    The restaurant was packed on a Saturday night. We made reservations, but still waited 25 minutes. We were seated at a nice table with a view of the lights around the bay. Fresh, warm rolls arrived with yummy honey butter. We each enjoyed a glass of wine. My husband ordered blackened salmon which was perfect and served with properly prepared vegetables. I had the crunchy coconut shrimp which was delicious and came with 3 different and tasty dipping sauces. We finished by sharing a sorbet prosecco dessert cocktail which was refreshing with just enough sweetness. Our server was warm, funny, and savvy. A lovely evening!

    Usually one of our favorite dining experiences, however it was somewhat disappointed this time. We eat at this restaurant generally twice a year for the past 10 years. On this occasion our food, a captains cut prime rib, was not prepared to our requested medium cooking time. We also requested a split order of this entree, which we do on every visit, and when it was brought to our table was not in a split order. We also are usually are able to order an all you can eat salad bar added to our ticket at the reduced price because it is ordered with an entree, however we were charged full price this time.

    The food did not meet expectations especially at the price point. The bronzed swordfish lacked any flavor. The berry mule drink had hardly any alcohol. The shrimp beignets were basically doughy hush puppies. The shrimp was good, but scallops lacked a good sear. Have no complaints about the warm brown bread. Service was slow, but food preparation was pretty quick. Overall, for these prices, you can pick a better option.

    The dinner and service was amazing. I was very disappointed to make a reservation at 730 and not be sat until 8. And I wasn’t the only one. I don’t have A problem waiting for my table, I had a problem that I was told by the hostess that checked us in and they would seat me in a couple minutes. This was the same statement she made to every single person that had a reservation, knowing that they were running about a half hour behind for those that had reservations. It’s mismanagement and lack of training. What I should have been told is we have some tables that are taking longer than expected and unfortunately we are looking at about a half hour wait. She then could have guided me to the bar for a drink. In fact, maybe the restaurant should’ve bought drinks. When people have reservations their tables should not be given away to people that are walkins you should have tables that are designated for walkins and tables that are designated for your reservations.

    Waited 40 minutes to be seated even with a reservation. No acknowledgement or apology. Requested a table by the window and it was given to a party that came in after us. We were celebrating our anniversay and it really wasn't the experience we exoected or were hoping for. Our server was the only brightside, she was great but unfortunately will not be coming back for overpriced food.

    Horrible experience. I order a double kamikaze and it was literally a sip drink that tasted like pure lemon juice. I told the waitress, she brought me another one and it was the exact same and then charged me for both-20$ each! My husband and I both ordered steaks and they were filled with fat- so disgusting. The service was horrible, the waitress was so unapologetic and kept up selling us on everything and charged our bill for stuff we didn’t even order.

    We were seated exactly on time, we got were seated at a Window Table with an incredible view, and the food was quickly served and prepared exactly was requested. The wine recommendations were excellent. But, the service out did all of that. Garrett was our Server and he was extremely helpful and patient while dealing with 4 old men who can be extremely picky after a long day of golf.

    Excellent food with good service. Noise level coming from one group was very disruptive and they were never asked to be a little quieter by anyone on staff. Took away from the ambiance of a nice dinner out. Would recommend since that group won’t be there.

    My husband and I had a wonderful date night at the Chart House. The food was over the top as he ordered the King salmon and I had the coconut prawns. We had some wonderful wine and our server was very attentive. She had several tables but we never noticed. I highly recommend a reservation as others were waiting 45 min to an hour.

    We were in town for an event and on our last night decided to eat a nice meal at Chart House. It was pretty good, as usual— pricey but very comfortable and food and drinks generally excellent and well-presented. Two issues: First, a minor issue was our server, who might’ve been new (our receipt has her partner’s name on it) took our order but didn’t come back to check on us after the food was delivered by somebody else. I had wanted to ask for some wine, but eventually flagged down her partner who arranged for it. The second, worse issue happened with dessert. My wife and I were going to share a mud pie, but we told the waitress we’d order it depending on whether they could bring our eleven-year-old son some ice cream. She assured us they had a vanilla bean ice cream, so we ordered. They soon brought it, and I noted two small scoops of white ice cream on his dessert plate. As we started in on our dessert (the mud pie was great), our son remarked, “Dad, this is like whipped cream”. So I used my spoon to sample it. The edge of the son went through it with no more force than gravity, and it melted completely and instantly in my mouth. It may have had a hint of vanilla, but I wasn’t sure; what I was sure of is that it was, in fact, whipped cream. We mentioned it to the server, and she seemed surprised (perhaps she was), but she didn’t comp us for it. It was only $2, but if they had simply told us they were out of ice cream we’d have paid the bill and left; I suspect they faked the ice cream to get us to buy the dessert. I expect much better from Chart House. We went to Baskin Robbins afterward to get our son some real ice cream.

    Arrived at 6:40 for a 7:00 reservation and was told they where running a bit behind and our table would be ready after 7:00. Since there was no room inside to wait the host (male) said they would text us when the table was ready. At 7:30 we returned to the host and he said we should be next. After several people where sat we asked the hostess what our eta was, she replied with I called your name and you where not here so we gave your table away. WTH. We asked why we did not receive a text and she said we don’t text. WTH. We got our table at 7:50. Not great seating either. We had requested a window and got a partial window then watched the people who came in after us get sat a a nice window table. Oh well. The male host walked by just then and we asked him what happened with the text and he said I don’t know all I do is take people to there table. Again WTH! So the food was ok, not bad but ok. The prime rib was a bit tough and the lava cake (ordered when we sat down) took a long time to be served. The waitress was very nice, manager was nice and apologetic. They gave us 18.00 off our bill. So our hour long wait and rude host was worth 18.00 to them. I would have been much happier if the rude host would have just said sorry I made a mistake.

    I really wanted to like this restaurant... the setting is very nice right on the water, but from start to finish we had an awful experience. We made a reservation weeks in advance requesting a view table, however, we waited over 45 minutes to be seated. During that time we checked with the hostess to inquire about wait time and she repeatedly said "any minute now". While we were waiting, about 15 minutes prior to finally being seated, we watched a family that was the same size walk in without a reservation and was seated right away at a view table. When we were finally seated it was in the corner of the restaurant near the kitchen, no view. The table and chairs were dirty, and the wine/water glasses were noticeably filthy. I ordered a martini that tasted like water, and my husband ordered a beer in a can that smelled like propane or gasoline. We ordered the Kimchi Calamari which was almost inedible with the amount of grease it was laden with. Both of our entrees were sub-par, bland, and boring. We decided to cut our losses short and did not order dessert. The only positive thing I can say about this restaurant is that the waiter and server were polite and attentive.

    Made reservations but still had to wait 15 minutes before getting seated. Waiter took a very long time to come to our table for: taking our drinks, ordering, didn’t come to check on us every so often, or getting our check. We had to waive her down a couple of times. We were so disappointed that we couldn’t wait to just leave. My ginger ale tasted awful then ordered sprite but it came out to be club soda, I just got a water after that. The portions of food was poor for price and lacked flavor. A nice restaurant but service and food was poor.

    We visited the Chart House during a visit to Monterey's Cannery Row. The reputation as a staple once in Miami is unmatched. The quality of cocktails as well as menu items are plentiful, exciting and offer quality. We had an amazing server, Tanner was thorough, patient and attentive. The filet mignon, the halibut as well as the lava cake were all just amazing and done to perfection. We would highly recommend the Chart House at Monterey.

    This is probably our favorite Chart House location in the USA. "Floor show" with view of otters, dolphins, and seals was particularly good last night. And of course the food is great too--both swordfish and halibut were great last night.
