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.

My friends and I ate at Martini before heading to the theater. We came early to have plenty of time to enjoy our meal before the show.
Our server was excellent and the food was timed well. She also just came occasionally to ask how we were doing but didn't hound us.
The food was excellent and comforting as the weather was chilly.
I have been here numerous times and always enjoy the ambience.

Martini's is our favorite spot. We have always had excellent service and cannot say enough about the food. We have visited all areas of the menu and have been very pleased. My favorite has been the filet which I think is the best in the city. A recent special was a sliced filet with balsamic reduction and mushrooms. I added a couple of seared scallops and a superb surf and turf was there for a birthday. They are always willing to customize dishes and the wine selection is top notch.I can't say enough about the hostesses who are always warm and friendly and seem to recognize and remember many of the clientele.(Mimi unfortunately is the only name I know).
