Birthday celebrationWe had a one pm reservation for two and were immediately seated. It was quite noisy until some tables left. Service was exceptional. Cocktails were great. Food was very good. We are an elderly couple, so parking was somewhat of a problem. But we managed and will return someday.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMwe had a big group of womenwe had a big group of women -- and the service was great and accomodating.
the crab and avocado salad still the best!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerI took my wife to Spagio to celebrate our first anniversary and it turned out to be a great decision. Everything was great. Our waiter, Nathaniel, was friendly and very attentive. I had the meatloaf, which was perfectly cooked and had excellent flavor. My wife had the lobster ravioli and raved about it. Dessert was phenomenal as well. We had the molten chocolate cake and the Sache. Both were divine. We also felt that the prices were very reasonable for the quality of food and service that you receive. We will definitely be back!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrating a RetirementVery yummy and delightful evening! Best halibut I have ever eaten!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMProviding dependably graciousProviding dependably gracious hospitality in a comfortably elegant setting for 30 years, Spagio sets a high standard for newer upstarts to live up to. The menu offers an appealing variety of excellent choices, and the food never disappoints. We've been visiting Spagio for so long it almost seems like coming home to dine - if one had a superb chef in the kitchen.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFamily CelebrationWe had a group of 4, including my 4 year old daughter. We all frequently dine out, but had never all been to Spagio at the same time. We were looking for something different that would be kid-friendly and would give us a more festive locale ti celebrate. Spagio fit the bill nicely. The hostess and host greeted us warmly, even taking some extra time to converse with my daughter. Our waitress was great! She, too, seemed to enjoy my daughter and laughed along with us at some of her antics. All in all, we had a great lunch. There were not many other children there, but my daughter was well-behaved, so we blended in with the crowd. This was an expensive lunch (over $80 with tip), but it was memorable and unique.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDate nightMy husband and I enjoyed a relaxing meal at Spagios. The kitchen was willing to make some small adjustments to my husband's meal in order to fix his favorite dish. I enjoyed pasta with veal meatballs.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely EveningFour of us enjoyed our dinner completely. I had the lobster ravioli which was out standing;my husband had the seafood stew. We wroth were completely satisfied with our meal. Our compa ions Beth ordered the specials - the beef short ribs and the salmon. Three of us had the deck iOS small dinner salad and I had the chopped salad. It could have been a meal by itself, ut I was glad it wasn't as I really loved the lobster ravioli. Our waitress, Megan, was perfect. The food came out in a timely fashion. We did not feel the least bit rushed nor did we have to wait an unreasonable time,either. All tOgether it was a perfect evening!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for dinnerGreat food and place for conversation over dinner.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMKeep Going BackI love Spagio. The food is always consistently delicious. I had the Mother Day Brunch french toast, my Mom had the Eggs A La Maison and boyfriend the Steak and Eggs. Everything was so flavorful and perfectly cooked.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVegan/Gluten-Free OptionsI was very pleased to see that the menu offered vegan and gluten-free options! What I found a little disheartening was that the online menu was more extensive than the restuarants menu, I had toggle between menus to decide what I wanted.
My date is not vegan or gluten free. He ordered the chicken dinner to find that parts of his chicken were still under cooked. The staff was very accomodating to the situation and rectified it in a just way.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMHow to Celebrate Mother's DayOur service was very good as was the food. Unfortunately the restaurant had already run out of some of the items (the quiche,for one) but the menu still has good choices left. The apple strudel was outstanding, even though you had rin out of the ice cream. QWe had good food, the restaurant was full but wew did not feel crowded. The wait staff was working hard but did not seem flustered. Certainly will return wand will recommend Spagio's to others, although it did not look like you needed the business!,,5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day TraditionWe always choose Spagio for Mother's Day. They give each female guest a rose which is such a nice touch. We eat there at other times as well and have never been disappointed in the menu.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMStupendous SurpriseWas in town for family gathering last Sunday. Followed along to this place for food and convesation with moderate expectations. Well! The food was sublime! Freshness of vegetables, flavorful pairings, perfect preparation and presentations, and a server who had the perfect touch for everything.
I had just returned from San Francisco, but this is the meal I remember. I'll never pass through Columbus again without making plans to revisit Spagio.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Food was excellent asThe Food was excellent as well as the service. I have already recommended to our friends and family. It is a gem in the neighborhood. The prices were very reasonable.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing FoodBeen twice now on last two trips to Columbus. Lobster bisque is the best I've ever had! It's wonderful.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a gem!Spagio's food selection is superb. Their brunch is delicious and their pizza's are to die for. I will definitely be going back there soon!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest BrunchAlways one of the best brnches in town and now that the weather is warm, you can eat outside!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDining for Special OccasionWe chose Spagio for our daughter's graduation from The Ohio State University because it is one of her favorite restaurants. Spagio did not disappoint. We arrived early and the hostess graciously sat us right away. Our server was outstanding! She was very pleasant and the service was superb. Our meals were well prepared and delicious. All seven guests enjoyed their meals. I would dine here again.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMouth-watering Prime RibThis was my first time going to this restaurant. The prime rib was so tender and the veggies were very flavorful. I brought a co-worker with me and will definitely come back again.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, mediocre wines by glassThe food was good. The patio was nice. The service was OK. We split a salad and an entree, and the waitress did not offer to split it for us which is unusual for a restaurant of this caliber.
I was disappointed with the selections of wines by the glass. The Cab was weak and a little bitter. The Malbec was so-so. Their list of wines by the bottle looked nice, but there were only two of us and it was a Tuesday evening, so I would have liked a better by-the-glass selection.
The atmosphere is active and interesting, the lighting is not really low. Good for a friendly dinner, not necessarily for a romantic one.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently GoodThe food portions are large, so come hungry. This venue was quiet during this visit, but is usually bustling and busy. Our entrée, the Pork Chop takes a bit more time to cook, so we ordered an appetizer for the group. That said, it is worth waiting for. This was a first occasion for friends and they enjoyed their meal with wine.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was so good. We are backIt was so good. We are back today for brunch. Buying a gift certificate for a friend.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMEstablished, dependable restaurantEstablished, dependable restaurant with constantly delicious food and professional wait staff.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMA great visit w/ minor flawsColorful and ecclectic inside, but in a very tasteful manner that we loved. The tarte flambee was quite delicious. The greens on the vegetable Napoleon were far too salty, but the dish was still very enjoyable. My boyfriend had no complaints about his porkchop. The sachertorte and molten lava cake for desert finished off the evening perfectly. There was a small problem in that our entree order didn't get to the kitchen right away. Though we waited longer than we would have liked, with the appetizer in our bellies, the relaxed ambiance, and the genuine friendliness of our waitress, the wait was far less disappointing than it would have been in many other restaurants. Next time we feel like a nicer dinner, we'll definitely return.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways wonderful, but brunchAlways wonderful, but brunch this day was just a bit off. The server said there were some new staff in the kitchen - it was still good, but not quite up to their usual.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent value, great flavorWhile traveling and passing through Columbus, I met a friend for dinner (on the restaurant side) and was impressed - the wine list was very good, and an excellent value. We ordered the calamari - it was EXCELLENT, a must have. We also ordered a pizza and the gorganzola pasta with chicken - both were very good.
Our server, Megan was very friendly, knowledgeable and personable, a pleasure to have.
In addition, they have daily special offerings - not just additions to the menu but items that are weekly specials on a given day - again - an excellent value, more than worth what they charge. And finally, on Sunday nights (which this was), the bottles of wine are offered at a 20% discount - impressive.
I'd come back again4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe wanted to dine for lunchWe wanted to dine for lunch at a place with great food and a quiet atmosphere where we could actually talk and have a conversation. Spagio fit the bill in both areas. We were very pleased with our selections (Crab meat macaroni and cheese, Crab/Avacado salad, and Lobster Bisque) All three in our party were well pleased! We had come in from out of town and needed a wonderful place to eat before a funeral. We can hardly wait to return.. next time just for fun!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMA favoriteWe continue to consider Spagio one of our favorites. I love that there is a wide variety of food choices, ranging from light dishes, to pizza, to substantial entrees like sauerbraten and wiener schnitzel. No kids' menu but our preteen grandsons always find something they love.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great first timeWe had a great first time dining experience at Spagio! It was very cute inside, the food and wine were great and our server, Doug, was awesome! I am looking forward to going back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMI thought they were very seriousI thought they were very serious about their business, which I loved. They really paid attention to the quality of all aspects of the restaurant business, such as food, service.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service at Spagio wasThe service at Spagio was prompt, polite, efficient, and customized to our needs. We had a variety of appetizers, soups, and salads, and we ordered 6 different entrees, with special requests in 3 cases. So we had a great opportunity to sample the menu and their flexibility, and they were great in all aspects. Everything was served at the appropriate temperature, prepared as requested, and was excellent in flavor. We were more than satisfied, but couldn't pass up the great looking dessert case, so we all took home dessert for later, and all of those were top notch too. We try new restaurants as much as we can, so we don't usually get back to the ones we've tried very quickly, but we're making an exception for Spagio.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for Easter Brunch,We went for Easter Brunch, and everything was wonderful.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went on aMy husband and I went on a Sunday evening, when there is a 20% discount on wine.

Since I have to follow a gluten-free diet, I reviewed the menu before we arrived and knew I wanted to order a gluten-free pizza, but I was informed they had run out of gluten-free dough. Um, ok. So, instead, I ordered the pork chop, sans the fried onions, and it was delightful. Then for dessert, I wanted to take home a creme brulee and they didn't have any of these either! The waiter just scooped some of the filling into a to-go container and handed us some sugar and told us how to caramelize it in our broiler. Really? The food was good, but we won't be back anytime soon.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBest brunch in town.Always a great restaurant for brunch. The food is wonderful and inventive, The waffle fries should not be missed.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceReally the best pork chop I have had in the Cols. area, and I have tried many. This one was equal to, if not better than the one at The Refectory. I also appreciate that you can talk across a table and are able to hear each other easily.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA Grandview GemExcellent food as always. Excellent service as always.

A true Columbus must and highly recommend!!!2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDate nightMy girlfriend had just returned from a long study abroad trip and I wanted to take her to a nice place for our first meal. My friend had reccomended Spagio in grand ville and after looking up some pleasant reviews I decided to make a reservation. I found the staff to be very accommodating to my request for a romantic table for two near a window and away from large tables. The dinner was fabulous but the best part was the dessert display. All in all, I would say that Spagio's staff, food and atmosphere makes it the perfect restaurant for a date with your significant other.12/27/2012 12:00:00 AM
