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.

We had a great evening! We met with friends we don’t get to see very much so there was a lot of catching up to do. Our waiter was quite patient and did not push us in any way to “get on” with our meal. Each person had something different and each entree plate was respectfully clean. We will return for sure!

The renovation is beautiful!!!
Service was professional and attentive but not smothering.
Food and menu choices were outstanding!
Wine list was in transition; they did not have what we choose, but second choice was perfect.
Definitely recommend and will go again soon!

I enjoyed the free birthday sunday and black orchard drink. Food was overpriced. I wish it was more selections on the menu. I ordered the lobster dish. Was a very small portion but taste was good. The bread was delicious

The food was nothing short of wonderful. The presentations were gorgeous, with obvious incredible care taken that each element on the plate be placed and presented exactly right.

But flavor is the important thing and every dish had clear, complex and delicious flavors. All excellent: the watermelon and flowers and the pork belly starters; the incredible sea bass with miso-based soup and the wonderful scallops dish.

I also must call out the delicious bread roll with Irish creamy butter served early. The roll was incredibly light with just the right balance of salty and sweet. The best I think I've ever been served.

What a WONDERFUL experience. The new renovations looked great. My husband and I got an extra treat by having the perfect weather to sit outside and enjoy the beautiful Columbus skyline. Our server was the best, drinks and happy hours were clutch, and the filet was the best we have ever had.

The food portion was extremely small. I ordered the lobster and it was overcooked and rubbery in places and the creamed corn side was only a handful of kernels. Not worth the cost. Service was great and so was the atmosphere.

I enjoyed my meal. I would not recommend the old fashioned cocktail. And do not understand why they had no maraschino cherries. The cherries they served in my coctail were not better! But I don't wanna sound negative because the meal was great and we enjoyed very morsel.

My wife and I have dined at M many times and never been disappointed. And I rarely write reviews because of Cameron Mitchell’s consistency in delivering great dining. But tonight exceeded all previous experiences.
The halibut was the best I’ve ever had. And the tomatoes caprice was unusual, surprising and delightful. Not overwhelmed by mozzarella but complimented by it. And the strawberries under glass desert was equally surprising and delicious. And our server, Eddie, was spot on in recommendations, helpful, friendly and added to the experience. Very well done and in my opinion the best dining in Columbus.

Those of us from the "burbs" often forget how quickly you can get downtown. M is worth the effort. The scallops were cooked to perfection. Everyone in our party enjoyed their entree. The staff has clearly been trained well. The prices are competitive with other fine restaurants in the area

Every morsel was savored. The food and service were impeccable. It can be a bit loud (because of the building design) but that can not overcome the tremendous taste of every dish.

Lovely restaurant and the recent renovations only improved the vibes! The food was fabulous (as usual) and the wine selection is great. They now serve very very nice wines using the Coravin system! The only draw back was one small hiccup, we placed our order for drinks and appetizers, but were ignored for the next solid 20 minutes! Very unusual during past visits here! Beyond this one small thing, everything else was FABULOUS!

Excellent food. Excellent service. Wish a dress code was enforced. Only issue was our anniversary. Wasn’t going to get dessert (too much food!!). The service talked us into one said it was complimentary. Then charged us for it.

Celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary on a recommendation from friends. My wife and I were not disappointed. Food was delicious, service was first class, table selection was perfect. Special mention to Teal, who looked after us. What a charming personality and a delight to chat with. An absolute breath of fresh air and I hope you make it to Lago Di Garda some day.

We've dined at M a few times before and always had a good experience. This was the first time post remodel. And everything just seemed off... I decided to go with their tasting menu with wine pairing. Wine selection was subpar and didn't complement the dishes well. The server in charge of wine pour was very casual and didn't seem like a professional wine expert. On one occasion she was late with the wine and brought it out after I was done with the course. The food selection was good for the most part but duck was hard. Dessert didn't feel like a dessert with 3 tiny truffles that did not resemble true chocolate truffles. Additionally, we were seated by the server station and area had constant traffic and associates congregating. Overall, the experience was not what it used to be and I was a bit disappointed.

The renovations here are wonderful! The food and service are some of the best in the city, no doubt. Two of us had the tasting menu and everything was creative, fresh, balanced with bursts of flavor and absolutely delicious! The other two had a la carte items off the menu, which were equally delicious! My only wish is that they had outdoor heaters. It's starting to get a little chilly in the evenings, and I'm surprised that at a place like M, there aren't any outdoor heaters for guests. Other than that, I look forward to visiting again!

Fabulous evening sitting outside and enjoying the view and food at M.
The appetizers are quite good and surprisingly good value for money.
The mixed drinks were excellent and creative. Bread service absolutely delicious.
Scallops entree was excellent. However, the vegetable entree was not to my liking, tasted bitter and had weird taste combinations.
Overall, I highly recommend M, sitting outside on the patio on a beautiful evening was a wonderful experience, a perfect summer night with a view of the river and the C'bus skyline.
