We had an amazing meal cooked to perfection. The hot lava cake was divine. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
We had to wait over 15 min for our cocktails to arrive. Wine was not served before entree arrived
Entree on the table , cooling down, and wine was not serve in a timely manner. Owner came by and talked to us about our experience and we shared our concerns and he said they had just added fancy drinks that were taking much of bartenders time.
Appetizer of crab, shrimp, avocado and mango stack was a real highlight.
This was our first visit to Chart House. We were celebrating our 10 year anniversary. Everyone at the restaurant went out of their way to make us feel special. We sat at a table with an amazing view, they gave us a menu with a special message and to top it all off we received a free dessert for our celebration. The food was delicious! We had a wonderful evening at The Chart House!
Fabulous view, terrific service, great salad bar, prime rib was outstanding as were the oysters Rockefeller
For a chain restaurant, this was off the chart. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to anyone.
Good happy hour here. Everything was good.
Had the best anniversary dinner EVER!! Beautiful widow seat and beautiful Brittany was our server. Can’t wait to go back. Delicious!!
This was a special gift for my birthday from our adult children so my husband and I enjoyed a fabulous meal and a beautiful view of the ocean. Very nice. First time we have been there and it was all that we expected and more. A meal and experience to remember.
They did an amazing job. We were seated right away. Everything was great.
We had taken a road trip with my 15 year old son and his friend. It’s mine and my sons favorite place to go. The food is always on point, the service fabulous and our fave every time we are in the Monterey area! I wish I remembered our waitresses name as she was so great in every way we could have wanted. Perfect for a nice family meal since my kids love it so much or even a date, or just because!
I came to celebrate my 9th wedding anniversary with my husband. It was a very romantic place to come for dinner. The food and service was amazing! I will definitely recommend this place to others.
Been going to Chart House for years... first time I’ve ever had a bad experience with anything... on this night, our entrees and side dish were all over cooked... the “medium” prime rib was well done (no pink at all); the “medium well” filet was dry and had not even the slightest amount of pink in it; our sizzling mushrooms were charred black... we did ask for the filet to be replaced and it was but the second one was not much better than the first... I really feel that if the person in the kitchen cooking thought that these were done properly and still sent them to the table, he or she needs a little bit of retraining... We’re writing this off as an exception to our normal experience which has been great... we probably should have sent everything back, and in the future, we will ask to speak to the Mgr while we are there.
We had a table right by the window with great view. The food, especially prime rib, was very tasty and the service was wonderful. This Chart House is highly recommended by me.
The food was very good and our waitress was outstanding. The only problem we had and it’s why I would not recommend or go again is how rudely we were treated by the hostess. We had reservations at 6:30 pm and arrived at 6:25. The restaurant is on the water and has great views of Monterey bay. When making the reservation you cannot request a window seat till you arrive. When we arrived we politely requested a window seat and the hostess rudely informed us it would be at least forty five to sixty minutes till a table was available. We chose not to wait that long and agreed to take whatever table was available. Within five minutes after sitting at our table two window tables became available and after fifteen minutes two more became available. Since window seating is not available for reserving they could not have been reserved. So basically the hostess just lied to us and was not willing to give us a window seat. For that reason we will not go again. There are many other restaurants available there to dine on the water.
Great service beginning with hostess. Crab stack ( or something like that ! ) was an excellent appetizer. Friend ordere the prime rib. As good as I have seen. About 1.5 inches thick and cooked to a perfect medium rare. Bay views are great and night had lots of sea life activity.
I'm a local and I'm going back!!
Draft beer unavailable . Asked for sauce on side ignored . Service slow even though not busy . Fish not hot
Fantastic scenery and ambience. Starter crudo is great. Very accommodating for our small children as well, which is always very appreciated and cause for recommendation. It takes a lot of work to keep them quiet, and the restaurant pays off in spades. Loved the nonalcoholic mixed drinks.
The seafood is nothing special. The service is OK.
A better place is next door at the Monterey Plaza.
The ahi taco appetizer we ordered from the happy hour menu and the mud pie was amazing. Otherwise, the food was barely edible but our waitress was fantastic. With all of the amazing restaurants in Carmel, I wouldnt waste the money at this Chart House.
We came here for our 40 th wedding anniversary. We were given a beautiful window table. They gave us a special momento with happy anniversary wishes printed onto the top of our menu. The prime rib was very tender. The lava cake was heavenly and they even treated us to mud pie. Mike, the manager stopped by to say hello and check on everything. Amy our server was delightful. We hope to come back again. We love this chain of restaurants and this one is our favorite now. Many thanks to the entire staff for such a beautiful night.
Only annoyance was a light above our table that kept flickering.
This place is amazing. The view is absolutely breathtaking. The food was really delicious. I had their lobster bisque and rockfish and my husband had the king crab. Everything was extremely fresh and delicious.
We have driven up several times to celebrate my birthday in April and our anniversary in May to dine at the Chart House. It is always superb food, scenic view of the Monterey bay and the service is outstanding. Will return again soon!
Seafood was very well prepared. Salad can't be beat anywhere. Attentive service.
As always, the restaurant is terrific with good food, view and love the salad bar. My husbands steak was overcooked, and they offered to cook him another steak, but he hates to waste food and declined the offer. They comped our dessert instead. We will return.
Enjoyed a family reunion meal here. Great attentive service. Enjoyed the salad bar plus the great seafood menu. Cioppino is excellent and the steaks were equally good choices for a couple in our party
We arrived early and were seated at a window table, as per my request on the reservation. The waiter was very nice, the food was delicious and the view outstanding
It was our 20th Anniversary and we had a great dinner.
We only visit a couple of times each year as the price limits us to special events. The restaurant is beautiful with a wall of glass overlooking the Monterey Bay. The salad bar has many options that are a cut above standard salad offerings. They do a good job of keeping it stocked and clean. Our server was delightful. She seemed to be genuinely pleased that we enjoyed ourselves. She figured out our low-to-no-carb pattern and did not push bread, starches or sweets. (She DID mention them. She just didn't pressure us.) I enjoyed the white bass in taste and texture and they replaced the rice with more vegetables. My wife had filet with truffle butter. It was cooked just right and delicious.
Nice place, friendly staff, and good food. Great location with nice view of Monterey Bay.
Exceptional views with a staff that makes sure they take care of your dining needs and are always happy to suggest alternatives for the side dishes or different types of cooking preparations. The staff never makes you feel rushed and are always attentive without hovering. We have made sure our family and friends enjoy a dinner here when in the Monterey Bay area.
Oysters Rockefeller and Lobster Bisque are a must. The food was amazing and the service was great.
My husbands birthday celebration. Great waiter (can’t remember his name), very personable and helpful. Delicious complementary dessert and wonderful crepe brûlée. Great view and water entertainment!
Fabulous views and the best food on the Monterey coast.
Apparently they have recently renovated as there are issues with their lighting levels, dimming and then coming on very brightly all through our dinner. We didn’t think the large cut of the prime rib was worth $64. Salad Bar was good and always, there is the great Chart House view..
Delicious fresh seafood and great service!
Easter dinner was very disappointing. The salmon needed to be set back because it wasn't cooked correctly. The baked potato wasn't fresh and fluffy, it was warm at best. I find it difficult to enjoy dinner when one meal has to be sent back.
I was excited to check out this restaurant because of the reviews but found it a bit lacking. My spoon at the table setting was dirty and my drink had someone’s hair in it. They were very accommodating but seeing someone’s hair in my drink after sipping it was gross and affected the mood of our meal. But at least the view was nice!
Brittany our waitress was excellent, presentation of food was amazing.
The Chart House is a wonderful place for any occasion. Dress up or down, go for an anniversary or birthday and they make it extra special. Or just go to enjoy the otters and the beautiful ocean view. Awesome experience regardless of the reason, or time of day!
AS USUAL THE CHARTHOUSE MONTEREY IS WONDERFUL! FLOOR TO CEILING WINDOWS
