G Michael's consistently has the most appealing menu of any place in Columbus. And, for me, it has always been the "total package" of excellent food, great presentation, knowledgeable and friendly host and wait staff, and a great atmosphere. FOr a relatively small place, they usually have a pretty good list of specials each night too. For an added bonus, go during happy hour. You cannot beat their shrimp and grits for $6 at the bar. Go often!

Located in German Village, this is one of the must visit restaurants in Columbus. Creative dishes. Excellent service. Comfortable environment.

What an amazing diner for Valentines Day! Our server Josh went above and beyond to make our dinner one of a kind! Usually I am not a demanding dinner but on that day I was very particular on what I wanted and they, the staff (Josh), the chef and the valet treated me like a princess even though I was acting like a diva. Thank YOU to the entire staff for making my experience so amazing; one that I will remember and recommend for a long time! You can’t go wrong with G. Michael's for an occasion. This was not my first time and it surely will not be my last.

This is my favorite Columbus restaurant. The food is fantastic in both taste and presentation. I had scallops, and here's the problem: I will now forever be comparing future dinners featuring scallops with those served that night: They were that good. The armosphere is one of casual elegance, though not pretentious in any way. The menu is varied, and I have never tasted anything that wasn't great. The reastaurant is located in the German Village neighborhood of Columbus, a charming,historical, working-class area of houses, restaurants, and shops. It's fun to explore after dinner.
