Great steak!

They managed to get a table for 8 of us during Monterey car week, and food and service were first class. Thank you!

The Charthouse Monterey is exceptional for a chain restaurant. It is built over the water with incredible Monterey Bay views. The food is steakhouse standard at reasonable prices. This is one of the few restaurants remaining with an excellent salad bar. Warning-some tables look out directly into the hotel rrooms at the adjacent Monterey Plaza Hotel. Ask for a full... More

We visited the Chart House during car week in Monterey, and the location couldn't have been more perfect to us, as one of the event was right on Cannery, so we basically were right there. We had a reservation and we seated right away. Both bar area and dining room were very busy and on the loud side, to which... More

Truly fabulous views, ambiance and food. This restaurant has it all. Be sure and make reservations and when you get there insist on a window table - it is worth the wait. The food is wonderful (try the purple smashed potatoes and the crab stack as well as the spring rolls) - and the service staff is friendly. Yummy and... More

Probably one of the best steaks I've ever had. Even the mashed potatoes an asparagus were delicious!! I definitely would go back and I would recommend or to... More

Nice upscale restaurant. Fine dining. Nice view of the Bay. But... The menu as a limited offering. The service was really bad (for this type of restaurant, this is an insult). We were four and we ordered the Cioppino dish. We were not impressed by this plate. This was our first experience with the chart house, and our last one.... More

The views from the restaurant are fabulous. The service is always great and so is the food. The atmosphere is very relaxing after a long day on the road or sightseeing.

This place was amazing. We got a window seat overlooking the bay, and the lightning storm that night. Wait staff was outstanding. Good wine, better food. Calamari, 9 oz Bleu Cheese Filet with steamed asparagus, Seabass, and a lava cake. All to die for. Literally, I ate way too much. Not cheap but totally worth it. Highly recommended. (Make a... More
