We brought a party of nine foodies to Oscar's, and were delighted with the way they accommodated us from start to finish. The food and service were excellent, and we could hear each other, which was important to us. Will definitely go there again!

One of our favorite restaurants in Columbus. After taking our order, the manager or owner came over to tell us they were sold out of their special -halibut so my wife ordered the Walleye which she loved. I ordered the spareribs which are wonderful and enough for at least two meals. Because they had sold out after taking our order, they paid for a carryout dessert. I chose the Banana Creme Pie which is a homemade tort with a graham cracker crust and praline topping. Probably the best dessert I have ever eaten. It was somewhat noisy in the large room where we ate, but nonetheless it was a wonderful dinner.

Pretty average meal. Got the shrimp gnocchi. Not a ton of flavor. I’m a tall guy but it was not a big enough portion. One of the women in our group also had the meal and agreed. Server was fine. It not very engaging.

Perfect place for a large group. We met in the bar, and there was plenty of space to socialize before we were seated. We had a few more join us at the last minute and Oscars was able to accommodate our additions. We asked to do separate checks by family units, and the waiter handled the request seamlessly. Everyone agreed that the food was outstanding. It was a lovely evening.

Waited 15 minutes after being seated. Staff walked by several times but never stopped even after making direct eye contact. Did not even receive water. No one acknowledged us until we stood up and started walking out. Was not even completely full. Maybe just a bad night but will not be back. Only second time we have ever walked out of an establishment due to lack of service. Not that hard to please. Just expect to be greeted within reasonable time period after seating in a nice establishment

The basic food ordered we ordered was inexcusably poor quality. The wedge salad should not have left the kitchen. Limp, cold, old, undercooked fatty bacon bits. Old chopped tomatoes. Watery blue cheese dressing. Brown -edged lettuce. Robotic service. Overall not good quality.

One of my favorite Dublin restaurants. The variety from the oyster tostadas to the spicy tilapia makes this a must. Food is consistent, creative and delicious.

This is our neighborhood restaurant. The menu does not vary much but what is in there is nicely done. The services is very good. The wine list is quite good and you can find good value. My wife loves their walleye. I like their slow cooked ribeye. Their tuna sashimi tacos are excellent, if they are on the menu.

I like Oscars as a go-to for family night. But you could also go to Oscars for a special occasion like a birthday or date night. Their staff is educated and the service is great. The tables are close together so the noise level is high. There's great ambiance and that offsets the noise.

St Patty's weekend, so it was a louder crowd, also my first time there, so really can't compare. The atmosphere is quaint and rustic and has an Old Dublin Pub and Dinner feel to it. Loved that about it, who could as for more on an Irish Weekend!

Try it, It will be a fun afternoon or evening. Great Food, Atmosphere and Staff! Tell John the Waiter I sent You! He is a gentlemen's kind of guy!

I went with a large group of friends on a Saturday night and they are great for large groups. For my appetitizer I got Brussels sprouts , which were amazing and shared s few with friends who also agreed they were amazing . For my entree I got the Ahi tuna , which was only okay. It lacked flavor and seasoning , the sweet potato mash and veggies were spot on, but the tuna was just eh. I personally wouldn’t order it again. As for dessert I got the banan cream pie, which was also excellent . Cutest little pie , well plated and easy to share with others. Overall it was a good experience. They also have a great drinks list.

Wow....we are never disappointed when we have dinner at Oscar’s. From the warm, yummy bread to a salad big enough to split and then to the salmon which we have every time (it is that good!), the whole evening was 5 stars. Great service, great food. What more could you ask for!

Our table was in a small alcove with a window, it was dark outside, I felt like I was in a closet at times. Very Dark, difficult to read the menu. We used our cell phones for lighting.
Our waiter, John, was great.
Food was great as usual.
We"ll return.

My husband and I went the day after Valentine's day to celebrate. We are from Chicago visiting and I had gone there last year and enjoyed it, so I suggested to go again. The food was delicious! I had scallops and they worked around my allergies beautifully. My husband said it was the most wonderful sheared tuna he has had. Thank you for a wonderful and romantic dinner.

I made a reservation two weeks in advance for Valentines Day. We arrived on time and we were seated in a “back room” that looked and felt like it was designed for overflow or a private party room. One doorway led into the room which had to be opened and closed with every trip by the servers. First time being seated in the overflow room with a reservation. The small room had little to no ambiance and the background music was very low so you heard every conversation around you and clanking of silverware on dishes etc. The food was good as usual but the service was not up to expectations. Dirty appetizer plates were left on the table and food was slow out of the kitchen. Our waiter was very polite but the longer trips back and forth from the kitchen to the “back room” kept him hustling all night.
