My wife and I were staying at the Spindrift Inn and the concierge made a reservation at the Chart House for us. We had a corner table looking directly over the bay. Sweet! The staff greeted us as VIP's, which the reservation marker stated as such. When the menus came, it actually had our last name printed at the top.... More

The ambiance seems nice when you walk in; however, the tables were so close together that our party was bumped from all sides. If you want to feel like herded cattle, then this is your place. The food was good, but when paying over 240 dollars for a group meal, I expect to have space to eat.

When you make your reservation, ask for an ocean view - the views of the wildlife and the sunset are spectacular. Service was excellent. Food was almost excellent. Great ingredients (especially seafood) well cooked. For my taste the food was a little 1980's - delicious but very rich .... lots of different flavors fighting for dominance.

made last minute reservation on drive to Monterey. Upon our arrival a few hours later, was greeted with "Happy Anniversary" and our personalized menus. Nice touch. View was grand, food and service was excellent. Nice to have Gluten Free menu for the wife as well. Definately a place to check out.

My wife and I had reservations at Chart House for our wedding anniversary, and enjoyed it so much, we came back the next evening. The service is very friendly and efficient. The food was fabulous. The oysters rockefeller were out of this world. The lava cake was really good (even if you do commit to it at the start of... More

We came here to celebrate our 4 year anniversary and was welcomed with a very nice server. They made our menus special by putting "Happy 4th Anniversary" on the top of it, which was a very nice touch. We were unsure what to expect from this restaurant since it is in the middle of the tourist area, but it proved... More

This was a really lovely dining experience, from the moment of walking in to the warm goodbyes from staff on the way out. The restaurant is unassuming from the street entrance, but a beautiful, spacious,high-ceilinged space overlooking Monterey Bay inside. We scored a fabulous table right by the window, and as night fell we could see otters, harbour seals, cormorants... More

We ate here three times during our stay in Monterey. Each time the food was AMAZING. I had tuna, mahi, and shrimp. My husband had prime rib twice and said it was the best ever. They have really good service and great appetizers as well.

This restaurant was very "gluten free friendly" with a full GF menu offered alongside their regular menu. Our server Emily was very attentive and friendly. They offered a good selection of seafood. We specifically had oysters, halibut, shrimp and sides. With a glass of wine the meal was billed at $100. The setting was very attractive with most tables having... More

Wonderful view from out table. The food was good but we expected more from a Landry's property. Our server was not very attentive and they were not that busy when we were in there.
