Delicious, gluten 'sensitive' menu, very fancy, great front house service, and great views. However, dessert ordered from gluten free menu (creme brulee sampler) came with biscotti in one of the dishes, which draw concerns about how gluten free the rest of the menu actually is...

Chart House has a gluten free menu. Food was very good, I had the Captain’s cut prime rib. Servers were very aware of gluten free items. It was a little awkward when the waitress counted our money (cash) at our table when picking it up. Otherwise a nice place.

Great food! I hadn't been to a Chart House since going to the one in Virginia over 20 years ago so my father and I decided to check this one out during his recent visit. It was just as I remembered with the huge salad bar complete with caviar, also enjoyed the baja salmon (topped with warm corn salsa and shrimp) with mashed potatoes (some of the best I've ever had) and asparagus on the side. They had a couple of gluten-free dessert items on the menu (raspberry sorbet and crème brulee) but I went for the chocolate mousse at the salad bar instead. Food was excellent! Only thing they need to do is offer gluten-free bread so hopefully they'll do that in the future.

Our waitress took my Celiac very serious. Said she informed the chef's and management that I am Celiac. Great GF menu. I had the Mahi mahi. It was so delicious.

Separate GF menu with lots of choices. It’s rare that with GF and DF allergies that they had appetizers, side dishes, main course and desserts that I could have! It’s on the pricy side but well worth it. I had shrimp crab mango avocado stack appetizer with lobster tail main course with steamed veggies and grilled asparagus also with a black cherry Arnold Palmer. Everything was very good and our server deardra was knowledgeable about food allergies and very accommodating to my questions. And it’s really just a very cool building right on the water. We sat on the second floor and watched the boats in the harbor.

I’ve been here a few times, some servers are more knowledgeable than others when it comes down to cross-contamination of things(such as the plantain chips). If you are CELIAC, the plantain chips are NOT SAFE they share a fryer. They do have a Gluten Sensitive menu which is nice but nothing on their happy hour menu is GF which is a bummer. I had the Crab mango avocado stack and just ate it with a fork, no chips or plantains, very tasty! When it comes to the dinner menu there’s more options but I suggest still asking questions of your server or manager

Separate gluten free menu & good choices

I had the prime rib and mashed potato. The potato was excellent and the prime rib was okay. Some of it was a little tough. The meal started with rolls which were not gluten free and there was no gluten free alternative. The restaurant did have what looked like delicious desserts but the gluten free option was sorbet. I was pleased that my meal was safe for me but I wish they put some more thought into their offerings for those that HAVE TO eat gluten free.

Very pleasant dining experience! We ate lunch here and had a great time. Our server Michael took great precautions to make sure that our multiple allergies were taken into account before our order was placed. A manager stopped by our table to verify the order as well. Small GF menu but the food was good. I give 4 stars because I would have liked to perhaps see a few more GF selections on the menu. We all had the grilled chicken and asparagus.

Even after informing the server about my CD, my salad came with croutons and the hummus trio came with plantain chips which are fried in the communal fryer. I'm going on day 8 of being sick. This place should not even offer a gluten free menu.

They have a great gluten free menu. Their salad bar is great too. All the salad dressings are gluten free except the Caesar. I have them top a filet mignon with lump crab meat & it’s phenomenal.

NO confidence in GF menu. Server seemed unsure what I was asking. No gluten free fries or bread (for my GF 8 yrold). Asked for steak that was ordered medium but arrived rare (bloody) to be cooked - no confidence it was cooked in GF area - definitely not the 2nd time. Literally fed the steal to the fish in the harbor. Picked the restaurant as one that advertises gluten sensitive menu. very disappointed.

Fantastic meal. Both Nana and her granddaughter are GF. They were very accommodating and switched out sides to meet their needs. Prime rib for grandchild and grilled chicken for Nana. Mash potatoes were also superb. Very GF friendly with menu.

I was never given the opportunity to see if this establishment was GF /friendly because they refused to seat a party of one. They recommended I try the bar which was full. I left without eating there and passed many empty tables on my way out.

They have a gluten sensitive menu and staff are very knowledgeable. We had a hummus sampling appetizer with plantain chips which was very good! Plantain chips were a great substitute. I had the filet and Yukon mashed potatoes as well as a mango and a pomegranate mojito. Nothing made me sick and the service was excellent. Great view if you go before it gets dark!

We ate lunch there. There wasn't a lot of options. I had a chicken dish and the chicken had very little flavor. They weren't real busy and it seemed it took a long time to get our food.

Gluten free menu with delicious appetizers, entrees and dessert. Our waiter informed the chef of my Celiac disease and I did not get sick. View is beautiful.

Service is hardly sub-par. Took forever to be seated even though the place was mostly empty. They got our salad order wrong TWICE. They then proceeded to bring me a completely rare steak when I ordered it medium well. Once they brought us the right food it all tasted alright, but nothing special. At least I didn't get sick!

Felt very safe here Policy that manager comes out to take your order when they are notified of an allergy. They take it serious. The chef delivered my plate verifying all of my allergies were accounted for. However...just to note $15-$50 a plate.

Server was very attentive to my questions and issues. I ordered grilled chicken, and when it came before I could ask about the sauce that was on it she assured me that it WAS GF. Food was wonderful!

I went here with my partner who is both gluten, and lactose, intolerant for a bite to eat over the 4th of July Weekend. I informed the server and the hostess that of the dietary restrictions and they were very accommodating. My partner had the grilled chicken, asparagus, and mashed potatoes. The mashed potatoes were a treat, because my partner usually cannot have them at restaurants since most places include cream and butter. However, this restaurant, if told in advance, will make any meals with allergies in a separate area and did so wonderfully. The food was phenomenal, the service was a bit slow (but it was a busy holiday weekend in a major city), and the drinks were really good as well. I enjoyed in immensely, as did my partner, and I look forward to coming back here.

They have a dedicated gluten-free menu, but it's all really expensive. I also got the chopped salad, but they put croutons in it.

I requested A gluten-free menu when I made my reservation. It was already waiting on my table for me when I was seated. My server was extremely attentive to my gluten sensitivity and made sure that it was noted on my order even though everything I ordered was off of the gluten-free menu. In addition, I was celebrating my birthday, and a crème brûlée was brought to my table so that I could celebrate.

The only thing worse than having no idea about gluten is sending a kitchen manager out who is suppose to be an expert and gives false info. All they know is items with flour have gluten, they couldn't tell me about their bacon or any of they seasonings they used. They also told me that items I knew were not gf were safe. If you eat here, do not trust the kitchen staff. While they claim to understand Celiac's needs they have no idea. Additionally I am allergic to sulfates which I was not shy about, they gave me a flour less fudge cake LOADED with rum which hospitalized me with one bite. I paid $40 for my meal and $250 for the ER visit.

Waiter has zero knowledge of gf. Brought out my NY strip with a side of asparagus which had bread crumbs SPRINKLED on top even though the server was informed of my allergy. They didn't give me a new dish even though there was definite contamination- they just scooped the potatoes and steak off onto another plate with the new plain inedible asparagus. They did comp me a free creme brûlée for the trouble but I don't think I'd recommend coming here unless in a pinch

Me and My family is being going to the Chart House for so many celebrations for the past 10years .... But this past year we try for so many times and get more disappointed every visit:(. Took my family from France over the summer there and the view that they offer me is that half of my party of 12 have to face the wall ... That was so embarrassing..... Mother's Day lunch? From bad to worst .... I feel like they being putting us on the worst sitting with no City view... Our last try was today for brunch to celebrate the kids 26 and 24 birthday .... They do not take reservations for brunch. We got there by 11:30am , all the tables are empty and the hosts told us if we want to have a table sitting we have to wait until 1:45pm ... To be nice we decide to eat at the bar ... Another mistake service was horrible , my daughter didn't eat anything and we left there deciding it was are last visit ... Just can't stand that place anymore.... Every is so rude and disrespectful

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.

I ordered from their gluten free menu and had the shrimp cocktail for an appetizer, steak with mashed potatoes and steamed mixed veggies for my entree and creme brûlée for dessert. All was delicious. Granted, pretty much everything I ordered was naturally gluten free, but I had no issues.

I have eaten here a few times and always get special treatment here since I have to eat gluten free and have other food allergies on top of it (bone fish being one of them, ironically). They do have a decent but small gluten free menu with a great chef salad (I suggest adding some grilled shrimp to it- yum!). And the best part is it appears to me that some of the items on the GF menu are actually lunch items, so they cost less at dinner, ha ha!

The atmosphere and food was amazing. However the waiter was not knowledgable in the meaning of GF DF, he brought out Pita triangles in the Plantain Chip basket. We also ordered a salad that did not come out. However, we shared the Hummus trio, the Oysters and the Bronzed Tilapia and it was both GF and DF. Absolutely Delicious!!!

Our server was well versed in gluten allergies and could help me choose exactly what I wanted off the gluten free menu. I ordered a lovely fish dish with a lemon sauce and mashed potatoes. I also ordered a creme brûlée for dessert. My husband ordered something not on the GF menu (he's not celiac) but they adapted his dish by switching sauces so we could share our food.

The food was excellent, with a good variety of fresh foods, meats and fish. But I was more impressed with the staff. I felt very safe there and all my questions were answered immediately, with knowledge and experience. It was pricey but would do again.

Staff was friendly. Menu had enough options. Steak was past the carmelized stage and was just burnt on the outside. Not worth the price.

They have a separate gf menu. I ordered the brozed mahi mahi dish and it tasted so good I was worried about getting sick. Thankfully I didn't and had one of the best meals during my trip here.

Because of the atmosphere and price, I expect more from this kind if establishment. It is not bad, just does not live up to expectations.

Extensive gluten free menu. Although it is a seafood restaurant, they also had chicken and beef for those who do not like seafood. I had the Mahi Mahi and it was excellent!
