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

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

A wonderful little neighborhood place. We enjoyed a delightful meal, a burger and salad for my husband and blackened shrimp over jalapeño cheese grits for me, finished with a really nice traditional chocolate cake ( and I'm very fussy about cake). Only hassle is they don't take reservations and you have to find a place to park on the street.... More

This is my second trip to this restaurant. Outstanding! This time I had a small autumn salad that was to die for and mussels in a sauce that was pure heaven. I had room for a few bites of chocolate mocha layer cake, mmmm. Add an eclectic atmosphere and excellent service and you have a winning formula. If you are... More

Funky decor, fresh and well-prepared food. Men's restroom needs a real cleaning. Friendly service. Desserts are to die for.
