Diner Reviews
  • "We have dined at RMT several times, and always enj coming back. The food, as usual, was great. Service was decently paced, given we were in no hurry. It was a fabulous day to sit outside and enjoy food, wine, and dessert. One does not get too many of those in mid-July! Thanks to Tim for taking good care of us."

  • "Uninspiring experience. Unlike any tapas bar for real. Flatbread w/sauce from a cheap spaghetti sauce jar. Server was nice however trying to get us to order dessert before been finishing eating what was on the table. One off the list...."

  • "This was our first visit to Relish for anniversary dinner before movie. Initial impressions were not very good. The decor reminded me of Chipotle - the feel was cold and noisy. And you will likely be near or on top of another group if you dine here - not recommended for privacy. Outdoor seating looked nicer though. The service was ok - since Tapas restaurants are not common in area - it would have been nice if the server had been more helpful in understanding the menu and making recommendations. But she simply showed up and asked "are you ready to order?" Menu was very limited and plates were expensive to sample. What we did order tasted good - better than expected based on initial impressions - but not good enough to justify the price."

  • "As much as I want to like this restaurant, it is always disappointing. The food is just okay, and the service is spotty. This time we ate outside, which was nice. We ordered a variety of small dishes. The worst incident was when the waitress dumped a whole tray of dirty dishes next to our table, leaving an unappetizing mess on the patio. She cleaned it up---but it was not a good scene. We had to ask for clean plates and the service seemed harried, although the place was nearly empty."

  • "We had a terrific dinner date. Located right next to the Regal cinemas, we went to a movie, then dinner/drinks. Don't miss the Asian bbq ribs or Sarah's espresso martinis. Sundays are 1/2 price wine day too...all day."

  • "We have been here numerous times and enjoy the ability to try a variety of small dishes to please the palate. They have added some new items such as Catalan Spinach which was delightful."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "The food in this place was very good when it open but I have noticed that it has not kept up with quality. Fish tacos used to be done with a good mahi-mahi and last time it was Cod. The risotto was dry. The location and ambient are top notch but twice in a row the dining experience has been less than great at it was last time."

  • "Had dinner reservation at 7:15, which turned out to be wholly unnecessary. My guuest and I had a lot of catching up to do and ordered some sangria, which was pretty decent. I think our poor waitress got tired of checking back in if we were ready to order food, whihc we did get around too eventually. About 9:10pm the lights went out in the other half of the restaurant. We asked what was going on and heard, "Well, we do close at 9 oclock" 9 o'clock? Really? Although we were welcome to sit in the half-dark, virtually empty restaurant, we took the hint and left. The food was mediocre and not as good as the kitchen's ambitions. Would I go back? Probably - one visit doesn't always give an accurate picture, but I won't go out of my way to"

  • "Each time we go we have a new combination of food to try. We love the new items the chef has put on the menu. The Valentines meal was awesome. We had a great time!"
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "The food was good. Portions were small, consistent with the name Tapas. Pricey. Good service."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "If you are looking for a place that provides large portions, this isn't the place. Despite the smaller sizes, the food still delivers a big plate taste. Small and cozy, you'll feel a nice intimacy. I enjoyed the tacos the most of this menu, that's a must try. A tad bit pricey for the small portions but not outrageous."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Great all around menu, multiple choices for all palettes. Fantastic food, good atmosphere, waitress was mediocre. Chef was friendly, and personally checked each table for satisfaction. Not only will I be going back, I just may become a weekly regular!"

  • "I dont ever do reviews. But here it is. Would say i liked the atmoshere they have created. Was nice having a female solo acoustic act playing nice music for Valentines Day. But if your gonna offer a 4 course meal at a 4 star price. Please train your staff on how to properly serve their customers. Every new course was brought to our table while our old dirty ones were still on the table. Also we had to ask them to please remove the dirty ones. Then the dreaded diner question. Are you still working on it? Once again they brought our dessert to table and they actualy had to set it on the table and push the plate into our dinner plates to allow it to fit. At this point i was furius! We wont be back."

  • "My wife and I went to relish for the first time to celebrate her new job. The drinks, especially the martinis, were great and the signature salad and flat breads excellent. I wasn't as impressed with the "big plate" fare. The breading on the spicy shrimp and calamari was too heavy and the quality of the tuna steak lacking. The tuna steak was very sinewy. This is the perfect place for drinks and a snack before/after a movie at Regal but not the greatest to fill up for dinner. Also, the tapas tend to be pricey and add up in a hurry!"

  • "Food was OK, a bit pricey for what you get. Would not have been a fan of the bill if we hadn't had a groupon."
    Dined on 2/7/2014
  • "Trio of soups included French onion, tomato bisque, and potato leek...all were well-prepared and served at the appropriate temperature. The pintxos ordered included the seared ahi tuna on a crostini, the beef, cilantro shrimp, and were all very flavorful. The main courses were seafood paella and chicken and chorizo paella. Both paellas were served at the appropriate temperature and were extremely well-prepared and tasty."
    Dined on 1/24/2014
  • "Interesting menu, fresh atmosphere. Not sure we got good value for our lunch selections. Smaller size portions, we added soup to our order but onion soup tasted stale, over salty and sour. Creme Brûlée was excellent. Service was slow."

  • "Great place to eat for a vegetarian/vegan...Try the spinach, it's wonderful..."
    Dined on 1/4/2014
  • "The live music was too loud for a conversation. Our waitress moved us to a more quiet location. She was warm and friendly. Service staff in general were good except for the used knife dropped in my lap. We decided on the NY eve special for 3 of us ($35 each). The soups were good though a bit thick. The salad was very nice. Appetizers in general were good, but the chicken wings were boring with no sauce provided. Some of the servings seemed prepared in advance and had sat too long to be served. We arrived at 9:10 for an 8:30 reservation. The lamb was good, but the pasta was sticky and clunked. The duck was well cut,but lacked noticeable sauce or flavoring. The flank steak entrée was a general error and deducted from our bill. Expected more."

  • "Hostess/seating leaves much to be desired. Very disorganized. Had a reservation but no table was available. Shoved into a bar table with 2 young kids. Had to wait long periods for everything because our server was also the bartender. The food was overall just okay. the flatbread is a signature item. I'm not sure why. The duck and ribs were very good.The risotto was horrible. Difficult to wade through the menu. This is not a place to go out of your way to get to."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "In summary, my girlfriend and I were so dissatisfied with our service we walked out without ordering any food. To honest, they were lucky we had the patience to wait the additional SIX minutes to simply pay for our drinks before leaving. In 45 minutes, our waiter appeared only to take drink orders and drop off two bottled beers. He never came back until we were leaving. The bartender ran from the bar when she saw me coming, and the rest of the employees flat-out ignored us as they had their own private conversation. No tapas, no service, no good experiences and no tip. See Google review for more in-depth review."

  • "Not exactly what I expected. There were few small plates. They had petite plates and then entre size. Food was good but noise level in room off to right as you enter was very loud."

  • "I visited this restaurant with my husband. We were both very satisfied with the food and the friendliness of the staff. Our waiter was very very helpful in describing the dishes and making recommendations. I would encourage others to visit this restaurant. It is a great surprise. I plan on returning often."

  • "I had the tapas selection; spouse had the lunch special with soup & empenadas. Both of us enjoyed the meal -- a departure from the ordinary Cincinnati fare. Good job, RELISH!"

  • "My wife and I stopped for Tapas. This is not the typical tapas restaurant with dozens of selections. In fact, our favorites were the small tacos. But the dishes were well prepared and very tasty. I certainly recommend this restaurant."

    Dined on 10/3/2013
  • "I love any place that offers tapas. The tapas here did not seem fresh. I got the distinct impression things were made ahead and heated over. Even the tapas that came out a bit later, one being mushrooms, which hold heat long after cooking, were only luke-warm. I think the offerings have the potential to be something special, but it just didn't rise to that level for us. Given that it's a 25 minute drive, and there are a number of better options in the area, I wouldn't choose RELISH again, I'm sorry to say. Our server was great. She was very, very sweet, attentive and professional."

  • "Went to Relish for the first time and loved it! We've been to Spain many times and love the tapas scene. Relish offers a very authentic twist on this small plate idea with the plenty of flexibility to suit all tastes. Even kept my veggie daughter happy :-)"

  • "My wife and I found the restaurant quite enjoyable. Service was great. The ribs van spicy shrimp were outstanding. The calamari was exceptionally chewy. Probably not cooked fast enough. Will be back."

  • "There aren't many non-chain restaurants in the area so I finally convinced my husband to try tapas outside of Europe. The waitress was very helpful and we had a fabulous evening with friends. Sangria was yummy and so was flatbread. Spinach mushrooms didn't have much flavor and the empanades were OK. Mini tacos with chicken were great as was the same chicken as an entree. Free cookies at the end were a nice touch.... They were very accommodating when we asked to have some ingredients omitted, too."
