Breakfast near Tiffany's

(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!

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.

The staff was gracious and attentive. The food was excellent. Great start to the day. It was almost too much food. They are very generous.

I had a business dinner there with about 15 people. Food was average. The service was good. There was nothing particular special about the restaurant.

Enofile1 summed up the situation with The Palace perfectly. Joe West is a fantastic chef and his food was absolutely top quality - and he does not belong here. In addition to the abysmal ambience and the service that is 10 steps behind the cuisine, we stood at the front desk for at least 15 minutes before we were helped.... More

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.
