  • Fantastic Find in Dublin, Ohio
    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    We came from Madison, Ohio to see the Lion King saturday night in Columbus. We decided to stay in Dublin and were looking for a nice place for a good meal. Our daughter, who use to live in the Columbus area, had mentioned Tucci's might be an ideal selection. So we made reservations via Open Table. We can say that we were very pleased with her suggestion. Every thing was perfect as soon as we walked in the door. We were immediately seated and our waiter greeted us promptly. The soups we selected were a meal in themselves..excellent. We decided on the chicken marsala and knew from the presentation the taste would even be better. The entire experience could not have been any more perfect. A must try for a great dining experience!

    My Husband and I went to Tucci's for the first time for our 8th year Anniversary. Sarah Stevenson waited on us and she was wonderful. I am 5 months pregnant and wanted something fun and special to drink since I couldn't celebrate with alcohol. She had the bar make something that was very very tasty and exactly what I was looking for in a non-alcoholic drink. The food was awesome and she gave us her recommendations. I had the Veal Meatloaf and my Husband had the Snapper. Both were delicious, as were the salads and Lobster Bisque. My only suggestion would be to make the Lobster Bisque a little less salty and a bit creamier/thicker but it was still very good. It was a wonderful Anniversary dinner.

    Scored major points with the in-laws when we visited this past Sunday! Knew they did lunch but not brunch on Sundays.

    Nice place but for the money I wish the food selections were more diverse. The staff was friendly if not a little pretentious acting. The food was good not spectacular however my wife found a small piece of the stick butter's wrapper in her mashed potatoes. They were apologetic, replaced her potatoes and gave us a $10 gift certificate but that can of slip up makes you wonder about quality control in the kitchen. I don't go to "nice" places often but this is one we will not rush back to anytime soon.

    I brought my mum to Tucci's for after dinner dessert. We arrived quite late and the last to be served for the evening. Our waitress was terrible. After our food arrived she disappeared. Once finished we waited for at least 15 minutes before we sought out the bartender to see about getting our cheque. Once the waitress returned she said, "I thought you were still eating, that's why I didn't bring you out your cheque." My mum mentioned that we hadn't seen her since we received our food and she began arguing with us. If it wasn't for the manager, and his AMAZING service we would probably not ever return again. He assured us that our experience was not representative of the typical service they are known for. I would definitely return!

    Staff was very accommodating and our waitress Jane was great. Patio was a perfect choice and the weather was like Pasadena. Our group had short ribs, veal meatloaf, and ahi tuna. Jane selected the wine and nailed it. Hot first date turned into breakfast...I think Tucci's has brunch:). Great place.

    We happened upon Tucci's during a visit to Dublin and could not believe that after all these years we had not been there yet! It will, from now on, be our go to place when visiting Columbus and surrounding areas. Everything about this place is gorgeous: the ambiance, the service, the wine list, the food. The mac & cheese with pork belly appetizer was so over the top and decadent it was almost absurd! My husband is a steak fanatic and has been to many, MANY upscale, high-end steak houses all over the nation. He claimed his filet was one of the best he's ever had. My Chicken Marsala was so tasty and tender I didn't need my knife. The accompaniments of asparagus and fingerling potatoes were perfectly seasoned and cooked as well. Amazing place!

    Co celebrating a birthday with a friend. My lasagna wasn't very tasty, hardly any cheese and spicy sausage or sauce. Which surprised me because the server knew I didn't want anything spicy. Only ate about 1/3 of it. My friend had to send her salmon special back because it wasn't cooked enough and was cold when she got it. Server wasn't very knowledgeable and seemed to forget about us from time to time. Overall would not go back. Don't know what all the fuss is about at Tucci's

    From beginning to end it all was such a terrific evening. I've used open table before and have never been disappointed. When we arrived at the restaurant our private requested table was waiting for us. They also held it while we enjoyed cocktails at the bar. When we were ready they immediately took us to our table where we were introduced to our server. It all went beautifully ,the food was amazing and service the same. we will certainly be back soon. Thank you for a unforgettable evening.

    This restaurant was recommended to us by several friends. The ambiance was great, they had an extensive wine list and the service was good. For a restaurant to be known for their steaks, I was quite disappointed with their filet. Maybe I've been spoiled by so many great steakhouses in Las Vegas (where I lived for over 10 years) but this one did not come close to other filets I've had. The more cooked parts of the steak were dry and sort of crumbled in my mouth...I thought that was odd. I will give this restaurant another chance but I will not be ordering steak again...

    We were fortunate to have beautiful weather to sit on the patio. Out wait was just long enough to have a cocktail at the bar. A lovely merlot and a ginger highball. Curious b/c the goofball was served short. The bet salad was nicely dressed with gorgonzola and pecans, my companion enjoyed the house salad. The filet was melt in your mouth! The ahi tuna with sweet potatoes was perfectly presented and just as tasty. However I wish I would would had the filet. Next time.

    Tucci's is a great place to dine. Outdoor patio is beautiful, live jazz on Sundays. Also, there is a deal on their wine list on Sunday night. Enjoy a great bottle for a discount.

    We had dinner here on a Sunday night. The outside dining looked great but we sat inside. The tables inside are very small, food was so so. Slightly under-cooked steak that tasted OK. The sides were plain and uninteresting and the desert menu was very slim with 5 very odd offerings. The wine offerings were good.

    The server brought out the bread and dipping oil with a dead fly in it. I understand that these things happen however there was no apology of any kind in fact the server kind of wrote us off the rest of the evening. Absolutely unreal. The rest of the food was fine. But the lack of concern by the server really was quit irritating. We probably won't be back.

    The luncheon menu is not nearly as interesting as the dinner menu. There was a mistake on the combo specials on the menu and instead of honoring costs contained on the printed menu the waiter presented, we were advised that they were be a $2.00 upcharge when we tried to order. Why not inform the customer when presenting the menu, or hand correct the mistakes until new menus arrive. There were also seating errors. We had reservations for four and one was seated inside while four were seated outside. I was not impressed with Tucci's this time.

    We have been to Tucci's many times before as we live in the area, however, this was not the best dining experience we've had at this fine restaurant. The food was good as usual, but the service was subpar at best. Our server was loud, stiff, milataristic, rigid and overall not friendly. We sat inside (back) near the bar and I would not recommend this location or him ever (at this point). He needs more training. We much refer the bar area, front of the house or the patio.
