Great food and a really friendly staff! - Edit

I really enjoyed going to The Elusive Cow with my family! After having horrible service getting a snack at a nearby restaurant near Cincinnati, we ended up at this place for our meal. It really made me appreciate the wonderful staff!

When we got there, I let our server know that we were vegan. I asked about their onion rings, and their kitchen staff offered to make them vegan because they were a bit slow at the time. The onion rings were beer battered and amazing!

The waitress let us know that all of their vegetarian options were actually vegan. There were several to pick from. I ordered the falafel wrap with the coconut curry soup as my side, and my husband had the tempeh sliders with tempeh bacon and fries. Both meals were totally delish. I would come back here again, AND I could see meeting omni-family for a meal here because they have something for everyone.

Pros: Plenty of vegan options, Wonderful staff , Delicious food

so freaking delicious - Edit

Delicious options for all kinds of diets! My family (all omnivores) had burgers and said they were some of the best they've ever had. We also tried the portabella fries. I had the tempeh sliders with kale slaw 😵 seriously so good. Great beer selection, great service, great food! Wish I could give 5 stars.

That falafel pita though... - Edit

We just love this place. Several vegan options, though I don't take advantage like I should bc I'm too obsessed with the falafel pita w/ dairy-free tzatziki to branch out. But I have also had the tempeh sliders (delicious) and a few cashew-cream based soups. The soups rotate so there is not always one available, you just have to ask. I told the waitress they should offer a vegan dessert and she said they've been thinking about it - hope that happens soon. They've got several other vegan or veganizable sandwich options too.

Pros: Delicious food, Several vegan options

Pleasantly Surprised - Edit

Great atmosphere. It looks like a neighbourhood bar, but the menu is terrific. Waitress was friendly and helpful. Food was simple yet delicious. I wish I was staying in Cincinnati longer and I would eat there again tomorrow.

Pros: Atmosphere, menu

Cons: Dining room is small

Wonderful neighborhood place - Edit

Nice atmosphere, terrific service and price. I had the tempeh sliders, which were nicely seasoned and very good, and kale slaw. There are 2 kinds of kale side salads. My friend had the falafel in pita, which she liked. Very good beer selection too. Nice, neighborhood place in quaint Bellevue, just across from downtown Cincinnati. I plan to return to try their other vegan items!

They have an awesome vegan vegetable lasagne on their menu till about 7/10/15. Best I've ever had!
