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

We've always enjoyed the food, the service, and yes - the atmosphere - at The Top. We hadn't been for a while, and decided to make a reservation on Tuesday for a table on Friday evening. The fact that there were only two reservation times speak loudly of its continuing popularity. We arrived, were seated, and attended to in a... More

The charm is in the original 50's/60's decor and atmosphere. The atmosphere is dark, kitschy and like a set of Mad Men. Tables are very close together. Though I am not generally a fan of steakhouses as I believe that they are ridiculously and unnecessarily overpriced, and The Top Steakhouse is no exception to this general rule, this is a... More

I've been to the Top on as consistently as anyone can who lives in Clevelabd. When friends ask me where's your favorite Cleveland steakhouse I let them know it's in Bexley! Great bartenders, top-notch wine list and steaks that make it worth the drive! The Top. #1 in Columbus and in my heart and in Ohio!

My wife and I met my sister and her husband for dinner here on a Thursday night. I have to say that comments by others about how dark it is in this restaurant is spot on. Very hard to read anything at the tables. Also, for a party of four, the tables are a little on the small side and... More

Food, service, and atmosphere are exceptional and consistent. We've been coming to Columbus and to the Top from out of town for many years and have never been disappointed. The current owners are wonderful and have always been very professional and attentive. We've been to many good Columbus restaurants as well as several upscale restaurants throughout several major cities in... More

Everything I've had is of exceptional quality. The meats and seafood is always terrific and I love the sides. Old fashioned place with a classic menu and service that is always just right.
