Our Server was Allyson. She was just great!
Brunch choices were plentiful, loved the seafood option
Beef was a little too well done for my taste.
Piano added to the festive atmosphere.
We come every December to celebrate my daughter’s birthday,a lot of fun every time!

Waited more than 5 minutes for wait staff to come to table. Did not introduce himself. Took drink order, with me pointing to & saying my selection of Dunham Riesling, from the White wine section. Spouse & I had same thing. Sometime later, waiter brought 2 glasses of CHAMPAGNE & zipped off. It took a while to get his attention, & of course I was unable to call him by his name, he didn't give it! His response to error was, "There may have been misunderstanding." When I told him order was 2 glasses Dunham Riesling, he was sheepish, as he realized HIS mistake. He did recover nicely by returning full champagne glasses to us saying, "I'll let you enjoy these while I get your wine."
Later, when entrees arrived, I had to ask for lemon wedges for our fish. That request was filled in timely manner.

What can I say, It's Pier W, one of the finish places to eat in the Cleveland area, first it has a lock on location, very little comes close, sitting on a bluff on the lake over looking the city, magnifique. The service was top notch, and the food was fabulous. My wife and I enjoy fine dinning often and Pier W is at the top of our list. Enjoy everyone.

One of the hostesses at the front desk was not welcoming at all. Also there was a heater behind the hostess stand and it was blazing hot in the waiting area. Really no seating so it was awkward and uncomfortable while waiting for our seats. Our reservation was for 6:30 and we were about 10 minutes early but unfortunately had to stand and wait until 6:40 to be seated.

FORTUNATELY the food and service during our meal was amazing and it made the overall experience great.

I thought for the cost of the dinner the value just was not there. The food was less than stellar, nothing specifically wrong, but when you’re paying over $150.00 for a dinner for 2 I would expect the meals to be memorable.

I wouldn’t recommend anyone to this restaurant.

This is normally a top notch spot but we hit our server on an off night. To be fair the place was packed. It was a very special night for us- my hubby’s 50th and our server was slow to come to table, slow with drinks and refills, never told us specials and forgot my dessert coffee. Nothing huge but lots of little blips that took away from relaxing into a fabulous meal. She was very pleasant and
perhaps was juggling too many tables and not able to deliver on service.

Pier W is our "go-to" place for special occasions, such as anniversaries and lunch with friends. The decor reminds me of the dining room of a cruise ship, with huge windows overlooking the lake. The wait staff is cordial without being over-bearing. The fish is freshly prepared and all of the meals are so delicious. My friends have been here for happy hour and have said that it is wonderful!

Great location, food & atmosphere. There was live piano music on Saturday night. Just don't check your hat with your coat! When the coat check girl brought my coat back, I told her I had a hat also. After she went back to find it, I put my coat on & found my hard felt fedora, stuffed in my sleeve! It is not a flexible crusher hat, although it was certainly crushed. That put a damper on an otherwise pleasant evening.

This was the first time we went to Pier W and actually had some items from brunch that were not top notch. My daughter and I had the Eggs Benedict it was hard on the bottom and raw in the egg couldn’t eat it. My daughter tried again and still couldn’t eat it. There were a few other things this way but that one stuck out in my head, because I love Eggs Benedict and couldn’t eat it. Oh my daughter also said the prime rib was off. We were there for my hubbys birthday. He had the seafood and said everything was great in that regard. But the amount of empty dishes on brunch buffet is unacceptable and our server didn’t check on us enough, had to look for her, unacceptable for this price bracket.

I've frequented Pier W several times and have always loved it but on this occasion was somewhat disappointed.

While treating my son to dinner (who was home from the military), we immediately noticed that the water glasses had a strong fishy odor, which forced me to order the mango iced tea. The iced tea wasn't sweet at all and tasted mainly like cardboard (from the straws).

We also had to wait approximately 10-15 minutes before being seated even though we had reservations. We noticed three other parties waiting as well.

On a more positive note, our waiter was extremely friendly, attentive and helped to make our dining experience more pleasurable.
