Fabulous dinner. Great service. Wondeful food. We had the special that was sea bass and the mushroom ravioli. The flavors were incredible. The bread pudding for desert was to die for.

Nice paced, efficient service.

Definitely will return

We hadn't been to Quarter Bistro for a few years but decided to go after the movie. We were happily surprised at the varied menu offerings, especially the sandwiches, salads and smaller plates. The food was delicious. The only thing was, my husband was still hungry after his tacos. Two wasn't enough! Also, you might offer bread with salads.

What is typically a favorite place to dine howeverSomething must have been off at this restaurant. Waited over an hour to be sat outside with having a reservation. Waters were never refilled bartender never checked in. When we were sat for dinner we had to take our meal to go because service was so slow

We always love The Quarter Bistro. My only complaint would be the price of a glass of Rombauer Chardonnay. It is close to $20.00, when you can buy a bottle for $34.00 in any grocery store. I realize that they need to charge a mark up, but that is so high!

The short ribs are great. Excellent. The wagyu sirloin, however, was stringy and the tomato bisque tastes like Ragu in a bowl. Disappointing. The wait staff is great.

The food was adquate. But the service was terrible. They never refilled our water glasses, which were empty for most of the dinner. I tipped 15% instead of my usual 20+%, but now I wish I had stiffed her.

OUTSTANDING! Loved the ambiance! Between the four of us, one had the blackened pork chop, another the shrimp and scallops, and us gals split the steak dinner. Everything was simply delicious and we all said we'd go back there again and again. Our server, Shelby, was excellent, attentive and made us feel at home. Can't wait to make another trip to Mariemont just so we can go there again!

We were seated on the patio for a relaxed dining experience. Street noise occasionally drowned out the conversation but not beyond reasonable. The cuisine is excellent and the service was attentive. I did not review the wine list but draft beer choices were limited.

The food is always good!
The table I requested and reserved was not available
When we arrived. We were seated at SMALL 2 top
Next to a 6 top.
Our 2 glasses of wine were competed for the
Inconvenience.

I love the restaurant, but will never go there again on a Saturday night (People seem to scream their conversations throughout the entire restaurant)

Quiet fine dining seems to be a lost treasure!

We went to a movie next door at the Mariemont Theater and decided to try the Quarter Bistro for the first time. We were definitely impressed with the entire experience. Our server Kayla was exceptional. We had filled up on snacks at the movie, but she coordinated our request to split a salad and entree. We paired our meal with a Rex Pinot Noir and it was all perfect. Atmosphere is very nice, noise level low and the convenience if you’re catching a film is ideal. We’ll definitely return. However, next time we will go hungry because they had a lot of options we would like to try. Kudos to the Chef!

Service was excellent as usual. But disappointed in the shrimp taco. I was not expecting fresh shrimp but perhaps they could be grilled or some other prep instead of just being slightly warmed boiled shrimp.

We had to send a meal back and ask for no peppers, and it came out again with peppers. Oh well. Our server was very nice but kept interrupting conversation. No offense, but we came to be together with friends, not with you.

Father’s Day Had a wonderful waiter who has been with the Restaurant for many many years. He was informative without being intrusive, attentive and everything you would want in a professional waiter. The food was delicious and we enjoyed our meal very much
