We went for a birthday dinner for my son and we all enjoyed our experience. He had the filet trio special, my husband had lamb chops and I had a filet wrapped in bacon with crab. It was delicious and so filling! Our server was so friendly, knowledgeable and attentive.

About the restaurant
Welcome to Sarita, where we are slightly obsessed with serving good food among friends and family. Our focus is on healthy, new American cuisine – a celebration of all our backgrounds and roots. The best of the best eats if you will. Lighter dishes with natural reductions, a lot of vinaigrettes, less cream, less butter — but unbelievable flavors. This is what you can expect if you choose to dine with us. And we hope you will. The name Sarita is a nod to Chef Anthony Romano’s mentor, plus the name of a song by the New Orleans band, The Subdudes, one of the chef’s favorites. The restaurant is owned by executive chef Romano. His approach to Sarita is fairly simple: to create a space that’s a reflection of his kind of place.relaxing, fun and celebrate life in the company of friends and family with good food and a great cocktail in hand.

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!

About the restaurant
Elle was created with the intention to pay homage to all that is maternal, womanly and goddess-like in each of our lives, past present and future. Elle is a universal interchangeable word that simply means "her". We created this space to acknowledge that through food and great company. Our Chef has created our menu with this in mind, as well as selecting and using only the freshest and brightest ingredients for his dishes. Everything is from scratch, and more importantly, made with love. We are thrilled to have you experience Elle. There is always room for one more at our table!

As usual we had a wonderful dinner at Elle. We love the vibe it’s a very cool, fun night of dining with delicious food. The steak & frites was the best we’ve had.

There are restaurants that have a great setting or view but lacks in quality of service or food. This restaurant succeeds at all. The view of the falls is magnificent and the food delicious. We had the Heavenly Biscuits (get them!!!), the Cedar Creek Grille Chop Salad (the buttermilk dressing was incredible!), ribs (special for that day and they melted in your mouth with a BBQ sauce that wasn't overbearing but complimented the ribs), Classic Cut Filet Mignon (cooked perfectly, tender, flavorful, and the mashed potatoes and broccoli were delicious!). For desert we had a Cappuccino and Creme Brûlée (served in a deep dish with fruit on top and it was rich and delicious!) If you like Creme Brûlée, this will be the one that all future Creme Brûlées will be judged! So we have a beautiful setting, an incredible meal, but what about the service? It was equal to both - exceptional! Our waitress was professional, courteous, friendly, and made sure we had everything we needed. In fact the staff would say 'hi' as they walked past us. Now the bill was just under $200 (we also had drinks) but if you want to splurge for a special day (it was our anniversary), I would highly recommend 17 River Grille. Not wanting to break the bank? That's ok because they have other items on the menu for less cost that we can't wait to come back and try!
