    It's tucked away on the Riverfront but the view, food and service make this our favorite 'special occasion' restaurant. The casual dining at the bar is also a fun alternative. And, it's a place that knows how to make a classic gin martini, not with vodka, or olive juice but gin and vermouth. Sunday nights are a surprisingly good time to enjoy the ambiance without a crowd and a great way to end the weekend.

    We have been to the Chart House many times, but last Saturday's was a cut above in both food and service. The view is always great, but our food was really excellent and the service went beyond good. Our waitress actually retrieved our valet ticket from the coat room and had our car waiting for us so we didn't risk being late for the theatre. We all agreed it was a great experience.

    We brought friends from out of town here for a special treat. A wide variety of dishes, especially seafood. Everything we had was excellent. Service was efficient, courteous without intruding into our conversation or dining experience. Floor to ceiling windows give almost every table a good view of the river. All in all, a perfect evening.

    I came here with my boyfriend for a special occasion. We loved the food and wine. We ordered Calamari and Friends for an appetizer--delicious. And we chose the Parmesan-crusted snapper and bleu cheese filet for our entrees. We enjoyed our table for two which offered a stunning view of the river and Cincinnati...even at night. Waiter was fine, not spectacular, but fine. The onsite manager was wonderful--very attentive with a clear understanding of how to deliver remarkable customer service. I highly recommend!

    Dined on the deck overlooking the Ohio River and Cincinnati as the day faded into night. Spectacular views. Great food! I had Prime rib, ask for it as rare as possible and it was the best I have had. My wife had Salmon which was "lacquered" with a delicate orange sauce that enhanced without trying to be the star. Friends had teriyaki beef and mahi-mahi, again delightful choices. Service was attentive without being intrusive, the time sped by as we enjoyed the food and the views and the company. This was our second visit. We will be returning.

    This time around our dining experience was above our expectations with our food being prepared to our desired level and our service way beyond our expectations. Noah was exceptional at every turn and was a true gentleman. We would recommend him to anyone who desires to be treated like royalty. The last 3 times we came to this restaurant we had mediocre food or they ran out of the simplest of items, like shrimp cocktail. This experience was much better. We will return and we will request Noah!

    Almost perfect. i have two (2) suggestions for improvements: adoption of which would make for perfection. 1) entree portion could be a little larger 2) I could not park in the restaurant lot as valet parking was required. I don't like others driving my car. Even though handicapped spots were available- i had to park across the street.

    The chart house location is its best feature. the views of the Ohio River and Cincinnatti are great, not so much for the food. My meal wasnr bad, it was just ok, nothing special. The wine list was very overpriced for the finer selections such as Cakebread Cellars. Service was slow, considering the place was 20% occupied, we had slow service, waited for drink orders etc. I would not return, better places in Covington to visit

    It stared with a great app then the soup also very good, but after that it took 1hour and 15 mins to get out main meal. Our waitress was wonderful she kept up on us to make sure we were okay, and she was kept bugging the kitchen to were our food was ( we us happen to be seated right across from the chefs), finally she ask the manager to step in, he talked with us and talked to the chefs, still no food. When our dinner did come my salmon's edges were so hard I could only eat the middle of the fish. Once again our waitress and manager did their best to help and they were very nice and showed us they were working on the problem, I just wished the food was as good.

    We dined at the restaurant to celebrate our anniversary, and it did not disappoint. The food and service were both outstanding. Maria, our server, made the experience even more wonderful with her knowledge of the food. My husband and I both had seafood ( scallops and cod). The scallops were beautifully prepared. The savory flavor remained in your mouth. Delightful! My husband cleaned his plate, so I guess that was a testimony. We ended with the signature Mud Pie. This is a beautiful restaurant that should be at the top of your dining list when you want a romantic evening, or just a great meal.

    The atmosphere is always pleasant, You sit on the KY side of the Ohio River...looking across to Mt. Adams, so the view is pretty much always good. We've tried much of the menu and it is all good. The appetizer portions are generous and the key lime pie is some of the best I've tasted. romantic setting. I've witnessed two proposals over the years.

  • Good choice for Anniversary dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/1/2014
    My wife and I chose this restaurant to celebrate are 33rd Anniversary. It was a very good choice. There is not a seat in the place where the view of the river and city cannot be seen. The food was very good. We both had fish. I had Snapper and she had Salmon, by far the largest fish I have ever been served in any restaurant. The portions are large and as I found out the salad alone almost filled me up. For an appetizer we had the Bruschetta and it was a disappointment. It was mushrooms in a sauce that tasted like canned sauce over burnt Italian bread. I think they should send someone over to Primavista to find out how to make good Bruschetta. Over all the food was very good and the Server was excellent, took a bit long to be served.

    From Dayton and was looking for a different experience for some seafood. Found the Chart House at Newport and decided to drive down for a birthday dinner. Easy to find and good food. A tad pricey but the food was good and view was stellar on the river. Our server was great and showed us excellent attention even while taking care of a larger party next to us.

    If you like delicious seafood, beautiful ambiance, and gorgeous views the Chart House in Newport, KY across the Ohio river from Cincinnati, Ohio will suit you to a T. The evening entree's run from about $25.00 to the low $40.00's so you will not be taking your kids normally for dinner but it makes a great place for a special occasion such as my birthday present from my wife (we both love the Chart House in Annapolis and since Cincinnati was closer to our Cleveland home we choose that). I had the Salmon Rockefeller which was cooked to perfection along with the spinach, bacon, and crab that covered it. Delicious! The crab bisque soup was thick and flavorful with plenty of lump crab in it. The Shrimp Beignets were he best part of dinner.

    My wife and I both had 8 oz filets for dinner, and although not cooked exactly the way we would have liked, they were still very good. The calimari and bread was delicious, as was the mashed potatoes that came with the steaks. A top end restaurant that has somewhat reasonable prices compared to some other steak houses. I would certainly go back, but I don't think it was the best steak or restaurant I've been to.

    My first visit to Chart House was an exceptional event. I chose it for my 21st anniversary dinner, and I was pleased more than expected. It was excellent! My husband and I enjoyed a gorgeous scenic-view table of the river and downtown Cincinnati at sunset while we dined on the most delicious seafood (my compliments to the chef!). From appetizer to dessert (best mud pie ever), we were extremely pleased. Our waitress, Kristin, was so wonderfully pleasant, professional, and attentive; we will be asking for her at future dining events, as she is top-notch. The atmosphere was inviting, the temperature was just right, and even while dining amongst others, we felt somewhat secluded. This place is perfect all around.

    My husband and I are members of the Landry club & came to the Chart House to celebrate our anniversary. My husband ordered the prime rib and I ordered the salmon. His steak was overcooked and extremely fatty. I know that prime rib is a fatty cut, but he has had better steaks at Outback Steakhouse. My salmon was tasty, until I found a long black hair in it halfway through the meal and lost my appetite. The waiter was very attentive, but couldn't make up for the entrees. We'll stick with the other Landry restaurants next time.
