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

We ate here over Labor Day weekend, and when I called to make a reservation, I was told that they only had the ability to seat a table of four at 5 or 9p.m. I chose the 5 o'clock time, but noticed while there, that the restaurant still had many open four-top tables by the time we left at 7....

Cleveland in general and this restaurant in particular was a wonderful experience during the Gay Games. Love the preservation of this interesting old building (and so many others in "Ohio City"), the tables outside and the warm low-humidity weather that we experienced. The very small menu was welcomed for its use of fresh local stuffs and original takes on new... More

I was in Cleveland visiting family and we decided on Flying Fig for lunch. The restaurant was very nice and there was no wait (party of 6). The food was great...literally the best BLT I have ever had and the bread basket was delicious. The only downside was the food took quite awhile to come out and when it did,... More

I had brunch here on the first Saturday in August. I ordered an absolutely delicious sticky bun. It was flaky and buttery and gooey all at the same time. I also ordered polenta with ragout and a crispy egg. This was also very tasty. I would definitely eat here again. Service was slow.
