We tried The Chart House for the first time last weekend, and were very impressed with the entire dining experience. From the brushed chrome stair railing, blue-carpeted staircase, and the large glass-enclosed candles burning outside the front door entrance; all the details made for a warm seaside entrance to this restaurant. Upon entering I was greeted by name by the manager and hostess (since I had made a reservation online at ""OpenTable"") They sat us immediately at our table which included a formal dinner setting with candle, and a large window gazing out onto the evening ocean. Music playing softly overhead, lent a nice sophisticated touch as well.\r
Our waitress named Juile, was very prompt, helpful, and well-versed with all the menu items and specials of the day. We took her lead on trying the crab-stuffed mushroom caps, and they were really delicious. Also on our varied venture thru the menu, we ordered Oysters Rockefeller, Lobster Bisque, stuffed flounder, mahi mahi, shrimp fresca, prime rib (children's menu cut, for my daughter), and topped it off with a lobster tail added on the side. It was a huge seafood variety which the four of us healthily devoured without too much effort, save for the chocolate molten lava dessert.\r
All-in-all, we found the restaurant, food, and most importantly the service, to be very charming, professional, serene, and worthy of our making many return visits as soon as we can make it back there.\r
Wonderful evening, thanks to everyone at The Chart House, especially Julie.
Pros: Wonderful, subdued, tranquil atmosphere, excellent food, wonderful view, great martinis
Cons: Expensive - but I knew that before going.
