    The restaraunt was crowded. The room was too small for all the customers in it. The staff had trouble moving around. My husband and I are not seafood or fish eaters and since the room was so overcrowded the smell of the fish was overwhelming almost nauseating. I always order their chicken dish with mash potatoes and vegetable and they changed the way they make it now and the chicken was so overcooked and dry. My husband ribeye was just okay. I do wanted to thank our server who went above and beyond providing excellent service.

    Service was unusually slow. I tried the new chicken entree and while the meat itself was good, the dish was kind of soupy-even with the sauce on the side. I miss seeing the former salmon entree on the menu (with the olives). i do love this place but yesterday was a little disappointing.

    Lock keepers was exactly what my husband and I were looking for. We are from out of town, for a date overnight. The food was amazing, they even made my husband’s special order (not on the menu). The atmosphere was wonderful for a date night. Exceptional service! Thank you for a wonderful experience LockKeepers!

    We are privileged to visit LockKeepers once a month and enjoy our meals. Service is always spot on (thanks Logan) and the meal this time was exceptional as always. We appreciate all of the staff in its entirety. It takes a well oiled machine to run this smoothly. It starts at the top and works it way down. A fine dining experience that will not disappoint.

    First, let me start off by saying this is one of my favorite restaurants in Cleveland. I’ve been here at least 20 times, and 19 of the 20 I would give it 5 stars. tonight, however, is the exception. The sausage stuffed peppers were as good as always the calamari only had one piece of pepper, and one piece of garlic on the plate. The rest of the plate was full of mushrooms and olives, a bit of a disappointment. The bigger disappointment that evening was the Milanese. The veal had much more breading, than meat itself, and was overcooked. I’ve had their veal many times, which was excellent. Tonight, was mediocre at best. A bit disappointing, given I was entertaining people.

    Our dining experience at Lockkeepers was exceptional last evening. From the initial meeting with our wait staff until the valet returned my vehicle to me at the evening's end, Lockkeepers proved it deserves the highest marks for hospitality, food and drink. Giuseppe, our waiter and Alecia, his helper provided incredible service for a meal celebrating a friend's new job. Our appetizers, entrees and desserts were all presented with flair and a great level of service. Our wine was handled in the most superb manner. The quality of both food and potables was amazing and enjoyable. I shall return to Lockkeepers again when I want to relax and enjoy great food and great service in a lovely setting.

    We had a wonderful time celebrating my Wife's birthday. Giuseppe gave us great service and since it was our first time visiting, he made us feel like we were at home. The food was delicious and they helped us make sure we did not have any sea food(clams, oysters, scallops,etc) due to my wife's allergies. We will plan to visit again when we have other special days to celebrate.
