Diner Reviews
  • "We had a great Easter Dinner. Service was great, food was excellent and we had a great view. Table by the window was so beautiful. "
    Dined on 4/20/2014
  • "In general we love the Chart House. This Saturday was not the same. The food and wine were excellent. The service - although cordial - not very attentive and slow. We had to ask for bread and then waited 25 minutes. We were chatty - at the table - so the waiter could take his time returning for our order . . .but he took a L O N G time! Even with lots of conversation - we were all looking for him. The room was crowded and noisy. Our table was in the middle of it all. Would have preferred either a booth or window. This was a "meet the in-laws" dinner and we really wanted it to be special. We chose the Chart House for their food, somewhat quiet dining, usually impeccable service and views. Last Saturday was a marginal experience."

  • "The stop and go of being seated was a bad start by the 3 hostesses who seemed to not know what they were doing. Our names on the menu for our anniversary were a nice touch. Running out of prawns for an appetizer was uncalled for, for a seafood restaurant on a Saturday night. The bar drinks were to perfection and moderately priced. The entrees were prepared pretty well and the portions were of decent size. The service was the highlight of the evening as Christen took care of us in remarkable fashion. The biggest disappointment came in the fact that the kitchen is an open kitchen and at least a half a dozen times they dropped arm full’s of pots and pans across the floor which resonated through the dining area. The manager just made excuses!"

  • "It was a last minute reservation, but we were given a nice table with a great view. When we arrived, the restaurant was pretty full, and our waitress said they were going to be very busy until about 8 (another 1/2 hour or so). We told her that we were in no hurry and not to worry. That may be why our service was a little slow in the beginning. A bit too much time before taking our drink and appetizer orders, then app arrived before drinks. Our waitress was apologetic, and it really wasn't a big deal. The kitchen may have been feeling the crush of the busy time, because our Shrimp Beignets seemed to be a little undercooked. Once things eased up, everything was much smoother, and we had a lovely evening. We will definitely be back."

  • "Great food, service, and ambience overlooking the Ohio River and with a view of the Cincinnati skyline."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "This is just simply a wonderful place to dine. The service is top knotch from start to finish. The scenary is one the best for a grand Cincinnati Skyline, can be very romantic. Then of course the food was just perfect, I really don't think you could get a bad meal here. I've eaten here many times and never been disappointed. If you are in the mood for drinks then you should know their bar is the hidden gem here. From "Top Shelf Long Island's" to completely hand made "Mojito's"the drinks are outstanding,they actually use liquor in the drinks :-)"

  • "Went for a special occasion and to my disappointment the meal turned out to be mediocre. It had been a while since we were there and this time the quality was a complete change. Food was not hot ,steak dry, salad ordinary. For the cost of the meal I was expecting better. Server was good. We will not return."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "The service and food were both excellent. We will definitely be returning."

  • "Absolute diamond of a place to take my wife each year. They make you feel comfortable and welcomed. Nothing bad we can say about this place. Hope it is around for years to come."

  • "We've been here a few times and always enjoyed the food, service, ambience & view. Salad bar is always great."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The Chart House is a quiet, intimate restaurant over looking the Ohio river with excellent service and food. The entire staff were very attentive and caring about our dining experience. My wife asked our waiter to take a picture of us and our food and soon afterwards the manager Dennis stopped to inquire if we were having a special night and we told him that every night together is special. The food was outstanding and extremely flavorful, arrived hot and steaming as it should have and the portions were of good size. We would highly recommend the Chart House for a special occasion or for just any time you want out."

  • "Waitress was very nice, but the pace was VERY slow."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "It may be awhile before we give CH another go. Food was excellent as always, but service was very slow for a seemingly slow night at the place. We were surprised management didn't seem to see what was going on."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Great atmosphere with very good service. Very nice meal!"
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Unfortunately the valet and view are all that can be recommended. My wife and I are familiar with Chart Houses in California, which are classy establishments. This is an Applebee's-quality dining experience - shabby decor, overcooked, tasteless food. Any chance of a romantic dinner for two was destroyed by a large party in the front of the restaurant blowing out a mic/PA system - that and being sat in front of the kitchen door. I'd be embarrassed to bring out of town guests here."
    Dined on 3/10/2014
  • "The service was tops! The ambience was outdated although the entrance makes me think they've updated that and are working their way into the dining area. There was a salad bar which doesn't fit in with the upscale menu pricing. It also doesn't feel very upscale to be able to see directly into the kitchen and witness plating and discussions between staff and cooks. The food was excellent but not what the pricing would suggest, except for the Chocolate Lava Cake which worth every cent."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We went to the chart house on a friday night to celebrate a birthday. We asked for a nice view when we made the reservation and got one of the best views we could have expected. The waiter was very nice and the service excellent. The food was very good overall though not extraordinary. There were not a lot of tables that night so the ambiance was very quiet. We received a complementary piece of cake for the birthday, which was much appreciated. Overall a very good place I would like to visit again in spring or summer. Prices are a bit too high: $200+ for 4 people with wine"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Short and sweet, this will be. The service was outstanding. Jacob was informative, knowledgeable and his suggestions were excellent. the items were a bit pricey and would have not minded igf the portions were in line. The scallops needed to be cooked more as they were not quite done in the center, but they were tasty. The talapia stuffed with crab was again very good, however, it too could have been cooked just a bit more and for the price, I feel that the serving size could have been more generous (or plates smaller at least as to appear as more food). The shrimp was good , no complaints. the best was the golden mashed potatoes and the fried crab and shrimp bites. Overall Great service by Jacob, very nice with a little disappointment."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I ate there for the first time for his birthday on Friday. The hostesses were very friendly. Our server Justin was phenomenal! He helped us with the food and drink menu. He was very patient with us and also checked on us just by walking by and glancing. He did not over smother or ignore us. His service exceeded my expectations and made a great impression and when we go back, we will request him and also recommend him."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "It was everything we expected for a romantic birthday setting. They even have complimentary cake for social occasions."

  • "We had a wonderful time at the Chart House. Food was delicious, service was very, very good. Nice family dinner with a view."

  • "My sweetheart took me to the Chart House on Valentine's Day as he knows it is my favorite place. My boyfriend proposed to me and it was very romantic. The Server we had was very attentive and recommended an appetizer that we thoroughly enjoyed. Our meals (prime rib and mahi mahi) were fixed with perfection and we had the hot chocolate lava cake for dessert (which takes an extra 20 minutes to order) and it was the perfect ending to our meal!"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "I really dont have anything bad to say about Chart House. The view is great & we went on a very busy night (day after Valentines, a lot of people going out that night b/c Valentines day weather was bad). Service was good & they were managing the heavy crowd. The food is average quality & not worth the price. We had a good time, but when Im expecting to spend $200+ on a dinner for two I will go somewhere that provides the quality to match."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Service to food to ambience was outstanding. The salad bar was amazing."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Reservation was noted and we were taken to a table within 15 minutes. Seating is good for a mixture of groups and couples.Great view - before dusk and after dark. Waiter was very attentive. Fish entrees and taste were great. Wine, Estranga, was very good. Overall a good Valentine card."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "We went on valentines day and it was very romantic. It was snowing like crazy and the view of the river/city was awesome. The service is always outstanding. And I think I like the food more every time we visit. We both chose to add the salad bar to our entrees and it was really great. I would absolutely go again and recommend to friends."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My husband and I reserved a table for a Valentine's day dinner several weeks prior to the day. We specifically requested the type of seating we were hoping to get. We were not seated at the place where we would have preferred to sit even though they have had a lot of cancellations that day. We mainly went to this restaurant for the view... and we didn't get it. The food is nothing special for the price we got. Nothing at all. It's cooked well, but definitely not something I would to pay for again. Their three types of soups were awful: overspiced and oversalted. Then there was a usual going around by the manager, who stopped at the table right next to us, told them how he appreciated their presence, gave them a gift card and left."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "My boyfriend and I went for Valentine's Day. The overall experience was great. The only complaint I would have was the food was extremely overpriced and outside of our budget. The unexpected cost could have been avoided by us doing some investigation beforehand. We would have choose another restaurant but would not have had such great service and romantic ambience. I would highly recommend the restaurant for those who can afford a $175 for two."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "This was my second visit which was prompted by the exceptionally excellent cuisine and service. I very seldom consume any fish but the Snapper Hemingway was so consistently flavorful that I had to return! Our server, John, was very attentive to our requests, courteous, and friendly which made our dinner a memorable experience. Chart House is my first recommendation to family and friends for best dining in the Cincinnati area."

  • "My wife and I have celebrated many memories here and every time we go back to celebrate all phases of the Chart House create even more special memories with great food, atmosphere, ambience, and so on... A great place to go for "any reason"!"

  • "Chart House was the perfect dining spot for our family to celebrate my 60th birthday! From the excellent, friendly curb side service of the valet, through our superb waiter, to the wait staff team and the restaurant manager, we felt welcomed and pampered. With a wonderful table at the corner of the dining room which overlooked a sunset view of the river and Cincinnati skyline, we couldn't have had better ambience. The seafood was outstanding, and drinks were divine. Thank you so much, Chart House staff, for a birthday celebration that I will never forget! You all rocked!"
    Dined on 2/3/2014
  • "My most recent visit to the Chart House was to celebrate my husband's birthday. I was disappointed in the service and atmosphere. We were not served bread prior to our meal, unlike all of the other patrons in the restaurant. Despite wearing a sweater, the restaurant was so cold I left with a backache from shivering throughout my meal. We waited for over 5 minutes to retrieve our coats from the coat check because no one was around. Finally the valet came in from outside and was able to find our coats. The food was good but as stated before the service and overall experience were lacking."

  • "My wife and I have dined at Chart House in Newport 3 times. The first two times were quite a while ago and within a year or so of when it opened. Both of those times the food was pretty good and the service was AWFUL. We decided to give it another try on Saturday night (2/1/14). The food was OK. The shrimp beignets appetizer was actually very good. The fritters were not (greasy and burned). I had scallops, which were OK but nothing to write home about. My wife had crabcakes, which were pretty good but a little heavy on the fillers. The service was just as bad as ever. I honestly don't understand how a restaurant operating at this price point can possibly get away with this kind of service. It was almost comically bad. Last time!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "This place never ceases to amaze me. Food is always wonderful, our service was great and the view superb. Hope they have wine dinners again. My friends and I loved the last one ! Love it!"

  • "My husband and I dined at the Chart House for our anniversary. While waiting for our table, we were just making conversation with the bartender and mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary. She must have told the manager who brought us a complimentary dessert after our meal. What outstanding service! Our orders were also correct, our server was great, and we did not wait long at all for our food. Love the Chart House!!!"

  • "This was an evening meal with a candidate for an administrative position. The location, food, and the ability to have good table conversation made this a spectacular choice. It could be romantic (though our particular situation was not)."
