We went to dinner with 2 small children. Our waitress gave us great recommendations and the food was amazing. Overall, one of the best restaurants we’ve been to and we’ve been to many. Next time we’ll be in Columbus we’ll be back!

Arrived Sunday 15 mins before reveservation and no valet, took 15 min to find a place to park. Food not on par with typical Cameron Mitchell. Too expensive 75/person

Overall it was a fantastic place for our Valentine’s Day diner. Service was great, the food didn’t take long and it tasted great. With that being said, there were just too minor complaints I had. The first was that halfway through our date, the music got too loud to hear one another but that was turned down relatively quick. It was still pretty loud but that’s almost to be expected at a busy upscale restaurant with a full bar. The second complaint is that they slightly over cooked my steak. I requested it rare and it came out medium rare. Other than that, it was a fantastic diner and great place for a special date.

Always a great experience at Martini Modern Italian. Excellent service, food, and atmosphere. Some suggestions that I would recommend are a dirty Tito's Martini with Blue Cheese Olives, Mozzarella Cheese as an app, and the Short Rib for a main entree.

We arrived and were seated very quickly per our reservation. The staff was super friendly and helpful with the specials going on. We were served quickly but given plenty of time between courses. The food itself was fantastic and cooked perfectly. The overall vibe of the place was a very relaxed and comfortable. I would definitely recommend and will definitely be coming back.

Our server wasn’t great. Not bad service, she was just odd or awkward. Took away from the dining experience. Food is over priced for the quality. I expected a lot more from a Cameron Mitchell restaurant.

Great food and service here. I went recently for the first time on a Sunday evening and was worried going into it that it would be too loud for a date after reading several reviews that said it was loud. But that was not the case at all as the volume was normal and definitely quiet enough to hold conversations with my date. Very neat interior design as well it was a great time dining here.

We arrived into Columbus on a Saturday night from out of town. Looked up dining options which would cater to my gluten free needs. Our waiter was completely helpful in guiding me; he asked the chefs certain questions about preparing my meal. And, after placing an appetizer order which was breaded, for my husband; he graciously brought me several slices of very good gluten free bread along with 2 sauces for dipping. I haven’t ever had any place bend over backwards to please my needs like Martini did! Thank you so much and we will be back next year!!!💘💗💓💕💞

Drinks: AMAZING. Top of the list was the Dark Cherry Manhattan! Testarossa was amazing as well.
Food: Very delicious. Worth the money.
Atmosphere: Elegant and relaxing. We were seated in the back of the restaurant which was quiet and great for a date. However, the front of the restaurant, near the bar, was full of loud conversation which kept the place feeling lively!
Price: Woah. Not for the broke college kid. Make sure to bring your checkbook. Great way to impress a date though.

We visited Saturday, February 10, 2018. The service was beyond terrible. The waiter (unfortunately, we can't remember his name) never once checked on us after our food was delivered. I got the 2 lobster tails that was the evening special. They were cold and the rest of the meal was over cooked. My husband got the fettuccine and clams and it was excellent. I had to go to the bar myself to get drink refills. By the way the bartender acted this seems to be a regular occurrence with this particular waiter and our 2nd drinks were on the house. He finally surfaced to bring us our bill and offer us dessert. Not sure if we will be back, but if we do, we will definitely request not to have the same waiter.

Wonderful service, hand-crafted cocktails, and delicious food at a reasonable price - all this and more right across the street from the Columbus Convention Center! The service was attentive, and we were seated immediately at our reservation time. The menu had a nice variety of dishes...I had a pear/cheese salad and a meat pasta that was out of this world! Had enough to take home and have lunch the next day! Highly recommend Martini's if you are out for pleasure or business!

Pretty sure our waiter was VERY high. He was nice, but we had some communication issues. Food was outstanding! We had the best table in the house - upstairs, tucked in the corner. Cozy, quiet, delicious.

The food was excellent. The lamb was very tender and the chicken was amazing. The drinks were good too. Our server was not great however. She never smiled, not once, and it almost seemed we were imposing on her by being there. We have chalked it up to her being off her game that night and will return to dine in the future.

Glad I returned! First time I visited was near the restaurant opening years ago. Was unimpressed with the food and service at the time. Just went back as I was in town for business and had a great meal with a wonderful server. I will return next time I'm in town.

We came here because we could not get into Marcella's, which we love. Martini Modern did not disappoint. Perfect complement to Marcella's...just a bit more upscale but not pretentious. The food, service and ambiance was great. John, our waiter, was the best...friendly, helpful and fun!
