A real local treasure right on the water with excellent views. The early bird special is one of the best on the Montetey Peninsula. Just order before 5:30 for 9.95. Great deal. Plentiful and delicious.

The servers are professional and friendly, the location is visually stimulating, the food is unsurpassed, have the Prime Rib! The salad bar is the best, huge and varied with offerings such as Hearts of Palm, exotic fresh fruit, pistachios, fresh farm-to-table greens and vegetables like fresh beets. It is expensive but for a special occasion it is a sure bet!... More

Great job on: presentation, well prepared, really well priced. Prime is what is missing. Having everything on place, why not use prime on your Prime Rib? people who can afford your restaurant can pay for the best. This should be 4.75

The Charthouse Monterey is the epitome of a well done restaurant. Service is impeccable, and the food is beautifully presented. Prices are fairly high, but worth it for a special experience.

The vibe is a little snotty from the staff. Not sure why. The waiter seemed "amused" that we were dining there, that's the best way I can describe it. The food was decent, pretty big portions. We got talked into the lava cake like it's some kind of exotic big deal. It was dry and did not lava at all,... More

As we have always liked the food and service at The Chart House restaurants, we came here for my wife's birthday. We were not disappointed, but there were some downsides. Before the meal I ordered a Negroni, fully expecting that a top of the line restaurant would know what it is and how to prepare it. I was wrong. The... More

We ate here Christmas night. The service wasn't the friendliest and my husband's credit card was not returned with the check which prompted the need to track it down. Food portions were good, but we were surprised that more local or west coast fish were not on the menu. All fish but one were farm raised.

Three couples; birthday. We like good food and wine. The food was above my expectations - had thought it'd be much more average and touristy. Likewise re the service - friendly, not pushy, well-paced. Only quibble: we opened four bottles of wine (special bottles we brought). Yes, they're welcome to charge corkage, but often restaurants will waive some or all... More

Coming from a local resident here. This is a chain restaurant where you will pay a premium not for the food, but for the waterfront location. Food and service are generally acceptable, but the menu is uninspired, overpriced. Virtually no local seafood choices which is absurd considering the commercial wharf is very close by. Dishes don't convey a personal touch.... More

We missed the Chart House in Tampa earlier this year but this certainly made up for that. Our table was next to the windows and offered superb views across the shore line. Menu choice is substantial and, of course, the fish choice excellent. We had a very friendly and efficient waitress and enjoyed a superb white wine. Parking is easy,... More
