This is our new favorite restaurant! Such great selections and Wingfest is amazing. Carly is the best server in town. She was our server the first time we visited and made amazing recommendations and we were so excited to see she would be our server again. She is prompt, accurate and never steers us in the wrong direction. We will definitely be back. This is one of those places you take the menu from to see what you will get next time. =)
Service was exceptional; food was delicious, pleasantly presented, and hot when it arrived at the table.
Party of 8. Food was good. Service was good. Good time had by all.
Great as always
Hidden gem! Food was amazing and way better than the price leads you to believe! Live music, great service, everything was outstanding! We will definitely be back.
Although my overall experience at the restaurant was good I think to charge to sit in to listen to the music is unnecessary when you are paying for good food I would think you want your customers to have a good James without having to pay for it I’ve never been to a restaurant where I’ve had to pay to listen to the music
Warm friendly staff. Amazing lobster festival. Enormous amounts of lobster in each dish we ordered! Excellent quality food! Nice music by live performer.
Oyster Festival was outstanding as usual. Looking forward to it again next year.
Great as always
This was our first time eating here. We had the most outstanding server, Carly. She was perfect!!! She made excellent recommendations for us and we tried a lot of food. She was so attentive and we I have not had service that great in a LONG TIME!!!
Every bite we took was outstanding. I thought their prices were very reasonable. We are not oyster fans, but let me tell you, they have quite a variety of other stuff and we tried a lot of it =) We left with 5 boxes to go. Our daughter even raved about how good her tenders and fries were.
Needless to say, we were all stuffed when we left and had tons more food to eat over the next couple of days.
My husband highly recommends the sweet Cajun wings. I recommend the rest of the menu (ha ha). We can't wait to get a date night to go back and have some drinks with our food next time!
The annual Oysterfest brought us to try really great oyster offerings only available once a year. It's a tasty and fun event.
Our food was Amazing, as was the service. Our waitress Celeste did a Fantastic job. We will be back!
Friendly, efficient staff. Tasty selections. Never fails to be an enjoyable experience.
The oyster-fest menu is AMAZING. You won’t find a better selection anywhere.
The food is excellent. So many choices. I am partial to their salmon salad, and have never been disappointed.
Food was excellent. Oysters were fresh.
Food was delicious, atmosphere was fun, bartender mixed awesome drinks and the server was delightful!!!
Great place to eat the food is always perfect as is the staff
Our server was just the best and the food out of this world! We visit as often as times allows. Can't wait to go back.
John and his staff do a wonderful job. Since it’s their Oyster Festival, we ate various types of them. It was a great time. We’ll return soon.
It was great enjoyed having Oyster. We were happy we could make it to thus years Oyster Fest.
Good food-great service. 1st there and sad that it was very empty due to virus and protest. Will be back
Food was great! Service great. Drinks perfect. Loved it all!
Wedding Anniversary dinner. Relaxing atmosphere with great food, prompt service and good music
We were seated right away. Our server was courteous and helped answer questions about a couple of dishes. She was very attentive. The food was great as usual.
We love the Washington Platform. We had 8 in our dinner party, everyone's food came out hot and right. The food is always delicious. The jazz band had just started so we didn't get to hear much of them, unfortunately, because they were good. Our waitress was attentive, and very personable.
Food had no seasoning. Service took much too long.
We have trouble hearing and did not know that a Dixieland band would be playing in our room. Much too
loud for us at dinner time--though the music was good. No conversation made the experience bad for us.
Our server was late to work so we sat ourselves initially. No problems. Manager came over and apologized. So did the server.lol. she did a fine job. Food was excellent. The snapper fish sandwich was among the best I have ever had. Paired with a Thai cabbage slaw, it was HUGE! Took half of it home with me for dinner. Also got a quick tour of the underground malting room dating back to the original business, Armleder saloon.
Seated at a table where the band was setting up and they were extremely obnoxious while setting up
Hard to carry on a conversation with our guest
Foul language and all
Always good food. It was very loud - thankfully we were at other end of room - however it was an enjoyable time. We’ll be back again as I can’t get enough of their fried oysters or oyster stew. Yum 😋
This place is fantastic! Always enjoy the food and libations here.
The bloody mary was fantastic! Oysters on the half shell were also incredible. Both soups we tried were outstanding. The rest of the food was okay. I would come here for drinks and apps and ambience. Very much as I remember it from 30 years ago. A Cincinnati landmark!
What was great? Everything!
We went for a family dinner and six of us were seated at a small round table. Not much room for 6 people with food and drinks on table. Ordered oysters and the first one that was eaten was bad. We sent all back. Did not want to get sick. I felt very sorry for the waitress. It was not her fault. She did make things right with the bill and order. It was busy and service was slow. Might try again when not so busy.
Great place with delicious food and the jazz was an added bonus... great service from Amber and the ambiance was relaxed. We’ll be back for sure
Excellent oysters on the half shell - if you love oysters Washington Platform is worth the trip. Lots of good choices on the menu. We chose the creole combo and the salmon picada and both were very good, but the pace of service was slow. If you have theater tickets definitely let them know ahead of time. The second beer ordered when our entre came was never delivered, and I just cancelled it before asking for the check.
Great selection of seafood in a relaxed casual atmosphere.
Party of eight before the symphony. Hadn’t been here in years and so pleasantly surprised with quality of food and service
