We ate at Rhapsody over the weekend and weren't disappointed. The chef is doing a great job changing up the menu each season and offering a lovely selection of nightly specials. We enjoyed a vegetable lasagna appetizer. The only comment here is that you need more than the two crostini's they served it with. For entrees we had the King... More

Fun restaurant with students doing cooking and service. The prof/chef me thinks has a watchful eye on the future chefs. We found the experience to be very pleasant. Our waiter studying HR was delightful and the food was delicious. We had the scallop dinner. A little pricey but the culinary experience was worth the cost. Complex mix of flavor and... More

Went with family and service was good. We ordered sandwiches (mine was burned) but everyone else in the group was pleased with food. I ordered a specialty drink and it was delicious! Would order again. Went on Thursday and it was pub fare, heard the food is more gourmet on weekends.

This restaurant has as its chefs, culinary students...what a great idea!! And, they are very good! My friend and I stopped by just for dessert, sharing the Death by Chocolate, but then decided we would return the following evening for dinner. The brisket was tender and the scallops were tasty. Then dessert...Blueberry Puff with Vanilla ice cream and Grand Marnier... More

We visited Rhapsody over Memorial Day weekend. The food was outstanding and the ambience perfect. I highly recommend this delightful gem of a restaurant in Nelsonville, Ohio. Rhapsody is the training restaurant for future Chefs who attend the Culinary School at Hocking College. Chef Alfonso and staff will treat you right.

We had the pleasure of dining here and let me just say it was fabulous. We had the brisket sliders which was almost a meal in itself , the best burger ever and very tasty chicken primavera and delectable cream brûlée. I would recommend this place to all my friends passing thru that area.

Outstanding food and service. Hard to believe this is also a student learning lab for Hocking College.

Just a wonderful restaurant affiliated with Hocking College. A good keyboard musician entertained while we enjoyed dinner. The wine list had a good selection and was well priced. Soup of the day--Chicken and lime-- was excellent. The calamari were succulent, perfectly cooked. The burger was juicy and cooked to order. The wait staff was very attentive. A very wonderful experience... More
