    The building is beautiful, great ambiance, and friendly servers. We were disappointed in the food though. The meatballs came out rare. We showed the waitress and told her we we careful with rare meat because my wife is pregnant. She told us they’re supposed to be rare. We didn’t eat them and she didn’t offer take them off the bill, but she did offer to send them back to cook them more. I think we would go back for drinks but don’t know if I’d eat there again.

    Took my husband here for his birthday. Pros: great OTR location with parking right around the corner, walking distance to many other bars/restaurants. Beautiful refurbished old building with tons of natural light, plants, a solarium and patio. Food is fresh, farm to table, seems high quality. Can be very casual, as lots of Reds and FC fans there in t-shirts, but feels like a nicer establishment and can work for a dressier occasion as well. Food is delicious and uniquely presented. Lots of vegetable options, nice options for a lower carb or healthier meal. Nice mixed drinks and beer options. Cons: portions are small and pricey, depending on what you order. I had ginger chicken bites with the market tomatoes. We also shared a crudité appetizer. Was hungry in a few hours. Husband ordered the fish entree. Encountered some bones, but overall he felt it was filling enough. Menu is limited, but again, items were delicious.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded 3 days agoHi there, thank you for the thorough review! We're very sorry we didn't quite fill you up; we'll steer you toward some of our more filling options next time!

    The food and service were good and the environment is quite inviting, but like everything these days, the tab was a bit high. The bloody marys were tasty, but nothing special for the price. The glassware did match the wallpaper, but the sizes were quite small. Make those marys something to rave about. Serve them in a pint glass with an exciting garnish!

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded 3 days agoHi there, thank you for the feedback! We actually are right in the middle of changing our Bloody Marys to be served in a pint glass. We think you'll be pleased next time!

    Our seafood main course was supposed to be trout but actually appeared to be salmon which was not a bad thing but not expected. The green goddess salad had an odd dressing that was more lemon vinaigrette than traditional green goddess and not particularly tasty. We ordered Bogle Chardonnay and at first the server dropped off a Sauvignon Blanc or something similar. After letting her know the wine was not Chardonnay she brought a bottle of Chardonnay to the table that was not Bogle but she insisted that it was Bogle. We certainly enjoyed the overall atmosphere of the space and may return for beer and an appetizer in the future but definitely no rush.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded 3 days agoHi Byron, we're very sorry to hear that there was some miscommunication in your service, and that your experience was not perfect. We certainly want to make sure that you receive the items you order. The Steelhead Trout definitely looks and tastes a lot like salmon! We'll be sure to communicate better about what is on the plate and in the glass next time.

    First time at Alcove but not first time at Madtree. Menu was straighforward with focus on Appetizers, Tapas plates and some Entrees. Charcuterie Board was enjoyable but a little pricy, (sufficient for 2 people, but you could spread it thinner) Fried cauliflower not to our liking; a little over-fried. Salmon cakes and Bratwurst were tasty and filling. Beers was great and service was outstanding!!

    It’s beautiful for sure but our crudité plate was very suboptimal… sad looking green bell peppers, a tiny smudge of hummus, miserable carrot sticks… the beer was cold and the server was sweet but the food was a big miss.

    The food was disappointing. Perhaps the intent of the menu is tapas but the server should have provided guidance. The meatballs were 3 small meatballs but we thought they were a meal. The burger was only a burger so a suggestion to add fries or something would have been appreciated. The salads were not at all as described. The dressings and optional added chicken were good but the green Caesar salad was only iceberg lettuce and radishes, despite everything else listed on the description, and the garden salad was lettuce and carrots. Ambiance was good and the space was nice. Service was slow but the the servers were friendly.

    We went for brunch for my husband’s birthday . Ordered 2 beers and a sweet tea and a cheese board for appetizer. We then placed our order. Food came out all at once with the cheese board. We never received our drinks. Finally received drinks about 15 minutes into our meal. No apology or anything was said. The restaurant was not busy as they had just opened. Very disappointed in the service as we had much higher expectations.

    Highly recommend this restaurant. The food was very good and they have some unique offerings. I am not vegetarian, but ended up selecting options that were. Had the tomato salad and the mushroom tartine. Both were very good. My husband had the Caesar salad and loved it. Atmosphere is pretty chill, but we had an extremely noisy table beside us. No problem, we just moved to the bar after we ate and all was well. You can also eat outside or in their greenhouse. Food is good, drinks are good, and the servers were friendly and welcoming. When we couldn’t find our server, someone else stepped in to assist, so no worries. We will be back when we’re in Cincinnati again.

    We loved the ambience and the whole vibe including the massive living wall similar to one in the brewery. We ordered fries for appetizer and they seemed to come faster than expected - like minutes after we ordered. They were warm but not hot. They were quite tasty with the correct amount of salt. My daughter liked their food. One is vegan and had the crispy tofu. This dish look very good although I've not ever been known to order a strictly vegan dish myself. My other daughter had a the double cheeseburger. I tried this and it was very flavorful and juicy. It would be nice for this to come in a single patty option. She loved it but simply couldn't finish it. My pork shank was tasty and the beans side matched well with it. However, it was dry. That was a little disappointing because I saw other pork shanks coming out of the kitchen that looked very juicy. We usually do not order dessert because it is too difficult to find a vegan option and my other daughter has nut allergy, but I was just reviewing the menu and it turns out they do have desserts. These were not offered beyond the ask, "Do you need anything else?" That is not to say the service was not good; on the contrary, it was very good. I will go again. I have been a fan of their beer since taproom 1.0 and I can see lots of potential at the Alcove.

    Alcove by MadTreeResponded on July 26, 2022Hi Andrew! Thank you for the very specific feedback. You gave us some great notes that we can use to learn and get better. We can definitely do the burger with one patty! Thanks for your continued loyalty and we'll see you again soon.
