PrimavistaMy wife and I have been coming to the Primavista
for years. We've always enjoyed the food and the
service.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation celebration dinnerTo celebrate 3 years of hard work in the city I've come to love, my family made reservations at Prima Vista. We had never been there before, but it came highly recommended. We requested a window table and they obliged, and there was a rainbow when we got there! The restaurant was busy with prom-goers, but the staff was still great and our water glasses were never empty. The food was delicious, the wine was great, and we left feeling like this was the perfect way to celebrate with or family. Thanks!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMStill The OneNo question about it, this is still the best overall restaurant in Cincinnati5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good choiceThe food was outstanding as always! Not a bad seat in the house. I like that the staff does not rush you through dinner.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great meal at PrimavistaMaybe the next time I am there I will just go straight to the bread pudding, and that is not to say my meal was not good, it was great.
The bread pudding has always been a fine dessert, but Saturday evening it hit me as one of the finest desserts I can remember. Did something change in the ingredients or the cooking process? I don't know but it worked for me.
My sister's birthday dinner was excellent and the Primavista has become our go-to place for family celebrations. Thank you for a wonderful dinner. Looking forward to our next visit in the very near future.
Ken5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceReally a wonderful restaurant. The view was amazing, and the food was very good. But beware, it is pricey, especially if you order alcohol. We had two dinners, two alcoholic drinks, and a virgin drink...and the bill was $80. A bit more than expected, but we would likely still go back again because it really was great overall.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful evening all aroundThis is a fave of ours. We always have an excellent meal and wonderful service. Theentire staff makes the experience fun. I highly recommend Prima Vista to everyone, and get the calamari, its the best!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing viewAmazing view. Food was good, but not excellent - but that may just be personal taste.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Service & View in CincinnatiI always love dining at Primavista... and I have never had a waiter or waitress who wasn't highly trained, attentive, knowledgeable about the menu... and a good people person. No stuffy waitstaff here... not even with the ambience. Our waitress Michele last night was one of the best we've ever had. She treated the two of us as though we were her only table, even though we weren't drinking wine and running up the tab (the kind of table most waiters dread)... and she had a terrific laugh when we included her in our jokes. The food was wonderful... as always. I had scallopine alla discepoli and it was a treat... veal, shrimp, mushrooms & artichokes in a cream sherry garlic butter sauce. The sunset was lovely -- all was perfect.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful dinner with a view!Everything was wonderful. Our server was attentive and friendly. We requested a table with a view, and boy, did they deliver! Our table was right up next to the window. My friends said the Calimari was delicious, and the snail and mushroom appetizer was absolutely delectable! We dipped our bread in the sauce until the plate was clean. My husband said the Veal dish he ordered (a leg roast of some kind) was the best meat he'd ever had. I had the Veal with some kind of ham and cheese on it, and it was very good. A friend had the Striped Bass, and she said it was fantastic. The margaritas there were delicious. We may have had too many, sorry other diners if we were too loud, but we were having fun! The tiramisu was decadent.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was great experience! GreatIt was great experience! Great service, great food! Bread pudding is awesome!!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant anywhereWe dine at Prima Vista quite often because it is, by far, the best dining experience one could ever have!

Excellent food and selection. The service for our table was OK, however the service at the table beside us was excellent. Definately a repeat visit is in store.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood took longer than expected,Food took longer than expected, but the staff was very apologetic and compensated some desert. Fantastic meal!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe experience is breath takingThe experience is breath taking however the seating arrangement is a little uncomfortable. While the tables with the direct view make it unforgetable, the tables directly in front of these kind of take away from the view. Also go at night if you can the view at night is much better. The food is excellent and the portions are large.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a specialGreat place for a special evening, awesome view, amazing food, wonderful service!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were each outstanding. We would have liked to have had a table by the window, but I am sure that would be the preference of all diners. Primavista is one of our special night restaurants and we look forward to returning.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautifulBeautiful view. Delicious desserts. The staff were adequate but did not go out of their way to make you feel special. The salmon I had tasted fishy.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great! We went onFood was great!

They didn't disappoint!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMCurrently can be tricky toCurrently can be tricky to find due to road construction on 6th St Viaduct. Study map before going until construction is complete.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this place grate food,Loved this place grate food, people, and view was to die for. I will be going back again3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMUnimpressed againThe service is top notch and the view of the city is breathtaking no matter what table you are sitting at.Now the cons:The tables are arranged uncomfortably close and the food was mediocre.I had the Saltimbocca which is presented like a pizza with a hard, thick layer of cheese on top. The procuitto and over abundance of cheese overpowered the flavor of the veal and it was cold. The greenbeans were cooked perfectly. The gorgonzola polenta was one of the best things that I have ever tasted. We ordered the Calamari Fritti and Ravioli con Pesto alle Noce- both were cooked well, but really needed the seasonings adjusted- we all added salt. The 3 others with me were very disappointed with their meals. Certainly not worth the $100 bill for two.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and well timedGreat food and well timed service, every single course. Great place for evening dining to take in the view of the city below.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating my daughter'sWe were celebrating my daughter's birthday. Our server 'Lois' was fabulous.

Food was superb! Mussels were wonderful as were all the fish entrees. Our waitress was helpful and didn't rush us at all.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMPrima Vista is one of ourPrima Vista is one of our favorite restaurants in Cincinnati. In addition to the great views of downtown Cincinnati and the Ohio River, the food is always outstanding. Our party of 4 all ordered different entrees, and all were impressive and cooked to perfection. The special of the day featuring mahi mahi poached with a lobster butter sauce was superb. We all enjoyed the fresh salads that were dressed with restraint. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. The only negative was that the restaurant was a bit noisy due to the energetic crowd around us. So glad that this neighborhood gem is doing well!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe wine list for wine downThe wine list for wine down Thursday is deceiving. The list is presented with the reduced prices. It is not explained that they are discounted prices.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
