Description: 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!

Came in for lunch. I got the Italian salad with grilled shrimp and I was not disappointed. Very good. My wife got the Parmesan encrusted tilapia but she was not thrilled with the sauce. Her accompanying vegetables and potatoes were luke warm. All in all we enjoy the Loft and we'll return. The staff are very friendly and the menu... More

Went here on a Friday night during the summer so I'm not 100% sure that was the best time to go. I ordered a drink which I was really excited about (I'm thinking, college bar scene--drinks have got to be good here...) which turned out to taste like something I made in my kitchen while still drunk. Not good at... More

Downstairs at The Loft is a great place to go for a good lunch but you need to get there as close to opening as possible as they fill up fast. The lunch menu is minimal but the food is great! I've had the shrimp and grits, the strawberry salad, grilled chicken salad and many other things and the food... More

Love the mac n cheese ribeye and asparagus. Great desserts. I had reservations and the host tried to give me a crap table. I also don't like that half of their tables are high-tops...I find those very uncomfortable.

I really like the atmosphere of the place. I hate chains so anything local or even feels local is nice to us. My wife's workplace had their Christmas party there and she's still singing it's praises.

But not inexpensive - a Salad, mainly lettuce with grilled chicken on top will run you around $15 (tax and tip included.) Ambiance? Not so much. Good bar.

Our group of six had a wonderful dinner here last night. Located in downtown Columbus, The Loft has a nice atmosphere, and great food. We were seated within ten minutes of our arriving with call-ahead seating. The selections pleased our new Army Lieutenant as well as three grandparents. The buffalo chicken dip appetizer was wonderful, and the prices seemed appropriate.... More

We called ahead and were seated within minutes. The menu has quite a few unique and healthy items you wont find at the chain places. I had a wild mushroom burger with roasted red pepper couscous. It was excellent. They don't go overboard on the salt or butter, but the flavor is amazing. We had the fried brie with pita... More

This was my 5th or 6th time to The Loft for dinner. I have always had a great and this was no exception! Good food, atmosphere and service. My wish list for The Loft: 1. Expand to the second floor. You have the space - use it. 2. Expand the main course menu - it hasn't changed in years. 3.... More
