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

In Columbus for a trade show at the conference center across the street. Enjoyed nuveau apps and drinks in the bar while waiting our table for a business dinner for 7. Great service, excellent food and generous drinks were served as happy hour was wrapping up. Dinner included perfectly cooked steaks, pan seared scallops and a small but impressive wine... More

We had a business meal here. The style is modern, the food is incredible and the service is top notch. Staff knew the menu and helped everyone find something for their taste. They timed the meal perfectly allowing time for good conversation and everyone to have a good time. This is a fantastic place to eat.

This restaurant is very close to the convention center, convenient for business travel. We changed our reservation count several times, and they were very nice about it. We ended up with 11 at the last minute, and they made it work. Appetizers were tasty and fresh. The beet salad was very good. They do the first plate, second plate traditional... More

The only reason this restaurant is getting 2 stars is for the outstanding customer service and the awesome drinks. The martini's and pine fin are made perfectly. The food however was so disappointing and lacked taste. The customer service was excellent, you are greeted with a smile and for the most part everyone is very attentive. The food, we started...

After days of eating at the convention center, martini was an absolute treat for our final meal of our visit to Columbus. Reservations online were exceptionally easy to get even though it was a completely packed weekend with a huge competition at the convention center. Upon arrival, the Decor and ambience of the restaurant was inviting from the very first... More

A cheerleading competition brought us to the area. We had been before for the same event, but had never had the opportunity to partake of this restaurant. I called to reserve ahead and spoke to Gabrielle, who was lovely. Unfortunately, for the restaurant, I had to keep calling to add to our reservation. The restaurant and all to whom we... More

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 both had the pineapple infused vodka. Excellent. I...
