We were a party of seven celebrating my father's birthday. Everyone ordered the seafood which was very enjoyable. I had the ribs and unfortunately is was dry, tasted like the meat has been re-heated with not much flavors. Worst of all, the fries were extremely dark; which is usually an indication of dirty oil in the fryer. My son had the chicken tenders with fries, both the chicken and fries were dark. We inquired about this with the chef, he said it was over-fried on purpose to give that color. I have been to many wonderful restaurants and have had many different types of cuisines, it was the first I have heard of this "technique". Needless to say the fries were left on the plate.

Neither of us had been here before but decided to give it a go for Valentine's Day and couldn't have been happier! We were promptly seated (had reservation) and our server, Ellen, quickly welcomed us with water, recommendations, and various specials.

My girlfriend elected the kale Caesar salad along with the meatballs (chicken/ricotta) and angel hair while I elected the house salad with walleye. Everything was delicious; we sampled each other's food and I couldn't decide which salad or entrée I preferred. The salads were great and the dressing was incredible. I'd never had walleye before but really enjoyed it with the crab sauce and the parsnip au gratin was amazing. It also came with a side of spaghetti squash; once I added a smidge of salt I enjoyed that much more.

Throughout the night Ellen kept our drinks filled and checked in us regularly. We were both highly impressed with their service levels given how busy of a holiday Valentine's Day is.

The ambiance is really nice and this is definitely somewhere I'd welcome going back to!

The food was wonderful as always. Been going there 12 years. Waitress very inattentive. Valentines Day but we had 5 PM reservation so not real busy. Meal was served and salad had not been served. When meal was 1/3 consumed she showed up. Wine glasses had been empty for a while. Asked for the salad and wine. Wine finally showed up. Asked for salad again. Waitress never introduced herself by name or mentioned the special. Sweet young lady but is lacking in the concept of customer service.

We were particularly pleased with the service provided by our server John. He was attentive without being overly 'present'. At one point, I was looking for an opportunity to request a refill of my drink. Moments later, I saw John...he was already on his way to our table with my drink.

My wife and I went to Oscars for a date night and we got there a little early before our reservation but they would have sat us immediately, but we got a drink at the bar. It was a nice bar but my wife ordered a cosmopolitan and it was not good. They did comp the drink though when we told them she did not like it. Then we were sat and ate 2 fish dishes and they were very good. The Kale salad was exceptionally good as well. We had a great time with great food.

Food was mediocre to poor for the price point. Taste was OK and presentation on the plate was awful - just an unappetizing pile of food. We waited for an hour at the bar before our reservation, and service was so slow that we barely finished one drink and had to quickly close out. Much better options in the area.

The Tuna tacos are superb! But all the food is excellent and the service Divine! They always have one fantastic authentic vegan entree that changes a few times during the year. Will return again and again !

I think this is still the best restaurant in Dublin. A longtime destination restaurant , it's worth the 30 minute drive from Downtown Columbus. The steak sticks are great and it has some of the best veal in town. Nice selection of wine priced reasonably. Highly recommended.

The food at Oscars was excellent. Two of us ordered the Walleye and one the seared Tuna. Both choices were winners! My wife ordered the angel hair pasta with chicken and it was a little dry. Great night though!

It was restaurant week. They sat us at a table in between two four tops and we felt very confined as could hear everyone’s conversation next to us. The food was not good. I ordered a filet but it had the texture of a sirloin. The only thing I liked about my food was the martini, and dessert.

As usual, Oscar's was prepared to handle Restaurant Week without a hitch! Service was punctual and friendly. Food was excellent as usual (Filet). We had reservations for 7pm on a Tuesday and were seated promptly!

As I have told many people in the past, Oscar's has the best value of any restaurant who is participating in Restaurant Week!

Overall, we had a very nice evening at Oscar's. Our server was attentive, yet very busy during the dinner "rush hour." The bar was backed-up which led to a delay in drink service. Our meals were very good which is consistent with the previous times that we have been there. We cannot wait until the weather is warmer and we are able to dine on the patio!!

First timers will definitely return in the future. Service was top notch and the food was better than I expected. Considering I had a beer and my wife had a martini and we had an app and salads and entree’s all for 80.00! My father in law has always loved this place and now we see why. Thanks for a great date night out. PS take advantage of the 2.00 valet that we failed to notice. great value as parking in the area on a Saturday can be a bit touch n go

We have a group of 8 friends and it is my job to pick a restaurant every New Year’s Eve. I chose Oscar’s first, because it was not far from our hotel. Second, because I read good reviews and third, because the prices were reasonable and the menu looked interesting. Wow! We were not disappointed! Great food, beautiful presentation, wonderful service, nice atmosphere! We liked it so much, we have already booked it for next NYE!!
