My family and I ate here exactly a year and had a great experience, food and service. So we were expecting the same last night but that was not the case. Food: I'm a strict vegetarian and online their menu has a veggie option however they did not have this option. When I told the server and Chef this, they... More

Though hard to find and get to, Celestial was well worth the effort. Tucked away at the back of a condominium tower on Mount Adams, this special find is sure to please. Be prepared to be impressed. The service was impeccable. The food delicious and the view amazing. This is fine dining at its best for sure. I hope we... More

It was a great experience! We thought this was on the top of a high building but it turned out to be on the side of a "hill/mountain" it was a great view of the city and bridges. The food was fantastic. My husband said that it was the best steak he has every had. The servers were friendly. I... More

I took my wife to this recommendation that it had the best view of Cincinnati. We were impressed. My wife and I both enjoy excellend steaks. Are seats were next to the large windows allowing us to see all of Northern Kentucky's riverfront and Downtown Cincinnati. Made great for after dinner photos and the early evening sunset. We had a...

We had 50 people who went there on a Saturday night for a set menu choice business dinner. The ambiance and view from above the bar area was outstanding. Our choices included a strip steak, filet Oscar, chicken and salmon. Everyone enjoyed their dinners. Not one person in 50 said their meal was less than excellent. Literally the soup, salad... More

Wonderful view from the top of Mt. Adams! Service was a little slow, but to be fair the waiter got slammed all at once. The shrimp and cheese grits were great, and my cousin loved his chicken. We both agreed the creme brûlée was one the best ever! Nice choice for a relaxing dinner after the play in Eden Park.

Visited this restaurant recently with a group of colleagues from IHeart Radio. Food was outstanding views of Cincinnati breathtaking and the chops 4 Stars in my book. Service excellent and overall dining experience top notch.

I had read the negative reviews but still was excited to go to this iconic Cincinnati restaurant. The view is amazing but the negative reviews are also true, i.e., the food was cold, service spotty, portions small, and the décor hasn't changed since the '80's maybe '70's. As far as service goes - we had the opposite experience as everyone... More

We went to the Celestial for our 20th wedding anniversary. It was the sight of our rehearsal dinner. I can tell you this place has gone down hill. I should have gone to Outback. I would have better food and service for half the price. Everything took forever to get. Our drinks took so long to be delivered that the... More
