The Loft is a 2 level restaurant with a live music venue upstairs. Amazing food, friendly service, and delicious drinks mixed with an atmosphere you won't find anywhere else at the hub of Uptown Columbus! The Loft is a Columbus Uptown favorite, a family run business rooted in local history since 1992, combining food, fun, and music in a scrumptious and unique way. It has always been our family's goal to share with our patron's quality and value in a casual atmosphere. In short, if you love extraordinary food, the best in live entertainment plus a warm and welcoming service staff, come spend the evening with us!

The food here is average at best. I had heard rave reviews, so my friend and I decided to give it a try. We each had the special, stuffed chicken. It looked amazing, however the flavor was just ok. Also, the prices are a little much for lunch. Probably better for a date night.

We have eaten their at least once a month and never have had a bad meal. The service was great and the grouper special was wonderful. At times it can be kind of loud but they offer the upstairs if you want a quieter environment.

The ambiance was nice, however even though we had a reservation, we still waited for an hour for a seat. The place had great drinks for an average price of $8 but the food was expensive for what they gave. The food was unimpressive and very bland. The service was good once we sat down .

I want to praise The Loft for being a multi-service venue....a restaurant, a night club, a gathering place, etc.....but my favorite thing about The Loft is that they feature Jazz performances every Friday night from 7 pm to 9 pm. The performers vary each week, and there is no cover charge or fee to enjoy the entertainment. Of course, they... More

I went on a date here and it was an awesome experience from entering the establishment, being seated, served/waited on and exiting. The waitress gave good recommendations and I look forward to going back. The price was well worth it and their chocolate cake is so delicious it should be illegal!

It is an interesting old building in a cool little downtown area. The service was ok as was the food. None of it was bad but none of it was great. As for the dessert, I think they are relying on the portion to wow you. I had the pecan pie. It was two huge slices. It was not very... More

The Loft is a fun and lively restaurant. Nesha was a stellar waitress. It was a nice surprise to receive complementary homemade chips and French Dip to start. Quite tasty! I had the portabella wrap and it was delicious. It came with one side, I chose broccoli. I asked if they could steam it and it was no problem. I... More
