This is THE best brunch spot in town. Not only is an unbeatable location and view, but the selection at brunch is outstanding. I always find old favorites done to a top level while also leaving having tried something I have never had before. The staff does this brunch every week, but it always feels like a special spread. One of the best dining experiences in the Cleveland area- they never disappoint!

We all greatly enjoyed our meals and the excellent service. The only disappointment was not getting a table with a view of downtown as requested. The restaurant was busy for a Sunday evening!

From the minute we walked thru the door until we left everything was perfect! The service was great, the piano player made our night by playing all our favorites. The food was excellent in terms of price, portion size and quality....the lobster bisque is not to be missed!

Pier W is one of the few places in Cleveland where one can dine at the edge of Lake Erie and have a view of downtown Cleveland as well. The view is spectacular. The food is excellent and the service is, too. It is an elegant restaurant.

Three of us got sick in the lobster bisque with varying levels of sickness depending on size of soup consumed. I sent a message to the GM, but have not heard back yet.

Two minor complains from Sunday brunch: It was very warm inside the restaurant and the raw oysters in the half shell were difficult to eat as the oysters were not detached from the shell.

Extremely disappointed in our seating reservation. Requested waterfront table in our reservation for a 50th birthday celebration. Was not told until we arrived for our dinner that there were no tables available to accommodate, that it is first come first serve. There were several tables open on the water that were not taken when we arrived. We were seated at the furthest table from the windows near the bar where it was noisy and high traffic. My husband, whose birthday we were celebrating nearly walked out due to his frustration. The waiter was able to get our table moved over a little bit away from the bar but it wasn't ideal nor what we hoped for. We had changed reservations from Lucas due to the view. Had we known this we would have reconsidered our choice. The hostesses were less than accommodating and didn't want to help in any way. Disappointed in hostesses and reservation services. Food was excellent. Not sure if we will return for a special occasion.

Amazing food! Went there for my son and his girlfriend’s birthdays. Drinks were great they played happy birthday on the piano and both got red velvet little cake with cream cheese frosting ! We all tried each other’s dish and I must say, I don’t like fish typically however the salmon was so good I would actually order it! So don’t be afraid to try something new here well prepared and bursting with flavor!

My husband and I had our first date here 20+ years ago, currently he is contracted overseas and we make it a point to come for dinner at least once every time he is home on leave. This place holds a special place in our hearts and will forever be one of our favorite places. It not only is special but the food is amazing and the views breathtaking.

We were at Pier W to celebrate my wife's birthday and they seated us at a quiet table for two with a beautiful view of the Cleveland city skyline over Lake Erie. Everything - the food, the service, the pacing, the ambiance, the view were all top notch! Kudos to the chef and to Rachael and her entire service team!
