Overall, the food was fine. The Crab, Avocado & Mango Stack set the bar high and the tempo for what I felt would be an excellent experience however not to be over critical the gazpacho tasted more like a salsa with tomato juice added. The Pine Nut Crusted Shrimp Linguine was very tasty and the portion served to feed a hungry dinner. There is nothing more frustration to me that when I go to a restaurant that I made a reservation a week prior and arrive fifteen minutes early to the reservation time and have to wait twenty minutes after the reservation time to be seated! This would be understandable if I were to look around and see no empty tables! Just a big turn off and puts the food behind a curve that the Chart House did not surpass. I would recommend to anyone in the area however you pass allot of fine restaurants to get there that would be just as good if not better.

It is hotter than hades in here because the fire alarm keeps going off. A wonderful experience ruined because the management does not have sense enough to comp drinks or dessert to compensate for the misery. And now the computers are down and we cannot get checks. No return here.

Even though we were late to our 10:15 reservation (and they closed at 11pm) we were given the best service and awesome food. We had the crab cake dinner, and stuffed shrimp. Delicious!!!! The appetizer was a little late, but we were told that it was a small back up with that chef. I can appreciate the update. The waiter was so personable and funny. Enjoyed his stellar service. Would gladly eat there again (I am curious of how the crab soup tasted...it seemed intriguing by the description).
