I went to G. Michael's with my fiancé for Valentine's dinner. We have eaten at our fair share of fine dining establishments in Columbus. The ambiance is good everywhere, but the food can sometimes be lacking. Our experience at G. Michael's was spectacular. Our server, David, was attentive, but let us enjoy our romantic evening. We ordered the special appetizer,... More

Really bad dining experience, worst I've had in a very long time. Rude customer service and not worth the price.

We had a fine dining experience a G Michael's yesterday. The ambience is excellent and the food was even better. I had the trout which was wonderfully prepared melting in your mouth with a buttery texture and taste. The root vegetables were an excellent balance to accompany the rather large portion of fish. The first course and the dessert were... More

G Michael's Bistro provided the perfect backdrop for the family Christmas dinner. The environment was festive, the food was very good & the service was excellent. Definitely a nice addition to the neighborhood.

The restaurant is tucked into the beautiful German Village neighborhood. Small restaurant with great customer service. Must try while visiting is the bacon tomato soup and the Buttermilk Fried chicken!!! Be careful on ordering extras because the friend who was with us ordered an extra biscuit and it cost him $5 for 1!

Charming place in German Village. Brick decor. Perfect for dates & couples. Very flavorful menu. Bacon Tomato Soup & Gerber Fried Chicken highly recommended. Would have been 5 star if not for a tad pricey for Columbus.

This is just my favorite dining experience in Columbus. After moving to Charleston in August, I returned to hear my wife sing her last Holiday Pops. We had dinner between the performances with dear friends. I can better appreciate the southern influence in David's culinary skill. For starters, we had a dozen oysters - could truly taste and utterly enjoy... More

Celebrating a special occasion last evening we tried this venue located in a charming part of the City. Upon entering we saw the quaint bar area and told the Host at the Stand we would like to get a drink before our dinner reservation. I am a top reviewer and in all the places all over the world I have... More

This is a great place to meet friends and enjoy cocktails and a lovely meal. Service was outstanding! Most of our food choices were also outstanding, particularly the calamari and the Brussels sprouts appetizers. Both were incredibly flavorful and generous enough for sharing. The roasted cauliflower salad was also delicious. For the entrees, the braised lamb neck served over potatoes... More

Four of us enjoyed dinner here on a Monday night. We each had a small plate at happy hour along with wine and each couple shared a fixed price dinner. We enjoyed the gumbo and shrimp and grits small plates. The pork chop and trout dinners were good and the Cream brûlée for dessert was excellent. The waitress was very... More
