Chart House Restaurant - Newport (Cincinnati) Ratings and Reviews

Talked with Dennis the manager earlier in the day to confirm my open table reservation and also to be sure I could get their 25.00 Birthday credit that I had just received that morning. I asked for a table by the windows and he said would not be a problem and on top of that he would give us the best seat in the house well the table e received was just in front of the salad bar by the waitress's computers for paying your tab etc. Asked what the special of the day was and she told us took our drink order came back to the table just a few minutes later and told us they are out of the special already??? Our reservation were at 7:00 pm!
The meals were ok just not as good as they have been in the past Told Dennis we we're celebrating my 67 th birthday and he mentioned a desert would be included which it was not the waitress was not aware of the birthday celebration at least it didn't seem like it until it was mentioned. Overall this experience was not up to our previous experiences

The Chart House is a great place to go if you want an outstanding dinning experience. The food, the servers, and the ambiance helped to make the evening outstanding for our Grandson's 18th Birthday. Thanks to all

We had reservations, were seated 40 minutes after the reservation time. Manager made it up to us by comping us an appetizer and gave us the largest, Nicest booth in the place. They were also out of several items, which was frustrating but the staff did everything they could to keep our dining experience an a positive one. Great manager and staff that made the meal of mishaps quite enjoyable. B+

Took my gal here for Thanksgiving Dinner. We had a 7 pm reservation and arrived at the restaurant at 6:30. Knowing we were early we decided to go to the bar to have a drink before dinner. After realizing that we weren't going to get a drink before dinner not that the bar was too busy, but that there wasn't a single person working that acknowledged us, we sat at a small table in the bar area. My girlfriend thought that she could wait at the bar and be served but the bartender never looked up. Foreshadowing...
We were seated in a cozy table and our server arrived promptly. We ordered a Double Berry Mule-house specialty drink which arrived flat/uncarbonated - I had a white russian which was sat on the table with no Kahlua in it was plain white looked like white milk. With a smile on my face, when the server came back, I let her know about the drinks and she only replaced the White Russian which ended up being the bartender poured a portion of the drink out and replaced with a shot of Kahlua. I'm a bartender in a past life this should not happen. We were going to order a bottle of wine but decided that we would see how dinner went first.
We ordered the Thanksgiving dinners. Food arrived timely and server walked away before I realized that the pepper on the table was empty/had no stopper on the bottom. When she came back she let me know that was the second time that had happened this evening. We finished dinner which was good but turkey was dry - portions of sides came out in ice cream scoop form. I had to remind the server about desert and she apologized that she had not asked what we wanted earlier.
All in all that's how it goes sometimes. Certainly was not what I had expected from the Charthouse and we went there special obviously for Thanksgiving dinner. No one besides the server came to our table to see how things were and when we left no one from management asked anything about how our meal or evening was - fairly dissappointing.

We went for Thanksgiving. It was the first time, ever, going to a restaurant for the holiday. The place was busy but service was good, as well as the food. Everyone seemed to enjoy ordering what they wanted. My daughter is a vegan and the chef made her a special stir fry that she would not have gotten at home. Overall, it was a very good experience and we look forward to doing it again.

The Chart House, Newport, KY (Cincinnati), is a top rate operation staffed by well managed industry professionals.
The clientele were appropriately dressed and respectful to others personal space. The noise level remained at a comfortable level, allowing for table conversation at normal decibels.
The food was delicious and expertly prepared, with the exception of the turkey, which was unusually dry.
The ambience & 170 degree views make the this restaurant an overall Five-Star Experience.

Special note on our menu. A round table for seven allows for better conversation. Server was aware of our celebration and was most pleasant. Had a nice view of skyline across the river. Iced prosciutto was at the table (a gift called in from Florida sister). This was our 50th wedding anniversary and was a great dining experience.

Worthy of the View
There's no question that the Chart House offers one of (if not the best) view of the Cincinnati skyline and the Ohio River. However, is the food and service worthy... Yes!
My son and I met up with my sister's family for a celebratory dinner before my son heads off to basic training with the US Army. I'm a big fan of the Chart House in NYC (where I now live) so we booked a table for 6. We started with an amazing spicy shrimp appetizer which was amazing. My son and I both ordered the sword fish, which was cooked to perfection as was everyone else's meal.
We finished the night off with the signature Lava Cake that disappeared quickly.
I'd also add that the service was warm and friendly and the drinks from the bar were up to standard.
Having dined at Chart House locations in Malibu and NYC (on the Jersey side of the river) I would say that Cincinnati is fortunate to have such a great venue for celebrating life events. I can't recommend it more!

Went to charthouse for our daughters 21st birthday. It was absolutely perfect! They put her name on her menu, nice touch! The service was excellent! The food was outstanding! Everyone said they would definitely come back!

We went with a party of 8 which is sometimes difficult to seat and permit conversation but were pleasantly surprised by a nice round 8 top, attentive service and adequate views even though we were not at a window table. A very enjoyable evening

Only negative was the lighting at out table. Menu was hard to read and needed cell phone lighting to read menu. Either increase lighting, darken the print with larger font or provide small flashlight for customer.

Grandma and Grandpa, Aunt and Uncle visiting college freshman and his girlfriend. Beautiful views of the Ohio River as the sun set.
From the professionalism and warmth of the hostess staff, through the genuine greetings of other servers and cooks, to the managers making sure all was well, the service could not be better. Our server spoke too fast, which made it difficult for the elderly grandparents to understand some things. A lot of asking her to repeat herself made it frustrating
The food? 10 out of 10. Prime Rib, Filet Mignon, and a Strip for the cow lovers; nightly special Mahi, Black and Bleu Swordfish, and the Chowder for the seafarers. Sizzling mushrooms were a hit!
A wonderful evening for and by all.
Thanks very much to the staff!!!!

Friday 8pm reservations with notes (in town Nashville for a engagement, first time to area). Welcome with a smile from valet parking to the time we left. Our table was next to the window with a great view of the river and downtown skyline. Our server, Rachael introduce herself and commented on us being there from Nashville and on us being in town. Yes, they read my notes included with the reservations! Rachael was outstanding. Our meal included Red Shrimp & Scallops, NY Strip...which was very well prepared/great taste. Thank you to the staff for making this night special.

The complimentary valet parking was a nice welcome. We had a couple drinks at the bar while we waited for our table. It was all that we would expect. Our 8:00 reservation was ready as promised. Our sever, Stephanie was prompt and friendly. She did a fantastic job throughout the entire evening. She even took a few photos for my date and I. The drinks and bread arrived promptly. The appetizer arrived in good time. But we were very disappointed in the quality of the dish. My salad was great. My date ordered the three soup samples sampler and all three soups were less than favorable. We didn't eat them. The main course arrived, again in perfect timing. My date and I were both a little disappointed with meal. The service and ambiance were truly wonderful. I understand how hard it is to hit a home run every time. But I would still be reluctant to visit Chart House again knowing how it compares to the competition a couple of miles downstream. Having had the best indoor seating that Chart House offers was nice. And again, the service was excellent.

Came here for a good fish dinner for birthday but was disappointed the fish was dry, not moist and flaky. Service was bad - not much attention from the waiter who seemed not to enjoy his job. In fact everyone seemed like they were doing their job and not particularly happy. Although I was celebrating a birthday and included it on the reservation and when I arrived - no one including the waiter ever acknowledged it nor offered a small treat for the celebration. It was my first and last time here. I do however like their sister restaurant Mitchell's Seafood House a mile away in Newport.

Fantastic, as always. Stephanie was delightful, attentive and helpful. Food was perfect. Someone arrived to lower the window blinds to shade the setting sun the very moment I thought it was needed, like they read my mind! It was a great evening. Overall, the very dining experience one could want.

Chart House does not disappoint. Great service and a great food worthy of a special occasion. I had swordfish and my wife had steak and both were cooked to perfection. The complimentary mud pie for our anniversary dessert made for a perfect conclusion. I would recommend Chart House to anyone who has an intimate special occasion to celebrate, and the ease of the reservation through Open Table made it a snap.

The Happy Hour was great! We had dinner which was also great! The view, service, ambiance and food was just perfect. We could not had a better evening. We have raved to everyone we know that they need to go there. It was our first time going there, but it will not be our last.
