    What a nice surprise! I didn’t know much about Alcove and I thought it would have the brewery feel and look. Instead it is a beautifully decorated restaurant with a delicious menu!

    The ambiance and drinks were amazing, as expected. Minus the pancakes having a crumbly cornbread texture, the food was great.

    What a wonderful dining experience! We started at the bar for a little pre dinner cheer. Loved our bartender Rachel! & the craft cocktails. Dinner then included some guidance from Ben- one of our favorite restaurant managers in the city. He will be sure that every detail is well executed. We had a party of 4 and shared both the steak & pork chop. Both were cooked perfectly. We ordered the artichoke & kale gratin- amazing! Also had the beet & goat cheese salad which everyone enjoyed. Dessert was homemade very vanilla ice cream. I’m not even an ice cream eater and Ioved it. So happy we tried this restaurant! This will be a new Cincinnati staple for us!

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded 5 days agoWow Theresa, thank you so much for the outstanding review! We'd love to be one of your staples. We'll see you again soon!

    Food was great. The venue was really cool. Service was good except we had a reservation and didn’t get seated until 30 minutes after the reservation. Sort of defeats the purpose? But otherwise, everything was awesome and will go back.

    The restaurant is beautiful inside and we had excellent service. Nice wine list. Elevate the food and I’d give 5 stars. The bean soup was too salty, the mushroom tartine was good, the salmon cakes disappointing (especially the remoulade), and the chicken sliders a bit overwhelmed by the spice. The smoked trout spread was excellent and The bread pudding tasted pleasantly like French toast with ice cream. Irish coffee was very nice with dessert on a cold night.

    We made a reservation for 5 on a Wednesday night, and arrived on time. We were given a round high top table meant for 4 and had to squeeze in. Asked if there were other tables available but was told it was a fully booked night. If we had known we’d be squeezed in like that, we could have picked a different place or date. Food was good though, and our server Miranda was on point.

    Louder than i was expecting, the food was 'okay'. My husband was not a fan of his steak or the salad we shared. It was cubed and very chewy. I liked my fish! I wasn't too satisfied with the cocktails I ordered. I'm generally a post partum lightweight who can only handle one beer but I could hardly tell if these had any alcohol on them. Just sugar

    We decided to try Alcove’s brunch and we are glad we did! The restaurant is such a fun and happy place and the staff was amazing as always including our server Phil. Management and the chef came around to check in and be sure we were happy with our meal. We had the biscuits with goetta gravy and it was SO good!!! The Madgriddle was a fun surprise with the spicy maple syrup and we shared a cinnamon roll for dessert (we took it home because we were FULL). I tried the flight of mimosas and really enjoyed the cider version. Their GM told me that the farmer they use for their produce also made the cider. Definitely going back for another weekend treat.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded on October 31, 2022Thank you for the great review Kim! We love partnering with local farmers for as much food as we can get. It's awesome that you connected with that. We look forward to seeing you soon!

    While the burger I had was quite large, I thought the portions of some of my friends were a bit small. for brunch. The hash brown balls needs more seasoning and there should have been 2 or 3 instead of one. The mimosa was nice, but very expensive. A bottle of Cooks and a some orange juice should not be $39.00. I though the decor was lovely and our server was very nice. The manager also stopped by to check in on us, which I always think is a nice touch. We'll probably visit again, but stick to a beer or two instead of the mimosa.

    Loved the vibe! We enjoyed the drinks and salad. Just gave it a 4 star rating versus 5 because the jerked chicken sliders were loaded with so much cayenne pepper that it caused the flavor to be unbalanced and not as well-rounded as it could have been. My husband loves heat and had a hard time eating them. We'd still go back, however, as we think we'd like other dishes better.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded on October 18, 2022Thank you very much! Typically our Sliders are not overpowering in their spice; we'll make sure we take a look at that. Thanks for the feedback!
