We came by Vitor's (Bonsai) for our first trip to the West side. The atmosphere was nice inside amidst a little historic district in Cheviot-Westwood. Unfortunately, it was a little empty given the abundance of "fish frys" that go on Fridays during Lent. We had the sushi bar all to our self though! Our chef was very professional and personable,...

Best brunch I've ever had! The French Toast is absolutely amazing and the bonus is there's even a dessert version so you can order it whenever you want! Dinner options are also delicious and I have yet to have better sushi in the city. I know that if Vitor's was located downtown or in OTR, there would constantly be a... More

Nice hidden little gem to visit. The atmosphere was great for couples, the food was excellent although it was a bit pricey and the portions were a little on the small side. If you're looking for a great date place, this is it.

After two years living in the Cincinnati area, I decided to try Vitor's brunch. After reading the reviews I was expecting great flavor, but it just did not happen. We had made reservations and were seated within a reasonable time, but had to wait a long time for our breakfast.My french toasts were good, but the Italian pannini my mother... More

I hosted a group of four for the 5-course meal fall menu. Two of the four were new to Vitor's and apprehensive about having a set menu. Our waitor could not have made the evening any more enjoyable! He was fantastic with the newbies and put their food fears to rest. The food was exceptional as always. I can't wait... More

This out of the way bistro is situated in a small shopping area. Its exterior does little to suggest that the bistro is a European oasis of calm and good food. First impressions are of a classic bistro with miss matched furniture and china until you look closer and realize it’s all a cleaver illusion. We had the 5 course... More

second visit to this great little restaurant. this time we dined outside on the patio. Food was great and liked the personal attention from the owner. Very creative seasonal menu. Loved the fried green tomato salad, the raviolli appetizer & of course the french toast dessert. Service was a little slow. We had to ask twice for refills on our... More

First and foremost the food was outstanding. We went for Sunday brunch to celebrate my grandfathers 85th birthday, and had a large group of 16. This was highly recommended, and I a very happy we gave it a try. However, the service was the slowest I have ever experienced: the owner/chef forgot our reservation so we had to wait 20... More

Vitor's not only exceeds expectations on a regular basis but is a wonderful place to consider if you are planning a special event: shower, anniversary, rehearsal dinner etc. The staff and chef will work closely with you to ensure that your every need is met and that everything is taken care of smoothly. True, the cost is a little higher... More
