Service exceeded expectations.
Service exceeded expectations. We went with our three grown boys and total with tip was $168. We had salmon, steaks, ribs and each had a glass of wine or beer. I thought it was reasonable for a special occasion. The dress is smart casual with several men in sport coats. I felt underdressed in my tangerine colored jeans.

A Neighborhood Gem & Much More!
We eat often at The Quarter Bistro. We like it all, the food, ambiance both inside and out on the patio. Good service & interesting menu selections. By keeping their menu fresh we do not get tire of eating at TQB as MANY visits over all the years they have been in business. We are so glad they are close by!

We brought friends who'd never
We brought friends who'd never been and they couldn't stop thanking us. They are world traveled and love trying all types of food in all kinds of restaurants. This was a winner! It can be noisy during the busy dinner hours, but the noise is manageable. I recommend notifying them ahead of time that a quieter table is needed and the hostess will make every effort to seat you accordingly.

We went to the Quarter Bistro
We went to the Quarter Bistro for their Casablanca-themed dinner before seeing the movie next door. The food and service were outstanding. All 4 of us in our party said that we can't wait to go back again! :)

Loved sitting outside. Just a little chilly but the propane heater made a little oasis of comfort. Wonderful food. The truffle risotto was still a favorite.

In The Top 5 Meals Ever Eaten
My wife and I were first-timers at the Quarter Bistro this week and decided to take a risk, based on Urbanspoon ratings, to celebrate our 20th anniversary there. Everything was outstanding - food quality, service, presentation, ambiance - you name it. Our expectations were more than satisfied. Our table was perfect and the room atmosphere was lively but not loud; very enjoyable. The staff worked seamlessly together to great effect. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. My only regret is that we don't live closer.

good food in a charming location
Very good food in a charming location. The patio/sidewalk cafe out front is very pleasant with a charming view and lots of trees and plants. Inside, next to the patio, is a little bar area that was very noisy and had a guitar player. Toward the rear of the restaurant is more elegant seating as in a high end restaurant. All tables had linen table cloths. My scallops were delicious and artfully presented. My wife's burger was great and presented in a typical bistro style. Service was good. Foodies will love this place. RGinTally

Pricey but worth it
Good menu selection and main courses are very generous- easy to share
If you can get an outside table, it adds to the experience, but inside is good too

A memorable gem
Food made wonderfully, generous pours from the bar, exceptional attention to detail... What more could one ask? We cannot wait to return.

the mom's loved it!
My sister, my husband and my sister's fiance invited our mothers to a Mother's Day dinner at Quarter Bistro and the mom's haven't stopped talking about it since. We waited a little long for our table, about 15 minutes past our reservation time, but once we sat down our service was impeccable. Our party of nine started with three appetizers, which were delicious and just large enough for everyone to try a bite of each. We each got an entree and everyone very much liked their main course. Two of the mothers waited a little long and were served last -on Mother's Day- but our server noticed the snafoo and quickly brought us a complimentary round of drinks. He was friendly, knowledgeable and a real treat. We'll be back.

we looked up best restaurants in the area and quarter bistro was highly recommended. It was superb - really great mussels appetizer; fish tacos were good, as was the Jamaican Pork and the chicken breat - but the kiwi brulee dessert was marvelous. Great cocktails and wine list. Highly recommended for a special dinner.

Great Al Fresco Dining
Great outdoor dining with good food to match. We arrived at 6:30 and had our pick of the outdoor seats, 30 minutes later they were all full. The 18 hour short ribs are AMAZING - highly recommended. Although all around us people were selecting the FIsh Tacos which also appear to be a hit. We chased our meals with the Key LIme Pie with Ginger Snap crust - fantastic too. Only drawback which was not an issue for us because we were in no rush was relatively inattentive service, including a charge for two glasses of wine ordered by an adjacent table. No biggie. Just a tad inconvenient.

The Quarter is consistantly excellent. Service and food are top shelf.

Rob was our waiter and was very, very good!

I took my friend on her birthday. The evening began with a glitch, as they had not set aside the table we requested, but they corrected that. The food was very good and the service was great. The waiter provided tastes of three wines as I made my choice of a bottle. He was attentive but did not hover.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Love this place
The Quarter Bistro has always been one of my favorite restaurants. Tucked into Mariemont, it is a classy but comfortable spot for a great dinner, good wine, good service, and romantic ambiance. My date and I both had the special which was a blue bass over asparagus and a corn puree of sorts. It was outstanding. The fish was cooked perfectly, the corn puree was outstanding. The asparagus were cooked to perfection.

Excellent as Usual
The special is the always the best part of the servers experience to us as they have it down to explain and it reads like an essay!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Will not disappoint!
I always have a wonderful dining experience at Quarter Bistro. Love the decor and atmosphere, service is always good and the food is delicious! I had the scallops for the first time last Saturday and they were wonderful. They were prepared with a pear compote and edamame and were very flavorful. Will order again for sure! Also shared the guacamole appetizer which is a given and thoroughly enjoyed the watermelon gazpacho! My dining partner had the wonderful tomato basil soup and the mussels which were perfection!

Good food but service under par
I eat here a lot but my recent experience left a lot to be desired. The food was good but service as bad. First, the server never told us the specials. We had to flag him down to find out what they were. When he brought our food, he plopped it down so fast I didn't have a chance to tell him I wanted another glass of wine and had to flag down the bus boy. The server never checked to see how our meal was, either. After dinner, my friend asked for another glass of pinot - he brought her a glass of the wine I had been drinking instead. And when he brought our wine, he dumped what was left from the first glass into the new without asking. After dinner, he brought the check right away (we didn't request it) then kept checking for payment.

One of our favorite restaurants
One of our favorite restaurants in Cincinnati. It is fun to sit outside when the weather permits.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Streak was cooked perfectly as well as the chicken. Service was one of the best I have encountered. Seating is best out next to other groups, which makes it not as intimate and louder but that is the only negative. A must go on the east side of town.

Wonderful food and excellent service from our waiter, Daniel. He was so knowledgable about the entrees and was just a pleasure to be around and provided us with impeccable service! He is a definite asset to your staff!

Consistently Great Experience
The food, service, and drinks are outstanding! It can be a bit loud so asking for a seat in the back is a good idea for better conversation.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at The Quarter. Got outside seating on a lovely night. Food, service, wine, atmosphere...you can't ask for more. Its a bit of a drive for us but always worth the trip.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went this past Sunday evening on short notice. It was quite busy inside and outside, usually a good indication of a good restaurant. Overall good food and service. We went casual, pizza, fries, salads all were tasty

Quarter Bistro Has It All

It made our night
Our first time at Quarter Bistro. The ambience, waitstaff attention, and excellent food completely enhanced our special occasion. We were with another couple and I was concerned about being able to converse on a Sat evening. This place has a perfect balance of vibrant atmosphere yet intimate feel. Our waiter Bill was both patient and helpful with menu selection. The lobster Mac is as good as advertised, and 2 of us had a seared tuna special that was the best I've had. Can't wait to go back.

Short Rib Entree; best in city!
We went for a nice dinner as we have always wanted to try this restaurant. Little did we know we would find ourselves eating what is quite possibly the best dish in all of Cincinnati, and perhaps ever! The 18 hour Short Ribs are a perfectly cooked, seasoned, and presented meal; amidst a great atmosphere you find in the heart of Mariemont. Having frequented many hot spots around Cincinnati for great food, the Quarter Bistro is definitely a must try for foodies and anyone looking for a great night out. The service was amazing as well, with a personable and attentive staff. The calamari appetizer was also delicately prepared in a way that most restaurants miss. 5 stars from us, we will definitely be back!

Great spot for a nice evening
My husband and I enjoyed a very relaxing dinner this evening at The Quarter Bistro. I would love to see some new menu items... I feel it is lacking a bit on the side of options. However, I had the small Caesar and the fish tacos which were both perfect. My husband had a small Caesar and the pizza and was in heaven! We love the wine list.. very good half-bottle and wines by the glass options. Thank you! Our server was fantastic as well!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
excellent eating experience especially when combined with a good theater experience at the Mariemont theatre. I had the burger with mozzarella cheese and it was perfect at a medium rare consistency. Partner had the scallops and she loved them. Also had the chocolate flourless dessert cake and we ate the whole thing.

Excellent food. We always get the fillet. Expensive but worth it. Glad to see they have returned with their salad dressings served on the side in a llquor glass. Also the warm bread in a bag. Love it!

Daniel was our waiter and he was great. The Quarter has been my favorite for a long time and Daniel is now my favorite waiter!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had the French Onion Soup and Lobster Ravioli. Both were superb. The wine list was impressive- but I went with beer because I am a man of the people. The beer list was short but pretty good. The wait staff was attentive, but seemed a little agitated the whole time. But lots of people get agitated with me so some of that is probably on me.
All in all a good spot- worth checking out.

great night at the quarter
party of 4- wonderful service, food was at its best (we've had disappointing meals at the quarter before), and the restaurant was busy and energetic with a fun ambiance...bravo!
