"Went on a Tuesday night before a show at the Beachland. The place was pretty empty, so we opted to sit at the bar. The bartender, Richard, (who was terrific btw), introduced himself and got us setup with water and drinks. Tuesday is taco night, so we ordered a couple each. All were delicious. The only knock is we thought the regular entree prices were a bit on the high side."

"This was our third visit to Bistro 185 and th eonly complaint I have about the place is that it tends to be pretty crowded. Since it is located in one of those little converted corner bar type places, it lacks a spacious dining area. If you like outdoor dining , the space is almost non-existent. But The food is always exceptional. This past Saturday, I had the short ribs, while Hubby opted for the Veal. Both were excellent choices. The servers were very busy, but went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed . I've noticed that the menu changes from time to time. It will be interesting to see what they have on it come Summer. We do have an anniversary coming up in June.."

"I heard so many good things, I was excited to go. Let's start with the good, the service was very good, scallops were cooked well and we loved our salads. Unfortunately, the calamari was very greasy and salty ( and I like salt) and the risotto had crunchy vegetables and different from what was described on the menu. The there was way too much of the bacon that wrapped the scallops and it was chewy. The Steak Oscar was fair. Dark and dated."

"Services was terrific as well as the food and the atmosphere was pleasant. One of the people I brought lived in this neighborhood for many years before moving out of town. She and another friend loved it and said they would return. I love coming here and am mostly here at lunchtime. It was great to enjoy the specials and ambiance at dinnertime too!"

"Had not been there for a while and was shocked at the prices for a "bar-restaurant"The food , though was excellent. The young chef very creative.. I do not think they can maintain those prices . 9.50 for a salad kept us from ordering one especially with the entree price being high .The chef should be in a gourmet restaurant.. Service was very good.. It's a little dark inside also.."

"A fine neighborhood restaurant--with touches of Cleveland ethnicity--where I always look forward to dining. Small point: Has it become a mark of sophistication among restaurants not to serve bread unless requested by customers?"

"SOMETHING WAS VERY "OFF" AT LAST VISIT TO BISTRO 185. SERVICE WAS ACTUALLY POOR, AND THE FOOD WAS OFF. ORDERED MY USUAL DISH AND IT WAS NOT AS GOOD AS IN THE PAST. GIVING THIS PLACE A BREAK FOR A WHILE. THE STANDARD IS MUCH BETTER IMO, RIGHT DOWN THE STREET."

"Four of us for dinner and each one had a different delicious entree. I chose to have crab cakes and Bibb lettuce salad instead of a regular entree. Cakes were so tasty and I shared my big very good salad. The white bass dinner, steak oscar and mussels with scampi were enjoyed by the others. Two bottles of wine and one gin and tonic (the best of any bar around) were also part of the evening. This has always been one of our favorite restaurants....never disappointed."

"My girlfriend and I went to Bistro 185 for lunch. I read that it was one of the top restaurants in Cleveland. We had lunch there. The waitress was friendly and knowledgeable! She was very attentive to our requests. The only suggestion would be turn up the lights, especially during lunch. Otherwise, I will be returning and I strongly recommended Bistro 185 to my family and friends!"
