We normally don't dine at the high end restaurants, but received a $150 gift card to S&W.
S&W is located at Easton near Nordstroms. It is a great location and they have valet parking. We prefer to park in a garage or surface lot since you have to drive through a lot of Easton to get to S&W. This is slow going due to all the pedestrian traffic.
The restaurant is very elegant and well appointed, which you would expect from a high end restaurant. We dined on the patio the other night and it was perfect. The bathroom are clean and well done, but dimly lit.
The service was excellent. The wait staff are seasoned professionals and clearly stand apart from the typical 20 something you get at your local eatery. As stated before we don't normally dine at fancy places like this. One of the reasons is because the wait staff can be condescending and a boorish. Not the case at S&W Columbus.
The Food was good to excellent. If one considers quality irrespective of cost, the quality is certainly top notch, but once you factor in the cost, I have to lower the overall quality score. The main reason for the drop is that I can get comparable quality food at other restaurants for much less. The bread the serve with the meal is awesome. Freshly baked with just enough butter to sweeten it up and then they sprinkle a little salt on top. Almost tastes like a hot pretzel from the fair.
We split a 21oz NY strip steak and side of hash browns. We each got a salad, and one piece of cake for dessert. The total bill was just north of $100 before tip.
Overall we had a very pleasant experience at S&W Columbus. We will be going back since we still have $45 left on our gift card. Once that gift card is consumed we will most likely not return. Not because we did not enjoy the atmosphere, food, or service, but mainly because when all is considered, we can get a comparable meal at other restaurants and keep a lot more cash in the pocket.
