M Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

I love M. It's always a pleasant experience. On this visit, the bartender made a special drink/cocktail for me that was very yummy. I enjoyed a meal from the restaurant week prix fixe menu; it, too, was very tasty. I would definitely recommend M.

This was our first visit back to M in a long time and we were not disappointed. We made the reservation during Restaurant Week and wanted to enjoy the prix fixe menu selections for just that week. We were not disappointed. We were sat promptly at our reservation time and the wait staff couldn't have been more affable. We made our selections and chatted while awaiting the first course. The waitstaff was top notch, so notable as to wonder if they or their trainer was a graduate of an esteemed French culinary school - where they are eager to please and revel in the beauty of food and the way it should be served. Our glasses were never empty and as we thanked them for their attentiveness, they whispered "my pleasure!" with sincerity. The three courses were prepared with obvious skill and were delectable. My only complaint is that since this was a prix fixe menu, I found our portions to be smaller than those dinners around us who were ordering off of the standard menu. But the portions were in line with the price. The wine menu was above average with bottles that ranged from the moderate to the extravagant with many of good vintage years. I only wished more of those elite wines were available by the glass rather than the bottle. Overall our experience was fantastic. I need to place M back on my list of places to visit for more than just special occasions and restaurant week.

This was the first time I had bad service. I will think twice about going there. We were sat without menus for all 5 of us for the longest time. We were never asked our drink orders until I finally said we were ready to order. The drink menu was left on our table the whole night. I was supposed to have me dessert to go after the check. They brought it out. I told them to keep it cold as there was icecream. They did not!!! Also, I had to ask for it again.

We left the choice of dishes all up to the chef for surprise menu and it was delightful.

I recommend this place for special occasions to anyone

Scene and overall ambiance is very dated. Not the same restaurant it was years ago. Sea Bass dish lacked flavor, Scallops were okay, but the puree and sauce was terrible. Ahi Poke appetizer was a bright spot. Very good wine list.

M is truly one of the best restaurants in Columbus. Everything on the menu is excellent, the wine list is superb, and the atmosphere is perfect. For a very upscale restaurant, the prices are actually very fair. I would highly recommend M.

Loved the food and the service!! The restaurant just seems worn and old. The chairs were beat up. The sheer curtains had tears and snags in them. There were flys in the bottom of the window sill. The bathrooms, despite the attempt to fancy them up, just seem like the bathrooms at my children's school. We truly loved the food and our waiter!! We just felt for the price you pay that the atmosphere and overall appearance of the restaurant weren't up to par. Because of that we probably won't be back or recommend it to our friends.

The food at M is quite innovative and very well done. Delicious. The only set back for me was the service. If one is to go out and enjoy a night of good food and good wine, you need to get the wine in within 5 minutes after being ordered. Anything longer than that for a fine dining restaurant is just not up for it. So as long as you're a patient diner and looking for really good food, this is the place. But if you have little patience for that, then go to Lindey's so as to avoid a frustrating experience. They took 15 minutes to get our sparkling water and forgot all about the wine order.

This was by far one of the best dining experiences we have ever had! The drinks were world class (black orchid!), the sushi was unique and fresh, the bread was to die for (we ate two loaves...oops), the strawberry salad was refreshing, and the entrees made the evening. We decided to look at the desert menu and wish we could have had it all! The coffee and donuts was a perfect end to the evening. Thank you, M for an amazing date night full of ambiance and charm.

We celebrated my husband's birthday with the our family and had a wonderful time. It was beautiful and the food delicious. Service was impeccable. Perfect place for a special occasion because of the things mentioned above

My girlfriend and I were out for a night on the town and chose M for our dinner. So glad that we did because it was phenomenal. She had the chicken which was juicy and flavorful and I had lamb which was cooked perfectly and the seasoning was right on. I would recommend M to anyone for any occasion but especially of you are looking for a wow factor! Thanks to the M team for such a great dining experience!

This was our first time to M and we choose it due to the $50 off if you spent $150 exclusive offer I received via email and because we could eat outside with a view! I am always looking for new places to try and we were celebrating Fathers Day and Birthday. We enjoyed the ambience and view outside as we dined on the patio. The service we received was superb and the food was delicious. There was something on the menu for everyone and my daughter (20 yrs.) is a vegetarian and they actually had a special menu for her. My only call out is I still found it to be a little pricey even with the $50 discount. Definitely special occasion criteria with 2 teenagers in tow!
At these prices I was hoping they would give my husband a free desert for his birthday like they do at all the other Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. Regardless, I still highly recommend M!

Three of us dining and all had excellent meals. They nicely accommodated a vegetarian in our group. Service was impeccable and environment very relaxing and quiet. I actually prefer the Ocean Club dining experience except for the excessive noise level there. M is also rather pricey.
Our bill for 3 people (with only two drinks total) came to $242.

The restaurant décor was very nice. We were greeted immediately by the hostess who told us it would be a few minutes before we could be seated. We went to the bar to grab a drink. The bartender was friendly and handed us a cocktail menu. We knew what we wanted to order however the bartender did not come by to take our order. After a few minutes we were ready to be sat. Once seated, we were greeted by our server whose appearance was on spot and she was very friendly. She took our drink order and returned with our drinks in a timely manner. Once we ordered the salad and appetizer came on fairly quickly. Our entree's on the other hand took an hour and 5 minutes from the time we sat down. We ordered fairly quickly and ate our salad and appetizers very quickly as well. I asked our server what was taking so long, and she told us that they had a large party. Our food came out shortly after and the food was just average. I had a tuna sushi roll which did not hold together very well. I was a little disappointed. My husband had the veal which was good but not worth the cost and wait. The manager came over as we were finishing our meals and seemed concerned that we were asking about the wait. He offered us dessert and after dinner drinks, typical for when a guest complains. Overall the service was good, however the food and timing was not. Unfortunately we will not be returning. Both my husband and I have worked in the service industry for years so our expectations were high. Maybe our expectations were too high for this experience.

Our experience at M was good from entering the front door early (16 mins), to meeting Trevor our server to the champagne he recommended to the tasty bread and butter appetizer to the sumptuous Veal Migon. One tiny regret is not having another sliver of bread to capture the last drop of gravy that surrounded the veal. Dessert was the pecan cheesecake topped with vanilla ice cream. Very memorable for our anniversary dinner.

The food was outstanding! We tried the Surf and Turf, the carpaccio on top of a tempura shrimp roll added a nice twist, the salmon, ahi tuna, asparagus and lobster mashed potatoes were lovely as well, great flavor profile and cooked perfectly as well. For dessert our server recommended the coffee and donuts which we also enjoyed very much, not too complicated- very warm beignets, crunchy on the outside, perfectly soft on the inside with a chocolate sauce, a delightful strawberry sauce and my favorite- frozen espresso. Overall we were very impressed and would definitely return. There is also a lovely lighted patio out back.

The food was great. The steak in a bowl, was delicious. The service however, was rather disappointing. There were two private events, and so our meal ended up taking over two and a half hours. Normally I wouldn't mind, but we had a ten month old with us, and expressed that we were somewhat in a hurry (meaning we reasonably wanted our meal to take less than two hours).
