Unique cocktails using house-infused vodka, small plates of Eastern European delicacies, pierogi options for all - what's not to like. The service was handled by a team that didn't leave any gaps (hard to find as the world reopens). We'll be back!

Gotta be one of the most comfortable and mellow restaurants I've ever patronized. Great place to chill out and kick back in a clean, classy environment. Make reservations in advance! Great martinis (recommend beefeater gin & 3 blue cheese olives - can't go wrong - ask for Stacy) or a rob roy (have Sarah [Stacy's sister] make them, of possible). Dinner: recommend the stuffed cabbage dinner - homecooked meal while out enjoying yourself. A bud of mine and I always get the syrniki ("savory"-style) and bread/pickle platter....egg appetizer tastes great, as well. Will sorely miss this place (moving out of region).

Great experience. Sat at the bar and service was good. This place is beautiful and the infused vodkas are fantastic. Food was good and a nice departure from the usual fare. The pierogis were the highlight.

My grandma is from Czech and omg it was like a blast from the past. When she left us it seemed like all her recipes were gone too, but the food here brought it all back! I am dairy free, which can be difficult, but they were so accommodating. Basically made me a mix match of all their best things without dairy 😅 honestly almost gave up the dairy free diet to just eat a pierogi because that’s how amazing everything was. Their house infused vodkas were so good, tasted just like what they said they were and not like the “chemical” version, the real thing! Bringing my mom here ASAP and will def be back. Major gem of the city.

Had family in town and wanted to take them to a place that was different that they can’t find at home. Tried vodka flights along with other signature cocktails. Also tried a couple different pierogies. Everything was wonderful and the staff was delightful and very helpful!

We did the house flight of vodka, custom flight, cocktails, dinner, and dessert. It was outstanding, every bit of it! Both elevated and homey at the same time. Ambiance was fantastic! 10/10 would recommend!

Always a pleasure eating here. Treat yourself to a gin martini up with bleu cheese olives (not dirty) - I think they make the olives up fresh daily.

My friend and I had a wonderful first time experience at Wodka. The drinks were great and they did not skimp on the alcohol, the food was tasty and hot. The service was terrific, even though they were very busy! I will definitely visit again the next time I am in Cincinnati. You should too!

Our second trip to the Wodka bar, just as delicious as the first! Enjoyed a lemon and thyme cocktail with a pierogi plate. The pierogis were light and crisp and cheese literally melted in your mouth.

One of my favorite places in Cincinnati. Unique infused vodkas that you can order as a flight to mix/match. Solid cocktails. Vodkas you can only find here. The food is also excellent. If you haven't experienced Wodka Bar, do yourself a favor and go.

I always enjoy this place. Gotta make reservations if you want a particular seating arrangement, but otherwise great restaurant.
-Place is small, so I'd keep it to no more than you and 2 others in your party.
-Staff is genuinely friendly and non-pushy on the upsell tactics.
-Drinks take some time to make, but they're worth it (if you're a scotch drinker, try Sarah's Rob Roy).
-Food feels just like mom's home-cookin' (personally, I brake for great food like this; hate the excessively priced, ostentatious, $55-a-plate-art-project-type joints).

All around relaxed environment and very clean. Stacy is mad-chill and genuinely enjoys/is great at her job - she feels more like a close pal than your bartender. Outside of busy time slots on the weekends and getting specific seating you may be hoping for, I've personally never had a bad time here and the food is delicious.

You will spend money, but the experience generally pays for itself. Leave full, nice buzz and in a great mood.
