This is our go to restaurant for celebrating. The food and service are amazing. The price is reasonable considering the experience. If you haven't tried the Orchid Room you are missing out!

If you're spending the night in Cincinnati downtown and you want to see the premier indoor venue this is the place to be. The bar as excellent, the bar staff has been working there for 20 plus years on average and the Orchids and Palm Court are amazing as well. Highly recommended.

From when you enter the dining room and get a napkin based on your attire to the service of your dinner, when a phalanx of servers lift plate covers in unison and finally to the desserts. The whole experience is remarkable and special!

My visit was with a high school reunion group (1957) with 10 friends. Just being at the Netherland Hilton is a wonderful occasion but, this one was exceptional.Outstanding food and service really sets them apart. Another good point is that the ambiance is so pleasant-no ear splitting noise like most other restaurants. It got 5star rating from all of us.

you're made to feel accomplished by the staff and by the just shy of opulent surroundings, a martini (or likely any cocktail) simply tastes better in their bar.
