    Our dinner was good. Was a little slow to start and drinks were delayed coming out. As the night progresses and there were less people in the restaurant it got better.

    It was fine but the menu seems less creative than it was before with more small plates and the Banks location seems a little cold compared to Hyde Park. Still good and great service

    I love E&O Hyde Park and thought I would feel the same here at The Banks. I was wrong. My 21 year old daughter and I got there and the music was SO loud. We had a reservation and luckily there was a table outside. The music was still loud but not as bad as inside. The device was just ok. They forgot our soy sauce and I had to chase down our sever inside after waiting for 10 minutes to ask her to bring us some. There’s seemingly a water problem on the floor outside because it was all wet which was gross. I will eat the Hyde Park location again but I will not be back to this one.

    I had my first visit yesterday and I can't say enough great things about E+O! The sushi and sashimi were incredible. Excellent atmosphere, location, and service. I never do reviews, but they deserve it. Do not miss this place. If anyone asks for a sushi recommendation, E+O kitchen will be the only restaurant that I mention.

    Stopped in for lunch before heading to Paul Brown Stadium. The service is always good here. The tuna poke tower is a great starter big enough for four. We all got Buddha bowls and they were so good. The Bengal Crunch roll was good as well. Value is great. The decor is fresh and fun.

    This was my first time to EO at the Banks but have been to the Hyde Park location many times in the past. The food was great as normal but the service was not good. The restaurant was maybe at 30% capacity at 8:30PM on a Monday night and our server was non existent and rude when she approached our table. We ordered a second round of drinks and they waited on the bar for several minutes before we had to remind her to serve them. I'll go back to EO but hope to have better service the next time.
