“My favorite in Cincinnati”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

John Robert opened this restaurant in order to be a bit less "high end" than his Pigall's restaurant was. While the prices have dropped a bit, I would say the food is still just as wonderful and well prepared as it was in Pigalls. The decor of the restaurant is so inviting and cozy, it's really gorgeous. The service is very attentive and knowledgable (interesting that most of his PIgall's staff followed him here, tells a lot about him). The food is basically French, but not complicated. I would say that the only thing that doesn't always hit the spot with me is the desserts. They are good, but they don't always match the excellence of the main meal. J-R is a huge asset to Cincinnati and I hope he will always stay around.

“Good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

I have eaten here three times and have enjoyed my meal each time. I had eaten four or five times at his old place, Jean-Ro's Bistro, and also liked that. The food in this place is similar, but a little more tricked out. The service has been very good. I'm not so keen on the paintings in the dining room. I liked the decor and high ceilings in the old place better, but I can understand that this time he might have preferred not to do a fake French bistro but something original.

“Authentic French cuisine, at very affordable price !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2013

Jean-Robert is a true French man, who did his cuisine classes in best French resturants. His carte is very fine cuisine, with French specialties (snails, frogs legs, etc.) and more international dishes. Very gourmet. Service friendly and effective. Warm and nice atmosphere.

“Excellent surprise for Cincinnati”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

I generally don't expect excellent continental food in the mid-west, but this is an exception. The service was just what you want, attentive but not overbearing and quite knowledgeable. All the food was excellent. The escargot was excellent. Our group had about five different dinners and all were excellent, even the seafood, which is also unusual for the mid-west. The atmosphere was very pleasant. Typical of french food, it was not too heavy and the various tastes on the plate complemented each other extremely well. Definitely a place to try.
