Edwins Restaurant Ratings and Reviews

We had read about this restaurant and it's unique mission. Our waiter who is completing his training period was pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. He had worked preparing the meals in the first part of his program, so he had good knowledge about the food and its preparation. The drinks and food was well prepared. My wife had the duck confit with risotto, and I had a beouf pappardelle. Both were delicious. We had the dessert souffle which was the lightest I have ever had. Delicious meal!

This was my second time (2014 and recently)to this establishment and it was absolutely wonderful this time around. There is nothing that I can even critic at this time. Truest perfect!!! I am glad I gave it another try and cannot wait for my next visit very soon.

Edwin's is a special French restaurant with excellent food. It is also a non-profit that provides restaurant job skills to individuals who have been in prison. By dining at Edwin's we helped the employees practice and refine their skills. And instead of leaving just a tip, it's a contribution to the 401(c3) non-profit. Highly Recommended!

Edwins was absolutely spectacular. The food, ambiance and the service were amazing. We will positively return and tell our friends to enjoy this incredible restaurant. They were able to provide a full menu as well as a New Year's Eve specialty menu, WOW. That is unusual on a holiday like New Year's Eve. It was beyond our expectations. Go and enjoy.

Great food, great service, great mission! Really enjoyed our dinner here with friends. The staff was amazing...very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. The Le Burger was awesome, as was the rabbit and the bananas foster too.

Our party of six went to Edwin's during Christmastime for a holiday get-together of old friends . We thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The beautiful dining room, attentive service and delicious food was very good. The artichoke small plate was disappointing though- low flavor and the three halves were a bit spartan and almost seemed canned. We had the cheese cart - a huge assortment of cheeses brought to our table and explained by a very knowledgeable server. Some at our table thought it was a little much- taking too long because of too many choices. I was a little disappointed in that our selections were one-ounce cuts at $4 each. That's $64 per pound- a little overboard even for a fine French restaurant. Entrees were done very well. My companion had the scallop dish. Beautifully done but she was disappointed in
that this $33 entree consisted of three scallops and some beautifully presented potato purée. I think you see a pattern in this review- great place but slightly pretentious in its serving size and price decisions.

I loved how many vegan and vegetarian options there were on the menu, which is unusual for a French restaurant. I love the mission of the restaurant, but the servers were definitely inexperienced when it came to answering questions about how dishes were prepared. (And when they came back with an answer, they weren't actually answers.) That said, I'd highly recommend this place for someone looking for an upscale dining experience in Cleveland.

Repeat dining experience at this fantastic restaurant. Classical French cuisine executed in a very competent fashion by earnest, hard-working, friendly staff.
I've been here three times and each visit was special. Tableside preparations of entrees and desserts. Perfect spot for a romantic date.

Edwins is always wonderful. My duck leg was crispy on the outside, tender, fall off the bone delicious and was top of mushroom rosotto that was to die for. The bananas foster was fun. The beet salad with crispy fried goat cheese was a repeat for me...sooo good! It is a very intimate atmosphere, was full but not noisy. A most enjoyable evening.

We love this restaurant not just for the beautifully prepared french cuisine, impeccable service, and elegant ambiance, but also for the mission of Edwins foundation and leadership program. You will have a beautiful and joyous dining experience here. Leave a big tip - it counts as a charitable donation!

We have dined here on 2 occasions and both times we were thrilled. The food is fantastic and the service is also wonderful. The staff are all students of a transitional program to build work experience on their resume and they are great! It is such a positive experience that we even enjoy paying the bill.

Had heard about Edwin's, liked the concept so decided to go there with a friend. If you want to go to a restaurant where they really want to treat you well, try Edwin's. The servers are almost too eager to please, but I haven't found that quality in any other establishment in a long time. My friend ordered salmon and did not specify that she wanted it well done. The server came over after one bite and asked it it was cooked to her satisfaction. She asked to have it cooked a bit more. He whisked it away to the kitchen with apologies (he did nothing wrong). Soon after the maitre d came over to her with a complimentary soup while she waited. The salmon came back and it was perfect. The entire staff seemed to have the same commitment to service. How nice to be valued as a customer for a change.

What a treat to have dinner at Edwin's, a favorite local restaurant that is often difficult to get into due to its popularity. We were there with friends and had a relaxed fun evening. My sauvignon blanc was terrific--recommended by our server. The fruits de mer came as a sausage, which was a surprise to us, but very yummy. We had the salmon encrusted with horseradish and our friends the scallops. Both entrees exceeded expectations and were prepared and presented perfectly. What a great concept; what a great staff. We are so glad to have Edwin's in our Shaker Square neighborhood.

Outstanding experience. This is our second time to dine here. It was every bit as good as the first time. The food is expertly prepared and the service is fantastic. We have had the opportunity to eat all of over the United States and throughout Europe and I can honestly say that the service at Edwin's is some of the most attentive and pleasant we have ever had. The serving team and management as well as the owner work as a team to ensure the highest quality experience for the customers. Our party of 5 had the pleasure of sampling several entrees -all of which were superb. The soup du jour was a lovely winter squash and sweet potato with perfectly seasoned flavor. The desserts are mouthwateringly good! The chocolate pyramid is like a little piece of chocolate heaven. Truly, I cannot recommend this place enough.

Excellent food! We tried a wide variety of dishes including rabbit, guinea hen, venison, salmon and grouper. Everyone in our party said it was the best meal they had ever eaten and everyone will return again! The music is very hip, but a little loud making so conversations at times were hard to hear. Desserts were fun. Try the bananas foster! Service very attentive! Well done, Edwin's!
