Was at a recent trade event at the Columbus Convention Center and walked a very short distance from the center and found Martini's. All I can say is WOW what a great experience. Great food and drink (Black Berry Manhattan was excellent). Very professional staff and great business atmosphere. Can't go wrong here.

The bar area in the front is lively and active with lots of socializing going on. If you want a quite atmosphere, the back of the restaurant is more quint and peaceful. The Lamb Papperdelle is to die for. A very unique, rich taste and flavorful noodles. Many dishes to chose from. They also have a fine wine selection and... More

I've been here twice now and enjoyed it very much each time. Good for business meetings or date night. Had the beef rib each time--very nice. Not overly expensive for nice dinner out before a movie, play, or other event downtown.

Service is top notch, food is delicious, and the ambiance of the restaurant is simply delightful. This restaurants only downfall is of course the fact that it is pricy. Do not expect to spend less than $100 for 2 people though, it's worth it.

This restaurant has rich flavors in food and drinks. My favorite combo is a bottle of Barolo, appetizer of beef carpaccio, and the lamb pappardelle for an entree. I would go here once a week if possible and I did while traveling to Columbus for work (14 weeks)

My fiance and I had our first dinner as engaged couple here. It is a very crowded restaurant in one of the streets of downtown. You need to either park your car in parking spots around the restaurant or valet it. We parked after 7pm on the ground parking for 8$ but the valet parking was $8 too. Valet was... More

Good cocktails! We went their for a friend's "adult" wedding shower - the kind where you do more than get wasted ;)! Good ambience for great conversations with girlfriends, great drinks, sat near the windows - very pleasant! Not many veggie options but still good for happy hour!

I chose this restaurant because of ranking and proximity to Hyatt Regency. I wanted a nice place to take my bride on our 43rd anniversary. We were not disappointed!! Our waiter, Michael, was great, and the food was excellent!! So very glad we celebrated here! Thanks to the staff that made our dinner so very memorable!

We visited during restaurant week. This allowed us to sample more dishes at a very reasonable price. The homemade mozzarella & the penny a la vodka were amazing. The pasta is homemade & each dish was presented beautifully. We had the chocolate bread pudding for desert. Highly recommended... Try it.

Try their signature pineapple vodka on the rocks while you wait for your table. The service is consistently outstanding and their willingness to accommodate special requests is wonderful. But the food is amazing! See if they still have 1/2 price wine on Mondays!
