It was the perfect romantic setting for a post-Valentine’s Day date. Beautiful scenic view of the Ohio River. The food was absolutely delicious. Service was great. Just an overall great place to enjoy a meal.

We were here for Valentines Day. Our reservation was for nine, so finding out that the Cedar Plank Salmon was no longer available was not a big surprise. Instead, we both chose the Spiced Ahi with the furikake rice, wasabi cream & ginger soy. It also came with steamed carrots and broccoli. The Chart House Restaurant is highly regarded for it's seafood. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. I've never had Ahi so flavorful, fresh and tender! The service was very good. The view of the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati was excellent. We had a very good experience. We highly recommend The Chart House Restaurant.

Food was very good. Went there for Valentine's Day, so it was packed. Our server was slow, chatty and everything dragged on. When it was finally time to go, we missed our food boxes because the server placed them on the seat out of view.

It was Valentines Day. It was crowded and noisy and the staff was working to the max. I believe that the quality of the food suffered because of this. I’m reluctant to go back. I could’ve done just as well at Bonefish or Mitchell’s for half the cost.

The appetizer crab cake could be much better for The price. It looked like someone just slapped it together and smeared it all over the plate, not chef valuable at all, bad first presentation

Good food, good selection (seafood, steaks, and prime rib), and great view of the city of Cincinnati. Service is attentive and, thankfully, the background music is there but not obtrusive.

The Chart House offers the best dining views in Cincinnati. The food is average to good, I think most feel they need to report it "delicious' because of the price, not the taste. Avocado, shrimp appetizer bland at best. Mahi blackened, and mushy. An hour for food. 20 minutes for coffee to arrive after dinner, 15 more minutes waiting before we cancelled desert and ask for our tab. 10 more before the ASM brought a scoop of ice cream to tell us desert was almost coming out. We stood and walked to the front receptionist telling her we would meet her there for the tab. Best advice, have the salad bar skip, the entrees and serve yourself while enjoying the view.

Good, but no Wow factors. I had checked out the menu online and was so excited the had brought back the Beef Carpaccio. We had this a long time ago here, and they took it off the menu. I also called to make sure it wasn't a mistake on the online menu, and they said "Yes", we are serving it. When we went Friday night to celebrate my Husbands' Birthday, they told us that it was no longer on the menu. I told him we just checked the menu online and also called. The only response was, well the menu changed. Also, the only white fish was Red Snapper, of which I ordered, and it was very good. Service was good, view was good. They just need to up their menu with some more exciting menu items.

We had reservations for 4:00 Restaurant opens at 4:30. Went to bar for drinks, but happy hour prices start at 4:30. Nice bartender gave us the happy hour menu, but we were charged regular prices. Waitress was good, but we said we could not do dessert because we were going to a play. Brought us a complimentary bday dessert. Very nice, but it was ice cream, so it melted while we attended the play. Took a bit to get our check, rush to get to Aronoff. Food was good!

Overall it was a bad experience. Went to celebrate a birthday with my sisters. Seated on time, ordered drinks, declined appetizers, then ordered our entrees. After 45 minutes the female manager advised my sister that her entree was not available & she had to tell other customers the same thing. Why did this take 45 minutes to realize you didn't have it? I truly believe or order was passed over by the kitchen staff. We watched other tables order after us & have their food before the female manager approached our table. She also wasn't very friendly. There was a male manager that did come to speak with us & he was ver personable. I think she needs some retraining. How does a nice restaurant not have items available on Saturday evening when it was fairly early. Although her entree ended up being free it made for a disappointing evening. Dessert was also offered & we ordered apple berry crisp. There was nothing crispy on the top, the apples were not done. Our waiter did the best he could & kept apologizing but the blame comes on the management & who ever does the ordering.

The food was as we expected, above average. One of the managers, Eric Wines, made an appearance at our table to ensure everything was meeting our approval. He even knew what kind of top shelf bourbon was in my glass which told me he had more than a passing interest in our satisfaction. Will (William), our server was courteous, attentive and spot on with every aspect of our dining experience! The evening was great!

Ambience and river view was beautiful. Definitely a great place for quiet conversation, birthday or anniversary, special occassion. Food was okay, seemed overpriced and overrated. Salad bar was great, very fresh items and good variety. The service here was very wonderful from the valet, to the servers, host and cooks. We really enjoyed ourselves for a snowy night out for dinner with an awesome view!

Amazing food and great environment. Love the place and will definitely go back.

Server treated us a little like she didn’t care about our table like she did her other tables around us. It was weird. Almost like she decided we were not good tippers the minute we sat down but I don’t think that was it. Probably just over analyzing what I saw.

At any rate we loved it :)
