Took my son and his girlfriend with us for dinner. We all got the chicken and waffles, which was fantastic! I also enjoyed a hot chai latte, and my husband had a few of their dark beers. The staff was so nice. Service was exceptional!

Great night out with the family. Food was outstanding and the presentation was exceptional. Decor was beautifully done for the Christmas holiday. Looking forward to going back. Not sure why it has taken us so long to dine here, but are looking forward to going back.

We loved the breakfast menu here, including the great selection of adult beverages! Our waitress was on point, our food arrived quickly and everything was as ordered. We also took home a 4 pack of pumpkin waffles! Great food and excellent service. We had a beautiful view of the bridge even though it was a gloomy day. The manager even stopped by to see how we were doing. We would definitely return when we get back to Cincinnati.

I was really disappointed with the WAFFLES! The mixture was both dense and undercooked. The chicken was a thin slice with a very sweet breading. We were at this same restaurant 2 years ago and it was so much better, not sure what happened.

I had such a great time at TOB! My girlfriends aunt was in town for the week and we decided that this would be a nice place to have brunch at with her. She has never had chicken and waffles before so that’s what we ordered. The food was just as described, perfect taste and temperature. Everything came out to us really quickly. The waitress was very friendly and gave us great recommendations. We will be returning very soon!

Will start out by saying that I think there was some building maintenance being done, and either employee training, or some type of group holding a smaller meeting (after we showed up) that may have contributed to our experience. Overall food was decent and felt priced ok (had the breakfast plate, waffle was AMAZING, eggs and goetta were just "ok"). Service was pretty slow, at least at first. Again, could have been whatever was going on contributing. Got better towards end! The downside however was the seating, TERRIBLE! When the host first took us to our table, we saw the uncomfortable, tall, narrow metal chairs without backs, or at least foot rests to balance, and asked to be seated at a regular table or booth (I have back problems and am not over 6' tall, so these seats aren't meant for me lol). He said there weren't other types of seating available and provided no alternatives, just waited for us to sit or leave basically. There were booths open, and there were other lower tables open that people were seated at soon after us, so I'm not sure what was up. I shifted around as much as I could to try to get comfortable, but just spent most of the time we were there standing because the seats were so uncomfortable to me. We rolled with it and didn't complain (until now I guess haha). We had reservations btw through open table, so we weren't just walk ins. Had seating been more comfortable, this would have been a MUCH nicer experience and we probably would have ordered more drinks. I couldn't wait to leave, unfortunately.

Overall pretty good! I actually wasn't a fan of belgium style waffles, but I got the mushroom crepe and it was one of the best things I have ever tasted in my entire life! Coffee and drink menu for brunch is phenomenal and would highly recommend!

Great eating outdoors. Nice spot. Good service. Good Aperol Spritz. The French fries were not up to Belgium standards. Not crisp. Not thin.
