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 asked for a nice window view, but we got the window next to the bar overlooking the woods for our anniversary. Spend $500 just on wine, and they can’t accommodate view.

The opentable reservations don’t seem to get any of the premium Seering by the windows. Understandable, views are just as excellent as the food, and there are a ton of regulars

The seafood buffet was amazing. When you can pay $15 for a 6 oyster sampler at other restaurants, being able to eat as much as you want of super fresh seafood plus a glass of champagne for $42 was a good value. The shrimp and scallop Newburg was out of this world. Fresh raw oyster bar. We will definitely be going back!

We've have gone to Pier W two years in a row for our anniversary, and it's a tradition I hope to hold on to forever. The food is incredible, so fresh, so many choices, so delicious. The atmosphere is peaceful with a gorgeous view of the water and beautiful live piano music in the background. It's a special place that I would recommend to anyone.

Server was good except she would reach over my shoulder from behind the booth to set my meal and beverages on the table. I nearly ended up with hot soup and melted butter spilled on me.

We have been going to this restaurant for over 30 years and it never disappoints. Our family has moved out of state - we still make this a necessary stop when in Cleveland.

The view is unmatched in Cleveland, the wait staff is outstanding and the food is very creative.

It was our anniversary and every table who was celebrating the same thing was asked and congratulated and thanked for coming to PierW (I did make it clear it was our anniversary to the host, as well as we had anniversary menus), on this point alone I will never return or recommend anyone go there. The bread was overcooked, the noodles were undercooked, the sauce was bland, the green beans were barely cooked. The crab cakes were great, the stuff shrimp were awesome, the lobster in the pasta was good. The noise level does not match that of the price you pay for a romantic special occasion was like you were at a chain restaurant. The kitchen staff were dropping and breaking things near our table behind the room separators almost constantly. Overall just not an experience you would want to have when celebrating a special life event.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Pier W and it was awesome! The special for 2 large lobster tails was delicious. The service was outstanding. Everything was great. Highly recommend Pier W for a special occasion or just for a nice meal.

The food was soooo good! Best seafood I've had in CLE. Also, the view is amazing! Get there early so you can get a seat by the window. They take reservations but where you get seated is first come, first serve.

Food and service were excellent, went early for happy hour which was great as well. We were there for
a birthday celebration and they were able to seat us at a window table, which was lovely. Food was perfect,
side dish w/lobster not quite what I would have selected, but fine.

Great location, probably the only restaurant in Cleveland directly on the lake with sweeping views
of Cleveland.
Excellent and delicious menu choices and an extensive wine list. Service was very attentive and pleasant.
Top all round experience with an ambiance to make every occasion special.

We were celebrating our 50th Wedding Anniversary with a couple of friends from New York city who happened to be in town. They were extremely impressed by the restaurant, food and scenic view. Also, since they had been staying in Cleveland, they had walked to different sites and were happy to get a view of town outside the city limits. We were very happy with the meals that we had and had a wonderful dining experience. Thank you.

We went for brunch on Sunday and it was hands down the best brunch buffets I have ever been to. The service was attentive but not over bearing and the food was delicious. The only area that needed improvement was the hosts. While they were not rude they were not bubbly or as friendly as I would have expected for a restaurant of that caliber.

The whole experience was quite nice with the exception of the hostesses, who seemed to have the inability to welcome or smile.

Great server, great food, great view.

Tables packed too close together for comfort in moving to the brunch stations.

Had brunch yesterday with my son and soon to be daughter in law. It was the first time I had been to Pier W for brunch. The food was wonderful, and our waiter Mike, was attentive. The view of downtown was awesome. This is my new favorite brunch restaurant.

Just fabulous. Chose for a birthday celebration. The menu was printed “happy birthday”. The seafood was incredible. The view... Dessert was wonderful. The manager, Mark, made a point of coming to the table, addressing me by name and offering birthday wishes my girlfriend. They did everything exactly right to make the evening extra special.

The location overlooking the skyline of Cleveland is very cool. Our server was very knowledgeable. If you are going for Happy Hour go early as it fills up quickly. The bar was at capacity when we got there so we had our cocktail at the table. The food was delicious and I would definitely recommend the restaurant.

Not a great experience. Arrived before our reservation about 10mins, was told to wait, the whole point of a reservation is to be sat when you come in. We waited thinking they had a seat in mind for us, 15mins later 3 people that walked in after us were sat immediately, again defeating the idea of a reservation. Finally we were sat in the restaurant closest to the bar when we had requested to be near a window overlooking the lake. No view, the people that came in after us all had seats near the windows. That aside food wasn’t great, bar patrons were loud, the service had only one redeeming quality that they wished my wife a happy birthday which I added to the reservation in addition to requesting that we be close to a window. Definitely won’t be back, definitely the obvious worst moment of her birthday weekend, for the money and sights there are better locations in the area.
