About Pier W
Pier W, a landmark Cleveland restaurant, has been serving a critically acclaimed seafood and contemporary menu since May 11, 1965. 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.

Pier W Ratings and Reviews
Every time we have visited Pier W we left feeling very, very, pleased with the just everything about your restaurant . When you compare the atmosphere, food, service etc. Pier-W is the best. I live very near to Crocker Park, in Westlake, who boast of their great food and atmosphere. However, in my opinion they do not come close to Pier - W, in any respect . Most of them are good, but none are great as is Pier-W. Dinner at Pier-W makes any occasion a special experience; even just for a light lunch. Your star rating is about *
Pier W exceeds any expectations you may have. The location is easy to get to, the view is beautiful, the décor is gorgeous, the service is outstanding and the menu/wine list...out of bounds! My Husband and I drove up for the weekend, and spent the evening of our first anniversary here. We started with the beet salad and bruschetta; both were very tasty. He had the 10oz Filet Mignon and it was spectacular. He was beside himself with how perfectly it was cooked and he specifically stated, "I've never had meat melt in my mouth before!". I had the vegetarian tasting and it was divine. Perfectly seasoned and balanced. We were presented with the menu that was printed with "Happy Anniversary" and also received a cupcake with buttercream icing & edible white chocolate medallion that was printed with Happy Anniversary as well. All food items were presented nicely by staff, and plated with perfection. You can feel the care that is taken into the diners experience in the air. We couldn't have asked for more wonderful experience on our first anniversary.
Even with vibrant restaurant options in Cleveland, Pier W is still sets the standard for fine dining experience. Great ambiance, unparalleled service and simply amazing cuisine. My Husband and I love stoping by for drinks at the Bar or to celebrate special occasions. Ideal for client dinners and spectacular views of the Lake.
From the time we walked in service was excellent fromThe hostess who took our coats seated at a table by the window with a great view service by a very attentive waitress who offered great suggestions for food and wine the food was excellent and very tasty will return again
We went to Pier W for our 14 year anniversary 1/31/18. Coincidentally my wife and I had our first date & I also proposed there (not on the first date). We enjoy it for special occasions, with friends, family and just us. The food is great and the atmosphere and view are superior. The wine selection is outstanding as well. In addition the sunday brunch is second to none and we have been around the block a few times through our travels and have yet to see a close competitor more than once. I also ordered roses (14) in a vase from our florist and had them delivered and Pier W had them on the table when we arrived (take note gentlemen). We also have become friends with the manager "Clement" and he always make a visit and a special touch and an enjoyable visit.
If I were to want anything else I would like to see a larger steak selection (22-26oz) or a tomahawk ribeye which is becoming popular at restaurants as the largest steak I had was the 14oz strip which was delicious. I would also like to see a table side caesar salad which I think would be over the top and enhance the salad selections. Just a few suggestions.
"I'll be baaack"!
I loved the new Pier W. I had not been in for over 20 years. It was sleek, modern and the food and service was excellent. It was priced appropriately and we enjoyed great bread, salads, drinks and the entrees and we will be back. I was telling friends who unbeknownst to me have been in and they love the bar area. We did not stop at the bar but we saw it and liked it. Excellent table, great reservation and hostess and just a pleasant way to have a meal.
We had a lovely lunch the other day at Pier W. I made reservations for 11:30 AM, early, and my strategy worked as we essentially were the first people in the restaurant and were seated next to the windows looking out on the lake and downtown Cleveland. Our server took excellent care of us--prompt, courteous, and answered our questions in a polite, unhurried manner. Our lunches were delicious, as always, and I look forward to my next dining experience at Pier W!
Had dinner with friends that we haven’t seen in a year so I got reservations at Pier W and we weren’t disappointed. Great meal. Our server was Jessica, she was excellent. Live piano in the background was great, not too loud but classy. Sat in one of the longer booths looking out over the night skyline. Great dining experience, will definitely return.
I ate at Pier W for the first time recently - we went for my husband's birthday, and it was great! The server was very attentive and helpful with selecting dishes (everything looked so good!), and the food was fantastic. A little pricey, so it's not going to be a regular in our rotation, but for a special occasion it was worth the splurge! I put a note on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, and the hostess and our server made a point of asking whose birthday it was and wishing my husband a happy birthday. They even printed "happy birthday" on the top of the menu which was a really nice touch. Overall I would definitely recommend Pier W to friends looking for a nice place to have dinner with a view.
Pier W is one of our favorite restaurants for dinner – and, especially, lunch. On a recent visit, we started with cups of Pier W’s delicious Lobster Bisque that is consistently really tasty – and filling. Our entrees consisted of the simply-prepared Blue Cod with (requested) greens beans and roasted potatoes that was cooked to perfection; so too was the Crab Stuffed Gulf Shrimp with lemon butter sauce accompanied by creamy mashed potatoes and Baby Bok Choy. Servings were generous, but not overly so; we opted to forgo desert this time being fully satisfied -- and full. The view is wonderful and part of the attraction of dining at this restaurant, but the excellently prepared food and superb service are really what draws us back to Pier W again and again.
We were able to get a table by the window. The views just can't be beat. The dining room was full, but we had no trouble hearing our conversation. Our server, Jessica, was helpful, friendly and attentive. The food was well prepared and just delicious. The "simply prepared" scallops were divine. My husband had the braised short ribs and it was perfect. This is a wonderful restaurant for special-occasion dining. Excellent!
