Motor Supply Company Bistro
Great food and an excellent atmosphere.
The holiday cocktail. The hibiscus mule was amazing!
Had the fish it was tasteless both of my friends I was with said the same thing. They offered me something else so I had the steak and asked for medium it tasted rare. Was not impressed, won’t be back.
Best spot in Columbia. Unique cocktails and perfectly cooked steak.
This was a return visit for us to Motor Supply..we travel thru Columbia periodically. The food was as tasty and interesting as always. Standouts were the salads, two different steak dishes and grouper. The wine and spirits are interesting and fairly priced. Motor Supply remains a favorite for creative Southern cooking.
Amazing dinner and Cullen was a great server!!
Awesome as always
We expected it to be crowded but we managed to beat the football fans and enjoyed delicious food in a quiet atmosphere. We were warmly welcomed and served quickly. I had a traditional southern dish - fried chicken thighs - that was moist and flavorful. My dining partner had an equally appealing pork dish. I would definitely return.
One of our favorite restaurants in Columbia. Annual tradition Thanksgiving weekend.
Delicious, unique and affordable menu. Excellent service. Back brick patio was perfect.
Motor Supply never disappoints. The food is wonderful, the service is friendly and attentive with no hovering. We love the ambiance--the art, the sense of calm and style that's perfect for a casual lunch, a nice dinner or anything in between.
Good wine list, reasonably priced I had Caymus at 110 I think. Sea Bass very good, we had same dish...the sizes were off though my dates was literally twice the size of mine which was about 4 or 5 bites. Liked the porch area...a little music piped in would add to ambiance but hey that's just me. The one thing we didnt like was Valet. Could have parked in space in front but was told had to use free valet...they didnt tell us he was leaving early, we couldn't find him after 10 minutes was told he was gone and car was at Hilton .had to walk over on a rainy cold night about 3 blocks to find their valet to finally get car..literally put damper on otherwise good night
Mike is such a great waiter and made us feel special, as always.
Service was very attentive and friendly. Food was good but not excellent like it has been
Excellent meal! Very responsive staff and excellent service.
I found Motor Supply Co on OpenTable and from the menu and customer reviews it certainly seemed like a cute little bistro within walking distance of my hotel worth trying. However, from the time that I walked in the door I was was incredibly surprised by the lack of hospitality. When I arrived a young lady at the front looked at me as if I was lost and asked “Can I help you?”. I told her that I had made a reservation for 8:00pm, and she looked it up and told me it would be a little while before I would be able to be seated. I told her ok, and immediately looked to book a table at another restaurant. However, a few mins later she returned and did somehow find a table even though nobody had left.
I was sat in the porch area near one of the garage doors. It was pretty cold, and I understand it can be difficult to insulate the garage doors, but needless to say, it was pretty miserable sitting next to them. My waitress eventually made her way to my table took my order. About another 15 mins passed and my first course arrived. Problem was the drink I ordered was nowhere to be found. I asked the gentleman that delivered my first course to check, and I watched as he went to the bar and then to my waitress. He then came back and told me that the bar was “still working on my drink” when clearly it had never even been put in. By the time it came out my first course was cold and lost most of it’s splendor, although it was still an admirable dish. When my entree came out without a knife to cut it with and remained absent for a good portion of the meal until it was finally brought out. On that visit the waitress impressed me by deciding to try to refill my water by reaching over my plate as I was trying to take a bite. When I was done I had to wait at least 5 mins for her to bring the check by and she only did so because I was watching her wander around the dining room until she made eye contact and then remembered I was waiting to leave.
Food was wonderful as it always is. Table was near the bar and the overflow people standing around were basically at our table. Otherwise, we love Motor Supply.
Ladies night out before the theater. Mike was a great server. Loved the food.
Good food. Server was helpful and made good menu suggestions.
Everything was superb!
Delicious food. The eggplant was a good vegetarian option! Peanut butter pie was recommended & didn’t disappoint.
Very good service and amazing food. From artisanal cheese board to the duck, the steak, the pork chops. And OMG the Panna cotta, ans the chocolate bar.
Please give it a try, I don't you'll be disappointed
The atmosphere, food, and service were wonderful, as usual!
Very nice setting, alittle difficult to find but was well worth the trip. Food was fantastic and staff was very helpful and personal. Would recommend and we will be back!!
Have had good meals here before but pretty underwhelming on our last visit. Had out of town visitors and was almost embarrassed on the level of service and food quality. Only 2 of us had salads and those arrived before our drink orders. Pretty wilted from sitting under a heat lamp. Many of party had the steaks and one a little too rare. That happens and it was taken back but after 10 minutes I had to look for our waitress to check on the progress. Service was pretty poor for a bill over 450 dollars. Automatic gratuity was applied but not definitely worth it
One of my favorites places to visit when I’m in Columbia. The fall menu is interesting and inviting but my entree fell a little short. I had the bone in pork chop but felt it was a small portion and a bit over cooked. Pretty average. Service was great as usual. Will give them another chance soon.
Food, service & drinks were outstanding. Not gonna lie, it's pretty pricey, but it's delicious!
College son and roommate Parents dinner
First off - love the lighting in this place. It’s just right! The butternut squash soup was the best version I’ve ever had. We were super impressed!!
Best restaurant in South Carolina hands down.
Josh at the bar is the best in town, hands down. Great service and food as always. My go to in Columbia for sure.
Good but must have been a change in mgmt or chef recently. No longer offering their delicious pesto and bread, also some of the side dishes and desserts weren’t as good as in the past
Another wonderful meal at Motor Suppply! The service was great and the food was delicious.
The food was great, I had steak , mashed potatoes and broccoli all delicious . Service was quick and friendly . We will return
Our party had a wonderful on the patio! Great service too
Very good food as always
It was a blind date. The food was great as was the ambiance. At times it was a little loud but we could understand each other. The grouper, cauliflower steak, artisan cheese board, Moscow mule, lemon basil cheesecake was all exceptional. It won’t be a night I’ll soon forget
Excellent food and service. Atmosphere was great!
Excellent service and excellent food. Always great.
