Upscale steakhouse with excellent fish!

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... read more

Have not been here in 20 years and now asking myself why! Great view of the city and a nice place to relax and get a great meal!

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

Went for an anniversary dinner. Had heard good things about the place. Lobster bisque was delish and ribeye was seasoned well and extremely tender. Restaurant decor dated, reminded me of a boutique look. Beautiful scenery though!

I visit a number of places around the world and have had my share of good steaks over the years as well. While I would by no means give this the highest rating it is nonsense to suggest this place is a dive as some of these reviewers would have you believe. We visited on a Friday night with an... More

We had reservations for 3 on Sunday 2-15-2015 at 4pm. The sun was too bright at our table and we were moved to the upper tier. There was torn carpet on the walkway our friend tripped over. The silverware was water stained, windows so dirty, which made the "view" not so good! We ordered Jameson and Chevas, the waiter returned... More

We went for her birthday. Bottle of wine, lobster bisque, and we each had steak. The lobster bisque was very good, the portion seemed to be about 3/4 cup. She had the steak Oscar. The fillet was a very good cut but the rest of it was average. If that truly was king crab meat on that steak then it... More

The best service(Grant) and wonderful food. All fresh from local produce and farmers! I went for the holiday with my husband and sons and were 100% happy with the food as well as atmosphere!

Me and my fiancé went to the Celestial for New Year's Eve and the service was horrible, We had to wait 30 minutes to get drinks. My fiancé steak was overcooked. The waiter never returned to to refill our drinks and we never got the bread we asked for. When we finished the meal it took the waiter almost 45... More

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.
