Went there for after-theater dinner on a Thursday night, and pretty much had the place to ourselves. Excellent and attentive service, great food - as always.
All 4 dishes were subpar. “Special” Bockfest menu should mean that those dishes are served in a controlled environment so that everything tastes it’s best. Not the case. We’ve frequented Arnold’s since the early 80’s & food has never been their strong suit, but dare I say it’s gotten even worse. Think we’ll continue to appreciate the nostalgia and atmosphere at Arnold’s consuming only alcohol. Disappointing that a Cincinnati staple can’t do better than this.
Bockfest not expected. Very busy, loud and food was fair, not its usual. This happened during garlicfest last year.
Will be more aware of festivals before making reservations.
Family get together. We had a blast. Our server was great. Can’t wait to go back.
Arnold's is one of our favorites and this visit didn't disappoint.
We frequently dine at Arnold’s. It never disappoints.
Spaghetti and meatballs was it’s usually delish. And vegan burger gulped down. Excellent
It was good food just before the Aronoff show. Noise level was very high; so it was difficult to have a conversation, but that would be difficult to fix I suspect.
My clothes smelled so bad after eating there.
We loved Arnold’s and cannot wait to go back!
Cute, casual and delicious!
The cinnamon bun bread pudding was to die for! 🤤
Our server, Megan, was the best! Very knowledgeable of the menu. Her recommendations were perfect. I had Steak and Frites. This was our first visit. We will return...and I might have to get Steak and Frites again.
It was good. Waitress great. I’ve been going for years so know what I like!
The music was so fantastic. We wished we could have stayed longer. Atmosphere in the courtyard is awesome. We’ll be back!
Our waitress was a dud . No personality and we had a fun group of people dining .
Great spot for lunch. Quick service, good food, and lots of interesting pieces of art and history to view.
I went here for dinner before a show and came back afterwards for drinks. It is a funky little place with great food and menu options, the drinks are delicious and everyone was friendly and attentive.
After getting seated and waiting for 15 minutes with no service, the manager came over an apologized profusely, picked up our meal and gave us a gift card!
Great way to treat customers and we will come back.
Bluegrass band was fun and the kids enjoyed the vibe before we went to lion king. Food was solid.
Really went above and beyond to fix a mistake.
It’s always a wonderful
Went when my mom, grandma, and BFF for dinner before seeing the lion king. It’s casual, quirky, and delicious
Had dinner after seeing Lion King at the Aronoff. We all enjoyed it very much.
Definitely recommend the deep fried pretzel and pimento cheese. Could of used a bit more salt on the pretzel, but even without it it was wonderful.
Thanks for a fun night.
Arnold’s is our new place for NYE! The Hot Magnolias played fantastic, as usual. Rhonda made sure we had a great night. Staff is fantastic! Food is excellent!
Food was great. Where are seated makes all the difference. We went on new years eve and ended up in a small room upstairs with other couples. We didn't mind it, but courtyard seating would have been a world of difference so plan accordingly. Also they did not serve off the regular menu that night so that was unexpected but possibly poor planning on my part.
I had not been here in years and it might be years before I head back. Food was just ok but the cost dropped this a star. Way too expensive for the quantity and quality. A $14+ burger should be a meal, not a skinny thing I ate in 4 bites. It should come with both fries and potato salad (a very good potato salad btw). Rest of our meals were fine. Nothing great. The only thing that stood out was the service. I might be back for drinks but dinner is unlikely.
First time at Arnold's and what a great experience! Truffle Chicken was amazing. Greek Deluxe was equally good, according to my wife. Live music, great service. We'll definitely be back!
Really enjoyed the atmosphere, food, waitstaff and band, Cold Cuts. We'll be back! Thanks
We typically eat outside on the patio but were inside this time. It was actually a really nice change. John, our server, was fabulous. I got the Greek spaghetti but next time I'm getting the traditional...I ate some off my friend's plate and it was to-die-for!
Good food good service
We were at a large round table by a door that was super close to the table next to us. It was extraordinarily loud and tight.
The food was fantastic but if it’s always that loud, I won’t go back.
I love Arnold's, I've been going here for 40 years. We were looking for a comfortable place with great food, and quiet enough to have a conversation. Arnold's was perfect, and the piano player in the courtyard was a wonderful "extra".
It was a first visit for my sister-in-law and I am confident it won't be her last.
The food was not good. I ordered a hamburger and the pork soup. The burger was no better than a Burger King burger and the soup was bad... no pork in the pork soup. Green broth with a few potatoes and a green been... it was very disappointing. My date ordered their Greek pasta and indicated it was not as good as it used to be. The drinks were TINY and EXPENSIVE. I’ll won’t be back.
Atmosphere was super. Food was very good.
I haven't been to Arnold's in many years. That was a mistake - this place is such a Cincinnati gem! I will be back again soon!
Great food! Great music!
We went to Arnold’s unaware that their was a music festival happening. We were seated in the courtyard so things got loud quickly. We had to ask a manager if we had a server since we were not waited on for 10 minutes after being seated. We were compensated but it set a bad tone for the meal.
Ballet & date night. It was most enjoyable.
Always enjoy my visits to Arnold’s.
