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!
The Top is a special place for dining. First of all when you enter The Top, you are stepping back in time to that era reminiscent of Sinatra and the boys. The booths are cozy, the atmosphere is "cool" and the Martinis are flowing. The steaks are classic and excellent. All the sides and salads and appetizers you'd expect. But then there's the piano bar. If your lucky, you grab a spot at the piano bar and you are pleasantly entertained with all your favorites. Love The Top
Great food as always. Service was terrific. Pricey so it's a special occasion type thing but very good.
Best Steak in Columbus hands down. Try the Thick Cut Bacon with Granny Smith Slaw Appetizer, its my favorite. Great Service as always. Never disapponted.
There is a close atmosphere here because of space, and unfortunately we had some very loud parties near us and the more they drank, the less we wanted to be in the area. The food and service was as expected: good! I would go again, but be aware that there is not a lot of space and you will not have a "private" affair on the weekend as it is usually very busy because the food is good.
Food was excellent. Prime rib done perfectly. Baked potato and garlic green beans great. My friends and I had a good dinner in a nice restaurant. Staff very friendly and attentive.
