“Fabulous, but expensive, food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Food is superb. Great beer list. BUT, by far the most expensive beer in the city. A decent Pale Ale from Founders will run you 8 bucks, and anything from the bottle list you're looking at 20+. Great if you got the cash. Service superb as well.

“Truly outstanding restaurant in Clifton -- and a new favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

I recently had dinner at this restaurant, my first time there under this incarnation, and I was extremely impressed. The menu is creative and interesting, and the food was extraordinarily well prepared. The restaurant is very well staffed, and service is attentive, friendly, and effective. The wine list is great, and sommeliers are available to help choose.

Overall, this place rapidly has become one of my top-three favorites in Cincinnati.

“The best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

My two sisters and I visited this restaurant in the Clifton's Gaslight District on Oct. 1, 2012. Our experience was so special that we returned on the following night. We were staying at a nearby bed and breakfast and the owner said we could not go wrong with this restaurant. She was right. Every dish we ordered was excellent. Our servers were knowledgeable, friendly and solicitous. Each question and request was attended to in a wonderful way. Standout dishes included the chicken liver pate, mixed green salad, crimson pear salad, pork shank, and a fresh regional fish dish. The sommelier was very helpful and the wine was fabulous.

“Great for lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

I have only dined here for lunch, but each time was a good experience. The lunch menu offers main selections and side selections. One price if you choose only a main dish, slightly more if you choose both a main and a side. The items are not individually priced. Very simple, as is the decor. The service is friendly and efficient, the food is well prepared and pleasingly plated. The wine list offers plenty of reasonable choices by the glass or bottle. It is on the upscale side for Clifton dining, but the prices are reasonable. Recommended.

“Excellent Clifton Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012 via mobile

I've been to La Poste several times, and always enjoy it. The food is consistently excellent, as is the service. The menu changes seasonally, and there are always interesting specials. I especially like the ravioli, which is very flavorful. The decor is also very nice, not casual, but not stuffy or formal either. This is a great place to go for dinner before a movie at the local theater which is right around the corner.
