It was during our Anniversary my hubby took me there. The view from the restaurant was excellent and the food was yummy.:-) Though its on the bit expensive side, overall experience was good.

“Great views, delicious food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

Everything we did here was a 5 star. From the ease of the online reservation, the waiter already knowing it was my wife's birthday, the no rush atmosphere, the amazing food, and obviously the view. All amazing.

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 November 2013

Primavista offers great food, especially the desserts, in a beautiful atmosphere. The restaurant itself is very romantic and it has a great view of downtown Cincinnati and the Ohio River. The service was fantastic and we were never for want of anything. The tiramisu was the best I have ever have. The one downside is that Primavista is a bit pricey for what you get. If you have a special occasion, though, it is definitely worth a visit.

“Truly unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013 via mobile

The opening of the Incline House next door has Primavista upping their game! There is a noticeable improvement on our last few visits compared to years past in all areas - service, food quality and ambiance. Of course nothing beats the view of the city from nearly every table-perfect for a romantic night out.

“Spectacular view; so-so food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

Located high in the West Hills overlooking Cincinnati, Primavista provides a view of the city lights, the river and the stadium that is unmatched. There's not much to rave about here, though, other than the view. The Sunday evening we dined here, the food was undistinguished and the service slow and inattentive. While it would make sense to dine her once just for the view, there's nothing to compel a second visit. Getting to Primavista is a bit confusing and requires driving through some intense looking parts of Cincinnati. All in all, a disappointment, given the raves I have read from other customers.
