Excellent choice for dinner!

This is more second time here and enjoyed both times. Food is excellent, service is excellent and decor is nice. I do have to comment on the noise level, but you're going to have that with a restaurant full of people! I will return.

With seemingly endless options for dining around Columbus, especially the Polaris area which seems to lack for nothing, Polaris Grill can sometimes get lost in the shuffle. In fact, it had been several years since I visited the location-a transgression I will not be repeating! Visited for lunch with co-workers. Very elegant, contemporary decor that doesn't get in the way.... More

My most recent trip was in December but I spend a lot of time in Columbus Oh because of work and family and every trip (once a month) requires a trip to Polaris Grill. I love the ambiance in the winter, it is cozy with a fireplace; in summer the patio is beautiful, private. The service is always attentive and... More

My company had reserved the banquet room which is located right behind the reservation desk for the company's holiday party. The bad part was over 75% of those who accepted the invitation did not show up. The good part was the food! Yes it was that good. Even though it was served buffet style, it was still delicious and so... More

Our group of 6 went for brunch to celebrate an anniversary. The food and service we both very good. We also enjoyed a few cocktails from the bar. The Benedict's were awesome, especially the Louisiana shrimp. They also have a good selection of Bloody Mary's to choose from. Overall a great experience.

Stopped in for lunch just before 1p and the Grill was very busy with the lunch crowd. It was a super weather day as some patrons opted to eat outside. We stayed inside and all of us (4) opted for the large 55 salad with a added meat entree to it. All of us enjoyed our salads and had wonderful... More

Amazing food and always consistently good service. The pork chops and house salad are my favorite. Also, the General Manager is awesome and a sweetheart

We chose this restaurant to dine with two other couples because we always liked the atmosphere as well as the food. We made reservations two weeks in advance since it was going to be a Friday evening. When we got there they seated us in the dining room to the left which I've only eaten in with large groups or...
