What an awesome restaurant on the east side. Indoor and outdoor seating. Service is always on point. Five star food that’s not expensive or downtown. Free parking. What’s not to love. We will be back. The special we had was so creative. Can’t wait to see what the Chef thinks of next.

I was in Cincinnati for business last week and the weather was beautiful. Coming from Michigan, I wanted to take advantage and sit outside for dinner. This Bistro was across the street from my hotel & in a beautiful neighborhood. I went back the next night and took some co-workers with me. The menu was creative, service was terrific both nights. Wait staff seemed to be having a good time.

Let me first say that I usually love this place. My wife and I had our first date here and have been back numerous times. We were celebrating 6 months of marriage on this visit. Our server Matt was absolutely excellent. We were sat at a rear table which would’ve been quite romantic. The issue was there was a “regular” seated at the other rear table who was obviously drinking and very loud. He was joking about using the “C” word with staff members that kept coming out to visit with him. All was quiet when he was alone but high volume when one of the five or six staffers were sitting with him.
I realize that there are people who spend a lot of money here and more frequently than us but this is really a shame. I saw multiple tables in the rear of the restaurant that too were offended or bothered by this man.
It was an unfortunate first half to the evening. As I said, however, Matt is an excellent server and the food was delicious.

We used to be regulars here 15-20 years ago, and decided to visit again. We were not disappointed! Food is still excellent and the service is still top notch. And they key lime torte is still as good as we remember.

We have been to the Quarter so many times over the years. Always a good experience. This visit was horrible. We waited 1 1/2 hours for our food. Even then, the food was mediocre, which shocked me because it used to be so good. The manager offered us 2 complimentary desserts for 4 people to apologize for the wait. Really? We each didn't get our own??? Seriously ridiculous. Quite frankly, the entire meal should have been given to us at no charge. So sorry that your food and service have dropped so low. I hope you use this as an opportunity to improve in all areas of your business. Very disappointing.

Always a good experience. Chris, the chef creates beautiful and delicious offerings and is always willing to come to the table to ensure each diner is satisfied. Special needs are readily accommodated. The wait staff are well informed and the service is great. The tables are a bit close together but the noise level is tolerable.

The sauce and vegetables on the rack of lamb were very good, as was the salad and rest of the meal. The rack of lamb meat itself was not quite as good as the dishes usually are at Quarter Bistro. We enjoyed the meal as usual.
