My wife and I stopped here for a quick meal before we settled into our hotel. The decor was nice, I kinda liked the WWI french setting.
We had Caesar Salad and soup. The salad was just ok, but the Beer Cheese Soup was pretty

Decided not to cook this year for Thanksgiving but to try something different in Columbus that we have never tried. Had heard of this restaurant for years and thought our kids (13 & 10) would like the view of the airport. The setting was

My wife and I went there and had dinner. Hadn't been there for some years and were eager to go back and check this place out. Not a bad experience but not great. Food was ok but nothing we couldn't get elsewhere. Our waiter was an attractive young man who was very pleasant and helpful.

If someone would put some energy and money into this place it could be something again.

Went there Father's Day 2009 - timely seated, pleasant staff. Roast Beef dry, Salmon dry, Perch tough. Ribs okay. Several salad selections and many breakfast choices. For the price I was expecting better quality / selections. Staff was acceptable, parking lot / exterior could use a lot of sprucing up. Desert selection unimaginative - lots of cookies, two cakes, three pies........ visited once and won't go again. Not worth the price.

Pros: Great Atmosphere

Cons: Dry, Undistinguished food at best

So I went here once with a friend and thought it was pretty good. Then took my kids there another time and the food was mediocre at best. Thinking maybe they just had a bad night, came back a third time with the wife and kids--same thing.

You go in with high expectations. The setting is super cool. Then you look at the menu and thing --this is going to be good.... unfortunately it's just NOT the case.

Save your money...

Pros: Location & Environment

Cons: Overpriced, Service is just okay

The 94th Aero Squadron was, at one time, THE place to be on the suburban east side of Columbus. With a WWII, French countryside atmosphere (complete with costumed staff), a wide-ranging, somewhat sophisticated menu, including some of the best beef dishes I've ever had, the 94th fit well into the top-tier of restaurants in the area. Unfortunately, it's hard to stay at the top. Lately, the food is not so well-prepared, the menu uninspiring, and the decor in definite need of a re-do (hasn't changed since the '80's). The folks working there are still friendly, but you still can't help feeling you've walked into a morgue. It's still fun to watch the planes take off and land, but the novelty has worn off, and without some serious investment in thought, time, and money, I don't think we'll be going back.

With all the advertising I was expecting a little more of a view of the airport. The food was not good. There weren't a lot of people there - maybe that should have tipped us off. There were flies on the windows and service was terrible. They spilled a drink on my lap and offered me free dessert? Save you money.

We were a little bit disappointed. I was surprised how limited the menu was. We both had steak, and thought it was a little pricey for what we got. Mine was quite chewy, and I ended up leaving the last third. The sides were good though - fresh and hot. The restaurant itself is very nice - lots of exposed beams, and old-fasioned knick-knacks everywhere. The big band music cd being played added to the atmosphere. We arrived just as it was opening for dinner, and were seated immediately. Ten mins later, another couple arrived, and were seated right behind us, even though the restaurant was completely empty! We thought that was a bit annoying. I would go back for drinks (their Long Island Iced Tea was spot on!) but I wouldn't want to eat.

Pros: Out of the way, Good service, Drinks

Cons: Average fare

The 94th has seen great improvement over the last few years. Service and food are wonderful. The staff seems to have stepped in up a notch. Rumor has it the best is yet to come. If you haven't been there for a while, check it out. You'll be pleasantly surprised. Those of us who are regulars consider it Columbus' best kept secret.
