We've eaten here twice now for Sunday brunch and everyone enjoyed it, service and food can't be beat for the price. It gets a little busy, we had to wait to be seated about 20 minutes the first time and closer to 40 the second but it's not that big of a deal if you just plan ahead for it.... More

While their breakfast offerings are great I enjoy the fact I can go for breakfast and have soup and sandwich.

This First Watch is close to Tri-County Mall and very close to the I-275 Springdale exit. It gets very crowded on the weekend but the trick is to download the Nowait App to get in virtual line. The food is consistent and so is the service. One of the better breakfast and lunch chains in Cincinnati.

Better than average breakfast fare - very busy usually. They can be a bit inconsistent and the last time I was there I ordered an omelet and it came out very brown and crispy. A proper omelet should be cooked through but not browned. Nice fresh edible fruit in most cases and tasty properly cooked potatoes. Friendly staff. I have... More

Went here for a church group meeting. On a Sunday morning. We were seated right away and provided complimentary coffee. The servers were able to accomodate our large group and we received our order very quickly. I had the bacado omelette with egg whites and mixed greens and it was delicous. Others had the trifecta and raved about the yummy... More

First Watch is a popular restaurant for breakfast, brunch and lunch. Food is good, though pricey. There's often a wait on Sundays...

Will not visit this location again. A number of things left me concerned about cleanliness. The bathrooms were not clean, I received dirty silverwear and I was given a glass that looked like it came out of the dish washer and lot allowed to dry.

We always enjoy breakfast at First Watch. Good pancakes (one is enough!) Also good oatmeal. Muffin choices change, love the chocolate. My wife loves the bacon avocado tomato hash. The coffee is just so-so, not my favorite.

Came for breakfast Sunday at 8am. Jeff was our server and treated us like we were long time friends. Food was great and service even better. My wife loves this place and I always enjoy going when we go together. This place gives you the feel of an upscale restaurant without the inflated prices. Best breakfast option in town. Thanks...
