    From the moment we arrived we were treated to very hospitable service. We were taken to a window seat as requested and my wife was kindly wished a happy birthday. Our server, Genevieve was prompt in helping us and guided our decisions in ordering. She had excellent menu knowledge and a very appealing manner in her service. Jimmy the manager was an exemplary host and made us feel like the most special people in the joint as he took much time talking to us and offering advice on what might make our short stay in town extra special. Two professionals. for sure.

    The prime rib was very tender and tasty. The salad bar was very good and the Riesling was great. We got special desserts because it was our anniversary. We come several times a year for special occasions. A personal favorite of ours as we got engaged at another Chart House location in Los Gatos 43 years ago.

    This restaurant rests on its laurels. The Mac nut mahi was dry, overcooked and served with a limp tasting sauce and mushy rice that was billed as sticky rice. The salad bar used to be amazing. It was messy and not well stocked. The service was good Natalie! But the noise in the restaurant was loud. Hard to manage a good meal with 2 off 3 things not done well.

    Good wine and cocktail selection. Very accommodating staff. Food left a lot to be desired. Everyone was overly sauced and poor presentation. No bussers so empty glasses sat for a long time as did our finished plates. Mac Nut Mahi was overly sauced and soggy. The Macs were not toasted enough so it was soggy. Server was nice and helpful but needed assistance. Good wine snd cocktail. Great kids menu and coloring paper.

    The chef was very helpful, tailoring our dishes As best he could due to significant food sensitivities. His service was very attentive and appreciated. Our server was Not around very much so we would’ve liked more attentiveness there - The food was well cooked, well seasoned, and we deeply appreciate the chefs efforts on our behalf.  The Lighting in the restaurant was subtle and not glaring, which was deeply appreciated. Tables were not right on top of each other so we did feel like we had a little bit of space, which still feels good with cold/covid and flu season.  Would’ve preferred a table by the window, though by the time we were there it was dark and I wouldn’t know what we would be looking at anyway lol - The ceiling is a very interesting design with several layers, which also gives the restaurant some real height and helps with any sense of claustrophobia one might have. The noise level was very reasonable. I have to work hard to hear each other that was also They need a few zinfandels by the glass or at least a couple, because there was a lack of that, but overall it was a good experience.

    Way overpriced for what you get. Small portions. Prime rib was cut way to thin. No creative seafood preparations, or sauces. Will not be returning. Chart house is not as good as it was years ago.

    Great view of the Monterey Bay. ordered the coconut shrimp and my husband had the new York steak, both were cooked to perfection. We also had the salad bar. It was very fresh. Our waiter was Damien. He was attentive and very knowledgeable regarding both the menu and the wine list. We will ask for Damien next time

    One of our go to restaurants. The view is amazing, right on the water. The wait service is excellent. The manager is very personal and easy to communicate with. The check in desk is just so, so! They are not smiling or seem to be that happy and seem put out when you ask questions! Did not communicate well!

    I have eaten in this particular Chart House for over 30 years. It has NOT improved since being acquired by Landry's. Our server was excellent, our food just average, reheated not freshly prepared. Martinis were stirred rather than shaken and were served warm. AND, there were too many tables. Evidenced by the difficulty of walking to our table.

    My steak was excellent but the fish we ordered was a little “fishy” and our side of asparagus was stringy and not special. We had to move tables because it was so loud but the crème brûlée was awesome. A little expensive for what we got.
