Great food. Everything was very fresh. Salads crisp. The bead is soo.. good! Had the scallops and were the best I've had in a long time. Red Feather is my new favorite restaurant.

Always, excellent service and food whether it be Brunch or Dinner. Consistency is hard to come by and Red Feather is on spot. We love bringing out of town friends here because we always know that they will love it just as much as we do! Wonderful staff from the hosts to the management. Thank you!

I took my wife to the Red Feather for "date night" and it was absolutely a great decision. This is THE place to go for a perfect evening with someone special

Service was extremely slow. Over two hours, with nothing requiring long cooking times. Food was interesting but not worth the slow wait for the entrees

We have enjoyed Red Feather every other visit but this was not our best experience there. Our service was mediocre at best. Wine was served without offering a taste and sloppily poured. Our server was a nice guy but seemed either new our out of his element. Our food was just not great when usually it's to die for. Don't love that back room. We will chalk it up to an off night

Went to Red Feather as we hadn’t been in quite some time to try something new for a birthday dinner....usually we go to Boca or Sotto. Had a reservation for 7:30p for five, promptly seated. Excellent server, water, waitstaff in general, even the valet guy but we were terribly disappointed in our food. Didn’t help that we waited 90 minutes for it to arrive???? Salads were good, fresh. Burgers were above average but nothing to write home about. I had shrimp tacos and cauliflower soup which were both very good!! My husband had the spatchcock chicken and it was awful - looked beautiful but had absolutely no flavor, moist but no flavor, not even a chicken flavor just nothing as did the polenta underneath. It was bizarre and unexpected. Also the pumpkin risotto was awful and we didn’t even eat, texture was like baby food mushy and too sweet. Overall we were surprisingly very disappointed in the whole experience with the exception of the staff and my meal. Not sure we’ll be back very soon.

Was looking for a place for date night and decided to try The Red Feather, was definitely an awesome choice. We sat at the chef's table and enjoyed watching all the action. The attention to detail to everything that went out was impeccable, and the team worked flawlessly. The food was incredible with amazing flavors. Everything we had was spot on, and every bite was as good as the first. Also, if you want to experience the best customer service, you have to go. I would highly recommend this restaurant. From the moment you walk in you see the attention to detail and it carries through the entire restaurant. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend it. Don't miss out.

We had a fantastic brunch at Red Feather. Everything we ate was really tasty. Definitely one of the best brunches in Cincinnati.

I struggle with this review because the food is usually extremely good, but I fast during most days and workout, so often I leave here still hungry. The portions are so small for even a salad, which is one of my favorites anywhere. Everyone needs to eat more dark, green, leafy vegetables, so why skimp? For example, we shared the roasted olives (the BEST), I ordered the TINY garden salad with no egg, and the scallops (3 for $39), and I needed more food after a rather expensive meal. We will eat here, again, because the food is quite tasty, but does explain why it is not our go-to weekend restaurant.

The preset menu was extremely small portions for a place that sells burgers on its regular menu. $75 a person for roughly 10 bites of food is a bit aggressive. I’m positive we could have had an amazing steak dinner at Ruby’s down there road for the over $300 we ended up spending. We will go again but never with a preset menu.

I was disappointed because this place has been great before. It was Valentine’s weekend. Several issues. They changed to price fix menu after I had made reservation. The service was slow(2 hours for dinner) One of courses was barely above room temp. I would not come back on busy day.

A very enjoyable experience. Staff is well versed and very knowledgeable. Attentive and not hovering. Enjoyed the pre fixe menu on valentines weekend. A couple small misses which the staff more than made up for. We look forward to trying the next dinner menu.

Only semi issue was the cocktail I ordered. I didn’t like it and our server let me order another one — no charge. He took the cocktail I did not care for away. Great service!

Overall it was another great experience generally. The service was excellent, and most of our food was very good.

We did have the crab cake, which was unfortunately cool in the middle and somewhat dense, like it was made days previously. A bit disappointing given our other positive experiences.

I made reservations at this neighborhood restaurant to celebrate my father in laws birthday, and what a big surprise! The aroma in the restaurant was an instant sense awakening! Everything from that point on exceeded my expectations. The service, food and the ambiance was spot on for a birthday celebration. I highly recommend The Red Feather for lunch or dinner, and for any celebration. Life is to be celebrated, so make a reservation and go celebrate! The Red Feather will not disappoint. Thank you to Brad the owner and chef as he introduced himself on Saturday, which added to our experience. Thank you as well for making my father in laws birthday quite the surprise!!!!!

The service was great; the ambience is nice. It was a bit noisy, but tolerable. The cheese board was good and then the entree came. The lamb and broccoli I were tasteless and the fried onions were greasy. Second time this has happened. Wondering if it’s a new chef, new crew or what. Not worth the significant price. Will choose another restaurant the next time I do a business dinner.

Food was great (freshly prepared, high quality) as was the ambiance of the restaurant. Yet, I would have given it a much higher overall rating but for the mediocre service. It began with the hostess trying to seat us at a cramped 2-top at the edge of the steps, next to a large occupied table - when there were a half dozen other available tables in open, private space. She did accommodate a request to change. The waiter then made me a bit skeptical when I ordered coffee to accompany my main course and he essentially warned me he may need to be reminded (really, that's my job?). Sure enough, he forget the coffee until I reminded him when he checked in after our mains were delivered. Then we never saw him or anyone else again - I couldn't BEG my way into another cup of coffee to finish my meal. I get that brunch is not a favorite shift to work and we were there at the end, when wait staff is focused on side work. But this is a sad way to spoil all the hard work of the kitchen.
