I had eaten here once before, and wanted to take my fiancé, brother and sister-in-law there for dinner before the Columbus Jazz Orchestra concert. The meal was spectacular and Alex provided great service! The two at our table who had the flounder offered opinion that the crust was too heavy, otherwise delicious. My brother and I adored the duck. I had the lemon ginger snap tart for dessert and savored every bite!
Always a delicious meal and this was superb. Was a birthday and I felt special there. Server was so pleasant and helpful in decision regarding course selections. We each had one of the specials...skirt steak was flavorful but slightly tough. Flounder was the best I've ever had as were the bacon wrapped scallops which accompanied the fish. Graham cracker calamari was delicious and tender. Chocolate pot de creme was smooth and a perfect end to a great meal. Valet attendant was on the spot...retrieved our car when saw us on the way and offered his arm to assist on the exterior steps.
Excellent meal and service. We went for a birthday dinner with friends. It was their first time there and they will definitely be back.
Sunday meal, seating professionally set, nice bar set up, quickly seated nice offering of appetizers and main courses, each with a unique spin on the ingredients. The Menu offered Many combinations I have not seen before. When what we ordered was served the presentation was a feast for the eyes as well as the palate. All food arrived in a timely fashion. My only regret was we did not order desert, as the meal was more than enough considering it was impossible to leave any amount of each course behind. Maybe the next time, I would recommend to anyone wanting to impress, or if you are looking for that one step better.
We had an early dinner after a matinee at the Ohio Theater. Service and cuisine were both excellent. Noise level was fine until around 6:30 when it became fairly noisy.
For starters, we shared the brussell sprouts with blue cheese and the calimari. Both were fabulous and had unique flavor profiles.
Two of our party had the duck (menu item) which was extremely tender. Another had the very flavorful and tender lamb -- two different cuts served medium rare. The flounder special with basmati rice was good but the flounder was a bit dry.
We had an excellent barbaresco from the Captain's list -- about 2x retail price.
Food and service are excellent. Prices are good for the excellent quality obtained. We are going to go to this restaurant more often.
The food was amazing, we decided to try some things on the menu that we may not typically choose and we were not disappointed. Their version of calamari was the best I have ever had and I went for the quail and scallops because it was a combination I would never have otherwise chosen and it was amazing. The service was perfect. When we first sat down the heat was blasting on our table and all I had to do was ask once for them to fix the issue and it was fixed and they were very nice about it. The atmosphere is ver cozy and upscale yet casual and comfortable. Not too loud so we could carry on a very comfortable conversation with each other. The bread pudding was also delicious. I wish this place was in Indy, I would go there all the time.
Great food, great service!!!
Have been to this restaurant on many occasions and must say this last experience was not good. Pricy food that wasn’t flavorful and a pushy waiter who wanted to turn the table quickly. When asked to substitute a vegetable was told no. I have been to many fine restaurants who would never consider that an issue. Will think twice before returning.
Best in town!
I can't believe I've lived in Columbus for three years and Saturday was the first time I've eaten here. It was fantastic, my fiance and I were blown away with the service, cocktails, and the food. We're already planning our next date time night. Foodies delight!
When I think the food can't get any better than our previous visit, it does. Always a variety of fish options which makes it hard to decide what to eat. The specials are amazing, but my husband can't not order the shrimp and grits. Thanks for another great evening!!!!!!!
First time eating here and would have to say the best meal we've ever had in Columbus. Staff provided excellent service and were excited to tell you about the menu. Made our birthday celebration a night to remember. Will definitely be back!
The food and service were both great. Overall a good experience!
Amazing service as always, thank you Tim! Food was outstanding. Great seared tuna appetizer as well as the mussels appetizer. Always cooked perfectly. You can’t go wrong with the Fried chicken, it is the best! Cocktails are great too and nice wine list. G. Michael’s never disappoints!
60th bday celebration; 6 people. Not a quiet place which we added to. Great atmosphere; waitress wonderful. Most food really good, some we didn’t care for( skip the salads). My strip pricey, but awesome!
The best in columbus
Great food. Wonderful atmosphere. We’ll be back
We had an absolutely wonderful experience and dinner at G. Michael's! I thoroughly enjoyed all parts of my meal, from the delicious calamari and brussel sprouts we had as appetizers to the delicious chicken deliciousness and the chocolate dessert. Service was spot on and I love the atmosphere of both the bar and the dining room.
My new favorite restaurant! Food and service were outstanding!!
First time experience. Enjoyed the small bar for a cocktail prior to meeting friends for dinner. Dinner was enjoyable, but not wow worthy. The brussel sprout appetizer seemed under cooked and the blue cheese didn't really work well together for me anyway. Server was good in my book because he didn't over manage us!
The most creative menu in Columbus, and the fact that it changes seasonly.
Had a lovely dinner at G Michaels! The entire staff was pleasant and helpful, and the food was delicious. (The chicken fried buffalo was ridiculously good as was the chili-rubbed pork.) This was our first time there, and it did not disappoint!
We flew into town from DC for a lacrosse tournament and was looking for a good dinner with my son. This place was exceptional on all counts! Highly recommend!
Fabulous food and service. We got an early reservation which was great because once it filled up and hit a hit noisier we were leaving
We simply love this restaurant. Have visited many times and are always pleased. Wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Food is outstanding always.
Our Valentines meals were delicious. We missed the notice that it was prix fixe that day but the choices were varied. My steak was perfect and sides with it well chosen. My husband’s scallops were also perfectly done.
We have celebrated Valentine’s Day every year of our marriage with dinner at G Michael’s and have never been disappointed.
Great Local Restaurant with Louisiana influences. Fixed Price Mondays are a great deal. Professional wait staff. Restaurant offers 4 distinct environments for dining options-bar, central area with lots of light and windows, outdoor patio, and back area with low light and incorporating the kitchen prep area.
The food is always amazing and the service is impeccable.
I've been enjoying G. Michael's for the last 20 or so years. It's always a great place to go. Food is consistently excellent, service is also excellent and friendly. I wear jeans and a nice shirt typically and feel right at home, while others get dressed up for a fun date night. It's comfortable to do either. Can't say enough compliments about the owner, Jeff, and Darrel, our favorite waiter. Just very nice people serving delicious food. Try it!
The mussels appetizer was good and my duck entre was excellent. We were placed in the front alcove which was drafty and noisy because the door kept banging shut every time someone came in or went out. Our neighboring table was very loud but that is not something the restaurant can do much about. By 9, they run out of some dishes. Overall I have always liked this place but ask to be seated in the inner room
Food is consistently excellent, service is always great. One of our favorite restaurants.
One of the best in Columbus!
Excellent, as always! Jeff and wait staff the best!!
Another great dinner at G Michael's! Our guests had never eaten there before, and enjoyed it very much. Waiter did a wonderful job getting us out in time for the ballet without feeling rushed.
Lovely experience from start to finish.
excellent highly varying seasonal menu; never the same twice; strongly recommend
As always, our dinners were exceptional. We tried the chicken liver appetizer and it was outstanding! I have never had a meal there that wasn't delicious. Their plate presentation is awesome. I will continue to dine here frequently.
