Become a Part of Our Incredible History.
Eighteen at the Radisson has a fascinating history of growth, change and transformation. Originally built in 1972, this property was always a hotel, but it was not always known as the Radisson. Since it’s original construction, the hotel has transferred ownership several times and has been a Quality Inn, Clarion, and finally the Radisson since 2012.
Our restaurant has also gone by a few different names, including the Riverview Restaurant, 360, and finally our current name, Eighteen at the Radisson. With each name change came a new remodel, but one aspect of this hotel has always remained the same: upscale dining and an elegant revolving view of the Cincinnati area.
Eighteen at the Radisson: How it all Began
The original owner and architects of the hotel were inspired to create a revolving restaurant after seeing another restaurant in Seattle, Washington; a box restaurant with an interior round dining floor. With that design in mind, the owner and designers decided to make their own hotel and restaurant round too, with the added revolving feature for a more unique, dining experience.
One of a Kind
Although we can’t say we’re the only revolving restaurant in the U.S., our upscale steakhouse is the only revolving restaurant in the Cincinnati area and pre-dates the Top of the World Restaurant at the Stratosphere Casino, Hotel & Tower in Las Vegas.
By offering one-of-a-kind experiential dining, the highest quality service, and a distinct menu chock-full of flavor, our riverview restaurant has quickly become the face of legendary fine dining in the Cincinnati area.
Today, Eighteen at the Radisson offers the same beautiful view but in a whole new way. Renovated and rebranded to suit a new climate, new customers and a new modern age, our riverview revolving restaurant now offers a dining experience that is truly unlike any other. With unrivaled three and four course meals, an exceptional wine and cocktail list, family-friendly holiday buffets and simply enchanting views of the Ohio River and Cincinnati skyline, a visit to Eighteen at the Radisson is one to be remembered.
Although our look and name has changed significantly over time, the mission of Eighteen at the Radisson has remained the same. Our experienced management, server and kitchen staff are all dedicated to providing a unique, casual fine dining experience for Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area visitors and locals alike.
