Review №1

Prices are reasonable and the food is very good. There's a wide selection from which to choose. The restaurant was pretty busy with a couple fairly large parties, but the wait was definitely within reason. There's not a large area if you have to wait to be seated; however, I believe they are planning to relocate to a larger facility, but I don't know how soon.

Review №2

A must stop when here in Cincy, love their tacos! Simple and not greasy, yet flavorful. It's a nice break from the greasy food I associate with being up here.

Review №3

I didn't know what to expect just by looking at the place. They had a seemingly odd selection but it was nice to have a variety of options. Their french fries were the best I've had in a while. While the food was good, the service was just okay.

Review №4

Amazing food, as always, good sized portions. Everyone is super nice and friendly. Always love coming here.

Review №5

Great food, great service, casual atmosphere. Couldn't ask for more. I love the fajita taco salad and Philippine egg rolls. My husband loves the Philly steak sandwich and onion rings. Other items are delicious, too. We've eaten here several times and never had a bad experience.

Review №6

We have passed this restaurant a thousand times and never stopped until a friend told us how good it is. They have a wide variety of menu items and we were greeted upon entering the restaurant and our server was very good and very attentive. Give them a try and we will be going back. Not a corporate throw it in a bag restaurant. Also very clean.

Review №7

Food and service OK, mask wearing and social distancing lax.

Review №8

We always try something different on your menu and never have be been unhappy with our choices. The service is always great. Thank you we will be following you on your move to your new location.

Review №9

Service was great but the food was over-priced and not very good overall. Got the steak chimichangas with onion rings . The chimichamga tasted good except way too many veggies. Onion rings would have been good of they weren't smothered in the Mac and cheese chimichanga mixture . My girlfriend dis not like the Mac and cheese at all. She also had meat loaf which she enjoyed. Nut she said her coleslaw was all Mayo. Sge couldn't even eat it. 50 dollars for food we barely ate I wouks have given 3 stars except I've read how you respond to negative reviews and your unprofessionalism disgusts me. Will not return.

Review №10

The food was fantastic. The staff is friendly and efficient. I truly enjoyed my experience. I will be returning.

Review №11

The food was good and delicious no problem with getting seated and eating our food.Great job girls! Thank you for serving me and my boyfriend tonight It is authentic Filipino food and the sauce with the pork adobo was good my boyfriend had (I do not eat pork products)The cheeseburger is also a good item as well with pretzel buns

Review №12

I give this a 2 star because while nothing was terribly bad, nothing was good either. The menu is all over the place and too big. They must cater to 5 or 6 different styles of food.

Review №13

This place has such an amazing variety that everybody can find something they are in the mood for all in one restaurant with amazing quality. Quick and friendly service. Always a great experience and reccomendation.

Review №14

Love this place! Can't wait till they move to the new location on Westbourne!

Review №15

It seems to be a great mixture of food and we went for Phillipine style food and it wasn't very good. We happened to order a texmex dish that was really good. So maybe the non Phillipine food is good.

Review №16

Great food and service. Very nice owner. Highly recommend.

Review №17

The food was good and delicious.. Always a great service and friendly environment. Christine is a one of kind. She does a great job in everything she does as an owner

Review №18

Was at a small gathering (10 family members) Saturday evening. We were going to have Mexican, until my sister said they ordered from Christina's. We ended up all ordering from Christina's! It was so good! Had to have it again tonight! Also, packaging for delivery was awesome!

Review №19

Good was super good. Had the ravioli yum, hubby had the new chicken curry soup, with a Christine salad, minus the bacon also got balsamic dressing instead of bacon vinaigrette. Daughter had the chicken rice dish which she loved.

Review №20

I had a fantastic experience with christine's restaurant. The food was really above what I had expected. The service was great and fast,friendly and thoughtful. All around a great experience. I look forward returning with with friends and family in the future.

Review №21

Christine's provides my nourishment when I need the most. Personable, kind and home made. Trust Christine to deliver for you and your loved ones.

Review №22

Door dashed, 1st time customer, large portions, next best to homemade, fair pricing, food is flavorful and absolutely delicious!

Review №23

Great food as always. Excellent service. Just AC was on the blink. But definitely going back.

Review №24

I really like this restaurant because it has curbside pickup.For a guy that drives a dump truck and won't wear a Chinavirus mask that's important.Good food !!!!

Review №25

Food is always delicious, great variety, and lots of food for the price

Review №26

They serve large dishes and for affordable pricing. helpful staff members. I recommend this place.

Review №27

Excellent place for great (if not the best in the city) margaritas, Taco Tuesday, and other great Filipino food that you can't get anywhere else in the area. Christine and her staff are top notch and will take care of you whether you call in an order for pickup or stop in for a great lunch or dinner. Could not recommend this place more.

Review №28

I love coming here! the Meat loaf, the roast, the Philippine egg rolls are to die for. She is very friendly and has great food! drinks are always good and the cost of this place is low. Great place to grab lunch dinner or whatever you want. i love everything about this place and the people who work here!!

Review №29

We ate here about a week ago & wife loved the spinach salad. I had a great bowl of chili & a taco! Both were great!

Review №30

Great friends, great food. A very nice place to be able to relax and enjoy your meal.

Review №31

I can't say enough great things about this place. Everything on the menu is wonderful and there is such a wide variety of food, anything you are in the mood for they have. I have never been disappointed in any of my experiences here. Owner is very kind as well.

Review №32

I've become a regular at Christine's. The food is excellent! I've been coming here for a couple of years now and it gets better every time I come back. A lot of time and effort is put into the decorations, its very clean, people are friendly, and there is a wide variety of food and she keeps coming up with new recipes. Highly recommend

Review №33

Enjoy the food choices, Food was very tasteful, moderate to higher priced food. Service was quick and good despite a obviously popular place to dine. Parking was adequate. Never paid much attention to this small restaurant but truly feel like I found a treasure. Would look forward to revisiting this restaurant for dining experience

Review №34

Been here 3 times now. The food is good. The service has always been good as well. It stays packed. And the prices are great.

Review №41

Great home made food at a great price. I wish there was one near me. It'll be my goto restaurant whenever I'm in Cincinnati

Review №42

The food here is amazing. If we aren't stopping in we are usually getting door dash.

Review №43

We met with friends at this place for a meeting. we heard about this spot from quite a few people. Well, we were not disappointed. we were warmly welcomed by the staff members and we felt good. The food was just great. We loved this place a lot and we will visit this place again. Highly recommended.

Review №44

Great food, very polite wait staff AND a fantastic system for delivery drivers (I ate here before a DoorDash shift and was assigned an order after)

Review №45

Great staff/food... Love it!

Review №46

Randomly stubbled on this place passing through looking for used cars and it was literally so amazing I would give 10 stars if u could. Amazing food great service the owner even came over and talked through food allergy options for our son. I wish I lived nearer so I could come back every week!

Review №47

Very warm welcoming staff with a great home feeling. Very quick to come to your aid with getting your orders, as well as having a fun warm hearted bartender that is all smiles and fast with the service!!! Family friendly and very welcoming atmosphere!Highly recommended!

Review №48

First and last experience at this restaurant for me. We had Christine's daughter wait on us and I hope she was just having a bad day because the service was terrible. She was short and impatient with new patrons. We kept feeling like we were doing something wrong. The food was nothing to jump up and down about. The all you can eat ribs were less than desirable. Just something they baked in the oven and slathered a bunch of sauce on. The fried cabbage is not what you might think. In fact, think twice before you get that. It's more like a slaw. Not good at all. What 3 of us got that was great were the margaritas. But just not a good experience overall.

Review №49

Everything was amazing and the price can't be beat. This is on my short list of places to eat on the westside.

Review №50

The food and service were great!

Review №51

Review №56

Great local place! Nice staff, the owner knows her regulars. If you can't find something on this menu you like, there's a problem! Highly recommended

Review №57

Great food. Great atmosphere. Delicious Filipino food.

Review №58

Fantastic food consistently everytime. I order off door dash often but it's even better if you go there! Christine has personally called me to confirm orders are correct. Highly recommend!

Review №59

The food was so amazing. The staff was great and music was great. Got to meet Christine and she was so cheerful.The inside was an old Pizza Hut but they made it look great inside with the bar and decorations. The finadene sauce was pretty good but lacked spicy. The lumpia was pretty tastey as well as the pork skewers. I was very disappointed in the pancit, like it was sitting out for hours, it was dry and clumpy. I would happily return here again.

Review №60

The best place you can ever eat drink and have great time.Note super friendly people and special smile from christin she super nice and very welcoming

Review №61

I go to this outstanding restaurant once a month because I enjoy the good air that is unique to this restaurant. The personel is exceptionally welcoming and experienced. The service is very quick. Most important, the food they prepare is highly distinguished. I have been there many times and I was always happy. The price is fair. I suggest this place to to everybody.

Review №62

Omg best food EVER. Please stop in and you will not be disappointed.

Review №63

Delicous food and friendly service.....will definitely come back!!

Review №64

Food was absolutely delicious and absolutely flavorful everything was on point.

Review №65

Very good food and pricing, good service

Review №66

First visit. Don't let the "old Pizza Hut" building throw you off. There's a reason why the parking lot is always full of cars: this place has excellent food! They have a wide variety of American and some Philippine dishes. I particularly liked the Filipino dish, Christine's Feast. Delicious! I will be back.

Review №67

This is so not close to Filipino food. Fake lumpia and fake pork adobo. This is what it should look like. The taste was not even close. I'm sorry but if you will claim to make Filipino food at least make authentic Filipino food.

Review №68

One of the few places in this part of town to spend time with people you love. i guaranty you that you will love this guys. the service is great by far customer service is beyond expectations.

Review №69

I go to this marvelous place once a month since I like the good air that is outline this restaurant. The personel is very friendly and professional. The service is exceptionally quick. Needless to say, the food they serve is perfect. I ate there often and I was always pleased. The rate is modest. I highly suggest this place to to everybody.

Review №70

This restaurant is AMAZING!!!! The menu is different from most places. The flavors are delightful! The portions are amazing. There are even some vegetarian choices that are tasty. They have a full bar for drinks and spirits. It is a wonderful place for a date, ladies night, and more. They even take reservations for parties 20+. You must try this place. You will not regret it!!!

Review №71

This is a great family diner on the west side of Cincinnati that my wife and I recently tried for the first time. The pleasant surprise of this place is the great variety of food on the menu. There is, of course, traditional diner food, but there are also Mexican, seafood, and Philippine dishes, which is the owner's home land. I tried a seafood chimichanga, which was excellent. The shrimp inside was plentiful and cooked to perfection. My wife had a pork chop and mashed potatoes, which was also well-prepared. The service was also great. I highly recommend this restaurant!

Review №72

Love Christine's. The owner is always there and comes out and socializes with you. The food is awesome. And the margaritas are the best in the city

Review №73

LOVE this restaurant! Gotta warn ya though, it gets PACKED during happy hours. Tried their new appetizer, plus the usual egg rolls(doesn't disappoint!) I gave it a 4 star for 2 reasons: it needs a bigger waiting lobby. And someone needs to clean the bathrooms better! If the owner is raking in the money, gotta spend it to keep it maintained & cleaned, right?

Review №74

West side hidden gem. They have your typical diner food but also some Filipino dishes and Mexican options, as well. The Philippine soup is amazing, one of the best soups I've had in a restaurant. The chicken sandwich was perfectly grilled. Everyone loved the food. Reasonable prices. There is a full bar, as well. Definitely check it out.

Review №75

Good food, good service, clean. Thanks!

Review №76

My wife is from the phillipines and wanted to have food from home. This place is perfect American and Filipino food rolled into one restaurant. Combined with half priced margaritas on thursday nights and we found the perfect restaurant for the 2 of us. We have cane back every Thursday night. The manager is friendly and checks on us each time we visit. This is OUR restaurant.

Review №77

Friendly service and the best margaritas in town!

Review №78

Wish only the Best for her and everyone working there...Best food always!!

Review №79

Love those Shrimp Tacos!! Coleslaw on the side, with a delicious Margarita!! Booyah!!!All that aside, it was a pleasant fun experience. The Owner and staff were thoughtful and caring.If you want a welcoming atmosphere, and fun with friends, check out Christine's. My guess is, you will be back!Make sure you try the Philippine Egg rolls!

Review №80

Great service and good food!

Review №81

Great food good variety fast service

Review №82

I frequent this superb place often because I love the special atmosphere that is unique to this place. The team is exceptionally friendly and qualified. The service is awfully quick. Not to mention, the food they serve is exceptionaly good. I ate there many times and I was never disappointed. The expense is reasobable. I recommend this place to all my friends.

Review №83

My wife and I got take out. We ordered the fajitas and Christine's feast. We live about 30 minutes away. When we got home and starting eating I found a black hair about 10 inches long in my rice. We called and they offered to remake the dish and deliver it. I told them I lived 30 minutes away. The girl told me to call back later when her manager is in. We won't be back.

Review №84

Had a very good experience in this spot with my son. The food arrives quick and the service is just fantastic. Prices are affordable.

Review №85

I got a burger and fries with a beer at lunch and the prices weren't bad, I spend more at 5 Guys. The server I had was great and she was very nice as well. The burger and fries looked terrific but unfortunately they were both some of the most tasteless I've ever had. That meaning that I've had said that tasted really bad and said that tasted really good however this literally had no taste outside of the pretzel bun. The beef they used must've been as close to fat free as possible as it was not greasy at all. The fries had some kind of batter coating.

Review №86

Jen, our server was excellent. The food was great. Will definitely be back!

Review №87

This bein our first visit to Christine's I wasn't sure what to expect, I found the service was fast and friendly. Food was on point and I would put their house margarita on the rocks up there with one of the best I've had. We will definitely be return customers.

Review №88

The pot roast is to die for and very friendly company!

Review №89

Food is always delicious and friendly service

Review №90

Panci and soup we're awesome! Great service too! Don't let the outside building fool you!

Review №91

The atmosphere is buzzing, the food is really good and the service was friendly and informative. We had the egg roll appetizer, which was great. We also had the shrimp tacos, fish tacos, the grouper dinner and the fried fish dinner. Loved it all. We will definitely be back.

Review №92

I went in to pick up an order and the lady was very rude snatched my phone out of my hand and refused to give me an order that was already bagged. All while on the phone being very aggressive and angry with a customer service representative about myself and another dasher in front of a restaurant full of people. She would not even give me a chance to talk before she kicked me out like I was some kind of Troublemaker who didn't belong in her restaurant. I have never been more humiliated in my life. I get that everyone has a bad day but the way that she snatched my phone and dismissed me is totally unacceptable. Then to shove my phone in my face and say do you see this, do you see this can you read? I've never

Review №93

The best place ever. Never had a dish we didn't like. The wings were better than expected. Atmosphere is super busy and the temp inside is really warm on a hot day. However we feel the food and prices are worth it.

Review №94

Laid back casual dining. My favorite is the salad with chicken or steak & warm dressing. The Hamburgers are good also.

Review №95

Props to this place! It was PACKED for it being a Thursday, and it was happy hour. Half price drinks! The service was one of the fastest I've seen. From being seated to served and paying the bill, I believe we were in there about 30 mins total. Loved the shrimp tacos, boyfriend loved the chicken club. All servers were very attentive and constantly asking customers if they needed anything, which was nice. And prices on food were cheap to top everything off! Definitely will be returning

Review №96

The pork skewers and egg rolls were beyond amazing!! And during happy hour they are half off

Review №97

First time visit as I was passing through the area. Friendly and helpful service! Very good food!

Review №98

Missed eating in @ Christina's.Pu roast beef dinners, as always it was so delicious.

Review №99

Lots of different food and service is always friendly. Great happy hour

Review №100
