Atmosphere is very relaxing, the server was very attentive. The food from the cheese board,to the pendleton county chicken, to caramel ice cream for dessert, was a culinary experience. This is the only restaurant I've ever eaten at,that I can truly say I've eaten with all my senses. The presentation is appealing to the eyes,the aroma is mouth watering and the taste makes you want to savor every bite. Love thus restaurant! !

One of my favorite restaurants for interesting, excellent food. Wonderfully prepared, flavorful and delicious. Nice farm to table options. Good selection for those who experiment and those who don’t. Great ambiance. Like a small French restaurant, service was excellent, and very friendly. We sat at table by kitchen door so it was a little noisier in our area than rest of restaurant. We took a couple with us that had never been there before. They loved it too. Making plans to go again.

My wife and I discovered this gem through OpenTable. We both elected to order the February tasting menu - everything was amazing! The sommelier selected very good wine pairings. The restaurant itself is very cozy. It's a great setting for small groups (six or less), although I'm sure they can accommodate larger groups. We will definitely eat here again!

Celebrated a late Valentines dinner. Great ambiance, service, and execution. My Ild Fashioned was on point. My wife was happy with the wine options. Only negative was I ordered a glass of house red on “tap.” It was served cold. Not the standard for red wine at a place like Bouquet. Food was delicious, best pork I have ever had. Talked to chef Brandon after dinner. Super pleasant, knowledgeable and engaging.

Excellent choice for Valentine's Day. We both selected the tasting menu with wine pairing. Each dish was unique and tasty. The wine pairings actually did compliment the food too. Very nice, quiet, and quaint place to enjoy a nice meal. Looking forward to returning soon.

This tiny gem offers a small, but nicely varied, food menu and an amazing bourbon/whiskey list. The list is bigger than the restaurant! The craft cocktails are unique and some of the best I've tasted (try the Smoked Old Fashioned - none other can compare!). The food is delicious (our group had a flat bread pizza, salmon and a burger and all were well prepared and tasty) and the service is nicely coordinated among the staff.

The cuisine was excellent and the service was outstanding. The ambience was casual and informal. The noise level was at times quite high but diminished as the evening wore on. My friend and I never felt rushed. It is really a special place made even more so by the presence of my companion. We both agreed that we would return.

I was excited to introduce the restaurant to 11 new comers. I called before bc I thought maybe there were some pickier eaters and the birthday girl had a few issues with the tasting menu (shrimp allergy and did not care for the taste of meat- particularly beef) I was told she could order the tasting and be accomendated with other options. She mentioned to the server that she loved fish just not meat. I was disappointed that she was served the first dish (shrimp) just minus the shrimp sub apples (the dish lost a lot of flavor served this way) and the 3rd course (a meat substitute that is intended to taste like meat but is not). She doesn’t like beef so eating something that is supposed to taste like beef was probably a bad choice. She probably would have been much better off ordering the salmon off the menu and enjoyed her meal much more. I think it’s the servers job to provide this type of guidance. I feel that the server should have explained the options or substitutions to give her a choice in the matter. Otherwise, I know my group was a little high mainteance and picky so the server did as well as she could have with those types of eaters. I love Bouquet and eat there often but I will have to think twice before I bring a more complicated new comers again.

They have the Impossible Burger!!!! And their toppings compliment it very well. I want to go back every week just to eat this! Also, bourbon selection is on point. I love that we can do a fancy dinner with wine and tasting menu in the dining room, but still have the option to sit at the bar with a burger and bourbon on less special nights.

We had the cocktails (the Negroni is outstanding!), mushroom soup (needed salt), the flatbread (perfect starter to share), and the duck (superb!). The service was excellent. We tried the draft wine and it was suprisingly good. We sat upstairs where the noise level is better than on the ground floor. We were on our way to a concert and this was a stellar choice for our pre-concert dinner.

Bouquet is one of my favorite restaurants in this area and my go-to for a special occasion. My husband and I recently celebrated my birthday there and love the food and drink options, with prix-fixe and wine pairings to the standard menu. Enjoyed a bottle of the best champagne I have ever tasted, and the service and quality of food are always exceptional. The special occasion complimentary champagne starts a special evening out right. Especially love locally sourced, quality ingredients. Made my birthday dinner a wonderful night out!

The food and service is always lovely at Bouquet. We appreciate that they source ingredients locally as much as possible. The pork with lentils and whipped goat cheese was a pleasant surprise for me who rarely eats pork. My husband enjoyed the chicken and risotto. We began the meal with a surprisingly large charceuterie plate. It was almost a meal unto itself - certainly could accommodate 4 people for an appetizer. The lemon bar with candied ginger meringue was a perfect ending to our birthday dinner. Cheers!

My wife and I discovered this Gem several years ago when looking for a unique experience and have never been disappointed.

Since or discovery we routinely visit to celebrate our anniversary and birthdays and any speial occasion because we know it will not disappoint.

The food is always awesome, we always get the charcuterie mix up the entry and get a desert. Mix in some wine a smoked old fashioned or a beer created by the Chef and it is a complete experience.

We recommend it to everyone who will listen to us.

Once again the team at Bouquet exceeded all expectations. My fiance and I both went with the tasting menu and were equally blown away by chef's creations. This remains the true gem in Cincinnati dining.
