The Refectory Restaurant & Bistro Ratings and Reviews
Sam, the waiter, was very knowledgeable about the menu selection even though the new menu had only been out for a week. He was also super knowledgeable on French cuisine and culture and gave good recommendations to our group. It made for a wonderful experience.
Had maybe too high expectations going in, but felt a little disappointed. Food plating was lovely and the desserts were pretty and tasty, but the appetizers-entrees were ok. There are other restaurants with comparable reputations that we have enjoyed more. I wish we felt differently.
Wonderful service. I was there for a special occasion that I mentioned passively to the Host and they brought out a complimentary toast of Champagne to the table. The staff was patient, informative, and kind. The food was excellent, and wine recommendations were much appreciated. One of the best meals I've ever had and the best meal I've had in Columbus. With this level of quality, you expect to pay more but they remain competitive with other high-end restaurants.
Every year we look forward to the Tax Relief Menu, and we were not disappointed! 3 courses from the spring menu for $39. Service was spot on, and all 3 courses were delicious! The duck with the duck bacon and mushroom crepes is my partner's favorite! My short ribs were amazing too! The Refectory is our favorite restaurant in Cbus!
We celebrated my fathers 81st birthday at The Refectory. In the notes on my reservation I noted that exact thing. When we arrived for dinner everyone greeted him with a Happy Birthday and even had 2 cards in the table that said Happy 81st Birthday. It was perfect. The whole evening was more than I could have asked from the food to the excellent service.
Have dined there a few times but this was a special experience. My wife and I decided to have separate salad and soup, but then share an entree. It was first time we have done this at The Refectory, but other places we have had to separate the entree ourselves. This come as two separate meals..amazing presentation, equal amounts and delicious. We will definitely come back!
This is truly a very fine restaurant. Our meals were delicious. The service was impeccable (thanks Ali) and the atmosphere is beyond compare in Columbus Ohio. This restaurant continues to set the standard for the highest quality cuisine and service in the city.
