Good food, small portions, pricey

Great atmosphere. Limited menu with high prices and small portions. Enjoyed my meal, but can't say that I would go back

Everything about this place is first rate. From the hostess reception through the dessert everything was great. The seating is comfortable and not cramped. Even though the place was packed the service was prompt, efficient, and friendly. There are a wide variety of menu selections and a good wine list. They even prepared a special pasta dish that was not... More

We were in town for one night and had already had a horrible hotel room finding afternoon due to a agri convention in town that day. We did finally find a nice downtown room but given how busy everything was we started to worry we wouldn't find a table at a great restaurant. We did the open table thing and... More

In town for a church convention, we were dressed, well, darned casually and we had no reservation. But we were treated like a quartet of royalty. Our waitress explained the possibilities, waited patiently as we enjoyed drinks before ordering and then brought out our choices at a leisurely pace. We chose the butternut squash ravioli to be shared at the... More

Date night and we went to Martini'so and started in the bar and enjoyed the happy hour immensely. Great discounts and drink specials. After a couple of appetizers we should have shared a meal when we moved to the dining room. Enjoyed a great salad and dinner. Very nice place for a romantic date and all the food looked amazing!

Had dinner at Martini Modern Italian and it was awesome. I'm not a big martini drinker, but I had to have one... I mean after all, the place is called Martini. Ha. So the Black Cherry Martini was ordered. Whoa... it was strong and tasty. Dinner was fantastic. Reservations are highly recommended though. It's a great place to go with... More

I have eaten dinner here and also attended a rehearsal dinner. The restaurant is nicely appointed in a contemporary style. The food is amazing and the service is well done. For my personal taste, I prefer a quieter place. However, this place is trendy and "happenin'". Nothing wrong with that. The staff for the rehearsal dinner ( about 75 people... More

We were in town during a very busy weekend in Columbus and were worried about finding a nice restaurant that had a fair share of vegetarian options. Luckily, we were able to get a table at Martini Modern Italian. The decor is very inviting and the service was top notch. Everyone was pleased with their food--vegetarians and carnivores alike....as well... More

Once again, this restaurant FAR exceeded our expectations. The food was PERFECT as usual and the service was excellent and perfectly paced! The staff was able to pick up fresh flowers from across the street to have waiting for my wife in celebration of our anniversary! Just absolutely AWESOME!
