My wife and I ate here recently for a Sunday brunch. The food and service were both superb! The dining area is also very comfortable. We took a tour of the hotel and bar areas, and we will definitely be back. If your looking for an overnight stay in downtown Cincy and you want something "different", this is the place!... More

My sister and I stayed on Friday 10/29, which was incredibly busy for the holiday. Everything was fantastic! Despite not having a dinner reservation and arriving at 6p on Halloween weekend they were very happy to accommodate us. The 4 course meal was SO awesome with both my steak and her chicken being beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The... More

Their dining room featured a 5 course menu that was very interesting and delicious. You could also order A La Carte and it was very good.

We were the only people in the restaurant on a Sunday morning, not sure why? The bloody marys are good and omelets are excellent. A beautiful little restaurant.

We were really looking forward to having Sunday brunch at the Symphony Hotel. We made reservations, because we understood it is a boutique style hotel, with a small dining area. First issue, receiving a call the night before at 10pm, with no voicemail left. How do I know that they called? Because I Googled the phone number of the missed... More

This restaurant is in the same building as the hotel, and is very nicely restored to Victorian times. The restaurant has expanded to the next building and has several nice rooms, and there is a deck. Sunday brunch was delightful with Mimosa's and very tasty omelette's. It is next to Music Hall and the parking in Washington Park garage is... More

The four of us enjoyed our Easter brunch experience. We each ordered a separate omelette and each of us was very pleased. The restaurant is filled with historic character. The family especially enjoyed the comfy pillows that lined the booth seating.

I have lived in Cincinnati for quite some time and have been aware of the hotel. We had brunch this past weekend and was surprised on how lovely it is. For the price point, it is really great and I love the tea and coffee menu. We had the tea which was served in a french press and mismatched china.... More

On the first floor of a boutique hotel. Four of us went for brunch. Not a big menu, but fresh ingredients and good food. We were all happy with our meal. Good value too. A pick of a great variety of sides come with your main entree. More unique than other OTR restaurants.

My wife and I frequent OTR but this was our first dinner at the Symphony Hotel Restaurant; we dined there Feb 13 for Valentine's Day. They do have a limited menu and you have to pre-order your entrée before your visit to make certain that they do not run out of any offering. We went with the 5 course dinner... More

Symphony Hotel and Restaurant is an award winning boutique hotel with a full service restaurant and lounge that was developed by restoring a late 1800's private townhome and the buildings adjacent. It is located in Over the Rhine across from Music Hall and Washington Park. The historic dining room has a large original elegant Victorian bas-relief lady that adorns dinner guests while they un-wine-d and enjoy their gourmet two, three or five course dinner freshly made in our kitchen. Our chefs offer a "New American" Cuisine that follows the new American health conscious food trend. They create a menu using locally sourced fresh ingredients, wild caught fish, free range chicken and highly creative vegetarian dishes for a memorable dining experience. Our Pre-concert dinners are 5 course. Sunday brunch offers classic dishes, an espresso/tea bar and fresh squeezed juices. Reservations are recommended although walk-ins are welcome upon availability.
