Description: 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.

“Worth the ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We were staying in downtown Cleveland, and the reviews of Pier W convinced us to try it. It was about a 10 - 15 minute cab ride there - and the cab driver gave us his card, so we were assured of a simple ride back to the hotel. Pier W is in a very nice neighborhood, which I wish we'd been able to see in the daylight. Although we didn't have a window table, we were able to see the lake from where we sat. A view from the window is definitely a must - it's not only Cleveland's skyline, but the view of the cliff and lakeshore is impressive. From the warm bread and butters to our glass of port - Pier W was fabulous. We all agreed that it was worth the drive and enjoyed every moment.

“Fine Food with the best view of Cleveland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I have heard about this place for 20 years and have always wanted to go here. Its not what I expected, as when you pull in you are at an apartment complex. There is an elevator which takes you down to the restaurant. The view is spectacular. I know this isnt something one thinks about a view of Cleveland. The food is what one would expect from a fine restaurant. The lobster tail was as good as it gets unless you in on the coast. If you are looking for a fancy restaurant for a special occasion on the west side and money isnt a big issue this is your place.

“We would love to go back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

We are seafood aficianodos and found the divers scallops to be excellent and the cod (sometimes ordinary fare) to be so well prepared that is was delightful. Views of Cleveland were lovely, go early to get a great table.
