A word from M Restaurant
When you walk into M Restaurant, Cameron Mitchell’s marquee restaurant & bar, you understand. You are not just out on the town. You are in another place entirely — South Beach, perhaps. You’re surrounded by beauty. A lovely perspective of Downtown Columbus. An outdoor terrace overlooking the Scioto riverfront. Light woods and luxurious fabrics. A dramatically lit bar. Artfully plated dishes of eclectic American cuisine, influenced by the assertive flavors of Pacific Rim & Europe. All enhanced by impeccable service and a wine list considered one of the nation's best.

    Lovely view of the Olentangy River and a cozy rounded booth table in the back of the restaurant. Our server was excellent and gave us appropriate time to review the menu options. His recommendations were spot on and the manager even thanked us for coming in. The food quality was spectacular and the presentation was beautiful. Even though the prices were quite expensive with several things ala carte I would go back again.

    We've been to M several times but the most recent visit was less than enjoyable. Food was great, service was stupendous but the bar was packed with divorced cougars trolling for a new husband and young bucks who, but for happy hour pricing, could not afford to be there. I felt bad for the parties who were seated directly by the bar and noticeably irritated. It was way too loud and busy to enjoy an expensive meal. If we go back, it certainly won't be during happy hour.

    I have been to M on special occasions and each time I thought, well, it was a once a year experience. I really thought the food was not on a level of expectation for such an urbane, highly touted restaurant. It was frankly disappointing. Not bad but not what one is expecting from such an illustrious place. The waitress was really personable but I thought over-extended and thus did not (could not) attend my party as closely as I thought appropriate. I just left feeling, well, lots of money, not so great a meal, not as good service as one thinks such an esteemed restaurant would have but dining at M, big deal, and sooo, once a year maybe. But I'm not sure I'll return.

    This was my first vist to M in Columbus, and I will definitely be back. From start to finish, it was a delightful experience. The server(s) are in tune with your desires and needs as a patron. Some of the top entree choices had mushrooms, so I had to go for my third choice for an entree. It was still tasty. I am neither a native of Columbus, nor do I live there, but I traveled to experience M, and it was well worth it.

    Looked forward to dining at M's, upon arrival we were ushered to the valet and made our entrance into M's. We arrived at opening so there were only a few other guests. This early arrival lead to outstanding service by both the manager and our waitress. Both were personable and informative at explaining the menu. We made our drink and appetizer selections, a nice cabernet and M's version of a Manhattan along with the scallops. We then placed our meal order, steak in a bowl, an odd name, but perfectly descriptive and the end of the season halibut. The drinks were delicious, the scallops were tasty, but @ $18 for 2 a bit pricey. The steak was good but not exceptional, the halibut was dry on the surface and temp wise cooler than expected.

    M was ok, not worth $200 for dinner though. Fish overcooked, salad very good, housemade gin & tonic odd flavor. Restroom is outside restaurant in building lobby - no hand soap, giant roll of paper towels on counter. Overall experience was a little disappointing.

    I got surf and turf roll, shrimp cocktail and sea bass. Sea bass wasn't that great. It's a soup dish, not grill like I was expected. Ocean club and Hollywood were so much better. The chocolate cake was awesome though. Make sure you save some room for it. Oh, and the drinks were good too. Got the black orchid, marquee, and grape crush. Loved everything but the sea bass...

    M is an aesthetically beautiful restaurant where we tend to go for special occasions. Our meal was very good-my husband loved his burger, and my ahi tuna was quite good although we had a little trouble with it being initially too raw, but the staff was happy to take it back and the second time around was just right. The beignets with semi-freddo were to die for. Our server was very nice and helpful, although she had only been on staff for two weeks. My only criticism is that the menu seems to stay the same from year to year, and it is somewhat limited for our tastes. It is also extremely pricey.

    A few negatives: M was out of preferred wine, although I had called earlier in the day to check on availability in general ; 3 out of 4 drinks from bar arrived for toast - 4th one (virgin)came 20-25 minutes later; scallops were room temp at best. 4th wine glass was quickly pulled from the table without asking - then we needed to wait again for a toast until 4th wine glass was returned. Did not expect any of this from such a reputable restaurant. A few positives: Potential for being the perfect spot to celebrate special occasions; ambiance; presentation of entrees

    Decor & service were top notch ... really extra special. The food, while generally very good, seemed to fall from the highs category, however. Specifically the steaks we ordered were under-cooked for our requested medium (the finest restaurants should have good control of this); also the desert seemed a bit bland (still enjoyable, but not impressive). But let me repeat that the decor and service were really of the highest caliber.

    When you reserve a table at a restaurant with this name behind it, your expectations are heightened. There's nothing worse than being let down and so there's nothing better than surpassing your expectations. Just perfect.

    We have dined at M more than any other "big" restaurant in Columbus over the past 5 years - it is just consistently good. Even arriving is a pleasure - so different from most other venues - it sets the scene for a pleasant evening. A great staff, spacious and contemporary bar and dining area compliment a diverse menu and deliciously prepared food. I have never had a dish that wasn't very good. None of this comes inexpensively, but no more than most other high end area eateries in the Short North or German Village areas. Columbus is lucky to have M as a choice for a special night out.

    My husband and I traveled from Cincy to attend a conference in Columbus over the evening of his birthday. I wanted a nice place to celebrate and found M on Open Table. It was our first time at M, and we both thought our experience was excellent. We started by sharing the jumbo shrimp tempura (crisp and delicious) and a salad (fresh and flavorful). We both decided to try one of their featured menu entrees which combined a veal tenderloin and braised veal cheek over an asiago cheese stuffed crepe with vegetables and a wonderful sauce etc. - and it was fabulous! Our service was warm, friendly and attentive. Overall a lovely evening! We'd definitely recommend M for a special meal, and we plan to return on a future visit.

    From the moment you enter M, you know you're going to experience something special. The ambiance is second to none, with crisp white linens, soft lighting, and rather than a sports game playing in the lounge, the film noir classic, Casablanca is one more detail that makes you feel you're in for a treat. Trevor is a fantastic server and was humorous, attentive, and made wonderful recommendations.

    The lobster cones and shrimp appetizers, along with the scallops and salmon entrees, were outstanding. My only complaint was the seating was too close to others - you were hearing their conversations, and the large table next to us was separated by a transparent drape. No privacy.

    M has been in business since the time we moved to Columbus. While the menu has evolved modestly to include a few additional items, the quality remains superb as does attention to the diner's desire and needs. My partner's sensitivity to butter was noted by waitress who brought each of us a loaf of bread (one each with and without light butter) without asking. The entre for each of us was delightful with Veal Mignon truly melting in the mouth. Dialog was delightful in a truly wonderful environment. I would recommend to anyone for a special night out. Thanks to the wonderful team at M for making this night special.

In addition to the food our server was top notch- very attentive, personable & paid meticulous attention to detail- Thank you Trevor for a really fun girls night out!

    We went here to celebrate a birthday! Phenomenal food, excellent service. Our waiter, Keith, really knew his stuff...down to the smallest detail! He was amazing...and even kept checking the score on a football game for us! It is more of an upscale place, but you know that going in (pricing is listed on their online menu, so they don't "hide" that from you). In my opinion, it was well worth the price for the food, atmosphere and service. This place is a definite must-do!

    We were greeted by the staff in a friendly and welcoming manner. We had arrived 30 minutes early but were seated immediately in a booth with a view as requested. Our first negative observation was the selection of music being played and the level of volume being too high. Our waitress Tiffany was very attentive and helpful with menu selections. I should note that this was a Saturday and the restaurant was quite busy. Would reserve this restaurant for special occasions as it is not cheap.

    The service and ambience is outstanding; however, it was just ridiculously over priced and the food was just so so. I had considered taking my granddaughter there for a special treat, but was so disappointed in the prices and quality of the food, I have decided to take her elsewhere. This is my first major disappointment with a Cameron Mitchell restaurant. I think Ocean Club is over priced as well, but would go there again rather than return to "M". Perhaps the point of "M" is to assure that those "not at the top of the food/income chain"
