Anyway we plan on getting together for dinner and I am looking for some recomendtions on a good place to go for dinner. Looking for something downtown,or maybe Westwood or Clifton not hugely expensive and really a nice quiet place to sit down have dinner and catch up. Any help is appreciated

Good luck restorationconsultant. I've had similar problems myself, so I'll be interested to read any answers that people have for you.

For downtown, I've liked Palomino and to a lesser extent Jean-Ro, however neither are cheap.

My best suggestion for something downtown-near is Teak, a Thai restaurant in Mt Adams.

Funny how kenwood seems to be the opposite of where they are looking, or maybe you didn't catch that?

For Clifton there is Tinks
Downtown Jean-Ro is great, as is Sung (Korean), Lavomatic. Arnolds downtown is a nice cozy place, cheaper but the food won't blow you away.

Kenwood is pretty far out of the way of where they are looking.

If you get to Palomino between 5:30 & 7:30 all appetizers and pizzas (great stuff) are half price and glasses of wine are around $4... sit in the bar area overlooking Fountain Square. Rock Bottom is a chain but is right on the square also.

Oh... Arnold's on 9th is one of the oldest bar/gril places in Cincinnati (1861) and they have an enclosed outdoor courtyard with dining and music if the weather is warm enough. We love that place.

Arnold's Bar & Grill...Cincinnati, Ohio

Palamino during happy hour is crowded, loud, not very cozy. The apps are great & priced great, but not really a place to "catch up".

Olives, in Clifton is reasonably priced, and it is relatively quiet downstairs:

I can definitely recommend Sung Korean Bistro, downtown:
http://www.sungkoreanbistro.com/

As for downtown, Arnold's is a cool experience, as well.

As for Westwood, Vitor's Bistro is new. I haven't been there, but have heard good things:
http://www.vitorsbistro.net/

And, Maury's Tiny Cove:

Close to downtown, I love going over to MainStrasse in Covington. There are a number of good restaurants & bars concentrated in a couple block area:

Hope this helps!

Well, if they were looking for an historic restaurant to buy as opposed to historic properties, I would have suggested Arnold's, but since what they wanted was a quiet place to collect thoughts after a day of inspection, I suggested Trio's. Its 10 minutes away, has plenty of parking, but most importantly, I like Trio's. I'd sure rather eat there than Palamino's downtown or Maury's Tiny Cove.

So Trio's it is.

Trio is the name of the restaurant {not Trio's}.

If asking for Westwood recommendations, Trio is much more than 10 minutes away. As for Westwood, as compared to Kenwood, Trio has about as much parking as Maury's Tiny Cove, but Vitor's is more comparable.

All the triviality is silly. Read my suggestions, and let the OP decide from the information given.
