The food here is very good but it is expensive ($19 for burger & huge pile of fries). Specials are approx $26 and up and the portions are not large. I wish this place would invest in better & more comfortable chairs - the last 2 visits, I had to change chairs because the legs were wobbly. And, none of... More

Heard a lot about this spot, anxious to try, disappointed. An early lunch on a Saturday, place was packed, a good sign – right? Food was mediocre nothing special, I think this is more of a breakfast spot? Sat in the back of the dining room, this place is in need of a good cleaning, paint, baseboards dirty, carpet dirty,...

Two of my girlfriends and I went last night and had a great experience! The atmosphere was hip and cool. We sat at a tiny booth made just for 3, it was cute. We started off with some fantastic cocktails; la vie en rose, the safflower, and the ginger margarita. All were delicious and all came highly recommended by our... More

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...

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
