The service and quality of the food was on par with the Jeff Ruby experience. Just outstanding. This restaurant is a great place to dine with family and friends.

It was great to sit in on the roof with friends and enjoy a yummy meal. I am from the Netherlands and my friends are from Belgium so we really loved the Dutch dishes. Everything was super yummy and just how we remembered if from growing up. We will definitely go back.

Food is as great. Service seemed poorly trained. Not service you’d expect at fine dining.

The food was very very good service fair. It was our 5th anniversary and with most restaurants there would be some acknowledgement or a complimentary dessert. No mention by the staff or management. All and all I didn’t leave dissatisfied but not wowed at all.

This was the second time we have visited Lisse. We came for our anniversary in 2019 and liked it so much we came here again. We would come more often, but it is definitely higher-end (and WORTH it) thus, the establishment is only special occasions for us. Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable, able to answer any questions we had and made suggestions based on personal preferences. My wife had the 8 oz filet and I had the 10 oz (which I loved even better than the strip I had last year). The whole experience was a delight from the ambience to the taste of the food salad, entree, and dessert. We will definitely be returning in the future. Thanks for a great date night!

One of my top 2 favorite restaurants in all of America. From the moment you arrive to the time to depart, the staff are always positive, engaging, knowledgeable, warm, friendly, and attentive.

Got the earliest reservation and chose the outdoor option since this is only the second time we've been in a restaurant in 6 months. We thankfully had the patio to ourselves until the very end. We felt very safe in limiting our exposure. It was chilly, but we brought enough layers. When we left, the dining room was full, which would've been unnerving for us being that exposed to that many other unmasked people. Thankfully, our roof top experience was the perfect way to fine-dine without exposure to COVID. Best date nite all year!

I ordered their signature steak. It was awful. The worst $50 steak I’ve ever had. My wife ordered a filet and it was only okay. The waitress and staff and the manhattans were great, but we won’t be back. Too many other good steak restaurants in the Cincinnati area.

Our dinner at Lisse was wonderful. The food and service was well worth the trip. The décor was lacking as this building is an old brick building in Covington and with the Holland theme, I wish it felt more European and not as modern, but overall don't let this deter your decision to have a nice dinner!

Booked a reservation for my sister’s 21st on the rooftop. The hostess called the day before and offered us a table in the “private dining room” and which was nice. The table ended up being by the kitchen door and the restaurant didn’t acknowledge or wish my sister a happy birthday, much less offer anything. Definitely disappointed that we chose Lisse for a special occasion...

First time to Lisse for an anniversary dinner. Great experience. The staff recommended the Tomahawk steak special and a great wine pairing. Everything was delicious and cooked perfectly to our order of medium-rare.
The restaurant was comfortable, well lit, and spacious enough for private conversation. Will definitely be returning.

Food and service were fine. The ambiance offers a minimalist approach that comes off as clinical at best. Warm the place up in terms of lighting and decor, and Lisse is a home run.

Visiting on business from out of town, first visit to Lisse. While you can't control the weather, fortunately when reservation made a month in advance, outdoor (rooftop) seating requested as the weather was perfect for outdoor dining.

One of the best steaks I ever had although my colleague and I ordered the same steak and both medium rare, his came out medium and mine closer to rare but quite frankly was what I wanted.

Neither of us had Hutspot but will definitely get it again!

My husband and I visited Lisse for the first time to
celebrate our 28th anniversary. The food was amazing as was the service. Our server,Jocelyn, was great!

We were fortunate enough to have the entire rooftop to ourselves. I was surprised that the noise was minimal even though the restaurant is located in the middle of the city.

I highly recommend Lisse!

This steakhouse was worth the visit for the unique cuisine - not many Dutch options in our area. Our steaks were cooked perfectly, and we enjoyed the hutspot and the gouda mac for our sides. The rooftop was lovely on a weeknight, and we were sat at a two-top that could view the Cincy skyline. I know KY allows smoking by vendor, but was not a fan that this place allowed it - there was a cigar party at the table over and it was nauseating. I was also confused as to the server pooling - not typical of a steakhouse that classifies itself as fine dining in my experience - this made for inconsistent service. I would definitely try this place again, as the ambience of our first experience is why I wouldn't give it 5 stars.

Service was very bad. Brought our main course and forgot about our salad. Specifically asked that old fashioned not be made sweet and it came out very sweet. Had to send it back. Asked if we were ready for the check without asking for dessert which we wanted. Very very slow service. This was our third time at this restaurant and the service was excellent the other times. Food was great as always but the service was very bad. We were celebrating a special occasion and it was disappointing to have this experience. Don’t think we will be back.
