Attentive staff, excellent food and best view in town. We tried the appetizer: hummus, brussel sprouts and bbq chicken, and short rib as the main dish. Portions were very generous. Highly recommend!

I was so impressed with The Summer House as it was the restaurant I'd selected for my birthday dinner! We were initially seated at a table that was not very good at all and the hostess intuitively knew we weren't happy and found us a prime spot with a sky line view!

The food was so delicious and there were yummy vegan options as well!

I would definitely go back!

Beautiful restaurant with outstanding views! The servers are very nice and attentive. Menu is different with a Mediterranean and Greek feel. Very nice drink and wine list. Fun place to go with a young vibe! Only complaint is the music is overly loud and not just that I don’t care that much for the music selection, they could play Sinatra and it is still very loud!

From the minute we walked in we were greeted with smiles and warm wishes. We’re we’re led right to our table which had a magnificent view of the city (essentially the whole restaurant has a great view due to a very well designed layout. Our waitress was very nice and helpful and the food was amazing. Unique food that felt as though the head chef made each meal personally. Will definitely be going back. It was a great date night.

My waiter was EXTREMELY professional and charming! The place was really nice . The food was fantastic as well as the drinks! I really loved how the staff walked around greeting tables as well as seeing if they needed water besides the waiter. It shows you guys keep your staff working as a team! I had a wonderful time !!

Music was for night clubs, not restaurants. Loud and not the appropriate type for the dollar value on the menu. I entertain professionals and wouldn’t take them there.

We loved the restaurant - from walking in through walking out. We loved our server and the meals were great. The decor and ambiance was to our liking. The only negative for us was the cost. We'd like to go back, but for two dinners and a drink each, 140.00 with gratuity was out of our price range except on special occasions.

I took my mother to the Saturday brunch and it was delicious!! Everything was outstanding from the food and service to the views and ambiance. We both would highly recommend coming here for brunch or dinner. I loved it so much I bought 2 gift certificates to give out at Christmas. This place is a gem on Lake Erie!

The new brunch menu is a hit on many levels! We ordered the Eggs Benedict and Short Ribs Hash and a side of Blueberry Maple Sausages. The items all were well seasoned, perfect temperature, very well portioned and beautifully plated! The atmosphere was inviting and conscientious to constant cleaning and social distancing due to COVID-19. We felt very safe dining in and look forward to returning soon and try the rest of the items!

The menu is diverse - choices include gluten free and vegan - and delicious! Our beverages, dirty martini with blue cheese stuffed olives and Daou wine hit the spot. We started with the grilled oysters, smoked fish dip and wedge salad. Our mains were the salmon and pork chop - both prepared perfectly! Save room for the decadent sea salt and caramel Pot de Creme! Warm and attentive, yet professional, atmosphere. Absolutely a place to go for a celebratory evening or casual dinner and be surrounded in the splendor of this beautiful restaurant with a view of the Cleveland skyline and the impressive Christmas Wonderland!

The ambience was warm & comfortable. Would have liked to have happy hour in the dining area instead of a high-top table in the lounge. The server was knowledgeable, friendly, offered suggestions when asked. The food was high priced, but my date and I shared everything, so it wasn't out of our budget. Food was delicious, interesting, well prepared. We enjoyed the menu - not everything was just as everywhere else. The only disappointment and warning to others, dessert (apple gallette) was very bad. All dough, no apples. No flavor and the dough was just no taste. We told our server it was not anywhere near as good as the other food, and she just said their desserts can be not very good. Yet, we weren't offered something else or had it taken off our bill. Would have been nice to have some concession, especially after the total amount we spent that evening was considerable. However, our overall experience was very good and glad we went there. We also appreciate their contributions/donations to Amazing Angels.
