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.

Great choice! Hadn’t visited in while. Everything was great!
EXCELLENT food and wonderful staff
Great place to eat in German Village. Always quality service & food. Highly recommend
G. Michael's is one of our favorite date spots. It is consistently great - service, food, and ambience!
Such a great, well-rounded experience for my boyfriend and I. We enjoyed three courses as well as a few drinks. Server was personable and the attention to detail was incredible. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. Would definitely recommend the Pork Chop Au Poivre if you are a fan of traditional southern comfort foods. Check them out!
David our waiter was great. We went fir our anniversary and top to bottom weren’t at all disappointed.
When I dine at G. Michael's, I'm treated as a valued guest. In fact, the staff makes me feel more like a family member. My favorite server is Carrie but the others are excellent if she isn't available. On this visit, Eric was our server. He is relatively new but immediately fit right in. He is attentive and efficient.
On this occasion, I had the pork chop topped with pulled pork, which was delightful. My wife enjoyed the duck.
Always good food, always pleasant, welcoming staff. Kudos to Jeff and Courtney for keeping the front of the house running.
I love the innovative variety in the menu here. The Creole Mahi was OUTSTANDING! The service is wonderful, attentive but not intrusive.
Tasty food and great service. It was our first visit, and it won't be our last.
Excellent service and the Valentine’s Day pairing was great.
Best Restaurant in the City!!!! Amazing Chef runs a tight kitchen. Always seasonal flavors. Best restaurant owners in the city. Fantastic service every time by everyone. If you haven’t been GO NOW!!!
This was our first time. G Michael’s is truly a hidden gem. Amazing food. Great service from start to finish. The atmosphere is really warm as well. Think we found our new spot!
Robert (valet) welcomed us with immediate attention and appreciation for being there. He's a real asset as the first person we see. Courtney seated us at a wonderful, quiet, romantic table and made sure our flowers were on the table before we arrived. She was courteous and friendly and helpful all evening. Eric served us in a relaxed yet highly professional way. He knows his stuff from the food to the wine and made our meal special. The food was superb, as always. And when it was time to leave Robert was instantly there with our car. It could not have been a more enjoyable experience. These people know how to make diners feel welcome and comfortable. Great job! What's more, it like this every time I dine here!
The food was decadent, the service was lovely, and the ambiance warm and charming. Highly recommend!
Our only complaint is that the menu doesn't change enough. We would come more often.
I loved it! I was not a fan of the parsnip and potato mashed potatoes, they had a grassy finish. Everything else was wonderful my steak was so tender and perfectly cooked! The service was amazing!
Always outstanding! We eat here often. The chef is so creative - we often get the specials which are consistently delicious. The staff is wonderful and very in tune to the current social distancing set up with WAY more than 6' between tables so this is one place we have felt safe to dine in. Highly recommend this neighborhood gem!
The brisket special for Restaurant week was divine.
Service, food and atmosphere were wonderful. Will definitely return!
We visited for Restaurant Week and the food was incredible! Such a great deal and the pork literally melted in our mouths. We will absolutely be back! My new favorite restaurant in Columbus!
Amazing staff and service! Food delicious as always!
Absolutely delicious food and drinks. Great service and a wonderful atmosphere. Would go back and highly recommend to others for a special night out.
A teeny bit pricey, but overall an excellent experience.
Amazing elegant food. Good social distancing. Fantastic restaurant week options
Fantastic meal - went during Restaurant Week but reminded us we need to go more !
Wonderful service, atmosphere and food!
We had a wonderful dinning experience. The menu offered interesting choices and familiar wines. We will be going back to G. Michael's!
The food and service where both amazing! I was truly full satisfied with my meal!
We don’t know why we haven’t come back sooner impeccable service , unique high quality meal -you can’t make it home definitely will be back
We eat here often. Never disappoints! Chef is excellent and creates innovative specials that always delight. Fit for foodies!
Great atmosphere, loved our corner table and the big windows makes it feel very open and spread out, the staff was friendly and can’t wait to go back and try more food!!! :)
Lo ed the meatloaf special, and Carrie was a delightful server as always.
Perfect date night destination! We always have a great meal here & great service!
Driving through Columbus around dinner time. Found a reservation. Just outside of downtown area. Great valet parking. Food and service were excellent. If we lived in Columbus this would be a regular hangout
Had a wonderful experience with our waiter, Carl. Our meals were amazing! Very happy with the precautions taken due to the virus. Always reckoned this restaurant
A+ we will definitely be back. This was our first time.
G. Michael's Bistro & Bar is a favorite romantic spot. Service is always top-notch as is the food. We visited on a cold evening with Covid protocols in place. The seating of other tables was a little closer than I would have preferred given the situation. However, the layout of the restaurant is in 3 separate rooms (bar, conservatory, backroom/kitchen) so there is some natural division provided. Staff members are all friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. I had the brussels sprouts, scallops, chocolate chess pie. My husband had the butternut squash soup, trout, and lemon gingersnap tart. All were prepared beautifully and tasted great. The chocolate chess pie, however, is now my new favorite dessert. I would highly recommend G. Michaels. Enjoy!!
The item on the prefix menu was not available.
My husband and I always choose this restaurant for our special occasions because of the level of service and quality of food and drink. Terribly sad to be leaving Columbus because we will have to find a new “go to” restaurant!
10/10 my favorite restaurant in Columbus. Highly recommend! I love that the menu is always different which guarantees a fresh and high quality meal. Service is outstanding and very attentive.
