DAYTON — Side Bar first opened as a bar only on the ground floor of a downtown Dayton office building that housed several attorney offices — hence the legal theme.
My wife and I visited Sidebar 410 prior to a show at Wiley's comedy club for a much needed "date night". The atmosphere of the restaurant was upscale, something I would expect to see in a place like NYC. I liked how numerous wait staff "shared" service to our table of two. They were very helpful, knowlegeable, friendly, polite, excellent! Instead of the traditional bread and herbed butter, brought to the table, a very flavorful cilantro hummus and pita bread was enjoyed. We tried the drink special a white frothy concoction made with homemade vodka and absinthe,with a hint of orange...very good, but keep in mind it does have a licorice type flavor. I chose the shrimp and chicken skewers and the wife chose the beef tenderloin skewer. We shared and everything was perfectly cooked! Tenderloin cooked medium and amazingly tender, the chicken flavorful and tender as well. No cheap cuts of meat full of grissle, we are talking best cuts here. Squash, potatoes, and delicious risotto completed the meal. Dessert was just as impressive. My wife enjoyed the white chocolate cheesecake with Andean fruit, I had Bruselina, a layered white cake with light frosting and slivered almonds. The bar area had a very "cool/trendy" atmosphere. It is also just across the street from Wiley's comedy club. I would highly recommend SideBar 410 for "date night" with your significant other. We will definitely visit again!
I went here with friends a few weeks ago for the first time. I like how they infuse their vodka with fresh flavors rather than buy flavored vodkas. We also tried several different specialty cocktails, and all were inventively presented and really delicious. We also tried several dishes from the Small Plates menu: the Beef Tenderloin with Cabrales Cheese Sauce, the Pork Filet Mignon, and the Lamb Shank in Malbec Sauce. All were excellent. Since we like sharing dishes, the small plates were great for that and not too filling. We also shared the Tres Leches cake--to die for! The only reason I took a half star off was that several of the dishes came with the same sides, and if you're sharing it can get a little repetitive. Otherwise, the service was great as well. We informed our server that we wanted a really relaxed dinner, kind of just grazing from the menu as we felt like it. He had no problem with that, and was attentive without being intrusive. Lovely place!
