OpenTable Diner (Cincinnati)
3.0  Dined on February 11, 2017

The ambiance was great, service was ok, the food was highly disappointing! I'm from DC and came to visit and ordered the cajun chicken and shrimp pasta and buffalo wings. The food was disgusting! couldn't eat more than 1 bite. The pasta was over cooked and mushy and tasted like milk. The wings were bitter for some reason too.....DO NOT EAT HERE! returning it now!

I had a wonderful experience here. The food was great! The drinks were excellent! The waiter, Terry, was thee BEST waiter I've ever had! The manager was very accommodating considering my request with reservations. I came for the band and received A WHOLE LOT MORE!!!! Thank you so much. I can't wait to visit again.

The ambiance was great, service was ok, the food was highly disappointing!! The greens were not flavorful and too spicy. The mac n cheese was not good, neither was the dirty rice. The wings as an appetizer saved the meal from being a total lost. I had not been there in a long time because the service was so bad but at least the food was decent; the quality of the food has really decreased and it was expensive and a waste of money!

Steps of service need to be reviewed with bartender. We were never checked on after our entrees were dropped. We had to hail the bartender for a refill on water and cocktails, of which we only got one. Food was bland. When looking at the menu online, I thought it would be more flavorful. The wings and Mac n Cheese were very good. The band that night was good as well. I will try it again just due to the fact that I really want to patron the establishment.

Overall had a great time at this restaurant! The live music was awesome, even though it was quite loud. Service was a little slow but that may have been because I was in a large group. Good was delicious. Definitely will go again!

Heard about the restaurant from a friend, it was all they talked about! The food, the atmosphere, the service was great! The live music was awesome! The dessert wasn't the best but acceptable. Plan to come again and bring a group with us.

server tries to memorize orders; gets it wrong on 2 items; for a want-to-be southern menu, its a good try but lacking a few good herbs and spices

The service was great however, the food (side dishes) were bland and taste store bought... There werent enough menu options to choose from... The BAND,Vibe5, was EXCELLENT... but they could use another singer who sounded very mechanical and unprofessional. She didnt know the lyrics to a few of the songs and read them from sheets of paper.. We would have rather listened to the band WITHOUT their lead singer

Mom 60th birthday party her first vist. The service,food,environment, all was great. The band was good, and energetic. What was a down point in the evening was, being charge an extra $25 on our bill if we ate the birthday cake there. So confused? What the purpose of the extra fee for the cake?

The mother of the owner made my experience an awesome experience. It was my first time there; she walked around several times to make sure I was having a good time. I went because they were going to have a live jazz band. The band listed online was not the band that performed but it turned out ok. I would suggest that they keep their online band list updated. Overall the food was good and I would definitely go back again.
