We have been here half a dozen times and it is always great. It seems as if they have put special effort into making it even better. Located right across the street from the Columbus Convention Center, and very close to Nationwude arena, hotels and other hot spots in the Short North area, the bar is always lively, and the...

I was staying at the Hyatt across the street and they recommended Martini. WOW, thanks for doing that. I am not a meat eater but they had plenty on the menu to satisfy my tastes while the others in our group chomped down on what they said were amazing meat items. I loved the Beet Salad. The place was crowded,... More

Had dinner on Saturday (party of 6). We enjoyed cocktails at the very crowded bar while waiting for a table. Were seated upstairs in a separate room 20 minutes after our reservation time. Not the best location especially when there were three large parties (10-18) celebrating birthdays at long tables in the room. The service suffered- too long for the... More

Martini was an experience. When going to a nice restaurant, you expect great service, but for how busy this establishment was, our server made us feel like we were the only people in the restaurant. We made reservations on a Saturday night and showed up 10 minutes prior to the seating time. There was a crowd outside the door waiting... More

I have eaten here a number of times while in town for a convention. It is around the corner from the Hyatt and the Convention Center. Even with a large group I have always had a good experience even when it was very crowded. Yesterday, our son and daughter-in-law were treating my wife for her birthday and I suggested Martini....

This restaurant has become an absolute MUST for ANY trip to Columbus for my wife and me. The service is always top notch. When we arrived, our server had been busy with another table but the manager immediately greeted our table and placed our drink orders. The meals were absolutely perfect as usual. As I stated before - ANY time... More

We celebrated my husband's birthday at Martini Modern Italian. Reservations are a must for a weekend. In my reservation, I said it was for my husband's birthday. They hostess and waiters all wished him a Happy Birthday and they did not charge us for dessert. This was a very nice touch. The restaurant has a very lively atmosphere. It is... More
