Our first opportunity to dine at Orchids was a real experience. Comparing Orchids to the old Maisonette, Boca and Restaurant L (the three legitimate 5-star restaurants we've been to) is a real challenge. Orchids' service staff was above outstanding. Quiet and efficient, the table was cleaned and readied for the next course. The food was wondrous. The seared foie gras, Spanish mackerel, made us want more. The first plates are intentionally small and left us wanting more. Our Monkfish was superbly prepared and surrounded by great food. The chocolate dessert was a wonder. We can't say enough positive about Orchids/ We can also mention that the price was relatively low. Orchids is an unqualified winner.

However, we had the monkfish and ribeye entrees and felt that both were lacking and not impressive. Monkfish was dry and seemed overcooked, bouillabaisse was one note and didn’t hit the mark for us. Ribeye was cooked perfectly and had beautiful presentation, but the flavor was not great, I’ve had much better steaks at chain restaurants.

The setting is idea for a relaxing, romantic dinner, or intimate small gathering. Tables are elegant and widely spaced, so very conducive to conversation. No other ambient noise or music. The service is highly attentive and the pacing of the meal was spot on. It was fascinating to watch the choreography of the staff (and the service is clearly choreographed). The staff was friendly, but with a degree of professional aloofness given the more formal dining setting. The prices are expensive although not out of range for the setting. However, the food itself, while well prepared and presented, did not have the distinctive, memorable taste that would befit the prices. I had the ribeye which was well prepared and tasty, but not distinctive. My wife had the flounder which was disappointing in the portion size, taste and accompaniments. We opted to not have dessert, but the restaurant provided some petit fors which were the highlight of the meal. Overall, this is a wonderful place to make an impression and to enjoy a leisurely meal, but is very expensive for the quality and quantity of food. We would recommend, but with caveats.

My wife and I each ordered four courses, which over the period of 2 hours was just the right amount of food. Service was excellent, and although the menu might be considered haute cuisine, our waiter made us feel very comfortable and at ease.

Service was lackluster, and the food was inconsistently good. I knew we were in trouble when the bread arrived and was stale. Overall, this experience did not match the price level.

The bouillabaisse was insultingly modest (filled with potatoes and little seafood [no monkfish as advertised]. For $48, you HAVE to do better! Service was very spotty. Busing of the table barely occurred. For a five star restaurant? Seemed like there was no one managing or guiding a VERY young staff. Simply not impressive. Go to Restaurant L or Jeff Ruby to see how fine dining is done. Music was fantastic. Ambience? Fantastic. Good waiter that had little support.

This year was a different story. To start off, it should be noted that this is a relatively expensive restaurant and therefore comes with certain expectations beyond food, service and ambiance being two of them. We were seated by a very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional greeter, Morgan. Our server, Oscar, was also very professional. However, it took 40 minutes from the time we were seated to meet Oscar. He was extremely busy and for a Saturday night Orchids was poorly staffed--labor cuts? In any event, we were looking forward to the actual meal. My wife ordered the blue cheese beignet salad, popcorn grits, and scallops. I ordered the beef cheek perogies, maitake/cappelletti, and lamb. My wife's salad was very overdressed and almost seemed as if there was too much salad dressing on it, then the chefs decided to pour olive oil on it--what a disappointment. The popcorn grits, on the other hand, were flavorful and delicious and I would definitely recommend this unique and tasty dish! And my wife's third course of scallops were cooked perfectly. My order was a different story. First, my perogies had absolutely no flavor whatsoever-no salt, pepper, herb, or sauce-and therefore was unsurprisingly very bland. The maitake and cappelletti were terrific and cooked perfectly, and the sauce was a perfect pairing (you should order this). But sadly, my entrée was lackluster. The lamb was almost rare and had, once again, no flavor. The entrée did come with two bites of lamb sausage and creamy polenta, but the what should have been the star of the plate, the protein, disappointed in flavor and the way it was cooked. Along with service being painfully slow, the staff always seemed rushed and in a hurry to leave the table. The staff was so hurried that for our second course they gave my wife and me the wrong second course. Loud patrons.

The consistency of excellence with food, service, and ambiance is truly amazing and makes Orchids a must-do for any special occasion, celebration, love of life, or a memorable date with your loved one(s).

We were greeted promptly and noticed a lively happy hour going on at the bar. We were seated promptly at a nice intimate quiet table for 2. Service was flawless except a slight delay getting cream and sweetener for our coffee and tea. An apology was issued and offer to pay for our hot drinks which was very nice. Our food was delicious and well paced with chef surprises to taste along the way. The drinks were tasty and popcorn grits delicious as were our scallops and short ribs. We shared a chocolate dessert and enjoyed the sweet surprises at the end. All in all a lovely experience. We’ll go back soon!

For Cincinnati it’s towards the top of the pile but if you’re coming from a larger city with more like options this place falls a little short. Service was fantastic but the food needs a bit of a refresh and the pricing isn’t appropriate for what you got (a bit high for the area and quality). Overall would say give it a shot but coming from Chicago with such a rich food scene this place fell flat

The service was wonderful from the valet parking to the wait staff. We felt well treated. Our waiter Chris was perfect, informative, attentive but not intrusive. The ambiance is legendary in its beauty. The jazz music provided was very enjoyable. The food was delicious (we had the scallops as our entree) and beautifully presented. The whole experience was classic fine dining.

Service was outstanding but the food was mediocre for some and uninspired for others. Not one, in our party of five, said their meal was great. I might try it again but with reservations.
