When we arrived to celebrate our 10th anniversary we were very happy to be seated in a nice booth with a great view. To our surprise the menu was special printed noting our occasion. That was a neat touch. The food was superb, starting with the awesome salad bar, and the dessert the best we've had in years. (Chocolate lava... More

Stopped in for a cocktail and some appetizers. Service was friendly and prompt. Oysters and lobster spring rolls couldn't have been any fresher.

We had been at the Chart House several years ago and found the food very underwhelming. After reading all the glowing reviews, decided to give it another chance. Went on a week night with reservations and still found ourselves seated in the bar area, which negated the wonderful views and ambience the dining room offers. Chart Houses are famous for... More

We almost skipped the Chart House because it's a little pricey and kind of set off from the rest of Cannery Row. One of the locals insisted we at least go for Happy Hour. I'm so glad we did! They offered a limited menu of appetizers and cocktails. Nothing was over $7 and it was all (including the drinks) prepared... More

Just had a wonderful dinner watching the moon rise with the beautiful views at the Chart House. We did not have reservations but the hostess worked diligently to accommodate us and kept us informed as we waited. We asked if we could possibly get window seating, and we ended up with a corner window! Our server was excellent and very... More

The Chart House is a great place for special occasions, my wife and I came here for our anniversary. You get menus with your name and special occasion printed on them and we received a free desert, mud pie. We both had the prime rib and ordered the salad bar along with cream spinach. The prime rib was cooked perfectly,... More

We were seated at a beautiful corner table for 2 surrounded by gorgeous views of the bay from both windows. The ambience was romantic. The cocktails were terrific and we picked from their assortments of margaritas settling for a Blood orange margarita... delicious.. We had an amazing and inventive tuna appetizer consisting of 3 preparations of ahi followed by main... More

This is a great location for a high-end, quality meal. And the ambiance is Romantic. The Oysters-on-the-Half Shell taste clean and fresh. I am a lover of Lobster Bisque and their's is excellent. We had the Blood Orange Lacquered King Salmon and Ciopinno. Excellent with great flavors. The Salmon was flaky and cooked to perfection. Service is professional and efficient.... More
