    My wife and I had loved Pigalle's and JeanRobert's Vietnamese restaurant in Covington and considered them the best in the Cincinnati area. We now regard "Table" as following in that tradition - outstanding food, wine and service in nice ambience. Our server Christopher was very good.

    My husband and I have eaten at Table a few times now and have never been disappointed! The food is absolutely delicious and always perfectly executed. The mac and cheese is addictive. The service is impeccable and the staff is knowledgeable and very accommodating. We have made reservations a couple of times, but we have also popped in without a reservation and have been able to dine at one of the high top tables in the bar. The service was still exceptional.

    I can't believe I waited this long to come to Jean Roberts table. Loved the atmosphere! The food was amazing, I had the feature foie gras and the salmon wrapped in bacon. My husband had the surf and turf tartar and the 3 little pigs. All were very creative dishes that I have not had before. Loved this restaurant enough to book another reservation already.

    Years ago, I had the great good fortune of dining at both the Maisonette and Pigall's. This past weekend we were visiting Cincinnati, and wanted to try Jean-Robert's current restaurant. Once again, he has created a delightful dining experience. Every aspect of the evening was flawless: a warm & cordial welcome; pleasant, knowledgeable wait staff; outstanding food paired with wonderful wines. We were never rushed, and the goodbyes felt like we were leaving the home of a friend rather than a commercial establishment. We all agreed the evening could not have been better.

    JR's is always reliable but not as imaginative as many of the similar (upscale) restaurants downtown. Our selections had perhaps one too many elements. Simplicity + elegance + innovation is a better combination.

    We really enjoyed Jean-Robert's Table. Even though we came with two kids, picky eaters, a vegetarian-we were all thrilled. There was a trip playing French music, which was fantastic and our server was amazing. Only complaint is that the hostess wasn't very warm or welcoming, at all.

    We are never dissapointed when I go to the Table. For the second time I had the Cincinnati Reds' salad, my husband the seared foie gras, Then I had the vol au vent (to die for), my husband the duck and our friends had the scallops and the lamb. The plates were all cleaned out and we even kept room for dessert. The duo of chocolate mousse is supreme. Our waiter was as usual very knowledgeable, attentive but not overwhelming. Another homerun! Thanks JR and your team

    We had twelve people on a Wed evening. Everything was perfect -- the server, the food, the wine and Jean Robert came out and spoke to us. The food was superb and we will be back hopefully sooner vs. later. Don't save it for a special occasion. It was not overly pricey but the flavor of the different foods was great.

    first time visiting Cincinnati and found Jean Roberts to be a great find. very accomodating as I added 2 to teh party at the last second. Food and service was fantastic. absolutely loved the specials they offered, although I wished they didnt run out of the soft shell crab. all the choices were wonderful. our server was very attentive and provided great guidance to us. A great place to visit and enjoy.

    What a delight to have Jean Robert in Cincinnati! Last Friday we had Fois Gras followed by soft shell crabs. The fois gras was amazing. Delicious with many layered complex and complimentary flavors. The crab was an entirely different melody and equally tasty. The wine list is interesting and our pinot noir was an enhancement to the evening.

    My sister and I had dinner before going to a play. We were asked if we were going to a show and they made sure our dinner was timely. We were not rushed to leave (unlike another restaurant downtown). The food and wine were fantastic, I had the softshell crab, it was perfect! Our server was also excellent.

    One of my friends was moving and I was looking for a special place for a going away lunch that had delicious food and a great atmosphere. We were not disappointed. The food was wonderful, and I loved the fact the tables had linen tablecloths and napkins - for lunch! The decor was lovely with interesting artwork on the walls. The restaurant was full for lunch (on a Wednesday) but was not noisy at all. I will most certainly be back!

    For starters our table enjoyed the special Cincinnati Reds Lobster Salad - all red ingredients - lobster, radish, lettuce, cabbage - with a light dressing. Light and tasty. Also enjoyed the mussels 3 ways and traditional escargot. Did not disappoint, classic preparation. But the first course show stopper was the bread!!! Light, crunchy, chewy. Worth the visit alone and makes me pity the low carb, gluten free dieters out there. Main courses were skate, duck, and scallops. Nothing was missed in these preparations as flavors built upon one another in a subtle and complimentary way. The staff was very generous with their time, nothing rushed, and helpful with excellent wine pairings. Worth going to Cincinnati for.

    Every visit to JR's Table is delightful and tasty. The number of seasonal specials that he adds to the regular menu always blows my mind - making each visit unique. The service and staples such as the wine list and hot crusty bread never disappoint. A visit from the chef is also so nice and unexpected. Love this restaurant.

    Many excellent dishes on the menu. Exceptional starters, and a variety of main dishes, some of which will interest almost anyone. Several specials, als with enough variety to appeal to varied tastes. Many dishes using top-end ingredients. Excellent, if somewhat esoteric, wine list. It pays to ask questions of the servers, who know the menu and wine list very well. The ambiance is somewhat more casual and crowded than I regard as ideal. I know the neighborhood well and feel comfortable there, but a first-timer might not.
