Dined 6 days ago

We have been coming to Chaya for many, many years. We were a party of 6, with one 4 year old. It was Sunday night before MLK holiday. Our waiter has only been with Chaya for 1 month. The service was slow. We are spoiled and used to our OVER THE TOP SERVICE here. Missing all of our favorite people, where did you all go??? Two of us ate the flat iron steak, T-bone unavailable. It was great! Scallop risotto very good. Sushi/Sashimi, very good. Everyone was trying to help each other out with the short amount of wait staff.

The happy hour cocktails and bites were great. some items like a grilled octopus salad were tastier on the happy hour menu than the regular menu. We tried oysters, grilled calamari, sushi. All were good. The two items that were a total miss were two sides: organic grilled mushrooms and shishito peppers. The peppers were mostly too hot. Usually they are more flavorful and less spicy. And mushrooms were absolutely tasteless, as if the chef forgot to add any condiments to them. Overall, I enjoyed the place. It had a nice decor and cozy atmosphere.

The food and service were good, the ambience was a little strange due to the bar being next to restaurant. I think there should be some seperation from the casual bar playing sports and the formal dining space.

Excellent service and delicious food--great flavors, fresh ingredients--in a beautiful physical space. The overall vibe was awesome, too. All this plus easy parking made the entire experience wonderful.

Went day before New Year's Eve. All of the food was dry/overcooked. Inadequate portions for the price and noise. Disappointed. We had a nice experience here before the remodel, but won't be coming back after this experience.

Great food and atmosphere, but what I want to highlight here is their service and how they value customer's experience. I ordered the Angus steak, but we had waited for ~20 mins due to some miscommunication with the restaurant. After being noticed, the general manager responded nicely and quickly to us and treated us the steak as well as chef's special dessert. Sometime mistake could happen, but their timely and genuine apology successfully made up our dining experience.
