"We went after an afternoon Jazz session at the Southern. Very convenient to that theater as well as the Ohio and the Palace. Very eclectic theme and the menu is varied but wonderful. Every meal we have hade has been excellent and it is always a major decision to figure out what to have on this visit. I had the duck and my wife had the pasta. Both were great and we will have them again. This has become our go to place any time we are downtown."

"If you're into small plates (tapas), this is a great place to dine on appetizers. My date and I shared the cheese plate, brussell sprouts, and ravioli... plus a few glasses of wine and dessert. We left full and satisfied. It was absolutely fantastic! ....awesome decor of urban sparkly! loved the chandeliers over every table!"

"We recently found this place and we love it! The food, service and music deliver an experience much like a small intimate Chicago spot. The decor and vibe transport you to somewhere other than downtown Columbus for sure! We highly recommend it for a meet up with friends or a date night drink or dinner. LOVE!"

"My experience last Friday was really great and our seating was awesome; However it appeared they were alittle short staff as the host was running to get cars and seating people. I mean I'm all for TEAM Work but it also made for a crowded entrance. Good was delicious as always."

"Service!!! I called at the last minute to add a person to my reservation and they weren't able to accommodate. I received a call back 5 minutes later to say they had. Never has that happened! We had a great time. Our waiter Matthew was great and we loved the bartender. Yes!!!"

"First time visit to De Novo for Restaurant Week. Our food was good -- I had the scallops and my husband had the filet. Service was also good. Loved the kind of eclectic decor!
We were seated towards the back of the restaurant, which was great for a nice dinner and conversation. Only disappointment was that, being jazz and blues fans, we had hoped to also take in the live entertainment, but the front/bar area was full when we finished dinner. Will know to request seating in the front next time, so we can enjoy the entertainment.

"We came for the music and loved the food as well.Our waiter was super friendly and knew how to make you happy. Unfortunately it was restaurant week and the place was jammed. The restaurant finally made good on our reservation and gave us a seat in the main dining room. the back room does not have the live music piped in but muzak, which we found strange."

"The food was good and they had a live band when we went. Although it was very crowded and it took awhile for us to be seated, even with a reservation. It was a nice new place to try out."
