                                            The lettuce wrap and spinach dip were delicious and the service was great, but the salmon tacos were subpar. The tortillas were extremely soggy I couldn't even pick up the taco without it falling apart. Overall the apps were great but my entree was a struggle.

                                            First time here and I really liked it. They delivered on the whole almost everything is made in house concept. Especially enjoyed my Fashionably Late cocktail with the rhubarb bitters.

                                            Went on Friday for lunch. They had no meat for hamburgers and no weiners as they ran out from the night before. We had the pulled pork sandwiches. Barely any pork on the sandwiches. The fries were good. We were the only people there for lunch. Likely not to go back.

                                            Third time trying this place. Ordered meatball appetizer. Arrived cold. Told the server and he asked if we wanted them heated up. Of course, we'd expect hot food. Ordered Carbonara. Too salty to eat. Other person with us ordered fish / shrimp tacos. Not good. No flavor. No spices. Disappointment. Ordered salted pickled vegetables for appetizer as well. Not really sure what that was about. Didn't make sense. Won't go back. Three strikes...

                                            Food and service were outstanding, the chicken meatballs were amazing. The only criticism we had was the marinara sauce might've been slightly high on the salty side but still very tasty

                                            Service was great. The poutine was our favorite and that's coming from a Canadian! The truffled tots were also amazing!

                                            I thought that the food was okay, nothing to different. Also it was not good. I got the burger and it tasted like a wet soggy burger. No flavor, not texture, and it tasted like chewed up meat loaf. Not impressed. I had a great glass of White Chardoney. Won't be going back. Menu was limited.

                                            Our server was EXCELLENT. The food was very good, servings decent sized. The noise level , however, was extremely high and, also, we were seated right next to the kitchen window and it got extremely hot... Almost had to step out into the summer night to cool off.

                                            This is a nice place for a sandwich or salad. Very limited menu. Everything was prepared fresh. Four of us visited for the first time...to celebrate one of the party's birthday. Three of us had the smoked chicken/bacon with avocado mayo and nicely toasted tasty bread. One of us had the mushroom burger and all of us said our sandwiches were very good...served with your choice of side...we all chose chargrilled asparagus. The menu choices were definitely different than any other restaurant I've been to but, again, the choices were quite limited.

                                            First time trying with friends from out of town, wanted to go somewhere new on east bank flats. Lots of positive reviews so we were excited to try. It was a Saturday evening and with our reservation we were able to sit down promptly. Service was average, long waits between table visits, some due to us not knowing what we wanted, was fine as we were a group of friends catching up. We ordered the calamari appetizer and it seemed like there was more cauliflower and other veggies than calamari, sauce was very tasty just small serving. Cocktails we ordered were different the server was unable to describe some of the ingredients in the drinks which left us with sending 2 drinks back opting for beer and wine. Entrees were fine I would say overpriced. The manager brought a sample platter for desert which was nice and apologized about the delay we experienced. Overall- good location, good ambiance, better places to eat for the money, and service could be improved may have been an off night.

                                            Our third visit and it never disappoints. It was a more relaxed, quieter environment than some over the other restaurants in the area if that is appealing.

                                            Food was great! Enjoyed eating on the patio. We got a variety. Hamburger, shrimp and avocado burritos, pulled pork sliders and a Cesar salad. We also got a few different drinks, Moscow mule, dark and stormy, and a few beers. Waitress ad hostess were friendly. We will return !

                                            The server gave misinformation about a special, stating peppers rather than tomatoes. Not a big deal to most, but really disappointing for my husband, who hates tomatoes .

                                            The food was good. I would have liked to get something more with my lunch though. I got the salmon burger and it looked lonely sitting on my large plate by itself. Even just adding some chips or the ever present pickle on the side instead of on top would have made it look like I was getting more. Or use a smaller plate!

                                            It seemed like the chef went out of his way to combine the weirdest ingredients, some of which were not edible. Also, found several dishes oversalted.

                                            We started with great impressions of the whiskey, bourbon, wine, and beer offerings and the knowledgeable and friendly staff. Appetizers of chicken meatballs and humus concoction with peta were exceptionally tasty. Our party of three shared each other's flank steak, chicken, and meatloaf entrees and could not decide which was best, they were all that good. Just super food and service. Proud that it is a Cleveland Independent too.

                                            what a treat this was, first time there and it was well worth it. parking was right next door and food was excellent. just the right size place and very modern ambiance.

                                            we will return for the food and casual ambiance. you can wear jeans or whatever you please. nice and friendly feeling. the night we were there, a thursday in the rain, the restaurant only had one other table, so we can't rate the noise level.

                                            Food was good. Abit disappointed in the hamburger. It appeared to be a frozen patty and as not juicy.

                                            Average everything. Nothing that would draw me back plus the cost of parking.

                                            One of my favorite restaurants in Cleveland. Great food, cocktails and service and I've never had a bad meal here. It's often overlooked and you can always get a table here but don't pass it by!! I'm a big foodie and have eaten at most, if not all the top rated restaurants in Cleveland and I think this is one of the best!

                                            Great poutine prelude for an appetizer to split! Service was friendly, but the only weird thing was that she took out entree orders when the appetizer came out. We were happy that it ended up being an extended dinner but if you don't like that it could be a bad thing for you. Personally I'll be going again!

                                            Our dinner the other night was good but was overpriced for what we ordered but their lunch menu is much more reasonable.

                                            We have been here a few previous times and had better experiences. Table was fine but food was very slow coming out of kitchen. Hanger steak was ok, mine was undercooked . Medium is not red . Waitress apologetic but no explanation for longer wait.

                                            vibrant place that I have gone to a few times. Very friendly and a great service. Only one negative I have to say is that they have items on the menu that were not available at 8pm.
