The food was excellent. My husband's Steak Diane was tender and very tasty. The sweet potato agnolotti were in a wonderful sage cream sauce that I loved. They could double the amount and serve as an entrée.
Steak tartare was a nice portion with accompaniements. The meat could have been seasoned a little more heavily, but still very good.
Our server was knowledgable and funny. Nice guy.
We were in the small room to the right of the front door. Freezing cold, even with two space heaters running. I won't make the mistake of agreeing to be seated there again.

Had been in the building thru its previous tenants. This restaurant is not styled for cozy and warm anymore and that was a disappointment. It feels hard and uninviting...kind of stiff.
The food was very good and the service was very good.
Unfortunately the eve we attended it was bitterly cold outside and in and the out of date floor heater was woefully inadequate.
So I don't think I'd return just cause I've been there and done it and have so many other choices that have more appeal. Good luck and Thank you!

Seriously overpriced. The meal was fine but we (a party of four) were shocked at the bill. I can think of a dozen restaurants in this town where I can get a better meal and not feel I've been held up. We'll never go back.

On-Line menu not representative of actual menu. Halibut on-line $29, actual $36. Halibut served with a layer of gelatinous something (?) on the bottom - not tasty. Key Lime tart for dessert average at best. 5:30 reservation seated directly next to only other couple in restaurant = odd and restaurant was practically empty when we left at 6:30 = makes initial seating even more odd. Tough night costing $160 including tip.

Although the food at Postmark was above average, the experience was quite confusing. The menu begins with what is titled "First Paragraph." My guests and myself assumed these items were appetizers and, as a result, ended up sharing what were actually salads. Even these were strange salads - a circle of browned but very COLD goat cheese, misleadingly described as "brulee." A section entitled "Salutations" could be found at the END of the menu ... with no prices. We later decided these were the appetizers - but why were they placed at the bottom of the menu, and were they ... free? Our server, although polite and attentive, made no effort to explain the menu or steer us in the right direction. A last note: one of my guests order the French onion soup. He said it was delicious but was still nursing his burnt mouth the next day. Granted, French onion soup will be hot, very hot, but this was scalding and remained so until the end of the meal. In retrospect, I feel as if I never really fully experienced what Postmark has to offer and, although we could have asked questions for clarification, remain still somewhat angry that we were left to flounder through the menu on our own.

This is the third time we've been to Postmark for dinner. It's a great neighborhood location. We enjoyed the cheese board and appetizers to start. The main dishes, especially the fish, were delicious. The service continues to be surprisingly unknowledgeable. Our server didn't know which cheeses on the cheese board were which or how the tapenade was incorporated in the beef entree. For the prices of the entrees, we expect more professionalism from the staff. We will be back, but not too soon.

I was very much looking forward to PostMark - but did not know they had live music. We were moved to the smaller room on the right, but still the music was too loud - and there was also background music that was also too loud - as were the guys next to us. The risotto was very good but was served in an immense dish that had a little indented space at the bottom, and the risotto was in that little space. Seemed quite pretentious. The server was lovely and tried to get the noise down and brought us complimentary dessert.

Oh NOOOOO--we have been to Postmark 4 times in the 2 months they have been open. The first 3 times were outstanding in every area, with exception maybe of noise level, but it has always been noisy, so you should expect it. They had just changed the menu before this visit, so this is the 3rd menu we have seen. With each menu the prices are going up, but unfortunately with this latest menu the food went down. We (3 out of 4) had the chestnut gnocchi . The flavor was fine, but the consistency of the gnocchi was that of slice off cookie dough. VERY dense--the blue cheese on top was nice but there was also no sauce whatsoever. This made the dish very dry and honestly, just weird. The forth person had the mushroom risotto, and it was very tasty. I am hoping they change the menu again soon! Service was excellent.

Postmark was a really enjoyable experience. The staff was attentive without being intrusive. My wife very much enjoyed her Sazerac which was on the cocktail menu. The wine list had a lot of interesting wines that were reasonably priced. Interesting experience in that the wine I selected was unavailable due to a mistake in delivery. So the manager gave us the wine that was delivered in error at the same price even thought it was a more expensive wine. I only knew this by chance but wanted to share given that I think it reflects well on the management. The entrees were excellent.

This was a business meeting dinner but because of the delicious meal, elegant but casual atmosphere, and great service it turned into a relaxing meeting where we could comfortably talk business but also enjoy small talk with each other. The food -- starting with a delicious seafood appetizer of oysters and shrimp -- and delightful bottle of Chardonnay -- were paired well thanks to the recommendation of our server, and the courses came out paced well too, again thanks to the excellent service. Three of us enjoyed steak, chicken and fish and we were all very happy with our choices. We split a piece of pecan pie just to have a little sweet ending. All in all, this local gem of a restaurant in a great Cincinnati neighborhood near the University is well worth trying -- if I lived in the area, I would be a regular.

Our server, Hope, was very good. Engaging and genuine. Food varied. Four grad special accompanied by overly sweet items- a French toast, fruit compote and pumpkin butter ? No balance of savory and sweet. Perfect spatzle and smoked pork belly but again overly sweetened by the Pumpkin butter and not needed. Brussels sprouts with pig ears was overly sweet. The ingredients appear to be first rate and well prepared but in several instances lacked subtlety and balance.

We had to wait an uncomfortably long time for our meals to be served. Our experience would have been nearly perfect had we been informed that the items we ordered required extra time to prepare. When diners are seated, the staff is encouraged to make a practice of asking whether guests have any time constraints. If the answer is "yes" the staff can recommend dinner items accordingly.

So I am the guy that Opentable hates I rarely give positive reviews for highly rated restaurants because I feel others have accurately rated the a restaurant and one more ditto is not meaningful or persuasive. However I will jump in when things are less than I expect and particularly for establishments that have high ratings. We ate here tonight, after 15 minutes of ordering a bottle of wine that I could see sitting at the bar I walked up and asked to taste it and take it to our table. The experience went downhill from here. The service was not slow but almost nonexistent. There is a noticeable difference between a mechanical service approach and someone who is truly interested in your experience and satisfaction. This was more the latter and had no true engagement in what this experience was about. Lastly there are times when the food is so overwhelming that it makes up for the rest but we were totally unimpressed. Neither of us finished our entrees, the portion size was large, but the flavors went for complexity rather than create dishes that tasted good. Maybe we picked a bad night and bad dishes but not a redo for us. Be careful here this was not a good experience.
