Diner Reviews
  • "We were very happy with the winter salad and calamari appetizers, the steak main, and with the wines by the glass we ordered. The tagliatelle/fish main dish was good but very salty. The atmosphere was nice, with the tables feeling private, but it was loud. Trendy, young crowd. The service was very nice but they were nearly neurotic about refilling our water glasses (maybe they knew about the salt overdose), and there was a small error on the check that was dealt with nicely but not quickly."

  • "Went with great expectations but found it over priced and over spiced and not that amazing. The restaurant itself is beautiful though."

  • "We dined at The Cleveland for about our 10th visit. They have instituted a new menu and have removed some of their best dishes from the choices. They are eliminated the Moroccan style chicken , Arctic Char, the salmon and avocado, the mushroom tart, the dinner salad, the chopped salad, all of which were excellent. They have kept the brussel sprout salad but it is now made with a heavy, creamy dressing which does not work wells since the brussel sprouts are a bit heavy anyway. The new roasted chicken is not nearly as interesting on the palate. The new pasta dish is a tagliatelle but with fish. It is not as good as the pasta from their previous menu. Doubt we will return unless they bring back the old chef!"

  • "Cleveland's Valentine's Day prix fixe dinner represented everything that's wrong with prix fixe dining: too-high prices for too-little blah food. My wife and I are big fans of Cleveland -- we've had great meals there where they give you generous portions of flavorful dishes -- usually. But this prix fixe was the worst. Not because it cost $85 per person -- a steep price for a funky local like Cleveland -- but because the restaurant failed to deliver any value. The food was bland, the portions lame, and the service incredibly slow. The Cleveland took advantage of us on this "special occasion," seeing how they could get away with the least amount of food (and quality) for the most amount of money. We left not only hungry, but angry."

  • "I loved The Cleveland because they have dishes that appeal to a variety of diets. On Saturday night I went for dinner, and the menu had a burger, chicken, fish, steak, and great vegetarian options that were easily flexed into vegan dishes (example - Brussels sprout salad with trout roe easily becomes vegan without the trout roe). Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and decor."

  • "We have eaten here several times and the food is consistently good as is the service. Very low key atmosphere."

  • "Great if you are looking for a spot around Bdwy Lafayette area. We had a table for 4 in the window (2 members of our party were late but they sat jus two of us, which was nice since it was cold out!) and in the end 1 of the 4 never showed up. They were great about it -- and we ordered a lot to be fair. Service was solid, food was delicious, and it was a nice neighborhood spot. Would def recommend!"

  • "No matter what the dish, from the sides to the entrees to the salads, one really can't go wrong at this place. This was my second time at The Cleveland, the first being for brunch, and both times, every plate delivered. Inside is a cozy environment, best for parties of no more than 4, in my opinion. This may be my new local favorite."

  • "Saw this just driving by in a cab one day. Said "That cute, lets go there sometime" As I went to high school in Cleveland so it was easy to remember the name. We went on our first date night as a married couple. It was perfect. Menu is great. Not your normal dishes. Have great pairings with each dish. Love that they use Kale. Food was excellent, every single bite. My husband and I are quite picky and thought this place was just the perfect little spot. We think it will be our new "Spot"."

  • "Delicious, seasonal menu with Middle-Eastern flair; an excellent wine list, garden dining for clement weather - what could be better. The gracious staff round out an excellent experience."

  • "Great food, casual atmosphere. My friends from out of town loved it. We had the brussel sprouts salad (never thought I would rave about a dish with brussel sprouts in it). It was delicious! We had several dishes which we shared. All of them delicious, including the french fries, amazingly delicious too. The chocolate soufflle was a bit overcooked but nevertheless tasted great. Loved the place and the service. I will definitely come back!"

  • "Inviting and Comforting we were immediately sat at the table of our choice. A few minutes later William came to our table and asked if there was anything he could do for us. The offer was honest and sincere as the rest of our stay and meal was attended to with thought and care. The food was fresh and delicious and presented with artistry. Spencer O."

  • "Well, in all our restaurant going, we've never encountered such uninvolved, "blah" service. The food (carpaccio of branzino, tomato salad, pasta with scallops) was actually delicious, and the garden setting is very pleasant, but it's hard to recommend going here based on this experience. Barely a smile on our server's face - in fact, almost no eye contact whatsoever. And when we asked for an explanation of a couple of menu items, the response was "what would you like to know"? We wanted to try a dessert, but after waiting 30 minutes from when our main course plates were cleared, we decided to leave. Overall, a very disappointing experience."
