What a fabulous experience. From the moment we're greeted at the door we feel like royalty visiting somewhere else. What an atmosphere in the dining room. Expert wait staff, and the absolute finest food in Cincinnati - and that's a high bar given the alternatives available. Go with the the 3 (or 2) course menu and wine pairings for an unbelievable taste experience. Not something we can afford very frequently but we get there for the big events.

Jean-Robert defines elegant dining in his several venues across town. Restaurant's impeccable service is utterly unobtrusive and the servers are well-informed. We have dined there on several occasions, both in the restaurant and in the bar, and have come away pleased. This time we opted for the 2-course dinner with pairings, and while the food itself was well-prepared it was not the perfection we had come to known. The wine pairings, though, were superb, as were the selection of in-house pastries for dessert.

An awesome menu. Perfect setting. Brilliant presentation. Great tasting dinner. Fabulous wait staff. And...all of that plus Jean Robert de Cavel in the kitchen. I could not ask for more, but I did...all of this in a very friendly. "non-stuffy" atmosphere. PERFECT!
Put this winner on your restaurant "bucket list" for sure!

L has an attention to detail that is unmatched in the tri-state area. Outside of NYC, there are few places that I've seen that can execute to this level of perfection. Every detail of the dinning experience, from the grand bar and service, to the entry of the magnificent dinning room, to dinning service - all done with grace and flawless delivery. No detail in the dinning experience is trivialized. The thoughtfulness is seen throughout a perfectly choreographed experience. Their attention to GF was outstanding. I'm grateful to have this set of amazing restaurateurs in Cincinnati that can have this level of execution.

Thank you, team L for another wonderful experience.

Having had superb dining experiences in the past, there is not much more to say except it is still superb. Service, food, and ambiance continue to be in the top tier in Cincinnati. For a very special evening at, by the quality standard of the restaurant, a very reasonable price, one could not find a better place to dine.
We will go back often.

First time there, met a friend for lunch.
Was offered the Friday express lunch in the lounge so we decided on that. First course was soup or salad and second course was a Pho burger or chicken crepes for $12.
Delicious!! Will go back again for dinner.

What a gem in red neck Cincinnati, the place is somptuous, the service perfect although a bit too fast, they wanted to close early, with just three tables that evening. The show is the inventive food of the French chef, at the level of a star Michelin if the inspectors knew where Cincinnati was! A bemol to this otherwise perfect evening: the wine pairing done with perfectly low quality boring wines. Not acceptable for such gorgeous food.
