The Orchids at Palm Court (in the Hilton Netherland) in downtown Cincinnati provided a wonderful evening. Beautiful ambiance takes you back with a stunning art deco décor, the furnishings and very high ceilings with art and metal provides an opulent feel. Extremely attentive, but not intrusive, wait staff were friendly and knowledgeable about the food and wines. The food was great, artfully presented and the surprising extras sent from the kitchen were a delight. I had the braised short ribs and they were perfect.
The prices seemed a bit steep for Cincinnati, but the experience was so upscale I didn’t mind at all. I will absolutely return when I am back in town.
