Excellent food and service that was attentive without being intrusive. There was only one thing we missed. Establishments like yours that originally served another purpose (Lock keeping) often have a write-up of some sort that tells their customers about the history of the building or business. We asked and were disappointed to find that nothing was available. That was a very minor glitch, but I suspect that we are not the only people who would have liked to read that history. All in all a very enjoyable experience.

Our favorite Cleveland area restaurtant. Very fortunate to have this world class establishment so close. Food selections are varied without being overwhelming and exceptionally well prepared. Service never fails to impress - attentive but never pushy. You can go alot further but you won't get much better

Our server was among the very best we've experienced recently. Was pleasantly surprised at the creative nature of the menu. It has been a long time since we dined there and will probably go back sooner rather than later.

Our only concern was how cold it was in the restaurant. The tiramisu had very little sponge/lady fingers and seemed mainly whipped cream. On the hand, the scallops were delish!

The service was the best I have had in recent memory. The service staff anticipated our every need. We ordered a bottle of wine and I was surprised that they didn't leave the bottle on the table. I thought I would be sitting there with an empty glass at some point but it was consistently filled before it was even half empty. However, the service wasn't intrusive. It made our Anniversary Dinner very enjoyable.

We celebrated my parents 60th weddimg Anniversary here. The service staff and management went above and beyond to help make this a special occasion meal for our family . They were willing to move our table and make a menu adjustment for my hard to please Dad. Great service!!! Our food was very good and nice atmosphere.

Highlight of the evening was our waitress realizing one of our steaks was overdone and without question on our part, removed it from the bill. We don't send things back, but they still knew the quality they wanted to display. That's never happened for us. That being said, the steak was barely overdone and still pretty good. Everything else was great. Even though we're from Akron, we'll definitely return.

Ul meal and service. Only complaint is that although I made the reservation several weeks in advance we were still seated near the kitchen in a booth. It was a high traffic area and staff constantly bumped my chair while going by

Nice balanced menu, a little on the traditional side. Our service was excellent. The filet was perfectly cooked. The salmon although cooked perfectly was a little disappointing as the sides were a little uninspired.

We went with family from out of town. It's the perfect special occasion place to go. This is the fourth or fifth time we've been to LockKeepers and have always found the food and service to be excellent. My brother in law had lasagna and said it was the best he's ever had. To the astonishment of our server, he polished off the entire huge portion. I am always temped by many of the entrees but usually end up with the bone-in ribeye because it is always so good and perfectly prepared. My sister raved about the veal parm (which is made with a bone-in veal chop) and my wife loved the seafood and pasta special she ordered. They have a decent wine and beer list. The dessert selection tends to be modest, but in all the times I've been there, no one has had room for dessert anyway, so....
Parking is limited, but they have free and fast valet, so that's the way to go.
It's not inexpensive, but it's not stupid expensive either, and I think a great value given the quality of the food and exceptional service one receives. Highly recommended.

Went there for my girlfriends birthday as it’s her favorite birthday. I wrote in through opentable asking for a 3x5 card on the table for her saying happy birthday. Not only did they do that but the hostess greeted us by telling her happy birthday and even said happy birthday again as we left. Jackie was our head waiter and she was amazing, gave us time to talk and have privacy but was always near by for a wine pour or any questions we may have had. She also brought out some special birthday treats for her. The food was some of the best I’ve had in Ohio as I moved here from New Orleans. You can also tell the wait staff has been properly trained with how they clear tables, present wine and bring the food to the table.

As much as I appreciate the server checking on our food and if we need anything, it’s a bit disruptive to have 2-3 people ask the same thing. Many times I’m in conversation with a client and have been abruptly interrupted. This is the reason I stopped going to another popular restaurant that’s close by.
Thanks
