I have only positive things to say about my experience here. This meal was my third and yet again the entire experience end to end was amazing. The trout on the menu was fantastic! Our server, Alina, was so great - truly a professional. I really feel that this place is the right balance of portion size to the prices charged for entrees etc. The have a touchless menu which is all online when you scan the QR code upon entry. I would highly recommend.
Very solid seafood and the service was impeccable
Great service and food. All protocols were followed.
The Trout dinner was outstanding. The outside seating was beautiful by the lake.
Loved our server Dhemail. Very knowledgeable, & friendly. And food was excellent. Also appreciated the efforts to social distance appropriately, including the taking of temperatures.
The staff was pleasant, our server, Christopher, was attentive and friendly. The meal was fine dining at its best with beautiful presentation. Also great to be outside by the river.
Always an enjoyable experience! Great food (especially the oyesters), great drinks, great service, and wonderful atmosphere! Alley Cat never disappoints. The service modifications they have put into place for COVID-19 are also great, definitely following safety standards in such a manner to feel safe, as well as maintaining a very enjoyable experience.
Beautiful view on the river. Good food, great service.
For a great view of the Flats with a great menu. No match for the service.
Great COVID precautions in place and observed and enforced by all staff. Excellent food
Great oysters, great food and wonderful staff
Night out with my daughters for 4th of July
Service was awesome, food came fast and was delicious. Good menu with many options for all diets !
Great yellow tail, shrimp. Cerviche and oysters. Great service. Let the servers wear shorts.
Great service! Good food and we felt safe regarding COVID
The service was amazing. The food was also great. We've never received our meal so fast like we did here. We can not wait to go back
Enjoyed a nice bottle of Prosecco and some oysters at a table outside. The server was very attentive and friendly.
Good and unique food and well made drinks. On this occasion our service was very slow on the upstairs deck. They brought my wife the wrong salad but quickly fixed the issue.
Just a perfect lunch on a sunny day along the River.
Food, service and ambience perfect.
An absolute jewel in the Flats.
Food was great and I especially appreciate their COVID precautions!
Took my wife for her birthday. They did a temperature check at the entrance. Also required masks whenever you're not at your table. All good with us! We sat on the lower level patio. View was great. Drinks were excellent. Our favorite was the Lakewood Derby! Wife loved the scallops and I enjoyed the crab cake. Would highly recommend for any seafood lover!
This was our second visit. The food was fantastic. We tried lots of menu items.
However, we might not return. It was crazy noisy. Maybe it would be better in the winter. The flats was filled with fools not wearing masks & not socially distancing. I wish everyone would take it in - it's not a joke!
Had a fantastic anniversary dinner! Food and view were perfect. Will definitely being returning!
Actually, I wasn’t impressed prior to Covid-19. For some reason, having a smaller menu and very polished staff made the difference. Wonderful food and delightful staff. I will be back. .
Our waiter was awesome!
We were out on the deck on a beautiful night. Everything was great. Kudos for the Covid protocols in place: masks required, temp taking. We appreciated it. Food was wonderful, as always!
it is very nice eating on the river there. the bar across the street was annoying blasting their music. they must think everyone likes that. Ally cat has excellent food and if i go back I will order just one entree and 2 apps. the lobster roll was excellent btw. great wine list too.
We sat on the patio and had a wonderful dinner. The food and service were both excellent!
Some of the staff were out right rude!!! My group TOTALLY understands the reason and concept of wearing a 😷 mask ( 2 hospital employees) . But 1 guest was rudely scolded for going to the bathroom without a mask!! He wanted to leave right then at that moment upon returning to table!! And 2 of us also got unfriendly comments for wandering with out a mask!! The busgirl had no personality- I didn’t mean to bother her by asking for butter 🧈! Waitress was wonderful, it seemed like she was the only pleasant person!! Not the most relaxing dining experience! You need to train your floor staff in hospitality!! To be clear- having to wear a face mask is not the problem!! The problem is WANTING to leave immediately before your main course is served because of rude staff speaking to you in such a manner and with such arrogance
Right by the lake, it was so pleasant. I would recommend the place, and I myself would go there again.
A must for us every time we come to Cleveland 😎
They were clean, everyone in masks, great service.
Wonderful staff, beautiful view, cool drinks, and delicious food.
My wife and I took the in-laws to dinner. It was their 1st time out to dinner since COVID-19 hit. The whole experience for us all was fantastic. They were excellent/patient with all of our Concerns. Clean and thorough. The food and service was excellent. I look forward to our next visit!
Vincent was our server and he was outstanding! Kind and helpful and helped us make our food selections. The young lady that checked us in was also kind and helped us with the ap on our phones to get the menus, she was very patient! The food was delicious! I highly recommend the mussels! We never had better! We definitely will return!
This was our first time here. From the minute we got to the restaurant we were greeted with a kind hostess, a very accommodating maitre d', in which I wanted to sit along the water and he gave options- that is nice touch. Our server, Kate (I think) was so nice and offered amazing service. Not only that, but the servers who walked past our table made a couple nice comments on my wardrobe... :) and the managers made a point to come up to our table to see how everything was going. I appreciate kindness, good service, and a restaurant that hires great staff... it really reflects how the place is run. I didn't mention the food yet... EVERYTHING we got was MOST DELICIOUS- ceviche, calamari, lobster rolls, and clam chowder. We will definitely be back!!
We typically love Alley Cat, but this visit was very disappointing. Food was overly salty and coated in tons of butter/oil. The bread they brought to the table was so dry that it was inedible. Their cocktails are delicious and the views are always amazing.
Best place ever, we go twice a month. Love, love, love it!!
Food was very good, lovely atmosphere on patio overlooking river. Good precautions taken, temp taken at door, servers masked, good social distancing
My family and I were in town for a softball tournament over the same weekend my wife and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary. I found the Alley Cat online and made our reservations based on the casual attire and the location downtown. The food, the service and the atmosphere were all outstanding! The calamari, lobster roll, oysters and mussels were just fantastic. We were craving the same food the next day. We will certainly be back even though we are from Detroit. Great job Alley Cat!
Great ambiance on a summer night to enjoy the views of the Cuyahoga River. The food was as amazing as the views. I loved the stuffed oysters and scallops!
