    The portions were small - and only 4 small octupus on the pasta entree!!! The wine pours were ridiculously small - basically a half-glass of wine. While the food was okay to good, I wouldn't return here.

    Overall, I was disappointed about the lack of responsiveness by the wait staff to our comment on the food. My friend, who was being taken out for his birthday, and I both ordered the cauliflower soup and complained to our waiter and another employee that the soup was too salty--almost to the point of being inedible. While the other employee said that he would tell the kitchen, I was surprised that we were neither comped for the dessert nor had the charges for the soup removed from the bill. I would not go back or recommend this restaurant to others.

    We did a set course with pairing. All the dishes were served at room tempature even the steak. The wine was poured at less then half glass .this was irritating

  • Had to reset my expectations

    I had hoped so much more from The Cleveland and so I have had to reset my expectaton. I think the Cleveland could really be more upmarket than it is by just swapping out the wooden tables and iron chairs. I found the menu a little limiting (appetisers limited to a vegetarian choice - there could've been a fish or a meat appetirser). The food was interesting - the taste and flavours just went so well together. The prices are also good so I assume that it all evens out. We were kinda squashed ontop of each other, felt like I was sharing the table with the people next to us. Saying that I understand that we are in NYC. All up I enjoyed the evening BUT I didn't LOVE the evening.

    Our meal at the Cleveland was fine. Not particularly memorable but everything was prepared nicely and the dining room is laid out very spaciously. I ordered the kale salad and the pappardelle with octopus. I didn't care much for the spices on the kale and found the pappardelle to be a little one note. Again, everything was fine - just not extraordinary.

    Good food. Nothing OUTSTANDING, but definitely nice food and a nice space. I bet the outdoor garden is great to eat in

    Such an amazing restaurant! The food was delicious! I especially loved the cauliflower soup. And for dessert, the sweet potato cake still has me salivating. Service was very friendly and accommodating without trying too hard. Very rustic, cozy feel to the place. Can't wait to go back!

  • Mediocre food and menu overall
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011

    Mediocre food and menu overall for the price. Surprising, considering the restaurant just opened! Our table had the chicken, the fish, and the skirt steak, and the beets. Although, not terrible there was nothing exciting or interesting about the food. The place itself is very cute but small. There are too many other better options in the city for the same price.. probably would not go back.
