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.

    Loved brunch! You get complimentary sparkling wine or mimosa which is wonderful. Buffet is extensive. Pricy but worth it. Our server was obviously having a grumpy day but I guess that can happen...

    Piew W is a treat always. The food at brunch is amazing, we especially loved the perch. The piano player excellent. Next time I will plan ahead better to have a table with a view of the lake and the city.

    This brunch is amazing. If you leave here unhappy, then you came in unhappy! It is a lovely atmosphere, the food is quality and abundant and the view sitting over Lake Erie is stunning. We had to increase our numbers at the last minute, and of course it was fully booked, but I worked with Amy one of the front desk professionals and by the end of the week she was able to accommodate us! Big shout out to Amy and all the staff and chefs at Pier W. It is a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning and afternoon! Bravo! Valoree

    My husband and I love this restaurant but if you are celebrating a special occasion there is no way you can get a table by the window. We know that the tables are first come first serve but when we have requested a window table for a 50th anniversary celebration and we get there and they say no we can't have one of those tables even though they are open it's frustrating. They did seat customers there AFTER we were seated so it wasn't first come first serve for us. We brought the anniversary couple there for the first time and they liked the restaurant but agreed that the "first come first serve" policy was not followed. That's too bad. May keep us from bringing someone else there for a "special occasion".

    We were celebrating our 5 year anniversary and the place was perfect. The food was great, and so was the service. We had mentioned to our waiter that it was our anniversary and when he brought out the dessert it had a white chocolate candy with happy anniversary on it. Just a wonderful time and an amazing view of the lake and the city.

    My wife and I had dinner at Piew W for our first wedding anniversary and it was AMAZING! The food was spectacular. The service was great, and the view of the lake was gorgeous. That doesn't even take into consideration the special menus that said "Happy Anniversary" on them, or the cute couples cheesecake bites with the delicious disk of whit chocolate as a garnish that also had "Happy Anniversary" on it. It was such an experience and I highly recommend it for any special occasion. Also, we've been there for brunch on the weekends, and the food is just as amazing and it is a much more low key casual atmosphere while still maintaining their class that is a cut above. If you've never been... GO! I guarantee you'll go again.

    Food was not up to par, even without regard of the high price. Lobster bisque came out luke warm. All other food was bland and tasteless. We were celebrating a birthday and table by the window was great with view of city skyline, and the piano music added a nice touch.

Pier W is great for all special occasions, from birthdays and anniversaries to where to take your in-laws when they come in from out of town. Always excellent food, excellent service. Awesome views of the city. Can't say enough about this place. Fresh seafood flown in daily. Highly recommend.

    It was a wonderful brunch with a beautiful table and an outstanding selection of breakfast, fresh sushi, dinner entrees. Well planned buffet presenting guests a dining adventure. Impeccable service. Excellent food. Perfect afternoon until a slovenly, messy, unkempt woman was seated next to us...50'ish age with extremely soiled and torn jeans (not the fashionable type!) She was dirty. And her greasy hair that looked as if it hand't been washed in a month. Her male companion had messed the back of his khaki pants. Your menu says "appropriate dress required". Your juvenile hostess should be trained to understand what that means. But obviously too young to make that appropriate decision. It spoiled our wonderful time Shame on you!

    We are former military and have dined in dozens of countries, from Michelin stars to barrel tables in alleys. We are definite "foodies" and love to reminisce about memorable meals we've had round the world. Pier W knows exactly what it is; an American country club-type formal dining room on the water that serves meat and fish cooked to enhance their natural flavors (no Moroccan-inspired sauces paired with mango chipotle garnish, unless you ask for it!) paired with excellent wines. This restaurant IS sophisticated- it doesn't need to pretend! Another plus, the clientele was diverse- racially and generationally, but everyone had the same blissful face. Lovely evening, competent server, nice views, and wonderful food. Can't wait to go back!
