    For us everything was great. However, we were seating near the salad bar and noticed another customer going for multiple trips to the salad bar with his dirty plate! That didn't sit well with us. There was no one monitoring the salad bar to give the person a clean plate. My prime rib was great but it came rare, not medium rare. But, that's ok it's just that my wife didn't like looking at it!

    My wife and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at Chart House and we had a wonderful time and amazing food. I highly recommend the coconut shrimp for starters and the Prime Rib with a side of lobster, it was so delicious. The entire staff was incredibly friendly and made us feel like honored guests. I am so glad we chose Chart House and plan to come back again and again.

    Thanksgiving dinner was almost as good as when we were children eating at a large family holiday gathering. In other words, the meal was absolutely excellent! The Chart House is set in an almost unbelievably beautiful place with an unrestricted view of the Monterey Bay. We will likely go again next year.

    Went for the thanksgiving meal - given how busy the staff was, we had a solid experience. Friendly and helpful staff and the thanksgiving meal was rock solid. We also ordered non thanksgiving meals, and they were good but not exceptional and were lacking their normal sides. That would be fine but the menu did not reflect that substitutions would be made. The farmers bar was worth the up charge. Full salad bar with some nice extras like caviar with its normal accomplishments.

    The dinner was not very good. I usually love chart house so was disappointed. Worst pumpkin pie I have ever had! The noise level was crazy! We were seated directly under another family. We could hear their whole conversation and even had a hard time even hearing our conversation. Was super disappointed with the whole experience. Waiter was nice but too busy to give good service .

    All the food was over salted We had lobster bisque, filet mignon and the shrimp and scallops- all way too salty Lava cake was ordered at the beginning of the meal and arrived 20 minutes after the entree - dry and tasteless I have had better food at Outback Probably will never try a Chart House again - very disappointing

    Food was overall good. Glad the salad bar is back. The Lava cake was over cooked so tasted like a brownie instead of owey and gouey. Service was slow but we were okay with that since we were not in a rush.

    This has always been one of our favorite places. Great food and service. I had to take one star away because we made reservations, and they took the walk-ins in front of us. We had to wait an additional 10 minutes. I know not a real problem, but it would have been nice if the host acknowledged that he made us wait.

    We had a 6:30 reservation but unfortunately arrived - on time as the restaurant was trying to work with and seat a group of 50. After signing in, It took about 15 minutes for us to get the front staff’s attention. As we were seated next to the large group, the restaurant might have been noisier than usual. Luckily for us, our server provided the attention and care that we had hoped for when booking the dinner, and the food was delicious.

    Always consistent quality of food and service, as I have been to other CH's in CA and Nevada. However, on this visit the water (no bottled) tasted like bleach or salt water. The server apoogized and commented that they have issues with thier drinking water. Would have been nice to be offered a "bottled water" but my guest had 2 glasses of water that were not drinkable. My glass of water refill tasted like salt water, but then again the restaurant sits right above the ocean! ha ha... seriously the costini-fig-jam-fried cheese-appetizer was so good. My 9oz filet with lobster tail with baked potato was hot, cooked perfectly and a big portion. The hot bread & butter is so good too. Meal was totally worth every penny. Washed it down with a glass of Red and before the reservation, popped into the bar for a pre-dinner cocktail. CH is always a great experience. Always a fan!

    The food was excellent however it was all ruined by the incompetent service. She rather paid attention to other tables and totally forgot about us. I asked for my old fashioned to have one single ice cube. She came back saying, don’t hate me it’s a bunch little ones … great to see the table next to us indeed had it. Appetizers and entrées came out a few minutes after another. By time we were able to get our wine for our entrees, we were almost finished. For $180 for 2, I expect more. There is lots of improvement all around. If service does not matter to you, you should go the food was really delicious. We were unable to enjoy ours. Will NOT return!

    I ordered the Salmon and it was luke warm when served, had the side of mushrooms and they seemed to be steamed not tasty very blah! the other two in our party ordered the Tuscan seafood stew which was more stew than seafood, very disappointing. Also ordered oysters and they were small but good.The price for dinner was not worth it, I may stop in for happy hour but dinner NO

    We have visited this restaurant many times and have always loved it. The only comment this time is that that Salad Bar was not as good as it has been in the past. Our waiter (and waiter in training) did a great job to make sure we got everything we needed. Overall, a wonderful experience.
