“Excellent greek/lebanese food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 December 2011

Located near the University of Cincinnati Floyd's has grown from being a near dive into a cute neighborhood establishment with a huge, eclectic clientele. You'll see everyone from City Councilmen to students to P&G execs from Europe dining here. Smallish menu, very informal service, family run with a family feel to it. if you eat there more than once you'll soon know everyone's name. The food is always good, although they tend to run out of items, especially on basketball game nights. No liquor license but you can and should bring your own wine. Parking can be a problem but there is a free lot down the blcok. The only real downside is the restaurant has irregular hours and may close early without warning.

“Our Family's abode!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2011

Floyds not only has the healthiest food served ever, but also it is far better tasting than so many I have ever tried! I practically live there we go around 4 times a week. The owners are simply wonderful and the main/only chef is the co-owner. A fabulous chef and with a charisma! Waiters come and go so I really don't have a favorite but I know there were bad ones and they did not linger long behind. I strongly recommend this to anyone visiting the area, dropping their kids for school, going on a date, or simply lives in Cincinnati.
Reine the chef, always gives desert for free (the French cookies are simply heaven and the pan cakes too) if you are new to the area or just visiting, "to give a sweet taste and memory" she says.

“Horrible!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 February 2010

Went there for lunch and was expecting great things due to all the good reviews. Was I wrong! The employees were rude and short with us and we got the SMALLEST amount of food I have ever seen! The chicken lunch for $7.00 came with a drumstick and about a quarter of a thigh, not to mention it was all COLD! When asked to possibly get some breast meat, I was told no, that it was too late now.

I left hungry and unhappy and walked across the street to a different restaurant!

“Hidden dining gem of Cincinnati”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2009

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 great - garlicy smokey Baba Ghanough, lovely green beans...lima beans (!) that will rock your culinary world. And try the Lebanese pancakes for dessert - a sweet, perfumed taste of the lavant. No atmosphere to speak of, save the Salti family themelves, who are a delight. I was a regular for 4 years until I moved. Having visited 12 years later, nothing has changed, which is all for the good.
