The Columbus Fish Market that I knew and loved is no longer, not sure if they were bought by another company but the food is subpar to what I used to enjoy. The fish and menu used to be changed daily, some of the previous menu items are still there but in much smaller portions. The mojito, my wife's favorite drink, tasted like nothing but simple syrup and mint, still not sure if they even added rum. Very sad to see the place take such a down turn but I doubt we will be going back again.
Overall we enjoyed our meals, although we have both ordered tastier items off of the menu. We went for New Year's Eve and chose the specials they had to offer. For the price we have had better dinners here, but understand that on holidays things aren't always going to be perfect. Regardless of the food, service was great!
Food was wonderful as always. Our waiter, while being very nice, did miss a couple of things. No shrimp fork with the shrimp cocktail. No refill on my coffee when I asked. No bread offered until we asked. The asparagus was like giant trees, too tough at this size. Would prefer small asparagus that are much more tender.
I gave the waiter my Landry's select card, but when I got home I received an email that I had received "0" points.
The good is amazing and atmosphere is lovely. Looking forward to return visit.
it was Christmas: so with 6:45 reservation we were seated at 7:15, and service was below par for them. Squash undercooked in salad
Next holiday I would skip going out as restaurant struggled to keep their usual quality
I have usually had a pleasant time at this restaurant, but hadn't been there in awhile. My experience last night was extremely disappointing. It took about 25 minutes for server to show up to take our drink order. It took almost an hour to get our food after we ordered it. When our food arrived, it was only slightly above room temperature. Our Server seemed new and poorly trained. I spoke to a manager as we were leaving, and he was largely dismissive, saying that they hadn't expected the amount of customers that they received. It seemed like an odd comment because the restaurant has been around for years, it didn't seem that crowded, and I have seen it much more so on numerous occasions. Needless to say, i will not be returning.
The place was half full but one has to assume they were at half staff (Christmas Day dinner). It took 30 minutes to get a glass of wine and only after the waiter (who could care less) repeatedly told me that the bar was backed up (really? How long does it take to pour wine into a glass). The food was sporadically delivered, and half of it was cold and dried oiy. The dessert was good and coffee was hot....so there's that. In a word, disappointing!
Our family went for Christmas Eve dinner. Service was great, the food was even better. We have been here before and will return in the future. My only complaint was my Stuff fish special was a little on the dry side, but to be honest we had one of the latest reservations so I'm sure that had something to do with it as it was probably prepared much earlier. It was still very good.
XMas eve dinner...never again! Waited over 15 minutes for our drinks!! Food came out cold, chicken parmigiana, fish and chips. Before ordering the shrimp scampi capellini asked if it was very spicy since sauce indicated made with Tabasco sauce...was told not spicy at all so orderd it. Boy was our waiter wrong!!! took a bite (and I like spicy) but could not eat more than 3 bites. Told waiter about it and he said they can remake it without using the Tabasco sauce; now wouldn't you think he would have mentioned that before I had ordered it. Had to eat all by myself due to the remake? Restaurant closed at 9:00pm; our reservation was at 7:30, and we were the last 3 tables in the whole restaurants...that tells the story. Never again!
Second year in a row we have went for Christmas Eve and I had to go ask the Manager for assistance. Service was so incredibly slow - it took forever to even get water and bread. There were 9 of us. Food was just ok, our family was disappointed. Waiter gave us attitude when we asked for our checks to be split 3 ways too.
