    Special place. Great story behind the place and Michael. Successful people sometimes get a bad rap but I wish nothing but the best for Tony and the entire George family. Before you trash 45 you should know what he did for Michael. Hopefully that will take the venom out of some people. Great place to go while in Cleveland.

    Beautiful environment - very relaxed & modern. Delicious food— we enjoyed Happy Hour appetizers - brussel sprouts, deviled eggs & the smoked fish dip —all very good. We enjoyed 2 of the salads - a beautiful Caesar- very unique presentation & a beet salad. Our entrees included the lamb bolognese & The walleye - both excellent. The third member of our party had the braised ribs flatbread… Which looks beautiful but beware it has chili oil on it and was extremely spicy. They kindly returned it for her and let her have an alternative tomato flatbread. We also enjoyed the lovely white summer sangria offered during happy hour. It really is a beautiful place and a nice relaxing way to spend an evening with friends. My only negative would be, as a mobility impaired person, it’s great they have an elevator, however the door to get in where the elevator is, is not automatic and it’s quite a struggle if you’re alone. But I look forward to returning.

    Great views. Friendly service. Excellent eggs benedict. Hashbrowns were mediocre. Espresso martini was good but $14 seemed expensive for a drink that was mostly cold coffee.

    We had the Lake Erie fish spread with homemade potato crisps, peppercorn filet, salmon and chocolate cake. The food was delicious. The staff was friendly. It was so noisy I couldn’t enjoy the conversation. Everything was amplified and echoed because of all of the hard surfaces. Perhaps some drapery panels on the sides of the windows, fabric upholstery or carpet runners would reduce the cacophony.

    Food was delicious but felt rushed throughout our meal. We weren’t even finished with our appetizers when our main courses came out, which then got a bit cold and we weren’t offered dessert, coffee etc.

    Overall a pleasant time. Our waitress was MIA most of the time. We had to flag her down to order more drinks and food as she would zip past our table without a glance. We were never offered coffee refills after our first glass, nor did she check on our meals after they had been delivered. Thats the only complaint. Otherwise everything was wonderful.

    Slow service - would’ve ordered more drinks but waitress did not return often. Confirmed the reservation in advance and included it was a birthday in the reservation online and when I confirmed and spoke to the hostess day prior and there was no option to even purchase or order a dessert. Server did not even mention it.

    We had a lovely time. Our food was delicious and expertly prepared. Our waitress was top notch! Though it is pricey, we enjoyed happy hour drinks and appetizer, and were most happy with our flatbreads. The waitress served us each mango sorbets as we were celebrating our birthdays (mine is 70th!).
