The Celestial Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews

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!

My fiancé and I enjoyed dinner there for his birthday. I requested and got a window seat. Very beautiful view overlooking downtown. The food was great, the atmosphere was very nice and our waiter was great. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
Atmosphere needs updating BAD. Service was great.
When I dine at place with high prices for food and drink I expect to be blown away. Or at least impressed by the atmosphere and over all quality of the experience. The best part of our experience was the service from Tim, our waiter and the view. I grew up in Cincinnati so I've seen the city from every angle possible. So it no longer impresses me. The food was nothing better than just ok. The owner needs to renovate and update the place. The carpet needed replaced ten years ago. Alot of the furniture needs some refinishing work. The windows are terribly Sun damaged and need some work or replaced. When you charge high prices for food and drink that you can get for half the price elsewhere, you can only justify the prices by saying that your paying for the atmosphere. Which unfortunately is at least twenty years past needing done. We won't be back unless it's for a reopening after an extensive renovation.
First Time Visitors
I took my wife there for a Mother's Day treat and was not disappointed. This was the first time we ate at the Celestial Steakhouse, and we will be back. The food and service were first-rate. The view overlooking the Ohio River was wonderful.
You have to go hear at least once.
Very relaxed atmosphere. Food was outstanding. Our server Tim was beyond outstanding. This was my first time there but we will definitely be returning. Steaks were tender and juicy. The Crab Cake appetizer was soooooo good I could have even two of them myself. Like I said, you have to go here at least once.
