Martini Modern Italian
Excellent service and excellentExcellent service and excellent food quality. Ordered one of the dinner specials (8 oz. filet), which was excellent but not worth the price tag. Music playing in restaurant was odd and louder than a dinner crowd would normally expect, especially for the type of music that was playing.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGood downtown location; easyGood downtown location; easy walk if alrady in downtown.

Had to beg to get the bill.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good choiceMartini's is always fabulous, I had the short rib and could have gone back the next day to have it again! It was so tender and flavorful without being too rich. Everyone in our party enjoyed their meals and we had a lovely time.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Restaurant in Columbus!Martini continues to be our favorite restaurant in Columbus! We had an excellent evening starting with happy hour cocktails, then dinner! Everyone from the bartenders, hosts, chefs, and managers continue to deliver amazing service! Thank to the chef for accommodating some of our special dietary needs! We will be back soon!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMStaffVery pleasant and helpful when asked about food recommendations! Always smiling!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMet my high expectationsWhen I think of Cameron Mitchell Restaurants, I think of luxury and fanciness. Martini met those expectations and the price tag that comes with it. Food was delicious and the scene in the Short North was awesome.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMfood reviewThe waiter knew his stuff. The food was really good. Had butternut squash torteliini and spinich and veil ravioli. Only one concern was how long it took to check out. Other than that very very good.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing service and foodWe always try to go here for special occasions and have never had a bad meal. The drinks appetizers, salads, entrees and desserts are all delicious! The service and food is wonderful!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent meal all around!We have eaten at many excellent restaurants and my husband said it was the best meal he has ever had from appetizer to dessert. The noise level is high and it was hard to hear the waitress even, but I look at it as lively and energetic.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMartini's never disappoints.Martini's never disappoints. The food was great and so was the service.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe will be back!First time in Columbus, visiting for Avett Bros show over Memorial Day. Looked for a restaurant for my better half and I to enjoy. Gorgeous atmosphere, though the tables were tight up against one another. My chair kept touching the back of my neighbor's. No big deal - neither of us were concerned. BF and I got the tenderloin after our waiter, Ben, shared that it had been awarded "Best Steak in Columbus". One of the best steaks I ever had! Ben was great. So very knowledgeable about the menu items & details behind them. Antipasto was out of this world too. Only complaint: there could be more wines by the glass. We elected to drink liquor due to lack of wine selection. When we come back to Columbus we will definitely visit Martini again!5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMappetizers seemed overpricedappetizers seemed overpriced (2 scallops for $16).5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional ServiceI recently took my parents here for a special occasion, and couldn't have asked for a better experience. The food was amazing and the service was outstanding. One of my favorite restaurants in Columbus.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMA warm Friday nightWith the windows open to High Street traffic, and the bar packed, the noise level was more than "energetic"; it was extremely loud. Conversation was nearly impossible without yelling across the table. The hostess was very willing to re-seat us. Food is good; service is friendly and fast.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulousGreat bartender, wonderful server, outstanding food. And to top it all off they have wifi! I had a great pear elderflower martini and the beat salad was so good and they were kind enough to give me the recipe. Next time I'm in Columbus I will absolutely return.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBest place in Columbus!Simply the best restaurant we have eaten at in Columbus. Took my wife there for a Mother's Day Brunch and ate from the regular menu and SO glad we did. Everything was just fantastic. My wife has already said this is where she wants to go for her birthday. We had the panzella salad and panzenetta which were both great balances of sweet, salty, crunchy and soft textures. Forget the name of my dish but it was pasta with shrimp in a spicy tomato sauce. It was just the right balance of heat. I never even thought about needing any salt or pepper because it was all simply seasoned perfectly.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceWent to Martini's with a group prior to a Volleyball tournament. The food was excellent and the service was as well. Plenty of food and even available in half portions! This was an excellent find in walking distance to the Convention Center and many hotels!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalVery good food especially desert ,very busy and it began to get a little loud so get there early on the weekend.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, great serviceI can't say I've ever experienced a bad meal or server at this place!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten at Martini fourWe have eaten at Martini four or five times in the past- we return because the food is always good and service attentive. This time, the wait staff, was curt, slow and less than the professional standard a restaurant of this quality deserves. We will return, but this was a special occasion and I left feeling disappointed.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality of food was not commensuratQuality of food was not commensurate with the price5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThank youMy family was celebrating our daughter's graduation from grad school and wanted a special night. We had heard about Martini's so we decided to try it. It was outstanding. First Class. Our waiter was exceptional, guiding us along the menu and giving us great suggestions. And his knowledge of the wine menu was excellent, suggesting a perfect wine. I can't wait to head back to Columbus for another celebration so we can go back to Martini's.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my family and friendsI took my family and friends there for my daughters graduation dinner, the food and service were excellant. A very relaxing enjoyable dining experience.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSurprisedI was surprised at the Quality of the food after reading other reviews
We shared the Antipasta platter, the Panzella and Butternut Tortelini and loved it all
The Short North Ice Tea was refreshing. We did think $12 a drink was expensive5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ladies night outWindows were open in the bar area bringing in a nice breeze. Seating area a little cramped- tables are fairly close together.
Tuscan Peach martini VERY GOOD! Ahi tuna dish very good. Others ordered lasagna,chicken parm and pasta carbonara. Everyone enjoyed their food. Great portions for the price.
Read online about dress code and dressed appropriately. People in there had on shorts and flip flops. Only downside, server was pretty busy and not as attentive as usual Cameron Mitchell restaurants.
All in all very good food.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAverageThe main course was average at best. The salmon was hard and tasteless. The tenderloin was overcooked. The salad, appetizers and drinks were good.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAppreciate them accomodatingAppreciate them accomodating a large group. Liked the reservation reminder call the day of the reservation.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food here is outstanding,The food here is outstanding, always the same great taste.

Never disappointed with this restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I went to dinnerMy wife and I went to dinner there. The food was fantastic. I had the lasagna which was great.

Plenty of staff on hand, very knowlageable about their food. We'll be returning!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMMartini's is one of my favoriteMartini's is one of my favorite places to dine downtown. I had a 5pm reservation for 2 on a Tuesday and the restaurant was not busy. We were originally seated at a 2 person booth but I immediately asked to be moved as it was way too small. We dined at a 4 top table in the upper level that looks over the restaurant. I have been at Martini’s later in the evening and it can get very loud, but on this occasion the volume was okay. The food was of course wonderful, I had the chicken carbanara which is my usual and my guest had the filet. The Black Cherry Manhattan keeps me coming back. Our server was a little sloppy when pouring our drinks at the table (splashing out everywhere) but that is my only complaint about this visit. Overall very good4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great. Service wasFood was great. Service was perfect. Wonderful ambiance.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMI chose this restaurant fromI chose this restaurant from this site and hoped for the best and the best I got. It was just what I was looking for to celebrate a birthday with friends. Our waitress was awesome and the food was terrific. Even the drinks were top notch. Match that with a great atmosphere and it was an overall perfect experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous place. Greeted warmly,Fabulous place. Greeted warmly, seated quickly, service was remarkable, and the food was spectacular. Bravo....!
The only downside was the constant thumping from the night club below.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere, great serviceGreat atmosphere, great service and great menu!!!
Everything on the menu and described by our server sounded incredible.
All of the items we chose were very good but are also things I probably
would not order again. The homemade mozzarella was too stringy instead of soft and spreadable,the lamb dish - the sauce was reduced and so thick it became sweet and too rich,
the steak was perfectly cooked but was over powered by the sauce making it also just
too rich. The tuna was cooked perfectly and presented beautifully but needed more
flavorful accompaniments. Yes, I am being picky and we will go back and try different
dishes now knowing the style of the kitchen. The service was outstanding and I would recommend this place to friend4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMTry the house made mozzarellaObviously a great place for a martini -- many very creative and interesting combinations on the martini menu. One of my friends had a some sort of "manhattan" martini garnished with dried cherries...it was fantastic.
The house made mozzarella was excellent. It was served with toast, basil pesto and dried tomatoes -- great take on the classic!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMartini is our favorite restaurantMartini is our favorite restaurant in Columbus! Every-time we dine at Martini it gets better and better! Thanks for yet another great evening!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe hostess and wait staffThe hostess and wait staff were excellent. The wine that was suggested was outstanding.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe happened upon the SundayWe happened upon the Sunday 50% discount off all bottles of wine, which provided an extra treat on an already fabulous meal. Each of the four entrees we ordered was cooked to perfection, and there is no doubt we will be back often.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a special eveningMartini is an all-around superb choice for an evening out. I sent my parents to the restaurant for a surprise special night out and they were thrilled with the experience. I needed a partner in crime to plan the details and found one in Kristin at the Cameron Mitchell offices. She helped me purchase a gift card and made sure it was waiting at the table upon my parents’ arrival. The gift card was presented with a lovely personalized card from their grandsons and me – the perfect touch.
The food was beautiful and delicious – my mother is still raving about the fresh mozzarella and pesto. The service, my parents reported, was professional and helpful, but not overbearing. They brought a favorite bottle of wine, which was uncorked f4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service!We always go to Martini's when we are in the Short North. They have wonderful food and great service. The waiters/waitresses know the menu well and make sure you are taken care of! Love this place! My husband always order the filet mignon and it's fabulous.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelisiousness!!My husband and I had a wonderful dinner! Service was exceptional - our server ( I wish I remembered her name) was informative and well versed on the menu and wine list. The beets were extraordinary, the Lamb Papadelle was succulent and it was all washed down by a bright Chianti.
We will definately be back the next time we are in Columbus.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Birthday to me!!!Celebrated my birthday at Martini and couldn't have had a better time.
