    One of the best experiences I’ve had at a restaurant. I didn’t catch our servers name but she truly went above and beyond. We wanted carpaccio but unfortunately they had taken it off the menu, our server had it delivered, yes that’s right, delivered from one of their sister restaurants just for our table, they didn’t even up charge us. So the service was a 10/10, how was the food? Impeccable. We had the beef tortellini, spaghetti and meatballs, flatbread chicken pizza, and the carpaccio. Everything came out in a timely manner, was still hot, and had perfect flavor and seasoning. I would recommend a reservation on the weekends as they can get pretty busy. I would highly, highly recommend Marcella’s to anyone that is thinking of going for a nice lunch or dinner.

    First time visiting Columbus. What a great town! Very impressed with the restaurant scene and the Pearl was awesome! Our waiter Joe was perfect. Attentive and knowledgeable but not pushy or intrusive. (Handsome too) The food was delicious and we had a great table overlooking the sidewalk. Loved it! And highly recommend!!

    We loved celebrating my husband’s birthday at Jeff Ruby’s Steakhouse! The food was perfectly delicious, perfectly prepared, beautifully presented. We were seated in a room that provided a great atmosphere for chatting while still allowing us to enjoy the pianist and his great voice. Our waiter was exceptional in helping us select our appetizers, cocktails, entrees and dessert. We are eager to return!
