Somedays Bistro Ratings and Reviews
We had a party of 8 and went on 5/13 at 7pm. Our waiter was very nice - except that we never got our food!! Finally at 9:30pm he told us our food was not coming. He comped our drinks and gave us a gift card to come back. Think we should have been told this after 1 hour at the
Most! 9:41 and we are at a 2nd place trying to get dinner! The owner did not come over once to apologize for the night. Apparently cooks walked out and they had a bad day. He should have went around to each table but didn't care.
We are regulars at somedays and we have always enjoyed having dinner there. In fact, it is my wife's favorite place in columbus and we were celebrating Mother's Day on Saturday evening. Typically the service is top notch and the food is excellent. Unfortunately, This time was far from the norm. Upon arrival we were seated outside and waited about 20 minutes before our server bothered to greet us. We waited another 10 minutes before he took our drink order. My pregnant wife asked for a mocktail. He replied that he did not know what that was. He went to the bar and returned and said the bartender did not know what it was either. My wife then went to the bar and asked for a mocktail and the bartender made one right away (not really a complicated request but too complex for our server apparently). I ordered a Manhattan and after 20 minutes waiting for it I decided to check at the bar. It was sitting there with almost all the ice melted. The bartender graciously offered to make a new one but I told him it was not necessary. We drank our drinks and wondered if our waiter would ever come over to take our food order. Finally we saw him again but he did not stop to check on us or take our order. I asked if we could place an appetizer order. After waiting another 20 minutes, our drinks and water glasses were empty and we still did not have an appetizer. We had been there well over an hour at this point. I asked the table behind us how their service had been. They too had a very poor experience with the same server. They had been there for well over 2 hours. At this point we decided to leave because we were hungry and did not want to wait another hour for our server to take a food order. We went next door to barrel and boar and had a nice dinner with excellent service. Very disappointing experience to say the least and not what we expect from somedays. I hope this does not become the norm. Another experience like this and you will lose two regular customers.
We went to Somedays to celebrate my graduation, but a celebration it was certainly not. We waited over an hour and fifteen minutes before we were able to order and over two hours to eventually get food. The restaurant was beyond understaffed for a Saturday night that wasn't even busy! The waitresss was nice and doing her best, but we barely ever saw her. Management was unreceptive to our complaints, or the complaints of the table next to us, who never even saw a waitress their entire time there and were being helped by the bartender who was sympathetic to their situation. Some of our party enjoyed their meals when they finally arrived, while others felt it was bland and overpriced. At the end of the day, there is no way to make a case for ever returning to this restaurant, and I warn all who might be considering doing so.
Good but overpriced. Also if your not accepting American Express take the sticker off the entrance. Usually my going out wallet is a small version with 3 things, my ID, my AX card and some dollars for valet tips. Luckily that night I had my other wallet. Bad business decision for a fine dining establishment. Won't be back and that was unanimous consensus of 5 adults with a large tab.
Nice causal restaurant. Good food, nice wine list and good service. Only drawback is parking. There is a parking garage but check to make sure no events taking place at Creekside, or else you won't find any parking spaces. We've had reservations before and couldn't find parking in the garage, on the street or surface lots due to events in the area.
I have eaten at Somedays several times and received wonderful service. This time our waitress took so much time between our drinks, taking our order, bringing us bread, the main course, the dessert menu. Once finished, we waited so long for the bill, that I got up and went to the front desk myself. I was told the restaurant was understaffed; however, there were only 4 occupied tables..all outside. When I turned, I saw our waitress just rearranging some glasses rather than bringing us our bill (how long does that take?). The entire experience of dining took over 1hr 1/2. That is not acceptable. I still gave her a 20% tip, although my companion told me to reduce that. I know that the tips are their main source of income, so I couldn't (in good conscience) leave less. I only hope that in future when we dine at Somedays, the service will be as good as it had been the previous 2 times.
Decided to try this for the first time since it took over for The Wine Guy, which we had previously enjoyed. Here are the reasons for my less than stellar review.
1 - We were given food and wine menus, but I had to ask for a cocktail menu. Not sure why this isn't given to everyone when seated.
2 - Specials were never mentioned to us. Server just asked if we were ready to order. A few minutes later I overheard the server at the next table presenting the daily specials.
3 - Server showed little emotion or interest in meeting our needs.
4 - The food was OK, but when I dine out I hope for much better than OK.
There are lots of restaurant choices nearby, so I think they'll have to get better to survive.
The waiter didn't get to our table for at least 15 minutes after we had sat down. He wasn't very attentive or helpful. He forgot to put in the bruschetta order and our meal came first. We did still want the bruschetta but when it came it was barely toasted and tasted mostly of balsamic. We had a not so good tomato mixture on soggy bread. The waiter also didn't check on us and would be gone for 15-20 minutes at a time. The risotto was sub par. My daughter and I dined there after a long drive and maybe weren't as dressed up as we would have liked to have been. It appeared that the waiter judged us and didn't pay us any attention.
My husband and I had dinner on a weeknight here. It was a lovely evening so we opted to sit outside. Even though it's right on Mill Street in Gahanna, it was not noisy. We were able to people watch and could hear the blues band playing across the plaza! Service was prompt and attentive. The food was above average (we had no leftovers). Wine options were extensive and even with the corking fee, very reasonable. Recommend.
We had great service and love the patio. This place has gone down hill, though. As a "wine bar", I would expect them to have a better selection. The shelves are basically bare, with minimal variety and one bottle per (no option of getting a second if the group loves the wine!). The former version of this place had an incredible wine selection. It's disappointing.
My husband and I found the wine tasting menus were excellent! Our food however, left a bit to be desired. We had to ask for the pork chop to be cooked again because it was so dry it was difficult to swallow (but the seasoning was good). My risotto recipe was an amazing blend of ideas and flavors, but it was so salty that I could barely eat it (like REALLY salty....I almost wondered if some had been knocked in accidentally??). Our waiter was more than happy to correct the situation and also offered us two glasses of wine on the house, which we appreciated very much.
We started with the tomatoes bruschetta. It was very flavorful. The chunks of tomato were a little large but nothing detrimental to the the taste just difficult to eat. We also chose our own bottle of wine. The wine selection is excellent and reasonably priced. For our main course I had the seafood cioppino. The seafood was cooked to perfection and the broth was very good. We also ordered the black and blue rissoto special with hanger steak. It was a huge portion and cooked to perfection and full of great fresh flavors. The brandy shrimp small plate was very rich and tasted wonderful. The pork chop with potato cakes was good the sauce was a bit too sweet. There was a live musician playing it was a little loud but tolerable. Overall excellent dinner we will return
A very nice surprise. We live on the east side and have limited options for finer dining. When looking online for restaurant week, we came across Somedays Bistro that we had no idea was there. The menu looked appetizing so we made a reservation. It still looks like the previous restaurant (Wine Guy Bistro) but some of the wine shelving has been replaced by more seating. The wine flights are still available as well. The difference was the fantastic food....Not to say the WGB food wasn't good it just wasn't what brought you to dine there. Somedays seems to have more emphasis on the food. We loved our choices from the prefix menu and hope to explore the regular menu soon.
We had a very enjoyable evening at Somedays Bistro. Salads and entrees were very good ( linguine and meatballs, hunter chicken and pork chop ). Wine selection also very nice. Thanks to our server, Cassie, for her enjoyable service. I'm sure we'll return to Somedays Bistro.
