M Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

They were packed and super busy but once we were serviced we felt like we were their most important customers. The food from the bread to the entree was absolutely delicious. We will be returning to Columbus just to dine there.

Consistently excellent food, the work of executive chef JeffRabold. The setting is upscale New York City. The service was prompt, friendly at not the least ostentatious. The restaurant is very expensive by local standard, but was considered very reasonable by a fiend living in Washington SC. My veal dish was both creative and delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the quiet atmosphere.

This was my first time dining at M. It was a very nice experience with good service, very good food, and a very pleasant atmosphere. I liked that we spent 2 1/2 hours and never felt rushed. My date and I shared the Dragon sushi for an appetizer (crab, avocado, cucumber, and barbequed eel.) It was okay, not great; probably would try a different sushi next time ($16). For my entree I had the Veal Mignon (veal tenderloin, braised veal cheek, asiago crepe). Very tasty, good sized portion, would order it again. My date had the Colorado Lamb Chops (with marinated tomatoes, cucumber, feta cheese). My taste of it was very good and my companion enjoyed it very much. Dessert was the only disappointment of the night: Cake and Ice Cream, which was a very pedestrian chocolate lava cake with a tiny, tiny spoonful of ice cream. Wasn't worth the $10. Wine list was large and a little intimidating but we found a nice cabernet sauvignon for $49. Overall, much more expensive than I usually spend for dinner, but I knew that going it.

Everything was top notch here. The food was delicious and our server was amazing. Everyone was very accommodating and there was much thought put into every detail of the experience. This was quite a surprise and my husband and I found it to be one of the finest restaurants in Columbus. This is for those who appreciate a fine dining experience. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and I asked for an intimate large table. And they provided the perfect table for us - a round table with a round bench seat separated from other tables with a curtain. It was absolutely perfect and very romantic! We will definitely be back here for another special occasion (or just because).

Excellent overall dining experience. The wait staff was courteous and professional. The food was outstanding! Although the meal was a bit pricy, it was worth the cost. The is a must experience for any serious diner in the Columbus area.

A+++ in every category!! Perfect place to celebrate any occasion. My wife and I selected M for our anniversary dinner and could not have made a better decision. From the moment we walked in, we were well taken care of by the friendly staff whom all had smiles on their faces the whole time. I did give an advance notice that we were there to celebrate our anniversary, and all the staff we came into contact with told us congratulations. They even covered our dessert to thank us for joining them for our dinner. The food was hands down the best I have had in my 16 years of living around Columbus. I had Steak in a bowl and my wife had the lamb chops. I highly recommend both dishes along with the mac and cheese.

This is a restaurant that we have Enjoyed several times within the last here. We came for a special occasion- birthday celebrations. Each time, whether our party was large (6) or small (2), every person was pleased with their meal. Our last visit we enjoyed a perfect fillet in the bowl. I would recommend this dish, as it was cooked to perfection. Their menu is available online, so you can review options and pricing.

Overall, the "juice wasn't worth the squeeze". The items were overpriced for what they were. The entree was SUPER small and I was quite surprised given the $40+ price tag. We began with a Sushi appetizer which was really good and a LOT bigger than the actual meals. The "feature" drinks were very overpriced and not "great". I tried 3 different cocktails and none were very good - very syrupy. I even mentioned this to the bartender after the first drink and she mentioned she would make the next one with that in mind. However, each subsequent drink was equally syrupy and unenjoyable. Given the price for each drink, I was completely dissatisfied - but we tend to not complain on date night.
The entrée was "ok". We are "foodies" and frequent high end restaurants regularly. However, the overall experience was definitely not up to par with ANY other restaurant we frequent in this price range. Very dissatisfied that after spending over $200, I was still hungry upon leaving.

Professionally greeted at the door. Everyone had smiles. Food was just great. Descriptions by the waiter was spot on with unique dishes explained. The kitchen was busy but for a Saturday night the pace was good. Place was full and the energy was fun around out special meal. Everyone ordered something different and just loved it. Like to see the desserts come up just a little. Will go again.

Cannot go wrong with any of the appetizers, or entrees for that matter. The best drink on the menu is definitely the black orchid. Every time I dine at M I can't seem to part ways with the salmon, no matter how badly I want to try everything else. It's that good. I would eat here every night if it was my decision.

Wife and I sat in the patio. There was a nice group playing some tunes, weather was great. Maybe the best food in Columbus. You get what you pay for and although M is top dollar it is also some of the best if not the best food in Cbus.

M was lovely. The food was excellent and the presentation was very attractive. Our waiter was wonderful. The only negative was the very long space of time between our first course and entree. Our waiter came back a couple of times saying the food would be out shortly and apologizing for the wait. No idea what was going on, since the restaurant was not very crowded, although there was an event going on somewhere in the space. It seemed to be the kitchen and not the waiter.
My companion cannot drink alcohol, but they made a really nice non-alcoholic cocktail for her.

We had a perfect dining experience. Brittany was a wonderful waitress and made the evening delightful. The food, cocktails, ambiance, and service made for one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. We were not rushed and truly enjoyed our evening. Thank you to the team at M for a wonderful evening.

Although the others in our party had visited M before, it was my first time there and I really enjoyed it. We got a great table (in a window alcove); watching the sunset was lovely. The menu had lots of good choices and the special prix fixe menu included some good choices at a good price. All the food was delicious including salads, entrees and a delicious root-beer float -- another first for me.

Had a perfect date evening at M last Saturday. Service was impeccable from the hostesses, to the waiter (Trevor), to the manager, Jack, and my favorite chef, Mike Strine. Thank you for making it special for all of us !!!

The food was absolutely delicious! We were seated in a very nice table. They give you the idea of dining in private by the sheer drapes.
Mostly though, our server Amanda was so knowledgeable, personable and professional! What a gem you have in this young lady!
Thank you for a lovely evening celebrating our daughter-in-law's birthday.

M is always good. the Orchid is by far the best drink. I order it every time. Our server was less than great this time which is quite unusual as the servers are usually great. I had fish as I always do and my husband had lamb. Both were well prepared. The salad options are all really goo as well.
