We stopped in for an early pre-race dinner before the Columbus Marathon. The ravioli was sooo good. The linguini with scallops was equally as good. The waitress pointed us to some local spots to visit that were also wonderful. Highly recommend.

On the outskirts or a bit more than short north, Elevator is an upscale casual mirco-beer eatery. I found the beer decent, but I don't live and breathe micros. Tried 3 of the local on tap, all seemed a bit heavy to me. Even the lightest one. The food was mixed. We stopped after the game on the way back.... More

Good food and some award winning beers, but the real attraction is the venue. Sit in the back for dinner, then move to the bar for a beer. Drink in all the exquisite details from the floor to the ceiling. This place is a treasure.

Had a large group reservation - they had a table waiting for us and were very accommodating. Great beers, cocktails, and good food. Would go back again!

I LOVE this place. If I lived in Columbus, I'd be there A LOT. Beautiful, historic building with amazing details inside: intricate mosaic tile floor, carved wood bar crafted around 1897, detailed mouldings, stained glass, etc. It's like having great beer and food in an art museum. Quinoa salad, fish tacos, and burger were all excellent. My favorite beer there... More

For a brewery, the most boring set of taps I have ever seen. Next ... liking hoppy, hoppy, hoppy ... I was disappointed to see many beer descriptions with "but not too hoppy" "without the hop overload of many IPAs" "but not too hoppy" "mild hop levels" it is obvious these guys don't like hops! Starting with the Big Vic... More

I called ahead for a group of 11, they were very accommodating, even when we had to adjust the arrival time. Our wait staff had no trouble with individual bills. The food is good-I had the pulled pork sandwich. Even though it wasn't dry, it could be a bit "saucier", but that is me!

Good brews and even better food make this a swanky little spot. I love the old, art deco vibe going on. The beers are all local; mostly lagers and IPAs. Best pulled pork sandwich I've ever had! One of my favourite places in Columbus, highly recommend!

We came to the Elevator just a week ago and loved it so we had to come back again - 167 miles just for dinner! It was that good. Our waiter, David, was awesome and explained everything and made recommendations on beer and drinks! I had the Rock Filet - totally awesome!! The White Linen is an awesome drink -... More

Ordered Vegan Stir Fry for Lunch...Ugh...Should have ordered their soup. I should have looked at it before I left.
