My husband and I were seated promptly on a Friday night. Service was pleasant and fast. My husband enjoyed his ribeye steak, very flavorful. I had the scallop appetizer and a house salad, both very good. We will go back again soon!

This is one of my favorite places in the Cleveland area. What I love the most about it is that I can depend on its consistency. After visiting dozens of times, I KNOW that I can expect excellent food (no matter what I order), a great selection of beer and wine, and great service & atmosphere. The prices are right... More

My husband and I met friends for our first visit to Ballantine. They had previously been there and raved about the food. I had the chicken tagliatelle for $18. It was one piece (a half) of chicken breast, 4 broccoli florets, a smattering of sundried tomatoes, and lots of noodles. Salads were extra. My husband had one of their signature... More

Service was quick as we ordered drinks and heard the specials. Scallops appetizer was excellent. Cooked perfectly and quality of scallop was superb. Ordered the Ribeye steak dinner. Salad... More

The food was good, the restaurant was busy, yet not too loud. It was a Tuesday night and they offered a great and from my experience, RARE deal of 1/2 off the price of a bottle of wine. This was great opportunity to enjoy a decent bottle of wine with your dinner. It was a great dining experience and I... More

They had a Mother's Day special so we decided to try it out. We both ordered fillets that were outstanding, cooked just as we ordered. The salad that came with it was very large. We ordered the family size asparagus and we have enough steak and vegetable for dinner tonight. We really didn't need a potato. They are a bit... More

We tried Ballantine's for the first time today and felt a bit disappointed. The server was helpful and attentive but the food took a very long time to arrive, even though the restaurant did not seem very busy. My friend's steak was a nice cut and was cooked the way he requested but his first bite brought the comment "Wow.... More

The small plates menu was diverse and delicious. We had a corner booth for six and spent 4 hours enjoying fine food and drinks with excellent service.
