The food was not that great. We asked for a well done steak it wasnt well done. Also there was more fat than meat. It was also tasteless. We didnt complain because we didnt want to wait to probably end up getting another steak redone and wait longer for the food. The appetizer calamari barely brought any calamari there was more vegetables than calamari itself. Ambience was good. View was nice. But I would deff just leave this place for a once a year type of visit.

Very good Happy Hour with expert bartenders serving craft and regular cocktails. Bar service is quick and professional. Dinner was good, had a nice Filet Mignon, done to request. Vegetables were soggy and overdone, but this is easily overlooked as result of the spectacular NYC view from the oversize windows surrounding the restaurant. There was a wedding going on, I bet the pictures will be spectacular. This is a place for a special occasion, serious business meeting or important event. I always welcome my clients requests to dine at the Weehawken Chart House. Nice job!

Chart House always be my best choice when I have a important visitors from oversea. Everyone are impressive for the super high ceiling dinning hall and fantastic water front view of Manhattan. The food is tasty and delicious. Mr. Nielsen, The general Manger of Chart House, leaded the way to our seats and also swing by to ask if any thing we might need during the dinning. We felt very special in this evening.

The very good food, and excellent service, were only surpassed by the amazing ambience, and view. One of our favorites. Don't be fooled because it's a "chain". This has all you need for a date, or a special occasion. Don't forget to try their Happy Hour as well.

I brought my wife to the Chart House for her 30th birthday. I made a reservation online; and, in the reservation, I left a note that it was her birthday, and we would appreciate a good waterfront view.

We arrived a half-hour earlier than our reservation, but they sat us right away. They had received my message and gave a beautiful seat right by the window with a perfect view. Every staff member we encountered on the way to our table knew it was her birthday. They all said "happy birthday" without me having to say anything, and even our menus had "Weehawken Chart House wishes you a Happy 30th Birthday!" printed on the top! That was an amazing touch that sure was surprising to my wife and I.

Moreover, our food was delicious, and our waiter, Stainley, completed the experience by being very attentive, knowledgable, and fun to talk to. He gave us patient and professional service, and we were very happy we had listened to so many of his recommendations (the Mango Mojito, the Mac Nut Mahi, the King Salmon sautéed with the tropical salsa, and the Lava Cake). At the end of the night, he wrapped up our custom menus and tied a bow around them and gave us a very nice farewell.

After dinner, walking around the waterfront dock at the Chart House with the city lights in the background topped everything off and made her birthday night everything I had wanted it to be.

I would recommend the Chart House to anyone who is looking to create a romantic evening for themselves and a special person in their lives. It was our first time at the Chart house, but we will certainly be back (maybe for my 30th this time!).

Thank you, Stainley, and the Weehawken Chart House for the perfect night!

The service was extremely slow. Waiter had a good attitude but it took awhile for our food to come out. Then when our food came out by another server, the food was uncovered and he was talking over our food to another server as to what table of dishes belong to. We complained to the manager and she got right it as she explained all dishes should be covered. Of course we had to wait for our new meals to be prepared. Our dessert was complimentary after everything, but service needs to improve. We've been to various Mortons, Ruth Chris, Maestro's, Landry Seafood, Oceanaire, and his was the worst service. Wife got sick because her fish was under cooked. Even with the manager doing her best to improve our night out, not sure we will come back or recommend after this experience.

This is our favorite place for special occasions. The food is excellent and the view of NYC is stunning. On the water with an outdoor space to enjoy the nice weather. Bar is cool at night. Had a reservation but had to wait 20 minutes for our table. Usually the service is great but this time we waited 15 minutes before a server arrived and we had to ask for one. Our server was not as good as previous ones and the service was slow. We've been there many times so this was just a one off so it won't stop me from going back. We love this place! Highly recommend.

Went there for a celebratory dinner with my fiancé. The views are absolutely stunning. The staff is very friendly. Only issue we had is we ordered two steaks one medium rare and one medium. Both came out well done and far from what we ordered. But the manager came over apologized for the mistake and had them make a new steak which came out very fast and tasted excellent.

One of the best dining experiences I've ever had. I booked this reservation for a special occasion of my best friend getting married. With little notice they customized menus for us! Our server Faye was possibly the best waitress I have ever had. She remembered our names and was extremely friendly and attentive. She gave us great and honest recommendations. The manager even stopped by our table to congratulate the engaged couple. The food was cooked perfectly. The restaurant has floor to ceiling windows with a view of the entire manhattan skyline, absolutely breath taking. I cannot say enough positive things about the restaurant, the food, and the overall dining experience. I highly recommend it!

$10 valet parking charge was a negative. We were surprised at this. Our waiter gave us a distracted greeting, only minimally listened to us. Hence he was mistakenly under the impression that we were celebrating our anniversary. When we told him we were only on a date, he didn't pay attention to our response. At the end of the night we received a lovely gift to celebrate our anniversary!! Funny. My grouper was not my favorite. It reminded me of a TV dinner.

I came here on a Saturday night with my girlfriend to celebrate our 4 years of being together. The food was great as always and the service was good as well. The only slight downside as compared to other times I have been to the chart house was that there was a wedding being held the same night, so it was extra busy in general and the loud party upstairs could be heard downstairs. But other than that the food is always excellent, the view can not be beat, and the lava cake is so good. Definitely a restaurant I’d always recommend.
