D. Burnham's Ratings and Reviews
Day after my son's wedding. Decompressing. Had dinner with me, my wife, younger son, and bride and groom - perfect. The place was quiet, the menu interesting, good service, nice drinks.
The only thing I would say is that on Open Table it shows affordability as two $$ - but prices were more like 3 or 4 $$$.
Me & my boyfriend had dined in last night the food was amazing our server Devon had did an amazing job she made us feel like we we're at home. The hostess Keiara was really nice she greeted us with a smile and thanked us for coming. The overall experience was wonderful. I plan on coming back to this restaurant.
Nice friendly server, but need to train them well.
Our server didn't know what to do when I found a chip of cork floating in my wine glass. The server was trying to put a folk in my wine glass to get out the chip of the cork.
If they serve wine, please teach their server the etiquette of wine serving.
We went to D. Burnham's for Restaurant Week as we like this venue to try places we've not yet sampled. The space is styled as elegant contemporary and the food was awesome especially the lamb. Chef Justin is very talented and nailed the Creme Brûlée. The service was excellent. We enjoyed all of our course selections and commented to the chef that we enjoyed the cuisine more so than some highly rated/ranked Cincinnati restaurants we frequent. We will return and introduce friends to our find.
Me & My husband was a little early the hostess didn't mind at all her name was Keiara she had did a fantastic job sitting us, and pouring water. I would recommend this restaurant to a lot of people. The food was great no complaints and the server was great.
We had read the reviews and saw they were either very bad or good. So, we tempered our expectations. We arrived early and had a drink in the bar. The bartenders were not very friendly and we noticed they were ill prepared to make a lot of the drinks on the menu. They lacked supplies and sufficient cash to make change. So, we were very nervous about the meal. However, once moving to the restaurant the atmosphere and service changed. Both much better. The food was perfect. We recommend the dates as an appetizer - done perfectly. We had the short ribs and strip steak and it was delicious. So, we highly recommend it for a celebratory meal.
Wonderful experience! The entire staff is friendly. They go out of their way to ensure that you have a great evening. The food is incredible! The Chef, Restaurant Manager, and Hotel AGM all stopped by our table to check in. They were extremely friendly! I highly recommend visiting!!
Chicken was ice cold as if from a fridge/freezer on one salad - second salad for another person at table was drenched in dressing so looked more like soup- second chicken they brought out for first salad was different type of chicken as the first had been crusted. Waitress was a bit slow and didn't seem to want to be there. Will never come back
It was ok. We were there early for the theater,around 6:00. It was also Garth Brooks concert night. The place was half full. Lots of people showed up for a table. They were way understaffed. Our waitress was new and disappeared several times before and during the dinner. Food was ok nothing to write home about. An overall gray palate for the space. Very cold. When we finished dinner at 7:30 the place was deserted.
My wife and I went there on a Monday evening before a theater event at the Taft. When we got to the restaurant there was nobody to greet us for about 5 minutes. (6p reservation) Even though there were only about 4 people in the restaurant (empty), they proceeded to seat us at the worst table in the restaurant. We requested a different table and were moved. We asked for a cocktail menu multiple times before receiving it. I ordered a Sazerac. I've never had a Sazerac served to me with the glass packed with crushed ice. Upon tasting, I'm not sure there was any alcohol in it. Terrible cocktail. The service times were long as we were in the restaurant for close to 90 minutes despite there being virtually nobody in there. The braised short-ribs were mostly dry (how do you do that with short-ribs??) and the accompanying brussels sprouts were bland. My wife order a filet with lump crab. About 30 minutes after ordering, they informed here that there was no crab. Not sure why they had just realized it so late. On the good side, they did comp us her dinner. For the menu prices, I would expect a much higher level of service, detail, and quality.
For some reason, this restaurant is not busy, even on a Saturday night. Food was very good, albeit the service a little slow. Easy to talk, as versus the noise level in some other more-popular restaurants. Décor was very nice--including the restored hotel lobby and beautiful brass elevator doors--and valet service available.
The food was amazing, but our salads and entrees came to the table at the same time, which is disappointing in a nice restaurant. We never received bread, so the table was without any food for over an hour. Luckily, we were with good friends, but since we were one of only 3 seated tables, I expected much better service.
Previous reviews and menu price point would leave you to believe this was a very highly regarded restaurant. I did not feel it lived up to that expectation. We had reservations set but instead of having us wait for a couple minutes in the waiting area, were seated at a table before it was cleaned or prepared for us. Service was slow and our server seemed as if he was not trained for fine dining. Food came out cold and drinks were slow as well. I would not recommend this place to others and would likely not plan a return since there are so many other good options downtown anyway.
