Great as always!Kaze never fails to put a smile on my face. The food is simple, refined and straightforward. The service was perfect and it's such a great place on many different levels.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Special OccasionMy wife and I had a wonderful time--from the delicately crisp pork slider appetizer, to the shrimp and kobe beef skewers, to the Octopus salad and Ramen bowl. Our server was attentive and helpful without being intrusive, and we enjoyed the complimentary carbonated water.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReally fun time!We shared beef & asparagus yakitori and Kaze salad. Both delicious. I had a beef dish, my husband had chicken so we could enjoy both tastes- really flavorful and just the right portion size. When our server heard us mention that it was our anniversary, she surprised us with an amazing toasted ginger "s'more " for dessert! So nice! We left feeling happy, full but not stuffed. We are so glad Kaze is in the neighborhood ...we definitely will go back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMRecommendGreat food, great service, great atmosphere Second time there. Really enjoyed how they accommodate their guests. Not expensive.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food! Given thatExcellent food! Given that we couldn't get a reservation later than 5:30pm or earlier than 9:30pm, the restaurant was not crowded and there were many empty tables. The back area that they offer as first come first served is actually a great alternative. I would not let the fact that you can't get a reservation deter you.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to hang out. FoodGreat place to hang out. Food is interesting and outstanding. Best new resturant in cincinnati.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first time andThis was our first time and KaZe and we absolutely loved it. The food, service, and atmosphere were fantastic. The OTR sushi roll, and pork sliders were some of the best we've ever had. We were celebrating my birthday, and the staff did a great job of making me feel special with birthday wishes and a complimentary dessert (the salted caramel ice cream- which was delicious!)
Our only complaint was our walk to and from the Washington Park garage- we were approached by people off the street asking for money on both our walk to and from the garage to KaZe. One man actually came into the parking garage, asking for a handout. I think a single security guard patrolling the garage could eliminate this issue.
Thank You- we will be back again!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique experienceDining at KaZe is a unique experience.
It's not your typical Japenese cuisine.
Everything is prepared with just a different
twist. The food is delicious and expertly
prepared. KaZe is a MUST for all foodies!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful restaurantLoved the food and the ambience for a fun night. You don't find food like this in Cincinnati and the service was amazing as well.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA new venue in OTRHave to say the food was delicious and different. There are many different ways to enjoy this very interesting restaurant including the beer garden. It is huge for OTR and will definately be back soon.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThe food was utterly amazing at Kaze. Every dish was vibrant and delicious in a way you forget is possible after going to chain restaurants for a while.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service. ExcellentExcellent service. Excellent food. Excellent atmosphere. Try it. It will not disappoint.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciously ServedTop notch food quality. Everything we had was delicious including the drinks. Service was vigilant maybe due to Tapas style menu. Our server checked in on us every 5 minutes or so, even when we were deep in serious convo. Food came out lightening quick and hot. It was a very enjoyable experience. We would recommend the pork bun appetizers! We ordered more after our main course.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find.Food and service very good- definately would return.

Am I really in Cincinnati? I'm coming back...real soon. Great food. Great service. Cool place. Other than portions being a bit on the small size, there is nothing wrong with this new restaurant in OTR.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur family loves Kaze - greatOur family loves Kaze - great Japanese small bites and more matched by great ambiance and service. Enjoyed the patio during our last visit!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMI just ate there with my 11I just ate there with my 11 year old daughter.

I would recommend this new Gem on vine to everyone.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall its an awesome restaurant.Overall its an awesome restaurant. The service is great and food is delicious but portions are rather small.
My girlfriend and I spent 80 on just food and I was hungry about 2 hours later.... Still though, great for a special occasion or light dinner or sushi.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMKaZe is delicious! The servingKaZe is delicious! The serving staff is awesome and very personable!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Gateway Quarter is fullThe Gateway Quarter is full of great restaurants and KaZe certainly qualifies as one of them. Beautiful and delicious sushi prepared with a modern twist was served by extremely knowledgeable and attentive staff. Their Asian take on the key lime pie we had for desert was creative, refreshing and as lovely tasting as it was to behold. We will definitely return!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperbOur dinner was fantastic. Incredibly fresh fish, great creativity, though traditional fare is available for the less adventurous in your party. The food and service make the slightly elevated noise level a welcome sign of a popular and greatly enjoyed destination.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and amazing service.Amazing food and amazing service. Perfect evening. Pork buns were perfection.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and service.Excellent food and service. Nice ambience. Plus a nice separate bar for an after dinner drink.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFun to try different platesOur waitress basically ordered for us and everything she picked was delicious. They recommend sharing small plates of different courses. The sushi and the skewers were our favorites. We had a great round booth and the ambiance is nice. To go to the women's room, you have to take an elevator downstairs. The elevator is the nicest elevator and it was super fast. We didn't know until our waitress told us, but they ave a bar in the back and a beer garden. It is a pretty cool place! We were there only until 9, although a dj was starting at 10. I would definitely go back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMI really likes this place.I really likes this place. Best sushi and sashimi I've ever had. Drinks were great, outside of some slow service it was an excellent experience!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent addition to OTR and CincyExcellent addition to OTR and Cincy. Very well done!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my first time atThis was my first time at KaZe and I will definitely be going back. I went with a group of 4 and we shared the skewers which were very good. The wagyu was some of the best meat I've had in a long time. Then each of us thoroughly enjoyed our sushi. The place could use some better lighting but then again maybe that's nice if you're on a date. I also loved that they take reservations because many of the places in OTR don't offer that and getting a table can be a nightmare.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMKaZe is now one of the placesKaZe is now one of the places I will go when I want to impress someone or treat someone to something special. Amazing flavors, beautiful presentation, excellent attentive but not overbearing service.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service. Loved theExcellent service. Loved the hanger steak meat was so tender. Our server was excellent and so attentive but not intrusive.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat addition to Cincinnati.Great addition to Cincinnati. Our waiter was wonderful. Only con is it was so loud we could not hear our conversation and were screaming at each other.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat quality, smallish portions.A friend had a craving for sushi, I proposed we both try a place neither of us had been.
Even though we had reservations and arrived 5 mins. early, we found ourselves waiting in the bar until 25 minutes past the reservation time. As we had no plans beyond dinner, it was not so much issue. Just be aware of that should you have post dinner plans such as a show at the Know Theatre (around the corner), they can get busy and behind. Out wait wasn't so bad as the bar area had a great ambiance; decor was spot on.
The real star was the food, ordering 3 full rolls to share. Expertly prepared, quality was GREAT! Only complaint was that there were smaller portions, even at the higher prices, comparatively speaking. Still the value was there.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMNice addition to OTRGreat Service! Our server was helpful and friendly. He did a great job describing the menu and he was very attentive. The interior design has a very upscale and trendy feel. They seem to have achieved a good balance between a "vibrant restaurant scene" and" too loud to hear the person sitting in front of you.” We discovered upon leaving that there’s an outdoor bar and patio that looked very inviting. The food portions are very small. The skewers were especially disappointing. Hardly one bite of food for $4-$7. Everything we ordered was very good, however, we left wishing there was a little more of it.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been to Kaze twiceI have been to Kaze twice in the last 2 weeks and both times everything was amazing! They will be seeing a lot of me there! Amazing sushi and drinks. All the entree selections looked great as well.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMalways great!The menu keeps growing and getting better with every addition. I can't wait until the outdoor bar opens! will be back ASAP3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOff to a Great Start!The foodie vine continues to grow! Great experience out of the gate. Loved the Ramen Tonkotsu and Ebi...girlfriend loved the Pork Buns. Looking forward to trying more items. Welcome to the neighborhood!2/1/2013 12:00:00 AMSecond visit, much betterSecond visit, much better that the first. Seated next to a very noisy table.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
