    Food was good ... beware sandwiches come with no sides; not even a handful of chips or a pickle. Pretty pricey burgers ($15) and cubano ($17) served on an empty plate otherwise. We added fries from apps menu to come out with food. They were good; all the food was, but there'e better value options that abound in Tremont.

    We dined with another couple, hoping to show them some of the great food Cleveland has to offer. We were not disappointed. Very tasty cocktails and a delicious meal, nicely paced. Given that it was a Monday night, and we were quite early (4:30 reservation) it was quieter than normal. The desserts were scrumptious, the coffee strong and piping hot. Overall, a well run establishment. PS. The wine list was perhaps a bit skimpy, but don’t let that deter you!

    Overall, I really like Literary Tavern. The food is great. One of the appetizers, the seared scallops is pricey for only serving two small scallops. Otherwise, the portions of other appetizers are great!

    We’ve eaten at Literary a couple times. The staff is friendly and service is good. There is a very nice menu with lots of interesting and delicious options. We have really enjoyed our experiences and the food. It’s a relatively small place and it gets crowded. Make a reservation to ensure you get a table.

    Food was outstanding as usual. Cocktails and beer were great as well. Our server was off their game though. Unusual for Literary but we will keep coming back.

    Went the evening of the solar eclipse, and despite the busy Monday, drinks, food, and service were spot-on. Cocktails are superb and they have several of their own that are fantastic. The sauce with the mussels was delicious, as were the raviolis with duck. It's a cozy bar with plenty of street parking. Great food and drinks, but you can just be casual.
