  • "My wife and I arrived at the restuarant were the valet service parked our car. We went inside and were greeted by the very friendly hostest who promptly asked if we would like to sit inside or out. (we chose outside), The view was perfect, overlooking the river and the skyline as the sun set made our evening perfect. The service was excellent and the food is some of the best in town."

  • "We had a fantastic meal here on July 2, 2014. We had reservations and arrived early. They seated us with no problem. Everyone from the valer, hostess, water server, waitress, manager....everyone was extremely nice and helpful. I had the chicken romano which I have had other places. This one was fabulous. My husband had the shrimp with pasta. His was very good with huge shrimps. We also had dessert and the salad bar. The salad bar was extensive including caviar. We would highly recommend this for the food. Oh yeah...it has a great view of the hillside banks of Cincinnati on the Ohio River. We went originally for the view not knowing what to expect with the food! Beautiful experience all around."

  • "Our dinners were tasty but served pretty cold. We were catching a show afterwards so didn't have time to send back to warm up. We ordered coffee and tea; never got the teabag to put in the hot water, and never received sugar/creamer to use with the coffee. Pretty disappointed."

  • "We had a lovely evening for our anniversary. The staff all wished us a Happy Anniversary, gave us plenty of time without interruptions, yet kept our drinks, etc. filled. The food was great as was the dessert."

  • "My boyfriend and I had a lovely dinner at Chart House. We sat outside and had the whole deck to ourselves. Right along the river, Chart House has a great view. We were able to watch boats and got to see beavers swim by as well. Amazing service and the food was great, overall. The chopped salad wasn't outstanding though - the lettuce was shredded to smithereens and kind of wet. And there wasn't much else on the salad. Other than that, entrees and dessert were great. Good choice if you love seafood!"

Out view was excellent and the staff had even printed a personalized message on top of our menus. The food was excellent (large portions) and the service was fantastic. Try the stuffed mushrooms! We will be back again!"

  • "Jeff was our server, and although he's only been there a couple of weeks, he was quite knowledgeable and personable."

  • "I went to eat there this past week. Celebrating a special moment with my girlfriend. I called the restaurant earlier in the day just to confirm my reservation for that evening. I spoke to Reid, the Executive Chef, to tell him about our special evening and he put us in a great spot against the windows with what I believe is the best view of the Cincy skyline at sunset! The food was over-the-top great. Can't wait to go back again!"

    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We were looking forward to a special dinner to celebrate my sons 25th birthday. We arrived early and had drinks in the bar. We informed the hostess we were there and could eat earlier I they had room. They said they were booked and we would be seated at our reservation time. No problem-we knew we were early. However, when we were 30 minutes past our reservation time and MANY people who arrived later than us had been seated we were not happy. We finally got to our table 40 minutes past our reservation time. The food was good and the service in the restaurant was also good. We found out at the end of the meal that if you are a member of the "club" you get bumped to the front of the line for seating. Not cool. "

  • "Food was awesome! Great service! There clam chowder was the best i have ever had! NY strip was cooked perfect! Service was great! I would recommend this place to anyone! "

  • "The view, wine and food are the perfect trio for an excellent night out."
    Dined on 6/5/2014
  • "I started with the best of soups to get a chance to try all 3 soups. My favorite was the gazpacho, it was delightful. A very close second was the lobster bisque. A very distant third was the clam chowder. There is some kind of herb or spice in there that did not appeal to my taste buds. I said something to our server, apparently this clam chowder has won awards. It wouldn't by my taste buds. I like they had a salad bar so I added that to my entree. I had the new surf and turf as my entree which had the beef short ribs and I chose the scallops for the turf. The scallops were on the small side, so would've appreciated 1 or 2 more. For dessert I had the fruit from the salad bar. I thought the music was playing too loud, though."

  • "we had a birthday, and the server was more than helpful....really enjoyed ourselves!"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "The food was a tad salty, specifically the rice side dish. Dessert took forever to come out, and the apples were not cooked."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We had made our reservation and requested a window view overlooking the bridge. We were seated as far back at the other end of the restaurant as they possibly could (away from the view of the bridge). There were 4 of us celebrating a Birthday and one of us ordered a Blue Cheese Filet Med/Rare, and it came out Med/WELL. They had to cook another steak, and to rush it, we asked to omit the Blue Cheese. It was very disappointing to have 3 of us eat, while the other waited. When they brought the check, they took off the Filet, but added the cost of the Regular Filet, and they ALSO charged for the Birthday Mudd Pie. No apology, compensation or etc. We will not go back, much better Filet and service at J. Alexander's."

  • "Although we always enjoyed the Chart House, we have not visited for way too long. After Friday night's dinner we agreed to visit again soon. Superlative service from a server who was knowledgeable and witty. Support wait staff were prompts, well-spoken understood our sense of humor and gave apt response. Food was everything we expected and the bill was most reasonable for all we received. BTW those who had seafood claimed it was equal to what they enjoy at two local seafood specialty restaurants, and my steak was better than the last one i was served at the steakhouse across from the Aronof Center. All that with a beautiful sunset on the river!"

  • "This was a birthday dinner and, thus, a special occasion for us. The meal was fantastic as was the service. I would recommend Chart House to anyone looking for an outstanding dining experience."

  • "Reservations were for 7pm. We didn't get seated until 7:45pm. Both salads were not what we asked for: one came out with mushrooms when it was requested not to have them and the other was requested as gluten free and it wasn't. The salmon and mahi mahi were dry and over cooked. Too noisy!"

  • "We went to the Chart House for an early Mother's Day lunch. The weather was great and we had a wonderful table with a view of the river. We arrived 10 minutes early and were annoyingly held in the bar until our reservation time. The server was friendly and knowledgable and remained attentive throughout the meal. When the food arrived, it was quite artfully plated, but the disappointment began. My wife's snapper was over breaded and overcooked. My crab legs were slightly fishy and inexpertly cracked. Neither were terrible and if we has been at Red Lobster, wouldn't have thought much about it. At Chart House prices, the expectatations were higher and were definitely not met. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The best thing about the Chart House is the view. We arrived early to have a drink at the bar and the bar tender was out of glasses because many were left on the bar dirty from previous customers. She didn't have enough help on a Saturday night and was slow to serve us. She also was chomping on some chewing gum which was very unprofessional for a supposed "High End" restaurant. The place did honor my request for a nice seat since we were celebrating an anniversary. The food was good but for the prices it should have been excellent and I'm sure we were simply paying for the view. I would not recommend the Chart House because the view didn't make up for all the other disappointments. Very "chain restaurant" like and didn't seem well run."

  • "This restaurant has quietly become one of my favorites in the greater Cincinnati area. The food is outstanding and the service is friendly and courteous without being overbearing. The scenic view makes it perfect when you want to show off your city to a newcomer, but it is equally as impressive for a romantic evening with that special someone..."

  • "The food was average, but OK for a busy Mother's day. It was fare you would find at typical family chain restaurant but double in price. Server tricked me into signing up for reward points pointing out we were just a few points away from earning rewards (check was $200). To our surprise $25 dollars was charged to my credit card when the check showed up. He acted like charging for a loyalty program without informing the guest of fee was perfectly normal. (How many loyalty programs do you pay for?) What kind of restaurant does not tell the guest of a fee before charging their card? The Charthouse for me has the feel of buying a used car from a lousy dealer. In my opinion the Bonefish restaurant is a significantly better choice."
