Best Filet

The filet served may have been the best I've ever eaten. Perfectly charred on the outside and cooked on the inside. The thought of this filet just makes my mouth water. The price wasn't cheap but well worth the money.

Took my wife for our anniversary. The menu on the website did not match with this location. When I asked the server, she stated that each location has a different menu. I was hoping for either the Swordfish or the Mahi Mahi that the website mentioned. They only had a Salmon and a Trout. We both opted for the Filet... More

Enjoyed lunch at this Easton location today. Nice decor, quickly seated and greeted. Nice, concise, small menu (I prefer fewer choices that are well executed) We were presented with a daily lunch specials menu, the wine/drink list and the regular menu. We started with the grilled artichoke appetizer ($12), beautiful presentation and delicious, server brought over fresh rolled moist napkins... More

Our waitress Chelsea was outstanding. Very knowledgable and attentive. Made suggestions and knew how each dish including the features are prepared. She also had the fine dining niceties down pat. appropriately replaced silverware, did... More

This was our 2nd visit to this location since it has opened. Our first dinner when we ate here about a month or so ago was also disappointing, we thought we would give it a second chance tonight, but sadly this trip also had its share of problems. This location seems to have trouble sending out cooked, hot food especially... More

We were in the Easton area and wanted to have dinner so we stopped at the J. Alexander’s on 400 Stelzer Road. We did not have a reservation but it was a Tuesday night and we didn’t have to wait. The restaurant was very modern and the area inside was wide open like a big cafeteria. It was a little... More

This restaurant is a long-time favorite in the Columbus area. They currently have two sites - one in the Easton area and the other in Worthington. I am yet to visit the newer location in Easton area. The wait staff is always cheerful and attentive. I would say 4 out of 5 meals have been quite good. Their wine list... More

Walking in was a bit busy- a Friday night. No reservations and was told it would be awhile. I had my heart set on dining there so I waited, my date was late, so the wait was no big deal. When he arrived, I had a table and wine. Ordered the Pork Tenderloin-delicious! Very polite and courteous staff. Water tasted... More

We visited the new location in Columbus at 4000 Stelzer Road at Easton Gateway. The restaurant is more modern with an open floor plan. You can walk in door and pretty much see everything (I don't normally like this for a high end nicer restaurant but it seems the way things are going) so this makes things a little noisier... More

I took my former boss here for dinner to celebrate her retirement. It was a weekday evening, so they were not crowded. It was my first time but my former boss had been here several times before in that it is close to her home. As I reviewed the menu, I noticed that the prices were on the higher side... More
