Good restaurant with interesting choices. I had the Chicken with butternut dumplings and really liked them more and more with each bite. We also tried the corn cakes and they were different, but really good. We went on Christmas Eve to try something different. Pretty inside but no view of the city. Restaurant is located in the Hyatt.

I didn't particularly care for the maple bacon cookies we had for dessert, but other than that everything from food to service to ambiance was fantastic. Of particular note, the curry cauliflower was outstanding, and this is coming from someone who does not like cauliflower at all. The burger and ribs were also extremely tasty, and the cocktails were on point. Look forward to going back! More

Discover Cincinnati – Dayton

German heritage shines through Cincinnati’s dining culture, but recently the city’s been heating up with creative new cuisine, too. Cincinnati’s own Chef Jose Salazar was shortlisted for a James Beard Award, bringing national attention to an Ohio outlier. A new crop of farm-to-table European restaurants have been entering the scene as well. Downtown, you’ll find burger restaurants, bars, and upscale bistros. An hour’s drive to Dayton places you in the heart of a growing music scene, and the city is the unofficial funk capital of the country. We’ll cheers to that.
