We are so excited to welcome our community back for dinner dine-in service! Our team is grateful for the support and love we have received from our neighbors, family and friends.

Our reopening will be done in phases as we work through this new chapter, and we will regularly share important updates with our guests.

Starting on Friday, May 29, at 5 p.m., guests can enjoy an Exemplar dinner in our dining room or outdoor patio! View our dinner hours below:


Monday-Thursday: 5- 9 p.m.

Friday & Saturday: 5- 10 p.m.

Our next phase will soon include the reopening of our restaurant for breakfast, lunch and private events. Stay tuned!

Dinner Dine-In Reservation Procedures 

Reservations are not required, but are highly encouraged. Guests can make their dinner reservation by calling us at (513) 271-2103 or visiting OpenTable. Due to current limited capacity, we cannot guarantee a specific table for indoor and outdoor seating — our policy is first come, first served.

To ensure proper social distancing, parties must be 10 or fewer. We recommend large groups make reservations in advance to avoid long waiting. 

To practice safe social distancing, we encourage guests to wait nearby outside or in their car until their reservation is ready.

In order to safely accommodate our guests, we have scheduled an hour and a half of dining for each party.

If you are arriving late, please call us — we allow a 10-minute window.

Offering a Safe Dining Experience 

Since our first day of operation in 1983, we’ve been committed to providing a safe, enjoyable dining experience that offers the freshest and highest-quality meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

We continue to follow CDC, state and local guidelines, and have pledged to the Ohio Promise — a statewide commitment to protecting our community by practicing the highest standards of safety.

To serve you in the safest, most efficient and seamless manner, we have adopted the following steps:

Guest Experience

  • If you are feeling sick, have a fever, a dry cough, a temperature over 100.4 degrees fahrenheit, or have been around someone that has been experiencing these symptoms, then we respectfully ask that you stay home and order through delivery. 
  • Our indoor and outdoor seating ensures social distancing and includes proper signage to help our guests understand these guidelines.
  • Hand sanitizer, provided by our friends at Northside Distilling, will be available at each table and in common areas. Our restrooms are conveniently located across from our lobby for hand washing. 
  • Masks are encouraged when entering and exiting, but not required.  

Cleaning and Employee Procedures

  • We use a Pure Light UV wand to sweep the entire restaurant daily. This product is also used to disinfect hospitals and other facilities.
  • Our managers are up-to-date on certification requirements, and each employee has received official COVID-19 education.
  • We use Lysol to disinfect and sanitize all common touch points including door handles, tabletops and chairs between each seating. Disposable menus will be used. 
  • Employees are required to wear masks and have their temperature taken upon entering the building. 
  • Gloves are worn to prepare every meal and are immediately changed following each order completion.

Carry Out & Uber Eats 

We continue to offer to-go meals and specialty cocktails seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner. View our to-go menu here.
