The Chase Ratings and Reviews
The past couple of times here I have been disappointed. First was with clients - we were kept waiting 45 minutes for table with reservation and this very martini-esque institution ran out of olives (what?). More recently went on a date (assumed last time was a one-off) and service was austere and felt rushed throughout. Waiter seemed to have a hard time responding to pace-related queues. Furthermore, floor manager appeared to go to every table to check how things were but ours - left an unsavory taste that offset what is admittedly the best cod I have ever tasted...
I have been to the chase several times and usually the food is really good but I have to say this time was a disappointment. All 3 of our meals were less than satisfactory but service was good. Everyone has an off night so hoping that’s all this was, just an off night .
Honestly this place was recommended by my boyfriend for a girls night out. He's a executive sous chef elsewhere and said he knew he could guarantee the food being good. But service was terible. My girlfriends arrived for a table on time. I understand I ran late but I was the only one driving and looking for parking. During the wait time for my arrival they did order drinks and apps. But once I got there our waiter was rude, absolutely impatient and commenting on my tardiness. I asked what was good on the menu and what he would recommend and got a simple reply that every thing was good just pick one. I to come from this industry and I believe that food knowledge is a must and that he could've directed me somewhere within the menu. Last but not least looking for our server for the bill was also a pain. Loved the food but would probably not take my VIPs here if I wanted to impress.
Service was terribly slow for a Wednesday night. A bit overpriced for the quality of food served. The squid was very good. The lobster cavatelli was just average. The seafood in the pan roast was also very average. The avocado was disappointing. The concord grape dessert was unedible and had definitely been sitting out for too long.
Very disappointing experience overall. The service was extremely slow and very disorganized for a restaurant of this caliber. It took about 20 minutes to get a drink order and the food was ok but not stellar by any means. Since this was a special occasion it was all the more disappointing. Atmosphere was pretty lackluster, nothing special.
Went to celebrate my new job during lunch.. had heard great reviews & so we were very excited. Very disappointing meal - we should have gone to Richmond Station or somewhere else nearby. Felt sore paying my bill.. I'm all for hefty dining bills when the experience matches, but The Chase was appallingly low-qual.
Tastefully decorated, though rather dimly lit spot. Great for seafood lovers, though the kitchen could do a better job scrubbing the oysters- they were all a bit too grainy.
The service is prompt and friendly. Would recommend for a romantic evening or dining with friends.
Our table ordered two salmon dinners tonight both of which were extremely dry and over cooked. When we mentioned to the waiter he asked why didn't you tell me earlier? He was extremely dismissive of our concern. Frankly when in a business meeting, it is not appropriate to send the meal back to be properly prepared. Looked like it sat under a warming light for an hour too long. Not fresh. Embarrassing for our client
The halibut was exceptional. The kitchen was very accommodating in preparing this dish for the table
The rice entre was very tasty, although a small portion
Menu has become mundane and limited for what once was a classy place to go for special occasions.
The wine list is overpriced for anyone except for FINE wine connoisseurs with discerning palettes and who have large expense accounts or unlimited budgets.
There are many great wines for the average person to choose from and that can sell at prices below $100.
It's so unfortunate that such a good restaurant has to have service staff so pretentious and up themselves they can't even offer a smile, except when the $1,500 bill is being passed to you. Smarten up, you're no better than the people eating at the restaurant. In saying that, the food is great, as is the accompanying wine list.
Overpriced. Asked for a table in the patio since it was my 30th birthday and they put us in a table near the bathroom (on the corridor). The food was well produced (the advocado/mango entree was really good) but I think it was overpriced. The service was ok but felt like they were making us leave the place. Nice complementary tasting entrees by the chef, though.
The server was absolutely FANTASTIC! She was so enthusiastic, knowledgeable (telling us to get the fish special), and attentive. The fish was indeed amazing, but the sides could have been better. We got the asparagus with hollandaise, but it wasn't anything special (Brothers Restaurant has a way better version of this dish), while the veggie/ratatouille side dish that comes with the special was okay but not amazing.
I am a regular but my last couple of visits very disappointing. The food is always great. But the service and attitude of staff were embarrassing!!!! I brought a NYC client and service was irregular, slow and lacked any empathy for our "experience". Really too bad because I used to rate this restaurant as my favourite.
My first mediocre experience at The Chase. Past business lunches have been outstanding. Because of my past great experiences I selected The Chase to have lunch with my wife and my son, as it is close to his downtown office. Somewhat disappointing experience - music had too much bass and loud, food - halibut, and scallops and pork belly were very good but not outstanding, service was so slow that the dessert and coffee were no charge. Hopefully next time will be a better experience.
