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!

Average...what's all the hype about?

Went to the loft early evening with my husband and young daughter. We were seated promptly no wait in the upstairs dining area. It's a beautiful place I just wasn't all that impressed with the food. I ordered stuffed tilapia with soulful mac and cheese and sauteed baby spinach. I have really... read more

The Loft is our go-to dinner place in Columbus. We always try all of the new places, and get excited about them, but we keep coming back to The Loft. It's consistently good in terms of food and always reliable in terms of service. I wish Columbus had a better restaurant scene. But if you want a place where you... More

Went here with 7 co-workers on a business trip. Broadway is littered with college town type bar and grill/pub restaurants. It is in the middle of a local college auxiliary campus and "old town" tourist area. It has a comedy club and open mike stage upstairs and a 3 star pub restaurant downstairs. We had everything from burgers to fish... More

We had no reservations, just wandered in, and they found a table for us and we had a great meal, chosen from an interesting menu.

Accompanied by my husband and another couple, we walked into us ladies receiving a single rose for Valentines Day. We were unfortunately thirty minutes late for our reservation. Even still seated at a beautiful window seat during dinner. The service was great. Our server Whitney was friendly and attentive. The food was amazing and at such a great price. Our... More

Pretty good food but the seating is not inviting and the noise prohibits most conversation. Service okay. Now that there are more restaurants opening downtown, no need to go back.

When it comes to restaurant in the downtown Columbus area, there isn't many options. The loft is pretty good spot, but always crowded because there aren't any other places to go. Drinks are decent and food is pretty good.

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
