Diner Reviews
  • "We love dining at Bouquet - it's casual-chique and cozy atmosphere make it a great date night! The seasonal menu has selections that are delicously unique and prepared to perfection. Saturday night, we had the short ribs and the lamb which were both outstanding! The wine selection is one of the best in the area and the servers are more than happy to suggest parings that compliment anything on the menu. Our server was friendly, very knowledgeable and timed our courses perfectly for a nice relaxing evening. If you're looking for a great place to take someone to dinner, this is it!!"

  • "This is a great restaurant--wonderful food, and a good value for the money. Wine pours by the glass were reasonably-priced and sized. I would have preferred not to sit in the back of the restaurant--next time I will specify. I would definitely return."

  • "Always a great meal, I've never had a dish that I didn't like. The service is always great. Atmosphere is inviting. Always consistent, I highly recommend to my friends!"

  • "Our second time at Bouquet was almost as good as the first - which is saying a lot as it was darn near perfect the first time. The bistro steak is still one of the most flavorful I've ever had. The salmon was a little underdone, but that may have been us just misunderstanding "medium" for fish. Service was again extraordinary, the salmon was redone as unobtrusively and quickly as you could ever expect. Bouquet has one of my favorite wine lists in Cincinnati. Not extensive in each country or grape category, but everything is there, including reasonably priced alternatives. We will definitely be back."

  • "Bouquet's emphasis on fresh, seasonal, locally sourced ingredients is apparent and the results delight. Terrific service, a lovely ambience and charming location in Main Strasse Village combine with wonderfully executed food to create a thoroughly enjoyable dining experience. This was my third trip and I will be back."

  • "This was our first visit to Bouquet. Even though we were almost an hour early for our reservation, we were promptly seated. Our server, Dustin, took the time to answer all of our questions and made several excellent recommendations. For example, we were allowed to replace the tofu in one entrée with the king salmon. The presentation and quality of the food more than lived up to the description on the menu. This is one spot that we will definitely return too."

  • "You can never miss when you eat here. The menu changes seasonally and every dish is filled with fresh flavors and is also beautifully presented. The beet salad this time was over the top with the combination of flavors. This is one of the top places in the Cincinnati area. Don't miss it."

  • "Once again we had a wonderful meal and experience at Bouquet. When we arrived, we were told that our table was on the 2nd floor of the building. I had heard that the restaurant was expanding, and have recently finished out the second floor. I was impressed, the space is broken-up in three large comphortable dining areas with ample circulation for the servers. One of the spaces can be closed to provide a large private dining room. The 2nd floor space also includes a bar and restrooms, enabling the entire 2nd floor as a viable private party / event space."

  • "As Always, the meal was fantastic and well thought out. perfectly cooked steak, the sauces were unique, and the dessert one of a kind. Cardamom ice cream. yum."

  • "My wife and I had wanted to try Bouquet for quite a while and felt cheated that we had not gone sooner. Great food, ambiance and service, a great combination. Its more of a dining experience than going out to dinner."

  • "The food and wine list at Bouquet are always impressive. I would definitely say it is one of the best little restaurants in Covington!"
    Dined on 3/19/2014
  • "I wouldn't have known of Bouquet if it weren't for a friend. We were seated on the 2nd floor. I thought the atmosphere was warm and welcoming. The food including dessert was awesome!!!!!!!! Their prices were very affordable for fine dining. We couldn't have asked for better service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "Bouquet went beyond our expectations. Amazing food and wine, and we were especially wowed by the many vegetarian and vegan options ON THE MENU! We didn't even have to ask to have something "special" for our dietary needs. The waitress was attentive but not overly attentive. The dining room was clean, comfortable and somewhat quiet. The mood was romantic with several couples dining. We can't wait to return!"

  • "We have been to Bouquet several times and are always amazed at how delicious the food is. I am a pretty picky eater but try new things here and think out of the box. The chef always does a perfect combination of food. Wish I could eat here everyday! We love having date night here! Definitely not kid friendly, but since it's for our date night we are good with that."

  • "We moved from Boston and have been trying every restaurant in the area (except for chains). Bouquet is at the top. The food is fresh and incredibly flavorful, their ambiance warm, welcoming, upscale and their service amazing. We had the Bistro steak (you must get!) the Marksby pork chop and the rib eye. The sauces and accompaniments were ingenious and enhanced rather than overpowered the main part of the dishes. They have a very nice wine list, full bar and prepare their drinks with a fantastic eye for detail. We ordered a boxcar and it included a ribbon of crisp candied orange peel on top, such a nice touch. They even have gluten free choices that amaze! They will certainly be our place to go for a wonderful experience!"

  • "A big surprise for my wife... for her birthday. Told her we were going to another establishment, but when we walked up to Bouquet, she was excited. We came here the first week they opened several years ago and I always wanted to come back. The service was outstanding and food was as well. Look forward to spring to eat outside again!"

  • "Brick walls, great wine list, interesting flavors in both the salads and the entrees. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and attentive. We will definitely go back."

  • "Two dudes at the bar watching U-tube loud enough so everyone in the restaurant could hear it. In addition to that they were hitting on the servers. Very unprofessional setting. The server seemed preoccupied."

  • "Our Broadway Series group came here before our last show. We ate in the newly opened upstairs dining room. Overall it was a very nice time. Our server was prompt and very friendly. We let them know beforehand that we had a show so they were quick enough with the food to get us out on time, but not so quick that we felt rushed. Our dinner selections ranged from fish to steak to chicken to vegetarian. All of us gave our entrees a thumbs up. The same can be said for the cheese plate and the sweet potato flat bread we had for appetizers. The only critical comment was that the chicken could have been a bit more moist. It was not dry, just not real juicy. We would definitely come back here again."

  • "Night out at Bouquet was great: Great food, wine, service. Started with cheese plate with prosciutto, tasted good but very small for $21. Followed with salads which were nice. Wine was reasonably priced, our waitress even brought out a sample to help us choose. The grouper was the night's special, they were kind enough to split it on two plates for us. Scrumptious! Dessert was okay to finish the evening. Overall great date night, total bill for two including wine and a cocktail was $130. Enjoy!"

  • "This place is a GEM for sure. Every chance we get to eat here, we are knocked off of our feet. We went for a Birthday celebration on this particular occasion, excellent all around. Staff is great, knowledgable, and overly friendly. If you haven't been to Bouquet you must make the time, they aim to impress! Tuesday night also happened to be half price bottles on a select wine list, paired with an award winning cheese plate, count me in. Cannot wait for the weather to break and a chance to gaze at the stars from their soon to be opened patio!"

  • "My wife and I recently dined at Bouquet. It's right next to another of our favorite stops - Otto's - another great restaurant. Still our first time experience to Bouquet was an astonishing dining experience. From appetizer through to main course each was outstanding in it's presentation and taste. I can't wait till we can get back! Two thumbs way up!"

  • "From the moment we walked in, we were well tended. Their capable server paired our delicious courses with delightfully matched wines, and the combination of ambiance and attentiveness made the evening very special. Their balance of sweet and savory flavors, and inventive pickling, is telling of a thoughtful kitchen crew."

  • "Quaint surroundings, easy to get to and park! Nice experience with the wait staff and their promptness. Menu was varied and priced just right for what you get. Good wine selection. Order dessert, you wont be disappointed! All in all a great time in a great location! Will be back!"

  • "We have been to Bouquet several times but we were accompanied this time by a couple who had never been. They were quite impressed as were we. Our table was located as requested in the reservation. Sybilka was a wonderful server and did a great job. The special this night was grouper and it was excellent. We will certainly be back."

  • "We were really looking forward to dinner at bouquet and we were so disappointed. The waiter was the rudest waiter I have ever encountered. The food was mediocre at best. we came with 2 vegans in our party and although the menu specifically states they gladly accommodate for vegans ans vegetarians they did not. They presented a plate with 2 pieces of asparagus chopped up and a redskin potato that was quartered with some chunks of garlic as a meal.. Absolutely terrible. I do not recommend this restaurant!"

  • "We braved the cold on Friday night, and made our way to Bouquet in Covington. While the weather was downright frigid outside, the restaurant was warm, the food was hot, the wait staff was so helpful and on top of all of the details. We had a wonderful, relaxing, and memorable evening. We consistently return to Bouquet for the food and the service. The Chef and Hostess work so well together, and they run a very organized establishment...the food is inventive and familiar, the wine list is always being updated with something new to try, the wait staff is extremely knowledgeable / helpful / and not on top of you. I find the restaurant to be very comfortable, welcoming, maintains a low noise level and is aesthetically pleasing."

  • "I loved the feel of the place, it was a snowy night but folks kept coming. The menu was a little disappointing. I expected a few more selections. My husband was disappointed that scallops or halibut were not on the menu. He opted for a strip steak which was just ok. I had the salmon and it was good but nothing exciting in the execution or presentation. I did enjoy the beet salad and the presentation was lovely. My husband had the crab cake appetizer and said it was very good. The creme brulee was wonderful and hubby loved the wine, a malbec."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "My wife and I both had fish. I had the salmon and she had the slide fish (a mild white fish) both with the same garnish. The dishes were fantastic, with our fish moist and flaky. The flavors of the rice and garnish paired great and were flavorful."

  • "We've been here three times now and are planning our fourth. The food is consistently good and we've gotten high quality service. It's a solid pick for a night out."

  • "Small menu, but the plus to this is everything is so fresh and tasty! Excellent use of fresh local produce and meats. I have eaten here several times and it's always great and consistent. Great wine list and a few fun bar drinks as well. Our waitress was excellent making some great suggestions. We started with a few appetizers to share for the table, this is a must for a great sampling! I loved the scallops hopefully those stay on the menu, so yummy. We finished with a few excellent desserts then a short walk to a near by Burbon bar. Charming location for a night out."

  • "Had 5pm reservations for six, sat down promptly, and started on hors doerves and drinks. Quiet atmosphere picked up around 6pm, when dinner was in full swing. Each guest had something different, and the Somm was able to find a bottle for us to share that had just been removed from the list. By the time we we leaving, bar and room were full, bustling, and vibrant. Second time here for us, third is in order."
