Pier W, a landmark Cleveland restaurant, has been serving a critically acclaimed seafood and contemporary menu since May 11, 1965. Having recently undergone a $3 million interior renovation, the new Pier W resembles a sophisticated luxury liner cantilevered over Lake Erie offering dramatic views of both the Lake and the downtown Cleveland skyline.

This is one of my favorite dining experiences in Cleveland. Making reservations online is effortless with the OpenTable app. Pier W service is beyond exceptional, the drinks are fantastic and the Chef is a brilliant artist. Make sure you try one of the specials, you'll never be disappointed.

It was ok. First time for brunch and it was underwhelming.
Brunch staff not overly friendly and all food was cold and extremely small portions at carving stations. I’d go back for dinner but not brunch.

Being later on Easter some of the food display was a little messy. We had a
wonderful table set up a step or two at the dividing point of the room. We each
had the city view.

Our waitress was very efficient with any requests. We especially liked the
omelet delivered not from the kitchen.

The desserts were plentiful and very tastey.

This is our favorite spot for brunch in Cleveland, beautiful views and endless delicious food. We go especially every year on Easter as well, this year the hostess majorly confused our reservation and created a very stressful situation to get there and was not very polite. This holiday was stressful, hopefully next time will be better, would still recommend.

Sunday Easter brunch with my girlfriend represented a great amount of nostalgia. I used to go regularly with my parents for special occasions. It had been some years, and the restaurant has undergone some modern renovations, but the service and view was reminiscent. Overall the food was great with a huge variety, and the views of Lake Erie and the Cleveland skyline brought back some great memories. Definitely recommend for weekend brunch.

The meal was excellent. The lobster tails were accompanied by squash and Brussels sprouts. The squash was marvelous as were the Brussel sprouts. The steak was wonderful and done correctly. The twice baked potatoes were delicious. Dessert was the very tasty warm butter cake. Our waitress, Ryanne, was exceptional. She was attentive and gave very good suggestions. My sister was in from out of town and thoroughly enjoyed her birthday celebration. A nice touch was the birthday cupcake.

Pier W delivered excellence again for our anniversary dinner. The food and service were outstanding and you can't beat the upscale feel for a reasonable price that they offer. This venue is a regular part of our "special occasion" rotation in the Cleveland area and is at the top of the list!

It was crowded and noisy. Too bad people showed up in torn jeans and shorts. There should be some sort of dress code.
My risotto had too much butter and my husbands lobster sauce had too much cream. You’d think today chefs would be more health conscious.

We always have outstanding service at Pier W. The appetizers we ordered - shrimp cocktail and marvelous classic oysters rockefeller - were superb. The appetizer forest mushroom puff pastry was just so-so.
The Seared George Bank Diver Scallops were wonderful. The twin lobster tails were delicious as usual. But the accompanying roasted potatoes, Brussels Sprouts, and squash were horrible. Please change the vegetables. Normally the lobster tails were accompanied by Kale and that is fine. This offering was inedible. Not sure if the kitchen mushed and over seasoned the vegetables but do not serve any longer. Drinks were great and dessert was great!

We had a lovely lunch at Pier W yesterday. We were seated next to one of the front windows looking directly out at the lake and downtown Cleveland, making for fabulous views to enjoy as we had our lunch. Our server was prompt, courteous and knowledgeable, taking very good care of us. Our food was delicious and beautifully presented. Thank you, and we look forward to our next dining experience at Pier W later this month.

The crab stuffed shrimp was very good. The Tempura Walleye was not good at all. Very little Walleye and fried vegetables. Fried Broccoli, fried red pepper, fried green beans, fried slices of lemon. Like a bad experiment with a new deep frier.

Amazing view, the food was excellent. The portions were larger than I expected and quite filling. The food was prepared exceptionally and was awesome. It was a nice relaxed atmosphere with a very attentive wait staff who was not obtrusive. I had the cedar planked salmon which was cooked to perfection, it just melted in my mouth. The vegetables - rosemary potatoes, cubed butternut squash and brussel sprouts - were all so delicious. My partner had the beef short ribs, which were so tender they were falling apart. My only complaint would be there are very few gluten free options available, although I was told menu items could be customized. It left me a little nervous to stray from the items already marked as being gluten free. Definitely worth a repeat visit, hopefully when the weather cooperates for a better view of the city.
