This is the perfect place to have a relaxing not-rushed dinner. Me and my wife took advantage of the wonderful ambiance and "caught-up" with another couple. Our waitress, Sarah, made wonderful suggestions. I enjoyed the medallion special she recommended. Pretty extensibe selection of wines by the glass and spirits.

Valet guy hit another car and never told us. Spagio said not their responsibility as Valet operated by another company. Not acceptable

New chef and excellent new recipes, attractively presented. Some favorite dishes are still available from the previous menu.

So glad the new ownership kept many of the favorites on the menus. Rack of lamb (my favorite) food as always. Pan seared scallops were fantastic. The new chef included his personal touch to the scallops. They were delicious. They kept the umbrellas and added a few more of differing colors. Service as great as always. Were initially seated near a group of young women celebration a birthday. The noise and chatter was too much. Asked to be seated in a quite area a and they were very accommodating. Desert rack as good as ever. Many of the favorites still there. Did have a cherry crisp which we haven't seen before. It was delicious. They are planning a special menu in the near future with many of the old favorites. Cann't wait . All of the old charm is still there except the wooden dogs and parorts. Misss them since we knew the artist for many years (too Bad). I have seen many of previous patrons marvel over those sculptures.

No conterns thar the old Spagios has changed. As great as ever. Always a plesant evening dining there. We'll be back.

Unfortunately there was a mix up in the kitchen and it took forever to receive our food. The restaurant took a percentage off the bill and gave us complimentary desserts which was appreciated. Unfortunately 3/5 of us didn’t even finish ours meals as we didn’t really care for them. Love downtown Grandview but unfortunately we will not return.

We had delicious food but the wait time far exceeded reasonable. The manager even came to table and apologized but that was it. It was a week day and not that busy. We let the waitress know we were starved and she acknowledged it was too long and I suspected that is why manager came over to say he was checking on it. That was nice but apology and dessert or adjustment on our bill was in order. After food finally came out it was like nothing ever happened.
Too many choices these days to not make experience right.

I had the Weiner Schnitzel and the pork was tough. My wife's dip of some type was really more like a pate than a dip. The service was great as usual.

We waited at our table for 15 minutes and no one ever came to even bring water. I told the host but still no one came. The restaurant wasn’t even crowded so that doesn’t explain the lack of service. We finally got up and left. We told the host we were leaving and he didn’t seem to care.

The food and service were good, the overall experience just felt like an outdated concept. It was quite expensive too. I would expect a newer, trendier experience or a better value.

We were celebrating our anniversary and the staff were wonderful! They intentionally sat us at the best table, wished us a happy anniversary and were so attentive! Spagio is special to us, thanks to fantastic food and service!

We were seated at 7. Our waitress came to our table within 10 minutes; however, we weren’t sure of our drink order so she poured water and gave us fresh bread, saying she would return in a few minutes. After 30 minutes, she returned, apologizing profusely and said the kitchen was backed up and they were having some trouble. We placed our drink order and them waited another 15 minutes to place our food order. Once we ordered, our food came within 15-20 minutes, but the food quality was not worth the wait. Lobster bisque was runny; summer pasta was bland—nothing special; our kids ordered the Gorgonzola pasta with chicken and did not care for the sauce, and chicken was marginal. Also ordered a pizza—nothing special, and a Chopped Salad, which was “meh”.

We had been to the restaurant several years ago and what a great experience and were excited to be back in town to visit again. Definitely not as we remembered it and the food was underwhelming especially for the price.

Spagio is a place to go for some originality as well as quality of food and service. Too many restaurants in Columbus are just copycat and can offer nothing more than novel atmospheres or simple proximity as an appeal. Spagio is worth the trip.

My boyfriend and I were the only customers in the restaurant who weren’t 50+ and the servers ignored us for 10 mins until we got up and said something.

We were delighted to be seated outside on a lovely evening. But after sitting there for 30 minutes, we finally went to track down our waiter. We then waited another 15 minutes for our wine -- and another 30 minutes for our dinners (which came mostly lukewarm). Not an evening to reminisce about....

Party of 9...previously one of my favorite spots. Sadly, service was erratic, one diner, whose order was completely wrong waited 15 min for correction. One diner requested iced tea 4 tomes to no avail. Worst of all, the prime rib special was so tough...had to saw off bites. Don't know if any of this was related to announcement earlier in day that Spagios had been sold. So disappointing after great years, but there were no apologies and no offer of partial comp.

We have dined at Spagio’s since it was the Gourmet Market!!! This time was to celebrate my wife’s birthday. As usual, we were greeted by Helga and had a warm, sincere conversation.
The food was outstanding!!! Our waitress was charming and the evening was so memorable.

The menu never disappoints, I don’t think there is anything I’ve tried here that I wouldn’t tell people you have to go to Spagio just for that and this weekend it was the seafood chopinio

Fantastic

Cocktails were mostly ice, though beer was fine. Service was attentive to food allergies, but slow. It seemed that on that night, they were short of staff in the kitchen or dining room.

The service was slow and our server seemed to be trying a little too hard to fit into a nice restaurant setting. The Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc we ordered were excellent, but the food was mediocre. Not what I recall from having been at Spagio in the past and not really something I’d recommend to others.

Spagio remains consistently one of the finest restaurants in Columbus. They have great Sunday specials as well, so if you are looking for a quality dining experience, you should go to Spagio.

They have a great menu and their desserts are really nice! It wasn't too crowded but it was fairly noisy considering the number of people who where there. Their bathrooms could be updated.

It was a beautiful evening, so we were able to sit outside. The prime rib was delicious, the service was great, and the ambience was perfect. Our out-of-town guest loved the food and the neighborhood atmosphere.
