    First time eating at Latitude. Took my friend for her birthday. The food was not good. It was noisy and the service was terrible. For example, the server gave us the check then about 10 minutes later, when picking up the payment, asked if we wanted to order dessert.....hmmmm : / I could say more but in summary, it was the worst restaurant I have ever eaten in Columbus.

    In town for one night on business, I stayed at the nearby Residence Inn. Latitude 41 appeared to be the right mix between close enough and nice enough. I watched as the few servers struggled with the restaurant at 50% capacity. There were 2 decent sized groups, so I was understanding, but at least give me a chance to order a second drink. The charcuterie plate mentioned it included pate, but instead came with almonds, pickles, strips of lamb fat (which they referred to as "lamb bacon"), and some cured pork slices of some sort. The pickles were weak and the lamb was almost entirely fat. The Caesar was decent. I had to ask the hostess for the check and witnessed at least one other patron do the same. Step up your game on Saturday nights!

    Caesar salad was really excellent. Mussels were not fresh. Had one I couldn't even swallow. Mediterranean plate was boring: cucumbers were plain, hummus had very little flavor. Spare ribs were good. For the price we paid, I definitely would not return or recommend. Sorry Lat...

    My wife and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary here and had the best time! Our server Dillon was Awesome, very friendly, helpful and kind! He made our special moment a night to never forget and the Chef- can I say was -Fantastic to say the least...!!He personally prepared our meals and came out several times to check on us and what a great guy as well..!! The food was outrageously great and the mushroom risotto was to die for..WOW..that was something that I would drive the hour from my home just to eat....that's how good that dish was, everything was great!! Thank you all again, for making sure the flowers I ordered were on the table, the great private view, and for treating us like family!! We will definitely be coming back again!!!

    We dine out often so I'm a bit of a snob. With that in mind, let me just say that Latitudes 41 almost got it right. The dinner menu is not extensive. I believe ther were 6 entrees listed, but they were out of the lamb and the short ribs. My ribeye was cooked to order & my husband's chicken was good too. But I personally feel that the Benton's bacon was not used to the best of its ability. That is dropdead yummy bacon and was crumbled in the mashed potatoes & lost all its individuality. Such a shame. The service was comical at times. We gave our valet parrking voucher to waiter, but he never validated it.

    It wasn't just one thing but several small things. Sat us at table with honey on the seats. My sister & myself were wearing $400-$600 dresses. The Mushroom truffle pizza real was lacking that wow factor most truffle dishes present. Mussels were really good! Wine list was, eh. Our Cesar salads came out. Mine being the only one with salmon not added; I had ordered the Lamb kabobs from the small plates, which never came. I left dissatisfied and was hungry an hr later. We honestly went with it and tried to make best of it because we were there and nothing we could do once ordering. Our attitudes about our situation is the only thing that saved us that dinning experience.

    The menu is very limited and not too much variety. They use local ingredients which is wonderful. I wouldn't choose this restaurant if you are going with a large party with different taste to accomodate. I had the pork chops which were delicious and flavorful. The bread pudding dessert was okay but I wouldn't order again. The waiter was super efficient and friendly. I would visit again.

    We ate at Latitude 41 before attending the theater. From valet to our meal, we could not have had a better experience. Thank you Katie for your excellent serving skills--taking care of all of our party of 8 needs from beginning to end. You even kept us on track to get to the theater in time! We really were treated like treasures. Thank you for a wonderful evening! We'll be back!

    Our group of 4 enjoyed every dish we ordered. Decent wine and beer offerings. Not crowded at all even though the Ohio Theater was sold out that night with "The Book of Mormon". According to the waiter they do not attract the local crowd as much as I believe they should. The small but varied menu had enough choices to make everyone happy. The two highlights had to be the Lobster mac and cheese, enough lobster to make be believe they use a whole one and the braised beef short ribs over polenta and vegetables, excellent! Put this on on your list when dining downtown and you will not be disappointed.

    We told the waiter at the start we had Broadway show tickets and we needed to be out by 715.resturaunt was not busy. We were there at 6. Our food came out at 710. Our checks were all wrong. My pasta primavera only had peas and a few bits of cauliflower.. Missing half the said ingredients on the menu. We missed the first 15 mins if our show. Sadly dissapointed in the service and didn't have the time to complain that evening.

    Three years ago, I found this restaurant when I used to work with the Renaissance and had to have events at Latitude 41 for special dinners. I was pleasantly surprised by how great the food was as well as the focus on local produce. The restaurant has a contemporary yet rustic aesthetic. The only complaint is that it's quiet and makes it appear to not be a thriving restaurant, but I assure that the food, even after three years, is amazing. My favorites are still made: Lobster Mac & Cheese with big chunks of claw meat and truffle fries with a twist on the classic aioli and ketchup. The food itself even with a new chef since I've left, is the single reason why I always recommend this restaurant to friends.

    I love this place for business lunches...however, they insisted on a round table for 5 near the kitchen...I usually protest, but wanted to not make a deal in front of clients. We were seated at a table next to the open kitchen, made conversation a challenge at ties! food always wonderful though, so I will keep going back!

    Went on a Friday night at 6. Not very crowded, we were seated right away right by a window so we could see the action downtown. The server was great, she knew the menu and the drink list. She suggested a beer for me that I loved and helped my wife find a nice Cabernet that she really liked. We got two appetizers, the cheese plate and the bread and butter plate. I liked the cheese plate much better but not much cheese. I got the hanger steak and my wife got lamb kabobs and the fried brussel sprouts. My steak was cooked right and the potatoes were very good. The lamb kabob's were over cooked but the brussel sprouts were fantastic. Valet parking was only $3. Overall good good food and drink and excellent service.

    We had the six course Chef's Tasting with wine. This is a wonderful way to try a wide selection of the items on the menu, with the added bonus of their suggestions as to the wine pairings. Six small plates starting with the beet salad gave a taste, without being overfilling. Each selection became our favorite of the night. We tasted, after the salad, the pork bruchetta, pork shoulder, duck bourgenoign, scallapos with asparagus, and ended with a wonderful hot dark chocolate fudge cake. Each wine pairing was perfect with the meal, and featured the two Bolthouse Wine blends, and ended with a mangocello. By the end we were not only satisfied, but extremely pleased with our evening, both food and service.

    I really enjoyed the dining experience. The waiter was outstanding and friendly and kept up with our refills without being asked. The food was excellent and fast! You get a lot of food for the money, as i couldn't even finish the meal. Very nice quality - upscale establishment and food! Enjoyed the complimentary fruit smoothy as well. We wanted for nothing while we were there. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and would eat there again when downtown. Convenient to parking also!

    My reservation was for 8:00PM and by this time the restaurant ran out of mashed potatoes. The waiter did not take the time to learn the menu (it was a special menu for the day) and as a result we were given the wrong information about our dinner options. It took over 50 minutes to get our food on this limited menu. We ran out of wine on several occasions and at one point I had to get out of my seat to get the waiter. Food was overall good and the atmosphere was nice. The main downfall, I had spent over $150.00 on dinner to leave hungry and disappointed with the waiter. I would not go back again.

    Went for lunch. Hostess was friendly but kept assuming we were from out of town. Server was curt and didn't have much info on new items. Table was randomly placed, felt like we were thrown in the middle of the floor. Food was good. Limited lunch menu. Would like to try a different server and dinner menu. Would have been nice to have bread before we ordered. Wasn't offered dessert or refills. Bill delivered right after we were served. Maybe just an "off day" for them?

    Location & ambiance are great, people were friendly...but I felt like it was missing something since the last time I was there 2 years ago. We were expecting to have the same experience that we had for Valentines Day 2012. I'm not sure if it was a special menu just for that day or what? I asked about the chef that opened the place a few years ago and he has since moved on...so maybe that is why the experience was lacking. I also felt like our server was either brand new to the place or wasn't properly trained...he couldn't make any recommendations on which wine to pick in my budget or what was a popular menu item. I'll probably head back in another year or at least read more recent reviews before planning another reservation.
