Grand Finale Ratings and Reviews
Have always enjoyed visiting Grand Final ...
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

Excellent food along with great service petite filet was tender and cooked to perfect, fresh wedge and rosemary augratin potatoes were perfect. Seafood chowder was yummmmmmm. Had the red snapper special well prepared and delicious. Experimented with spinach crepe as a side and really liked it. Decor is a bit dated but doesn't detract from the experience. We will be back

Ordered the filet brochette. Very delicious and tender pieces of filet. I am a pretty big eater and thought that the portion size was decent. The white chocolate raspberry cheesecake was delicious. We very rarely have dessert when we dine out. Can't skip the dessert at Grand Finale.

Our first visit was with a large group of people and we spent more time chatting than paying attention to the restaurant, although noted it was a "keeper". Friends had visited on a separate occasion and gushed about the service and food, so we returned (driving from Columbus - 2 hours away) for another visit. The food is Excellent, the service is astounding, both the wait staff and the bus person. we ate in the back garden room and it was quiet and exceptionally pleasant. do not expect diner prices, but for the quality of the food, WELL worth the prices. Split a meal and share a dessert! it is worth the calories.

I have been dining at the GF since it opened with friends and family. In that 40 some year, the menu has barely changed and the interior has not changed at all. Last week my friend and I had a great lunch and excellent service but the restaurant needs to be closed, cleaned and updated. The toilets have always smelled bad and they continue to do so to this day. The carpet is dark and dirty that I just don't think I am going to go back for a while. I have been ordering the same dish, the same dessert and eating the same salad forever and I think it is time for an upgrade with the menu, the interior and the bathrooms.

Was always our favorite place for brunch for my wife and me,and my children till into their late teens. Your evening dinners never disappointed us. Since moving from Cincinnati we don't get to dine here except for special occasions. Keep doing what you are doing Thanks E.j.S

Enjoyed the food, however their wine list leaves something to be desired. List of American whites had at least 10 Chardonnays out of 12 total whites. Hugely disappointing as neither my husband nor I like Chardonnay . That many is too much!

I've enjoyed Grand Finale many times over the years, since around 1982, and it never disappoints! The food is phenomenal, the service usually impeccable, and it manages to maintain a casual yet upscale atmosphere. It will always be my favorite special occasion place :)

Grand Finale has long been our favorite special occasion restaurant. We hadn't been there in about two years, and while the food was great and service good, the restaurant itself looks run down. The lobby had a very musty odor, and the carpet was dirty - not a just a crumb or two - grime. I have always given Grand Finale rave reviews to friends but right now I'd hesitate to recommend it :(

Started off bad as they could not find hostess for about 10 minutes. After that service was perfect! Wife had the filet which was excellent. I had the salmon special. Fish was overlooked, but tasty. The menu has not changed for years so seems tired, but what they do they do well.

This is my favorite "go to" place every year on my birthday. This year it was a bit underwhelming. We normally sit in the garden area but was seated in the front room. I ordered the fish special and it was not very flavorful and seemed boring. While this experience will not prevent me from returning, I have to admit, this particular visit was rather disappointing.

The building, decor and ambiance are beautiful, charming. The food, although pricey, was top notch. Wait staff were all pleasant, overall a really great experience. My only discomfort was the room tempurature, 78, with only a couple ceiling fans. Probably not an issue most of the time... I highly recommend the experience but not on a really hot day.

Grand Finale just seems to get better every time we visit. I look anticipate how great the food will be and then it winds up being even better. I love the crepes and the desserts can't be beat. I highly recommend you not miss this unique dining experience.

The entree selection was varied such that everyone in the group was able to select something they would enjoy. The service was excellent. The server was attentive, yet not constantly hovering over us. Since the dining time was mid-evening, the dining room was not crowded. We wre able to talk freely, and not have to content with crowd noise. A minor complaint was that the person served the Chicken Duo noted the flavor was unique and delicious, however came out luke warm, and became cold rather quickly. Otherwies, it was a good experience.
