“A Very Enjoyable Evening With Delicious Food”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

We ate here recently for a third time while visiting Monterey . The ambiance was very warm and inviting and our meals were so good. My husband had the Brandy Peppercorn Medallions, which he always enjoys here. Our son had the Prime Rib and Clam Chowder, which he devoured,. I had the short ribs and they were tender and juicy, along with the Chart House Chopped Salad, which also was very good.. We all shared the delicious Chart House Mud Pie. Our server was very attentive. All in all, a wonderful dining experience from beginning to end.

“Amazing food and good service”
Reviewed December 28, 2012

We ate at the Chart House on our first night in Monterey based on the recommendation of our hotel. The food was amazing and I imagine the views are great if you arrive earlier in the day (it was too dark to see the water when we arrived). We were promptly greeted upon arrival and only had to wait a few minutes for our table. The selection of fresh fish was amazing. We both started with their very fresh salad bar, which provided many options, including cavier. For dinner, my ahi tuna was perfectly prepared and the wasabi mashed potatoes had just the right level of heat and spice. My husband, who prefers super hot food, had the Jamaican Jerk fish - it was too spicy for me to try, but he said it was fantastic!!! The drinks were great as well. We finished our meal with their house specialty chocolate lava cake which was amazing!
This is a pricey restaurant, but the meal was worth every penny. The service was good as well - not over attentive nor did we need to flag down our waiter when we needed something. If you want a great meal, great meals and good service in Monterey, this is the place to go!

“Wonderful dinner with a view”
Reviewed December 21, 2012

It's been years since we'd been to a Chart House. This one in Monterey is on the ocean and the view, even in the dark, is fabulous--twinkly lights and beautiful waves lapping the shore. My husband had the gazpacho which was fabulous. His shrimp scampi was a great size and was tasty. I had one of the fresh fishes-superb flavor.
The salad bar was very pricey but 1/2 price if ordered with a meal.
We had the chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream--superb!

Service was fabulous. No exception!

“Just like a cruise ship!”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Sitting in this oceanside restaurant you might think that you are on your own veranda on a cruise ship sailing the world and making a stop in Monterey CA! The bartenders are friendly and like to get to know your name and the wait staff is very courteous and attending. They are friendly and want to make sure that your short time spent with them is enjoyable. We have been trying to stop in every other week or so for their happy hour. Its very nice with great fun drinks and delicious appetizers. We love the prime rib sliders! Plenty for two to share. We keep going back because of the great food, fun and view!
