Amazing food and service

I ate dinner at this restaurant on a Saturday night. I followed my server's advice and ordered the crab-encrusted filet and it was one of the best filet's that I have had. The meal came with a side salad full of fresh greens and I ordered the potatoes au gratin for my side item. Everything... read more

We went on Saturday for the New York Stip special and it was well worth the trip, It was not too warm so we were able to sit outside. Very nice atmosphere. The food was excellent and the service couldn't have been better. Oh, and we got dessert to go. Best Chocolate Cake ever!!

Bartender berated waiter in front of customers. Made us very uncomfortable. Food was good but atmosphere was blown.

We went to a Red's game today and searched for a place for dinner. The reviews of this place were great, but don't hold a candle to the actual experience. The food was fantastic and the service was even better. Italia was the best server we have ever had. The bread pudding is to die for. If we were residents... More

We just got off the plane and went staright there for a 9:00 dinner. Boutique restauarant with an extensive menu. We shared the 12 oz blue cheese ribeye which was outstanding. We tried the burnt brussel sprouts which were excellent. The kids shared a 6 oz filet Migon and all meat cooked perfectly. The salads were huge and the dressings... More

We went to Blinkers last night for the first time and we were a party of 8. We had called a few days before hand and made a reservation so we didn't have to wait for hours (wrong!) we had a reservation for 7:30, unfortunately we weren't seated until almost 9:00. The bar area service was spotty, there seemed to... More

I found Blinker's after doing a search for good steaks in the Greater Cincinnati area. I am glad I found it! My friend and I arrived shortly before five on a Friday and the restaurant was pretty empty and this made me a bit nervous. It wasn't long before the crowds started coming though. We started with a calamari appetizer... More

The atmosphere is wonderful for talking no loud music, the bar is situated where it doesn'r interfere with diners enjoying their meal. I have been there several times for dinner and sometimes just for the bar. In the winter it is a wonderful place for a quiet date dinner or before going out. The food is well prepared and exceptional,... More

The food was exceptional. This was dinner out for my birthday, and I spoiled myself with the crab crusted filet. It was truly awesome. The place is nice looking - not too dark, not too loud with TVs, etc. The only reason for the four rating was that our server hit two of my pet peeves. #1 - When you... More

Decided to go to this place because of proximity to our hotel and the reviews online. While we only went for lunch the trip was amazing. This place had an interesting spin on food. Pastas, burgers, and sandwiches. It is strange, but it works. Some serious attention is paid to the food. I ordered the Philly steak sandwich, the wife... More
