Perfect dinner with friends!

Great atmosphere right near the square. They have outdoor seating. Very nice selection with interesting entrees like chicken waffle sliders which another person in our party ordered and said they were delicious. Various yummy desserts.

My husband is a carnivore and I'm gluten free and vegetarian. We both loved this restaurant. Started with the African Peanut Soup. We were both skeptical so we shared a cup. It was amazing. We both loved it and almost wished we had each had a bowl. Then I had the gf vegan tostadas. They were so good. Hubby had... More

Had dinner with a large group here. Service was very good; groups are always a challenge and the servers were top notch. Menu is well-edited although the entree descriptions left a bit to be desired. Food was fine - OK - didn't disappoint - average. Modest wine list but well-chosen bottles and by-the-glass options. This is a noisy place. Cool... More

This is a great lunch spot, just off Public Square. Service is good. The BLT is to die for. Tuna melt is excellent. Don 't forget the rosemary fries.

A friend had recommended this restaurant as a great place to dine in Cleveland, so we made a reservation. Based on my friend, this was very casual. They had a nice selection of wine and beer and I had a FANTASTIC cocktail - the lemonade - with citrus vodka and thyme - so refreshing and delicious. We also had the... More

We were only in Cleveland for three nights so we wanted to try some really good places and thanks to tripadvisor we found them! This place was a nice walk from our hotel (Hilton Doubletree) too. It has a unique atmosphere, one side being concrete floors-more casual, the other side carpeted with more intimate seating. Check out ceiling, artistically decorated... More

This place is presented as fine dining, but it has a concrete floor and it kind of Spartan. The food is very good (rather ecletic), but not in the 5* category. Excellent wine selection, waiter needed some training for my guest. Waiter brought a meal that was not approved, but not returned. Waiter continued to act as if all were... More

My wife and I came here on Friday for dinner after the conference in downtown. I made reservation with my usual request: "Off kitchen, with the view". Surprisingly the host actually read my comments and recommended nice table for two. The food was great and the presentation was on par. Looks like many people around us liked the house bread...

Had dinner here the evening of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction. Excellent scallop special... wonderful shrimp bisque. Nice choice for casual meal with creative menu. Lots for those who eat vegetarian. Dropped a star for the manager's indifferent attitude to our inquiries about seating options. No excuse for not treating all customers with respect.

Stayed over recently in Cleveland and read many reviews prior to my trip. Pura Vida had solid reviews and I wasn't sold on Lola which is around the corner. Well, Pura Vida was an excellent choice and likely a bit cheaper. As other reviewers have stated, appetizers, entrées, dessert, and wine were all very good. My visit was on Good... More
