Wife and two daughters went and had a very average experience. Should've known what was coming when we were seated at 7:45 on a Saturday night and the place was empty. Wife had filet, and daughters had salmon. Extremely average quality and taste but five star prices. Forty dollar entrees should be significantly better than what we received. The owners must really think a lot of themselves to charge the prices they do for the food they serve. Don't know how this place has stayed in business, but based on the lack of customers the rest of Columbus has figured out there are much better places to eat. We won't be back.

As one of the first to review this place when it opened, I'll be one of that last to give it a final review. We went here for the last time this weekend. This has been one of our go to spots before Blue Jackets games. Sadly, the restaurant has been bought out and will be replaced by a steak house--the last day is May 14. We will miss it. We had their special sea bass in a saki broth and the scallops with a truffle risotto. Both were very good as always. We'll miss the great service and friendly bar scene--and the wonderful chalk art on blackboards throughout. I'm sure we'll give the new place a try, but we'll miss this old standard. Thanks to all who gave us many memorable moments.

This was my first time at this restaurant and would not got back. The food was not bad but very average. I had the shrimp cocktail appetizer and salmon as a main course. I grill salmon at least every two weeks on my grill so know what a good piece can taste like. This was not that. It was very bland with little seasoning. The shrimp was also just OK, not crisp like it should be. I can get better shrimp at a local speciality grocery.

My sons and I had dinner here on a Thursday night. We each ordered something the server recommended. The burger was good, but the other dinners were the same quality as Max & Erma's next door. The scallops and risotto were undercooked and the truffle flavor was overwhelming. I had the crab topped tilapia. It was real crab but tasted lie it was imitation.

I know a lot of people have enjoyed dinner there so we tried it. Will we go back? No, not with so many other options in the area on High Street and in the Short North area.
