We went to Sokolowski's after the Santa run in Tremont on 12/15 and did not have reservations. There was 14 in our group and they were able to seat us. I have been there in the past and everytime I visit I am not disappointed. Everything they cook is delicious and the atmosphere is very fun.

First time tonight for this Cleveland landmark. The food was very good. Two of us had the pork chops – two tender, tasty, and very large pork chops. The cabbage and noodles were also great. My wife had the chicken paprikash and loved it. The fourth person had prime rib - a large piece of perfectly cooked prime rib. The pierogies are melt in your mouth good, though next time we will need to get a plate to share - one was not enough! All in all, a great experience.
Some helpful hints if this Saturday is like other Saturdays - don't come early. We left the Cleveland Museum of Art at 5pm when they close and came here thinking we would beat the dinner crowd, you know the 7 to 8 pm Saturday evening dinner crowd. But the people that come here, they come early. The place was packed – the line going from back door all the way through to the cafeteria area. It started clearing out by 7 to 7:30 so next time, and there will be a next time, we will wait until after 7 pm. Parking can be difficult, but don't give up keep looking. The wait in line though long was worth it. We will be back, and once again I will have to decide do I want the prime rib, or maybe the cabbage rolls, or the paprikash, or the meatloaf …
A recommendation to the restaurant: heat your dinner plates the food cools off very quickly.
Then I can come back with 5 stars.

The food is all very well prepared and there is enough variety to more than satisfy any fan of German and/or Eastern Europe cousine. They even have Polish beer on tap! Not a flashy place, but the right ambience to enjoy a delicious meal of hearty food.

The pierogis were in a disgusting soup of margarine. I had been dreaming of great pierogis (having moved back to the midwest from the south). I would never go there again and can't believe this place has been on Food Network several times.
