Poor service and we were told by our server that we couldn’t order fish this late.

After being seated we waited.... and waited..... and waited for our server to come over or even acknowledge us. Finally after waiting for 15 minutes our server came over and just started pouring waters. No hi, my name is... or sorry about the wait... nothing. We ordered a bottle of wine and the waiter started to walk off. I told him we were also ready to order now. After attempting to order mahi-mahi, the waiter asked, “Didn’t the hostess tell you that you can’t order fish this late?” As if we were idiots for not already knowing that.

I was done at this point and just said, We’ll just leave then. I walked up to the hostess and explained that we were walking out because it took over 15 minutes for anyone to even acknowledge us and then we were told we couldn’t order fish this late. We then proceeded to the elevator to leave.

The manager overheard my conversation with the hostess and came over to apologize and asked if there was anything he could do to make it up to us. He also explained that they were out of fish, which is why we couldn’t order fish. I told him I couldn’t handle BOTH bad service AND no fish. I do appreciate his apology, but would rather spend my money where the service is better. We ended up just eating on the Riverwalk instead. You should too.

My food was good but others in my party weren’t impressed. Service was a bit slow but we did go on a Friday night. Waitress kept removing our drinks/food/silverware off the table before we were done with it.

The food could have been a lot better. We had to ask to take my moms filet mignon back to get it to medium well while we had our entree’s. I ordered the same which was good but order veggies (broccoli and red peppers) and brought me garlic mash potatoes. I waited about 20 minutes and the waiter comes back with green beans saying they were all out of the veggies. So during that time I was waiting I did not eat my steak and when the green beans came I requested to have it warmed up since it got cold. My boyfriend ordered the ribeye, he said tasted bland with little taste. It was moist and cooked perfect and that’s all he said about his meal. To say the least, the table in front of us also had their order remade for unknown reasons and we saw the manager come to the table and apologize many times to them. It appeared to us maybe there was a new cook? We’re not sure but the food was not up to par for the bill that we received. I expected more out of the restaurant since I’ve already visited and everything was great. Which is why I wanted to celebrate my mother’s birthday at this restaurant.

The atmosphere was great.
The view was ok.
The drinks were good.
I don’t think I’d recommend the restaurant.
Thank you for taking the time to read my review.

Should have been another option on the menu for Valentine's and it being ash Wednesday. Wasn't to happy with the menu. And a little to pricy for chicken rice and beans. And no rose petals at a table for four poeple when reserved for two. We have always been pleased with our visits there but a little disappointing this time.

Once seated we realized that they didn’t have the full menu available. We came for the filet but it wasn’t available so we ordered an appetizer and drinks. They must have been having a/c issues, it was unbearably hot in there. I’m not talking a little warm or stuffy, I was sweating. We quickly finished the appetizer and left. The restaurant staff were friendly and professional as usual.

I absolutely LOVED the waiter my friend and I had here. We used to live in San Antonio and this was by far the best experience I have had. It was a really densely foggy night, so we were unable to enjoy the view, but the food was great.

Tooo my girl friend out for a special occasion and the service was great, our waiter was very kind and recommended amazing dishes. However it was very foggy outside so we didn’t get the scenic view of downtown so we will have to come back again. During our dinner a few of the servers or cooks in the kitchen got into a pretty heated arguement and were yelling at each other which was a huge distraction to our dinner.

Pleasantly surprised. Reviews kind of scared me but wanted a special place for my wife and I for Valentine's Day. Went Tuesday rather than Wednesday. Got there early (5:45pm). No lines at all. It was a foggy drizzly day so no view out the windows. Our reservation was for 8pm. The greeter had no problem moving our reservation up to 6:30. Angel and Diedra at the bar where friendly and helped us with our drinks. Had happy hour appetizers with the happy hour drinks. All were good. Wife had (I think) coconut shrimp and I had the prime rib. My prime rib was excellent. It is pricey, but I knew that going in. Nice place for special occasion.

The Tower was our End of GirlTrip 2018! luncheon just before some of my favorite ladies flew back to Phoenix. The staff was spot on from the ground floor up! Our server Dominique was excellent. Brian came by to make sure we had enjoyed ourselves, which we most certainly did! Even in heavy fog this place was a delight!

The place has a great view but the bar service was real slow. The dinner service was better once we waited 30 minutes past our reservation time. Two part members received cold almost raw prime rib when they ordered medium rare. Several in the party ordered different types of fish all of which they said was good..... so flip a coin if you want to go for the view.

Had the worst experience till date of any restaurant. This place was special besucase I proposed to my wife here. We went back to celebrate the one year mark of our engagement and our upcoming weeding. The server was rude, a smart a#% and was rude to my friends which we took as guests. He denied us bread and had to get up to ask the manager for complimentary bread. I told them I could pay for as much bread they would like I didn’t mind at all! The server was extremely rude and sarcastic. I am a very easy customer I know what it is like to be a foodserver. But this employee simply ruined our night

The food was amazing but the service was horrible. Our server was more attentive to other tables than he was to us. First he got my boyfriend’s order wrong, and then we never received our bread and he had the nerve to say that he burnt our bread and asked if we still wanted it, and I ordered a glass of wine that I did not receive until after we finished our meal. We still left a tip with all of the bad service because that’s just the type of people we are. I have to think really hard about returning.

 (Austin)·Dined on February 10, 2018

First off, the food was delicious. My issue is that I made reservations far in advance specifically for this particular night. I specifically requested a window seat in an L-shaped booth. I understand the wait time to clean the table would be about 20 minutes. But, when I arrived, I not only waited 20 min from the moment I checked in, a hostess came by and told me it would be an additional 20 min wait for a window seat, and an additional 30 min to get an L-shaped booth (which I originally asked for in the reservation 2 weeks prior). I was pretty upset because it spoiled some plans I had for dinner, but nonetheless, I decided to wait at least for a window seat. At the end of the extra 20 min wait, the same hostess took us to a table on the upper deck, not the window that I waited a total of 40 min extra for even after having a "reservation". When I explained I was waiting for a table by the window, she seemed confused and said there were none available at the time. When I finally gave in (because I, and my fiance, was hungry and tired of waiting) I was seated at the table in the upper deck. The view was definitely not as I had planned for this particular date, and, to top it off, my and my fiance started getting motion sickness half way through the date. I have been to the Chart House restaurant in the Tower of the Americas plenty of times and have NEVER experienced this kind of lack of organization. For having paid the amount of money I did, for what was supposed to be an amazing night, I expected much more than the experience I had. It was unorganized to say the least, and, because of the extra wait time, my parking ticket had expired. To top it all off, we missed our show later that night, which also cost quite a bit. I sincerely can only hope that this issue will be resolved so that others won't waste their entire night due to the lack of another person's organizational skills.

I took my 13 year old daughter out on a Daddy-Daughter date. We got dressed up and had dinner at the Chart House Restaurant atop the Tower of the Americas. This was our third time dining here as it has become one of our favorite places to dine. The food, service and ambiance were great. ...and the molten chocolate dessert is unbelievable! We will visit again in the next 9-12 months to keep on pace of visiting at least once a year.

The entire night was very nice. We were greeted right away at the entrance. As soon as we got off the elevator, they called me by name and sat us right away with no waiting. Very nice setting especially the lighting. Waiter was awesome. However the food isn’t all that great. Steak dinner has no flavor or seasoning. Asked for a medium cooked steak and got a well-done. Still ate it cause i was hungry. The food was mediocre. But I would say your paying for the experience and setting than the food. If I ever go Next time, I would just go for a salad and water and then go to salt grass after🤔
