It has been a few years since our last visit. We noticed the Grand Finale is beginning to look a bit tattered but we decided that some ways the "old" adds to its charm.

However, we recommend putting the look of the restaurant aside, go there for the excellent food and service. You won't be disappointed. Their menu offers a vast selection of appetizers, desserts, and beverages.

If you're looking for a fine dining restaurant that's not a national chain, it's our opinion Grand Finale should be on the top of your list!

We tried Grand Finale on a recommendation from a friend. Wow, we thoroughly enjoyed our Saturday evening dinner and will definitely be back again. There are a number of nice seating options in the restaurant, which is a bonus. The service was top notch...very attentive and professional without being intrusive. The menu had a number of items that looked like excellent choices...what we had (both were seafood) were excellent. Even the salad (I had the wedge) was outstanding. And of course, you need to think about a dessert, which we hardly ever do-- but it was well worth it! All in all, we had a great time with zero complaints. If you give this restaurant a try, we think you will enjoy it too!

A quiet old house in the middle of Glendale - exposed brick, antique tables and what a menu. My 91-year old mom loves to order the Scallop, Mashed Potato and Mushroom Gravy appetizer along with a wedge salad (and glass of House Cab, of course) -- The entrees are huge and tasty - but save room for dessert - cheesecakes that rise to the ceiling. Yum

The Grand Finale is my favorite restaurant! It's like having dinner in my Grandmother's dining room! The thing is, Grandma was an excellent cook, but not as good as the Grand Finale chef! The Ginger Chicken is my go to choice but I just had to try the Special of the Day, Shrimp and Salmon with artichoke hearts...absolutely delicious! Along with a bowl of Mushroom Provencal soup and a mushroom crepe on the side...makes me want to go back tomorrow!!
