We came from Columbus to hear the "Long Road" concert and had dinner before the show. I had the trout almondine which was good but before it had an amazing chilled asparagus salad with lemon and thin slices of radishes and, I think, parmesan cheese. (Not the shaker kind, but very thin slices) Then, for dessert I had the flour... More

We could decide where to sit but finally ended up outside in the interesting courtyard (or whatever you might call it). Everyone enjoyed their dinners. There is not a huge menu but enough choices. There is a subtle Irish and fish theme going on here.

We were pleasantly surprised at the meal in this busy restaurant! We were unable to get a seat on a previous Saturday night visit, so we booked earlier in the day this time! Each of our choices met our expectations: 8oz prime rib with baked potato and broccoli, lobster sandwich with sweet potato fries and salmon with potato gnocchi, were... More

This was a surprise. Been around for near 50 years in the same place and now one of the foremost jazz clubs in the country. Food was exceptional and the service, we had a group of 150 and the servers were on top of it. They all managed to weave their way around the tight tables and get everything served... More

The patio was nice, the hostess was willing, the waitress was impassive, the food was OK, the beer was OK, the prices were a bit steep, the clientele were as old as the menu, the only thing keeping pace were the prices. The owner is a nice chap, marketing his blarney on a Midwest market starving for recognition. Not a... More

Nighttown is a trendy Cleveland Heights restaurant that boasts of great dining and great music—well, they have a right to boast! Food IS great—don’t get me wrong—but the 5 stars I give this place is for their live music, which is electrifyingly AMAZING! Topnotch performers within touching distance—who could ask for anything more? Through the years, I have been captivated... More

I've always wanted an intimate wedding reception, with a laid-back atmosphere yet elegant and charming. It just came all together with Nighttown's new garden patio. It's was totally unexpected! It made it even easier for us since we planned a Black and White event, and this patio was comfortably airy and charmingly minimalistic. If you define elegance as not being... More

Nighttown is close to our business location and we often take clients there for lunch and dinner. I have never been disappointed with serves or food. It is a great place to sit on the patio on warm evenings. The Dublin Lawyer lobster in cream sauce is one of their signature dishes and fantastic!

Sadly, Nightown is now a bit of a haul from Sanibel Island FL. However as a Cleveland Heights home boy it has always been a favorite for a special meal. Whenever we get back we always make an effort to have a meal at Nightown. PS: Service is always top notch

I have reluctantly eaten here over the years. I think the food is mediocre and the restaurant does not appear to be clean. They have some great jazz and shows that are a big draw. But last night was the final meal for me when as I left the back room I encountered a mouse in front of me!
