Diner Reviews
  • "How nice it was to walk into this beautiful restaurant on a grey and rainy day. We found friendly people very good, well prepared food and super service, (thank you Nathan). We had a wonderful time."

  • "This was the second time our group has met here. The restaurant is warm and welcoming and never pushed to get us out. The food options satisfied the range of dietary preferences amongst us. It is conveniently located to both east, west and south siders."

  • "Totally enjoyed a deliciously prepared meal in a beautiful environment, as well as wine and Lock 39 drink - to celebrate our anniversary. We each tried a special of the evening and there were no disappointments! Food well-presented, well-prepared, and every attention to detail. Professional service, dessert to go, and will most definitely return!"

  • "We had a wonderful evening! The food was great- the best Italian food we've had in a while! We loved the home-made pastas, and the steaks were great as well. The stuffed pepper appetizer was especially popular among our group. We usually dine on the East side of cleveland or downtown, but it is well worth the drive here for dinner. Servers were very attentive and friendly. We will be making our way back soon!"

  • "This past Monday we were blown away not only by the food, but by the exceptional service. The avocado and shrimp appetizer was light and refreshing, and the caprese salad was deliciously fresh. The summer black truffle fettucine is hands down in the top three most delicious pasta dishes I have had in my lifetime. You can smell the black truffle in the dish from across the table. We also had the gnocchi which was outstanding, alongside the lobster ravioli, which was creamy, decadent, and full of lobster. The chocolate budino is the ultimate chocolate lovers dessert and it never disappoints. The serving staff is friendly, helpful, and extremely skilled. I absolutely love Lockkeepers and cannot wait to dine there again in the very near future!"

  • "We have been to Lockkeepers many times, and we can honestly say we have never had a bad experience there. The staff is pleasant and courteous and the food is always top notch. From their seafood to steaks it is all worth trying."

  • "We went for my fiance's birthday and had an amazing time. The food was phenomenal and beautifully presented. Our server was attentive, friendly, and knowledgeable. We sat at a table outside and loved the atmosphere."

  • "Our waitress Megan was attentive and professional on a busy Friday night. My husband had the bone in ribeye and I the gnocchi. The steak came a little bit too rare and was whisked away and back again in the blink of an eye, accompanied by fresh sides and garnish as well as apologies. The steak(I had a bite!)was one of the best that we've ever had in a restaurant. For an appetizer, we tried the calamari which was crispy on the outside but buttery tender on the inside and tossed with olives and sun-dried tomatoes...yum!, what a great combination. We shared a huge piece of delicious tiramisu for dessert. We also enjoyed our handcrafted cocktails, one made with house made limoncello. Mmmm! All in all a successful dining experience."

  • "Took my girlfriend here for our 2 year anniversary. Food was brought out at right time, in right sized portions and cooked very well. The ambiance of this restaurant is very special. The wine list is one of the lost extensive I've ever seen! the menu is simple and could stand to add a few options, but what they do have is wonderful and a variety. A small complaint would be the size of some of the compliments to entrees."

  • "My wife and I visited Lockkeepers June 7th. We have one of the best dining experiences we've ever had. We would recommend the server Omar to everyone. He really took care of us and knew the menu extremely well. He was great at recommending items to us when we asked. The food was outstanding. Everything is freshly made there and you can tell when you eat it. As an appetizer we would recommend the Tuna Tartar! If any of you out there have the opportunity to go to Lockkeepers please go. You will not be disappointed."

  • "Service could not be faulted. Our server, Jackie, was one of the most professional we have had in long time. The food choices were excellent. Food was well presented and prepared at a level worthy of a five rating. Only complaint was an odd and somewhat off putting odor that wafted by on occasion. Our server did her best to track down the origin and did offer to move us to a different location. All in all, great experience."

  • "Reserving a table in the bar area for 8 people was a great idea for a birthday happy hour get together ! Our service was impeccable and I applaud our server, Coral, who waited on us. With us all on a different drink rotation and some ordering there great happy hour food and some ordering off the dinner menu, she did a great job."

  • "We went on Mother's Day-- as the waiter said, "It's live theater". Stressful as Mother's Day is for a restaurant's staff the service was impeccable and everything came out in good time. Lockkeeper's has a lovely room (two floors). The food was excellent but the bread deserves special mention."

  • "We had a reservation but were seated in a booth in the bar area where we smelled the cigarette smoke wafting in from the front door. Confused by being escorted into the bar instead of the restaurant, I asked about dining room seating and was told that there was already a large party there. It must have been a HUGE party if they couldn't accommodate the 3 of us who again, had reservations. Service was difficult. If we needed more water or ice tea or coffee we had to get the attention of our aloof waitress who was idling at the far side of the bar chatting up her coworkers. Our meals were delicious however and this is the only bad experience I've ever had at Lockkeeper's. It's just a shame that it happened on Mother's Day."
