Bouquet Restaurant and Wine Bar Ratings and Reviews
The food was excellent. The service was sub par as the waitress was not very engaging and or ethical. Asked if could sub a potato she said yes then charged 9.00 for potato. Unimpressed with the service but the food is worth the trip. It is my hope it was just a bad night.
We have been to Bouquet many, many times. It never disappoints. I particularly like that I can bring wine from home and pay a corkage fee. If I am inclined, I can also order off their excellent and fairly priced wine list. The service is friendly, competent, attentive, and efficient. In this occasion, the food was even better than usual (and that is saying something). Everyone in our party loved their meal. We willne back soon.
Everything was wonderful. We did the tasting menu. One of the guests in our party is vegan and they even prepared a fantastic vegan tasting for them. Our server, Tara, was very kind and attentive. We were impressed with the bourbon selection, which Austin was great at walking us through and helping us make a selection. Can't wait to go back!
Bouquet was a favorite of ours for quite some time after it opened. Because of the new choices to explore in Cincinnati, we hadn't been to Bouquet in a couple of years. Unfortunately, it seems that they're coasting on past successes.
The server, who did a decent job, informed us that the menu had been "totally revamped" several times since we were there last. Bouquet, previously, was known for both elegant preparations and interesting flavors. Both seem to have changed. I ordered the "Off the Hook" fish, which was mahi. My filet was extremely dry, as if it had sat under a heat lamp for a long time. My wife's "seafood saute" was a glorified version of shrimp fried rice. Both dishes were *very* salty -- in addition to lacking any of the nuanced flavors we were used to.
Truth be told, we should have sent both entrees back -- and I take responsibility for not doing so. Just the same, the fact that *both* dishes were so oversalted made me think not much would have been different. We chose to go elsewhere for dessert and a nightcap.
Sadly, we probably will not return -- as they seem to be chasing a different sort of palate than ours.
Our service was unbelievable! We booked this for a bachelorette dinner and started with 12 ppl and it quickly every day changed because people could not make it for whatever reason. By the time we got to the restaurant we only had a group of 5. Having worked in the industry I know how much that stinks when you’re expecting a large group and it doesn’t end up that way, but they were so accommodating and just minimized our table and our waiter was great! We had a good time.
We went for 'burger night' so did not try other entrees, although many sounded interesting and very different. Burger was good, but one cooked medium results in a luke-warm to cool sandwich. If ordered again, I might do medium-well as I prefer my food warmer. Enjoyed the olives as an appetizer and the hint of orange and ginger was a plus. Excellent greens salad with a bright, refreshing vinaigrette. Service was very attentive but not intrusive.
This is one of our favorite spots in Covington. I have always enjoyed great service. The wine on tap is great. The menu offers many fresh original dishes.
I always recommend Bouquet to my customers looking for new dining spots in the greater Cincinnati /Northern Kentucky area.
It was great, I love the place, this is my third time there. Every time I leave with a great experience, because parking is little bit confusing in that area one of Bouquet staff accompanied me outside to make sure that I parked at the right spot. Great place for any occasion. Thank you for your fine details.
