The food is awesome, very creative combinations, they may sound odd when reading the description, but everything goes together so well. The atmosphere is wonderful, the wait staff impeccable.

“Perfect end to the day!”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

First visit back to G. Michael's in a couple years and glad I went back. Made reservations same day but don't think we needed them as it was not as busy as the last few times we tried to get in. Staff was excellent and friendly and the menu changed a bit so I was glad to return. Nice group of specials for the night and the menu has something for everyone. Started with the grilled romaine and that was delicious while my friend had Bibb Lettuce Nicoise and enjoyed that as well. For our entree they had the fish special and just raved about it while I had the Mixed Trio, perfect! We even splurged on desert with a Lemon Tart and the Dark Chocolate Tart with berries, both very good and a great way to end the meal. We definitely will be back.

This was the highlight of restaurants on this trip. The service was amazing. The food was top of the line. I loved the presentation of the food and the taste. It is pricy, but very much worth it.

“Great Place”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

One of our favorites restaurants in Columbus; creative, well prepared entrees, excellent wait staff, nice atmosphere, drinks sometimes a little weak, so ask for the first to be like the second.
