Pier W, a landmark Cleveland restaurant, has been serving a critically acclaimed seafood and contemporary menu since May 11, 1965. Having recently undergone a $3 million interior renovation, the new Pier W resembles a sophisticated luxury liner cantilevered over Lake Erie offering dramatic views of both the Lake and the downtown Cleveland skyline. We would like to request that shorts, flip flops and baseball caps are not worn to the restaurant.

Pier W has long been our go to restaurant for celebrations. It came through for us again last night when we had dinner there with friends from Texas. This is one of the few restaurants in the Cleveland area where we feel that we are getting our money's worth. It is expensive, but the food, the ambience, the wait staff--wow!

We went to Pier W to celebrate our son's college graduation at a friend's recommendation. Everything about our evening was exceptional! The fun bar area and the "deck" upstairs overlooking the lake were both lovely. The wines were delicious, cava and Although our table wasn't at the window, we were still able to see an expansive view of downtown Cleveland,... More

We stopped in for Happy Hour on a Saturday afternoon. The drink menu was all mixed drinks for $6, and the food menu was all appetizers, all between $6-$7 and all of them delicious. We had mussels, angus sliders, salads, flat-bread pizzas, all delicious, a lot of food, very, very reasonably priced. The restaurant itself is amazing, looking like a... More

One of my FAVORITE restaurants. You cant beat the VIEW! And the restaurant decor is perfect! Upscale but friendly vibe. Love, Love, Love the Sunday brunch! It seems expensive, but it is well worth it!

This was a great location with a view of the lake and the city skyline. The food was outstanding. I had the soup and the scallops. They were both just right. The scallops were cooked to perfection. My associate had the grilled trout and said it was the best she has ever eaten. She also gave two thumbs up for... More

We celebrated two Birthdays at Pier W recently and marveled that it is one of the last of the great places left that still emphasize service and atmosphere in addition to great food. For many restaurants in the same price range, it is all about the chef and food. Not here. Loved that they use table clothes and real cloth... More

On the last full day of our trip visiting friends in the Cleveland area, we were treated to a beautiful brunch at Pier W. Wow! Overall, this dining experience was perfect! It is located facing the water with the city scape of Cleveland in your view. It was a sunny Sunday morning, and both the water and sky were so... More

After eating here, I regret waiting so long to try it. This was fantastic! The service, the location, the view, and the best part-the food...what a great place to eat. Everything was outstanding. This will definitely be on my list of places to come back to. With apps, drinks, dinner, and tip for 2 was $180.00...and well worth it.

This was a wonderful dining experience! The food, service, ambiance and views were fantastic and everything just kept adding to the experience. I tried the BRAISED ANGUS BEEF SHORT RIB PIEROGIES and they were wonderful! A heartier pierogi then your usual potato and cheese. For dinner I opted for the simply prepared fresh seafood. It was cooked perfectly and delicious.... More
