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
  • "For the record, that was the best Easter brunch we have ever had. The food was delicious. I have been to several places for brunch for Easter, a family tradition, and your place so far was the best. On a note to myself, this year I will plan in advance for more people since I was unaware that parties of 4 or more book 6 months or better in advance, as I was advised."

  • "I left Cleveland in 1985. Pier W back then was always that special place to go. Vernon Stouffer, yes the one who invented frozen French bread pizza and owned the Cleveland Indians, used to live in the Penthouse of Winton Place, where Pier W is located. After a recent wonderful makeover, it has a very nice modern feel. The food is very good. The service is great. Lunch looks to be a great bargain, also the bar seemed to be a very happening place. One downside. The famous boulabaisse needs some attention. Too few clams and mussels, tiny shrimp, drop the Jonah claw and the accompanied bread too oily. My dad loved this dish but it was so much better 30 years ago. Some fennel and red pepper would also help the broth. "

  • "I want to thank the Peir W staff for a fantastic evening and for going above and beyond to make my experience special. I took a friend that I have been with for the 10 years to Peir W for her 47th birthday. I had requested a window seat on-line not thinking I would get one but I thought it wouldn't hurt to ask. As soon as I arrived and checked in I could tell they had set aside a window seat for us. It couldn't have been better. A sunny day that turned into city views at night. The food was amazing, the service was great, and to top it off, they brought out a special desert for her birthday. Thanks again."

  • "I came for the view and a romantic birthday celebration for my partner and I. Pier W did not disappoint! The food was great, but not the best I've had in the city. The fantastic wait staff and the ambiance, however, make up for anything the food was lacking. Dining just before sunset is amazing if you're by a window, as you get the best view of the Cleveland skyline as the sun reflects off of the buildings and the lights begin to turn on. Pier W won't be a go-to for me in the future, but I'll definitely bring people back for special occasions. "

  • "What a wonderful place to take visitors for not only the best view of the city, but delicious seafood as well. Great atmosphere, extensive wine list, and I feel good eating here due to the restaurant's support of sustainable fisheries. I had the simply-prepared diver scallops and can't recommend this dish enough."

  • "Best dining views in Cleveland while eating some of the best food in Cleveland. Quiet, romantic and best visited at sunset to capture the romance and then the city skyline all lit up. The food and service were delicious and very accommodating. This should be on everyone's bucket list when visiting or living in Cleveland."

  • "My girlfriend and I went to Pier W on Monday 4/7 for a special occasion and the experience was outstanding. The service (Amos-server) was very friendly, knowledgeable, and non-invasive (like a lot of servers are these days). The atmosphere was impeccable (despite the rain) and the staff from the moment we walked in the door were more than cordial. The food was amazing (Calamari, Scallops, and King Crab legs), and I will definitely be back for my next special occasion."

  • "I should have bypassed the breakfast potatoes, sausage and eggs benedict since all these items needed more sterno heat to be enjoyable and were eaten kindof cold. On the other hand, the seafood selections were just excellent. That is where I spent most of my time. So much time that I did not have a lot of room left for dessert. That dessert table was worth the price of admission."

  • "I have lived in the Cleveland area all my life, (which is longer than I care to admit) and for as long as I can remember Pier W is notable for being consistently excellent, season after season, year after year. If you want an excellent fine seafood dining experience in the Cleveland area, Pier W is without question reliability your best bet."

  • "A list minute choice but a great one at that! Our server Melanie was professional, courteous and attentive as was the bus staff. The portions large enough for leftovers later in the week. Having been a former Stouffer Restaurant employee Pier W always has a place on my favorite list."

My server was so nice she made our evening great. The Salmon whew excellent, the Wine great, and shrimp cocktail was good, the sweet bread loved it. Thank you Pier W and staff from the front lobby to the table for making our visit wonderful."

  • "I thought that the view was phenomenal and the drinks were perfectly made. The service was outstanding... But the food was awful! And it was expensive. I don't mind paying for good food but I don't think the bread should be the best thing on the menu. I would never eat the food again but I would return for drinks and the view."

  • "First time dining with Pier W, we wanted to dine somewhere special with a great ambiance, service and seafood selection. Pier W did not dissapoint. The occasion was a very special one for my family and Pier 1 pulled out all stops, we had a great time, the level of service and caring was overwhelmingly amazing . We will definitley be back."

  • "The four of us had brunch at 10:15AM at Pier W. First we tried to make reservation for 11AM, but actually we were pleased with the earlier seating- fresh everything, plenty of servers on hand, morning sunshine etc. The food is always very good except the fish soup ( reminded us an ordinary vegetable soup). At the front desk, she could be a little more friendlier. Price: too high."

  • "Was in Pier W with my family this weekend to celebrate a special occasion and this place was a perfect for such occasions. I chose it for its view and the reviews I had read online on quality of food and ambience which no doubt were exceptional. I loved the menu choices as well as the presentation. However the dishes are only good for a one person despite their cost so beware if you are planning to share food in a family style. The waitress was very polite and patient. She was quite experienced and handled our dishes and requests with ease. The table we were seated in had a perfect view of the Cleveland downtown. Would definitely like to go there during summer again for both view and the food."

  • "Met friends for happy hour and birthday celebration on a Friday evening. Great drinks and food selections from the happy hour menu but be sure to sit In the bar area to be able to get the happy hour prices, they don't apply if you're seated at a table with a beautiful lake view! An added bonus is the piano player in the bar area, he was great and played the birthday song for us!"

  • "Haven't been to Pier W in a while and was disappointed. Overpriced for quality and portion sizes. Salad was boring and small. Entree fish was good, but not great. Vegetables were overcooked. I was surprised at the overall poor quality of the meal as we were there early in the evening and it wasn't busy. Wine by the glass overpriced. This place has become a "special event" only kind of place as the view and ambience are great, but the food quality and overall value has really declined."

  • "Amazing and friendly service. Fantastic view and ambiance. Feels like eating in a boat. Food was sub-par. Definitely paying for the view rather than the taste of the food. Had a bone in my fish as well. But beautiful sun sets and view of city skyline."

  • "There is nothing in the area where we live that can match Pier W for the combination of great food, great service and great view. Everything we tried from the buffett was excellent. Two of us ordered the custom-made omelettes with salmon, cheese and mushrooms and they were perfect. There was plenty of variety on the buffett and the serving trays were kept full. Our waitress was friendly and fast and kept us supplied with fresh silverware, water and coffee. We'll be back for sure."

  • "If you've never done Brunch at Pier W then put it on your 'must-do' list. Selection and quality of food: five stars in both categories. The mystical view of the lake is off the charts. One of the most beautifully set restaurants in Cleveland...if you visit Cleveland, find the time, indeed find a way, to stop at Pier W, whether for dinner or brunch or simply to have a drink and take in the views. It is well worth it no matter how little time you may have, no matter the weather, just go. Must do...must do..."
