    Food was terrific with good variety of options. Had small issue with two different bourbons ordered being out but server was attentive and friendly. Portion sizes are reasonable which was a relief compared to the excessively large portions served most places. Our group ordered the fries with lobster gravy, salmon dinner, gnocchi dinner, the dirty French burger and a salad. We were all impressed with our meals and would definitely come back!

    We love this place! Our family goes there on the regular. We have to force ourselves to go to other restaurants just so we don’t let it get played out. The food is amazing, service is great and the vibe is dope. They have a reel to reel playing really good music from different genres every time I go in. My favorite is the old school hip hop. Great for any occasion from a day night, family dinner or even a large group.

Our drinks were good too. Eric our server was knowledgeable and friendly. Great ambiance and fun vibe. We will be back!

    The menu takes simple items and works them into being more elevated. The deviled eggs can be shared by two. The matzah ball soup is in a vegetable broth and is quite savory. The wedge salad is the most interesting version I’ve had, with goat cheese and slivered almonds and a nice spiciness to it. The gnocchi was beautiful and flavorful. The chicken schnitzel combined a salty fried chicken breast with tender arugula and a semi-sweet sauce. Cocktail menu was great - try the Hemingway. Desert was the chocolate pudding with sea salt. Restaurant is really loud and bustling. Make reservations on a busy night, do not expect a walk in. Overflow looks to go to the bar and a screened in patio.

    My husband and I went to SB for a date night. It was our first time. Wine selection was limited. We ordered the deviled eggs, which were very good! Could use more of the pork rinds (it was listed as an ingredient but there was literally 2 little pieces on the plate). My husband got the chicken schnitzel. It was okay but could've used a side, maybe a vegetable or rice or something, anything! I got the single cheeseburger. It was good, not great. The fries were tasty and came with mornay sauce. For dessert my husband ordered the almond cake - I didn't care for it but he loved it. I got the lemon ricotta pancakes. For a dessert, it was a lot of pancake. They should just stay on the breakfast menu because they aren't really a great dessert item. They were just okay since they were more on the bland side. Our server was Erin. She was wonderful! Very friendly and attentive even though she had a lot of tables! It was quite loud in there, which wasn't great for a date night. But if you want a cool downtown place with friends, it's great! Parking around there was a nightmare but it WAS a Friday and it's not anything the restaurant has control over. While we are not likely to go back, we would still probably recommend that others try it.

    Great food and friendly service. Our party of five people ordered several dishes and shared them. We were pleased with the food and pleasantly surprised by the very reasonable bill. For several dishes and coffees the price per person was around $25 before tip. We loved everything and were so satisfied.

    We were seated immediately upon arriving to the restaurant. Server was a little slow to take our drink orders and then food orders. However, once our order was in, the food was delivered quickly. Oh wow, so amazing, everything was great. Looking forward to coming back in the future.

    My wife and I were supposed to have brunch with friends, but our friends hit it pretty hard the night before and slept through our reservation. My wife and ended up having the Goetta, maple pork belly, hash browns with kimchi ketchup (must have!) and the Foie gras torchon which was very tasty. The espresso martini, Bloody Mary, and the sazerac were all delicious. Our server was a male, slightly longer brown hair and was on his game. Very knowledgeable, prompt, and appreciated my Grateful Dead hoody. We ended up wrapping up breakfast only to get a phone call from our friends 10 minutes after we left. So we went back to the hotel only to jump in an Uber to head back with our friends. We decided to get the French toast which has a great flavor, consistency, and the whip cream was money! We went for the Lemony Snicket (it was just ok) and a White Russian which all I can say is the Dude definitely abides! It was fantastic! I had a glass of bubbles which was served in a wide rim glass which tends to make the champagne flat rather quickly. I’m a professional and being New Years Eve I simply slammmed it. I can’t say enough about the vibe. The real to real music with some seriously dope speakers sets the place apart. I hope this is around for years to come. It is definitely the best brunch place I’ve ever found while visiting Cinci. To the owners- keep on doing what your doing because you nailed the conception from top to bottom! I don’t always drop $240 on brunch, but when I do I leave full and with a great buzz. Keep on slaying dragons!

    We went for early dinner, sat on the heated porch which was fine as the day was balmy for December 30. Loved the lox sandwich and the lemon pancakes. We were assisted by multiple servers which made everything go smoothly.

    Really a nice dining experience. Service was good, nice to see they were fully staffed so they could execute. Food was outstanding. I had the Lemon Ricotta pancakes, so creamy and not too sweet. Paired nicely with a Pinot Grigio. My date said his chicken schnitzel with Diablo sauce was the best he’s ever eaten, and the may eats a lot of chicken. We highly recommend and also highly recommend reservations.

    My husband and I went here for the first time recently. The food was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was great. The issue was with the service. I understand during these unprecedented times, service and staffing can be a challenge. In this case, though, the server went missing. The rest of the servers were taking care of everyone around us and hustling. Our server was nowhere to be found. We never saw her again after our food was delivered, we had to ask for drinks three times before we finally got a second drink, and we were almost late to our show. It would be different if I saw the server was trying, and doing her best, but we literally never saw her. There are too many other options in OTR that will have better service for the money.
