Loud. Food tasted like a frozen pizza. Happy hour still somewhat pricey.

This is a bar trying to be more upscale with creative entrees and vegan options. The entrees were not well prepared. I suspect the bar-fare (burgers sandwiches, fries) is just fine. I would steer clear of anything else on the menu.

Admittedly, I visited Sausalito during someone else’s large party, so my experience (I hope) isn’t the norm. Despite being completely swamped, waitstaff were courteous and helpful while wading through a massive croud. The one irredeemable thing was the food. It was bland, and over cooked

Food was nothing to get excited about. I would consider it average at best. Pricing was about right for quality and quantity of food.

This was a really bad dining experience. We had five people at our table and not a single one of them enjoyed their meal. Multiple items on the one page menu were not actually available to order along with the specials for a 530 dinner reservation.

My husband compared his veggie burger to eating a patty made out of fancy feast cat food. I am pretty sure he has never tasted cat food but I can imagine how bad it tasted to make that comparison.

The first hint that this was not a good restaurant to eat at was that there were only other two tables eating on a Saturday night with multiple events going on downtown. Unfortunately because we had a larger party and had other reservations to get to early in the evening, we didn’t really have the time to shop around for another place to eat.

I would’ve rather gone to chipotle on East ninth than eating here, at least everyone at the table would’ve been able to finish their meal.

Although I had a 6:30 p.m. reservation through Open Table, my party of two was not seated until 6:50 p.m. After being seated we were never visited by a server. One walked past our table several times to go to tables of people seated after we were seated but not once asked if we had been served, etc. Finally, at 7:20 p.m., we simply left.

I made a reservation using Open Table but the restaurant did not have it when we arrived. We waited awhile as she checked with the manager then were seated at a table upstairs by the exit door to a hallway.
We then waited at our table for 30 minutes and were never acknowledged by anyone working there. Meanwhile the tables around us were being tended to. We had to flag down a server & he had no idea whose table it was so we left. By this time it was 7:15 and the Browns game started in an hour so we had to go the stadium without having dinner.

We opted for a quiet dinner before seeing Hamilton at Playhouse Square. The service was wonderful. Outdoor patio was nice, although a little buggy. Food was great - I will definitely eat here again. Very convenient to E. 9th Street, the Rock Hall and downtown Cleveland.

Happy hour deals were a good value, the food was alright but the service was lacking. Our server was aware we were going to wine and paint and took a very long time service was quite slow even though business was slow. It was a nice bar atmosphere and good for happy hour and a quick bite but not for anything more.

The service was outstanding, the food, not so much. The tacos for an app were tasteless, leaving us longing for Taco Bell. The burger was solidly in the middle of the road. The beer was cold and tasty. Did I mention that the service was outstanding?

Food was good, prices were decent. The service was a little all over the place. The mood/ambiance of the restaurant had me confused. Not sure if they were going for a sports bar, or fine dining.
