    Another wonderful celebration enjoyed at Pier W! Samantha was wonderful and the food awesome. Would love to see hooks in the women's restroom stalls to hold a purse or a sweater. It's a necessity these days. Thanks!

    My fiancé and I went to dinner at Pier W on July 3,2022. Deb was our server. She was friendly, attentive, and the timing from the oysters, to the lobster bisque and then dinner was perfect! She stayed on top of our drinks, even suggesting a mojito which was delicious! Dinner and service was spectacular and we will definitely be back.

    The food was excellent and our server was extremely friendly and helpful. The only things that weren’t perfect were we found a few large bones in the Cod, and the noise level inside got pretty loud when it was full, but we overall loved it and will be returning for our next anniversary.

    My husband and I love seafood! I looked for seafood restaurants in Cleveland and Pier W was number one on every list. I made the reservation for our anniversary. Something told me it would be good because there was only one reservation available and it was for 9:30pm. Usually we don't like to eat that late but I'm happy we did. When we arrived, we were greeted and wished a happy anniversary. The menu had happy anniversary on it as well. There were so many choices that we have decided Pier W would be worth the drive from Buffalo at anytime because the food was so good and we would like to try other entrees. We shared the soft shell crab as an appetizer. I had the Atlantic cod and my husband had the swordfish. After dinner we were given a complimentary piece of coconut caramel layered cake that was not on the menu but absolutely should be. When the bill came we were surprised again! We're used to spending at least $100 pp and the bill was only a little over $100. I can't forget the white sangria, we loved that too. If you have the choice to go to Pier W or go somewhere else, Pier W is the one and only choice!

    Had a confirmed reservation for a small party. When I arrived I was told there’d be an hour long wait. We sat at the bar and had drinks until the table was ready. We were seated and a guy walked up to fill our water, but didn’t say a word to us. Twenty minutes later our waitress showed up to take our orders. It’d been almost two hours past our reservation time. By that point the entire experience had been ruined and my guest practically begged me to go somewhere else for this special occasion. I’m guessing it was an off night for them. The first time I came, service was not like this at all.

    Oysters were fantastic , service was very good , a bit loud with a big group taking over much of the restaurant , but overall very good. We did have to wait about 15ish after we got their for the reservation for the table to be ready, but I suspect this was other guests going slower as the staff moved very quickly to get it turned over and food / drinks out quickly. Will definitely return!

    Pier W may is not quite as good as pre Covid days. Main course was just so so, basically nothing to fight home about. Dessert of lemon almond was below average - NG. Almonds were hard to bite into and lemon filling was not good.

    Beautiful setting hanging off into Lake Erie! If you can get a window seat you’ll have the best views. The staff was very helpful in getting us as close to the window as possible! Food and service is top! I’d say most people are there celebrating a milestone and they try to make it feel special. Would recommend

    Everything else was good as always, but the “made from scratch” dessert was microwaved. As someone who comes here on more than just special occasions, I’m surprised they’d let microwaved food come out of their kitchen.

    I enjoyed my visit to the restaurant. My server was very attentive and helpful and the food was delicious. We didn’t wait too long. I requested a lakeside view in my reservation. The great thing about the restaurant is there’s a view from almost every angle but I was seated with the view to my back. To enjoy the view I had to turn all the way around which was uncomfortable and most likely weird for the couple seated directly behind me.

    Pier W is a wonderful restaurant for a special occasion. Many of the tables around us were celebrating anniversaries (as were we) and birthdays. The views of Lake Erie and the Cleveland skyline are unique to the ambiance of the restaurant. Be sure to talk to the sommelier to get wine recommendations. I recommend the Lobster Bisque as a starter. It is one of the best Lobster Bisques I have ever had. I also chose the daily fish offering. On our visit, it was California Sturgeon and was prepared perfectly. We did receive a complimentary piece of Banana Chocolate Chip cake as the exclamation point to our anniversary celebratory dinner.
