Visited with a diverse group of friends from out of town. Liked the look of the place as soon as we walked in - great looking bar, exposed brick walls in dining room, clean, bright, and quiet for a Saturday night. We were looking for a non-franchise, neighborhood kind of place with some history, and this fit the bill. Immediate seating, good food and Fosters on draft.. Impressed with the courteous service since I tend to ask for substitutions. No problem! Great place to eat, drink and talk, especially if you like sandwiches, pasta or seafood, desserts and good coffee. No hamburgers, big screen TVs or loud bands here. Great neighborhood ambiance. Felt like we experienced a bit of ""real"" Cincinnati.
