Wonderful Evening

Our group of 5 couples, dear friends for years, dined together on the evening of Dec. 30. Since it is so difficult to find a date when we can all be together, it was a very special night and great way to end 2015. The Top staff was efficient, classy, professional, and accommodating.

I try not to be completely negative in my review of a very poor meal and so I will say that there was a fantastic piano player there. He played a lot of 40's tunes and even some Dave Brubeck. That is about where it ends with respect to the adulation. We arrived a little early for our 700 reservation... More

Love the food here. Hubby had filet. It was like cutting butter. I had the pork chops and they were so good. Big and juicy. So plentiful that I enjoyed the other one the next day. Baked potato had lots,of good sea salt rubbed on the outside. Everything was wonderful. Do make reservations. We showed up on a Monday night... More

The Top has a beautiful 1950's motif and instantly makes you feel as if you are in a James Bond movie. The quality of the food is always first class!

I felt like I went back to the 1950s or 1960s when I walked in here. Super dark, old steakhouse feel. Lounge singer at the piano. It was a wonderful experience. Our entire party had steaks and they were all delicious, cooked to perfection. The service was first rate. I will go back here on a future visit to Columbus,... More

Went with a group of 12 for leisurely dinner. My husband got bone in ribeye and I ordered the surf and turf. Our steaks were perfectly cooked. The lobster was not greasy. I think it was the best lobster I have ever eaten.

My husband and I and another couple recently had a birthday dinner celebration at The Top. We made reservation (highly recommend) We arrived early and went to the bar for a drink. The Top is exactly as I remembered from back in the early 80's. I ordered a Cosmopolitan and it was crafted to perfection. Two people ordered Dirty Martini's... More
