Very impressive building and grounds at a private golf club. Staff provided attentive friendly service which contrasted with the food sent out from the kitchen. We were there for lunch and ordered mostly sandwiches with sides, salads and drinks. Plating presentation was reasonable however the...Prime Rib Panini had a distinctly grey/greasy appearance and seemed more likely to have been microwaved than cooked. It included melted cheese, indistintve hoseradish aioli with one thin tomato slice and overall was absent any satisfying flavors or aroma. A side of Cheddar Redskins did not taste fresh or appear to have been recently made. Salads were better received getting some good comments around the table however no one found their 'handheld' (sandwich) tasty enough to finish or worthy of taking home. The lunch menu has quite a few more offerings that perhaps are better prepared but we will be very hesitant to return in the near future.More

Five of us met at the restaurant . They required face mask to enter the restaurant. All staff were wearing face mask. The restaurant has both inside and outside dinning. We noticed that they were short staffing and servers were very busy covering more than...the normal amount of guest. But they did a great job. Three of us ordered the jumbo lump crab cake with mashed potatoes topped with remoulade sauce and poblano pepper relish and served with green beans. One person had the chicken marsala. A breast served in a creamy marsala sauce over cheddar smashed potatoes served with green beans. One of us had the fresh cut chops, 2 grilled pork chops tapped with bourbon apple compote, baked potato and green beans. Before our meals arrived we ordered 2 of their pretzel frites "starters" each had had 12 pretzels served with beer cheese and honey mustard. The soft pretzels and sauces were very good. All of our meals were very delicious. Our server did a very good job keeping our drinks filled and checking on how we were doing. We seen him going between several outside patio tables looking over the golf corse along with inside tables. A check of the restrooms found them in the clubs locker rooms. Both men's and ladles were very clean, well stocked and well maintained. Reservations are normally required, they have adequate parking and handicap parking. The club house also has 2 nice bars, 1 inside and 1 outside on the patio. NOTE: There is an 18% added on to each bill for the servers. Will be returning in the future.More

We had lunch they had only been open for about 45 minutes and were not very busy. I ordered the lobster bisk for an appetizer and the chicken marsala in a cream sauce with mushrooms over mashed potatoes with green beans. My wife ordered the...half rack of BBQ ribs, Marconi and cheese. Both of our choices were delicious. Our server was great checking on us often and kept our beverages refilled. The view from the restaurant is great overlooking the golf course. Since it was cold outside they had a nice fire in their fireplace. All staff personnel were wearing face mask and was very friendly. There were signs on the entrance doors stating face mask required. The restaurant was very clean as was the restrooms. Would definitely recommend the Cimi bisto restaurant.More

The outdoor atmosphere was great, some seats under cover others in the open, overlooking the beautiful golf course. It felt like a nice safe place to be dining during the pandemic. We all enjoyed the food and the waitress was attentive.

My family and I were in Columbus visiting the University and stopped here for a Sunday brunch. We all ordered something different. My son had Cicken and Waffles and I ordered the Crab Eggs benedict. Both items were delicious. My wife and daughters had an...omelet hash browns and french toast. We all enjoyed our brunch. Great view of the golf course. We would eat here again.More

We stopped in the restaurant for a late lunch. The Cimi Bistro sets on a golf course with a great view. The dinning area is small but adaquate. They also have other areas that can be reserved for parties and other occasions. The staff were...very professional, friendly and provided great service. The selection of food is limited but adaquate. I ordered a Lobster Bisque which was delicious one of the best that I have had. I also ordered the fish which was OK but not as good as I had expected. The portion size was small did not have as good of taste as expected. I ordered a dessert which was very good. The previous times I had a meal at the Cimi's Bistro the food seemed much better. But I would still recommend the restaurant. This may have been an off day.More

Waitress was slow in taking food orders and refilling drinks. Ordered a steak which came out undercooked, fries were seasoned with way to much salt and I asked the waitress not to put a specific side on my plate and she did anyhow.

Very nice dinner out for families, couples or solo. The menu selections are very creative and change constantly. Always something new for the next visit. Sit on the patio for a wonderfully relaxing evening.

The group I work with holds an annual luncheon at cimi’s. We’ve always been enjoyed the food, the space, and the service. This year, they didn’t offer as many entree choices for our large group. Because of this, I opted for a burger and it...was way over cooked. The service was still good and we like their large group room. I know I’m not the only one who felt like the food was not as good as in years past because others mentioned trying somewhere new next year. Maybe it was just an off day though.More

This is one of my favorite places in the summer to go for dinner. Great patio with occasional live music (that is not too loud) in an upscale golf course setting. Exceptional summer cocktail menu. Our family held several Christmas parties at Cimi’s. The dining...room is always beautifully decorated for Christmas and the wait staff is very friendly. The food use to be top notch however the last 4-5 times that I had dined at Cimi’s the food was not the quality that I had been use to and my family and I had expressed that everything including salmon was extremely salty. It is for this reason I had chosen another restaurant for my birthday dinner this year.More

Sat outside on the patio. Beautiful atmosphere on the patio. Live music....very nice. Food however was average as well as the service. Somehow they need to take it to the next level. Don’t mind the expense if the quality comes with it. I hear negatives...from friends. Be careful Cimi’s, you’re developing a reputation !More

Our service has always been excellent and the food top notch for the area. The only reason this isn't 5 Star review is the pricing is not reasonable.

I only made reservation once during what I thought would be a busy time, they were not needed. All other times we went without reservations.
