Quality food in the style of many restaurants in Europe. Lenhardt's provided 56 years of wonderful European food of which I was fortunate enough to sample for 44 years. People who wrote their myopic lies on other reviews should be sued for

This place needs new management, not only are they rude to guests but they are rude to the vendors who try to serve them and save them money on supplies and services. They need to save money so they can hire someone to clean that place and

Good food, but owner is rude and awkward. Place is VERY dirty also. From floor to ceiling, dirt and grime. I don't care how old a place is, it was gross. Tables are ALWAYS sticky, and plates are food stained. Their basement bar smells like

Despite only about 6 people dining the rude staff finaly seated us in about 20 minutes. The first appearance suggested that the dining area hadn't been cleaned in about 4 days (I hate to see what the kitchen looks like). My silverware needed to be replaced as the dishwasher neglected the large hunks of food on my fork but they still managed to make it to my table. The food finaly arrived and I think it may have been cooked the previous day, at least the temperature suggested so. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY!!! TRUST ME GO SOME PLACE ELSE!!??

Pros: The building is old and may be condemned soon

Cons: They start when you pull in the parking lot

My grandpa, Pete Lenhardt, apparently is related to Emmi Lenhardt, the founder of the Lenhardts restraunt, i know the story, him and his sister and mother escaped from a camp held by Hitler and came to America, his sister died of starvation and wont tell anyone about it. Depressing, but true story.

perhaps you have a bit of aryan envy? you're vibes about the "aryans" are the same as what you're saying they had about your "black" friends. don't hate, appreciate the differences in how people look and act, and respect other peoples opinions even if they don't work out the way you want them to. don't be quick to displace yours or the popular feelings on people there trying to make a living!

Pros: food

Cons: eclectic? it's a freakin german restaraunt and shouldn't be

Lenhardt's/Christy's has the best potato pancakes that I have ever tasted! We had a friends get together there the day after Thanksgiving at the bar called Christy's (entrance is on the left side, in the basement). The atmosphere is extremely comfortable with booths, pool table, juke box, a couple of video games and large tvs to watch, especially UC Football games! The food was delicious and the service excellent. Its a great hangout for all age groups. That says a lot as we had many adults and our small army of kids 8 years of age and under. The staff was extremely accomodating--we will definitely go there again over the Christmas holidays!

Pros: Great for large groups and parties, ball games, and celebrations

I tried it once before last semester, and despite the food and service being absolutely horrible, I was out to have a good time tonight, not eat...so I decided I'd try it again...What a mistake that was.

The short haired blond bouncer at the front must have some Aryan in him because he was nothing but condescending and suspicions of my black friends, and refused to let one of them in, DESPITE HER I.D. Being her REAL I.D..... The managers didn't do much to fix the situation, even when we asked nicely to return her REAL I.D. they were jerks and rude about it. As if they were better than any of my non-white friends...

This place just exudes bad vibes in volumes...Even if they decide you're good or white enough to get in (I was apparently) once inside its a testosterone fueled competition for who can find the easiest girls. There's no intellect, there's no good clean/dirty FUN, its a competition between meatheads to take the drunkest girl (of which there will be 4) home...

Just steer clear of Lenhardt's...I will NEVER go back.

It may have been good in the past, but those days are long gone.

This place was attrocious! I had heard all kinds of things about this place, more about the area actually, but some had said i needed to stop by here and others stay away! i wish i had stayed away! This site forbids any specifics, however,in a politically correct way my food was TOTALLY unnacceptable by any health standards...and it was addressed in such a flippant way that i was basically expected to act as everything was fine and be "hush hush" about it! i have since made sure to tell every friend and family member i have to stay away from there for their own good!

Pros: convenience

Cons: disgusting

This was a lovely place to hang out at with intelligent students and graduates of UC. In recent years, I've seen fights, attempted stabbings, shootings outside the establishment and the beergarten and lower section have become meat markets on steriods. I don't think the staff or Christy is taking full care of their patrons and it is only a matter of time until something drastic happens at this establishment. It is a bacchanalian pit of despair now. The guys look for fights, the women are pretentious and they only have one pool table and it smells downstairs. Odors, bad attitudes and danger don't make a good restaurant/bar. Sorry.

Pros: Bengals games on Sundays (maybe)

Cons: Might get mugged in the parking lot

One of the few and certainly the best german restaurant in town. Its strangwe that a town so well known for its German Heritage would have so few authentic German Restaurants. Lenhardt's is one of the last surviving icons of an age gone by.

There was a time when none of the waitstaff spoke English as a first language (If they even spoke it at all). The younger generation has taken over and opened a presence for the younger crowd around back called the Ratskeller, but the food here...The Schnitzels that they are known for are second to none.

If you find yourself in Cincinnati with a hankering for German food, go and check them out. They are very convenient to downtown.

Two Thumbs Up!!
