    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!

  • A Cincinnati MUST DO

    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.

    We love the restaurant but this time the food was not as good. I ordered the hamburger and the sauce that is my favorite was way too spicy! We chose a bottle of the house red and it had a bit of a kick. A little disappointing! The fois gras hot appetizer was very overpriced at $23. We will be back, however, we were not so happy with our meal overall! Usually it's a 10!

    JtrooVIP
    Dined on 8/29/2014
    Had our annivesary dinner here. We had to wait for our table at 8pm but it wasn't too long. Started out with some cocktails that were pretty good. The bread at the table was delicious and nicely grilled. We had the rabbit duo and beet salad special and for entrees, the skate wing and lamb chops special. It was all delicious but the lamb chops were pretty pricey for the small portion. We had the chocolate macadamia tart for dessert. Service was spot on. It was pretty hopping still when we left. Might be back.

    The overall experience was very positive. The waiter made a couple of minor mistakes -- he explained the menu and specials at great length but then hurried off without taking our drink orders, so we had to wave our arms to attract someone's attention. When my lamb chops arrived, they were simply too meaty to cut without a steak knife -- but again, he had hurried off without considering that, so I had to wave my arms to attract someone's attention. But other than that, the food was excellent, the service smooth. We would certainly go back.

    My wife and I were referred to this restaurant by a friend, and he raved about it. He was spot on. The ambiance was relaxed and very friendly, the entire service and wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was spectacular! We shared a delicate soft shell crab, my wife had scallops, and I had the rack of lamb. We both agreed it was the best meal we have had in a long time. Our taste buds were in ecstasy with every bite. We recommend it wholeheartedly. You will not be disappointed.

    Great French Fare, served by an impeccable wait staff in a room that is one step up from a Dennys. Silly booths that seat 4 very slim to be avoided at all costs. Surely he can find a better space...and leave behind the bird-people art as well.

    This is a charming, fun restaurant with thoughtful service and wonderful food. The crowd at the bar is delightful, and we noticed many "regulars," not only at the bar but in the restaurant, a good sign in our opinion. They do not rush you at all, but invite you to linger and take your time. The escargot appetizer and our duck and halibut entrees were nearly perfect. My husband and I stayed at 21c downtown, and this is an easy 3-min. walk.

    My wife and I enjoyed our time at Jean-Robert's. The restaurant is very well laid out with the seating being private, yet you are able to enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant. The restaurant has beautiful brickwork and interesting local art. The menu was varied with many items I had never seen before, such as the skate; and there were many specials (nine), all of which looked interesting. My wife and I both enjoyed our meals, each of which were cooked to perfection. Further, the wine list had a wonderful slection. I would reccomend Jean-Robert's Table to anyone looking for a good time and a great meal.

    My brother from Sonoma County, Calif., had heard me talk about Cincinnati's Jean-Robert's Table so much that he took us there to cap off a weeklong visit. He was impressed with the food, service and the affordability of the meal (these were not Wine Country or San Francisco prices, he remarked). The Vol au Vent of Lobster starter was terrific and the duck breast was perfectly cooked and just the right portion. My brother and daughter said they'd never had a better creme brulee.

I imagine the kitchen would have preferred otherwise, but they made it work for us and our evening was delightful. Service was impeccable. Of course, every course was a standout--2, 3, or 4.
