Celebrated my birthday with a close friend and we visited one of my FAVORITE places in Columbus. This place and staff never fails to impress. The Top is not fancy, its OLD SCHOOL. It doesn't look like it been updated in 50 years and I like that. You would fully expect Sammy or Frank or Dean to stroll out of... More

My wife and I enjoyed the Top Restaurant for the first time last week. We had a reservation and were seated right away. This restaurant is a throwback to the 40's and 50's. I kept looking for Dean Martin! The waiter was outstanding and our steaks were cooked EXACTLY how we ordered. The house salad is good and not heavy.... More

We tried this recently for the first time. Based on what we'd heard, we expected quite a bit more. It wasn't bad, but we won't rush back for another visit, there are so many better options in town. The steak isn't great quality and the service wasn't very attentive, considering what you'd expect from a steakhouse. Same for the wine... More

And server less than friendly. We felt written off right away. We will not come here again. The place is dark to hide the decor.

This place is a 60's throwback and very dark,! However a dood deal if you know what to get. The night owl and the hamburger are excellent, and under 20$ with two sides. We often split the burger and salad and giant baked potatoe. Soo good! Also the night owl is a good size filet, with garlic bread and 2... More

Honestly, if I had known this restaurant was in Bexley, I probably wouldn't have booked it, having never been there before. I'm so glad we went. We've been to all the other steak houses in Cbus, and they're all pretty similar. The Top is very different! It's like walking back in time to the 1950's. There's a piano as you... More

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
