The food was great, the hostesses were very sweet, the only part of the dinner we didn’t like was the waitress. She was rude to us right from the start and 1. Did not introduce herself, (i asked halfway through the evening and it’s Mary Beth) 2. When we tried to get her opinion on wines she was very condescending. She told my boyfriend “not to fill up on bread” which I believe was suppose to be a joke but actually just came across very passive aggressive. The resturaunt was also busy but she left us sitting at the table with our wine finished and waiting for her to take the check for 10 minutes. She basically just was pretty rude the entire time and almost ruined the night.

I love this restaurant specifically for its pan seared gnocchi and the lamb paparadelle. This is my favorite restaurant to take someone visiting from out of town.

Always enjoy dining at Martini. The grapefruit gimlet is the best cocktail I’ve had. Food is fantastic. Jack was a great server!! He’s very attentive to his tables without being over bearing. My best friend and I had a great time!

Always a favorite!! We haven't been in for awhile because we moved further from Columbus, but everything about Martini is still exceptional: food, drink, ambiance, bar staff, servers. Still, one of the best in town!!

Forgot how good Martinis is. We’ve been here over the 21years since it opened and it’s consistently delicious. They’ve changed their menu over the years but it’s still great. My daughter and I shared the scallops which were cooked perfectly and the butternut squash tortelloni which was amazing. The wine is a little overpriced but the cocktails were reasonable. Will definitely come back.

We always enjoy our visits to Martini, and Friday night was no exception! Because of the snow storm, it was much quieter than usual but we had a great time. The food was spectacular as usual (Chef Shawn sent out the Octopus appetizer with eggplant caponata- phenomenal!!) as were the drinks. Tequila is my liquor of choice, so special thanks to our server who recommended it and bartender who made it - the Blackberry Basil Smash was perfect. It always makes us feel extra special when something off-menu is created for us! Thank you again for a wonderful night out!

Thanks for making the evening special for my wife's birthday. The food was delicious and service was excellent. Seating in the elevated area was greatly appreciated and added to the ambiance. Looking forward to a future visit.
