We went back to the Celestial after many years since our last visit. We found the same restaurant we remembered, Quiet, great views of the Ohio river and downtown Cincinnati. Our server, Tim, was very attentive without being stuffy or disturbing. The food was very good. My wife had the two 8 ounce lobster tails and I had the lobster... More

Really wanted to give this a better rating... the steak with crabmeat was great. So was the view. The service was OK. Staff were all friendly but the night ended bizarrely... we went for my wife's birthday and I must have mentioned that to the server, Tim, during our meal. At the end, he commented that dessert was coming for... More

Got an AirBnb in Mt. Adams for our anniversary weekend, and walked to this restaurant. Got a table right next to the window overlooking the lights of downtown Cincinnati. Service was great, food was even greater, overall this is about as romantic a dinner experience that you can get! But it would be great for any special occasion. The steak... More

Very, very pleased with the server and staff for making a special night for my wife and me. The food was well presented and delicious! With only a few others in the restaurant early on Wednesday evening, we were escorted to the south corner overlooking the river. Fantastic meal and experience.

We came here for our anniversary dinner. I was rather concerned from the reviews I had read. But I was happily surprised with the experience. We had a corner table and Tim waited on us. He was great. Offered to split salads and soups with no charge because we couldn't decide what we wanted. He asked us if we were... More

We were greeted with confusion about where we should sit, but the hostess, not us. THe waiter was far too friendly with us. He also opened the wine behind my back which is poor wine etiquette. The food was OK but not for the price. We were there on a Friday and the place was sparsely attended, so I am... More

First, our server Bisa was awesome! Attentive and polite! Easily earned the 20% tip. Great view of downtown Cincinnati and the food was perfect. The 4 of us each had something different for entree and dessert and it was all very good. We checked out coats and upon leaving our coats were retrieved and the gentlemen helped us on with... More

Went to this place for a special birthday dinner and came away wanting a lot more. Our table was crammed in a corner and that wasn't a good way to start. The waiter was slow and well just unprofessional. He seemed very lost and not in control. Our meals were good not great and the entrees took a very long... More

I made reservations through Open Table, and they were confirmed by the restaurant. The day of our dinner, Dec 24th, I receive an email saying they cancelled my reservation. Immediately called them, and the same person (strong Indian accent) answered. Explained the email and he said he accidentally cancelled the wrong reservation. He asked all of my details again and...
