    I was pleased to find the recent renovation was an update, and not a major change to this place. Also, the service was very good, indicating that it has adequate wait staff in this day of short staffs.

    The newly remodeled atmosphere is lovely. Prices are a bit high, but our service was wonderful. Food was good, one steak was too rare. Came back too rare. Everything else was great. Newly opened, new menu, nice place, as always.

    Fabulous remodel of Salmon Dave’s! It was great to see the place full of old and new faces alike. Started with two gin cocktails - perfectly balanced and in beautiful glassware. For apps we had tuna poke, crab cocktail and fried green tomatoes (personal favorite). All delicious. Wedge Ceasar is not to be missed. Dinner was boulliabase and linguini with clams accompanied by a couple of delicious glasses of wine. Management was sure to stop by and open and eager for feedback on the new menu. Service was top notch which is always be expected from an HR restaurant. Congrats to the whole HR team for a successful reopening! Can’t wait for my many returns xx

    It was great food and service. I had been some time since I had last been there and the restaurant did not disappoint. I loved the changes and how the subtle flavors incorporated to the food just made it a great meal! We will definitely be back.

    Our service was great. From the point of walking in to our waitress, it was wonderful. The food was a bit disappointing. The lobster bisque was watery. The bread was uneventful. The salmon was excellent and the lobster risotto. I wouldn't have known it was lobster risotto had the menu not told me.

    The food was excellent as was the service as it has each time I have dined there. Was a bit noisy, but that was likely the result of the fact that the restaurant was quite crowded.

    My wife and I moved to the Cleveland area from Missouri in the last few months and have been trying out some different restaurants, one of which was Salmon Dave's. The food and the service were excellent and we will definitely be going back and, also, taking visitors to our new home there. We are interested to see what happens to the decor as the restaurant, we were told, is presently going through a remodel. Thank you for a great experience!

    Many Asian-inspired meals to choose from. We had the Kung Pao shrimp and Ahi Tuna appetizers that were both yummy. I skipped the lobster bisque (a favorite) as I decided to go with the grouper special whose sauce seemed a little too similar to the bisque. It was good but overpriced and I wish I would have gotten the bisque. One fellow diner got the Cedar Plank Salmon and found it to be a little salty. The Spicy Seafood Lo Mein was good with a very generous portion. It was my birthday and our server brought a much appreciated and tasty creme brulee.

    Food was not that interesting. My shrimp and scallops were OK. My friend's halibut, and he loves halibut, was dry and tasteless, along with the accompanying polenta. I would recommend this restaurant only if my friends really had to go to a fish place near this location and had few options.

    It was a birthday dinner and noted on our reservation. There were no extra steps taken by Dave’s staff for this special occasion. I did not necessarily expect it but in its cost and reputation, I hope they would take this step in the future for its guests. We waited an extended time to be greeted by our server once we had been seated. Overall the food was good with appropriate size portions; appreciated that after we ordered our food came quickly and hot.

    We only waited about 5 minutes for our table. I had tuna sashimi for an app and my wife had lobster bisque. Both were excellent. She had seared scallops and I had the ribeye steak special. They were prepared perfectly and delicious. Alicia was our waitress and was prompt and very helpful, very informative for only having been working there for a short time.

    The area was nice. The lobster rice portion wasn’t enough and had 2 1/2 bites of what I guess was lobster for an up charge. The vegetables weren’t tender or flavorful. I probably won’t return. I’ve had better food and ambience at longhorns.

    My husband and I got the big lobster bake. The chicken was way overdone and dry and the lobster was difficult to crack and get all the meat! Also the corn was overdone and cold. There were 6 of us and we spent over $400.00 and the experience is not what we are use to at a Hospitality restaurant! We generally love all your restaurants and would Hope something could be done renew our faith in Salmon and Dave’s!

    Salmon Dave's has become one of our favorite places for a quiet meal. Sarah, our server, was amazing and helpful. My husband loves seafood, but I do not. She gave me many options from which to choose, and I was able to enjoy some delicious grilled chicken with the pea and mushroom risotto. My husband loved his cedar plank salmon. Portions are plentiful, cocktails are well made, and service is top notch.

    My husband and I had two cups of the Lobster Bisque, which is the best in Cleveland, to start. Then we had two orders of the Tail and Clam Bakes. The Lobster was phenomenal- the best we have had in a while. Our server was attentive without being annoying. All in all a dinner at Salmon Dave’s is always fabulous.
