The Chef's lasagna gets better and better... And there's real desserts now. Then I tried the DUCK EGG ROLLS.... OH MY!! He never ceases to amaze. The standard fare is excellent as usual and then there are gems besides. Still the best service and drinks around.

we come here often and are never disappointed the staff are amazing especially Alecia and Megan behind the bar. Happy hour prices cannot be beat. The prix fix menu on Monday for 30 dollars was great with a sausage strudel and the amberjack fish with fresh fried jalapeños was amazing ..

first time at G. michaels, we had to change our 8:30 reservation to a later time which was no problem for G. m's . We sat in the middle of the dining room which had a nice ambience, ( it was loud at first but once most of the customers left the noise level became tolerable). We started with the... More

G. Michael's is a beautiful restaurant in a converted house in German Village. The service is excellent and the food was fantastic. Every taste of everything we ate was wonderful. We started with appetizers of sauteed Brussels sprouts with red grapes, walnuts and apple smoked bacon and broiled oysters with chorizo, peppers, cream and pico de gallo. Big portions and... More

G Michael's continues to amaze. Our dinners were superb and the best wait staff adds to the experience. If Chef prepares pork or duck you can't go wrong. The small plates are terrific. We go back over and over.

G Michael's is one of the favorites restaurants in Columbus. It has a patio that you can enjoy during the summer. The food is good and the ingredients fresh. The main problem that i have found with this restaurant is the strong pipe's smell inside and the entrees are dense, so you end up really full!.

We were meeting friends that we hadn't seen in some time. We had reservations, but we remembered that the other party loved eating at the four-top in the bar by the front window. (I will not tell you what table number to ask for because, we don't want more competition.) We asked if we could be seated there and we... More

We had a large group in the bar area for a holiday party. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful and the food was fabulous. Some of the gems were the sausage strudel, brussel sprouts (which I normally dislike), shrimp and grits, lasagna, and the filet. I highly recommend a happy hour visit. Appetizers are $7 and most drinks are... More

My husband and I took his parents to G. Michael's as an early Christmas present. We were blown away by the delicious food and overall ambiance. I was quite pleased that both TA and Opentable reviewers were so very correct in praising this establishment - another TA win!
