    We were served our second course before finishing our first course. Otherwise, it was great. Please fine tune your timing.

    As I had heard, the Burgers are awesome! So is the Salmon. Our server was efficient and friendly. Open table was easy to use to arrange a time to meet up. My only complaint was the cost of the salads - by the time I buy the burger, the salad with quinoa, feta cheese and pistachios was too pricey for a side. I settled for french fries, which they cooked to order (no salt or seasoning). Maybe create a smaller version of that salad with a lower price point? ? It turns out that it would have been waaay too much food for the burger and that salad at the same time :) I will be back soon - the next time I dine in OTR.

    Loved, loved the lemon ricotta pancakes. Very good scrambled eggs. The pork belly was tough and undercooked (why can’t it just be high quality bacon?) It’s a little loud for table conversation, but I understand the desire for a hip vibe. It’s a good choice before Cincinnati Pops concerts.

    Develled eggs were amazing!! Wedge salad was very good and salmon in Brown butter was very tasty. My husband had the Mahi Rubin and said it could have been better, it was soggy and cold.

    Always good food. Great salmon, burgers, chicken Parmesan. Only disappointment tonight was timing between appetizers and entrees. We were still enjoying appetizer and drinks and our entrees appeared unusually quick. Next time we will order by course.

    Sacred Beast is our favorite restaurant jn the neighborhood. The steak tartare is to die for and my beau swears by the mortadella sandwich. Anytime of day is a good time for the goetta breakfast.

    Sacred Beast is typically a no brainer as far as consistency in food. Unfortunately my double burger was lukewarm at best. The fries & mornay sauce were great as usual. The almond cake really is delicious but it doesn't need to be drowned in whip cream & fruit. The menu description isn't very accurate. Our server John was wonderful. You used to be able to reserve a booth for 2 by requesting it when making reservation. When we arrived the hostess said they only seat larger groups there now. This is a big problem as there is no real comfortable seating except the booths. I hope it switches back or they at least call you to tell you before you show up & get disappointed.

    My complaint with Sacred Beast is the management. I had an issue and am unable to get through to anyone with which to discuss the matter. I called multiple times and left two messages, but zero response. If that is how they treat the public, I will ignore them also and dine elsewhere.

    The lobster gravy French fries were not good. The sauce was very thin and just made the French fries mushy. The sauce just tasted like salt. My husband got the gluten free version of the bun which is a hashbrown and he said the hashbrown was so salty he could barely eat it. We sat waiting for our food for 15 minutes and then the waitress came and got our order again because she lost it originally.

    We had a great meal there as always but the door to the outdoor area slammed so loud and so often that it was scaring my mom and her friend each and every time. They need to put something on that door. It took away from a great meal.

    Finally celebrated 2 long over due birthdays. The lemon ricotta pancakes were so fluffy and amazing! Bloody Mary’s are always a must here. Love how their portion sizes are generous. Not some tiny little slice of goetta. Also introduced my mother in law to goetta… she loved it! Thank you again for a wonderful brunch!

    This was our second trip and we were not disappointed. The food is just amazing. Close your eyes and point to something on the menu and I'm sure it'll be great. My son has a disability and going out can be complicated. Our server was especially attentive and helped us to have a great experience again. Thank you!
