My grandkids ordered lava cake with the appetizers, and the meal was fine until dessert, when the other desserts, not ordered in advance, were delivered with coffees. One cup of coffee was full of grounds--took my son 15 min in the mens room to wash out most of it. The lava cake arrived after everyone else had finished dessert. It then took 15 minutes for another cup of coffee to arrive. Have liked Chart House and Landry restaurants--last month for my birthday--but no more.

Good: the food we had tasted great (filet mignon and seared ahi), always a nice setting
Bad: The mango mojito was way to sweet. They were out of oysters, out of prime rib and out of decaf coffee beans
Ugly: They said they managed to find decaf beans after looking again, but I'm convinced they just gave me regular. I was up all night.

Poor service. Server forgot multiple things (and never did bring), didn’t check on us after taking our order except to ask if we were done and then never even cleared our plates. Our bill was incorrect so we had to track down a manager with the hostess up front who did fix that issue, but overall a very dissapointing anniversary dinner.

Chart House has been my fav restaurant for over 20 yrs. Their menu is creative and unique. Best lobster bisque I've had anywheres (and I try it everywhere!) Their Salmon special was one of the best meals I've ever had - tender, moist, cooked to perfection. And of course the view is always wonderful.

We went to the Chart House for our anniversary and it was extremely hot. The A/C was apparently not able to keep up. Wish we were told this ahead of time. We would have picked another day. The food was good, but the garlic potatoes were dry. I didn't enjoy the atmosphere. It is dreary. For such a high price restaurant I expected real candles on the table, not battery operated. Our waitress was nice and accommodating.

Everything was great. Our server Rachel did a terrific job under the conditions. Dining out with old friends from out of town guests. The only problem was the air conditioning wasn’t working and by the time we left it was extremely un comfortable. Cant blame the waitress, but it did put a damper on an otherwise perfect evening.

This was my first time here. I was given gift cards as a reward for a project at work and decided to try Chart House. We will be back!! Our server was amazing, the food was incredible, and the view is off the charts!!! We were on a date and the hostess brought us to the most scenic table in the place. Our server was engaging and knowledgable, entertaining and personable. No pressure, excellent service and friendly patrons equals an outstanding experience. Thank you, Chart House!!

Chart House in Newport is one of our favorite places to eat. The river, the boats, the sunsets. The service, the drinks, the food. Always excellent. And if it weren't, I'm sure that it would be taken care of quickly. Go and enjoy.

We expected this to be a great place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Quiet atmosphere overlooking the river. Unfortunately for us, the North Bend Yacht Club was having an event in the restaurant that evening and the noise level ruined the atmosphere. We were especially disappointed that the hostess tried to seat us right next to the Yacht Club tables when there were clearly other tables available. Fortunately, she honored our request to be seated further away. The food and service were ok. We expected to pay more to have a special evening. Unfortunately, it did not turn out that way.

My husband and I went for dinner on the river. We got a wonderful table by the windows.
The service was excellent. Douglas was our waiter and he is top notch. The food was great. The salad bar could be a meal in itself. I got the Mac Nut Mahi that was which was very good. My husband got the salmon. The servings are very big so you will have leftovers to take home.
Great restaurant, we had wonderful evening and will be going back.

We love the food at the Chart House, and only go on special occasions. It had been about five years since our last visit. The food was still just as tasty as ever, and our entrées were outstanding, as well as the service. Two points of feedback: in the past, our family had always been able to share the chopped spinach salad. Either our memories are bad, or the size of the salad really did decrease significantly. It just seemed in the past when we shared it, we had a quite a bit more salad on our plate. Secondly, we consider the Chart House to be fine dining. Especially when dinner is $145. Unfortunately, the background music played through the speakers did not fit that category and cheapened the ambiance. After we left, my husband said he was not in a hurry to go back again. There is a certain aura one expects with a meal of that caliber and cost.
