Review №1

Great food. Service was nice. Out door seating was clean. The staff was outside frequently cleaning the additional seating area. Chicken was juicy!!!

Review №2

Cool Service at first until I looked over and Saw the black dread guy with no hair net on digging his hand in the rice. Ok he's wearing gloves but he's also touching everything with them gloves. I definitely won't be returning.

Review №3

Randomly decided to stop here for dinner, and had an amazing experience. The staff were super friendly, all the food was top notch, and the atmosphere was cozy without being cramped. Will absolutely be back!

Review №4

This place is delicious but very small and compact. Don't expect a big group accommodation. The rotisserie chicken is made to perfection, the sauce that I had with mine (verde) complemented the chicken and rice so well. The brownie a la mode was exceptional as well. They warmed it up for me which sealed the deal.

Review №5

Great time at the Downtown location. I am definitely looking forward to going back, and trying the other location in the Pleasant Ridge location.

Review №6

Truffle tots are awesome! The waitress was very helpful, her name was Lilly. She helped us with every part of the menu. We got the Washington pita and a dish of the double dark rotisserie chicken. Excellent. Will be back!!

Review №7

Food was on point, the drinks were good and the server was extremely friendly. They seemed to be very covid 19 aware and clean. I will return.

Review №8

OTR location is not as good as Pleasant Ridge location.Brussel Spouts don't have enough lemon accent.Boneless kids portion is too small.

Review №9

I had the Benedict Arnold which had good flavor, but was a little salty (coming from the chicken I believe). The wife had a Chita in gluten free form, which was served over a bed of lettuce instead of in a pita which she said was good.

Review №10

Good chicken. Didn't like the sauces. That rotisserie chicken with rosemary is to die for though

Review №11

Thought I was going to brunch but it wasn't available but I didn't miss it. Had their Hurricane drink with their chicken salad sandwich. The drink was fantastic and my sandwich was indulgent, tasty, and flavorful. The staff was attentive and friendly. Will be back anytime!

Review №12

Chicken, yeah, so fresh. got there about one, it wasn't busy. fast and courteous service. wish it was closer to my house, i would come every week.

Review №13

One of the best chicken sandwiches I've ever had, and the same goes for the crunchy Brussels too! Service was great, an all around great place!

Review №14

Love the a la carte chicken. Service was awesome. I'll be back, probably too much:)

Review №15

The service and food was delicious. Some of the best chicken I ever had. Will be back again when I find myself in the area.I got half a chicken and the Brussels sprouts.

Review №16

Great food! Really nice staff and a cool atmosphere! Their Nashville hot chicken sandwich is awesome. Deviled eggs are great too. Also pies made in house for dessert.

Review №17

This place is incredible. I've been to both locations and the owners are such great people. Their menu changes fairly regularly with good features. The truffle tots are incredible, the cinnamon toast cocktail is delicious, the breakfast poutine is to die for and the chicken wings are really good. I highly recommend checking it out!

Review №18

The food is delicious and the service is great. The atmosphere is cozy and a great place to sit and talk with friends. I highly recommend the Marie Curie. It's handicap accessible with out door eating. Close to Washington Park and OTR shopping.

Review №19

Food was very good and our waitress was nice but service was pretty slow. I had waited for 15 mins for a water refill. The place itself is pretty loud too. They could use some acoustic wall panels to absorb the sounds.

Review №20

It's a dope place yo good people

Review №21

Wonderful food and Mason's service was excellent. We will definitely be back!

Review №22

They have certainly earned the Best of Cincinnati 2019. Four different dishes were ordered, with two of our party having dietary requirements and they were easily and happily accommodated. Taylor did an excellent job taking care of us, the rest of the staff was friendly and helpful as well. The poutine was one of the best I've had. And the rotating draft 50W Christmas Cookie was such a nice addition to lunch.

Review №23

The food was great and the service by Logan was amazing

Review №24

WOW so so good! Service was incredible (Taylor was the BEST, so personable and gave fantastic recommendations on menu items). George Washington was delicious, my mom and sister got double dark rotisserie chicken with coconut rice and roasted vegetables. We all loved what we got. Great ambiance, fantastic service, and amazing dishes. Perfect way to cap our trip to Cincinnati!

Review №25

Had a lot of fun here. Great food and great service

Review №26

Nice people but the food was not great.

Review №27

I have been here multiple times and have never had a bad experience. The chicken is amazing - juicy and tender. Tater totes were also very good. We got the pita chips and guac as an appetizer that did not disappoint. Our waitor was super helpful in explaining the menu and drink specials. Definitely recommend!

Review №28

My mom's getting her hair done for my brothers wedding this afternoon and I came over here to catch an AM World Cup game. These guys were so friendly I invited them to crash the wedding and gave them the down-low on the itinerary.

Review №29

Almost a 5 star but my Nashville hot chicken and truffle tots didn't taste as good as it looked. Place is pricey so I was expecting amazing. Wife loved the Nelson Mandela Chita and macoroni. Also got the brownie desert. Not worth the $8. Well come back tho because their wings looked really good.

Review №30

I had the pleasure of enjoying a Mexican Mule at one of their outdoor tables. I may be a bit of a lush but I think a bonus shot of tequila gives a better flavor.Reduced menu due to COVID19 meant no Parm Tator Tots. If you have the opportunity, give them a try. I'm also a fan of their brussel sprouts which is saying something because I hate brussel sprouts.

Review №31

Most importantly, the food is GREAT! The food was a little slow coming out of the kitchen but the servers made sure were taken care of. Get the massive family sized Irish Mule. Definitely a place to try when in OTR

Review №32

Absolutely amazing service and food!!! A tab pricey but you pay for what you get!!

Review №33

Really neat space and great service. The Marie Curie pita jammer was most excellent and the tater tots were PERFECT. Small but great draft craft beer selection, as well.

Review №34

Nice if you are looking for something a little different. Like the newer menu options...going beyond chicken. But the various chicken dishes and salads are awesome.

Review №35

Great experience and food. The biscuits are a big and cake like. Lots of flavor. The staff is wonderful and friendly. The decor is quaint and goes with the aesthetic that they are trying to provide. Does have a full bar. Lots of near by parking and other venues to go to afterwards.

Review №36

The chicken was absolutely fantastic, and even with little room to jam a piece of blueberry pie I'd still highly recommend that as well.Great atmosphere and the staff was top notch. Kudos to the bar tender!

Review №37

Upbeat, modern, and clean environment. Awesome place to visit for drinks or food.

Review №38

First, it was a bit of a challenge to figure out how to eat the fried chicken biscuit. But once I did it had a good flavor profile with a bit of heat from the pickled jalapeños. The problem for me was that the chicken was fried a bit more crispy than I would have liked and the biscuit was a bit tough.

Review №39

Great food... great service.

Review №40

This place has everything...Bottomless tots (fo free during happy hour), the Declaration of Independence, a menu named after historical figures... everything.This chic, modern spot is tucked into the up-and-coming OTR area of Cincinnati and won't disappoint. With ample bar seating, booths, and tables in between, stop by for a bite to eat, drinks, or both.

Review №41

Best place to go for happy hour or an evening dinner. The tater tots and wings (with lightning sauce) are amazing and keep me coming back. Always a great selection of beer on tap. Bartenders are always open for conversation (especially Aaron). It's an overall great atmosphere!

Review №42

I had the Helen Keller salad with chicken. It was the best salad I've ever had! The chicken was delicious and moist, the creamiest goat cheese, with black figs, bacon and pumpkin seeds. The flavor combinations were fantastic. Well done!

Review №43

Foods is great, drinks are delicious and well made. Prices are a bit high for this location. Friendly staff, clean place.

Review №44

A modern take on rotisserie dishes, served with good sides. Dishes are a little pricey for the portion size, I would say. Food was overall good.

Review №45

Great food and drinks!:)

Review №46

The atmosphere is cool and the food is amazing. Service is fast and friendly. Elevated comfort food with sophisticated flavor profiles. The rotisserie chicken is phenomenal and mac and cheese is excellent. Pita and house made guacamole is delicious. Other great choices are the potato bowl, the Marie Curie, and the Nelson Mandala, and the Nashville hot chicken sandwich. Sauces are good but ask for on the side just in case, as some of them are spicy. We will definitely be back!

Review №47

Unique rotisserie chicken venue with comfortable and welcoming dining. Dined here twice in one week with co workers and received efficient service. Mac n cheese is to die for.

Review №48

Food was very good. I had some chicken on a salad with a side of the tots. Beer selection was really good. Had two different local sours.

Review №49

Nice place, but cost to much. Nice people good ,ok service but 80.00 bucks for what we had no mo.

Review №50

Good chicken spot in downtown Cincinnati. It was surprising cooked well, not greasy, seasoning was spot on and temperature was just right. I will be back for more... especially the peanut butter stout.

Review №51

Deviled eggs were good. Main dish was luke warm. Alcoholic beverage was not so alcoholic.

Review №52

We had a great dinner very nice staff and very helpful with attractions in the area.I would recommend the southern comfort chicken it was great.

Review №53

Great take on poutine! Mixed drinks were amazing! Friendly service, great food! Will have to go again to try more of the menu!

Review №54

Great spot! Great food! Great service! Every time I come back to Cincinnati I will be visiting Revolution.

Review №55

Unbelievable experience. First the food - Amazing!! Best way to go is order a bunch of stuff for the table and everyone dig in. Second the service - Our drinks were never empty and our food came out fast and hot(on a busy Thursday night). Finally overall a great experience. Go, just GO and you will not be disappointed. For us we will be back!!

Review №56

Order your food ahead of time if you are picking up around lunch time. Customer service is great. Very Hospitable Professionals. Food is great. Definitely a mixture of comfort and healthy menu items! Revolution offers a Kid Menu. If driving, nearest parking garage is Washington Park garage.

Review №57

The chicken is flavorful, the coconut lime rice is yummy, we love the brussel sprouts, amazing tater tots, and the desserts are worth every calorie. The staff are always friendly and helpful.

Review №58

The rotisserie chicken is to die for. Best brussel sprouts in the city and great for those trying to avoid carbs. Sunday brunch is also excellent and their biscuits are well worth the splurge.

Review №59

Love the food and always receive great service! My favorite is the Hancock with pepperjack cheese instead of blue cheese and truffle tater tots with chipotle aioli on the side.This most recent time, I thought there could've been a bit more sauce on the pita but it was still delish and fresh!

Review №60

Service was a little slow but the food made it worth it.

Review №61

The service was good and the meals were a nice proportioned size. I just wish the main rotisserie dishes came with a small serving of vegetables.

Review №62

Fun place, very good food, friendly staff.

Review №63

Really good concept. Their chicken was good. The mashed potatoes, not so much. The server was funny and attentive.

Review №64

The chicken is great. The kids meals need work. service too

Review №65

"Lightning!" That sauce says it all! You have to go there and try it. Words don't work for describing it. Just go!!!!!

Review №66

Unfortunately I didn't have the greatest experience here despite it being talked up. We came in on a Saturday but didn't have to wait for a party of 8. Our waiter was prompt and polite but unfortunately had a major hygiene issue with his smell. It was quite off putting to several of us. For the drinks, I got a holiday special Moscow mule with house pear simple syrup and cranberry flavors which tasted exactly like ginger ale with two shots of vodka. I was pretty disappointed. For food, several members asked for little changes (no onions, sauce on the side) and most of those were missed. I had the joy of picking diced red onion off my sandwich. The sandwich itself tasted pretty good but left a literal puddle of liquid on my plate. I'd like to try their chicken in other dishes but I'm not sure I'll be back any time soon.

Review №67

Visited for the first time. Everything was delicious. The servers were very friendly and attentive. The Lightening Wings were amazing!

Review №68

Lightning sandwich is killer good.. Try the tots with the lightning sauce

Review №69

The food was perfect. Everyone in our party of 4 got something different and everyone loved it! The drinks were also good and our waiter "Joe" was both funny and helpful.

Review №70

Excellent place for Keto options, with really good food, and great customer service.

Review №71

Lauren and T Grizzley(Taylor) were fantastic and I loved the experience! I will definitely be back! Wonderful time and some of the best sauces and rotisserie chicken I've had! Thank you

Review №72

Great service and the chicken was delicious

Review №73

Love it. Great wine at a good price and edgy servers

Review №74

Delicious food & huge portions! Only complaint was, you can see the food being prepared and the woman with long hair should have it pulled back, not have it hanging over every plate.

Review №75

Picked up a quick and tasty dinner for the family. Good food made tasty.

Review №76

Food is amazing!

Review №77

I would have given 5 but the menu was limited. This was a brunch spot. Chicken and waffles, biscuits and chorizo gravy. I wasn't wanting that so I ordered a small salad. I forget how Cincinnati works and it was a bowl of spring mix (yard lettuce)and I'm particular to iceberg lettuce. So I didn't eat.Quaint place, hospitable and clean

Review №78

Aaron was the bomb. He was so knowledgeable about the menu and made our experience amazing at Revolution. We will definitely be back for the service and that fire poutine!

Review №79

Great food at reasonable prices. Good specials too! The draft beer selection is just alright but they make up for it with several specially cocktails on the menu. And the parmesan truffle tots are the best tater tots I've ever had!Last time I went, I sat at the bar and the bartender was incredibly friendly and helpful.

Review №80

Chicken was not completely done

Review №81

Its next to the Washington park in OTR.The food taste, atmosphere, service & price are good.

Review №82

The food is brunch style and it was just okay for me. I had chicken and waffles. The drinks were good and the location was convenient for where we were at.

Review №83

The chicken pot pie was amazing!

Review №84

So the service was pretty awful for my group. The upside is the food was great. First rotisserie chicken in a restaurant that has not disappointed. Try the lightning sauce.

Review №85

Really and great service. The Marie Curie pita jammer was most excellent and the tater tots were PERFECT. Small but great draft craft beer selection, as well.

Review №86

We love this place and it was my first time in this location, the food and the service was great!

Review №87

Review №88

Great food, people and vibe! For day or evening visits, you can't go wrong here!

Review №89

Lightning fried chicken sandwich - Excellent!!

Review №90

The chicken is juicy and their seasoning is great. I suggest the Brussels sprouts as side, really tasty. Service was fast and friendly.

Review №91

The service was outstanding. Extremely nice and attentive. When we went they were having problems with their oven, so we could only order from half of them menu. I don't eat meat and what I wanted was one of the things that needed the oven and we were going to leave, but the server was so accommodating. He created a whole new meal just for me and it was so good. The drinks were great too.

Review №92

Great location for my wife and I's date night. Right next to Washington Park and very good food with local craft brews. Well worth going to and awesome paintings on the wall. Haha.

Review №93

I got the Nelson Mandela pita, it was delicious!!!

Review №94

On the recommendation of my cousin, we ate dinner there and we're so impressed! My husband had the potato bowl and loved many flavors going on! The side of crispy brussel sprouts was so delicious! I had the Rosa Parks salad with chicken. They substituted the Bleu Cheese with feta for me and it was amazing.Cool atmosphere and decor as well!

Review №95

Great drinks and chicken!

Review №96

Amazing place! Great food, great atmosphere! Our server Taylour Thomas was very friendly, informative, and attentive. Will be coming back again fo sho!
