Great food, one of the better steaks I’ve ever had. Great food for an even better price for what you get. Mac n Cheese was a good choice also

Roasted chicken breast was outstanding! The spring roll appetizer was also delicious, even my husband agrees and he is not a fan of spring rolls typically. The mac and cheese is a must try!

This is a quiet dining option. Although they have TVs in the bar area, they keep the volume down. The server was friendly and attentive. The wine list is exceptional and they use large glasses for the reds. We had the small filets. They were cooked to perfection and delicious. We did not order any toppings for the steaks. A good steak can stand on its own. …which was the case here. Everything ordered tasted great, from appetizers to dessert.

Had a very nice date night with my wife. A cozy quiet restaurant in the middle of Main Straus. Beer and wine menu was great, attentive service staff and a perfectly cooked steak all added up to a very pleasant dining experience. I ordered my dessert to go and unfortunately the cake was stale, had I bit into it at the restaurant I would have sent it back. In spite of that I still give this place 5 stars and plan on going back.

I took my out of town friend here and the food was delicious but we ended up being way over dressed, so note that this is a very casual restaurant. Our service was outstanding and the food was also great. I look forward to eating here again!

Really good food in a very pleasant atmosphere. Good spacing between tables and some soft decorative touches make it easy to converse without raising your voice. Steaks were absolutely perfect. None better anywhere! Attentive wait staff.

This was a return trip for us after being away for over a year & we were most definitely satisfied with our evening. From cocktails to the Lump Crab & Shrimp Salad and on to the Flounder, everything was delicious. Add in Emily’s friendly greeting and the excellent service we received and we couldn’t have asked for a more prefect evening.

All of the food we had was fantastic with the exception of my strip steak which I ordered medium rare and it came out blue the first time and barely rare after they took it back to reheat. The manager was great and comped us for the experience. However, I would expect a steakhouse to be able to perfect a steak. My girlfriend got a filet that was nicely cooked though.

We had a great experience here. Erin, our sever is very personable, helpful with menu selection description & was able to give some background on the owners farm where some of the produce & beef comes from. Being a hobby farmer myself I really enjoyed that. The food was wonderful. Prices were what I expected for that type of dining. I'll be back for sure!

At first, I thought the place might be German, but here's the description: "Dutch Inspired American Made Steakhuis in the heart of the beautiful Mainstrasse Village of Covington KY."

This place, overall, quite possibly exceeds the experiences a hungry carnivore will have at Morton's, Ruth's Chris, and Eddie Merlot's. Moreover, the experience and VALUE exceeds our local king of prime meat, Jeff Ruby.

Now, to decode that, any of Ruby's steak restaurants will offer a slightly better steak at perhaps a 40% price premium. But, Lisse has much to offer, and it is, relatively, a bargain.

Now, for a bit of a description of the ambiance: When you enter, you see a beautiful and airy expanse painted in natural light from the picture windows on two sides of the building; there's a Dutch-modern bar with a long rich red quartz bartop to your right, with high-top tables along a center "old" brick wall with the main dining room at left. The entire first floor is reminiscent of modern Dutch or Scandinavian decors you may have seen -- open, minimalist, and surprisingly intimate all at the same time.

There's a "conference center" for larger groups or meetings on the second floor and even outdoor seating on balconies. I would imagine the view would be breathtaking considering the restaurant is in the heart of Covington's German-themed Mainstrasse.

We started off with an item my German grandmother used to make, pea soup. This was the real deal. Absolutely delicious. I had the Greenhouse Salad. The dressing was delicate and flavorful.

We both had the 8 oz. filets. My wife had the Dutch Filet, an 8oz Filet, w/Beef Gravy @ $44, and I had the Van Gogh 8oz Barrel Cut Filet+Oscar @ $55.

We shared a huge baked potato and "Lightly Charred & Glazed" carrots.
For our final course, we ordered a "Boterkoek" (sounds like "butter cake") which looks like a piece of pie and takes like a warm butter cookie w/Lisse's vanilla ice cream. Wow!

All in $201.93. Our highest compliment: Repeatable.
