Grand Finale Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
This is my favorite restaurant in the Dayton / Cincinnati / Columbus Ohio area. While there are a number of excellent entrees and deserts, I LOVE the Chicken Ginger with a spinach crepe side. One time, 12 of us went there and EVERYONE ordered the Chicken Ginger.
Had not been here for a long time and the Sunday brunch was divine! Starting off with juice and coffee and the option of small blueberry pancakes, the buffet was very impressive, although, not huge. I enjoyed the varied offerings along with some traditional necessities. The service was excellent; I asked for small bowls for fruit and the garlic cheese grits and the buffet server couldn't have been more accommodating.
We were seated in a small enclave which was perfect since I had requested a quiet spot.
People I was w/ have hearing issues!
Service was great and so was the food.
Surprised it wasn't more crowded , especially on a Saturday night.
Overall a very pleasant experience.
Far drive ---but well worth it .
Thank you 😊
It had been 18 years since I ate at Grand Finale. The food quality now is not near what it was. My fish was bland and my date's steak was cold and overcooked. It was overpriced and mediocre in quality. The atmosphere is pleasant. Perhaps dessert and coffee onlY if we ever dine there again. We did not order dessert.
As usual, the ginger chicken and the crepes were great. Someone else in our party had the sirloin and it was cooked beyond the requested medium rare and he thought his meal overall, including the coq au vin crepe was just OK. The other two of us thought what we had was very good. Service was attentive, but not obtrusive. Pleasant atmosphere with some people in shorts and some dressed up. Desserts looked great but no one had room for them after rolls, good sized salad, and crepe.
The Grand Finale is my favorite restaurant in the Cincinnati area. I love the food, the accommodations, the service and ambiance. This is one of a few restaurants which is exceptional in all the things I've just mentioned. I bring all my family and friends here, both small and large groups!
The girl cousins met for lunch. We loved sitting at the round table, which made conversation easier and better for those who are hard-of-hearing. We all had soup, salad or quiche combos because we were all looking forward to desserts. And the desserts were wonderful! We enjoyed all of it and have talked about coming back. Most of us have been at the restaurant before, so we knew we were getting great food and wonderful desserts. Thank you.
I dine out more than most so I can say with some experience that this is one of the nicest restaurants one can ever visit. Set in a house built in what looks like the early 1900's and garnished with very beautiful scenery in the courtyard, easily seen via the abundant windows, the warm ambiance was right up my alley. I would score the atmosphere as 6 stars (out of 5) if I could. The service was great, the food was delicious and the restaurant and utensils were all very clean. The entree choices were inventive but still exuded an eye toward "comfort food," which equals a home run in my opinion. I was able to truly focus on having a wonderful time with my wife on our 32nd wedding anniversary. I have already recommended The Grand Finale to others and I will be back!
I brought my sister to celebrate her retirement this past Saturday. It was a beautiful day and our seats were in the area by the patio. Enjoyed looking outside at the flowers while we enjoyed a delicious lunch. The service was excellent. We made a wonderful memory and look forward to future celebrations at the Grande Finale.
The Grand Finale is one of our favorite "worth an hour drive restaurant." It has an "old fashion feel" with new fashion cuisine" and "wonderful service." The food is delicious and the setting is very nice (if possible - ask for the garden room. We enjoy Grand Finale each time and every time.
With a unparelleled, delicious menu and vintage charm, the Grand Finale has been my favorite restaurant for over 30 years! We have enjoyed many intimate evenings, daytime gatherings and large celebrations here... the food, atmosphere and service are consistently excellent.
The building is beautiful inside and the outside patio is gorgeous. The food was great. We had the filet minon with spinach and mushroom crepe, the lobster soup and lobster deviled eggs. The soup was the most delicious. The steak was slightly more rare than ordered. The service was okay- he did a lot of avoiding us it seemed. Absolutely amazing "bus ladies" though. They were constantly on it. Kind of would have preferred one of them to be our server! The temperature was absolutely freezing the entire time and kind of wrecked some of the experience for me. :( other tables were being incredibly boisterous and loud. We wanted a more private quiet environment, and ultimately I don't think this was it.
Always try to deviate from my routine 'chicken ginger' selection, came close to scallop salad but just couldn't do it! Where for lunch can you get such a remarkable selection of entree, salad, crusty French rolls and delicious crepes in a beautiful room surrounded by fresh flowers and garden court yard for barely over the cost of fast food?! My fav lunch destination of all time! You did not disappoint!
