Patrick was amazing. He was always checking on us. They also made us feel special on our 15 year anniversary. The Salmon was the best and most tender salmon I have ever had. My wife really enjoyed the Filet, potatoes, carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes and of course the desserts. We will definitely be back. It is a little pricey, but worth the investment for sure. If you have not been, what are you waiting for???

We were well served. Steak Tartare excellent. Burata also excellent One entree, pork , was overcooked. One house cocktail seemed weak and unimaginative.

Probably one of the best meals my fiancé and I have had to date. Service was excellent and the sea bass was incredible. Worth every penny if you want a nice night out on High Street.

The food was fine. The service staff was rude and dismissive. They made me feel like I didn’t belong there. I work as a chef and have been in the food service industry for 30 years. The service and attitudes were unprofessional.

Our server, Stephanie, was Outstanding with the six of us! Cocktails were impressive! The carrots and grit side dishes were excellent. The pork dish was thought to have far too much pickled relish. The lemon blueberry dessert was the favorite of three tried. The fig, ricotta on toast/special appetizer was not worth $16 at all.

Guild house has always been one of my favorites; however, recently their prices have gone up a great deal and their portions are about half the size of what they use to be. We were still hungry after appetizers and pasta dinners.

We have always enjoyed the Guild House so we went to celebrate our anniversary. Upon entering we were greeted with congratulations by the host staff and then were seated at a spectacular table by the window. Our server, Patrick, was exceptional! Patrick was very pleasant and made sure our experience was memorable. Food was fantastic from appetizers to our complementary dessert. Honestly, this was one of our best Cameron Mitchell dining experiences and would rank it at the same level as his Ocean Club. Definitely would recommend! Thanks again Patrick- and by the way- nice shoes!

The food here is excellent, and the service is even better. Aesthetically, though, the space is kind of off, like it's going for a contemporary feel but accidentally landed in 2010. The TAO-like music doesn't help.

The staff was incredibly helpful, not only our server, but other servers as well as managers and food runners made sure food was brought out in a timely manner. Everything came out correct and tasted fantastic. The pancake brunch was great! Food is pricey, but worth it for the quality we received. We had a great experience and will be returning.

This is my favorite restaurant in Columbus and have been there many, many times.. This time, we went for father's day brunch and ordered the truffled eggs and eggs benedict. My truffled eggs were outstanding, my husband complained that the bread under the eggs benedikt was thin and dry. Service started slow and got better, but very friendly. Music perfect level. That place is always so cold though. But I would go again, anytime.

I’ve never had less than a fine meal at Guild House, but last night’s dinner beat even the usual high standard. Started with the house gin cocktail and the toast starter with salt-cured strawberries. The main course was the sea bass in a lobster broth. The fish was crisp on top, hot throughout, moist and flaky. For dessert, we shared the blueberry lemon pistachio cake. Even the decaf coffee was excellent. This meal would have earned in A in any city. The service was cheerful and efficient.

We celebrated our anniversary by having a lovely romantic dinner at the Guild House.
To start the evening we were treated to champagne compliments of the house and ended the meal with a complimentary dessert. Our waiter was wonderful. He was very helpful in making suggestions and pacing our meal in a relaxed manner. A perfect evening to say the least!
