They found a perfect table for me, dining alone that night. From greeter to waiter everyone was most pleasant and helpful - the waiter let me sample a wine I wasn’t familiar with , and liked it ! Very nice wine list by the glass too. His food selections were spot on. And delicious. Also appreciate that the tables were well spaced.
Can’t miss !

Our server recommend a fantastic wine to start us out with the incredible bread (local and in-house). As always, service was superb as well as the food. It's always hard not to order "one, more thing."

Mita's is best with a dinner party of four or more people. The tapas/small plates style and wide variety of choices works better for this size group. Great food and great service.

As always, the food was delicious. Many selections to chose from and every one of them tastes delicious. Atrtractive decor and always lots of customers enjoying themselves. It is little loud but overall great place to dine and reasonably priced. Highy recommend it.

We expect to pay high prices for exceptional food, but the food was not exceptional, other than the ceviche. The margaritas were very good but come in a low ball glass with an extra large square ice cube that takes up most of the glass.
The pork belly and Kobe beef tacos were both so fatty I took one bite and that was it.

Overall good service and delicious food. The pickled vegetables were particulary tasty. I would not recommend the beef tacos and if you have a lava cake, the center should be molten- ours was more like a gooey brownie.

Because it was Valentine’s Day, we couldn’t get a reservation until 10:45PM. We still managed to be late (10:54-ish) and the hostess told us the kitchen closes at 11PM. It was our first time so we were scrambling to check out the menu but our server was really nice, calmed us down and told us not to worry too much. She answered all of our many questions and really helped us make a decision (we can be pretty indecisive).

Food came in less than 10 minutes and was absolutely amazing! Loved the small plates/tapas. We each got 3 dishes that we each loved. Definitely recommend!

One of the best restaurants in the city of Cincinnati. Takes the experience of having Spanish/Latin American style tapas to the next level. On par with bigger city restaurants. Very good food and service. Yes a little pricey but you get what you pay for. Would love to go again!!!

Enjoyed the empanadas, tacos, ceviche and brussel sprouts. Was disappointed with the paella, especially since Mita's is one of the few places that offers it. Fortunately, the menu is filled with other delectable options.

Mita's was great. I loved the Batatas Bravas - fantastic flavor. Also, the pork bellies were mouth watering. Enjoyed a nice Spanish wine and the service was good. Would go back in a heartbeat.
