Long time Cleveland establishment located in the very fun Ohio City neighborhood. Our first time visit was a great experience. The Bacon Wrapped Medjool Dates were very good, although it was a bit pricey for what you get. The Burrata was also very nice and tasty. The pork was very well prepared and full of flavor and the right amount... More

Stopped here because a friend of a friend knows someone. The prices are a little high but the food was delicious and the service was great. Would recommend to anyone who wants an upscale meal.

Nice place with a lively atmosphere. The burger, lettuce wraps and tempura green beans were excellent. The chicken meatballs with horseradish mashed potatoes were very bland but filling.

Reserved with Open Table. Went with 2 girlfriends. They were able to accommodate our outside seating request since it was a beautiful day. The host and our server were extremely nice and helpful with suggestions on selections. Ended up getting the beet salad and it was absolutely delectable! the flavors were simply astonishing. My friend got the Hoisin Glazed Cleveland... More

Ohio City has a number of terrific restaurants, and we had a very nice meal. It is located "in the shadow" of The West Side market. I went with family and we all ordered different meals -- salads, sandwiches and hot meals, and each of us was pleased. Even the standard offerings were unique and prepared perfectly. My only comment... More

I picked this place as it seemed to have plenty of vegetarian options. You can imagine my surprise when my vegetarian dish showed up with sausage in it. Food was taken back to the kitchen and the proper food was brought out but by that time the rest of my party had finished eating and I was just starting. Dont... More

Made a Sunday brunch reservation for a meal with my in-laws. We were late being seated at a table for four. There was nowhere to stand during our wait. The floor was dirty. The server was disinterested. They had no decaf brewed so there was a wait for beverages for two of us. I wanted sweeter for iced tea and... More

There are better restaurants in Cleveland. If you just want to meet up with some friends for dinner it's fine...but it is not fine dining.

Went there March 29 specialty drinks for $12.00 should have some alcohol. Waiter kept asking our party to order,as he wanted the menus, Parties of 4 or more do it have to worry about tipping they add it to your check. Better place across the street.

The Flying Fig was an unreal find! I was looking forward to a high quality meal but was blown away by the portions and quality of the meal. Oh, and they had arguably the best early morning cocktail list I've ever encountered. This place had great, attentive service. The atmosphere is fun and relaxed. The sound track the day I... More
