We heard Wodka Bar was switching to a bar with late night pierogis, so we went for one last dinner. They served the best Ukranian comfort food, golimpki, stroganoff, etc, with great fresh ingredients. They have dozens of infused vodkas and make fabulous martinis. It's a great place. I hope their new concept on Court Street us as great, plus maybe bigger to serve more people. Thanks Wodka Bar, we will miss you.

About the restaurant
New to Cincinnati - Artemis Mediterranean Bistro, authentic Mediterranean cuisine! The owner Mehmet, is from Istanbul Turkey and the dishes presented are full of flavor. Our portions are very generous but I encourage you to save room for one of our amazing desserts like pistachio baklava! We have a very diverse menu to suit everyone’s palette, including vegetarian dishes. We do have a nice selection of wine and a full bar. We do host a lot of large parties for any occasion in either our Wine Room (seats up to 19) or our Event Room (seats 36) . We have hosted parties as large as 130 though. We look forward to serving you and your families soon.

Bellevue
About the restaurant
The Cork N Crust Pizzeria and Wine bar is located in the Bellevue Entertainment District close to cute shops, pubs, and restaurants. There are umbrella tables out front for outdoor dining as well as cozy couches on the back patio...the perfect spot to enjoy the "Big Reds" or one of the other wine flights, a charcuterie board, and our Chef's Famous Mozzarella. Recognized as one of the top 10 new Cincinnati restaurants by CityBeat readers...Cork N Crust features over 20 wines available by the glass, a great selection of wines from all over the world, and a full bar. The Crust Old Fashioned is a local favorite, and the "Cork's Coolers" are perfect on a warm day. The Specialty Pizzas are the main attraction...the "best" is a matter of opinion, but the "Bellevue" and "The "Chardonnay" run head to head each week to be the top seller. The Cork N Crust also has a Vegan, Vegetarian, and Gluten Free Menu.

About the restaurant
In November 1977, Helen And I opened Oriental Wok pursuing our American Dream. We poured our hearts into this business, meeting great customers along the way. Now, I am proud to call many of you my friends. Your support and friendship for nearly 50 years have meant so much to me and my family.

With so many restaurant choices, I am honored each time you visit Oriental Wok. Thank you for celebrating all the big and small occasions with us throughout the years. My family and I look forward to sharing more great food and laughter with you for years to come.

Truly,
Mike and Helen Wong

Cafe Mediterranean is a favorite for many delicious and healthy gluten free and vegetarian options. I loved my vegetarian stew, which was also GF. My husband had a lamb dish, from well-spiced ground lamb, that was also GF. We haven’t been to CM much in the past few years, but it was very much the same in terms of quality and freshness.
