Update: Went for the advertised special “Crab Cake Day Special.” At in the Bar area for Happy Hour and Bar Bites. Best Crab cake in a while – loaded with crab meat & a dollop of crab meat on top – and we shared a Carpacio. Drinks were good and outstanding service from “Robert.” The Mr. mentioned that is my Birthday tomorrow and Robert got us a “FREE” dessert. It was awesome! Thinking we might want to give The Chart House another try. Yes, it was crowded, “snow bird season” but we still found a table.
Went with friends on New Year’s Eve for dinner – Not sure what to say. Been here a couple of times for NYE and this time it was ok – just nothing special. The view can be nice if you are facing the water but for those facing the wall—oh well. Decided on the Salad Bar which was ok but used to have, In my opinion, better options than this time. Salad Bar w/entree $9.00 Entrees were Short Ribs which were fork tender with Cabernet demi-glaceere with mashed potatoes and 2 asparagus spears $27.50.
My drink was disappointing. Specifically asked for no extra sugar and that did not happen which spoiled the drink for me. Yes, I could have complained but was just too tired to do so, considering this is supposed to be a top notch restaurant. Too many “not as good as used to be” to make me rethink about going back. So final comments are: over-priced, and not as good as it used to be. Next New Years Eve going someplace else.
