Severance Restaurant
The restaurant inside Severance Hall is now known as Sammy's. Apparently, since it caters to a crowd that arrives an hour or two before each orchestra performance, (all at once) the all-inclusive buffet format is logical. The buffet is $40 and includes an appetizer, salad, several entree items, as well as coffee and GOOD desserts. This past week was my 2nd time dining there and the service staff is good, the atmosphere is nice and I liked that my aunt (a vegetarian) was even satisfied with the food options. The only downsides are that customer traffic is moving past your table to and from the buffet alot and there was only (1) appetizer offering on my last visit, a creamy seafood soup, which I typically don't eat on my new diet. (it looked good though!)

Like walking back in time to the 1940s or 1950s, it's sort of like a hipster-Mitchell's Ice Cream. Definitely a cool place to satisfy your sweet tooth with your sweetie! MUCH better than the one they installed at Progressive Field, where the line is too long, the prices are inflated, and the selections are minimal. At THIS location, you at least get better ambiance. The ice cream is divine, though they do have old-time candy and some interesting sandwich selections, like their PB&J. I'm always a sucker for their coffee ice cream or salted-caramel ice cream but will have to try their malts the next time we go.

Bricco
This is a very good Italian restaurant. Prices are a little on the high side but customers receive nice size portions. I had the veal parmesan at $13, and I though it was delicious. This is not your typical Italian restaurant its way better. The restaurant was very clean along with a warming atmosphere. The only downside to this place is that there were not that many items on the menu to choose from. Overall it was very good. If I am ever up in Cleveland again, I will pay Briccos a visit for dinner.

Xo Prime Steaks
WOW. 2nd date with a special lady went very well at XO! It was a pricey night out, but mission accomplished. We had the calamari and crab cake appetizers. For main course we each ordered a steak (superb) and on the waiter's (Tommy) recommendation, we split a HUGE lobster tail that they had on special. This tail was easily 5 inches wide and 10 inches long. I think this lobster was on steroids. Have been to XO before and after I pay down my credit card balance from this meal, I will be back. LOL

Melt Bar & Grilled
Melt Bar & Grilled is definitely one of my favorite Cleveland restaurants. All of the different sandwiches are incredibly unique while still somehow being a grilled cheese sandwich. While many people have said that Melt has long wait times, this is no longer the case. I went on a Friday night, was able to get a table without waiting and got my food right away. Good things are worth waiting for so anyone who has complained in the past are just a bunch of whiners. Melt is great!

Clifton Martini & Wine Bar
Good food. Poor service.. Party of five Saturday night appetizers served along with meal rather than before. Steaks and pork chops served with no steak knives Watery onion soup . Major chip on water glass which had to be replaced. Live in the neighborhood and have eaten here numerous times and service is consistent ly poor. Will be hesitant to take my guests back. Food two stars. Service no stars.

Disappointed in the food. For such an expensive place, the food I ordered was not up to par -- the chicken dish tasted like old chicken thighs. My wife's food, on the other hand, was better. She ordered corn chowder (excellent) and a steak (good). I did like the unique atmosphere of the old converted bank, but overall this was very disappointing. Go to Luxe instead.

Takeover
The food was good for what it was, I wasn't expecting gourmet but just something to eat when I don't want to cook and don't want typical fast food. Yes some items were probably store bought, but they don't claim to make everything from scratch. Overall good food, clean place, and they even have a customer rewards program. They're trying

The food is on par with any restaurant we have visited in the United States.The wine list well thought and priced accordingly. Selections by the glass are beyond the quality of most restaurants in this region. The service is elegantly casual enough not to be pretentious yet very caring with attention to details that matter.

Have eaten their twice and overall rating is B to a B+. Service is often awkward and slow. Prices are above-average to high. Atmosphere is fairly nice. Food quality was pretty good. It is one of those places where I would return, but wouldn't go out of my way to do so.

Just a moment...
