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.

Very nice place, mostly good service with a couple small hiccups, I do understand entree's were ala carte, but a bit small for the price.

Excellent staff, refreshing cocktails and wonderful flavor. Small menu but most likely because of Covid-19.

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.

Excellent night out on the rooftop. My wife and I had a perfectly cooked ribeye along with salads, sides, drinks, and desert. Everything was perfect including the service. Thank you Lisse!

Our first time trying this restaurant. Had heard good things from friends. Were on rooftop which was noisy and there were smokers. Server was nice but not attentive. Steak was undercooked and when asked to cook more was told that they couldn’t due to Covid- which we understood. They took our plate and came back after 25 minutes with a piece that was 1/3 the size of the piece they took away. At that point, we really didn’t want it. The assistant manager had a bit of an attitude and offered to box it up to go. No apologies or offer of a coffee or anything else to make up for the situation. Will not return! There are so many other great places to dine that offer a better customer experience.

Anniversary dinner on outside rooftop terrace. Beautiful view of other roof tops and downtown Cincinnati. Had the place to ourselves due to COVID. Employees wear masks and customers too unless at table. Great food and service!!

We enjoyed a date night at Lisse. The food was amazing- we ordered salmon, halibut, steak and Brussel sprouts (yes, we ordered 3 meals for 2 of us)! We would highly recommend this restaurant. The view is really nice also!

The steaks were wonderful! The Brussel sprouts were a little under-cooked but that may have been the intent rather than an issue. And it feels wrong to focus on that -- the steaks were so good, perfectly cooked. We will be back!

This was our second time to Lisse and it did not quite live up to our first experience. Slow service, not especially attentive (is, drinks running empty). Charcuterie starter was very heavy on cheese and not much meat to accompany. Entries were very tasty.

Lisse's food (particularly the steaks) is excellent and the service is even better. The restaurant ambiance is quiet and tasteful and is a great place to go if you want to actually talk to the people you are with. There are many seating options - we always sit at a table in the bar but the dining room is really nice and they have a great rooftop seating area as well. We go there just about once a week because we like it so much!

We had another wonderful experience at Lisse Steakhuis to celebrate our anniversary! Our server Loren went above and beyond expectations. The chef uses some kind of magic because all of our food was incredible! You must try the Rembrandt or Dutch Fillet (omg Bearnaise sauce, too) - it will blow you away! The bitterballen takes me back to my time in The Netherlands and it's honesty my favorite of the appetizers. If you are a cheese lover of any kind I also highly suggest the Charcuterie Board and Dutch Mac & Cheese. We love dining at Lisse and will continue to return.

We dined with a group of 8 and tried apps, salads, steaks and items from the Indo Dutch section of the menu and all were fabulous, especially the Dry-Aged Compound Butter
on top of the The Rembrandt, the 10 oz barrel cut filet. Service was flawless, and the restaurant was beautiful and immaculate, with all staff wearing masks and appropriate spacing among the tables. Dank je!

Liked Lisse. We choose a bad night for rooftop dining because it was so hot. Service was attentive but somethings we wanted (beer primarily) were not available. I liked pork chop and the sides. We will be back again.

This was our first time but certainly will not be our last. We started with the shrimp cocktail. It was nice but a bit pricey for 4 shrimp. I had the Bone-in-Ribeye Oscar and a baked potato while my wife had The Van Gogh and baked potato. Both of our steaks were cooked perfectly delicious and our potatoes were light and fluffy. We ended our dinner with the Vanilla Bean Creme Brulee and it was the perfect ending. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive. We were seated on the balcony and I highly recommend this if the weather is conducive. I would give this 4 1/2 stars.

I have dined at Lisse several times before, and am happy everytime I leave. I went out on a limb and tried something from their Indo Dutch menu (instead of my typical steak) and LOVED it!!

Overall very good - service was excellent. Food was generally very good, but the Brussels sprouts and broccoli were both slightly undercooked. The ribeye, filet, and salmon were all excellent, the New York Strip was very tasty but fairly tough around the edges. I will return, just wouldn't order the strip again.
