I popped in here with a customer after dinner and it was great. The decor is a little dated but it has a quaint feel. Rob was our bartender and he was very knowledgeable about the wine. He was very personable and not at all a snob about the fact we ordered one of the cheaper bottles of wine. It... More

Went on a Saturday night and it was quite busy. Service was good and friendly. Overall the food was quite good, but nothing was spectacular. The bread plate appetizer was good but we sure could have used more bread, its pretty skimpy. The gnocci was excellent and the fish special was quite good, although the black bean side was a... More

Stopped in on a Sunday evening. It was an OK meal but nothing to write home about. I'll say the same for the service. Friendly but lackluster. Server didn't give us or offer bread but I think we were supposed to get some. Also didn't offer cracked pepper for salad or soup. Maybe that's normal here but it seems there... More

My husband and I had dinner there last Saturday with another couple. They have a lovely menu and good specials. The menu changes based on the season. Lovely decor. I had the Walleye which was a bit too salty. The restaurant is pricey but it's a nice evening out! Ask for Eric, he was awesome!

I had only one opportunity to take lunch out during my recent trip to Cleveland. Flying Fig was highly recommended on several sites as the best farm-to-table small restaurant in the area. The service was initially and then ultimately friendly. The food was delicious -- I had the beef brisket bbq hash and the apple crisp -- would highly recommend... More

Met my sister and another friend, and had a really nice draft beer. For happy hour there is a special menu, and as I had eaten lunch late, I had the vegetable empanadas -- WOW! There were three, about the size of a smallish perogie, and they were hot, crisp and delightful. Nice presentation, too. Decor is much more sophisticated/upscale... More

Best agitation potatoes in the world. The melted in my mouth. The steak was good, the potatoes were the best thing I have ever had touch my taste buds! And Amy was the most articulate, knowledgeable and we'll spoken culinary attendant I have experienced.

Stopped in with 5 minutes left to order off the brunch menu. Our party ordered the migas, the eggplant sandwich, fried chicken, and the egg salad sandwich paired with a round of Bloody Marys. Everything was delish from the service to the quality of the food to the ambiance.

The brunch we had was very good. I typically do not order burgers but the one listed on the brunch menu sounded unique -- it was. It was moist and the meat was soft rather than packed down ground meat. My husband had the fried chicken plater and loved every bite. For me the portion was large but I happily... More

A local recommended this place but I wouldn't eat there again. It was a quaint little place with lots of people and across the street from West Side Market and it also had a small store for unique purchases. I thought it was overpriced for the food. First the Bloody Mary was terrible, the server said oh they're really good... More
