Grand Finale Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

Grand Finale was the setting for our first date and has remained a favorite for almost 40 years. The atmosphere, the food and the service have remained consistently good. We have never been disappointed with a meal at Grand Finale.

Food disappointing compared to what used to be very good. I had rack of lamb, overcooked to well rather than medium. think they have changed their chef and butcher. Husband ordered fillet mignon just OK was his comment. Plates were cold for entrees compared to the very hot dishes the crepes were served in. mushrooms in salad used to be shaves but now are big chunks and don't like that. were given a birthday dessert to go, the white chocolate mousse, my favorite. I told them when I come next time I will be sure to ask for a hot plate for my food! Have been going here for 35 plus years and it was almost empty compared to what it used to be like. Do much better food wise there for lunch nowadays.

As always, the Grand Finale did not disappoint in any way. the food, service and ambience were all excellent! This is a landmark restaurant in the Cincinnati area and I invite anyone who hasn't tried it to do so.

We have been customers for about 33 years now. I have never been disappointed. The Lobster and Filet is wonderful. Service has always been great. It's a great place for a special occasion. The food is certainly the finest in the area.

At lunch there during the Christmas season where we had great service and great food.
Chicken pot pie highly recommended with its pastry crust. Also enjoyed the crab cakes.
Love the coziness of the many separate rooms in this beautiful building.

We were really looking forward to coming to the Grande Finale but left disappointed.
I ordered the Ginger Chicken which came highly recommended by our server. The flavor was good but the chicken was so tough and dry, I could barely cut it with a knife.
A couple of us had the mushroom crepe. We agreed it was just OK. The sauce was soupy and the mushrooms were rubbery.
Two entrees were served cold.
One person got the Tenderloin Benedict. It was served without the puff pastry. The server kindly returned it and brought her a new order with the puff pastry. However, she imagined the entree was to be served inside a larger puff pastry instead of a couple of dollops on the side. The distinction was not clear on the menu. In addition, the Tenderloin was tough and very chewy.
The servers and staff were excellent. The salad, bread, and coffee were excellent as well.
Would I go back? Maybe but not likely.
I've been to Grand Finale several times ...
I've been to Grand Finale several times over a few years and always had an enjoyable experience, so I want to be clear that this review is solely based on my Sunday Brunch experience. I took a 94 yr old family member for her birthday on Sunday. I was disappointed to find we couldn't order from the regular menu, so we were stuck with the buffet style brunch. For $17.99 per person, I expected much better quality and variety of food. Seriously, I think I would have been happier with the buffet at Frishch's. Food was just warm and really quite tasteless. We were told that blueberry pancakes and sauteed mushrooms came as side orders with the brunch so I ordered us one of each. It wasn't until we'd finished our meal that I realized they had never arrived, so I reminded the waiter (who had barely paid us any attention), and he apologized and brought us some. The mushrooms were very good, but the single pancake was about 2-3 inches in diameter. Again, for $17.99, a complete and utter disappointment. I will go back for the regular menu, but never again for the Sunday brunch.

We have been dining at Grande Finale for years and have always enjoyed the atmosphere, décor and service. I have hosted bridal and baby showers there as well. The only think I don't like is
the smell from the restrooms.. Its horrible. Wish they would update plumbing.
Sirloin steak was try and appearance was not so good either. All else was fine.

We had a nice lunch celebrating the Christmas season with friends. The food was great and the service was better than one might expect during the busy Holiday season. I never have had a bad experience at Grand Finale.

Okay. A little chilly if you are seated by the outside wall. Service was good considering there was a good holiday crowd. We were accommodated when we requested a different table which was a little crowded for 3. Value a little pricey.

I haven't been to Grand Finale for several years and always wonder why I don't go more often. Everyone was friendly and helpful. Bryan our server was great. Food delicious. Restaurant was full but they didn't hurry us when we finished.

I felt the food quality was not what it has been in the past. I ordered a chicken breast and it was scraps of chicken that were tough. I had to send it back. Salad was just the cheap bag lettuce you get at Sams but the avacado dressing made it better.
