About the restaurant
It is a concept of casual intimacy and communal romance. Sotto is the art of simplicity, a steward of restraint. It’s undressed, gutsy and human. It is fire, meat, wheat, and laughter. Above all, Sotto is Italian.

About the restaurant
For Jeff Ruby, this is the steakhouse that started it all. In 1981, The Precinct was born in the former Cincinnati Police Patrol House Number 6. This turn-of-the-century, Romanesque-style structure would hold what is now the longest, continuously running fine dining restaurant in the city.
Recently named one of America's Top 10 Steakhouses by USA Today and Gayot.com, The Precinct is frequently recognized as having Cincinnati’s best steaks, seafood, and service. This consistent, high level of quality and overall guest experience over 4 decades has endeared Precinct to celebrities, business people, families, and loyal diners alike. The Precinct also offers a quaint outdoor patio area where guests may dine.

We really enjoyed our first visit to Red Feather Kitchen. Allyssa was our waitress and she was excellent. Explained everything,made suggestions and took the time to talk with us but she didn’t hover. She was very attentive and was there when she needed to be but otherwise let us enjoy our time together there. The food was delicious and we especially enjoyed the poke. Unique presentation and wonderful flavor. Everything was well prepared and timed extremely well. Thanks Allyssa for making our dinner special.

About the restaurant
There’s character at every table. Whether you sit in one of our farmhouse dining rooms, the industrial-design style pub, or outdoor by the fire listening to live entertainment, you’ll enjoy a culinary experience which can’t be found anywhere else in our neighborhood.

Our menu utilizes the best in farm-to-table cooking, paired with a specially chosen wine list, a deep selection of craft beers, and classic cocktails with a spin. Our in-house pastry chef caps off your experience and satisfies your sweet craving with delicious sweets, cakes and pastries.

This is gourmet comfort food with a creative twist. We want to challenge your expectation of suburban dining, bringing a bit of downtown Cincinnati’s gastronomy scene to Liberty Township.

Patio seating is first come first serve and we do not take reservations for the patio but will always try to honor requests. Due to high demand for patio seating this season we will require that the entire party has arrived prior to being seated.

If there were 10 stars, I'd put them all on our server, Bryan Castaneda. We started coming back to Melting Pot in Cincinnati because of Bryan. We feel like we know Bryan just because of the relationship we've been able to build with him because of him just being him! A role model that I would recommend to any server and young and older people. Everything about Bryan is a 10+. Timing is everything at Melting Pot. Some servers have hit the mark and some don't, but he hits it every single time plus his personality, care and details to the small things that you wouldn't even think about. Way to go go Bryan, you are an ACE!!!!
