Martini Modern Italian
Wife and I went here for our anniversary. We had a great night. Butternut squash tortellini was fantastic. All of the desserts were great. Service was good. It was a bit on the louder side but not off-putting. We loved it and will definitely be going back.
Exceptional food and wine list!
We had the option of the bar, which was very fun and energetic, or the adjacent dining room. We opted for the dining room for more privacy and quiet talk. Our server was wonderful and the food amazing. They also have a nice wine list. We will definitely be back when we are back in Columbus. Great find.
Reservation for 7:00 and not seated until 7:25 - there we some open tables. Never came to update us, we had to initiate communication. Sorry is about all we heard as we were seated. Expected the manager to swing by to acknowledge the delay - no one showed.
We had a wonderful time celebrating Mothers' Day. The only detraction was the noise from other celebrants. If you bring children to such a nice restaurant, please do not let them climb and run around without their shoes. Take them to Denny's.
Our Mother’s Day dinner experience was one of those “special times that just really click!” Every aspect of our time went perfectly - our server, the food, the entire restaurant, and the parking - all made for a tremendous time together. We can’t wait to go back - it was so good !!!
We ate here for Mother's Day but had been before. The service was attentive. The cocktails were perfect. Three of us were dining gluten free friendly and also had someone with a food allergy in our party. The server and kitchen staff were attentive to the dietary needs and the food was amazing. I'd highly recommend the antipasto and the scallops.
I have been to most of the Cameron Mitchel Restaurants in the Greater Columbus area and have never been disappointed. Top notch EVERYTHING! The Mitchel Restaurants have the restaurant experience honed to perfection!!! From the moment you walk in....perfect greetings, perfect, wait staff, perfect libations, perfect high quality food. As always, hats off to Martini Modern Italian. We will be back!
Great meal for Mothers' Day Brunch. Food was great and so was service. My only complaint is that one of us asked for a side order of a bagel; we were then charged $6.00 for one dry bagel. The meal actually came with toast (that was not on the menu), would have been nice for the server to have told us it comes with toast, and/or to let us know that a bagel costs $6.00! but other than that it was great.
The food was outstanding and the service was just the right amount of attention. Be prepared to pay $$$.
Our server John was amazing and the food was impeccable!
Incredible service, spectacular food, great drinks, and personalized attention to detail. This is a must visit when in Columbus. John, our server, understands the perfect balance between ensuring the customer's needs are fully met, and being overwhelming. He nailed it. All of the drinks and dishes we tried were amongst the best we have had and if all that weren't enough, the GM, Teresa, even dropped by our table to make certain everything was perfect. It was - we will definitely be back and will make a trip to Columbus just to do so.
Took our Leadership Team to Martini this week. Wonderful experience for out of town associates, and the in-town ones as well!
The food was just fabulous at Martini’s. We especially enjoyed the beet salad, veal piccata and the scallops. Our server, Gary, was very attentive and took care of every detail. Awesome meal and evening! Kudos to the chef as well!
Get the Mozzarella Appetizer. So fresh and delicious. Served with fresh pesto that I could eat with a spoon!
Our meal was delicious and our server was extremely attentive and accommodating to our requests to modify/split food. I've been here a few times before and it's a wonderful experience every time.
Martini appears to be back in its stride. Over the last year we’ve seen some poor servers coupled to inconsistent food preparation. But this last weekend rocked with perfectly timed and prepared food, gorgeously presented and solidly flavored. Our server was out of this world too, offering the highest level of professional care that we have experienced at any restaurant in Columbus. He even offered to reglaze my son’s dessert for his take away box. That was a restaurant first. Bravo Martini! And bravo to CM for restoring the high standards that made his flagship restaurants excellent.
Fabulous restaurant with delicious food! Loved the decor and we had a great server Cody!
Martini never disappoints.
High expectations, great start, not so great a finish. The "start" was a fabulous cocktail, a "Barrel Aged Negroni", straight up, perhaps one of the finest drinks I've ever had: dark and smoky despite being gin-based. Just wonderful. But then the food "fell on its face" and disappointed. My octopus should have been labeled "octopus carpaccio" due to its thinness. Most places serve octopus grilled and it is great that way. Chilled and sliced paper thin it is bland and not interesting. My entree was "fettuccine and clams" - a basic, rustic dish that is hard to mess up and which I really anticipated. It was bland - and CHEAP. There were exactly EIGHT tiny clams in a big bowl of a thick ribbon pasta. No chopped clams, no clam broth that I could taste, just a mild slightly buttery thin sauce. And the eight clams were almost an insult.
My wife had the "Veal Martini" - looked nice and crispy and brown - but buried in spinach which made the whole plate watery. Then the second CHEAP stunt. In taking the order our server (who was competent) suggested that a bit of pasta be put under the meat. We were not told that there was an upcharge for that - SIX BUCKS for literally about one ounce of the same bland pasta that was in the clams.
The atmosphere is kind of "hip" and its location literally next door to the Hilton and across from the Convention Center make it a great location. The place is very noisy - lots of tables packed close together - so it gets LOUD = and the place wasn't full the night we were there.
I might try it a second time if I lived in Columbus but I'd be a lot more inclined to send stuff back if it didn't measure up again. But I'd surely try the "Barrel Aged Negroni".
High prices with small portions (albeit good food) in a very noisy environment lead to mixed feelings about coming back in the future.
Wonderful service and a great client dinner. Thank you.
I decided to try Martini one night while I was in town by myself and it was wonderful! Staff was so friendly, food was delicious. I have Celiac Disease and they offer so many Gluten Free options along with the most delicious GF foccacia bread that was served warm. I will definitely return!!
Great food and our Server was excellent! She gave great recommendations and helped us select a bottle of wine as well.
Food was amazing, service was terrible
Martini is our favorite for our anniversary. It’s beautiful, has a exquisite menu and staff.
This was a birthday dinner for my fiancée. This was just perfect. The food, the drinks, the service, everything ! Would recommand it to anyone.
This was our second visit to Martini Modern. Exceptional food, ambience and service will keep us coming back. Our server, Joe, was knowledgeable about every menu item. We in turn, made fantastic selections!
The staff was very nice and accommodating. The food was amazing and had an amazing experience overall.
The food was great and the service was even better. I always love going here, except for the insanely slippery floor (been like that for years and it's honestly rough if you're wearing heels).
We always have at least one meal at Martini
Modern Italian when we stay in Columbus.
They were so kind to me on my 21st birthday:), and even brought over a special desert. Couldn’t have asked for a better meal
The food was excellent. We had a fine server, Amy, who was helpful beyond expectations. The most difficult part of the experience was the noise level. We wanted to engage in conversation, which we did, but it was difficult to hear above the din of the room.
We had a fun evening with great food and great service.
Another excellent meal with excellent service. This restaurant is perfect for so many different occasions.
Overall a great evening! The food is fantastic the service was excellent and the Birthday dessert was the icing on the cake!!!
We had a very disappointing experience at Martini's. We were in town for the weekend and were looking forward to a nice evening. We had been several times in the past when our son attended OSU. This time, the restaurant was a complete disappointment from start to finish. The hostess was less than welcoming, our waitress inattentive, and the food subpar. I ordered shrimp marinara, which had a few TINY shrimp in a bowl full of pasta with too much sauce. My son's salmon was overcooked and daughter's pasta soaked in cream sauce. The bar area was almost empty by 8 p.m. on a Friday night.
We chose Martini's because of the great food and lively atmosphere we enjoyed in years past. With all the other wonderful dining options in Columbus, I'm not sure this one will survive. We will not be back.
Waiter (Gary) was very attentive and paid special attention to my onion allergy.
The food was served timely. It was very relaxing and enjoyable.
