  • Poor service, slow and inattentive
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 9/19/2014
    Restaurant was beautiful, dinner was delicious but our server was simply awful. Our server was very slow to greet us we were seated for nearly 10 minutes before he came by. He was slow to get our drinks to us as well as everything else. He didn't come back to check on us at all. I honestly believe that it was because my husband and I appear to be very young. It was clear that this man did not want to wait on us. Very disappointed.

    We sat outside. It was a beautiful night and our server was pretty good (available but non intrusive). It was noisier outside then expected (loud cars, kids) but that wasn't Oscar's fault. The food wasn't special. We had the cheese plate, filet and ribeye. The best thing about the food was the bread! Oh and the cheesecake was tasty. We were very excited to try a new place but I don't think we'll be back.

    We are from out of town & didn't have any familiarity with the restaurants in Dublin. We selected Oscars because it was one of the few Dublin restaurants that could accommodate a party of 8 at the last minute. It was excellent. Why it wasn't busier we all can't understand. Everything (food, drinks, menu diversity, service) was great. We request the owner open a location in a Phoenix so we can go again.

    We had a wedding in the area and went on Open Table to find dinner for a night. Perfect weather. Outdoor dining. Very good food. The fried oyster appetizer was amazing. My walleye was very good. The veal was great. No complaints. Priced normally for that type of restaurant. A happy find.

    This restaurant is alway consistent in quality, service and value. Even though I live in the New Albany area, I have no qualms about driving to the other side of town to eat at Oscar's. It is a consistent winner and well-priced....certainly a good value for the money and several notches above others that charge a much as 30-60% more for the same food, wine and desserts.

    We went for our anniversary dinner Friday night. Our server, an older guy, seemed distracted & overwhelmed. He rushed us with all ordering & when he would ask any question like "how is everything" & "would you like dessert" he walked away before we could respond. The food and cocktails were delicious & we would definitely recommend this place. However, they should not schedule that server for busy nights. He didn't seem he could handle it.

    We dined here for my Mother's 86 birthday on Saturday night and were very pleased. Each of our group of 6 commented on the exceptional food quality and taste; and the server was friendly, funny and attentive, without being intrusive. Seating at the round table near the front window was a plus for this group size. Would prefer more natural light though opening of the shades, but other than that, it was a perfect dining experience. Thank you.

  • Sit Outside And Enjoy the Fish
    DarylVIP
    Dined on 8/8/2014
    This restaurant is "known for the walleye", which is good, but if you want a real treat try the sea bass with the mushroom risotto. We sat outside, and a few tables away from the road to reduce any potential noise. Our server was very helpful in aiding our selection among the myriad fish dishes, and we agree that the sea bass was the best among them. We skipped dessert as the menu didn't really appeal to us, and opted for more "liquid dessert" instead, which was fueled nicely from the wine list. The reason for the 3 stars vs. the 4 is the price for the entrees was a little higher than we expected, especially given the local competition of good restaurants.

    The dining at Oscars was awesome. We had the Walleye which is what they are known for. Another person had the crispy salmon and it was delicious. Then the last dish someone had was the pork loin. Everything was delicious. Their bread was so good as well. We will definitely be returning.

    My first time to Oscar's. Food was fantastic and not incredibly expensive. It was a little louder in there than I expected, but the place was packed. Good place for a dinner date out with the spouse or a small group of friends, but not "overly romantic" if that's what you're looking for. We got great service, food came out fast and it was delicious. Can't ask for much more.

    Twice in a row, a very average overall experience at this place. Last time we left before we even got our entrees, this time we did wait it out. Sat almost an hour before they came and there were 3 other filled table other than us in the entire place. Wife got the crispy salmon which was actually 'wilted' not sure what they did to that. This isn't the same place that was here a few years back - must have either new management or ownership. Too many other great choices in Columbus. Don't waste your money or time.

    Oscar's Creative American Cuisine really does a fantastic job with great food combinations and choices. Every dish is a pretty good size portion on top of it being very delicious. If there was an Oscar version of an award for best restaurant Oscar's would definitely win for the creative dishes category. Not very vegetarian friendly menu but they did a great job to accommodate my sister and her husband who are both vegetarians who came to my birthday dinner at Oscar's. They can easily modify some dishes to make it vegetarian but it would be really hard for a vegan to find something suitable to eat besides their salads. Sitting outside on the patio gives a charming view of Old Historic Dublin and while listening to musicians play live music.

    Oscar's has been a long time favorite even when I didn't live here and was coming in to Dublin to visit or coming for the Memorial golf tournament. The ambience, particularly out doors in the summertime is terrific. The menu is old and tired although they tout the "creative American food" slogan. I'd like to go there more often but they need to get on with more creative offerings. Other than that, great place.
