Not in ohio anymore!Pier W takes you right out of lakewood onto a ship with an ocean view. The experience was wonderful. I cant believe a place like this is hidden right around the corner. Thank You Pier W!6/15/2013 12:00:00 AMlobster tailsthe lobster tails were to small and high price you need to get large lobster tails like one pounders the shrimp was great and put 6 on a plate not 5 on the cocktail shrimp6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAll that we expectedMy wife and I selected Pier W as our destination for a meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We were hoping to get a window seat to enjoy the views of Lake Erie, the shoreline, and downtown, but no window seats were available because their policy is "first come, first served" on those tables. We understood that and still were able to secure a table with a good view, but unfortunately it was a bit hazy that evening and the view did not offer a lot to look at anyway. But none of this is a review of the restaurant; the food was excellent and the service was top-notch and prompt. We both enjoyed the lobster bisque while my wife raved over her beef tenderoin tips and I was quite satisfied with the swordfish.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent brunchPier W has a spectacular weekend brunch for a reasonable set price. The views of Cleveland are nice if you are lucky enough to get a window seat. We enjoyed the brunch so much that we returned with my in-laws from New York who also loved Pier W and were impressed with the food and the view.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMBest brunch in Cleveland!Great brunch! Have been recommending it to everyone I know.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDining at its best...with a view!We have been to Pier W many times, but this was our first visit since the remodel and it is fantastic!

We managed to get a last minute reservation. We arrived early and managed to get seated right away. I enjoyed the chicken and my husband the lobster. The piano player was great and not too overpowering.6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother wonderful dinnerI love this restaurant. You are in an upscale, trendy restaurant hanging over the edge of cliff with beautiful views of downtown Cleveland and Lake Erie. The food is fabulous. I ate the simply grilled salmon (with summer squash and roasted potatoes in pesto sauce) and my boyfriend ate simply grilled walleye (same sides) - both were delicious and cooked perfectly. Service was great.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat viewI was very pleased with my experience at Pier W. The view of Lake Erie was beautiful as was the resturant. The food delicious, I will return here during my next visit to Cleveland.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMfabulous brunchwe take our parents for brunch to celebrate Mother and father's day but not on the actual holiday.

The food and service are superb. I highly recommend it for that special night out. Although it is a bit pricey.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a good choiceMy husband and I have dined at Pier W several times now, and every time we are not disappointed. The service is impeccable, the food is delicious, and the view can't be beat. In our opinion, the best restaurant in the Cleveland area.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Refreshing ChangeI was in town for business and decided to try a new place. It was suggested by our hotel and I'm glad it was5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe couldn't have asked forWe couldn't have asked for anything more! The staff, the food and the remodel were are extraordinary.
We haven't been in a few years but we can't wait to return.5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dinner and RestaurantWent there for our 2 year anniversary and it was amazing! It was great service and beautiful views! Highly recommended5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMW for Wow!Hadn't been there in years but had trouble finding a spot open on Memorial Day to entertain out of town guests. They have beautifully renovated the entire restaurant! And the food, better than ever. Our friend was a vegetarian, and found the vegetarian menu to be one of the most extensive and delightful she had ever seen in a non vegetarian restaurant!
The sunset was beautiful, and Jessica our server was top notch.
I would highly recommend for foodies, it was fabulous! (Steak and fish was exceptional! Wine list by bottle and glass very, very good.)5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday BrunchSunday brunch on May 26th was excellent as always. The service was outstanding and the huge variety of gourmet foods was second to none! Thank you!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMService was outstanding, foodService was outstanding, food was excellent, preparation was very original. Very nice place for special occasions, a little pricey but well worth it.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMIt doesn't get better than Pier W!!Everything is top notch! The quality, variety, preparation and display of the food are the best. The service is outstanding.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch Favorite for Many Years!My parents have been coming to Pier W since they were newly weds. The Sunday brunch is always amazing. The view of Cleveland, live piano music, and amazing food (everything from eggs benedict to mussles to french toast) have made Pier W our number one must do when friends are in town.
I have yet to do the Piano Bar at night, but I imagine it's just as wonderful. And, please note, although I didn't select Kid-Friendly, they are great with children from all ages from infants to teenagers. Just this past trip my god-daughter was getting a little tired and started to pout and a waiter (not serving us) stopped and cheeried her right back up.
I highly recommend Pier W for any an all people interested in great food with a great ambiance!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMgreatThe brunch was very good. Have visited many times and consistently good.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMJust WonderfulThis is definitely the place to go for a special occasion in Cleveland. The food and service was great, and the view was unbeatable.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect anniversaryAlthough Pier W is a Cleveland landmark, we visited for our anniversary for the first time. The view drew us in but the food will bring us back. Shrimp cocktail was the best anywhere - even on the coast. From the salmon to the dessert - everything was superb. Staff was attentive too and made the day special.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had not been to Pier WWe had not been to Pier W in about 10 years. The renovation was very nice, views from all the tables. We had a table towards the front, but still had a decent view. I figured out after being there for a few minutes, if you ask for something towards the window with a view of the lake, they will give you a table if they have one. Food and service was very good. My daughter and I split a salad. We could not believe how small the portion was after the split. Entree portions were good though. Our service was very good. There are many restaurant's that I feel like I am being rushed , but not at Pier W. We had a very enjoyable birthday dinner with our daughter and her boyfriend.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat view of downtown...Excellent dinner, great view of the city. Definitely will return...ask for a table to view downtown.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, atmosphere, serviceFood was scrumptious, atmosphere was formal, yet relaxed, service was fantastic and friendly.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWell worth the moneyWhat was under Pier W's control was excellent. Service was both professional and friendly. The food, both seafood (salmon) and steak (14 ounce NY steak) was heated properly and delicious. The bread alone was unusually good and dsifferent. This is aplace to go for a romantic evening with that special person.
The only bad thing about the experience was something Pier W had no control over - the weather. The weather was cold (low 40's), blustery and a fog rolled in over the Lake that completely obliterated the viiew of Cleveland's skyline. Walking outside the restaurant by the Lake was not possible.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, we had a wonderfulAs always, we had a wonderful dinner and outstanding service! Pier W is a special "gem" in Cleveland and we are very lucky to live virtually right next door in Winton Place!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat First Date PlaceI didn't go here on my first date but it would be great. Go into the bar area for a drink and then take a table by the window with a great view of the lake. Not only is the view and service great, but the food is excellent. You can not go wrong!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday Springtime BrunchVast selection - pretty venue - attentive service. I haven't been there for years ... And it was a nice "Welcome Back!" It's a little pricey, but the restaurant was full so the price doesn't seem to discourage people of all ages!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe view is the best in Cleveland.The view is the best in Cleveland. The menu which is oriented towards seafood is outstanding, especially the walleye tempura. The service is attentive without being intrusive. This is a unique and attractive restaurant that never disappoints.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the drive!We drove 35 miles to celebrate our anniversary and requested a great view for our first visit to this restaurant. We were rewarded with the great view and an excellent dining experience. While we were there we talked about coming back for future special occasions. This was definitely worth the drive!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWONDERFUL!!!This was my first time to the restaurant. the View is beautiful and right on the lake!! Food is perfect!! Great place!!!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect ExperienceMy husband and I received a gift certificate and used it for brunch. What a fantastic experience! We had made reservations for the 9:30 AM seating, and were seated quickly. The hostess was very accommodating and seated us directly in front of the windows, with an unfettered view of downtown Cleveland. Our server, Amos, was attentive and knowledgeable. The food was fantastic, with familiar breakfast items as well as more exotic options (Wild Boar Pate, anyone?) The signature Bouillabaisse was particularly delicious; there is a reason the recipe has remained virtually unchanged since the 1960s. The only minor issue was the sound system; the speakers were problematic when they switched to the piano player.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for our anniversayGreat food, better service and a view that can't be beat on the north shore.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday dinnerHad a great dinner experience while celebrating my wife's birthday. Our server, Greg, "jumped through hoops" to ensure our vegan daughter had a great experience (and great food) as well.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMTop restaurant in this areaMy wife and I went here for our 5 year anniversary. After a walk down Hollywood-style red carpet entrance and being greeted by the vallet, the rotating doors above the restaurant have access to a gorgeous view of the skyline of downtown Cleveland and Lake Erie. You then have a choice to walk down modern design stairs or take the optional elevator, yes I said elevator, down to the restaurant where we were seated right away (with 8pm reservations). The live musician on the piano was amazing, the food was definitely top notch and the service was exceptional, prices were fair for the experience you get. My filet mignon was cooked perfectly at a requested medium rare, even though they specialize in seafood, I will definitely return to this gem.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing. If we happen to beAmazing. If we happen to be in CLE for sure we will visit. The swordfish was great5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSplendidFirst word that came to mind. We have not been to Pier W in a few years. We were so glad that we left Akron at 4:45 pm to get there.
Our appointment was at 5:30; we arrived at about 5:35.
My wife said, "It was delicious. I loved it."
We both had the cedar plank salmon. The beurre blanc was incredible. Potatoes and Swiss chard were perfect. Clam chowder was smooth, creamy and loaded with clams.
The server was knowledgeable and attentive.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable ExcellenceSetting, staff, service, menu, cuisine....absolutely tops.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMNever been disappointedNever been disappointed, I visit for special occasions.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMSmoking hotLiterally. The temp in the restaurant was too hot, made my date uncomfortable. Server said she would address it, but nothing changed. Everything else was superb!5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING!Pier W is a Cleveland MUST! The food, location, atmosphere and view are sublime!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMfood and service was awesome!!!!food and service was awesome!!!! my husband took me for my birthday on may 10 and we enjoyed it so much we took my mom for mothers day.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!!I always come here with my boyfriend so we decided to take my mom to brunch and she absolutely loved it!! We all loved it!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day diningHard to grade on such a busy dining occasion as the crowd of families certainly raised the noise level over the rom. But conversation was still easy at our table. Service was good, wine choices were good, all entrees, salads were quite good. The lobster bisque was outstanding. Desert easily large enough to share and the mini-dessert just the perfect size to cap a lovely meal. Views of the lake shoreline are striking even in unfortunate weather and the determined sun offered us a lovely view, with dramatic lighting, of downtown Cleveland's skyline as the evening approached.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful setting for a night outMy wife and I celebrated a wedding anniversary at Pier W and were very pleased with the service, food, and environment. The restaurant's claim to fame is the view (which is spectacular), but the service and general layout and design of the place made the atmosphere as well. The food was very good, though perhaps did not distinguish itself from other fine restaurants in Cleveland. The setting is really what sets this place apart.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur server was outstanding,Our server was outstanding, she was very knowledgable and helpful with items on the menu. She made recommendations and suggestions and answered all of our questions and she did not steer us wrong. Of course, the food was delicious, and prepared perfectly, but our server made the evening spectacular!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
