The food is delicious, the staff is friendly and the atmosphere is great! The downtown location is very desirable as well. To top it all the live music is wonderful!

Excellent selection of appetizers, entrees, desserts and cocktails. The grilled grouper topped with crabmeat sauce was outstanding. The Filet Mignon, medium-rare, was tender and grilled to perfection. Outstanding desserts; the cheesecake with choice of topping is terrific. Entertainment is offered at select times.

Dinner - dark, noisy, full of atmosphere, but a tad over rated. Full bar with a boisterous bar menu but light pour on the martini side!! Abundant beer and wine list. The halibut special was very tasty, if meager, pork chops delicious, but the steak provided the largest portion of the evening- although a mediocre cut , full of gristle... More

Had the grilled chicken sandwich, sweet potato fries, and salad with house balsamic. The grilled chicken was dry and tough and not really great. The fries were tremendous and some of the best ever. The salad was average with outstanding dressing. Very noisy and unable to talk without almost shouting. Not a place to carry out a private conversation or... More

We went to hear a band and drinks, along with finger food. Great atmosphere for couples, They have a calendar of events to see when your favorite band is playing. Drinks were good.

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!
