It's a Chart House. What's not to like?

Engaging menu, good selection, bring you own wine. I've never had the same thing twice on the menu, and I've never been disappointed by with my entree.

Traveling up the coast on our anniversary/family getaway, we were looking for a romantic place for the hubby and I to have dinner for our anniversary. We chose The Chart House. We did not have reservations, but arriving just after 8:00, we only had a few minutes to wait, which was perfectly find as we were given a table that... More

Glad we are moving here this summer. We will definitely return and recommend Chart House to friends. The manager is very personable, checking on customers throughout the meal. Kim was a fabulous server, and the food was amazing! The ambiance and view of Monterey bay are hard to rival, and the prices are quite reasonable for the food and service... More

We made reservations a week in advance. Good thing we did, or else we probably were not going to get a table (Friday night). We had the coconut shrimp appetizer, and grilled salmon. Both were very good. Service was great too. It can be a bit busy at times with the staff quickly moving around to serve customers. But, whenever... More

We received our bill and were charged for 3 steaks, and then one was deleted, like we were done a favor. When I brought it to the attention of the waitress she asked the manager to deal with it. We just told the manager we expected a discount or some sort of comp for the steak not being correctly cooked... More

This Chart House is great and as good or better that other Chart Houses we have eaten in. What makes this one so special is the view. It is build out over the ocean and the sea life and sea birds will entertain you, so request a window table. They have a great salad bar and several fresh fish to... More

We went here for my b-day dinner, second time to do so. It was just as good as I remembered. I had steak and filet. Sooo yummy. The views of the Monterey Bay are wonderful, in the daytime and at night.

Fantastic high-end meal without pretentious atmosphere. Excellent goat cheese and chile stuffed squash blossoms, flavorful honey roasted shrimp and lime tres leeches with mango for dessert. Wonderful view of the water and helpful server making good suggestions added up to an extraordinary dining experience. Highly recommend for special occasions.

The Intercontinental Clermont Hotel made our reservations here and our table was waiting with a lovely view of the Bay. Our names were imprinted on the menu, which was a thrilling touch for our teens. They also provided a complementary dessert. Our meals were wonderful, with all the service you would expect from a Chart House. There are plenty of... More

I went there with my wife and another couple for dinner. The food and service was good, but not great. I've eaten at several other Chart House restaurants on the west coast and have really been pleased. Not so much here. The wine was selected by the waiter to match up perfectly with our dinners and it was not a... More
