Our group of six had another excellent dining experience. The food and wine were excellent, the table and seating were just right, and our server, Jackie, was perfect.

This is our go to restaurant when we want to show someone the best of the best in the Cleveland area. Every aspect of it is top notch and consistent. This particular night was to treat our adult grandson to a special treat. He was absolutely impressed. The food is always cooked to perfection and delicious, the wait staff impeccable. Of course we will be returning for more of what this restaurant has to offer.

The service was very nice and always kept up with our needs. Food came out fast was absolutely delicious. The desert the cranbulay was amazing. Me and my wife had a very great time on our romantic date. The setting mood atmosphere is all very romantic. We loved it and will return.

This is the best restaurants in the area. Flavors are just right and hit the spot every time. Great service and love their chocolate mousse cake as final dessert.
The fillet mignon was tender and good with wine.

Consistently one of Cleveland's best restaurants for good reason. They have a solid menu with great dish composition and execution. We were there for Thanksgiving, which also happened to be my mother's birthday this year, and even their traditional Thanksgiving dinner was presented as if it was one of their regular entrees or a daily special. Their gift of a birthday dessert selection was a really nice touch.

We went to Lockeepers for Thanksgiving and it's our second year in a row. Due to some family changes, we are on our own now, and I am no cook :-) My dad is a chef, and I am used to an amazing meal, so the bar was set high. Lockeepers does NOT dissapoint - it was an AMAZING meal. I got the traditional Thanksgiving feast, my daughter got grilled cheese (not on the menu that day), and my husband got a filet that was about 3" thick (he was in heaven). My kids also got little kiddie non-alcoholic cocktails - which is our new tradition. We plan to return year after year. That staff was amazing and the chef really knows what he's doing! Bravo!!

Very nice food selection. Inventive and great tasting. Something for everyone to choose from. Good dessert choices. Tomato-basil soup excellent! Bread was warm and fresh. Our server Mary, was knowledgeable, friendly, helpful with suggestions, there when needed but not obtrusive. A very enjoyable experience.

Our dinner was memorable (in a good way!). Food, service, everything. The only shortcoming was something over which the restaurant had no control. There were a few loud people nearby making it difficult for us to have a quiet conversation. However, it was not a deal breaker. Everything about this place, though it is above our usual price range for dinner, made it worth it. We'll be back. If you're looking for a quiet place for your group, there are several small dining rooms upstairs.

We had not eaten at Lockkeepers in a while, but always love their food. This time was no exception. The chicken scallopinni was absolutely delicious! I swapped out the mashers and opted for the broccolinni, and it was very good. The service was spot on, too... Our server was very nice and the food came out fast. We loved it all. AND, it is almost Christmas time, which means a beautifully decorated Lockkeepers and many fabulous dishes being offered. We'll be back soon to bask in that ambiance, eat the yummy offerings, enjoy the wonderful service, and celebrate the holidays!
