Worse Dinner Ever! Very dissappointing!.
Not worth one star. Food was awful. Sent one steak back that was under cooked, it came back over cooked. Another steak that was 'medium' was so rare it was rubbery and raw. Scallops were over done and tasted like rubber. Hamburger was dry and tasteless. Was there an actual Chef in the building? Perhaps all entres were frozen and improperly prepared and cooked? I cannot believe we had to pay the horribly high prices for such crap. We took clients and were embarrassed. We will never go to another Fish Market or affiliate. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
used to be better.
i used to visit the fish market alot when i lived in columbus, but that was years ago. the other day i chose to have dinner there and was really disapointed the fish was not very fresh at all, and i really cant say that anybodys plate at my table looked good when the food arrived. the flavors are really bland and mild the prices are high, the service is just ok, if you sit at the bar you will get much better service then in the dining room for some reason. there are much better places in columbus to get seafood for the same price so dont waste your time folks.
One of the worst dining experiences in town..
This is your typical Cameron Mitchell restaurant. High profile, trendy atmosphere, pricey food - poor service, bland meals - even the dessert lacked! I don't mind paying a lot for a dinner, but the value/quality for your money is just not there. I went at lunch time, it was not busy and my service was still terrible. My fish came out lukewarm, hushpuppies were mushy/raw-like, I could not get anyones attention to fix the problems, so I left most of my meal and hoped for a filling dessert. My dessert was not at all worth the calories, so I left it - the server didn't even notice it was untouched. I later emailed the restaurant to voice my disappointment and got NO followup email or phone call to even apologize for my experience.
The staff was friendly, the food delicious, and I will definitely be making another trip. I recommend the appetizer shrimp. They are wrapped in bacon with barbecue sauce and rice. Yum! Add this place to your list of "must visit" places in Columbus!
Fresh and cooked to perfection.
I tried the platter where you could choose 3 different types of fish cooked any way you want - it was difficult to decide a favorite. I typically only eat shell-fish, but the fish I received was even better. My favorite was the grilled Tilapia - excellent!
It's a 10!.
The drinks were great. I had the Ciroc Vodka drink they had, my husband and our friend had margarita's and bloody marys. They said they were great as well. I had the Chilean Sea Bass which was so good, I want to go back for more. Even driving 2 hours to get there. Service was exceptional, all 5 of us were very impressed. We love dining out and Cameron Mitchell has it down pat. A little noisy in room we were in, but there are other tables you can go to get the ambiance if you need it. Quieter areas for those romantic, and areas good for families. Place was packed, recommend reservations.
I liked everything about the place except the food. I really thought it was nothing exceptional at all. Despite requesting that my tuna be well done, it arrived pink in the center. The veggie sides were virtually raw also. I wouldn't go back.
Fresh fish flown in daily, superior service and a creative menu keeps landlocked locals coming back for more.. The Scene Blue-shirted staffers buzz efficiently to and fro providing friendly and knowledgeable service. Nautical-inspired metal sculptures and paintings support the sea theme. This is fine, casual dining at its best. The Food All types of seafood from both coasts are featured. The fresh catch section of the menu changes daily and is served a variety of ways, including Shanghai-style (steamed with ginger and chives in white wine soy sauce). Crowd pleasers include Maine lobster bisque, Chesapeake crab cakes and New Orleans seafood stew. Turf lovers will enjoy the stellar steak choices, including the Filet Oscar topped with crab meat and béarnaise sauce. After-dinner selections includes malt scotches, liqueured coffees and the infamous Sharkfin Pie--several peanut butter products and other goodies stacked six inches high.
I'm from the East Coast and I've never tasted seafood like this in the Midwest~! I have to eat there once a week or I start to have withdrawals@! The servers are extremely knowledgeable and help tremendously.
