My husband and I met another couple here for an early dinner on a Monday evening. It was easy enough to find and there was ample parking in the lot next to the restauant. It is a small restaurant so I would definitely recommend making reservations. There are some tables outside also. One of... read more

Bouquet is one of the best meals you'll find in the Cicinnati area. Be adventurous and go to Covington, the fun side of the river. Steve and Jessica are committed to excellent food sourced locally, unique preparation, and excellent service. Entrees and appetizers rotate regularly based on season and availability. A few of my favorites are the pork chop, the... More

This is nice little bar, food average, value not good. Just had the squash blossoms appetizer, was $12 for two very small stuffed squash blossoms. I complained to the waiter and his response was "Ok, I hear you", but did nothing. Overall, found the portions to be small and the prices like a finer dinning place. We will not go... More

Restaurant located in area where you can get shuttle service to all Reds home games. Everything here was superb, and delicious well prepared meals are really the name of the game! The special I selected resulted in the very best tasting catfish dinner ever! Do not hesitate...go! Reservations can be made through Open Table.

My sister and I had driven over from Indianapolis to see Lil' Bub at the Leaping Lizard Art Gallery, and we were starving. Driving down Main Street in the rain, we spotted the sign to this restaurant and decided to stop in. We had great meals and even better service (I wish I could remember our server's name; she was...

Everything about our dinner at Bouquet was great! The cocktails were spot on and the food was delicious, and the service was great! We had fried zucchini blossoms (the special that night) and sweet potato flatbread to start, then the risotto w/ chicken and burgers for entrees and all 3 desserts, which were excellent! Bouquet is a great spot, highly... More

The food at Bouquet was wonderful. We both really enjoyed it. It was a bit loud given that it is such a small place. We found the lighting and decor to be intimate however, and even ran into people we know!

Unique food. Very good. Came with 8 friends a number of times and have never had a bad meal. Also came with a group of ladies, all of us 55-65 yrs. of age. No one ever has a complaint.

I always appreciate a restaurant with impeccable service, even when the food is not quite an unqualified success. Such is the case at Bouquet. The lobster risotto, while a little light on the seafood, was delicious: slightly creamy and served at the perfect temperature. Regrettably, the sauvignon blanc selections were limited to three bottles, with the best of these no... More

Cozy is the word that comes to mind...but not in "too small or cramped." I frequent Bouquet mostly for brunch, which is the best in the region. Biscuits and house chicken gravy is my favorite. The restaurant is small, reservations are suggested, but it's always worth the wait. If you live in Cincinnati you should already know how great this... More
