My husband and I enjoyed dinner before attending the superb performance of Leonard Bernstein's MASS at the Cincinnati Music Hall (right across the street). The food was delicious, the service excellent, the dining room beautiful, and the noise level low. We will definitely return to this lovely little hotel and its fine restaurant.
It would have been nice had the staff and or waitress once said Happy Mother’s Day. Nothing special for Mother Day, a little disappointing .
Another great visit... Great food, atmosphere, and service!
Excellent. Good service, good food. Quiet, sophisticated ambiance. A treat and a nice Saturday evening venue. Highly recommended!!!
The Symphony Hotel and Restaurant is a unique place in a historic building. It is very music-oriented, being right across the street from Music Hall in Cincinnati. The wine list is excellent and after our meal we were also able to order a unique digestif, which is a more specialized thing that is difficult to find, being more of a European taste. In future, we will go to this restaurant whenever we are in Cincinnati for a Music Hall event.
Excellent experience to celebrate our Dad’s 75th Birthday!
Great location, fantastic service, great food prepared as requested. We came before a Pops concert arriving about 6:00. We did the 5 course menu and had plenty of time to get to the concert in time.
Felt rushed through the meal. Chair kept getting bumped my wait staff.
Wonderful ambiance. Service attentive. Wonderful course selection. Great that you can get a 2 or 3 or 4 or 5 course meal. Cocktails were great and wine list excellent. Will definitely go back again.
Absolutely great staff and the most amazing food.
Amazing! Best brunch, ever!
Set in the over the rhine, in old buildings. Tastefully decorated with and interesting menu.
Food was fabulous as usual and the service top notch!
We loved the enthusiastic greeting when we arrived and the server's kind recollection that I enjoy a French press. Napkin colors spoke of spring...which were quite welcome on a chilly Sunday. We also loved the Bloody Mary special and everything on our plate. And in our bowls! We never expected to be offered celery root soup. So delicious!
Buz was a wonderful and entertaining server and bar manager. The ambiance is lovely and the food was delicious.
A real gem, located in the charming old-world Symphony Hotel. I enjoyed the five-course pre-concert dinner. Loved every bite. Excellent and attentive service. Will definitely return.
In a historic townhouse converted into a boutique hotel. Convenient to Symphony Hall and the other OTR theaters, with special pre-theater dinners and a Sunday brunch. Food and service are excellent. Didn't visit the bar, but it looked quite cozy.
We had a wonderful meal and service was A+! We had the Thursday night special and loved the free valet parking.
A nice choice of restaurant in OTR. I have been there several times. It is a little pricey, but always quite good.
Great service, amazing brunch and authentic atmosphere. Highly recommend!
Celebrated my wife’s birthday here on Saturday night. The food was so good and the Jazz was perfect. The baked Alaska was to die for too!
Absolutely charming setting in a renovated house that was built the year before Symphony Hall. Service was excellent and the food excellent. The recently added jazz bar had a trio playing even on the Thursday night of what turned out to be an unexpectedly pleasant business dinner. Overall would recommend this place highly. No other dining experience in Cincinnati is like this.
Beautiful old hotel & restaurant - Each room was well decorated - molding in each room was outstanding . Service was outstanding. Food was great. Have recommended to many of my friends. Will definitely join you for some jazz in the bar.
We loved our experience and will definitely be back.
Lovely atmosphere. Great service and food. The brunch menu is a variety of dishes including vegetarian and the sides are both delicious and healthy. My side salad was large and full of great tasting fresh vegetables, greens, and herbs.
My sister and I enjoyed brunch. Very good food and very good service.
My go-to spot for a really good dinner before heading across the street to the symphony or down the street to the theater. Always, always have had a great meal. Staff is fantastic. Atmosphere is elegant and makes you feel like a grown-up out for a posh evening.
Excellent food. Great service. Comfortable setting. Great location for a pre-concert dinner.
We had a lovely evening dinner prior to a concert at Memorial Hall. Very convenient to valet park at the Symphony Hotel and just walk over to our concert afterwards. Buzz the bartender was also handling tables that night. very busy crowd and he did it with Flair! He knows the menu inside and out. my date had the branzino fish and it was excellent, with a very generous portion. I went with the crab cakes, nothing special but glad I tried them as they were advertised as all-white crabmeat. the salad was rather modest portion served on a small 6 inch plate. The experience was why we were there, the jazz music, the decor and ambience. We definitely will return for cocktails and try the menu again.
The atmosphere in this quaint boutique restaurant is lovely. And while the servers/staff were nice and friendly they only made it to two courses for pre-theatre dining (5:45 - 7:20). Seems like they should be a bit more efficient than that. The food was fine but not anything special
Everything was excellent with two exceptions. 1) the special rib eye was odd. It was very thin, maybe 3/8ths of an inch thick. I ordered mine medium rare which is impossible with that thin of a steak. 2) we asked for a ten minute rest period before dessert service. This was a mistake when the ten minutes turned into 25.
Other than those two complaints we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Dinner before a concert at Music Hall was perfect. The staff makes sure that your dinner is on time. Very convenient, have valet parking and the food is wonderful!
Elegant 5 course meals in classic setting next to music hall
This was my first experience at the Symphony. I truly enjoyed the food. The wait staff, food and the atmosphere was fantastic. We sat and enjoyed some Jazz after dinner and relaxed. I will defiantly be back.
The reservation system is difficult and trying to communicate with the facility was nearly impossible. To add a person to the reservation would cause me to lose the time. I requested a specific table but that did not occur. The location, ambiance and Ricky and Bekah did outweigh those hassles.
It was fantastic!
Outstanding food and service. This first visit won't be my last.
daughter & son in law were in town....my french toastwas not done enough....hope i remember next time to ask for it well done
Excellent service and delicious food for a decent price. Outstanding ambience
Great food and service. I’ve had better Creme brûlée but I did not go there for the desserts.
