The Service was outstanding. Our waitress was fun and friendly. The only fly in the ointment was the Prime Rib, Chart House Cut. It was cooked to order, but there was nearly a 2 inch in diameter ball of pure fat in the center, and the meat was semi-though. I was seriously considering sending it back, but due to a prescheduled event, time was of the essence. Otherwise, the other three meals and appetizers were great. So $200.00 (not including the $40.00 cash tip) later, I was really disappointed. I’ve lived in Redondo Beach my entire life, and remember going to the CH on dates in high school when the entire menu was painted on a simple wooden paddle.

We celebrated my husband's birthday here on March 11. It was a perfect evening - his words (and I concur). He rarely uses "perfect" to describe anything and the dinner was perfect. His prime rib (Callahan cut) was an exceptional cut of beef and cooked to perfection. I had the Ahi tuna sautéed. It was delicious. The side dishes were mushrooms and creamed spinach. All items were delicious. Our waiter was personable and attentive. He took very could care of us. We had a window table overlooking the ocean. The weather was sunny with some clouds which made for a stunning sunset. A dining experience that we will remember fondly and we will definitely return.

Everything was fine generally
We waited about 20 minutes for a window seating
The server was attentive
The salad bar was not up to par
No plates until I asked - no one to ask right away
No one making Cesar Salad
Palm of hearts and caviar depleted - staff when asked about the caviar said the salad bar was on them
Not a big deal for me but my wife likes those two missing items a lot but appreciate the comp on two salad bar charges.
Really a wonderful restaurant/ the staff always gives us a good table
Food is excellent!

We made a reservation for 6:15 and was not sat until 7:30 and when we kept asking we were only told that they had other people ahead of us and they are busy. The food was OK however by the time we sat for dinner and got our food we felt we needed to eat quickly.

One of the reasons why I chose this location for chart house is because it is right next to the ocean. If you're looking for a classy, five star restaurant with a sunset view, you've clicked on the right restaurant. The manager is very charismatic and helpful. The bartenders were hard workers and kept up the pace. The drinks were delicious and was worth the price. Would recommend.

I was at the Chart House for dinner to celebrate my retirement after 25 years. The Chart House had a special of double lobster tails with fingerling potatoes. My compliments to the chef. It was delicious.

My server Christian made my evening very special. He made sure to check that each course from appetizer to dessert was to my liking. On my dessert plate he honored me my placing a lit candle to celebrate my retirement. Thank you Christian for making my retirement dinner an evening of special memories that I shall cherish forever.

Excellent food and wine. Swordfish was the best I've ever had. My wife's coconut shrimp was amazing. The deserts were also magnificent. Our server, Sean, was top notch and very attentive to our needs.

Food was excellent as always however service could be improved immensely. The hostess seemed impatient and covered our table in to go boxes prior to giving us dessert.

My wife and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary at the chart house in Redondo Beach.

The staff at the chart house Second to none.
We were served that evening by Nancy which did an excellent job and made us feel welcome and at home. The view of the sunset was relaxing.

I hope our experience on this particular evening was an aberration. We have eaten at the Chart House on multiple occasions and have had great experiences. We even got married in the banquet room 2 years ago and were treated to an awesome event. This nights dinner was far from what we have come to expect. Our reservation was for 6 pm and we were not seated until close to 7 pm. After asking the hostess several times how much longer it would be it became apparent our reservation was skipped over for other guests. Our wait time did not get much better from there as our server had us waiting to take our order, getting our drinks, bread and butter, etc. The food is usually very good but I must say was disappointed with my choice of the prime rib which was not a highlight. Alas it may be awhile before we make it back. Coming from a customer service background I did not feel anyone at the restaurant went out of their way to make for a quality experience especially for my wife as it was dinner for her birthday.

The drinks from the bar did not arrive until after we got our food. I ordered a dirty martini which was terrible un-drinkable. I'm not sure what they put in it but it tasted like old olive juice with agave syrup. Also the sale was soggy and did not taste fresh.

Chart a House was great. Open Table Reservations, I wasn’t impressed. I made the reservations but Chart House didn’t have us down (I had email confirmation). When we got home we had three emails from Open Table. One was an email saying we didn’t go and “shame on us”. The second one was we changed our reservation from 4 to 5 people (it was never 5, always 4). The third email asked how we enjoyed dinner.......smh
