Somedays Bistro Ratings and Reviews
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.
Our first visit to Somedays Bistro was a very good one. We enjoyed a lovely evening on the patio a couple weeks ago - the service, ambience and wine selection were all very good. Our food was good as well - my only hesitation being that I ordered the special of the evening (a black and bleu risotto of some sort) and it seemed that there may still be a little bit of "tweaking" that needs to be done. I am not one to shy away from strong tastes (and I love bleu cheese) but it was a bit overpowering and could have used a bit more of the greens to balance it out. Otherwise, the steak and risotto were cooked perfectly and we very much enjoyed my husband's entree and the small plate we had ordered. I have no doubt that we'll make our way back again.
We have been to Somedays on several occasions. Each time has been a delight. Food choices were great and service was outstanding. We have dined both inside and out. Love the location! Salads and burgers are a favorite. If you can get the small private room go for it!
.. the initial hostess was going to sit us at a hi-top..I had indicated in my reservation a quiet table. I could see that she saw my reservation requested a quiet table.. The only tables they had were 6tops or higher.. she got her manager who sat us in quiet corner 6 top table..
Will b making future reservations and visits.
Somedays was quite nice. We were there on June 14th for dinner. Everyone enjoyed their food which included the Lobster beer mac & cheese -rich and delicious, charred brussels sprouts, risotto, salmon, bbq chicken pizza and salad. Varied and we all shared, a group of 6. Dessert was wonderful too, the chocolate mousse is just perfect - like eating a cloud and the creme brulee - decadent. There was nothing any of us did not like, a very enjoyable evening! Kevin , our wait person was efficient and very personable too! If you have never been you should try it!
The ownership apparently changed in January and with it went the great food and service. Not one dish was worth the money. The new owner introduced himself and did his best along with a waiter to make us happy, but not much you can do when the food is way over salted, over cooked and/or just doesn't taste right. It's too bad because this use to be one of our favorites.
This is certainly a fine choice for anyone who likes wines. The flights are really good, and fairly priced. The menu is on the smallish side, but does go well with the wines that are offered. The outdoor patio seating is nice, though evening sun can get hot.
