    My dining companion and I were very impressed with our dinner and service recently. The waiter thoroughly explained each menu item and was knowledgeable about both the food and wine. 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.

    It's hard to find good French food outside of France, and this place is on target. The service was fantastic, with a professional wait staff who can describe all the dishes in detail. Will certainly go back.

    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 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.

    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.

    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.
