Wonderful meal and atmosphere. We were seated quickly for our reservation and the waiter was very attentive to our needs. The chocolate lava cake was one of the best desserts we have ever had

The worst possible service. McDonalds has better service than this place. Would never recommend this to anyone. Waiter was rude. Food was not cooked. Manager has no clue on customer service. If there are zero stars. This place gets it.

Our waiter was so inattentive. Our meals didn't come out at the same time. And we sat there so long waiting for appetizers, etc., that we didn't feel like ordering dessert, even though we were celebrating our son's birthday, because we had already sat there for two hours.

We were on a girls trip in LA and our final night in the city we wanted to have dinner near the water, I got on my Open Table App and found The Chart House. We were seated at a table overlooking the Marina. Our Server was very attentive and our entrees were good. I would have given it 5 stars except that one of my girlfriends had to send her steak back twice because it was not cooked properly.

Very pedestrian food. Service was at best "OK". Location is OK. Sat outside next to the boat harbour. Not really very scenic.

I think the service for that level
Of restaurant was subpar. We asked for a type of wine and she had no idea. We asked for Chicken on our salad she forgot. The Main courses didn’t come with veggies. It felt like a cafeteria more than fine dining and the meal Was overpriced for what you got

Service was great, (as always) but unfortunately the fish was over cooked. Was hosting a client and therefore did not ant make trouble and send it back. Perhaps I should have. Maybe next time

Out table was perfect and you never feel crowded here. It was Tuesday night prime rib night and it was a terrific value. Excellent service, surprisingly good wine selection and pretty place.
My family loves coming here. We can actually have a conversation and not be rushed.

First time back at a Chart House after many years dining at their competition. Glad I made this choice and will now return more often. Our server, Capri, was friendly and efficient. The meals were served as requested with a true medium rare prepared steak. The wine was decanted and poured properly. The reservation was honored in a timely fashion. All in all the restaurants changes were definitely noticed and appreciated.

The waiter was totally unprofessional. He also had food on his mouth hanging out. I guess he just ate before coming out to serve us. The food somehow no longer tastes the same as we had before. The temperature in the restaurant was freezing. Only one good thing was the view. The drinks were probably 5% of alcohol. In all, we don’t think we’ll come back there anymore.

This is from an Open Table VIP. Very disappointing! We were at LAX for a conference and thought Marina Del Rey would be a great spot. It was but... NOT at Chart House. It is old and dog-eared. Appetizers all came out cold- calamari and charred octopus was also tough. Entrees were not well plated and not well prepared for price. Worse of all awful service- dirty plates left in front of us for 15 minutes- no server in sight- when I politely said we’d like to have plates removed and we’d been sitting quite awhile- service got nasty and never recovered his attitude. We had 3 diners, appetizers, entrees and 2 bottles of wine- so we’re spending and anticipating a good experience. I rarely write such a horrid review. Many other great choices in area. Avoid this restaurant.

Very poor service, slow and inefficient. It took too long to sit us at a table, seeing that the restaurant was empty. The food took too long to be served. One of us ordered a chicken plate which was impossible to eat. It was chewy and seemed to have been improperly thawed before cooking. We were not charged for it, but because it had taken too long we did not order anything instead.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience as we celebrated our anniversary. The service was amazing as we were visited often and given plenty of time to enjoy the evening. The food was amazing from the shared calamari to the chopped salads to the scallops and shrimp entree. We would definitely come back.

Very Disappointed. Hadn't been to Charthouse for over ten years and won't be going back. It looks and feels dated. Both the decor and the food. I used to love their Salad Bar. It was the best in the business. Now it's nothing to write home about. Soggy lettuce. A limited mix of veggies. Not kept clean and sparkling. Way downhill.
The prime rib was full of fat and had to send it back. But the second piece had almost as much fat on it as the first one. The Mahi Mahi was ok, nothing special.
Service was fine, but food and atmosphere just wasn't worth the price!

there was a screaming baby at the next table and we asked to have our table changed and we complained about the screaming; the child's father accused us of calling the baby a name; and instead of offering us a drink or apology the manager asked us to leave and allowed the baby's father to come to our table and berate us. I called Landry's the owner of Chart House and they said they would get back to us they never did. A couple sitting next to us was at Valet when I came out and said the manager was a disgrace; the child's mother came outside with the baby and the lady at the next table said loudly that people shouldn't bring baby's if they cant behave and the mother yelled at the lady f--- you.

Food was excellent. Service was good, not great, but good. There were not that many people there, but the server, who was very nice, disappeared for long periods of time. The decor of the restaurant is a little dated. Location is fantastic.
