“Good food at First Watch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

It was our first trip to First Watch. I loved the Rueben sandwich and my wife liked her salad. we also saw pancake stacks that looked like breakfast on my next visit. The service was good. My only small complaint was the acoustics. The restaurant was packed at lunchtime, and the noise was quite loud.

“Brunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed dining at First Watch Restaurant. It has a large selection of items to choose. I had a pecan dijon salad that was absolutely delicious! My husband had an omelet. The service was good but it took a while for food items to be brought to the table. The atmosphere is very pleasing.

“Newly opened, on the right track”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

We had been waiting on this place to open and were excited to find out it had.

Bright open seating plan. The music was a bit too loud and everyone was trying to talk over it. Very noisy.

We ordered the parm hash and 1/2 sandwich and soup. Also a large bowl of fruit as an app.

I will say everything was fresh. The fruit bowl seemed a bit over priced and not all fruit was ripe.

The parm hash was excellent as was the soup. The servers seemed to be getting their sea legs but that will come in time.


We want to go back and try the bacon cheddar pancakes...

“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

We had heard about First Watch during a recent visit to Cincinnati. We waited for 20 minutes for a seat...and it was worth the wait. The service was OUTSTANDING! The menu is varied and offers healthy options, too.
The pumpkin pancake was a delicious treat!
