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.

Good not great. Perhaps our hopes for "M" were too high. The specialty cocktails were creative. The wagu beef slider appetizer was the best part of the meal. Everything else tasted over-seasoned (to me) and uninspired. Sorry I cannot recommend this one. But the ambiance is beautiful and there are a number of romantic tables.

All great til we got ready to leave and I grabbed my handbag along with a “wooly” black caterpillar. It scratched my fingers and , of course, not knowing what it was as it was low lighting I screamed and flung it across the table. Other than that e perimeter all was fine😬

Went for my wife's birthday. We like M for special occasions as the food is very good and we have had excellent service with Deb as our server. We have gone to M over the past 7 years and the menu has stayed very much the same. The evening specials are very good and worth one's consideration. However, the menu needs to rotate a bit more, say quarterly to showcase the talents of the chef and to keep the dining experience fresh. It's an expensive place and to have a menu that is static is not encouraging. The corporate office (this is a Camron Mitchell Restaurant) needs to give the chef more latitude to explore and create. I appreciate consistent quality, but I also expect a menu that features fresh ingredients depending on the time of year. Camron Mitchell Corp. has been featured at the James Beard House (which we have attended over the years) so the expectation for variety and a dynamic dining experience should be within the capability of the kitchen at M. I will return but I hope that I will also be greeted with some new creations on the menu to entice me to return more often.

Liza was our server and we can’t give her enough acolades on her fine dining service. She was amazing to watch in her subtle attention to our table, flatware, cleanliness of the table cloth, knowledge of the menu, personality etc. She made a birthday evening exceptional. The food and bar offerings were amazing as well. Thank you Liza and M for a wonderful dining experience.

This place is spec-freaking-tacular!

My husband brought me here for our 7 year wedding anniversary (11 years together total...the Lord himself knows I have earned this dinner).

They start you out with warm bread and salted butter. Fabulous!!

Our drinks:

The Black Orchid: SOOO good. I'm not a big drinker, and to be honest I have no idea what was in it, but it's good. Very good.

The Billionaire: OMG! AS soon as I took a drink, it was so strong the hairs on my arm immediately stood up. One drink was all it took. I was done (my husband did like this and how strong it was....I'm a super lightweight).

The Margarita: Nope. This isn't your normal margarita and is had some jalapeno liquor in it. I didn't find it refreshing or good in any way. My husband didn't really enjoy it either, however, he did drink the whole thing and was feeling quite nice afterwards.

Our appetizers:

Caesar Salad: Ok...I've def had better. Their croutons are extremely mini and I've had better dressing.

Beet Salad with goat cheese and pistachios: Super yum!! I do with there was more pistachio crumble (that's what I'm calling it because the pieces of pistachio are soooooooooo super tiny you wouldn't know they were there if it was noted on the menu).

Scallops: I don't do scallops because I find them repulsive and disgusting, however, my husband does scallops and he said this dish was very good. I believe he had it gone in under 2 minutes. I did taste the sauce and puree that came with the scallops and it was very tasty.

Main course:

My husband and I were both unoriginal and went with the safe choice: the chicken. It was melt in your mouth good. Very flavorful and extremely tender. It comes with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Best chicken dish I have EVER had. Excellent.

M is a fairly pricey venue. The food was all very good, but just costed too darn much. Service was meh. When we wanted something we had to beckon our server. He still forgot items and had to be reminded. The servers all huddled behind a screen, rather than interacting with the patrons. It was Easter and we were told that we couldn't be accommodated until 4. We arrived to an almost half empty restaurant. We had a nine year old and a sixteen year old, but no food came for an hour! The adults were okay visiting, but you have got to feed the kids! At $500 for 3 adults and 2 kids...it was just okay...

I've been very fortunate to get to eat at several spectacular restaurants but the one may top the list! From the moment we arrived, we knew we were in for a treat by the ambiance but the staff made it feel that we could relax. All of our dishes were timed perfectly. The spicy tuna roll was probably one of the best sushi rolls I've ever had. I had the black orchid cocktail-probably one of the coolest/delicious cocktails I've ever been entitled too! Our dinners consisted of the steak (for him) and salmon (for me)-both were amazing! I'm pretty sure we smiled after each bite! Our server Tori made the meal even better! When we didn't think the meal could get any better, we both had dessert with the 100 year port. Both were spectacular! This was definitely an experience and meal we won't forget.

I visit Columbus once a year, and if I'm able to get out for a great meal, M is the place I go. The food is fantastic and the atmosphere is very pleasant. At our latest visit, we were handed menus, but then seemed to get neglected for a moment. Once we gained a server's attention, he and the manager went into overdrive, delivering exceptional service and a wonderful meal. I'd never had an issue here before and would have certainly overlooked what happened as the function of a busy restaurant on a busy weekend. What I experienced, however, has confirmed my conviction that M provides one of the most remarkable dining experiences, not only in Columbus, but also as compared to some of the world's great cities with their best restaurants.
