Obviously 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 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.

Food outstanding service impeccable .a must for anyone traveling to Columbus!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe visited Columbus and dinedWe visited Columbus and dined again at M Restaurant. As always, the service and ambiance were simply outstanding....very attentive and courteous. The food this time was not as great as the first time. Last June, I rated our meal as one of the best we have ever had and we live in the Nation's Capital where have dined at plenty of fine restaurants. The sauce on the chicken (entree) was delicious but the meat was not as tender as it should have been. My husband's salmon was a tad overcooked and the sauce (lentil, I believe) on my appetizer (pork belly) was quite oily,...this was delicious last June. The restaurant was packed when we got there and so that may be the reason for the off-night. Anyway, I would still go back to M.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFriday DiningAs always M restaurant did a fantastic job! The veal was to die for and the prok chop was excellent!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMI had steak in a bowl andI had steak in a bowl and fiance and i both agreed...it was DIVINE.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful experienceI notes in my online reservation it was our anniversary. 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.

The staff was friendly, funny,and waited on our group without interrupting conversations. Beautiful restaurant, delicious food. 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.

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.

I continually state it is the best filet in the city. Hands down it beats all the steak houses. Always prepared perfectly and tastes amazing. The special fish dish was great.

The appetizer (prawns) and side dish (lobster mashed potatoes) were phenomenol. The entree (lamb) was good but not great, especially given the price. In fact, M charges more for lamb than does the Refectory, even though the latter's lamb is superior. All in all, a pleasurable evening.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing! ProbablyThe food was amazing! Probably the best meal I have ever had. The filet was tender, seasoned well, and perfect! The tempura shrimp appetizer and lobster mashed potatoes were delicious! I loved the extensive wine list and that you could order a half bottle of wine. The ambiance was awesome!
The only problem with the restaurant was how close the tables were to each other. I am not sure if I can talk my husband into going back for that reason.2/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
