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.

***Please allow a little extra time due to Lake Avenue being Repaved the Weat bound lanes will be closed from W117th St. and Nicholson Ave. Please follow the Detour signs to get to the restaurant. Thank You*******

We dined at Pier W for our 39th. anniversary. Our meals were delicious (Amish chicken and cedar plank salmon). We added a mixed green salad and crab stuffed shrimp too. Red velvet creme brûlée for dessert was perfect. Our server, Terri was excellent! The view of the city was beautiful. Pier W has an extensive wine list and a wide selection of beers and cocktails. We enjoyed the piano music throughout dinner. We were happy we chose Pier W for our anniversary celebration.

Our table was ready on time, would have liked a window table but we were close enough to see a rainbow starting near the rock hall, unfortunately I can not recall our servers name but she was most attentive. Both our meals were fantastic. My wife had never been to Pier W before and we will most definitely be back.

My family took me here as a special dinner for my law school graduation. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The view was impeccable and the overall pace of the dinner was very enjoyable. Highly recommend for that special occasion or for just a superb dining experience!

Another delicious Sunday brunch at Pier W. We were celebrating our friends 40th Wedding Anniversary. It is always a perfect place to enjoy the views, the food, the service and the company. Pier W has never disappointed. One of our favorite places!

Unless you get a table by the window the restaurant is just OK. Small and tables close together. Food was delicious, but mine was served lukewarm. Service was very good

My husband was so impressed with the service, food, and ambiance! He had never eaten at Pier W before. I would also like to note that our server Rachel was outstanding! We plan on bringing his sister to dine at your restaurant. His sister is the caretaker for their mother, and this outing will brighten her day.

Did not experience any of the discourteous or uncaring treatment mentioned in other reviews. From the hostess station to our server the exchanges were polite and professional. The portions sizes for the entries we ordered were larger than expected (based on previous reviews). However, the presentation and flavor of the food was average and should have a WOW factor based on the prices (which are 5-star fine dining prices). I feel the entree's have an added $12-$15 per plate for the view. My experience was 3-star food with 4-star service and 5-star prices. It's like they're selling the view, not the food. I may go back but will read reviews for the previous 6 months to see if anything has changed.

This was our anniversary dinner. Food was excellent. Service was great until we had to ask for an extra napkin three times with no apology.
I had two gift cards. One from Pier W and another of a similar amount from Mastercard. The server used the MasterCard first and then left $28.60 on the Pier W. When I brought it to her attention, she said “Oh well, you can come back and spend it at Happy Hour .” $28.00 doesn’t go very far for anything at this restaurant. I ended up giving her the entire amount as a tip which is what she was trying to get anyway.

Two of our group ordered Salmon Salad, Medium, however it was very fleshy and we had to have it recooked. The lettuce in the salad did not look fresh. There were two birthdays that had been put into the reservation, however it had to be requested again. We were at the endo f the lunch period and when we asked a waitress if we should leave, she responded "I'm not supposed to say that. Have a nice afternoon." It was the most disappointing meal I have had at your establishment and we were celebrating birthdays.

Have been dining at Pier W for years now and it's always been a treat. Food is always good, service is very accommodating, and the view is always wonderful. I had some special dietary considerations and your kitchen willingly changed some items for me that I could definitely eat. We'll be back soon!

Food and atmosphere were as always great but the whole evening was spoilt by the waitress plonking the check down on our table when we were half way through our desserts. We had been planning on coffee and liqueurs. This is not the experience I expect from this restaurant.

Pier W has become our go to place for important celebrations such as birthdays and anniversaries. We have also gone to their Sunday brunch. We have never been disappointed. The food is terrific and the wait staff is excellent - giving just the right amount of attention without hovering. We will be going back again!

It was all as great as expected for Mother’s
Day brunch.
Our seating was for 2 pm and the piano was music to my ears.
Last seating is 2:30 pm and disappointed that is when music stopped.
So if you really really love piano music,
Check the piano times.
Kids through 12 have special pricing but
With our 10 yr old grandson being 5 foot,
He was mistakingly charged full adult price.
He had no complementary alcohol
And just ate a small plate and 2 cookies.
We really love this restaurant and have already reserved for my husbands upcoming
Birthday.
