Everyone there was extremely polite and great to talk to. The staff was knowledgeable about the menu and there were several options that are gluten friendly. The food was good, but for the price point, the fish relied on a lot of butter for flavoring.

Charming ambiance, top-notch service. Our server went out of his way to make sure the dish I chose was vegetarian. Then he went out of his way again to find the perfect wine pairing. My date's steak was cooked immaculately. The cocktails and appetizers were excellent. Well done!

Valentine’s Day dinner with our OSU son and his girlfriend. Service was exceptional as was the food on a busy night! Easily our favorite “nicer” restaurant to frequent when visiting in Columbus.

We and another couple made reservations for Valentines Day. Everything about our experience at The Guild House was wonderful, except for one significant issue. We were seated at the first table/booth in the bar area, closet to the host stand and the front door. Due to our location in the restaurant and the constant opening of the front door, all of us would receive “Arctic” blasts of cold air which made us cold and cooled our food rather quickly. Other than that, the evening and our experience was wonderful.

Visited family in Columbus. This place rivals many of the awesome restaurants we have dined at in LA, Chicago, New York, San Diego, Denver, DC....we were really surprised with how good the food was and the cool atmosphere and energy of the restaurant. Highly recommend for a date night.

I had been excited to check out The Guild House, but was not impressed. The ambience was nice, but the food was only mediocre. I would have expected better quality / preparation of food for the price. Drinks were good and we had a nice time. With all of the amazing dining options in the area, this one is not a keeper for me.

Very good food, even the plates I thought I wasn't going to enjoy I ended up liking a lot. The way the flavors went together was fantastic. Only issue was having to wait for my table after having a reservation.

Food and atmosphere are always amazing. Service was incredibly slow and jerky. 3 plus hours for 3 courses. First two came one after the other then a long drag before the main courses. Shouting at your dinner group is a general sign the music is too loud.

It was such a pleasure to have a dinner in a restaurant where they know how they should treat their clientele. Everyone was so nice and accommodating. The food was fabulous. I just can't say enough of the food and the drinks. To have a drink where the bartenders actually know how to make the drink is great. I highly recommend this restaurant, especially since the support the local farmers by buying locally. Wonderful night out!!!!

Really nice atmosphere and great service. The food is delicious and its worth trying their seasonal selections. Cocktails are well done and worth getting if you drink alcohol. I haven't tried their zero alcohol options but I would assume they are good as well. Would recommend to others.
