Disgusting! Ants all over first table so we moved. Probably about 50 flies buzzing around our heads and at $15 per cocktail, that’s a clear indication of how little they care about customers. So it took us over 30 minutes and our server was super...More

Fantastic Manhattan cocktails and imaginative coffee-inspired cocktail "Pruning Shears" made for an unforgettable experience. Our mixologist "Sully" was terrific and explained the menu (over 400 possible cocktails) and suggested customized cocktails just for us. She also explained the history of the place with some interesting...More

Simply one of the best bars I have ever been to. The bartender Niko was truly gifted. Once you've had his craft cocktails, you'll be dubious when other bars make the same claim. He was knowledgeable, engaging, and the cocktails were incredible. It is worth...More

I'll start off by saying that before my visit to the Spotted Owl last night, I have been there a few times but have never felt compelled to write a review, until now. First impression of The Spotted Owl was good; it feels trendy, hip,...More

Great place to go for unique and interesting drinks! We went here after dinner one night on the recommendation of a friend. This is a hidden gem--not well marked, just look for the owl sign. Felt like we were walking into the Hogwarts of Cleveland....More

Met up with a group of people for a birthday party at 9pm. Such a cool building tucked away in Tremont. The staff and specialty drinks were awesome. They did need more wait staff as the time between seeing a waiter was lengthy. Our party...More

I love that their drink menu is not run of the mill. If you want something a little different and people who know what they are mixing this is the place to go. I loved the atmosphere also. Relaxing and inviting. We were not there...More

Went to this establishment Friday night with friends around 7:30ish. Bar staff were all friendly and knowledgeable- decor is pretty cool. Go only for drinks; nor or limited food menu; food allowed to be brought in.
