- $13 for a small saladGlenVIPDined on 9/6/2014Another great dinner. The only downside was what my wife was led to believe was a dinner salad that was anything but. It was a very small portion and at $13, very over-priced. Great service. Great food. Great wine and beer list.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- SeatingBillRDined on 9/6/2014Went to movie & then walked next door (We had reservations). Weather was perfect thus a special night!Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Food ok, portion size inadequateOpenTable Diner Since 2011VIPDined on 9/4/2014We got teh salad with salmon as a meal. Salmon must have been 2 oz. Not enough for a meal. The desert was good.Special Features:
- Did A Great JobPaulaDined on 8/31/2014Whatever we needed they attended to. Unique atmosphere in a quant area. Well doneSpecial Features:
- Best Neighborhood RestaurantMMConcertDined on 8/31/2014Drive in frequently from NKY to the local indy movie theater. Best contemporary restaurant in the neighborhood. Food is consistently very good, if not excellent, and the staff is above reproach. The weather was nice and we chose to eat outside, but the noise from the traffic flow starting and stopping directly in front of the seating area quickly became annoying while trying to converse. Mussels were over-done and shrunk to the size of a pencil eraser, but still tasty. Do wish they were open for lunch, as the alternative eating establishments leave a lot to be desired.Special Features:
- Another enjoyable mealtiffhoofVIPDined on 8/29/2014We've enjoyed several dinners at The Quarter Bistro. The food is always consistently delicious and the service spot on. It can be a bit loud at times, but we love the lively atmosphere. A great date night spot.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Always Great @ Quarter Bistro!COteamVIPDined on 8/27/2014No matter how much time there is between our visits, we return to find the Quarter Bistro its consistent great self! The service is sharp, the ambiance is energetic & comfortable, the menu offers interesting and delicious choices, and you never feel like you have to rush for the next seating. Also worthy of noting is that the management actually pays attention to any requests noted in your Open Table reservation. On occasion, we've asked for the background music to be turned down and they have always accommodated our request.Special Features:

- Dining with friendsCincyjaneDined on 8/8/2014I took two friends to the Quarter Bistro and it was their first visit. We all enjoyed our meals and the service was fine. I think they would return there based on their comments. It is one of my favorite Cincinnati restaurants.Special Features:
- Mariemont GemLindaDined on 8/3/2014The Quarter Bistro is consistently a wonderful place to have a casual outdoor or indoor dining experience. The food is always wonderful. I can always find something to fit my needs from it's varied but not huge menu. I love taking out of town guests here to experience the wholesome beauty of Mariemont. The menu is interestingly good without unusual food combinations. It has a few options for vegetarians but have seen the kitchen change items to cater my vegetarian friends.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Great food but small portionsHungryDined on 8/3/2014Food was delicious but not a good dollar value. Portions of Scottish salmon at $25 looked measley on plate and short rib tacos very small portion for $15. Service was up and down. Food was delicious. Don't go if hungry.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Noise Reduction PleaseAtasterDined on 7/26/2014Everything was very nice except the noise level makes conversation difficult, even across a two-person table. We dined there on a Saturday evening at 8 pm and the place was full and "noisy".Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Really great overall!BarbVIPDined on 7/9/2014I took 2 friends who had never dined at Quarter before and they both LOVED IT and said they want to go back. I think that the flatbread and some of the dinners are priced a bit high for rather small portions, but the food is wonderful and worth the extra treatSpecial Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Repeat Visit Still GreatjerryVIPDined on 6/21/2014We have visited this restaurant several times. It is located next to an Art Movie House so we go there often.

- Consistently goodLwerVIPDined on 6/20/2014My wife and I go here frequently because we know food and ambience is very good. This visit we had scallops with duck confit and my wife had ruby red trout and both were excellent. The only disappointment was the bread- normally crust was crisp, this time soft crust. We will be back soon. Recommend it highly.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- First Come First Serve OutdoorsGlenVIPDined on 5/31/2014Great restaurant with very nice outdoor seating. However, outdoor tables are first come first serve and cannot be reserved on open table even with request in the special request area.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.

- Dinner and a MoviejerryVIPDined on 5/21/2014We ate dinner here before going to a movie at the Mariemont Theater. The server did an excellent job of getting us out on time for the movie. We ate rather light but everything was really good. We have eaten here before and it is certainly a great destination restaurant too.Special Features:

- Mixed ResultsBobbyVIPDined on 5/17/2014My wife loved the Quarter Bistro. According to her her filet was marvelous. I had the tilefish special which was special. The accompanying potatoes and asparagus were pedestrian. You can get almost an identical, but better, meal at the Palace downtown for $8 less. The sidecar cocktails we had were very good and at only $5 each (not happy hour pricing) became terrific. We split the S'Mores creme brulet for dessert and it was great. Decor at the restaurant is very pleasing. My wife wants to return but she's going to have to do something extra special to convince me to do so.Special Features:

Next time we will plan on hanging a bit longer.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
