Columbus Convention Center Cheerleading Competition Meal

We were at the Columbus Convention Center this weekend for a cheerleading competition. My good friend and I both appreciate good drinks and good food. We convinced our teenage daughters to go here instead of the Japanese Steak House down the street. We loved it, but the girls weren't a fan. We... read more

If you are staying by the convention center this restaurant is in the neighborhood and well worth the walk. The butternut squash tortellini is top notch as is the beet salad. I was there this week for a work dinner and found the salmon special to be very flavorful with tomatoes, peas and gnocchi, although the gnocchi was a little... More

First time eating here - and I must say it was throughoughly enjoyable. They were jam packed because the weekend we were there was part of the NCAA Tourney, but the staff could not have been better. It was an anniversary meal for my wife and I and they were surprisingly accommodating to some special requests on such a busy... More

We ate here on our last trip to High Street and I had to return for the Lamb Pappardelle. We brought another couple with us and they enjoyed the restaurant as much as we did the first time. We had an excellent waiter and the entire staff was friendly and efficient. The wine choices were excellent as well as the... More

As the name implies, this definitely isn't Olive Garden (no offense)! Excellent atmosphere. Ice cold, frosty Per on I beer on tap. The food was incredible. Full menu, with prices is online. No sticker shock here! Thank you for the incredible hospitality, and equally incredible food!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Columbus. The food is absolutely amazing. Specifically, I love the butternut squash tortiloni, beet salad, and filet. The atmosphere is also really upscale and modern. Always impressed!

Restaurant has a great buzz and nice atmosphere. We were a party of 8 with a reservation but our table wasn't ready so the managers offered us complimentary appetizers. This was a very nice offer which came with many apologies. Food was awesome, everything we had was fresh and tasty. The lamb pasta was a standout along with the fresh... More

Eaten here many times over the years and it is always good. We waited a while for a server so I checked with the hostess. She apologized profusely and we had two servers approach our table. They offered a complimentary appetizer and during dinner the manager insisted on treating us to dessert. They more than made up for the delay.... More

Really nice place in downtown Columbus near the Convention Center. Drinks are pricey but very good. Food was well presented and excellent. We had the tuna and the scallops with the calamari as an appetizer. Nice atmosphere, attentive servers!
