    Excellent experience. White table cloth, very nice table setting. Ciabatta with olive tapenade, and 2 other choices were delicious. Great wine selection. Impressive menu items. Incredibly friendly service. At the top of their game. Only gave a 4 rating for food because the lobster tail was too chewy. Everything else was great!

    My family of 4 plus 2 additional guests had the pleasure of dining here Saturday 5/4/24 for dinner. We were seated, as requested, on the beautiful outdoor patio. I had eaten here before, but none of the other 5 had, so I knew they were in for a wonderful evening. All 5 proclaimed it the best meal, best service, best overall dining experience they have had in Cleveland. This is a wonderful, hidden gem that I am afraid by writing this review will become more known, lol. This is going to be our new go to place for celebratory dinners. Between us we had the 20 oz ribeye, the 16 strip, the pistachio crusted lamb and one of the amazing pasta/seafood dishes. Also the beet salad and the fennel salad, both amazing. We had three desserts, the tiramisu, a light and wonderful strawberry cheesecake and a bread pudding with vanilla, cinnamon and blueberries. There was nothing more the Standard or our server (I think her name was Amy?) could have done to make our evening any more memorable. It was fantastic!

    The food is indescribable. It is a nice hole in the wall vibe from the exterior. Inside has a calm and old western style feel. It is small and intimate. The food was SUPERB! The price was reasonable for the amount you receive. I will definitely be back and recommend.

I’ve been a long time customer and I’ve always enjoyed the total dining experience, musicians who entertain & the entire staff. I can’t wait to see what’s in store out on the patio this summer!

    Calvin, our server was the best of all the ones we've had in all the times we've come there! It was like he literally read my mind on the things I wanted. From the chateaubriand steak tartar to the shrimp and lobster bisque, to the oysters to the rack of lamb, to the short ribs of beef, all was delicious. Thanks for the great food and service

    Great restaurant for a date, my mistress took me there for the first time and our waitress had the same name of my wife, other than that the food was delicious! We were a little upset that there were no more frog legs since we were planning to take some home to start a curse ritual. Overall 10/10 I’ll be back for sure, maybe with my mistress again or my wife not sure.

    This restaurant never disappoints! It’s a 45 minute drive for us to get there but we think it’s well worth it. The mix of Moroccan as well as French/Mediterranean dishes is really exciting. The owner/chef (Said)is always there as far as I can tell, working in the kitchen but also stopping by to make sure everything is fine (it always is). The wait staff is every bit as good as the food. Exciting cocktails, discovered live jazz on Thursdays, and portions so generous that lunch or dinner the following day is quite likely. do yourself a favor and go!

    We were having a delayed Valentine’s dinner. I started with New England Clam Chowder. It had a thick broth with a strong bacon flavor. There were plenty of clams in it. The serving was substantial. For dinner my partner ordered filet mignon medallions served over mushroom risotto. This was a special dish for the evening. It was delicious. I had Said’s Paella. There were large shrimp, chicken, mussels, clams, and a couple of small lobster tails in it. There may have been other things, but it’s been a couple of days. I needed a take home box. Very tasty. Service was very friendly. We will be back!

    Absolutely incredible experience for our belated Valentine's date. The food was AMAZING. Service was terrific. I might have appreciated being in the main dining room more instead of the covered patio (it's February and it was cold, although the heaters placed around did a credible job of keeping it comfortable and the staff was great about moving them around as needed for everyone's comfort). Would absolutely recommend and we WILL be going back.

    First, the restaurant just posted a new menu that we were excited to try but when we get there we were told the menu is not available because it’s Valentine’s Day weekend. Talk about disappointing. The restaurant is so dark that we need our phones to look at the menu and then the food was overly salty.

    Appetizer of chicken with honey and almonds in a delicate pastry was perfect! The asparagas soup was just the right texture and consistency. I was concerned it would be too much as the bowl was a generous size portion. My sister had the shrimp and scallops over pasta which was excellent tasting and so much she will have enough for another meal or two. I had the bone in rib eye - don't let the 22 oz fool you - it was perfect for this meal and I was able to have another as well. I love potatoes so the 3 or 4 small fingerling potatoes could have been a bit more but the broccolini was nice and tender and rounded out the entree perfectly. My sister had a drink that I shared a sip which was their #1 on the drink menu that had dark cherries - very tasty. The two square rolls were oven fresh and my sister loved the olives and tapinad served with them. I opted for the oil. Our server Jaimey (female) was helpful and on the ball. All in all it was a great time for us two widows to celebrate Valentine's Day.
