Welcome! Dilly Cafe's an independent, family-owned restaurant with a 26 year history in the National Historic Landmark Village of Mariemont, Ohio, just east of downtown Cincinnati along Rt.50, also known as Wooster Pike. We have grown into a full-service, contemporary American bistro-style eatery recognized as having one of the best wine and beer programs in the country. Indeed, Wine Spectator Magazine has awarded us their "Best of Award of Excellence" award two years in a row (with a special recognition for value!) Both RateBeer.com and BeerAdvocate.com have recognized our draft and retail beer selections as among the best in the world. And ah, the food! From fresh grilled salmon fillet, to Ohio-made pastas, to grilled filet mignon, to our signature Grilled Shrimp & Asparagus Salad (a CityBeat Magazine "Best" winner!), every hungry diner is sure to find that special meal that hits the spot. Reservations for indoor dining room only (no reservations for the patio).

As previously noted there are two good restaurants close to the Mariemont Theatre. Both offer somewhat similar fare, but Dilly is a bit more causal. Wide range of draft and bottled beers, plus an extensive wine menu, has extra appeal. Dilly’s menu ranges from soups and salads to full entrees... read more

Went to a late afternoon movie with friends at the Mariemont Theater and then headed over to the "Dilly Deli" cafe. Relaxed sharing an excellent bottle of wine, prior to dinner, and lingered quite a while, after we ate. Food was very good, as was the atmosphere. The staff was a delight. We frequent this place frequently and are never... More

Had heard many good things about this place and we finally tried it out today. They have a great beer and wine selection both for immediate consumption and to purchase to take home. It is a very casual environment and they do have a kids menu. They accept reservations and I suggest you make one, they are always busy. My... More

The Dilly Cafe’s new chief chef, Phil Kurtz, has arrived, bringing incredible expertise and a passion for creation. As of now, Phil prepares weekend specials which have turned out to be experiments in the finest dining. For example, this weekend featured the best dinners: tender flat iron steak, creamy polenta with mushrooms, crispy asparagus ultimately succulent salmon (seared and then... More

This is a real gem of a place located in downtown Mariemont. This is both a wine shop and restaurant. The chef is excellent and you will find some delicious choices on the menu. The beer and wine selection is immense as you can pick off the menu and/or pick up something in the wine store to drink. They have... More

My girlfriend and I came here for a quiet lunch the other day while checking out Mariemont, and we really enjoyed it. The pace is slow, but that was fine because we were just looking to relax. I had the Thanksgiving "gobbler" sandwich, and she had the turkey club. Both were good, but we liked the beer cheese to start... More

We were easy to please here and ordered the preferred salad. Definitely a winner! Add a nice glass of wine and you can't go wrong.

My son suggested this spot for lunch--he still calls it by its old name, Dilly Deli, and I think that's more charming--anyhow, we arrived around noon on a Wednesday and we were seated immediately. The place is sited in a rather upscale neighborhood, the facility would be a strip mall except the architecture looks old-world and expensive. The cafe itself... More

First of all, the drive to Mariemont is worth it even if you do not come to this restaurant. Just walk around and take in the quaint scenery of this small village outside of Cincinnati. Dilly's food and spirits were high quality, and they had a great selection. The bier cheese was excellent and a great starter. The crab cakes... More
