Started the meal off with lobster bisque with substantial portion of lobster meat in it. Had the surf and turf -- filet with a lobster tail... prepared perfectly. Ended the meal with key lime pie... one of the best I have had!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood chose for Ohio state visitorGreat place to enjoy fine dining while visiting student at Ohio state. We all had seafood dinners and enjoyed them thoroughly. Great service.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood foodGood food but kitchen service was very slow. We got our salads and bread almost immediately, but then waited over 45 minutes for our entrees. When it arrived my sea bass was overcooked on top and somewhat dried out. I've eaten here before and have not had these problems so I suspect it was just an off night.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMtasty fishI am not a big seafood fan but I do enjoy the Fish Market. every time I go there it is excellent. I have taken many different people and they all walk out amazed and wanting to go back. It is a little pricey but totally worth it. This recent excursion was on a Saturday night, a first for me, and I was very happy I made reservations. The place was crazy but in a good way. That doesn't mean we waited on anything for a very long time. Everything we had was excellend. From the beer battered chrimp to the Lobster and Shrimp stuffed cod everything was amazing. the wait staff brought me refills when I was only half way through a drink, which is a big deal to me, and impressed me considering how busy it was. I definately will be going back.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMfish marketWe have never had a bad experience at the Grandview location of the Columbus Fish Market. The oysters on the half shell are always outstanding and served beautifully chilled with very good sauces, and very fresh, as is all of the seafood we have had there. The service is always excellent and your staff are knowledgeable, well-trained, seem happy to be there ! The non-seafood lovers in our family find the steaks to be excellent, too, so everyone is happy to dine with us at your fine establishment.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousThe staff there was wonderful as soon as you walk in the door till the time you leave. The food was wonderful, the portions are great and if you don't like something there, then it's your own fault. They have something for everyone!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely Return!Our evening was spectacular! The staff were attentive and accommodating. They allowed us to split dishes so that we could sample many of their famous dishes. The food was fresh, perfectly cooked and beautifully presented. The wine list complemented the menu perfectly. The desserts were dangerously delightful! It really is a wonderful place for a special celebration. We will definitely be returning to this establishment!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOur waitress was very helpfulOur waitress was very helpful and attentive to our group of 9.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Go-to for SeafoodOur family (including a professional chef) is never disappointed with the flavor of the seafood, and the vegetables were better than ever on the recent visit, too.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEXPENSIVEoutstanding food - great quality - worth it on a very special, budgeted, occasion5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaraunt in ColumbusWhenever my family and I want to celebrate a special occasion (birthdays, anniversaries, holidays) we almost always choose to do that at the Fish Market. We've been going there for years and in our opinion considering it to be the best dining experience in Columbus.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Gumbo in townAs noted. Also, ask for the Sriracha sauce to spice it up even more....5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGluten-free friendly!Fish Market has a separate menu full if gluten-free options. Choices were diverse, and my selection was tasty.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for Any OccasionI have been visiting the Columbus Fish Market for a few years now, never too often, but it's a nice place to take the family if you are looking for great seafood in the Columbus area. Lunch and brunch prices are very reasonable, and for dinner they are matched with other restaurants in their category. You can go out and spend lavishly if you like, but you can also have a nice budgeted night out as well if you'd like. On this visit we did have one of our guests receive some fish that was not quite cooked through. However, the mistake was caught and immediately rectified by management. We could not be more pleased with how the situation was handled and are very impressed still with the quality and service of this restaurant.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fantastic andThe food was fantastic and the service was efficient but not overly friendly. Great wine selection but limited choices on beer.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently good food. SurprisinglConsistently good food. Surprisingly, it is much better than the Fish Market at Crosswoods5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasionWe had a wonderful dinner. Staff was welcoming & helpful. We chose Fish Market for the seafood quality. We celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary and was a little disappointed that we weren't even so much as congratulated when the restaurant knew ahead of time of this occasion. The pricing was as expected...certainly not too high. The portions on the large side so we left totally full and worth the money. The carrot cake could have feed 5 people!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDelectable DiningDelightful experience. Am not much of a seafood eater, but my guest was. However, the grilled tilapia was delicious, and the wait staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant. Service was prompt but not rushed. Great place to begin an evening or end a day. Would definitely recommend.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Meal & ServiceFor Mother's Day this year, CFM - Grandview really worked for us with a 3:30 reservation available that fit between the after church crowd and the evening folks. Very pleasant server, excellent salad and entrée, but we passed on dessert, though very tempted!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice way to celebrateVery nice way to celebrate college graduation and mother's day.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFAVORITEA great restraurant for special occasion (Mothers Day).

Even with the capacity crowd our service was great, thanks to Darren. Everyone

enjoyed the St. Germain Pear Cocktail and my husband appreciated the special pricing. Thanks for the roses for the Moms!
In summary, great food and fun atmosphere as always.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulExperienceI took my Mom to the Columbus Fish Market for Mother's Day. We've been a few times before and every dining experience has been outstanding. The waiters/waitresses are always so friendly. The food is always hot and right on time. I absolutely love one of their dishes, the Ginger Crusted Atlantic Salmon, it is simply delicious! Their drinks are very good as well, especially the Pine Fin Martini! I highly recommend this restaurant. It gets an A+ in my book!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy 80th BirthdayWe took my mother here to celebrate her 80th birthday. The waiter was very accomodating to her and her dietary needs. The entire family enjoyed their meal - raved about the crab cakes! We went during off hours with a late lunch at 2:00. It was quiet and easy for my parents to hear and participate in the conversation. Overall a great experience!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMgood foodonly come 3 to 4 times a year never bad meal better red lobster5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasionRestaurant very accommodating.. We thought we would be five or ten minutes late for our reservation that night. We called restaurant to let them know we were running late and they held our table. Actually we were only five minutes late. We were seated immediately and our waiter was very accommodating and made us feel welcome. Not one of those restaurants where you wonder if the waiter left or on brake. Everything from our drinks to the food very good. We would recommend it and have to our special friends when we wanted to have great evening out.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur 17th AnniversaryOur evening was very nice. Our waitress was Layla who was extra special. She made our evening very nice. She checked on us regularly but wasn't overbearing. She was sweet and knew what she was doing.
We received a red rose at our table once they found out that we were celebrating a special occasion which was a nice touch.
They had a special which we took advantage of. I had new england clam chowder which was very nice. My dinner was lobster and shrimp stuffed sea bass. And creme brule for dessert. : ) Thank you!
The only thing I noticed was that the tables were set very close together. You couldn't get up without bumping the person sitting at the next table. We had to apologize or received an apology a few times. That's not so romantic.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBad Timing?My boyfriend and I went to CFM for his belated birthday dinner and made reservations for 8:30 on a Saturday night. When we arrived, I checked in and less than 5 minutes later we were being seated. The place was packed and we were sat at a table at the kitchen entrance so it made conversation very difficult to hold.
Our waiter was inattentive and often missed refills/courses and could be seen doing many other duties instead.
All in all, our mojitos were the best we've had, and the food while smaller was just as we anticipated but the prices the same. The poor service may have just been a fluke and bad timing on our part.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMYou can count on this!We had difficulty in finding any shrimp or lobster in our entree, "shrimp and lobster stuffed sea bass". The flavor was quite good, however. The server was able to handle our table quit well even though there was a large table with many requests adjacent to ours.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party of four each selectedOur party of four each selected a different seafood dish and each was more than satisfied. Presentation was very pleasing and portions were ample. Seafood gumbo was best ever. Absolutely no complaints regarding food. Service was outstanding from a knowledgeable waitress. Only complaints were noise level and chilly airflow from an overhead vent. We all definitely plan to return.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafood!The crab and shrimp stuffed cod was excellent, very fresh.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA night out with my sonI took my 10 year old son to dinner this night. He ordered the mussels as an appetizer and trout as a main course. He then finished his dinner with the blueberry pomegranate sorbet. He very much enjoyed his dining experience and I enjoyed watching him enjoy it.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMfantastic mealcelebrated my son's graduation here from The Ohio State University (very close to campus). The service was prompt and friendly. We started with signature cocktails, a delicious spinach crab appetizer and raw oysters. The complimentary bread is delicious - crusty outside, soft inside! We each had soup or salad (house salad, seafood bisque and clam chowder) - delicious! For main we had the calamari appetizer, the shrimp special (which included salad and dessert), crab cakes, a seafood triple with scallops, blackened fish, and another item I can't remember! The shark fin dessert was great as was the creme brûlée and featured ice cream. Add one espresso and one coffee - and it was a great celebration for just over $50/per, incl. tip!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGem close to OSUWe were celebrating our son's graduation from OSU. We had an outstanding dinner. The 3 course dinner specials were delicious as well as a good value. The food exceeded our expectations and the service was spot on!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat anniversary spot!We had a great time here on our anniversary! The food was amazing and the service was the same. Because we mentioned it was our anniversary, they brought us a card and a rose at the end of our meal and offered a free dessert, nothing I expected. Additionally, I don't know very much about seafood and the server did a great job describing the items and pointing out things I might like.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and ServiceNo matter what dish you try, the food is always prepared fresh and piping hot! The service is awesome! I got there every Monday for the homemade chicken noodle soup.

And the Columbus Fish Market. I never tire of the place, though my bank account sometimes does. If your on a budget, get their lobster special or the seafood gumbo soup unlimited sourdough bread.
My dad, 86 gets in there easily, only eats steak and enjoyed theirs.
My 6 yr old loved the kids menu for coloring, the virgin piña colada, and the waitress!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMService and food are alwaysService and food are always spot on. Best seafood restaurant in Columbus. For special occasions its our go to place. They never disappoint.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
