Art Deco at it's finest... if you are visiting downtown and need a place to grab a drink and feel all fancy then you should try this spot out. They don't make bars like this much more these days.

Orchids really knows how to show you a good time! We celebrated my wife's birthday here, and they surprised us with a card on the table. On top of that, they decorated her desert plate with a personalized message. Every person on staff impressed us with their manner.

Each plate was complex and delicious. I read an article one time about how paying more for food can fool the brain into enjoying it more. Whether or not that's the case, her birthday at Orchids was the best meal I've ever had!

I have only had lunch here (pasta bar) and it was amazing and very affordable. I know though, from friends and family, that the dinner is the real deal. Probably the fanciest restaurant (or at least the most accredited) in Cincinnati.

By far one of the best dinners I've had in Cincinnati. It's one of the oldest restaurants in the city and an absolutely beautiful art deco building and dining room. I had an heirloom tomato caprese salad with an inflated mozzarella balloon floating in tomato broth (sounds weird but it was spectacular) and some of the best sweetbreads I've ever had. Definitely pricey but a great place to celebrate a special occasion and experience some of Cincinnati's finest food.

My parents took us to dinner here when I was a teen, and it was during that meal that I finally understood why people become "foodies". It lasted forever, everything was delicious, the place was gorgeous, and they really treat everyone super well.

I finally had dinner here for the first time, and I was absolutely blown away. It quickly became my favorite restaurant in Cincinnati. Not only was the food amazing but the experience felt special from start to finish
