    Would really have liked a window table but were seated in a booth. When a window table opened up way before we got our food we were told we couldn’t move. No one sat at that table the whole time we were there. It was our 51st anniversary and my husband spent the whole dinner wondering why we couldn’t sit by the window! Not what I had planned!!!

    Rude incompetent staff. Hostess was so off putting. We didn’t like the first table but wanted to relocate to another table that was open. She gave us some sorry excuse about not overloading the server, which I understand having been in the business for 25 years prior. No one else was waiting and it was the end of the evening. The restaurant was winding down. It was as if the hostess just wanted to make us wait for even questioning the original table. I asked to speak to a manager prior to eventually getting sat. Then a few minutes later the manager comes up and says, “I heard there was a problem…”. Without even asking much about the incident, she just rattles off these excuses to support their choice. I guess I should have guessed that the management was just as incompetent as the hostess. Poor leadership…what do you expect will flow downstream. I was entertaining guests from out of town so rather than ruin the evening I just smiled at this sorry excuse for a manager and let it all go. Thankfully we built a good relationship with our server who was more than polite and professional, We made the most of the rest of the evening, even though the food was subpar for how much you paid. And of course at the end of the dinner, we got no compensation for how the evening started out. What a surprise…. It’s unfortunate how downhill The Charthouse has become. It use to be 30 years ago a nice fine dining establishment, now it’s nothing but poor quality food served by inexperienced staff housed under nice ambiance. I will never go back again.

    We were crammed into a small table with a partial view and lots of foot traffic even though I had made reservations well in advance. Our waiter just had too many tables to cover well. My glass of wine was delivered after I had mostly finished my meal

    Amazing service from the moment we walked in, until we left. Greeted immediately, found our reservation right away. They were backed up, so we had to wait a bit, but well worth it. They put us in a booth as requested so we could socially distance a bit more. Servers Damian and Rutger (understudy) were fantastic, responsive, friendly, and fun. Food was phenomenal. My wife had filet, I had sea bass. Impeccable. No notes. 10 stars. Werk! One thing. There’s no outside seating. The tables are spaced fairly well, but do keep this in mind. Asking for a booth gets you some social distance and you get to enjoy this 👏🏽PHEN👏🏽OM👏🏽EN👏🏽AL Place! Bone Apple Teeth!!!

    The service was great, main course was delicious! I was a little disappointed with the clam chowder soup, I like my soup piping hot as if it was just poured right from a hot pot, but it was lukewarm. I know some people prefer their soup temp on the warm side, I like mine HOT. The soup was tasty though. The dessert was the best! They said ‘mini’ it was large enough to share for two!!! But of course I ate my own share. Overall, it was a very nice dining experience. I would return the next time I am in Monterey.

    The bread and calamari kimchee were amazing! Lobster Bisque flavor was very good, but consistency was watery and almost room temperature. Entrees were a mixed bag. Shrimp was overcooked with the linguini dish. Prime rib was perfect. Blackened salmon had a mushy consistency. Key Lime Pie was okay. Had to keep asking for utensils and napkins.

    Service was terrible. Our waitress "went on break" for approx 30 minutes, during which time only runners were working the floor. One brought our meals out - two meals hot, two of them dead cold. We had no silverware. Asked for silverware, did not receive any. Asked someone else, did not receive any. Got silverware myself, from a neighboring table. Sat for at least 20 minutes after finishing meal, before waitress came back on the floor. By then, we had been in the restaurant for an hour and 30 minutes. while we ate, no one ever asked how our meal was, or asked if we needed anything this entire time. The waitress was apologetic, and was very nice. However, we spent $400 - yes $400 on a four-person pre-fixe lunch - cold food, no service, not acceptable. Will never ever go back.

    We were at chart House for Mother’s Day lunch, food was very good as always exception of little discolored spinach on my salad. Service was great and GM came around the table twice to make sure everything was to our satisfaction which I thought was very nice.
