Service at table was perfect. Service in lounge terrible.
Went for a post Valentine’s Day dinner with my fiancé. The service was great, the food was amazing and the view is the best in the city. Can’t say enough kind words, great experience!
Took my girlfriend here for a romantic valentines date. This place was absolutely amazing, food was phenomenal. Great service. The city view in the evening was very romantic. I will return.
My wife and I went for Valentines Day. They had an abbreviated 3 course menu. Options were acceptable for all three courses. We ordered scallops and shrimp cocktail for our appetizers. The scallops were above average. The shrimp cocktail was average. We ordered the Filet and Strip for our entrees. The steaks were cooked to order, but average. They were served with a sauce\gravy that tasted very much like Poutine. My wife commented that a steak at this price should be able to stand on its own. The third and final course was desert. We had cheese and chocolate cake. Again average. For the price, there are much better options in Cincinnati (The Precinct and Tony's come to mind). I can't imagine us returning.
We had a lovely Valentine's Day dinner at the Celestial. It's an elegant restaurant for a date. Since it was Valentine's Day, we had to choose from a fixed menu which was fine for the main course and appetizers but when it came to the side dishes--since I don't like asparagus, I had to leave part of my dinner on the plate. But to be fair, even though the menu was fixed, there were enough choices for each of the 3 courses to satisfy. My filet mignon was delicious. I ordered it medium well but there was a portion of it that was rare. It was such a large cut, though, I will forgive them.
Fantastic restaurant! Food was amazing. Views are outstanding. The restaurant itself is beautiful. Live music was very good, but is a little loud if you are seated right next to it. If you are not there to listen to the music, just request a table on the second floor or a few tables away from the stage.
My wife and I had a wonderful dinner here during 'Jazz at Dusk'! The service was excellent, the food was delectable, and the atmosphere was amazing! Highly recommend it for anyone!
There are many quality restaurants in Cincinnati that are well-maintained and provide quality service and food. The Celestial Restaurant is no longer one of those restaurants.
We had a great date night at the Celestial. The decor is out dated, you will see that in other reviews. The view of downtown Cincinnati however offsets the decor. Beautiful views of the city. Food and service was over the top. Steaks are fantastic! Our server was Tim and he was great. Go check it out you won’t be disappointed.
I was a little disappointed. The music and decor was from a 1970’s county club. The food was good but I felt over priced for the experience. The employees we encountered were excellent in their service and attention.
We started the night with the crab cake appetizer. It surprised us when it came out and there was only one on the dish with fantastic presentation. After digging in it was clear why there was only one because it was a perfect portion to accommodate the rest of dinner. My girlfriend got the eight ounce filet medium rare, with garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. I got the the twelve ounce ribeye with roasted mushrooms, asparagus and a baked potato. The presentation of both meals looked amazing and after digging in to the steaks they were exactly what we were expecting, flawless. The only downfall of the night was we sat upstairs and they happened to be partying below us with a band by the bar. Good music it was just very loud. It was an amazing night with amazing food.
Meeting old friends
Service was not up to standards.
A glass of water was spilled on the table,spoons were not available for soup and the server did not know what items were no available ie lobster.
Als o the way she talked to the attendands was not very polished.
Great meal, great service, and outstanding view! Thank you Victor for making it a wonderful evening for my wife and I.
