Our dinner was excellent! The rooftop is so relaxing and the view is fun! I highly recommend the burger, fish and chips and the filet mignon. No need to worry about social distancing as the Gaslight Bar and Grill has it mastered! Go out for dinner, relax and enjoy this neighborhood gem!

Loved the rooftop. Beet and goat cheese appetizer was great, lamb pops were amazing, salmon was good. A lot of street noise. Our waitress was very good. She could have been a little more attentive but I certainly understand giving diners their space. We’ll be back!

Great service and delicious food. We requested to eat on rooftop but that was full but we able to sit by the wall that opens up so there was plenty of fresh air and it felt like we were sitting outside. t

Though it has many good recommendations, we did not have a good experience. Restaurant wasn’t clean, as in there were lots of bugs and crumbs in the windowsill. We moved to a different table so I didn’t have to look at it. At the new table there was a small clump of hair stuck to the back of the bench seat. The food was average but the service was really slow and the waiter was not good. I asked for a cocktail with whiskey in it and it’s not one that the bartender knew how to make. It took nearly 15 minutes to get a drink. The waiter said he had to look it up since I ordered some thing that wasn’t on the menu. But, we clearly saw the bartender chatting with a customer for at least 10 minutes before making my drink. We left hungry and disappointed.

Food was not that good.. could’ve made the same stuff at home easily. Asked for our burger medium and it came well done. Why do restaurants ask how you want your burger and then not follow your instruction 🙄 anyways.. it was fiiiine. Overpriced for how basic their food is. Waaaay better places to eat in Cincy.

Big crowd @ 6 p.m. prior to UC BB game. Very noisy but they did try to accommodate us by putting us at corner table.

went to the Gaslight before a concert at the Ludlow Garage. It is super convenient for that. The food selection was good. The bruschetta appetizer was very good. Our portions were hearty. We did however all noticed as the place filled up the noise level significantly. It became a little hard to hold a conversation. Our server was excellent. She made a few recommendations and was attentive without being pushy. Prices are moderate. However it would be hard for a couple to get out of there for under $80 if you have drinks and an appetizer with your entree.

The food is always good but on a cold Saturday, the butternut squash soup and grilled cheddar and apple sandwich were perfect. Fun to sit next to the window and watch Ludlow Ave. pass by!

Thought about giving Gaslight 5 stars overall and 5 for food, although decided 4 stars is more appropriate. The food is really wonderful considering the price, and the ambiance and service are wonderful. We have eaten here a couple of times before shows at the Ludlow Garage and will definitely eat here again when we are in the neighborhood.

I have now been to the Gaslight 3 times. First time was on the upstairs deck. It was quite nice but I wish they had designed it so that you could see over the railing to people watch. We had some small plates and the food was pretty good. Second time I had the roasted potato soup and risotto in the restaurant. It can get kind of loud but that seems to be the norm around here. The ambiance is lovely, lots of windows. The food was awesome. The third time I had the soup again (it is that good) and the caeser salad. There was more dressing than salad and so much garlic that it burned my mouth. Couldn't taste anything else. So will I go again, for that potato soup I will.

I enjoyed the relaxed feel of this place and the personable service we received! The burgers are delicious, as was the pork tenderloin. However, the larger portion of pork was not cooked all the way through. The rest of the meal was delicious and the marshmallow bread pudding dessert made up for it! Overall a very nice atmosphere and staff!

We liked it overall but it was a bit loud, our server could have been a bit more personable, and the portions were rather small. But the food was good, the location was nice, and I liked that the space used to be a library. They should make more of that angle. It’s so convenient to the Esquire too.

Very nice atmosphere, good service. I had the fish and chips which was just OK. The fries seemed to be bottom of the batch, small pieces some burnt. I have had better fish, it was good, not great.

Of the four of us, two had meals were OK. The other two were not good. The service was pleasant, but very slow. One member of our party ordered salmon, medium rare, and emphasized that if the kitchen couldn't prepare it that way he would rather order something else. Waiter assured us that woiuld be possible. It came overdone. Another member of our party ordered fish and chips and it came with mediocre chips (a bit mushy) and highly breaded fish. Not good at all. We won't risk taking our guests there again.
