Terrible service. Our waitress was no where to be found. Waited over 1.5 hours for our food order. About half the food was served cold.

Thought it was priced a little high for what you actually get. Service was good, ambiance is nice for lunch, but wasn’t blown away.

The food was amazing. Especially the strawberry pie!! Our server Veronica was totally amazing. She was absolutely the best server I have ever come across. She suggested great drink options to go with our meals. She even even took accountability for a food order mistake and corrected it. I will be sure to ask for a table where she is serving. Kudos to an amazing person!!

Great waitress helped me choose a beer and made great good recommendation as well. Loved the appetizers and entrees.

Not too bad of a location to grab a beer and bar food. I disappointed in the quality of service that was provided.

Loved the food and the ambiance. We had the kombochu beer soup and avocado toast. We added an egg to the toast which was delicious. Only complaint is the toast was $8 (great bargain) but the added egg was $4 (and it was cold). Otherwise will definitely be going back.

We were there on a Thursday evening, just the two of us.
Very quiet, not busy. Our waitress was very good, made several good suggestions for the meal as well as other places for the next few days.
Great meat/cheese board to start. My halibut was very good.

Food was amazing!!! Our server was great. It just took a little longer than expected but was so good. I was less than impressed with hostess. She was nice but I was trying to change our reservation but was put on hold so long that I made to the restaurant to change the number in our party.

Great spot to meet up with my brother while he was in town on business. Good variety even though it's a small menu. He's a vegetarian and was happy with the salad and rissotto, as well as the veggie sides. I also enjoyed the squash soup, asparagus salad, and charred broccoli. SO GOOD. Our waiter wasn't as attentive as I would have liked, but it was packed - even for a Tuesday at 630P. I figure there's a lot of conference traffic in the area.

Food was great-especially roast chicken. Drinks on the expensive side. Not as cozy as it could be or the name conjours up. I faced a huge glass internal window and watched dozens of people exiting the hotel lobby.

Absolutely miserable. The hostess was rude and the waitress was rude.
Very hostile. Not sure what set them off. Had to get the food runners to reorder drinks . Only saw our waitress when taking our order and when she brought the check. Don't waste your money!

We went to Columbus Tap for a casual dinner. They have an interesting menu with some unique combinations. My chicken was good, although a tinge dry. My husband's fish and chips were not very good. Very bready and he was not happy with it. The waitress was very friendly although she never inquired why my husband did not eat much of his meal. I hate to leave a not great review, but maybe it will help the restaurant improve.

China can after a series of very elegant quiet venues with excellent gourmet food selections, the restaurant was a disappointment. We did know that it was a gastro pub, the name for which sounds very unappetizing for starters, And because we had a nice formal dinner at a fine dining establishment on Friday night this week we decided to walk over for a more casual dinner on Saturday. It was just shocking to see how the interieur was deliberately dummied down to this cracked tile floor, loud place with pretty much ordinary food. Most of the selections we had were excellent and were the waitress recommendations. She was excellent. The fish with the fish-and-chips was soggy and mushy… the only real criticim we would have.Just a disappointment8ng experience.

The food was reasonably good. We all had steaks (of different kinds) and they were excellent. It is a bit pricey having to add all the veggies and potatoes separately. The cocktails were alright but again a bit pricey and the one glass of wine I had costs $20 which was quite a surprise to me. Our desserts were a little disappointing - it seemed like they forgot the white chocolate/Grand Marnier sauce for our ice cream sundae (or if it was there, it was undetectable); the server did eventually bring some more sauce and it was good. I'd probably go again if I wanted to eat at the hotel where it is located (The Fairmont), but I don't think it would be a destination for me if I wasn't staying there.
