Although getting there was somewhat challenging we enjoyed our dinner. once we found our destination and ordered a drink. The wait staff is excellent. The menu was varied and offered fish, fowl, beef and lamb. The profiteroles were okay but the chocolate sauce was superb.
This was our first time at The Summit. What a treat. The food was wonderful. We will be back
Food was amazing. Wait staff were not culinary students. I believe she was in nursing. Could have seemed less shy. Spoke very, very quietly and timid. Wish she was more “excited” to be there.
Always so good been four times wish I could more.
Brought my sisters and brother in laws whom wasn’t sure about coming but all loved it and will come back thanks.
For the great
A wonderful gem in the Queen City, great food and terrific service.
Always looking for a new dining experience for our regular date nights. Not knowing what to expect from the students attending the culinary institute, we were very impressed with the quality of the food as well as the variety and attention to detail. Although we try not to eat at the same place twice, I would come back soon to what these kids are working on next!
All great - food, service, decor. Our guests really enjoyed the meal.
Outstanding food in somewhat institutional setting.
Always a great meal and nice experience
Everything was awesome!!! The food, the service, great experience!
Great dining spot. We were with 2 other couples. The dining room is so terrific - comfortable, attractive and quiet enough that we could easily hear each other and carry on an actual conversation. Wonderful! The staff was professional, amiable and attentive. The food was nothing short of terrific. We will be back!!!
Way over priced! The food was not fulfilling, and really NOT RESTURAUNT quality.
I will not be returning, nor giving this a recomendation to friends, and family.
The Summit's food quality, presentation and service equal or exceed most area restaurants. Carefully selected, seasonal ingredients are prepared in inventive, delicious ways and presented beautifully. Wait staff are knowledgeable and perfectly attentive. Good cocktail and wine selection. Reservations are almost always available, even on relatively short notice and it is a pleasure to be able to hold a relaxed conversation. I highly recommend the Summit.
great food and service still at a reasonable price with onsite parking
The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and the dessert was awesome!
The food was excellent and the service was friendly and attentive. I had the Greek Loon Lamb chops which were served not with lovely sour cream sauce. We also had an order of polenta fries which were quite yummy diffeeent but yummy.
The food was outstanding! The best grouper I've ever had.
Great food. Good service. Fun to chat with and support students.
As usual, I was not disappointed. It was fun to watch the Chef's prepare the food. My friend enjoyed her meal of Chicken with Tomato jam. Our server was quite good. The wine selection was great. Go and enjoy!
Excellent food presented in a tasteful way in a pleasant atmosphere. We would personally prefer more vegetarian/vegan options. However, we have always enjoyed our meals at The Summit.
The Summit is still the restaurant in Cincinnati that gets close to a European French style restaurant. The concept to do all from scratch is unique in town.
Value can not be topped
I took my family for Beef Wellington night in July. The evening was perfect in every way!
This was my first time eating at the summit but I was very pleased with my experience. Although myself and my guest are vegan and the menu was not vegan friendly, the chef catered to our every need and prepared a special meal for us and it was a lovely experience. The staff were nice and really made us feel special. Also the key lime pie was absolutely amazing. The only negatives is that it took a while for someone to greet us and sit us and it is extremely cold in the restaurant but outside of those two small things I still had a great experience and will be back.
Service was good, food okay, it was so cold in the restaurant you could not enjoy your meal.
Run by culinary students who know what they are doing. Food was great!
We got there early, and sat at the bar with Donna, the restaurant manager, serving us. We had a lovely conversation about specialty cocktails, and she was kind enough to share a recipe with me for a drink they no longer serve due in unavailibility of an ingredient.
As usual, the food was excellent.
The food was delicious, different and beautiful. All the things you want from a culinary school dining experience - I will send everyone I know who is headed to Cincinnati - you can count on that!
Service was excellent ! Loved that we could look through the window to see the meals being prepared. Pork belly dish was superb as was the multi mushroom risotto and 3 cheese Mac n cheese. Table mates raved about the lamb chop taste (though it was not very hot) and the carrot soup. The filet mignon (ordered medium) was a little dry with no seasoning. Desserts were a hit: salted chocolate torte, coffee ice cream and macaron tray.
Why wan't this place packed on a Saturday night? Wonderful food, great service all at a very reasonable price. This is truly a hidden gem.
It is definitely a campus restaurant. In order to get the restaurant, you have to walk past classrooms titled "Meat Butchery" or "Fish Butchery." It feels like a dark, forgotten hotel restaurant, but the food is absolutely amazing and done with care and precision.
Excellent food and service . No view did one exist? We were 5:30 seating and back in corner.
Such a lively night. Food and wait staff were wonderful. We will be back
Neighborhood treasure. Love it and love students and staff who work to make an exceptional experience and show off considerable skill.
Service was not that great. Our waiter was not personable at all. My final total was 115.55 with gratuity included. The food was just ok i was very disappointed. I do not recommend the summit at all. The bread we were served looked and tasted like white castle buns with poppy seeds.
The food options are always very creative, and the service is excellent. The students do a great job of making your dinner occasion feel special. The wine list is adequate and it is nice that they suggest wine pairings on the menu.
food was wonderful & so was the service - however, I did have to change my order two times because you were out of fish & out of lamb chops - ambiance could be better but everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food
great value, excellent food and service, the wines are a deal too
The amuse bouche was yummy. The pork belly app was delicious. My sea bass dish in a beurre blanc had no taste at all and for some reason once of the spices that the fish was seared in had a sharp unappetizing taste to it so I brought it home to doctor it and it just didn't taste good. The fish that was originally to be used was out and replaced with sea bass. I love sea bass, but because the fish was different the chef chose to not use the capers and raisins to give the sweet salty thing to the dish and without it it was tasteless. I was very disappointed. I almost said something but the waiter was so delightful and I knew it wasn't her fault and I decided it was not worth it. Now my friend had the chicken dish and that was yummy. So, it does deserve a second chance but it will be awhile before I give it one.
Everything about this is wonderful. We had a table looking into the kitchen. Excellent food, wine and service
Our dinner was wonderful !! Food very delicious !! Service excellent . Was a little difficult finding the restaurant . More signage would be great . Will come again
