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.

It was the perfect place to take my daughter to lunch since we had not been there in quite awhile. We both ordered salmon and it was cooked to perfection. Out server was extra efficient and very friendly, but not pushy.

Pier W – Revue of 12 February 2019 Visit
My wife and I are not what I would call regular visitors to Pier W, but we have visited on many special occasions over the years. In fact, we always felt that this restaurant was one of the very best restaurants within and close to the Cleveland area. We always referred to Pier W as our special place to dine. So, this week, in keeping with our established custom, we chose to celebrate a part of our 47th wedding anniversary, at Pier W.

The Salmon I ordered consisted of a rather small piece of salmon that was not very tasty, somewhat dry, and barely warm. Since my wife’s meal, a shrimp cocktail and a club sandwich, included French fries, we expected the server to ask if she wanted Ketchup. However, that did not happen, if fact two requests for this sauce were completely ignored. So she just ate the fries without a condiment.

The shrimp cocktail consisted of six large shrimp and cocktail sauce on a large bed of ice. The shrimp were very tasty, but at $18.00, we did not think it a good value.

Overall I would rate the service as poor, our server was not attentive and had to be asked more than once for the Ketchup that never arrived, and did not offer to refill our drinks without us having to “wave him down.”

One more point, I would suggest that you instruct your servers to scrape off the crumbs and wipe the table AFTER the customer(s) leave; not while still sitting there waiting for the check, as happened to us.

A last disappointment: My wife requested a box to take home two quarters of her sandwich. When we checked the box that evening the sandwiches had been virtually crushed into such a very small box that they were melded together; so we threw them out.

We enjoyed a short time in the bar area for happy hour, and everyone was prompt in service and very courteous. Our hostesses were very sweet and accommodating. We absolutely loved our server, Rachel. She gave great suggestions and was very personable. All in all just a great evening, excellent service and beyond splendid food!

The food was delicious and the service superb. Pier W has a wonderful bar where we enjoyed martinis as we waited for the rest of our party. The appetizers of brochette and calamari were wonderful. It was a great evening. We were not rushed and we had wonderful desserts of coffees and apple cheesecake. Would definitely recommend Pier W.

Outstanding, exactly what a special dinner out should be. The dining room, in early evening, has an expansive view of Lake Erie, flat and dull. When dark, downtown Cleveland is glittering, floating across the lake. The waitstaff are always present and unobtrusive. And the clam chowder - soupy, but the first taste powerful with clam. Strips of bacon. The clams themselves, delicate and tender. Bouillabaisse also delicate and perfectly cooked - the scallops, the fish, the mussels. All around are people celebrating birthdays and anniversaries, but the atmosphere is comfortable, easy. Not at all stuffy. There is jazzy music at just the right level and at 6, the live piano starts up.

Great chef, great waitstaff, great experience.

It has been awhile since my last visit, Pier W is not nearby for me and is therefore a chosen destination. We were looking for a nice couples dinner with a view, not too noisy so we could have conversation. Pier W did not disappoint with dinner and noise level. The foggy night obliterating any view of Cleveland was not under their control. Our service was excellent, the food - I had the nightly special of small scallops with a truffle risotto - the food was better than I had anticipated. My Hendricks martini was also the right size, served with a cucumber, and chilled to perfection.

Sunday buffet, full compliment of breakfast, lunch and dinner. From bagels and sammon to bouillabaisse and oysters on the half shell and every sea food delight inbetween. Omelets and Belgium waffles cooked to order and a roast beef cutting station and more. Dozens of desserts, pastries and fruits with fresh whippled cream toppings.
What more is there to say, beautiful views of Cleveland and the lake while seated at white linen tables, attentive waitstaff and delicious food!

The first thing I noticed walking into this restaurant was the incredible view and beautiful dining room. The wait staff was amazing: polite and well informed on both the menu and drink list. The food was great, maybe a bit overpriced but very good. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a date or a special occasion.

The food was good, the view was beautiful. The service however, was not good for a fine dining establishment. The bussers were attentive, but the server was not. It shouldn't make a difference whether or not you are serving a table of 4 or a table of 2. Service should be consistent. The server that we had seemed to prefer her tables of 4...of course the obvious reason was her tip. We watched as she was like this with every table of 2, while providing great service to tables of 4. More guests equals more money... well that's not always true. As a matter of fact, seeing this bad behavior changed my mind for my order.
I decided upon seeing this poor server etiquette, not to order a bottle of wine, among everything else I had wanted.
It took over an hour to get our meals. No apology was made.
My husband and I don't plan on returning. I'll stick with Lockkeepers, where both the food and service is outstanding.
