About the restaurant
"If your a serious foodie" or "if romance is calling, sail on up" - literally - to this "French gem" on the Vermilion River, where the "sumptuous" menu and "professional but friendly" staff earn it the top rating from Food and Service in the Cleveland area; "well worth the drive" west of downtown , this "ethereal experience" (the perfect place to propose!") also includes a phenomenal wine list", "charming old world dining room" and "relaxing" riverfront cafe. Proper attire required. Touché a martini/wine bar was opened in 2007 and offers a "small plates" menu and a great selection of adult beverages.

Just walking in to Pier W is always exciting. We were greeted with bright smiles and quickly seated. Kevin was our server and helped go over the menu with us and offered suggestions for drinks. Food was exceptional, we all shared our food among each other and loved every bite. Dessert was out of this world delicious. This place never gets old or boring. We look forward to our next visit to Pier W.

The Standard provided us with a very elegant and tasty meal prior to seeing a musical at Playhouse Square. They took under consideration our time constraints due to the start of showtime, but we didn't feel rushed. A leisurely meal could just as easily be enjoyed. A live musician was setting up on the patio as we left - need to remember that for the future!

This was our first time there and it was overall phenomenal! We got a large variety of things to try: cheese platter, escargot, oyster flight, steak tartar - and everything was so good! The oyster flight was my favorite and it came with 3 different sauces. We also got the duck and it was soooo good. The dessert was great as well! We got crème brûlée and the duo of chocolate (chocolate cake and chocolate mousse). The chocolate duo was incredibly rich and decadent. It was delicious but I wasn’t able to finish it because it was so dense. But overall, it was really good! Our server Keith was also incredibly friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!
