    Food very good, but had to wait 50mins after our scheduled reservation time to get a table. Front of house staff did not how to communicate well with the waiting diners. Not sure that they were happy in their work. It came across that they didn’t care and there was no direction given to them from superiors to help them cope. Table staff seemed caring.

    Came here with my family to celebrate a birthday. I wanted to love this restaurant because the ambiance was lovely with sights of the ocean view, but the wait for our table took almost an hour. I had booked a reservation in advance and it took quite some time to both get seated and also receive our food. First round of cocktails were good but it seemed like there was a change of bartender because the second round of drinks tasted completely different. After taking our food order, the server asked us about dessert and recommended to order ahead since it takes 30 minutes to prepare. We took his word on it, yet we still waited quite a long time for the dessert. I know the time of our food and quality of our cocktails wasn’t our server’s fault so I will comment that his service and attentiveness were on point! Hope this helps anyone planning to dine here.

    Damian our server was good. He gave us recommendations and always had a smile. He went about and beyond. We observed him taking an interest in the family next to our table. He took the time to talk to the kids. That is awesome to see someone that is busy but still take time to acknowledge a family. Good job Damian.

    We celebrated our 50th Anniversary at the Chart House and we’re treated like royalty. We were given a seat by a window overlooking Monterey Bay and Seals provided a floor show cavorting and leaping through the kelp. The food was excellent. My spouse enjoyed lobster bisque and a Shrimp and Scallop entree and I enjoyed a Caesar salad and grilled Mahi. Everything was fresh tasting and well prepared. Service was also excellent! We had a grand celebration.

    I asked for a window table in my reservation and they brought us to another table so I told them I had asked for a window table and they brought us to a corner window that we saw the building next door. My son and I ordered the filet and they were both over cooked so much we couldn’t eat them. Also took 2 hours from ordering to pay. Lots of time sitting and waiting. Husband did enjoy his fish he ordered. Very disappointed from the price you pay. Our meal for 3 was over $200. That’s why I think the food and request for a great view was disappointing.

    Reservations are a must. Come early so that you can get a window table overlooking the ocean. The blackened king salmon, garlic mashed potatoes, sizzling mushrooms, asparagus and lava cake are served piping hot and are absolutely delicious. The servers are friendly and really make you feel welcome.

    Wife and I went to the Chart House for a special meal. Having been a customer over the years, it was a shame to see them decline. Our drinks were good, the salad was good, but our prime rib lacked flavor...and the creamed spinach had a hair in it! Not going back....

    My husband and I were staying in Carmel for a work event. We like to visit the Chart House because we have been going there since we Got married 38 years ago. It holds a special place in our hearts and we are NEVER disappointed by the service, food, or location overlooking the ocean. Again we were amazed at the foods quality and flavors. Our server was a very nice gentleman who was attentive and professional. Thank you once again for a wonderful experience. We choose Chart House because we have come to expect the excellence you always provide!
