    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 here for Mother's Day. Service was super slow. Our server plated our food on a different table and we had to wait that much longer for our food again. Also a server who was covering for our server seemed put out when we asked for more bread and drinks. For what we paid to eat here you would think that service we be more on point. We saw a family get up and leave because the service was so slow. However, It's a beautiful place to have a meal

    Thank goodness for our wonderful server Mark. Horrible service in the bar, it wasn’t even busy. We were almost going to leave. Once we got to our table everything started to improve. Mark gave us great service and turned our evening around. Will go back but will have pre-dinner drinks somewhere else.

    Dinner was very good. Service was excellent. I was surprised that each dinner did not come with a vegetable. My husband's fish dinner came with Potatoe and a vegetable but none of the meat dinners had veggies. Otherwise, we were very pleased.

    This being our first time, after getting an ocean view table. The waiter by the name of Mark was great in providing insight as to the best dishes. Which by the way the food was on point. The avocado shrimp mango stack is amazing. I have to say it’s better than other restaurants in the same area.

    When we were on our way to be seated. We were passing behind a waitress taking an order. Small isle. When was right behind her her she backed up. I bounced off her almost falling on someone sitting at table. She did not apologize. Very embarrassing. But. Our food and our waiter was excellent. We will return. Just wanted to he waitress to know she shouldn’t just back up in very small spaces without looking behind her.

    I have been going to the chart house for years. This was the first time I was somewhat disappointed with the service and food. I had the salmon which was okay and my husband ordered the prime rib. which he also thought was just okay. Looks like the menu is very limited. No crab which was disappointing. it took them a while to get to our table. they were serving folks around us. but once they got to us, the service was good.
