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.

  • Anniversery Dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    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"

    My wife and I has our 20th wedding anniversary dinner at M and could not be more pleased. The food was outstanding along with the service. Since I had mentioned our anniversary when making a reservation on Open Table the staff made every effort to make the evening special. We will come again when we visit Columbus.

    M restaurant was amazing. We were greeted by the friendly staff as soon as we arrived and they acknowledged my boyfriend's birthday, which i noted on the OpenTable reservation. The table I requested was ready and clean. The food was so good and the wine was delicious. My boyfriend enjoyed his strong mixed drink. The only downside was the noisy table next to us on the patio, drunk women being obnoxious, smoking, and using foul language. However, our waitress moved us to a more secluded table and we had nobfurther issues. I will definitely be back and use OpenTable to reserve a seat!

    My husband rarely raves over the food at restaurants, but we both simply loved the food at this restaurant. He had the pork chop and I had the burger. He also especially liked the vanilla old fashioned. Our server was very nice and polite. Courses were timed correctly. I am definitely glad that we chose this restaurant for our trip to Columbus.

    As any fancy restaurant goes, it was a nice experience, but in the end it will probably be our first and last visit. I got the strawberry salad which was very good and the salmon, which was pretty uneventful. The portion was miniscule, and I could have gotten the same meal at Cap City for half the price! We were celebrating our anniversary so we wanted it to be special and memorable, the atmosphere was nice, and because we were so close to the table next to us I learned all about that couple's blossoming relationship...only because it was easier for me to hear her than it was my husband! I was hoping this would be our yearly anniv. dinner restaurant for but unfortunately I'd rather go back to Marchellas, The Pearl, or Cap City first!

    My wife and I enjoyed our 6th wedding anniversary at M. We were greeted promptly and our table was waiting for us. We were both impressed with the teamwork of all the staff to keep our drinks full, table clean, and food delivered. It was the perfect atmosphere for us as we enjoyed the Sea Bass and the Salmon dinners. They were excellently crafted and beautifully presented. We also treated ourselves to their cake and ice cream for desert. It was the perfect portion size and was also expertly presented. Thank you for an awesome night!

    We asked about drink specials and was told there weren't any, even though a sign at entrance offered $5.00 drink and appetizer specials. When my wife asked for house wine, was told there weren't any. Offered a "good" wine and brought 2 glasses. $16.00 each. People next to us were told of appetizer specials. Unfortunately, we had placed our order. Food was good, people friendly, but felt robbed paying high price for average wine. Many other good places to eat, enjoy wine, and leave with a satisfied feeling. Will not be back here.

    I had a reservation for 8 people at 9pm. I usually call, but this time I made it online and called later to confirm. It still took about an hour to be seated! We all got drinks and waited in the bar area. The staff was very kind and kept saying thank you for being so patient for waiting, but they made no effort or offer to compensate for the time we waited. The food was wonderful as always, and the food service was good, but we were a little disappointed this time.

    I had heard great things about M before our visit, and I'm glad to say that my expectations were fulfilled and then some. We went to M during restaurant week and I got the salmon, which was made to perfection. Everything else was absolutely delicious as well (sushi, cake & ice cream dessert). On top of this, our very attentive server, Amanda, made sure that every aspect of our time here was perfect. Thank you, Amanda! We will definitely be coming back.

    We finally had family watch our kids while my wife and I had date night and used our Cameron Mitchell gift cards. We chose M over the other restaurants simply because of the menu. We felt we could eat healthier and still have a nice night out. The ambiance was perfect for us, no overpowering bright attractions and not very loud but enough background noise that we could talk without worrying about being too loud or sharing our lives with everyone around us. Our waitress was awesome, there when we needed something and she didn't bother us otherwise. The food is the best food I have ever had in Ohio and it would probably be the best dining experience we have ever had except there wasn't a beach. We highly recommend M and we will be back.

    Hated it. Food was cold. Got our orders wrong and other diners had to wait while the rest of us had our food. Then we had to send our food back because it was cold and I mean cold as ice when it was served not because of waiting on the entree correction and the waiter was a jerk about it. Cocktails were awful. Decor is tired and boring. Table was constantly being bumped by waiters and arriving diners. Loud patrons in the bar filtered into the dining room. Not coming back. This was not our first time there. Always loved it before and have taken business clients because of the food and ambiance. Not anymore! :-(

    Dined on 6/26/2014
    The food is great! The portions and prices are on the mark. The ambiance is great for the most part. The service is lacking, not in knowledge, they are just not on top of things. The bartender, before we sat for dinner, forgot my wife's drink. The waiter forgot to bring a beer menu 3 times. He also forgot to stop back by to see if everything was cooked to our liking even though he said he "Will be back in a minute to see that everything is perfect." My pregnant wife sat for twenty minutes with an empty waterglass even though the waiter had an assistant, whose purpose was aiding with such things. In that twenty minutes we never even saw an employee. So the one flaw is service. It's the worst service I have had in a place of this caliber.

    M is regular restaurant on our lists for special occassions, important business and recruitment dinners, and when we want to impress out of town guests. The food is exceptional, always. The speciality cocktails are among the best in our travels around the US and Europe. Wine never disappoints. Service almost always matches our expectations, but this most recent visit our server was a distraction. He was interpersonally awkward, interrupting conversation, intruding to clear plates, and making unprofessional comments. It was not up to the caliber of the M experience. Typically, the server is a well-time, constant but never intrusive presence. This recent experience is a aberration, not the norm for this Columbus gem.
