    Great local spot. We live in GV and eat here weekly. Good menu options with seasonal updates. Knowledgeable bartenders, wide range of cocktails, and daily lunch specials. Definitely recommend!

  • Joel Becktell

    Nice atmosphere, amazing lunch specials, perfectly prepared food on both of my visits so far.

  • Mark Webster

    I ate at the bar...Good bartender who was knowledgeable. Food was served relatively quickly considering it was pretty crowded in the restaurant. The salmon dish was cooked perfectly and nice original presentation.

  • Alyssa Chenault

    Currently the best place to eat in Columbus. With the addition of their sushi neighbor, there's truly something for everyone. We had oysters, potstickers, coconut curry soup, trout entree, and beignets (better than NOLA). Everything was delectable! And service ... woweee! Matt was a kind, courteous, attentive server. Best meal we've had out in a while. So glad this gem is on the southside!

  • Laura Hallstrom

    The service, atmosphere, and food were all wonderful. I'm excited to go back!

  • Jesse Ghiorzi

    I've been at least a half-dozen times since moving to the neighborhood 5 weeks ago. Brunch is killer, lunch specials are strong, the pizza is really good, the grilled chicken on the salad was the moistest piece of chicken I've ever had in my life, no hyperbole. Always super accommodating to my wife and I when we bring our 1-year-old.

  • Tom Vasale

    A nice restaurant for dinner with friends after a walk through Schiller Park. The food and service were great.

  • Mattheus Falhouse

    I’m from Cincinnati and my friend took me to south village grill for dinner when I came up to visit. It was an awesome pick. Our waitress was kind and knowledgeable. The service was decently fast for a busy Saturday night. I got the shrooms pizza with cauliflower crust, I was shocked that the crust was cauliflower! It tasted just like a flatbread! It was really delicious. We also got an order of beignets to share (per our waitresses advice) and they were amazing! In my opinion, better than cafe du monde. Definitely will come back if in the area!

  • Eleanor Kamke

    My husband and I live in the German Village and visit the SVG at least once a week, if not 2 or 3. The food is amazing (seriously, all of it!) and the staff always make you feel at home. It’s elevated without feeling stuffy, and there are plenty of healthy AND indulgent options.
