Our meal was fantastic from start to finish and rest assured the staff is taking all necessary precautions during this time. It was great to see the lovely Mary Lou again and Darren provided excellent top-notch service!

Another superb experience at Jean-Robert's table. Two of us ordered the famous lobster salad (no Cracker Jack added until baseball season begins--whenever that is!), and for entrées, I had the filet cooked to perfection over a bed of polenta with a red wine sauce; the other two ordered the coq au vin and steelhead trout, both of which were tender and perfectly seasoned.

This is one of the few restaurants that has maintained its quality in food preparation and service over the years, with well-curated wine list. You can order at any price point you wish and be assured that you will drink a quality wine. Jean-Robert's Table is our preferred restaurant in Cincinnati, and once the current pandemic passes, we will return to support it.

I was so disappointed when the scallops with risotto left French Crust's menu, but then was extremely delighted to find it again at Jean-Robert's Table. It was as delicious as ever! The service was wonderful, and we had an excellent evening with friends before "the quarantine." This was our second time at Jean-Robert's Table, and we liked even more this time around. I can't wait to go back to try the butternut squash ravioli appetizer!

Really did not enjoy my experience at all. Waiter was handling all of the tables at lunch time so not able to tend to us quickly. We were one of maybe 4 groups in the space and it took close to 45min to get our order. Just seemed a little out dated and was disappointed at the poor experience we had.

The food is always wonderful and delicious at Jean-Robert's Table. Service is great. Usually the noise level is moderate. We were first seated at a table near a large group of diners who were have such a good time that the noise-level was much higher than usual. We requested being moved to a table where we could talk to each other. We could still hear the loud diners, yet we could hear each other. Enjoyed our meal!!!

Exceptional food, service, presentation in a relaxed inviting room. We eate at a Michelin restaurants internationally so have pretty high standards. Jean Roberts meets these standards... I had the delightful lobster salad that was everything it should be and then some. Perfectly prepared lobster, delicious dressing and greens. I had the halibut that was perfectly prepared tender and savory on a bed of polenta. Our server was perfection. One of our overall favorite restaurants.

We always choose the 4 course prix-fixe selection and it never disappoints. JR Table is our go to for special occasions. This was a birthday and, as usual, we came away full, mellow and pleased. Even when we are not sure about the menu listings or unusual combinations, the chef surprises and pleases and the servers are so knowledgeable and helpful that we plan to return for our next "special occasion" soon.

Great service in a good atmosphere. The menu hasn't changed much but usually the specials are good. Unfortunately, we ran into some issues. There was a small piece of wood in our lobster salad. Then our entrees were under cooked. I went ahead and ate my steak rare, my wife sent her salmon back. It appear they through it back on the grill instead of starting over. I was almost done by the time hers returned. They did kindly comp the salmon and gave us free desert and coffee. Jean-Robert's has been on our "rotation" for theater nights for years, but we will likely take a step back for a while. Which is a shame, but it's all about the food, and the kitchen hasn't rose to the level of the front of the house in the last few visits.

Food was delicious and waiter was awesome. However, we were never served our dinner. We waited an hour after our appetizer was finished with no food before we decided we needed to leave at 10:30pm. We were told someone left the kitchen and that was why there was a delay, but saw every other table received food including those who sat down after us. Although the experience was not great, they were kind enough to comp us for the dinner we ordered and provide us each with a glass of wine. Felt bad for our waiter as it was not his fault. Have heard this is not the first service related issue that has happened here. Still would give it another chance because the food was delicious and the waiter was great.

The food was good but not exceptional in any way. The foie gras was close to exceptional except for the duck confit which was completely unnecessary ...though an interesting variation...for purists, completely unnecessary.

The river caviar was disappointing at best and definitely not worth the $55/oz.

The escargots were super and cooked to perfection

What was unforgivable was the over cooked Halibut special. Not overly dry but dry enough for a French restaurant.

The skate with lobster sauce was very good.

Most disappointing of all was the Maitre'd who was snooty at best and completley uncalled for in this nice midwestern ciry.

Also out waiter was a little intrusive while not always there when you needed him.

Do not recommend this place unless they dramatically revitalize their methods

Jean-Robert’s is my favorite restaurant in the city and it did not disappoint on Wednesday. Excellent service, incredible food, and the same great experience we have every time we go. I had the fois gras and duck breast, my wife had the lobster salad and the halibut. The overall quality was excellent.

I've loved Table over the years, though it's clear that the once spectacular bistro has fallen from its past height of glory. Service was atrocious - very few details on food delivery and no specifics provided on wine pairings. We were provided the tasting menu as reference as the waiter did not know the menu. The food from the tasting menu was very good, mostly. The pièce de résistance was the Soufflé, though it was intended to be Crème Brûlée. The main courses were very good, unfortunately the service and unsuccessful attempt of a Crème Brûlée has ruined my outlook for Table and I cannot recommend any longer.

There are no words to describe the beautiful experience we had. Deron was the most amazing host and server. His description of the offerings was artistic and thorough.
The kitchen embraced my vegetarian palate, when oftentimes, vegetarians are treated as a second class citizen in restaurants, but not at Jean-Robert’s Table.
Thank you, for the time, attention and detail to the cuisine, thank you for this rare experience in the Midwest. We were taken away to another place and time; a gift not often offered in these parts.
With grace and gratitude, we thank each of you greatly.

Especially enjoy the ambience of JR's Table. Hoped to have lobster bisque, but not available that evening. Waiter very good - a long list of menu items to remember - he knew it all - spoke just a little bit fast (and we have no hearing limitations) We'll be back!!! Thank you

Service was amazing after the commotion settled (buzzed birthday party right next to our booth). Ann (our waitress) made excellent recommendations: helped us pick a bottle of wine, answered all our questions about the menu items, and helped create a personalized vegetarian (and offered a vegan option as well) meal for me. Will definitely return!
Only con: Restrooms need updated/tidied up a bit.

My wife’s birthday dinner We enjoyed the bar area for a cocktail. We were seated promptly at our reservation time. The service was attentive without being overbearing. The food was good and the sauces added a lot of flavor. The restaurant while causal and comfortable still felt like “fine dining “.

First bad experience I’ve had at Table and it’s always been my favorite restaurant in town. Service and delivery of food was unreasonably slow. After a long wait, the soup had chilled off and the salad was blah. Sure hope this was an isolated experience.
