Food and service were excellent. However, it was at least 80 degrees in the restaurant. We sat there sweating and using the menus as fans. If we weren’t such a large party, with a later reservation, we might have left. Although the food was worth staying for.

Clearly surpassed our expectations! The wings were out of this world! So tender and sweet. Ramen noodles never tasted this good (in college or ever!) Beer selection was outstanding. Would come back again soon!

It. Was. Fabulous. The opportunity to choose from a number of small plates was just what we were looking for in celebrating Father's Day. David, our server, was quite helpful in describing the dishes and helping us make our choices. We opted for: crispy pigs ear (photo), chicken wings, Brussels sprouts, and for dessert the steak tartare (photo). We WILL be back.

Father’s Day brunch. The waiter was very nice. The brunch selection was very limited. The French toast was dry. Their AC was not working on a 90 degree day. It was very hot. We asked if the corn dogs were a good choice for the kids, and the waiter said they would be good, they came out with hot sauce on them. The kids wouldn’t eat them so they did remake them without the hot sauce. The pancakes were not cooked enough. I think their dinners are unbelievable, but their brunch menu needs some help.

Food was average at best, way too many onions on the lamb burger. The pig ears were very good.

This was our second visit in a week visiting Cleveland. Both males were exceptional, I had the pork chop the first visit and the clams on the second and the flavors were incredible

Great meal with unique food options. We sat upstairs and it was quite warm. The fans were on and helped with airflow but it was warm. Our server was attentive and helpful. It wasn’t loud but we were the only ones seated at the time. A large party came in as we were finishing up and so the noise level increased. Go early if you want a quiet meal.

Everything was just ok. I don't recommend the lamb burger. Ours came out cold and there was no presentation. A piece of ground lamb on a bun, with a little bit of cheese. The Brussel sprouts were quite amazing though! I'm glad I went to check it out, but don't feel the desire to go back.

WE ARRIVED AT 7 Monday night
We ordered drinks, the waitress asked if wanted to order.
We said no we weren’t in a hurry. She came back 2x the third time we ordered a second drink and appetizers.
We got our drinks and ordered entrees. Before we had tased our drinks the appetizers arrived. They were nice but not great and the French fries were cold. The entrees arrived while we were eating the appetizers. We asked for the bill, paid and left.
I looked at my phone IT WAS 7:36
Rushed doesn’t even to begin to describe how we were treated. The food wasn’t that amazing but we certainly didn’t have time to savor it.
We won’t be back.

We brought our kids and the waiter gave us a few options that would be good for kids. It was much appreciated! Good was great. The upstairs seating area was not. There was a fan to help but I wonder if the air conditioner was down. Otherwise it was a great experience!

Terrible service. Small portions at expensive prices (the appetizers are shockingly small). Wine choice not available, multiple dishes out of stock at 9:00 PM on a weeknight (including bread!), rude and uncourteous staff basically rushing us out of the restaurant... we will not be recommending this Cleveland restaurant.
Teach some manners to your staff. There are much better establishments in Cleveland.

I've been here before for dinner, but this was a business lunch at noon. It wasn't as crowded/noisy as the weekend so my business party of 8 was able to communicate across the table. I HIGHLY recommend the pig ears appetizer. I was expecting a pork rind type chip but it was way better. I got the strip steak and it was just ok - otherwise I would have give this meal a 5.

Outstanding. One of best dinning experiences we have had in some time. Brought my team in from all of the country for leadership offsite. We have been to the nicest restaurants throughout the U. S. This is by far one of the best. Chef and owner John Sawyer and team ensure the experience and food is a 10 out of 10.

Our server Alice was wonderful! We tried much more than we intended because of her suggestions and are so happy we did. We were in a party of 4 and tried two appetizers, the no name fries and the Brussels sprouts, and then all ordered different entrees to share. We finished it off with four desserts that did not disappoint (the popcorn custard dessert was to die for). This is definitely a restaurant to try new dishes at!

We got there at 5 on a Sat night. There were 6 of us - 3 of us ordered short ribs and we were informed they had already run out as that is a popular item on the menu - at 5??? Dessert was amazing. The bread plate was great but a bit too exotic for most at the table.

We hadn’t eaten all day plus we’re major foodies. So we ordered and shared eight different items. Everything was perfect. Truly. Textures, flavors, seasoning and salt levels were all spot on. We live two hours away but will, without a doubt, be coming back soon.
