We were very excited to find this Landry Select restaurant then found you need to have reservations for preferred seating (5-7 p.m.). Preferred seating can be booked up to 14 days in advance. Otherwise, we could not get seated until 8 p.m. Sorry to say I did not see that in any of the reviews and we were unable to... More

We've dined at many Chart House restaurants in several locales - always a great venue in terms of the seaside views and the dining room; but have usually dealt with average to poor service and food. For the price - these should be much better!

I debated writing this review about the Chart House in Longboat Key, Florida for several weeks before posting it. Before I get into the details I want to advise that I run a large restaurant and catering facility in NYC and have been in the hospitality industry all of my life. With that said, I have a strong background in... More

While the view from the Chart House is absolutely amazing, it becomes quite apparent that's what you're paying for. Unfortunately when my husband and I visited for lunch (with a reservation), we were ignored for a good 5 minutes before anyone noticed we were there. We then found that there were only a few outside tables that were shaded and... More

Normally one of our favorite restaurants, The Chart House Sarasota was a bit underwhelming. It had a dated interior with very high prices. The cuisine was more about presentation then taste. With so many great choices in the area I would probably pass on this meal.

What can I say, when you have an allergy to certain foods, one begins to hate going out to eat! Well at this place, you feel completely reassured your allergy will be personally taken care of by the Manager on duty! After speaking to the him, I couldn't feel better eating at a restaurant. With specific information on what I... More

The drinks here are amazing but their food is only okay. There was nothing wrong with it, it just doesn't compare to some of the other options in the area

We had stopped by earlier in our stay on Longboat Key for their happy hour. The bartender (Danny) was very imformative and had great suggestions so we decided to make a dinner reservation for our last evening in Longboat Key. Our reservation was for 8pm and was told due to a large group earlier they could not seat us and... More

Five of us celebrated the birthday of one of our party. The evening started off splendidly with personalized menu's with the celebrants name atop the menu and the citing of the occasion. The service bordered on impeccable, and the food was incredibly tasty with perfect preparation. Our group recommends: whole fish (yellow-ail snapper) Wok-fried; kimchi calamari w/coconut & ginger rice;... More
