A little on the pricey side for a grad student at around $125 for our food plus a drink each but we both felt it was worth it for the special occasion. Located underground with dim, romantic lighting, I had been wanting to bring my fiance out for a date here for quite a while. More

A really great surprise. Last minute pick based on reviews. Outstanding food, service and value. The entire short north is very eclectic and this place is top of the list, but if you're open minded, this is a great find. I wouldn't say it's designed to be a family joint but fits every other mindset. More

Seafood | Columbus, Columbus

The food was good but not great. Our serve was very sweet and attentive but almost too much. She checked on us about every 5 minutes and we lost count how many times after 10 but laughed it off. We were there for a rainy Sunday evening so we were one of 2 tables and then only 1. Loved the fireplaces and you can't beat the view. I think with some revamping this place could be number 1 in the city. I would like to return to try other foods on the menu. I thought pricing was reasonable compared to other restaurants. More
