So many people told us kaze was the best sushi in Cincy so my husband and I tried it. The food was okay - did not live up to the hype. The soup was bland and the sushi was okay but most of their rolls are filled with mayo and tempura. The restaurant itself was trendy and had a nice ambiance. We had excellent service. Overall, we enjoyed our meal here but probably won’t be back for the sushi. More

Seafood | Over the Rhine, Cincinnati

The Anchor is a great location for a meal for the OTR theatre crowd. We had our choice of tables. The server was helpful in choosing our food selections. My husband liked the cod on his sandwich but found the bread overwhelming, too much for the portion of cod. The accompanying french fries were cut thin and delicious. My serving of shrimp and grits appeared small, but was just enough for me as I am not a big eater. Only complaint is that a layer of oil surrounded the grits in the cast iron serving dish. The dish was tasty and did not overwhelm the just right shrimp. There was some confusion on the iced tea. I requested hibiscus iced tea and was given black iced tea. When I questioned the server, I was told that all their iced tea was hibiscus. Clearly, not true, but I do like well made black iced tea, which it was. The minimalist design and trays of succulents make for a pleasant atmosphere. More
