The Loft

Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Food and ambience

Special Occasion Dining, Groups, Bar Scene
The Loft is a 2 level restaurant with a live music venue upstairs. Amazing food, friendly service, and delicious drinks mixed with an atmosphere you won't find anywhere else at the hub of Uptown Columbus! The Loft is a Columbus Uptown favorite, a family run business rooted in local history since 1992, combining food, fun, and music in a scrumptious and unique way. It has always been our family's goal to share with our patron's quality and value in a casual atmosphere. In short, if you love extraordinary food, the best in live entertainment plus a warm and welcoming service staff, come spend the evening with us!

This is a very nice restaurant. The food was delicious. I had the grill chicken, which was excellent, and my friend had the steak, which was also excellent.

I don't work at this restaurant. I was merely a patron for one night. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving dinner and vacation.

They have several, including chocolate and cheesecake, but I only personally tried the carrot cake. It was worth returning
