I met a special person here who drove 4 hours. I wanted to impress and relied only on the Google star rating. I do hate giving terrible reviews but this experience was terrible. The food presentation was definitely not deserving of the star reviews.
My guests steak was not cooked to order.
3 star service at best.
A man dressed in a suit (I’m assuming was the manager) kept walking by talking to tables not noticing once we were there with empty glasses.
Save your money and find a local spot where you are noticed. This place is for tourists.

Service was good
Food terrible
I am allergic to garlic & I couldn’t have any of the turkey dinner & was very disappointed.
I was offered the fish but with no sauce.
I got the magi
Cane all dry & overcooked with plain green beans that had no Flavor.
I had written in & called restaurant too saying it was my cousins 70th bday & nothing was done for that.

Thanksgiving dinners out can always be a bit up for grabs. All of our dinners were superb as was the dessert. Server was super friendly and just the right amount of attentiveness. We will definitely be back next time we are in the Monterey area.

They did not seem yo be prepared for the Thanksgiving rush. The service was slow. My turkey dinner was extremely salty. I did not notice until I left that I was overcharged. Pie was included in the dinner and for some reason, I was charged for one piece of pie. I have gone before for Thanksgiving dinner and was much happier the previous years with the food and service.

Delicious Thanksgiving dinner. Friendly and knowledgeable wait staff made the experience even better. We are long time Monterey Chart House customers because we have consistently excellent food and lemon drop martinis.

I was told ahead of time that there would be a vegetarian offering to the holiday menu. Asking for it caused confusion and meant I had to pay a la cart. Then my salad came with something gritty in it that tasted like dirt. Assistant manager insisted it wasn’t dirt. So did the manager (both seemed to think it was ok so long as it wasn’t dirt). In the end got my veggie burger comped. Pecan pie excellent. Server very good. Also polite and helpful. Management needs training in what to do when something goes wrong.

The food was great! We always like the ambiance. The service was spotty and our server was on his break so I am sure that reflected his and the person covering. That said, we will be back and enjoy the

We came on Thanksgiving and were seated in the elevated area near the kitchen. I loved the food and the helpful service Julius provided. My family members enjoyed the experience too. I love the view from the lower seating area and will ask for lower Seating next visit.

Food excellent, atmosphere was wonderful… The only request was to sit near the window overlooking the ocean… we were seated at a nice booth but not near the location I had asked for. Unfortunately this was our engagement dinner and it really was important.

Food was not as good as it has been in the past at Chart House. I've been eating at Chart House for many years and they seem to be charging a lot more for less quality. The restaurant is beautiful, as is the view, but service is just ok and the limited menu is not impressive at all.

Took my nieces there to celebrate a birthday. I’m local but had not yet dined at CH. It was a great evening. Service was so friendly and food was delicious. A little birthday dessert with a candle made the occasion extra festive. Will visit again! Thanks CH!
