Great Customer Service & good food – We celebrated our anniversary Friday at Chart House and had a great time there.
Service was exemplary and our waiter was spot-on with his recommendation of the Sea Bass, which was wonderful.
We are out of town quite a bit but will definitely make it back to Chart House again soon.
DO NOT GO THERE IF YOU HAVE ANY FOOD ALLERGIES! – My wife has an allergy to dairy; if any butter is used in cooking, she will become very ill. We told this to the waiter, and asked him for three dishes to confirm with the kitchen that there was no dairy used in its preparation. He told us the grilled salmon was clear, so she ordered that dish.
Shortly after getting home, she got violently ill. I called the restaurant and spoke to the manager about the food. His first response when I mentioned an allergy was to say that it was not their food - she must have eaten something else. When I told him that was not possible (she had not eaten for 5 hours before that, and prepared that meal herself) he told me it could be staph in the fish, but that she would get over that (most restaurants are a bit more concerned about bad food, since a restaurant lives and dies by the quality of its food). I pushed him to check with the chef, to confirm that it was something they prepared. He called me back shortly after that, to confirm that, despite their promises, they had used a bit of butter in the rice that was served with the fish. Rather than check to see how bad her allergy was, the chef argued that there should not have been an issue, since the kitchen uses on a little butter in the rice. They then acknowledged that this was an error, and assuming got my wife ill.
To make up for her suffering, they offered us a free brunch for 2 at the Chart House (this, while she is still sick).
If you have any food-related allergies, do not go there! Their relaxed attitude (and lack of remorse) caused her to become very ill.
Thanks but No Thanks!! – This location is dynamite and provides a breath taking view of NYC, this is something all can agree upon. I made reservations for 2 @ 6:45 on a beautiful fall Saturday evening. Upon arrival, my girl and I waited in a line for 20 minutes just to speak with the maiterdee. Confident the "Reserve" in Reservations meant a set table, a bottle of wine, and some decent food was only a few minutes away I was blown away when I was handed a beeper and an hour plus waiting time. Thinking a few drinks at the bar could pass the time my girl and I tried to belly up only to be told we were not allowed in as the maximum capacity had filled the room. Not surprisingly we left the establishment shortly thereafter. Not one apology was offered at any time. In my eyes, character counts and the Chart House showed its true colors when my girl and I tried to follow up on our reservations. While the views are spectacular the people skills are horrendous. I'm a seller of the Chart House.
Great View – I'm happy that at least one person writing a review agrees with my assessment of the Chart House. The food was not good. The service was even worse. The waitress seemed much more interested in servicing a new table of rowdy guys than in taking care of tables she was already dealing with. We got the wrong wine and couldn't get her attention for the second bottle. Couldn't get more water and waited at least 20 minutes for our check. The seared asian scallops tasted as if they had a bottle of soy sauce poured on them (of course making them Asian). This was my second bad experience there with food and service. However, the view is spectacular. If nothing else go for drinks...and a spectacular view.
Beautiful View – We usually go to the Chart House to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. I must say the view of NYC is so beautiful! Our last time there a few weeks ago was early at 5pm and it was very crowded and noisy. If you don't mind all that noise then go to the Chart House. The food is very good too but for the most part, it's just regular food, nothing special. For myself and family we would only go here to celebrate an occassion, I do prefer smaller, quiter restaurants.
A Perfect 10!! – The view is breathtaking & the service is top notch... the ambiance is wonderfull. The staff offers impeccable service. I had Lobster Bisque it has 2 oz. of Maine Lobster in it. My boyfriend had the New England Chowder it was good but I think the award should go to the Lobster Bisque. I had Filet Mignon with garlic mash. It was divine melts in your mouth. My boyfriend had Prime Rib it was good .We didn't want a bottle of bubbly on a weekday so we each got little bottles of Korbett it was just enough. We had Lava Cake... we ordered when our food came it takes at least a 1/2 to make it. It's cuz it's so good you need to taste it!!!
All in all we're already coming up with excuses to go ahead really soon in the next few wks!!!!
Wow – Just went here for my girlfriends 23rd bday. If you've ever been along the river in Weehawken you have an idea of the top of view the chart house has to offer. Add to that great service and great food at a reasonable price and you have yourself the beginning of a great evening. The lava cake dessert was incredible and I recommend it.
Skiline – Food was good and the view of the new york city skiline was terrific even on a foggy rainy day like that of when I went. I would highly recommand requesting a table by the window. Although they do the typical what kind of water would you like questions the service was good and overall very relaxing to place to eat.
