Specifically requested a table not out in the center of the room. Restaurant fairly empty and was seated right out in the center and less than 1 foot from other diners! With tons of open tables to space people how stupid and beyond that a terrible table. Celebrating a birthday which was not acknowledged by server. You are lucky your food is good! Most disappointing visit to your restaurant

Overall, the experience was positive. My only knock was with the chicken carbonara dish. I was unsure if/where the chicken was in the dish. Could not tell if there was actually chicken in it.

It was very nice. The restaurant was clean. Our waiter was great. Good was delicious. The only negative thing was that the tables are almost on top of each other. It is a tight space.

Our waitress, Alexis, was incredible. She suggested menu items, let us take our time, and overall made our experience one to remember! The food was incredible with options that we had difficulty deciding between because they all seemed so delicious. We will be back!

I dont know why, but everytime I go, the table is never ready on time. Always wait at least 10 minutes. I specifically asked for a table for this reservation but got sat at a high-top.

Overall, for a Cameron Mitchell restaurant, I was expecting a lot better food. The bread was just white bread with Olive oil sprinkled on it. For an Italian place, I was expecting a little better bread. The salad was OK the lobster risotto was very oily. The lasagna was very good, but had to ask for more marinara as a little dry. The brick chicken was OK but nothing to write home about. The service was fine and the waiter did an excellent job but was not over zealous. OK place to try once, but will probably never go back.

First time dining at the restaurant with my girlfriend and it made quite an impression upon both of us. For starters our server was very polite,informative and catering to us. Each course we ordered was to die for,from our appetizer to our dessert. Thank you for making our dining experience one of a kind and memorable.

I ate here while on a work trip with some colleagues. The service was fantastic. The waitress was able to help us narrow down a bottle of wine based on preferences that we ended up loving! She was also very accommodating to some dietary issues that I have. The housemade gluten free bread was out of this world and the gluten free pasta was just as good!

Under staffed. Waiting 40 mins before anyone came to take order. The waiter was very polite and tried to make up for the staffing issue. Wine pairings came out after we ate the course it was paired with. Got a free appetizer and dessert.

It was nice too see a restaurant so busy, but….they had us absolutely crammed into our table with other tables literally at our shoulders all around. Like can’t move close. The food was good but portion sizes were very small and we don’t have big appetites. Seemed like they were trying to accommodate way too many people at one time, acknowledging that we were there during dinner rush. Would hope it would be a different experience on an evening that was so busy.

We had a great dinner or server. Linda was amazing. Recommended doing Northern Italian family style with some appetizers, couple different pasta plates and a couple different entree plates and desserts and everything was amazing. We loved it very much and hopefully we will be back soon as possible

Celebrating our oldest daughter’s birthday at Martini, our youngest daughter’s favorite, may turn into an annual thing.

You know the phrase “Look what you all had!” And I think,” Look what we didn’t!” After sharing a variety of cocktails, appetizers, salads, pastas and desserts, we barely put a dent in their menu choices.

I was concerned coming on a Saturday afternoon with the OSU game and the Blue Jacket’s crowds, we might have issues. But I shouldn’t have worried. It was a little noisy but did not affect conversation.

Marco, our waiter, took excellent care of us. He was happy to answer our questions and give suggestions. We never felt rushed. Food was outstanding and our water glasses full!

Ate here with my wife before the CBJ game on a Saturday evening. Great food, great atmosphere, great staff. Seems like they try to turn tables over pretty quickly (like every other Cam Mitchell restaurant we've been to) but as long as you keep ordering drinks they won't rush you out the door!

Restaurant was jammed and very lively. Our server, Andrew, was superb and very engaging. When our wine selection was not available, he collaborated with the manager, Eamon (sp?), and he provided an excellent substitute and he engaged us in a conversation. Our overall experience was delightful. Will definitely go back next time we’re in town.
