This is a regular on our list. We went this time for lunch for my birthday and the special for St. Patrick's day: corned beef and cabbage. It was well worth the trip. We will be back.

We were really impressed by
We were really impressed by the food and drink selection at the Worthington Inn. The wine list was great (for Columbus, probably average for Chicago, et al).
The food was outstanding. We have a soft spot for locally sourced ingredients. The Worthington Inn impressed beyond belief. We started with an excellent cheese plate, then had the roast chicken and the pork two-ways. Incredibly flavors and textures throughout the meal. Perfectly done.
Another note worth mentioning, the scotch selection was superb and one of the better ones in Ohio. They have a couple that go beyond the standard run that's out there.

Brought some family visiting
Brought some family visiting from out of town to dine here. They absolutely loved it! It was a perfect evening! Service was polite and prompt but not too intruding. Our table had both entrees from the menu as well as the nights seafood and steak special- everyone was pleased! Spectacular desserts including the cloudless chocolate torte and a berry crostini!
My grandparents especially loved the history and the charm of the Inn and liked hearing ghost stories from both our waitress and the chef. Overall, everything was perfect- it was a wonderful "Grand Finale Dinner" for our guests visit! This restaurant is a treasure and a great place to impress visiting friends with both its fantastic menu and its cozy and historic atmosphere!

Really, a special place
Consistently excellent, our favorite special occasion restaurant. Food is very well prepared and presented, the restaurant is quiet enough for easy conversation (especially in the back two rooms), the ambience in the historic inn warm and inviting, the service hits the sweet spot of professional yet friendly--fine dining, but comfortable, not in the least pompous; prices are reasonable given the quality. We have never failed to enjoy ourselves here, and have had some evenings that were truly memorable.

I have been to the Worthington
I have been to the Worthington inn many times, but this was more busy than it has ever been while I have been there which made it a lot louder than normal, but it was still a nice night, and a great dinner!

Another Wonderful Dining Experience
As always, we had a wonderful meal. I had the Santa Fe veggie burger and it was wonderful. My wife ordered of the Earth Week menu and had the chicken over polenta and thought it was fantastic. We sat on the porch - a perfect spot to people watch while dining.

Took quite a while to locate
Took quite a while to locate champagne. Did finally found a bottle and it was very good. Just slow service at beginning. Many meals were very good button basic salmon was overcooked. Very pretty decor and friendly staff.

The chef is an artist with flavors. I enjoyed every bite.
4/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a good choice
The menu changes with the seasons, but the result is always consistent. A great meal. The wine list has many great options at some some of the best prices in town.

A lovely celebration spot
We had a double celebration of a birthday and anniversary and the Worthington Inn more than accommodated our delectable palates. The entire menu was well selected and everything was superbly timed and arrived hot and delicious. I enjoyed the lamb chops with couscous (a bit too many olive halves) and had bites of the tomato bisque. Our children (3 and 1) were very well taken care of and were considered first class citizens by all of the staff. Overall a very nice place with old world appeal.

Great anniversary diner
Each year on our wedding anniversary we like to try a new resturaunt. We were certainly not disappointed with our dinners. We split a salad and an appetizer which both were plenty large enough to do so. I had the best steak I've ever had, cooked to perfection! And my wife enjoyed a uniquely mixed ravioli with locally raised ingredients.
We will return for sure!

We had a lovely evening. Worthington Inn repast is exquisite. When we asked for more bread we received it quickly. We are pescatarians and found that the fish and vegatable entrees were delightful. Even though it was mentioned that the chef doesn't like to change parts of the meal, Bea has some allergies and she was accommodated. The $15 enticement brought us there on a Monday night.

Always a Treat
As always, we thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Worthington Inn. Brunch there is always delicious, and there is always something different to enjoy. This week we encountered their cheese blintzes for the first time, and I hope not for the last time. They were incredible! The staff there are all charming, the restaurant is beautifully decorated. We just always enjoy our meals there so much!

We requested a quiet table which was honored. They were not busy at the time so it was easy to make this possible. It was a lovely atmosphere, good food and service. A favorite place for a special lunch.

We enjoyed our dinner at the Inn. Good food, good friends and fun. We were surprised when leaving though that the place was completely empty at 9:30 on a Sat. night.

Great spot for a late lunch
Four of us from different areas of Columbus get together for lunch and we chose the WI partly because it's easily accessible from almost anywhere. Our lunch was at 1:00 and by then whatever crowd they had was gone, so we had the place nearly to ourselves. Our server was very pleasant and unobtrusive and allowed us to take our time ordering. Two of us had the southwestern chicken salad, one the Reuben and one a halibut sandwich. All were very generous portions, and very, very good. Everyone enjoyed her lunch and would certainly recommend the WI. I have eaten dinner there several times and always look forward to it. It's certainly one of Columbus's best.

You'll love the veggie platter. Excellent variety & beautiful presentation.
8/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
We dined at the Worthington Inn on Sat. Aug. 10th.Mathew gave us excellent service . The food was superb.! My wife said it was the best salmon that she ever had and her pasta was perfect . Her cucumber soup was to die for!!!.
I had the corn & potato chowder which was excellent and the Worthington beef that was cooked perfectly.
We both enjoyed the fact that we could carry on a conversation without have to yell !.
The only downside was that we felt the dining room , although very clean ,could use an update.
All things considered it was an excellent experience.

Best quality brunch in town
We have tried lunch and dinner here and usually like it, but this was a great surprise among buffets in Columbus All the food is prepared in-house---not previously frozen fare from Sysco or other vendors. This is fresh. In addition to perfect omelets, we enjoyed shell-on shrimp, smoked salmon, hummus, beet salad, tender roast beef, and tilapia.
Our two toddlers enjoyed the fresh cut and whole fruits as well as pasta bolognese and Belgian waffles. The desserts are made in-house, unlike most buffets which offer pre-cut defrosted pies and cakes. The scones are a favorite.

The Worthington Inn has always
The Worthington Inn has always been a special place for my wife and I....we were married there. Each year we have our anniversary dinner there, and it is always a wonderful experience. The food is always diverse and top shelf. Excellent wine selection, and cozy ambiance--even if the restaurant is full. Service is attentive and accommodating.
Recommend this fine place to anyone. And, of course, we'll be back next year for our anniversary!
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We went to the Worthington Inn there with our neighbors and had a great time. We have been several times but not in the last year or so. Service was exceptional from all, including our server Jake and service assistant Colin. We will be back again soon. Thank you!

First time diners
None In Our Group Of 4 Has Ever Been Here Before, So We All Ordered Something Different From Each Other. None Of Us Were Disappointed. All Of Our Entrees Were Excellent! We Had The Beef Worthington, Salmon, Crab Cakes And The Pork Chop. All Were Excellent. Even The Bruschetta Appetizer Was Wonderful!Ere

Great food and atmosphere
We have been dining at The Worthington Inn for 35+ years. Many years ago, my daughter selected the Inn for her 16th birthday dinner because she liked the warm atmosphere and excellent food.

Great Variety for Sunday Brunch
We've had brunch at the Worthington Inn at least 10 times. The items are pretty similar each time we have visited but there is a great variety of dishes available on the buffet. My favorites are the roast beef and made-to-order omelet. My daughter enjoys the peel and eat shrimp and my son eats many, many waffles with berries and whipped cream. My husband always tries something new (this past Sunday he tried apple fennel salad; not his favorite but "not too bad either"). The only disappointment is the desserts in that you can't tell what they are. What looked like chocolate cake was chocolate raspberry cake and if I had known about the raspberry I would have made a different choice. It would be great if there was a list of desserts posted.

When we arrived we were seated
When we arrived we were seated immediately in a quiet area as requested. As the evening wore on a very large table was seated next to us making for a jovial but LOUD competition for our hearing. I have a hearing loss so requested a quiet table.
The service was superb; the food equally fine. The reservation system on line is very user friendly. Thank you, Jan Wood

We went here for our 28th wedding anniversary. Our reservation was at 5 and we were seated in the back and were all by ourselves for most of the dinner. The bread was not ready so we had to wait. I had two glasses of wine, one chardoney and one pinot. They were very good. The portions were on the small size, especially compared to the price. We probably won't go back for dinner due to the cost.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I had dinner here on a Saturday evening. The Worthington Inn has great character and very good food. The owners have kept an old world feel to the place that is sure to be loved by all early American afficianados. Great job.

Enjoyable dining experience
Great food and service. Only complaint was the restaurant wasn't crowded, and they sat 4 of us at a very cramped table. Everything else was great.

A Local Gem
Stumbled on this during an online search and was not disappointed. This restaurant is set in an old house where you cannot help but wonder what it was like living there back In its time. Beautiful architecture and beautiful paintings. Then the food and wine.... Wow! To begin, they have a great wine selection and the server was well educated In helping us decide. We had the Worthington Beef paired with a nice red that was so delicious, when the food arrived conversation ceased at the table. We topped this epicurious extravaganza with the chocolate flourless torte. AMAZING!!! If yo are contemplating this restaurant, you will not be disappointed.

A birthday treat
For my birthday I was treated to dinner at the Worthington Inn. What a treat! We started with cocktails...excellent. Then calamari .....fresh and nicely prepared. Then Beef Worthington.....highly recommended. Save room for the warm banana crepes.... OMG! Service was excellent. I like the quiet atmosphere!

Still a pleaser
The Worthington Inn continues to provide tasty food, from locally sourced farms in a quaint homage to the.19th century.
Service is attentive but not looming. Capable bartenders, interesting dishes and delectable deserts.
It's good for drink at the antique bar, family dinner or romantic night out on the town. It also makes a fantastic business lunch option, especially in the warmer times of the year, or you don't wish to either go to downtown Columbus, or hit a mall.
Try it, you won't be disappointed!

We always go to the Worthington Inn whenever my parents are in town. It is always great and never disapoints.

Arrived on time (2PM) for
Arrived on time (2PM) for anniversary lunch with my wife. Despite our reservation we were forced to wait about 15 minutes to be seated. At that time the hostess attempted to seat us at a small table next to a very loud party of women. We refused to be seated at that table and waited about ten more minutes for a table to be cleared in an adjoining room with numerous empty tables. As usual, the food was very good, but I would hesitate to subject myself to a repetition of the less than sterling seating service.
10/24/2013 5:00:00 PM
We dined on a very quiet Saturday night. At first we were concerned by the lack of fellow diners, but the staff attributed it to the afternoon Buckeye game earlier in the day. What a delicious meal! The cheese plate appetizer had one of the most complex cheeses I've ever tried, and it's local to Ohio! The entrees were fantastic. I had the lamb shank special which was executed perfectly. My companion had the pork tenderloin, which he stated was the best pork he had ever eaten, which is high praise as he has traveled extensively and dines out frequently. We will definitely be back to the Worthington Inn to further sample the menu!

Perfect for a Romantic Night
Really neat restaurant, had the Beef Worthington and it was fantastic. Great for a night out on the town, or for a romantic dinner. Don't forget your wallet, because good food doesn't come cheap here. Fantastic experience, second time I went and I plan a third soon.
