    Our server was not knowledgable, nor efficient. Bread was requested, but never delivered. Drinks were slow to be serve even though the restaraunt was not crowed at all. Food was warm at best. Not sure if I will go back nor recommend this restaraunt to any of my friends.

    Outstanding customer service - booked reservation for two for Sweetest Day and another couple wished to join us - called Mitchell's and Steve was very understanding and cooperative. He explained it may be an additional few minutes from original reservation time. We showed up approximately five minutes late and they were preparing our table per my original request with the scenic view of the Cincinnati Skyline -- didn't expect that since we modified reservation and would have understood if such request could not be honored. The customer service from our waitress was outstanding - not too frequent but effective check in's to monitor our progress.

    Our waitress was very accomodating given our timeframe! I had special (butternut squash ravioli with lobster) that was wonderful but my son's Alfredo sauce was very bland and he said tasted like clam chowder :-). I mentioned to the waitress that he didn't like it and I didn't think it was tasty either. Not sure if it was an 'off' night fo the sauce or what. No offer to replace it though and he didn't eat it at all. I shared my salad with him and he enjoyed the french fries and fruit too.

    This was our first visit to Cincinnati in years. Fond memories of the Celestial dining on Mt. Adams years ago. But being great fans of the Mitchell restaurants in Columubus, decided to try your Fish Market in Newport. FABULOUS! We'll be back.

    Typically service at Mitchells is top notch: efficient, and friendly. This visit was quite the exception. Took about 15 minutes for a server to come and get our beverage order. It took longer than usual for the beverages to be served as well as for the entrees to be served. While we were not looking to have a quick bite and leave, it seemed like we were waiting for quite a while between service calls. Perhaps they were understaffed that day (evening of Friday October 17th). Not what I am accustomed to at Mitchell's. Food was excellent as usual.

    We shared a meal with good friends at the Newport Mitchell's. We were seated at a booth with a beautiful view of the Ohio River. All of our food came in a reasonable amount of time, was perfectly prepared, and at a perfect temperature. The homemade bread is delicious. I love their lobster tails, and they were delicious, as usual. We had creme brulee for a great, light dessert. I loved my Sangria, made with a white wine and full of fresh fruit. Each person who helped us - with our reservation, seated us, took our drink order, and then our server, was friendly and helpful. If you haven't tried either Mitchell's in this area - there is another one north of Cincinnati at the Streets of West Chester - I highly recommend them.

    We had a great time! Weather was wonderful and outside was very special. Entertaining relatives from Calif. and wanted them to be impressed by "fly over" state and city. They were - as the skyline showed itself beautifully that night. Eating inside is not as special as outside even though we love the food. I cannot imagine why the outside wall facing the Cincinnati skyline is not all floor to ceiling windows so diners can feel the ambiance of outside even though they are inside. Oh Well - the builders didn't ask me so there you have it!

    We had a 7:15 reservation. We waited about 45 minutes at the bar because there were 4 parties ahead of us. Once our name was called, we were told we either had to sit in the bar area, or outside on the patio. (It was about 65 degrees out, no patio heaters. We didn't have jackets) Luckily we weren't in a hurry and the food was really good.

    As always the food was very good - the best seafood restaurant in the area. They have the best lobster bisque and crab cakes. The cerviche is a nice addition (not enough menus include this appetizer). Service is always very good. We frequently dine here for lunch. But, we will not be dinning here in the evening. There were several large parties that elevated the sound level beyond comfortable. Our biggest complaint, however, was with our reservation. If we were 15 to 20 minutes late for our Open Table reservation I would call the restaurant and hope that could accommodate us. Asking us to wait that long while seating people without reservations is not acceptable no matter how long they had been waiting.

    My hubby took me to my favorite restaurant to help de-stress and that is exactly what Mitchell's helped me do. We sat outside to see the view and although it got chilly toward the end, it was quieter (around 7:30-8pm) and romantic. Service was fantastic. I had the tenderloin kabobs with the lobster tail and although the lobster tail got chilly quick, it was all very delicious. The grilled veggies were a great side. I still wish I could get the Lobster Bisque as a soup with the Prix Fixe menu, but the gumbo was still very good. I took my Creme Brulee to go so it didn't hold up too well in the container, but was still the perfect ending to a well needed date night! I hope to be back for my birthday!

    8 people on a busy Saturday evening. Our host and server were courteous, well trained and professional. Service was consistently attentive; always there when you needed her but never intrusive. Extensive menu. Food was very good, although less exotic than is my wont. Shrimp and mussels appetizers. Six different entrees. All good; no problems. Orders were taken and delivered promptly but without rush. Views of the Ohio River, bridges, ballpark and skyline were excellent. Picture-postcard sunset with great cloud color over the cityscape. Parking ($5) was easy once we found the garage entrance. A ton of interesting shops and buskers in and around the Newport Levee complex that made strolling before and after dinner a nice extra.

    I enjoyed my dinner at Mitchell's fish market, however, I have two issues that aren't huge but sort of disappointing. It was my wife's birthday, I did let the restaurant know this but they did not do anything special at all not even complimenting her on her birthday. Second, they advertised that they had $20 bottles of wine on Sunday evenings. When we asked for the list, the waiter told us it was not available because of the fireworks the city was having. They said it was considered a holiday so it wasn't available. They should have noted this on their website I feel. But even though theses two things were disappointing, the meals were excellent.

    Hostess took party of 4 to a table with only 3 chairs. We asked to change tables, hostess said that we needed a reservation. We made a reservation a week ahead for a table by the windows. Stood there waiting for a 4th chair. Tried to order white wine, waitress said a cheap white wine from the grocery store was the best one. We ordered lobster tail, server did not bring any drawn butter although other tables had it. Waitress never checked on us after the food was served, lobster was cold by the time we flagged down someone to get butter. Drinks were long gone, done eating before waitress asked if we wanted more. Dirty dishes not properly cleared. Waitress brought us one free dessert to share, too little, too late.
