A BYOB Mediterranean place near the U of Cinti campus. They tout their grilled chicken and it was quite good. Even better, though, were the many appetizers - stuffed grape leaves, awesomely good humus. Simple stuff but all well prepared. They'll give you the whole...More

Floyd's restaurant is exquisite. Family owned in the heart of the Clifton, University of Cincinnati Area. Their roasted chicken and Lebanese cuisine is among the best I have ever had. The waitstaff are also very helpful and kind.

So it kind of meets a "hole in the wall" type of restaurant, but I really liked it. The owner was our waitress. She was very friendly and helpful in selecting menu items. Of course as everyone says, the chicken was really good. They tend...More

This hole-in-wall restaurant (can it seat more than 16 people?) features the best Middle-Eastern food in Cincy. Savory, lemony, tender rotissorie chicken that is so mind-blowing you will never be able to enter a Boston Market again in good conscience. The side dishes are equally...More
