Diner Reviews
  • "This place continues to be the highlight of Cincinnati dining. I started with the foie gras special and would have gone home happily after just that! My husband's entree was a very delicate halibut in an anise sauce. We ended our meal with a duo of chocolate mousses and a hazelnut tart. Superlative service and cozy booth contributed to making this a truly memorable birthday evening!"

  • "Took my in-laws there for my m-i-l's 70th birthday, as well as my two kids (12 and 14). Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the food tremendously. We all had different appetizers and entrees so we all got to taste a bit of everything. Fantastic food: delicious, creative, unusual without being weird, beautiful presentation. Desserts were a treat too. Highly recommend for every day dining as well as special occasion. Service was really great too. We drink beer, not wine, so can't comment on wine list but the beer choices were varied and top-notch (not just a bunch of IPA's like you find everywhere else lately). Prices are not outlandish, especially given the quality of the experience."

  • "JR's Table continues to be the best restaurant in Cincinnati. Since his days at the Maisonette, Jean-Robert has always had this reputation as the special occasion destination, but you needn't wait for that to enjoy Table. This isn't a once-a-year restaurant, but rather the kind of place that I choose to dine for lunch or dinner as often as I can. The menu is diverse. The wine list is incredible. The service is impeccable. The ambience is beyond compare. Reserve your "Table" today!"

  • "On our mini-honeymoon, we decided to treat ourselves to Jean-Robert's. Based on the reviews & credentials of the chef, I was really disappointed with what we experienced. We started with a bottle of wine, which was probably the best thing that we had. As an appetizer we ordered the duck macaroni and cheese, which was cold when served & in need of salt and pepper; something I would never expect from a restaurant of this caliber. The meal continued in the same way through entrees (fish) & dessert (creme brûlée). All of the dishes were just ok. Our server was friendly & knowledgeable, but our actually service was mediocre. Our water glasses remained empty & the background noise was comprised of staff swearing & talking about getting f*ed up."

  • "Outstanding food enhanced by attentive but unobtrusive service. The flavor combinations remain inventive - cherries and beef, red grapes and lobster. I have the sense that the food is lighter, with sauces that are more broth-like than creamy. Well suited to summer."

  • "I love the comfort of table. One of the few places in which you can actually hold a conversation. The lunch menu is a perfect combination of old and modern bistro , with steak tartar , liver, and skate vs a big juicy hamburger. I can't get enuf of this menu. I want to try everything. It has made me decide to bring back the two hour lunch.. Meet, linger, have a glass of wine and order a large midday meal. The perfect place for business or friends."

  • "We were welcomed at the door by the chef. From that point on we were treated to exemplary service. Our waiter was fully knowledgeable about the wine list as well as the menu. Following his suggestion I ordered the skate which was perfectly prepared and presented. This restaurant is a bit pricey but well worth it. A great place for a special evening."

  • "I am familiar with Jean-Robert's skills from Maisonette and was dying to try this restaurant. We had the foie gras appetizer, skate fish and halibut entrees and stayed after for a drink at the bar, just to bask a bit in our enjoyment. The food is world class, the service efficient and professional and the overall experience was outstanding. I would recommend Jean-Robert's Table to anyone for any occasion"

  • "My sife had a delicious halibut seafood dish, and my filet mignon with its red wine (demi) sauce was wonderful! The wine and dessert were amazing, also!"

  • "We dined here for our anniversary and have to say the food was very good; a little lacking in salt / seasoning, but aside from that the food was spot on. We enjoyed a number of the specials and the chocolate tart was amazing. The best thing about this place though was the service; our waiter was fantastic; not only did he know the menu, but knew the wines and what paired with which dish. Go for the food, but definitely take advantage of the service; you don't see quality servers like we had in many restaurants any more."

  • "We recently dined at Jean-Robert's table and were very disappointed in the experience overall. The food was good but the waiter was dreadful - sloppy looking, inattentive and not well informed about the menu. In fact, he mispronounced several of the dishes. And we literally had to flag him down several times once he finally got food to the table for things like silverware and a second glass of wine. We have always had such lovely experiences at Jean Robert's restaurants and one of the hallmarks was a wait staff that was pleasant and attentive but not fawning. This was quite the opposite. Not sure we will go there again."

  • "I went to dinner with three other foodies and, as predicted Jean Robert's did not disappoint. The food at his restaurants over the years has always been fabulous. We are lucky to have his culinary influence in Cincinnati!"

  • "We fell in love with this place our first visit 2 months ago so we thought we would give it another try. We had early reservations so the usual crowd was light. That evening their list of off menu items rivaled their regular menu. The waiter explained each in great detail. As we settled into a glass of wine we could not help but notice the music, it was loud. It did detract from the otherwise great ambience of the place. We started with Foie Gras and Shrimp Cole Slaw off menu appetizers. Unfortunately the splendid flavors where overwhelmed by a generous amount of salt. Our entree's of Halibut for my wife and a nice small filet for me did not disappoint. Yes, we will be back the flavors are just to good to pass up."

  • "Jean-Robert continues to create wonderful dishes and the added French music this evening made for a perfect dining experience!"

  • "And the hamburger is still amazing. Despite the other mouthwatering dishes, the hamburger remains special. Went two nights in a row just to get the burger a second time."

  • "As a non-native Cincinnatian, I've always heard how great Chef Robert was, but honestly, I didn't believe the hype... until now! I typically am a little underwhelmed by French cuisine but this dining experience was phenomenal! Service was spectacular as well! The only part of this restaurant that needs improvement (in my opinion) is the atmosphere/decor, it could use some updating. A pleasant treat to the end of the meal, was that as we were walking out of the restaurant, Chef Robert followed us out and thanked us for dining with him... which was a wonderful touch and added that last "smile" to a great nite."

  • "While there are many trendy locations that might try to draw you for a night out, Jean-Robert hits a home run with the quality of food and service - every time. We took an out of town guest here for dinner, as her favorite cuisine is French. All of us had a wonderful evening, with excellent pairings of wine."

  • "The Table is one of my favorite restaurants in Cincinnati One where you can feel the vibrancy of downtown but yet get a reservation and have a nice conversation where you can actually hear each other speak. I have never had anything but excellent food and service at The Table and highly recommend it to my friends."

  • "Jean Robert never gets himself in a rut. His varied bistro menu, combined with excellent specials, keeps it interesting no matter how many times you visit. He never lets his standards slip, either. I've never experienced -- and never heard of anyone else experiencing -- a less than first-rate meal there. Of course, you get what you pay for -- so our last dinner for three came out at $185, not counting tip or valet fee. And worth every buck. (Much wine, of course.) One thing I especially treasure about this restaurant is its expertise with seafood. In a midwestern city like Cincinnati, overcooked seafood -- especially fish -- is an everyday hazard. Not at The Table. Jamais! We had salmon, sole and soft-shell crab. All heavenly. "
