We dined at Pura Vida last evening. The meal was outstanding. First of all, they cater to those with dietary restrictions-even asking when they confirm your reservations. Many dietary items are listed on the menu and they are happy to check on ingredients in each meal. We dined on the African Peanut Stew that was outstanding! All the flavors melded... More

I'm vegan, husband is not. Many choices for both of us. We split the warm farro salad - fantastic, definitely recommended. He had the BLT and I had the curry. Big portions, we couldn't finish everything. Setting is very open and modern, location was easy walking distance from our hotel (Marriott).

I made reservations for my wife's 40th birthday. Bell was our server and made the experience tremendous! The food was very good and the Thailand cocktail was great! It was our 1st time, but not our last. And because the restaurant is so close to everything, we walked everywhere afterwards.

Some of the best service I have had at a restaurant. The food is well presented, innovative, fresh and tasted amazing. Great vegetarian menu and all the portions are large and enough to share. The cocktails are inventive and made using fresh ingredients... The Blood Orange Cocktail was amazing!!! The decor is modern, fresh & open and I really enjoy... More

Eh, this was ok, nothing to write home about. I had water, and no dessert, could not eat the side dish and paid $45.00. Also, I now have a nasty intestinal virus which could have come from somewhere else, but started up the morning after I ate there. I will not be back. I should mention, however, that the waitress...

We stopped by for a late dinner, and ordered vegetarian meals. Both were flavorful, fresh, and perfectly prepared. Good wine choices, nice atmosphere, and friendly wait staff. I look forward to a repeat visit.

Great food! Great service! Eclectic menu but not too many items to choose from. Something for everyone-- including carnivores, vegans, dietary restrictions like gluten free and low sodium. But being guilt-free does not assure great quality and taste BUT that's what get at Pura Vidal. Did I mention that we had a great meal?

Pura Vida was a treat. We went there with friends for an early meal (5:30) on a Wednesday, and then on to the theater. As expected, the place was almost empty, but that is when many restaurants fall down. Service was very attentive, but not cloying. The drinks were great, with some unusual cocktail combinations. I had the African stew... More

I'm from the NYC metro area so I guess I'm dubious that there are great meals to be had in small cities like Cleveland. Pura Vida was recommended to me by the hotel where I was staying, the Downtown Marriott at the Key Center. This American eclectic restaurant, with its farm to table philosophy, provides surprising and unique dishes. It... More
