We dined at Bouquet and were very pleasantly surprised. We sat upstairs by the bar. It is a lovely little restaurant. The food was really good and the waiter was very attentive. We enjoyed everything we ate. We sampled much of the menu. The meatballs...were especially good. We can’t wait to return.More

We eaten at Bouquet 8 or 9 times, have met the owner/chef and experienced great service before. This time the food was poorly done. The "hot food" was served below room temperature, the cocktails were watered down and the wagyu burgers came out rare-- yes...rare. This was a special occasion for us. They were fully staffed and not busy. Not at all like we've experienced before. No longer one of my top choices for dining out. It was bad.More

Discovered this little gem of a place online when planning a girl’s weekend. We were lucky enough to sit upstairs on the rooftop without any other guests - thank you Covid. Our server Lauren was so attentive and knowledgeable with every little detail. The quality...of the food was superb and her recommendations were spot on. We did the 4 course dinner with wine pairings and had zero regrets. Everything from the cheese platter, salad, mushroom special, tomato tart, chicken and dumplings, duck, steak and desserts - were all perfectly prepared with such talent and care. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a true foodie experience. Definitely would suggest making a reservation in advance like we did.More

Stopped by this weekend and stayed longer than anticipated. Sat outside and enjoyed happy hour drinks and appetizers. Best Manhattan I have ever had and the charcuterie board was out of this world! Service was outstanding. Staff was attentive and friendly beyond belief. Went with...our German Shepherd and he felt like a king. Plan to head back our next time out and about.More

With covid-19, many restaurants not open for dying and service. Fortunately the Bouquet restaurant is. It is a shame that they're only allowed 25% capacity because you don't know how these restaurants are going to make it with that capacity. Our first course was risotto,...and it was excellent. The rice was perfectly done, not too tough and not too mushy. We then split the duck, which was out of this world. Perfectly done medium rare with a slight Char to the skin. The desert which was a chocolate ice cream over peanut butter chocolate bar was worth every calorie. The coffee, from a local coffee roaster was incredibly good. Many times you have a great meal and the coffee is atrocious, but not at Bouquet. Our server, which is also the hostess and everything else in between, and I wish I could remember her name was not only friendly, but also very good. Come out and support this restaurant, because it's excellent.More

Traveling on business and found this gem. Super cute atmosphere with a small outdoor seating area. If you like duck, you have to eat here. It was absolutely amazing!! One of the best preparations I’ve had in a long time. Staff was great too. Loved...it allMore

The food was very unique in taste. Skip the appetizers and order the entrees. I will definitely be back to try more options on the menu. It is a tiny restaurant that feels over crowed. The service is a bit slow so plan on spending...some time here.More

Enjoyed the quiet, intimate atmosphere. Food was great and it's all sourced locally. Very nice wait staff and management.

I’d give this spot a second chance. I walked in as a party of one and sat at the bar. The couple to my right had been waiting for their food a long time - I guess there was a mixup with the kitchen. I...ordered a drink and he forgot that as well - so I’m guessing the bartender forgot to put their food orders in. I was a little disappointed there was no local wine at this wine bar - is there really not a single winery within the states of Ohio and Kentucky? As a Californian I wasn’t going to spend $20 on a glass of Veuve when that’s the cost of the bottle back home. And I like to drink local when I travel. I ended up having a bourbon neat at his recommendation and it was good. I ordered the fish of the evening and found it tasty but oversalted - the sauce was great though. I also had the glazed apple cake which was a bit dry and lukewarm when it got to me but alright. It seems like some of the reviews claim this restaurant is hit or miss and I could definitely see that.More

I was here in 2017 and was very impressed by the charcuterie and the fried chicken special. My husband and I were looking forward to a repeat experience. We ordered the charcuterie and were very disappointed because the meats were deli pickle loaf (are you...kidding me!) and packaged salami. The cheese selection was boring. We had the chicken and the pork chop entrees and they were fine, but not to recommend. Unfortunately this was nothing like my first experience here.More

You will have to call the restaurant to find out what their policy is. I didn't see a typical patio just a few tables on the sidewalk in front of Bouquet. It's a narrow space too,where the tables are placed.
