Try The Chef's Burger!

We started with the sweet peppers filled with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon. The bacon was a little crispy for my tastes and overall the flavor combination just wasn't for me. We also had the brussels sprouts. They seemed to be steamed, not roasted. I usually prefer the latter, but they... read more

We ate at The Palace and met John McLean, a fabulous Maître d'. We had Brenda as our Waitress, a consummate server! She took such wonderful care of us and did a phenomenal job with the wine pairing for our 9 course dinner. The quality of the wines for the price points of each wine was amazing!

I came here with some friends while in town for a baseball game at Great American. We made reservations over the phone after calling several other places beforehand that were all booked up. Upon arrival, we weren't sure if we fit in amongst the fancy decor, but the wait staff was very accommodating and didn't seem to care. I am... More

My husband and I went all out with the 9 course tasting menu with wine pairings this past weekend. We were very pleased. Chris and Chris made the night extra enjoyable by walking us through each delicious course. Wonderful job, guys! It's obvious that the restaurant has seen more crowded days (we were 1 of only 3 tables at 7:30... More

We dined there on Saturday evening and had a great experience. Food was delicious across the board. We did not order the 5 course, but did order 2 courses and dessert. Lamb, ribeye and sole were ordered and everyone tasted and raved about the meal. Service was top notch, as you would expect at the Palace. We will return the... More

It is so hard to find an Easter buffet that is not just a ton of food of mediocre quality. At the Palace, we had an excellent buffet brunch with friendly service that was there when we needed it without being intrusive. We enjoyed ourselves a lot. I do think that the room is a bit awkward and the decoration... More

Have been to many restaurants in Cincy and other cities, and The Palace is now in the elite, and among the best. I had the five course meal, and my girlfriend had a three course meal. The taste and flavors, presentation, and the service were all impeccable. Between courses, the chef would surprise us with various tastings. This was not... More

The Palace has developed into one of the best in a city with a lot of fine dining. It's a special place to propose, or to celebrate a birthday or anniversary, or just to have a wonderful meal with good friends.

(Well, it is right next to Tiffany's!). This is an old-fashioned hotel restaurant that serves elegant entrees. It's certainly not the healthiest meal in town, but they have been accomodating of my request for "hold the oil egg white spinach omelettes." Very nice staff!
