I just came in today, it's hardly busy. Its a beautiful day but on a Friday during day it's hardly ever busy... The coffee list is amazing. I love their losantville blend from Guatamala. They have a few coffee cocktails which are good for when you feel under the weather at 10 am. They have a eclectic wine selection and... More

Much like a European coffee shop small but on a crowed day we found it easy to get a table. The coffee is excellent and puts starbucks to shame. Great atmosphere but unfortunately it is an omen of gentrification and the hipsters who inhabit it. Of course I was one of them so suspect in the future they will not... More

I really like this place. Eclectic, great coffees and teas, nice atmosphere. Wine are off the beaten path. A small selection of topshelf liquors. My biggest beef here is the way they pour the wines. Imagine your kids spliting a soda. They eyeball every glass to the point of stingy and more of a taste than a drink.

I frequent this place at least twice monthly. The community blend coffee, cappuccinos, chai tea, expresso, and fruit teas are excellent. The service is wonderful, and the prices are good. I would recommend to anyone who appreciates a good cup of coffee.

Coffee here is really good and the place makes a nice break in touring around OTR. The venue is pleasant but a little tight. They have wines too and attract a lot of customers for the wines.

I love going to 1215 Wine Bar and challenging myself to a wine flight! I love playing the guessing game to see how good I ACTUALLY am at wine tasting. I have learned a lot and enjoy my visit every time. Plus it has a great location near OTR restaurants... when you're waiting 1+ hours for your dinner... stop in!

Cincinnati would probably fall short on its dog friendliness but there are a few gems within the city that are ok with dogs. 1215 is one of them for being able to sit outside and have a drink. The server was so nice and let me order from the patio and even brought water for my best pal. I bring... More

I'm elated to the fact that my first 21st visit to a bar wasn't exactly at a "bar" most people think of when they hear the term. You know — the bars that reek of cigarette smoke, the dated game machines, obnoxious annoying cover band, and most beers on tap consist of domestic beers that taste awful. This place is... More

My date and I went into 1215 on a Saturday evening after we left Ensemble Theater. We were looking to have a quiet drink and explore a new place. On this unseasonably warm January night, customers were actually seated outside at a couple of tables, but we ventured inside to a relatively full room and found a small table near... More
