I can't rave enough about this restaurant...it is consistently great, and our family likes to celebrate family events here, because the seating is so conducive to larger parties. The bar scene is very active as the restaurant sits at the entrance of the Short North, and across the street from the Convention Center. Whether it's a Monday or weekend, there... More

I went here with a co-worker after work as it was a short walk from the Nationwide Boulevard area. Never really have an issue getting a table at the bar and sat down and were approached immediately. The server staff was very friendly and were definitely "taken care of" during meal with prompt attention, brief conversation, and they allowed us... More

Been to Martini's a couple of times, typically later on a weekday evening (ie: after 7p). Usually when we get there the place is pretty busy, but then clears out shortly afterwards. Reservations are recommended as this place is fairly busy. The bar area is great and both times I was in, there was large container of vodka with pineapple.... More

It is difficult to find the perfect spot to please 50+ family members. Martini's provided us with an exceptional experience from the planning with Marta, the incredible service team, super accommodating chef and delicious food. Special shout out to Amanda!

A friend took me to Martini during my recent visit to Columbus and advertised it as "an Italian place". So, my expectations were like "some pasta and some pizza" - far from what I was about to experience: perfect high-class Italian fine dining! The restaurant is located in Short North (were you can find a lot of dining options). It's... More

The evening did not start off very well. Reservation was for 7:45 but didn't get seated until 8:10. The manager (Alexis) came to us while we were waiting and apologized for the table not being ready. She offered complimentary appetizers (2). Once we were seated (party of 6), our waitress took our drink orders. All I can say is there... More

We picked Martinis for dinner based on previous reviews and we were not disappointed! We were not able to make a reservation, but took our chances for a seat at the bar. Being a few minutes late, we missed the Happy Hour prices of 5.00 Martinis.... and reduced appetizer prices:(. A great deal, if you are able to make it.... More

The last time I was here was a long time ago. I had liked the ambience but wasn't that impressed with the food. However, i came here recently on a business dinner and the experience was far better. Starting with the server who was incredibly friendly and provided excellent recommendations, everything went perfectly. For appetizers, we got the calamari, the... More

We were staying in Columbus for the weekend and I needed a gluten free menu for my wife. Found this place around the corner from the Hilton. The food was great, the gluten free meal was better than mine. The service was great. The only downside was the clients. A very yuppie crowd that was very full of themselves.

Thank bill s
