Description: This cozy, colorful Mt. Adams restaurant serves David H. Cook’s exquisitely composed, restlessly imaginative fare. Nothing is alien to Cook, who has earned a reputation over the years for innovative dishes that often dazzle the palate. In a more subdued mood, he might put his own twist on a traditional dish, creating a hearty Pan Seared Duck Breast with garganelli pasta and Vermont White Cheddar. But then there are the go-for-broke dishes like sea scallops with corn belini, creme fraiche ice cream and crisp spinach. Outlandish, perhaps, but it proves itself on the plate. Even at his most experimental, Cook shows good taste and restraint, paying close attention to texture and the interplay of unusual flavors. No one has a finer hand with foie gras. The domestic brand Cook uses is pan-seared, served with an ever-changing "lazy susan" of ingredients, from sweet to savory, which is served with a complimentary glass of late harvest. You will be amazed with the "Big City" dining!

Daveed's Next is stuck away in a small strip mall in Loveland, Ohio. It is an intimate little restaurant, with low top and high top tables together with a "Chef's Bar" and offers a predominantly "small plate" menu which changes on a nightly basis. The restaurant is only open on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and the facility is used for... More

My wife and I came here for a food tasting for our wedding. When we try each dish, we looked at each other in could not believe what we just tasted. How does one describe the flavor and surprises that just happen in our mouth? All we can say is dam what the hell happen!!! We said wait to our... More

Only open Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Small, a bit cramped and noisy. Small menu with daily specials. The portions are small and the menu designed for each diner to have 3 or 4 or 5 different plates. Depending upon what you order it is entirely possible you will still be hungry. The food is outstanding. Fresh, tasty, creative. Nicely presented.... More

Do not try the tastings menu - unless you plan to go somewhere else to eat afterward. For the price, you think you are getting a meal, but you are not. We were there for 3 hours in the most uncomfortable chair possible. About every 20 minutes, we would get about 3-4 bites of food. I normally take food home... More

The food was excellent, our new favorite place to eat. Couldn't stop oohing, aahing and mmming. We choose a restaurant with a tasting menu for special occasions as they are usually so expensive. Daveed's was very reasonable. The staff was very friendly, service was great.

This place was recommended to me by a local I met the night before at the Montgomery Inn. It was a great recommendation. I had the white sangria, the Mac and Cheese, shrimp and grits and the scallops. All were excellent.

I took my boyfriend out to dinner at Daveed's new location in Loveland. They moved from the Mt. Adams area and changed their concept. We loved the change. We sat at the chef's bar and ordered multiple small plates that were reasonably priced and had a delightful multicourse dinner with some wonderful wine. I don't know which I liked best,... More

While on a business meeting in Cincinnati, we had an outing to Daveed's for dinner one of the evenings. The huge room on the second floor was comfortable and quiet, and easily accommodated our large group of 20+ business associates. The food consisted of pre-set 5-course dinner venue (the main entree offered a choice of 3 dishes). In addition, during... More

I went there for dinner with my wife for a special occasion. Daveed was very good but not the top restaurant in Cincinnati. The location is in Mt Adams, but there are no views from this restaurant. Further, the interior is understated – it is strictly about the food. We had their signature martini’s which were very good. I had... More
