Great casual anniversary dinner with my husband. Our entree salads were generous, the shrimp which topped mine and the chicken that topped his were perfectly grilled, and several nice creative salad options. We both have dietary restrictions and the restaurant staff was very accommodating. Nice selection of wine and beer and live music too!

We were visiting friends that live in Mariemont and they brought us here for lunch. The cafe is quaint like its surroundings. I had a bowl of chili and a Chef's salad. My wife had a Ruben and our friends had their favorites: Black Bean Burger and the Mariemont Gobbler. I was pleased with my selections as were the others.... More

As always, had an outstanding experience at the Dilly! It was a gorgeous day, and the pet-friendly, outside dining on their beautiful patio is perfect to enjoy a long, leisurely lunch with our dog, Yogi. The server was exceptional. He was attentive and engaged with us and our dog in a perfect balance of making sure we were accommodated in... More

Dilly Cafe is now Dilly Bistro, Bar and Bottle shop. They have really spruced up the look which was badly needed. It is much nicer in appearance, food is still very good and they have increased the size of their wine shop. I had the shrimp and asparagus salad with meyer lemon vinaigrette. Really yummy and generous portion - I... More

This place has been around for a long time and several slight name changes. The food has gotten better and better, and they have live music most nights. The wines are excellent and affordable.

No better then bar food and way over price. Service very poor. Our server never ask us if we wanted another drink and only came to our table twice {Take our order and bring the check} Not worth giving a second chance.

Cute little restaurant, usually pretty busy with locals, friends gathering especially around this time of the year. Reasonably broad menu with some items I'd like to come back to try. My salmon sandwich was good...but the bun is kind of overwhelming and dry. Sauces were good and sweet potato fries, as well. Co-diners complimented their entree's crab cakes and reuben... More

We were in Cincinnati for a weekend. I saw reviews of the Mariemont Inn and decided to stay there. This restaurant was close. When we walked in, a band was playing. Someone was celebrating a birthday. The atmosphere was cozy and felt local. The food was excellent, much better than I expected. It was just fun. I will definitely go... More

This was the Dilly-Deli years ago in the Village of Mariemont. They expanded their space but the seating is still limited so make a reservation, especially for dinner on weekends. The menu is small but there is something for everyone and the food is pretty good. We had the salmon and the fish tacos. The salmon was by far the... More

Lovely setting outside for a lunch of caprese salad, hummus with vegetables, a cup of gazpacho and a crisp rose. Highly recommended.

Welcome! Dilly Cafe's an independent, family-owned restaurant with a 26 year history in the National Historic Landmark Village of Mariemont, Ohio, just east of downtown Cincinnati along Rt.50, also known as Wooster Pike. We have grown into a full-service, contemporary American bistro-style eatery recognized as having one of the best wine and beer programs in the country. Indeed, Wine Spectator Magazine has awarded us their "Best of Award of Excellence" award two years in a row (with a special recognition for value!) Both RateBeer.com and BeerAdvocate.com have recognized our draft and retail beer selections as among the best in the world.
And ah, the food! From fresh grilled salmon fillet, to Ohio-made pastas, to grilled filet mignon, to our signature Grilled Shrimp & Asparagus Salad (a CityBeat Magazine "Best" winner!), every hungry diner is sure to find that special meal that hits the spot. Reservations for indoor dining room only (no reservations for the patio).
