Tina and the staff at deSha's has been so accommodating, fair, and professional every time we host our annual fundraiser there.

We were so lucky to have deSha's step up to help us one year when the venue we had booked fell through at the last minute. They never disappoint!

Great rehearsal dinner! - An Eventective User from Cincinnati Ohio

My son’s rehearsal dinner was in the Nicholson room. It’s was great! I went in the morning and dropped off colorful bags for party favors and cards for each guests to fill out with marriage advice. And I took donuts to have for dessert. Well when I returned every place setting was set up already. So colorful and pretty with the champagne flutes already set. I set up a slideshow and it worked great. I couldn’t figure out the sound but that was my fault. The food was fabulous. The service was great. They served the donuts and gave us boxes to take them home. Everyone had a full glass of prosecco which was great. It was a cash bar. I think the staff were surprised at all of the alcohol being purchased LOL but they immediately brought in more servers to help and everything went very smooth. Tina was fabulous and I’m so glad that she didn’t get upset with my calls and questions. She was ok with my obsessive need of perfection lol. I highly recommend!

Amazing Wedding Reception - An Eventective User from Cincinnati , Ohio

I planned my wedding in Cincinnati while I was living in California , it was kind of last minute decision to do a reception. I found Desha's online and I could not have been so lucky! Some of my friends already knew the place and told me to go for it because it would be great. And it was beyond great. Tina took care of everything and was so patient about my choices and bad memory, the rooms are so beautiful and they also offered linens and candles. Food was amazing and Staff super friendly. Everything was perfect and all my guests loved it. If you are looking for a place to have a big group event, contact deShas`s and you wont regret.. They are amazing! thank you so much :)

Attentive Wait Staff - An Eventective User from Hamilton, OH

Graduation Dinner - An Eventective User from Cincinnati

This restaurant was perfect for my graduation dinner.. the room was nice and intimate and they accommodated my ovrerflow. The food came fast and was fresh and hot.

We will be back!

Private Party - Perfect! - An Eventective User from Mason

This is the second baby shower that I have hosted at deSha's. As with the first time, everything was absolutely perfect. The staff was hospitable and ensured all of our needs were taken care of. Tina did a great job managing and coordinating all the logistics/planning details. Flawless execution, great food, great service! I highly recommend deSha's for hosting private parties!

Great place to host a shower - An Eventective User from Cincinnati

We hosted a bridal shower with 41 guests and the setting was great. Tina was efficient from start to finish and made certain that the seating plan was comfortable for all. There were no hidden surprises and the bill was exactly as expected. A buffet was set up and a table was provided for desserts and two tables were set up for gifts. We ordered the sandwich luncheon buffet which included three different sandwiches, fruit, Saratoga chips and sauce and Mac n cheese. Everyone commented on how good the food was! However, part of the reason I’m giving this four stars instead of five was because the spring mix salad (which we added for $45) was hardly touched - frankly, it appeared to be leaves from a tree and did not appear appetizing. A positive was that all food not eaten was packaged up nicely for us to take home, though. The servers were very nice but several people mentioned getting their initial drink but no one came back in the 2+ hours we were there to refill. However the lack of refills for some guests and the salad were our only negatives In conclusion, I would recommend deSha’s for a luncheon event and look forward to booking in the future. Overall, a good experience with many positive comments from our guests.

Perfect venue for a Ladies Night Out Program - - An Eventective User from Cincinnati, OH

Tina was amazing in helping us plan our ladies night out at DeShas! The appetizers were great, and the selection of beverages we were able to offer with our drink tickets was great.

Wonderful location for a private event - An Eventective User from West Chester, OH

I recently hosted a baby shower in the Rookwood room at DeSha's. We had a great time and the staff at DeSha's was very accommodating. They helped carry in decorations and dessert from my car, held doors, offered to help put up decorations, brought us scissors and tape when we realized we forgot it, and were generally very attentive. We were allowed to order off the menu individually which made it much easier to host. The rental cost was very reasonable as well, not to mention the food is great. Would definitely host an event there again!

Excellent Service - An Eventective User from Cincinnati, OH

The service from the first phone call through the end of our event was excellent! Tina explained the process to make it easy and painless. She was excellent in her response times. The waiting staff was great! Kind, courteous, non-intrusive, and forward thinking. I would strongly recommend deSha's for a quiet, private meeting.

Perfect Retirement Celebration Venue - An Eventective User from Cincinnati, OH

Our entire party (46 people) were very delighted with the entire event held at de'Sha's. We had a very nice and private setting which allowed us to mix and mingle during our stay. The responsiveness of the staff was phenomenal! They literally had each glass full and cleared the tables as soon as we finished. The food was delicious from the spread of appetizers to the well proportioned buffet and the amazing dessert trays - well done! Something that everyone commented on is how perfect it was to serve the children their chicken tender meals first so that the adults could walk through the buffet. It was so well coordinated! Thank you so much to Tina Morris for her support and advice throughout the entire process! She is best in class when it comes to party planning! We appreciate how awesome everything was and will always have this as a special memory for years to come! All the best! Amber Geyer

Great Venue and Food - An Eventective User from NEW YORK, NY

Space was perfect and food was excellent. Tina was great at assisting in planning especially as I am from out of state.

A wonderful experience - An Eventective User from West Chester, OH

We couldn't be happier with Desha's. This was our family's 3rd time having a family event at this facility and it was just as great as the other 2 times. The event planner, Tina, was very easy to work with. I had a lot of questions and concerns which were handled very well. One concern was the timing of the food (we had a few that had to leave early). They definitely exceeded my expectations with this. We were allowed to come in 15 minutes before they opened and they had the food delivered to our table sooner than was stated. When we arrived, everything looked awesome. I believe everyone in my party loved the taste of their food (I know I did), the waiter that served us was attentive and efficient. I can't think of one thing that was deficient. Our previous party was my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. My dad enjoyed it so much, he is the one that suggested having my mom's 90th birthday party at Desha's.

Family party venue - An Eventective User from Madison

The Rookwood Room was perfect for our cozy family gift exchange. Everyone at DaSha's was welcoming and the server for our party was so attentive, yet not in the way of our good time. We had a wonderful time and I highly recommend DaSha's for any get-together. The food was good too!
