Let me start by saying that we had previously had meals at Martini that were ok. It was a Tuesday night and we made last minute reservations We arrived approx ten minutes early for our reservation. The incredibly rude teenage hostess told us our table would be ready at our reservation time. We waited. And continued to wait. And continued... More

Enjoyed dinner here Saturday night and it was everything the reviews said it was. We chose to eat in the bar at some high tables and watch the passerbys. Inside it is cozy and the bar was fun. It got crowded as the night went on. My colleague and I had the salmon special. Bread was warm and came with... More

This was a business dinner. We had eight (8) for dinner which made for a good cross section of the menu. I quizzed everyone regarding their selection, from the salad to the main to dessert! The fish was fresh, but more important, it was properly prepared. The Veal Martini, a house speciality, lived up to that billing. The steaks were... More

In Columbus for a conference we ate here several times, once with a large group ( apologies to those nearby seeking an intimate dining experience!), and one just three of us. Food was delicious, rich in flavour and beautifully presented. Excellent wine list and friendly service.

The best thing at Martini is their mixed drinks.Their food is quite good too. The place is noisy but has a great vibe.

We enjoyed the meal. Service was great, as was the food. The wine list was good. The level of noise was a bit high for conversation

My husband and I went to Martini Modern Italian on a Saturday night. We were seated in the back next to two large parties of women. They were so loud - imagine the cackle laugh x about 30-40 women. We had a difficult time carrying on a conversation or hearing our waitress until they received their food and finally left.... More

We have been to Martini's many times with friends, family, as a couple, etc. and each time it has been absolutely fantastic. Great service, and we have yet to find one thing on the menu we haven't liked. All of the menu options are 'made to order' meaning that you can change any ingredient or any other aspect of the...

Excellent chilled martinis. Beet salad was quite good and bread was served with dipping sauces. Wife had beef carpaccio which we really enjoyed. I had fettuccine with clams. Pastas was made there and the broth was excellent We had a limoncello strawberry dessert which we shared and thought quite tasty. Would definitely recommend this especially if going to theatre downtown... More
