A great moment with great friends. The food was awesome from starters to desserts and the service absolutely perfect. Despite the decorum which looks like a bit "ancient", the cuisine is creative and delightful. This is one of my favorites downtown Cincinnati.

Located in an old downtown hotel, food is great, service very classy, and the art deco environment really ads to the ambiance.

Elegant dining experience without stuffy overtones. My husband surprised me with dinner here for my birthday; the staff went out of their way to make the evening a delight. The food was fabulous; the staff was attentive without hovering. Can't wait to go back!

The food is very good, but the atmosphere for your dining pleasure is serene & peaceful. Your conversation can be romantic, all business, or conversation with friends on a girls night out with a bottle of wine. It was absolutely superb.

Beautiful atmosphere. Wonderful service. Went there for a birthday dinner and it was delightful from beginning to end. On the expensive side but worth it for a special occasion.
