Food- Amazing. I had salmon. The chef was sent to our table to talk over the GF menu with me. He was able to make the dish I wanted that was not on the GF menu and modify it to be GF. My husband had a perfect steak and mashed potatoes. He was thrilled. His dish was GF as well. Creme brûlée for dessert. Divine. Service- Sub par. We had a reservation and were seated 15min after our reserved time. Our table was awkward. By husband felt like he was sitting in a walkway while my chair back touched the chair behind me. It took forever to be greeted. No water on the table. Finally placed our drink order. 10 min later drinks arrive and so the evening went. The kitchen was slow, the server was slow. Other servers near us seemed very good so there's a chance you could get a good one. Ambiance-View was beautiful though the restaurant needs an update. Definitely not a swanky atmosphere. Would I return? No. Service stunk.

Four stars for having a gluten-free menu and not getting me sick (they would have made me sick once if I had not ben vigilant), but only two or three stars for the quality of the food. This is a chain restaurant and quality of ingredients reflects that. The prices are VERY high for food not nearly as good as what I prepare at home every night: $20 bucks for a mediocre salad bar, $30 for fish.

The first time I ate here they brought my green beans with a soy sauce-based glaze and I had to send my plate back. I spent a lot of time that day watching while everyone else ate bread and then their entrees while I waited for something I could eat.

They only charged about $7 for my 7-year-old daughter to eat from the salad bar. That or potatoes were her only options (she doesn't like meat). Definitely no GF pasta, pizza or bread here. Croutons and pasta are reasonably well segregated from GF foods in the salad bar. The salad bar had both raw and canned veggies and fruit, beans, cheeses, spring mix, romaine, spinach, hard-boiled egg, sardines, caviar, pasta salad, etc., etc. None of it was particularly flavorful or fresh-not that it was rancid, but this was basically low-grade grocery store quality. Clearly nothing very local, and probably not organic, either. The menu doesn't change seasonally (e.g. artichokes and asparagus), which means food is being shipped here from all over the world.

The Chart House is popular with out of town family for its beautiful nautical architecture, decor, and oceanside location with a view across the bay.

The ono (from Hawaii) was fresh and tasty, but local seafood options are limited or nonexistent. They are clueless with regard to the sustainability of the seafood offered on their menu. I recommend you bring your smartphone app for the Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch Program and ask your server where the fish is from so you can look it up yourself.

Due to my gluten intolerance, I was very happy that they have a gluten-free menu. A good variety of choices. I had the Grilled Salmon with garlic mashed potato, with grilled aspargus and tomato. Very delicious. They do offer 2 desserts one being creme brulee. But I was to full I had Hummus trio (traditional,Roasted red Pepper,edamame)served with plantaine chips for Appetizer. Over all very pleased, friendly staff, and the manager also came over to my table to talk to me and made sure my food was cooked a gluten-free meal. I would Definitely return.

Waiter brought the manager over and she offered to adjust any item I was interested in. She also assured me the kitchen would prepare everything separately. Gluten free menu included many options - not just "don't order with bin or croutons".

Small allergen menu. Most fish and steak can be prepared gf. I had salmon with no reaction. Very friendly staff and gorgeous view. Romantic for a special meal.

Don’t currently have a GF menu (they did in the past) but all of the steaks and fish are GF. Got the filet with garlic mash and mushrooms and it was fantastic

There is not a GF menu but the host said they could make just about anything GF or adjust the dish for me. Sure enough the waiter said the same. I was able to have one of the appetizers, the lobster, shrimp, avocado stack. And then I had a spinach salad with bacon, eggs & such & added grilled shrimp. The waiter did say I could have the steaks, fish & also mashed potatoes if I’d wanted to go that route. I felt confident in what I was served & did not have an reaction. I also had the moscato sangria which was very good.

We are a gluten free, soy free and corn free food family. We really enjoyed our early dinner at the Chart House in November 2020. Our experience was superb - our server was absolutely fabulous. The food was divine! And our seating view of the water was unmatched. The Chart House took care of our dietary needs exemplarily. We had a great experience at the Chart House and will be returning as often as possible.

I went here for happy hour and was going to stay for dinner. Once we were sat the waiter was not helpful. I asked what options they had that were gluten free. He said “tell me what sounds good and I’ll see what we can do”. This is a nice restaurant I expected more from them or maybe a manager to walk over and talk to our table. I called the host and they were unsure if they had any GF options. For the price they need to do better.
