The staff and food were incredible it was really noisy which was a personal down side for me but the extra mile the staff did to make my wifes birthday special was top shelf. Only other complaint would be the naked pictures in the mens and womens bathroom totally removes the classyness.

I brought my mom to Prime Cincinnati for a delayed Mother's Day dinner before the Garth Brooks concert. We each had a ceasar salad, which was absolutely perfectly dressed. The sourdough bread that came to the table with roasted garlic olive oil was superb. Mom ordered the chicken with gnocchi and absolutely loved it. I had the 6oz filet, with truffle mashed potatoes and asparagus. The only concern was the asparagus arrived late to the table. I ordered the filet medium and it was perfect! Super tender and flavorful. The truffle mashed potatoes were very rich and delicious, I was hoping for fresh truffle on top.

Great dinner with another couple at Red Feather on Friday, May 13. Started with whipped ricotta & grilled baguette. Had Hyde Park(er) cocktails, which were good--very refreshing and tasty. Also had cosmopolitans, which were good. Beet salads were amazing, as were the gnocchi and the shrimp & grits. Two at the table had burgers, and they were cooked perfectly & came with an unbelievable amount of fries! Loved this place and our experience.
