    The food was absolutely delicious!! I shared the 10oz fillet and lobster tail with my husband and it was the best fillet I’ve had so far! They also have a great wine selection! We will be back.

    My friend and I were looking for a pre-show meal before seeing "Into the Woods" at the Carnegie in Covington and Lisse Steakhuis caught my eye when I was searching for places nearby that take reservations. I'm a sucker for a good steak. We were seated immediately in a nearly empty dining room (it was only 5 pm on a Saturday, but I'm shocked it wasn't more crowded) and our server, Loren, brought us water and took our drink order. He was professional and friendly, but also paced things perfectly. I love a server who knows how to explain the menu without overdoing it. Shortly after bringing our Cokes (or Cherry Coke in my friend's case), we were also treated to complimentary bread service. It was good, but nothing fancy. We both settled on the Van Gogh, an 8 oz. filet. My friend likes hers medium rare; I get mine medium. We both thought that they were just a tad more done than we like them, but that's fine - we'll recalibrate next time we go. We certainly didn't waste any time devouring them regardless. I also had a Caesar salad to start; it was tasty with a nice creamy dressing and just the right amount of cheese. We shared the Dutch Mac and Cheese; this side is worth going to Lisse for alone! It was piping hot and so cheesy, with a nice mixture of flavors. ' Finally, I had the double chocolate raspberry cheesecake for dessert. My friend had the Boterkoek (or more commonly referred to as "Butter Cake.") She loved it so much. I sampled it and it was good, but I prefer something a little richer. My cheesecake was huge and I couldn't even finish it. I think I'll try Creme Brulee next time, just because I love Creme Brulee! I thought the price was reasonable for the level of service and the quality of food but be advised that this is priced like the luxury steakhouse experience that it is. We already made reservations to return.

    This was a business dinner, and the atmosphere was perfect for conversation. Delicious prime steaks with an interesting mix of traditional steakhouse and Dutch-inspired sides and appetizers. Service was great and food was served very quickly and it was all fresh and delicious. Among our group of 7 we had a mix of the flounder, chicken and steaks and everyone was very impressed. Bar, bourbon and wine menus are very complete with a wide variety. I'll definitely be back!

    We were celebrating our son’s birthday with the family. The steaks were delicious (loved the mushrooms & onion topper) and sides were all very good. We especially liked the almond dessert (cake?) Be sure to go up to the 3rd floor to get a drink and enjoy the Cincy skyline.

    For being a high rated steakhouse in a city with quality restaurants, this was a pretty underwhelming experience. Ambiance was that of a strip mall, server was unattentive, steak was overcooked (hockey puck style, we ordered it MR). We were asked "how is everything" i hesitantly said "its eh okayy"... server shrugged and walked away never to be seen again. I then mentioned to another server about the steak and again he shrugged it off and said "im sorry to hear that" and walked away. Never got bread either...haha. if you are looking to have a decent date night and enjoy quality food, there are dozens of places you can go to get a better experience.... if you are looking just to "eat", still avoid this place-save yourself some money and grab a slice of pizza at goodfellas. Youll leave happier. Trust me. Oh and i enjoy cocktails....the server was so unattentive i only managed to get one drink for the entire meal. Goes to show you just how bad this was... Jeff rubys, ruths criss, mortons, or any other place are 10x better than this place. Lisse wont be open too much longer is my guess....

    Das Essen war 1. a! Spitze;-) Die Bedienung (Frau) war nicht gerade freundlich und zu vorkommend… der Kellner jedoch war sehr zuvorkommend und aufmerksam. Wir würden das Lisse Steakhuis wieder besuchen. Einzig die angegebenen Preise bei OpenTable sind nicht mehr à jour. Diese wurden zwischenzeitlich erhöht.

    We really enjoyed our rooftop dining experience. Bitterballen appetizer and drinks to start followed by delicious fresh salads and a perfectly prepared steak with a generous amount of bernaise. Service was friendly and efficient and running into friends a bonus! We’ll be back

    One of my favorite restaurants. Excellent wine list. I always like the Dutch specialties like Bitterballen and hutspot. This time I had the flounder with king crab (very little crab). I will stick with the steaks.

    Dined here on a beautiful Friday evening. Before our reservation we sat up at the rooftop area to get drinks and we were offered a table up top which was amazing! The cocktails were amazing and actually had a good pour of alcohol in them too. The table ordered the charcuterie board and chicken sate as appetizers, the Rembrandt (cooked well done, rare, and pittsburgh rare) and then mac n cheese, Brussel sprouts, and hutspot. I don’t think there was a thing left on the table afterwards! Every single thing was 10/10. Would definitely go back even to just have a drink on the promenade. Great setting, service, and food. A must try.

    I have dined at Lisse before as this is a great place when you want to impress people. The rooftop deck is a great setting. Don't let the steakhouse theme deter any non meat eaters...the fish options are great. Everything was beautifully plated and tasted great. Our server, Erin was amazing.

    We couldn't have asked for a better experience - The space...the service...the food were all excellent - We will be going back! If it is your first time in the area we'd suggest getting there a little early...skip trying to find street parking and go right for the public lot or garage

    Absolutely delicious meal from start to finish! We celebrated a family birthday on a Saturday evening with drinks, appetizers, mains, and sides (even ordered a few desserts to go). Our server was great -- answered all our questions on appetizers and sides so we didn't under/over order. Service was quick despite being a party of seven. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and all dishes were very flavorful. We would definitely dine here again and would recommend Lisse as a great steakhouse!

    We have wanted to dine here for a while and finally went for our anniversary. We have dined at most of the high end steak houses you think of and this is the best. We each had a filet, the creamed spinach (best we've had), the Mac and cheese (lives up to its reputation) and the Hotspot (great surprise) we also had the Kaassouflé as an appetizer which I recommend. Cocktails were excellent as well. It's our new favorite place. Arrive early as parking can be tough if you dont know the area but there is street parking and garages nearby. It is a special occasion or use the company card restaurant as it will be about $100 per person with drinks and all. However, you should definitely experience it.
