Our waiter, Chris, was fabulous. He was friendly and gave us advice when dining out as well as things to do in the area. Initially, I was concerned when Byron seated us. I had just removed my facemask prior to being seated and Byron was rude when he said to put it back on. Byron had allowed others to enter without a facemask. Your establishment owes Chris more for making the reservation worth it after the experience with Byron, especially since Byron is one of the "higher ups" who clearly looked down on my significant other and me as customers as evidenced by treating us different from others who didn't have a facemask on. My significant other had his on the entire time, but I had taken mine down briefly. I have seen how Byron interacts with other customers at previous visits to your establishment versus how he has interacted with me and my family. He has ignored us, choosing to seat and wait on others especially women dressed extremely provocative to the point I regretted my teenagers seeing his interaction with them. Chris is one of the best waiters ever at your establishment. Another was our first waiter back in 2018 whom was an older gentleman. These men are far superior to the women working in the same positions.

Per the menu, options are limited due to COVID-19 reasoning. This was disappointing as some of the very best dishes were not available.

We sat at our table for 25 minutes without being greeted by a server. We alerted other servers and manager several times to make them aware, and were told to hold on. Other tables around us seated and promptly served. After requesting a server for the 4th time to the manager and given an excuse, we left the restaurant.

Happy Hour was very good, great drinks app's and service. However, our server had also been assigned a large party of 20 so our service was poor. The food, once it arrived was great but the large good should have been managed differently.

Went to the Chart House for a birthday. Our server Jeff was great, very attentive and helpful.
I ordered the stuffed shrimp and so did my daughter, we both felt the dish was nothing special. We ate only about half of our dinner. The shrimp had very little flavor and could have used a sauce because the crab stuffing was dry. The food did not match the price.
That was the only disappointment for the evening.

Food selection seemed limited and was fair quality... not a good value, though. I get the feeling that the restaurant was either struggling to recover from the COVID limitations and/or getting ready to sell or give up the property. It just didn't have the same quality I experienced in the past or expected. The wait staff was nice, but seemed to be inexperienced and/or limited in knowledge. It just looked and felt dated - again, full credit to the struggles with COVID but not what I would have expected overall from what used to be a fine dining experience.

Ordered Tuna/pasta dish & salmon dish for my husband. I totally erred on the tuna...it was more of the raw type & the server didn't alert me to that...I take responsibility for my poor choice. Once it became known to server, I would have loved for him to say do you want something else. Didn't happen. Lesson learned. Just to let all know, we gave a generous tip due to covid but, it would have been nice had the server said he would exchange for something else. In normal conditions, I would have fussed!

We have dined at the Chart House before and had much better experiences each time. We arrived a few minutes after 6:00 and were seated promptly. We sat for nearly 15 minutes before our server greeted us with water. We asked for restaurant week menus and waited again. It was at least 20-25 minutes before he came back to take our order. I'm not sure whether it was the responsibility of the waiter or the kitchen or both but our 3 course dinner took over 90 minutes. This takes a leisurely dinner to new dimensions. When our main course arrived our soup bowls were still on the table and not cleared until we were done with our main course. All in all, not the service that we expect from the Chart House. I will stand behind my recommendation of a 'Yes' below as this was maybe not indicative of what the service should be, not what it was that evening.

My wife’s prime rib was ok but not great. She blames herself for ordering beef in a seafood restaurant. I always order the clam chowder here, but this time it seemed that there were more potatoes and less clams than usual. I originally ordered the shrimp and scallops dinner, but was told they were out of scallops but they could substitute all shrimp. Instead I opted for the spiced ahi tuna, which was good, but not what I really wanted. This is our regular go to place after Sunday Pops concerts, but the past two times the food, which is normally five star, has not been as good.

As usual the Chart House did not disappoint. The food was exceptional as usual and the service is always top notch. Our server, Joel, was there when needed but did not hover. The ambiance is always a comfortable vibe where you can have a conversation in a normal voice. You always expect great food and service at the Chart House and they always deliver. Fine dining on the river with great views of the Cincinnati skyline. What more could you ask.
