    Great views and service. However, was expecting higher food quality and better options, especially considering the prices. Overall, a fine spot for brunch, but not one I’ll go out of my way to go back to.

    View of the city was really nice. Server was a bit too chatty and seemed to make things take longer by explaining how busy he was... a bit too much information -- and if he was so busy -- he should not have spent so much time with those details because we didn't really care to hear about it. Food was very good.

    Started out poorly as we were finally seated 15+ minutes after reservation in a very unacceptable table hidden way in the back, which I refused. Host said they would find a better table, which they did in about 30 seconds as there were plenty of open tables. Relocated to a very nice table with a nice lake view. Service was excellent with plenty of follow-up. Blue crab dip appetizer, hanger steak and short rib were all excellent with large portions. All the dishes were delivered hot which was impressive. We will return.

    I made a reservation for my daughter and her friends for a birthday celebration. I noted on the reservation it was for a birthday and called day of and talked to the host, who said they would celebrate her and offered dessert. Not only did they not recognize her birthday, she said they were rushed in ordering and through the evening. They were at the table less than an hour and half and told that they had other people waiting for the table?! The girls are underage, so my assumption is they were trying to flip the table for a bigger bill. Disappointed in the treatment they received.

    Beautiful setting with the view of the lake, lovely interior design that feels summery and fresh, great drinks and fantastic menu. They always suggestion is to please take down the spice level. The grilled vegetables were certainly not expected to be that spicy and the pasta with wild mushrooms it's so much black pepper I really couldn't eat much of it. But overall really liked it and will be back

    Could not be any more disappointed in the hostess staff. They acted bothered like we were there and were extremely rude. Our waitress made several mistakes, even though she was friendly. Love the view of the water and Cleveland but not sure we’d be back. Service was very slow slow with too many mistakes.

    The restaurant is beautiful but had to literally scream to be heard. Had to wait 20 minutes plus after reservation time and parking is an absolute nightmare. Food was good but nothing super special especially considering the super strong brunch competition in the Lakewood area. Prices seemed high with 18 dollars for 4 slices of bacon 5 slices of bacon it was good though but overpriced. The main meals while decent were very very salty. Waitress was nice but had to wait quite a long time for service.

    My visit with my girlfriends started off not great. We made reservations at 12:45pm for 5, but only 4 of us came. We waited for 1/2 hour to get seated. The hostess said they were waiting for a 4 top to open, when we saw plenty of other seats open. Why make reservations if you're having to wait that long? But once sat our waitress was nice. The food and drinks were very good. And the view was amazing.

    Everything was perfect until I received the bill. The system was down and they could not accept my credit card so I they needed to take a picture of my card, have me print and sign my name on a copy of the tab and then leave a tip on it. I am hopeful all went well, the system finally came back up and there will be no problem with my credit card. Maggie, our server, was excellent. You should be happy to have such a great employee.
