Absolutely incredible. They have small but mighty plates of food (tapas style). Probably the best prime rib slider I’ve ever had. We are definitely returning.

The food was great! It was a unique mix made by their chef, who also owns two other amazing restaurants in the Cincinnati area. The venue is super unique, with solid wood tables, live edge tops, unique barrel tables, awesome decorations and lighting.

Great spot! Great menu and dishes. Mac n cheese had the crunchy, buttery panko in every bite! Had the wrapped filet with gnocchi. Both great. Wine pairing on point.
