My wife and I dined at Relish last weekend and were impressed with the friendly and efficient service and great choice of tasty tapas and main courses. It's a convenient location and attractive restaurant.
Have been there for lunch & dinner a few times, and each time I go back, I enjoy it more! The staff is always very friendly, the restaurant is unlike any in Cincy, and the food is always a triumph!!! We have enjoyed Tapas abroad & in New Zealand, and it's exciting to have a taste of Europe at fair prices and close to home!
I have eaten several times at Relish Modern Tapas. You must know going into the restaurant that TAPAS are small servings of whatever you order...so you may order 3 or 4 things on the menu. I have never had a bad meal there...their mushroom soup and tres leches dessert are so good. The have fish tacos, salads, empanadas, and so much more. The service is always good and this place has a great bar and upscale bar ambiance too for happy hour or later. It is conveniently located in Mason. I have also eaten there with my girlfriends for lunch and enjoyed it equally.
We had the chorizo with dates, empanadas and fish tacos. I never thought I'd say this but I'd rank the tacos last. (They were good but not awesome like the other dishes.) We were on a date night and took the servers recommendations and loved it. Very impressed and we will be going back again and again.
I joined two friends to celebrate my birthday. On a Saturday evening. The service was great, the food was excellent - great value too. Great place to share with friends, over a bottle of wine. The shrimp was my favorite dish.
In our 21st century upper middle class suburban dining culture, most eating events are just a way to get food into our bodies in a convenient manner. This is not true for some gems in our Cincinnati area, and Relish is definitely one of those gems! My husband and I went to Relish to celebrate my birthday this week, and for once, I was completely delighted in the entire experience! You should understand that "'tapas" is a Spanish word that has evolved into meaning "snacks", so a tapas restaurant specializes in stimulating the appetite with small dishes of a wide variety of flavors. We ordered three of the bite-sized "pintxos" items, which were enough for a bite each for the two of us, and a signature dish of chorizo in medjool dates. Everything we tasted was a delight for the palate! You had to just pause after each bite and enjoy all the different flavors your tongue was discerning. We also had hummus with pita triangles, and the chocolate mousse with coffee for dessert. Everything was delicious, and very decorative to look at as well! I thought the money we spent ($50, including two drinks as well) was worth it for the culinary excellence, and we will be visiting Relish again soon, so we'll look for you there!
The food here is delicious, expensive but delicious. This restaurant does not exactly have tapas prices though the portions are smaller. In any case the food we have had there was delicious. I highly recommend the Mediterranean Seafood Pasta, the mushroom risotto and the signature salad. Try the original or italian flat bread as a starter, both are exceptional. A great addition to the Mason area we do eat here often and have recommended it to many friends, all of whom have enjoyed it. Wish the prices were more like other "tapas" restaurants we have been too but it does not keep us from coming back. Service is slow and not always great but we try to go at non-peak times and fair much better.
I absolutely love this place. When they first opened, I wasn't too impressed but this is a place that has continually improved. I have not encountered an item that I did not enjoy. love their calamari, their ribs were surprisingly amazing and I really appreciate the variety and diversity of the menu. In the mood for Thai-inspired chicken? Go to Relish. Want great fish tacos? Go to relish. Craving chorizo or delicious mushroom risotto? Nuff said.
I have never been to another tapas restaurant so I don't really have anything to compare Relish with but I can say that it is one of my favorite restaurants in the city. No lie. I went recently and I ordered the quinoa lettuce wraps, potato spheres, and the vegetarian paella. Every time a new dish came out I was totally convinced the next couldn't top it, but Relish consistently served us wonderful, quality food that quite honestly blew my mind. All the dishes were so good and I ended the night so satisfied and knowing I would want to come back. For dessert I split a tres leches cake with my girlfriends and I enjoyed it. It wasn't the best part of the experience for sure but it wasn't bad at all. I hear though that the chocolate mousse is lovely though. But there's always next time...because I WILL be coming back.
