We had dinner reservation and arrived on time. Upon arrival we were informed that our table should be ready shortly as existing guests had asked for the check. Despite this information, we waited 50 minutes to be seated without an apology or any concession. I...understand staff can’t control precisely how long people occupy their table but there was no effort to ‘make it right”. I had made the reservation over a month ago and was entertaining my aging parents. As a guest of this restaurant over 3 decades, I was very disappointed in this experience. The food was good and the wait staff was excellent, however the hostess team was snarky and clearly irritated by us asking about the status of our table. 50 minutes to wait for your table when you have a reservation is unacceptable. They said the would talk to the manager (we heard nothing from him/her), and I suspect they did nothing.More

Large group for a late lunch indoors. Ambiance is terrific with views of the harbor. Perhaps because we were past prime lunch time, our service could not have been better. The waiter gave us a full background on the building, made no mistakes in the...orders and everyone’s meal came at the same time. Wonderful lobster bisque, fish tacos, lobster rolls and salads. We finished with fruit cobblers and Boston cream pie. Would return .More

Four of us had dinner at the Chart House. It is in a converted warehouse and filled with charm and unique esoterica. The wait staff was helpful with decision making re food selections. We recommend this restaurant for a number of reasons.

Charter House was an absolute treat, oysters to die for, steak and seafood excellent. The Chocolate Bourbon is a must, best I've ever had.

The food was good but the rats were OVERWHELMING! We ate outside with another couple and every other minute a rat ran thru the tables. I hate them and screamed every time I saw one so my stomach was in knots. The manager claimed that...there were traps. The two men in our group searched hi and low and couldn't find them. The manager asked if we wanted to eat inside. The entire evening the door to the restaurant was open so the rats could walk right in. I would never eat there again!More

We had dinner here one night while on vacation, and were very happy with everything. The service was very friendly and prompt (though they were very busy), and the setting is very relaxed and upscale without being pretentious. We ordered the Artichoke & Spinach Dip,...Australian Lobster Tail, 7 oz Filet Mignon, and Miso Maple Glazed Salmon. Two people in our family have shellfish allergies, and there were several options for them to choose from (plus, the server was able to confirm that their choices were safe to order). We ordered the Lava Cake to share for dessert (tip: order this well ahead of time, as it takes 30 min to prepare). The food was all excellent, and we'd definitely return here in the future. Highly recommended!More

We had dinner here and it exceeded expectations. We just walked in and were lucky to get a spot at the bar area. Food was fan-tas-tic and ambiance and staff were really nice. Can only recommend this place!

Service was very slow, apps came before drinks, food was not up to Chart House standards and poorly presented. Better choices.

We had a reservation for a large party, that was seated almost 20 minutes after arriving after calling to make sure that the table would be ready because we had someone with us with a disability, Hostess was also rude about it. Service was friendly...but it was backwards-meal came after drinks and food was terrible (except for the dessert). Had to fetch the manager because no one explained what was happening. Meal was nearly $1,000- honestly the BIGGEST waste pf money of the entire trip.More
