Everything we did here was a 5 star. From the ease of the online reservation, the waiter already knowing it was my wife's birthday, the no rush atmosphere, the amazing food, and obviously the view. All amazing.

Primavista offers great food, especially the desserts, in a beautiful atmosphere. The restaurant itself is very romantic and it has a great view of downtown Cincinnati and the Ohio River. The service was fantastic and we were never for want of anything. The tiramisu was the best I have ever have. The one downside is that Primavista is a bit pricey for what you get. If you have a special occasion, though, it is definitely worth a visit.

The opening of the Incline House next door has Primavista upping their game! There is a noticeable improvement on our last few visits compared to years past in all areas - service, food quality and ambiance. Of course nothing beats the view of the city from nearly every table-perfect for a romantic night out.

Located high in the West Hills overlooking Cincinnati, Primavista provides a view of the city lights, the river and the stadium that is unmatched. There's not much to rave about here, though, other than the view. The Sunday evening we dined here, the food was undistinguished and the service slow and inattentive. While it would make sense to dine her once just for the view, there's nothing to compel a second visit. Getting to Primavista is a bit confusing and requires driving through some intense looking parts of Cincinnati. All in all, a disappointment, given the raves I have read from other customers.

Little hard to find but worth the effort. It is located on Price Hill the west side of Cincinnati. The restaurant is located on the ground level of a high rise condo building which has awesome views of Cincinnati and the Ohio River with Kentucky hillsides as a back drop. The service and food is excellent. You can order anything from spaghetti with veal meatballs for $18 up to New Zealand Lamb chops for $38. Soups and salads are great also. Fine dining with a great view.
