M Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
we've been to M a number of times for anniversary. My wife's meal, shrimp tempura and then the scallops was great. I ordered the foie and the lamb. In both cases, in my view, the sauce over powered the focus of the plate and was imbalanced which for $40+ for an item is a large part of what you are paying for. I was disappointed in both to be honest. The Lamb itself was super, but the 'sauce', treatment was, again overpowering. I frankly think the venue itself is getting old, dated, in need of a real major overhaul. But, having said this, I still think M is one of the best restaurants in Columbus.
Music was too loud. Bad mix. Not sophisticated. Uneven flow. No theme. Need to replace whoever is in charge of the music. They don't understand the M brand.
Cappuccinos had too much foam. Left a lot to be desired.
Marquee and Black Orchid cocktails were terrific.
Food was excellent.
Our server Anita was awesome!
The food was excellent, as always. The front room of the restaurant was overcrowded. (They have too many tables installed for the size of the room.) There is also a chilly draft that gusts every time the front glass door opens, which is unpleasant. I would recommend sitting in the back, if at all possible.
Our server was lovely, and I think she sensed that the environment was not up to par, so she generously supplemented our "doggie bag." We will be back, but we will ask for a table in a different section of the restaurant. "M" is a fine restaurant that we usually reserve for special occasions, so this particular experience was disappointing. I am hopeful that the management can adjust the front room table layout and install a draft shield. Although delicious food is important, the overall ambience of fine dining influences the experience.
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.
