Contemporary American | Columbus, Columbus

Went for my wife's birthday. We like M for special occasions as the food is very good and we have had excellent service with Deb as our server. We have gone to M over the past 7 years and the menu has stayed very much the same. The evening specials are very good and worth one's consideration. However, the menu needs to rotate a bit more, say quarterly to showcase the talents of the chef and to keep the dining experience fresh. It's an expensive place and to have a menu that is static is not encouraging. The corporate office (this is a Camron Mitchell Restaurant) needs to give the chef more latitude to explore and create. I appreciate consistent quality, but I also expect a menu that features fresh ingredients depending on the time of year. Camron Mitchell Corp. has been featured at the James Beard House (which we have attended over the years) so the expectation for variety and a dynamic dining experience should be within the capability of the kitchen at M. I will return but I hope that I will also be greeted with some new creations on the menu to entice me to return more often. More

The restaurant and staff were awesome! Open Table reservation system sucks!!!!!! Made reservation, got confirmation email, but upon arrival the restaurant there was no reservation on file. Restaurant staff explained that Open Table reservations were cut off 3 days earlier. However since we had a confirmation number the restaurant seated us. Kudos again to Gordon Biersch for their high level of customer service. They were slammed that night but took care of us as if we were their only customers. More

We finally made it to Notes to catch a Bobby Floyd Showcase. We met friends there who were returning guests. The atmosphere is great, the food and drinks good. The jazz was fantastic. We will be returning soon. Our only complaint was the drinks were very slow in coming. It appeared they were understaffed for the session, our server was overwhelmed. She apologized for the slow service and was very nice and efficient otherwise. More

If I were traveling and stayed at this hotel, using the dining room Latitude 41 I would be happy with it. But as a date night, I didn't do enough research - too open, too industrial (although pleasant) not a lot of choices on the menu (although, again - enough) and the wine by the glass choices were limited for my taste. I will admit I am a big foodie and wine snob, so kind of hard to please when I am dating. As a business traveler, it would have been fine. Great wait staff. More

Everything was great! The only suggestion is when my husband went to order and asked for ribs he was told they were out. This should have been something the hostess or server should have said upfront because we sat awhile to make our selection and then he was told. Otherwise, table was ready, great food and great service! More
