We love Nada. Food is always good. Got to get those potatoes! We try to share as many things on the menu as we can, but must have room for the churros! Drinks are good and service is great. We went on a Monday evening and it wasn't crowded and the noise level was much quieter and we could hear each other.

Foie gras at Boca is the best in Cincinnati. I wish they had more wines available by the glass. The bottle selection is excellent but too much for one person. The cellared Pinot Noir was very good.

Morelein had good beer (approved by my German Dad) as well as incredible appetizers to share. The wine selection wasn’t amazing but this isn’t a wine and dine type of place. I would highly suggest going for their happy hour as they have lovely deals and great ambiance.

From Chicago, the most delicious Tripe dish I had in my entire life. Definitely worth the visit. The only suggestion I would give, is to offer the fine wine list at the bar; I probably would have chose a different bottle of wine if I knew you had a fine wine list. Other than that the food was outstanding, service fun and attentive. Bravo!

We were surprised to find that Johnny's Italian Steakhouse was inside the Holiday Inn. Like most restaurants staff is limited but Omar did a good job taking care of us. Johnny's Italian Steakhouse is a Hidden Gem. I would rate the quality of food to Jeff Ruby's, Ruth's Chris and Morton's. Every dish was excellent! Calamari, Stuffed Mushrooms, Filet, Garlic Mashed Potatoes and Bananas Foster Cheesecake!

Nice place to eat Italian. The food was better than I expected after sitting down and looking at a plastic very worn menu. The table was pretty worn and the seating was old and rickety. The server was tired but nice. I would definitely eat there again. The price was on point for the taste!
