I asked the host to sit outside as we would wait for a table The host was not thrilled to accommodate or really talk to us in any way. We sat at the bar for a drink where the bartender barely acknowledged us as well. I bartend as well and I felt uncomfortable sitting there if I was a burden. The restaurant was not overly packed by any means. Service was short and bland. We were very excited for this experience but disappointed.

The staff was very disjointed/disorganized when entering to be seated. It did seem like they were over their heads based on number of reservations? We had a lovely server though - she was knowledgeable of menu and helpful with selections. Hubbies food came out five minutes before the rest of the family's (and it was Mother's Day?)? In addition, it felt like we were being rushed more than we should have that day. I will give them the benefit of the doubt though as restaurants are still try to staff up since COVID. Opportunities for Lago - we were seated in booth and it was quite dark, maybe add candles to improve the ambience. Makes such a huge difference. Treat every customer like it is their first time. Would be a special treat if you offered moms a complimentary sparkling wine with their brunch. :).

The bread and arancini were highlights but the pasta dishes we had were uninspired (way too much sauce-like soup). Good staff both hostesses and our waitress. With so many great Italian options in greater Cleveland we won't be back.

Unfortunately it seems the service and food quality have drastically gone downhill. While our server was kind, she was very inexperienced and had to be asked 3-4 times for anything, such as knives to cut our food, bread, etc. Even then only sometimes then did she bring them. We ordered a $170 bottle of wine, which we had to specifically request to be decanted. Our server brought the decanter, poured the wine and immediately went to pour the wine into our glasses - understandable but when your total check is $550+, you expect a certain level of service. Our food was undercooked, including pasta so “Al dente” that it had to be cut with a knife. Again - the value just isn’t there for what’s being charged. Finally, when the manager came to ask how the meal was, we let him know some of our concerns. The mark of good service is not just getting it right the first time, but finding ways to make it right for customers when things don’t go well. The manager was also clearly inexperienced in doing so. We won’t be back.

We went there for my wife's birthday and it did not disappoint. My only complaint was with the valet parking company - they literally forgot about us when we claimed our car - so we stood out in the cold for 20 minutes waiting before I was stunned to hear they'd just dropped the ball and left our keys on their desk. Took another 10 to get the car out of the garage. But that had nothing to do with Lago itself. Again, the food was awesome and our server was attentive and outstanding. 5 stars!

We chose this spot for a milestone birthday because we needed to dine at an off time between brunch and dinner due to an after-dinner engagement. We called ahead and were told the full dinner menu would be available, which was the main reason we chose Lago for our 3 pm reservation. We arrived only to find as of last week, they only have very very limited apps available (almost nothing vegetarian) between 3-4. We had to wait until 4 for dinner items and then felt rushed (we had apps in between). We should have been called to let us know that dinner was no longer being served at the time we reserved. We arranged for champagne to be at the table when we arrived and called ahead to confirm and it wasn’t there. Veuve Clicquot yellow label was marked up to $150, a high mark up for the ambience and quality of the food. Service was friendly but it was a challenge to get drink refills etc. We had to ask for them and sat with empty glasses for quite some time after requesting. We noted in dining notes this was a 75th bday party and the host tried to seat my 75 yr old mother and 87 yr old father at a high top on stools with no backs. They did accommodate a normal height table when asked. We weren’t comped anything, not even a bday dessert or a drink, despite the major fiasco with the dinner schedule changing and no one telling us ahead of time. We still tipped nearly 40% (we included the full price of the overly marked up yellow label and tax in the computation to be nice, because that’s how we roll)—the waiter was friendly and did his best in between his bartending duties. One of our guest’s scallops were overcooked and tough but he just ate them bc no one checked to see how our meals were. My spicy cauliflower was way oversauced and other foods were underseasoned and subbed ingredients. $750.00 was a lot to pay for dinner for 6 with mediocre food and a disappointing experience overall. I highly doubt we’ll be back. We know you can do better, Lago.
