    we waited about 20 minutes after we sat down for anyone to come over to used. was then told they weren’t making bloody mary’s (on a browns gameday) because the “bartender was too busy”. proceeded to go to the bar and ordered a bloody mary where they made it and then got questioned by our server from where we got it? waited an hour and a half for mediocre food when the restaurant was not busy. brought family from out of town and was embarrassed at how poor the service was. won’t be retuning!

    The environment and the online reviews are very misleading on how good this restaurant is. The food was poorly prepared and bland. Food is overpriced for its quality and flavorless plates.

    Early brunch get-together on a Sunday. Absolutely delicious. The Avocado toast with a poached egg is delightful. And the short rib hash with a poached egg is even better. The bloody Mary's are quite tasteful. Very friendly vibe and you can dine inside or out. A must do when you are in The Flats. Well done Ashley!

    Food was good but the singer/guitarist who was moved inside was extremely loud. Literally had to continuously lean across the talk w to speak. The couple next to us asked twice to please turn it down. No response. She was a good singer but you have to be aware of your surroundings and adjust.

    An absolute nightmare. We enter, for our dinner reservation & this girl is SCREAMING/“singing” into her microphone with her AMP turned all the way up. It was literally deafening. You could barely hear your date trying to speak right into your ear. Our poor server was having to scream, she agreed at how ridiculous the volume of the performer was. Said her voice was getting super strained from having to shout over her. As if that wasn’t bad enough, young kids (clearly friends with the singer) were hollering, whistling & making spectacles of themselves dancing. NOT what I call romantic ambiance for an allegedly upscale restaurant. The food was barely sub par, at best. Our appetizer (duck) was over cooked, brown & dry. My steak while admittedly tender was extremely fatty & my potatoes & asparagus were completely over cooked. Asparagus should be firm & GREEN, not brown & flimsy. Yuck. His risotto was dry & oversalted. Even the coffee was bitter. When I attempted to address the noise level with the manager, he got snide & defensive. NOT how to get repeat customers; very unprofessional! Never again!! Ever!!

    Fantastic wine selection for both white and red blends. My fiancee ordered the lobster gnocchi and it was out of this world. The seating is uncomfortably close together which makes it loud. If you're nosy (like us), you'll get to hear your neighbor's dramatic conversations... Lol. The restaurant is really romantic and intimate. It's beautiful inside. I got the salmon which was decent. I wish my meal would have been more elevated for the $40 I paid. All of it tasted good, it was just bland for the price. Overall we had a fantastic time. The servers were professional, kind and attentive. We also got our meals super quickly, which was awesome!

    All over the restaurant water was dripping from the exposed duct work onto tables, diners and food. Note that this is not the place to order a proper martini… had to send it back as it was green. The food was fine but not worth the price.

    Lago East BankResponded on September 5, 2022Thank you for your review. It seems you had a few things happen that are definitely not indicative of how we operate. The bartender accidentally added olive juice to your martini causing it to be dirty rather than dry and the air conditioning units had condensation due to the doors being open and the muggy weather. We do apologize that this caused you to have a unenjoyable experience dining with us and hope you will give us another shot and we will exceed your expectations at that time.

    Food took very long to arrive, from appetizer to entree to dessert. Food was disappointing as well. Service was mostly non-existent. Very little follow through and very inattentive. About the only thing that came fairly quick was the check. We have had quite a few great meals with excellent service and great food but not this time😕. Celebrating our 43rd wedding anniversary and it was a bust!

    This was our first time at Lago - we were spending a few nights in Cleveland and decided to try it based on the other favorable reviews we read here. One person in our party is a vegetarian. One of the few vegetarian options was sold out that night, so she had limited choices. We all enjoyed our meals and had a very leisurely dinner. We were there for easily 2.5 hours. (Which was great for us - we only needed to rush towards the end since we had a babysitter constraint.) Biggest (only really) complaint is around parking. Not sure if this hotel has valet or if it was the neighboring restaurant - but while there were signs we never found an attendant. And the night we were there the street parking was closed due to police order. We parked in the adjacent parking garage - which is convenient. But it was small and crowded. Not the restaurant's fault - but just a consideration.

    Aparantly being situated on a river allows a restaurant to charge $25.00-$50.00 for entrees that taste like hospital food but to protect the unwitting diner from such unpleasant experiences I think extortionist pricing should be criminalized.

    The hotel we were staying at recommended this restaurant. We were happy to try it out but was not very impressed. Everything started out well until we had to ask for items several times and the response of “oh he was supposed to bring it out to you” grew repetitive and annoying. I felt very bad for our server. She seemed new, told us she had all tables on the outdoor patio and wasn’t getting any help at all. The prices changed because the bartender “ran out of the wine we ordered” and after waiting 40 minutes for our food that ended up coming to us cold, we were done with this place. No manager in sight and not worth waiting to speak with one. It was a beautiful night and the downtown area of Cleveland we were in has so many restaurants to choose from so we’ll be happy to try a different place when we return.
