Amazing food and amazing service!! Top restaurant

We went for my husbands birthday. We have come here several times to celebrate his birthday, and it is always a great time. We started with the happy hour with great deals on appetizer and cocktail. Got there early and we had dinner next to the window ( not always possible) . I am a nature lover and we saw... More

I honestly cannot say anything good about our dining experience. With multiple dinners at Chart House in other locations through the years, this was the worst and we do not know if we will return to any one. We all wanted an exceptional salad and for the price, you should be able to expect it--especially in the area where they... More

They will not guarantee a table at the window, but we arrived early (about 6 p.m.) twice and got great tables with views of Monterey Bay. The food is very good. We had fresh fish, as well as a beef dish. The fried calamari was also quite tasty. The salad bar is large with varied options and one of our... More

The best thing about the Chart House is the view, and it is very very good. The food wasn't especially good, with only one local seafood offering. Good salad bar. The drinks were overpriced. The server was slow and inattentive. I wouldn't go back, ever.

The service was so bad that my wife got the water herself We called ahead to see if they had fresh sardines and they said they did. They didn't The food is nondescript, almost bland Prices were high Save your time and money and go someplace nice

Excellent service, excellent view, great decoration, normal food the best desert! Its one of the best restaurants in Cannery Road. Good atmosphere. Get a table by the window so do the reservation as early as possible. Don't be surprise that the exterior don't say how good the interior is. Its worth it to have dinner or lunch but please if...

I LOVE the Chart House restaurant chain. If you have read some of my other reviews I normally go to places off the beaten path, Since I am a CA girl (currently stuck in the Seattle area), I really miss this restaurant. You can count on great food and service every visit. Usually parking is a problem in this area... More
