“Fine Restaurant near Cincinnati Ohio - Glendale Ohio”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

It had been a while since our outstanding previous visit to Grand Finale and all four of us were very pleased with our lunch yesterday. Grand Finale is about 20 minutes North of downtown Cincinnati.and easily accessible from I-75. It's a busy restaurant and we were seated next to the courtyard windows which was very pleasant. All told, the staff, service and food were wonderful. By the way, the community of Glendale is filled with lovely homes worthy of a drive around town.

“Exemplary for any occasion”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

The scenario, 80 people for a reception. From planning the reception, to making the occasion one to be remembered by all who attended, the food, the service, the atmosphere, were all outstanding. The Grand Finale ownership and staff made a special occasion that much more special.

I have eaten here several times before we threw this reception. It has always been exemplary.

Ranks as one of my all time favorites of all time.

Worth a special trip if you're within a 50 mile radius.

“Good Food- Lovely Restaurant: Terrible Parking and Dreadful Service”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

A friend recently suggested we make the trip to Glendale to eat at the Grand Finale Bistro, one of the few Cincinnati-Dayton area restaurants which make crepes for lunch. We arrived during the later part of the lunch service and were fortunate to get a reasonably quiet table .(This place has a major noise issue in the main dining room.) As we were seated the young waiter came and was hustling to get our order and what was supposed to be a "leisurely lunch" turned into chaos. The salads arrived and then simultaneously the main course ! My salad was bussed before I could finish it and say anything- as well as the butter! The Crepes which were tasty, were sloppily made in haste. In addition the waiter kept coming and asking "Are you done YET"?? So much for a leisurely lunch . IF at a sit down restaurant you do NOT want all your lunch brought and shoved at you at ANY time. Although the crepes tasted good, I would hesitate to return so as it was not a particularly enjoyable lunch and certainly not leisurely. The parking lot is very small and crowded. You may have to park out on the street so be prepared for this.
Tips: Make a reservation as it gets crowded. Try for one of the side rooms as they are less noisy. Prepare to "eat and run" they certainly don't want you to "linger" over a meal there.

“My favorite restaurant”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

The service is awesome, their food is fabulous, what more could you ask. If your meal doesn't come with a crepe, add it on. My favorite is mushroom. When I order lobster, I get it grilled. Yummy. Grand Finale is great for special events or just a great meal.
