Diner Reviews
  • "I had the opportunity to try Cowell & Hubbard a few days ago, and it was an inadequately surreal experience. The restaurant lacked any sense of a cohesive theme, in menu or décor, and the food was simple, dull, and uninspired. You would expect better quality and execution from the person who owns L'Albatross, but unfortunately Zack Bruell seems to have more restaurants than time. The one upside was the staff, who were always professional and polite, if not a bit aloof. There are so many better reasons to dine downtown – don’t make this one of them. I wouldn’t dine again."

  • "Very good food, reasonable prices, great service. We went there prior to attending the Allen Theatre. The server was very conscious of getting us to the show on time, without rushing. We will return for sure for a more leisurely dining experience."

  • "This is a great place to go before the theatre....the food and service are consistently good. I would highly recommend server, Loretta. She is amazing!"

  • "Our 3d visit, first in 2014. We're very surprised to see a limited menu, and some strange choices. Ended up with a salad and first course for dinner. Used to love the choices and variety of the old menu (from frog legs to sweetbreads etc). Would continue to come once a year when going to theater, but choices too limited for more than that. This is a great lakes city-where is the perch, walleye etc ? Service was fine, as we're wine and drinks. Love Zack's restaurants, but this would move from one or two to five."

  • "The food was delicious and the service was great. We had a table by the window and it was fun watching all the people walk by on euclid Avenue."

  • "We enjoyed an early meal prior to a performance at the Ohio Theater. We were lucky to be seated by the windows which looks out on a vibrant street scene. Except for boar being off the menu that evening (and one of us did consider ordering boar) everything we ordered was available and well prepared. We especially enjoyed the cheese tray and the knowledgeable server. My spouse was able to taste a new beer prior to ordering (he decided against the beer and went for wine instead)."

  • "Cowell & Hubbard is our go-to place before the show! With a menu that offers something for everyone at the table. Whether you want meat, seafood, vegetarian or gluten-free - this kitchen has it all!"

  • "My husband & I had a wonderful time dining here before catching our 7:30 show at the Allen Theatre. We knew it would be a little expensive, but felt the quality & quantity of food was well worth the price. The service was excellent. All of the wait staff was very attentive & polite."

  • "Popular with the theater crowd. Servers did an excellent job of keeping a nice pace to get everyone to the show on time. The scallop entreé was exquisite. Fantastic wines by the glass selections. I would visit here again if I come back to Cleveland."

  • "This was our first and probably last visit to this restaurant. Made reservations far in advance and asked for a nice table because we were also bringing friends from out of town. They seated us at a booth at the end of the bar, not even on the dining room and it was loud and congested. The good was just okay, not worth the money. The service staff was very good, however. The most memorable part of our night was the valet guy, he was exceptionally nice!"

  • "Had the North Atlantic Cod for lunch and it was wonderful. The tastes and textures of the cod, farro, and grilled asparagus complemented each other extremely well. The presentation was very artistic. It was a very impressive place with a great atmosphere."

  • "my first visit was June 11 and found it so good I returned June 17. The food and service is outstanding. The Host and server showed interest in us -- something that is often overlooked in restaurants. The olive oil served with fresh rustic bread is available for purchase and believe me, is as fresh and aromatic as the first crush in Italy. Definitely a new favorite."

  • "Had a very enjoyable meal at Cowell & Hubbard - I had the pasta special and my father had the hanger steak. If there was one complaint it was that the wine pour was a little scimpy - for a glass that cost $15.00 would have expected more."

  • "We found this restaurant through opentable.com and decided to give it a try. The service was great and the food was absolutely amazing!!! We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys French food. This restaurant is right next to Playhouse Square, so it's a great place to go before your show."

  • "Good food and service, but too noisy to hold much conversation"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The "tag team" service was outstanding. Our servers were efficient, friendly and fun. Our meals were excellent (hangar steak cooked perfectly and braised beef shoulder tender and delicious). We went before a show and they made sure we had a great experience and got us out on time."

  • "Great place to celebrate after our high school senior's commencement ceremony just down the street at the State Theater. Great ambiance! Superior food and service. Very nice, quiet enough to talk booth for 6. will definitely go back for a regular dinner anytime."

  • "The food was absolutely delicious! The service was top-notch!"

  • "Dined at Cowell & Hubbard for the second time as I had a good experience first time around. This visit was a big disappointment as both entrees we chose were heavily salted. The high rating is certainly not deserved and the relatively high prices for the very poor dining experience will lead us not to return to this restaurant."

  • "Excellent food, superb service. We were initially seated under the A/C blower but our server graciously moved us to a more comfortable table. Escargot was the best I've ever had!"

  • "Third time here and it didn't disappoint. The waitress was amazing and gave great feedback/recommendation. We landed on the pork appetizer, tomato salad and pasta du jour. Delightful. We will be back. "

  • "We were going to a show at the Palace. I thought this would be as good as Zack Burell's l'Albatros. I ordered Wild Boar w/risotto. The boar was gross, fatty and in edible. The risotto was crunchy! They attended to me right away and said they were trying something new. The staff was wonderful. They took my meal off the bill. I would have tried something else but we had to go. I was very excited to eat there. It just didn't work out."
    Dined on 5/30/2014
  • "We had been before and had a great experience and great food. Our food was OK but not special. Salad was over salty and cod was very bland. Service was fine until we wanted to leave and couldn't locate our server for 20" to get the check even though the restaurant was nearly empty. Maybe our expectations were high from the first time we went there."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Why do you ask people to rate noise level as quiet, moderate, or energetic? Where is "too loud" or "difficult to carry on a conversation"? Except for the noise level (which admittedly is not as bad as some local restaurants) I have nothing but compliments for both the food and the service. (But what is this business of plopping a poached egg on everything?)"

  • "My wife and I went for our anniversary and took our grandson and his fiancé for his 21st birthday. Everyone was absolutely delighted with the entire experience. Three of us are vegetarians and they not only had several choices but would accommodate us with a veggie variation from their regular menu. Every dish was a winner, beautifully displayed and so delicious. Desserts were a wonderful end to a great meal. The only less than fantastic was the hazelnut cheese cake. "

  • "The menu was interesting and the food was very good. I would go back. "

  • "This is one of those creative chef / bartender restaurants where the food and drinks don't taste as interesting as the menu descriptions. Its too bad as the food and drink prep was mostly spot on (fries a little over done) and the wait staff was great."

  • "I was disappointed. Got the scallops. Overwhelming horseradish flavor Bread, olive oil, salt still the best around"

  • "The five of us went to Cowell and Hubbard before Jersey Boys and it was delightful.Service was fabulous, our waiter knew everything about the wines, food,plus desserts. We enjoyed the dinner so much we came back after the play had dessert. We were not disappointed by anything. I will be recommending this restaurant to my friends and look forward to going back there soon without going to a play. Thank you Zach Bruell for all you do for Cleveland 's food experience. "

  • "We always enjoy our dinner at Cowell & Hubbard before the show. Service is relaxed and we always make it in time for the curtain. The only thing that kept me from an all 5 rating, was that the thai soup that I've had several times in the past was overly salted. We will be back."
