G. Michael's Bistro & Bar
Our goal is to provide our guests with consistently superior food, drink, & service. Guests will be served by friendly, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic people committed to ensure that each & every visit to our restaurant is exceptional. We strive to make each guest feel as if they are our singular concern.
This too, is the goal of our kitchen staff - to prepare every dish as if it were the chef's only concern.
Our menu is a pleasing combination of contemporary American cuisine & many low country influences. The daily fish specials are always highly appreciated & sell out regularly.
The wine list consists 25 offerings by the glass & a nice variety of perennial favorites & well respected small producers.
We look forward to seeing you.

Food and service were both excellent.
Great restaurant! Great food. Highly recommended. One of my favorites in Columbus
Looked and found bistro atmosphere. Moderately priced food with high end sophistication. Outstanding wait staff. Seasonal offerings, we had summer menu.
Shrimp and grits signature appetizer was ethereal. Scallops perfection for main course and coffee creme brûlée devine. A must try if you will be dining in Columbus.
I always try to make a point of getting into G.Michael's when I make it home to Columbus. It never disappoints. The fall prefix menu on Mondays is a treat. It is a great value and an opportunity to try something new and seasonal
Another excellent meal!
Wonderful service and spectacular food. Our waiter was attentive, friendly and professional, and the menu choices interesting and creative. I had fried green tomatoes, salad, and Trout- all were incredible, the sauces there are amazing.
Awesome service and delicious food !!!
This restaurant has been around for a long time, and we've never been disappointed over the years we've been going there. Menu is always interesting without being "over the top", well executed; service excellent; very complete wine list. We were able to sit in the patio, which made the dining experience even better
Great food, great service. Very nice walleye special.
Wonderful food and excellent service!
Everything was great, but we were seated in the bar (my preference), and it got loud
The dinner was excellent; I ordered trout and the execution was both tasty and interesting so it gave me the old delicious flavors with a bit of a surprise of new flavors. Service is always excellent. Parking is easy with valet. One of our most favorite spots.
Best restaurant in Columbus. Best deal during Dine Originals Week.
G. Michael's is my all time favorite choice for an outstanding dinner experience. I have never been disappointed until my recent meal. I trust the chef to offer excellent dishes, so when I saw Bar-B-Que Tofu on the menu, I was delighted. I am a recent convert to Tofu and truly enjoy the many ways it can be prepared. The dish was disappointing in that the Tofu was rather tasteless but the rest of the dish, vegetables and accompanying sauce, was delicious. Of course, I will not change my mind about G. Michael's as a dining choice, but I will avoid any future Tofu creations,
Cutesy place, but the service sucked and the food was worse. Our server was very sweet and chatty, but incredibly slow. We were seated and ignored for 15 minutes before we were even asked about drinks. The food was unbelievably bad. We ate it, but mainly because we hadn’t eaten all day in anticipation of our meal and were just really hungry. This was our first anniversary dinner, and while we definitely got a memorable experience (lol), we will never be back.
This is our fave fancy date night. We like to go Monday’s for the fixed menu and try more of the food with their three course meal.
The meals and service at G. Michael’s are always outstanding.
Truly an enjoyable evening. Sat out on their patio which was nice. Not very large so the noise was quite low. Unfortunately I can not remember the young lady's name that waited on us but she was excellent. The whole staff is very friendly. Being plant base, I was looking forward to trying their BBQ tofu. It did not disappoint. It was delicious. This was our second time at G. Michael's and it was a great experience again. Definitely will continue to go back.
We love G.Michael's! Outstanding, delicious food selections, always great service, and lovely atmosphere - right in the heart of German Village. A must visit if you're in the Columbus area.
Food and service was exquisite as usual!
We sat on the patio, it was a beautiful evening and the patio was quiet and romantic! The food was amazing and the service wonderful! I highly recommend for a romantic date night!
Good value... food and wine were good and not over priced.
We went for happy hour for the first time. Food was delicious and a great price. Cocktails were yummy. We go to G Michaels every year for Valentine's Day and wanted to try out the happy hour for a birthday celebration. Our waitress was very attentive as well.
Although I did find a hair in my first plate. I don't think they adjusted the bill or anything, but did apologize and bring a new one.
Thanks for a great way to enjoy a great restaurant in a miniature and inexpensive way.
Birthday was terrific
Great meal and service!
Thank you for the super service once again. Our family get together was very much enjoyed!
Great food and service as always!
Great job! Haven’t been back in years. Menu became too small years ago.
G. Michael's is one of our Go To places when in Columbus. We have been coming here for years after the OSU football games. Consistently AWESOME, always new specials and selections. Good wine list, knowledgeable and professional wait staff. Had a blast!
I had the ribeye steak and my wife had the shrimp and grits. We will totally be back just for these dishes. They were amazing! Perfectly prepared and delicious. Thank you for making our 10 year anniversary celebration tasty! And they bought us a dessert!
Always awesome and Tim made everything perfect! We love this place!!
The bucatini with bolognese was outstanding. Service was impeccable. We had a great meal and look forward to going back soon.
Nice meal. A little pricey, but, knew that going in. She had scallops and I had salmon. Both were good.
Started our dining experience in the bar for Happy hour with martinis and appetizers. The bar staff was super-friendly and helpful. The bar filled up quickly, obviously a popular spot! We went into the dining room and shared a wonderful ahi tuna meal and another appetizer. Service in the dining room was also great! Would definitely love to return and try more of their great meals!
The service was excellent and the ribeye was delicious and prepare excellently. Also, the sides of asparagus and mashed potatoes were also delicious. Were able to have a private conversation at table.
One of our top three favorite restaurants in Columbus
Third time here, wonderful food and atmosphere!
Unique and delicious. Relaxing, intimate atmosphere. Valet parking for $5 is excellent!
Always fantastic service, food and overall evening!
Great food and great atmosphere!
Absolutely. Food and service was fantastic! Loved it!
