While in Cleveland for business, a group of clients and colleagues had dinner here. The service was excellent as was the food! I had the bone in ribeye and it was honestly one of the best steaks I have had at a restaurant. Highly recommend dining here!

The food is amazing and the service is always top notch! I highly recommend the filet mignon. I also suggest that when you place your reservation to let the host know if you are celebrating a special event. They are very courteous and accommodating!

Great Italian restaurant in the Cleveland area. Varied menu but didn't have Veal Milanese so I asked if I could have it prepared that way and they said no problem. It was sooo tasty. Setting is really classy and a deep Italian wine list. Service was very friendly but professional at the same time. Definitely will go back when in... More

This is such a nice classy place with not a bad item on the menu. It is rather expensive but plan for it in advance. It's well worth it.

Excellent food and prompt service. We had exactly one hour to eat and the restaurant was very crowded. Our server was attentive and made sure we made it out on time for our appt. The food was great $150 for a two person meal but worth it. Had crab cake and wedge salad Surf and Turf and Lobster Ravioli

I wanted to take my husband to dinner on Saturday February 18th for his birthday. When we walked in there were 3 hostesses. None of the 3 smiled or said a thing to welcome us. When I said I would like a table for 2. I was told it would be an awfully long wait. When I asked, how long... More

My husband and I stopped for lunch at Lockkeepers. At my request, we were seated by the windows overlooking the river. The ambiance is subdued with quiet music and conservative decor in dark colors. Portions were generous and well prepared. I had grilled salmon, and my husband had Arctic char. The coffee was acceptable but not good enough to have... More

This is an wonderful restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is outstanding. The variety of entrées on the menu allowed everyone in our group to select their favorite foods. I had a chicken dish and I can't wait to return to try one of the other entrées.
