Smith & Wollensky Steakhouse - Columbus
Book your next event with us
Very nosy. It was had to talk above all the other conversations. Acoustics was bad. Everyone in large room. Out of 5 restaurants we ate at this was the least liked. Food was good but not great.
Food was really good and at a really good price but felt a little rushed.
Great food, cooked to perfection and as ordered. Drinks were done right ... 5 stars
It was a little loud, but the food and service was great!
We were immediately seated and all of the staff were extremely friendly. However, the decor was really outdated for the quality of my “nice steakhouse meal.” I counted 5 different types of mismatched lighting fixtures just in my area. We were there for restaurant week and it seems as soon as our waiter knew we wouldn’t be high rollers his level of enthusiasm went way down. In fact we never saw him until it was time clear the table. He didn’t even show up to refill our glasses or ask if we wanted another drink. After our meal was over he was super friendly again. I won’t be back. For the level of atmosphere and quality of food, I’ll go to J. Alexander’s next time.
Restaurant week! Will definitely be back! Food was delicious, service was amazing, and ambience was great!! Marcus was our waiter and went above and beyond! All the employees were super friendly! Definitely recommend! I had the filet Mignon, wedge salad, and coconut cake! Yummm!
The filet melted in my mouth. It was perfect. Their food is always outstanding. Wedge of lettuce was very good with little chunks of thick bacon. For desert I had their coconut cake with real whip cream. I can't wait to go back!
We are always pleased with the experience at S&W. This experience wasn’t like our typical as the food took quite a bit to deliver and our waiter was not as attentive as we would have hoped. I would highly recommend for a nice dinner out.
Great experience. Waitstaff was very attentive
1. Food is very good.
2. Service is ordinary. I had to wave my arms to track down a server for a second glass of wine to finish my meal!
3. This restaurant attracts men who like to bloviate. Having experienced this hard-to-solve problem more than once, I won't be back.
Wonderful food & service! We were able to sit outside & enjoy the breeze & views.
Food was fantastic and service was outstanding. A VERY memorable piece of steak!
My husband and I went in for lunch to celebrate his birthday. Our server, Debbie, was professional, warm and welcoming and made us feel special. We have gone a few times in the past and have always been pleased with everything. You really can't go wrong at this restaurant.
Holly was very accommodating. She took care of us and made sure everything was up to expectations. We ordered the Snake River Tomahawk Steak. Came out perfect. She gave us a dessert for our anniversary.
We had the pleasure of dining there last night. We had a wonderful server Christian. He was very helpful in our ordering and just a great personable server. Management also very nice. Our steak meals all were wonderful. The filet steak was cooked perfectly and our friend loved her Waygu steak. Great smashed potatoes and creamed corn sides. Wonderful beet salad and a crab cake loaded with crab no filler. Now the only problem is we are from Cleveland and we do not have a Smith and Wollensky there. Our restaurant and theater are booming. Think of coming to somewhere in the Cleveland area or suburbs.
We may need to drive to Granville from Cleveland to eat there again.
The best service and management of all the S&W SHs I've been to!
What an iconic establishment. The Management is top knotch. Thank You again for awesome lunch and experience
Wonderful night. Our anniversary #41 the restaurant bought us a delicious desert for the occasion.
Service was very much off the mark. We were not happy with this experience. We frequent this location a great deal and it was substantially not up to par with even lesser restaurants in the area.
This is certainly a favorite for our family. Upscale and excellent food and service. We would highly recommend this place when in the Columbus area. Excellent!
Birthday. First visit, but REALLY fantastic experience! Will be back.
Outstanding as always. The staff took great care of us (Thank you Marcus) and our meal was wonderful.
Great birthday celebration for my husband!! Great food and wine!
Food and service poor. Dishes not cleared from table. Waiter had to do everything. Rest room garbage overflowing. Definitely will never go back. King crab add on not worth price. I could go on.
Father’s Day celebration was awesome 😘🍷
Went for my husband’s first Father’s Day. Wanted to express appreciation to the waitstaff for putting up with our randomly fussy 5 month old. Just a suggestion to add a changing table to the restrooms.
Went for lunch on Father's Day. The place was nearly empty, and the staff was definitely off their game. Our server was friendly and took our order, promising to space things out. Then, after a long-ish delay the salads and appetizer appeared together at once. The server intercepted the runner, and sent the appetizer back to the kitchen for awhile until the salads were finished. After the appetizer was finished and cleared, we waited about half an hour for our entrees (burgers) which were overcooked and dry. We had asked for medium and these were on the far side of well done. At this point we just ate them, since they were edible, rather than fuss with the staff and wait another half hour for replacements.
S&W is usually our go-to for an outstanding meal, but this time around it was an expensive disappointment, especially since we know they usually do so much better.
Gary is just one of the best servers!
There for lunch. Quieter and less crowded. Service was excellent. Cobb salad was large and wonderful! Enough as an entree or for 3 people to split (note-it's only available at lunch). Lump crab cocktail was also terrific.
Love this place so much!! The atmosphere was great. Patio dining. I come to Easton every other weekend to shop and enjoy having lunch or dinner after my shopping spree.
The steak is a must!
Dinner on a Tuesday night with business contractor. It was late at 8:30pm, and the restaurant was quiet. We were seated inside but when balance of party arrived we asked to sit outside as the weather was very nice. Our server didn’t appear to mind and gave us a great table. No other guest around us, but we still had very good and attentive service. Food was well paced and delicious. Wine recommendation was good. I ordered the Oscar Filet with crab meat, asparagus and hollendaise. It was dark in our area, so I didn’t see my food very well — did see a mess of cut asparagus around the steak and covered in sauce. Maybe that is how it’s supposed to be served, but I thought it could have been “neater” presentation, did taste good tho. It had been 8 years since I last dined at S&W, and it was still a very good place for a special meal.
First server needed dismissed due to not listening and talking over me. Replacement was just fine. Food was most disappointing considering how many times we have dined at this location. Hope this was a one time miss, however the experience costs the restaurant some future business as we will consider others first.
Dinner for my husbands birthday great food! Get the lobster mac & cheese
Great visit as usual! Highly recommend the Wollensky burger for lunch.
OUTSTANDING DINING EXPERIENCE - MEAL, STAFF, LOCATION AND EVEN THE WEATHER WAS PERFECT FOR DINING OUTSIDE - PERFECT
Overall everything was good, but for the price, there are many other restaurants around Columbus that have this restaurant beat.
Best steak in town. Had the ribeye and wife had the filet which melted in your mouth. Everything was amazing.
My husband’s birthday- the experience was lovely!
Best steak I have ever had. The sides were delicious as well. My friend was celebrating getting a new job, and they offered her a complimentary dessert.
