    I really wanted to like OKTO. Mediterranean food is one of my favorites but unfortunately the food left me unimpressed. The lamb gyro was basically tasteless. The meat was thin and charred and the pita was dry and brittle. The fries were good. The service was good. We waited too long to make reservations for a Saturday night but OKTO was wide open. Now I know why. I suspect this restaurant won’t be around for the long haul. Better gyros at many of the local dives for a fraction of the cost.

    This was our first time at Okto and were pleased with our meal. The food and service were excellent. We shared a grilled octopus appetizer that came on a bed of fava puree similar to hummus but made with Fava bean instead; octopus was tender and delicious. One of us had the Souvlaki mixed grill (lamb & chicken) served over cous-cous with a Greek salad made with cherry tomatoes along with some roasted vegetables. The other entree was a grilled mixed seafood dish with lobster, shrimp & octopus along with roasted vegetables. This is right across from Aronoff Center so it would be convenient before a show. We plan to go back. The only downside I could anticipate would be the noise level as it is open with high ceilings, hard surfaces and nearby tables. We ate early so noise was not an issue. Great restaurant and nice to finally see some upscale Greek food in Cincinnati!

    I really wanted to like OKTO. To be fair, the table was lovely, the drinks were tasty, if perhaps a bit pricy, and the calamari was excellent. Our entrees however (burger and lamb gyro) were both way over cooked. The Greek fries were cooked well but way heavy on herbs. The service was attentive and delivered with positivity.

    This was a perfect spot for a pre-theater dinner. Once we told our server that we were going to the show, she made sure we were finished in time. The food was very good. Tuna carpaccio appetizer was delicious. Pastitsio was very good, but could have used a bit more spice and garlic. Baklava dessert was divine. We will definitely return.

    Alison was great! She was very familiar with the menu and was able to help us make our dinner selections. She did not rush us but was able to keep us on schedule to make the Aronoff. The branzino was amazing. We were not disappointed in any of our selections. This was not our first experience and it will not be our last.

    Food quality, taste, and value were spot on. Server was excellent as well. Only complaint was the bar service was delayed. Could have been staffing etc. Definitely did not ruin our visit just a little noticeable that simple wine pours took longer than standard to arrive. Overall a fantastic evening.

    I had been wanting to try OKTO for a few months and I was not disappointed -- the food was just as good as it looked and tasted fresh and delicious! The atmosphere was great for a date or a meetup with friends, and the staff was friendly and conscientious. I'll definitely be coming back to try more from the menu.

    We arrived early for our reservation but we’re seated immediately. Service was excellent, our server was very nice, efficient but pleasant. Drinks were ok, nothing I would go back for. The burrata salad was delicious but the entrees were nothing to rave about. My husband had the gyro and I had the lasagna. The tzatziki sauce was very good but the gyro lamb looked like something out of a grocer’s freezer and the fries were good but again, nothing to write home about. My lasagna was VERY cheesy and not much of the meat sauce I was hoping for. I would say it was a bit more like a very fancy mac and cheese. I would probably go back if I had friends made a reservation and wanted to go but I would not make the trip to downtown Cincinnati just for dinner there

    The atmosphere was fabulous, we had such a good time! Our waitress was fun, had great suggestions, and was always there by the time we noticed we wanted something. The space is superbly decorated, and the food is spot-on upscale Greek. We had the flaming cheese as an app, which was fun! The branzino and yellowfin tuna as entrees, and the Greek yogurt as dessert. No regrets, though my husband and I both fell in love with the purple potatoes and yellowfin tuna! I highly recommend this as a romantic date night.

    Okto is one of my favorite places to eat to dine, and our server was the best! Please give her a big bonus, because she is one reason we return so often. However, the one thing you could do better is a return to the original plate presentation of your Lobster Pasta, as it was much more appealing visually.

    Great food great service. Forgot we were in Cincy, which is a good thing that we now have that feel in Cincy. Portion was good but wish it was just a tad bit more lobster pasta in the bowl for the price. Of course I expected more for lobster and current industry cost,but it was the portion. I would have paid a little more for more in the bowl. Yes, I would go back for sure, beautiful place great food! Glad to have it in Cincinnati.

    Food was wonderful! Very busy as the Aronoff and the Taft were both hosting shows. We sat at the bar and service was lacking due to just one bartender trying to meet the needs of the entire rather full restaurant. Will definitely return, hopefully they are able to hire/plan better for busy evenings.

    We never made it in the door. I made a reservation for 4:45PM on Sunday before a show my wife and I were attending at the Aronoff. Despite making the reservation weeks before, despite receiving a confirmation number from OpenTable, despite getting a follow up confirmation from OpenTable two days before, despite checking Okto’s website which clearly said it was open on Sundays until 6, and despite a flag literally flying next to the front door that said, “OPEN”, we learned that Okto was in fact closed on Sundays. We could not find reservations anywhere else on such short notice and were forced to eat bar food at the only place we could find with seating. Needless to say, this experience ruined our night and was extremely disappointing given how much we looked forward to eating here. A call to Okto to inform them went only to voicemail and after requesting a call back from the manager, I am still waiting. As another reviewer stated, if you book Okto through OpenTable (which is how Okto requires that you make reservations), have a backup plan in case they are spontaneously closed for no reason. Or better yet, just go with a different restaurant that actually wants your patronage.

    I mean they come to your table and set cheese on fire! What is not to love about that?! Heather was a ball of energy as she took great care of us. Food was terrific, service was outstanding and the ambiance was energetic and hip. We loved it…c’mon…they set cheese…on fire!! If you don’t make it to OKTO this summer you better be dead or in jail.

She recommended the Greek lasagna and the lobster pasta and both were so delicious. Will go back again many times.
