    Our server was awesome, the experience was perfect so thank you to the team at Sotto for making a meal out in Cincinnati feel very old world, memorable, and special. The pasta was awesome, full stop. The specialty drinks were okay, but other bars have better cocktails at a lower price. The service was incredibly attentive and the ambience was very pleasant. I personally didn’t love the ricotta donuts so maybe pick something else if you’re not a fan of food having oil as a part of the flavor profile, but otherwise, all of the food was perfect and highly memorable (bread with goat cheese, Caesar salad, and a couple different pastas). I’m not a food critic or a professional chef, I definitely couldn’t have prepared any of what we ate - so please take my perspective as a layman’s point. I’d go back in a heartbeat because it was very special, and again, a huge thank you to the people who made it so.

    Everything was great we love Jeff Ruby’s. The only feedback is that we had three peace of cake to go. Cheese cake, Chocolate cake and Carrot cake. The Cheese cake and chocolate cake weren’t that tasty and and Carrot cake we gave to my father in law. I remember the Cheese cake was always really good but maybe they changed it. Anyway, other than that everything was awesome.

    The food is outstanding. I especially like the Brussel sprouts. My party sat outside, and it was a little chilly, but tolerable. The service was a little slower than I expected, but not bad. I will be back.

Discover Central Business District

Cincinnati's Central Business District is a bustling neighborhood known for its stadiums and casinos, and the area is also home to several iconic establishments. Located between Central Parkway and the Ohio River, the Central Business District has dozens of restaurants. Diners who would like to enjoy a taste of the city's immigrant history can eat at one of the Greek diners. Some of these venues have existed for over 75 years, run by owners who remain committed to using the recipes of their ancestors. Ohio was also a destination of Polish immigrants after World War II, so several bakeries in the area serve the traditional bread, cakes, and pastries of Eastern Europe. For modern recipes, adventurous palates can venture to the New American bistros and upscale seafood restaurants near the Ohio River.
