My husband and I came to The Palace for Restaurant Week. We had several courses. The menu was fantastic with Pork Belly, king crab pot pie, filet, Marlin, French toast dessert and creme brûlée. Check out the pictures. The flavors were fantastic. Small mid-courses were presented between meals. It was a fantastic experience and looking forward to their take on... More

They need to just close this place and completely refurbished the menu. We ate breakfast as part of our hotel package but it was a complete waste. My knife had dried food on it and looked like it had gone through the grinder.Limited on beverages, they did not have hot chocolate available for breakfast. Our sausage links were still pink...

We dined at The Palace during restaurant week and it was disappointing in a number of ways. This was once elegant dining that I would now classify as what you might expect in a hotel. We began the evening with a bottle of wine. The waiter opened the bottle and in doing so spilled wine from the bottle onto the... More

We dined last night with another couple at The Palace Restaurant.The service was excellent and the maitre'd, John McLean, assured us of a wonderful dining experience. We ordered the 3 course dinner and were treated to several amuse bouches from the kitchen beforehand. The presentation of each dish was a work of art with everyone thoroughly enjoying their selections. A... More

Had a wonderful 3 course meal (plus 3 amuse bouche) in a great setting. Could not have been a more pleasant evening with great service and food! They know how to make it a dining experience.

This restaurant is among my very favorites...it's in the top three in Cincinnati. Very attentive service, an extensive menu, well made drinks, solid wine list at fair prices, friendly staff...as they say...What's not to like??? I also love the tranquil, peaceful atmosphere where conversation is enjoyable...and you don't have to shout to be heard...Dining for adults!

I wasn't planning much by way of dinner, and had passed up eating at Morton's, McCormick and Schmick's and a Brazilian Steakhouse, but opted instead for the restaurant within my hotel. Palace restaurant was charming, but the food was really the surprise for me. It was truly some of the most fantastic flavors I have had outside of the top... More

We enjoyed a wonderful dinner last night at The Palace Restaurant! It was perfect from the beautiful food to the outstanding service. We enjoyed several courses both prix fixe and a la carte plus delicious wine pairings. Every course was timed perfectly and enjoyed. Between courses we loved the tasty amuse-bouches. The pasta was heaven and the rib eye steak... More

The most expensive dinner I have ever had ($300). Probably wont do it again but it was a good time and a very special occasion (1st Valentines Day together). The food was terrific and the service from top to bottom was top shelf. The menu was set for this evening, so not many choices were needed. We had a great... More

This restaurant has a 5 or 9 course meal that you can opt for ala carte prices or do a fixed price meal. We chose the fixed price 5 course option and we were not disappointed. Each course had 2 selections, so we each chose one and then shared. It was a 2+ hour relaxing, delicious dining adventure.
