Unusual fine dining offerings in a totally unexpected place. Service was great and so was the food. The elk was especially good.

Usually enjoy the food, but our recent visit was just average. The steak and the chicken were both bland and the vegetables were overcooked to my liking. Paid a lot for just an average meal.

They have a level of service that is rare in restaurants these days. The waiter will greet the table by name (based on the name given on the reservation) and they always ensure that everyone's meal is brought at the exact same time. The food is great, and the wild game options are unique. The place is pricey but certainly... More

It is a great place to go for happy hour to meet friends at the end of the day. They do have a bar menu which is nice if you don't want to sit down for dinner. The dinner menu is super expensive and the last two times we went for dinner they were out of most everything we tried... More

Whether you just want to have drinks with friends or sit down for dinner, you can't go wrong with The Bald Headed Bistro. You feel like you're stepping into a lodge at a nice resort in the Rockies.

We have been to this restaurant over 20 times and most of the time we enjoy it. This visit was for take out and again the food is usually on point. We ordered a burger dinner and a steak salad. The burger tasted like it was made a week ago but the worst problem was the steak salad is supposed... More

The food is very good and the dining atmosphere is the best in Cleveland. Nice selection of wines and a fun place to have a drink with live music outside on Wednesday nights.

The feeling is that you are in the mountains of Colorado or a western location. Restaurant is elegant. Steaks were very tasty, especially the buttery tasting "prime" cuts. Usual items like Elk and Bison on the seasonable menus. Great service.

Everything on the menu here is fantastic Great drinks , great appetizers, fantastic steaks occasionally ostrich or bison. Atmosphere is like being in Colorado I'm in my 60's and lived in several big cities and this is the best restaurant I've ever been to. Good wine list, not cheap bur not a rip off. Service was outstanding

Thank Jim A
