celebrated our 50th Anniversary at the Chart House and we’re treated like royalty. We were given a seat by a window overlooking Monterey Bay and Seals provided a floor show cavorting and leaping through the kelp. The food was excellent. My spouse enjoyed lobster bisque and a Shrimp and Scallop entree and I enjoyed a Caesar salad and grilled Mahi. Everything was fresh tasting and well prepared. Service was also excellent! We had a grand celebration.

    I asked for a window table in my reservation and they brought us to another table so I told them I had asked for a window table and they brought us to a corner window that we saw the building next door. My son and I ordered the filet and they were both over cooked so much we couldn’t eat them. Also took 2 hours from ordering to pay. Lots of time sitting and waiting. Husband did enjoy his fish he ordered. Very disappointed from the price you pay. Our meal for 3 was over $200. That’s why I think the food and request for a great view was disappointing.

    Reservations are a must. Come early so that you can get a window table overlooking the ocean. The blackened king salmon, garlic mashed potatoes, sizzling mushrooms, asparagus and lava cake are served piping hot and are absolutely delicious. The servers are friendly and really make you feel welcome.
