    The music was a little too loud. The sushi menu was not available which took a lot of options away from us. The entrees and service were excellent.

    First time we ate here about a yr ago, the food was yummy all around...but the next 2 times, including this last time...not so much. Particularly the Halibut. We love this fish, but last 2 visits it just wasn't the same as first time. Our server was AMAZING...very friendly, attentive.... until she brought the check without asking if we would like dessert.

    Food was excellent. Ambiance was so so, too bright and “sterile. Waiter was slow, inattentive and forgetful. Forgot our salad and the entree’s came out. Had to remind him. Didn’t get the salad with the dressing on the side. No spoon or waste dish for the shells. Forgot to bring my 2nd beer…..it was on ice. Really good food, just need to level up the wait staff.

    I ordered the beets & goat cheese salad. It felt more like a brussel sprout salad. It had a weird dressing. Although my friend pointed it out after it was served and I expressed how I didn't like it, it just didn't hit me how I would like it. It had a smoky dressing. Everyone else loved their food. Seafood Fettucine was wonderful.

    Generous portions of expertly cooked very fresh seafood. Great service. Staightforward, unpretentious food done well. Tables spaced well to allow conversation. My only tiny complaint was a trace of grit in one of my oysters and the horseradish did not have much punch.

    Nice atmosphere but almost too quiet since very few other diners were there and there was no music/sound system. It is a costly meal but very good and sufficient quantity.

    Everything was outstanding. The Spicy Pineapple Margaritas were refreshing, with a crisp bite that paired nicely with the calamari appetizer. The Mediterranean Seafood Stew was one of the best dishes I've had in a very long time. The flavor was incredible. I did sneak a couple bites of my wife's Diver Scallops and my daughter's Seafood Fettucine, and although not as good as the stew, they were phenomenal as well. We finished off the evening with an order of the Pistachio Gelato and the Mango Guava Gelato. Sweet and light, they were the perfect end to a delicious seafood dinner. Lastly, the service and the atmosphere is top notch. From the hostess to the servers to the bartenders, everyone had a smile on their face and seemed genuinely appreciative that we were dining with them. They've also got really cool wallpaper in the restrooms.

    The price of the entrees was a bit higher than I expected. Opentable has the restaurant listed as $$ when it should be $$$. Most of the entrees were above $30 and some were above $40. I asked for a second glass of wine and it was going to be delivered as we were looking for our check. I doubt we will return.

    Fantastic first time experience! A gorgeous evening eating outside. We started with the Smoked Fish Charcutrie which was excellent. Not your typical charcutrie with cheese and meats and we will definitely order again. Next on to one of the best caeser salads which is easily split between 2. I had the crispy char which was perfectly cooked, and others at the table had sea bass and prime hanger steak and everything cooked perfectly and enjoyed. Meals met met my varied dietary restrictions (kosher style and gluten free). I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    My wife and I had a great time celebrating my birthday at OFH. The food was excellent and the server was a wonderful woman. It seemed to take a little long getting our food (45 minutes for the sushi roll) but maybe they were short staffed and worth the wait. We definitely plan to go back as it was our first time there and a great find. Thank you!

    We were met at the door with a smiling face. Our server was Cara and she was top notch. She had a smile and was very knowledgeable about everything on the menu. The food was delicious. I had sushi and diver scallops and my husband had a crab cake and spicy seafood fettuccine. The food was hot and plated so beautifully. We are keeping this on our list of go to places in Cincinnati.

    The restaurant has a cool contemporary vibe and serves great mussels which four people shared as an appetizer. The halibutsand chilean sea bass were great and there was no trouble making one dinner gluten and dairy free. Parking is very difficult on Oakley Square--especially on a rainy evening when you don't want to have to walk too far. The food was saltier than it needed to be. But overall, I'd recommend it

    Waited over 10 minutes at the host station to be greeted and then it went downhill from there. Ordered Sushi as a appetizer. Sushi and salads were delivered at the same time. Sushi was just OK and $20 a roll. Beet salad was overdressed and mostly Brussels sprouts, very few beets and no flavor. Entrees were delivered while we were still eating our salads so we did that awkward dance of holding dishes while they were trying to land our entrees. Halibut was overcooked and so salty it was inedible. Mediterranean stew was more like a curry with cashews. Fish was so overcooked it ate like chicken and the mussels were closed up tight, practically holding signs, “Don’t eat me, I’ve been dead for a very long time.” We joked at one point, do you think they are going to ask us if we want dessert and deliver that, too? The table next to us were extremely vocal about their lack of satisfaction. They sent back a cocktail and then later sent back 3 out of 4 entrees because they were super salty. They complained loudly about the prices and the lack of quality. The manager crouched down to have a private conversation with the loudest of the group offering to get her something else. A futile attempt to contain the situation given they were so loud we couldn’t carry on a conversation at our table without being drowned out. As far as rushed serviced, we appreciate that restaurants have been hit hard during the pandemic and need to turn tables. Not surprisingly there were a number of empty tables in the restaurant so this situation wasn’t a matter of trying to max out a Saturday service. We just wanted to get the heck out of there, so when our server finally emerged we asked for the bill and for our half-full bottle of wine to be bagged so we could take it with us. She handled us a paper to go bag, not exactly the recorking experience you’d expect. I guess that sums up the entire experience - not exactly what you’d hope for given the cost.

    We were really excited at the prospect of a new seafood place in the tristate, and had seen this put out as an alternative to Mitchell’s Fish Market, which is now closed. It’s not. It seems to have an Asian-fusion vibe with a substantial sushi/sashimi menu and a limited seafood menu. We sat a good ten minutes before being greeted, and we were not alone in that experience. They were understaffed on Mother’s Day and one server was obviously clueless. Job duties seemed ambiguous. A good manager would do wonders for them as tables were unbussed and cleaning supplies left on those that were bussed. That said, a lovely young woman stepped up and took us on even though we weren’t in her section and she was fabulous. Others weren’t so lucky. (We saw an eight-top leaving on our arrival.) Once you get your order in, everything seems to be pretty good. The food arrived in timely and ordered fashion, and was substantial in portion size and was served steaming hot. My wife had the crab ravioli, I the seafood chowder, and we shared a calamari, spread of raw oysters and a Caesar salad. The salad featured actual anchovies (listed on the menu so no surprise) and baked Parmesan you crumble yourself - a nice touch if you’re pirtioningbor prefer a specific taste. The dressing wasn’t overpowering either - another nice touch. The oysters were fresh, chilled and delicious, served with cocktail sauce, lemon wedge and horseradish. The Calimari was a week point - it came in preprocessed strips, but was still tasty. The entrees were delicious. Her lobster ravioli came in a bisque sauces and was topped with generous lumps of crab. My chowder was cream-based, but less soupy and entirely protein-based with shrimp, scallops and chunks of meaty fish. And as mentioned, it came out piping hot. All in all, if you’re up for a slight adventure and can make the best of one, a good choice as they continue to work out the kinks.
