Cowell & Hubbard Ratings and Reviews
Our group has not been to Cowell and Hubbard for about a year - we typically like to have dinner before a show. We have stayed away because the menu at that time did not appeal to our diverse group of a vegan and three flexitarians! But the current menu offered much to please all of us! I especially enjoyed the carrot ginger soup and the spring rolls. Our vegan friend gave the spaghetti squash very good reviews. The brussel sprout salad was a meal in itself and very tasty! And the apple cheesecake was very good and easy to share. Our server Casey was very knowledgeable about the menu and made some good suggestions. He was very attentive, prompt, and sensitive to our curtain time. We will be back!
This place has really good potential, but my husband and I had a subpar meal. His lamb was very tough to chew and had strings of tendon or something running through it. My lamb was not Morrocan spiced as it should have been, but it was very salty. Plus everything was served in a bowl with broth so the rice ended up being one soggy mess. The presentation on top was a large portion of cilantro (with all the hard stems) mixed in with glops of feta cheese that were mashed into the cilantro sort of. I managed to eat some of the lamb but my husband sent his back. Lamb should not be chewy! Prices were good and not too out of this world, but the recipes and presentation need to be tweaked some. Both the dishes needed some help in the overall taste.
Our server was very much in tune to our need to get through dinner and arrive in time for the theater. Cafeteria like seating, plain walls, didn't take much to decorate this place - nothing special. Very very noisy, but luckily we were in one of the previous vaulted rooms, therefore we could carry on a conversation. Will probably not return.
Very disappointed with the quality of the food. Everything was ok, nothing terrible, but I could have gone anywhere for food that was just ok. We ate here about two years back and the food was excellent, I was really excited to go back as I was expecting the food to be as good as I remembered. I can honestly say I probably won't be back as there are so many other great options to chose from in the area.
This is a nice restaurant very close to playhouse square. They make sure you are done in time for your show at the theaters!! The food is all very well prepared and delicious. I had the trout and my wife had the pasta and squash dish. All was very fresh. The Apple walnut ice cream for desert was delicious too! I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!
My wife and I had s very nice evening. However, my steak was cooked to perfection while my wife’s salmon was warm on the outside and cold and pink inside. She ordered it medium well. It was as if it came out of the freezer and was microwaved. She didn’t want to send it back so she just suffered through it.
Our desserts in the other hand were fantastic.
Disappointed in their gluten free options. When I had researched this restaurant, they were given good reviews on gluten free options. When we were there, they had no gluten free pasta, pizza crust, and many of the dinner options contained gluten. Only positive is they served gluten free bread.
my husband and I went for dinner before an outing at Playhouse Square. very nice meal and service. We arrived at 5pm on a Saturday....not too busy....they wanted to sit us next to a lone gentleman...but I asked for a space a lil more private....took us down the hall to a nice room that could sit maybe 30 or so....my husband had the strip steak and I had the beef shoulder. very good meals. When we left, we saw how busy and noisy the main dining area was...very glad we sat back in the more private area where we could relax and enjoy ourselves.
First time at this restaurant and overall I would give it a ‘fair’. The food was not what I would expect coming from one of Burell’s restaurants. It was rather heavy and greasy.
The first booth they sat us at was dirty. There was a gross looking comb on the floor and crumbs all around it! At that point I almost walked out as I had already lost my appetite. We notified the staff and they moved us; however, they never cleaned the area but sat someone else there.
No, I probably won’t be returning.
We were disappointed with the food, as it was lukewarm, and not up to our standards of a Zack Bruell restaurant. Service was swift and personal, but confusing with the young helpers that were server assistants. They seemed to have no direction or supervision. We hesitate to return to this particular restaurant. It may be that we were there during a busy time, as many guests were attending a nearby show, and food seemed prepared to be served quickly.
Are here right before seeing wicked at playhouse with our daughter. Food was good, atmosphere even better, location of proximity to playhouse was perfect and the valet parking so convenient. We have a gluten allergy and they were very knowledgeable and accommodating.
A group of us had a reservation before a theatre production. We arrived on time, but the hostess originally tried to seat us in an out of the way room that smelled like sewage and had no ambiance. We asked to be moved and were given a better table. The seafood was good but the chicken and steak dishes were mediocre.
We dined there before a show, so the location was great. Our food was good, not great. I had the chicken breast which was good, unfortunatly there was so much sauce in my bowl it ended up like a soup. For some reason all of our servers decided to serve the person on the right of the table from the left side. It was just really weird that they would reach over instead of walking around to the other side.
We were excited to try Cowell and Hubbard during restaurant week, as neither my friend nor I had been in for more than a pre-show drink. I enjoyed the look and feel of the place, and the wait staff was very pleasant, however you the food simply was not good...
For a main she had the Icelandic Cod, which was loaded down with a heavy cheese sauce and embattled with the the pickled cabbage for most overwhelming flavor on the plate. The fish never stood a chance. My main was a vegan Salisbury steak with coconut mashed potatoes and tofu butter green beans. I question the decision of imitating an american standard, as the impostor dish invited comparisons that it could not win. With no dairy, the mash potatoes were runny and the "tofu butter" extremely bland. I was hoping the mushroom gravy would bring the dish together, but that proved too tall a task for an uninteresting and forgettable sauce.
I am very surprised by C&W's performance as I had seen several favorable reviews, however it's hard for me to review a restaurant favorably when both main courses were a total bust. Considering the healthy competition offered by Cleveland's restaurant scene, it's hard to imagine why someone would choose to eat at Cowell and Hubbard.
