Imam Nawawi (May Allah shower His Mercy on him) has written in Sharh Sahih Muslim:

Translation:  The authoritative opinion with the majority of the Ulema is that in the night of Meraj, the Holy Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) saw Allah Ta’ala with His physical eyes.  (Sharh Muslim Lin Nawawi, Kitab Ul Iman)
