It is what it is. The dining room has no ambiance, no back bar to support the dining room which means drinks take longer coming from the main bar and the menu doesn’t change. For all that, it’s the most convenient place to take someone staying on campus. It would be nice if there was outdoor seating, which I believe would truly enhance their fall and spring business and allow diners to take advantage of the campus views.

Not the best experience. Got the wrong toast, eggs Benedict served without hollandaise sauce and then when requested it was ice cold, and huevos rancheros below average. Would not return

I’m a little taken aback by the increased cost of the salad bar from $7.99 to $17.00. That is quite the increase with no “heads up” prior to purchase. So many staff and faculty go to the Bistro for lunch - that should be interesting to see whom is willing to pay $17. Service and salad bar are excellent.

We had a larger group come for brunch and I appreciated how the restaurant put our group at a round table. The food was good but the service was slow (likely due to our large party). The only recommendation I have is to add a larger drink selection to their brunch menu.

Pleasantly surprised for a campus hotel. The food was very good and excellent value. It is now on our radar for future visits. Great place for breakfast. We enjoyed the corned beef hash and crab hash dishes.

We all had the buffet. The food selection was excellent. The only criticism is that the server, although very nice and rather efficient when we she needed to do something, was rather slow at the major points along the way (initial greeting, asking if we were ready for bill) and should have checked in on refreshing our beverages more often.

The food was decent for the price and the restaurant wasn’t busy so we could hear each other at our big table well. Service was pretty slow- took about 45 minutes to an hour to get our food. Very traditional style with white table cloths and feels a little dated.

Salad bar is outstanding
Main courses were not good. Cold and not very good tasting, spices etc
Desserts good
Service was horrible. Had to ask for refills, used plates to be taken away and at one point had to track down another server to find ours.
Overall not sure I will be back.

We opted to dine here before a concert at the Schott. Waited 10 mins just for water glasses and menus. Very slow service, fairly limited and so so menu. Wine menu had NO prices listed. Can’t say I’ll ever return.

Steak Frites was very good though the plate was overload ed with frites. Risotto was overcooked and certainly not freshly made. Blackened chicken breast was tiny. And when we asked for bread we were told they had none. Seriously?

Our party of 4 was generally pleased with the food, although 2 of us were given food that was overcooked relative to what we had ordered. We didn't return our meals, but did mention it to our server. The table service was consistently very slow. Two of our party ordered a second beverage, and when they hadn't arrived by the time we were ready to pay our bill, we cancelled the order --- only to have the beverages delivered to our table 5 or 10 minutes later as we were departing. In addition, our place settings included bread plates and knives, but we realized late in the meal that at no point were we offered any bread. In summary, the experience was good, but certainly not something with which the restaurant management should be pleased.

Service depends on how busy they are and how focused the servers are on cleaning up their stations or breaking down before their shift ends. If you later in the afternoon for a later lunch expect to wait for your server and have to chase them down to pay out.

Went for convenience after a football game with my OSU student. Then menu looked really good but the game day menu was limited (which I get). My daughter and I had cheeseburgers and they just weren't very good. There was a beer/cocktail menu but no wine list apparently. I think by son liked the salmon and my husband liked the Reuben. The atmosphere was just kind of strange.

This restaurant is a little hidden gem! From the table settings to the food there is detail in the presentation. The staff is wonderful and my compliments to the Chef! What a wonderful experience on a week day evening before a live event or just everyday dining!

Our second visit to the Blackwell. Everything was great, but I would STRONGLY recommend that the rice coquettes be just a little less “fried”. They were so overdone that one could not eat them. Other than that, all was great.

We went for a pre-concert dinner. We had reservations, but still had to wait 30 minutes. I felt bad cause others did not have reservations and were not going to get in. Once we got in there were many empty tables and a limited number of servers. They were only serving a limited dinner menu. I wonder why they don’t do buffet for pre-event meals like they do at lunch. The location can’t be beat for a campus event.

We had to wait for the table we reserved and then it was very obviously given away to some walk-ins. Then, we waited some more. The waitress never smiled and was generally inept. She forgot who got what, never brought someone's drink, and never apologized for any of it. Just seemed to not care. Food was okay.

Even with reservations, we did not receive our drinks for one hour, and did not get our food for an hour and a half. The restaurant was basically empty. We were a table of 8. The server was a college kid, running around. Not her fault. The food was delicious. Presentation was excellent. However we didn’t get to enjoy it because we had to leave after an hour and 45 minutes. That should be enough time to get dinner and pay your bill. We definitely weren’t the only ones either. This was a problem across tables.

Location is great for a pre event meal at The Schott. Unfortunately staff did not seem prepared for the crowd they were expecting , not sure why as I’m sure they have ore event diners frequently.
Service was slow and restaurant only 1/3 full. Just allow for plenty of time. The location and quiet atmosphere outweigh the slower than normal service.

Delivered my GF food as regular so had to be remade, even though I ordered off the GF menu. Server was good and attentive but seemed unsure/new. Food was fairly unflavorful and took quite a long time for my type of order (chili and salad). They said that there were a lot of room service orders at the same time?

For a low-key business lunch or just a quiet place to have a glass of wine and salad, Bistro 2110 is really quite good. With valet parking and a nice dining room, it really should be busier than it is. One word of caution: The servers are OSU students. They haven't really been trained to work in top restaurants, so a little patience will be needed.

The food was awful, we ask for chicken but we did not know what was it. The service to slow and we were the only table at 5 pm. My girls ask for the burger and the meat was burn they did not touch it!!! I usually go to eat to every kind of food and restaurant but this one I do not recommend it. I usually eat 3 or 4 times in restaurant and now that we are on vacation we have the Three meals in restaurants. So, believe me about this recommendation.
