Diner Reviews
  • "We dined here for Restaurant Week on the 23rd. I didn't realize there was construction going on in that area, so parking was a nightmare and valet was nowhere to be seen when we pulled up. After finally finding parking in a garage, and maneuvering the traffic and construction dividers, we commented to each other "Well, dinner better be awesome." It wasn't. It wasn't necessarily bad, just mediocre. The service wasn't great either. Our server was a nice guy, just maybe not the most attentive. We waited an inordinate amount of time for our food... It kind of felt like we weren't considered a priority because we were there for restaurant week. The food was just ok, and definitely not worth the price. I doubt we'll be back."

  • "I came in with a friend for dinner; it was a busy night, and we wanted a booth, so we waited at the bar for one to open up. Service was prompt at the bar, and the hostess made sure to seat us as soon as the table was ready. We were given both the regular menu and the special menu for restaurant week, and we chose to each order from the special menu. Three courses for $35 -- it was incredible! My steak was cooked to perfection, and her salmon was rich and flavorful. Our server, Scott, checked in on us frequently, and made sure that we had everything we needed for a great evening out. When dinner was over, we enjoyed wine and desserts out on the patio. We will definitely be returning."

  • " My husband and I ate at 89 fish and grill for our anniversary. They placed a rose at our tabls and our server made sure it was an anniversary dinner to remember! Our dinner was hands down the best seafood I have had since visiting the islands. Our server was Dustan, he was great! So attentive and polite. He knew that menu inside and out. We both ordered what he suggested as what he enjoys eating and wow were we impressed. I asked him about a wine choice, explained what kinds of wine we liked and he knew exactly which one we would love! He was right is was delicious! Overall i highly recommend 89 and highly recommend requestinf dustan as your server!"

  • "From start to finish our meal & drinks were fantastic. The Angry Mussels were a great appetizer & we both enjoyed our Simply Grilled fish selections, as well as the chocolate tart for dessert. Our reservation was for 7pm & it was pretty quiet. However, it started to get a little loud around 8:00 when the tables began to fill up. Overall, we would recommend 89 Fish."

  • "Great food and ambiance - there's a good selection on the menu, and it's very cozy and comfortable. However, be ready to settle in and make yourself at home, because you're going to be there a while. Our host and waitress were both very nice and apologetic about our wait (despite reservations, we had to wait about 15 minutes for our table of 6). From the time we were seated, dinner (plus appetizers and a salad) took about 2 1/2 hours. The most painful of those hours was the one in between ordering and receiving our entrees. Again, our waitress was very apologetic. The Arctic Char was excellent; others had filet, crab cakes, chicken - all seemed to enjoy their meals. In summary - a great place, but don't go starving or in a hurry."

  • "Very pleasant patio. The music on the patio was low enough to be able to engage in conversation. The food was very good as was the service. They were very accommodating of special dietary needs and of seating request."

  • "We have dined here a few times now. The service is always great as is the food. This is the only restaurant that we go to that can make a perfect well done steak and it comes out right the first time."

  • "I needed to book a surprise 50th birthday party dinner for my friend. Being from out of town I had no idea where to go or what restaurant to pick. She loves seafood, so I took a chance based on prior reviews I had read. Awesome place. Hostesses helped with the surprise, Kevin our waiter was great, and food was wonderful. Everyone in our party loved their meals. Thanks to 89 Fish & Grill! I will return again when in Columbus"

  • "This was my third date to this restaurant. Me and my date usually sit at the bar and have awesome cocktails and dinner. This time we invited a couple and was seated, our drinks were strong and not enjoyable, our waitress Bridgette was very unattentive- which was shocking because there were hardly any guests, we even witnessed staff arguing on the floor during service and to top it all off, our guests steak was cooked incorrectly and remade incorrectly. This was soooo embarrassing because I bragged about the food and service to our guests even had them cancel reservations with Hyde and Park. I will come back and give 89 one more try, I just hope it is a better experience."

  • "This restaurant has a nice, semi-casual atmosphere indoors, but at 7:15 PM, the weather was so nice we opted for the Patio. The wait staff was attentive and friendly, with a relaxed no-rush atmosphere. We sat near the musical entertainment; Parker Muntz played guitar and sang - softly. Music was low, enough to listen to and enjoy or to tone-out for conversation - never overpowering. Cioppiono, a Bouillabaisse style mixture of seafood in a mild red broth. Honestly, this was just OK. I would give this a C+. The Sake Marinated Sea Bass more than made up for the Cioppiono. This dish was outstanding! This was probably the best fish that I have ever tasted. Patio atmosphere, food, service, soft music, made this a perfect evening."

  • "Normally don't leave reviews but this one is worth it! Not a thing to complain about! Incredible food, dined on the patio, nice live music, attentive helpful waiter. We Had the shucked oysters, east and west coast, grilled swordfish, chiopino, and each had a desert. Everything was perfect. The swordfish was literally the prettiest plating I've ever seen. 5 stars all around, for sure will be back."

  • "We had heard from friends how great 89 was, so six of us gave it a try Friday night. We had the east and west coast oysters. They were incredible! Also our group ordered salmon, scallops and pork dish. Everything was very good and enjoyed by all. 89 has a beautiful patio with live music. We all would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "My husband and I were traveling through Columbus from North Carolina, as dinner time started to approach I used my mobile open table app to find a restaurant. What a wonderful way to find a place to eat on the road instead of eating at a fast food or chain restaurant. 89 Fish and grill was awesome! The only thing I they couldn't offer me was an address closer to my home. Food and service was wonderful!"

  • "We were seated promptly even though we arrived a little before our reservation time. Menu was simple but provided everything we came for. Fresh fish cooked several ways was also a bonus. Portions were generous and well prepared. Server was very good and he did his job well. Enjoyed the soft back ground music. No live music was available for our early dinning. But we really enjoyed the light back ground music. It was a Birthday dinner for my companion, and she loves fish. She was not disappointed."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "The food was excellent. We'd recommend starting with fresh oysters which were so good we doubled down and ordered them twice. Entrees served with risotto and fresh vegetables all served promptly and with great presentation. Seafood (I had scallops, my wife had salmon) was fresh and perfectly cooked. Unique desserts that don't overwhelm with size or sweetness perfect for sharing when you just need a bite or two to cap things off. Outdoor dining option was nice but it lacks a good view and noise from nearby exit ramp is a drawback. This was the only downside to this location. Summing up, perfect spot for a date night or dinner with friends.. Reasonably priced, decent wine list. We'll go back!"

  • "We decided to try this restaurant because we were hoping for somewhere with an outdoor patio. The host/hostess were extremely friendly and we were able to sit outside. There was live music which concerned us at first, but it was perfect, nice and quiet background music, not over-powering. The waiter was exceptional and his recommendations were spot on. All of us enjoyed our meals and they were all cooked perfectly. Prices are reasonable for this type of restaurant. We will definitely be back."

  • "I was disappointed in my overall dining experience at 89 Fish and Grill. I have been there before and thoroughly enjoyed it, but that was more than a year ago. My food arrived hardly warm - my cocktail was off - and I found the dimly lit restaurant too dark and the bright windows blinding - need a better balance between the two. Overall, not worth the money. "

  • "Who expects great seafood in Columbus? We certainly didn't.My wife and I have been blessed to have eaten in the finest restaurants both in the USA and abroad. Our Thursday night dinner was the best we've had in a long while. I was immediately pleased to order a bottle of Albarino, one of my favorite white wines but rarely found on any restaurant's wine list. The hot crab dip was a delicious starter, but the best was yet to come. They have fresher seafood on the coasts but it's hard to top the preparation here. My wife ordered the succulent sea scallops in sage oil over truffle risotto. My "Oscar style" Skuna Bay salmon was the finest salmon entrée I've ever had, and I've eaten salmon in both Alaska and Washington state. An awesome meal! GO!"

  • "I took my close friend to The 89 for her birthday on Wednesday. The calamari was tender and tasty under a light batter. The sauce it was served with really accented the flavor. The Angry Mussels were made with chorizo and a few other spicy things. They went very well together especially on the garlic crustini. I had the crab cakes for supper. I substituted truffle risotto for the herb garlic potatoes. Wow! The risotto was well worth the $2 upcharge! The crab cakes were very tasty especially with the sauce that came with them. We skipped dessert since we were very full! They also have a very nice happy hour menu of drinks and appetizers that you can only get at the bar. "

  • "My family and I found this to be a great place to dine! The food was delicious, prepared just as we requested, and the service was wonderful. We recommend taking your time to peruse the menu and asking your waiter as many questions as you want-they are very knowledgeable and patient and will ensure you get your food just the way you want it. We were greeted and thanked, everyone was so polite and professional and we appreciated the complimentary valet parking! We would definitely return!"

  • "high quality food and reasonably large portions at a reasonable price for upscale dining - salmon and swordfish with vegetables great for those who are looking for nutrition along with a positive dining experience - great for a couple or for a group of 4 or 6, bar was lively, attentive staff but not overbearing - will definitely go back"

  • "It was our second visit to 89 Fish and Grill. Service was excellent. Food was great. We even found an obscure Italian wine that we really like. Happy hour specials are great but should be extended to the tables and booths that are near the bar."
