Great local scene.Overpriced salads
Enjoyed the decor at the bar area. Modern and fresh. The mixed drinks were off the mark. artichoke salad was amazing, but the $14 price tag for it was excessive.

What can I say? Once again
What can I say? Once again Flour knocked it out of the park. Outstanding food, wine, ambiance. Our server Matt hit a home run with impeccable service. Watching the tribe game while dining helped with the theme of my review!!! Go Tribe and go Flour!

Amazing dinner every time we go!
Had the bone in ribeye and it was the best ribeye I have ever had

First time to Flour. Bread was outstanding with our generous, chilled martinis. Eggplant meatball side was delectable in a light tomato sauce. The Caesar salad with a poached egg was unusual and really yummy. The pizza and pasta bolognese were both very good. The staff were friendly and interesting without feeling like they were sitting at your table. We will be back for more!

My wife and I went to the Flour for dinner. The food was very tasty, I had spare ribs and my wife had a salmon – both dishes were very good, cooked to perfection. For the appetizer we had muscles - they were ok. Overall I liked food and the restaurant atmosphere. I would definitely recommend this place.

Another good "Italian" experience
I'm a fan of this place. I usually always order the entree special; this was the first time I did not. The salmon off the menu though is just as good as any special I have had. I also enjoyed the date app! Nice outside patio. Nicely landscaped so you don't really feel as if you are in a parking lot and you certainly don't feel being on the corner or 2 busy roads.

Good food, good wine list (mostly Italian varieties). Well managed, good menu and Paul Minello takes care of his patrons. Tuesday nights, a bottle of wine is 1/2 price with dinner. Easy parking and lots of it.

Great place. Lively and great
Great place. Lively and great food. Get the olives with goat cheese. Sounds odd but it is great.

Great food & nicely paced service
I keep going back to Flour and each time and the consistency makes it a delight. There are few restaurants in this city that understand
Food, creativity , and are always surprising their guests with another take on a dish. Flour does this so well. Six in our family , two of us gluten intolerant enjoyed outstanding service, delicious salads, mussels, scallops , salmon and walleye and pizzas Saturday night. Our server was relaxed, and didn't rush the meal . Thank you. For continuing to raise the bar.

A local recommended this place as THE spot to go on the East side of town. I couldn't agree more. One of the best meals I've had in Cleveland. We had the beef carpaccio, which was fairly standard, but good. The porcetta was the star for me with a great balance of flavor and the melon agrodolce being the perfect note to cut what could have been a really rich dish.

Flour: Spectacular Food/Ambiance
Flour's atmosphere is wonderfully diverse from the energetic room, which includes the bar, high-top tables and standard tables (my favorite), to the very nice patio, to the larger dinning area, which has been sectioned in a way to create intimacy, yet openness. I would define the cuisine as artisan, rustic, Italian: the fresh flavors of Tuscany, the seafood and pasta of the Amalfi Coast, and pizza's like Naples, which are prepared in their Neopolitan oven. My wife and I dine there very frequently, and the menu provides us with the variety to keep on coming back. Make sure to order something from the appetizers - all are fantastic. Chicken Cacciatori is out of this world, porchetta alla romana is amazing, and pizza are the best in the city.n

The staff was all extremely friendly! Very enjoyable experience.

Fun night out!
Flour has a fresh open appeal from its spacious venue and contemporary décor to its casual yet innovative cuisine. Very affordable!

Flour- Bon Appetit
Great wine list, bar drinks and specialty beers. Updated more modern Italian, pizza's, pasta's and main dishes. Our group loved their entree's and the patio dining was beautiful. Half price wine night on Tuesdays and Duck and Cover, the band on Thursday/Saturday make Flour a winner! Ciao!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went on a Thursday night. It was busy, but the tables are spaced far enough apart that we didn't feel cramped.
The food was great. Our waiter recommended the beef short ribs and they were simply the best I've ever had. The risotto was an excellent pairing with the dish.
The place was great, my date thoroughly enjoyed it, and I'm going back soon.
8/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
A terrific dining experience
The food was terrific, the service impeccable which the evening a wonderful dining experience.
8/8/2013 5:00:00 PM
Tried and True
Flour is always a great place, fabulous wine list and amazing food time and time again.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Waitress was superb. Second time we have had her wait on us and we were very pleased both times.
The food was good and no one rushed us--very pleasant evening.
Probably the only minor issue would be that three of us had salmon and one person had asked for very well done and another not very well done. And when they came to table the person who brought them (not our waitress) had no idea about any differences and we just took one. They were good, but all were cooked the same as far as we could tell.
But overall a great experience.
8/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great go-to spot
Had spring salad-fresh, delicious, generous portion
Italian wedding soup-best I have ever had
Special pizza-well cooked,, tasty
Always love going here
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not the best but not bad this time
I go here all the time and usually get the same thing. Today the salmon was a bit more rare than I prefer. The flavour and accompaniments were still spot on and the fish was good, just not their usual. We sat outside and had good fast service from a friendly waitress and her assistant. Give this place a try for non traditional Italian food.

Wood Fired Pizza
My husband found this Flour-Italian Kitchen by googling Wood Fired Pizza. He was not disappointed. We had a party of six and all of us LOVED the pizza. We now have this on our list of good places to eat.

Had an excellent Sunday dinner
Had an excellent Sunday dinner at Flour. Between the six of us we ordered over half the menu items, and the food was outstanding. The porchetta is a must-try, and Flour's take on chicken cacciatore in a Dutch oven was a great surprise. The wine list is fun and I'm sure we'll be returning soon.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Loved every minute of it.
I took out of town colleagues to the restaurant for a business dinner and the food and wine was out of this world. Everything from the appetizers to the dessert were beautifully presented, outstanding flavor and nice portion sizes. The wine list selection is incredible. The atmosphere is very chic yet so comfortable and relaxing. I would highly recommend this restaurant.
9/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't say enough!
We continue to be amazed with our all around dining experience at Flour. In particular I had the scallops with bean ragoutte and it was off the chart! The other dish was lobster in an acorn squash puree. Yummm. It's always a treat, never rushed, always attended to with good cheer by the staff!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Flour continues to offer superior food & service. We have never been disappointed there and heartily recommend it.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my wife here for her birthday and we both loved it! Great atmosphere. We got the chicken parmesean and a pepperoni pizza and both were excellent! We're definitely going to come back.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
The pizza special is very fairly priced and very good. Thin crust and tasty.
9/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu is innovative, the food is outstanding, the service was a little fast - next time we will order by the course - but if you're in a hurry to get in for some great food and get out - order all your courses at once. The kitchen was lightning speed the night my wife and I dined at Flour. It will definitely become one of our new favorites. Just delicious!!
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dinner with a few
Excellent dinner with a few bottles of wine. We really enjoyed the place and will be back. Food was excellent as was the service
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
We loved it!
It was our first time at Flour this weekend. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Our server was very knowledgable about the menu and helped us with our choices, as we wanted to try several items.
It reminded us of Italy in that we were able to experience different appetizers and have half portions of the main dishes. We didn't have to leave stuffed, like at many Italian restaurants in the States.
The food was fun and delicious. We will definitely be back. What a gem.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food at Flour is excellent. The menu is limited but varied. My scallops were perfectly cooked and my husband's pork loin was delicious too. Our service left a lot to be desired. A large party at the table behind us stole our waitress for much of the time and we had already waited for our table for 15 mins even though we had a reservation. Despite the slow service and the noisy atmosphere, I would definitely go back because of the food.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food; Service ok this time
Food is always terrific. We had poor service this one time and do hope that was an exception. Otherwise, a neighborhood gem.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
I greatly value consistency and Flour delivers. There are a plethora of good restaurants in Cleveland and there is no reason to go back to mediocrity. Flour keeps us coming back. The service is always good and the food, terrific.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
A memorable meal
We visited Flour this past Wednesday. Arrived early for our reservation but were still seated immediately. Service was prompt and friendly. It was a little disappointing that it took four tries to find a wine that they weren't out of, our server informed us that since Tuesday is half-price wine night, they tend to run low mid-week. Had pasta, risotto and main courses - would have been nicer had they not arrived at the same time so we didn't have to choose which item would get cold. We weren't rushed through our meal and were able to enjoy our anniversary. Overall the quality and quantity of food was great for the price point. This was our first visit, definitely won't be the last.
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice promotion on a very excellent selection of pizzas.
10/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Italian Food in Cleveland
Not your typical Italian place with chicken or eggplant parm. Very creative dishes that are extremely tasty. Would go back very soon!
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Surprisingly good brunch
My wife and I are a little less than knocked out with dinner at Flour. Even though we live very close, we find it a bit too loud, and the food OK, but not outstanding. We preferred Paul's earlier ventures better. However, we tried brunch there last Sunday and were amazed at how good the food was. Highly recommend it.
10/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
As a lover of the old Baricelli Inn I am delighted that Paul has moved on and jMatt has joined him. Dinner was leisurely enjoyed with friendly, attentive service. We were warmly greeted when we entered and throughout the evening were made to feel most welcome. I love the fried olives with goat cheese appetizer! And the pasta I chose was wonderful. Good wine selection and noise level was good so that we conversed easily. We'll be return customers again and again.
10/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Good experience. Menu items
Good experience. Menu items were suitable for lunch and portions a good size. The decor of the restaurant is comfortable with contemporary touches and good natural light during the lunch hour.
My only complaint was that the chairs were not cleaned off after the previous guests. All four chairs of the table had crumbs and I cleaned them off with a napkin from one of the 4 place settings.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Happy To Go Back
Had another wonderful meal; with enough for leftovers! Our busser was FABULOUS!!!
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
well worth it!
Great food.....way beyond ordinary. We loved the service and willed definitely go again.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best stuffed olive appetizer ever!
This restaurant never fails to deliver excellent food. The stuffed olive appetizer is delicious and everyone I have brought there agrees. There were eight of us and everyone raved about their meal. The short ribs are not to be missed.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Flour has excellent lunch options, but this time I had to order the Flour burger again, just to make sure it lives up to its billing as the top burger in Cleveland. Wow!
Excellent service, as always! Thanks.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service and the food was the best! The pizza was so good! We will go back many more times. The best seats are at the kitchen!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food is always good, especially
The food is always good, especially the pizzas. New additions to the menu, eggplant meatballs and whipped burrata were delicious.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
We have been here several times and always come away happy. The staff is great and the manager walks the floor making sure everyone is taken care of. It is on the noisiey side since the ceilings are high. We will be going back.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We adore Flour!!! Both my husband & I always love everything we order! The last time I went there with my friend she ordered something that she didn't love and our server noticed and insisted that she order something different! That's great service!
I always get the same things because I'm addicted! I start with Beef Carpaccio and a Caesar Salad!! Then I get the Egg Ravioli (I've never seen this anywhere else) which is out of this world! I finish with the Pannacotta with Balsalmic glaze! My husband mixes it up and gets other things and he always loves them!! This week he got the Chicken Cacciatore and it came in this beautiful terrine! Such presentation! Beef Short Ribs are a favorite too! Pizzas are great too for lunch or lighter fare!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Outstanding wine list!
The appetizer and the wine list is outstanding !
And on Tuesdays any botle of wine less than $100.00
Is 50% off. And the waiter was great!
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
Menu is not huge, but is well
Menu is not huge, but is well balanced, some fish and vegetarian choices that we appreciate. The funghi pizza is delicious, demonstrates that the chef has a nice sense of color, texture, flavor. Service is good, wait staff pleasant and accomodating. We usually sit in the back room away from bar noise. Unfortunately the last time we were there a large, enthusiastic party raised the noise level in that room too! Wine list is good. Prices of wine and food are in range with a couple of larger chain restaurants, while food, service, and ambience are noticeably finer.
11/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
Friendly , interesting menu nothing is over sauced and the pizza is special.
