Food was great as always. Service could of been better. Waitress was nice but wasn’t around when we wanted cocktail refills.
Good food. Excellent service. The warm butter cake with ice cream was awesome!
Could use more vegetarian options
Sunday lunch with friends! The chicken and grits were delicious. The chicken was so tender I could cut ut with a fork.
My new favorite place! Food is great and the ambiance is perfect. It’s a nice place for a date. Not too “uppity”
Lovely small place in German village
Good healthy choices prepared just to order
We had Sea food and a few drinks
South Village Grill is always great! Oysters are big and fresh. A must everytime I go. Our bartender Andy makes a mean martini and excellent at his craft. Hands down one of my go to spots in Columbus!
Truly exceptional meal!
Professions o and supportive service.
Comfortable and attractive space.
Will be back for certain!!
Everything was wonderful!
Love this local spot. Chef prepared and rotating menu is always complete. Cocktails are unique and always fun. Loved the pork chop and scallops and can’t wait to try the lobster roll.
Great anytime option.
Great variety in the menu. I’m a vegetarian. Always happy when A place has something for everyone. We had fantastic service. Drinks were great. Food is spectacular. I had never been there before and I will def be going back. Really loved it! Highly recommended by all of us.
Still great service, great food, and unbeatable happy hour deals!
I had the best experience here for Happy Hour! It was $1 oyster night and also happy hour. It was such an awesome deal! Our server was very kind and knowledgeable. The oysters were some of the best I’ve ever had and I’ve eaten a lot of oysters. The hummus was also exceptional which is pretty rare since it’s hummus. My favorite part was the gooey butter cake for dessert. One of the best desserts I’ve ever eaten!!! We weren’t even going to get dessert but ended up giving it a shot and I couldn’t be more glad! Thanks so much to the SVG for an awesome date night!!!
AAHH-mazing! Fabulous cocktails, fabulous food, fabulous service! Our first time at this restaurant and CAN NOT wait to go back. Our server, Mitch was so friendly, fun, and professional. The food was platted beautifully which only enhanced our experience that didn't need to be enhanced because the food was great as is. Loved, loved, loved!
The various offerings were universally excellent. Appetizer, cocktails and wine selection were equally satisfying. Calm, pleasant atmosphere. Quiet enough to have a comfortable conversation around the table. Highly recommended.
Really great spot. We’ve eaten here a few times and will def return. The menu changes regularly and they have specials.
Great service and food! The ambience of this place is fantastic. I hope to come back soon!
Excellent place! Just go!
One of our favorite restaurants in GV food and service is exceptional.
Noise level was much too high. If I had not been sitting next to my wife we would not have been able to hear each other. I do not understand why 1) music must be played all the time over the noise of conversations, and 2) why greater efforts are not made to muffle sound with appropriate noise suppression.
No two ways about it. Absolutely just stellar food. Fresh, great flavor, well prepared, and enough variety to suit most any taste. Service wasn't maybe the most attentive ever, but good enough that it didn't detract from the experience. If you're looking for somewhere to just relax and enjoy a great meal with family or friends, it's difficult to give a higher recommendation. Give it a try. You WON'T be disappointed!
Fabulous food with some novel New Orleans “takes”. Superb service. We went for Sunday Brunch and fell in love! You’ll love it too!
Walkable, cozy and always good food!
Great for lunch!
Wonderful! We'll be back!
Had a nice meal in a great atmosphere with some out of town friends. Will definitely be coming back.
This place never disappoints
The food was amazing and reasonably priced!
Just fine, no issues. Enjoyed a mean for a birthday- it is a crowded and noisy place so remember that!
Our waitress was phenomenal. Very kind, quick, and knew the menu well. The food was alado great. Thanks for a wonderful dinner!
Would like to see more menu items
Loved this fun lunch spot, great ,hip area! Took out of town company. They loved it too!
We went for a special birthday. It was perfect! Music was stellar. We will go again.
Great. Food, service, everything.
Service was stellar and we loved our experience. Our disappointment was that the food was just so bland. The concept of the dishes and the plating was there, but everything lacked flavor. The lamb was perfectly cooked to medium rare, but there was no sear on the meat and it lacked even a hint of salt. The generous portion of risotto was undercooked. It wasn’t creamy like I would have expected and the garlic was overwhelming. The short rib, like the lamb was cooked perfectly, but fell flat on flavor. We were sorry we didn’t have better food experience, because we genuinely thought it was an otherwise pleasant evening.
Great food , great service would recommend to anyone. We enjoyed our visit.
Great service, delicious food!
We had a wonderful dinner at SVG! Great service and great food!!
We really enjoyed the evening and the wonderful food. Our server was very helpful in explaining our selections and we really liked the casual yet sophisticated atmosphere. I've already told several people about our experience...and the beignets!
The restaurant has a cool look to it but it’s a bit cramped. A small aisle of 2 tops runs through the middle making it a pretty tight space through the main area. The apple drink (Fall Back I think?) and brussels appetizer were both quite good, though the brussels were very large and difficult to cut. The filet mignon was well cooked and tender but lacked seasoning. The slab of scalloped potatoes below it was ok but nothing you couldn’t get from a box. The braised leeks were quite sour and the romanesco sauce was weirdly gritty and added nothing to the dish. Still, it was decent enough that we ate it all. However, when we got to the beignets for dessert, they were raw throughout. We showed the waiter who said, “that’s how beignets are supposed to be.” We told him they certainly are not and he took out plates away in a huff. After speaking to a manager he came back and offered a different dessert. We went with the cheesecake to go. It was the tiniest sliver with a to go cup containing 3 blueberries. A manager did come over and was kind and apologetic and provided much stronger service for the remainder of the evening than the server had. If you decide to go, I would recommend reservations due to the small size and definitely skip dessert.
