We considered this an upscale restaurant to try on a weeknight. The food was well seasoned and tasty. The service was very good. The decor was not as impressive as I had imagined from drivingby.More

This restaurant is one of the newer popular farm-to-table options. The food is typically outstanding and one of the best options in the columbus area. Be wary of a wait as it is quite popular.More

Great spot for a casual lunch or dinner, with seriously fresh, local food! Service is consistently friendly and generally attentive, without being overbearing. Similar to a pub atmosphere, with a few large screens generally showing sports --- but definitely not a "sports bar".
