“disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2012

We were celebrating a special family birthday and were looking for a special place. The ambience was very nice as was the service. After reading other reviews I expected we might have a long wait for our meals but the time was not unusually long for what we ordered. We ordered two appetizers and one wine. The appetizers and wine were fine . We ordered Pork (three little pigs I think it was called) the Skate fish wings and scallops and duck. The duck was fine and the scallops were nothing great but presented very nicely. The Skate was good but they poured a very salty dressing over the fish at the table instead of letting you do it yourself. It overpowered the dish to our liking and made it a very average meal. The pork was absolutely inedible. It was 9/10 fat and it was traded to three people at the table and no one could eat it including my wife who would eat an old shoe and not complain. We split a recommended choclate dessert that was not on the menu and it also was dry, hard and something that just was not first or second class. They never asked us how our meal was, so we did not complain. We tipped a full 20% because the service was okay but will just choose to find another restaurant in the future. It was more or less average food at a little over average prices but the zinger was a meal delivered to the table that should have been obvious to any chef, Jean Robert or anyone that cooks that this was not an edible piece of meat.

“Wonderful service, great food, fair price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

We took our daughter and friends to dinner for her birthday. Our group of six had drinks, wine, hors d'oeuvres, salad, entre and even some desserts and the total bill was still under $500. The service was extraordinary, accomodating but inobtrusive. The food was very good--not especially unique but very well prepared and delicious. (The menu is ala carte.) For an upscale feel with a moderate price, this is a great choice.

“A taste of Europe in Cincinnati”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

While there are a few authentically European restaurants in Cincinnati, this is definitely among the top. I lived in Europe for many years, and have been traveling there for work for many years. So I like to pick out the real menus from the imitations.

“I was sick and it was still awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012

My husband took me for my birthday last year.... I was under the weather. We had to wait awhile for our table even though we had reservations. We had a booth table by the window which was lovely. The food was wonderful and the "vibe" was awesome too.

“Disappointing (especially if you have high expectations!)”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

What a disappointment! We were looking forward to trying this place after reading the reviews! We were a table of 4. Three of the four appetizers were really good but the 4th one (seared fois gras special) was raw. My husband sent it back & EVENTUALLY got another one that was better but the texture just wasn't very good. For our 4 entrees, only 1 was good... The blue cheese burger of all things. The rack of lamb was almost raw & the veggies served with it were awful! The duck was WAY under done & on the pork 3 ways, the pork belly was also WAY under done (which is gross when it's not crispy). The lamb & duck were impossible to cut through. I know we should have sent them back but we already waited an eternity for our sent back appetizer!! There was no way were chancing ordering dessert here after such a bad meal! We REALLY wanted to like this place!
