My husband and I have loved our experiences at Prime Cincinnati. The service, ambiance, and the food are a step above most other places. The deviled eggs and crab cakes are delicious appetizers, the lobster mac and cheese and petite filet are phenomenal, and the...More

Party of 8, service was very good, food was very good though I think there’s better value and as good if not better quality at other local establishments for a filet mignon.

Story os too long and ridiculous to tell. You can see my other reviews and I don't give low reviews often. Many other options downtown to spend your money. Exhaust them before you go to Price Cincinnati.

Solid service. Very good food. Priced as you would expect a steak house. Cost effective options on the menu, however, if you want to spend less. Very large bar area that looked really nice. Will go back to sit there.

I wore jeans, heels, and a nice blouse. Others were dressed more formally with jackets, ties, nice dresses. I think as long as it's a collared shirt for guys & no jean shorts and flip flops, anything 'decent' should be... More
