Amazing food and bourbon bar!

Wow! The food here is spectacular! We couldn't have been more impressed. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and mature. The bourbon drink I had (smoking jacket) was the best I've ever had! Can't wait to return for another wonderful dining experience.

Great place. Sat at the bar and had a very friendly conversation with the bar tender. I love bourbon and was very knowledgeable and recommended several with me settling on Orphan Barrell. Started my dinner with Crab Cakes, followed by lobster risotto and finishing with butter pecan ice cream and strawberry - rhebarb short cake. Everything was awesome except for... More

I really don't have the words to properly sum up the experience. The food was amazing, presentation almost too good to eat, flavors bright and combinations I never would think of. Engagement from the staff, recommendations, flexibility to accommodate dietary restrictions, and servers that don't just provide service, but enhance your entire dining experience... A tiny little gem in the... More

We had no idea that this restaurant existed for seven years none the less! The restaurant has two floors but is extremely small and cramped but the food makes up for it. Not sure about the service. The gentlemen that waited on us had only worked there for a few days and didn't seem to sure of himself. He also... More

We were greeted very warmly by Sibylka, the hostess, who made us feel very welcome even though we had arrived early for our reservation. The staff were friendly with each other and with the customers all night. This restaurant has a very positive atmosphere and is tastefully designed. We were amazed at the Kale salad, which was probably one of... More

Wine list - amazing. Food - fresh, local and unique combinations. Artistry at it's best. We have so many great restaurants in the greater Cincinnati area but this is worth the try.

I can't say enough about this restaurant. Really delicious and healthy food and the service is spectacular. They opened the upstairs so there is more room but it's still difficult to get a reservation at a good time on the weekends. Best of Cincy for sure.

I was very pleasantly surprised by Bouquet. I've lived in Cincinnati for a number of years and had never run across it. The inside was cozy, mildly lit, and well decorated with a wine theme. All of the food was excellent. The temperature was bitterly cold outside, so it was a bit drafty when large groups came in, though the... More

I recently visited this restaurant while on a business trip to Cincinnati. I came on a Tuesday and the place was packed for good reason. The food is excellent and the selection of wines is top notch. I ordered the high end wine flight, their olive plate, and their scallops. All were excellent. If you have a chance to go... More
