Late night snack
After enjoying a movie we came to S&W for a light late snack. The soup and appetizers we order were just perfect. Big portions and tasty. The crab meat salad was a very large portion of crab meat with very tasty sauses.

Service too slow for lunch.
Service too slow for lunch.
Had 4 people with me and it took way too long.
Same thing as a year ago!
I decided to try it this time, same result.
No wonder it's not very busy

This restaurant takes pride
This restaurant takes pride in its food: handling, presentation, serving, overall care; respect for the food. This restaurant should be known for the people, the waitstaff. They are friendly, cordial, full of humor, smiles, genuine. They have us feeling like old friends. They tend to our dining needs, but nothing is hurried here. No hustle/bustle. Everything is deliberate, careful, yet relaxed, not stuffy. An overall, very pleasant, low stress, dining experience.

The crab cake was excellent.
The crab cake was excellent.
Our steaks were ordered medium well. They both were received well. The outside of the steaks were black and crispy. The waiter didn't check in with us until we were 1/2 finished eating.

The service and dry aged steak
The service and dry aged steak at Smith & Wollensky is the best in the city of Columbus. I have also dinned at many of the other locations and they are all spectacular.

First Time Disappointment at S&W
Salad Girl was out of touch, Server was excellent, Food was Very Good. We will return, this was the first time that everything was not perfect.
This is the BEST outdoor dinning in the Columbus area.

Smith and Wollensky's is a top notch steakhouse. Expect nothing less than a perfect dining experience. Food, atmosphere, and service are second to none. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a special night out.

We came to Smith and Wollensky for our 1st wedding anniversary and I am glad I made this choice. Their service was excellent and the food was prepared well and tasted wonderful.we pretty much had a whole room to ourselves since it was not so busy. Definitely a place to take that special someone for a nice treat.

You get what you pay for
I've ordered the coffee and cocoa encrusted filet and steak was outstanding, My wife also ordered a filet that was outstanding as well the side dishes were great overall a very good dining experience, It's not the cheapest place in town to eat, but worth the price.

Great food and service! The cocktails are spectacular. Brad gave us great service and we had a very special anniversary!

Our son turned 33. Our only son. We decided Smith & Wollensky was a fitting place for a big celebration. Six of us enjoyed cocktails with two of the Seafood towers for starters..what's not to love there.. Five steaks prepared perfectly and one succulent Ahi Tuna with Wasabi were the main course accompanied by a variety of salads...Wedge, Smith & Wollensky salads.. Mac and Cheese, Baked Potato, broccoli for the birthday boy made the main course perfect. With a selection of different wines we were well on our way to sublime bounty. WOW... it's time for Birthday Cake ...our son only eats the COCONUT CAKE. He has excellent taste and so does the coconut cake. Add Chocolate Cake, S&W's own Cheesecake, their Carrot Cake -what's not to like?
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
All around fantastic experience. Pear Ginger Martini was an amazing way to start my evening. The long bone ribeye is the best steak I have ever had. We finished with Noval port and gigantic chocolate cake. It was a perfect evening, thank you.

Awesome Customer Service
The great customer service is what keeps us coming back. I ordered a steak that just was not quite how it was supposed to be prepared and all I asked so that in the future I would know how to order and the staff recognized it was not prepared to their standard. They offered to replace the item or give me another one and I chose to keep what was given. It was the courtesy that was shown that I truly appreciated. We will keep coming back to this restaurant.
7/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
AMAZING as ALWAYS!!
Perfect in every way! Attention to detail, the service is top notch, Managers are classy, this is the best restaurant in Columbus!!
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Incredible as always...
Steaks were fantastic; succulent and cooked perfectly! The truffled macaroni and cheese always a favorite, was golden brown and full of cheesy goodness. Service was five star; from the attentiveness of our server, Erron, to the managers, and even the girl that brought our bread. Always a favorite, we will return!
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was our 1st visit but will not be our last. The food was great!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The servers were outstanding as was the meal.

Relaxing after business golf
Attentive, engaged service, with appropriate humor.
Helpful guiding through menu - we all ordered the same thing but prepared differently. They got it exactly right.
Asked for some extra things that were promptly attended to.
Arrived early v reserved time, but seating was found as we were hoping for: outdoors and away from noise.
Good for relaxed discussion of the day and business.

This was a special night for an anniversary. The staff was great, dinner was very good, and the dessert was amazing. My wife informed me that we had at least 50 more to go, and said we should come here more often.....

Excellent Anniversary Dinner
Excellent Service, excellent food. It was a wonderful way to spend our anniversary.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Whether going for a quick snack or a celebratory dinner the team treats everyone like family. From the Gen manager to the wait staff everyone is working together (a true team effort) to make sure everything is perfect.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to the restaurant on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed our visit. This time was no exception. The staff in knowledgeable and friendly. We had an early dinner in the dinning room and were pleased with the ambiance even as the dinning room filled with other customers over the course of the evening.
8/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time there
The food and service was outstanding though slightly on the pricey side. it was well worth it.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
New to Columbus, I've asked around for a great new place and found Smith & Wollensky. Cool ambience and the food was great! Approached by the manager Sean who seemed very pleasant and kind, we met our server John. VERY tall and sweet he navigated us through the menu. The Long bone ribeye was awesome, and the off menu crab mac and cheese was amazing! Thank Chef Josh for coming out to our table to present our dessert also! Be back soon.
8/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Chip was great!
Thanks AGAIN to the Smith crew. We asked for John, I'm sorry Gonzo, and everything was perfect. He knew how our steaks were to be prepared. I didnt know there was a medium push, it made everything better. I loved that Gonzo introduced us to En Route Pinot Noir, as promised it made the meal better. The G.M. Chip stopped by and really helped enhance our experience with his time he spent with us and his knowledge. I love you guys!

Always A Great Event
Love Wine Week at Smith and Wollensky! However it's not quite the value it used to be. Wines are now $20 instead of $10 (although they mention the extra goes to charity) and there is no special prix fixe lunch offering. It becomes a very expensive lunch, although tremendous fun, especially if someone else is footing the bill. Offered twice a year, I will probably cut back to once.

Good meal, service average
We decided to try this restaurant for our anniversary. I made reservations on Open Table and there was a note to call them directly if celebrating a special occasion, which we did. We were seated pretty close to the kitchen. The food was good, but we thought the prices were a bit high and service was average. We have been to several other high-end steakhouses and felt that we got a better meal and that the service was better at others. They also did nothing to acknowledge our anniversary, which others have typically done. Later, we were notified by Open Table that we did not show up for our reservation, so they apparently never even checked us in properly. With the other options available, we are not sure that we would go back.

Celebrated my birthday here.
Celebrated my birthday here. It was a wonderful evening. We sat in the wine room...very cozy and intimate. We had one of the best filets we have had in a long time. Flavorful, tender, prepared perfectly medium rare. Jimmy was our server and very attentive. Ryan the manager is always so cordial and friendly.

Best Steak in Columbus
Both my wife and I are true "Foodies".
My wife and I celebrate every special occassion at this location. We have always been seated promptly and the service is over the top.
It's the best steak house in Columbus. The wine list is a bit pricey, but the wines by the glass are plentiful. I always recommend the Smith & Wollensky property to anyone not from the area for a great meal.

Outstanding food and wine!
Both the food and the bar drinks were fantastic. The only bad part was the service, the wait staff seemed to be slightly annoyed that we were there and were fairly absent given the level of overall quality at this restaurant. The wait staff also didn't seem to communicate very well or have it together. They worked in a team of 2 and the one who took our drink and appetizer order didn't tell us about the daily specials or about the soup du jour. However, we didn't wait around very long for the food to come and when it did, it was AMAZING!! When the entree came though, the food runner handing out the food was obviously super confused and took a few to look at the ticket vs. the food on his cart. Slight annoyances, but great overall!

The food and the service were
The food and the service were very good. we were there on a week night, so the place was pretty quiet.

Recent Smith & Wolle Visit 10.23.13
My husband & I recently dined at Smith & Wollensky for our wedding anniversary. It was a special occasion from the minute you walked in, we were seated immediately. We were wished a Happy Anniversary throughout the evening and provided a complimentary glass of champagne! In speaking with the Catering/Private Events Manager prior to our evening to discuss the venue for a corporate function, I mentioned that my favorite dish was Beef Wellington and that I couldn't find it regularly served in restaurants here locally. He offered to order one for me for our special night! Once I made the reservation I let him know the date & he confirmed back & asked how if med-rare was ok!! It was awesome! The food, the service --- definitely will return!
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great lunch place
They have a great lunch menu with packaged deals... service is spot on... and the food is perfected to a tee.
Ask for Nicholas for lunch... or anyone for that matter.
We took some out of town friends there and they fell in love.
We also had a young child with us and the staff made sure they catered to ANYTHING she wanted so she felt like she was eating a kids meal at the "big kid" table. It was great.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were celebrating our anniversary and had the best time. The food was fantastic and your staff was the best ever.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
why cant they all be this good!!!
Got there a little early and was greated at the door by a manager, James was our server who was not just friendly but patient. Food came out with perfect timing,( not to fast, not to slow) actually got to enjoy my salad. Aaron the manager checked on us in between meals and genuinely cared we were enjoying ourselves. The steak oscar is to die for, cooked perfectly and tons of flavor. Why can't every restraunt have the service and quality to Smith&Wollensky. Thank you James and Aaron we will be back shortly!

I have always liked Porterhouse Steaks. However I am 45 years old and I never had a Porterhouse so tasty and cooked to perfection. This thick steak literally melts in your mouth! Smith & Wollensky is a Great restaurant!!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
From beginning to end our evening was delicious and delightful. wonderful service topped the list
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food and Service
Our waiter John made our evening great. The steaks were cooked to perfection and their flavor was out of this world.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
The answer to every question is yes! Impeccable service during every visit, with a staff that always remembers you. Whether you are stoping in for a quick bite, or need a night of indulgence the team at S&W is going to take excellent care of you.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had a wonderful time celebrating my wife's 70th Birthday. Everyone applauded the restaurant - great time by all.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We picked correctly
Price points keep this exquisite restaurant out of the ordinary option for us. However, the atmosphere of welcoming, the service, the food... made it the perfect choice for taking our time to celebrate life. It was easy to taste the time and care the chefs took to create our meal.
If the staff just noted the reason for our celebration, it would have been enough to impress.
If they just brought a glass of champagne to the table in recognition of my special occasion, we would have been surprised and grateful. When management brought over a tray of desserts to help me celebrate a birthday and 1 year Remission…we were stunned silent.
But what makes Smith and Wollensky perfect? The staff!!
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Excellent for a special lunch
I was super impressed with the lunch menu. High quality ingredients and delicious salads. Great value for the quality. Super friendly staff.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
I just wanted to give a special thanks to all of the folks at Smith and Wollensky's especially Taylor our waiter who was great.
