M Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
I have gone to M quite a few times with good results but this past weekend it was awful. We had a reservation at 7:15 and arrived promptly. The waitress took our salad and drink order then that was delivered. I looked at my watch and it's 7:55 and we haven't even ordered! I had to ask the guy giving me a refill to find our server because she never came back. Then the food is finally served and it's decent to good. The waitress doesn't check back on how's the food or provide any beverage refills after it's served. From there we are finished for 10 minutes and AGAIN no waitress. So I left $160 bucks on the table and left. I've never had to do that ever at a restaurant but we wanted to leave. I'm not sure if we were treated poorly since we are mid to late 20's? Either way I dine at better restaurants more frequently than anybody else at M that night and I will not be back. It's also the second time in a few weeks I have had horrendous service at a Cameron Mitchell place which is rare. (other time was at Hudson29). I can't even count 2 negative experiences at his restaurants over the last 15 years.
By far one of the best places I have ever eaten. My wife and I have one weekend per year and we go away to different big cities and go to a five star restaurant during that time as well. This was our place this year and we loved the round booth and the romantic setting.
Amazing food and service everytime I eat here. I've done dates, happy hour, group dinners, inside and outside seating. The service is always top notch, polite, and helpful. The food is limited but consistent and delicious. The cocktail list is my favorite but the wine list is pretty impressive. The atmosphere is romantic overall I love this place. Its my go to for special occasions because you know everything is going to be amazing.
Seriously, one on the top 100 restaurants in the country. I travel to the West Coast regularly and this restaurant is as good as it gets. Creative cuisine, superb service and stellar ambiance. The hallmark of outstanding restaurants is consistency and signature items. I had not been here in several years and the dining experience is as good as ever. I had the lamb chops and the poke ... I am already craving them again. The little touches, like giving you a black napkin or constantly refilling your side of ice without even having to ask, is effortless service that's found in only a few establishments. Not sure Columbus recognizes the level of cuisine that M consistently hits. I do and I appreciate it. A must if you're living in or visiting Columbus!
My o my! The food was excellent, especially the king crab on the starter/appetizer menu. The restaurant paid attention to my requests made in the comments section when scheduling through open table and that meant a great deal. The service was fantastic and the overall experience wonderful. I highly recommend M!
While the shrimp appetizer was underwhelming, the rest of our meal was fantastic. I had the Steak In A Bowl, my husband had the NY Strip and we shared a side of Lobster Mashed Potatoes. Our drinks were great as well (Wine & Vanilla Old Fashioned). I would recommend for a special occasion - all in (with tip) we spent $200.
I think I might still prefer The Avenue over M, though.
My partner and I have lived in Los Angeles, Boston and Atlanta, and we can be described as foodies. While M certainly lives up to its' reputation for great food, it has lost a bit of the luster it had since our last visit. The service was great as always (ask for Linda) and the food was on par with that of any big-city restaurant (try the Ahi Tuna), but the noise level was uncomfortably loud, the tables were too close for any kind of romantic dining experience, and the wine prices were needlessly high. While M remains a good choice for high end dining in Columbus, there is a restaurant on Bethel Road also offers great food and service with a little quieter, more genteel dining experience.
We had heard a great deal and this place did not disappoint. The staff knew just when to be attentive and when to back off.
good cocktail list
Unique and awesome food.
A little pricey, but well worth it
Excellent and unique deserts and wonderful coffee
And finally, I was impressed to find a US restaurant featuring a Scotland Islay Gin called The Botanist. Awesome. Best gin ever.
Everything was spectacular! Our server was so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious. My better half had the scallops and I had the NY strip plus we split the mac and cheese. Each dish was excellently prepared and delicious. The black orchid cocktail is a must have and if you like old fashioned or are just starting to get in to whiskey then their vanilla old fashioned is perfect for you. We were celebrating our engagement and they brought out our dessert with a candle, small cake, and small chocolate that said "Congratulations ". Our waitress Brittany seemed generally happy to give it to us which made it that much sweeter. All in all a great place and probably my favorite of his many restaurants around town
We know M, and know that it has outstanding food and service, but this time our waitress was exceptional! She was so warm and welcoming! Our 8-yr old wanted to have a special meal for an academic accomplishment, and she made him feel very special! We had a great time!
Started with happy hour at the bar, which was great food, prices and atmosphere. It was a special occasion and they sat us at a great table overlooking a beautiful restaurant. Unfortunately, the service and the 45 minutes we waited for food left a damper on an otherwise great evening.
I celebrated my 45th birthday with family and friends at the M this past weekend. I'm so grateful we chose the M. I had the best celebration there with great food, drinks personable staff, management and the restaurant is beautiful. Thank you so very much for making my night wonderful. Robyn Taylor
Had a wonderful birthday dinner. Staff is so friendly and attentive. Food is expensive, but worth it! They had a kids menu, which was a nice surprise for the little one. Didn't get a private room with a party of 7, but they partitioned table off with curtains.
We enjoyed our meal and the service was good. It was a little bit more noisy then what we prefer and we also thought it was pretty modern, which isn't really our taste but probably you would love it if it was yourst. Overall we were not disappointed and would recommend it to a friend.
The ambiance was nice and the spectacular view through their floor to ceiling windows added to the overall experience. The food and service were good, but the service could have been a bit more 'personal'. It was a very busy night and it was apparent, at times, that our server's focus was elsewhere. However, overall good night. I would definitely go back and give it another try.
Yes, the good was great. For me, tho, dining tends to be more about the experience overall. The service from our waiter was simply the best formal dining service I have ever enjoyed. He was very engaging, and listened to what we were looking for, and offered great discriptions of the food offerings, and great wine pairings, based in the food we were ordering. This was the first time in many years that I returned to M. I assure you, based solely on the time and attention we received from our waiter, that I will be back.
Came to M for restaurant week. We had an 8:15 reservation but we're not seated until 9. However, the staff was amazing and set us up with a complimentary appetizer. Our meals were quick to come out and Everything was AMAZING. Overall had a lovely experience and would recommend to anyone as one of the best places in town!
