Sunil, the maitre d and Mark, our server are top notch as is the food, from appetizers to dessert! Plus we feel the restaurant is Covid A+ clean.
Mark, our server, is exceptional. He took great care of us. We are in town for my father to have surgery and Dad was in a lot of pain. Mark offered caring words and kind, incredible service. I was wowed.
I loved the lamb kebobs and tuna poke. Best poke I think I have ever had. Perfect portion.
The atmoshphere right now is lackluster in the restaurant and I think it must be due to covid. It is very bare. That said, it was spotless and we felt completely safe.
Thanks very, very much. Thanks again to Mark!
Just didn’t think the food was that good... more average than I expected
Great service. Food was presented wonderfully and tasted amazing!! Nice and quiet dining experience.
Amazing food....horrible ambiance sadly....friendly staff
Dear Megan, I'm glad you like our food and friendly staff. I'm sorry the ambience was not to your liking and I've shared your feedback with my team. Thanks for taking the time to provide us with a review! Much appreciated!
Hard to go wrong. Great bar and eclectic menu. Service top notch.

Made a reservation for Christmas dinner. Host was very nice, but as soon as we walked in, it was very apparent that this is a hotel restaurant, no ambiance, and built around what I assume is the hotel breakfast buffet. I’ll be completely honest, we should have just cancelled the reservation then and gone somewhere else. The lighting was so bright, and the decor was lacking. It seemed a bit dirty. Our server was nice, but also pushy. We ordered the seared scallops as an app, they were cold inside and undercooked. The server took them back, and then we ordered entrees. At this point I was hesitant to order any of the seafood, so I ordered the warm cheese sampler and my husband ordered the short ribs. The short ribs were good! The cheese sampler was over “warmed” and the crostini was burnt and so so hard. I am very selective when eating out, so I thought maybe it was just me being picky, but then saw a couple across from us who felt the same way. I would not recommend, nor would I return. There are many, many way better places to dine in the city.
Dear Anonymous, I'm terribly sorry that this was your experience with us and that we've lost you as a patron. I have shared your comments with my team for improvement where necessary and do not anticipate these instances being repeated. Thank you for considering us and for taking the time to provide some valuable feedback. We truly value and appreciate you. Sincerely, Sherice Holmes Executive Assistant to the Area General Manager
Three of us went for Christmas dinner. Social distancing was handled very well. We had the salmon, sausage and shrimp and prime rib. Everything was great except the prime rib (ordered med rare). Was closer to medium than too rare. Soup, salad and appetizer were good.
Dear DeniseG, Thank you for dining at our restaurant recently and for leaving us a review. I'm glad that you had a nice time with us. I'm sorry that the prime rib was not prepared as you asked and I'll be sure to share all your feedback with my chef. Thanks again for your feedback! All the best for the new year! Sherice Holmes Executive Assistant to the Area General Manager
service was good! food was nothing special. steak was cooked well, but no flavor in red wine sauce.
Dear NathanK, Thank you for dining at our restaurant recently. While I'm glad you enjoyed the service, I'm sorry that your steak left room to be desired. I'll be sure to share your comments with the chef and I thank you on his behalf for your feedback. All the best! Sherice Holmes Executive Assistant to the Area General Manager
Ambience was a little lacking; food was excellent, service excellent. Prices were high but as expected at a hotel restaurant.
Dear Rhonda, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We're pleased to hear you enjoyed the dining options and service you received from our staff but must apologize if the ambience fell below your expectations. We certainly hope this doesn't deter you from visiting us again, we'd love to welcome you back! Warm regards, Table 45 Team
Hi ChasK, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're so happy to hear that you had a fantastic dining experience and we look forward to welcoming you again. Best, Table 45 Team
Table 45 keeps getting better and better. Appetizers included calamari and fried ravioli along with a couple entrees - vegetable risotto and short ribs on blue cheese grits. Sunil and Mark provided exceptional service. Table 45 is easily one of the best restaurants in Cleveland.
Hi ExperiencedFoodie, Thank you so much for your review of Table 45. We're so happy to hear that you had a great dining experience and enjoyed your selections and the service you received from our staff. We will be sure to thank Sunil and Mark for their service! Best, Table 45 Team

Our food was excellent (striped bass for me and dates and spicy tuna roll for husband). Service was great. We felt totally safe the entire time we were there. Building temp check, face masks and more than adequate spacing
Dear DeniseG, We're thrilled that you and your husband had a great dining experience complete with 5-star service from our staff. It was certainly a pleasure to have you and we look forward to your next visit. Warm regards, Table 45 Team
Strip Steak was poor quality and overcooked. The sushi was delicious. Server was good but the kitchen was very slow.
Dear Latenightsupper, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're delighted that you enjoyed the sushi and service you received from our staff but must apologize for the aspects of your visit that fell below your expectations. We hope that these events don't deter you from dining with us again. Best, Table 45 Team
It's very expensive for the style and quality of the food. The $40 paella had 2 shrimp and no artichokes. It was not what I would call a traditional version of paella and that should have been made clear in the description. The frisee salad was in actuality a type of chicory and bore no resemblance to frisee lettuce. The service was friendly and enthusiastic. Sitting outside on the patio was a good way to socially distance and be less concerned about contracting Covid-19. Dishes was brought from the kitchen with covers and the staff seemed to be very conscientious about wearing gloves and masks, and cleaning tables, chairs, etc. between diners.
Dear Linda, Thank you so much for your review of Table 45. While we're happy to hear that you appreciated the precautions we've put in place for the safety of our guests, we're disappointed that your selections fell below your expectations. Your feedback will be shared with our team so that we may enhance our offerings and hope you'll give us another opportunity to provide you a 5-star experience. Best, Table 45 Team
Excellent food!! Our waiter was very conscientious and really paid close attention to what we all needed!!! However, when we sat down the manager was reading the riot act to a young man and he, the manager, was using very nasty language. There were not very many people in the restaurant so I didn’t say anything, but I find this totally unprofessional. I was just happy that the manager never came to our table to see how our evening was.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We are disappointed to hear of the events you describe and will be sure to share your comments with our team so other guests aren't inconvenienced by this. We are, however, happy that you were satisfied with your meal and the attentiveness of your server. It was a pleasure to have you and we hope you'll dine with us again. Warm regards, Table 45 Team
The food was spectacular and the service and ambiance were as outstanding as well.

Formerly a Zack Burrell restaurant. Now run by the Hotel. The standard set by Zack is still upheld. I’m sure hotel guests are surprise at how good it its. Worth seeking out. Had a very pleasant experience on a Friday night.

It was a pleasure to have you as our guest and we look forward to welcoming you again. Best, Table 45 Team

Google directions sent me to the wrong side of the road. Would have been helpful to know this restaurant was inside of the Intercontinental Hotel. "Lunch Small Plates" and "Dinner Small Plates" were not listed as such on the local menus.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your feedback and suggestions to improve our guests' experience. It was nice to have you as our guest and we hope you'll visit us again. Regards, Table 45 Team
Excellent food and service for a meal before a theater performance. It is always a great experience!

We will be back !
Dear remington, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We're so happy to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience and plan to return. We certainly look forward to welcoming you back! Warm regards, Table 45 Team
I had the paella special. It really wasn’t great. However, the specialty smoked bourbon drink that I had was fabulous.
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for sharing your experience with us. While the paella fell below your expectations, we're happy to hear that you enjoyed your cocktail. We look forward to welcoming you back. War regards, Table 45 Team
Food & service was excellent. Our only negative was that the room temperature, for us, was too cool.
Dear GarySueE, Thank you so much for your review and recommendation! We're thrilled that you had a great dining experience and we look forward to welcoming you back. Best, Table 45 Team
It was my friend's birthday and they sent her home with desert! The manager even came over and wished her a happy birthday!
Dear SandyM, We're so happy to hear that you and your friend had a memorable birthday celebration! It was such a pleasure to have you dine with us and we look forward to your next visit. Warm regards, Table 45 Team
Went for their restaurant week, the menu did not match what was in the paper, and we were expecting the same menu. So disappointing to start and the fish offered was extremely disappointing. Very small portion, not much flavor and unfortunately the risotto it was served with was also bland. They are supposed to shine and bring out the best during restaurant week. Not even close!
Dear Berniel, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are disappointed to hear that our restaurant week offerings fell below your expectations and we wish you hadn't left with such a negative impression. We certainly hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back for the 5-star dining experience we're known for! Best, Table 45 Team
Food was awesome!

We went for Christmas dinner. It took over 30 minutes for someone to show up to take a cocktail order and then another 20 minutes for that to arrive. The menu was boring! The only fish on it was Samon!!!!. I’m sorry but that’s pitiful. There was also no seafood option. Since none of us eat red meat, we were also disappointed to find that There was no vegetarian option and no vegan option. The only thing they could offer us other than salmon was a sushi menu that was limited at best. To make matters worse the bread was soggy and basically inedible.We left after the cocktails and went to Ruth Chris where everything was delightful. Essentially they have a hostage List of guests because they’re the only restaurant attached to the Cleveland clinic and those with loved ones in the hospital have nowhere else to go.
Personally, I think that people should stop touting this place as an elegant restaurant and call it what it is, a mediocre hotel restaurant with horrible service.
My family and I went to Table45 for the first time on Christmas Day. Unfortunately, the experience was horrible. The ambiance was nice but the food lacked seasoning, the service was poor and it took FOREVER for our food to arrive. Oh, and I can’t forget that the heat did not work! My family and I were freezing which mad it hard for us to enjoy our meal. I gave this restaurant 2 stars because although our service was poor, the head chef was pleasant and came out to apologize for the bad experience. Other than that, I wouldn’t recommend this place to my worst enemy. It’s unfortunate that a prestigious hotel such as the Intercontinental is attached to such a poorly-performing restaurant like Table45.
My family and I went there for Christmas dinner and we were all very pleased with our choice. The seating was perfect, the service was excellent as was the food.
Excellent food service and decor. Mark was a great server.
The food was great. Jasmine’s service was SUPERIOR, she was fun, attentive and far exceeded our expectations. Overall it was a fun experience. Next time we will come a little earlier and hungrier so we will get more bang for the buck. I will return and will definitely recommend TABLE45
