Good atmosphere, good food, good drinks and good music. This is one of my favorites. The Loft never disappoints and is a go to restaurant for lunch or dinner. Stay late for comedy night on Thursdays or great live music on most other nights.

Dinner was very tasty and well priced for what you get. The deserts are as good as you can get. Nice atmosphere in walking distance to downtown activities.

Very friendly staff and the food is great! Their chicken is not dried out like most places but very juicy. Spacious and the jazz is excellent. I'd definitely recommend.The only thing is the food is NOT cheap! The food is mid range but the prices reflect those of fine dining.

The Loft is a great restaurant with delicious food. If you go in the spring try to sit outside and you can people watch. The unstuffed chicken is wonderful and the fish special is always a winner. You should definitely try the mac n cheese.

This place was just absolutely amazing, the service, atmosphere, and the food. When we first got in we were seated immediately and the server came right over to get our drink order. That came in fast and then we got some of their homemade potato chips, which were amazing. I ordered the hamburger steak poutine and it was so good!!!... More

I usually go to the loft once a month. The buffalo chicken dip is a great appetizer and the chicken with couscous. Great place to have a calm dinner on the bottom floor and then great for drinks and live music on the top floor.

It's got above-par food, but service is slow, and management makes no effort to staff sufficiently to support the crowds. My biggest criticism is that they do not offer reservations, yet they will often have a line out the door, so the only way I can eat here for dinner is if I am willing to wait for an hour... More

The food was great, the service was great and so were the drinks. We had an amazing time. We met nice people and the ambiance was perfect for a Friday evening.

The Loft is in an area of shops, bars, and restaurants. We thought we'd get there 30-45 minutes early, check out some of the nearby shops, maybe have a drink at the bar. Instead, we sat in stop-and-go traffic, everyone crawling along and looking for a parking place. We got to the restaurant right on time for our reservation. The... More

The Loft is a 2 level restaurant with a live music venue upstairs. Amazing food, friendly service, and delicious drinks mixed with an atmosphere you won't find anywhere else at the hub of Uptown Columbus! The Loft is a Columbus Uptown favorite, a family run business rooted in local history since 1992, combining food, fun, and music in a scrumptious and unique way. It has always been our family's goal to share with our patron's quality and value in a casual atmosphere. In short, if you love extraordinary food, the best in live entertainment plus a warm and welcoming service staff, come spend the evening with us!
