    We expected this downtown Cincinnati restaurant to be crowded at lunchtime on a Thursday afternoon, but we were one of only about four tables occupied in the restaurant. This was fine with us because we wanted something peaceful and quiet where my friend and I could talk without having to shout at each other. The lunch menu is extensive and so many things sounded very appealing. I decided on the Cali Chicken sandwich and my friend had the chicken salad sandwich. Homemade kettle chips were the highlight of the lunch although both sandwiches were excellent. A really nice place for lunch if one is going to the van Gogh exhibit, which is only about a block away. Thoroughly enjoyed our meals!

    A gentleman at the front greeted my friend and I, knew my name from my reservation, let my friend pick out her table as it was her birthday, and surprised us with a free birthday cake for our group of 4. Everyone we interacted with was so kind and friendly. We'll definitely be back!

    We had such a wonderful time at D. Burnhams. The waiter was fabulous. He was very attentive to us and our needs. He answered a thousand questions we had, all with a smile. The food was the best that I have had in a very long time. It is a pricey restaurant, but the portion sizes were large, so I feel like it was worth the cost. I would highly recommend D. Burnham's.

    Servers should take orders first from the ladies, then from the men. Servers should put meal down from the diner’s left and remove from the right. Servers should keep water glasses filled.

    Food was good. The ambience was great because it was quiet and not many people were there. Food took a long time to come out, steaks were not cooked exactly as ordered but we were too hungry to care.

    Food was okay but everything was so disorganized. We had to wait about 45 minutes for drinks. They also double charged some of our party for drinks, but we were so tired of just sitting there we paid the extra ridiculous amount. By the time we left, you could tell just about everyone in the restaurant was experiencing some sort of disappointment with the restaurant- because most people were audible with their thoughts.

    Great place for breakfast. Grabbing a bite to eat after heading back to Louisville, wanting somewhere to have a late breakfast. Our food was fabulous, service outstanding. When we were finishing our meal the manager found out we were driving back home to Louisville. He was so gracious and offered us a couple of bottles of water for the drive. We will definitely come back when we were in town again

    Delicious meal (braised ribs and chicken breast) but very pricey. Service level didn't match price (spilled wine while pouring and did not clean up until asked) and almost breaking water glasses by thumping them down onto glass table top.

    The waiter was not very attentive despite the restaurant being mostly empty. We had to ask for water on more than one occasion. One of our entrees (a kids meal) was missing and eventually showed after we asked, the waiter said the kitchen “was backed up” despite we being only 1 of 4 tables in the restaurant. The waiter credited the entree but again only after we asked to have it removed from the bill. The food was very good but the service was very poor in general. At these prices it should be an amazing experience.

    We were so pleasantly surprised! We chose this based on Open Table ratings and it didn't disappoint. Located in the Rennaisance Hotel, the setting was beautiful, and a nice quiet atmosphere which allowed conversation. Don't miss the stuffed figs for an appetizer....one of the best appetizers ever. We had a mix of steak and seafood, and everyone was very happy with our meals. Truly a hidden downtown gem!

    Went on NYE and had a great experience there. Our server was very attentive and on top of everything all evening. We spent about 2 hours there with an appetizer, drinks, entree, and dessert. The drinks were well mixed, the pretzel appetizer was super fresh, the scallops were perfect, the filet mignon was cooked exactly as requested with a spectacular sear, and the creme brulee had a perfect crystalized sugar crust and texture. Definitely recommend for a nice night out

    Christmas Eve dinner was an enjoyable experience! The entire team took good care of us, handled special requests from the 11-year-old member of our party and offered a complementary taste of champagne for the table (the thoughtfulness of a flute of sparkling apple juice for our 11-year-old was appreciated!). Gave us a very merry start to our holiday!

    This modern and smartly attractive restaurant is located in the Renaissance Hotel. We went on a Saturday for lunch during the holiday hustle, and had the restaurant to ourselves, which made our party of 5 a bit concerned if the food would be fresh and tasty. We chose this restaurant because we needed to meet the needs of carnivores, vegetarians and gluten-free diners. Everything was delicious, hot, and well-presented. Check them out!

    We ate at D. Burnham's because I neglected to make dinner reservations on a night we had theater tickets until the day of the show. This was one of the very few places with an open seating prior to the show. The Service was poor, not once did the waiter come and pour our wine, or check on the quality of the food. The pork belly appetizer was dry, tough, flavorless and required a steak knife to cut it. The "pineapple compote with balsamic vinegar" was raw chunk pineapple with a balsamic drizzle. Both the entrees were overcooked, although the manager did comp the pork belly due to my overcooked steak. (Med well vs Med Rare) For a restaurant that aims to be high-end dining, the execution was disappointing.

    Our experience was very disappointing. We were looking forward to having a nice dinner after kicking off our holiday season at fountain square. Unfortunately D. Burnham's was not up to the Renaissance legacy we have enjoyed in the past and through our travels. We needed to ask our server to bring us menus (after being there 20 minutes and hunting him down), we ordered an appetizer that never arrived (when our food came we told our server to forget the tuna appetizer, his response was hardly an apology), one entree was cooked beautifully the other arrived as a medium not a medium/rare as ordered, although the fries had great flavor they were served to us cool. I would not recommend D. Burnham's, our experience was unfavorable - especially for the cost.
