“The design of the interior was very cool!”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

The wood working was very special in this restaurant. The food $$ is probably in line with that area. We had the prime rib and that was good, but not outstanding. A little to rare for many of the folks we had with. The chocolate lava cake was the excellent!

“A very good meal”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

My wife and I made reservations for a Sunday dinner as we were visiting San Francisco for an extended weekend and decided to take a day driving down the coast to Monterey. While we were disappointed in Moneterey (the Wharf and the Cannery area's shops seemed a little worse for wear since our visit 10 years ago), we did find the Chart House to be very good. Parking lot's too small and we ended up way down the street on a meter. We had an early (5pm) reservation as we needed to drive back up to SFO. My wife ordered the fixed three-course meal and had clam chowder, short ribs and mud pie. I had the grilled salmon and a baked potato. Both of our meals were excellent. The service was good and the staff was friendly. The only thing that was a little off-putting was they constant "sales" atmosphere ... over selling various menu items, pushing the Landry's brand / Landry's club, etc. Seemed a little out of step with the atompshere of the restaurant and was a distraction. All in all, we had a good meal and enjoyed our visit.

“Pleasant surprise!”
Reviewed January 19, 2014

Being a local, we don't think much about Cannery Row (touristy!). Well walking on the bike trail G and I decided to walk through Cannery Row. As we passed the Monterey Plaza Hotel the Chart House restaurant appeared. It's a great location right on the ocean and it's been there forever. We went there many years ago when it first opened and they didn't take reservations so we never went back because we didn't want to wait for a table. Well they now take reservations so we decided to give it another try. Friday night five of us arrived and enjoyed a pleasant surprise. Even at 6:45 the place was packed but we only waited about five minutes for a table. Because we were five we couldn't get a window table with are four tops but we still had a great view of the bay.
Two of us enjoy the prime rib and three had the fish. Food was outstanding especially the bake potato with everything. I usually avoid the baked potato and restaurants because they're usually not very good . The salad bar is not what it used to be but still a good addition to the meal. All in all we had a great time and were sorry we had waited 25 years to come back!

“On the expensive side”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

I thought the service was a little indifferent and the food pretty average for the prices one paid. And it was on New Year's day, my birthday!
