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.

M is always amazing. You can’t find service like this anywhere else in Columbus and the food is great. I’ve never not liked anything I ordered. Great place to make memories and relax

This is a very nice restaurant with excellent food. I was surprised to be presented the wrong bottle of wine and have a server that couldn't open it. What was presented was $490 more than what was ordered.

Worth every dollar. If you love sushi, don’t hesitate ordering everything they make. Steak in a bowl is perfection.

Never disappointing!

We celebrated our son's 24th birthday. Both the server and the waitress were very attentive to him and brought his dessert with a candle. We had the sushi caterpillar as our appetizer. It was very good. Between us we ordered the ahi tuna, steak bowl, and hamburgers. All was delicious. What stood out the most were the cocktails. We had their whiskey with fresh peach purée and they were outstanding. M is always a special experience and our waitress was extremely attentive.

Great location along the river, beautiful interior. The food was very good. The black orchid cocktail was unsurpassed!!! What a gem! They freeze a flower in the solid ice cube sphere and the light floral drink was refreshing. But it was FREEZING in there. I had to wear my jacket the whole time and service was incredibly slow. We would have tried dessert but by the time our server came back we no longer wanted it. Frustrating by the end. Overall was good so maybe it was an off night, although the dining room wasn't that busy.

M never disappoints. My fiancé and I have been there many times but this occasion was for our anniversary. The Steak was perfect as well as the spicy Tuna and Dover Sole special my fiancé ate. She has allergies to Gluten, Dairy, and Soy and the kitchen always has no problem catering to our needs. Great dinner that I’d recommend to anyone!

Arrived early for our 40th anniversary dinner. The gentleman in charge assured us we would be seated early. At 15 minutes past our reservation my husband ask the gentleman when we would be seated. Several minutes later he took us to a table I specifically didn't request. I ask him for one of the tables I did request. His response was they can not always honor requests. So we waited some more, we are now 1 hour beyond the time of arrival. My husband started looking on the internet for another restaurant. He came up to us and started to talk to us about something but I interrupted him and said my husband was looking for another available restaurant. A few minutes later one of the tables I requested was available. We were never asked about our anniversary and never a small apology for the long wait. The service was excellent and the food was very good. Note: Don't make special requests, and don't bother telling them about special occasions. But the food is good.

It was a wonderful experience from beginning to end! Our waitress, Debbie was outstanding, the food was excellent. It was a wonderful way to celebrate a 3/4 century birthday!(and it came with a surprise dessert which was out of this world).

Food here used to be fantastic, but not any more. More of a production kitchen turning out mediocre dishes, sorry to say. Crafted cocktails at the bar are still nice—order off the menu, and the service is still great.

Took over 2.5 hours for dinner. Never an apology for service. Thankfully we were not in a hurry and enjoyed the company we were in. Food was very good. Only complaint was incredibly slow service and infrequent check in’s from our server.

I will recommend this restaurant only because of the food. The service was sub par. Took us ten minutes to even get waters when we sat down. Thank God I made a reservation because even with my reservation it took an hour and fifteen minutes to be sat (and never once did the manager come and apologize or give us a free app or cocktail!)

The table setting was ideal looking over the city, trees were in bloom; wait staff was excellent and the food and cocktails were exquisite, this was our first time at M and when we visit Columbus again we will be back!

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.
