Yet another perfectly exquisite evening at the Refectory!
Monday night dining service wasn't as glamorous as I'd hoped for. Out of caviar.
Highly recommend if you are looking for an excellent dinning experience !
The food is excellent. The service couldn't be better. The wine list can't be matched anywhere in Ohio. Just magnificent.
I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough. Each course was delicious, the ambiance was perfect, and service was exquisite.
Unbelievable attention to detail and care from all staff across every board. If you are looking for a premier dining experience, look no further. I would recommend the live music events as they are very unique and tastefully top off the atmosphere of The Refectory.
I went to this restaurant to celebrate my fiance's anniversary and I couldn't be happier with the service and the food we received. The waitress was extraordinary and the food was absolutely divine. It Is definitely a place I will be bragging about for months to come. I definitely recommend this to anybody that wants to have a nice restaurant to go to for a special occasion.
A wonderful dining experience. Delicious food, wonderful atmosphere, personalized service. Highly recommend The Refectory.
Great meal as always. Service was good, but not perfect as usual (forgot coffee with dessert and I asked about the whiskey in the Manhattan and he didn’t get back to me). Minor complaints.
Excellent service, excellent food. We always love coming back!
Attractive place great service, best desserts ANYWHERE,
Great! You will like it!
Celebrating life with my family! Great environment and fantstic service! Worthwhile
We had a wonderful meal and great service! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary.
Beautiful and classy restaurant where everything is done right. Have always loved this place and I am glad it survives. It is one of the crown jewels of Columbus.
Always a great place to dine. 5 star restaurant great atmosphere "......................."
Columbus has a variety of top notch restaurants, steak houses, and tremendous Italian offerings, but the Refectory remains the Gold standard for others to hope for. The atmosphere is still unique, the food incredibly good, and the creative presentations by chef Richard unequaled in the Midwest. I highly recommend them for any great dining occasion!
Waitress Jamie was amazing! She was helpful and responsive.
We totally enjoyed the relaxed pace of dining and the pleasant, courteous staff and excellent choices of food. We highly recommended this dining experience.
The server was very nice and help us with all the special request we made during the reservation. It’s a great place for celebrating special days.
Limited menu allows them to focus on excellent preparation. Don't miss hor d'oeuvres gravlax or escargot. What was once a very stuffy place (we've dined here for many years) is now quite welcoming.
My wife and I had a wonderful time! The food, service and ambiance were perfect!
My friend and I have dinner frequently in the Columbus area and I decided that we should experience French cuisine. We thoroughly enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the food. Suggested wine pairing was a nice added touch. Would definitely recommend this restaurant to friends. The mussel soup was absolutely AMAZING!!!
Best restaurant in Columbus!!Great food, great service, and quiet!Never rushed. Whole filet of sole to share for 2!!!!
Incredible spot. Very authentic in the French cuisine and wine list. There's also something to be said when you can have an open conversation and it isn't too crowded and you're able to hear each other talk. Enjoyed this place very much and we will be back.
My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and had the pleasure of dining at The Refectory. We were seated quickly and loved the Happy Anniversary note on our table.
The service as always was amazing. And, the food was incredible.
Huge thank you to The Refectory team for making this a night to remember.
By far the most expensive dinner I have had. That being said, it was WELL worth every dollar! Be sure to dress your best and have plenty of time to enjoy your delicious meal! The service was friendly and very knowledgeable of all the items on the menu. The steak was *perfect* and drinks were amazing! We went for our 1 year anniversary, and first time for us both. We were not disappointed and hope to return!
Columbus's "go to" restaurant for the finest food and service. Gave 5 stars only because 6 wasn't available.
The best dining experience in central Ohio on all counts!
My husband and I enjoy going to the Refrectory because of the wonderful cuisine, wine list and staff. We are always greeted with a warm welcome. This is our favorite restaurant in Columbus.
We love the Refectory! Every experience has been absolutely perfect. The staff is wonderful, the ambiance is unique, and the food is beyond compare. We took my parents there and they still say that this was the best experience they have ever had in any restaurant (and they are world travelers). You have to, have to, have to go here!
By far the best and most unique restaurant experience I have had in Columbus, OH. All of the staff were very attentive to the needs of their patrons. The chef is very creative with all the dining options, clearly a master of his craft. This restaurant is deserving of all of their accolades.
This was our 50th anniversary and the Refectory did a fabulous job of making it memorable without being intrusive. The welcome and service was exceptional. We were a little early for our reservation, but they were ready for us and had a perfect quiet table all set for us.
Food was exceptional and the service pace unrushed, and perfectly timed. Portions were plentiful and after the entree we didn’t order desert, but they brought us a small desert sample with candles to finish off the evening with a very nice 20 year old tawny port.
We’ll be back.
Excellent food and service. This has to be Columbus's premier restaurant.
Food was amazing!
Do have the tasting menu, it is fabulous!!!
The Refectory Bistro never disappoints! Truly a refined dining experience underpinned by classic French culinary expertise and a world class wine list.
My girlfriend and I tried this place and it is superb
