"I would like to inform you about our visit yesterday, Sunday April 17th 2016, to the restaurant (Oak Room) at the Granville Inn. We made the reservation for 3 adults well in advance for 12:30, hoping to offer our guest from overseas an enjoyable meal in a charming environment. We had read in the newspaper how the Inn had been restored by the university and expected a high standard of food and service.
After being seated promptly we received menus and were ready to order soon thereafter. When we were served with water we asked for a wine list, which took the waitress 10 minutes to bring. Ten minutes later she showed up and we ordered our bottle of wine. At this point she was not interested in getting our food order. After 10 minutes we called her over to ask what had happened to our wine order, to be informed that the bartender was attending another party, but that she would get the wine herself. In the meantime our water glasses were refilled, but the waitress nearly doused our guest in the process, leaving a spill on the table and the floor, which was not cleaned up. In the end, having been seated for 40 minutes, still with no wineglasses or wine in sight, not even getting close to ordering our food, we decided to leave. As we were getting up the surrounding guests commented sympathetically- obviously they were enduring the same poor service even though the restaurant was not filled to capacity. For us this is unacceptable poor service, not worth the trip from Columbus, and we cannot recommend your restaurant to anybody.

"The quality of food was extremely good and fit the feel for the room, no French fries here. The wait staff was excellent, especially Edgar, who provided entertainment at no extra charge and would return for him and the food. Overall a really great time.
The duck and steak were excellent and presentation great. We were able to enjoy our meal and company without a lot of noise and being annoyed by the teeny boppers on their phones, a very grown up place to be.
We will come back."

"The scallops were nothing I would recommend , bad combination . Sounded great on the menu , searched for the good stuff ? Four scallops , some kind of frozen (?)diced potatoes and very little asparagus . The sauce was more suited to a beef or game dish . I was disappointed to say the least ! Not to mention the price , $30.00 . I guess ambiance has a price ."

"I admit that I'm a rather picky patron. But I can't come up with a single complaint about our meal at the Granville Inn on 3/3. We were a party of 4 and ordered 2 appetizers, 4 different dinners, and 4 different desserts. Everyone very much enjoyed every part of the meal. I didn't see the bill and that often has an influence on my overall impression (value) of the evening, but it was a splendid meal and I can estimate the cost and still believe it to be a splendid meal."

"This was our first visit to the newly remodeled Granville Inn. Nicely done, especially with the switching of the formal dining room and the bar area. We were seated in the more formal Oak Room, and enjoyed its warm feel and comfortable seating. The meal was excellent, and was clearly a reflection of the Chef's experience and background in some of Central Ohio's finest restaurants. Try the French Onion Soup, the Beet Salad, and the Scallops or Lamb. All prepared to perfection. What would have been a great dining experience was made even better by our server, Wendy. She was most pleasant and knows her craft well. We will be asking for her when we return in the near future. We are also looking forward to trying the less formal bar area, which really seemed to be a friendly and lively place. Congratulations to the entire staff for providing us with a memorable evening."

"We made reservations for the Granville Inn for Valentine's Day, which this year fell on a Sunday. Many restaurants are not open on Sundays, so we were pleased we were able to book reservations at 6:00 a couple weeks in advance for the Inn, our first time since their renovation and takeover by Denison University. We were pleased with the changes, which made the restaurant operation flow while retaining the original ambience and style. The bar was moved on the other side of the wall partition from the formerly small less formal area into the previously large, main area, and between the two, giving expanded more formal dining in the old bar area, and allowing access to the bar from the former larger area. Wait staff was attentive and personable. They had a great menu with diverse items, but all a la carte. My scallops were perfectly cooked and ample in size. The lobster bisque was good, but, as often happens, one was hard pressed to find any lobster. There could have been more choices for dessert. Wine and beer selections were adequate. We were surprised that by 8:00 the crowd was thinning. The Inn continues to have parking space issues, as all the spaces were full when we arrived a few minutes early. We were able to park nearby on the street, however. All-in-all, we were very pleased with the new Granville Inn and will return."

"We visited for Sunday brunch on our anniversary and everything was excellent. Each part of the meal from the pot of French Lemon Cream tea to the Rice Pudding for dessert was delicious! This chef is wonderful. We will definitely come back and have already spread the word!!!"

"The dining room was nice, with an Ivy League feel, but it was small, and not very private for a couple. We went there for lunch, but the menu was not the same as the menu link I was given in my confirmation email. - I guess that was the dinner menu. So we were dissappointed from the start. - The food was nothing special. It was an older clientele, one particularly rude, telling her waitress that the bartender wasn't making her Bloody Mary(s) fast enough. The dress code said "smart casual", but there were customers in jeans and sweatshirts. Overall - a disappointment."
