We usually go there for our anniversary because we can always count on the food and service to be excellent. We each had the french onion soup and their incredibly good warm bread! Then hubby had the pork chop and I had the scallops special. Both were perfectly prepared and generous portions. We couldn't finish our meals but we wanted... More

My husband and I have now been to this restaurant twice in the last 60 days. The first time was excellent with great food and top of the line service. So...we took friends back Friday night to show off our newly found gem. What a disappointment!!! This time service was very slow with somewhat of an attitude, our drinks were... More

Ate at the Top for our anniversary dinner and it was fantastic. Would have rated it a 5 but was held back to a 4 because of this only issue: Our table was right next to the food ordering computer and the water refill sink. So as you can imagine, it was not a very intimate table. Very busy area... More

When you walk in this restaurant it's like you were transported back to the 50's. It will take awhile for your eyes to adjust to the dark entry hall leading into this retro gem. Once inside you will notice lots of dark leather booths and a large leather tufted bar. Our favorite place is the far side of the bar... More

I have been working in the Columbus area on contract for over four years so I have been to many steak houses. The Top Steak, for me, was disappointing, and I would never go back. First the good ... which was only satisfactory - the food: I had a bacon wrapped filet, twice baked potato and a Caesar salad. My... More

First off, let me say that if you're wanting steak that is top notch, The Top is the place for you. My husband and I came here for our first wedding anniversary dinner after being given many recommendations. Price was not necessarily a big deal for us as this was a special night to celebrate. When we arrived, we could... More

Have not been to The Top in quite the while, however nothing has changed. My husband and I both had surf & turf at $70/plate. Lobster tail was of good size and the fillet was cooked perfectly. The sides were just okay. The booth seating is very broken down. If you have back or leg problems you may want to... More

We don't mind paying high prices if the food is exceptional but we did not feel the food was worth the price. The atmosphere was very nice and the service was very good. My husband wanted to go here because a friend told him about it. Unfortunately, I don't eat steak or seafood but I don't have a problem having... More
