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.

EVERYTHING WAS GREAT AS ALWAYS
We invited a friend who is moving to Columbus from Los Angeles as a new Doctor. Our service was excellent as we had a party 6 and the food was amazing as always. What an enjoyable time. Happy Hour is great!
Tim and Carl are the best!! The culinary team is outstanding. Every dish tastes better then the one before it. This is the best restaurant ever!!! We love you all so much and can’t wait to see you again!!
Carl was our waiter and he was great. He made great recommendations, and even gave us spots to try in Columbus as well (we're new to the area). Everything we ordered had a ton of flavor and came out very quickly. Very calm but not uptight spot. We will be back :).
We are SO sorry that Carrie is leaving. We have loved her excellent service and wish her only the best as she takes this next step in her life.
Wonderful food and great service by Eric!
Our favorite restaurant in Columbus, both for an informal meal at the bar or a really special occasion. Menu is always inventive, with surprising variations on classic dishes (this week we had the Italian bread salad panzanelle, but made with cornbread and including black-eyed peas and bacon!).
Went for a birthday dinner. Food was fantastic and the service was excellent.
good appetizers and services. entree was fine, nothing special. overall good experience.
Always a fantastic experience. Food is always on point, and refreshes the menu often. The star of the show is the staff though. Kind AF. Genuinely happy to see you again when you come often enough too. Favorite place in town these days.
Phenomenal food and courteous staff, wish the ambiance was a little better but that’s honestly just nit picking. Fantastic experience and highly recommended.
A party of four. We each had a different meal. Everyone loved their food. We'll definitely go back regularly.
Our server Tim was super nice and helpful
We celebrated a birthday. We had Daryl Traylor-Atkins as our superb server. His recommendations for entrees were spot-on. The 4 of us loved our meals. The cocktails, followed by wine were all great. What a pleasure dining at this establishment. COVID protocol was followed.
Scallops were amazing
G. Michael's is one of our favorites and does everything very well. Friday night was another great experience.
Service was fantastic. Great cocktails and delicious food!
G. Michaels was FANTASTIC!! We chose it for our anniversary dinner. This was one of our first dining experiences since the vaccines were rolled out.
Currently our best dinner of the year. Carl did a great job at our table.
We will definitely be back.
Best dinner in the last year by far!!!!!
Thanks very much
It was everything literally. Exceptional service and food, great quality. A real gem, highly recommended.
Our server was excellent she was accommodating and attentive to our table.
We are never disappointed when we visit this restaurant. A seasonal regular menu is sprinkled with daily specials. All delicious. Plus the service is awesome. Our server was attentive while remaining unassuming. We celebrated our anniversary, but you don't have to wait for a special occasion. Also Covid protocol is more than adequate.
Be forewarned, the wine isn't kept at cellar temperature. Our bottle was good but we needed to ask for an ice bucket to cool it down even to room temp. Waitress was very courteous and happy to accommodate, however
The walleye and duck breast were great. Desserts too.
So nice to see Carl. Thanks to Jeff for having "our table" set. Exceptional food and service. Tuna and trout were delicious.
I had the duck and it was to die for. Also very delicious Manhattan cocktail.
Dinner was very good and excellent service! If you are going out for a date night I would definitely recommend!
I don’t think you can eat better in Columbus.
The service and meal were outstanding! The patio is absolutely charming. One of the best meals and experiences we’ve had in a long time. We look forward to our next visit.
Great place to eat in German Village. Excellent service and food.
Best restaurant in Columbus, in my opinion. My wife and I went there recently for our anniversary. We were seated in the patio which was a great experience.
The staff is very friendly and go out of their way to take care of you.
The chef is a wizard, the menu changes seasonally, the drinks are amazing, and the general atmosphere is relaxing and quiet.
G Michael's is a great place for a date night or if you just want some incredible food.
Excellent service and delicious food.
It was an amazing experience. It was my 1st time being there. The service was excellent.
This is my favorite Columbus restaurant. I always feel like they appreciate my business and treat me and my guests with great respect. The food is beautifully prepared and presented every time. Highly recommend.
Loved the pork tenderloin special,
Always Excellent! Fabulous food and outstanding service. Delicious Manhattan
Another exceptional meal. Wonderful staff from when we arrive to dessert. We love this place for the food and the friends.
