Great creative food, great service, not cheap, but good value.
We always enjoy The Refectory. We ordered a delicious bottle of wine. My husband and I both had the salmon with a wonderful, light butter sauce. So good. Plus it came with the cutest little green beans wrapped in a carrot and the meal also included fettucine. My son got the pigeon pastry puff. He is very adventurous, but it just wasn't his thing. For dessert, we ordered the pear tart which is always good and the strawberry bourbon cake which was wonderful. We capped it off with Grand Marnier and Irish Coffee. Our service was impeccable, so kind and attentive. Since I didn't order a dessert and my husband and son had, the waiter brought me my own chocolate cake. It was a night to remember.
An AMAZING dinner; one of the best meals that I’ve ever had! Everyone should experience this place!!!!
What a fabulous and adventurous menu. A special menu of wild game birds was such a special treat. Everything, including the service was top notch. I asked for advice on wine to go with my pheasant and they brought me two generous tastes to pick from.
Elegant presentation of wild pheasant. Excellent flavor and tenderness. Recommendation of a elegant floral white wine from the Canaries a thinking-outside-the-box hit and a nice pairing with pheasant and snapper entrees. High value for dollar given fine meal. This restaurants ability to offer unusual wine choices is a big positive.
Another delicious pre theatre fixed price Bistro dinner, as always! The short ribs and the sweet potato cheesecake were amazing!! The Refectory is our pre theatre dining spot!!
Hunter table menu was interesting but VERY overpriced, too salty and too seasoned. It was difficult to taste the nuance of flavor of each species of birds because of the overpowering taste of the sauce.
To give you a price comparison, the price of feeding 5 people at the Refectory was the same price as feeding 13 people at Giuseppe ritrovo in Bexley.
We so enjoyed our evening. Scott was so very attentive to all our needs as were the two other servers. The birthday treat added a very special touch.
Fantastic dining experience. My wife has wanted to try this place since we moved here two years ago, but I was reluctant. I am glad she finally twisted my arm to go - the food was outstanding. I had the bison and she had the duck breast - both were prepared perfectly and the plating was as beautiful as it was delicious. Our server helped us with recommendations to include dessert and wine pairings - he was fantastic. I really don't have any negative things to say about this experience and I hope to go again soon. Well done, Refectory!
Service, ambiance, food, experience are all amazing. For an experience you can count on and a meal that will exceed your expectations, this is the place. Save room for dessert. We have never tasted delights of this caliber.
Everything was great! The two people who waited on us was awesome, the only thing I have to complain about is how there was an event going on upstairs and we had a table near it so it would be really loud when the doors would be open and how our table was a little rocky/unsteady. But other than that everything was great!
The entire evening was a delight. Our server did a fabulous job and the food was exceptionally delicious and beautifully presented.
Recommended by a friend. Did not disappoint! Loved the menu and venue.
We were celebrating our baby girl’s 1st monthassary. Amazing experience here..
The food and service was excellent. It happened to be the last service before a menu change so some menu items were not available. We were informed of that right away, but a note on the website would have been appreciated. Overall experience was excellent.
This is my first time dining at Refectory and to say I wasn't disappointed is an understatement. The quality and presentation of the meal was phenomenal and the staff goes above and beyond to ensure an amazing dining experience. This is a perfect place to celebrate a special occasion or simply enjoy a night out to splurge on wonderfully prepared French cuisine. I would highly recommend the Bison Loin and Creme Brûlée...and if you can swing it, ask for a table in Juan's section.
This was our first visit - we had heard such great things about the Refectory- and most of them were spot on. The food was amazing - presentation was delightful and preparation was flawless. We had made the reservation several weeks in advance and had to wait on our arrival. It took over 3 hours for our meal - we did not have appetizers so that was salad, entree and dessert. Great waitstaff but overall Service was extremely slow. We will try again but with caution.
Everything was cooked to profession. Great value. Host and service recommendations were perfect. Manager greeting was professional.
Wonderful place. The service was perfect as was the food. Great way to celebrate my birthday.
This is by far our favorite restaurant. Always lives up to our expectationccs. Just plain perfect.
The Refectory is worth every cent. Lamb was amazing, wine list is extravagant and the wait staff were memorable. My boyfriend and I were celebrating Valentine's Day a little late, and our servers decided we should have 2 desserts instead of 1-on the house! Would highly recommend.
First time and were not disappointed! Great atmosphere, great food and the service was amazing.
Fantastic meal all around! Every course was perfect, as was the service!
Great food and menu choices, no complaints at all. I was surprised, however, that our waiter used pen and paper to write down our order. It was just the 2 of us and it seemed a little odd. I would discourage the waiters from doing this unless there is a large group.
Incredible! The food and the service was second to none. If you live in Columbus or bearby and you have a special occasion to celebrate, this is where you should come.
Haven't been there for some time and forgot what I was missing. The staff is extremely attentive without being overbearing. Best food and dining experience in Columbus, hands down.
Amazing experience as always. Great date night with awesome service!
Had a nice Valentine’s Day dinner but the food took almost 2 hours to get to us. Will come back but probably not as often since the long wait time for food is so long. If you’re looking for nice ambiance and good drinks then go here.
My wife and I went for the first time and were underwhelmed. While I can appreciate the classic French theme and the historical building, this restaurant is outdated. I got the feeling that nothing has been changed in a very long time. For the most part the food was good, except for the bisque which was burnt and inedible, but nothing we ate was exciting. For having spent $400+ on dinner we were simply unimpressed.
I loved everything about this restaurant. It was THE BEST Valentine’s Day ever. For now on it will be my favorite place to celebrate special occasions. Top ten restaurant
Great food, kind people. A pretty good place for date
Amazing, expensive but incredible food service overall experience
This restaurant is a special place! With it's deep history and connection to Columbus combined with it's fantastic food and impeccable service, it's a real gem! The menu choices are diverse and delicious. It's perfect for a quiet date night, lively group gathering, or just a double date. We love going to the Refectory!
Food was awesome and the wine specialist picked us a wonderful wine in our price range. Wonderful restaurant.
Excellent first time at the Refectory. We had a little bit of a wait to get our reserved table but it was worth it.
The food was excellent and their foie gras a true delicatessen. Same thing should be said about our entrees and especially about dessert: their creme brûlée was out of this world.
Our waiter was not only knowledgeable but also always around for attending our needs and even providing us with great conversation.
I am looking forward to future visits.
The atmosphere is incredible as an old church and school. The owner is also the host and the servers are impeccably trained. And, the food was great!
As always the food and service were great. This is definitely the best restaurant in Central Ohio.
Excellent. Best fine dining in Columbus.
This place is timeless and romantic with good old fashioned wait staff. The food is exquisite and wine list extensive with a variety of price points to fit the budget. It's a five star all around. I love this place.
Excellent Service and Excellent Food. Very impressive.
