“A very special restaurant!”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

Sentimental, old style, "Piano Bar" litterally. Reservations suggested if you are coming. Sign says open at 4 PM and we were 4:45 or so, not serving until 5 .. and I mean after 5 told to sit in 1st booth, a second voice thankfully said to sit anywhere you want ... no cocktail while waitng 8 servers around but not ours, nice fire. no service until 5 ...we were thirsty! The best Manhttan in Columbus finally arrived! Three dining areas main room, atrium space, and another dining area secluded and quiet, when warm you can sit outside. Many items to choose from, appetizers, sides, steaks galore, porterhouse, tenderloin, N.Y. strip, big, small, prime rib, a veal porterhouse, ribs, chicken picatta, and more ...oh yes many specials too. My husband picked Salmon, broccolli and was pleased. I chose the Prime Rib 10oz specia,l perfect size $18.95.with salad n steamed tender brussel sprouts. The chef makes the bread daily and it was delightful. Our server suggested that if we would like a special veal or any meal to call 3-4 days ahead and let the chef know and he will order accordingly. I thought that was very nice, sadly very $$$$

“Excellent food at a price!”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

Went there on Christmas Eve. The food was excellent and the service was quite good considering that they were packed. It was quite noisy and some of the patrons decided to "help" the pianist entertain--bad mistake! I should have brought some earplugs!

“A real throw back to the 60's (except the prices)”
Reviewed 20 January 2012

Great steaks! Bring your appetite and your wallet. The decor hasn't changed in forever and the Rat Pack would fit right in!

“My Favorite Steakhouse”
Reviewed 16 January 2012

My friends and I frequent this place because it's up the street from one of their houses but we eat there for more than convenience. The food is terrific! I love the crabmeat cocktail, oyster rockefeller, and the roasted asparagus with hollandaise. Every cut of meat or kind of seafood I have had there has been top notch. Soooo good. The drinks are also strong. It is a great place for a date night. The ambience feels intimate.I will continue to visit.
