Great view, very good food, but expect a long wait to be seated even with reservations

We ate at the Chart House on Sat. 1/9/16. We had made 7:30 pm reservations a couple of months before. We arrived early and had a drink in the bar. The bar is very nice, great view of the city and nice wait staff. Note: you can't combine your bar and dinner tab, you'll need to settle your bar tab... read more

Great food in the Landry's style of fine dining. Great service and a wonderful view of San Antonio from on top of Hemisphere Tower.

We had a variety of dishes between the 4 of us and all were excellent. The service was great and so was the view.

My husband and I went to this restaurant for dinner the last night of our vacation. We both ordered prime rib, a glass of Malbec, and shared a spinach side dish. Positive comments: the food was quite good - well prepared and nicely presented. Our waiter was efficient and attentive, and best of all, the view is spectacular. Negative comments:... More

Dinner was great and the view was amazing!!! Made reservation for my wife birthday, we were impressed that the waiter knew her name and also wish her happy bday when he first came to the table. Only negative i have is that they should tell you about getting there early due to the line at the elevator.

Had dinner here with friends. Food was good. Very pricey due to location. Tables arare actually a long counter to allow as many diners as possible and everyone faces the windows for the view. The restauant rotates slowly, once every hour, so you view changes. Service was hit or miss depending on how busy it is. If seated on top... More

I ate the Chicken Francese and it was probably the best chicken I have ever had in my life. My husband had a steak and he was not disappointed. I love the view and the uniqueness of the restaurant. You definitely want to add this stop to your trip. Don't spend your money to pay and go to the observation... More

Our server was so sweet. Great service. The food takes a little longer, but you don't want to be in a hurry, you have to take in the view from the rotating restaurant. Relax enjoy the experience.

Have gone to Chart House, NJ and the restaurant layout is the same set up. The food is phenomenal, prime rib you can cut with a fork, side dishes big enough to serve two and the Choclate Lava cake and the Soufflé are worth the visit by themselves.

We had a great meal here with very good service. The view is great. The only downside was it was a little cold in the restaurant.
