A panoramic view of the city and great food. – Not your typical "hotel restaurant."
It's an incredible seafood restaurant which happens to be perched atop the 32-story Regal Hotel. The choice of names is mildly ironic. As the name suggests the quality of the food narrowly edges the ambiance, created largely by the city view from this revolving restaurant.I was mesmerized watching Carew Tower, the river and Paul Brown Stadium slide by until chef de cuisine Stephan Siegfried arrived with his handiwork.
Two appetizers excelled: Incredibly sweet, split Alaskan King crab legs served chilled with a mildly spiced remoulade lemon sauce were followed by paper-thin, flavorful slices of smoked duck breast drizzled with an herbed raspberry vinaigrette. Two of Seafood 32's signature entrees were next. The pan-seared Dover Sole, a rare find in Cincinnati, was perfectly prepared and topped with an herbed beurre blanc sauce. The shrimp, stuffed with a mixture of lump and Canadian crabmeat, would have been a mild success on it's own. A creamy Armangac lobster sauce transformed it into a definite winner.
Quality wines by the glass. "I am not afraid to offer an excellent bottle of wine by the glass," says chef Stephan.
Inventive nightly specials help those who would like to combine surf and turf.
Wines by the glass range from $7 to $11. Entrees from $15 to $38. A dinner for two is around $80 with wine by the glass.
