M Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

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.

Our favorite restaurant ever! We came to celebrate the purchase of our new home. The food and drinks as always were fantastic. The service was good but has been much better in the past.

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.
Great Birthday Celebration
I took my wife here for her birthday. We've been before, and it is a favorite of hers. We've never been disappointed. The service was excellent, and the food was amazing. The birthday treat was an added bonus.

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. Thank you!
The view, the ambience, the live jazz band, the location,...very well done!

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).

We have never had a bad experience at a Cameron Mitchell restaurant, but M is outstanding even in that rare company because of the fine view, ambience, food and service. We highly recommend M.

Wonderful coursing as we never felt rushed. Excellent wine list and Josh's service was extraordinary.

We have been to M many times before and, except for one previous occasion, we were always very satisfied. This time, we were not disappointed either; most of what we eat, was excellent. However, I have to bring up the sushi issue. I ordered the ahi tuna sushi as an appetizer. I got rolls of rice filled with vegetables and topped with a paper thin transparent slice of tuna less than a square inch in size. I believe most people eat sushi for the fish, which is complemented by the nice sushi rice. Here, I could not even taste the tuna when I bit into the sushi. Finally, I collected all the paper thin pieces of tuna, eat them and left the rice on the plate. I should have sent it back. Our waitress was a very nice young lady but she was obviously a novice. Anyway, if you want to eat sushi at M, first make sure that you will get some seafood with it as well, not only the rice.

I love M. Don't get there often but stopped by prior to a show last week at the Palace. They have fabulous cocktails. I had the vanilla Manhattan, delicious. Had one of their "known for" dishes, the veal tenderloin and cheeks (which I had never had and I love veal) and it was fantastic, melt in your mouth tender and great depth of flavors. My husband had the steak in a bowl which he thoroughly enjoyed. Don't skip the truffled mac and cheese, just plain yum. The biggest criticism I have is trying to figure out what to pick, there are just too many excellent options. I guess that's how they keep you coming back.

The Poke was outstanding. I had the veal and veal cheek, it was good but not the best I've ever had. My dining companion had the steak in a bowl. They enjoyed their meal. However, the quality just didn't seem to be up to par with the prices.The drinks while expensive, (we ordered spiced rum and Diet Coke. ) They only had diet Pepsi and that is all we tasted. We ended up asking for another rum straight up just to add to our drinks.
Returned after 5 year gap
It has been about 5 years since my wife and I ate here last. It was such a memorable time that we were so excited to give M another try. This time it was about on par with the service that you would expect from the Pearl, which is to say alright but not quite up to a fine dining level. The sushi was so-so but we did get a lot of sashimi for the price. I do understand that this isn't a sushi restaurant but the food shouldn't be on the menu if it isn't to be on par with the fuagra, or steak dishes. The dish we were most excited about was the truffle mac & cheese. This was phenomenal the last time but not so this time. It was Mother's day but we were there before the rush. If this was our first experience we wouldn't be going back but I think that this was just an off day for M and will be giving it another go.

Outstanding Mother's Day brunch. Guaranteed excellent food. Great service.
Decent, but wine gouging hurt experience
Food was good, service a bit slow, but not terrible. Waitress not overly attentive. Bad thing was wine at triple retail, I don't mind double, but when charging triple, you are gouging.
I always look forward to dining at M
Our daughter's birthday and of course she chose M - it is a special place to dine in Columbus and we choose it often for such occasions. Very consistent with great preparations and beautiful surroundings - we had a lovely evening and always recommend "Steak in a Bowl" to our friends who have not tried it yet. Yum.
So-so visit this time ...
Arrived 30 mins early for reservation. Bar had seats to enjoy a cocktail pre-flight which we planned on. Seated 5 mins after sitting at bar (uhh, why did i arrive early?). Probably should tell them next time: dont bother me until my reservation time. Ordered app. App came timely, and delicious as usual. Another server came to take our dinner order, no worry. Our server was running around. But drink refills and dinner were wayy to long in between. Another app came (even thou we didnt order it-expeditor was surprised) ... Dinner was ok when it arrived thou. Probably just chalk it up to bad night ... Still a great place.

Beautiful place. Great scenery and service however the food was not worth the price tag. $112 for 2 people and I have had much better food for a fraction of the cost. We were rather disappointed to say the least. WAY too heavy on the amount of salt used. My wifes was very salty as well and she didn't get the same thing as I did. I have no problems dropping some good cash on a great meal just not here anymore and its a shame because it was a lovely place. I just couldn't drink enough water to quench my thirst after that dinner.

We enjoyed our first trip to M. We have eaten many times at the other Cameron Mitchell restaurants and have never been disappointed
Not a bad place, but for the price, I wasn't impressed. Especially the lobster mashed potatoes. Came out with puddles of oil on them. Gross... chef needs to learn how to cook without dousing everything in oil. For the price of the meal, I expect better than what Red Lobster can do.
really good food perfectly prepared!
Wedding dinner! Some would consider the portions small but I thought they were perfect and left room for an incredible dessert! Fantastic! Pricey as most Mitchell places but as always it's worth it for the quality.
Good but pricey
The food and atmosphere were very good. The food is very pricey and while I enjoyed dinner, I think there are too many other notable and fine restaurants in which I would like to dine.
This was restaurant was recommended to us by a good friend, it had good reviews so we went. We visited the Columbus for the second time. When we got to the restaurant they took us to our table, which there was an issue with, but very quickly they fixed it and apologized. The rest of the evening was superb! The food, the service, the ambiance.....just everything was perfect! It reminded us to our visit in Vancouver. I highly recommend this restaurant!
M is perfect for a special occasion!
We had an absolutely fantastic time at M. The black orchid martini is great. The steak in a bowl is pretty much the best. The asparagus are delicious.
Love the M
Always have a great experience from the staff to the food.
One of the truly greats...
We are always delighted with the service and food at M, and it is our 'go to restaurant' for all really special occasions. Since the closure of Handke's it definitely tops our short list for 'best restaurant in Columbus'. We have only one small criticism: Normally one of its attractions for us is the low ambient noise level, but for some reason that was not the case on our most recent visit on a Saturday night.
