I went to Symphony for dinner with my wife. I've been looking forward to it for some time. And my wait was rewarded. We got the chicken and hanger steak. Both were beyond delicious and the presentation was impressive. The atmosphere was breathtaking and very true to the history of the building. Everything about our experience was perfect, except for... More

From start to finish our meal was perfection! We are from New Orleans with some dear local friends (previously from NOLA) met us here for dinner. We were all very impressed and will keep this gem on our list of "must return." By the time the Music Hall opens, this place will be impossible to get into--don't wait--go now and... More

We have heard about the Symphony over the years but had never been there, We had matinee tickets for the Ensemble Theater, so we decided to try it for Sunday brunch. We were not disappointed. We ordered drinks, the Spicy Bloody Mary and the Bourbon Vanilla Latte. Both were excellent, especially the Latte on a wintry day. We both had... More

This restaurant is on lower floor of B&B, and is a bit different. You enter and down hall you see kitchen. There isn’t much of a “lobby” or waiting area. There is a room to right, with main restaurant room and lounge (with music to left). You want a table in the room to left. Very nicely decorated with unique... More

This is a small, lovely setting only open during symphony and opera season. It is also possible to have a drink after the show. Very nice, dark yet warm and inviting ambiance.

Despite not having a dinner reservation and arriving at 6p on Halloween weekend they were very happy to accommodate us.

Description
Symphony Hotel and Restaurant is an award winning boutique hotel with a full service restaurant and lounge that was developed by restoring a late 1800's private townhome and the buildings adjacent. It is located in Over the Rhine across from Music Hall and Washington Park. The historic dining room has a large original elegant Victorian bas-relief lady that adorns dinner guests while they un-wine-d and enjoy their gourmet two, three or five course dinner freshly made in our kitchen. Our chefs offer a "New American" Cuisine that follows the new American health conscious food trend. They create a menu using locally sourced fresh ingredients, wild caught fish, free range chicken and highly creative vegetarian dishes for a memorable dining experience. Our Pre-concert dinners are 5 course. Sunday brunch offers classic dishes, an espresso/tea bar and fresh squeezed juices. Reservations are recommended although walk-ins are welcome upon availability.
