I know how terribly difficult it is to run a restaurant in this time of supply and staffing shortages. I so appreciate all the effort Cameron Mitchell puts into continuing to give us a fine dining experience.

Food was excellent, our waiter was one of those people who thinks being slightly rude is charming or that having an attitude somehow adds to the fine dining experience. My husband is generous by nature and tipped well based on that, but not the waiters service. Great wagyu steak, Korean short ribs salmon and shrimp and grits, but my friend didn’t like the calamari.

Our experience was fantastic. Our waitress was so nice and attentive even as busy as they were. The food as usual was perfect. We talk about trying other Cameron Mitchell restaurants but always go to the Linworth location.

We had Will as our server. He was excellent. Truly knew the specials. Great description. Very attentive but not obnoxious. Our 4 entrees were delicious. 2 had walleye, 1 had the pork loin special, and 1 had the filet. Delicious! Love this “original” restaurant of Cameron Mitchell’s.

We were sat at a dirty table even though there were a handful of open ones. Even after someone came to wipe down our table, it had dirty-wet-rag condensation all over it for awhile. The food was “meh,” and there was a VERY loud party in the middle of the restaurant (to the point where I couldn’t hear my husband sitting right across from me)… and no one thought to ask that party to tone it down for the sake of other guests. Both of our dishes (salmon and walleye) were quite under seasoned. For the money, why would we come back here for such a crap experience? (We won’t be back.)

Anniversary dinner on a Saturday night. My wife and I agreed the meals were over-priced and not a good value compared to other fine dining restaurants.

My filet and her duck breasts were both overcooked. We were disappointed in the wine selection. We were told they didn't have a sommelier but the waiter provided two suggestions and samples that were just ok. Which led to an okay bottle of wine (we would've paid much more for better selections).

The bread pudding was too dense and dry and needed to be trimmed down and maybe something drizzled on top. It was a chore to eat and like everything else this night was just ok. The lemon desert was very good though.
We were told that this restaurant has an incredible loyal customer base who seem to enjoy the food and ambience. I have to question if these fellow Central Ohioans ever tried other fine dining restaurants who charge the same?
Service: the host who greeted us at the door was exceptional, warm and friendly. Water had to be requested several times. The waiter (Ryan) was attentive, helpful and did a good job.

Overall for what we spent there was nothing special and would not return.

Another pleasurable evening at this consistantly excellent restaurant. We are opting to dine outside at this time and we really enjoyed the outdoor patio they have set up on the side of the restaurant. Would be great if they could make this a permanent set up!

The food was excellent. I am a huge fan of the salmon served in a broth with edamame, looks like they are substituing cauliflower for romesco, but the dish still holds up. Our server Ahmed did a great job, very prompt and attentive without being instrusive. We were catching up with friends we hadn't seen in over a year and appreciated not feeling rushed.

Our first meal at this restaurant was 24 years ago. It remains one of our favorite places to dine.

We were a party of six and everyone ordered something different. All of us really enjoyed our meals and the service was excellent. Tables are a little close and the restaurant was noisy. The wait staff were not wearing masks which I would have preferred but overall the experience was good.

Chose this for my birthday dinner for the fourth time. Absolutely my favorite Cameron 's. Love the smaller dining area and can't day enough about Keith and Renee who always stop by our table to chat. Every server always does an outstanding job. We had Mohammed Mo last night and he was fabulous. Keith even came from behind me and say a desert down, from each side with candles!!!

I took my 4 kids out to celebrate my daughters 22nd birthday, and also my other daughter leaving for college in a couple weeks. James was our server- he has also served our table, or bar seating, for my boyfriend and I over two years. He made our dinner extra special and not a detail was missed. I love Cameron’s, and am so glad that I was able to share another incredible dining experience with my kids.

It was so nice to be back in a full restaurant that was lively! As always for Cameron's America Bistro, the food presentation, quality, and taste was nothing short of fabulous! Our server, Andrea was perfect, she knew exactly when to step in with service and when to leave us alone with our friends for conversation! Can't wait to go back!

We've sat at the bar the last 3 times we've eaten here, but we won't be doing that again. The bartenders don't work well together and they have their "usuals" that they cater to at the expense of other customers. I literally had to ask for a drink 3 times and never received it.

The soup of the day was scrumptious; and the bread pudding was, as always, to die for.
