Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed our food and service from Jackie our waitress. It was a good evening and the valet parking was excellent. Our Son and daughter was in town and we wanted them to enjoy the night out."

  • "Serenissima - just like Venice! Amazing quality beside our beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park, with everything but a gondola on our canal! Valet parking and the throne-like chair in the vestibule prepare for aristocratic treatment, with photos that recall the location's history. Perfect waiter coped admirably with a computer problem. Enjoyed a very Slow Food style. Impressive wine list spans many Italian regions. Half portion of Venetian seafood risotto as first course and then stuffed cod over polenta with asparagus. Exquisite! Just enough room left for espresso & dessert. Waiter delivered some delicious biscotti with a little pot of chocolate & a tiny chocolate "Happy Birthday" message. Divine! "

  • "An ideal spot for an anniversary. The service was outstanding and our server Amy was one of the best ever. Never had to ask for service, it just happened at the right time. Timing of the meal was perfect. I would recommend for special occasions or for any reason. We will be back soon. "

  • "My husband and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and were so happy that we chose LockKeepers. From the moment we valeted our car until we left, we had outstanding service. All of the staff were so polite, and attentive; the food was beyond delicious and the portions were so generous we continued to enjoy it the next day:) The pace was so relaxing and we loved every single moment of being there. Thank you."

  • "Great ambiance and decor, excellent service and excellent food. Fillet Mignon medium + c, cooked perfectly, melted in my mouth, paired with a Montepulciano side of asparagus and potato pancake. Fresh bread with home made tapenade was delicious. spinach salad with caramelized onions and some crispy topping was not to my taste at all. I did no eat it though the presentation was well done. Had steak tartar and eggplant rollatini for started which were excellent. They brought an antipasto which we did not order but was excellent as well. Definitely n the list for next vista to the area. Highly recommend."

  • "Had a very good dinner. I had the Bell and Evans chicken breast, husband had the pork chop. The chicken was delicious, but I wouldn't order it again, as it was still just a chicken breast , but cooked nicely. That was my choice, my fault. The spinach that came with it was cooked to perfection. Husband was very pleased with his pork chop. We had calamari, and it was delicious. Tirimisu was the best I have ever had. We will return."

  • "We booked an evening at Lockeepers after hearing about the holiday decor. We had been there before for our anniversary and loved it so thought why not return for Christmas. The decorations were pretty basic but the important part the food and service was excellent as always. Would I make a special trip for Christmas again? Probably not. Would I make a special trip just for the food? Absolutely."

  • "While the food here is spectacular, there were many things that led to a very poor experience. For starters the music choice in a fine dinning restaurant just does not fit (when we were there Duffy's Mercy was playing). Music was to fast and rocky for a fine dinning restaurant. In addition, when we got to the restaurant there was only one other couple in the whole dinning room and they sat us right next to them and they had a small child that was very disruptive and loud. No one made an effort to ask them to keep the kid in his seat or anything. In addition, the waiters and waitresses stood off to the side and giggled and laughed all the time in a small group, ruining the atmosphere. Was so disappointed."

  • "We have dined at Lockkeepers for lunch and dinner and we always have a wonderful meal. Lunch favorites are the calamari and pizza. Last weekend we had Veal Marsala (not a morsel left on the plate) and the Arctic char special (great flavor and texture). The amaretto pear martini was especially yummy. Cheesecake is always good. Looking forward to our next meal there!"

  • "I have dine at Lockkeepers many times. Their bar is serves great cocktails. Wine selection is very broad. The seafood risotto is always an excellent choice with an added piece of class (3 oz lobster tail on top). Bone in ribeye is always great and well prepared and presented. Try a homemade pasta as a side. You will not be disappointed. Only order the Bufala Moz. Caprese salad when beafsteak tomatoes are in season."

  • "We come here often as it is one of my favorite restaurants and even though we know the have so many customers that they cannot remember everyone, they always greet us as if we're old friends. The service is impeccable, they strive to make sure you are happy with every detail. When we were there this past Friday, the dessert I ordered was not what I had expected. Since I had made a substitution, I thought maybe there was some confusion, so we asked. There was nothing wrong with the dessert just not what I had expected. Even though I told them everything was fine, one of the managers brought out something a little different for me including a treat he knew to be one of my favorites. One of the many reasons I love this place"

  • "After a hectic few weeks with little time to ourselves, we went out to dinner - just the two of us. We had a booth which was perfect. My wife enjoyed one of the evening specials and she raved about it. It was a perfect evening just the two of us. Romance, conversation and good food after 45 years of marriage. Can't beat that. Only complaint, would have liked a 6:00 or 6:30 reservation. We had to go at 5:30."

  • "Once again, Lockkeepers has stepped up above the rest. Although there was a slight glitch in our reservation (our requested, manager-confirmed-that-morning 'regular' booth was not available), things were handled smoothly and graciously, We were seated at a table in the corner of the bar. The server was friendly and prompt; the food came hot as appropriate and timed perfectly without rush or delay; there was a question of spicing on one of the soups which she handled well; the mussels appetizer was generous and exceptional; our "favorites" were as good as anticipated; and the evening was topped by a special dessert from the kitchen. Could not have been better. Wish we lived closer..."

  • "We had a 7pm reservation on a Friday and were nicely greeted by the hostess and seated promptly. The restaurant is really lovely and the bar scene looked sharp and lively. Our meals were good but our pleasant waiter was not up to par. He never refilled our water glasses, failed to bring the cheese he offered to grate on our pasta and did not bring a bowl for our mussel shells."
