The star rating hits it in the head. I’m guessing being removed from these outings has curtailed due to...you know...may have added a multiplier to my experience.
The dinner amazing, the lobster risotto was amazing, and clearly my favorite.

This was our first time dining in Downtown Columbus since the pandemic. We decided to come out for restaurant week with our friend Drew who had never dined there before. John was our server and he was amazing as always!!! (We had him for Valentine’s Day too!) Everything was delicious and we were very pleased ! The lobster risotto appetizer was our favorite! Thank you Martini for always doing such a great job! -Mara, Ryan, and Drew

We had a nice experience and it was good to try something new but not our favorite Cameron Mitchell's. I think we set the expectation bar too high. We don't regret going but probably won't go back.

Dining at Martini Modern is a must when visiting our Ohio State Buckeye. The service is impeccable- thank you, Katie! And their filet mignon was prepared better than any steak house! Also love the ambiance. This place is truly a favorite.

We love Martini and go there all the time, but this experience was pretty bad. Server ignored us most of the night. Drinks took 20+ minutes, but she rarely stopped by our table to check on us anyways. The manager tried to make it right by comping a round of drinks and sending us free dessert to go.... we cashed out and after 20 more minutes she never brought the desserts so we left without them. I thought with COVID and limited occupancy Martini would be amazing, because it is usually a very loud and crowded restaurant. Every with limited tables our service was awful. Hoping it was a one time issue!

My husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary at Martini. We've been guests several times before for other special occasions. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our evening. The tuna tartare was delicious to start, I had chicken carbonara which was creamy and flavorful. My husband had chicken marsala which he loved. Bread was fresh and delicious. We finished with chocolate bread pudding for dessert. Highly recommend the Mendoza malbec if you like semi dry red wine. Our waiter was superb, sorry I don't recall his name! My only minor quibble would be the noise level but it really didn't diminish our night at all.
