Edwins service and food: Extraordinary

Edwins Restaurant in Shaker Square is a slice of Paris' Latin Quarter in our front yard! Dining al fresco yesterday evening with good friends on a warm May evening was the perfect end to a busy work week. We chose our corner table and perused the menu reading the French and English choices. Our... read more

I had only heard great things about Edwins, so when we finally had an opportunity to visit, we jumped at the chance and Edwins exceeded our expectations! The proprietor and incredible sommelier, Brandon Chrostowski, provides education and training in French cuisine and hospitality to those who need a second chance. I can only say the food was incredible and the... More

Edwin's is a restaurant training staff who would have difficulties to finding work elsewhere. The place has loads of charm, staff works great, and the food is excellent. try the escalottes and oysters! The venison and duck leg were fantastic. Convincing wine selection, and an absolutely fantastic cheese selection. A wonderful place to eat, for a great cause! Highly recommended.

I love the charm of Edwins in Cleveland's fashionable Shaker Square neighborhood. The food is consistently interesting, delicious and beautifully prepared. All dishes have the right amount of herbs and sauces. It was a perfect place to treat a friend, a francophile, who was celebrating a birthday. He appreciated every delicate morsel of food and drink! The ambiance is comfortable,... More

Leave out the fact that this restaurant is training individuals who would have a hard time finding work elsewhere... This was a great meal. My wife and I had salad and tomato soup (really good), the horseradish encrusted salmon and pasta with mushrooms. All excellent and well-presented. We each had drinks from the bar that were prepared well and were... More

EDWINS stands for Education Wins, but in reality we all win. The job training makes it possible for second chances. The food they prepare and service makes it possible for the rest of us to have a really great meal. It is a double win-win in my book.

EDWINS was a total surprise when I first went there, but now I've been back several times and I love this place. It combines a social mission (the name means "Education Wins.") with outstanding food in a beautiful space. It's a training ground for future chefs and hospitality professionals. You might think that would make for mediocre fare, but not... More

The ambiance here was wonderful. We sat in the main dining room, but there was a secluded area to sit with a drink by the fireplace, which looked very inviting. The food was good, but overpriced. While the presentation was beautiful, the food itself was not amazing. The service, however was excellent. Our waiter was extremely attentive and knowledgeable about... More

This restaurant had a comfortable atmosphere with quality and unique food. Everything was served beautifully, with extreme care. All things ordered exceed our expectations, as lately we have been disappointed by the other "supposedly" great Cleveland Restaurants. All servers were extremely attentive, yet there was no hurry to rush you out the door. Everything felt more French than American. Both... More

We started our evening with happy hour cocktails in front of the fireplace and then moved on to a beautifully prepared meal in the dining room. The food was excellent and the service quite attentive. What an excellent experience, to be able to enjoy fine French food and help others at the same time. Try the Creme Brûlée, it was... More
