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.

We had another noteworthy experience at Pier W. The food was excellent although our server was inexperienced and didn't have good knowledge of the food (other than saying what's popular) or wine list. Cocktails and bottles of wine continue to escalate in price....not a good trend.

Our guest, from the University of Wisconsin, was blown away by the fabulous meal, service by our waiter Sam, and the view of the lake from our window side table. The fact that we had sunshine and warmer temperatures added to the experience. Several of us had something new from the menu - the blackened swordfish, the bouillabaisse and the scallop special. Two repeat offenders had the tuna. The pear salad was a nice surprise. Not only did we clean the plates but enjoyed the sorbet for dessert. Another excellent experience at Pier W.

Went to happy hour before dinner, was outstanding and a very good value. Had 5:15 dinner reservations
the price was definitely worth it. Window table (per request) was wonderful with a great view of downtown. Wonderful special occasion place.

Outstanding food, service, and environment. The Sunday grand buffet is the best in Cleveland with an outstanding selection of breakfast lunch, and deserts. We are never disappointed. The view of Lake Erie is beautiful. I especially enjoyed the oysters, poached salmon, eggs benedict, and sushi. Our server Alyson was exceptional.

The ambiance was perfect. The pianist played lovely music throughout the evening that added to the setting, but didn't deter from the personal conversations at our table. The Hawaiian tuna, cooked well-done was one of the best I've ever had! Kudos!

We go to Pier W once a year for a birthday celebration. We love it so much, we don’t want to spoil our visit. We started with salads. Love the salads! The herb dressing is delicious! Believe it or not, I don’t like seafood..I have never had a better New York strip ANYWHERE! I could cut it with my fork! I don’t know how Pier W gets their steak so tender. And, they cooked it to a perfect medium. It came with a twice-baked potato and I ordered asparagus. Sooooo good. My partner had the scallops with carbonara. Absolutely delicious! Never had that combination before because they change up the menu. So much food, too. For dessert, they gave us a special birthday chocolate muffin thing. Meh....but, we ordered the warm butter cake with strawberries. Again, it was delicious!! Pier W is highly recommend!!!!

Pier W is one of our favorite restaurants, and they are really exceptional when it comes to celebrations. We had "Birthday" menus, a special dessert for my husband, and the lobster special, which was delicious. Service was outstanding, as always.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary last Sat. night. We had a lovely table near the window. Our waiter, Sean was extremely attentive but gave us plenty of space and time to enjoy our evening together. We had oysters Rockefeller for an appetizer. My husband had the fish special and I had swordfish with risotto. We shared baked Alaska for dessert. They also gave us a red velvet cupcake for our anniversary. We recently moved back to the area after being away for over 20 years. We had a fabulous evening and would highly recommend!!

My wife and I took friends there for their anniversary. This was the first visit for all four of us. The experience was unbelievable, from the service to the piano player to the food to the drinks to the dessert. Our server, Jessica, was very knowledgeable and made great recommendations. I am looking forward to the next visit.

First, my wife loved it and we will be back. My lukewarm review revolves around a very tiny appetizer that was not good at all. Not a great first impression.

My wife's filet was excellent. My trout less so. The fish was plentiful, but really lukewarm.

The service was excellent and the small anniversary dessert was a nice touch.

For a special event meal, to be honest, I could have spent $50 less at other places and been satisfied.

I got the surf and turf. It was perfect. My hubs got the steak and it was tuff. It was also his birthday. I saw a few other tables with bday desserts. Our server didn’t do anything. He also took a very long time to come and take our order. I’ve had better experiences luckily for me to know this isn’t the norm. It was just our server.
