Five of us had dinner on a Saturday evening. The restaurant is located in a quaint area of Columbus, called Worthington, on High Street. We shared 2 appetizers, had soup and entrees. I had the butter nut squash soup that was very good along with the pumpkin ravioli, which was also very good. Another 2 people had the seared scallops... More

Phase dinner withwife'sfamily at this very highly regarded restaurant a week ago. The server's mantra was "no problem" - except that almost everything she did was wrong! Messed up orders, dinners delivered to the wrong people, delivered tepid, wine not arriving until long after the meal was served, plates cleared before the diner was even finished. A horror show, accompanied... More

We eat here often and it never disappoints. We prefer eating in the bar on old marble tables and great food. The waffle here is amazing, not allowed on my diet now. So I either get the special breakfast or something healthy. Food is great, both the sausage and bacon are awesome. Doesn't disappoint ever.

Visited New Year's Eve with a party of 6. We had a 7 o'clock reservation, and were finally seated around 7:45. From thereon it was pretty much a trainwreck. We waited 15+ minutes for cocktails, bread service was stale, hot soups ordered (3) were cold - sent back, and 3 entrees (scallops) were barely warm - sent back. After the... More

Our group wanted a nice decorated restaurant with great food and service for our annual Holiday get together. We decided on the Worthington Inn and reserved a table for Tuesday, December 8th night at 7. What a mistake. We received our drinks, ordered our dinners, and received bread, promptly at 7. We did not see our waitress again until 8:30... More

For the second year in a row, we booked our annual office dinner at Worthington Inn. The previous year was fine, but this year I received a call that they had double booked the area where we held the pre-dinner reception before sitting down to dinner. We agreed o move our dining time later to accommodate the restaurant. Then, when... More

Any time that I have visited this restaurant, I have been greetied with great food and great service. There is a great menu with a large selection of dishes, along with a kid menu! The building is beautiful, clean, and holds a lot of history. It is a more formal restaurant, so I would recommend wearing nice clothing. This restaurant... More

I have been to the Worthington Inn a few times, years ago, and was impressed with the food, the setting, the staff. This time, although the staff was friendly, I was not at all impressed with the food. I also had to climb steep steps to get to the party room where the brunch was being held. Since I have... More

I have never encountered anything like this ever. I wanted to do something nicer than carry-out for my family, so I ordered my wife, toddler son, daughter and myself a wonderful spread from the Worthington Inn website using the "Skip the Table" option.
