Top notch experience without pretense. Everyone from busers to server to the manager took great care with our night. There's a special menu for vegetarian / vegan choices so you can ask for that one at the host stand. Highly recommend!

Six of us went there to celebrate my daughter's 25th birthday. Our server was outstanding, and we did not feel rushed so that the restaurant could turn over the table more quickly. We all ordered different dishes, and the opinions varied from "pretty good" to "superb". We had a window table, and the view of the city was awesome. We will be back!

Ambiance, food, wine, service - fantastic! Appetizer to dessert, layers of flavor in every course, even the coffee was exceptional. Service was spot on! A stunning atmosphere and an impeccable dinner. Cannot wait to treat ourselves again. Unmatched experience!

The Primavista is one of the absolute best among all the culinary delights Cincinnati has to offer ... and that is saying a lot! The food is top-shelf, as is the service. The view of Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky is spectacular. If you haven't been to the Primavista, you are missing out!

We had another excellent experience, but I have to say we had a couple with us who had never been to the Prima and the food, the ambiance, the service was so totally superb ...we were delighted. Our friends ( who frequent upscale restaurants in their many travels) were pleasantly surprised. They thoroughly enjoyed it!The best evening in a very long time. Thank you Prima Vista! Oh yes. Cincinnat's best kept secret.

Primavista is our number one choice for a special dinner out. The food is always beautifully prepared and presented. The wine list includes some reasonably priced selections by the glass or the bottle. And the view of the city and the river, especially on a clear night, is among the best in the Queen City!

Celebrating our 35 wedding anniversary, we had reservations. Upon arriving, we had at least a 40 minute wait. After Ordering our food, our server then returned to tell us no asparagus. Then returned to tell us only two of us could get the special fish , as that was not available. After finally ordering something available, it took an extremely long time for our food to arrive. Then getting our check was very, very delayed. With being a special occasion, we were very embarrassed for our guests and disappointed.

We are never disappointed with a meal at Primavista. We request banquette seating to take full advantage of the view. Makes for good people watching as well :)
We shared a cheese and sausage plate for starters. I had a caesar salad and the special fish preparation. For dessert a trio of gelato flavors. Everything was prepared perfectly. We rounded out the meal with a reasonably priced wine, a Coté du Rhone as I remember.
The service is always spot on, attentive, but not intrusive.

I had gone to PrimaVista to celebrate the wedding day of my best friend. I was treating her to one last night out as a single lady! Everything was absolutely perfect. The food, the service, and the experience. I recommend this to anyone looking for a special night out!

Allie was our server. If I were to go back, I would most certainly ask for her again. I really don't think there's a bad seat in the house. The menu offers a wide range of entrees, salads and appetizers. This rapidly became one of my favorite places to dine in Cincinnati!! My husband and I WILL be back!
My girlfriend and I come here every year ...
My girlfriend and I come here every year for our anniversary, this was our fourth, and every time we're impressed. From the tremendous views to the incredible food and amazing wait staff that brings it, Primavista never disappoints. In fact I'm certain you couldn't be disappointed there if you tried. We love it.
