We had a great waiter very social and attentive. The food was great except the shrimp I had with scallops the shrimp was over cooked and dry. The scallops were creamy and charred perfect. The swordfish was excellent

The service was solid and friendly especially for a larger group, but the main dish was not great. I had purchased the NY Strip Steak and it was not great. My sides and soup were delicious.

We arrived to Valet parking- nice! We were greeted with smiles and told our reservation was confirmed and would be seated shortly- and we were. Beautiful window table with views as I had requested. Our server/waitress was also happy and attentive. Food arrived in timely fashion and was very good- after apps and our salad I asked to give us some time prior to entre' and she handled that with pleasure.

At one point the manager - Wayde, stopped by our table to say hello and we had a nice visit- he was very attentive to the guests and his staff. Nice to see.

Finished with coffee and desert- we were full but we were warned of that by our server- ha!!! Portions were very large and priced very fair for what you got!!!

All in All a great dinner and will return. We do recommend this to all wanting a nice experience with a nice location and great food???

Our waiter was attentive but seemed nervous and inexperienced. We felt that the food was somewhat expensive for the quality. We have dined at the Philadelphia Chart house many times in the past, and have observed the prices have gone up substantially and food quality has diminished. I was entertaining an out of town client. I would definitely go there for drinks and the view of the river, but not for dinner again.

From the time we walked up to Chart House we was greeted With smiles from the front staff not the kind of smile you get because it's My job. It was the smile that says welcome and enjoy and enjoy I did. My hat goes off to the Chefs The food was outstanding and that's a lot coming from me when it comes to eating in a restaurant. Every dish was tastefully good the waitress Rebecca who took are order was just as wonderful very pleasant and very knowledgeable of the menu. I give Rebecca a 10 plus My wife literally enjoyed every dish

I love Chart house however when I expressed a concern regarding portion size on my main entree to the waiter, the manager should have come out and personally addressed the issue. What happened was the waiter said would notify the manager of my concern and I had to follow up with waiter who only relayed a message from the manager. I could have done more but let it go on my special celebration. I may follow up with restaurant.

My boyfriend and I went to celebrate his birthday and we had the BEST time! We both got drinks and enjoyed an amazing appetizer; the Wicked Tuna, which was over the top delicious and large! Our filets were delicious and the lava cake was to die for! He was treated with a slice of ice cream cake too. The service was phenomenal and the views were incredible. Also- the price was VERY fair. Amazing experience!!

The evening started off great we were a few minutes early so we waited at the bar. Bar maids were awesome suggested a drink that wasn't too strong I had 2... I'd asked if we could sit by the window and they were great with honoring that while letting me know it'd be a few extra minutes, I appreciate that. We were seated beautiful view and the ambience was awesome. Ordered appetizers and bread. Time went by waitress continued to check on us but over an hour went by with no main course everyone around us were eating and finishing up their meals while we were still waiting. The waitress ultimately got the manager involved but we still waited another half hour. It really was disappointing and took away from the whole experience. The manager took the appetizer off our bill but I didn't even want my dinner after the long wait. He/ she never even came over to speak to us or anything. I'd heard good and bad things about The Chart House and I was planning on taking him back in April for his birthday but don't think we'll be going back.

Don’t dine here! This restaurant dining experience was the worst I have ever had in my lifetime. The hostess was rude, the manager was sarcastic and verbally abusive to his waitstaff and to the patrons, and the food quality was poor. You can get a better meal at Red Lobster. I had steak (I know, I should have gotten seafood, but I didn’t), and the meat was awful...tough and chewy. I couldn’t cut through it with the steak knife, and it was improperly cooked. I am so disappointed in the whole experience- I am not even willing to give Chart House a try in any other city, anywhere, ever.
Save yourself heartache and reserve a meal anyplace else in Philadelphia besides this restaurant.
Terrible.
