The restaurant offers private dining, but the hotel also offers dining in our three ballrooms including the famed "Hall of Mirrors" and 27 additional break-out rooms. The hotel features one of the finest examples of 1930s French art deco.View Private Dining Details
One of our favorite restaurants anywhere. Superb food in an amazing, unique space. The usually excellent service was just a little subpar this time (timing a bit off and it was a little hard to get their attention once or twice) but still courteous and helpful. Excellent wine recommendations.
While perhaps not overpriced for such a place, still, for this part of the world it's VERY expensive. I don't think there's a main course less than $40.
The minor issues will not prevent us from returning, however.
Amazing. Wonderful experience.
Great food as always
Great place for a meeting
I love it here. I would be here all the time if I could afford it. The service is always perfect, the food is exquisite to look at and is an experience to eat. It is expensive, but it's worth it.
Our go to for special occasions for the last 25 years. Great room, great food, great service.
Excellent service, great meal, cordial staff. We were provided our choice of seating and the meal was pleasant
Food was good, well presented both in both in terms of being explained by knowledgeable waitstaff and well plated.
Two minor complaints, before the meat course the waiter asked if we wanted more bread, we said "yes" and that more would be right out. It never came.
I also ended up with a fly landing in my cocktail I complained to the waiter and was brought a fresh drink, but then changed for the replacement drink.
To celebrate my birthday and mother's day my mom and I both did the tasting menu, which was relatively expensive but in line with what you would expect at a top rated fine dining restaraunt. The staff were polite and friendly, if not the picture of silent professionals you get at top places in New York, and the food tasted INCREDIBLE. Unfortunately, the portion sizes were absolutely tiny - we both were still hungry after every serving, and the entire meal. Additionally, the pacing seemed thrown off a number of times, with some dishes coming IMMEDIATELY after the next, and others (particularly the desserts) taking quite a while in between. Again, the food was as good as anything I have ever had (particularly the perfectly cooked scallop), but the serving sizes were dreadful. I doubt I return, but if I do I certainly won't be going with the tasting menu again.
We were celebrating my husband's birthday. Food and service were outstanding - we were not disappointed. We hope to dine here again and soon.
Excellent experience, once again. My husband and I like to come here at least once a year for a special occasion meal. It never fails to disappoint, both the staff and the food are wonderful and a lovely treat!
We have dined at Orchids and have positive memories. This visit was a special thank you to good friends. The Art Deco restaurant and hotel are beautiful and take one back to the time of grand style and fine dining. The impeccable service and attention to detail is appreciated. However, we were disappointed in the food. We had 3 courses and went home hungry. The food was beautifully presented, delicious, but of reduced quantity. The halibut entree was tiny with only a small amount of chopped asparagus as an accompaniment. I am a small person with a modest appetite and I noticed. The entree was appetizer size. Dessert was delicious if a bit over promoted by the server. Then, the music started and any conversation with our friends was impossible. I am sure we will return at some point but I will have a sandwich ahead of time.
The food, the service and the ambience were truly outstanding.
The service was poor.
First, after we ordered we were told the bread was in the oven and would be right out
. Fifteen minutes later it was.
I ordered a second cocktail. Another 15 minute wait.
The appetizer was slow coming but nothing like the wait for the entrée.
While the food was exceptional, the service makes it very doubtful that we would return.
Graduation celebration. Food was great as was the service.
Absolutely beautiful restaurant and bar.
Superb service, waiter knew about everything on the menu in detail. Also knew about every wine we asked him about. Everything we ordered was picture perfect.
Great food and service.
However, it was kind of noisy due to the band and people talking around the bar.
For anyone who may concern, they do not take travel check.
Pricy - yes, but well worth it. Everything (food, drinks, service and staff politeness, the historic room) is absolutely outstanding! And watching how the staff treat the patrons is a true experience - every member will address you by name and no matter the member in your party you’ll all be served at exactly the same time and all the cloches will be raised in unison, presenting all plates simultaneously.
Great place to dine.
We love the ambiance of Orchids and always go for special anniversaries/ birthdays.... but this last visit wasn't as fabulous as previous ones. The food seemed to take extremely long to get to our table ( an hour after ordering) and the portion sizes were smaller. We all love vegetables and there were seriously three tiny asparagus tips as the vegetable. The staff is attentive and elegant, but this time it just wasn't the top of their game.
Well executed professional formal dinner service
Great experience. Cole, Robert, Morgan and Chauncey gave us great service. Lamb was incredible.
Incredible setting. Incredible service. Wonderful food.
Great Anniversary dinner!
This is a great restaurant for a very special occasion. The halibut is outstanding. The server is right there all the time to make sure your needs are met. Great touches like an appetizer from the chef to orchids box you receive at the end of the meal filled with a tasty goody to take home with you. The restaurant is beautifully decorated with Art Deco.
Everything here was amazing. Simply one of the best meals I've ever had. From interacting with the outstanding staff from the 10 course meal (plus 2 extra desserts) everything here was perfect!
Amazing food/wine pairings! Excellent service from waiter and sommelier. Awesome setting!
It was our second time. Just as good as the first. In my opinion it's the best restaurant in Cincinnati.
We visited Orchids to sample the food from the new Chef. We were really happy we decided to come. The food was outstanding. Beautiful presentation and quite tasty. The service was impeccable and our server Chris was very attentive. For anyone who has not sampled the food from the new chef I would say make a reservation now. For anyone who has not been to ORCHIDS I would say treat yourself to fine dining at its best.
Unbelievable meal and experience. Consistently one of the best food presentations in the city
This was the best fine dinning experience we have had. The food is imaginative, very well executed, and the timing was perfect.
This was our fourth trip to Orchids at Palm Court - again, it was amazing.
We enjoyed the five course menu with pairings. Every course was an experience and far too complex and unique to begin to describe here. Needless to say, our dinner was superb, the service, extraoirdinary and the ambience, second to none.
We were one of only 8-10 tables during our 2.5 hour dinner which led the dining area to be a bit more quiet than typical (which was fabulous). Couple this with the live jazz from the bar and our corner booth overlooking the dining room and adjacent bar and we didn't want the evening to end.
Orchids has not missed a beat with the head chef transition. We can't wait to return again soon!
Wonderful as always. Our server was attentive but not obtrusive. Courses were perfectly paced, food was excellent, and the wine pairings were also outstanding. We really enjoyed the meal.
Service was awesome. Went for our anniversary and was treated with many special touches. Had the 5 course meal. Great food.
Staff did a great job understanding that we were not very adventurous in our menu selections and were still accommodating.
Amazing experience. Food was delicious.
My wife and I had a great night out and had a great experience overall.
Wonderful atmosphere and unique food presentations. Not rushed. Bar music a nice background sound
Chefs tasting was phenomenal!
