Alex Bistro & Bar
Friendly vibeA very welcoming staff contributed to pleasant dining experience.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVery NiceFood was great, waitstaff was friendly and attentive.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Spot in ClevelandThis restaurant was a great find. It would be convenient if you had tickets to Playhouse Square, but the place clears out around 7/7:30 so if you're looking for a 7pm reservation in downtown Cleveland they'll likely have availability!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlex continues to improve.Alex continues to improve.

We will come again, that's for sure!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe picked Alex's because ofWe picked Alex's because of location - at Playhouse Square. Service was friendly and well-timed. Having valet service was a nice surprise for us. The atmosphere is bright and welcoming; despite having little to absorb sound, noise level was refreshingly low. We had the calamari appetizer - everyone agreed it was excellent. I had the grilled romaine salad, which was good but under-grilled IMHO. Everyone enjoyed their dinners, I had the quail...I was surprised at how small they were, but it was just the right amount. Desserts are HUGE. The tiramisu was great and more than enough for 2. Triple chocolate cake also more than enough for two...and needs a large glass of milk, it's extremely rich. Great for a casual dinner before a show!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSpeedy per show service withSpeedy per show service with good food. While nothing stood out as amazing, the whole experience was solid. We were out much more quickly than at other per show spots.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMAlex's Bistro is a great placeAlex's Bistro is a great place to stop in and have a wonderful meal before heading over to the theater for a show.
