Go here for an elegant, relaxed meal in a classy setting, particularly if you're looking for an alternative to Italian in Little Italy. The patio/terrace is wonderful. The menu is a bit pricey for the area, and our service, while friendly and efficient, could have been a bit more attentive (perhaps understaffed on a Monday). These are minor gripes, and... More

We came to Little Italy looking for Italian food, but the rain and beastly parking made us decide that Washington Place with its valet parking was the best option, but we left wishing we'd tried harder for an Italian restaurant. Pretty place, and if a dish was good it was very good - shrimp and grits for example - was... More

My wife had the sea bass, I had the scallops, we shared some mac & cheese and everything was perfect. Our server was very friendly and quick with the refills. The food came out hot like it should and we have zero complaints.

I dined here twice the last time I was in Cleveland. The first time I had Momo as our server, and I would've given the place 5 stars on everything. She took my food sensitivities very seriously and took care of me and my aunt very well. The food that night was amazing! We returned on Father's Day with my... More

Go here for any meal of the day! Just had brunch there today and loved it. The bar creates awesome drinks and the food is consistently delectable. The menu changes sometimes as well so the variety is great.

Hadn't eaten here in several years but it is still quite good. A number of our party had the pasta with shrimp, very large tasty dish. I enjoyed the chicken with rice and brussel sprouts. Nice service and they have valet parking, very important in Little Italy!

This most recent visit was for a Friday night happy hour. We shared the usual 6 dollar burger and fries because the value can't be beat. The real winner, however, was one of their "chalkboard specials", a roast pork cheek on a ramp risotto which finished on a gentle spicy note. We also shared the biscuit sliders. Though the biscuits... More

We had heard about this bistro from a friend, and decided to give it a try. Considering that we do not live in Cleveland, we had planned to include it as part of an overnight while traveling. After checking in, we perused the menu while relaxing over cocktails in the bar. The bartender was helpful and chatty, very friendly. She... More

Located in the former Baracelli Inn, Washington Square Bistro serves up a varied menu of New American food at moderate/high prices. The setting is pleasant, whether you are seated inside in one of the adjoining rooms, or on the lovely patio. Having eaten here several times, my only complaint is that there are rarely specials and the menu does not... More

This place is true fine dining. The interior is beautiful. It is a perfect combination of a fine old historic home with sleek modern sophistication. It appeals to all generations. There are plenty of smaller dining rooms that give it an intimate feel and each space has something special like a fireplace or the inclosed terrace. The food is chef... More
