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!

it really is very pretty. We sat at the bar for a light dinner as it was late. Ordered calamari and bruschetta. Thought they wouldn't be too heavy. The calamari was good, crispy and flavorful. The bruschetta was not what I thought it would be. It was served on a focchia with sundried tomatoes and prosciutto. I was hoping for... More

Simply put, one of the best meals ever! Sure, you can get great food, wine or service other places but for all three to be nothing short of spectacular at the same place? Amazing! We came on a Friday night while visiting Columbus from the East Coast and didn't realize what a gem we had stumbled upon. We had a... More

We hadn't been to Martinis for several years and were much looking forward to our return. Sadly, we were disappointed in the atmosphere, service and food. We arrived promptly for our reservation, and even though the front of the restaurant was not full, they showed us to the far back room, with very little ambiance. Although they advertised happy hour... More
