    Great spot to visit before a game at Paycor. We enjoyed the brunch menu before the Bearcats game and had a great experience. The brunch menu is definitely a reason to visit again!

    Hard to be fair... we were there right after the Bengals' season opener and E+O is just outside the stadium. The food was great despite the crowds. Predictably, service was somewhat chaotic - but once our server picked us up, she was terrific! The only issue - again, likely due to the crazy crowd - was the near-deafening sound level.

    Only issue was that they ran out of eggs for brunch items at 11 AM. It was really busy before the Bengals game so I’m sure that’s why. We ended up having to order from the lunch/dinner menu (which was still really good food). We were just in the mood for brunch. Hopefully they learn from it and buy more next time 😊

    We had drinks and appetizers. The ceviche was ok, nothing special in terms of flavor. The chicken tacos were so-so-m and quite pricey for what they were (you get three tiny tacos). The dragon roll was ok. We really enjoyed the blackberry cocktails, though! Service was poor-servers were polite, but it was hard to find someone to help us. We assume we they were dealing with staffing issues like we are seeing everywhere. Sitting on the patio out front of the restaurant was nice-the music was less loud there.

    This was our first visit to E+O before a concert. They had interesting cocktails, great sushi and lobster fried rice. We saw a lot of burgers going by but no one at our table had one. Didn’t love the chorizo dip. Perfect location for dinner before a show at the Icon. We’ll be back.

    We waited at our table for 15-20 minutes without a server acknowledging us. Normally not a big deal but there were 6 servers at the bar behind us just talking and laughing. I attempted to get someone’s attention a couple times but was ignored. We decided to leave. Found a nearby restaurant with prompt service instead.

    Service was great Devin was attentive, food was decent . No flavor on the steak fried rice. Cherizo queso was the best appetizer. Also ordered the peppers. Kale salad with shrimp and added salmon was good. Steak tacos with goat cheese were very good.

Our waitress was very friendly and helpful and gave us her recommendations. The food came rather quickly, and it was so delicious! I will definitely be going back!

    I love E&O Hyde Park and thought I would feel the same here at The Banks. I was wrong. My 21 year old daughter and I got there and the music was SO loud. We had a reservation and luckily there was a table outside. The music was still loud but not as bad as inside. The device was just ok. They forgot our soy sauce and I had to chase down our sever inside after waiting for 10 minutes to ask her to bring us some. There’s seemingly a water problem on the floor outside because it was all wet which was gross. I will eat the Hyde Park location again but I will not be back to this one.

    I had my first visit yesterday and I can't say enough great things about E+O! The sushi and sashimi were incredible. Excellent atmosphere, location, and service. I never do reviews, but they deserve it. Do not miss this place. If anyone asks for a sushi recommendation, E+O kitchen will be the only restaurant that I mention.

    Stopped in for lunch before heading to Paul Brown Stadium. The service is always good here. The tuna poke tower is a great starter big enough for four. We all got Buddha bowls and they were so good. The Bengal Crunch roll was good as well. Value is great. The decor is fresh and fun.
