Food was delicious, beautiful scenery of NYC skyline. Only bad thing was a long hair on my boyfriends plate. He had to send it back and my food got cold waiting for his food. But it was still delicious

Drinks, appetizers, dessert were phenomenal. Very obvious that my steak sat in the kitchen window for too long. Overcooked meat and mashed potatoes that were like cutting into a brick.

I guess you're paying for the view? Food average, not bad, just had better. I did like the blackened mahi though I wish I didn't get the Baja topping. Hummus platter was good. Too expensive for what it was.

Food was awful! Appetizer were dried up and hard calamari. for the main course we ordered coconut shrimp, but once again the shrimp were very hard. Also ordered a garden salad but it was not good and the waiter forgot the dressing. This is my second time there and I had hoped the food had gotten better but unfortunately it has not. Overall just over priced food for the quality. I don't mind paying premium for great food but this was not! I only recommend this place for the views. Vey disappointing since this was my wife birthday and we were not satisfied with our food.

The Chart is great for when you have friends in from out of town or you feel like spoiling yourself for dinner. The food is excellent and the view is outstanding. Also the service there is truly outstanding. Everyone from the people who greet you at the door to the person who walks you to your table to your server - all outstanding.

Fantastic !! Celebrated a special birthday and everyone was so nice and attentive to her. Keepsake menu with birthday wishes across the top was so special. Our waiter Tony was exceptional. Window seat was so beautiful. Puzzled by the fact that we could not see the Empire state building . We have seen pics of people in the restaurant and can see the building, why not now? Other than that, everything was top notch !!
Thank you so very much !!

Hice una reservación para celebrar el cumple de mi novio, llegamos tarde por un incidente que tuvimos, la chica de la entrada fue muy desconsiderada al no dejarnos explicar nada y regañarnos diciendo que debiéramos de haber llamado y avisando. Vine de mexico a celebrar con el, no tenia forma de llamar con mi celular, intente avisar por medio de la app y solo me daba la opción de cancelar cosa que no quería hacer. Por que es su lugar favorito en NJ y ahí queríamos cenar. Simplemente existen cosas que uno no controla.

Good experience (food-not the desert this time). Restaurant was very packed that evening so high noise level. Service was fine, not perfect as usual may be because of the number of people that evening and not enough waiters!? Lava cake was dried, minimum of chocolate inside comparing some other times when it is a delicious dessert... must have been baked hours before!!! Was not a good experience to finish the dinner. But we love the place and food which are usually great. We will go back end of November!!

We celebrated a birthday and were lucky to get a window table. However, please know itvwas very cold by the window. When we asked about shutting off the blowers we were told they need the air to circulate. Unfortunately it bounces off the glass so there was nothing they could do. The night was perfect but we ate with our coats on as did the other people around us at window tables.

Was sooooo overcooked. The scenary was nice and no complaints from the waitress. Im surprised they didn’t even offer a free dessert for the undercooked $46 bass. Will not go there again. Was not worth it

I’ve been to the chart house previously, and at this location for a wedding. The wedding was wonderful.

However, The Chart House Weehawkin seems to have lost their way, at least at our most recent visit:

- appetizer and salad course were served all at onc. This should never happen. The server should know. The kitchen should know. No need to rush - we were seated at 715 and expected an appropriately paced experience. Instead we were out in under 90 minutes.

- dinners were delivered and a pile of accumulated used silverware was ignored. The table looked disgusting as the food runner was about to leave us. Obviously the server should look at the table before walking away.

- server asked how our meals were before we started to eat. Shouldn’t happen - look at the table!

- server didnt come back until the end of dinner (so no offer of cracked pepper).

- 30 minute wait for a second drink. Two reminders to our server and one to a different server. The drink did show up at the end of the meal and was left unfinished.

Implicit in a dining experience at an established restaurant, one that is not low budget, is a properly trained staff, and management's eyes on the floor. Both were lacking, leaving The Chart House feelong like an overpriced TGI Fridays, and not what it once was.

Hadn’t been here in over 10 years even though we live a mile from it. Great view of course, and food was more exquisite than I remember it. Tried the 3-soup sampler and each soup was honestly some of the best of each I’ve ever had, especially the lobster bisque which has lots of chunks of lobster. My wife said same thing. Had the coconut shrimp and it was really good as well. Finally, had the Lava Cake for birthday dessert and talk about decadence. Out waiter was really friendly and super attentive...some of the best service I’ve had anywhere in a very long time. Planning on coming back more often.
