This is such a mixed review, and I like the food so much, but I am compelled to be honest, so I will have to endure atavistic guilt. The dinner menu at The Palace is amazing, perhaps only rivaled by Orchard's in the Queen City. The new young chef oozes talent, and there was not one thing served that wasn't... More

What a wonderful experience! We celebrated by going to dinner at The Palace restaurant last night. As always we felt welcomed in the quiet, luxurious “white table cloth” surroundings. Initially the menu structured to “Strongly” encourage a 5 course tasting menu for $75 per person surprised us. We jumped in and were rewarded with a frolic thru tastes and styles... More

We enjoyed the food and the service was good but too expensive for what we were served. We ordered the five course dinner. We liked the Orchid Room much better.

I was shocked at how good the breakfast burrito was... Beware of the "Ghost" cheese if you don't like spicy. It was great, but I like heat.

It was with great anticipation that two friends and I arrived at the lovely Cincinnatian Hotel to have luncheon at their restaurant, The Palace. The hostess was very gracious and showed us to our table in a lovely.....and almost deserted...room. From then on, it was downhill. The service was slow and unpleasant...verging on rude, the food was not good, and... More

Restaurant week in Cincinnati occurs at many downtown restaurants, this year August 11 to 17, 2014; with restaurants offering a limited choice 3 course menu for $35 per person. The Palace was outstanding for service, exceptional main course, and little "extras" that made this a memorable dinner. We will definitely return to order from the full menu.

Cincinnati has become a great place for great restaurants and this is not one. Our anniversary was Saturday night! We thought - how how about The Palace? The menu gave us two choices - either an all vegetarian dinner of small plates or small plates that included meat.....for a whopping $79.00!! The wine pairings started at $50.00!! There were no...

The new prix-fixe menu designed by their new chef, Joe West is amazing! You can pick several levels of courses 3, 4, 5 or 9. You pay based on the number of courses. The food is amazing, the presentation is beautiful and the taste is unbelievable! this is not an inexpensive restaurant, so if you do not want the full... More

Fantastic! Loved the flavors. The staff was extremely nice. Many of our guests felt the same way and ate there for many meals.
