Good from beginning to end. Nice bourbon/lemon cocktail followed by shrimp appetizer. Great filet mignon with Caesar salad and bread pudding for dessert. Good service and view of the city. We want to go back at least for every season!
Wonderful overall experience as always. Excellent service, food and ambiance.
Beautiful setting overlooking the city, Great everything! Beautiful way to celebrate with my best friend and wife!
Amazing as always. Food preparation was amazing. Service was great as always.
Great view of the city. Food was very good, but not outstanding. We had great server. We waited for a table by the window, but, unfortunately, it was next to the door to the kitchen. It was very distracting at times.
The view is incredible! The food is quite good. The staff is very friendly and most do their jobs well. But the restaurant is in dire need of interior decoration. The carpet, draperies, tables, etc. are so old that they don't feel clean. Not saying they aren't, but that's the feeling the interior left us with.
Wonderful service, fantastic view
My wife and I really enjoyed going to the restaurant. We especially like the view of Cincinnati. The food was really good. The waiter that we had was really nice and did a great job. It was a little noisy with people’s cell phones going off around us and one table having a cell phone where they actually had a conversation while they were at dinner. However if you were OK with sitting so close to others it is worth going for the view and the food.
Amazing experience! Very tasty food, great service and the view is gorgeous!
Very nice room, great food, good service
Annie did an outstanding job her recommendation where spot on
Great place to celebrate special occasions with you special person.
We had our granddaughters (5th grade and 3rd grade this fall) with us for their first experience in a "nice" restaurant. Celia recognized us and was quite attentive to the girls and their "special" needs. Fortunately the girls did not disgrace us, enjoyed the food and drink, and paid special attention to the view they were experiencing for the first time. They dropped no china on the floor.
The restaurant to visit to celebrate your special event!
Salmon special and chicken piccata both excellent, as was the bread pudding. And we had a window table. What a view!!
Amazing view , amazing food and ama ing staff. This is our go to for a special dinner
Fantastic experience all around. Excellent and attentive (but not intrusive) service at a time when most restaurants are short staffed. Dinner was excellent and so was the view even from the upper booth. It was a bit of a haul to get there but totally worth it. Would definitely return for another special occasion dinner.
Anthony and the staff were amazing. Food was outstanding.
Love the food, the view, ambiance, and the service.
When making our reservation I requested that we NOT be seated at one of the tables close to the door of the kitchen. (We experienced this once previously and found it difficult to enjoy our dinner; too many distractions of bodies waiting by our table to get in and out of the kitchen).We arrived on time and were marched through the entire restaurant in an attempt to seat us at a table right next to the doors of the kitchen. We refused. In discussing our unhappiness with the person attempting to seat us it became apparent that she was FULLY AWARE of our request. We were taken to another table, which was being cleared, and left to stand in the middle of the restaurant causing a distraction to other dinners. VERRY UNHAPPY start to what was to be a special evening. In my opinion this should have been discussed at the hostess stand and we should not have been taken to the table by the kitchen doors. The remaining part of evening, food and service, were fine and we still provided a 20%+ gratuity despite the rocky start.
The service from Allison was great. Food was excellent. It was noisy as there was a few groups surrounding us. Otherwise the experience would have been outstanding all the way. Maybe the restaurant should consider using different sections based on the number of people in the party. We were there to celebrate our 39th anniversary so a more quiet atmosphere would have been preferable. I am sure the tables of 2 around us would feel the same.
It was perfect I had the fish special salmon , my wife had salad with grilled chicken, perfect
2 birthdays, one anniversary
Great service and food. Incredible view.
The food and service were good to great. The view amazing. To bad the evening was ruined by the nice level. I've eaten here twice and both times were sat by the largest table with extremely nice guests. If you make a reservation definitely see if you can be seated as far fro the largest table in the place. It's near the bar.
Always consistent with good food and great service. A great place for dinner before a show at the Warsaw Federal Incline Theatre across the street!
Amazing experience. Our server Alex was A+++. A KEEPER!!!
We were there for our wedding anniversary. It was our first time there! The staff and the atmosphere was amazing. We will be back for sure!
Best food and view combination in the city. A classic that could use some updating, which is made up for with great service.
I have been having dinner here for years with customers and family. It is always Great, view is nice and I always request Debra as my waitress/server because does a Great job! She knows what I want and how I like it, she doesnt even ask me what I want because she knows, the only question is what bottle of wine? which salad, and either Calamari or the mussels tonight? Like I said, doesnt matter because its all very good and the service is always top notch!
Wonderful food, as always, and our waitress, Annie, was very knowledgeable and a great server!!
Annie was our server, and , as usual, she was attentive and excellent. We love to come to the restaurant on Wednesday at 5:00 P.M. Might bring our two civilized granddaughters with us the next time.
Great food, service was awesome and as you would expect, the view is fantastic.
Great birthday dinner with my parents and husband. Best city views & an old classic Italian feel!
The service was excellent. Our main server was Anthony. Food was excellent as usual. I have always loved this place. The view is wonderful.
What a wonderful evening! Our evening was perfect! Service was spot on. Very short wait considering we arrived a bit early for our 9pm reservation. The menu is abbreviated compared to days of old, but offers most of their most popular dishes. Always start with the Caesar Salad. And tonight it was the Cioppino and Veal Saltimbocco. Add a side of veal meatballs because 😋. And the the view is always amazing!!!!!
Everything was amazing- food, cocktails, service, and the view. Allison was great!
We went to the restaurant for our anniversary. The view was amazing and the food was delicious. The service was also outstanding. We will definitely visit again.
We chose Primavista to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. We shared the broiled salmon (one of the daily specials), which was excellent. The view of downtown Cincinnati is always spectacular. And ourserver, Alex, was personable and very attentive. We appreciated the extra touch of spamoni ice cream I. honor of our anniversary. A great experience that we look forward to repeating soon.
