Nice Family Place – My 4 year old daughter loves this place. Her favorite part is eating in the trolly. We usually only go here before or after a show we are seeing down town. This was the first time we have eaten here for dinner and not had to wait to be seated. Food arrived fast and the waitress and staff was very friendly. The food is just OK... I can make the same thing on the stove for the family, but the environment and appeal is worth a dine.
Give it a try but don'e expect too much. :)
First Dining Experience – I am really surprised by all the poor reviews! My Fiance' and I went for the first time this past Tuesday evening. We loved the decor, all the antiques, etc. SW had been recommended to us for our Rehearsal Dinner site for our upcoming wedding by some friends, so we decided to eat here and try it.
We spoke to the manager when we arrived and she was really great- very friendly and accommodating. She was also very knowledgeable about vegan diets, which was wonderful since being vegan it can be difficult to eat out at new restaurants.
Our server was great, she did a great job up-selling items (my Fiance' is actually a restaurant manager and commented on this specifically) and our food was fantastic. We had a wonderful experience and will be back in October for our Rehearsal Dinner, if not sooner!
Hate to say "I hate Spaghetti Warehouse" argh..! – Well I have visited other spaghetti Warehouse branch and I'm happy with them and kids are entertained with these old arcade games and antiques stuff..
But I don't know what happened with this branch, It look likes they really need new staff or more so change the whole management. Things are in mess and dirty (didn't able to use the comfort room) and food are cold as my iced tea.
I miss the other Spaghetti Warehouse "ambiance". I'm hopping to see it soon XD.
Not recommended – For a party food can come to you cold. When I was in that party the back of the restaurant the restrooms needed attention. The food was good but cold. Salvatore did not like a comment a person had made about the restaurant maybe Salvatore works there. Possibly. Still if a website is created to make comments or a rating you should accept the ratings and comments as a critic as most of us are when we go on these websites. It is expected. When you stated that person should not go to your restaurant that they would not be satisfied then things that were brought up maybe it was true and it needed work on either that restaurant or yours. Then Salvatore stated any negative comment that was made about it that there was a name for that person. So Salvatore I challenge you what is the name of your restaurant so paying customers can come and eat and try out your restaurant. So Salvatore do you work for this restaurant are you the manager? Everybody has an opinion it would not be American not having the right to do so.
this place is terrible – wow i cant believe how bad the food was at this place. yea it was a good deal but i couldnt eat it so how good of a deal was it really, there was nothing good at all not the salad not the pasta not the serivce if i remember correctly even the carbonated drinks were kinda flat, i dont get how these people are still in buisness. dont waste your time and money.
It needed workers – I think they lacked workers and their bathrooms needed work. Food came out cold. It was good. Spaghetti don't taste too bad cold-like. Of course I am not able to speak for those who are able to eat slightly cold things. Bathrooms especially in the back area needed work. Did not lock and soap was not on hand.
Spaghetti Warehouse has stood the test of time in my book. Its a Columbus icon and sometimes it's better not to fix what is not broken. Alot of people slam this restaurant because the menu is dated or the decor hasn't changed, etc. That what makes it great, to me. I know exactly what I'm going to be tasting and it will be the same every time. The bread and salad are by far one of my favorite parts of the meal. The staff and ambiance are consistent - we've always had waiters that know what they're doing and are on the ball. Yes, there is better Italian in town, but for a visit downtown in a classic establishment with decent food for the price, you can't beat it. Lots of great memories here and hope it's around forever!

Once great, now not – I think the first time I went there was 30+ years ago. I have always remembered it as being pretty good, but my last two visits were not so great. While the decor has stood the test of time, the menu is very dated. Food is bland, and the wait staff is mediocre at best. I know restaurants are having money issues now a days, but don't make your cuts on the food and service people. Revitalize the menu...get some items that are fresh and pop, or it might be the end for this Columbus icon.
Not impressed at ALL@ – this was my 1st time to spaghetti warehouse and I will never return. our food was very, very bland as though the chef didn't taste anything prior to plating it. our waiter was the worst server i have ever had--it took him 5 tries to even come close to getting our bills correct! I finally wrote out what each couple had ordered and he still didn't bring the correct bills to us and had the gall to say to us that hopefully they were close enough because he wasn't redoing them! I will never return here again! The food even made some in our party ill.
