The lunch menu offering three items together (salad, soup, sandwich) was appealing, and the service was cordial if not prompt. But the beef in the sandwich was so overcooked that some slices were inedible. Overall, I would recommend this restaurant only to individuals who find it necessary to remain adjacent to the Cleveland Clinic.
The meal and service provided by Corey was outstanding. The ambiance and cleanliness were excellent. The salads were very good but the french onion soup was tasteless and the worst french onion soup I’ve ever had because of its total lack of any flavor. The service was very lovely, pleasant and professional but on two recent visits was extremely and excruciatingly slow. The restaurant was easily 80% empty both times so it’s very hard to understand why service is so very slow. The welcome from the hostesses upon arrival is luke warm. Neither of our servers told us about the special buffet nor did the hostess. We saw it on our own and and so glad we did. The buffet was fabulous and Corey, who made and served everything at the buffet was exceptional. This could be such a great place to eat if just these few simple things could be fixed.
Good food, enjoyed!
The coffee machine was out of water. Our server was so busy. When the two folks standing at the door saw me try to make it work, one remarked: "it's out of water - just find your server and tell them to fill it". Really, I thought: you're not busy at all and you're standing 15 feet from a faucet, do you think you could trouble yourself to fill it? That would simultaneously help their far more busy colleague, and it would also allow me to leave the restaurant and get back to work. That apparently was too much trouble or they felt it was beneath them (I'm polite so I did not say anything).
Always a pleasure!! Love the Buffet!
Great service and food...price point slightly North of where it should be I think but great quality
I didn’t eat in this restaurant. I was not able to find the address. I have called them several times. No one answered. I left several messages. No one called me backI have called them several times. No one answered. I left several messages. No one called me back beard. I rated the food because it was only one way to write the review
The staff of the restaurant do not care about their customers. Do not come here, they don’t want to see you there
Waited 45 min for the last sandwich to arrive.
The service was first rate, not overbearing. The food was excellently prepared, well presented and was very tasty. A great value for a lunch meeting.
Excellent food, great selection for salads, entrees and desserts for buffet.
We went there for the Mother’s Day buffet. The food was ok and service fine; but seemed overpriced.
We came for lunch with a group of coworkers. We called ahead and they were able to accommodate our party without any issue, and we were sat immediately upon arrival. They were even gracious enough to add another chair when our group got some last minute additions. The lunch buffet was a great deal with a wide variety of fresh and high quality options, especially the dessert!
North Coast Café has fantastic food choices. Their buffet is amazing - especially the dessert table!
Great buffet—high-quality cuisine & varied. Delicious!
Lovely restaurant. Excellent service. Salmon cakes, lamb, veal parmigiana, chicken, salads, soup, Brussel Sprouts, potatoes, desserts. Consistently delicious!
Excellent location for a business lunch with staff from the Cleveland Clinic. The lunch buffet is always delicious with a wide range of entrée options and fresh, delicious salads and deserts. Excellent wait staff as well contributes to a worry free dining experience.
Great location for a business meeting held near Cleveland clinic. Met with several colleagues and location was very convenient. They offer buffet as well as menu . Great selection on buffet and made for quick meal too.
Went here for during a weekend when family was in town for breakfast. Food was good but very overpriced. Service was some of the poorest I have ever had. Our family had flights to catch so we chose to eat here since they stayed at the hotel nearby. We sat for nearly 40 minutes after finishing our meal before the check ever came. No ones water, coffee, juice was refilled and everyone had empty glasses at the end of the meal. It was not even crowded that day. The waitress was not very friendly. Was very disappointed and embarrassed we chose this restaurant for our family. Then we got the check which for 6 people had already included a 20% tip (I always tip this anyways but on this occasion the service was so poor I would not have). The whole experience was terrible. Would strongly recommend against.
Excellent food and service! Convenient too! Thank you
Our guest was vegetarian. They didn't want salad and that left VERY limited food choices. They found it disappointing.
Always a good choice!
Tasty buffet with risotto bar. Lovely selection of salads and entrees. Desserts are always a treat.
The staff is always kind and courteous.
I hope they never change.
The wait staff was slower than usual on this particular visit. I would have appreciated my water glass being refilled during my meal but it was never offered. No one checked on us during our meal either; although we did select the lunch buffet.
This is unusual relative to the numerous times I have dined here for luch,
Great food great service. Would recommend to anyone
Beautiful atmosphere but extremely overpriced! Will not go back again.
, did not wait at all for the table, food was great, server was wonderful! She managed ALL of our special requests without a hesitation, she then even brought 4 tiny little desserts to the table and said "Happy Friday! Compliments of me!" It was adorable and they were REALLY delicious! Thank you! Great experience!
I've dined at North Coast several times and always order the buffet lunch for convenience and to save time. The quality and variety of salad and entrée options is always very good to excellent. The serving staff is most often attentive with few exceptions. I appreciate the smaller sizes of desserts as a bite is usually all I want and I hate to waste food. Thank you!
I had the cobb salad which was ok. I ordered it because of the blue cheese, but the blue cheese was hard to find and very mild. The chicken was overcooked and dry. Lettuce was fresh, but I expected more for the price. If I ordered that on the hospital cafeteria, I would have said it wad a good salad.
My mom had the vegetable barley soup which had a few pieces of celery and some slivers of carrots. She was expecting more vegetables. Our server Alberto was very polite and accomodating.
Mother's Day Brunch was wonderful last year. This year not so much. No candy bar. No salad bar. Very loud.
Nice but not special.
We enjoyed the food and how attentive the staff was.
First time at North Coast and I was so impressed and can't wait to go back again. The food was well prepared and the staff were very professional.
Never disappointed. Lovely buffet. Always fabulous desserts.
The food was fresh and good. Especially for a buffet. Service was slow. All the staff would disappear for minutes. But they were all incredibly nice. We weren't in a hurry, so it wasn't a big deal. A couple people in our party customized their omelets and thought Marcus did a great job. When I need a brunch spot in University Circle, I will consider this again.
I came in with a group of coworkers for the lunch buffet during the week. The food was fresh and delicious. Everyone was impressed by the entrees as well as the dessert bar. Compliments to the chef!
The service however was terrible. We were never offered drinks other than water, we had to ask for our check 6 times before the server brought it to us. The dishes were cleared off the table quickly by the bussers.
I always enjoy dining at NorthCoast Cafe'. Staff members are always friendly, attentive and courteous, and the food is always fresh and tasty! Keep up the great work!
Server was lousy - had to ask for drinks, to be offered menu, did not get bill & had to wait cash register for her to add it up. Might give the place one more try - place/food really good - service unacceptable!
Great breakfast buffet, but a bit pricey.
Celebrated the end of summer research projects for two students in my group. The whole group enjoyed the variety and quality of the lunch buffet, with delicious choices for a vegetarian (me) and the carnivores in the group (with brisket, fish, etc.). Fresh pasta, the carving bar and the dessert selection were highlights. Friendly service, great value!
I had a breakfast business meeting here. The food is delicious and prepared perfectly. There are many healthy choices. The prices are a little high.
The breakfast selection is of good quality and variety.
Always a great dinning experience with excellent service.
