Edwins Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
The food and service were outstanding, the ambiance enjoyable, the valet parking delightful (compared to most other valet services.) The fact that this institution is giving back to society makes this restaurant even more impressive. This restaurant deserves the patronage of all Clevelanders. Hats off to Brandon, the staff, and all of the men and women in training for this Cleveland Gem.
It was my first time there, but it will not be my last. When I viewed the menu online I thought it was a little pricey, but I was meeting a friend so I went. We had an marvelous time. I had the grouper and it was delicious. The servers were outstanding and their service was top notch. The only issue was when I ordered the lobster bisque, I didn't like it, but they took it back immediately and brought the soup of the day (complementary) I loved it. The bread tasted freshly baked and the butter was soft (that's a rarity) I highly recommend
this restaurant as someplace to eat when you have a special occasion. Keep up the good work Edwins.
a first rate experience all around. The bread dish and water glass was always filled , The waiter was attentive. The food was excellent especially the stewed rabbit, frogs legs and the snails. The main courses were excellent except the French style sea food soup which was very tasty but not authentic
Edwins is a Cleveland treasure. The food is always excellently prepared with a good variety offered on the menu. Le Burger is the most amazing, extravagant burger you'll ever experience. It's well worth trying on at least one visit. Our other favorites are the fish wrapped in crispy potatoes and the horseradish encrusted salmon. I recommend the poached pear tart for a delightful finish to your meal. We're so lucky to have such a high calibre restaurant in Cleveland with leaders that believe in the future of everyone.
The food was outstanding, as usual. Had the rabbit pie and lamb appetizers. Shared the chateaubriand with my date and it was exceptional. Dessert was creme brûlée and perfect! The service from everyone who came up to us was amazing but I must say that our server, Jose, was sub par. He also happened to be the bartender but he lacked a personality and the flair and attention to detail that I have come to expect from Edwin's. I was disappointed with this because I was really hoping to impress my date. Turns out he was impressed. Just not with Jose.
Wow. Each time we've gone to Edwin's, the experience only seems to get better! We've felt a strong need to support the mission of this non-profit, which educates formerly incarcerated individuals regarding all aspects of the restaurant industry, preparing them for a career in the restaurant business. To that end, all aspects of restaurant operations are included in the training. That was clearly evident during our meal - attentive, knowledgeable and exceedingly helpful staff willing to share their restaurant-related passions. Our meals were wonderfully prepared, including a unique artichoke preparation (appetizer), cold summer soups, and excellently prepared lamb chops, bronzino, and boudin, each accompanied by tasty vegetable preparations. For dessert, we ordered the chocolate pyramid (so decadent!), and the cherries jubilee (prepared table-side). The wine list was wonderful, with ample choices, including some unusual ones.
In all, we had a simply wonderful and perfectly paced dinner. We'll certainly be back!!
This was our first time - and we had a wonderful dinner. We wanted to try everything - my husband had the seafood sausage and it was wonderful (I'm not a sausage fan generally). I had the fois gras and it was very yummy! We split the salad nicoise which while good was a little smaller than we anticipated. That left room for dessert and cheese. The wine steward also made a wonderful selection for us. We asked for something new and he suggested a great Spanish wine. We can't wait to go back!
We have eaten here several times. Each time has been very enjoyable. The service is wonderful... sometimes almost too much attention 😏 The food is a delight, both in taste and in presentation. I highly recommend this restaurant for a great dining experience!
The food was amazing. My salmon cooked perfectly and my vegetarian wife was very impressed with her options. My bread plate or glass was never empty and the servers were extremely polite and efficient. I love the mission as well. The only complaint I had was it was very warm inside but it was a hot day.
The lamb chops and duck were the hits at our table; as well as, the lemon souffle and sorbet. We never had to want for anything as someone was always there to serve without being in the way. Bill our server was awesome. Very personable and happy to help us.
