What a find!

First time there, and so glad we went. We had snapper and stuffed poblonos (stuffed pepper) - both were amazing. The fish was very fresh. YSC is in a beautiful old building. It was a perfect spring evening so we were out on the paver patio, which was gorgeous. There was a "big band... read more

My wife and I had another good dinner at York Street Cafe. This place has a quirky but nice atmosphere, an unusual menu, and good casual service. The prices are moderate so it is always a good value. Some days they offer wine specials that are a special value.

The burger was really good and the scenery was nice. Good soup and salad. Very eclectic place with lots of old time knick knacks. Reminded us of grandmas house!

We arrived at 7pm on a Friday night, fully expecting to wait an hour for a table. We were greeted promptly, seated at a window table immediately, and our waiter was spot-on the entire night. It was as though we were celebrities. We were introduced to the daily specials (rack of lamb and red snapper) and as we looked through... More

We were anxious to try this establishment based on some positive reviews but boy was our experience a bummer. Arriving @ 7:00 on a Saturday night can be a challenge but waiting an hour to get seated was not a problem. The service and food thereafter can a only be described as non-existent and poor. We sat down at 8:00... More

York street cafe is a staple in newport. They have been in business for years. We eat here several times a year and it is always wonderful. The desserts are all amazing. The decor is eclectic and fun. You can't go wrong ordering a meal.

The food is really good. Lots of things to choose from and they are all delicious. They have a very different decor. Lots of old things to look at and enjoy.

Overall, this place is now near the top of our list for the Cincinnati area. We arrived just as the crowd was leaving for the theatre across the street so we almost had the place to ourselves. Super neat facility, used to be a pharmacy, maybe 100 years ago. Stained glass windows, wood cabinets line the walls, ornate wood serving... More

One-of-kind antique look & feel. Creative, and different style lunch menu! (in a good way) A Great, older style, restaurant environment - that provides a positive feel! We will certainly return to this place...

Four of us went at 8:30 on this past Saturday night. Place was surprisingly not crowded. They were showing Rocky Horror Picture Show across the street and we got there just after the show dinner crowd had left. Chris was our server. Nice, fun guy with a baritone voice who should be in theater. We started with the Baked Brie... More
