Glad to see vegan, vegetarian & gluten-free options!

I went here with a group of friends on a Friday night. We had a reservation for 12 people and we were in a cozy little area by the bar. It was dark and parking was a bit of an issue. We fortunately found a street spot not too far away. The decor here was a lot of fun and... read more

Good food, and good service in a nice setting. There are many delicious selections to choose from along with your favorite beverage. Friendly and knowledgeable wait staff help you with your selections, and the owner is always willing to chat. Prices are in keeping with the good food and service.

Had a great evening at this quaint little restaurant. Loved the ambiance, service was great (shout out to server Chris :-) who checked in often, and was very personable. We started with the house smoked smoked salmon appetizer that was awesome, and followed that with the house special fish: red snapper served with a topping of cheeses, spinach and artichoke... More

Chris our server was incredible & the entire dining experience was perfect from start to finish. We were greeted by the owner and were explained everything. No surprising upcharges! The... More

Very quaint and homey atmosphere. This was our first time here and I will be back! I will probably never get anything other than the free range Amish chicken, because it was so amazing! This was chicken stuffed with Applewood bacon, onions, Gorgonzola cheese, with a hard cider cream sauce over it, served on a bed of seemingly homemade mashed... More

I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant! We came for our anniversary and were not disappointed. The service was amazing and the waiter even staggered our meal so it came out slowly and we were really able to enjoy ourselves. It was very eclectic and interesting with lots of paraphernalia to look at everywhere. We enjoyed a four... More

The American mule was perfect, the chilled dill and cucumber soup was delicious, and the red snapper was out of this world! Decor is cozy in an elegant flea market kinda way, wit free street parking. Friendly, efficient staff. I love this place and would come again in a heartbeat, especially to enjoy live music! Found on Cincinnati City Voter,... More

If you are looking for an unpretentious, warm atmosphere where the host and servers make you feel truly appreciated and the menu offers something for everyone, go to York Street Cafe. Menu includes dishes for vegetarians, beef lovers and seafood cravers - all of them well prepared. Nice fresh steamed veggie sides and generous portions. No room for dessert although... More

Cannot give a review on meal or service since we were not given the opportunity due to their mistake in our dinner reservations. We had made Saturday night reservations for 6 people at 5:45 and when we arrived at 5:50, the OWNER said he had given up our table since we were late for our 5:30 reservation. We informed him...
