    The food was amazing, plain and simple but the service was not good. Our waitress seemed overwhelmed once more tables sat down and she had to multi task. The person who brought our food out who also attended the front desk, they were also amazing. We may be back but I’ll be honest if we were to get the waitress we had, I’d get up and walk right out. Couldn’t have it where she waits on us again… too bad.

    The table we sat at was too small and too close to the tables on either side. We could hear conversations of both parties. Food was good…but have had better for the price. Service was good and it is a beautifully decorated restaurant. We travel to Columbus often, but probably will not return to the Guild House…many other options in the area.

    The Guild House Happy hour is a great way to spend your early evening hours! Great prices on small plates, house cocktails, beer, and wine. Although it was busy Friday night, our server was great and the food and drinks didn’t take too long to get to the table. I will say portions are on the smaller side, which isn’t an issue, just that you’ll likely have room to split a few small plates in addition to your main course. I highly recommend the tuna ribbons and the forest mushroom small plates. The scallop entree and the duck cavatelli were also winners. I don’t think you can order poorly here. Everything is executed well.

    Thanksgiving prix fixe dinner was enjoyed by all that ordered it. Along with wine pairing, it was a good deal. Other entrees ordered were delicious. Filets were amazing. Nice wine list. Our server was a little lacking in personality but service was fine. Just seemed like perhaps she didn’t really enjoy working on Thanksgiving

    We have dined at Guild House before and enjoyed our experience. Unfortunately, our visit on Thanksgiving was not up to the usual standard. While I understand that holiday dining can be busy and stressful for restaurant staff, forgetfulness and inattention are not something that I can overlook. I expected the service to be slower than usual, normal for peak group dining event season. However, lack of attention to the details of our order (dinner rolls ordered, never appeared), and ignoring our table once the entree was placed (no water or drinks refilled / replenished) and cold food are difficult to forgive. Additionally, our expectations were not adequately managed - the Thanksgiving entree had cranberry gastrique drizzled over the entire dish; someone in our party abhors cranberry and asked for a plate without it we were told it would take an additional 40 minutes. Really? With 80% of the guests eating the Holiday menu, I find that implausible. Also, the prix fixe menu listed an amuse bouche, starter, entrée and dessert. When it came time to order, we were told we must choose between the amuse and starter. THIS IS NOT A THING - in fine dining establishments, the amuse bouche is compliments of the chef, not a substitute for an appetizer. Not only was that not made clear on the menu, the amuse was pitifully small (as an amuse *should* be when coming before all else) and not at all on par with the size of the starter - so those in our party who chose the amuse (soup) were woefully disappointed. While I have enjoyed Guild house in the past, I am not sure I’ll try my luck again the next time I come home to Ohio.

    What has such potential turned out to be disappointing... We booked a table based on my sister's request to have her birthday dinner here. Upon entering and walking to the table, I was struck by the design, layout, and overall ambience - strong first impression. Unfortunately, they put us all the way in back in view of the bathrooms and the heavily trafficked area for the kitchen entrances/ exits - not pleased. No, I didn't ask to move, but perhaps in restrospect, I should have. That being said, since I reserved the table via OpenTable and told them we would be celebrating my sister's birthday, I certainly thought and hoped that they would treat the evening as special. Alas, not. Our waiter was pretty good, although she disappeared for long stretches. We often had to get her attention (when we could find/ see her) in order to keep the evening from becoming overly long, although it did stretch. The appetizers/ salads were solid efforts, although given the pricing, felt overvalued. The mains were also generally praised by the table, although their signature dish, the filet mignon, first came our far too over-cooked, and then the second time, well under-cooked. I didn't bother sending it back for a third time as by then, the rest of the table had finished their entrees. They did allow us to serve a birthday cake that we brought with us to share and also gifted my sister a dessert of her choice to take home. If our waiter offered us coffee, tea, or after dinner drinks, I certainly missed it. Ultimately, for the price, I would not return nor recommend. Slow, often inattentive service, a poorly cooked signature dish, and a thoughtless seating section devalued what could have been a lovely experience. Next time, I will try The Pearl across the street or just head back to Lindy's.

    We enjoyed our meal and service but we’re not blown away by either. The poblano appetizer was small for the price but tasty. The cavetelli and pork cheeks were good as were the gem salad and sweet potato soup. The ice cream dessert was very good.

    Definitely one of the best restaurants in Columbus. The food, the service, and the atmosphere are all extraordinary. We've been to many Cameron Mitchell restaurants in town, and this is at the top of the list. Pricey, but they back it up in every category. Travis was our server and he provided an exceptional experience. Highly recommend.
