Second time here - a BIG fan of Cameron Mitchell anything - this does not disappoint! Great job!
Service was rather slow, especially for a slow night. The booth was nice but, despite not being busy, they seated most everyone back in the same corner instead of spreading people out for more privacy. They also seated us right by a loud table of ladies that sounded like they were 4 bottles of wine ahead of us. The Caesar salad was gross and weird tasting and the steaks just mediocre at best. The lobster potatoes shouldn’t be the best part of a meal this expensive. We just expected more from a CM restaurant for our anniversary. For the money and better value go to JEFF Ruby or The Top!
Our server Vince was great. Appetizers were delicious. Ordered the duck and it was terrible. Rubbery skin, unrendered fat. Worst duck I’ve ever had. Very disappointing.
Our server was wonderful and the food was excellent!
Entree was barely warm. This restaurant does not maintain its previous standards.
Excellent service and environment. Menu very up scale however, selections could be a little broader.
Still great food, however the restaurant itself is dated and the furnishings are warm. This space deserves an update.....soon. The food and service far outperform the space.
Of course we wanted it to be a special dinner it was for Mother's Day! Our server spent the entire time apologizing for everything But continuing to not do anything correctly. Not only apologizing but having an excuse for why things weren't being done correctly. A well-stated apology is one thing but having an excuse for inappropriateness over and over again is not acceptable. Salads came out within minutes of our appetizers I had to tell the server no and to take them back. Our server explained that they just weren't used to this anymore since they aren't open very often so that's where the confusion was. This is supposed to be a fine dining restaurants there's no confusion in fine dining. When we were eating our salads we noticed the other tables were getting delicious looking bread. We asked another another server about it then finally our server came out and we asked her and she explained that the reason that she hadn't brought it to us it's because we were outside taking pictures when the salads came so she wanted to wait and then she just forgot. Then they decided to move chairs all around us beside us we were waiting for them to get out the vacuum cleaner it was extremely tacky. When our mother went to the bathroom we didn't know it but she complained to the front of the house several people came to apologize again our server had reasons why the manager offer to take off desserts which I think you did but seriously this was not a fine dining experience. The food was excellent but honestly the service is half of the fine dining experience in my opinion and it was very frustrating today to realize we've made a bad choice. There are certainly plenty of amazing restaurants to eat in Columbus I do not recommend this one
Best restaurant in Columbus. The food is always great. Our server Linda was amazing as well as the bar staff and especially Chris.
We gave M another try after having a below average experience a few months ago...mostly because we liked their cocktails. We had exactly the same experience this time. The food is wildly overpriced for what it is. My husband had the caesar salad that looked like it was 4 days old. My kale salad was all kale and minimal other ingredients - zero flavor. My husband had steak in a bowl, which is supposed to be steak over potatoes. The steak was ok, but they gave him about 4 tiny potatoes. I had the seabass...it had no flavor whatsoever. Both entrees were $47 or $49. Cocktails were fine. Restaurant is dated and tired. It was literally almost empty. With all of the other restaurants in Columbus, we won't go back.
We have been to this restaurant a number of times in the last year and a half. We have continued to choose the restaurant because of the upscale venue, nice decor, and one of the better menus in all of Columbus—and certainly one of the best, if not the best, menu of all the Cameron Mitchell restaurants. Last year we came in a party of three, and as per usual, the food was excellent. The duck, scallops, and steak continue to be favorites of ours to this day. However, we waited 20 minutes before our server brought us menus, another 20 minutes before she came back to take our orders, and after we had received our food we never saw her again. We spent so long waiting for the check we ended up leaving cash on the table and going home. Most recently, we had a reservation for 8:15 pm and we arrived at 8:10 pm. We were told they were waiting on our table to clear and we would be seated shortly. After 15 minutes we were again reassured the party was paying their bill and leaving soon. Well, 45 minutes later we still had not been seated, the manager said there was nothing he could do, and despite the hostess telling us the party seated at what would be our table had already been there for 3 hours, the staff refused to politely ask the party if they could move to the bar or another location in the restaurant. Why have reservations available if you cannot actually seat people at their reserved time? We arrived on time as a party of 7 and were seated one hour late to our table. We were given complimentary appetizers as an apology for our wait, and thankfully, our server Amanda was wonderful. The food was excellent; the only redeeming factor. That being said, the situation was handled so poorly by the GM, and one particularly rude hostess, that despite the beautiful venue and great food, we have had so many poor experiences here with the service that I felt compelled to write this review. We will not be returning.
Food and service were wonderful. We always enjoy ourselves when we dine here.
Great service from our waiter Shawn (Sean?). Food was great as usual. Hope to attend again soon.
Never been before but will be going back. Everything tasted was perfect.
Slightly disappointed...waitress was very nice but we ended up waiting more than 20 minutes between the end of our appetizers and main meal...dessert was not up to our expectations....French fries were very ordinary for $10...beautiful restaurant but will not come back...over rated...trust me...I have eaten better for less
This is a beautiful, romantic restaurant! But a bit noisy. Service was outstanding! Our server smiled warmly and checked on us at appropriate intervals, and graciously accommodated our special requests, and surprised me with a free birthday dessert, lit candle included! The only disappointment: our steak was a little too fatty around the edges. (Didn’t have the heart to complain; just ate around the fatty part.) Still, the overall experience was wonderful. And the Vanilla Old Fashioned was probably the best Old Fashioned ever!
Excellent meal and service.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and the service provided to us last weekend at M. We will be back soon!
Excellent as usual -our favorite restaurant in Columbus.
We always have a wonderful dining experience at M’s. From the cocktails to the desserts and everything in between, it is always perfect! I always enjoy starting off with a Black orchid cocktail which I highly recommend! You won’t ever be disappointed with anything you order! Cannot wait til the next time I go!
Amazing food with a great wine selection. Courteous staff and a great location.
Great restuarant; delicious food and fantastic service. Had the king crab appetizer and lobster entrée. Both excellent.
Food, service and ambiance were great!! The Chilean Sea Bass was amazing and Caleb is a fantastic server.
This experience was wonderful. The staff was very accommodating to one of our diners who is blind, and added a note to our reservation to serve the food in a way that was easy for them to eat. I cannot day enough wonderful things about the restaurant and their team. They allowed a guest to eat with dignity and didn’t make him feel any different than other diners. Thank you!
My boyfriend and I love Cameron Mitchell restaurants and we have so much respect and admiration for Cameron Mitchell, but this was our least favorite CM restaurant. My boyfriend ordered fish after server said it was very popular and had been on the menu for years. We each had 1 bite. It was not good tasting at all and was "fishy" tasting. The fried shrimp appetizer was very good! My steak in a bowl was decent but doesn't touch Jeff Ruby's or J. Gilberts. We love Cameron's Bistro - the Walleye is AMAZING!! I like Cap City and we're trying his new restaurant Del Mar opening this week. M just didn't have that classy, upbeat with a flare we like! We thought the environment was "stale." Felt like we were in banquet hall of a hotel. Just wasn't our thing. And the menu wasn't appealing to us like other CM restaurants. Also tried Hudson 29 a couple weeks ago. Good food. Loved the atmosphere. Felt like we were sitting in a restaurant while on vacation!
Everything was outstanding!
Spent $500 for three people. Most expensive meal of my life. It was worth it, but it was not a good value.
Couple details for M I think we missed but didn’t damper the experience.
Valets should come to car with umbrellas Sat. Was a monsoon and I had to find my own umbrella and then deal with it inside the restaurant.
Occasion was bday in the open table reservation but not sure the server would have even known if we didn’t mention at the end.
Waters took forever....
The food was good. The service (hostess greeting was lack luster and cold and the waitress was pleasant but not exceptional). When I dine, I think of the 5 senses and this experience did not leave me feeling warm.
It had been several years since we have been to the M so decided to go back. This time things have really changed and not for the best. The drinks were not constant at all. My steak was under cooked as well as the guy at the table by us. I chose not to send it back as my wife would have been finished by the time it came back or her food would have been cold. At the end of dinner and after sitting we ended up having to go find someone for our check. Last time for us there I hope this is not a indication of the other Cameron Mitchell Restaurants.
Their overall service and the quality of the food and drinks are outstanding. Very nice ambiance and friendly and efficient staff. It would be nice if they introduced more vegetarian/vegan options, but we asked and they can accommodate requests. Perhaps they could include them in the menu in future, as the tortellini were delicious. Valet parking is available. We will definitely eat there regularly, as this is a perfect restaurant for fine dining, in a good location with a nice view and with great atmosphere.
The food and staff was great. The ambiance of the restaurant was beautiful
SUPERIOR FOOD & DINING SERVICE _ LIZZA WAS OUR SERVERS NAME
A TRUE DINING EXPERIENCE!
The Food and the service was outstanding! No complaints!
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.
Exceptional food and service
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.
Loved the food, the people, everything was great! Will be back for sure
Excellent place to dine! Great experience. Great food.
