Description: Sidebar is a multi-level restaurant located downtown Columbus. Sidebar offers special menus and private party spaces of many sizes and styles to suit the needs of you and your guests. Each level creates a distinctive and inspiring experience. Our divergent spaces – from our lower level piano bar, which will transport you and your guests to the days of traversing back alleys for a hard to find speakeasy, to the intimate bar and lounge on our second level - means we have the ideal space for you - whether it be a romantic dinner for two, a business dinner or a private party. For larger events, we offer full or partial buy-out of the restaurant.

The sun was shining and the breeze was strong but we sat outside in the dining garden. The empanadas were exceptional as were the sautéed mushrooms. We had wine from the rather large wine list of both red and white wines. The focus was wonderfully focused on Spanish tapas with a distinctly South American flair. The sardines were exceptional and served with artichokes and fried bread. The South American cheesecake with mint leaves and chocolate was great!

The service here is quite good. They keep things moving, pay attention to your drinks but so not "hover". Their mixed drinks are worth it, no watering anything down here. Full of flavor choices for the pallette. Had the pita appetizer, and the cheese and fruit plate both were very good.

Saw the great reviews and decided to try it out. There is parking in the back of the restaurant which was convenient. Tried a variety of tapas which included their house salad, beef empanadas, shrimp with garlic and calamari. It was some of the best flavors that I have had. Finished with tres leches desert and that was a great ending to the meal!

I had remembered the excellent cocktails and food here so dropped in for a return visit and wasn't disappointed. They snuck me in on a busy Fri evening and I enjoyed an excellent meal.

Very pleasant bartenders and small plates of plantains, shrimp, and everything else we had was great. Drinks and wine very reasonable in price. Nice bar area too.
