“Vegetarian/Vegan Options Downtown!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

I was impressed that a full menu was dedicated to vegetarians and vegans…you don't often find that in Cleveland. The food was really good and we loved the decor inside. The artistic fabric draping from the ceiling looks great with the changing lights. Definitely a place I would go to again. A great place for a date or dinner with friends. Being downtown there is no parking….you will need to find a lot in the surrounding areas. Very close walk from Horseshoe Casino/Tower City.

“Another Excellent Cleveland Restaurant”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

First time dining at this restaurant, and the food was as good as the reviews. For those who are vegan, they had a very nice selection of vegan choices. For those who are not vegan, their choices were also very nice. Excellent desserts and excellent service made the experience memorable. This is a place that I would visit again.

“Fantastic Meal”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

We happened to be in downtown Cleveland on Valentine’s Day 02-14-2014. Trip Advisor listed this as one of the better restaurants in that part of the city (near the casino and ballparks). We called and they had no availability. We visited to have a drink at the bar and asked if we could order dinner at the bar. We did and the meal was fantastic. I had one of the house specialties- the African peanut stew made with sweet potato, kale, curry and peanuts and the blackened Grouper special with their signature corn bread with tomato and my wife had the beet salad with goat cheese and the black bean and basmati rice sliders. Everything was excellent and we topped it off with some great drinks -the Rosemary Margarita - The bar tender was well versed in the food choices and very helpful. The Dining Room is a wide open area so we thought eating at the bar was actually quieter and worked out very well. One of our best meals in quite some time.

“What a delight,”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

After a very rushed day, I ended up at Pura Vida. Friends had chosen to eat at this restaurant before we went on to the the cleveland beer Festival. I was unsure when we first went in, but my doubts were quickly put to rest. Our waiter, Dave! was incredible. He easily answered all our questions on the menu. When we mentioned we were going to the festival, we had quite a pleasant conversation. Then when we asked about the fish tacos, Dave suggested that since it was happy hour, we order them as the happy hour portion. We loved the fish tacos and Dave saved as money. Good call on the Brussels sprouts, too, Dave. They were yummy. Can't wait to go back to Pura Vida.
Ps. It is just across the Ontario st from the Horseshoe Casino. Not far from any sports venue in Cleveland.

“Intriguing menu with vegetarian and vegan options”
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I came to Pura Vida for the first time to celebrate our marriage with a dinner party amongst beautiful friends. Our time together was only enhanced by the creative appetizers and entrees as well as good wine and after dinner drinks. Wonderful experience.
