Diner Reviews
  • "Second trip to Hodges. Sat in the back room under a skylight and a little farther from the very loud music that plays in the bar. Nice. The Scallops were cooked perfectly, a little translucent but with a nice crust. The Gnocchi were also browned a little, and the plate was completed with beef cheeks, red wine demi glace, and heirloom carrots. A lot of flavors and textures in one plate! I had hanger steak with Polenta, which had great beefy flavor and a nice crust around medium-rare. Having Fat Head on tap just ices the cake. It's about a mile walk from Playhouse Square, but worth the exercise!"

  • "Second time here, first time for lunch. Went off hours and nearly had the restaurant to ourselves. The menu selections were great, and so was the service."

  • "Chris and the staff do not disappoint-amazing food and drinks, service is great! There is a reason that Chris Hodge is one of the best chef's in the country. I say kid friendly as long as your kids like good food and know how to act, if you are the lame type of parent who has children that run around the tables and like to eat McDonalds or Applebees-stay away please!"

  • "We ordered drinks, burger, and a steak and both entrees took too long to be served at room temperature. I would not recommend eating there before an event on a Sunday night. They did not seem to have enough servers and the kitchen should have run the food out when it was hot."

  • "My husband and I were meeting friends for dinner before they attended the Billy Joel concert at the Q. Naturally, since it fell on a Tuesday, it make sense to take advantage of Hodge's two for $40 special. Everything was fantastic, the food the wine, the service. The only drawback we experienced was the Cesar salad. My husband requested no anchovies, and it showed up with them. He asked for a new salad and the server returned very shortly thereafter with a "new" salad. My husband believes they just removed the anchovies and returned the same salad to him, since he could still taste the fish. He wasn't able to finish it. All things considered, it was a good value and we will likely return, just avoid the Cesar salad."

  • "We walked over on a cold, early spring day and felt immediately warm and welcome. It was a Sunday, so fairly quiet but not empty. We sat for hours at our table and noshed and drank - some things were great (the scallops, the spicy lamb sausage), some things were good, and one item was inedible (blue crab hushpuppies were extremely over-salted) but it was so relaxing and the service was just the right amount of attentive without hovering that we all left happy and content."

  • "The renovation of a cleveland landmark is impressive. Nice decor and comfortable seating. Food was good and service excellent. Would like to experience the patio if it ever gets warm in cleveland"

  • "The hanger steak, scallops, and salmon were all cooked perfectly. We also had the beet salad, goat cheese tart, and the hanky lanky. Will definitely come her again. Nice job."

  • "I wanted to take my sister and brother-in-law to a restaurant downtown so they could experience our night life. My husband has been to many of the Cleveland restaurants and was impressed with Hodges. The biggest problem we had was finding it! The address is on Euclid but we couldn't see it. I finally had to call them to find it."

  • "I went here with a group after a cavs game because of it's proximity to the Q. I am so glad we found it on open table! The food was outstanding! We got the deviled eggs and mussels for appetizers and I would not be able to pick a favorite. The deviled eggs were the best I've ever had and the sweet curry sauce on the mussels rivaled the best thai restaurants in town. The four dishes we got were the hangar steak, scallops, osso bucco, and stuffed chicken. All four were outstanding! I know zinc didn't last long but I truly hope that hodges does!"

  • "Went early on Sunday before a show. Waiter was very attentive to our need to leave for the show, and to a food allergy to chili peppers. Onion Tart, salad, hush puppies, and tater tot Poutine were all fine. Wine list good enough and some reasonably-priced wine that was interesting. Price not too crazy. Only complaint might be that it's not easy to avoid rich "comfort food" style dishes. That didn't bother me, but wife mentioned it. We're going back, anyway."

  • ". Have dined here previously and enjoyed a wonderful meal. This time dined with 5 girlfriends from out of town and almost all commented how salty the food tasted, including myself. Embarrassing for me, I had highly recommended eating at Hodges"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Everything went wrong with service: we were sat and didn't see a server for at least 10 min, drinks, salads and entrees all showed up at the same time (after a long wait), and no cornbread until after entrees were delivered. The timing was all off. On the plus side, the cornbread is worth the trip alone, and the crispy brussel sprouts that accompanied my overlooked salmon were the best I've ever had. Love the atmosphere and fun, hip decor."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Great service. I had the Bay of Fundy Salmon with brussel sprouts, and it was delicious. A friend had the salmon patty appetizer, and she said they were the best she'd ever had. The cornbread is so good, that we asked for some to go. The only downside was that we were seated upstairs where it was very warm and the ambience wasn't the best. Overall, very good experience."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "The menu was unique! It was refreshing not to have the same old choices as every where else! The service was great and they had a reasonable wine list too! We would definitely go again!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We ordered off the Restaurant Week menu and the salmon was good, the beef cheek was okay, but the fried chicken was A-MAZE-ING!!! Would go back just for that. Server was great too: attentive but not pushy."

  • "We had a 7:00 pm reservation on Saturday, March 8. We were very surprised at how empty the place was. We have been to Hodge's in the past, shortly after they opened and we were excited to to try to again when we were in town. The whole experience left something to be desired. Our server was not the best, no sense of urgency and his timing was a bit irritating, a snails pace would have been faster. The only redeeming quality to the evening was the apple cider braised pork osso buco. The lobster salad was good, but lacking flavor and needed salt. We had heard from friends that this restaurant was losing it's appeal, and we were so sad to see this was true. It just doesn't seem to have as much creativity and integrity as in the past."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "we were looking forward to trying something different and came away very disappointed. It was not crowded at all, but the service was slow. People at other tables that were seated after us actually had drinks and were receiving there meals right when we received our first drink. When our food arrived, I received the wrong order. Rather pricey for what it is. We will not be back."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We have been wanting to go to Hodge's for a while and just never got around to it. That was a big mistake. We enjoyed one of the best dining experiences in the city of Cleveland. We will definitely keep Hodge's on our list of restaurants to frequent."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "This was my first time at Hodge's which was recommend by a friend & was not disappointed the food was divine & the waitress who's name is Robin was knowledge about the menu & the wine. I wish the tater tots were GF :( Will definitely return to Hodge's & their comfy red leather chairs:)"
    Dined on 3/1/2014
  • "Very loud as most restaurants are these days. Staff beyond reproach. Portions huge, we could have shared one. I loved it and can hardly wait to go back to try out their patio. What? You say. Yes! There's a patio off the street in downtown CLE!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "The meal was delightful and made more enjoyable by the waitress. I watched her handle a Diva B___h that couldn't decide what she wanted, after she changed the appetizer and her drink (but she was eating her tolerant dates appetizer), and main entree ( I suspect the beef was either too salty or peppery or evenly cooked for her) . Unfortunately we did not stay for their dessert course. The meal for us was great and we look forward to returning."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "A friend and I had dinner at Hodge's on Friday night and we were both completely impressed. We began with the tater tots because we had heard good things about them. They were an inspired take on poutine; fun and truly tasty. We both had the sea scallops as an entree. They were served in with beef cheeks and potato gnocchi, which seems like an odd combination but it was completely delicious. Our only regret was that we were too full, from the tater tots, to finish. Our server was sweet and efficient and other staff members were friendly. Overall, we had a great experience and will definitely go back."

  • "Went for the restaurant week special, ended up just getting their normal 2 for $40 deal and buying a few extra things. We spent about $68 doing their special and getting 2 extra snacks, 2 extra appetizers, & the bottle of wine instead of the desserts & appetizer that we would have had with restaurant week. We got: Hanky panky w/ chorizo, cheddar, & tomato jam; deviled egg w/ fried chicken mayo & hot sauce; cornbread w/ bourbon butter; blue crab hushpuppies w/ old bay'onnaise; mussels in coconut curry broth w/ cilantro & Korean sausage; goat cheese tart w/ arugala; roasted chicken breast stuffed w/ sausage, topped with salsa Verde, over green lentils, root veggies, & cippolini onion; & pork osso bucco over a white bean cassoulet. All great!"

  • "Tried for the first time during Restaurant Week. Great, comfortable ambiance. Mussels were delicious and very large portion for an appetizer (enough for two). Great value! Great spot for Downtown dining. Exceptional service - friendly and efficient. Will definitely return!"
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "More than a few drinks or beers were not in stock. Appetizers were tasty but too small. My riveted was cooked to perfection, the chicken dish was plain Jane and three of our party had the scallop special which was nothing special (three good sized scallops), cooked and presented in a way that lacked pizzazz. Overall lackluster presentation and experience for the money."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Food wasn't fresh. My salad tasted like it was sitting out for awhile and the leaves looked "tired" the lime for my drink was so dry and old I couldn't squeeze the juice out for flavor. Mussels were okay and scallops were decet, but small portions for an entree. Service was good. Just bad food quality."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "It was a great evening at Hodge's! It was an amazing meal! Our server recommended The Feast for two, fillet, foie gras, marrow, asparagus and fingerlings. It was enough for 3-4! All was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We can't wait to go back!"

  • "The food was ok. I was expecting much more from the experience, especially at the prices we paid. It seemed like the food was trying too hard to be pretentious when it should have simpler. I would have like to have seen a high-end food truck experience. I am a foodie and when you hear that a food truck owner created a restaurant - you expect more than a copy cat fine dining experience."

  • "It was so hot in the restaurant it made our evening un-enjoyable. We told our server we were too hot--she laughed. We practically undressed and were still sweating. The food was not as good as the other times we have visited and we were surprised there were so few patrons in the restaurant."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "We were a group of 4 women, who wanted to try EVERYTHING on the menu! Everything sounded like it would be great and had very interesting combinations. We had 4 appetizers, 4 entrees, and 2 desserts... all were shared and all were excellent. The hankie pankies were definitely a favorite at the table. The scallops, tater tots, goat cheese/squash gnocchi... wow! It was relatively quiet in the restaurant, probably because of the bad weather. We had a very attentive server. The only con I can say is that the mixed drinks were not that great-- they were okay, not as exciting as the food-- and the majority of our first choice drinks like their special punch, they had run out of it. It was an outstanding restaurant. Highly recommend!!"

  • "Hodge's is our favorite restaurant. They provide complementary cornbread and butter in a cute little skillet, which is always good. This time we shared the pumpkin bisque as an appetizer, which was delicious; much better than a pumpkin bisque we had at another place. My vegetarian fiancee had the autumn squash salad for her meal, which was easily big enough to fill that role. I had the salmon, which was delicious, and came with fried brussels sprouts in a sauce, which were also delicious. We've never had a bad meal at Hodge's."

  • "This was our second time at Hodge's and we enjoyed our dinner with another couple. However, when we were there 10 months ago a small serving of freshly made piping hot complimentary tater tots were brought to our table. It was a nice touch and I was expecting the same gesture this time but now the tots are only available as an order, not complimentary. The hush puppies were fabulous and the cornbread yummy. Fun place but bring back the tots!"

  • "Over all great meal and evening out. My wife and I dine out a lot, but this might be one of our last nights out in a little while as we are due any day now with our first child. So glad we chose to go back to Hodge's, as we hadn't been there almost since it opened. Glad to see that it is still thriving and to go there is to find out why."
