It was much busier than last time and we had to ask after not getting sides that we knew came with the meal, but they were prompt and courteous about it.

The owner really made a difference on our visit. There was a dish that they were out of. Because if that a complimentary dish was brought out for all of us to share. It was amazing. The owner has a passion for what she is doing and it's great to experience that. Foods was great.

We had a reservation because of size of our group (6) and the fact that it was a home football game weekend and Parent's Weekend at USC too! And despite the very energetic and apologetic hostess who worked diligently to find us a table --- we waited 50 minutes after our booked reservation time to be seated! This, while numerous smaller groups that arrived later than us were seated almost immediately. All said, it was still worth the wait! Fantastic food, and top notch waiter --- We would go again........but with a smaller group ( 4 people or less)

The best sushi restaurant in town, with wonderful ambiance, good service, excellent food. In my opinion, the best of the M-restaurants here in Columbia, and we've been to them all. All are good, but this is the best!

Our guests ordered several types of sushi and the flavor/taste was "off'. It was over Labor Day weekend and the place was quiet. I will have to try M's again before I write it off as a place to enjoy Asia food.

One of the many branches of Miyo's, always an excellent choice for Asian food. M Grille is an attractive space with Miyo's great food.

M Grille served us a quite good brunch on Sunday, August 24. My roll was quite spicy, well formed and of perfect taste. My wife had the crab cakes which she found very good. The sushi here is wonderful and the Chinese presentation is well focused by Michelle Wang. It is a pleasure to eat there.

Everything about my dinner at M Grille was perfect. The food was delicious. The service was so unbelievable. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. Also, it was very quiet since we were one of the only tables there for dinner. I loved it!

I will give M Grill another chance. But this was our first visit and our experience was pretty bad. Don't bother making a reservation. It seems that they don't even check for them. Food arrived piecemeal. I shared mine with my friend because hers didn't arrive until we had to leave. Its no fun when one couple's food arrives and you have to sit snd wait for the other two meals. And wait. And wait. Server was great, but there seemed to be total chaos otherwise--and the restaurant was only half full! I hope this place does better another time. It's an attractive restaurant, and I want them to succeed. And they did give us an unexpected gift certificate to make up for the crummy service.

M Grille is usually closed on Sunday, but was open for a special Mother's Day brunch. The menu was traditional brunch fare -- Eggs Benedict, Shrimp and Grits, French Toast ... The food was very good, but very different from the usual M Grille food, which is Asian. The restaurant is very attractive; modern, light, and airy. We enjoyed our experience but have no way to rate the restaurant for a normal lunch or dinner.

Way out of character for Michelle's restaurants in Columbia. We are regulars at Miyo's in Harbison. The food and service there is always exceptional. Our waitress did not know specials, called my wife "babe" twice and "darlin" once. The food was mediocre to poor. Cold, poorly cooked and oily crab cakes appetizer. My scallops were bland without any sauces. My wife's lobster pizza was soggy. Really could not recommend to anyone.

The venue is great but the food was disappointing. The ribeye was tough and tasteless and the crispy flounder was anything but crispy. M restaurants are usually great but M Grille needs to improve their game.

This was a wonderful first-time experience. We went on a Tuesday evening for "date night". It was busy, but not crowded. The seating was a little different than I was used to. Not very romantic at first, but the server allowed us to adjust the table so we could sit next to each other instead of across from each other. I loved the food, the service, the atmosphere. It was just lovely. We had reservations, arrived a little early and were seated promptly. I wouldn't bring children to M Grille. This was an adult atmosphere with an adult menu. We will definitely be back.
