My brother, visiting from Sarasota, Florida, found The Top to have "excellent cuisine and outstanding service in an elegant and very tasteful atmosphere; an excellent dining experience." He had escargot followed by a petit filet. Our guest also had a petit filet and she likewise found it to be excellent. I also started with escargot, followed by wonderful, well-prepared prime rib. All three dinners were accompanied by huge Idaho baked potatoes and equally large portions of broccoli. The Top is a first-class, first-rate 1950s era steakhouse. This was the second visit to The Top for all three of us. We would all go back again and highly recommend it.
It was ok, not the best by any means though. I don't like the caddy of sour cream and butter for the potatoes. I asked for it on the side and then it was plopped all over my potato.
Steak was a little cold, broccoli was crunchy and not cooked through. My husbands bacon wrapped filet-bacon was fatty and greasy and when he took it off the steak, it was grey underneath.
I took my filet home and it tasted better the next day in my quesadilla that I put it in.
I didn't see anyone under the age of 30 eating there, mostly people who probably have been eating there since the day they opened with their parents and they "think" it's good because there is nothing else to compare it to.
I'd rather drive 90 minutes and go back to Ruth Chris in Cincinnati and I will next time.
Always love going to The Top! Great service, and absolutely the best steak in town! Plenty of non-beef options, too.
Excellent meal and service. We were glad we had reservations as it was packed even on a Thursday night. Already planning another visit.
The Top Regularly wins stakehouse of the year in Columbus for good reason. The food is amazing and the dining room is like being in an episode of Mad Men. It is expensive but worth it.
The top was amazing and exceeded our expectations in every way. The staff rivaled the food for high end quality and we will be back for future special occasions!!
Always the perfect evening. Best friends, food and service.
Old school classic.
They did a bait and switch with the advertised dinner menu. I will not return there. I have had many dinners there in the past. Must have new management. The live music was terrible
The food was amazing! We loved the atmosphere, the drinks were perfect. Everyone was very upbeat and very helpful, I can't wait to go back!
We had the most delicious meal - prime rib and lobster - and the menu includes some wonderful offerings from the '50's era . Our server was so kind, solicitous, and knowledgeable about the menu and the history of The Top. What a Columbus gem!
