    Jim was our waiter and he did a great job. My husband and I split 2 meals and that was done in the kitchen at the server's suggestion. The food was delicious but could have been hotter. It was served hot but cooled off quickly. This was especially evident the next night when we went to Ruth's Chris. They served the meals on very hot plates so the food retained the heat for a longer time.

    This was our first time to Mitchell's and we couldn't be happier. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary and it truly made the experience memorable. Great food, service, ambiance, and most of all, it was quiet enough that you could hear the person next to you talking.

    My girlfriend and I both enjoyed dining here. I had not been to Mitchell's in a while but they still exceeded expectations. Besides great food and environment this visit I learned they have a menu which helped my girlfriend who has celiacs and can't eat gluten, and the staff was especially friendly. Highly recommended, and I look forward to visiting again.

    My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Mitchell's. I had been looking forward to enjoying a great steak, so I was very disappointed that the meal fell short of my expectations. They undercooked it initially. After 2 attempts to get it right, the steak ended up a little overcooked for my tastes. The staff handled the matter appropriately; however, was still disappointed. Next time, I'll probably go to Hyde Park or The Ocean Club. My rating would be 3 1/2 stars if possible.

    My husband and I frequent Mitchell's quite a bit. The waiter even recognizes us and practically remembers our order. It was a great atmosphere as usual and my husband's meal seemed fine. I order the wedge salad and tuna appetizer every time. Neither was great for me this time...which is rare. The wedge had some of the outer lettuce you normally don't use with very little toppings and dressing and the tuna has a sauce that this time was unbearably hot/spicy. We will return as we always enjoys this restaurant.

    A friend of mine suggested this restaurant as I visit Columbus often, but never had the pleasure of dining there. I owe this friend. This was one of the most pleasurable experiences I've had in terms of dining. The wine list was great and the wine we selected was excellent. Both diners we selected were at the top of our taste lists. The service was extraordinary.....we never were wanting for anything. All in all, Mitchell's will be at the top of our Columbus restaurant list. Very much looking forward to our next visit.

    As usual, we had a great meal. The lobster bisque was a great starter as were the crab cakes. We added scallops to our steaks and the chef came out to ask how we wanted them prepared. He seemed excited to cook them a certain way, we trusted his judgement and were glad we did. Yes, you will spend more here than your average steakhouse, but it has always been worth it. We had an excellent dining experience and would highly recommend it.

    This was our first visit to this location and we are glad we went. I had the swordfish with the sundried tomato butter and the smoky chipotle potatoes. My wife had the filet with lobster tail and mac&cheese. Both meals were excellent. I highly recommend the swordfish. The honey cinnamon cheesecake was the perfect way to top of the meal. The wait staff was professional and attentive. We will be back.

    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.

    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.

    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!
