    This is our favorite spot for brunch before we go to the Aronoff. The food is amazing. But the staff is what makes this a destination. Anita (“Nikki”) and John Wong are fabulous. These two go above and beyond at every turn. We highly recommend Sunday brunches. You won’t be disappointed!!

    For the cost and the fact that I made a reservation, there was no one to greet us on arrival. Someone told us to pick a table where we sat for 20 minutes with no menu or drinks. We were asked by 4 different people if we had been helped when finally , someone appearing to be a manager took our order. Very disorganized especially for a higher end restaurant. Food was good but the overall experience was not worth 150.00 for two people. Not sure I’ll go back.

    I was very surprised, in a great way. We made reservations the same day, they had a pretty open reservation… It is a higher end hotel restaurant. Bar was very busy with a large party. Bar made our drinks quickly and nailed it; old fashion and a Long Island. Small well made menu. I had the Duroc pork chop tasted great cooked perfectly; only negative the mushrooms used were prepackaged. Another guest in our party had the Grill Salmon; she’s still talking about how good it was. Beets, quinoa and sauce was excellent together.t

    We came to D. Burnham’s for my husband’s birthday and we had a wonderful experience. Our waiter, Ben, was attentive and the courses came out was we were ready, not rushed and not too slow. The food was very good. We especially enjoyed the berry salad. The staff was really great. They provided a birthday dessert with a personalized message on the plate. The dining space was beautiful and not very crowded. The restaurant is in the Renaissance Hotel, but has a totally separate space. The hotel lobby is lovely too. We had a great experience and highly recommend it.

    We went to D. Burnham's for an early dinner before a downtown show. I went specifically to try the Sea Bass which had been recommended to me by one of the sous chefs during a conversation in which I lamented that I had not been able to find as good of a Sea Bass meal in Cincinnati as I had found in Biloxi, Mississippi. The Miso Glazed Sea Bass was excellent. The fish was the perfect combination of flakiness and firmness and the Miso Glaze was delicious. In general I could give or take asparagus but as some of the glaze had made it's way onto the asparagus, I enjoyed it too. My guest also ordered the Sea Bass and she said her meal was excellent as well. The service was also outstanding. We are looking forward to coming back.

    Since we were staying the night at the Renaissance, we decided to have dinner at DBurnam's for my birthday. It definitely was a 'Perfect 5' and beyond. Our salmon and spareribs were simply delicious and our service was over the top. It wasn't just a dinner, it was an experience. Both our waitress and food director were excellent, treating us like royalty. We hope to be back and will definitely recommend DBurnhams! Thank you DBurnams!

    Way Overpriced! We get way more for our money at Mortons & Jags. $17.00 little Margaritas, outrageous! Butter cake nothing like Maggianos Butter cake. It was dry with icing that tasted awful. My husband enjoys the sparingly spare ribs but requested bread to accompany the dish so that he would get full.

    This is a hidden gem - the food is excellent (and we have high standards having traveled the world!) and the service is top notch. The kitchen staff was very engaged, as was the manager (Mr. Smajlovic) who couldn't have been more polite throughout our dinner - making us feel very much at home. The only negative is that if you go early for dinner - it is very quiet (it's a later evening place we were told). But no complaints in regards to the food experience -- highly recommend if you want a fantastic dinner!

    We ate at D. Burnham’s before the CSO concert and enjoyed an early evening meal of soup, salad and appetizers. Our server was delightful and attentive. Cream of asparagus soup was served hot (my pet peeve is warm soup) and was quite tasty. The hummus was beautifully presented with olives, marinated peppers and grilled pita. The baby kale salad was filled with fresh ingredients and the crab cake was delectable. We will be back!

    Excellent place to go and talk. Not to many places are set up to make you feel you are by yourself. The design of the areas gives you the feel and the noise level is low so you can actually hear the person you are talking with. Service was impeccable. We didn’t even have to ask our server she just did what needed to be done. Food was great. Variety was nice especially 2 different types of fish. Only thing that would have been nice would have been bread. We did get pita.

    Service , decor and food was excellent. The dining area was empty (we were the only people seated) which is usually a sign that the food or service is not good. That could not have been further from the truth. Drinks were delicious. The food was amazing. Sea bass was exceptional as well as the chocolate fudge cake. We will for sure be back. This place is a hidden gem.

    The Valentines dinner was fantastic and it was our first time dining here. We had the salmon and short rib and it was one of our best meals ever. At the end of the meal, they brought over 2 glasses of champagne, 2 chocolate covered strawberries and a heart shaped box of candy. So very impressive!! THANK YOU and we will definitely be back with a group of our friends. Crestview Hills, KY
