    We were seated and then ignored for too long. Water & bread arrived ASAP but we had to wave at someone to get their attention for our drink order after sitting too long. Everything else was wonderful. Delicious food and stayed warm outside on a cool evening.

    Started off bad and went down hill. My wine - sent back - must have been bottom of the bottle, it was bitter and tasted terrible. So replaced with another wine. Dinner took about 75 mins to arrive and restaurant was not fully packed, but appeared to be short staff. Our dinners came. Of the 6, 5 were hot. Mine was cold. I sent it back. It came back as other were mostly done, only to realize they reheated my previous so now the chicken was so tough you can’t cut it. Horrible. We never got water refilled. Had to ask other staff for help when our waiter was MIA. Waiter brought dessert to apologize, not his fault. However I don’t eat what he brought so he brought another dessert. It was so dry. Not good at all. All in all our time as a family was priceless… but this restaurant would be one I would not go back too.

    I used to love Chase, so I hate not being able to rave. The food was fine but not outstanding, and the prices have gone up a lot. I don't think my chicken picatta with fettucini was worth $31. Interior wasn't as festive as it used to be. I just am not a fan of the current owners.

    We were hungry, and wanted it to be good. They told us off the bat that they were out of bread because of the Thanksgiving holiday. The food was just OK and seemed overpriced for what it was. I hate leaving bad reviews but it really was way less than we expected. They eventually did bring bread, but it was cold and at the end of the meal. We found it interesting that they had bread that we could purchase, but didn’t have free bread for the table. The meal was pricey, considering the quality. We left feeling that we would definitely not eat there again.

    Worst server ever! He had zero knowledge of the items listed on the menu. He forgot our included salads and then implied that they were an extra charge. In spite of him working there for 18 months, he was awkward and generally inattentive. He was so terrible that even the average/good food could not make up for his bad service!

    We had dinner at Chase prior to going to the SB bowl Looked like an inviting place for a couple of tourists. Menu is robust. Waitress suggested that their piccata dishes were their specialty so I ordered the calamari steak piccata with fettuccine. Sorry to say the lemon sauce was very thick like out of a jar. The calamari was thin and tasteless. The fettuccine was too rich to eat. The wines, of which we had a rose with our salad and Chardonnay with our meal were both excellent. All in all a fair experience
