“A perfect seafood lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 June 2012

I have been to Salmon Dave's many times for dinner, as it is my brother's favorite seafood restaurant in Cleveland when he is here from San Francisco. (That alone should tell you how good it is.)

Yesterday we tried it for lunch, and we were wowed. I had the most perfect salmon salad in my recollection: mixed greens, an entree-sized grilled salmon, with bacon, gorgonzola, artichoke heart, hearts of palm, and lemon-champagne vinaigrette. To die for. My husband got the "pick 3" express lunch, with an iceberg wedge, crab gumbo, and a crab cake slider. Just the right amount of food, and all delicious. We shared a split of Piper-Heideseck champagne for the perfect lunch.

Salmon Dave's is nice -- a "white tablecloth" restaurant where you can dress casual and get great service and great food. Definitely try it for lunch sometime. We will be back.

“Elegant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2012

We came here with family. I had the Halibut. It was very good - nice, tasted fresh. They have a decent wine selection. Service was excellent. Attentive but understated.

When it's crowded, it can be noisey.

“Very Good Seafood Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

We have dined (lunch and dinner) at Salmon Dave's on multiple occasions. The food has always been very good - we have never had a 'bad' meal. Their seasonal specials, e.g. TASTE OF N’AWLINS FEAST, are especially enjoyable.
The service has always been friendly and efficient.
Pricing is comparable to other area, upscale seafood restaurants. Luncheon pricing is more attractive than their dinner pricing. We feel it is the best seafood restaurant on Cleveland's Westside. [It's sister restaurant's, i.e. Cabin Club in Westlake, seafood offering are also very good but limited in scope.]
The atmosphere is upscale tavern.
