Description: G. Michael's Bistro & Bar. We are a restaurant committed to offering a unique dining experience — unlike any other in German Village and Columbus.At G. Michael's we are committed to focusing on local, seasonal food as much as possible. We endeavor to source as much of our pork, beef, produce and dairy from central Ohio growers and producers as possible. Feel free to ask your server which of our menu items feature these local ingredients.

If you're a foodie, you'll love G. Michael's. This is food done well. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. It's is a bit more on the expensive side, but the appetizer/entree options and food quality really is excellent.

We had dinner here visiting from out of town. As usual, I looked to TripAdvisor when looking for a restaurant. We had a late dinner (8:15) on a Friday night and were able to get a seat outside in the intimate and romantic garden patio.

Server made excellent recommendations. We had a selection of appetizers. Sadly they were out of the summer tomato tart, so we instead ordered the Duck Confit Crostini and also the Fried Green Tomatoes, and Shrimp and Grits. All were excellent! We look forward to returning next time we are in Columbus. Nice for couples, special occasions and business.

I've been going here for a few years, and it's always, ALWAYS a great experience. I've never had anything that was not delicious. The staff is courteous and attentive. Very knowledgeable about ever item on the menu.

For a casual experience, I like that I can slip in to the tables at the bar and get the excellent food and service without having to dress up.

This is my go to place for special occasions, entertaining guests, or just because I need a good meal.

Michael's serves tasty, well produced food. The ingredients are fresh and of very good quality. It comes to the table with the right temperature, looking very good, tasting very good. Excellent service. Superb vine. Quality and price ratio is very good. But somehow, I missed the elegance. It was as if it was too much, too many tastes put together in one: as you can see on the photos it is not quite easy to guess what I had to eat.
Anyway, do not hesitate to go there. It is great!

We had a great meal here. The chef it not shy when it comes to flavors. He uses vinegar, hot peppers and spices without making them a pronounced flavor -- just enough. My husband eats here whenever he goes to Columbus. Can't wait for the next trip.
