Knowledgeable servers had the veggie galette And a Belgium 101 flight and my wife(chocoholic) had a side salad and the chocolate dome tort. Sat outside on vine before the FC game. Great time
Being a first experience, I expected a higher standard of service. It took about 45 minutes to get the Tofu Hash and a burger with fries (which was room temp, upon arrival). I will try it again, as I know service is a bit strained right now, everywhere. ‘Nice place, and cool menu options however, are noted.
Food was EXCELLENT. So yummy. Wish there was a location near us (providence if your interested in expanding) :)
We went to this small local chain for breakfast and loved the cozy cafe vibe, in the OTR neighborhood, along with the yummy food! I tried the waffles with lemon curd with a side of amazing bacon, and was loved the whole meal! The server was friendly and helpful too, despite being slammed with several tables at once.
Overall we had a good time. Service was good but kitchen was the opposite.
Multiple items we ordered from the menu were out.
The steak i ordered medium rare came well well well done. Screwed up the whole dinner. I ate my sides but the brussel sprouts were soaked in oil and not eatable. Mac and cheese were not eatable.
This is a place for breakfast, brunch or a drink and some fries (frites and dips are great!!!).
You really can’t go wrong with ToB, in its original location. There’s been frustrating experiences some times when they’re out early out of certain things (like mussels), but that’s the price to pay for fresh ingredients.
Amazing beer selection… love this place!
A-maz-ing!! Such a cute restaurant, delicious food (like so good I can't even describe it in words), and great service. Plus they offer goodies to take home! I would go here every day if I lived in Cincy. 20/10, highly recommend.
Plenty of staff walking around but the service was slow.
Had reservation, table and service was ready when we arrived. Super friendly and kind. Food arrived timely and was delicious. Waffles are different from what I thought a Belgium waffle was. I LOVED them. Would recommend to anyone visiting the city.
Food and service was great. It was a great place to take our friends that were in from out of town!
We love this place. The waffles are excellent, and if you're a fan of chicken and waffles I can't recommend theirs enough. We went at 9am on a Saturday, and were able to easily get a table.
Food was good and service was great. Portions were very small and not completely filling in my opinion and we were sat outside with a big truck unloading their stuff so we didn't get a good view and was VERY noisy but thats not their fault necessarily.
Low rating because we were seated in a building adjacent to the main building.
Horrible service and food. Staff with little knowledge of menu. Bogus pricing on AYCE mussels when we only had one portion. Bad hygiene. Bad frites. We lived in Belgium for 13 years and were excited to try Taste of....tremendously disappointed. Cannot recommend to anybody.
I had a very simple breakfast: waffle & sausage. Neither were served hot. The sausage was sent back to be warmed and when it finally returned my waffle was half eaten and all cold. The butter & syrup was delivered after the food. Coffee wasn't forth coming and once we paid, we were completing ignored.
Great quick service, outside dining was relaxing and comfortable! The craft beers were awesome and highly recommend the chicken, biscuit and gravy meal, never had before but was great!
Great food, service, and atmosphere for brunch or dinner
So many unique flavors and foods, great drinks, outstanding coffee, delightful service. This is one of the restaurants that makes Cincinnati such a fun place to spend time.
Service was slow and server didn't come back to check if we needed anything until it was too late/we were done. I know the pandemic has been tough on food and bev, but they appeared to have plenty of servers...We just didn't get very good service.
This was the perfect brunch after a late night wedding the night before. Everything from the delicious foods (we had such a hard time choosing) to the chill but just lively enough atmosphere was perfect. To top it off service was friendly and efficient. We didn’t know what to expect, especially since this is a chain, but we were blown away. Best brunch in a long long time. If we lived here we would be regulars!
Im shocked at our experience. Not only were they not busy it Took 15 min to be seated " in the bar" when we had a reservation for a nice table because it was mothers day as well as my bday. After the person seating us wiped the table and left it soaking wet it Took 15 min or more to have anyone acknowledge we were there and get our drinks. After the waitress spilled a large OJ on my sons lap and was not much help at cleaning it up we waited 30 min for waffles that were room temp served with no utensils, no napkins, and had to ask for syrup which came out cold. Really poor management, service and food.
Awesome brunch spot. The omellete was perfect, and the frites (like fries) were out of this world. Love it.
Our service wasn’t very good and our waffles were cold.
It was great. Sat next to bathroom and waiters’ station which took away some privacy. It is a great place with great service and food!
Great food. Will eat at this place again.
Delicious food and a fun atmosphere. Can't wait to go back!
Very nice servers but absent flatware, sweetener and cream served with coffee. Food was surprisingly fair. We’ve had very good food before. Don’t think we will return for a while.
Food and service was great!!!
Food was fine, Bloody Marys were good, service at the OTR location wasn’t great. Our server was one of the bartenders and after taking our food order, she basically ignored us and didn’t come back to the table until she brought the check. We waited over 40 minutes for our food, and two parties who were seated after we ordered had their orders before we did. We had to flag down the other bartender, who checked with the kitchen and then brought the food out 5 minutes later and said it took so long because they had to remake a crepe. We’ve eaten at other TOB locations and I don’t remember it taking 45 minutes for them to make a crepe but... ok. I think either our server didn’t put the order in or the kitchen lost the ticket, which is understandable and would have been fine if anything had been communicated to us, but like I said, she never came back until she brought the check.
Perfect for a casual dinner & something different from the usual fare in restaurants in northern Michigan.
This has always been a staple of my Cincinnati experience when I've traveled here in the past. I've just noticed that the whole vibe has gone considerably more and more casual. The quality of the food has remained incredible! Just want to be clear about that.
A wonderful Saturday brunch spot!
Great place for Lunch with high quality food and a nice bar atmosphere
It was awesome service and the food was great will be returning.
Made a reservation for 6. Our table was ready when we arrived. We had great food, great service and overall good experience. Their waffles are soooo good - we got 4 packs to go!
August was great!
He made wonderful drink suggestions to accompany our brunch food choices. .
Certainly will dine again.
always good food and decent atmosphere .. service is always good
Always enjoy eating here when we’re in Cincinnati. I had the Speculoos waffle and fruit. So good!
