    The work that Edwin’s does to help those who have been incarcerated return to the work force snd the community is phenomenal. The smiles on the faces of the staff, the helpfulness and the pride that they show is proof that your program is working. The food was excellent and the menu choices were also. The only reason I rated the noise level as moderate is because we ate outside. We plan to return many times to support your outstanding efforts. Thank you for a great evening snd dining experience.

    We chose to dine inside and were treated with courtesy, dignity and respect by the Maitre d' and the servers. We enjoyed beautiful ambience including: mini-candles, fresh florals, crisp white linen, sparkling crystal, and pleasant background music. The bathrooms are very well appointed with pristine white hand towels and a rich color scheme. Food presentation was excellent: fresh salads and delicious rabbit and lamb. The cocktails and sparkling water were a delight. Edwin's helped to make our evening on the town, first class all the way.

    We ordered the crab salad, escargot, and foie gras for appetizers. The lump crab just tasted like frozen crab, escargot was not fresh and tasted sandy. The foie gras was served on bread that was stale and the flavor was just not good. For entrees we got the duck confit and steak. Duck confit was decent and steak was cooked the way we asked for (medium rare) but you can probably get a better tasting steak somewhere else for the price. We didn’t even order dessert because we were so disappointed with our meal. Our server was not attentive enough and didn’t seem like she wanted to be there. We will probably never return, food was mediocre.

    We had a wonderful experience dining at Edwin’s. The service and attention to detail were spot on, and the food was very good. We had escargot, rabbit, duck and bananas foster. Everything was wonderful. Highly recommend seeking out this location, they are doing really good work in the community and offering a quality product. I rarely post reviews, but Edwin’s deserves to be called out. Go there if you are in Cleveland, we’d surely go back if we are there again.

    We saw a story on CBS Sunday Morning about this restaurant and since we were going to be in Cleveland for a few days decided to try it. We were not disappointed. Everything was exceptional. Some of the best sauces we have had. We had the beef tartar, the seafood sausage followed by the rabbit and the scallops. All were really good. No room for desert. The cocktails looked great and the wine list was complete and accessible. Add to that, the mission of the restaurant and it was a win/win. Wish we lived closer, we would be regulars.

    Food was okay, not outstanding. I had ordered the salmon initially but i asked the server to switch to the lamb but she must have forgotten because i still got the salmon. The food took ~20-25 minutes to come out, hence i didn't change again. Our table was quite cramped. It was very difficult for our friends to squeeze in from the sides to get in. Ambience was good though. I thought the food was too pricy for the overall quality and taste.

    My friend and I had the Frog legs, garlic, parsley, and butter as a starter. My wife had the Jumbo lump crab, arugula, cantaloupe, honeydew, and Champagne vinaigrette; his wife had the Burgundy snails with caramelized fennel, garlic, butter, and parsley. For dinner, we had Salt cured duck confit with morel mushrooms, asparagus, spring pea risotto, Rabbit braised in Dijon cream sauce with roasted potatoes, braised fennel, and two Seared scallops with heirloom carrots, asparagus, fava beans, and champagne cream. Everything was delicious. We ordered cocktails and two Souffles for dessert.

    Nice, cozy restaurant in Shakers Square. Great food, wine list. Lobster bisque and escargots to start were delicious . The rabbit was very tasty but the vegetable risotto was tasteless . It was deducted from the bill as we didn’t eat it. Service was courteous and friendly but we have to pour our own wine and they didn’t know who ordered what plate . We would definitely return and greatly recommend the place.

    Made the trip to Edwin’s after seeing their story on TV. Knowing their mission somehow makes the experience even better. We had a lamb dish and a duck dish, both fantastic. The best was the bananas foster prepared table side. Service was attentive, but not not overly so. Just right.

    First, if you don't know, Edwins "offers formerly incarcerated adults a foundation in the culinary and hospitality industries, and a support network necessary for long-term success." This is the main reason I choose to spend special evenings at Edwins over other restaurants. The menu is always interesting, and it changes fairly often, so if you don't like fish, just wait a week or so and check again, or you can always have "Le Burger" The owner usually comes around to meet the customers, which I think is a great touch.

    My wife and I eat out a lot. For our "45th" Wedding Anniversary we chose Edwins. The service, food, and ambiance were outstanding. There are FEW places that we have eaten at we could call "memorable", Edwins is one of them. The superlatives could go on, but then we would be "guilting the lily".
