Diner Reviews
  • "Everything tasted great. Been here a number of times and never had something I didn't like"

  • "I brought my sister to Bouquet for a birthday dinner. She thoroughly enjoyed her entire experience. She commented that the food was the best she had tasted in a very long time. The food, wine, dessert and service was exceptional. Definitely recommend Bouquet for fine dining."

  • "Hubby and I were looking for a place to 'celebrate' our first weekend night as empty nesters. I kept hearing Bouquet was good, but I had no idea how good. We had early reservations (6pm) because we were also seeing a show. When we arrive the place was half empty and we were seated right away. Our server (female - sorry I forgot your name) was fantastic! She explained the whole menu and gave us excellent recommendations. I told her I would love to try the gespacho, but didn't want a whole bowl, so she brought me a cup - on the house - AMAZING - fresh, flavorful and light. Also notable were the VERY fresh vegetables with every course and the miso ginger sauce with the halibut. Hubby loved his pork chop as well. Highly Recommend."

  • "We were on our way to Carnegie to see Sweeney Todd - a co-worker told me about Bouquet so we made a reservation....and are we soooo glad we did. One of our favorites in years! We will be regulars from here on out! Our server was awesome....introduced us to an amazing wine ... dinner was presented beautifully ... and beyond delicious. Ambience was delightful. Quite, intimate and pure delight."

  • "I really enjoy dining at Bouquet. The menu changes seasonally and their specials are unlike any you find in the city. I had the squash blossoms and Alaskan halibut. Both were incredibly tasty and flavorful. I greatly appreciate the flavor profiles at Bouquet and think the chef has a great knack for bringing out the best in each dish's natural flavors."

  • "A great dining experience. The friendly service and excellent food is a winning combination."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "The food and service at Bouquet are both top notch. The menu is mostly locally-sourced and has a nice selection of entrees, including a vegetarian tofu dish that is very flavorful. The wine list is excellent and there is a respectable craft beer selection as well. Service is friendly and attentive."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "This restaurant is great.. Great food and very consistent. I have eaten there 4 times and have had something different each time. Everything is prepared to perfection and the wait staff is excellent! I will continue to dine there as long as my travels take me through that town."

  • "Our dining experience at Bouquet was wonderful! The cheese plate was the perfect starter - giving us time to enjoy nibbling and great cocktails. The tomato salad was perfection, pairing local fresh cherry tomatoes with shaved Parmesan and fruit. We could have eaten several each! The main courses were divine, though one steak was undercooked. No problem at all! It was re-done and came out perfectly cooked. And the chef "made good" on the kitchen's gaffe. We definitely recommend Bouquet for any occasion or no occasion at all. It is our favorite of all of the Mainstrasse restaurants - hands down!!!"

  • "Wonderful dinner of local fresh food! We had chicken and pork chops. The sauces on each made them amazing. A nice bottle of wine and it was a perfect date night."

  • "We dined at Bouquet with our son & his fiancé celebrating their engagement. The atmosphere was great, the food was wonderful and our server very attentive. Would highly recommend it."

  • "We have been here before. The food is great and the service is special. I highly recommend for someone seeking a great time in Northern Kentucky. Chef Stephen Williams is one of top chefs in this area."

  • "The food here is amazing. We are big foodies and I absolutely love this restaurant. What a great find!! One of the small plates I had used squash blossoms with amaranth flower; creative and delicious! A true dining experience."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I had dined at Bouquet previously and was impressed but the last visit wasn't so stellar. Service was a bit slow and unfortunately our entrees were not very good. I had the pork chop and my husband had the duck - mine was overcooked and his was under-cooked. The salads were definitely the standouts - a squash blossom special and the heirloom tomato, both were great. The cheese plate with two meats was pretty expensive with generic offerings for the price. The bread pudding as also average and the apricot sauce tasted like baby food! The ambiance is nice but we did feel a bit neglected on the service front and there was no one else upstairs. For the price you pay, I expect a little more from a dining experience so not sure if we'll be back."

  • "My wife and I have been wanting to visit Bouquet since they opened and this past weekend we finally had our date night plans come together. When we arrived, Sybilka showed us to our table and for the rest of the evening she made our evening perfect! Having heard so much about the food, we decided to not open our menus and instead leave the course selections to Sybilka. It was amazing! just the few minutes we had spoken it seemed she knew our style and palate perfectly. The food was amazing and perfectly prepared, but the service was above and beyond. A perfect balance of checking on our needs and giving us time to talk (it was date night after all). We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The restaurant was very nice and we had a very good time. Our service was very good. The food was good but it is very expensive for what you get. The cheese plate that I ordered included 6 bite size pieces of cheese, 6 crackers, 1/4 c of pistachio relish and a smear of seasonal jam. Again, everything tasted great but it was not worth the $15 price. IF I recommend the restaurant to anyone I will make sure to tell them that it is good but very over priced."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This restaurant is a hidden little gem with excellent food a service. I have been there 3 times now and intend on going back again when I next visit this city."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Bouquet. I love the atmosphere on Main Street; the outdoor dining setting is really nice. The food was good, but in my opinion the entrees could have used more seasoning and maybe a sauce - our two entrees were both missing something. Our soups and salads were quite good. We did not have dessert, although the dessert menu was appealing. We will likely dine here again, but I will opt for an appetizer instead of an entree."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Our dinner was exceptionally good and the service was outstanding. The halibut and duck were delicious along with the kale salad which was split for us. The menu was varied and interesting. We will definitely dine here again."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Out entrees were perfect. I had the pork, but prepared like their chicken. My wife had the duck. The drinks were reasonably priced and delicious as well."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Superb restaurant. Josh is an exceptional waiter and treated us extremely well."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "This place is outstanding, if food and service excellence top your dining priorities. I selected the heralded halibut, and it equaled every laudatory comment. The stunner was the chicken, sampled from my friend's entree selection. I previously avoided this fowl, because of a (well-founded) knowledge that chicken is, in most instances, ordinary. Not so at Bouquet; I'd be hard-pressed to say which entree was superior. The service was engaging and friendly---they went the second mile to assure an enjoyable dining experience. It's the perfect special occasion location---or if you're simply in the mood to be wowed by splendid flavors and creativity."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We arrived sitting at a nice table for two located near the bar. That turned out to be our first mistake as as the bar filled in it got a bit crowed and noisy. The second issue was the web site wine list and the list presented were so very different. When I inquired of the difference our waiter/bartender/manager informed my wife and I that the list changed all the time and they never had more than 2 to 4 bottles of any wine listed at any time. This seemed strange to me as this was supposed to be a Wine Spectator award winner. For me this failed as the waiter nearly filled my wine to the top of the glass in an effort to empty the bottle and turn the table. When it came to the meal it was over priced in relation to what was received."

  • "This is one of the best restaurants in the Tri State area. Very nice looking interior and the food is inventive and very tasty. Our server Sybilka was excellent and of great assistance in describing dishes etc. We had met her once before and she remembered us. Worth a trip to Covington from Cincinnati to taste this excellent restaurant."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Had a great meal, had very good service, price was reasonable for the quality food and service provided. Would recommend reservations at all times....we were dining on a Tuesday night and it was very busy."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "The cheese & charcuterie was amazing and would highly recommend dessert! Overall it was great but our burger was dry and didn't have much flavor besides the homemade mustard & pickle."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Bouquet is an excellent restaurant - one of the very best in the greater Cincinnati metro area. The halibut was one of the best preparations I have ever had. It is not to be missed. The restaurant has clearly attracted a loyal following. The bar was jumping, and all the tables were full. I've already been back once and plan to go again."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "The dinner and service was outstanding. Really enjoyed. If i had a negative comment, it would have been the noise level. A bit too noisy--had difficulty conversing. The restaurant was full, however. Could stand some of the ceiling baffles that i've seen in other higher end restaurants."
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "I've eaten here a few times and always before our only complaint was the noise level. This time we were able to talk easily and the place didn't seem as noisy, even though it was busy. I'm not sure what the difference was. As always, the food was excellent and the service very pleasant."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Highly recommended by friends. Exceeded expectations. Will definitely return."
