    Food was fabulous in all respects - appetizers, salads, mains and desserts were all excellent. From hostess to bar to wait staff - service was impeccable. But the noise was a problem - will likely keep us from returning.

    Always feel like I'm in NYC when I visit. it's intimate and classy. Our waiter was excellent and very attentive. Food was on the mark and the wine list has improved greatly. No music this time which made it easier to converse since it's pretty energetic anyway. Recommend a trip there.

    Downstairs. Gem we had the same waitress as last time & she rememvered us after 4 months she was very helpful when ordering for our 4 year old . we were out in 1 1/2?hrs but never felt rushed. Dinner was not inexpensive. But we'd go back again .they had a special of copper river salmon that's only available around the end if may. So it was nice that they took advantage of getting unusual finds like that !

    Menu is not extensive, but everything on it is prepared to very high standards. Most sides are a la carte, so keep that in mind. Noticed no salt or pepper shakers on tables, but also noticed that nobody at our table requested them. My Delmonico steak was done to a perfect medium rare. One of my table mates had walleye, and raved that it was the best he had ever eaten. Dining room is on the small side and a lot of hard surfaces mean that the noise level can make it difficult to communicate. Our waitress was attentive without being a pest.

    I've seldom spent more money and received so little in return as a dining experience . Ambience fantastic, location convenient, food average at best. We regularly dine at the many excellent restaurants we're blessed with in the Akron/Cleveland area. In this fine dining space, 150 falls well short of their competition.

    Very disappointed!Isn't what it used to be.Downtown used to be one of our absolute favorite places to go when visiting Hudson/Chagrin Falls.Don't think we will return unless they bring the other chef back...AND the menu.I will say service was wonderful...our server, host/manager and the head bartender/mixologist were all very gracious.However, we tried to have a conversation with the chef regarding the menu and he didn't like what we had to say at all...we were only making a suggestion...he didn't agree and walked away, instead of continuing the conversation like an adult.Very odd...and actually rude.The new menu is a bit limited...and not as creative as it used to be.All in all, this restaurant is definitely not the same...such a shame.

    Downtown 140 has consistently been a very favorite restaurant of mine for many years. It has everything you would want for a special night or a night you would hope to be special. It's romantic with great ambiance. But more importantly, the food is spectacular and the service is friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. The perfect place.

    We have visited Downtown140 many times but our latest visit will be our last. The menu offers far fewer choices than before. And the quality of what is being served has dropped. Among other things,my hanger steak was tough and arrived at room temperature. I had to ask two different people (we couldn't find our server) to bring the glass of wine I ordered with my meal. It finally arrived 15 minutes after the food. Out table was located along the walkway between the kitchen and server station which made the experience even less enjoyable. The cheese selection I ordered for dessert no longer features regional cheeses, according to our server, and they were not as good or as interesting as in the past. Overall, a disappointing night.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 3/5/2013
    Great meal here; we both ordered the catch of the day, Parrot Fish. Fresh and nicely grilled with a few veggies. Wine promotion by the glass at $8 per (a bit overpriced for Dante chardonnay). Cleveland Restaurant Menu is very different from the regular menu or the menu on line, so don't get your hopes up. Downtown 140 offers very good food, small portions, at slightly higher prices than others in town. Great atmosphere with a good piano player in the back area (away from the bar?). Fairly loud due to the barn stone foundation, brickwork and acoustics that result with very hard surfaces. Good dinner all around if you feel like a bit of a splurge.

    With a party of 10 we tried just about everything on the menu (cauliflower soup, duck pierogie, shrimp, cheese plate, terrine, scallops, beet ravioli, hanger steak, filet, chicken, cheesecake, and chocolate cake) and were impressed by every item we ordered. It is pretty hard to please 10 peoples’ palates (including one vegetarian), but Downtown 140 did. The dishes were tasty and portioned well. Our server was very attentive, even noticing it was the birthday of one of the diners, and placing a candle in her dessert. It is great to see a place that has chefs and wait staff that are passionate about their food and wine. We will be back! If you bored of the Cleveland scene it is worth the thirty minute drive down!

    We made reservations for my birthday, but the pleasant hostess informed us that our table was not ready when we arrived. Forty-five minutes later, we were finally seated. It was already 9:15. The late seating did impact our enjoyment. Desperately wanting their scallops, I was dismayed to learn that they had just sold out. If only we were seated on time. Similarly, the mood changes in the restaurant as the night progresses. More and more alcohol has reached the customers and one-by-one they try to out shout each other. The food arrived at 9:45 and was delicious, but we had little time or desire to sit and enjoy a cocktail or dessert and preferred a cozier, quieter, and more intimate locale.

    Not our best experience here. The place was crowded and loud, not the intimate setting we've experienced in passed visits. Our server was not knowledgeable about the menu, and couldn't help with our beer or wine selections. He ignored us for long periods of time. After a LONG wait, he came back to tell us that the wine we had selected was sold out, so we picked a different one. After a second LONG wait, we had already finished our salad and appetizer, and so we said forget the bottle, we just each ordered a glass. Imagine our surprise then when our tab included the pricey bottle that we never got. Too bad, this used to be one of our favorite special spots.

    Downtown 140 is a real gem. The menu changes a lot and is not extensive, so the chef concentrates on what he can do best. The server was attentive and cordial. The ambiance is great, although a bit cramped and noisy, due to the stone walls. We had one-day scallops, hanger steak and beet ravioli. Every dish was cooked and presented well. The dishes were flavorful and portioned perfectly. Downtown 140 is one of the best restaurants within 10 miles of Hudson (followed by Russo's and Blue Canyon). The restaurant is expensive, no save your cash and schedule a special occasion today.

    As a belated valentine's day night out, my husband and I got spa treatments and made reservations at Downtown 140. Since we love to cook, we requested the chef's table where we could see them at work. The staff were incredibly friendly and the food was delicious (we ordered the crab salad appetizer and the grouper and salmon entrees...amazing! It was great to chat with the chefs and even get to try some of their sides/dessert. It was perfect; thank you for a wonderful dining experience...we will be back!

    The restaurant is pretty crowded, and though we had reservations, we had to wait a while at the bar, which was full, with little room to stand and wait. The bartender, however, was extremely friendly and attentive, and even went out of her way to have the kitchen hold the last of the specials for us so we would be able to order it when our table was ready. Our server was also very friendly and attentive. The food was incredible. The menu is extremely meat and seafood heavy though, and as I am much more of a vegetable person, there were very few things to choose from. However, what I did order was delicious. My date is a steak lover, and the special was a giant bone-in steak that he said was delicious. Dessert and coffee were amazing.

He was noticeably absent, our entree's finally arrived, mine was rare, another's fish was undercooked, sent it back, never mentioned our dinners being so late....never offered to comp us dessert, which we did order. When the bill arrived we were never told thank you, no apology made. They definitely score very low on service and had more than one opportunity to redeem themselves.

    The food has really fallen off over the past year or so. Our appetizers were overcooked to the point of being indelible. My snapper was overdone but less so. Hangar steak was decent. The creme brûlée was so-so. The service was good, and the ambience is very nice.

    Overpriced for what you get and it may have been because it was valentines day and they were busy but everything we got was over cooked: lobster croquette, salmon, and scallops. Best part of the meal was the wine! We passed on dessert. "This evening we have 2 chocolate covered strawberries and three scoops of icecream for $15" given what we saw, we knew that was going to be tiny as well so we went somewhere else after to get dessert.

    Dined on 2/9/2013
    We hadn't been to Downtown 140 for a couple of years but always remembered it as our favorite in NE Ohio. Unfortunately, it's slipped. The poor experience started with a broken door lock on the single men's room...walking in on someone is not a great way to start the night. We were seated 45 mins after our reservation time (made two weeks in advance). Our waiter was solid, but we didn't get bread, our water filled regularly nor our plates cleared quickly. Four different menu items were sold out, the dessert menu was pathetic (4 options, including $8 ice cream, at a high end place is just sad), and one of our fish entrees was pretty much flavorless. Overall, a total disappointment. Maybe they should bring back the old executive chef.

    I've been going to Downtown 140 for a while now and the last couple of times I went for dinner it was a disappointment. I love the ambience which is likely why I gave it another shot. The last couple of times I went the bread was stale and the sorbets/ice cream for dessert were a giant disappointment- the chocolate ice cream actually tasted like it was past its prime. Hudson has a lot of choices for dinner and if Downtown 140 wants to continue to compete in this space (more upscale dining) then I would suggest they up their game and take it to the level of quality of a year ago. Not sure what's happened -- not sure if it's under new ownership or management, but this place has definitely taken a nose dive.

    Cozy and upscale setting - just as pictured in ad. Service was attentive and professional although server was a little light in explaining tastes of menu items and unfamiliar wines. Wine list is very good, and owner/bartender(?) had an exceptional knowledge of the wines. Excellent hanger steak and scallops (with oxtail sauce?); duck pirogi was fluffy, rich and tasty. We had difficulty finding "140 Main St."; small sign perpendicular to road was not well lit. Restaurant is in basement below two boutique shops. Would have helped in restaurant notes to indicate substantial parking and main entrance is in rear of building. We drove fifty miles to visit and very much enjoyed the dining experience.

Anyone who has not heard him play pop and jazz is in for a treat. He plays requests and plays at a level that you can also carry on a conversation. I dined at the Carlyle in NYC last week. I'd say the our experience at Downtowm 140 was even better.
