Smith and Wollensky is an old school steakhouse, location pedal at Easton in Columbus. It's within walking distance of a number of adjacent hotels. We arrived on a Saturday evening and we were promptly greeted and seated. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Our steaks arrived relatively quickly. This was a good quality steak, and was cooked well. If you... More

Since Ruth's Chris in Columbus closed, we've been looking for a new restaurant to try when we visit Columbus, and we found it! The steaks are fabulous (try the ribeye!) and the service is superb. The wine list is top notch and very diverse. The desserts are creative and interesting. I highly recommend eating here.

I ate here today for the first time - I had lunch prior to shopping at Easton. I ordered a chicken sandwich with avocado and lettuce and herb aioli.......The wait was longer than it should have been. The sandwich had a little of a burned taste, but not too bad. For the price, I believe that the menu should have... More

We had lunch while shopping at Easton. My husband had a burger that was big, and I Had a steak sandwich. You could cut the beef in my sandwich with a fork, it was so tender. The waiter, James B, was super professional, efficient and friendly. We ate on the patio with white table clothes and, of course, cloth napkins.... More

My wife and I met our sons for lunch at Smith & Wollensky, we hadn't been there for a few months and always had a great time there.

This is a hard review to write. I had been dying to try this place since I had noticed it in Las Vegas. The service was excellent! The steak was good and prepared well. The "oscar" style was not like I had anywhere else. I asked what sauce was used and it was Hollandaise. I am use to being a... More

In our top 3 "rotation" for either laid back cocktails during lunch or dress-up dinner with friends S&W is the place to go for great chops, chilly and ample drinks and staff who treat you well, remember you and truly go the extra mile to impress and please.

Had a business dinner. The restaurant was fairly busy even for a week day evening. All of the team were very friendly and helpful. Food was good with a decent portion size. The restaurant is definitely worth a visit but can work out a little expensive for what you get, best saved for special occasions rather than just a normal... More
