The *only* hiccups throughout the entire evening were super minor. First, our server forgot about us after we sat down for about ten minutes. Second, they were out of our original wine bottle choice so we just picked another. However, everything else was flawless! The food was incredible. Our server was really sweet and genuinely nice. The music they played was fantastic.

Went for restaurant week and our server was great! Food on the other hand was underwhelming. Luckily we got a great price for the meal $35 for three courses otherwise would have been much more disappointed. The complimentary bread and butter though was fantastic!

The welcoming atmosphere from beginning to end was fantastic! John, our server, was knowledgeable about the menu, anticipated our needs (such as waters refilled), and promptly delivered everything we asked for. We tried the calamari, which was phenomenal, the stuffed salmon with mashed potatoes and green beans, and the peanut butter pie for dessert. Everything except the green beans, which were barely cooked and flavorless, was great! We both discussed wanting to come back soon to try something different on the menu!

Benjamin was our waiter last night and he’s so kind and genuine. He gave us his favorite recommendations. We were there for restaurant week and had salmon cakes for an appetizer, and I had the blackened chicken linguine as my main. Everything was delicious! I’ve never tried this restaurant before and because I had such a great experience with restaurant week, I will absolutely be back! The drinks were great too! Thank you Benjamin for your great service and thank you to the bar and chef for excellent taste!!

OMG. Should have looked at the reviews - The fish was dry and not tasty. The salmon tasted fishy (old) Would never recommend.
The one star was because the Server was first class.

Service was great... Paige did an amazing job. Filet came out overcooked the first time and undercooked the second time. But the rest of the meal was good. Not sure what we were expecting, but loud music was definitely something we did not expect. If your looking for a place where you can have a quiet relaxing conversation, this is not it.

We had been to other locations in CO & WA so we were familiar with their quality. My review will be good and slightly critical. We found this in the Columbus "restaurant week" for the limited menu. For appetizers we had the greens salad and fried scallops.
My wife had the Mahi and I had the stuffed salmon. Both were amazing!
For desert we had creme brulee' and cheesecake. My wife chose a glass of riesling. The food was very good!
Now a slightly critical observation...
The booth we were in had a piece of artwork that was pretty dusty and there were napkins between the booth and wall. Overall experience was great!!
Our server was very attentive

We had a reservation scheduled at 7:15 this evening for 4 guests & a toddler. We weren’t seated until almost 25 minutes after our scheduled reservation. On top of that, the food & courses took an unacceptable amount of time to be brought out. We were literally in the restaurant for over 3 hours. For four people. Absolutely insane & unacceptable. We used to frequent this restaurant often but we will not be back. At least our waitress was great.

We were seated at arrival. We continued to sit for over 20 minutes without being acknowledged and without a waiter. Finally, a waiter comes to the table and explains that “he didn’t know he had our table and they were trying to figure out who would help us”. We had to ask for water, did not receive bread like the tables around us. We were given the check and had to again ask if we could order dessert. There was very little interaction and a lack of professionalism. As a doctor, I take customer service very seriously. I will not return to this establishment in the future.

Service was nice but not over the top. Certainly not at a restaurant price lever. The food was mediocre to poor. I had a strip steak that was more gristle than meat. The sea bass was over cooked. M & S has always been a top tier restaurant pretty-pandemic. But not so post-pandemic.

Stopped by for dinner while in town. Restaurant was mostly empty which was a little surprising for Saturday night. Service was quick. Food came out quickly. Draft beer options were a bit limited but the Columbus IPA was good. Calamari app was good but a little oily. Salmon and clam chowder were very good. Little pricey for some of the entrees but overall fine dinnner.

Not up to their usual standards. Maybe it was just an “off” night, but our experience was not as good as we have come to expect at other outlets of this chain. Food wasn’t great, service was routine.

M&S is always a class-act restaurant with great service and food. The menu has been condensed, which I am assuming this is due to covid. My party of 4 all do prefer the old menu with a much more extensive dinner menu.

My wife and I really enjoyed the food. Our server, Paige, was very attentive to making sure that we had enough drinks and she checked back occasionally which we truly appreciated.

I would consider this to be more of an upscale restaurant. So, the bill when it came was not unexpected. This is not McDonald’s for sure.
