Ballantines was great when it first opened but the menu has changed for the worse yet gotten pricier and they have a serious image problem. They don't know I they want to be a trendy restaurant or a club. For some reason at night they cater to 21 year olds drinking which makes not lousy for people who may want... More

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

Made reservations over the phone to an answering machine earlier in the day before they were open. They promptly returned my call and confirmed. Upon arrival, our friends were already seated. 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
