I truly had high hopes for this
place. We dine out to eat frequently but hadn't yet made it there. It was fine but there are too many great places to choose it again. The portions are small--even the pasta. Glasses of wine are stingy. The server totally butchered the pronounciation of many of their regular menu items. It felt as if they were just doing enough to get by and had given up. Sadly disappointed."

We've lived in the area for almost
two years but tend to head south for dinner, when our dinner plans fell through we decided to take our 4 year old daughter and try something new. The waitress was incredibly friendly, attentive, and helpful, the cocktails were well made and generous, and the food was excellent. The filet my wife had actually had a grill/char taste to it that added a lot of flavor without overwhelming the meat. If you had to pick on something, the decor is dated, the chairs feeling like your at a wedding reception in 1980, but given the location in a strip mall in Powell I can't fault them for it. The food, drinks, and service were all excellent and we were very pleasantly surprised to find something so good so close."

This place is always top notch! I
enjoy the quite, small and quaint feel when my husband & I are out on date night! The menu is great and they always make you feel welcome!"

I was very disappointed with this
restaurant since this was the second time that it was visited. There was four in our party. The wine portion was very skimpy and I did not feel that the value for the amount was appropriate ($8.50 for about 1/4 of a glass). The meal, the evening special, was a bone-in-ribeye which had a lot of gristle and therefore the value paid ($35) was both neither worth it nor the quality of the meat justify the price. The desert was crème brulee and the portion was very small. Finally, the waitress should have advised us the there was a split plate charge which they charged us for both the salad and the main meal."

This is a nice little dinner spot
in an otherwise non-descript strip mall near downtown Powell. The Chef is excellent and his food reflects culinary skill and creativity. Lovely ambience although it can be a bit drafty in the winter. A fireplace (or at least the illusion of one) would be nice to creat a cozier scene in cold months. When the front door opens as guests enter, the whole place cools down real quick! There is generally only 1 waitress who has to tend to the entire place. on quiet nights, that is great. On busier nights, she is more than running! This MAY slow down the ordering, drink filling, food delivering process. We enjoy the meals and love the small town homey feel overall. Definitely worth checking out..."

We are never disappointed when we
visit C. William's bistro. They seem to always have a 'new' wine for us to try with our meal. The food is consistently good. A good value for the quality of food!"

C. Williams Bistro is a great
place to dine. Four of us dined here and all enjoyed the great food, atmosphere and service. We will dine here again!"

Aged Australian lamb, done to
perfection. Wonderful! Would recommend highly, but then again, we always have a great meal here."

C. Williams is a terrfic
alternative in Powell for a more relaxed and upscale food selection at a reasonable price. There were a number of larger parties after an OSU game but the service was attentive and the food came out in a timely manner. I've eaten there numberous times before and have never been disappointed with the quality of the food. The wine list is also a pleasant surprise. The flatbread speacial for the night was amazing!"

This is the third time my wife and
I have been to C. Williams Bistro. The food was excellent. I had the special which was duck breat. It was prepared that it was not greasey at all. Top notch food. Our waitress was wonderful but slightly overwhelmed due to lack of staff. This is the second time the service was slow, but still my wife and I had a great evening out. Dave Schmidt"

Overall our group of 6 had a great
dining experience. The hostess is the owner's mom, a Brooklyn native, fun and obviously proud of her chef/owner son. I think she has every right to this opinion. The food was wonderful, everything made to order and fresh. 3 ladies in our group stuck to appetizers with a salad. The lobster risotto is to die for. ($10 ). I had a shrimp scampi special. 4 HUGE and wonderfully prepared shrimp (hard to call these shrimps at this size) on fresh pasta in a creamy garlic sauce. Yummy and rich. Everyone loved the food. I think this is a great neighborhood restaurant with fabulous food."

Best meal I've had in a long time
& that's saying a lot, sine we just got back from a 10-day trip eating our way through Savannah & Hilton Head!"

The food here is as good or better
than what I've gotten at 4 and 5 start restaurants in Manhattan. GO! My favorite is the Chicken Picatta, but everything I've ever had here is just wonderful. Christopher (Chef and owner) does a great job!"

As a relatively frequent guest, we
appreciate that the staff greets us by name, remembers our favorite drink orders, and is friendly -- yet doesn't interfere with our interest in having a private dinner!"

C. Williams has a wonderful chef
and excellent food. Service is good. But the restaurant could use an update on decor, it's a bit boring and dated inside. But if you are looking for excellent and consistant food, this is your place. Great neighborhood and comfortable place to be."

C Williams serves up excellent
food that is consistently and thoughtfully prepared and presented. The food at dinner and brunch certainly meet the expectation for 'special occasion.' The dining room seems more 'neighborhood gem' - simply decorated. This to me is a winning combination."

The food here is always superb;
one of the top properties in Columbus. It might not have the name recognition or location of a Cameron Mitchell, but the quality is equal or better. I appreciate it's family owned and the owner/chef takes great pride in running an outstanding restaurant. I don't often give four stars across the board - and this only comes after making multiple visits and having the food and service being consistently top notch each time."
