Please call the restaurant at +1 (216) 357-2680 if looking to book a reservation for parties over (5) five guests. We are more than happy to accommodate you and your party if possible.
"Betts" is a tribute to Elizabeth Schofield, wife of Captain Levi Schofield and our namesake. The space is cozy yet airy and feels like a mix between a restaurant and a very cool home that you’d happily want to reside in all day. Betts is inspired by American dishes we all know and love but reinvented with a thoughtful approach. The menu focuses on freshness, quality and whole foods put out from a predominantly scratch kitchen. It's easy to eat healthy here and it's just as easy to indulge- the menu has something for everyone.

    Our server Jess was incredible. A lovely and engaging personality always ready to help. We enjoyed the brussel sprouts (absolutely divine with the balsamic glaze and goat cheese!), queso and chips as well as the warm pretzels for appetizers. All were delicious. Our meals were very good, too. The Shirley Temples were the best the teenagers ever had and the blood orange marg and espresso martini were phenomenal. Make sure you get plenty of spicy salt for that marg. We ate outside so prepare for lots of city sounds especially motorcycles. We would eat there again.

    Betts is making a comeback from the impact Covid had on all restaurants. Service was attentive and congenial. We enjoyed the Schofield Burger and Chicken Sammy. Drinks were excellent, especially the Smokey Boulevardier. More attention needs to be made to bringing back the once-amazing Happy Hour. Can't beat the location so close to Progressive Field.

    We went to Betts before going to the Elton John concert. About the only thing that went well was that we were seated upon our scheduled arrival of 615. It took 20 minutes to get a glass of wine delivered. It was over 35 minutes from placing an order to getting any food and we received our appetizer with our entrées. I have been there for lunch and enjoyed it. My son has been there for lunch and enjoyed it. This is my wife’s first and last visit to Betts. She will not return. You obviously knew the Elton John concert was going to bring in a crowd. You had an abbreviated menu for the occasion. And still, you could not deliver.

    We went to Betts for a pre-concert dinner. It was a perfect choice, dinner and drinks were great, and the location was perfect. The server had a lot of tables, but that is common right now, and she did a good job managing it.

    Overall we had an okay experience. I’m not sure if I would go back. The food was pretty good but took over an hour to come out. I am normally very understanding but the restaurant was practically empty, so I have no idea why it would be running over an hour ticket time on two dishes. The Brussels sprouts were good, I would eat them again. The avocado fries left some to be desired for me. The summer fried chicken was great, except they were out of the cauliflower mash, so I did not get to try that. I know there was only one waitress working at this time, but she pretty much was ignoring our table majority of the time. I wasn’t thrilled with the service because there were only like 2 other tables in there. As a waitress myself, I was underwhelmed.

    Food was prepared well. Service was pleasant and prompt. The problem was that they were out of ingredients for two cocktails ordered and two sides ordered. It became almost comical when we would change to an alternative. We were one of only two tables before a show at Playhouse on a Sunday night. The website does not represent the room at all. Employees in shorts and t-shirts. Menu items prepared differently than described or pictured. Could give more details, but there's no need. We were really looking forward to a new downtown place, and were sorely disappointed. Could have been much better, had the completely disconnected manager even taken the time to stop at the table. They have a lot of potential with this concept, but merely failed on the basics.

    The food was good, but it took a while for us to receive our food and 1 of the 4 meals received was cold, so that kind of ruined that meal. However everyone else’s food was really good and good portions.

    Would have given them a 5 star review, but we waited an unusually long time for our meals. Our server was good but the kitchen was slow. It was a Saturday night, but we waited about 45 minutes for our entrees.

    First the positive: The vegan Caesar salad was amazing! It was so creamy that it didn't taste dairy-free and I loved the roasted chickpeas in place of the croutons. Husband loved the burrata in the caprese salad, although the tomatoes were a bit mealy. He also enjoyed the poke bowl, but would have preferred a long-grain white rice instead of brown. The negative: I asked the server for a wine list and she said, "We're out of them. What kind do you like?" When I said I'd like to choose based on the selection, she got impatient and asked, "Well, do you like red or white?" I said I like both and usually select based on the offerings. I finally asked her to bring me an unoaked Chardonnay. It was fine, but I have no idea what it was. The super negative: It was so L-O-U-D in the restaurant that we had to shout to each other across the table. We remember the bad acoustics from when the space was a different restaurant, but had hoped the new owners would have installed some sound-absorbing panels. We will probably return occasionally because so many other restaurants in and around Playhouse Square have shuttered and there are so few choices for eating before a show, but our expectations will be low.

    Our server was great, but we had asked to sit outside and the hostess said there weren’t any tables available. It wasn’t crowded and we had a reservation. They proceeded to seat several people outside after. Wanted to like the spot, but that definitely put a bad taste in our mouth right from the start. The food was pretty good.

    Wish the preparation was as good as the menu sounded. I saw the restaurant on Open Table and thought the menu was great. The service was friendly, however there were obvious problems as it took an hour for food to arrive. The “Tomahawk” steak was a small pork chop, sadly overcooked and without the mushrooms. Pao cauliflower was mush. Sous vide coulotte steak was not even warm. Kitchen execution needs serious improvement. Menu is good, preparation is lacking.

    We enjoyed our pre-show dinner here. We will order the Brussels sprouts and curry cauliflower mash again but not the mac and cheese side. Bourbon was extra pricy. Valet parking is only $12 with the meal - such a great deal during events.

    Had a reservation for 6, came in probably 5 min before that and was seated. Service took a while but we understood since the pandemic took a toll on the industry... but then we ordered, were waiting for our appetizer for about a half hour and then they came over to tell us they were out of it. No biggie, they offered a free dessert for the trouble which was nice. Probably 10 min goes by and our server comes by to tell us the food will be right out (by then, it's probably 6:45 and we tell her we have to go to a show at 7 so she brings over the check to try to get us out in time. Another 10 minutes goes by and the server and another girl (maybe the manager) came over and told us they are out of the food for one of our items. What??? They offered to comp our entire dinner but we had to leave to get to the show hungry. Bad experience all around. Would not be surprised if this place didn't last much longer.
