FANTASTIC LOCATION AND FOOD

Arrived early after driving from San Francisco - it was Happy Hour. Had some cheap cocktails and decided on the happy hour bar menu instead of the restaurant menu.

We booked in advance on opentable and arrived early. I would recommend booking as this is a very busy spot. We were seated in the bar for a drink and quickly shown to our table by the window overlooking the bay. Lovely spot and great views over the bay, even able to watch the sea otters whilst waiting for our... More

Make reservations! We did and let them know it was our anniversary. Once we arrived, we asked for a window table (DO THIS!). We waited at the bar. The drinks were good and the staff was very friendly. We were told it would be an addional 45 minutes for a window table, but it was actually 20 or so. When... More

although Ive not visited the Chart Houses frequently recently, this was a nostalgic meal as far as the menu was specializing in fresh fish dishes. Reservations are recommended and there is free parking across the street.

The food is absolutely delicious. Beside's Schooner's Restaurant located in the Monterey Bay Plaza Hotel, this is my second top choice for finer dining. Menu a bit heavy on the seafood side which was great for me, but I met a few friends for cocktails and appetizers, and one of my friends does not each much seafood, so it was... More

We visited the Chart House Monterey for the first time. the view over the Monterey Bay is amazing from the seats directly at the Windows. The staff is amazingly friendly and our Waiter took even some time to explain about the many seefood dishes they have available. You really Need to try the Rib-eye Steak You can choose from 3...

The food was terrific. We had the tuna tartar appetizer to start. It is huge. The flavors are awesome. I ate the bass with pineapple rice and habanero sauce. It sounded weird but it works. The rice was out of this world. My only small gripe about the food is the dessert. The molten lava cake was slightly overcooked so... More

The Chart House offers a beautiful view as well as excellent food. We were treated like VIP guests with superior service offered. We made reservations and requested a window seat and were offered a beautiful view of the Bay with the moon rising at sunset. The prime rib was cooked to perfection. The shrimp cocktail appetizer offers a tasty kick.... More
