Goood was top notch. Octopus was cooked perfectly.
The food was creative and delicious, but the real star was the service. Our server was both attentive and knowledgable. She seemed to materialize at just the right time to answer a question or to see if we were in need of another imaginative cocktail. Overall, it was a wonderful dining experience.
The food at Service Bar is so incredibly delicious!! And the staff is wonderful too!
Service Bar is the best restaurant in Columbus for my time and money. Highly attentive team and a deeply thoughtful chef - it's always a pleasure to visit and eat with them.
Inventive and delicious food with good service.
Everything we've ever had here was excellent, and the staff has always been friendly and professional. When I ordered the Shaking Beef, I asked our lovely waitress, Logan, to have the chef prep an über hot pepper sauce for me. And sure enough, she brought out 2 options, both made with Ghost peppers. I was impressed. It takes a considerable amount of heat to get my attention, and the chef rose to the challenge. This is certainly one of our favorite restaurants in Columbus,
Just the most interesting yet approachable menu. Perfect for my group of friends who enjoying trying new flavors and sharing small plates.
Service was excellent, friendly and informative.
Looking forward to returning when restrictions are lifted.
Food two stars, Presentation five stars, Needs more sustance and less glamour
We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. A group of friends of mine have been friends for 50 years we try to go to different places once a month. This is on our list to repeat again. The food was delicious one friend is vegan and it’s very hard to find menus to suit everyone in the party but this one hit the mark!
Overall, one of the best places to eat in Columbus! Great food, cool ambiance, and excellent service.
Dick was awesome!
I had prepared myself to spend a bit of money for good food, and was not disappointed in the flavor (although I was not exactly prepared for the level of spice in some of the food!). However, I was a shocked to receive my bill and learn the dessert we enjoyed was nearly as much as my main course. Book ahead and plan to spend a pretty penny, but you will enjoy the meal!
You were Out of the hamburger that was on the menu. My husband and son were frustrated because that was their first choice for the menu item. It seems odd you would run out of a burger. Cocktails were ok. Second I stuck with a regular vodka soda. The specialty cocktails were pricey for how they tasted.
The drinks are good and unfortunately I have had better food here so pretty disappointed with this visit
Excellent dinner! Strongly recommend the brisket tacos as an appetizer - with the add-on! Main courses of duck and the halibut were to notch as well. Service was very good. Little bit hard to find as did not realize was inside Midwest Spirits building.
Early Valentines Day
Great restaurant. Love the food and atmosphere. Always enjoy a night there. Great cocktails as well.
Great place to spend an evening!
Poor service. Fifth time being there and I’ve never had good service. This time was particularly bad. The host was not interested in problem solving or even being welcoming at all.
Service Bar is always excellent. Highly recommended!
The food and service was great. We had dinner after taking the distillery tour (and buying a lot of spirits!).
My dinner was a bit skimpy... 7 small (rabbit filled) tortellini for $25.. I left still
hungry! My fault for not ordering something else.
Food and presentation was absolutely amazing!
Awesome food and excellent service.
Logan was awesome. The food and cocktails 10/10. Fantastic dinner! Thank you
Things were very good but it took a long time for the food and drinks to get to the table, especially since it was a weeknight in January.
But would definitely try it again.
Small menu but ever single item is fantastic. Drinks are awesome. Parking is fair.
Amazing. Best restaurant in Columbus! Dishes with unique flavor twists
We eat here frequently. Food never disappoints. Great drinks and amazing staff
Always a great place to eat. Had a great meal & excellent service. Definitely go back.
Service Bar is a great dining experience from start to finish! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone with a discerning palate. The cocktails are a work of art and the food is simply amazing!
Sister in law was in from out of town and we wanted to share the best of Columbus with her. A treasure on our city.
Delicious meal with very good service although the waitress grabbed our Brussels sprouts before we were done, which was a shame because they were ridiculously good.
Quiet, ambient atmosphere. Friendly staff. Food was excellent, but is on the expensive side. I chose the vegetarian dumplings, Szechaun style. There were only five, as our server did tell me, but they were good and definitely spicy. I had dessert which happened to be a seasonal Peppermint Katie cake similar to a small Yule Log. It was tasty, cooled my mouth off after the entree, and was just enough to now pleasantly fill me. My daughter had the short rib dish which was quite a bit with the short rib very tender. Since the restaurant is part of Middle West Spirits, the cocktails served are made with their own spirits. The Long Rum Drink I had made with their own Stone Fruit Vodka and Rum was dark and delicious with a spicy lime taste.
The menu is a bit limited and all over the place cuisine wise, for instance we had the taco, pasta, and the Indian fried chicken. Service was good and the food was quality!
Delicious food and truly inspired cocktails. Everyone from the hosts, to bartenders, servers, and bottle shop employees are welcoming, kind, and very knowledgeable about their alcohol. The food is simply stunning in nice portions so you get enough to feel satisfied but not enough to feel uncomfortably full or need to take leftovers. I also like how they changed the seating arrangements to several individual tables instead of the one long table shared with strangers.
Great food, great service. One of the best restaurants in Columbus
Over-rated. Dark with tables on top of each other. Minimal privacy. Confusing menu-the waiter took 20 minutes to explain each dish in detail. Would not go back.
Perfect dining experience as always!
It was great! Love service bar! Though, the server made a mistake about one of our drinks. She apologized, but I was surprised it wasn’t on the house.
