First time at The Guild House with colleagues and we were all very pleased with the evening. From the great service in this tastefully decorated space to the delicious food - appetizers, drinks, entrees and dessert. We started with drinks and an assortment of appetizers: Beets, Brussels sprouts and Cauliflower (largest appetizer of the bunch). All were good but the Beets are not to be missed. On the recommendation of our server, We had two different preparations of Sea Bass, one from hit menu and one of the daily specials, scallops and the soup of the day. Perfectly prepared and delicious. Topped off the meal with the Chocolate Peanut Butter dessert to share - very rich and highly recommended.

The food was very fresh with farm to table vegetable options. The music is a bit too loud and we asked them to turn it down a bit.

The Guild House seemed like a lovely place. However, our food was a disappointment. We were there for breakfast. The pancakes were very dense and dry. The eggs were not hot. I wouldn't order any of the food items again.

We enjoyed The Guild House's ahi ribbons and truffled eggs at brunch. The staff was welcoming and knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the farm-to-table menu. Our server gave great recommendations and accommodated our requests for fresh fruit. The dining area is bright and sunny - a nice mix of formal and casual. Very clean! Thank you.

We go to brunch here at least once a month. The service can be hit or miss, but the food is usually great. It just misses living up to a restaurant in a top hotel. Management seemed to pay attention to a "special table" but ignored visiting others.

Every bit of my experience was on point. Service from every person working was inviting and with a smile, the atmosphere warm and charming, and our food cannot be compared. Valet was backed up, perhaps due to the rain, so I had to park myself and walk in said rain, which wasn't far to the nearest garage. Aside from that minor hiccup, our evening was flawless and exquisite.

The quintessential Cameron Mitchell restaurant and a typical Columbus ‘fine dining’ restaurant. In other words, it is a casual restaurant pretending to be fancy in all elements except for the food, which is very good. Otherwise, the restaurant is incredibly noisy because of the thoughtless pop music blasting over the speakers. The intelligent table layout is stunted by outdated, suburban decor. The wine list is carbon copied from most popular steakhouses, heavy on California cabs, etc. Service is friendly and inconsistent. Worth a trip, nothing terribly special.

After numerous attempts w/ dining @ The Guild House, this visit was a redeemer. And the saving grace was server, Joel. He is terrific, he listened and made smart recommendations for each diner. Continue to offer Weekend Happy Hour and continue to improve the energy w/in the restaurant. Many thx. KT

First let me say that this continues to be one of my favorite go to locations in the Short North neighborhood. The food is delicious, creative and loaded with lots of fresh flavors. What makes the Guild House shine is its staff. Everyone you meet from the valet to the host wait staff and manager is giving it their all. I have dined here at least a dozen times and will keep coming back.
