Very nice place and i would certainly eat at Martini Modern Italian again. The only complaint, it is very loud, hard to carry on a conversation.

We were in Columbus to see Wicked at the Ohio Theatre (which was awesome) and had dinner at Martini since it was so close to our hotel. The food and service were fantastic. The bread served at the beginning of the meal came with the freshest pesto I've ever had. We had the beet salad, which was also fresh from... More

This is Cameron Mitchell's Italian restaurant. The food is really good, and the atmosphere is lively and upbeat. Nice, modern decor. Friendly, well qualified staff. There is valet parking, or you can often get a spot in the North Market lot just down the side street.

I went to this restaurant with an Italian, who said it was very good. I thought it was excellent, and definitely recommend it. I had great matching wine too. I rate it excellent.

Our department scheduled a dinner here after an all day meeting. We were all tired, but the servers took our orders and got drinks pretty quickly to us, even though the restaurant was very crowded. Our group shared some great appetizers, and I selected a steak for my meal. It was cooked perfectly (I am a medium-well) and it practically... More

My coworker and I visited this restaurant when we were in town from Milwaukee and Chicago, respectively. Really nice, classy environment and great decor. Food was excellent, as was the house-infused pineapple vodka. Service was great, as well. I'd definitely recommend.

Absolutely wonderful Italian cuisine! My friends and I were headed to a pub in the Short North and were told the restaurant was OUT OF FOOD! We never heard of such a thing but evidently a local convention wiped them out. Anyway, my friends and I decided to walk up to High Street in search of a place to have... More

Martini acts like an excellent restaurant, with an ambitious menu and pretensions of Italian authenticity. It is neither of those; it is instead, just another run of the mill Italo-American restaurant. It isn't bad, but it is neither authentic nor excellent. The "Milanese" style cutlet would be unrecognizable as such in any Italian province; the signature Negroni made at Martini... More

We had a great experience at Martini. We started with Calamari and Lobster Risotto. Both delicious. I had Ahi Tuna for entree- Perfect! Great Italian wine selection. Finished with sorbet and 30 year Tawny Port. Our female server was so knowledgeable of the menu and steered us to excellent recommendations.

The food at martini was great! It was restaurant week and I had some of their beef short ribs. Very tender and flavorful! Service was great as well, random staff walked around and picked up our plates, refilled our glasses, and our food was timed well.

Thank sunnyt201
