Description: 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.

We have come here multiple times over the years when we want a sure fire great meal. And we are never disappointed. Great drinks, food, service and views.

Started our meal with cocktails and ordered 2 Old-Fashioneds (channeling Don Draper, what can I say?) The drinks were generous and excellently mixed. I had a shrimp cocktail and the husband ordered steamed mussels, both of which were fresh and delicious. Andddd, we kept going. Ordered seared divers’ scallops on fettucine and lobster pappadelle pasta. Both were extraordinary and we probably need a few hours at a gym to repent. A shared caramel creme brûlée for dessert topped off the perfect date dinner. At least we had the sense to SHARE a dessert. I’m told the views are amazing at Pier W, but even if you go after dark like we did, the food alone is worth the visit. Excellent service too, although for some reason our waitress kept saying “Happy Anniversary” to us....and it was not an anniversary. Just another Friday night in Cleveland.

Delicious food! Great view! Very charming ambience! Waiter helped a lot in the gluten free options we needed. If you come to Cleveland you got to come to this place!

This is a great place for any special occasion. Take the elevator down from the parking lot for a cliff-hanging dining room with great view of the city.

Known as a seafood restaurant. Lobster bisque? Why of course. Top notch. Twin lobster tail special? Don’t mind if I do. Sweet and delicious. Colleagues had fish, steak, and everything in between and no one was disappointed. Extensive wine selection rounded out the meal. Our server was on point with recommendations and witt.

If you’re looking for a upscale unique dining experience, I would definitely consider this location.

Food and service was excellent. They even surprised us with a dessert which we definitely were not expecting. Shannon - our waitress - was fantastic.
