We all agreed this was one of the worst dining experiences each of us has ever had, mostly because of the awful treatment from the front of the house. We were a group of 5-- a rare gathering of close family from L.A., FL, Boston and Hoboken. One of our party, my mom, is 83 and a slow, careful walker. We arrived just short of 15 minutes late and, instead of being welcomed, were told they gave our table away! No one was the least bit personable or apologetic or accommodating. The noise and energy levels were very high. It took 45 minutes before we were seated. It took another hour for us to receive our entrees (after the wait for our table, it felt like forever). The food overall was fair. We were given bread dishes, but never served bread. My and my husband's prime rib (medium) was dry and chewy. My daughters' broccoli side dishes were absolutely raw. I made the original reservation; my mom can't eat a lot of salt and likes traditional cuisine, and I thought Chart House would be a reliable high-end chain. We were reimbursed for a couple of meals ($70) because we complained to one of the managers on the night in question. That was certainly appropriate and appreciated. But didn't make up for the unpleasantness and aggravation. None of hope to return!

Perfect for a slow paced dinner where you get to enjoy each others company and the atmosphere for a while without feeling like they’re slow - perfect place to celebrate a special occasion - they even personalized the menu to wish a happy anniversary which was a nice touch

I’ve been coming to the Chart House for years. I live in the area and my girlfriend loves the views of the city. This experience ruined by the hostess! My girlfriend was commuting from work and was stuck behind a car accident. I was at the restaurant and made my way to the bar while I waited. When my girlfriend finally got there about 40 minutes past our reservation time I made my way over to be seated. I was scolded by the hostess that they only hold tables for 15 minutes and we were late. I told her if it’s a problem I can take my business and money elsewhere. My girlfriend was tired and stressed from an extra 40 minutes in traffic and instead of being hospitable, I was given attitude. What really irked me was the fact that I checked open table and there were open reservations right when we were being seated. The place was not packed, it was not as if there were no seats available, but to them it was a huge deal.

As we were dining I heard the same women giving problems to another family asking to sit in a window seat. The hostess was snobby and said other people were waiting for that seat and it was reserved and window seats were not guaranteed; we were next to the table for another hour and no one came to that table. I was highly turned off by the attitude, the place isn’t THAT great to be turning away paying customers like that.

The food was okay and the waiter was great. He saved the night. Unfortunately based on this experience I think I will be putting the Chart House on the back burner for a bit.

Yes, it's expensive, but you're paying for the view (only problem they're building some new buildings, so that's not so attractive to the NYC skyline), but the food was good too. Next time, I would eat outside, better view, would just bring a warmer sweater b/c it was windy. Also, I will come back to try the happy hour. But, overall, everything was great. Treated very well & good service.

The waiter at our table 56/1 , JASON is horrible and so unfriendly. He did not have a smile for the whole time ( 2 hours ) I was there. Today. I mentioned to me I came to Chart House every week. He is still so unfriendly and unhappy looking.

I was in Chart house last week. Another waitress was 100 % better and much friendly than JASON.

Feel so sorry for Chart house. Good restaurant but some waiters’s service is so horrible! Very unfriendly.

I am going to this restaurant again next week. Within 2 weeks, I have been to this restaurant three times because my friends and families want to see the view otherwise I will not go back because of the rude and unfriendly service.

While visiting family in New jersey -- went for late lunch on a beautiful sunny day, which provided an awesome panoramic view of the Hudson river and Manhattan skyline. The food was delicious and service was attentive without being annoying. Loved everything and will definitely be back next time we are in the area.

Everything was top notch. Not a single complaint. Was beyond impressed with how they took note of it being my girlfriend’s birthday and every single person that assisted us from the hostess to waitress made sure to wish her a Happy Birthday. Even the dessert had Happy Birthday written on it with her name. It was a great experience.

Food was excellent. Service left something to be desired. Server did not tell us of and special offerings which i know existed from Chart House email and refreshing a drink took too long. Also server seemed to disappear. Waited over 30 minutes to get check. Had to ask a manager. Couple next to us were waiting 40 mins to order. That is unacceptable for a restaurant of this caliber.

A magnificent dining experience along the banks of the Hudson River with clear views of Manhattan's spectacular skyscrapers. The food is very fresh and top-quality with great attention to detail and focus of the dining staff to ensure every order comes out the way the restaurant's guests would like it. Very professional wait staff who engage and come across as customer-centric. Overall, a very pleasant, fancy dining experience that should be a staple of a visit to New York City.

We went here for our daughters birthday and from the moment we walked in until we left we were treated like royalty. There are not enough words to describe how amazing an experience this was. The menu even had our daughters name on top!!!!!!!!! Dennis, our waiter was knowledgeable, efficient , friendly and a pleasure. Thank you Chart House for being a place to make magical memories.

The wait wasn't long since we made a reservation. The food took too long to arrive. The food menu was limited. It is expensive. This was my first time being in this place and I had high expectations based on my coworker recommendation. It was my husband's birthday and he wasn't feeling it. The food is not worth the price. Like a lot of people say it is like we are paying for the view.

came here for significant others birthday. Our waitress was very very slow. Asked for condiments and she took so long that by the time she came back we were done with our food. When we initially sat it took 10 minutes for a server to greet us and another ten to get waters! Why am i paying SO MUCH MONEY FOR SUCH POOR SERVICE?? When I go to a nice fancy restaurant like this, i expect exceptional service, not poor subpar restaurant service. Do better Chart House.

My husband and I enjoy seating outside by the Hudson River, having our dinner, and watching the skyline of Manhattan and activities that happened on the Hundson River from sunset into the night. Anyone who comes to New York City, would really enjoy the scenery of Manhattan skyline. Food never disappoints us. It can get pricy after a two-hour meal, but the ambiance is priceless. Will recommend this Chart House to all the locals, and visitors to this lively city.

Great views of NYC skyline, appetizers, cocktails and desert keep me coming back. As for dinner, mains are poor to average at best in this price point and not worth the money. Better meals easily available in the area sans the view.
