The Celestial Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

The Celestial sits atop Mt. Adams with a great view of downtown Cincinnati. The window arrangement in late afternoon puts you in direct sunshine which can be uncomfortable for any person looking into the sun or feeling its heat. Prices are high for the level of decor since I paid about $120 for dinner for two and my date had a salad! It would appear that maintenance on the wood surfaces is in need of repair for some surfaces. The food was excellent, but you would expect that for a $38 8-ounce steak.

I go to The Celestial a couple of times a year and normally rave about their food, but this was a disaster. It was my birthday and I was looking forward to the lobster bisque, which is Normally the best in the country. This time, a can of Campbell's tomato soup would have been better!!!! No lobster, no flavor, have I mentioned a can of soup? My husband's medium steak was Well-done, Carmelized Brussel sprouts were sitting in a soup full of liquid, certainly not Carmelized, and mashed pots were Luke warm. Manager took off my husband's dinner, but we still had to pay $100 for my dinner, which was just ok. Not sure what happened in the kitchen other than it completely fell apart.

We went to The Celestial after researching some different restaurants on Open Table. I am so glad that I did. We were celebrating our 22nd wedding anniversary and this restaurant couldn't have been a more perfect choice. The ambiance, service and food were all outstanding. The view was spectacular! Our server even brought us out a dessert since and volunteered to take our pic as a remembrance. We left with such a good feeling that we definitely recommend and will go back even if we are not celebrating.

The view from the second floor was beautiful for out of town guests. The decor is dated--tears in the carpet etc. and the food was overpriced. I had the Sea bass and it was extremely dry. My table mates had steak dishes and they were pleased. I would recommend once but not a second time.

We had a very nice time and enjoyed the meal very much. We stayed at the bar where Steve took care of us. He was fun and knowledgeable about the menu. The chandelier is beautiful and while we were there a two hour storm came in from the south and we had front row seats. At one point we couldn't even see any other buildings outside of the massive window. Most of the time there is no better view of the city.

The steaks were very good. The sides were not that great. Stay away from any of the "mashed potato" type dishes. The baked potato was good.
There was only one other table in the restaurant with diners. We waited LENGTHY periods of time for our food, and for beverages, etc.
It has potential. The view is wonderful.

I had the Celestial Oscar filet, and it was AMAZING. My husband's steak also received two thumbs up, and he's a bit of a steak snob.
Our server forgot to bring my husband's second bourbon, but he ended up not charging us for either drink, so we were fine with that.
An excellent experience! Less foodie, more old school, which can be lovely.

The food was terrific. My wife and I came here for our anniversary and I read some mixed reviews beforehand. We both had the filet with crabmeat on top and it was every bit as good as the similar meal offered by a few Jeff Ruby places. My only complaint was that after we were served, I could tell our server must have gotten busy or something because we were not checked on again until we were finished and asked for our check. Otherwise it was a great experience.

Pretty View, located in a neat like area of Mt. Adams. Pricing but new that coming in. Waiter started off not the friendliest but warmed up. Our seats were semi private but a larger party was seated in close proximity which created some extra noise. Overall nice.

I made reservations for our 17th wedding anniversary. We loved the food! Although for someone who doesn't eat seafood, there wasn't a great choice of appetizers. I got the onion straws as an appetizer. My husband loved the shrimp! Our meals were great and we will definitely come back! The only negative comment I have is that the carpet was pretty worn and it and the wood chopped on wooden columnes, so it could probably use a remodeling upgrade. Other than that, we enjoyed it and will come again. We usually go to one of the Jeff Rubys but I wanted to try something different. I wasn't sure if my husband would like it bc he loves Carlos and Johnnys, but he enjoyed himself and loved the food! Thank you for helping us had a wonderful anniversary dinner and the view was beautiful!

Great experience again. Celebrated our32nd wedding anniversary and were treated royally. We have come here on several wedding anniversaries. Definitely a special occasions place. Go and spend the $...it's worth for the view, the service andthefood

Pros: awesome view, great service. My lobster bisque was ok but all other food was really good. They did a good job on cocktails too. Free and easy parking (we went on a Tuesday).
Cons: nothing really , just noted that some of the furniture and carpet looked a little dated.
They had some soft rock/ 80s music as ambient music which was interesting for a steakhouse. But nice change from the normal jazz and Sinatra stuff
Good place and we'd go back for sure.

We entertained neighbors as a 'thank you' for many past courtesies. Our table had a spectacular view of the city. The server, Jon was very attentive but not hovering. Everyone's entrée was memorable; my wife had a salmon dish, our guests had steak and I had the best pork chop of my life. The before dinner gin martini was perfect and the wine was very good. This is a place to take out-of-towners for a memorable view of the city and a great time. And, it's nice for us locals too.

The food was excellent, the waiter was outstanding, and the view is incredible. The prices aren't cheap, but you definitely get what you pay for. The Celestial is an awesome spot for celebrating special occasions!
