    Absolutely loved this place! First time experience was amazing. Staff were very friendly and helpful explaining the menu. Drinks were amazing (huge selection), food was delicious, we ordered the sticky ribs to share and I got the dragon’s breath role (not as intimidating as it sounds). I loved the ambiance! Such a great place to check out for really any occasion. Will definitely be returning.

    I and my girlfriend come to E+O whenever we are craving something different or wanting to try some outlandish sushi. Each time we come back we have a hard time with the menu because everything is great! We still have more dishes to try after eating there a few times already. Great restaurant overall.

    Bengals vs. Baltimore. Location is excellent to the stadium and food was great! Service was slow, but pretty understandable with a standing room only! Fun place to have brunch and head to the game!

    I went on a game day for brunch and ordered their breakfast sandwich. I got the egg cooked sunny side up, but when I got the sandwich the egg whites were still very much raw. There was so much of the egg white that wasn't cooked that it was dripping and made the sandwich and my potatoes so soggy. Not a good experience especially given this was my first time there.

    Service was great! The entire staff was very kind and considerate. Food was wonderful, definitely a great price for what you get. However the drink prices are what I would expect in New York or LA not Cincinnati. I can go down the black and pay half of what I paid for a Titos and soda $17.00 each

    People had told us that Cincinnati was a "foodie" town and, after eating at E+O, we have to agree! The atmosphere is fun and energetic without being too noisy. Our server was so friendly and gave us great tips about the city. The food from the Bengal Cat sushi to the Goyza dumplings to the Key Lime pie was delicious! The value was outstanding as our four-dish meal for two with several cocktails came to under $120!

    We had a 6:00 reservation for 2. We were not seated until 7:00. We were told they could not seat a party of two at a four top. We watched a serious of walk in’s be seated ahead of us. They were business do to the Bengals game but they is why I mad a reservation. We will stick to the Hyde Park location. Dinner always goes well there.

    We had the Sesame Steak Tacos as a starter they were fantastic and flavorful! For our main course we both had the Gaucho Steak, the flavor was great and the steak was extremely tender . For dessert we had the Bailey's Pot Du Creme it was an wonderful finish to a great meal.

    First time and won't be the last! Staff was friendly and engaging without hovering. Zoe was wonderful as a server. Food and presentation was A+++ Only drawback are the bathrooms. Men's restroom has 1 stall and 1 urinal. Small for a restaurant of this size. Clean, but perhaps an air freshner can asssist with the strong odor?

    Great ambiance and vibe. I got the miso soup, a latte, lamb chops, and Brussels sprouts which were good, just a tad salty. Waitress was nice at first, but when suggesting food off the menu she cautioned me a few times that the sea bass was the “most expensive item on the menu” which didn’t sit well with me. After the food came out she didn’t check on our table once. And when I tried to wave her down in the restaurant she waved at me 2x before actually coming to the table to check on us. I wanted a knife to go with my lamb chops…
