Cameron's American Bistro
The Best Father's Day Dinner!We just had the best experience dining at Cameron's! We have young kids and they treated them like kings. A full kids menu that included the usual PLUS salmon and crab cakes. All meals were served with a yummy vegetable too AND sundae. A great value. They also gave our kids the opportunity to pick a prize from the treasure box...great choices. The service was exceptional! It was clear that the entire staff was working together as a team which made for the best dining experience that I've had for some time. Food was wonderful as usual. And we were sure to take advantage of the Sunday "Wine Down" half-off bottles of wine. They also gave a gift to the Dads! Nice touch! Thanks for a great night.6/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood astonishing and waitreesFood astonishing and waitrees even more amazingly helpful, patient, friendly, accomodating.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMCatfishThe Catfish meal was one of the all time great fish meals that I have had. The sides that came with it with it were scrumptious.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryWent out to celebrate an anniversary with friends. The service and food were great and the rose and free dessert were a nice added touch. At our table of four, we had two orders of Walleye, an order of Catfish and one of Shrimp and Grits. Everyone enjoyed their meal greatly and we all shared bites. The general feeling was that the Catfish was tops.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMCatfish heaven!The catfish, with an interesting and unusual barbecue sauce is highly recommended. The accompanying sautéed Brussels sprouts were wonderful-tender and mild. Potato pancakes were also very good but perhaps a little too abundant.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur special occasionBased on previous pleasant dining there, my husband and I returned to Cameron's American Bistro to celebrate our 51st wedding anniversary. As expected, our dining experience was great from the time we were greeted by the hostess until we departed having enjoyed a delicious meal with a rose, dessert and personal anniversary greetings from the staff. Our server Justina was most attentive. We enjoyed watching Chachi (sp?) hispanic cook as he was eagerly doing his work with a huge smile. Thanks to all.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific place!We love this restaurant! The ambiance, service and food are consistently outstanding. Although we often have calamari as an appetizer, we chose the lobster pierogies this time. Yum! Fish, seafood, beef, pork, lamb - always excellent. My husband is a fan of the short ribs. Lemon gratin dessert is a winner!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLast minute Date NightEven though it was the Memorial Weekend 4 of us were able to get a last minute dinner reservation, we were even able to push up back 1/2 hour which was a bonus. We had $150 in gift certificates and found an easy way to spend them, speciality drink was really yummy. Wallae was great, dessert was good, total experience was positive!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA MUSTCameron's American Bistro is a local landmark! The food and atmosphere are outstanding! Highly Recommend!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for familiesWe went to celebrate my parents 35th wedding anniversary and we took our 1 year old daughter with us. We were nervous about how the restaurant would handle her and they were great! Wonderful kids menu and the waiter made sure to bring her food quickly. We wanted to make the dinner very special without the baby making a scene and Cameron's were so accommodating that we made it possible. The food and service are top notch at Cameron's!!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat celebration spot!Perfect pick for a celebration dinner. Service and food were excellent. Gluten free menu was perfect for my father who usually has to make do. Atmosphere was festive and contemporary. We enjoyed it very much and felt that it was a very good value.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMnice but noisyIt's a smaller restaurant and busy so it was noisy. But in saying that food was great, service was great. Had a great time. Although new parents brought baby with them so it was a bit distracting.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMCameron's still a winnerExcellent food and service. A bit noisy but overall a great experience. I believe it is even better now than the last time I was there.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome, as always.Cameron's is our favorite place to go. It is all high quality from the time you walk in the door until you walk out the door.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMLong time neighborhood favorite.We have been going to thr original Cameron's since it opened and have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries, graduations and many other events and have never been disappointed. We always take out of town guests there as an example of Central Ohio fine dining and must sees.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating an anniversary.We were celebrating an anniversary. The food was great and the service excellent. Every part of our evening was more than we had hoped for. We will be back.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a business dinnerI hosted an event for several staff including visitors from Europe. The food and service was great.

Best capuchino in town.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife enjoyed the roastedMy wife enjoyed the roasted lamb and I enjoyed the Walleye.The service was excellent and the food as reasonably priced given the high quality.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Sunday BrunchMothers Day is always more special with Sunday Brunch at Camerons. It has been great having Camerons as a restaurant close to our neighborhood. They do a wonderful job anytime we are there for diinner or brunch. The food is always excellent and the Walleye is a winner.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable RestaurantConsistently good place to meet and chat. The server was friendly and prompt.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day dinnerI wanted to like this restaurant, since it is close to my house. Greeted/seated promptly at our reservation time. Kids given crayons and an activity booklet (not just 1 sheet) and a Mother's Day picture to color. Service was attentive and appropriately-timed. Food was disappointing for the price. Walleye lacked flavor and the sauce was not flavorful enough to perk it up. Seafood pasta was tasty, but I assumed it would be a white sauce instead of red, so I was disappointed [should have read more carefully or asked]. Short ribs were fine but not outstanding. Lemon cheesecake-type dessert was delicious. I've had better-tasting meals here in the past. If I recall, scallops were delicious.
For the price, we will go elsewhere in the future.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is good, well prepared,The food is good, well prepared, and served at the appropriate temperature. The service is always top notch. It very nice to dine at Cameron's American Bistro and be treated so well by the staff and with food that is very good.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch at Cameron'sWONDERFUL brunch. Loved the brunch punch, loved the food on the buffet and the small plate menu was the best idea ever! I was full all day after this brunch. The service staff was awesome and of course, they have one of the best bartenders in Columbus.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a delicious time!Next time you don't quite know what you want - remember Cameron's. get a reservation the place is fairly small. The food is yummy and pretty healthy too! The drinks are made to perfection! Service is great!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent EveningLittle did we know that all bottles of wine are 1/2 price on Sunday evenings! The meal was excellent, the service fast and friendly, the bar staff pleasant and knowledgeable. It also had a romantic atmosphere, which was unexpected and nice.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service and food was excellent,The service and food was excellent, but the tables are so close together, it felt like we were intruding on neighboring conversation.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious Dining and Excellent StafI have had dinner here twice and was pleased both times. The ambiance is good for friends, relatives, couples. It's comfortable if you're dressed casually or formally. The staff is very attentive and you'll want for nothing throughout your meal. The staff is also very knowledgeable about the menu and will help you with selections and ideas.
They have a gluten-free menu (and the gluten-free rolls are quite delicious).
The filet mignon is so tender you hardly need a knife. The sides are delicious too. And the desserts are simply wonderful.
Trust your wait staff to recommend a good wine. They are very good at that.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've eaten at Cameron's numerousWe've eaten at Cameron's numerous times and it never disappoints. Both Food and Service are always top notch. We were lucky they had their famous crusted Walleye back as a special. It has been a staple of Cameron's menu but hasn't been on for a while and it's excellent. I had the Shrimp Bisque and I've never had better. Everyone else's salads and entree's were great as the 4 of us shared tastes. Oh, and the bread is worth the trip too, especially if you like the roasted garlic they serve with it. It's got a hard crust that I like and is always served fresh out of the oven. The wine list is not huge but offers good variety and value. All and all a wonderfull experience.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorites, alwaysOne of our favorites, always first class!
Erica our server is a delight!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe beet salad and viscicoiseThe beet salad and viscicoise (spelling?) were very special. We all had the walleye. Suggestion: have the server tell us the specials up front so we know what to choose from. Otherwise, service, food and wine terrific. Would definitely return to try other dishes.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent dinner and a niceExcellent dinner and a nice "date night" spot for my husband and I. We shared the caesar salad to start and my husband had the pineapple cosmo cocktail. The salad was good, pretty standars, but large enough to share. For dinner I had the pan roasted scallops and my husband had the steak frites. The scallops were large, juicy, and perfectly cooked, and the mashed potatoes and vegetables were delicious as well. The only disappoitment were the truffle potato chips - overcooked and no truffle flavor. My husbands steak was excellent, well seasoned and cooked perfectly. The hand-cut truffle fries were again overcooked and no truffle flavor. Overall a very good meal and portion sizes are quite large, almost too large, but so delicious.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went on a Friday eveningWe went on a Friday evening and were seated promptly at our reservation time. We were waited on in an efficient and friendly manner. My food...risotto balls, shrimp with grits, and vanilla ice cream was pretty much flawless...especially the grits which were incredibly creamy and perfectly spiced. It's a nice room, but they have squeezed every inch of space out of it they can, and, not unexpectedly, on a Friday evening, it felt terribly crowded and was extremely noisy. It's still a darned good restaurant, and, unless one is seeking crowds and noise, probably one worth visiting on a quieter weekday. In fairness, we arrived at the height of the dinner hour (8.30pm), and, by 9.45pm, things had emptied out and quiet down considerably.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy dinner companion had theMy dinner companion had the salmon and found it delicious, as always. I had the catfish for a change of pace. The spoon bread was wonderful, as were the greens (and I don't usually like greens). The seasoning of the catfish was a bit milder than I would have preferred, and it could have been cooked a tad longer. Service was, as always, first rate.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a gift card for CameronI had a gift card for Cameron Mitchell restaurants and decided to use it on something new. Good choice! We were very pleased with the food and service. If you have dietary restrictions like I do (I don't eat much meat and do not eat pork at all) then look up the menu before going as there are limited options. The restaurant was also quite noisy, but I believe it was due in large part to a rowdy table near ours and may not always be that way.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, this was an excellentAs always, this was an excellent experience. One
of Columbus nicest dining establishments4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I ahd a very pleasantMy wife and I ahd a very pleasant dining experience. The staff was delightful and food was very tasty and cooked to perfection. This was our first visit but we'll be back!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for my birthday and asWent for my birthday and as usual Cameron's never fails. Great food, great atmosphere. We had fantastic service from Erica who was attentive, informative and friendly. We will be back!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe nicest thing was thatThe nicest thing was that at the reservation time we were immediately taken to a table, no waiting at all. The food was very good, the beet salad was really good, and the portions were more than enough. The only real downside was that it is very noisy and until people started leaving it was hard to talk.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was delicious, servicefood was delicious, service excellent and I would recommend to anyone.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA Lovely Dining ExperienceThis is probably my favorite restaurant in Columbus. We were there this evening to celebrate my birthday. Everything is so special there. It is not terribly elegant, but very nice and comfortable. The server, Erica was terrific! We shared a bottle of wine, the portobello mushroom appetizer, a caprasi salad, roasted lamb and a lovely sorbet. Sadly some restaurants don't want customers to share and add charges, but our dinners were divided and the amounts were just right and presented perfectly. I could not have been more pleased.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBountiful, Beautiful BuffetCameron's special Easter Sunday Brunch was terrific! The bountiful buffet was conscientiously monitored and quick food replacements just kept arriving. Our service was super. The mini food plates were delicious...We were so happily full that we could only marvel at the gorgeous shelves of little desserts on our way out. We SHALL be back and have saved this place for next Easter's special brunch. Wonderful.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Easter brunch was absolutelyThe Easter brunch was absolutely FABULOUS!! We had a disabled person in our party and the hostess was very accommodating and made the wait as comfortable as possible. It was a bit difficult to navigate through the tables to get to the buffet but the food definitely made up for it!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Time.This is our second time at the American Bistro buffet and both have been great. The service was fantastic, the food was great, and we could not have been happier. The only negative was the lack of space in the entrance while we waited to be seated but that couldn't be helped. Even that did not detract from the fun that we had. The buffet table was kept well stocked, and the food variety was excellent. The ability to order some items off of a menu was great. As I mentioned above, the service was fantastic. The drinks were refreshed on time, the plates were removed quickly, all questions answered quickly, and with a smile. We were more than satisfied and hope to enjoy this buffet as often as we can.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA perfect dining experience.A perfect dining experience. Reservation on-time, attentive server, and superb food. We both had the goat cheese salad and shrimp and grits. No one else can do grits like Cameron's. It was half off a bottle of wine night which was a plus. My seat allowed me to observe the kitchen. The head chef checked each plate as it came to the pickup shelf and made changes as necessary. Additionally, I never saw a plate sit there more than thirty seconds before being delivered to a table. Very impressive.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed Easter brunchWe really enjoyed Easter brunch at the restaurant this year. We probably make it our tradition from now on. Buffet was not overwhelmingly large and neither line. Some warm plates are prepared in the kitchen individually to be served by order so that they are not sitting on table getting cold and dry. everything was well thought. We felt chef's love for dining entertainment. Dining room was maybe bit small for the crowd and buffet table, but it made different fun in a way.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is not our first timeThis is not our first time at Cameron's American Bistro. We love this restaurant. The people there never forget you and the service is always excellent.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe took a couple new to theWe took a couple new to the area and they loved it.
