While it is a chain restaurant, there is consistency in service, food and ambiance that's hard to beat.

Great for a romantic dinner, but also for gathering with friends, or a company party. My last experience there was a company holiday party. Our server was on point with every order, service was fast and the food was delicious, not to mention the beautiful view of the Alexandria waterfront. You definitely pay for the location, but if you're looking... More

We took my godson here last month to celebrate his completion of a master's degree program. I made a dinner reservation, asked for a window seat if possible, and something a bit festive for dessert to note his accomplishment. Chart House went the extra mile to make the evening very special for us! We had a window seat with a... More

We have recently started frequenting here and using as our "go to" restaurant~especially with out of town guests. The food is average, but the view is great! We even spent Thanksgiving here and liked that there was a regular menu in addition to turkey dinner~none of us ate turkey!! The bar area is nice for enjoying conversation....Service has been good.

Two friends and I met for dinner at this establishment. Everything that could go wrong did including a waiter spilling wine all over one of my friends and while accidents do happen I usually focus on the response. In the this case, the waiter took his time getting a towel to clean up with, referred to my female friend as... More

It was a random dinner. Our bill was a bill for 4 people not 2, but the food was very tasty. I had crab cakes and so far they have been the best I have ever had. I think on top of paying for the food you will also be paying for the ambiance and service.

We had lunch here late December 2014. The view was spectacular. Got pictures of the Capital Building from their landing. Food was very good and service was attentive. Would definitely eat here again..
