Some friends and I went to the Palm Court after a long day attending a local conference. The drinks were fantastic, and as a treat I got the mini dessert - delicious!!! I would certainly visit again during future conferences in Cincinnati.

Elegant, refined and worth a visit just for the visual opulence. The art deco surroundings, gourmet food choices and perfect (not exaggerating) service make this a "must see" dining adventure.

The food here should have been mush because it tasted like it fell from Heaven. The deserts gave me an out of body experience.
