    Section we were seated in was crowded and extremely noisy. Had a hard time speaking to my daughter. Our server was awesome! Remembered we were celebrating my daughter’s birthday and put candles on her brownie dessert. Did not like having to chase an ant off our table. Food was very good. View of the river lovely.

    Our food tasted good. Our party all ordered the lunch combos. The 1/2 sandwich is a small slider, but tasty. The other 1/2 portions were small. The avocado chicken flat bread was skimpy, very little chicken, tiny Caesar salad portion. We felt like $16 was too much for what we got. Still, the service was good and atmosphere was good. Prices have gone up everywhere, so this may simply be what it will be. For me, the value wasn't there this time and I'll go elsewhere or order something other than the lunch combo.

    Beautiful place on the Cuyahoga River (not the falls) The flatbread pizza was very tasty, the salmon and pea pods were excellent, but I have to say that the orzo was bland. Maybe ask for a substitution or get the salmon on a salad

    The salad and soup came out with the entrees. Soup was cold. Sent both back and had them taken off the bill. Potatoes were cold on one dish. Manager stopped by and we politely told him these issues. He said they would make it right. But nothing was done. Making it right would have been to take something off the bill or offer a free appetizer or drink for another visit. We have been there before with no issues.

    An hour after ordering we asked our waitress where our food was, she said it would be out shortly. 15 minutes later asked again and she said she would go check on it and of course came out with the food. We had been there for 2 hours at that point. No one in my party could eat their food. I felt horrible all of it went to waste. Our food sat under the heat lamps for well over 45minutes. We ended up not eating and left. I will never be returning to burntwood tavern or any other restaurant affiliated with them. They did not have a manager there and the service kept getting worse and worse. I could understand if it was a busy Friday or Saturday night and had to wait an hour for food and it came out fresh, but no one was seated at a table next to another party that’s how little people were there, it was a Tuesday night so we didn’t expect it to be busy which was fine.

    I have given Burntwood multiple chances, and I have yet to receive good service there. During our most recent visit, our waiter took a really long time to come to our table and it took forever to get our drinks and food. When 3 out of 4 of our meals arrived, our waiter never mentioned anything about mine missing. In fact, he came to ask how our food was, and never gave it a thought that I had no food. I had to kindly ask where my meal was and strangely enough, he brought it out moments later. Really regret coming here for my birthday meal, as it was never mentioned despite putting it on our reservation. The service here just isn't good. The waiters are never friendly. The food is inconsistent (the house salad with chicken I got yesterday was very different from the same meal during my previous visit). This place is overpriced and I would never recommend it to anyone.

    Absolutely one of the worst dining experiences I have had in a long time. We had a reservation at 7pm (so not a surprise for the restaurant, or even late in the evening). We were told, after we started to order, that they were out of lettuce for all of their salads. How is that even possible?! They were also out of lemons, and every other vegetable on their menu except for sugar snap peas. There was no way to eat healthy, and this was primarily the reason we chose this restaurant versus some of the other lovely options in the area. The manager was barely apologetic and only offered to comp our appetizer. The shrimp tacos that we each ordered looked like something a 10-year-old put together - a couple deep fried shrimp and coleslaw in each one. I will never be dining here again and will try to spread the word about it so that others don’t make the same mistake!

    My salad came out later than my co-workers food and it took quite a while for it to be made. Thank goodness ordered an appetizer to eat while waiting for my salad. It was a bit too loud in the area we were seated (bar side) because the entire room is all wooden. Not sure if anything can be done for the noise.

    We made reservations for my daughter's first communion. It didn't seem to busy when we got there and we were immediately greeted and told our table was waiting. Taking into consideration the lack of servers in the industry the one we had must have been a bit inexperienced. He came to take our order and they hadn't even given us a menu. We had to remind him to give us straws. Half the tables food came out almost 10 minutes before the other half and it was mediocre at best, mostly because it was not hot. Another server offered to clear some of the dirty plates after we were finished eating and I got up to get additional forks and small plates for a cake we brought since we couldn't seem to flag our server down. Disappointed and probably will not return as we had a similar experience around Christmas and thought we'd give it another try. Not worth it.

    The servers seemed confused on a lot of things. Bloody Mary Bar lot of items not available. We waited a LONG time for our drinks. One person in our party ordered a cranberry juice. Had to ask for it 3 times. Brunch menu. I ordered Chicken and Waffles but was told not available-many other customers were receiving. Coffee was served in a cup with lipstick. My refill was like warm water. We understand the challenges in the service industry right now. We had a lovely table and had a great time with our friends. We go to Burntwood frequently.

    Rude hosts that don’t smile or greet you just basically acted like I didn’t belong there even though I had a reservation. I requested outdoor seating and was told the patio was full and I’d have to wait an hour when there were only 3 guests outside. My server was nice and snuck me outside to a better table. Food was ok but won’t be back.

    Burntwood is great for cocktails and apps, but don’t waste $39 on the brunch buffet. The serving dishes were empty, the prime rib was raw, not rare. The plates were filthy. They looked like they had been scraped, but not washed. The server said the dish washer was having a bad day. Nothing tasted good. The desserts looked like they were bought at Sam’s Club. Cookies and brownies. Not what you expect for $39. I ordered a cocktail, but never got it. I’ll go back for cocktails though. They have the best view of the river.

    I hesitate to write this review because I think our experience was unique due to the nature of it being a holiday buffet. I've been to Burntwood in fairlawn before and had no issues. But for the Easter buffet at $39/person, I was shocked at what it was for the price. Half of the food was not available multiples times we went up to the buffet. What was there was cold mostly. Everything was a mess. It was so crowded and difficult to even get to the areas where food was being served. The "dessert" was some dry cookies and various other generic pastries. When I hesitantly mentioned to our server when she asked how it was, that the food was cold and much better as not available, she was incredibly rude and dismissive. Overall, this was a waste of money I really didn't have to waste-especially for my teenager to only eat a plate of $40 fruit. I just wanted to have a nice Easter brunch with my kids and it was very disappointing.

    HORRIBLE Easter Buffet. Food was cold, overcooked, and sparse. We had to repeatedly ask for items to be re-filled (bacon, salads, broccolini-also not edible by the way- and the beef ran out so had to wait several minutes for a new one to be brought out). The salads were so over-dressed they were not edible. The “beef” was tough and smoked. Who smokes a beef tenderloin? The chef couldn’t even cut it. The plates were slimy (like someone just wiped them off or did so with a soiled rag). The serving utensils were disgusting. They hadn’t been changed out and were caked with 3 hours of food buildup. Our waitress Kate told us the manager would be over and the manager never came. We were given a $50 future credit. Really? What makes you think we would come back after such a horrible experience? The $50 should have been taken off our bill if you wanted us to come back! I am a longtime, regular customer and I can attest that this venue has gone downhill as has it’s reputation. The only thing that has remained consistently great is the service. One last thing, there should have been a hand sanitizer at the beginning of the buffet line. Thank God my party and I (including my 97 year old mother) are double vaxxed and boosted! This experience was nauseating.

    This was a horribly set up brunch. They had it right infrint of the doorway so everything was cold and bland. Eggs half done cold and mushy...doughy cold waffles. Cold prime rib in shavings not sliced. Nothing had any rhyme or reason. The dessert bar was a joke. Chocolate chip cookies, brownies and petite fours. That's it. Extremely disappointed. Paid $100 for two people.

    First, the service was excellent. Multiple people at my table commented on our server. The food was tasty, with good variety, and the price was fair. I appreciated the variety of mimosas available and the bloody mary bar looked good. Also, the buffet “lines” didn’t feel like a mob scene - good setup, easy to navigate.

    me and my fiancée were celebrating our 6 year anniversary and we are from Maryland. I surprised her by bringing her here and boy i hit a home run! She absolutely loved it. From the lighting to the views of the water out back. from the amazing food to the absolutely perfect service we received from Joshua. From the moment he walked over to our table and lit our candle, i knew we were in for a special evening. i don’t know if Joshua will see this or management at the restaurant but thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you and your services were fantastic and built a core memory for the two of us to share for the rest of our days. what a perfect evening! definitely recommend. :)
