If you have lived in California for more than a couple of years you have probably eaten at a Chart House. This is one of the good ones. Sweeping views of Monterey Bay next to the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa. We had a large party and we were taken care of admirably. Everyone enjoyed their food. We had a mixture of both seafood eaters as well as beef.

We had read reviews about how expensive Chart House can be and this may be true of the restaurant. However, happy hour drinks are great value (can't argue with $4 for a gin and tonic and 50 cents more to make it a double!). We initially planned to go there for just for drinks but when we saw bar food arrive for the couple next to us, we were very impressed with the quality of the food, so decided to order some to share.
As we were tiring of U.S sized portions, we just ordered 3 'appetizers' but there was more than enough and the food was delicious, reasonably priced and nicely presented.
The staff are efficient and friendly. This place is popular and its easy to see why.

We stopped in here for happy hour and stayed to eat. The drinks are good value and the bar food was very good. I think the main restaurant looked overpriced but eating at the bar which lot of locals appeared to be doing seemed the smart thing to do.

We are both fish lovers and this restaurant has an excellent selection on the menu. We called in and booked in the afteroon and they were very friendly.

We did think it was a bit strange that we had to pay our bar bill (2 drinks) before we could go to our table for dinner - its usual to have only one bill in a restaurant in our experience.

Starters range from $7.99 - $15.99 (the top end seeming quite pricey to me) but there is a good selection of hot and cold dishes. Main fish courses $26.99 up to $40.99. We didn't have dessert, two courses were sufficient. The food was very good.

We were seated at a window table and it was nice to watch the sea rolling in over the rocks. Our waitress was very attentive but not overly intrusive which was good.
