While staying at the hotel we ate breakfast at the Cricket Lounge. The menu selection was somewhat limited, but the service was excellent, and the food was good. It met our needs and provided a nice, relaxing breakfast.

We visited The Palace restaurant (inside The Cincinnatian Hotel) for dinner, stopping first for a drink at The Cricket Lounge, the hotel bar. We got seats at the bar and waited to have our drink orders taken. The bartender was rather abrupt with us, and...More

I stay at the Cincinnatian whenever I am in Cincinnati and one of my favorite things about it is the Cricket Lounge. I was disappointed in the menu for awhile, it used to be great a couple of years ago and then they changed it...More
