This isn't NEUF. ITS LALO.
Worst menu I've ever seen in cincinnati. They still have neuf signage everywhere. The bar has 7 bottles of randomness to serve you.
It was a joke. I wanted to leave the entire time.
Bip in bop:
Mexican rice, carrots, peas, corn, kimchee, pickled cabbage, pineapple merinated pork, kale. Served with spicy salsa....
Tasted like a drunk experiment.
Neuf downtown has moved! I went for my reservation to their location on Main St and it was now called Lalo's! They told me at Lalo's that Neuf will eventually be reopening somewhere on Court St. I had no idea, so we ate at Lalos' which is Latin/Asian Fusion. I like this concept but the food was just average. I had tempura fish tacos that seemed like fried fish and it was a bit tough.
We will definitely return to try more of the available dishes. We chose Neuf for its location close to the theater. We were surprised by how few guests there were; but that made for a very quiet atmosphere and very timely service. The spring rolls were hot and crisp: but not overly greasy. I had the beef stir fry and my wife had a chicken stir fry. Both were delicious and we each took quite a bit home to enjoy for lunch the next day. We were both very satisfied.
We were a large group of 9. Service with a smile. Food was amazing. I ordered the very drunken brisket noodle soup. Broth was so tasty and mast was so tender. I will be back. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Quiet place with excellent food and service.
Very enjoyable company. Food was excellent and service was superb.
Waiting for them to get a liquor license.
Food was great!!!
On downfall....the shady characters you run into on the way in and out.
Randomly found Neuf and was pleasantly surprised. Great food and very reasonably priced.
The eggplant sticks were to die for. I had the dumpling ramen which was also delicious. Portions are generous.
We gave Neuf a try Friday night and were glad we did. The atmosphere was upbeat, modern, and welcoming. Our server, Jay, was awesome. He did his best to explain some of the more creative dishes and made recommendations on specialties. He was fun and accommodating. Since Neuf is still securing their liquor license we were referred to Corkopolis nearby for some wine. The partnership these two establishments have compliment each other well. We tried a variety of starter dishes (dumplings!) and each of us got a different entree. The spice levels can be adjusted to your palate if needed. They even had some specials in addition to the main menu which was in itself fairly extensive. The best part was the value - we got a bunch of great food for a very reasonable price. I would recommend and will come back soon.
friendly service, BYOB, fresh tasting, perfectly seasoned,amazing food!
We found hair in both of our meals. Positively disgusting.
Food lacks depth of flavor, ramen broth in particular - Fresh rolls are fried. Would be good after imbibing for several hours, suspect that is the sweet spot for this restaurant.
We were asked to switch tables after having been seated; the waiter was very inattentive; the atmosphere was disjointed; the menu tried to have too many different types of cuisines; they do not serve alcohol; the food itself was nothing special, but was cheap. I will not go back.
Um, boo. I know they've only been open a short time, but they will need to fix issues quickly or they won't make 6 more months. My wife and I waited a good five minutes at the door. No "we'll be with you soon" or nod of acknowledgment. The guy finally asked if we had a reservation ( yes) and said "hang on let me clear a table. Came back and said "4"? (No). "Um, I cleared a 4-top". Did he expect us to sit with the couple behind us? (Dunno) So we sit, no menus. I forgot that they didn't have a liquor license yet so I ran across the street to pick up a bottle of wine. Came back.....guy had just brought menus. That was 10 minutes easy my wife sat there with no drink offer or menu. The food was poorly cooked, bland and good for take out after a bad night of drinks, at best. After we were halfway thru the meal they kept walking over with food, " who got the edamame ?" "Did you guys order fried rice?" So, bad staff service too. Matter of fact the staff was worse than the bad food. Can't think of a redeeming thing....maybe the music: 70's
The dumplings were doughy and the calamari was only so-so. The beef special with brown rice was pretty good (somewhat authentic but only for someone who knows real Chinese/Asian food). Also noted no asian customers. Service was very good.
Overall very casual/ younger crowd.
Tasty food and excellent service
The jasmine rice was very dry and bland. The chicken mango orange stir fry was nice but not very flavorful. Music and ambiance was great. Service was great! Reasonably priced.
Went on New year's eve. The food was amazing and I will be back for that. However, the service left something to be desired. They were friendly, but seemed understaffed, like they didn't expect to be as busy as they were. I'm willing to over look that, because again, the food was delicious. Not many places you can find already vegan items. Loved it!
Food was inconsistent from dish to dish, ranging from "eh" to "yum." Noodle dish seemed to have been sitting a while before delivery to the table. Also, the drug deal transpiring two feet away on the other side of the front window did nothing for the experience.
Fantastic Food, but it seems they're still getting set up. Service was spotty and it seemed understaffed.
Delightful time! Friendly, intelligent staff. Was glad for byob option and no corking fee was nice. Have already recommended to friends and family. Value priced, tasty food.
We'll be back!
The food wasn't bad, but the quality was meh; also, we didn't like the tea. The service was friendly but the waiter kept making mistakes with our order and forgetting our requests.
Super experience. This is a new place just a stone's throw from the Aronoff and a great place for a casual but high quality Pre-show dinner
The food is delicious and very reasonably priced. Our server was welcoming, helpful, and suitably attentive without being annoying. The decor is spare but just right for simple and tasty food. I hope Neuf is very successful as a new and needed addition to our downtown Cincinnati dining choices. I live and work downtown and will dine here often.
Very pleasantly surprised. Was not expecting much when we walked in, but both the food and the service were outstanding.
Went on a gift certificate from my hip 20 something Nephew. I was shocked how good the food was. I'm still dreaming about the zucchini fries!! And the BBQ ribs were sublime. Everything was amazing except the Bipimbop. I should state, however, that they said on the menu it was a variation. It was good. It just didn't come out steaming like I'm used to.
If you're dining on a budget, you'll be please to know you can bring your own bottle of wine! For casual dining, this is gonna be a go to place for us from now on!
We loved Huit so had to try their new restaurant - Neuf on 7th. We made reservations for the Friday after Tday before the tree lighting on the square. John, was our server and was fantastic - attentive and a great sense of humor. The food was very tasty although the edamame needed some more flavor. The zucchini appetizer had great flavor though. Stir fry was probably the best value for the money. We had a party of 6 and all would go again!
Brand new spot in CBD. Attentive service from waiter. He was also cool & personable. Food was delish and great value. Plenty leftovers from this Sat lunch visit. Will be back to dine in or takeouts.
We needed a quick dinner before a show at Playhouse in the Park and chose Neuf as it was available. We walked in and were a bit skeptical as it was completely empty, not a soul on a Saturday night. Brushing that aside, we realized that the restaurant was brand new and had not yet secured a liquor license. The people and service was great. My husband had a mango salad and cornish hens. The salad was a great start. The cornish hens a bit of a disappointment as he felt they needed a bit more seasoning. I had the Salt and Pepper eggplant as an appetizer - which was delicious. I've had dreams about it since eating it. I then had a chicken rice bowl which was also good, especially after adding ginger soy sauce. Overall a pleasant experience and the value was great.
Great service and could accommodate a group of 12. Didn't see that it was BYO until we arrived, but there was a store across the street that had some beer and wine. No corking fee was a nice touch. Would definitely go back.
This place is good but not great . We decided to go here because the other restaurants on Vine street had an hour wait. The staff was very friendly.
We had read about this place and it met our expectations, kind of a funky-rustic atmosphere. We started with a great appetizer spring roll, with very a tasty sauce. Pulled pork was excellent over rice, peanut chicken with dark, balsamic sauce on skewers was also very good, beef brisket with the slaw was #3 in terms of best items, as it had some fat and grizzle in it. We would go again!
Went on a Friday evening- busy but not crazy. Girls night out for me is pretty rare and eating here was a good choice! We had great food in a creative atmosphere. Will definitely eat here again!
I've been here a few times and had a good experience. This time, the dining room had a ton of flies. The front door was open allowing bugs to get in. The goat dish was so tough, the manager switched the meal butdidnt both to compt it.
The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. The food was amazing!!
Food is always wonderful every time we go, and great value! Menu is very reasonably priced. We had
This was my third visit to Huit, but first time for dinner. It was delicious! I wanted to get the Very Drunken Pork Noodles, but it was too hot outside for soup, so I discovered they have a version with rice and it was just as yummy. The dumplings are a must as a starter. It was also nice to be able to BYOB. And last, but not least, our server was terrific. He was knowledgeable and fun without pushing it and could read our personalities in order to chat and have a good time. I highly recommend Huit!
Food is unique and excellent. Much more than just barbecue. Both times I've been was on a Saturday and it wasn't crowded, which was nice but surprising given how much everyone in our group loved the food. The cost of entrees is so reasonable, especially considering how generous the portion sizes are.
I had the beef brisket sliders. They were good over all, the slaw was fantastic, but it needed some sort of fatty moisturizing aioli or juice or something. Meat was dry for brisket. Partner had Pork over rice bowl - rich and full of flavor. Also tried the dumplings/pot-stickers. Dough was nice and crispy in places but thick and slightly undercooked in others. Filling and sauce was good.
Service was great. Music playing was lots of fun. Court Street is quiet so nice for eating outside. Will go back again to try something else.
