Best restaurant in Columbus, Ohio - regardless of price?

b

I'd like to buy a good friend of mine, and her husband, a gift certificate to a great restaurant in Columbus, OH or the surrounding area. Hopefully something romantic. This is a "thank you" gift. They never get to go out much b/c they have two kids. I don't care about the price. It's worth it!

I'm also open to doing a bed and breakfast that has a great restaurant.

Any suggestions?

    Anybody know, does the Worthington Inn still function as a hotel/B&B, or are they strictly a restaurant these days?

      Worthington Inn has turned the hotel part into condos. Food is still wonderful.

      I'd recommend The Refectory. Classic French food, great service. Definitely not cheap, but it feels like a special occasion when you go there. www.therefectoryrestaurant.com

      M is a Cameron Mitchell place that is about the prettiest decor-wise in the city. I'm not usually a chain-restaurant person, but it is very glamorous and the food is quite good. It's somewhere I'd go if given a gift certificate and love it, but I wouldn't take myself there. www.cameronmitchell.com

        I'd say, in terms of food, your best bets are:

        Deepwood
        Latitude 41 (which is inside the Renaissance Hotel, a great downtown hotel - we go there for staycations whenever we can)
        Rigsby's
        G. Michael's

        I'm not aware of any B&Bs that have restaurants in Columbus proper
