Primavista Ratings and Reviews
I have been going to Primavista for special occasions for a long time.
I was pleasantly surprised to find that they now have a separate vegan/vegetarian menu. Awesome!!
The food, as usual, was excellent and the wait staff very attentive. Actually I found them to be a little too attentive this time... constantly coming over to see if we were done and needed our food to be boxed. It was a little annoying, but didn't take away a whole lot from the experience.
Of course, the view is excellent. All in all, five stars.... as usual.
Had a fabulous time and great service at Primavista. It had been 20 plus years ago that I had been here and I can't understand why I've not been back. The view of fireworks going off in downtown Cincinnati as well as the City lights made for a most memorable evening! Loved it!!
So I decided to take the love of my life out for a fun evening and decided prima Vista would be the place to get some dinner. Neither of us had been and I have heard nothing but good things from friends and people who have been there so we tried it and I am so happy we did. We are a young couple 26 and 21 but both look much younger and I was concerned that maybe the server would treat us with little attention because she would think "they won't tip well" WELL I WAS SO WRONG! I wish so badly I could remember my servers name she was the absolute best and the Busser was amazing kind as well! Everyone made us feel comfortable, desired and knew exactly what the perfect amount of time was between each check up. We didn't feel ignored nor overly bothered. We both had a amazing time and can't wait to return. It's definitely going to be a long time choice if every experience turns out so amazing. Oh and the Food is fantastic as well. We had Ceaser salads to start, Split ravioli entree and a side of gnocchi and Polenta. Perfect evening.
I reserved this reservation through OpenTable for our Son and Daughter In Law that were in town for Thanksgiving. They have not been out to dinner since giving birth to our first Grand Daughter and I thought they could use a enjoyable night out. This was selfish on our part (Grandparents) which gave us time with our 11 week old Grand Daughter ( Brooklyn ). I left a message on OpenTable that this was a special occasion for our Son and Daughter In Law and they did not disappoint. Anthony their server congratulated them on their first child, and asked if there were any time restraints to get back for baby sitter, etc., they said No and he tailored the dinner to give them the full experience. The food was outstanding and the view from table 35 was an amazing view of the city. Thank you for making this a special occasion for both of them.
Great Place for Dinner!
We had a wonderful time at Prima Vista. Annie, our server was wonderful and the food and the view were spectacular. We started off with the veal meatballs and arugula salad and they were both fantastic. I had the filet and my wife had the seafood special (Mahi) and they were both excellent. My filet was a bit more done than I had ordered but everything tasted amazing. My wife loved her fish and asparagus - some of the best she has ever eaten. Annie was delightful, attentive and we loved our experience. The view of the city added a romantic charm to the experience. Highly recommend for date night.
I was looking for a restaurant in the Cincy/Covington area that had an open reservation for the early dinner hour. The Opentable app allowed me to seamlessly place my request, with the assurance that my reservation was indeed confirmed. The dining experience turned out to be everything my friend I could have wished for, and more! The food was superb, the ambience elegant yet cozy, and the venue was even conveniently located near our theatre of choice for the evening. Thank you.
This was our first time at Primavista and we will definitely be returning! We were out celebrating our anniversary and everything was wonderful! Our table was right by the window so we could see the Cincinnati skyline which was nice for pictures. Our waiter (Anthony) was also wonderful and took time to walk us through the menu despite it being very busy. Service far exceeded expectations.
