Been there for about 50years so they must do it right. Located in an old roadhouse with lots of antiques. Servers are all friendly, experienced & professional. We started with the Divers scallops w mashed potatoes which were very good. Dish can easily be divided for sharing by two. Entrees were Ahi tuna & the Filet mignon brochettes & again... More

Easter brunch was excellent. The atmosphere was elegant, calm and the food was excellent. We were able to spend quality time with the family talking while eating without feeling rushed. The service was on point.

We have been going to the Grande Finale for many years and spent many a New Years Evening there. It has, for the most part, retained a good standard for food, service and atmosphere. That being said, it is not what it used to be. Maybe my expectations are too high, based on what they were 20 years ago. When... More

We had not been to the Sunday brunch in a while and friend wanted to go and we loved it. It is very busy so I recommend making a reservation. My friend said they tried to come there without a reservation a few months ago and had to go somewhere else due to the wait. Anyways, they have the basics... More

Ginger chicken was highly touted but found it to be overwhelming with the ginger. Scallop salad was good but overpriced. Atmosphere was good, service was average. Best thing we had was the bread and the soup.

Continue to go to the Grand Finale, and the food and service just continues to be fantastic! Has been on of my favorite places in Cincinnati since 1977. In fact I think that it is actually getting better!

Went with a group of family (9 of us) for brunch on Sunday. They have a great buffet with a mixture of traditional breakfast foods (eggs, bacon, pastries, bagels) as well as some quiches and crepes. In addition there was fresh fruit and some of their desserts. Fresh-made pancakes were also brought to the table as a part of the... More

We have visited this restaurant over the past 30 years. It has always been very good. However, this time was not up to par. The waiter was average at best. After our meal was delivered the waiter did not return until we had consumed over 50% of it. I ordered my steak medium well and one side was well done... More

Visited today (December 11 2016. Had not booked table -as we did not know this was necessary, were given a table upstairs which was not ideal with a 3 and 6 year old. Upstairs was very cold with constant cold air blowing directly onto us , which made the food very cold quickly. Ordered coffee and had to ask again... More
