Outstanding , creative cuisine with excellent service and a pleasant ambiance in German Village.
Lovely dinner, beautiful ambiance, a little too noisy for my taste, but other than that it was wonderful.
There were server was fantastic. It was a very special birthday dinner
My wife and I enjoyed G. Michael's Bistro & Bar as this was our first visit to this restaurant. The food and service was exceptional. My wife had the scallops and they are the best she ever had. Great wine selection as well, as we were able to find a great bottle of Cabernet Franc on the wine list that we enjoyed with our meal.
Had a lovely dinner and drinks at G. Michael’s. Have been regular customers, but we realized we need to eat here more often. Great service, great manager, great drinks from the bartender, and great valet service. I had the pheasant; my husband had the strip steak. A memorable anniversary for us!
We love G. Michaels! I wish they would space out the dishes a little more. I felt like they brought the entree out right after the appetizer. It would've been nice to have a little time in between the two. I'd rather that then wait too long for my food though :). Always a great place to dine!
Absolutely wonderful restaurant with exceptional appetizers and entrees. Our service was outstanding and will definitely come back.
This restaurant never disappoints, food and service are excellent. And they have been doing this for many, many years. This time we sat in their patio with perfect weather and a quite surrounding. We will keep coming here!!
The chef is incredible! Always delicious and 5 star quality!!
On Sunday, June 3, 2018, I hosted a party of 10 for a family dinner, celebrating a special occasion. Our experience was wonderful; everyone raved about it. The food was interesting and delicious. Keisha, our server, did a truly outstanding job and handled 10 diners with seeming ease. Everyone from the host to the server to the parking attendant were polite, respectful, and made us feel that they truly appreciated our business. G. Michael's has become one of my very favorite restaurants in Columbus. Would highly recommend it for any occasion.
This is one of the few restaurants that never disappoints.
The food was amazing and the service was outstanding.
First experience. Excellent food (appetizer, entree, and dessert), filling portions, large drink selections, and wonderful after dinner coffee. Will definitely return again.
I can’t say enough about how much we love G. Michael’s! One of our favorite spots in Columbus. Menu changes with the season and never disappoints. We ate on the patio this time and the food/service were fabulous.
What a great place to get together and enjoy great food and company. All the starters and main course was off the chain. Would be coming back soon.
G Michaels is my favorite restaurant in German Village the general manger and wait staff are phenomenal. Ever time I visit I feel like I am with Family. The chefs creation are amazing and creative. Hence my wanting to return again and again. Love Tim and always want to be placed in his section each time I visit.
If you are looking for an intimate, amazing and phenomenal experience with exquisite and creative cuisine.... G Michaels should be your choice
We both had different fish dishes for dinner , and they were both great! Try the trout or halibut, you won’t be sorry. The aspargus soup was pretty good, but the mussels with shrimp toast was the appetizer winner. We come here for special occasions, and the food and service are always good. Lori was or server, and she was very good. You will enjoy anything you have at this restaurant, so make reservations and go.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Columbus. My wife and I continue to enjoy dining at this establishment. I would highly recommend it to anyone
G. Michael's continues to be one of our favorite restaurants in German Village. Menu varies with the season and is always delicious. Great staff. Our server was terrific, friendly, and always there when we needed something. But then left us to our conversations. Only gets better the more we go.
Are usual waiter, Timothy always does an amazing job. Always wonderful to see him and the food is consistently great
Great food and service. Fresh and interesting menu. Attentive but not rushed.
Great meal... well-prepared and fresh fish/seafood and very attentive service.
What a great place to eat, one of the best in Columbus.
The service was excellent. Our server Alex was friendly and attentive. The food was excellent. We had the graham cracker calamari which was deliciously different. I had the scallops which were perfectly prepared and paired with the risotto. My entire family including my 2 children ages 11 and 12 enjoyed their food.
The food and service at G. Michael's are always exceptional.
Sat outside on a quiet thursday night. Dustin was waiter. Did excellent job. I had halibut, mashed potatoes, and asparagus. Asparagus was a little woody but meal otherwise excellent. One of my favorite Columbus spots.
Quality not like it used to be. It’s really gone downhill.
It was good food, good experience, and had fun with friends.
Staff was accommodating with the requested seating. Server was attentive. Food was fantastic.
Great dining experience.
Amazing as always
Great Place love going here for all occasions. Low score on food because someone dropped the salt in the entrees. Very accommodating for dietary restrictions.
Scallops were perfectly cooked. Bone marrow appetizer is a must try!
Really enjoyed our dinner at G. Michael's! We celebrated my mother's 92nd birthday and they treated us so well. The staff is friendly and the food fantastic! Will definitely go back.
Found the place to be far too loud and the delivery of our food took surprisingly long. Not my favorite dining experience lately.
