Post Valentine celebration- from the parking lot to the restaurant, excellent service. We arrived 15 min early and were able to start taking in the ambiance starting at the bar. Shortly afterwards, we were taken to our cozy table. I must say the LockKeepeers understands the importance of distinguishing itself from others. We started out with the specialty arugula salad- great marrying of flavors. I had the melt in your mouth, perfectly cooked bone in ribeye and he had the trout. Fantastic meal and superior service. Many can learn from you and hats off to you for a memorable evening!

I had only been there for lunch, so this was my first dinner experience. Service was excellent. Food was good, though not a broad menu. The cost was reasonable. We would definitely go back.

We loved our special dinner at LockKeepers! The service was exceptional! They offered us the private Wine Room, which overlooked the dining area on one side, and the wine room on the other. It was amazing!!!

I find it irritating that when I make a reservation a month in advance for dinner I receive a phone call & message left on my machine to confirm. A message to cancel if plans have changed my be an appropriate reminder but my needing to look up the number or listen to the message several times to write down the number to return the message is beyond irritating.

We frequently come to Lockkeepers, and the food and service are always excellent. On this night, we had Adam as our server. This was the first time he had been our server, and he did an excellent job for us. Thanks for always so consistently GREAT!

No one paid us any attention when we initially sat down. After 15 min of waiting we complained and another server ended up taking care of us and did great damage control as we were getting cranky. The food was good and the restaurant is cozy.

We had a wonderful time here for our special occasion. The wine is fantastic, and the food simply amazing. My only complaint would be that of my seat/location. I had asked for the most romantic table, but we were put close to the kitchen, and it just so happened that this particular booth, everyone uses to hold on to as they are coming out of the kitchen around the corner so you get jolted quite a bit. Other than that, and aside from our waitress growing more than obviously tired of my mans silly jokes and talkative manner , it was a very enjoyable evening.

Went here for a special anniversary dinner. Expected it to be a nice quiet evening. Even though it wasn't very busy at all, my wife and I were seated in a booth just a few feet away from a long table seating 15 or more young people. Seemed strange, but at first was not a problem. Shortly the noise level from the table began to continually increase and eventually included cheering, loud shouting and singing. Halfway through our $150 anniversary dinner we just wanted to finish and leave. Very dissapointing. Would not return, would not recommend.

Lockkeepers never disappoints. The food was outstanding---the long bone pork chop and salmon are two of our favorites. It's great that they offer half of the Dave's salad--the perfect pre-entree size. As always, the cheesecake is the best. Andrew, our waiter, was knowledgeable, friendly, and provided great service. The front desk staff is very welcoming and able to cope with large crowds. This remains my favorite Cleveland restaurant.

Food was good, but very pricey considering. When our food orders were brought to the table it wasn't very hot (just barely warm). Also, my husband was served a different entrée than what he ordered. Considering the high cost of the dinner, I would have expected the correct order, and a little larger portions served hot.

We were three old friends, our fourth was a no show and we had a great time catching up and celebrating two birthdays. We were never pressured to order, since we were waiting for someone. Service was excellent and the food was great. The birthday girls were given a surprise treat and it turned out to be a very pleasant lunch.
