Went on the recommendation of friends. We got in at 7 on a Friday and it was nearly completely empty. Decor is upscale - but incredibly dated. The food was good but unfortunately not quite enough to compensate for the other features. Decent ribeye and mussels but overall I believe the restaurant... read more

We visited The Celestial for our 50th anniversary. We did not need special seating as every table is over-looking the City of Cincinnati. It is called a steakhouse and well deserves the name. Three of our group ordered the filets and they were cooked to perfection. Our one vegetarian was not left out. There is a veggie offering in the... More

Our party of 4 was able to be seated near a window overlooking the Ohio River and downtown Cincinnati, what a view! The service was prompt, polite, and professional. Our salads, lamb chops, and steaks were tasty and prepared exactly as requested. We all enjoyed the fact that the bar and restaurant have stayed true to their vintage (35 years... More

The view and food are simply amazing. I've been to most of the best steak houses in Cincinnati (looking at you Jeff Ruby), this trumps them all. Perfect place for a date.

The view was beautiful, drinks strong, great bar service, neat design, great table service, could use some building work but I would definitely recommend this restaurant. We tried several apps, mussels, ceviche, and tomato caprese and they were all very tasty. I had a filet and my husband has the NY strip and both steaks were so flavorful and cooked... More

If you want a spectacular view of downtown Cincinnati along with a romantic, delicious meal, then this is the restaurant for you. The atmosphere is intimate with beautiful wood paneling and every table has a great view of downtown. Be prepared to pay extra for side items including salads. This restaurant has phenomenal steaks and the food is outstanding.

Wonderful view of the City was somewhat dulled by the toughness of the steaks at our table. We were 6 for 6 (guests) in our assessment of the steaks). One NY Strip, 4 Filets and one Ribeye. All were less than everage in taste and texture. This will be our last visit to aCincinnati Icon!

I went there last night, needless to mention the so 80s wood panelling that needs a 21st century upgrade...despite this the place remains very charming! The place has several rooms that can me privatised, which adds a nice touch. We had a table next to the window with a great view of the skyline. I guess a Monday night does... More

Tremendous view of downtown Cincinnati. Food was excellent. More than one guest was very complimentary of their steak. Atmosphere with private dinning room set the perfect tone for dinner. My only criticism was the choice of alcohol and beer. No IPAs. No craft beer. Selection was extremely limited. No irish whiskey. We almost resorted to Jack Daniels. They need to... More
