“Excellent dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

We had a very enjoyable dining experience at the Chart House with a fantastic view of the river and Cincinnati. The restaurant was very, very busy due to graduations taking place that day but, we received excellent, polite and efficient service from the wait staff. We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. The valet service was very convenient. The Lobster bisque and Clam chowder were absolutely delicious. We had Halibut, Coconut Shrimp, Lobster Ravioli and Mixed Seafood Grill. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The portions were very generous so we ended-up taking food home. The Molten Lava cake served with ice cream was delicious and large enough to serve the 4 of us.
We are looking forward to our next visit to the Chart House

“Not like the Original”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We have been to every Chart House there ever was since 1995. When the chain changed hands there was a noticeable decline in the overall character, sad to say.
The original would never say that corporate was in charge. The answer to a request would be "What can we do to help?"
That being said.
The food at this store is in general, very good. Moldy Strawberries on salad bar were a surprise!
The service is also mostly, very good. Our server did everything right. Valet parking is great and courteous.
The surroundings? A great view of the Ohio River and the city. The Recorded music from the overhead is NOT in keeping with an upscale dining establishment. A mix of Rap, Hip-Hop, Popular , and Country. Annoyingly loud. We asked that it be turned down and the manager complied. Why should I even have to ask for this?
The building is in need of a facelift. The window openings on the river view area are peeling paint and showing bare wood. The interior is in need of some minor trim repair.

“Beautiful view, great service, average food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I love dining here when in the Cincinnati area; great view of the city, great service. The menu and wine list disappoint. Sauce for the shrimp too sweet. Very expensive. But still, I keep coming back for the view, which makes it worth a visit.

“Fine dinner, good service, nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

My wife and I celebrated her birthday at the Chart House. We each had a lovely dinner. She had salmon; I had snapper. We had a nice table overlloking the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati. Our server was pleasant and attentive. The only negative, was the recorded music; it was awful. The manager indicated they had several complaints but the corporate management was responsible for the music. Corporate needs to lisren to its customers.
