Pier W Restaurant Review

: With its up-close-and-personal views of Lake Erie and the Cleveland skyline, this landmark restaurant is a stunner. The décor is clean and modern, and the space is dimly lit so that the scenery itself becomes the star. Blue cod tacos are a favorite appetizer, owing to the contrast between the sweet, soft meat and the crispy wonton shell. Among entrées, we recommend the pappardelle with its huge chunks of fresh Maine lobster dressed elegantly in a light Cognac cream sauce. The braised Angus beef short ribs have big, rich flavor and pair well with the garlicky mashed potatoes. For dessert, we suggest the pear fritters or the house-made sorbets. On Sunday, the brunch buffet is extensive and worth the splurge. Between its regular and reserve wine lists, Pier W's cellar stocks roughly 3,000 bottles.
