First time visit, won’t be the last. Small, quaint restaurant with tight seating, but not an issue. Staff friendly and attentive. Had cocktails ahead of dinner, excellent. Appetizers were the smoked salmon deviled eggs, highly recommend. Dinner was the braised short ribs and the black...More

We joke that the best meal we had in Cincinnati was in Covington. But it's true. Otto's has a warm, welcoming atmosphere and great food. The Brussels sprout appetizer was made with brown sugar, bacon, and onions. Great flavors and a good start. The pork...More

I chose Otto's for dinner during my stay in Covington and was happy to sit at the beautiful bar as a solo diner. The Benedict Cucumberbatch cocktail kept me occupied while I considered the menu, eventually choosing the Walleye (small but very nicely presented) and...More

We decided on Otto's on our first night in the Cincinnati area. We enjoyed a Berry & Brie salad and a Blackened Steak Tips salad. Both were delicious! We shared a chocolate cheesecake for dessert. We didn't have reservations ao we were seated outside, which...More

Just that and nothing extraordinary. Our server was very nice and attentive. We did not want to eat huge portions and he split one in two plates. Good brisket. Nice-size menu, a good selection and not overwhelming. Good selection of drinks. We particularly liked our...More

I was on I-75 heading South at the end of a trip and wanted a place where I could meet my sister for lunch. It had to have outdoor seating and needed to be dog-friendly since my dog was traveling with me. Otto's was the...More

If you've never tried a fried green tomato, this is the place to start. I love good ones and theirs are the outstanding. We arrived Sunday morning, and after watching the traffic increase as we were there, it was obvious that we were lucky to...More

Although Brunch was suggested for our 1st try of Otto's, we decided a mid-week dinner. Although fried okra & halibut are on the online menu, neither was available that nite. Walleye, another no show ! Our steaks were cooked more than requested. Five large shrimp...More
