Small but well done menu selection. Blackened salmon is to perfection. Ambiance is iff the scale filled with a large eclectic collection of mementos from yesteryear. They will aytomatically give you topics for conversation. In certain days have live music upstairs hazz to big bands and everything in between. The butter rum filled bundt cake is the best dessert within... More

Service staff was very helpful in describing the menu and features. Food was delectable and cooked to perfection. Ambiance was eclectic and inviting. Prices were reflective of portions and quality of food. Would highly recommend the York Street Cafe for a quiet night out on the town.

Nice lunch but it really does over rate and over price Too bad Because I really think they would get more trade if they would come down on their price a wee bit and serve more kid friendly food

Great eclectic collection of antiques & collectibles. A lot to look at & makes for great conversation. Menu had great selections. Started our meal with spinach& artichoke toasties which were deliciously amazing. The cheeseburger was made to order juicy and very good. Staff very friendly & helpful.

Being from upstate NY, I only get to the greater Cincinnati area to visit my daughter and son-in-law a few times a year. But we always make it a point to have dinner at the York Street Cafe. The food is incredible! The menu is large enough to offer a good variety but small enough so as not to be... More

We hadn't been to York street in over 15 years. We decided to stop on for dinner last night. The first thing that struck me was I didn't remember all the vast amount of "stuff" (read junk) that decorates the place. It's conversational but it also needs a good cleaning. Not my cup of tea. Our waiter was extremely nice... More

This is the hidden gem of Newport if you ask me. Great food, service and atmosphere. One of the places that we suggest on the rare nights when we can talk someone into going to dinner with us. Plenty of vegetarian options, which are usually some of the more interesting entrees on the menu. When was the last time you... More

Most amazing dining experience I've ever had. We were treated like royalty throughout the entire meal. The food was amazing. We will be returning very soon and will also recommend this restaurant to everyone we know.

What a lovely, warm, customer oriented place. Very good food, fun, friendly and knowledgeable waiter with good service. Had an issue with food allergy and both Chris and the owner went out of their way to "make it right" - such excellent customer care! Rare to find such a genuinely caring owner that made such a difference. And my "make... More
