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.

I have been going to Chez Francois for about 20 years now, ever since I moved to Oberlin, and have never had a meal that was not outstanding. The Rhone Valley wine tasting dinner last night was perhaps the best ever -- superb wines to accompany a superb meal. I have traveled throughout the world and have eaten in many outstanding restaurants. Chez Francois ranks at the top of all of them. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

The original Johnny's serving fine Northern Italian Cusine. Opening in the 1920’s as Louise’s Garden, a restaurant that would flourish into the most reputable dining establishment in Cleveland.

Disappointed in the greeting and table selection process. Waitress was good and food was good. Attention to detail was lacking... which would have gained 5 stars... things like sticky tables, more attention to us, smaller pieces of chicken in the curry, napkins and more water, etc... would have been nice details to have.

CRU Uncorked is undoubtedly the best dining experience we’ve had in the Cleveland area. There is not a better restaurant that checks every single category of fine dining. From the ambiance to the staff & service to the food & wine, exquisite!

As usual, Ken Stewart’s knocks it out of the park. Our waitresses knowledge of the menu was outstanding. So much credit to her memorize the specials. Service was outstanding. She was extremely attentive. Food was delicious as always. Ambiance was perfect. Always a fantastic experience at any of Ken’s restaurants.

Had a very good meal! Enjoyed the perch! Service was also great! Make sure you ask about additional wines that are not on the list! You would be amazed what they have in stock downstairs.
