Contemporary American
When you walk into M Restaurant, Cameron Mitchell’s marquee restaurant & bar, you understand. You are not just out on the town. You are in another place entirely — South Beach, perhaps. You’re surrounded by beauty. A lovely perspective of Downtown Columbus. An outdoor terrace overlooking the Scioto riverfront. Light woods and luxurious fabrics. A dramatically lit bar. Artfully plated dishes of eclectic American cuisine, influenced by the assertive flavors of Pacific Rim & Europe. All enhanced by impeccable service and a wine list considered one of the nation's best.

My lamb was cooked medium. I ask for medium rare. I didn’t say anything, Not sure why. Our coffee never got refilled, our wine rarely got poured, and our water was slow to get refilled.

We've been to M probably 6 times over a number of years. Our last two visits were big disappointments, the last one the worst. I used to tell people it's the best restaurant in Columbus, won't do that anymore. The meal was just not up to top of class restaurant standards and we've been to some great restaurants. under seasoned, sauces with no flavor, to be honest could cook what we had at home better ourselves for a lot less than the $150 bill we had that evening (wine not included). It's not the ambiance or service per se, it's that the food does not live up to the standards of the prices they charge and the standards for a fine restaurant. I would also say that, in our view, they are very stuck menu wise. it has not changed over the years, it's not a bad menu but you'd expect some innovation. when you see that in a restaurant it's usually a bad sign.

Great restaurant, great food, and great service This was our first time here, and we were celebrating our 13th Anniversary. Linda, our waitress was so welcoming and gave us the attention that we needed for first timers. The food was of great quality and well priced. We will definitely recommend and come again.

Great food and crafty cocktails, this place is worth it. I had the rack of lamb with the caterpillar sushi appetizer and I was very pleased with everything. I will be returning here as it is a perfect spot for date nights or special occasion dinners. It’s located in a pretty quiet spot I honestly didn’t know if I was in the right place when I pulled up but I found this to be a positive thing because there was no headache about pulling up to the valet or dealing with traffic. I’ll definitely return here!

Dining at M is an excellent experience. Both the ambiance and service are second to none in our view.
It was a repeat visit for us and while we thought M was tremendous overall, there are two suggestions, not criticisms, that we hadn't seen previously. Our feeling was the menu was too limiting. The salads
were quite limited and only 1 kind of soup. However, that's tempered by the fact that our server Vince was able to accommodate both of us with some things not on the menu. Second, in our opinion the food portions were too small. My wife's mashed potatoes, my Duck entree and vegetable could have been larger. Even the triple chocolate desert was rather small, but to be fair, it was taken off our bill in honor of our forty-fifth anniversary. Nonetheless we would make a return visit anytime possible. M is terrific!

I’ve always given M rave reviews. My overall visit was really nice. Our server was very attentive and polite. My entree was the duck and my shareable sides were the asparagus and macaroni and cheese (not with lobster) my date’s entree was the NY strip steak. My food was cooked how I requested but was luke warm the sides were luke warm as well. I assumed it was due to the restaurant being really busy (Vday weekend).

I loved coming here for something special but have to say this was the first time I was let down. It seems to have lost its sparkle for me and can’t say I’ll ever be back. My date and I were stuck at a little table in the corner next to the freezing cold window and my seat on the booth side had a huge dip in it causing my back to hurt. The service was just ok not above and beyond like many other times. The food was mediocre and forgettable. I saved room for desert but what I wanted had been removed from the menu. Overall pretty disappointing for a special occasion. For the price and what I was expecting from the past it just doesn’t do it for me anymore.

Saturday 02/16 was my first time at the M. It was better than expected. My server Marshal was the highlight of my visit. He was very professional, very honest, and made my visit very enjoyable. The meal that Marshal recommended to me was very filling and tasted very good. The drink that he recommended was even better. I plan on visiting the M again very soon.

We've always really enjoyed the food at M. It's a bit pricey, but mostly worth the cost. The cocktails, IMO, are over-priced a bit. But everything else is about right. For some reason, this last time, our service was slow. We probably waited 45 minutes between apps and mains. But it was packed, to be fair, since it was the weekend after Valentine's. Everyone was friendly to us, and the food was perfectly prepped.

Never disappoints, although we're very happy to learn that the restaurant is about to be updated and refreshed. No matter how good the food and service, if the setting is tired and worn, the overall experience comes up a little short. Linda has been our server more times than we can count - we always ask for her - and as always, she was delightful, knowledgeable and helpful. M and the Guild House are without doubt the bright stars in the Cameron Mitchell constellation.

Hostess and waitstaff were friendly, pleasant, and informative. Our waiter was respectful of our space and we never felt rushed even when the place became filled. It was hard to chose from the menu because everything sounded so good! I ordered the duck and my wife ordered the lamb. We’re not big eaters and we found the portions perfect for us (some may want more). Our meals were absolutely delicious... I commented to the waiter that I’ve never had duck that seemed properly prepared. He was so confident in their duck he offered to replace it if it was not to my liking. It did not disappoint.

Overall a very nice place to eat. The portions are a bit small, and while perfect for us, may be too small for others. The bill was a bit high, but then again, we feel we got what we paid for... outstanding food and great service!

There entire dining experience was perfect. The Chilean Sea Bass in the Thai broth was amazing. The texture of the fish was unlike any other. My wife had the Surf and Turf which was equally superb. Usually really large shrimp, like the one served, come out rubbery or tough. The chefs found the perfect was to cook it. We will definitely make return trips.

The disappointment was with the service. We waited 30 minutes after we received our beverages to order our food. When the food arrived two of the dishes were not hot - steak bowls! They had to be returned to the kitchen. Our wait staff was stressed and not pleasant. The restaurant was loud which effected the ambiance. It had been several years since we had been to M. We noticed a considerable change.

We love the food and the setting, the tables are a little cramped, I’d prefer not to hear everyone’s convos. My husband and I haven’t been out since September because our son had brain surgery in Sept and again in Oct. so Valentines was our 16th anniversary and we were able to get a sitter. The wait for our table I will say last less than last year. Once we got our table we immediately ordered a Stella and Vodka and Cranberry. It took 47 mins to get those! Even after I asked our waiter to check on our drinks. Our appetizers arrived incorrect, we still didn’t have our drinks after the corrected appetizers arrived. Food was wonderful as always! I was disspointed because we just wanted a night out. I would love for the tables to not be so close too. We wanted to enjoy ourselves in a lovely evening, but we could barely hear each other over the couple next to us.
