Not quite in the very good category. Probably 3.75 out of 5. Good ambience and view pushes it up to a 4 though. Drinks, food and service.

Most Chart House Restaurants have a good view, and the one in Alexandria is no exception. Whether you want to take a visitor from out of town to see the beautiful view or take a co-worker to lunch to impress, Chart House is an excellent location. For lunch the food is affordable and excellent. I would definitely keep going back.

This was my first trip to the DC area and a couple of coworkers and I went to Chart House for dinner on the first night of our trip. I tend to steer towards cheaper, hidden gems but always enjoy a fancy dinner ever now and then. I was really impressed with Alexandria and thoroughly enjoyed the view of the... More

We saved the "best dinner" for our last night in town. We each ordered two apps as our meals. Sadly, they took about an hour to get to us (we each ordered a soup too???) While we waited we weren't checked in on by our waitress, who was sweet as could be, but clearly a little overwhelmed. However, the manager... More

This is my all time favorite place to dine!! No matter if it's dinner or lunch you can't go wrong at the Chart House. We have never had a bad meal or service yet!! My husband and I treat ourselves to delicious dinners while enjoying the view of the Potomac River. At night the view of the National Harbor from... More

This is a beautiful establishment. My meal was perfectly prepared. The cocktails were beautiful, the waiter was attentive. Our visit there on a Sunday evening was peaceful and relaxing and we enjoyed a short walk after along the waterfront.

Beautiful ambience overlooking the water. We had reservations on a Saturday night, and was seated right away. Our waiter was great. Food was for fulfilling, ordered pork chops and stuff flounder for dinner. Shrimp cocktail and crab shrimp mango dish as appetizers. I recommend this place for date night.

Great Wednesday night dinner on the water. Arrived around 7:00pm with no reservation and was seated immediately, with a nice window seat. Service was exceptional, food was amazing, and the lava cake is a must order! We frequent Chart House often however it is always the Annapolis location. We will be returning to this location soon!

The location is great, especially for the water side views, and a window side table is a top initial request at this place. The service is top form, and the food is good, but not the absolute best I have ever had. The menu does offer a variety of entree's and appetizers to cater to diverse tastes, but I tend... More
