    It was our first time to visit Mitchell's. We had a very nice experience; the food was very good as was the atmosphere. The service IMO was what stood out the most. Our server (Steven) was outstanding. He was very professional and personable and there was no doubt he enjoyed what he was doing. We shared a very fun evening with him. He provided menu recommendations and he was spot on with each one. Three of us had Filets and one had the Ribeye. My Filet was very tender and melted in my mouth. We shared Calamari and the Oysters Rockefeller for appetizers and mashed potatoes and asparagus as siders, all were delicious. Overall we had a great meal and a great visit with some very special Friends. We will return again in the future.

    I have never been here before but people kept telling me about it and how great it was. So, I decided to have my anniversary there and was astonished by the wine list, how friendly the staff was, it was quiet enough to just have a casual conversation and not need to be loud. The ambiance was great and I've never had a a better experience at a restaurant.

    My wife and I choose Mitchell's Steak House to celebrate our 38th anniversary anticipating an exceptional evening. We were not disappointed. We found the atmosphere (especially the music) only exceeded by the service and the food. The special attention given to us for our anniversary specifically, a complimentary photo and free desert was a nice touch without being overbearing.

    Mitchell's Steakhouse experience starts before entering the restaurant. As we pulled up it was nice to see complimentary valet parking available. The entry door was opened for us giving that feeling of being expected and honored. The staff took great care seeing to our every need right down to special requests of menu item substitutions. We never had to seek out assistance as our waiting team was always close at hand. The food arrived well prepared and presented in a timely but not rushed manner. Although the lobster tail was less than expected in size every bite was delicious, as were the chipotle fingerling potatoes. By the end of the evening I was well satisfied and happy for the experiences of the evening.

    Dinner with and old friend. I had the filet and lobster, I asked for medium and it was rare (red/cold) in the center. He had the scallops and they were cold and not cooked to his liking. Sides we just ok, for dessert I had the molten cake and it to was cold, not hot gooey chocolate runny inside. I didn't complain as I was with someone I hadn't seen Ina long time and we were catching up/talking. Otherwise, Service was slow, place was not busy, probably will not return

The food is consistently fabulous, the wait staff top notch, and the ambiance and decor superb. This past visit we even received a personalized birthday wish at the top of our menus, and a generous gift card to use on our next visit. As if it wasn't always fantastic, well that just knocked it out of the park!

    Service was very good. My filet was cooked perfectly, but it was ever so slightly stringy, which was disappointing. My wife's filet was also cooked perfectly and was flawless. The herb butter applied to the steaks was forgettable. The lobster tail was very good, well seasoned, and adequately prepared. The ambience was a bit noisy and fairly active. Several old friends paused right beside our table to say hello and catch up. Overall, it's a nice place with good food and service. I would definitely go back.

    I use to eat out a lot, all over the world actually. I only ate at fine restaurants. Since this was my wife's 60th birthday and we had won some gift certificates, we decided to go out to Mitchell's. From the bartender's excellent mixing of a Jack Daniels & water and the EXCELLENT service to the broad selections of courses to fine food, Mitchell's is everything you want for an evening out with your loved one or a special occasion. The atmosphere is also perfect for a business meeting. Congratulations to all of involved with the dining experience--you do it well!

    We Went there to celebrate our first anniversary. We was seated fast and dealt with kindness from the moment we walked in. The staff was very eager to please. They have a menu that has things I would have never tried, But going out on a limb was well worth it. They went over an beyond by giving us a gift and card for our anniversary. I would recommend them to anyone. I do believe it's more an adult setting so find a sitter and enjoy an evening out with the wife. I will go back.

    I eat at this establishment several times a year for special occasions and business dinners...Friday was the first time I've left feeling like I won't go back/recommend Mitchells any time soon. Food was below expectation, service was ok to a notch below, and the "experience" was the real let down. Generally when I spend north of $100 a head my expectation is to leave the restaurant feeling like I got what I paid for. In fairness to Mitchells the food almost always is better than what I experienced Friday, the atmosphere is usually different and the "experience" is usually above average for this restaurant category. Unfortunately for us, Friday wasn't Mitchells best.

    This was fantastic! It's more expensive than your typical steakhouse but as I've always said, "you get what you pay for". Every item ordered was the best we have ever had...even the House salad! The atmosphere was very nice. The U-shaped, dark leather dinner booths reminded me of the Big Band era or the Tommy-Gun era. The staff was relaxed just enough to give you an upper-scale restaurant along with a friendly atmosphere. We actually enjoyed talking with the waiter and waitress (she was in training). It costs $120 for my wife and I to eat Filet Mignon steak with salads, including tip. Much more than what I typically pay for dinner but just can't wait to go back!! I love it!

    We went early and seemed to be about the first couple seated. Our waiter was wonderful, we were both anticipating nice steaks and I wanted to taste some nicer red wine. The waiter guided me through a Merlot and Cab Sav from Bordeaux, nice selections both. He seemed enthusiastic about our options and when we got to dessert, despite my interest in a much more expensive Cognac, he instead guided me to a cordial that blended perfectly with the cheesecake. Our waiter took care that we enjoyed ourselves, and I appreciated how he deftly steered me toward something he knew I would enjoy more, which really made me feel like he cared that we enjoyed the experience.

    We had a wonderful dining experience at the Mitchell's Steakhouse Polaris! Very easy to find. Valet parking. Terrific guest service right away! Loved the very clean less cluttered look than other restaurants we have been to previously. Prompt service throughout the evening. Our waitress was fabulous! The food was amazing! I enjoyed the steak and shrimp scampi. Delicious! The scampi was served on top of the steak with more of a garlic butter cream. You could still taste the jumbo shrimp as it was not masked by a heavy garlic butter sauce. Was not like anything I have seen before-finally! The apple bread pudding is a must for dessert!!!!

    We were visiting Columbus and searched on line for a restaurant and saw the rave reviews for Mitchell's so we made reservations in advance. The reviews were not over exaggerated!!! The food was superb, a wonderful blend of spices and seasonings to arouse sleeping flavors in every bite from the appetizers to desserts. The food is top shelf, great quality steak and seafood and the service outstanding. We have traveled around the world and would rank this meal experience in the top 10 memorable meals in our lives.

We just paid up but they should really change their name or reflect in the name they are not affiliated with Cameron Mitchell restaurants.

    This was our first time to visit Mitchell's Steakhouse, and it will not be our last. My wife and I were greeted graciously. Our waiter and sommelier, Jeff, provided excellent descriptions of how the food was prepared and was very knowledgeable regarding the extensive beverage opportunities. The food was nicely prepared and presented - very tasty! And, the prices were surprisingly reasonable. We enjoyed a leisurely dinner with never a hint of being rushed. All in all, it was a pleasant and relaxing dining experience.
