I visited 89 Fish and Grill last weekend before a trip to hear the Columbus Symphony. It was a great beginning to a wonderful evening. I enjoyed the menu items, the seating was prompt (I had a reservation) and the waiter was very friendly and attentive.

Came to Columbus for a business trip and decided to come to 89 F&G based on reviews and I'm glad I did.

Crab cakes were delicious! Also, loved that they had complimentary valet parking...coming from Chicago this was a nice surprise!

My wife and I have traveled the country and abroad and have experienced many different qualities of food and service. The 89 Fish & Grill was excellent. If you are an uptight person this won't be for you. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed and the staff is friendly. We both had 89 salads, and their signature salmon dish. Everything was prepared well, served piping hot, and timely. Complimentary valet service is a no brainer being down town and was great. We will be back and will recommend to our friends and family.

Located in what appears to be a restored brick warehouse, we again had very good service but a mixed experience with the food.

We arrived near the end of happy hour but had time to sample their $5 (usually $10) 'Native Savior hand crafted cocktail. At $5 the price was fair, and the flavors of this honey-accented Vodka drink was truly something special (surprisingly similar to a honey-based happy hour drink found at the Beekeeper in Oak Harbor, Ohio (that establishment usually open only weekends).

The oyster slider was perfect - except the happy hour menu advertised "$4 Fried Oyster sliderS - that's with an s at the end - but our order had only one of the tasty treats on a very fresh bun. The fresh swordfish was cooked perfectly to order (med-rare, which is often not an option 'allowed' in many northern establishments for swordfish), nicely sized and very fresh mashed potatoes with excellent flavor.

Dessert was also good, with one of our party receiving a huge slice of perfectly flavored apple-sorghum stake cake, but another disappointed by the small size and a bit too cool (right from the refrigerator) rich vanilla-caramel custard with an exceptionally flavorful hint of coffee.

Four rather than 5 rating due to some items' small portion size, and prices in the $20-$30+ range (salad not included) that are just barely worth it for an above average quality dining experience.

I recently wrote the review "good food and atmosphere" posted on 1-25-14. Near the end of my review, I meant to write "the bartender definitely DID NOT scimp on the liquor in the drinks". Instead it came out erroneously as "the bartender definitely scimp on the liquor"...please disregard that. The drinks really were perfect and a good time was had by all in our party of six. We all agreed we will return again in the very near future and will recommend this place to other friends.
