made last minute reservation on drive to Monterey. Upon our arrival a few hours later, was greeted with "Happy Anniversary" and our personalized menus. Nice touch. View was grand, food and service was excellent. Nice to have Gluten Free menu for the wife as well. Definately a place to check out.

My wife and I had reservations at Chart House for our wedding anniversary, and enjoyed it so much, we came back the next evening.

The service is very friendly and efficient. The food was fabulous. The oysters rockefeller were out of this world.

The lava cake was really good (even if you do commit to it at the start of the meal) and not too rich to enjoy at the end.

Lovely views, and good location in Cannery Row, made Chart House a great experience.

We came here to celebrate our 4 year anniversary and was welcomed with a very nice server. They made our menus special by putting "Happy 4th Anniversary" on the top of it, which was a very nice touch. We were unsure what to expect from this restaurant since it is in the middle of the tourist area, but it proved us wrong. The food was delicious, seafood was fresh, and the view was amazing.

It is a fine dining place, but we didn't find it as expensive as we thought. They had specials on buying bottles of wine and the average dinner entree was around 25-30 dollars. We ended our dinner with dessert, which they added a little candle to say "Happy Anniversary" to us. Altogether a fantastic place to celebrate any special occasion.

This was a really lovely dining experience, from the moment of walking in to the warm goodbyes from staff on the way out. The restaurant is unassuming from the street entrance, but a beautiful, spacious,high-ceilinged space overlooking Monterey Bay inside. We scored a fabulous table right by the window, and as night fell we could see otters, harbour seals, cormorants and even a homeward-bound penguin as we ate. We were beautifully looked after: the menu had been customised to welcome us by name, and we were offered a complimentary signature dessert (the chocolate lava cake - spectacular). I had the appetiser special - a very generous stack of shrimp and crab, diced mango and avocado; husband enjoyed his clam chowder bowl. Cocktails were excellent - perfectly presented (Instagram-worthy but we refrained). For entree I had the shrimp cooked on cedar plank - a really distinctive and interesting flavor with an ample serve of roast summer vegetables (slightly too crunchy but still good). Husband had tuna with wasabi mash potatoes and enjoyed it very much. A genuinely memorable evening; I'd rate this restaurant very highly and encourage a visit! We'd love to return.

We ate here three times during our stay in Monterey. Each time the food was AMAZING. I had tuna, mahi, and shrimp. My husband had prime rib twice and said it was the best ever. They have really good service and great appetizers as well.
