Consistent, great food

I have been coming here atleast once a year with my mom for a special dinner. We consistently get great food and good service. Our last outing I had a filet oscar special and the filet cut like butter. We always get the baked artichoke hearts, which isnt on the menu, but its a favorite of my... read more

Grand Finale is a local hometown favorite. Known for crepes and steak but great fish. Most have the staff have been there for years and years. They know the menu and are eager to recommend a meal to meet your needs. Prices are high medium but there are options. Great desserts and a good bar.

We've had Sunday brunch and lunch here. Both were VERY good! Quaint atmosphere but somewhat noisy. Our meals were so good and filling we have yet to sample their "Grand Finale" desserts!! Our plan is to return for coffee and a "grand finale" only!!!

Numerous members of my family gathered in Cincinnati to celebrate my mother's 87th birthday. We decided upon the Grand Finale in Glendale, OH (located in the northern sector of Greater Cincinnati) as the venue, since they offered a Sunday brunch which we had heard about. The experience, however, was somewhat disappointing. First off, the restaurant is considerably small and so... More

As a regular visitor from England to Cincinnati, I have checked out quite a few places over the years. I would never have described any as "charming" until I came to the Grand Finale. This place has a style and charm all its own. The food is well presented and classical bistro fare, with the selection of desserts the highlight.... More

We've eaten at the Grand Finale several times over the recent past years. It has long been a favorite. Service has almost always been impeccable, food selections diverse, food quality excellent, and prices commensurate with food and service. The atmosphere in the dining area per se is quaint. The atmosphere in the atrium area a bit less formal...and a bit... More

We had a groupon coupon and visited the bistro on July 3rd. I ordered the mushroom avocado salad and my husband ordered the Caesar. Both salads were fresh and delicious. For our main entree, I ordered the chicken with nutmeg crepes and my husband ordered the ham crepes. Both came out hot from the oven. The wait staff made sure... More

I went with a group of ladies that I use to work with. We sat in the enclosed patio. The restaurant is an old home and it's beautiful. The desserts are a work of art and absolutely worth trying! Martinis are good too. I would recommend it.

We met some old friends at Grand Finale to catch up. We all had meals from their specials menus that were very nice (samon and chicken dishes with salad, crepes and wine at a good value point). For me the crepes and desserts make this a special place, many come for dessert only. The service was excellent and we closed... More
