“Great food, fantastic view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

We had one of our final dinners here when in Scottsdale. Service was as expected impeccable (one small complaint would be the managers attitude which seemed a bit short for us, terse would be a better word). We had a seat by the window facing the lake which was arranged by the concierge at our hotel. A really nice touch was menus printed with our names on them! never seen that before. They then wrapped them in a ribbon to take with us. A nice touch. I ordered a soup which was delicious and a steak which was melt in your mouth and perfectly cooked. I was driving so just had water but take a taxi and enjoy a glass of wine with the meal.

All in all it was great, although the group at a table behind us did manage to allow their two small children to squeeze past our tables and press their heads against the glass window disturbing our view and the peace and quiet we anticipated with their lack of manners. We have children so are not immune however there is a time and place and in a restaurant of this quality one would expect parents to either not bring kids or teach them how to behave in such a place. This group just let them run around the place with no control or concern for other diners. It would have been nice if the restaurant manager had taken a little action and asked them to rein in the children.

“Great service, views, and meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

I took my wife here for her birthday. Made a reservation in advance. To make their guests feel special, they had personalized menu's for us when we were seated. The water and skyline view is great to enjoy your meal with. Especially since I like to look at the city, not go into it! The meals are not cheap, but the food and atmosphere is top notch. Don't forget to order the lava cake at the start of your meal for dessert!

“View Spectacular, Attentive Service, Food Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

Went Thanksgiving Day for the $37.99 P/P buffet dinner. The rather basic food choices were just okay, some items better than others; the food certainly did not "wow" me. However, the service was pretty good, which partially makes up for the shortcomings of the food. What's this restaurant really has going for it is it's really spectacular views of Manhattan across the Hudson. Bottom line: go here for drinks & the views, but eat elsewhere.

“great dinner with the NYC skyline in the background”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

My girlfriend too me to the Chart House for my birthday, and we had a wonderful evening and a great dinner. We wanted to sit by the window, to have dinner with the view of the NYC Skyline, so there was an additional 20 minute wait for that, but it was well worth it. You just can’t beat a great dinner with NYC in the background.

The dinner was wonderful. I got an amazing tuna steak, and she got some type of steak. She also got a potato side dish, wrapped in bacon, that she loved. We had a really nice evening, and will definitely be returning to the Chart House in the future. We also got to take some pictures outside with NYC behind us, all very great shots. They have a patio, so our plan is to come back when the weather is nice so we can eat outside.

They have very unique martinis too, definitely worth trying. The service was also great, and thank god they didn’t sing happy birthday to me!

Chart House was really great, I’d definitely recommend it.

“A quiet dinner for two”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us so we made 6:00 pm reservations before spending the day knocking around Scottsdale. We got there about 5:45 and we cordially greeted. Gave our name and were promptly seated at one of the window tables overlooking the lake. Was surprised to see our name printed on the menu we were given. Our waitress "Amanda" was a delight. The food was absolutely great. Everything about the whole experience was wonderful.
