  • Best Restaurant Meal in Decades
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/25/2014
    I've lived in many different places in the US and Europe and had many a restaurant experience. I've also managed a four diamond restaurant in my time. I've had some really memorable meals but this one took the cake. More often than not, I prefer to stay at home and cook because I'm more satisfied with the food. I couldn't not have been more pleased with dinner at JR's Table. The lobster appetizer was a lesson in layered flavors and textures. The Venison loin was done perfectly and spectactularly finished with flavors of cranberry and plum. The wine list is amazing. Our waiter new exactly what he was doing and new the menu and drinks backwards and forward. And Jeannie is the best bartender around! Loved it Jean-Robert!

    We were a group of 5 people for a birthday celebration. Our server, Jason, was polite, friendly and very knowledgeable including the many specials of the day. He knew the wine list well, too. The food was, as always, superb. Seafood, artic chard and skate were soft and delicious. Filet mignon melted in your mouth. They came with excellent sauces. Two of us took the 4 course specialand they were very peased with it. Presentation was excellent. Thank you for a nice evening.

  • Outstanding Experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 11/22/2014
    I took my wife here this past Saturday night for her birthday and it could not have been a better choice. The waiter was incredibly knowledgable and answered all my wife's questions regarding the dishes (she's a vegetarian and allergic to mushrooms). He made sure to ask if we were heading to a show or other event that evening (we were) so he could alert the kitchen to make sure we were out on time and didn't miss the show. The food was impeccable and both my wife and I walked away extremely satisfied. It could not have been a better experience. It might be on the pricey side for just a regular night out, but for special occasions or if you just want to impress someone you can't go wrong with this restaurant.

    Great cocktails & a well-balanced appetizer (we had fall ravioli). We wanted some French comfort food & so we selected the burger & frites (just ok, frites were limp & soggy) & I had the croque Monsieur (which I've had in numerous restaurants across the globe) & it was a greasy unfavorable mess & the accompanying chicken liver was a piece of rubber. If they can't perfect basic French staples, they need to be removed from the menu.

We both felt so cared by all the staff including the hostess and this made our very first visit to the restaurant memorable with the hope to return again soon.

    Lunch at Jean-Robert's Table was outstanding . Hands down, the best mushroom soup I have ever tasted. The bread is perfect, the salad delicious. The service was good and he was there when we needed him but he did not hover over the table. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great lunch.

    My wife an I often go to J-R's Table for lunch for the amazing French lunch tray. We brought a party of 8 for dinner last Saturday. All I can say is "wow". The food was excellent. The service was freakishly good. Their wine list is full of good values. We had a wonderful time and kept wondering why it has been so long since we came for dinner. Bravo.

    Dine out a lot in Cincinnati and keep trying to like this place but the hype just doesn't live up to the quality. At least a 6 or 7 better options in town. Unfortunately this time not only was the food mediocre but the service was very lackluster. After being seated - took 10 minutes for waiter to finally stop by. Then when brining the appetizer he spilled a water glass. Worked hard to clean it up but never apologized - when asked by a co-worker if she could help he simply complained about the awful night he was having - he seemed much more concerned about his bad night then my wet shirt.

    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.

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.

    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!
