Delicious and creative tapas. Will definitely add to our "rotation" of favorite Columbus
restaurants.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfectionComplementary hummus and fried pita (veges and humus for gluten-free guests) upon arrival.......Amazing lamb shanks very reasonably priced (look at the price of shanks in the grocery!).....All six of us were moaning with the first bite! We can attest for the lamb shanks and braised short ribs.....LOTS of gluten free choices which are marked right on the regular menu. Beautiful private areas for larger groups too.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was fabulous withThe food was fabulous with a lot of options for a vegetarian like me :) There were many tapas options which were unusual and fabulous!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant surpriseThe menu looked good so my friend and I decided to try it. We had a great experience starting with our waitress , Morgan and the owner who took a personal interest in us. The cocktails were fabulous along with the tomato and goat cheese dip. We had the house and beet salads which were beautiful with very fresh ingredients. We split the veggie pizza which was actually loaded with many different veggies and had a light delicious crust. I ended up making reservations for Mothers Day and had an equally good experience.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was amazing! The salad,Food was amazing! The salad, goat cheese dip and braised beef were all outstanding5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMQiuet neighborhood findThe Seafood Opera was splendid, the calamari delicious. Went there on a whim while traveling on business, and it will now be my first option when I visit the Columbus area.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMBest cocktails and Medditarian foodMy husband had a delicious dark Russian Imperial beer, I had the two-step in raspberry. I've had cocktails at many fine restaurants, but none have ever beat this one. It was wonderful! Not usually a hummus fan, but the fresh pita chips and hummus with cilantro and a hint of garlic was outstanding. We both loved it. Husband had the Halibut (hard to find in these parts) and it was great. I had and highly recommend the Lobster ravioli, with the homemade slightly spiced creamy crab sauce. We can't wait to go back. Parking is complementary valet on weekends, a very nice touch!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place, great tapasEverything was really excellent here. We went the tapas route, and had several items between us. All were excellent. The service couldn't have been better. The only negative is that they brought us a complimentary tapas dish of pita with cilantro hummus. The chef should know that many people, including me, have a STRONG aversion to cilantro. I appreciate the gesture, but something less known to be a problem for many would have been a better choice.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great dinner at Sidebar.Had a great dinner at Sidebar. We hadn't been there in awhile. We were glad we went again. The appetizer was great, wonderful flavors, to start. Loved the wedge salad. All entrees were pretty terrific. The salmon was beautiful, well presented and cooked perfectly. It was also a generous portion, at a very reasonable price. Terrific service, attentive without being overly so. All in all, one of the best nights of dining in some time. We'll be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat options for the gluten-freeGreat options for the gluten-free diners.

It is great to know you can count on a restaurant to time things just right so you can enjoy your meal without rushing and still have plenty of time to get to the theater. The food was delicious, as always, and we were impressed that the new manager came to our table to check on us and make sure we were enjoying our experience.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMService was outstanding.
