Loved the whole experience, which is exactly what this restaurant is! The main course was amazing, the desert was okay. The views that ambiance was so unique and a wonderful experience!
We had a wonderful experience and will come back again to celebrate another special occasion.
We love to go to Primavista. We have always been treated with respect, the service has been wonderful and of course the food divine.
Great to be back !! Thoroughly enjoyed our evening
We went for my wife's birthday. It was one of the best meals ever! The salmon special was amazing and the mahi mahi succulent. Service is first class but friendly - a great combination for a truly award winning restaurant. The view is the best in the city and the most romantic spot in town. Make sure to finish your meal with the bread pudding. Your wife will sound like Sally (see when Harry met Sally restaurant scene - "I'll have what she's having!!!") . Can't wait to go back.
The greatest view of downtown Cincinnati possible with very good food and service. Would always recommend this restaurant
Great evening. Service was especially phenomenal - Joshua was great! And the weather was perfect for viewing the city.
Excellent food. The server (Anthony) was very knowledgeable and accommodating. The view is outstanding and very romantic. Perfect for celebrating our anniversary. Tables were spaced far enough apart so that we did not feel uncomfortable. Will definitely go back.
The food is delicious , the view is fantastic. A great restaurant ! We highly recommend Primavista.
Excellent food and service. Our dinner was very well prepared and delicious. Server was very attentive and responsive. The view is one of the best in Cincinnati, certainly from the west side.
It was a great restaurant overall, would absolutely recommend.
great staff, great view, good wine selection, great bread pudding
GREAT WAIT STAFF
PARKING WAS EASY
The food was really complimentary to the exceptional view.
View of course was fabulous! Service I
Impeccable and good absolutely amazing! One of my favorite restaurants ❤️
I want to go back already. The food was good!
The best filet mignon I've ever had. The bruschetta was amazing and different, and they offer a fantastic wine selection. We went for our anniversary and sat overlooking the skyline and watched the sunset. Highly recommend.
The service and food was outstanding, so happy they opened back up
It was great to meet John, the son of owners Joan and Frank. This is a fabulous spot, a splendid view with marvelous food. We had veal piccata and mahi with lobster butter, Caesar salad, and then finished it off with lemon basil sorbet. All of the staff are observing proper safety protocols, so support this wonderful Cincinnati tradition
It was so refreshing to go out and have a nice dinner again. Prima Vista did not disappoint us
Salmon and strawberry salad were very good. Overall menu was not a good mix or variety (veal) was the main theme and in today’s world it’s either steak or fish and there just wasn’t enough options, you just kinda settle on something. Food service was really slow... even the bread that was served came out 30mins into service; right after we made our dinner selection which causes us to order an appetizer that was bread... would have never ordered two breaded items. Olive oil was amazing! Overall I would go again for the ambiance and drinks and not really the food or experience. 1 out of 10 and 10 being the highest I would give it a 7.5.
We have been coming to Prima Vista for over 20 years. Such a great place to view Cincinnati. We weren’t sure how they would be since they just reopened a few days before. The food and service were excellent! Highly recommend Prima Vista!!!
Service was impeccable! The food was fantastic. The setting and view made the evening even more special for a birthday celebration!
We had a short wait for our table and the owner stayed with us the entire time. We had such an enjoyable conversation with him. They were very safety conscious. Overall excellent experience!
We dined here for the first time for our 34th Anniversary. I guess I was expecting something special, and it just wasn’t. The view of the city was the only exceptional thing. I had the ravioli, and it was salty and very heavy on the rosemary, which I do not like. The restaurant is pricey, so expect that. Someone was always refilling our drinks, and that was appreciated. However, I could see the waiters giving the bulk of their attention to the tables with big tickets. Once was enough.
I had planned for my wife and I to come here for our anniversary in August but they were closed. I was happy to learn they had reopened Wednesday 9/2/20. So I began planning our first date night in quite a while! Very beautiful building with drinks and food that were both phenomenal! Staff was superb with impeccable attention to detail! Will definitely be going back!!
Food, as usual, was delicious! Service was outstanding
Such a romantic location. Very are amazing. Prices are excellent and service is top notch.
FANTASTIC! Best restaurant in Cincinnati!! The veal saltinboca (sp?) is amazing.
Great place to dine...my favorite...great people. We love the servers and are thrilled that the pandemic did not close the dining establishment. God bless!
Dinner, service and the view was beautiful and delicious as always ! We had Calamari! Best in Ohio! I had veal saltimbocca, bottle of Chardonnay; John had pasta with mushrooms ,garlic,& tomatoes !
We cannot wait to return, a real favorite!
Great food, beautiful view, excellent service! So glad it reopened!
We had a lovely evening. The food was amazing, the staff were wonderfully attentive and courteous. All of the care and concern shown for our health and wellbeing during COVID made us feel quite comfortable. Distancing was excellent, our waiter Anthony took excellent care of us and explained some of the changes from previous dining experiences. We could relax and enjoy the wonderful food and view. So glad to see the Primavista open again!
Beautiful views, delicious food, and wonderful atmosphere.
We’re so happy they’ve reopened. We had a nice family dinner with great food and service. Hands down a family favorite! We felt very safe inside and everything was impeccable.
So glad to be back at Primavista! Tables were spaced well. All employees wore masks. Menu is temporarily reduced, but hits all tastes! Nice job!
I booked a reservation for m 33rd Anniversary through Open table. They confirmed my reservation via e m ail and text. Even text me the night before toco firm reservation! So on Saturday my husband and I arrived at Primavista for our Anniversary dinner and they were closed!!!!!!!! Nothing on Open Table to confirm they were closed!!! I made the reservation with Open Table. They text me the day before to confirm. We go there tonight for our reservation and find out they are closed!!!!!!!!!! So disappointed!!!!
Wonderful food, view and exceptional service!
Wonderful meal and terrific service. I highly recommend dining at Prima Vista.
Great last meal until the quarantine began.
Everything was excellent! Service & food was fantastic. Only negative was the gentlemen who kept getting phone cals & putting his conversation on speaker phone.
