This clubhouse venue at a private golf club is open to the public for dining...a good idea that keeps getting better. Getting there just before 5 on a Thursday worked as the place filled up quickly and why not? The specials for this week debuted and the two we had were indeed SPECIAL ! She just loved the curry pumpkin shrimp (didn't even leave a bite for me) and my 5-spice grouper must have been prepared by the same 5-spice expert at Nan Ling in Shanghai, just the right amount on a dish that's ideal for this fine concoction. Trollsdad43123 is right about the lobster bisque too. It's worth going there just for that. Easy access from I-71 just south of Columbus on the way to Cincinnati. Decent wine selection and even better offerings of draft beers. Service is very good as well.

I am a regular at Cimi's. The lobster bisque is among the best i have had anywhere. The pizza's are baked in the wood pizza oven, and are great. The food overall is quite good. I have never had a bad dinner or lunch experience. They do change the menu regullarly and the prices are quite resonable.

I would not recomend brunch, it is defiently not their specialty, which is a shame. I would recommend that the club needs to get this right....

If the weather is good, definetly ask for an outside table. Even if you are not a golfer, the view is fantastic.

The service is okay - not bad, but not great either. The staff though is very friendly and courteous. The food and beverage manager, Charlie, is one of the best i have ever known - anywhere!

Pinnacle is only 10 minutes from downtown and worth the drive for sure.

The coffee is liquid (don't epect fresh brewed). The food tastes as if it was cooked prior and frozen. The waffles were floppy - probably used the pancake batter. There was not much that was redeaming about this food. I would not expect this from such a high talked about restaurant. No wonder we were the only ones there.

My wife and I enjoyed dinner outside with the beautiful Pinnacle Golf course in full view. We had tickets to see "Memphis" so it was a wonderful preview. The night we were there, they were featuring a Pasta Bar. The chef prepared an entree from your choice of a wide selection of shrimp, meatballs, various vegetables, cheeses and sauces.

The service was excellent, the dishes are prepared well and presented attractively, and the prices are reasonable. A pleasing diversion from the normal selection of chain restaurants in this part of Columbus. Highly recommend the Fish and Chips.
