The ambience here is terrific. Unique, warm and inviting. Small rooms with an authentically chic vibe, and without a trace of pretense. The service is similarly lacking in pretense, while still being top notch. This is maybe my 4th visit to the restaurant and the...More

Wonderful recommendation by the Glidden House concierge. I highly recommend this place for wonderful French Alsatian meal. I had the watercress Caesar salad and the mussels with pomme frites. Just yummy. Excellent Chardonnay from Calling.

This is good restaurant and the price/quality ratio is about perfect. The staff is very friendly and attentive. It has many names over the years as older Clevelander's will remember. The wine selection was nice but a bit out of price relationship with the menu....More

to get to the restaurant you enter via a parking lot where they charge you maybe $5 or so to park. I think they also have valet, but the lot is within 50 feet of the front door.
