We had a 96 person rehearsal dinner there last weekend. I was a little concerned about the size of the room but they fit everyone nicely. I wouldn't try getting many more people in the 3rd floor banquet room. Betsy handled everything very well although she only works on certain days so be prepared to wait for responses to your... More

Really enjoyed the food, the building and the outdoor terrace. The locals get understandably first class service but we gave up on drinks being promptly delivered and my after dinner coffee cocktail never showed up at all. Server was distracted for much of our meal, but we will eat there again and enjoy the upstairs swing bar!

This is a great spot to hold a rehearsal dinner. The restaurant is in this 100 year old building with an appealing quirky/funky vibe. We had appetizers and drinks on the private second level and then moved to the third floor to seat nearly 50 people. Best of all, the food was fabulous and the service impeccable. Ask for Betsy...

Took my wife and parents here this past week-end, based on the Tripadvisor recommendations. My wife was somewhat skeptical because of the location, but we were all extremely pleased. I was concerned that the restaurant didn't take reservations but we were seated immediately around 6:30 on a Saturday night. It got busier as the night went on and their outside... More

York street is a grest restaurant. You can count on a great entree, good service and desserts to die for. Their appetizer plates to share are also outstanding.

Enjoyed a quiet lunch with friends. Nice, friendly service but not cloying. Try the pear salad with candied pecans, bacon and a wonderfully thick balsamic reduction. The grilled chicken dried cherry salad with a mustard dressing was also tasty. Fresh desserts and coffee finished a pleasant meal.

This is a gem in Newport. Delicious soups and desserts. The menu is seasonal, and fresh. Share the hummus plate. The veggie pasta is great too!

We have never eaten here before this past weekend. We bought one of those half price deals and decided to give it a try. Everything was wonderful. It's a small funky little place in an old home a few blocks from the Levee. Decorated with everything from Virgin Mary statues to Elvis memorbillia... I think that about covers it! Service... More

York Street Cafe decor is eclectic to say the least. The menu is unusual and always good. Our most recent visit was for dinner with two friends and everyone enjoyed their meal. The prices are reasonable and they offer great special wine prices on Wednesday.

The York Street Cafe has become my go-to place for visits to family in the Cincinnati /Northern Kentucky area. The decor is entrancing, with the most eclectic collection of statues, luggage, knick-knacks, instruments, tables and chairs, wall-hangings and anything else that suits the eye. Meals are amazing. One should really not cite specific dishes as there is nothing on the... More
