My husband and I were in the area for golf, and we made reservations for dinner at the Chart House one night. It was AMAZING! I had the prime rib, and it was the best I had ever eaten anywhere. The entire experience was one I'll never forget. Great wine list, and the wait staff is top notch. If I... More

I came here for their great scallop dish only to find that they had a "new" version of the dish. The old version was tasty and delicious-the new was bland and boring. On the plus side service was very, very good and the seating was terrific. I loved the personalized menu and the individual attention the manager paid to each... More

We researched the nearby restaurants and this looked a good option for sea food, we were not disappointed. I had a very good chowder to start and then the Alaskan King Crab for main, it was excellent. My wife and daughter both had the Coconut crunchy shrimp which they loved. Not the cheapest meal we had during this trip to... More

The pourer at a wine tasting in Carmel told us to go to the Chart House for Happy Hour. We sat at the bar, something we seldom do, but always agree makes our experience better. We ordered 3 starters and drinks. It was all SO good we ordered a second round of everything. (Not driving) We loved everything about this... More

I have been to the Chart House many times over the years. I love the view as well as the food and service. If you are visiting Monterey Bay, you should have dinner at the Chart House or just relax with a drink & appetizer at the bar. Enjoy!

The food here used to be excellent, but this year it is not so good. The appetizer portions are huge. One portion could serve a table of four people and the presentation of crispy prawns was just bizarre. 5 prawns on a mini mountain of crispy noodles, that looked like a homage to a Hindu goddess. Nice staff.

Chart Houses typically offer a very good, very consistent dining experience. This one is no exception. The portions were generous, the menu choices quite extensive, and the service was very good. It offers some great views of the water.

Great service and great food. Really enjoyed the salad bar and the halibut was amazing. Loved the view by the window. We had made a reservation and mentioned it was our anniversary. The restaurant printed us special menus with our names on it for our anniversary. I thought that was such a nice touch. Would highly recommend Chart House
