    Fantastic curb appeal and ample parking. The inside has great decor and I love all the wood. I sat at the bar and was very comfortable. I had the lobster bisque and spicy green beans along with hand cut fries (my favorite) and it was all delicious! The bisque and beans had a nice pop of heat. My bar attendant paired a buttery chardonnay w oak undertones and it was perfect. The staff was so gracious. It is appropriate for any age but since it is a busy grille environment I would suggest speaking w the front of house manager regarding a quiet intimate dining experience. CHEERS!

    Cedar Creek Grille is a good restaurant to keep on your list. Make sure to check the menu before dining because you may find that your favorite entree is no longer available. They do have items for children, although they do not have a printed children's menu. Their regular menu has a range of items from hamburgers to fresh fish or steak. Do recommend!

    We have returned to Cedar Creek Grille many times for a variety of reasons: a great and innovative menu with offerings we like (creative but not too "out there"), beautiful ambiance, fine service and reasonable prices. Yet due to the decor, you still feel like you're somewhere else besides the busy corner of Cedar & Richmond.

    We've enjoyed dining here over the past year. This time our service was mediocre. Waiter poured water before our friends arrived for all of us. Our friends Prime Rib was quite fatty and bloody red though she ordered it medium. We called him back-he said the kitchen said she should cut into it because the interior should be medium. He, however, neglected to tell her that when he served her. It was obviously still too rare but she didn't want to send it back. He also removed all the bread and butter before our dinners came. I've had the salmon a number of times and this time it was a bit dry. The hot fudge sundae had a sauce that was neither hot nor fudgy but rather runny. We will return and give this beautiful restaurant another chance.

    My boyfriend and I celebrated his 35th birthday over dinner and everyone wished him a happy birthday. From the hostess to the busser. He was served ice cream with a candle and I didn't have to ask. Everyone was delightful and the food was great. We enjoyed the romantic setting and the quiet dining experience. I found the prices to be just right and not overly priced for the area. We will be going back in the future. I recommend Cedar Creek Grille to everyone.

    This is my third experience at Cedar Creek Grille. Not only is the food amazing, yet the wine list, ambiance and outdoor patio are exceptional. The patio has a full bar and on the Friday night I was there it had a live band. My most favorite element to this restaurant is the way it encompasses "old" Cleveland, with its wooden floors and bar; yet blends in contemporary style with it overall decor. The black and white photos of the city on the walls remind me of how much I truly appreciate being a Clevelander. It has become my favorite place to dine.

    I have enjoyed a number of meals here since their opening. The chop chop salad in particular is wonderful. This time I had the special, St Louis ribs & I wasn't thrilled with the meal. Meat was tough; flavor ok. Past experience dictates I try 1-2 more times before deciding to recommend or return.

    The ambience is lovely on the covered patio, however the service is extremely lacking. The servers were either understaffed or undertrained or both, but it made for a very uncomfortable experience. The food was actually very good. The tomato flatbread with the balsamic reduction makes me want to try it again, however, I would hesitate because of the service.

    I have been to this restaurant a few times prior and it's usually pretty good, but in this case, it was on a Monday evening and left us a little disappointed. Simply stated, they must have had their B team playing that night. Waiter was cordial but terribly undertrained and definitely not ready for prime time. The host/maitre'd was....well let's just say he was not friendly and welcoming. Ordered salmon medium, came out well done, but they quickly replaced it. NY strip ordered MR was also a little overcooked but still enjoyable. For appetizers, Calamari was light and perfectly cooked, deviled eggs a joy as always, and my wife's lobster bisque was rich and tasty albeit a little thick for my taste. Still, a nice place, locally owned.

    Dovan was our server and did an excellent job of taking care of us three ladies. We hadn't seen each other in a while so he gave us the space while we caught up. We shared a flatbread appetizer. Two of the party had seafood dishes that they loved and I had the chicken again. All of us had enough for leftovers later in the week. It was half price wine night which made the evening all the more better! This was my fifth trip and have never been disappointed.

    My husband and I went there for date night and had a great meal together. This was our first time dinning there and it wont be our last. Everything was very well seasoned and portion size was good. We sat in the bar area but the patio doors were open so that had a good feel to it. Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu, so that really helped when making our dinner selection. All-N-All, I give it an... 8.

    I used to love a cedar grill hut the food and service has declined. Their salads which were great, now come with very little lettuce, and the chicken or meat come cold. Ypthey used to bring their bread and crackers right away ( and those are still great!), but now they don't, you have to ask for it, and they waited until 2 min. Before the food came.

    We had a lovely lunch awhile back (around Dec. 2013), and thought the food, décor, music over the sound system (ambiance), and service all excellent and relaxing. Yesterday (a Thurs with live music in the outdoor space), we went for dinner, were seated inside, and were still impressed with the wine, food and service. The Mezzocorona white wine was excellent. The "something" Crush red was very good. We both had the trout, and made substitutions for the sides easily. Our waiter was very nice and efficient. The food was excellent. We were seated at 6:30 PM, and the noise just kept building, until we were having to repeat ourselves to be understood. Excellent, if not inexpensive, for a special family meal, but suggest lunch, so you can talk.
