    The Crab cakes are to die for! Lots of crab in every bite. Two in our party of three had the scallops they said they were very good. I had their famous bouillabaisse. It was scrumptious! Our server was very informative, with a good personality. She suggested delicious things we ended up ordering. Will definitely be back!

    A classic Cleveland favorite, Pier W never disappoints. The food was tremendous, the staff was eager, friendly and professional, the service was superb and we were constantly reminded why we choose this place to celebrate our 40th anniversary. Of all the choices available this was just the perfect choice.

    Seated when booked. Had nice corner table which was quieter. Kevin was outstanding waiter by always being around when needed. Calamari was excellent. We split a Caesar Salad which was a reasonable portion. I had the Barzini as listed. She had Salmon but switched to only with potatos and Brussels sprouts. Sprouts were flash fried and plentiful. Had the sorbet trio which were great. Awesome night.

    A very cool place to check out. Next time we go we will have to come earlier so we can see the lake better unfortunately had a cloudy day but we had an awesome seat. Food and drinks we're on the expensive side but they were interesting and delicious and we wanted to splurge a little bit for our anniversary. Would recommend!

    We were quite happy with our experience for my husband’s 81st birthday. However, as we were being taken to our table, the employee twice told my husband to remove his hat. She said hats are not allowed in the dining area. First, my husband did not hear her, so she repeated the statement several times. Second, I assumed we would remove our outer garments after we were seated. Third, my husband has Aspergers and does not always understand proper etiquette and social expectations. It was embarrassing to him and surprising to me that our greeting to the restaurant on his special day was interpreted as a reprimand. I later noticed another family enter the dining area with his hat on. Apparently he wAs not told to remove his hat- it was in for about 5 minutes after he was seated. Our food was great, our waitress was attentive, and we had a good time, except for the first 5 minutes of our visit.

    I was so happy to be there for the Sunday brunch. I needed to remind my awesome niece that she is worth everything…brings a mom of four little ones sometimes that is hard to remember. Everything was wonderful and from the entrance to the kindness of Joseph and the our waiter Emery….we were so happy! Thank you

    Me and my 3 guests were very happy with Pier W Brunch, seemed a little expensive at $55 but all in all would consider a fair price. I'm coming back nexty Sunday with another 3 guests. The on-line menu is very inviting but not available on-site. Henry Coyle

    Birthday dinner for two. The crab cake appetizer was the best we’ve ever eaten. Our entrees were delicious. The fish is always fresh at Pier W. The service great! You never feel as if they are rushing you to turn over the table. We visit Pier W for multiple occasions during the year and have always enjoyed it.

    Although we had a reservation made over a month ago, our table was outside the bar, we had requested the windows with a view of downtown. Although they explained it was first come first serve, I feel that when the reservation is made with a request should be taken into account. Our food was wonderful, I had a six oz lobster tail & my husband had scallops simply prepared. We split a Caesar salad and requested anchovies. We were charged 1.50 extra for anchovies which seemed tacky considering the prices at the restaurant. Additionally we were charged $7.50 for 2 glasses of tonic! The expresso machine was broken which disappointed us.
