great meal, great foodWe arrived early because we had tickets to an 8:00 PM show. We were sat inside, but moved outside upon our request when drinks arrived. It was mostly empty when we arrived, but had a nice crowd by 7:00.
House made Tonic for the gin was fabulous, and the food was top notch as we expect from Mitchell.
We'll return.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always...As always, Cameron Mitchell does a superb job. We have often dined at the other Mitchell restaurants, but this was our first visit to M. It certainly did not disappoint. The staff, as in all his other restaurants, is extremely courteous and knowledgeable. It is clear that people enjoy working there and that taking care of guests is the top priority. Because we often visit our daughter in NYC, we find ourselves comparing fine Columbus restaurants with those in Manhattan and Brooklyn. CameronMitchell's restaurants, especially M, compare very favorably with those world reknown places. Bravo!6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe MThe M was very nice and I found the servers looked great and their service matched. The menu was very upscale and offered a nice variety. For those who enjoy a nice cocktail that menu was fantastic. I also loved the ambiance. It was a very clean and soft feeling restaurant. I have no complaints and I highly recommend this place.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMfabulous special occasion diningThe food was superb! Everyone in our party was very pleased with the selections and especially enjoyed the "special" that evening.
Even though our party was large we felt like we had our own room and not too close to others, we were able to have conversations amongst ourselves without having other table conversations intrude on us.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful dinnerHad dinner here for the first time before going to see Wicked... waitress was terrific - service was impeccable - food was delicious!!! We will be back again and again!!!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous!My favorite Columbus restaurant and in my top 10 in the US! Always impeccable service and delicious, creative meal options. Love the surf & turf sushi!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMo M g !!!!M is aMazing. The food was so great I almost felt guilty eating it. The salmon melted in my mouth, the king crab appetizer was perfectand easy to eat (completely de-shelled), and the lobster mashed potatoes side dish was so delicious and enough for the wholetable to share. The birthday surprise treat called off the perfect evening a6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in ColumbusThis is one of the best, if not the best, in Columbus. Service was super. David made us feel that he really cared that we had a great time.aA feeling that they wanted to please was evident. Wine list is great. Cocktails are super. Food is well thought out and prepared with first class ingredients.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMperfect eveningHave gone to M's for mostly special occasions. we went for our 25th, was great as usual. Food and drinks were very good, great atmosphere, did not feel rushed, nice quiet dinner. They also made us feel somewhat special , gave us a free desert for our 25th which was very nice.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMService continues to stand outM's staff, from valet to host to wait, continues to be outstanding in attention to detail and attention to guests. The food continues to be fairly average, in my experience. The sea bass was good but not outstanding. However, one chooses a venue for more than the food and when ambiance is considered, M is still one of the very few (painfully few) choices in Columbus to enjoy a satisfying dining experience. The decor is pleasing; however, the white curtains do deter from a more open view to the outside and the bright white is a bit stark. I'm not sure of the purpose of the cloth. I find M to be a wonderful choice in Columbus, whether for special personal moments or business-related dinners.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMM - magnificent marvelous magicalWe moved to the Columbus not too long ago from NY/NJ area, having been to restaurants around that area, we were wondering if we were going to find a restaurant that would take the challenge and we did..
M's menu seems to have a nice variety for everyone's taste, wine list is above par and the mixed drinks ( we only ordered one, the marquee, and it was delicious) but I'm sure the rest are just great.
1st visit we had the Halibut and salmon, king crab ( I think this is their signature dish) they were all delicious. Staff is very friendly and the location has a contemporary look and you can even eat at their balcony area. perfect for a romantic dinner.
I will definitely go back, M has escalated to my #1 restaurant in Cbus.
Jav5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMObviously upscale dining,Obviously upscale dining, so pricey but very good. Atmosphere friendly and open, service excellent and choice plentiful. Did not expect sushi that good in Columbus!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful foodThis was our first visit to this restaurant. The food was wonderful and service was very good. We had a very pleasant special occasion evening. We have two complaints. We were seated at a round table which was surounded by a curtain. The tablecloth was not ironed and the white curtain was filthy. I tried to not look at it but it didn't work. At a restaurant of this level, attention to detail is very important. We will return again and again but will not sit at that round table.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently one of the bestM is one of the best high end restaurants in the Columbus area. The service is excellent, and the food is high quality with the menu always evolving. Perfect t for celebrating those seci life events or to really make a great first impression. We will continue us to go to M and recommend it to our friends.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFood good. Service a littleFood good. Service a little disjointed, they compensated with taking off cost of coffee and salads which was very cool. Great "Sidecar" one of the best in Columbus. Can't disappoint with desert , the coffee & donuts, perfect5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways impressiveThe food was impressive as always. My husband and I went to celebrate our anniversary and were not disappointed.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM"M" - don't ever change"M" is the only restaurant in Columbus that provides an experience worthy of the special occasion you're celebrating. A bold, but certainly true statement. Surely there are other excellent restaurants in the city. However, none have delightfully entertained my attention like "M". The food is pure and fascinating. My wife, for instance, will order the tamest of items (e.g. mac & cheese) simlpy for curiousity sake just to see the interpretation. Needless to say, she is always impressed. I should also add that pretentiousness, contraty to the uninformed, is not present at "M". One example...donuts and coffee icream. No pomp...just good taste. Perhaps that's the truest review. "M" has inspired dang good taste...sit back and enjoy.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNew spring menuWe were able to order from the new spring menu. As usual, everything was excellent.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!My wife and I went to M for our anniversary. The service was attentive from the beginning.

We were seated in a very intimate booth and
Has roses on our table. Our waitress was excellent. I wish I remembered her name but she was one of the best servers I've ever had. We had the scallops for a starter-amazing. I had the apple salad next. It was delicious although larger than I'd hoped. We both ordered the steak in a bowl entree. Both were cooked to perfection. The sauce in the bottom was very good yet very rich. There were a few thinly slices fingerling potatoes in the bowl. Not really enough to be considered a side. We were surprised our waitress didn't offer a side. But we were glad we didn't order one because we were stuffed. we were given a complimentary dessert...4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience.Wonderful dining experience.

Everyone in our group raved about the restaurant.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique martinis continue toUnique martinis continue to stand out. Main menu is a nice mix of staples prepared with flair.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile Columbus is not a diningWhile Columbus is not a dining hot spot, M is a very pleasant restaurant with good to very good food. A couple of the appetizers were outstanding (foie gras and pork belly on lentils is a highlight). The main courses we had were well executed but not perfect. For instance, the salmon entree was perfectly cooked with a nice tomato pesto on top. However, the gnocchi accompanying the salmon were chewy and had clearly sat around for too long. The sauce had too much butter/cream in it--which was unnecessary as the flavors were excellent. If you need a nice spot in Columbus, I would highly recommend M.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous! Great ambiance,Fabulous! Great ambiance, great service, and delicious food with nice presentation to boot. Enjoyed the varied menu and look forward to visiting again to try something new!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMClassyThe food, service, and ambiance at M are all first-rate.

The maître d' and server took special care of my mother-in-law (gave her a free desert, my 11 year old son, my wife and I. This is the second time at M and it was even better than the first time. I highly recommend the restaurant.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMI dine at M three to fourI dine at M three to four times a year and its always great! When family or friends come to Columbus, I bring them to M.
From start to finish, always a great experience and great food.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeExcellent service. Took my wife for our anniversary. The staff was tremendous . I wont go into the whole story but due to a miscommunication the staff let us walk out without the bill being paid (it was being covered by our friends). Our friends did get back and pay later but the fact that they didnt want to spoil our evening and could have potentially lost money but never said anything is a testament to customer service. The veal is out of this world. My wife has food allergies and they took care of it without a hitch. Wonderful place cant wait to get back.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAnthony was incredibly attentiveAnthony was incredibly attentive to us and made wonderful recommendations; it was nice to have a knowledgable server, especially after we had a long day with work. The cocktails were delicious - between the 3 of us we tried the Black Orchid, Vanilla Old Fashioned, and a Vodka Tonic (made with their homemade tonic water) - and each of them got rave reviews; I copied the Old Fashioned's ingredients so I can try to make it when I get home. We ordered the Pork Chop, Steak Bowl, and Lamb; each of them was cooked to our server's recommendations and each plate was cleaned. The Pork Chop was the biggest piece I have seen in my life and was so delicous. We will certainly return to this restaurant again!3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe most amazing experienceThe most amazing experience you will have at a restaurant.
