The Palace Restaurant is located in a beautifully restored historic hotel, and you can expect the scene to be sophisticated yet relaxed. The Forbes Travel Guide Recommended restaurant opens into a lounge area that features live jazz from 6 to 11 p.m. on Fridays, making it a go-to spot for a drink pre- or post-dinner. Three neat rows of tables that accommodate 87 guests, with leather-upholstered benches along the walls, are aligned in a long alcove of The Cincinnatian Hotel and are decorated in a palette of brown and tan colors. The restaurant’s clientele are a mix of locals and hotel guests who gather in a quiet but relaxed atmosphere, lightened by conversations and laughter wafting from the lounge. Those who plan ahead can reserve the eight-seat chef’s table in the kitchen, as well as a semi-private table for 10 and a private room for 12.
