Brought my Canadian friends here for a special dinner and they love it as much as we do. They ran out of the fish for the Special of the Day but gave us the option to substitute another kind of fish. Amazingly it turned out so tasty. We always have a great experience with this Chart House.
The service was so poor, we literally left dinner.
Super-interesting cocktails. Great service and wonderful view, even at night. Great selection of fish dishes; however, the food is cooked more heavy-handed than the fish really should be.
We were very disappointed overall. This was a much looked forward to get away and nice dinner for us. The prime rib was cooked more than what my husband requested and was too dry. He left 1/2 of it behind-not even worth taking home and it was a larger cut. My salmon was very tasty, as was the bread. The mud bottom pie, my all time favorite, was also so disappointing! I got a smaller portion and there was hardly any of the cookie crust or fudge on top. Very different from what I was used to years ago. There was a dollop of whipped cream on the side and chopped peanuts ( what happened to the slivered almonds?) sprinkled all over with chocolate syrup (Hershey’s?) drizzled decoratively about the serving plate. I also left 1/2 of the ice cream since that was what it really mostly was- not much of the pie/fudge part. My husband got the cream brûlée and enjoyed it. The salad bar was very nice. We heard another waiter ask to check the prime rib for his table to make sure it was what they had requested. I wish ours had done that when it was served. We didn’t say anything to our waiter since we’ve heard many stories about people sending food back. We don’t often go to restaurants quite this expensive and loved it when we last went on our 30th anniversary some years ago-which is why it was so disappointing for me this time.
Great reception, great atmosphere, from the hostess to waitress, everything was perfect. Would have liked more menu choices, but overall, wonderful!!!
We both ordered prime rib. The food was good. However, the service was lacking. Server seemed uninterested in assisting us.
The only good portion of our dinner was ;
Sautéed Mushrooms ,Coffee and Desert
My $39 NY was terrible! At best it was room temperature, the Garlic mash potatoes was the same
The restaurant opened at 5:00 and we were seated by 5:10, at 6:00 our waitress informed us she was going on a dinner break and another waitress would take care of us, strange!
$150 dinner for two, we live on the peninsula and will never return to this restaurant .
Mr. Mike Finnerty, general manager, leads a team of stellar professionals that obviously follow his awesomely professional lead!!!! Thank you, wonderful, GM Mike Finnerty; see you soon!!!!
Cheers to my favorite new bartender, Jeremy! 🍸🍸🍸🍸
The service was amazing and it was a perfect place to wine and dine loved everything about it.
We love the Chart House in Monterey - our go-to special occasion because of the oceanfront window seating - love the views, sea otters, seals, birds, and an occasional whale! We have been there three or four times, including for our first two Valentine Day celebrations - very romantic! The food and service are excellent - we loved our server, Brittany, she did an excellent job of taking care of us without being obtrusive. My ahi steak was cooked to perfection as was my fiancé's filet mignon. The chopped salad and hummus appetizers were delicious - love the plantains! The sizzling mushrooms were a perfect compliment to both of our dinners, and the strawberry cheesecake was so delicious and very shareable:) We will be back again and again!
