We went for dinner on a Saturday night. We had a reservation and was taken to our table with no waiting. The service started out ok, but later, after we were finished eating, it took forever to get our check. We finally had to go find our waiter. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked, but the sauce topping they put... More

The food was excellent. The service was unacceptable. The warm bread came out about 10 minutes before the butter. When the butter came out the bread was gone. When the meal order was placed we were asked if we wanted dessert to go...most said yes. At the end of the workshop we had to wait for the waitress to find... More

The waiter was too busy making desserts for another table while we waited feeling very hungry and just wanted bread while... More

The steakhouse to go to in Columbus. Service and food outstanding. Huge wine list. The waylaha filet just melts in your mouth. Very unique cuts of steak that can't be found at most steakhouses. Try the table side desserts.

I had dinner at the bar. Their wine list is very standard with NYC prices for both bottles and glasses. Their lounge menu doesn't have anything impressive on it. Regarding the service, horrible. The bar wasn't all that packed and two people couldn't handled the volume. I waited to place my drink order and after I placed my entered order... More

We meet our daughter for dinner this Friday evening before attending an OSU football game. There was relatively no waiting, approximately 10-15 minutes and the front desk staff was very accommodating. Once seated our server, Ted was very professional and not overly attentive as he could see we were enjoying talking with our daughter. Very nice drink and wine list... More

Was served a big, under cooked piece of stinking fish. And, basically did not do anything about it. Brought us an extra side, but could not eat the fish.
