Grand Finale Restaurant
Celebrated 3 birthdays.
Outstanding food and service as always!
We were in a lovely alcove, nicely decorated and very quiet. They had changed the chicken offer, we preferred their previous version. Will try something else next time.
Came here to celebrate our nine-year-old‘s birthday. Food was excellent, service was impeccable, we will be back.
We have been going here for 40 years and still love it!
I have friends who came from Columbus to eat at Grand Finale with me. I have never had your brunch, it was delicious and my friends loved it. They thought the food and service was great.
Grand Finale Restaurant has outstanding food, service, and a quiet atmosphere that is classic Victorian. Their food menu has consistant quality and their staff is very attentive.
We have been regulars for years. So we notice when things aren't up to snuff. We went to Grand Finale to celebrate a special occasion. Service was a bit slower than usual. It was the little things that got lost somehow. When you're used to excellence, you notice. No spoon. Requested limes with the water, which came later. They didn't bring rolls, we had to ask. It was freezing cold. Other diners were also cold. No one ever came to refill our water glasses. My fiance asked for fresh decaf but it was old and tasted bad. Also, no spoon was brought with the coffee. Little things just added up. Plus, there was a table with loud patrons, not all that close, yet we heard every bit of their dinner conversation throughout our entire meal. We'd like to think they were having an off night. Will we come back? Perhaps but I think we'll wait a while. The food was still excellent as always.
This was my first visit and we were not at all happy. Very over priced and to few options.
Everything was excellent M
Been there several times and always they do a great job!!
Great food with old friends. We told server we just wanted to reconnect and she gave the time to her. I tipped well because we stayed so long. She was wonderful to us.
Large group from the office went for a colleague's birthday lunch. The service was friendly and efficient - we were in and out in an hour - and the food was very good. Rolls were delivered to the table hot and fresh. The salmon croquettes with dill sauce, the chicken salad and the chicken ginger earned especially positive reviews. The restaurant décor is a bit worn/dated, but that is part of the charm!
We enjoyed the food and the ambiance. The rolls are very good as were the entrees. The chairs can be a little difficult to sit in for an extended period of time.
Always my first restaurant stop when we return to Cincinnati and it never disappoints!
Great deal with their fall specials! We had their steak dinner and salmon. Both were well prepared. Professional staff with excellent service.
Excellent service. The only change I would recommend would be more vegetarian/vegan options.
My wife and I were there on our anniversary. Very nice and relaxing, I would recommend this place to anyone.
We went here for a 13th wedding anniversary dinner. We chose the 2-for$44 option (2 dinners with a bottle of wine). We both had the salmon with asparagus and spinach crepes, with a bottle of Pinot Noir. Food and drink were perfect. We were seated in an area that was the least attractive (sometimes open-air).
It was very good experience
The only complaint I have is trying to get to the area to Hostess area. Some people were waited on and some were not but that was
Memorable, as always. Scallops alone made it worth the trip, and then there were crepes and specials and more to make it difficult to decide. Our server was great, and while I started the evening by reading the menu on line to narrow my thinking to planning to choose 1 of 2 entrees, by the time he finished describing more options I had narrowed it down to choosing 1 of 4 entrees! And a dessert, of course, at the appropriately named "Grand Finale", must be included even if you think you are too full. You can share it but only if you must! A truly special occasion restaurant, but not nearly as expensive as many of them who are not as special.
Amazing! Great food and service. Very unique restaurant.
Great food in a very nice atmosphere. The ginger chicken is amazing. I would recommend to anyone.
Birthday lunch. Food was superb! Restaurant remembered my friend’s birthday and served a nice dessert with candle.
Found the luncheon Salmon Salad be ok not great. Nothing that I would go back for. Server was lovely but kept forgetting things and didn't seem to hear our comment about our food.
Note I did have a great dinner experience there in March.
It was our 33rd anniversary & Mike made it a good one.
Wow, The food and deserts were top notch! The service was outstanding!
Had a family dinner for seven, and everything was close to perfect. The restaurant is classy informal, and a charming ambiance. We had the deviled eggs and seared tuna appetizers, both excellent. I had a strip steak, with a spinach crepe, both perfect. Everyone was very happy with their dinner, except my 10-month old granddaughter, but she hardly ate anything, and we couldn't understand her complaint.
Service was good and fast.
I only wish I'd known about Grand Finale long ago. I'll be back often.
Great food, great service, great ambiance. Perfect spot for lunch with old friends. Could not have been better.
Always beautiful place to dine. The service & food are perfection. Highly recommend Grand Finale.

We had a reservation at 11:30am on 9/15/19. The Hostess was "running around" trying to figure where she was going to put us (3 people). We were seated in a room to the right of the hostess area.
I'm not sure why be the room was full and it appeared you were seating everyone in the same area. There certainly were open tables to the left and in the section behind the doors on the other side of the buffet area.
I ordered cranberry juice and it was warm.
This is my favorite restaurant. Everything is always wonderful except the restroom, which is also very nice, except for the smell. I used to think that I had come in at an unfortunate time, but I'm there frequently and it's always the same. Please make your restroom smell as great your restaurant. Pipe some food aroma in there, maybe!
All in all it made for a very pleasant evening. I would dine there again.
Had the place to ourselves. 4 pm. Shift change from lunch to dinner. Chicken duo, the "Old, Old Way" Fresh Grouper, blackened with lemon caper butter. 2 seared scallops on the side. It just gets better every visit.
Everything was just ok. Not a good value based on the cost.
Quite noisy but food and service was just fine.
The food and service were great! We were celebrating our anniversary with friends who married on the same day. We were seated on the patio and enjoyed our dinners and desserts.
Everything was great. Grand Finale is our favorite restaurant and we were very satisfied with our dinners. We will definitely go back again.
It was a lovely experience. Thank you! We will come again.
