great food, nice selections and the presentations were very nice. Waiter slowed down when we did not buy the bottle of wine and went to glass only. Would go again.

Good food, neat place to have in downtown area. Waiter hit a homerun out of the box until we didn't buy the expensive bottle of wine he recommended. Then, service was slow and we had to ask for water refills more than once. We also had to ask for bread basket. The food was fantastic...good taste, nicely presented.

Went on a weekend night with friends for dinner. Food was okay, but not great. I had the lamb pappardelle, which sounded great on the menu, but was bland. Seemed like the waiter wanted to get us out of there to seat another table. It was so noisy we could barely hear each other. Took a very long time to... More

We visit this jewel each year with great anticipation. This year we had 7 guests, 5 of which ordered the butternut squash tortellini. It is among the best dishes I have ever had on this earth. Even the salads are unique and quite delectable. I simply couldn't say enough wonderful things about the food, the staff, the drinks, the atmosphere!

Food was excellent, drinks were awesome. My husband and I both enjoyed the atmosphere. They even accommodated our request for a nice table to celebrate our anniversary.

Located in the comercial heart of Columbus, offers a dedicated/quick/polite service. And offers the most delicious food and wine (although its a small wine menu). Mo Wash THE great waiter!

I decided that for our anniversary my wife and I would give this place a try. After reading all the reviews I was pretty confident that we would enjoy it and we certainly did! The food was outstanding! It was a little on the high side for cost but I feel like it was well worth it. I reserved a... More

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.
