Evening and meal began quite nicely, great attentive service but not hovering, really good food. But, the evening and meal ended with it circling the drain, our waiter disappeared, our meal came out overdone and cool not hot. Ick! Entire restaurant caters to regulars and treats visitors as an annoyance. Very expensive also for this kind of poor service, should... More

One of the best steakhouses in town. And that is saying something in Columbus, where there are several outstanding establishments. I've been here almost a dozen times, and have been really disappointed only once. The menu is pricy (expect to spend close to $300 for a couple with wine and appetizers) but well worth it. My favorites are the New... More

I visited there with a group of dinner associates. It's exactly what you would expect from a high end steak house. Good drink list and atmosphere and wait staff are great. The food is ok but if you are paying upwards of $50 for a steak it should be spectacular, ours was not.

We normally don't dine at the high end restaurants, but received a $150 gift card to S&W. Location S&W is located at Easton near Nordstroms. It is a great location and they have valet parking. We prefer to park in a garage or surface lot since you have to drive through a lot of Easton to get to S&W. This... More

They actually got a great outside corner, which is good for big group drinks gathering. The drink that they serve is awesome, I definitely had a few of them. The bar food though wasn't of any surprise.. wasn't bad, but it wasn't something you'll remember either. Nonetheless this is a good get together place.

My Mom, sister and I had lunch here on our last day of shopping at Easton. We ordered appetizers, salads and two cocktails. The bill was $170. The crab stuffed shrimp were tough and the salads were huge but not anything special. Our server was the highlight of the experience, he was very attentive and engaging. We were seated in... More

Title of the review says all. I have spent 13 weeks traveling to Columbus and have been to all the so called Prime steakhouses in the city. The only one that deserved my 5 stars was S&W. Went there for lunch and since it was not too busy I sat at the bar and got an amazing bartender. I had... More

This was my second visit. First visit service was amazing. Waitress was so interactive and even brought my child a free dessert since we were celebrating a special occasion. I use the term free loosely since their meals are so overpriced we likely paid for the 'free dessert' threefold anyhow. This time around the waiter scoffed when we said we... More
