I have frequented Chakra for quite a few years now and am always pleased how incredibly consistent it performs. Warm, personable and attentive service with high quality food & drinks at a very reasonable price-point. As a 5th generation restaurateur, I know this is no small feat, but Chakra is backed by a solid management couple, that gets everything right.... More

Its a restaurant that has a unique décor. Crowded even on a "slow" night. Waiter wanted us to order within 5 minutes of sitting down. I'm on a date not a 30 minute lunch. Food was very good but definitely need your wallet full to cover the tab no booze and ran me over $150 without tip. 2 appetizers, 2... More

The interior is very calming; gauze curtains separate the booths giving privacy without one feeling closed in. The service was excellent: attentive but not obtrusive. The hangar steak entre was an excellent choice as was the lamb with merguez sausage. A bit pricey, but definitely would go there again.

Excellent Caesar salad and wonderful assortment of fresh different breads. Soft butter. This is important as many restaurants have lousy bread or even charge for it.Goffle chicken was maybe the best I have ever eaten! Juicy French airline cut with a fabulous sauce of peas , corn, and some thing pickled that gave it great zing. Ricotta zeppoles are not... More

Our experience was great at Chakra. We used a Groupon and it was well worth it.The sea bass entree was delicious. The sushi appetizer of spicy tuna was large and one of the best sushi rolls we have ever had. The chocolate bread pudding was divine. A wonderful meal with a definite return visit in order.

Visited 09/15/2016 As you can see we've been here several times and I do have to say the food has always been very very good. I'll explain the 'only 4 stars' in a minute. We started off with Grilled Portuguese Octopus... served with white bean puree and arugula pesto. Wow! I would have sworn the octopus was marinated, but I... More

We had a booth along side the walls, which had couch type seating with the sheer drapery makes it very private.The room was very romantic and place lots of candles The theme is great, the designs suit it so well. However, they need to give the couch seat cover a new one, which were full of cracks and very uncomfortable... More

I have been to Chakra before. Has a great bar, and a great wine selection. They do not do lunch anymore. Had a pretty good deal with Groupon so we went last week for dinner. The menu is very interesting and there is something to eat for everyone. The only negative was our waiter. He was very off and absent... More

I attended a dinner for about 50 people here recently and the food and service were great. They have tons of parking, and were able to handle a large group, yet provide everything you would expect for a table of two. I'll be back.
