Diner Reviews
  • "Food was delicious, service was top notch, all in all was a very pleasurable experience."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "The wait staff was attentive to our every need from the beginning to the end of the meal. Some of the best service we have received of late. However, we ordered the Atlantic cod and Braised beef upon recommendation from the waiter and both entrees were a total disappointment. The fish had the extremely fishy taste of a very cheap piece of frozen seafood. The beef dish (including the broccollini and starch) was swimming in a brown water like liquid that made most of the meal inedible. Our appetizer (pork stack) was great and we enjoyed the cocktails. Would not waste our money on entrees here again."

  • "We went there prior to the show at the State Theatre. The food and service was excellent. The staff was very attentive to our needs. Would definitely go back again."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I really enjoyed all of the food here and the dishes definitely had a unique twist that differed from other restaurants but was consistent throughout Cowell & Hubbard's menu. The dishes were delicious but definitely on the heavy side. If you were looking for a light meal perhaps share courses?"

  • "An interesting variety of salads, sandwiches and entrees, and a unique house drink menu. Good service, and a good spot for a nice lunch in the heart of the theatre district."

  • "Impressive knowledgable server, great food, love this place. Chef Jeff Thomas knocks it out of the park!"

  • "We enjoyed our dining experience at Cowell & Hubbard. Our drinks, meals & service were excellent. We enjoyed sitting at the window & observing the activity on Euclid Ave."

  • "Great service - quick and efficient. The waitress was very friendly. Food tasted good and was presented nicely. I would probably return for a special occasion."

  • "Food was stellar as well as service. We had an absolutely amazing time!"

  • "Being foodie wannabees, my wife rated Sunday's Pasta Du Jour as one of her top three meals ever...and I concur. Overall fantastic experience for us!"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "Love that they had specific vegan entrees. I did also try the mushroom ravioli in pea broth with poached egg. Simply the best ever!(not vegan). My husband had the escargot and proclaimed them the best he's ever had. We had amazing service and food."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I picked this restaurant because it was part of a group owned by a James Beard nominated chef. Nothing was horrible, but it was in no way anywhere close to what a Jamed Beard experience should be. The beef dish was drowning in olive oil and the gazpacho was inedible. Once my father-in-law told our server that his pasta was too salty, the service became almost non-existent."

  • "We were interested in dining close to the Ohio theater last weekend. On my sister's recommendation, we tried Cowell & Hubbard. Everything from the greeting we received, to the staff's attention, to the food and drinks, was fabulous! I am looking forward to my next visit!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Food not cooked, tables squashed, drink orders missed. Not terribly expensive, but not terribly good."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Awesome meal and service was superb. Will definitely return."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Appetizer of mushroom pirogi rocked ... Hangar steak salad was so - so... Ordered steak medium; it was rare ... Waitress saw the blue/rare meat I left on the plate ( greens we're nice) and clearly chose to ignore. She immediately brought my bill w/o asking if I'd like coffee or dessert ( I would have liked dessert) ... For a slow lunchtime crowd service was incredibly subpar - and this sort of place should know the difference between rare and medium..."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We had a great pretheater dinner here on 7/24. Both loved the seafood dumpling appetizer, the lobster sauce was wonderful. The meal was consistently excellent through all 3 courses, which seems to be rare these days. Service was very attentive, but the place was pretty quiet on a Thursday evening. I suspect it could be noisy/hectic on the weekend."

  • "One of Cleveland's best chefs and one of Cleveland's best restaurants"

  • "My husband and I went here for the first time for dinner to celebrate his birthday on Saturday. We had the pork stack for an app, I had the Cod and he had the bison tenderloin. All were exceptional! We finished dinner with the blonde from the dessert menu and that was delicious. as always His resturants are too notch."

  • "We had a wonderful time at C&H! The food was so delicious!! We did get our salad before our wine got to the table. Not sure why it took so long to get the wine, but we eventually got it. Good place to go after a Playhouse Square event."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We love Cowell but they were not prepared for the after dinner rush for Seinfeld. I had to go get our drinks after they hadn't arrived for over 20 mins. Even after this, the service continued to be terrible all night. Very unusual but disappointing as we had brought friends who hadn't been before."

  • "I have been to Cowell and Hubbard several times now for several occasions. Whether it was with a large group before a show at Playhouse Square or for casual dinner with just my Wife, the food and service was great. Price is good for the quality. Their one fault is the bread that's served ahead of the meal. It's a nice hearty crusty bread, but by the time they serve it has become soft and chewy. I still eat a bunch of it though!"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Decent menu, not a huge variety, but enough. Expected a few more specials, but really only one for each category. Acceptable portions, creative menu, food very well prepared and arrive on time and piping hot. They have gluten free bread available and were very flexible in adapting the menu and changing side items to make the meal gluten free. The only complaint was the slow arrival of our drinks, waiting 10-15 minutes for each drink was a bit too much. Not entirely sure if it was our server or the bar's responsibility, as drinks arrived from both. My husband commented that with the mark up on alcohol, they are missing an opportunity. His second beer arrived just before dessert. Valet, walk to theater a few buildings away."

  • "I thoroughly enjoyed my dinner selection, North Atlantic Cod. After reading many reviews on the restaurant, this particular choice kept getting recommended. I figured it had to be good and it was. Beautiful presentation, tasty grains/asparagus and cod/with sauce. Adequate portion. I accompanied it with a salad that was "okay". My husband had difficulty selecting a dinner choice because he likes more traditional dinner choices and the chef is very creative and selects unusual ingredients."

  • "We had dinner following a show at The Playhouse. The service was wonderful, the food was spectacular!"

  • "We live in AZ, but used to live in Cleveland and know Zack Bruell's reputation for excellence. His newest restaurant did not disappoint us. From the greeting - prompt and friendly, to the wait staff - she was was friendly, courteous, helpful (suggested a fine wine for my wife), to the food everything was first class. We shared a mushroom-stuffed raviolis with Parmesan in chicken broth appetizer which was wonderful. My wife's scallops were done just right - not too tough, not undercooked. My hanger steak was prepared as ordered, and my pommes frites were perfect. We shared a moulton chocolate dessert with vanilla ice cream and wish we had room for a second. We're looking forward to a return visit."

  • "We were the only guests. Menu was not inspired, food was warmed over in microwave. Not at all like our past experiences with this (usually) excellent restaurant. Will give it another chance, but not on a Sunday."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We had dined at this restaurant in 2013 and had a much better experience so I'm sorry to say that we were very disappointed in our lackluster experience. Apparently if you want to not have a 3 hour meal, you need to let your server know. We were not headed to a broadway show afterwards but did have plans and were hoping to be in and out within an hour and a half or so. We were interested in a cheese selection but ended up cancelling after waiting for too long. The appetizers were great - but that's about it. The entrees were very bland. Our server was really friendly but it seemed like she was swamped (even though she had someone shadowing her). I had previously thought all of Zack's restaurants were excellent (except for Table 45)."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We had a lovely meal in a peaceful, sophisticated environment. The servers were attentive but not obtrusive and the staff is all aware that you might need to be heading out to the theater so they help you plan accordingly. The food was excellent, portions appropriate and specials were interesting. Well done."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I was so looking forward to dinner at Cowell and Hubbard. The food was disappointing. I had the pasta of the day, recommended by our server. It was mushy. I had the seafood dumplings, which I thought (mistakenly?) was a special of the house. They were just bad- taste and texture. Our server, though there were only 5 tables occupied (it is a large space) on Friday night at 7, was not particularly attentive. The energy in the room was non existent!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."

  • "I love your restaurant! My wife and I try to come to Cowell & Hubbard at least once a month. The experience is never disappointing!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
