Sat us right at 6 when we arrived and didn't acknowledge us again. Others sat down after we did ordered the drinks, received the drinks then placed the food order and we didn't get a hello. We got up and walked out about 6:20. I mentioned to the staff we were leaving and I didn't even get a simple apology.
Great food, attentive service. Will be back.
I don't normally write reviews, but the food at this place is poor quality and way overpriced. Suggest to go elsewhere.
Once again a wonderful experience. Our waiter was attentive and very knowledgeable and offered great food and beverage suggestions. My cousin couldn’t stop talking about the Lobster Gnocchi! I have never had a bad experience at Lago.
Amazing food and service. The meatballs are a must!
We wanted a nice quiet dinner but instead we had to scream to hear each other over the very loud obnoxious soccer fans. Even after the game it was way too loud for such a small restaurant. Next time when spending over $200 I will take my money elsewhere.
It was our first time at Lago Restaurant. We set outside to enjoy the outdoors; very lovable patio with vibrant surrounding summer scenario. The food and drinks were terrific. Lago’s overall vibe is very exciting.
The down side were the motorcycles passing by very often exhibiting extremely loud music and engines. It was quite annoying, however we didn’t allow this to ruim our Lago experience. We are going back for sure.
Lago is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. We go there every Tuesday evening because a bottle of wine id half price on that night. The wine list is great but Lago stocks our favorite Chardonnay just for us. The food is excellent and we cycle through the menu. We might start with the house salad and follow it with an 8oz filet or the meatballs or the rack of lamb or a pizza. All good. The pasta dishes are all delicious. I love the shrimp scampi and the tortelloni. The salads are great. with crisp, fresh ingredients. I enjoy the Caesar with its grilled romaine, onion, pancetta, tomato, and parmesan. The servers are attentive and professional. The owners are friendly and appreciate our patronage.
Excellent experience as usual. Service was fantastic and what you come to expect from Lago. Food was excellent. Always enjoy our dining experiences with Lago. Love the patio, but was too hot to sit outside this particular day, which is hard to pass up on the few days we can spend outside in the CLE.
Great food and service. Will definitely return.
Lazy staff, poor over priced food. The best part is the fact it’s in the flats.
The website claims the restaurant is on the water. There was no water in sight. From start to finish the service was lacking. We were overcharged for our wine which we didn’t discover until we got home. It was to be an anniversary dinner which was indicated when the reservation was made. There was nothing offered to celebrate the event.
We enjoy taking a boat ride to the flats for dinner. We often take guests with us and prefer a nicer restaurant than what we’ve been to in the area. Lago is excellent. Great food and close to the boat docks. Can’t wait to go back.
Our first visit here featured excellent food, the trout special was superb, and our server was friendly, knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive to us and all of his tables. This first visit will not be our last!
This is an excellent restaurant! We are visiting from Eastern PA for a few days and wanted a good place close to our Air BNB. This one was perfect. My wife's hanger steak was juicy and tender. Side veggies had a great flavor. I had the veal tortellini. Very savory, creamy parm-loaded white sauce with pancetta. In addition, Tuesday was half-off wine night, so we got a great bottle of wine at a very reasonable price.
Service was excellent and attentive without being intrusive. Nice ambience and easy to carry on a conversation.
I rated a low 4. The food was just ‘ok’ and that’s a bit disappointing. Beside having to almost argue with the Host to avoid a sitting at hightop against the wall when the reservation table was for a standard table…not the best way to start - we were not in the best d as spirit when we sat down.
While we had great Antipasti, the pasta dishes we have were very average…so much so that we decided to stop eating and take most of it to go so we could re-season with more ingredients at home.
I don’t know what happen..we really enjoyed the restaurant when it was in Little Italy. Time to get back to making great Italian comfort dishes….your bread and butter.
Great location, good service, fun atmosphere. Had the Lobster Gnocchi, very good except the big pieces of shell in the lobster, however, it was a very good dish.
On the pricey side, but we were splurging because our Daughter and her boyfriend were in town and it was our first post-pandemic dinner out. We asked for/got patio seating. Music was loud, but did not interfere w conversation. Food was very good, service attentive,not rushed. Particularly good: short ribs and scallops entrees. Would return.
Great wait staff and food. Bar to close to dining and very loud
Excellent delicious food—everything was very fresh and perfectly prepared. Good, pleasant service.
good food,music,and service
The restaurant was very very dirty. It was clear the restaurant wasn't cleaned since the day before. The bathrooms were very dirty - the floors in the main restaurant were also full of old food and garbage.
Friendly and helpful staff. Food was excellent (meatball appetizer and tortellini.) Relatively high conversational noise level but in fairness it was 5pm, Friday, nice day, during the sushi bar hour. I suspect it would be quieter at other times. Thoroughly pleasant experience. Will absolutely go back next time we are in Cleveland.
The experience was great for the occasion. I would return here for another visit.
Food is fantastic, our server was knowledgeable and very helpful
My wife and I went for our anniversary and they really made it special. Fantastic service and amazing food.
Honestly, I was pretty disappointed in this place. I feel like for all that I’ve heard it would have been better. My friend and I had a reservation for 2 at 7:30. We got there at 7:25 and was not given waters until 20 minutes later. Other tables had been sat, brought bread and had their orders taken before we even got our waitress. It was very disappointing, after 30 minutes a woman finally came and asked if we had been waited on yet, which she then took our orders. She was very kind and made the evening a bit better, which is why the service stars aren’t 0. We got our food, and left right after eating. Overall it was okay, but I will most likely not go back. I think it would be a different situation if we were just walk ins, but getting waters from someone passing by after 20 minutes then finally being waited on at 30 minutes after being seated is just kind of inexcusable.
Food and drinks were great. We had large group for birthday and all the servers were attentive.
Food a bit bland needing more seasoning but the environment was amazing!
Always love coming to Lago - good high energy, great music, and my favorite dishes to eat are consistent!
I ordered the rack of lam with the squash and white beans and it was delicious!! They start you off with soft herb bread with oil and balsamic vinegar which was amazingly great! I can’t wait to go back!
Rushed through 2 courses within 45 minutes
Lago EastBank of Flats has a wonderful brunch on weekends with DJ music, great ambiance and lovely crowd with indoor and outdoor seating.
Foods delicious + so was the dessert.
It was slightly noisey but that is to be expected on a Saturday night in the flats.
My second time here and was really looking forward to celebrating 26 years together. Waiter was great but the rest wasnt up to the standard we remembered. Food was not worth the price this time around. I will say that the pizza is awesome but you get very little for the money.
Garlic pesto wings insanely good. Awesome meatballs and the fettuccini Alfredo w chicken yummy.
Amazing server, very knowledgeable and helpful. Service was very quick. Extremely impressed. Will definitely return
I stopped going to Lago after the Cleveland Police towed my car from what was normally a very legal parking spot. Couldn’t wait to get back to have their lobster gnocchi but was disappointed. Although the lobster was cooked appropriately and the sauce was good as usual, the dumplings were doughy. You can tell from their dark appearance that they weren’t the light and perfectly prepared like ones we normally get. Must have been a bad night in the kitchen. Here’s to a better experience next time.
Per the usual, was a great experience at Lago. They were out of a particular wine I like and the server was very knowledgeable in selecting another great bottle with similar characteristics. Food was excellent. Best restaurant in the Flats by far.
Food was mediocre at best and overly high priced. Desseet was creative. Server was wonderful.
I mentioned in reservation that this was my husband's 70 bday and asked for special dessert. That was not vonveyed to server. No waterfront that i could see
