Chart House Restaurant - Newport (Cincinnati) Ratings and Reviews
A series of unfortunate events. I called the day before our reservation to confirm. Yes, they confirmed the reservation and time. We arrived 15min early. Were told our reservation was in 30min, didn't get seated until 45min after we arrived and this was only after a stern conversation w/ the hostess. We ordered the Halibut (they were out of that.) Now I ask you, how can a fine dining restaurant be OUT of something on their menu when it's still early in the evening (7:00 by this time) and on Mothers Day. You KNOW you're going to be busy--just look at the reservation book. Then it took over 45min to get our dinner...so long that the server brought the side dishes that were ready first, b/c he recognized how long we had already waited. The service was AMAZING. The poor guy did EVERYTHING he could to make up for what was lacking in management and in the kitchen. This is very unfortunate b/c the reason we wanted to go to this restaurant is that is was soooo amazing the last time we went.
First negative review in a while.
Reservation -20 minutes past scheduled time-no explanation given
Hostess-dressed inappropriately, not friendly
-starters not available-short staff how can the Chart House not have seafood towers?
-main uneventful: several items not available-no lemonade, no kids chicken, no kids menus
-not offered desert
Tough to see us coming back
on positive note-waiter tried to make the best of a bad situation
Our initial contact at the bar for a drink while waited for a table was not so good, almost rude. But things improved at the table. Server was great, so was the food. We each ordered a different seafood entree prepared 3 different ways and they were all excellent.
Excellent service. Calamari appetizer was very good and a very large portion. The prime rib was excellent and my husband enjoyed his steak. The waterfront views are stunning and we really enjoyed just sitting there watching the current and enjoying the sun. Will definitely be back to explore their seafood options next time.
It was a great and memorable evening for my wife and our kids as we celebrated her birthday. The Chart House is one of favorite resteraunts to eat at, and we do not get very mant opportunities. She was surprised and somewhat apprehensive with our picky 8 yo. Great news was had when our server shared that they did have a kids menu. We were all impressed with the birthday menu that my wife recv'd and the dessert. The food was great, the atmosphere was wonderful, the rivee view was enjoyable, and most importantly the staff was friendly and professional.
Went here for a business meal and the food and service were very well done. Our server, Rachel, was knowledgeable, attentive and very helpful given one person in our group had food allergies. We had the shrimp cocktail and tuna trio appetizer per her suggestion and both were delicious. My colleagues had the halibut and I had the Hemingway Snapper and we all enjoyed our meals. It is a nice spot on the river.
The hostess didn't look very happy. She didn't smile until we started joking with her. Seating was quick. The other hostess made sure we were sat at a table with a great view. Ordered the pan-seared shrimp and scallops with the cauliflower mash. Very tasty, but only had 3 or 4 each of the shrimp and scallops on the plate. Good sized helping of caul mash that came with chopped vegs on top. Lava cake was delicious, as well as the Luccio Moscato wine. My date ordered the prime rib and Wow! the size of it! All was very delicious. Pleasant dining experience for our romantic weekend with fantastic views and good music. Our server, Stephanie, was very professional and knowledgeable of the menu. Great job!
We daringly opted to sit outside on Easter but were driven inside by a sudden thunderburst of heavy rain. Our servers took it all in stride and helped carry our food in. They had warned us of an impending storm, but we chose to take our chances. I realized afterward that our risk-taking inconvenienced them, but they continued to be gracious, cheerful, and helpful. Three cheers for Rachel and the young man who, also, was on duty that afternoon.
Service was very good. Friendly. Recommend not to sit by a door that goes to deck.
Storm was coming up. Door blew open by its self. Food was flying off our table. 3 people coming inside. My husband's food was blowing off of his plate. Across the room. Manager or servers did not come and help us . Finally they came and had to lock the door. All the food was
good. What my husband was able to eat was good. Some had blown on the floor.
The Chart House is one of our favorite places. We hosted several large parties there because of the food, service, and view of Cincinnati. We lived in another city, that is known to be a foodie town. When we returned, it was as good as we remembered and rivaled any of the restaurants we frequented while we were away. If you have not been there yet, make the time to go and enjoy the chopped spinach salad, shrimp cocktail, shrimp biegnets (for Easter brunch they had Goetta beignets), or the snapper. Their Bloody Mary is very good and nice with brunch. Management is always attentive and stops by the table to make sure everything is satisfactory. Don't forget to make reservations because they are generally very busy for brunch or dinner. Believe me, it is worth the drive.
We dined at The Chart House restaurant Saturday 4/15/2017 and had a very enjoyable dining experience. It was not crowded, little to no wait, but that may have been due to it being the night before Easter.
Food was very good and service was excellent. Our server Jana was very knowledgeable of the menu selections and the wine list. We will definitely return.
It had been awhile since I had eaten at the Charthouse, and I kind of wish I had waited longer. The food was fine, just not what I would have expected for this kind of restaurant. I felt like I had taken a step back in time, and not in a good way. They had a salad bar! The view of the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati, ultimately the main reason to go there, was great. The molten lava cake dessert was great. Maybe next time I'll just go for coffee and dessert.
We went to the Chart House for our anniversary and we were not disappointed. They went to great lengths to make sure we had an unforgettable evening. The waitstaff was very attentive making great recommendations on appetizers (got the stack and it was amazing) and main course options. Glasses stayed full and dishes were immediately removed. Our table with a view of the river was quiet and romantic. The food was phenomenal and the atmosphere was perfect. Not really a great place to take kids but perfect for adults looking for a comfortable sophisticated evening. We look forward to returning very soon.
Both of our steaks, different cuts, were VERY well-done despite being requested to be medium-rare. The place was completely empty on a Sunday night so there was no excuse for such a poorly prepared meal. After almost 10 years of using OpenTable, this is actually the first negative review I've ever posted but feel that the meal was an expensive waste that it should be shared. In their defense, we did not request a new meal prepared because it we were not interested in waiting for them to try again. Normally we would not have ordered steak at a seafood restaurant but their advertisements gave us reason to believe that they were worth a shot. There are many places that offer a much better steak for less!
Have always enjoyed our visits to the Chart House and this was another good time. We went there with friends. The food was very good and the service was excellent. We ordered from the "Early Bird" menu. Very nice selections. The complimentary valet parking was a very nice touch.
