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.

Our Go-To Special Occasion Restaurant in the Cleveland Area

The view is stunning. The space is sophisticated. And the food is just plain fabulous! We have dined there multiple times over several years in large-ish groups of 5 to 8, and it is always dependably great.

Went there to celebrate with my family visiting from Australia. Even though we did not have a reservation, we were seated almost immediately. The food was fabulous as always.

After living in Cleveland for 17 years and frequenting many of it's great restaurants, we decided to try Pier W. So many people have told me how great it is so for our anniversary we thought we'd give it a try. The views of the lake are probably the best in or outside of Cleveland. We felt like we were...

Great location, great service and food was amazing! I definitely recommend this restaurant. Would love to have enjoyed a glass of wine after dinner on the patio to enjoy the sunset and views of the city. This is not a chain, so it is truly a unique experience that you must try.

Went to Pier W for my mom's birthday. Staff was amazing, our menus said "happy birthday" on them and our dessert came with a "happy birthday" piece of white chocolate. We started with the braised short rib pierogies, I had the Lobster Papardelle and my mom had Crab stuffed shrimp....both delicious! The peanut butter bomb dessert was amazing too! Would... More

I dined at Pier W with a dinner party of 18 co-workers and after the meal, everyone in the group walked away elated, raving about the food. Plus, they even accommodated our request for separate checks! Next time in Cleveland, I would definitely want to go again.

I was in town for a high school reunion along with several others from out of town and some locals. We wanted a nice place to meet prior to our event and catch up, have some appetizers and drinks. Pier W seemed a perfect spot because it has a nice bar, a great view for those of us out-of-towners who... More

Years ago Pier W was a first class restaurant. It's even better now. The menu has always been a bit different...on the plus side. Improving the offering has been a constant. Swordfish? Szechuan it. Several variations of shrimp. Four meals....eight thumbs up! In a lot of restaurants there can be so many choices you have trouble deciding. Here it's not... More
