Horrible. It took 45 minutes to get our first drink. Soup was ok but then it took over an hour to get out entries. Mussels for my wife were cold and had to be sent back. Steaks were grizzly, tough and inedible. Service was average at best. Won't be back.

Congratulations to The Celestial for beating the the laws of physics!! In their world one minute actually lasts four. The service was tardy, the food was lukewarm at best and the drinks arrive after some time and incorrectly. Worst of all we asked the waiter to take the inedible food of the bill and asked to speak to the manager,... More

The celestial used to me our favorite restaurant in cincinnati for any type of celebration we wanted to do. Yes the setting is a bit old fashioned but the view and more importantly the food was great. On top they always had a great wine list. Last Friday we decided to go back to celebrate some good news we got.... More

I normally don't give a restaurant a second chance but I'm glad I We were greeted immediately upon arrival and seated. Jason was our server and was exceptional. Cocktail orders were placed once we arrived at the table. The timing of the service was perfect. The Lobster Bisque was slightly tangy with a rich finish. The filets were to order... More

Excelent spot. Wonderful view of Cincinnati. The food was good. We have been here twice. The bar area and atamoshpere is a little older. Nothing wrong with that. Just seems aimed at older patrons. The Bar area especially. But we had a good time and no complaints price is what youd expect for upscale dining.

I was looking for a special restaurant to show off our city of Cincinnati to a visitor who had never been here before. The Celestial did not let me down. Our party of six arrived in late daylight and saw the sights of downtown, the river, and Kentucky beyond, followed not much later when darkness fell the sparkling lights of... More

I have eaten here 3 separate times and every time it gets better and better! Highly recommend! The view is amazing. I would recommend defiantly trying the crab cake.

We were celebrating a 10th wedding anniversary a couple of months late, funds generously provided by my younger brother, and decided on this high-in-the-sky restaurant, one we've never tried before. The staff was professional, the decor was elegant, and the food outstanding. Our server was a veteran of 23 years at this location and treated us as though we were... More

The view at the celestial is so big that it will make even your largest problems seem small. It's breathtaking! The restaurant itself isn't much to write home about. It's very dated and cold. I'd go for the view and one drink then move on.
