Orchids is in a stunning setting in the Netherland Plaza Hotel. It is the most spectacular dining setting in Cincinnati hands down. And if that weren't enough reason to go, the food is equal to the magnificence of the room. The flavors and combinations are always interesting, especially in the first and second course options. The service is excellent, but not always quite up to the standards of the room and food. I yearn a bit for the "old days" of tuxedo-clad waiters, which the whole experience deserves, but alas I guess those days are gone.
