Awesome Dinner

First off, happy hour offers some excellent food for great prices. The lettuce wraps, the calamari, the martini! Dinner by the window overlooking waves breaking on the shore was great too. Cioppino and mahi mahi encrusted with nuts; all good!

I love visiting Monterey, and we always stay at the Monterey Plaza Hotel which is right next door to the Chart House. It seemed to be an unassuming place from the outside, so we never really gave it much of a thought. On our last trip out in September, my husband and I decided to stop for cocktails and an... More

This is one of our "go to" places for happy hour cocktails and food! The atmosphere is always friendly and a fun walk on Cannery Row!

Great service, excellent views and good food. Celebrated wedding anniversary and wanted special meal and got it! Dessert was signature Lava Cake topped with chocolate crusted ice cream. So worth the 30 minutes advance ordering requirement. Very special evening. Chart House not to be missed while in Monterey!

Enjoyed a most delicious evening meal in a wonderful setting, right overlooking the sea. The service & food of the highest standard & one of the best we have had in a long time. It has a lovely relaxed atmosphere & was very busy the night we were there.

We came for happy hour which is at the bar and the few tables in the bar. The drinks were pretty decent priced- a peach mojito was $6 and was amazing and a glass of wine was $5. They have a great choice for appetizers too. We had the fire cracker shrimp and the lettuce wraps... both were hands down... More

I love going here around sunset when you can still see out the gorgeous windows onto the bay. My simple favorite is the massive salad bar... and the wine/cocktail selection is lovely, too.
