We're from California and met an old friend for lunch here and loved it. We stayed for hours and no one rushed us along. All the tables face the water with a beautiful view of Lake Erie and the city skyline on the right. Floor to ceiling windows created a stunning setting and the tables are step up in the... More

This is the spot for couples to go and enjoy the finest italian cuisine in North East Ohio, The view of Lake Erie and of the whole area makes for a great backdrop to a wonderful meal.

Outstanding view of Lake Erie and the Cleveland Skyline. Very elegant dining room. Although on the expensive side well worth the price. Generous portions of creative seafood dishes. The entire staff was friendly and efficient. Although on business, next time I am in Cleveland or nearby with my wife we will definitely be stopping by.

Six of us decided to try the Happy Hour at Pier W which is 4:00 - 7:00. We arrived at 6:00 and no tables available. There was plenty of tables because they do not allow Happy Hour on the deck. Seems like a waste of space if they cannot fill the outside deck with a gorgeous view on a gorgeous... More

Beautiful views, plenty of parking, fairly good service. good food. Open for lunch. I would go back but there are so many better restaurants with superior food that it might be a while. I would go if you have never been there. Pleny of old ladies having lunch like they have been for 30 years. (not that I have anything... More

Local friends suggested we meet in this restaurant and it was fabulous. The view was fantastic--even distracting for our visit it was so beautiful. The food was very good--seafood oriented menu, fresh and well-prepared with good service.

We made the mistake of not calling ahead of time and got the bar area. Still beautiful and full menu there too. Next time we will call ahead and sit next to the window! :) the cedar plank salmon was mouth watering and happy hour made the drinks well priced! Loved the views

Without a doubt, Pier W has the best brunch in Cleveland that one should not miss. A dazzling buffet array of fine seafood dishes are complemented by traditional breakfast dishes, pastas, meats, and more. Each dish is executed with the perfection that Pier W has been known to exemplify, as this buffet is anything like its traditional brunch buffet counterparts.... More

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.
