Seared reviews from OpenTable diners
  • I made a reservation to meet
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 6/28/2012
    I made a reservation to meet people at Seared and have dinner. When I arrived, the restaurant was closed, no one there to talk to. I found a 'worker' there, saying the AC was broken, and they were closed. I understand, things happen, but could have used a call, or have someone there to greet patrons that may come to dinner. Some parties traveled to get there.

    Unfortunately, this restaurant is on "Life Support". Our previous experience at the restaurant was very goog, however, things there have changed dramatically. When we walked in, it was extremely noticeable that paint was peeling off the wall next to the entry door - not a good firts impression. On a Saturday night at 7:00pm, there couldn't have been half a dozen tables occupied. 84 degrees outside, and the restaurant's air conditioning was not working. Things went downhill from there. First our server informed us that the mussels appetizer & sea bass entree would not be available. As we continued, our wine (William Hill cabernet), liquor (Glen Livet), appetizer (cheese plate) and entree (stuffed shrimp) choices were all not available.

    It was our first time at Seared, and I have to say we left very impressed. We had scallops as an appetizer, which were cooked perfectly. We each had a salad, of which I think they had 5 choices; good ones and not your ordinary choices. My husband had the filet, which he enjoyed very much, and I had the mahi mahi, which looked just as good as it tasted. Our server, Nick, was very kind, attentive, and knowledgeable. Being a weekday it was slow enough so we could talk to him a bit and we asked to see their other menus. Both their lunch and brunch menus look just as good as the dinner one. Yum! I'll have to go back soon and see what else they can do!

    The service was very poor. All the tables around ours were complaining and had to wait for their orders. The table next to us got their salads after a wait but never got their entrees. The waitress came out after a long time and said it was going to be another 15 minutes. At that point, they asked for their check and left. The Manager was helpful and understanding and tried to explain the reasons for the problems. She did offer us complimentary desserts, which we appreciated and enjoyed. I don't ever remember going to a restaurant with this many problems. If they don't do something quickly to correct them, they will not be in business very long. They will not get any repeat customers. The problem is the kitchen not the wait staff.

    The waiter we had was very nice & remained that way throughout the evening. Also the manager was very accommodating. The sea bass 1 of the people in our party ordered had to be sent back twice for being gelatinous & undercooked. I had to send my salmon back once for the salmon reason, however it did come out right the 2nd time. The potatoes and asparagus of another person in our party were also not edible. They were undercooked & overcooked respectively. The manager compensated us by removing the sea bass from the bill & removing $5 from the charge for my salmon. He gave us a free dessert & 2 coffees. Everyone was nice. I really hope the kitchen pulls it together because the location is very nice (old Spanish Tavern). Live music began at 8p

    Dining room was pretty, but hot, so we asked to be seated in the bar area since they had ceiling fans. I ate lobster bisque, side salad and crab cake, all of which were excellent. The only turn off for me was the cloudy/streaky looking wine glass my wine came in. The server was nice, but food took a long time to arrive even though the restaurant was not busy. All-in-all, I would go back for another crab cake, it was delish!

    Many groups so noise level up. Wait staff approached us three times with different meal parts but the food/drink wasn't ours, so they needed to then find correct table. Asparagus/risotto was lukewarm, slightly gummy tasting; bland; and asparagus was closer to raw than to tender crisp. Good steak. Very small vegetable portion with steak. Very good potatoes. No bread offered; but bread dishes on table. Pricey.

    Nice to see the old spanish tavern builiding resurrected, nice ambiance. We thought the menu was uninspiring and overpriced. There are other choices in Cleveland that provide a better menu at comparable prices. It was disappointing that they were out of the Mahi Mahi at 6:00pm on a Friday! Doesn't seem like good planning by the chef. We shared a Tuscan salad, enjoyed it. Our entrees were Argentinian hanger steak and Steak Au poivre. We didn't dislike our food, it was well prepared and presented, the service was adequate but will we return? Doubtful. When we dine out, we look for imaginative menus that we can't easily replicate at home, full of choices that require another trip to sample more. We didn't see that at Seared.

    Small menu and wine list to start and they were out of a key side dish at 6pm, out of stock of one of their limited wines and a bottle that they offered us to taste in it's place was "corked". In addition to this, they canceled reservation so I did not receive Open Table credit or points for the reservation. There are many much better places to eat for the price and for less in the Cleveland area.

    Power went down several times during this day and the staff tried very hard to keep everything running - probably not fair to rate the service based on that. The manager did discount our meals for this reason ( we didn't even ask or complain at all). Beautiful building, we can' t wait to try it again.

    The food was excellent but the service was not. The night we went Brecksville sufered 2 power outagious.(Saturday 4/21/12). Our dinner took 3 and 1/2 hours. The waitress was bringing the food to us one plate at a time. We were asked if we needed water and the glasses were brought to the table one at a time. We were asked if we need bread at least 6 times before we actually were brought it. I know there was a party of 50 upstairs but you did not need 3 people at the front desk. One person could have been bringing the water and another the bread. There were other people that had the same complaint us our table. Our waitress was a gem but wokring with no back up, no trays, not carts to place the food on she was hampered.

    This was our second attempt to eat at this restaurant. 15 minutes seated no service, went to hostess stand and asked if we had a server. Manager came to table to apologize, then server came took drink orders. Her first words out of her mouth were I would usually bring bread to the table but we are out of it. 15 minutes later still no drinks watched server bring drinks to all the tables around us. She then came to the table and still no drinks, she said bar was backed up. Needless to say we left once again with out eating. We will not return to this restaurant. I have been in this business for a long time and they are in over their heads.

Being a regular from the old Spanish Tavern days, I still love the atmosphere and rustic feel of this restaurant. Found it to be a little on the pricey side.

    We made the mistake of booking an Easter dinner reservation for 5 people after the all day buffet they had. The service was slow, and there were only three other tables occupied in the dining room. I knew we were in trouble when server said "we warmed up some bread for you.". Old, dried bread obviously heated after it was sliced. All meals were a disappointment and our entire dinner was only worth half of what we paid. We won't be back. They either need to significantly lower prices or step up food selections, quality, and service.

ASKED THE WAITER WHERE THE SALAD BOWL WAS PLACED, SAID THEY DIDNT SERVE SALAD FOR BUFFET, THE SALAD BOWL AREA WAS AROUND THE CORNER BY DESSERTS. DID NOTIFY HIM OF WHERE IT WAS LOCATED. THE SALMON WAS VERY TASTY, AS WELL AS THE HAM. JUST NOT A VERY GOOD SELECTION. THEY DID OFFER FRESH MADE OMLETTES,ASKED FOR A SPINACH, WAS INFORMED THEY DIDNT HAVE, WENT FOR MUSHROOMS NEXT, THEY DIDNT OFFER THOSE EITHER. OUR TABLE WAS A RICKETTY OLD BAR TABLE WITH NO TABLE CLOTHS OR ANYTHING. IT WAS EASTER SUNDAY, AS STATED EARLIER, WOULD HAVE EXPECTED A BIT NICER.

Had to leave the table to ask the hostess for service. Not even a glass of water or a plate after waiting for 15 minutes (second time this has happened).
