The Guild House - Columbus Ratings and Reviews
The decor and atmosphere was nice, but the music was not right for the setting. I imagined a more relaxed dinner style, not poppy bar/club music. The food we had was delicious, but not Vet many options were offered. I am person that generally will go with chicken or beef at a restaurant and there were only two dinner options under those categories. I would recommend this for a happy hour/ quick drink after work, but most definitely not dinner.
Fabulous food. The Prime Rib Cap was an outstanding appetizer, The plating of entrees was beautifully done. Next time I would add a vegetable side dish. The sides with the entree were spartan. The wine list was big on California and Iberian Reds. A few more nicely structured reds that match well with food would be appreciated. Service was attentive and adequate, but we had to ask what specials were. A quick question about whether we wanted dessert was accepted with no suggestion of what was on offer or if we wanted coffee or another drink. Parking near the Restaurant is impractical. We should have cabbed from the Hotel we were staying at.
Austin our server was very professional and friendly.
Me and my wife were celebrating our first wedding anniversary and he was the only person who said congratulations, the hostess were not very friendly he looked upset about something, may because it was busy night, I understand but always show a smile to your guest.
I loved the music they played at the restaurant, usually you hear forks & plates noises in restaurants or the broken glasses in the back.
The food was AMAZING!! Austin explained every detail of the dish.
The cocktails at the bar are very creative and great! Totally recommended if your table is not ready and the hostess is grumpy, Stop by the bar and those guys will treat you very well.
Every dish was creatively conceived and delectable. Perhaps the very best meal I’ve had in Cbus. Our server wasn’t terribly personable and didn’t seem very knowledgeable, but he did loosen up a bit as the meal proceeded. But for that, it was a 5-star dining experience. I ordered the salmon entree, and it was prepared to perfection! We shared a pumpkin bread pudding for dessert, which was delicious, but we had a good laugh over the presentation—it resembled a grave :-). I will definitely be coming back!
Possibly my favorite restaurant interior. Gorgeous balance of modern and classic design. I want to come back just for the ambiance. Foodwise, I did feel like my snapper could have been cooked better (wasn't flaky and a little underdone) but I still enjoyed my dish.
Wonderful experience but one design flaw. There is a long row of booth seating that extends east-west where several tables are situated. Not so good when two children sitting on the booth seating one table away start and were bouncing up and down on the seating. It was like having dinner while riding a roller coaster. Advised the Manager but he was disinterested. Perhaps if he was sitting where I was, he would have thought differently. We have dined here several times and will go back but never to the booth seating. This is design flaw that should be corrected. iI am not against children dining at a expensive restaurant. I would just want them to be able to bounce in their own booth.
I now have a new favorite! We took our daughters and their husbands PLUS a toddler out to dinner the Friday after Thanksgiving. We were fortunate enough to get seated in a private room (there were 9 of us) that enabled our granddaughter to be up and about. Not only did our server take care of our every need, the food was delicious! The appetizers served with our cocktail were unique and tasty. The wine list was was wonderful - some new ones we had never heard of along with our favorites. We all had different entrees and every plate was cleaned! I can't wait to go back!
Been here before, and this was a good experience except there was an unusual crowd (we picked T-giving night and it was the only thing open causing a big crowd). Still, they made it a good experience, and the food is creative and EXCELLENT. Highly recommend this place for a special experience.
The double birthday dinner on Thanksgiving was a wonderfully creative non-traditional take on the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. The restaurant provided our party a sense of intimate privacy for our special occasion, within the vibrant buzz of activity around the other holiday guests. Service was very attentive.
Unfortunately we made the mistake of going on Thanksgiving Day for our first visit to The Guild House Restaurant. We are frequent diners at many other of the Cameron Mitchell family of restaurants in and around Columbus and are always pleased with the level of service and quality of food that we receive. We were sorely disappointed however with the quality of the Thanksgiving special fixed menu at The Guild House Restaurant. The salad was saturated with what appeared to be some sort of raspberry vinaigrette, so much so that I couldn’t finish it. Albeit the portion size was minuscule. The most disappointing part of the meal sadly was the entree of shredded turkey served over a spoonful of mashed potatoes with a few chunks of very undercooked carrots with a few croutons thrown in to represent “stuffing”. I would call it a sort of “turkey hash” for want of a better description. I can not comment on the bread pudding that was offered for dessert as I was so disgusted by the fist several courses that I couldn’t bring myself to endure still yet another disappointing course.
I wonder if Mr. Mitchell pre-approved and/or sampled this menu? If so, his taste buds must have been turned off at the time. I would say that for anyone who were first time guests to a Cameron Mitchell restaurant on a Thanksgiving at The Guild House probably would think long and hard before trying another. Fortunately for us we know this is not the norm at most of his restaurants. Why mess around with the tried and true traditional Thanksgiving feast Mr. Mitchell?
Went there for Thanksgiving dinner. Restaurant had a Turkey price fixe option as well as regular menu. Turkey dinner was creative with small cuts of Turkey over a bed of dressing and cranberries with a gravy with green beans in it. You basically had a single mixed dish that represented the entire meal. It was presented well and was very good. The butternut squash soup was not so good. It was bland and in need of plenty of salt to give it any real flavor.
We chose to have Thanksgiving dinner here; it was a great decision. Everything was done well, and we will be back. Just one minor suggestion - the portions could have been a bit more generous, especially for a holiday meal. Add a few dollars to the price and increase the portion size a bit. Otherwise, it was a great experience and we highly recommend it.
so sad! came thinking it would be a great day for 1/2 price appetizers at 4-630. we were charged full price... when questioned... long explanation by waitress about why she didn't know to charge us 1/2 price as i had called in morning and even asked!! slow service by waitress, never even glanced at us (only 3 tables of customers) as she served other people... worse service we have had in a very long time. food was good which was waited for just like the wine glasses!!! asked for glasses of wine which took forever to get even tho they only had 3 tables of customers... go figure.. very disappointed AND WE HAD ASKED FOR 1 SPECIAL TABLE.... but another group 1 of the 3 came in and took the table we received on our reservation!!!
Food sounded flavorful but was lacking (ordered truffled eggs and lobster and eggs). Service was not as attentive for the level of this restaurant. Again, servers seemed only concerned with their tables and could not clear a plate or poor coffee if it was not their table - even if walking by.
They need to work as a team more.
