    This was my first time eating at L'Antibe and it exceeded my high expectations! Our server, Dominic, was friendly and provided great service. The meal was great from the first course through the last. Perfect portion sizes, great timing between courses, and of course the food was absolutely delicious! We had Foie gra for an app, avocado salad as the 2nd course, filet and ahi tuna for the main course, and stuffed crepes for desert. Everything cooked to perfection with great presentations. Two thumbs up!!!

    Matt Litzinger has created a special restaurant tucked away on a side street in the Short North. The food and service were by far among the best we've experienced in Central Ohio. The beef short rib entree was cooked to perfection, and the compressed beet salad with an aioli accent was delicious. Our birthday dinner was completed with a shared serving of homemade vanilla ice cream with fresh berries. The restaurant is a must for foodies!

    The food was clean and fresh, seasoned perfectly, not drowning in needless sauces. The very best filet I have every tasted, absolute perfection! The salmon entrée was incredible as well. The crab cake starter was loved by my husband who normally doesn't eat any seafood. The avocado salad was refreshing and quite tasty. Service was perfect! Impressive wine list accompanied by wonderful suggestions for pairing. Can't say enough wonderful things about L'Antibes. We will return soon and often!

    This is a small restaurant where they pay attention to detail. The plates are beautiful and the food is subtle and vibrant all at the same time. Although not priced for an everyday meal, it can be reasonable enough just to go on a whim and I suggest that you do. The staff was pleasant without being intrusive and it was a lovely experience all around. We had dinner for 2 1/2 hours and it seemed liked we just sat down. It was a wonderful evening and we went for no other reason then just to have a nice meal and a great evening out.

    Always a pleasure, chef puts alot of thought and work into each dish providing for an amazing experience that does not disappoint. The weather was beatiful and the new patio was amazing. The patio environment allows for more casual dining and increases the capacity. The patio menu contains lighter (and less expensive) fare but is equally amazing. We sat on the patio and ordered off of both the patio menu and the main menu. Now you can walk up in casual attire and get a seat on the patio and eat a lighter meal and enjoy a drink with friends as well as opt for a more formal & romantic experience indoors. The patio has taken the restaruants parking spots, and if there is no valet present, parking may present a challenge.

    My wife and I came to L'Antibes to celebrate our anniversary. The food was fantastic - some of, if not the, best food we've had in Columbus. The dining room is small, quiet and intimate. Perfect for a special occasion or dinner with loved ones. The service was spot on. We want to come back and dine on their nice patio the next time it's open.

    I had wanted to eat here for quite sometime. I passed it numerous times on my way up and down High Street. I finally made a reservation. The menu looked exciting to me and the wine list was exceptional. Once served I found the food to be under-seasoned. The price was high for the quality and flavor of the food. I expected exceptional and what I received was mediocre.

    Until recently, have always considered L'Antibes one of the very best restaurants in Columbus, the only one for 1st-rate classic French cuisine, worth the high-prices. But a recent meal was disappointing: although two appetizers were indeed excellent (foie gras, porkbelly), two entrees were just adequate but flawed, the third (lobster) unworthy of this restaurant---lobster portion tiny and flavorless, sauce and risotto had no imagination and utterly, utterly bland; desserts good, not remarkable in any way. At a moderately-priced restaurant, this meal might be considered adequate, but for $235 (3 people + wine, not including tip), this was completely unacceptable. Perhaps this occasion was just an anomaly, so do check for later reviews.

    L'Antibes was a special occasion night out. The meal was perfect, the service superb and, aside from a little too-chummy of a seating arrangement, the experience ranked among Columbus' finest. But with all that said, and with selections that ranked at the menu's mid-point, the price tag was just over-the-top.

  • Very good, overpriced
    Chandra
    Dined on 5/16/2014
    The food was very good but rather overpriced. We were especially annoyed that the cheapest wine was $55 a bottle -- something, at a restaurant like this should have cost $30-35. We ordered grappa to end the meal -- the waiter said that they didn't have it, and placed in front of us a glass of pernod, which we didn't ask for. We assumed that it was a gracious gesture for not having grappa which was listed in the wine menu. When the bill came we were taken aback to find that we had been charged for it -- something we didn't ask for, something we had not been consulted on as a replacement for what we ordered. That was pretty tacky.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    Lovely menu, terrific wine list, and thoughtfully prepared ingredients. Dining room is a bit Spartan, but pleasant. Service was bland, perfunctory - clearly he was just doing his job with exactly zero enthusiasm or desire to be at work. Two notable downsides to the evening: Ordered a half bottle of Ramey Chardonnay RRV, but were told that they were out. The substitute (at apparently the same price)? A half bottle of Calera Chardonnay Central Coast. At retail the Calera is less than half the price of the Ramey. Seems a little sleazy to try to swap out a $9 retail bottle in place of the Ramey. Second downside: $120/person tab (for not a big meal/lots of drinking). There's a lot of better competition in this city at that price point.

    L'Antibes has been a fine dining staple in Columbus for a long time - regularly makes lists of best romantic and special occasion restaurants, etc. My husband and I had been looking forward to an excuse to try it for awhile and finally gave it a go as part of a night out for my Birthday... unfortunately, we weren't blown away. Neither of us minds dropping a fair amount of money for a good meal but in this case - the price point was on par with The Refectory, but neither the food or service held a candle to it. We shared a small plate, each had a salad & an entree, plus a couple glasses of wine each - while not bad, also not remarkable & definitely not worth the hefty bill. Oh well, at least our curiosity has been satisfied.

    A group of five business friends went here because another colleague recommended the escargot, duck with white bean cassole, and chocolate mouse. We also enjoyed the foie gras special, beef, salmon, and other desserts. The waiter was perfect, and rolled with our frivolity. Unless WE were there, you could also have enjoyed a very romantic quiet dinner (there are only about 10 tables that I saw). Great French food and a robusto-length (if you smoke) stroll from the convention center.

    The very good: The food was outstanding. The service was timely, friendly and outstanding. We wanted to try this place for a few years now. The bad: The servings was too small. The price was way too high. I had to eat two full bowls of bread to be full. For the same price, my wife & I could gone to the Fish Market for the same price, nearly the same quality (yes, I admit they are better than Camy's old gig but not that much more!). It is simply overpriced for the amount of food served. We joked when we left pizza truck knew park right outside because their customers would still be hungry. We also joked that their motto should be "In our restaurant, we won't fill you up and we will leave you a little lighter (in the wallet)."

    One of the best restaurants in Columbus, Ohio. We were celebrating our 10th year wedding anniversary and we had a very romantic dinner. The preparation of the dishes is simply excellent and the taste is even better! The foie gras melts in your mouth (definitely the best in Columbus). We also had the sweetbread and they were delicious. We both had the duck for the main course and again it was delicious. The service was excellent. We just love L'Antibes.

    L'Antibes is a wonderful, French-inspired, comfortable restaurant. Service was impeccable. It's a quiet, understated restaurant, so if you are looking for high energy, this isn't the place for you. However, the food was wondeful! Every dish was delicious, cooked perfectly, proper temperature, and combined wonderful flavors. We particularly enjoyed the cauliflower soup, avocado salad, short ribs, duck, and crème brulee. Highly recommend! We took our 10-year-old daughter and she loved it as well, but then she's quite the adventurous eater!
