While in town for business a few of my colleagues and myself decided on dinner here one night. The service was terrific and the food was amazing. I had the lamb which was delicious! Would definitely recommend!

In town for the AAA Great Vacations Expo and after a 12 hour day the walk across the street to Martini was like an oasis. Greeted with smiles from the entire staff, and this was at 7:30pm. Angie, our server was like speaking to one of Columbus's best travel guides. Besides helping us the menu, we wanted one of everything,... More

We stopped into this spot just for a drink and after seeing the meals served decided to stay. The lamb pappardelle was the best I have had anywhere. Nice chunks of lamb in a fragrant hearty sauce made it perfect for a cold evening. And the pasta was perfectly cooked al dente. We just ate at the bar and the... More

This was our first time to Martini Modern Italian, we had reservations for 7pm on a Friday, I was surprised it wasn't busier than it was when we arrived, especially since we were there during Columbus Restaurant Week. We sat at the bar for a glass of wine before going to our table. The bartender who helped us was very... More

I can't rave enough about this restaurant...it is consistently great, and our family likes to celebrate family events here, because the seating is so conducive to larger parties. The bar scene is very active as the restaurant sits at the entrance of the Short North, and across the street from the Convention Center. Whether it's a Monday or weekend, there... More

I went here with a co-worker after work as it was a short walk from the Nationwide Boulevard area. Never really have an issue getting a table at the bar and sat down and were approached immediately. The server staff was very friendly and were definitely "taken care of" during meal with prompt attention, brief conversation, and they allowed us... More

Been to Martini's a couple of times, typically later on a weekday evening (ie: after 7p). Usually when we get there the place is pretty busy, but then clears out shortly afterwards. Reservations are recommended as this place is fairly busy. The bar area is great and both times I was in, there was large container of vodka with pineapple.... More

It is difficult to find the perfect spot to please 50+ family members. Martini's provided us with an exceptional experience from the planning with Marta, the incredible service team, super accommodating chef and delicious food. Special shout out to Amanda!

A friend took me to Martini during my recent visit to Columbus and advertised it as "an Italian place". So, my expectations were like "some pasta and some pizza" - far from what I was about to experience: perfect high-class Italian fine dining! The restaurant is located in Short North (were you can find a lot of dining options). It's... More

The evening did not start off very well. Reservation was for 7:45 but didn't get seated until 8:10. The manager (Alexis) came to us while we were waiting and apologized for the table not being ready. She offered complimentary appetizers (2). Once we were seated (party of 6), our waitress took our drink orders. All I can say is there... More
