Visited for Mother’s Day-didn’t realize that a special, limited menu was only being served. Very disappointed. We waited for over 10 minutes until the server arrived at our table. She wasn’t very friendly. Another server brought food to our table & sat in down in front of me but then realized it belonged to the table beside ours. She picked it up & immediately gave it to them. Doesn’t that violate health protocol? No apology. Even with the limited menu the service was very slow.

Outstanding beef tenderloin!! One of the best in the Columbus area! Server was wonderful. Staff was very friendly. Eggs Benedict w/ crab was not good, but the rest of the meal was excellent. We'll make the trek back to Newark for another meal.

Server was fantastic. Food and cocktails tasted delicious but it was very slow. 2.5 hours there. Bread was a good concept but seemed like should’ve been cooked. Pretty noisy but cool decor

Food is excellent, service is efficient. Had reservation at 5:45, but didn't get seated until 6:20 at a table in the middle of the room, although we requested a table to the side. Room was very noisy. We are very sorry that the booths were removed. The ambience is similar to a cafeteria, and not at all relaxing.

We had never been to 1922 and from the moment we walked in, we loved the place. We sat at the bar and had a couple of drinks before going to our table. The bartenders were just so friendly and kind, the patrons at the bar were having fun and most were regulars, and the bar is beautiful. After being seated, our waitress was so kind and friendly and the place began to fill up with families, couples, etc. so it was very energetic. The food was fabulous along with the service. We will definitely go back as it was one of the best dining experiences we've had in a long time. Thank you very much!

It was prom night for 2 area high-schools so noise level when we arrived was a bit loud. As the kids left so did a lot of the noise. Our server was excellent and so was the food.

One of the best places in Central Ohio. Service is the best anywhere and food is very, very good. What a gem for Newark but for the greater Columbus area.

Scallops, salmon, burger, and steak - all four of us enjoyed our meals. The side serving of mushrooms was huge and definitely shareable. The asparagus is not shareable - 5 spears.

Newark really needed a good place to eat like 1922!!! SO glad to see the old Natoma revised and back better than ever. We ate outside on a gorgeous day but very early spring - still March - so that was my only reason for a lower score on ambiance. It was very early in the season so the outdoor decor was sparse - completely understandable! I'd like to see the blocks a little lower so the view wasn't blocked so much but that's a tiny thing. We didn't go inside because of COVID. But the food was excellent and I can't wait to go back!

We were disappointed- noise level was distracting and we could not hear or understand table mates or our server. Other diners yelling to their table mates combined with the loud music-it was awful! Tuna tartare was tasteless, Caesar salads limp and vinegary. NY steaks over salted and a baked potato large enough for a family of 4. After eating no more than a quarter of our steaks, we had them boxed and we left. The noise was just too much!

Everything was excellent. However the noise was very irritating. I realize we sat in the bar area but the level of noise I’m sure was heard throughout Both sides of the restaurant. Our waitress was extremely friendly funny and accommodating. Our meals were very good as well.
