My wife and I went there for our 55th anniversary. Had a great time! The waitress was very nice and food was exceptional! I had swordfish and it was terrific. We will be back more often!

We went to Chart House for a combination birthday/father's day outing. The restaurant is lovely, with a nice view. We very much appreciated the quiet as my mother (age 85) is soft spoken, and usually difficult to hear during dinners. Our server was fairly hit and miss, with one of us having to flag him down a couple of times. The restaurant was not that busy, with many of the tables around ours empty. The food was good, but not great. Nobody at our table was that excited about their food, though it was certainly decent and edible. Just pretty basic. Overpriced for that.

Wedding anniversary dinner. Cocktails in the bar were perfect. View was great; service was attentive but not hovering. Food and wine were sublime. (Spouse had pecan encrusted Snapper; I had Cuban scallops and shrimp with a centerpiece side of something that tasted like vanilla pudding potatoes! Wow.) This is a very affordable (even at these prices) special occasion dinner spot. The bar is a great 'happy hour' place to meet friends. Well mixed drinks and a good bar menu.

Wonderful Experience! Table by the water with a beautiful view of old Mt Adams, instant service, and great bar drinks. Server, Ted, delivered impeccable service from starters to desserts, refilling all drinks immediately, delicious Wine suggestions, attentive and energetic! Enjoyed an interesting conversation with the manager, Dennis Chastang, regarding a recent vacation and, of course, how service was during our visit. Explained we were enjoying the pace of the meal, quality and flavors of ALL the courses. We certainly never felt rushed, and service itself was seamless. Highly recommend Chart House to those who already appreciate Fine Dining and those looking for a fabulous first experience!

Overall, great ambience and great food! Service was slow to start, but the river view was priceless. I would definitely come back!
The Perfect Spot
We went to the Chart House last weekend to celebrate my birthday with family from out of town. The food was delicious, the service was outstanding and the view was beautiful. What I have come to expect from the Chart House brand. We went by boat and it was a perfect evening!
Service mean everything
Amy was amazing a chef that was out for a birthday dinner. So we took our time and had a couple of apps and then a meal and dessert all in all taking almost two hours. Amy was great she checked in kept our glasses filled without breaking our conversations, and just allowed us to have a great time. She was simply great.
Great Seafood with a Great View
With many miles to the ocean, it is hard to find good seafood in Cincinnati. However, we had Red Snapper and Stuffed Shrimp and both were wonderfully done.
The service and food are always superb.

We had a party of 12 for graduation dinner at the Chart House. Reservations were easy to make. Hostess was friendly and helpful. Our waiter was excellent - making suggestions for wine, appetizers and meals. Service all around was outstanding. Dinners were tasty and prompt. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and would return again. Thanks for the lovely party.
Service Not Up To Par.
Food was quite good, but service and wait staff were lacking. This was the second time we have had that experience. Also no recognition of our special occasion was bothersome. The timing of serving the courses was way off. Felt like wait staff was just going through the motions. Overall disappointing given the cost of the meal.
Quality, quantity, quiet experience
After enjoying our anniversary at the Chart House just a few days earlier, we had friends who wanted to join us for a meal on Memorial Day. I took advantage of the $30 special 5 course meal, while the others ordered off the regular menu. Our server was top notch and always had an infectious smile. Each course was delivered in a timely manner - not too quick, not too late. We all enjoyed the ambience with the Ohio River and it's activities providing a nice backdrop. While there were other diners around us, it was very quiet allowing for a nice conversation at our table. As our previous experience, the food was very tasty and plentiful for all. Chart House is one of our favorites.
Riverview plus great food
Always enjoy THE CHART HOUSE with scenic river views and great seafood. Spring/Summer menu on now. Fabulous Gazpacho and Mango Mojitos. Love the cocoanut shrimp too. Never get to the Lava cake- anymore-- but love this as well. If you are in Cincinnati/Covington / or Newport don't miss this opportunity to eat ON the river.

Chart House was the perfect spot for us to celebrate our daughters high school graduation. The staff and management were very attentive to our table and made wonderful recommendations from the menu. What a special night for our entire family. Thank you Chart House, you are a class act.
A Evening To Remember
This was my first time dining at the Chart House. My wife and I were celebrating our 9th Anniversary and was perfect. From the food and service to the sun setting on the river. Our server,Rory, was very pleasant and knowledgeable of all the meals and drinks. She was also very helpful with helping with our pictures. I love it and will definitely be back
We were in Cincinnati for a long weekend. Chart House was near our hotel, had a beautiful view and great seafood. Very good selection of wine.
I made the trip from indianapolis to cincinnati to meet a special lady for dinner. I didn't know what to expect since this restaurant was unknown to me. What a fantastic surprise. The staff were first class, the food was great, and though my date and me stayed in deep conversation, we were not rushed or interupted. Great dining experience. I will be back.

Upon arrival we requested a window table. There were many available yet we were seated next to a column and that is all I could see when trying to look at the river. I also presented by AARP card which should give us a 10% discount on food yet only 50 cents was taken off the bill.
Beautiful food and beautiful views
We went here for the first time after reading reviews. Very nice interior and was seated by a window with beautiful views of Cincinnati and the river at night. We were greeted and seated very quickly. We ordered the coconut shrimp for starters and was brought out on a beautifully decorated plate. It wasalmost too pretty to eat! We had the mahi mahi dish which was amazing! The atmosphere is high end dining great for business and special occassions.

We keep coming back. Had a salad bar meal this time. Great! We had the same wait staff, Morgan. We really like her. She knows the menu, the wine list, is very pleasant, and knows just when and how to check to see if we need additional service. It's all good!

Rory, our server, was FANTASTIC. It was my wife's birthday. We have only been to the Chart House once before on our anniversary and both times it was outstanding. I have told everyone about the wonderful experience, great service and food. We will be back!
it was good. solid 3 stars
no regrets choosing this place, but i dont think i am coming back. for the amount of money you spend there, in my opinion, things should be tighter – in terms of both food and service

One of my favorite restaurants--but a quibble
I actually love this restaurant--great food, service, and a view that is perhaps the best in the city. One negative point, however. On this visit and on a number of prior occasions, we show up on time as per our reservation but still have to wait 15 minutes to a half hour to be seated. I don't find this to be true with other fine dining establishments, so I wonder why it tends to be true here.

The oysters were delicious. The entrees were good, but the side items were bland and tasteless. View of the city is great.
Birthday dinner treat
Tuna, scallops, crabcake cooked to perfection. Expensive but the ambiance, great service, and delicious food made it worth it. A real treat!
Very nice views and atmosphere. Delicious meal and wine selection.
We dined here for a special anniversary celebration. Our table for two had an excellent view of the river and the surrounding hills of Cincinnati! The food was excellent, served with great presentation and tasted delicious! Very extensive wine list!! Best of all was the service! Rory was outstanding!! Very knowledgeable, attentive and a pleasure to work with! Will definitely be back soon!!
The salad bar is wonderful, filled with goodies that you never get anywhere else. The service was perfect, pleasant and efficient without intruding, and both entrees were Delicious! The view of the river completed a very, very nice dining experience. We shall go back!!!
