My wife and I have been several times, and never have we been disappointed. The appetizers and entrees are flavorful and satisfying. The wait staff is attentive and very helpful, providing full explanations of the dinners and wine suggestions. The entrees are delicious, but you need an appetizer before, as the dinner portions alone will leave you hungry.

In town to see a couple of baseball games and staying at the Marriott in Covington. Checked TA to find a good local restaurant and found this gem. Started with a nice glass of pinot and ordered the Peach Salad -- both were great, especially the salad. Ordered the Roast Duck as an entree and it ranked as one of... More

This was our first visit to Bouquet and based upon our experience, we will definitely return! We started with appetizers for the table. The real HIT was the Pickled Platter. We were a little concerned that it might be boring, but that was the farthest from reality. Each item had a distinctive (and good!) flavor. The pickled fennel was our... More

Excellent charcuterie, dinner, drinks, AND dessert. I met friends at Bouquet...a "half-way" stop between our two cities. Our meal was very relaxed, and our server was very courteous of our lengthy stay, due to long overdue socializing. We appreciated the eclectic dinnerware and locally sourced, house-made menu. Yum!

I consider myself a foodie and was looking for a romantic spot in Cincinnati. I had read a good review of Bouquet and decided to check out, across the river in Covington. Bouquet did not disappoint and far exceeded my expectations. Wow! The food is excellent: creative, fresh and local. The drink and wine choices are superb. The service was... More

Love the local foods on the menu. We ordered the Mother Board, amazing charcuterie, cheese and pickled items. We then had a couple of different items: pork chop, crab cake appetizer and the burger. All so flavorful! Service was very attentive too. We will be back!

Our experience at Bouqet was phenomenal. We made reservations that afternoon after a spur-of-the-moment decision to travel from Central IL to Cincinnati and they not only were able to accommodate us, but were also able to change our reservation time when we realized we'd forgotten about time zone changes! When we arrived, we were seated upstairs in a fairly quiet... More

We ate at Bouquet last night for the first time. The staff is friendly, very efficient; the food is wonderful; the music was a bit too loud, though. I ordered the crab cake and it was very delicious followed by the delectable fried game hen placed on a bed of English peas, sliced mushrooms and pepitas. The menu has interesting... More

We stumbled into this little gem by uber drop off. Full house. Sat at the bar to dine since no reservation. Knowledgeable bar keep. Local fare. Local brew. Farm raised. All the things that make for a great dining experience! The cheese platter was local. And awesome! So I never have eaten paddlefish. Ok. Let do it! Spectacular to say... More
