  • Outstanding find
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 10/20/2014
    Till really was a "find" for two of us from out of town attending a conference. But the prospect of properly poured Lillet blanc (our benchmark of a decent place to eat) plus an amazing list of aperitifs and digestifs put Till at the top of the list. On the rainy Monday night after homecoming, the place was all but deserted so we had the leisure to quiz barmeister Brandon about some of the more esoteric botanicals he stocks at the bar and to try one of his amazing custom blends of digestifs. The food was excellent, well prepared and presented, and quite reasonable. We joked w Brandon that if we lived in Columbis we would be there every night for the next month for lessons in liqueur history and mixology. Only partly joking, mind you.

  • $14 veggie burger?!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 9/25/2014
    Was so excited to go to a place known for their vegetarian options. Lunch menu has limited options in which to dine, so I gave the burger a go. Sorry to say, it's nothing special. Beautifully presented but as soon as u start eating, it falls apart and out of the bun it goes. Pretty typical issue for a veggie burger. I've had many veggie burgers this city has to offer and this one didn't distinguish itself from the rest. Service was great. No pressure and easy going! Disappointed in the food but may return for dinner to give it another try!!

    They do not offer a lot of dishes if you are vegetarian. But the cheese dishes are very different so you do not miss having other options. The Ohio Trout sandwich for lunch was superb as was the potato salad with white bean puree. The mud pie was rich and decadent. Much better experience than my first visit back on an August night.

    We had breakfast here at 10 in the morning on a Sunday and the food was great, the waitstaff and hostess/cashier were lovely, and it was a great location--just off of High so not lumped together with lots of other places, but easy to find. Nice atmosphere and great coffee. The food is a bit more unconventional with global flavors but we are foodies and loved it.

    This place had better food for my taste when it was Dragonfly. Indoors, there is a musty odor. This time we ate outside with lot's of noise from traffic and the loud music from the restaurant across the street. The food is okay, but not many choices for those of us who do not eat mammals.

    The ambiance of this place is really neat. Small but had a good vibe. The service was very slow. It took almost 30 minutes to get our cocktails. The waiter did come over and say the bar was backed up, but it was after 20 minutes of us waiting. The menu looked awesome!!! The food was average. Probably about 6 dollars per plate overpriced. I'm glad I tried someplace new, but definitely will not be back.

    ..... Or actually any party this particular night. The whole thing was a disaster. Our server really tried and rightly apologized and comped some things. She did what she could with what she had to work with. Probably my biggest annoyance was a menu printed with half the items not available AND no buns for the burgers, of which one was served RAW. I have previously reviewed Till with rave reviews. It was really rough and actually embarrassing since it was my choice for our group.

    We went here during restaurant week in July. For all of us in the group, it was our first time dining here. I had high expectations from reading so many rave reviews online. Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed from the food itself. Service and atmosphere were great. There were mix-mash of international flavors (i.e. Asian, Italian, etc.) and it was all pretty random. While I wholeheartedly like their concept and mission, the quality of the food should be better than what we had. We all left underwhelmed. I think the popularity is for the concept that they are using for their business model. The restaurant has many patrons and supporters and I'm sure it will do well long-term as this trend for localized food sourcing become mainstream.

    I usually rave about my first time dining somewhere new for restaurant week. We were sadly disappointed, as there was 20 minutes in between dishes and being served after the couple next to us, when we arrived there 15 minutes before them. Everything was alright but for being a small restaurant, I shouldn't be waiting this long for food. Sadly won't be coming there again.

    I had a great meal with good service. I had the baby kale which was my favorite and I'm not particularly fond of regular kale. The meatball was excellent. The sweet potato poutine was very good. My least favorite (which I thought would be my most) was the arugula and beet salad. It lacked flavor. We had the carrot cake for dessert and that was very good.

    I moved to Columbus a little over a year ago. When I first got here Till was one of the first restaurants that I tried which inspired my friends and I to make it a point to try out all the other known and unknown spots in Columbus. A year later after more food than I would like to mention, trying Till again, It is still one of my favorite restaurants in Columbus. Great food, locally grown and oftentimes grown in the back garden. The wait staff is courteous and attentive. They offer a variety of options that you would not find anywhere else. Often times an unknown Gem, but a must try for any foodie. Hats off to you Till, you've done it again :)

    First visit for us was good. We wanted to dine somewhere interesting but not crowded where we could converse. The lamb burger was excellent, cheese board with smoked trout imperiale was very good--there was a surprise substitution on it when served, but luckily we weren't allergic to yummy tomatoes. Drinks were fine, but almost Big City prices--$11 for vodka and St. Germain. Chocolate cake was very good. Would love to try again. We appreciated being able to linger for over two hours to talk and eat. the kitchen was open late on Saturday night, as well.

    Came here last year and was blown away by the service, food and the adorable garden in the back. This place is a bit of a car ride away if you are in town for a convention. I dragged my team here boasting about the garden to table scene and how great the food was last time. I was really disappointed.They were understaffed and the one waitress that seemed to be running the entire place was over worked and kept forgetting to bring us things. The awesome pizza I had last time was dried out this time. The runny egg was a thick dried out blob. My team said the best part was dessert. We topped the night off with a walk in the garden out back that was neglected and mostly dead. Not sure if I will return.

    While visiting Columbus for holiday weekend, decided we really wanted to try the reincarnation of what used to be DragonFly. This is certainly a great new incarnation. Beautiful and delicious food, service was excellent. Great for farm-to-table omnivores and vegans. Great cocktail menu; good wine list. This time, 4 stars because of some food items out of stock, but that's almost a nit-pick; will try again on next visit. Looking forward to 5 stars.

    As a twenty year veteran of the service industry, I can say that Till is one of the best restaurants in Columbus. The menus are always heartfelt and thoughtful. The drinks are well prepared and consistent. And the service is attentive and genuine without being pretentious or stiff. The decor is simple and sparse. I love it. I'll be back. Again and again.

    Arrived on time. Reservation at noon/6 for brunch/Father's Day. A very hot day. Front door of Till propped open & temp set at 77=uncomfortably warm inside. The host didn't plan for our reservation...no 6-tops for us. He had to relocate other diners & push tables together for our family. Service was SLOW/non-existent. No silverware or napkins were provided until after our beverages arrived. Had to ask for them and even then it took FOREVER to get just one napkin! Not 6 - just one for the person who asked. The menu looked interesting, but the host told us several items including two special fruit drinks were already sold out! Till served brunch until 3 & were sold out at noon! Food was good. The rest of our experience AWFUL!

    The food was very good. The donut and ice cream dessert was a fun treat. The aperitif drinks were very good as well. The main courses we got were pretty good; definitely worth the price. It was a very good value. I think two of us got out of there about a hundred bucks, with a drink and dessert, so for good food it's very affordable. Personally, I think L'Antibes down the street has much better food, but you're looking at a two hundred bill there for a couple, so value-wise, Till was top notch. The owner was super friendly, and incredibly helpful with the menu. We loved her.

    Being veg makes finding fancy dining a little more difficult. I went here because they were close and a quick peek at the menu showd tofu and a veggie burger. We both got the fried tofu with vegan mac & cheese. I have to be honest, I have had tofu in so many different ways, but this was probably the best I have ever eaten. The place is slightly pricey, but for a weekend outing it is well worth it. A large wine list, full bar with some nice mixes, and although they don't have booths and the tables are a little tight, it is a great atmosphere. We will be back, for sure!

    Selected this place from friends and reviews. Needed a brunch spot in town which was Vegan friendly. Frankly, they knocked it out of the park. Vegan dishes had a equal footing to traditional fare all of which had a vibrant twist and exciting appearance as well as superb on the palate. Only wish we lived closer to Columbus.....

    My first visit here on my birthday. There is another ladies group had birthday party too at next table. It was not busy on Friday night, which was good. Foods we order were good. Only we couldn't enjoy was their daily special seafood pizza. Mussel was main topping on this pizza however mussel taste not match to their pizza sauce. For dessert, Pair sorbet was very good. White paint wall made light and clean image. Overall, I recommend this place.

    I made a reservation for my BD - we hadn't been there since it became Till. I chose it because I am a veg and my husband is not - so we had options. It was 5:30 on a Monday the place was pretty empty. The person who seated us seemed nice but indifferent. The first server was helpful, took our drink order and explained some of the menu items. He must have gone off shift because we got another server. My food was "ok". My husband got a lamb burger and was not asked how he wanted it cooked. It was a little pink but he as he ate more he noticed the inside was raw. The server didn't seem concerned but offered to take it for more cooking. Also my husband called to tell them it was my BD - he wanted it to be special. Not a good experience

    One of the best in Columbus (or anywhere). The restaurant does great twists on standard fare (Pulled Pork Cassoulet with Head Cheese on top) and some true originals. Everything we had was outstanding and the prices are reasonable for the high quality. Also, they still do Vegan dishes (former name was Drangonfly - same chef/owner now) if that is your thing. Definitely will return.

    The food was fantastic, but what I wanted (the mussels) they were out of. I was disappointed,d but of course enjoyed what I did end up ordering (the tofu with mac and cheese). The food did take quite a while to arrive, and we found ourselves waiting longer than normal for our meals, but other than that it was amazing and we'll be back!
