Fantastic food, random wine pairing
Only reason going from 5 to 4 stars was the wine pairing seemed very random. We highly recommend visiting. Great local food with a menu that rotates based on availability and keeping things interesting.
We had the tasting menu. We were incredibly impressed with the food. The wine pairing left much to be desired however. 3 chardonnays to start, one paired with a very earthy mushroom risotto. Then a hearty merlot with a shrimp and grits course. It seemed way more random than thought out. The wine was not bad though.

Chef Bell is very talented
Chef Bell is very talented and astute. His tasting menu was outstanding and so delicious we are planning on returning as often as we can for it. The ingredients were fresh, beautifully presented, cooked to perfection, and the blend of flavors was bold yet subtle. Pure delight.

Even though meat, salad and appetizers came at once and pizza was served later, every single plate was outstanding! Beef steak was very tender and mussels had fantastic spicy lemongrass flavor. Pizza crust was rightly crispy. Portion was just right, not ridiculously huge. We've never had such a sophisticated quality even in NYC or LA. Highly recommended for genuine foodies.

Latitude 41 Always a Hit
This is the four time I've eaten at Latitude 41 and every single time has been incredible. I love that the restaurant focuses on sourcing local ingredients for their dishes. We were the only party in the restaurant (Saturday before Easter) and our server was amazing. I wish I could remember his name! His knowledge of the menu was very impressive and he described the dishes so well.
We had a friends 40th birthday dinner here and everyone was impressed with how good the food was.

Food was great and so was service. Kitchen seemed a little slow for the amount of people in restaurant. Lunch took over an hour for a group of 7.

My wife and I dined at Latitude 41 before a CSO concert, and ordered the Tasting Menu with wine pairing. It was fabulous! Even though it was a relatively busy Saturday evening, the chef came to our table with each course and explained what he chose and why, and a bit of how he made it. They timed everything just perfectly to give us plenty of time to make our show.

Good food; good location
My wife enjoyed dinner in their outdoor area which was quite enjoyable. The staff is very attentive and the food was good.

Wonderful Food and Experience
My wife and I ate at the restaurant and tried the Chef's Choice 4 course dinner and was extremely impressed with the explanations of each course and the wine selections also for each course. We had a wonderful dining experience and would recommend for anyone who is looking for an upscale menu with a casual atmosphere.

Pleasant surprise on a short notice
I made the reservation for 7 people on the Thursday before Mothers' Day to have brunch. In many other buffets, it is typically loud and the service is nothing to comment on. Although busy, it was well staffed and the buffet was pretty well stocked. The kid's pancake making station was a hit with my two children (both under 5). Would absolutely return for a special occasion.

nice before theater
while part of the hotel and convenient, it was still very good. the cocktails were extra delicious before dinner. Service was good and prompt.

AMAZING! We had the 4 course chef's choice with wine pairings. We've been to all of the "upper scale" restaurants in Columbus and this is by far our favorite.

Dining experience was exceptional
Would have given outstanding for food but think tuna was substituted for my daughter's salmon (which we overheard a waiter tell another customer that they had run out of salmon). Server Chris was outstanding - very knowledgeable and made excellent suggestions which all proved true.

Not Just Another Hotel Restaurant
My wife and I chose Latitude 41 because it was very close to the Ohio Theatre and we were on a tight schedule to see a show there. The food was surprisingly interesting and well-prepared. The service was excellent. And the prices were quite reasonable. This is not just another hotel restaurant. We'll dine at Latitude 41 again when we go to events downtown.

Fine food and service
My friend and I had dinner recently at Latitude 41 and had a wonderful experience. The food was more than we could have hoped for. Everything was prepared and presented very well. The staff was very attentive, but not overly anxious or hovering. We could not believe what a great dinner experience we had. Even though we live more than 150 miles away we will be back for dinner.

Favorite downtown place
Delicious place to dine downtown. This is NOT your typical hotel restaurant!

We went for our Anniversary,
We went for our Anniversary, and took the multiple suggestions and tried the 6-course Chef's Dinner. It was highly remarkable. Inventive and flavorful. Dillon, who was running both the bar and serving tables, was wonderful and very helpfuil. He kept us feeling special and made our dinner a highlight for the night. We went on a sunday night, noteworthy that Columbus on a sunday night is a ghosttown, and had the restaurant to ourselves for the first three courses. We were treated royally.
Thank you Latitude 41

We had a late dinner to celebrate our anniversary. We sat outside and it was perfect. Service and food -Outstanding! Will definitely go again!

Will give it another chance soon
We certainly appreciated the friendly and personable atmosphere Chef Mike and his staff had for us on a Tuesday evening. A hearty kale salad, juicy bar harbor muscles, tomato risotto, 24- hr braised short rib (too dry) with salty potatoes, and finally under-seared but extremely salted scallops over a cauliflower saffron couscous, which had ruined the enjoyment of the last duo dessert. The server and Chef Mike did apologize for the salty scallops and sent us home with some chocolate covered strawberries which we are currently enjoying. Overall, the tasting menu seemed better suited for a late/fall or winter heavy meal. Since we have had great experiences in the past with Latitude 41, we give it another try in a few months.

Hotel Restaurant that Surprises
Very good food, very good service, and no trouble getting in. Nice ambience and attractive environment. Surprising to find all of these tucked into a hotel restaurant. But it's true!

Excellent venue for a working lunch
Outstanding service, good salads, and decadent macaroni and cheese with lobster. Tables well-spaced and good light in downtown Columbus location. Great list of locally sourced ingredients and particularly delicious cappuccino.

Excellent place for lunch or dinner
We sat on the patio for lunch but walked through the inside. The atmosphere was nice and There was a good menu selection.

Unforgettable Anniversary Dinner
We dined on a Monday night so it was nearly empty-perfect for our occasion as we had the full attention of our server Brent. After being seated, our server noted that it was our anniversary and started out with a complimentary glass of champagne and toast to the evening. Everything on the menu looked delicious so we ended up choosing the Chef's Tasting Menu (6 course). The tasting menu was amazing, but 4 courses would have been plenty as the portions were remarkably large. Brent did an excellent job describing each course, taking into consideration our likes/dislikes, he had one of the chefs come out to greet us and describe the dessert, and Brent even prepared a cocktail for us to pair with one dish (no extra charge). Excellent all around!

Our server was outstanding. He knew we needed to be out for a play at the Ohio Theater, so he placed our order in sequence so it would be out in time, gave us updates on the time since we were very busy talking. He was knowledgeable about the menu, portion size and wine list.

AND A HAPPY BIRTHDAY IT WAS
We went for a birthday celebration; we were warmly welcomed and quickly received our drink orders. Appetizers were delish, and amazing. Dinner was equally outstanding and you can tell its farm to table fresh and so tasty. It’s not a dinner you’ll forget and will leaving you wanting more.
Since it was my birthday we shared dessert amongst ourselves.
I have to say, the chef has done a wonderful job providing an upscale meal at comfortable prices. We’ll definitely be back!

Had a fabulous meal
The ambiance was great. The food was delicious and we loved the fact that it was fresh and local. The service was superb and helpful with my request for gluten-free options. I ordered the 4 course meal and the chef came out to explain my options. Would definitely recommend Latitude 41 to others. Can't wait to go back.

Excellent food and service
We choose Latitude 41 after seeing some good reviews and being intrigued by the menu. Well, the menu on the website was quite different from the menu in the restaurant, but that is understandable considering they use mostly local and sustainable products and it changes often. Our server was nice and asked why we were in town; after telling him we were seeing a show in less than 2 hours, he made sure to give us prompt service.
Needless to say, our appetizer pizza (Fig and goat cheese) was excellent, as were our entrees. Just when we didn't think it could get better, the dessert came - chocolate and caramel cake with ice cream and toffee sauce. The cake was a dense sponge texture and was perfect for two to share.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed Latitude 41 and were delightfully surprised by the lovely decor, ambiance and appealing menu. Service was very quick, then got slow,--almost made us late for our 8pm show. Wait staff easily accommodated our gluten free needs.

Aunties on the Road
My sister and I came to Columbus to hear friends play at Tara Hall on Friday night, stayed overnight and met up with our Niece from Somerset to take in A Christmas Carol at the historic Ohio Theater the next day. My Niece and I had met at Latitude 41 two years ago when we met in downtown Columbus and enjoyed the menu and wine list and comfortable non-pushy atmosphere. This time we arrived earlier and had breakfast. It was delightful. Maybe the next time we do this we will also make reservations at the Renaissance. But, we do like walking around downtown a little. Our server was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious.
