Grand Finale Ratings and Reviews

Cousins from Chicago were in town, and our Sunday brunch was lovely and just right for a get-together. The food was OK but not noteworthy. The service was excellent. The chairs in the Garden Room were somewhat uncomfortable and tight to go in and out for buffet service. However, it was a pretty day, and we enjoyed the morning.

Very quaint and great for doing something special. It was a mom and pre teen son night out, I didn't want to splurge on a full meal here, but we got into some nicer clothes and went here in the evening for dessert and talking.
Sometimes it helps to be in a different setting to have good conversation, and this place provides that. --- and an incredible ice cream puff never hurts either!

Grand Finale continues to provide great food and the best cheesecake around! I had not been to Grand Finale in quite a few years and the restaurant continues to serve with excellence! The service was great (thank you Andrea!) and we enjoyed her wine recommendations. It was the perfect dinner place to celebrate our anniversary!

Grand Finale is a staple in Cincinnati dining. While not super fancy it is definitely a bit upscale. I think you could go there in business casual but I might feel funny in shorts and sandals.
The food is excellent and the atmosphere feels like you are back in time.
We have never been disappointed, and frequently surprised.

I have been going to the Grand Finale all of my life. It is a Cincy treasure. The chairs are terribly uncomfortable but the ambiance is good. The crepes are good, but the food is rather ordinary. I don't know if after living in NY, Paris and Boston my palette has changed a lot and the food is the same and I am different, but the food doesn't impress me. However, their clam chowder did. The reason I went the other night was because when I was there in the summer, I tried the chowder and thought it was OUT of this WORLD good. So, I went for that the other night and they did NOT have it!!! I was greatly disappointed. I would go back for a bowl of that and because the place is a Cincy relic, but not for any other reason!

We were there for lunch. I was disappointed that we had paper napkins instead of cloth. I always thought they provided a touch of elegance. Also I think our server was stretched to too many tables for quick service. He was doing his best to serve all of his tables.

First and foremost I would like to say my wife and I have enjoyed this restaurant for the last 10 years. We drive from north of Dayton (50 minutes) just to dine here for special occasions. We even purchase gift certificates for others to enjoy.
We have always had great service and the food is generally delicious. The ambiance is what makes this a great "date night" or special occasion location. It has a historic look and feel that sets the mood. The menu is generous in choices and the cheesecake is wonderful.
On this occasion we had an early dinner and despite a situation we had with flies (first time ever), I believe Grande Finale will remedy this situation before our next visit.

Love the quaintness of this charming restaurant.
Our server, Russ C, was one of the best we've had at ANY restaurant in the area. He was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and polite. Kudos to him for outstanding service.
The Grand Cafe coffee was simply delicious. The shrimp and asparagus, with a spinach crepe, was the perfect meal. It was tasty and presented artfully.
The only drawback to our lunch was a rather loud group of ladies who were seated at a table next to us. While it was pleasant to hear laughter, knowing they were having a good time, it was sometimes overly loud and disruptive to our quiet meal. You may want to request a table in a corner or smaller room if you prefer a quieter setting.

I took my parents who are both elderly and using walkers now. They used to enjoy coming here over the years. We have not been in a while. We have had many family dinners and family celebrations at the Grand Finale. As always today was no different. The Service was amazing. The food was delicious. The atmosphere delightful. Thank you again for a wonderful afternoon with my parents.

We were with a few other couples. The service was fantastic. The food was okay but certainly not something worth bragging about. My husband had a steak that was okay. It was not a filet. However the highlight and worth everything was the dessert

Some friends invited me here because I had never been, and it is one of their "special occasion" places. It is worth going just to see the stained glass and antiques, but, the food is also worth a visit. Unlike many upscale places, entrees include a salad and a side dish, so, while it isn't an inexpensive place, it is still reasonable, and a good value for the price. I really enjoyed the French onion soup, and the grilled scallops appetizer. We were there midweek and it wasn't very busy, so we felt like we could relax and take our time.

My husband and I went to The Grand Finale for our 36th wedding anniversary. It was cozy and quiet, service was excellent and the food was outstanding. We requested a window seat and enjoyed watching the busy streets. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for any occasion.

Everything was very good. food exceptional. We were seated in the quiet room, which was not very quiet. Busser handling dishes right next to us was very noisy and plates, etc. clattered. besides dropping things and not even apologizing. especially a pitcher with water. 2 servers but ours had the bulk of customers to take care of.

Food was not as good as expected based on past experience. There was a large party of women who were very noisy, and it took us a very long time to get served. As a result, we were there almost an hour and a half.

Good food, good service, nice garden view. Noise level was low (something hard to find these days), but we were there early on a Sunday evening and the crowd was light. Hadn't been there for many years, but based on this experience, will plan to return soon.

Have always enjoyed visiting Grand Finale. Excellent food and service in a charming atmosphere. This trip was marred by the smell from the restrooms. They are located in the waiting area near the front door and the smell was noticeable as soon as we walked in. We had a lovely table by the window in the front room, but occasionally caught a whiff of those toilets. When using them they appeared clean, but still, that smell. Perhaps the exhaust fan was not working, or they need a deep professional cleaning. When that's the first thing you notice and the last thing you remember on leaving, it was not a favorable experience.

We were first time diners and very excited about coming. Our greet time was an awkward 10 minute wait and we ended up having 2 servers who each thought we were their table. Both nice and professional none the less. The food was mediocre at best, not a very big selection and not so good to be honest. We both had 2 small plates and for $40 definitely not worth the money. There's so much competition now for brunch, it would be a good idea to go above and beyond for that price.

We had a girls birthday lunch. The food is always wonderful, and hard to decide because everything is so good. The server made the day for us. He was friendly, fun and professional. He went way beyond the call of duty and made the lunch very memorable. Thanks
