My favorite place to take my wife hands down. Interior is beautiful and the live music adds a nice touch. Wait staff is very attentive and friendly. Food is delicious and the menu changes frequently with a few staple things that stay (Chateaubriand etc.)

This may be Cincinnati's finest restaurant. The setting on the 2nd floor of the Omni Netherland Hotel and its art deco furnishings creates a setting of romantic ambience invaded only by too loud a songstress at the nearby bar. The service was personalized for a birthday celebration, it was a tutorial about great food, and it was friendly beyond expectation with great professionalism. The four course dinner was outstandingly presented and enjoyed. My only question for the entire night was whether the selected lamb filet was really lamb-it's flavor was more represented by the beef family.

Service excellent, Live jazz playing in background and located in a building built in the 30's made the ambiance perfect. As we were eating it only got better. The Halibut and filets were fantastic. Expensive but worth every dollar.

The food was fabulous, the service was great. This was a special evening for my daughter's birthday, and it was truly memorable! Only quibble: great music--really!--but a little too loud for conversation, and our table was the furthest away...

I was at this restaurant and I was unsure what I was getting into with driving all the way from Dayton Ohio. My wife and I was amaze at the service and food. The atmosphere was great for celebrating her birthday and she enjoyed her experience. The waiter who served us knew his food, cause my wife asked him about everything on the menu and he knew it well. Thanks for making me look and feel like the husband of the year.

This is the third time we have been to Orchids and they always deliver an outstanding experience. The décor and food are spectacular and the staff even better. This is a must if you have a special occasion. Robert and the entire team were very professional and extremely prepared. We've already made plans to take our daughter and son in law on there anniversary.

Salmon was excellent, but portion was extremely small. Need a dress code for such a special restaurant. Jeans and t-shirts should not be allowed!

Our dinner at Orchids at Palm Court was outstanding in every way! Cole orchestrated the evening with a formality that exuded warmth and friendliness unequalled. His knowledge of both the menu and the wine list left nothing to guess. The food was marvelous, the ambiance perfect, and everybody was smiling and cordial. We left knowing we'd be back soon. Our thanks to all the staff for making my wife's birthday dinner unforgettable.
