I went on a Monday at 6:00 and was seated right away but sat at the table for 15 minutes before the server came over. She was knowledgeable about the menu and friendly but didn't bother to tell me about the specials. The pea soup tasted like something from a can. The escargot was excellent. The scallops were delicious but... More

My husband and I went for our anniversary. I was surprised we had to pay for parking to eat as there are many restaurants to choose from without having to pay to park. We were greeted at the door and had a drink in the bar as we were early. The service was delightful and the drink pleasant. At dinner,... More

My husband and I visited with another couple and had a great time. Let me get the best part out right away. The cheese cart is a must have! They bring out all the cheeses for you to see and explain every single one. Then you just pick and choose which ones you want as they tell you about them.... More

My husband and I were visiting Cleveland last weekend and wanted to eat at unusual restaurants. We turned to Trip Advisor for reviews and went to the number 1, 2, and 3 places. We were not disappointed!!! This charming spot was right next to our hotel, the Glidden House. We found the restaurant to be very creative and the service... More

We had lunch here before walking to the art museums-- its a lovely spot. Soup, salad, mussels and espressos were all delicious. It was clearly a favorite of parents and university students.

I love this place, we have been eating here since the beginning. Tonight was different. The food was just average. The hangar steak was over cooked and the fries were off. The rest of the food was good but not great, not the standard that Zach usually lives up to.

Ate outside in the patio on a beautiful October afternoon. We shared the L'Albotros Burger & Mussels & Pomme Frites. Our meals were perfect & service was just as good. You won't be disappointed.

This restaurant is highly rated by TA reviewers and it is very popular in University Circle. I dined there at least once/year dating back to the years that had a different ownership and was called That Place on Bellflower. The restaurant is structured as a french bistro-brasserie. The menu is quite vast and underwent little changes during the last ten... More

5 of us for dinner and each of us very much enjoyed our selections. Escargot were yummy. French onion soup was good. Salads were very nice. Two entrées were lobster quenelle and whitefish. Finished to the last bite. The hanger steak was nicely prepared. Dessert was a pistachio cake. Strange, hardly a crumb left on the plate. We very much... More
