Chart House Restaurant - Cardiff
Our waiter was very helpful with selection that we very much enjoyed. ALL staff extended themselves.
Evening was excellent. Server forgot to bring our bread after offering it. Took quite a long time for non alcoholic drinks and our food. However view and our dinner party filled the gap and we had a great evening anyway. I would visit again and just be prepared for a long leisurely meal.
It was my birthday and I made that note on the reservation but there was NO acknowledgment of the occasion. I have been eating at Chart House restaurants for 30+ years. I guess I have outgrown this chain. Server was excellent. Location is terrific.
When we were there having lunch. All other tables had bread and we did not!
The windows were open and you could hear the surf while eating lobster salad. It doesn't get better than this!
Everything was great. Food was delicious! I had Thai Shrimp with sushi rice, coconut ginger sauce, was outstanding. Our group of 7 all enjoyed their food.
Andrew was our server and he was excellent.
And being so close to ocean completes the ambiance.
Went for birthday dinner. Got terrific table with ocean view. Gorgeous! Food was generally good. My husbands prime rib though was very disappointing..it was dry and not flavorful. The fish on the menu was good. Mud pie is a must
My buddy and his wife were in town to visit. We used to live in Cardiff. What better place to eat!
Great view and great food. Service is excellent also.Always enjoy this restaurant
Our dinner was amazing and our server Lindsay was superb.
This dinner was a special occasion as my cousin was in town. The restaurant and attention we were given was fine but unfortunately the food was not.
Our waitress said the kitchen was 'too busy' to saute my cousin's bean sprouts and my steak was very dry, not nearly the pink that our waitress said would be medium rare. Yes, we were disappointed in our food but time with my cousin was special.
Food was great. Pricy, but great. Service was slow and the requested window table did not happen.
Imagine a place you can go where life seems to feel like it begins here. Greece, Venice, Santorini are just a few places I have journeyed. They have there place on the go and see list, but this Chart House has a sunset that is never the same and an ocean that is teaming with life! If you make your reservations at tie right time of the year you can view the dolphins swim by while you dine. The Chart House has a warm and experienced staff of professionals that simply will not disappoint you. But they will inspire you to treat yourself to amazing cuisines and gorgeous presentations. I recommend this place to make a good impression on a first date or Anniversary it will never be forgotten. Big windows pointed toward the horizon take in all the views of our beautiful Pacific Ocean, and after a good meal why not take a stroll on the beach with that special someone for a moonlight kiss! Yes St. Petersburg and Sweden were nice places, but there is no place like home...The Chart House in Cardiff, come see and tast life again for yourself...
Great food, service and views!!
Friday 1 pm lunch was just right, good time and great food
We reserved a table for 10 to celebrate a 60th anniversary. Food was excellent and the service was great.
My dish looked beautiful, was delicious and our server was awesome!
Great meal! Halibut and salmon paired with a perfect Chardonnay. Cocktails were just ok. Spinach salad was outstanding but know better than to order a drink. We'll be back!
Chart House is always a great place to take friends and family from out of town, or to celebrate a special occasion. The service, food, drinks, desserts, and the view is always consistently amazing!!! I love that place and recommend it highly!!! The Happy Hour is fabulous, too!!! I’m getting hungry!!!
No surprises. Just a wonderful evening with my son and his fiance. David, our server, had an intuitive balance of attentiveness and leaving us alone to enjoy our evening. Food was delicious and perfectly prepared. Thank you!
Always a treat to come here - great view, service and food.
The setting is beautiful and when we mentioned we're Landry members, we got an exceptional table. We had a delicious Sunday brunch and the service was near perfect. We'll be back.
We arrived at 730 and ordered at 745. Our food arrived at the table after 9 pm with no apology. Service was horrible
There’s a reason I’ve been going to the chart house since a kid growing up in Cardiff. It never disappoints! The food is always great, the service is just as great and the view of the beach I grew up on= priceless.
Waiter and support staff were friendly. Salmon was cooked well and portions were good. Wife had scallops. Portion and side was less than expected. Overall, just kinda average for the price.
Amazing amazing! The coconut shrimp is the best I’ve ever had and the lava cake oh my I’ve been thinking of it ever since. Highly recommend
The view was wonderful, service great as we celebrated our anniversary. The portions were a little small and a bit pricey, but with that view of the ocean how can one complain?
This was our first time here.I'd proposed to my, now, fiance maybe an hour before our reservation and we were celebrating, but our server didn't try to make small talk or ask us about our evening or the occasion for our visit. My fiance also has food allergies, and he seemed annoyed by them. Her order said it included a particular side, and this side was not included in the final plate due to her allergy. No big deal, but it would have been nice if we'd been told it wouldn't be included and maybe offered a substitution. Location was beautiful.
Wife bday, perfect meal with spectacular views. Fine dining experience.
Server and food was fabulous!
Andrew our server was great.....food was excellent
Great food, reasonable prices, gorgeous views. We go there for special occasions, often.
Nicole our server was amazing . Our window side table provided a beautiful view of the ocean . My swordfish was prepared to perfection. Thank you for an epic experience for us locals and our guests from the Midwest.
It was delicious food and what a beautiful sunset!
Excellent food and beautiful views overlooking the ocean . Perfect lunch spot!
Great food, great view
Great food and service
We were in San Diego on business and pleasure. It was my wife’s Birthday and secured a reservation and asked to be seated water front on the notes on the
Open table reservation.
We arrived about 15 min early,the receptionist said to go to the bar and she would come and get us in a bit.
We had drinks and at about 25 min I went back to the front desk and she said it would be a little more time.
To fast forward at about 730 a full half hour after our reservation we both went back and was finally seated . She explained that there were no
Water front tables..So why did she not come earlier and offer another option? Probably not trained properly or did not care.
After being seated and greeted by a nice waiter we got beverages and ordered the meals.Our drinks and salads came in a timely manner.
Our main meals took approx a half hour to arrive after the salads we done...My vegetables were cold..Fish was good. , rice average at best.
But the entire evening was a total loss due to the receptionist not being organized and attentive to the availability of tables and the kitchen
Being was too slow with our order and not the right temperature. We almost left and were leaving cash for the drinks and salads. But after a half an hour the food arrived.
We have been at Chart House restaurants in other cities and never had this bad experience. My guess is a lack of training for the Chef and staff.
We will think twice about going to another Chart House. The only good was the nice waiter.
There are way too many other great waterfront restaurants in the San Diego area to support ..this restaurant is a definite NO !
We've been here a few times and had good experiences but tonight was a fail. Slow service, artichoke appetizers were under cooked. The manager argued with me about knowing how to eat an artichoke because they were tough. Main courses came up at different times and were not very flavorful. And the 30 min lava cake was.cold. Can't we us going back. Great place to sit in the bar if you catch good sunset but other than that try Pacific Coast Grill.
My reservation through Open Table was not honored and blamed on Open Table booking when no availablity. Sat at bar seating.
