First time diners to celebrate our anniversary. Server was attentive, ambiance was beautiful, the patio was perfect and of course the food was delicious (seafood trio and we split the swordfish special. Of course divulged with the flourless chocolate cake, too. Yum!) Had a hard time deciding on our entrée, which means we have to come back!

All in all we had a great experience. Service was a bit sketchy but our food was outstanding. Prices are on the high side but was easy enough to overlook due to the quality.

The entrees at Quarter Bistro are some of the best in town. The pork chop is my absolute favorite in town. The salmon and lamb are also amazing. The drink pours are generous and the outdoor patio is perfectly charming. We are very frequent diners and will continue as long as our experience here is so great!

My boyfriend and I were visiting Cincinnati for the long weekend and decided to come here for dinner. The service was wonderful and the time between courses was spaced out very nicely. Our server was very knowledgeable about the variety of wines as well, helping to recommend one that would go the best with what I ordered for dinner. I absolutely would come back here again. The short ribs and muscles were to die for!

We enjoy the Quarter often! Consistently good food. My salad with seared salmon was perfect! The chef knows how to cook salmon! So often restaurant salmon is disappointing, this was wonderful!

The lack of a good Chardonnay, at a reasonable price, is the only criticism I have ever had, and now they have even removed the Edna Valley from the list, which was passable.

We started out with two grey goose martinis followed by the seafood appetizer. OMG, Yum!
We switched to two glasses of red wine and split an arugula salad. I had the 18 hour short rib while my partner had the lamb chops. Outstanding!
We ended the the meal with two decaf coffee’s and we split the chocolate/ice cream (Graces Flowerless Cake) with the two chocolate sticks. Absolutely delicious!!
I would highly recommend this restaurant and the service was Fantastic.
We will definitely be back!
Cheers!!

When visiting Cincinnati this is a go-to for us. The food is consistent and they have great patio dining. We prefer to sit outdoors. The crab cakes and salmon are favorites.

The Quarter is always a fine place to dine. Great food and service. The new menu is bit more oriented toward larger entrees, neither a good or bad thing. Food is still great.

Ordered a glass of Louis Martini Cab that was bad. Should have sent it back. The special appetizer was a combo shrimp/pork belly was ok. I ordered the Steak Frites with what I thought was bleu cheese sprinkles. It arrived covered with a bleu cheese paste that over powered the meat, which was ordered medium but as I cut into it, spilled red blood on the plate. And it was room temp like it had been sitting. My wife had the Halibut special that she said was ok, but not great. My steak was also tough. Server was great. He would have taken mine back but I never send a meal back. Swing and a miss.

We had another great dinner here. Our table ordered both seafood specials which were lobster and shrimp pasta, and fresh halibut. Everyone loved their meal. The restaurant has done a good job moving tables out and rearranging those remaining so it is safer. This was my first “back inside” dining experience (fully vaccinated) and it was good.
