Diner Reviews
  • "Food was not nearly as good as columbus. Calamari was way to large making it chewy. and the lobster was over cooked making it tough and not worth the hassle. Mashed red potatoes were way too chunky for my preference. they even had a mistake on the gluten free menu which could be a huge problem to some one that is allergic."

  • "Love going to Mitchell's, primarily on special occasions or whenever we go to Newport on the Levee. The food is always good, and the sweet tea is great too. The best option they offer is the ability to book reservations and also online. Not many places are as accomodating and get you right in with the reservations."

  • "We decided to try to get reservations in the day of Fourth of July since there would be a fireworks show on the river that evening. So we booked the reservation for 10 people including children. When we arrived we they were actually able to sit us 5 minutes before our reservation. We were very satisfied with the whole experience. The food was just perfect the service was very good although it didn't have the over though the top, make you feel like you were at a five star restaurant feel like I was expecting, but nevertheless very good. They actually had a couple specials on the menu that were extremely reasonably priced, lobster or crab legs for $20. And they were both excellent. Overall everyone in our group was happy and we'll go back!"

  • "Made a reservation for a Birthday thinking it would be a higher class restaurant than Red Lobster with a nice view of the river. Paid the money for the higher class... but was sorely disappointed. After ordering and waiting for about 25 minutes we received our food. The scallops I ordered were about room temperature (cold by the time I was half-way through the meal) and the vegetables seemed to be microwave quality. My girlfriend then discovered a hair in the middle of her vegetables after lifting a piece with her fork (meaning hers could not have fell in it) and the manager was notified. She was brought new vegetables 10-15 minutes later, but no discount was even offered as we received the bill of the full $51. We will not be returning."

  • "Very nice service by Jesse in the bar. The food was much better than the last several trips there. Problems in the kitchen must have been resolved. All the servers were friendly and we will return."

  • "The four of us enjoyed our lunch. The Chilean sea bass was excellent as were the scallops. The service was efficient and timely w/out being intrusive. Our waiter was knowledgeable about all aspects of the restaurant. The creme brulee was one of the best I have ever eaten. We plan to go again and would highly recommend Mitchell's."

  • "Food was amazing, service was a little slow, and the check was expensive. It's totally worth it if you want an elegant night to yourselves and can splurge."

  • "There was a group of 16 at the same time my husband and my reservation. We waited 40 to 50 minutes for our food. While our waitress was apologetic, we will probably not go back any time soon."

  • "After being esorted to private dining room, I had left restaurant to go outside to return to our things/gifts being removed and there was another party put inside the room. I did ask what was going on and was told they share these rooms and there is a 18% gratuity that is also added to bill. I was just here a month ago with reservations for the same room and neither information was given that day. WE did not share the room NOR was there a 18% gratuity added, we paid individually.We were LIED to. Why? Why would rules change within a month? Why werent they communicated during the time of making the reservation? Just not happy with this visit, and dont know if and when I will return."

  • "Came with my family to Mitchells for my birthday dinner last week. The Alaskan King Crab legs are absolutely to die for. They are served with hot & fresh drawn butter and a side of asparagus and delicious mashed potatoes. They sawed off the spiny parts od the crab and pre-cracked them so it was really easy to get into these. My little brother got the ginger salmon and loved his dish as well. It was flaky and delicious with a great taste, but not overpowering, as ginger can be in dishes. I also recommend the moscato sangria- it's a slightly effervescent sweet moscato served with chilled strawberries and oranges."

  • "Hosted a client from out of town and wanted the opportunity to have casual conversation, yummy food and a view of Cincinnati skyline. Mitchell's delivered!"

  • "We actually went to the Mitchell's in Tampa on Westshore, not Newport. I will tell you it was impossible to figure out how to add more people to the reservation and or cancel. I had to call the restaurant and make the change. Thanks when I figured out that when I clicked on the Westshore website, it opened a reservation for us at Newport. The food was good but not up to it's usual high standards."

  • "Great food, excellent professional and knowledgable service paired with a great view. Dine on the balcony for a great view of the river and a background of the Queen City and never a bad dish!"

  • "Not sure what it is about the "upscale" restaurants on the river in Newport. All seem to be lacking quality servers. Ours was attentive at first and then went into a cocoon. My pet peeve is when servers do not keep wine glasses filled when ordering bottles of wine. If I am paying good money for the bottle, I do not expect to pour it myself. That off my chest, the food was fantastic! View is incredible and had the humidity been a little lower for the ladies hair, we would have sat outside. Would definitely recommend this for the food and hopefully the server issue was isolated here. "
    Dined on 6/2/2014
  • "Great drinks and delicious food. The Ahi tuna appetizer while very delicious was skimpy for the price when compared with other establishments. All in all though if you like seafood this is a must in the Cincinnati area!!"

  • "We have been here multiple times with our family. The kids have a menu that is completely accommodating for them. We love the fresh fish. The view from the outdoor seating is unbeatable."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "The waiter made us feel badly for not choosing our selections swiftly. He was intimidating and abrasive. Ruined a birthday dinner -- not that this was every recognized. I don't remember ever feeling so uncomfortable as a patron in a restaurant. The breading on the seafood was so thick you could not taste the seafood. Couldn't tell you if it was good or bad. We have visited this restaurant in the past and did not have these experiences. However, we will not be visiting again. There are too many other restaurants in the area with friendly waiters and better food for the money. Would recommend Bonefish Grill versus Mitchell's. "
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "Being a repeat customer, I was disappointed with our dining experience this time. The server was rather brusque and not particularly seemed concerned of our needs. While the appetizers were great (lobster bisque, clam chowder and giant shrimp cocktail), the entree was very disappointing. The fish was on the dry side and the pasta was very tough and salty. I remember this place being better than this, both in service and food. I hope they will improve in the future."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "This place helped me to understand the difference between mediocre seafood and fresh, great seafood! The lobster was cooked to perfection and the lobster Mac and cheese was excellent!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I have dined at Mitchell's, by choice, three times in the last four months. The first was an event, in a separate room, celebrating a 90th birthday. Our server was professional and personable, our food was perfection, and our memories were unforgetable. Second visit was my birthday and a small group of four -- same results. The third visit was our anniversary (party of 2) and, again, the same results. In short, Mitchell's must be doing something right to keep us coming back. And, in addition to the attentive staff and great food, the cheerful, infectious greeting at the front door, is worth the visit. "

  • "Reservation for a party of 14 made months ago, re-confirmed day before. Arrived on time restaurant was packed. We kept getting told it would be any time the party at our tables was taking their time. Waited 30 more mins as walk ins were being seated and one large group. The manager met me and told me that it would still take more time and they brought us free appetizers, shrimp and calamari. Love the shrimp not the calamari don't like the spidery legs. Finally almost 45 mins after the reservation we were seated. This was for my wifes 60th birthday and they did bring her a bottle of champagne and 2 glasses! While 14 others looked on and an hour after our reservation we still did not have our drinks or had our orders taken."

  • "We went for dinner (at 5:30) on a Saturday for a birthday/mother's day celebration. We had our twin toddlers (not quite 2 yo) with us. They were totally fine accommodating us with kids. The kids menu was good. We had the calamari appetizer which was outstanding! My husband had the American seafood combo, which was very good. I had the lobster/shrimp stuffed cod, which was good although the cod was maybe a tad overcooked. The mashed potatoes were so yummy. For my birthday, we got a free dessert which was nice. For mother's day, I got a rose. Very nice place to celebrate. Location in the Newport Riverwalk area was really nice, next to Aquarium and other shopping/dining. Great patio, and windows overlooking river. Would recommend!"

  • "We ate at the Fish Market to celebrate Mother's Day. It tends to be price, but the price for lobster tails seemed a bargain, so we splurged for them. The food and view were both wonderful, as expected. The restaurant was full at times, but always quiet enough for conversation. We expected everything to be excellent, and it was."
