They seated over 18 people behind us that was so noisy that I couldn’t even hear my wife who was sitting across from me! I’ve never had such a bad experience ever at such a fine dining establishment. I complained to the manager to only hear that she told them to quiet down as other people are in the restaurant. Totally unexceptable!!! Will never eat there again….

They print the menu daily and not just one but two bottles of wine we attempted to order were out of stock. The 3rd selection arrived after our food was delivered. The mahi was excellent and the greens were nice and crisp. After the plates were cleared our server walked past us many many times with zero eye contact and it took forever to get his attention to ask for our bill, our glasses had been empty for at least 20 mins. Clear sign that we were done with dinner. On top of it all we were sat far back into the restaurant amd it was super warm and could never feel any air circulation. Walking out we hit a cold wall of air at the bar and lobby area. Seems as if the ac was not working

My roast beef was overcooked. I sent it back. Second plate Still overcooked! Mashed potatoes hard and cold. Beef was tough and very salty. It was a birthday celebration so I didn’t want to make a scene. I won’t go back!
The waiter was excellent

My husband and I had been to the SF location for one of our anniversaries. We decided to try the one at Monterey for another anniversary! Definitely loved this location more! Food and service were amazing; Some sweet gentleman found out it was our anniversary and bought us a dessert! Will be going back.

The restaurant is beautiful. Great location!!! My fish wasn’t cooked enough. At the end of the meal the waiter did a points membership presentation. Sort of ruined the evening.

This restaurant was amazing. My wife and I went here for our 25th anniversary dinner and we were not disappointed. I mentioned in the booking note it was our 25th and they created a menu with a happy 25th anniversary and our name across the top that looked like part of the regular menu. It was an amazing gesture and a keep sake.
I asked if we could be seated next to the window overlooking the ocean and they made it happen.
The Kim Chee Calamari was absolutely amazing
They gave us a dessert just for our anniversary.
Our waiter Garrett was amazing. he was funny, and very attentive to us.
My wife and I could not have had a better night. Truly an amazing experience to remember.

Service was terrible - they appear to be trying to serve as many people as possible without staff. Food was fair. Wait staff was poor, possibly new. It was not a great experience.

When I ordered my drink the waiter indicated it might take a while to prepare and asked if I was okay waiting and I said yes and then I ordered my dessert and he mentions again it takes 30 min and I was like ok that’s fine I can wait. So 50 min go by and I follow up and they finally bring my dessert and two things - 1) I don’t know why the waiter ordered me a large besides small because I’m just one person or even bothered to ask my size preference and 2) there was a hair in itttt!! I thought it was mine but it was baked into the cake. So I showed the waiter and he brought me another one immediately… I don’t know how it was ready so fast but I had to wait like an hour earlier? Also I really wasn’t in the mood to eat it anymore so I was annoyed.

I don’t really write reviews but I’m literally THAT annoyed.

Beautiful restaurant. Wonderful hostess and bus boy staff. It appeared that our waitress forgot about us at multiple points. My husband and I selected Chart House for our one year anniversary dinner. We ordered drinks and appetizers, our appetizers arrived first then out drinks came after we had finished the appetizers. My husband ordered the King crab and was given no utensils for it. He had to ask for utensils for the crab which he was given quickly, but it was definitely long after the food had arrived. We ordered coffee and cheese cake for dessert, our cheese cake arrived frozen in the middle and we never got our coffee. These minor mishaps for our dining experience took away a little from the experience. We would still recommend this restaurant but it definitely felt like the experience fell short of our expectations.

Our dinner was a highlight of our recent trip to Monterey! We were celebrating our anniversary and they took the time to print out special menus for us acknowledging the celebration! The crab was one of the tastiest meals we’ve ever had. The view is incredible. The lava cake is to die for. Can’t wait to go back in the future!

Upon arrival we were sat at our table promptly and the service was good but we felt rushed. The filet and potatoes were very well cooked. The server told us the filet was a 30 year recipe and it did not disappoint! The mid pie and key lime were also very very worth the extra stuffing!

We really enjoyed our meal. Even at night, you can still see a beautiful view of the water from the window seats. The filet was delicious and the green beans. Great wine list as well.
