Great for Brunch

They offer an amazing brunch. I would recommend calling a head for a reservation as they fill up quick. However they have very extremely poor service. They do not come check up on you while waiting for your food.

My daughter and I traveled about an hour to Cleveland to try another restaurant. We got there early afternoon and needed to have lunch. We happened upon this little gem in Ohio City and were pleasantly surprised! We had to sit at the bar because they were packed even though the weather was terrible. Or server was attentive and knowledgeable... More

I travel A LOT and love finding new and interesting places to eat, and it's just blowing my mind that in the past few months, I've been to major American and European cities, and still one of my most memorable meals was in Cleveland! What a great foodie town... My husband and I had brunch here, and neither of us... More

My husband and I frequently visit Cleveland and tried the Flying Fig on our last trip into town. We loved it - the food is fresh, local, and delicious. Not knocking any of the other area restaurants, but if you want something a bit more adventurous and not just pub fare or burgers, check out the Flying Fig. We've only... More

Went on an unusually warm day in November in Cleveland after a trip to the zoo. Interesting menu, good wine list. Attentive and helpful staff. Food was quite good, especially the bacon wrapped dates appetizer and tempura fried green beans. Thoroughly enjoyable, would highly recommend.

The food is excellent in preparation and flavor. The prices have climbed since I remember and while I thought my Faroe Island salmon was a decent value for $22, I didn't think my friends hamburger was worth the $22 he paid.... The service was a bit stiff, efficient but not friendly. It is a lovely restaurant, but the nearly dead... More

Went here while waiting for a table from Great Lakes Brewery. Was pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. Very rustic and hip. Extensive wine and beer list. Apps are also available. Good place to go to chill with friends and drink wine or beer. Highly recommended if you're in the area.

We were fortunate enough to be seated immediately, but the experience went downhill from there. While I usually enjoy a lively restaurant atmosphere, this was too loud for anyone to enjoy. Our server couldn't hear us over the noise and instead of moving around to each person to hear the orders, she insisted on leaning over the table, her long... More
