Food was wonderful--particularlyFood was wonderful--particularly the hanger steak and the Korean short ribs. This is from a person who usually does not eat meat! I'd go back in a heartbeat.6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNice addition to University CircleThis was our 1st encounter with Accent. The 4 of us all got different dishes, and all were sampled and delicious. We shall return.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is prepared wonderfully--wThe food is prepared wonderfully--we had the Korean short ribs and the hanger steak. Not only does the food taste good but the dishes are presented beautifully. Servers are quick on their feet and know their menus. Looking forward to their patio opening in a week.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGet set for an adventureThis beautiful new space is also the place for amazing culinary experiences. No matter how experienced a diner you are, you will find new ingredients and combinations to delight your palate. For a broad sampling try the Korean Celebration - tasting portions of nine different dishes. Even if you are familiar with the Josper oven and robatayaki you will be surprised by compressed watermelon and edamame hummus. We found the kimchee and bulgogi flatbread very tasty. The grilled squid appetizer is more than enough to share. We will definately get the scallops again, and save room for Smores.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMcontemporary asian ambienceUnusual sleek looking restaurant. Korean short ribs were the best as are the SASA fries. All 4 of us loved our dinners.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food!We held a celebration lunch for a group off 10 on a week day. The entire experience was terrific! Everyone loved the food! I highly recommend Accent.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe sea bass and the steakThe sea bass and the steak special were very tasty. My only complaint is the prices seem a little high (these entrees were both over 30 dollars). However in general the food was very good and I would definitely go back.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful gemAccent is terrific. The food is outstanding and the mod interior is among the best in the city. We were fortunate enough to be seated next to the kitchen where you can watch the Josper oven and Robata grill in action. It's a terrific show. The house pickles are well worth ordering. We also had the Japanese eggplant and tuna ceviche appetizer specials. Both were memorable. The standout dish was the pork chop with mustard greens and blackberry glaze. If available, you shouldn't pass it up as I'd rank it among the best pork dishes I've ever eaten. For dessert, try the awesome S'mores made with the Josper. All in all, Accent deserves a long life. Highly recommended and one of the best choices in UC.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGood new restaurantAccent lived up to its reputation for creative Asian fusion, Laura, the server was perfect for a very "hip' appearing restaurant. It has a range of offerings from typical to bold so it does accomodate many tastes. The wine list was very good and afforable5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood very good. A littleFood very good. A little too much oil on kebab appetizers and salmon entre but the flavors were quite good. We weren't happy with the valet trying to charge multiple rates to park the car and complained. We had great and accommodating service. We would go back.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Find!One of the best meals we have had in Cleveland for a long time. We definitely will be back. The only problem was finding it. It is correctly identified in the Open Tabke map, but if you use Google Map or another GOS locator to find it you end up in the wrong neighborhood. This should be mentioned on your site or on the restaurant website.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOriginal. Delicious. Vibrant.Since Accent is from the same people who own Sasa in Shaker Square, I was looking forward to a great evening and I was not disappointed. Accent is a striking restaurant, beautifully rendered in stainless, black and red, well, accents. The food leans towards the oriental--Korean BBQ, and a terrific and unusual selection of yakitori that goes way beyond chicken (Do NOT miss the pork belly, brisket or mushroom varieties) but there is also a large selection of steaks, including hanger steak with chimichurri. So yes, the menu is eclectic, but everything we had was excellent, wiuth the exception of some sort of rice ball app that was only so-so. Prices are very fair, it's great for grazing, excellent beer list. Terrific service. Go!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMI've eaten at Accent fourI've eaten at Accent four times in the last two weeks and each visit has been a food adventure. Even with so many visits there are still things on the menu I want to try. The service is exceptional. The decor is dynamite. Everything I've had has been delicious. I highly recommend.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been to Accent twiceI've been to Accent twice for lunch, both times ordering the Donburi Rice Bowl with Beef and Vegetables. The atmosphere is sophisticated yet not too stiff. I love the black and red color scheme. Chairs are very comfortable. It is truly an up-and-coming destination spot in University Circle!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat new alternativeThe preparation and menu selection are both unique. They provide a new alternative for Cleveland. The staff was wonderful at explaining food and technique. The were also responsive when we realized that we were running late. We will go back when we can linger. Only reason for 4 ratings rather than 5 is the need for more vegetarian alternatives.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMy new favorite spot-- loveMy new favorite spot-- love it! The atmosphere is vibrant and the food exceptional. If you haven't tried Accent yet, please do so soon!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNeeds more traffic in theNeeds more traffic in the up town area to make this the gem it could be. Once the Uptown project is completed, it should prove to be a really great magnet. The uniqueness of the cooking style and cuisine will make it a great gathering place.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a short amount of time,We had a short amount of time, and our server was able to accommodate our time constraints. Quick service. Quality food. Relaxed atmosphere. Great asset to the University Circle community.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOur party of three seniorsOur party of three seniors was at the restaurant at 5:30 pm, so it was too early to determine whether or not Accent is a "hot spot" for the younger crowd, but we saw excellent potential for that. The atmosphere was modern and tasteful, the location was right, the food and service were excellent, and the menu had a nice range of choices for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike.
Accent's University Circle/Uptown location was a positive feature of our visit. We will definitely return for another dinner engagement, and we heartily recommend Accent to others.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAccent is a great new ClevelandAccent is a great new Cleveland restaurant!

All of the robata grill dishes are amazing and the fries are excellent as well. The decor is awesome and has a great vibe, the only thing missing is the bustling crowd. It was pretty quiet for a Saturday night even though we were there on the early side. It's a new place so hopefully the word just hasn't gotten out yet. We will definitely be back. Don't miss the s'mores dessert!!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI went to Accent two weekendsI went to Accent two weekends in a row and I can't wait to go back.

Deedra2/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA very cool restaurant designA very cool restaurant design in a very cool newly created urban spot. My steak was perfectly cooked and in terms of the other hanger steaks being offered around town this one I felt was larger in ounces than other places. The flavour of the accompanying Brussels sprout and potatoes and carrots was amazing. Friendly server willing to explain terms and items not common to Americans - well trained staff. Give this new place a try!12/5/2012 12:00:00 AM
