Chart continues to provide good seafood that is very tasty and fresh. Prices are a bit higher than the last time I was there. Service was very good and attentive.

My husband and I went there for dinner our first night in Boston and we had a great meal with excellent service. I had the ahi tuna rare and it was awesome. We saw several yummy desserts go by but we ended up with the Boston cream pie which didn't disappoint!

I came in to this lovely restaurant by myself after a wedding and they were so warm and welcoming. I just wanted to be nostalgic so I had clam chowder ( rich and delicious) and a lobster roll which delighted me with the huge pieces of lobster claw bulging out of the roll. The waiter told me the rich history... More

My wife and I stayed at the Marriot Long Wharf and decided to try the Chart House for Dinner. We live in the suburbs and had always wanted to try this place. Even though we had made reservations a few weeks in advance, we did have to wait for 5-10 minutes until a table cleared. No big problem, but I... More

Great place for dinner and drinks. Walked over from the Marriott. Ended up eating here two nights. I had a business dinner here and they were also very impressed. If i go back to Boston i will be back for sure.

Went to the Chart House for Christmas Eve again this year. Fabulous. Outstanding service, food second to none. Always a treat. Even better than ever this year. Food melts in your mouth. Service very attentive, always there, before you need to ask.

I have had lots of prime rib and this place was my hands down best ever experience. I can't wait to go back! The restaurant serves great food. The calamari was fresh and perfectly battered and served with great side sauces. The building itself is very interesting. It has it's own unique history and be sure to ask about it.... More
