A word from Pier W
Pier W, a landmark Cleveland restaurant, has been serving a critically acclaimed seafood and contemporary menu since May 11, 1965. Having recently undergone a $3 million interior renovation, the new Pier W resembles a sophisticated luxury liner cantilevered over Lake Erie offering dramatic views of both the Lake and the downtown Cleveland skyline. We would like to request that shorts, flip flops and baseball caps are not worn to the restaurant.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Everything about Pier W exudes class. The breathtaking views draw us in but the quality of the food and service keep us returning again and again! We've actually dined at Pier W 3 times in the past 2 weeks! It amazes me that in all of the DECADES of enjoying this restaurant, it has never grown old. The excellent, refined service is expected and never disappoints. The physical space shines, never looking worn or outdated. Everything is SPOTLESSLY clean.The happy hour menu is an excellent value. Seafood entrees are fresh. Salads are crisp, interesting, and perfectly dressed. The passion fruit mousse is beautifully presented and delicious! Wonderful wine list and EXCELLENT specialty cocktails, including a seasonal raspberry limeade! Fabulous!"

  • "In a well known place such as Pier W, I would expect fresher tasting. Our group was of 3 people. I had the Walleye. It was a little salty and the potatoes were dry. I needed something to flavor it but I don't know what. For a 6pm dinner, the potatoes should be better. One of my guests ordered the lobster tail. It looked small. The other the plank salmon. It also looked dry. I didn't ask them their opinion of the food. I just know what I ate. If you want the best seafood in town...its still Blue Point, Salmon Dave or Don's Lighthouse"

So glad that we came............I had breakfast food first / yum, then moved onto the delicious prime rib !! Dessert was just what I needed to end a great meal. Will come again :-)"

  • "I took my girlfriend here for her birthday dinner. This is her favorite restaurant. We love the fresh baked bread. It's so fresh we had to wait for a second serving because it was just coming out if the oven. My girlfriend typically gets the scallops but the last 2 times we've gotten the double lobster tails. The chard that accompanies the meal is excellent. We were both seated so that we could see the Cleveland shoreline. We have all of our special meals at Pier W and can't wait to go back."

  • "We had a great experience at Pier W. The excellent view was matched by the food and the service!"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Very nice atmosphere, kitchen and bar area are so loud you cannot think. There is a dress code however it is not enforced at all. Constant patrol of management walking around hawking on their employees like they don't know how to do their job. The food is amazing, but the service end of fine dinning needs addressed. I wouldn't break the bank for this one."

  • "We've had dinner at Pier W before and it was incredible, we went for brunch this time and its a buffet; it was good, not great. Dinner is better."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "To be fair the location, sandwiched between two apt complexes, sucks...but the view is absolutely top notch. The food never fails. Excellent bar (though the bar is crazy expensive). Great place, very expensive, worth the money. One of the top restaurants in Cleveland."

  • "The wife and I went on Saturday for dinner and arrived early for drinks at the bar before dinner. I had an Old Fashioned and my wife had one of their signature cocktails. Both were mixed well and tasty. We had a seat on the interior of the restaurant and couldn't take advantage of the spectacular views of Lake Erie and the Cleveland skyline. The oyster sampler was delicious and my wife enjoyed the lobster bisque. She had the seared scallops and I had seared walleye for entrees. Both were a bit overcooked and were nondescript. The wine list wasn't huge but had some very nice and inexpensive choices. We skipped dessert. Service was prompt. Overall, there are better choices in Cleveland for the price but this does have good views."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We were extremely impressed with not only the view, but the service as well as the outstanding food. The server was there when we needed him but we had plenty alone time without him breathing down our necks. They even gave my girlfriend a free cheesecake since it was her birthday. We plan on going back over and over again."

  • "Beautiful restaurant with great view of Lake Erie and downtown Cleveland. Nice menu with many seafood choices. We had swordfish and Hawaian big eye tuna. Both were nice, not overly large portions and perfectly prepared. A passion fruit dessert was delicious..refreshing and not overly sweet. Service is attentive without being officious."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Excellent Dining experience. Service was fantastic. The food was wonderful. Melt in your mouth steaks and fantastic sword fish. The view of the lake and downtown was fantastic. Wish the wind would not have been so strong, or we would have stayed for drinks on the patio. Wonderful evening!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Thank you for another lovely evening. We were seated on the lower level with an excellent view of downtown and of the lake. The food and service also were great and we are looking forward to our next visit. Our visiting friends from Kitchener, Ontario were impressed!"

  • "Pier W always exceeds my expectations! The food, service, and view are fantastic. Our waitress was great, and the food delicious. This is a must go to restaurant in the Cleveland area!"

  • "This has been one of my favorites for over 30 years. Wonderful view, lovely restaurant, great food & service. They did remove some sampler (appetizer & desert) items that I really enjoyed. Like to try many things without ordering full size. The desert sampler in particular was wonderful. Sorry to see them go."

  • "I had a reservation for 7:30, got the best window seat in the restaurant within 5 minutes. The food was excellent; we had blue cod and eggplant. Our drinks were the best tasting fresh squeezed lemonade and ice tea we've ever tasted. The only problem I noticed, which was not a big deal to me, was the noise level. A bit energetic for a romantic dinner for two. Although I wouldn't say this is a huge flaw because if we were in a separate dining area, the restaurant would lose a lot of open ambiance."

  • "This restaurant has continued through the years to consistently provide the diner with an excellent meal with unparalleled ambiance."

  • "One of the best restaurants in Cleveland. Really takes advantage of the lake and city view. Would recommend it to anyone!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "It was my birthday and I wanted to spend the evening in a place with a view, where my husband and I would really enjoy our meal and the overall experience. We had heard that Pier W had (finally) taken advantage of an outdoor space and opened a patio, but the weather didn't cooperate. Having said that, the patio space was not at all inviting to look at - what a huge disappointment given the fabulous view. Just a bunch of tables scattered around - no flowers or plants or any touches that reflect the elegance of the inside. Really? Dinner, however didn't dissapoint. Cocktails were perfect, lobster pappardelle and the grilled salmon perfectly done - without unneeded sauces, micro something or never heard of toppings. Totally appreciated it."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "What a great dinner. We had a great table with a view of downtown and our server, Tom, was terrific. Everything from appetizers to dessert was great. One of our guests raved about the Lobster Papardelle and my sirloin was cooked to perfection. Keep up the good work."

  • "The view of Lake Erie is wonderful. You watch sailboat after sailboat go buy while eating expertly prepared food. The staff is attentive to your every need. My husband and I love your restaurant and come whenever we can."

  • "A friend of mine was came from Massachusetts on her way to Michigan. She had false assumptions about the Cleveland area. In order to dispel these assumptions, we started at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, then stopped for dinner at Pier W. It was perfect in every way! The FOOD, WINE, scenic view of the lake and very cordial/attentive wait staff made a lasting impression! Many thanks! Go Cle and Pier W!"

  • "My husband and I went there for date night and spent 3.5 hours wining and dining! We truly enjoyed ourselves. The food, service and view are incredible. Highly recommend."

  • "After we were seated our server did not come over to greet us. We waited ten minutes before she came over. It was not if the restaurant was very busy, since our reservation was for 5:30. There were servers lined up against the wall waiting for customers, which even though we weren't their assigned table someone should have welcomed us. Have been dining at Pier W for years and was disappointed with the service on this visit."

  • "We made reservations online for our anniversary bc we had been told it was romantic. Unfortunately-it was not, it was loud, and absolutely no ambience, the flowers were way past their prime and not even a candle on the table! We specifically requested a window seat and did not receive one. There were some available so I asked to be moved to a two top by the window and the waiter was accommodating however at the same time the hostess sat another two top(of 20 something's)at the prime four top surrounded by the windows.The entrees were extremely slow coming out, they were good but that sweet potato gnocci on the side was tough and tasteless.Needless to say it was a very disappointing anniversary dinner."

  • "We were having a rough as a few things previous to pier w did not go as planned. We were initially upset when our table wasn't ready however soon there after realized that the hostesses were being extra nice and helped get a table by the water as requested for my girlfriends birthday. The service, food and overall experience was a ten and we will definitely be back!"

  • "My husband and I dined here for our anniversary for the third year in a row and again, they did not disappoint. I started with the Big Eye Tuna Crostini which was fresh and absolutely delicious. My husband loves the lobster bisque and it was wonderful, as always. For entrees I ordered the Cedar Planked Salmon but I changed my side to the leek and artichoke risotto that usually comes with another dish. The server was happy to make the change for me and my meal was amazing. The salmon was a nice size portion and arrived quickly and hot. The risotto was creamy and flavorful. My husband ordered the Seared Diver Scallops and they were very tasty as well. Our server was prompt and courteous and the food all arrived in a very timely manor."
