    Very good dinner experience for a birthday celebration. The tuna & beef tartare, along with the French onion soup were fantastic! We ordered the Table Salmon, Steak, and fried cod dinners. The waitress was extremely accommodating, substituting fingerling potatoes for the pearl coucuous due to a wheat allergy. The cod batter and saltiness of the frites were disappointing. Everything else, including the creme brulee was excellent. The atmosphere and service were great! It was so nice to be able to talk without a lot of loud noise.

    Le Bar always delivers! Great seating outside as well as bar seating (pretty limited). If you’re a charcuterie lover this is a place you need to try! The crowd usually dwindles later in the evening and the service is generally very good.

    Food was outstanding but service was appalling. Server ignored us for 30 minutes after bringing the wrong drink then proceeded to argue that it wasn't wrong. He took orders from tables that had been seated AFTER us while we patiently waited to put in an appetizer and have my drink order corrected. He was rude & scatterbrained barely saying a word to us- not even to ask how our meal was. The same server spilled my drink all over me a year ago and hardly uttered an apology and never took the drink off the bill. Very disappointing as this was one of my favorite spots to dine and bring students.

    We had previously only been here for a special event. Tonight we decided to come in and eat on the balcony, which had a great view. We were very pleasantly surprised by how delicious everything was. We ended up ordering everything from the specials menu and everything was better than expected. Deserts were trying a little too hard but were still tasty. We will definitely return.

    Had an absolutely wonderful dining experience. Had forgotten about this gem of a restaurant with such a fabulous menu. Tucked away on Victory Parkway (with private garage parking) makes it feel like you were being admitted to a secret club. It was cozy and comfortable as soon as you entered. It was a little busy- but sometimes you’re ok waiting for a great cocktail. Appetizers of Escargot and Masoinette shrimp were fabulous Entrees of seared duck breast and a perfectly prepared filet did not disappoint. Wine pairing was perfect. Our waitress was wonderful. Even though it was a busy evening she was attentive and pleasant. It was a true Jean Robert experience. He even ventured from the kitchen to walk through the ding room and greet his guests. Loved the evening!

    First time at this restaurant. Reservation was at 5:45, waiter rushed us. He seemed impatient and wanted us to order appetizers and food at the same time. Food was ok, grouper with orzo was cool, charcuterie board was very minimal. My husbands filet was good. Dessert was amazing and wine was great.

    Our server was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and timely with drink refills etc. The food was very good, really no complaints about portions, flavor, etc. Great dishes had by all. Shrimp appetizer was outstanding. The meal started off well in terms of pacing but fell apart on the main course. We waited 90 minutes between salad and entree. The slow service couldn't be overlooked. My steak arrived cooked properly but it had cooled to near room temp. Chef de Cavel was short handed in the kitchen. Ultimately I wouldn't go out of my way to go back here.

    Outstanding food and service. There were three of us and, unusual for us, all of us ordered red meat as main dishes - two fillets and a rack of lamb. All were perfectly cooked medium rare as requested. Appetizers were creative and definitely would be ordered again. It is nice to still have a top-notch JR French restaurant in Cincinnati.

    The locals next to us said they were short two wait staff which may have caused some of our issues. We stood at the reception desk for a good 5 minutes or more while the hostess served wine and chatted with a table. Our first impression of our waiter was fantastic as he described about 8 or more specials for the evening in great detail. Why this was not printed out to save him time and help us remember what he said is still a puzzlement. The next issue was the dirty martini that decided to take a bath and visit another distillery. It wasn't dirty and it was not Tangeray Gin as requested. The food on the whole was pretty tasty except the burata appetizer. This one sounded fantastic and I was waiting for the unique flavor burst of all of these ingredients. However, to me, nothing really meshed into a composite whole. It really was like a bunch of ingredients on a plate. It looked beautiful, but there was not harmony in the elements. Final thoughts on the waiter, as nice as he seemed and as knowledgeable as he was, he did not have time to take a picture for us and at the end of the evening just set our bill down and left without a thank you, I hope you enjoyed your meal, come back soon, or anything. This is a place with fantastic potential and I am hoping that the short staff is what cause our experience. If you like french food and have 2 -3 hours, perhaps you will have a little better luck on another night.

    Total experience keeps getting better. There were 5 off menu specials the night we dined; we couldn't resist and ordered 4 of them - superb additions. Service was excellent as usual, tables have white table cloths and are comfortably spaced. A frequent go-to restaurant for me despite the 15 mile drive. An extra plus compared to downtown and OTR is free parking.

    We arrived on time for our reservation and asked the hostess for an outside table of which there are about a dozen, and only three of which were in use. She replied she didn't think she had any availability outside because others had come earlier and requested them. My wife questioned this since when we made our reservation no seating preference was offered. (We had dined here several times before.) The hostess finally acquiesced and seated us at a table outside. Our waitress was very pleasant and knowledgeable. However, the soup that was served us belonged to another table as was our entrees! In this day of COVID-19 we wondered who had breathed on our food the same as we had for somebody else's. The food was good and we had a nice time enjoying the fantastic weather. We left after 90 minutes and far less than half of the tables had been used.
