Word of mouth sent us to Edwin's. The word was not wrong.

From valet parking to superb meals, the service was excellent and welcoming.
Our cocktails were well made and the ladies cosmos's were rated by them as top shelf.

We will be back.

What a pleasure it was to dine at Edwin’s! We were in from out of town and chose it by chance. Service and food were extraordinary. It wasn’t until the bill came and we saw that it is a 501(c)(3) that we looked up and read about the special purpose that this outstanding restaurant serves. Amazing and moving. Thank you all for the opportunity to share in your journeys in such a delicious way.

*This is the same review I posted on Yelp.
Absolutely, without a doubt, the BEST dining experience we've had in Cleveland! From the moment you walk in the door, your every wish is attended to. The BEST STAFF ANYWHERE...BY FAR! Each staff member is friendly, fast, professional, attentive, thoughtful, and sincerely committed to making your experience at Edwin's the best it can possibly be. Phenomenally prepared food, perfect portions, flawless presentation, and superb service, all add up to a great dining experience. Attention to detail is evident everywhere at Edwin's, from the friendly greetings and coat check as you enter, to the perfectly groomed yin-yang salt & pepper dishes at each table, to the freshly laundered guest towels in the restrooms...thought has been devoted to it all. Jordan Levine was our host on the evening we dined at Edwin's, and he was masterfully gracious to all of his guests. Hats off to Brandon Chrostowski for creating such a fantastically powerful force for positive change in Cleveland. I can't wait for summer when the sidewalk cafe is open outside! SEE YOU THERE!

This is an “experience” more than “going out to dinner.” The Vision and Mission of Edwin’s is reason enough to purposefully reserve dinner here. And if you haven’t already, schedule a tour on their website. In our CLEVELAND backyard is something so special, it’s a “must visit” restaurant. I am blown away by their passion and commitment to make this world a better place by positively impacting those wanting to make positive change in their life. Hats off to EDWINS and everyone who supports this mission. The food is great, the staff was all wonderful and the experience highly impactful. Check it out!

Excellent choice for a low key birthday dinner... the food, the service, and the ambiance all came together superbly.
And it is a non profit! Read about its mission on its website.

Highly recommended!

Really enjoyed the food and the ambiance of the restaurant. My only complaint was that the wait staff, although energetic and attentive, was too intrusive at times. Sometimes the customers just want to be left alone to enjoy the meal and each others company.

We had a lovely dinner with great food. The highlight was the bananas foster for dessert. My husband's steak was overcooked but they gave him a complimentary salad to eat while they prepared another one. Lots of nice attention to details and outstanding service.

Excellent preparation of some of my favorite French culinary delights. The service could use a bit of polishing, however, it is a training occupational opportunity for many of the staff. We will definitely return our next trip to Cleveland.

Only issue we ran into was that my girlfriend is vegetarian BUT also has a mushroom allergy. I would recommend including more vegetarian dishes that aren't all centered around mushrooms/include mushrooms. Because of that she could only eat a salad for her entrée or the cauliflower dish which sounded like just a big piece of cauliflower. But, I would definitely go back! The cheese lady was super nice.

This was, with out a doubt, one of our nicest dining experiences in Cleveland. The service was spot-on. And better. The bar was a great place to have a drink before being seated, welcoming.
I'll mention the wine list for it's excellence: a most eclectic selection at very good prices Over-all let me say that you won't find a more interesting or better list --given the menu and the wine's prices -- in Cleveland. Period. Menu: very French, and no secret. And very well done, as you might expect. The comments of our group -- all very good to excellent. And can you believe it, the meals actually served hot on hot plates. This group was not a naive group, in fact it was a very sophisticated group that expected excellence in service, food, and ambience . Don't miss Edwins. Do yourselves a favor and a great treat.

I had a delicious dinner this week at Edwins. We took advantage of Cleveland Restaurant Week. We started with the escargots and the soup of the day, both well prepared. I tried the potato crusted grouper and it was outstanding. I almost licked my plate! My dinner companion chose the guinea hen breast which was equally good. Our dessert choices were creme brûlée and pot de creme and both were excellent.
