    Had a reservation for 8.15pm. Wasn't seated until 9, and that's because no one at all was at the reception area. There were several empty tables, yet no staff to be found. We get seated in a nice top floor, outdoor table, all by ourselves (no other tables around on this level), yet it was a nice trick because they completely forgot about us. Took another 30 minutes to get drinks, while we saw others that came in after us were already getting their orders taken. It wasn't until after 10 that we got our food, and then that was a disaster. Ordered seafood pot ($18 dish) FOR the seafood, yet they "forgot" to add the scallops. I paid $18 for rice noodles and ~8 baby shrimp. I WAS a loyal customer. Not anymore.

    The restaurant only had about 10 people there. The service was horrible. Took about 15 minutes to be greeted by server and another 10 to get our drinks. The food left little to be desired. Did not seem fresh, the vegetables seemed to be frozen and out of a bag. The food was not very hot. The food is overpriced for the quality you get.

    Asked for seating outside. Atmosphere was good. Took 20 minutes for waiter to arrive and ask for drinks. This only after we went to the servers to notify them of the delay. Service only fair after that. Restaurant was otherwise 10% full. This was a Sunday eve at 7p. No apology from anyone for poor service. Parking is difficult.

    I told the young female seater / greeter that I was on a first date and she seated me in a very private spot. There is private seating up and down stair by the bar. The outside is great as well when weather cooperates. Food is consistently good and there are also some nice surprises with the chef doing a little extra twist. We had a six hour diner -- first date with great service from Moses. His real name. Made Teak are monthly diner spot.

    We came on a rainy night so we did not enjoy the outdoor dining. It took awhile-restaurant was not crowded at 6:3 to get water & also to get a server to order beverages. Server was not overly friendly. We were hoping for enjoy one of the Walleye dishes-(they have 3 on the menu) and they were out of walleye! Also wanted steamed dumplings-out of them as well. My husband enjoyed his curry dish, but he ordered it at a hotter level then my Thai Chicken spicy and mine was definitely hotter. My son order a chicken appetizer-fried bland chicken with a sauce that seemed to be out of a jar.Spring rolls-nothing special. I was disappointed -not up to par. We tried to use AMEX gift card-they would accept it but reduce the amount on the card by $10!

    It had been awhile since I had been to Teak, I heard they are under new ownership and hadn't heard great things. I can say the food was still excellent, so that was a positive. However, the service was average, at best; and they wait staff/management seemed to be extremely confused on everything from where to sit people, to what we ordered and which table was getting what food. It wasn't enough to make me not come back, but you can tell it's not a very well oiled machine at this point. It took almost 10 minutes for us to be seated and it wasn't even that busy, our order was messed up and service was overall pretty slow.

    Teak is still one of my top three favorite restaurants in Cincinnati strictly for the food. Service was horrible the only thing that saved it was a waitress that was not even our waitress that actually showed some attentiveness to us when we had requests. We sat at our table for at least 30 minutes before she came for our drink order and we ordered a appetizer right away. The appetizer came out with our dinner! We only seen our waitress for our initial order when she brought our order out and to bring the check. Other than that we had to grab a second waitress every time for additional who was busy herself. Again the food is so excellent it's the saving grace but service wise not a good experience at all. May just order to go for now on.

    I went to Teak for my birthday with my significant other, and while WE had a good time together, the service and the food were somewhat disappointing. He liked his entree (cashew chicken), and I ordered the spicy chicken basil noodle dish, but they were out of the wide noodles and the server insisted that they could substitute the rice noodle and the dish would taste the same. Well, it didn't. It was very salty. I am a Thai food connoisseur (and he actually works at a high end Thai restaurant) and for the price and reputation, we were disappointed. They were also out of the Thai beer he ordered.

    Have been here before and was surprised by the poor service last Saturday. Once we were seated on the incredibly loud third floor, it was literally 15 minutes until a server came to us. We didn't even have drinks yet and the first thing he asked was were we ready to order dinner. We ordered everything at once and it took another 15 minutes to get the beer I ordered (that's 30 minutes to get a drink for those keeping count!). Once the food came it was great but the service was poor.

    Great place for an outdoor dinner with a couple of friends. Everyone had different dishes and all raved about how good each was. The wait staff anticipated our every need and were very nice. Outside was quiet enough for conversation, and shaded by trees and bamboo on the lower level while the vibe from the city trickled in and gave the place energy. Prices were very reasonable. We will definitely be going back!

    Our server seemed like she was high - to make a long story short, she was inattentive to the point that we ordered too much due to her... and brought wrong drinks to our table THREE times and didn't correct her mistakes after being reminded several times. The older woman who seems to be the owner was treating her staff terribly. It was very unpleasant all the way around. Unfortunately, this restaurant has dropped to the "only if I have a coupon" list.

    We had to wait a bit for outdoor dining, so we went to the bar. Bartender took and filled 3 out of 4 of our orders and just forgot the last... Weird, though she was very busy. When finally seated, our waitress was very confused (language issue?) and kept recommending things that weren't still available. She even had trouble with a diet Coke order! When meal came, she mixed up who got what... Food was good and outdoor dining nice, but don't think it's worth the effort.

    We arrived early with some out of town relatives so we went to the bar to introduce them to Danielle. It was great!!! Fast service and good appetizers. Our reservation time arrived so we went upstairs. We decided to eat inside and were seated. No one came to see us for at least 20 minutes. Finally they took our order and brought out a soup and a carrot salad. A sushi dinner was brought out for one person and nothing else for 20 minutes. finally our dinner came out after more than an hour later. We had them (Moses) box it up as we were ready to go. We should have stayed at the bar with Danielle where the service was great!! She even served me a drink upstairs on one of her many trips to take care of her customers. She is the best!

    My family took me to Teak Thai for mothers day. Wonderful. We arrived on time but wanted outdoor seating which was a 15 min. wait. No problem-the happy hour was still going on, so the drinks and appetizers were all half price. When seated our food was fresh, beautiful, and service as really good.

    Rather than opt for the run of the mill $29 Mother's Day brunch at most restaurants we chose Thai food! We made the right choice. The food was excellent, as always. My daughter and I had just joined Weight Watchers, but found plenty of food options on the menu to keep us on our diet track. The only down side was the service. Usually it is excellent, but tonight it left something to be desired. Our waitress forgot one of the sushi items we had ordered, and did not check back on us very often. All-in-all though, we had a great Mother's Day dinner.

    We visited Teak before going to a play on a weeknight, so it wasn't crowded at all. We were able to sit on the back patio and take our time. Our server was attentive and personable. The food was really good. We started with the Steamed Dumplings, which were very tasty. I am not a spicy person, so a level 3 was plenty for my Cashew Chicken. My husband had the Chicken Thai Spicy, level 8-he's all about the heat! Both servings were large and more than enough to fill us up without feeling over-full. The food came out promptly, but again, we didn't feel rushed. It was an enjoyable meal that was a perfect date night.

    This was my husband and my first trip and was to celebrate his birthday. We went on a Monday night in order to avoid crowds and were able to do that, however they were out of a couple of dishes that we wanted to try due to a busier than expected weekend we were told. We had curry puffs for an appetizer, 2 glasses of Cabernet, and ended up ordering for main dishes Siam Chicken which was very good (but could probably feed 2-3 people) and Volcano Shrimp. Overall it was good and we'll likely return, but if you want to avoid crowds you might want to avoid a Monday or Tuesday because they may also be out of some menu items.
