The Celestial Steakhouse
Very Good ExperienceThe view was great. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection and tasted absolutely delicious. The mashed potatoes had a good consistency and tasted good, however, they were entirely too salty. The bread at the beginning was nothing special, but it was good.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experienceAsked for quiet table with view of city for our anniversary. The view was incredible, and the food and service were superb. The service was best I've ever had at a restaurant. Menu is a bit pricey, but for a special occasion it is well worth the money6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply SpecialI took my fiancé to The Celestial for her birthday, and as usual, everything was simply spectacular. Viktor was a true gentleman and professional to every degree. It is the best cooked food every time, and the best service every time. I always highly recommend dining here, and this visit was nothing short of truly exceptional. Job well done!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM54TH ANNIVERSARY DINNERTHE FOOD ,SERVICE ,VIEW ,WAITER WERE ALL TOP NOTCH AND I RECOMMENDED IT TO ALL MY FRIENDS.PAUL AND JOAN EAGLE6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceFirst impression is very positive, table presentation was great, view is superb and our waiter was very friendly and helpful. Ordered our food and was served in less than a half an hour after we arrived - almost too fast. Our meal was superb. My wife said that it was the best salmon that she had ever had. I felt the price was appropriate for all that we received. We will definitely be back.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Anniversary DinnerThe service was outstanding, the view unmatched, and the food very good. Special evening to celebrate an anniversary.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Date nightI thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of my experience while at the Celestial. The food was cooked to perfection and tasted as good as any I have had. The wine list is extensive, and the servers are well knowledgeable of everything on the list. To say that we had a great view of the city from our table is an understatement, it was spectacular. Watching the sunset over the city while eating a quality meal is a euphoric experience.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful EveningMy husband and I had a great time dining at the Celestial. The food was great, the view breathtaking and quietly romantic without children tugging at our legs! The best part is when the waiter surprised us with a "Happy Anniversary" dessert - the most sinful chocolate cake I have ever eaten....oh so yummy!!!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMHighly RecommendThe food and ambiance are very memorable. Starting with appetizers and ending with dessert, the food had excellent flavor. Highly recommend.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMCollege Graduation DinnerThe service in the bar while we waited for our table never materialized (they appeared short handed), but after that the evening was fantastic. We were provided a private room with a view which I had requested but did not expect for a party of 8. Victor, our waiter was awesome - and incredibly patient with us - it seems we were the last ones in the dining room when we left. The food was beautiful and delicious. It was meant to be a memorable evening celebrating a landmark - and it was spectacular.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!I went there for my wife's birthday.
Everything was great!
You can enjoy not only taste but also night view!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Evening at the CelestialArrived early to enjoy the scenic view of downtown from Mt. Adams and was seated in the bar area. What a beautiful bar room with the gigantic chandelier in the middle of the room. Our table was ready but we were given the option of the table in the main dining area or any table we wanted in the bar area. We chose the bar and set at table for two next to the window overlooking the city. As the sunset and the lights began to come on downtown, it was really nice. The food/service couldn't have been better. I sent word to the chef that our steaks were absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. Yes, it's a little expensive but when it's your anniversary, it doesn't matter. Highly recommended for your next big occassion.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA classicMy wife and I dined here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. I was a bit concerned after reading several reviews that described the steakhouse as being in disrepair. What we found was a beautiful dining room with a beautiful view of he city. The food was excellent and the service was top notch. The Jumbo Shrimp were a bit small, but everything was cooked to perfection and the presentations were top notch. We will definitely return.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Celestial delivers perfectionThis is my new favorite restaurant for special occasions. It is a little pricey, but worth every penny. The service is outstanding and the food was perfection. I had the blackened salmon and it was delicious. I also tasted my date's blackened ribeye steak and it was juicy and flavorful. My sautéed spinach was seasoned perfectly and the baked potato was large and baked to perfection. There are plenty of seats with breath-taking views. This restaurant is at the top of my list of places to eat and take out-of-town guests.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMTremendous view of CincinnatiTremendous view of Cincinnati and river. Known for its steaks and did not disappoint. Steak was tender and perfect medium. Chef special for the night included a seafood addition to the steak and risotto was excellent quality, which as you may know, may be difficuilt to accomplish. Bar was large wityh view and nightly trio entertainment on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday my night). Victor was a great server and attentive to my needs. Only drawback is the use of small wine glass for the reds. Not enough to allow wine to breath, but still a good wine.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steak! Gorgeous viewGreat steak! Gorgeous view of the Cincinnati area. Excellent service. Will definitely try it again4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAs on previous visits, foodAs on previous visits, food was very good. Service was good, but perhaps not as outgoing or engaging as in previous years -- but still good service!
There was a group of 10-15 men who were having a party, so occassionally it was loud or disruptive to couples who were trying to enjoy a quiet, special night out.
View is fantastic, so this remains a good place to make a good impression, or celebrate a special event.
Bar had live music, and great view of Cincy Reds Friday night fireworks.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant is beautifulThe restaurant is beautiful but getting a bit tired looking, the carpeting , the walls need attention. The service was excellent all around but the food was average. I t still is romantic and the view is awesome.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMI recently ate at the CelestialI recently ate at the Celestial Steakhouse with my boyfriend for an anniversary. Not only did we have an incredible view at dinner, but we were able to enjoy the Cincinnati Reds fireworks after each homerun. It was pretty cool. Our waiter was very generous and made sure we were happy at all times throughout the night. We had a wonderful experience and will definitely be coming back again for dinner.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMStill the greatest view inStill the greatest view in Cincinnati. Our steaks were perfect - better than Mortons. Precienct, etc.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food for not a bad price.The food was outstanding, aside from the fact that my wife and I got each others' steaks. I got her well-done, and she got my medium and was rather grossed out. It was no trouble to switch plates.
We both ordered the same steaks, by the way, so it would have been easy to make that mistake. Our waiter was very nice, professional, and even brought my wife a free piece of the most delicious cake ever for her birthday at no charge. Very generous and thoughtful.
I will definitely return.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated a 25th weddingWe celebrated a 25th wedding anniversary and had a terrific night. We were happy to see that the prices were not as high as we expected.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic NightAmazing!

We plan to go back with our friends.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMYou cannot beat the view...You cannot beat the view... that is for sure. This is the place for a romantic gathering or to impress someone who is visiting Cincinnati for the first time. The wine list is adequate and the food is too. The preparation and service were both en pointe. Very traditional steak house fare, although not overly remarkable.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
