Celebrated a family birthday. Service was excellent with server very knowledgeable of both menu and wine selections. Appetizer portions were very large and entrees incredibly tasteful.

We had high hopes based on a great experience at Jean Robert's French Crusty restaurant. Unfortunately, we were disappointed. The bean soup was good, but nothing special. The pork came in a small portion and was over-cooked. The trout arrived unexpectedly since the waiter told us they were out and did we mind a white lake fish as a substitute. The trout was overshadowed by the sauce that our server poured over it when served. On the bright side, the creme brulee was quite good.

My wife and I, good friends, and clients have been entertained and entertaining at The Table, since its inception! The owner and creative talent, Jean Robert de Cavel, continues to create a menu giving homage to local and regional sources as well as old French standards, like croque Messieur. The service is knowledgeable and impeccable, under the seasoned and expert leadership of Mary Lou Lind, working with Jean Robert at several previous locations. I can’t recommend the restaurant high enough and I haven’t even discussed the bar, lunch boxes, pastries and desserts—all of which are fantastic!

Have eaten here half a dozen times when in town on business. Excellent food....always. Usually order something that is a special not listed on the menu, never dissapointed. Noise level not bad even when the house is full.

This was the most perfect dinner I have ever enjoyed. The service was prompt and professional, and our waiter was an expert on the menu and wine offerings. The kitchen produced flawless meals. Every bite was delicious - I had escargot (with extra bread for dipping), sea scallops with pork belly, and the Mille Guillermo napoleon. Outstanding! Highly recommended for a fancy meal out.

Seated at a quiet table as requested. At checkin we were asked if we had any time constraints (theater, etc). We informed them that yes we were headed after dinner to the theater. Our server, Hope, asked what time we would like to have completed our meal. She then worked with us efficiently and effectively so that we got out in plenty of time for the short walk to the theater. Hope was a friendly, gracious and very helpful server. We would definitely ask for her again when we return to this fine restaurant. Our meal was excellent in all respects, and the wine we chose was a perfect accompaniment to our appetizers and entrees.

Jean-Robert's never disappoints. The service is impeccable, the food delicious and beautifully presented, and the atmosphere is quaint and relaxing. Ann made sure that we had plenty of time to dine before leaving to see Hamilton. It was the perfect kick-off to a fabulous evening of entertainment. We will definitely be back.

Before the Broadway show, Hamilton, we wanted a memorable meal to set the stage for this special evening. We shared and enjoyed a trio of small plates with elegant presentation accompanied with the appropriate wine. Outstanding service also added to make everything special.

Amazing restaurant -- by far the best French food that we have experienced in Ohio. Every time we eat here, it takes us right to a little French bistro in Paris. We have not tasted anything that we have not loved here (the frog legs are to die for) and the service is absolute perfection. It is a must every time we are in Cincinnati.

As always Jean Roberts food was spectacular. The service was outstanding also. The only issue was there was a loud, intoxicated table of what looked like older regulars. 3 loud men joined 4 women in the booth and it was very distracting. Their waitress did quiet them down once. One of the men went table hopping to another table. This did not turn into an intimate Valentines dinner with my wife.

The food is beautifully plated and outstanding in presentation and expert preparation. The Lobster salad is to die for with so many unique flavors and textures. The halibut was beyond delicious and perfectly prepared. The chef is first rate on a par with Michelin starred restaurants we have eaten at all over the world.
