Pickwick & Frolic Ratings and Reviews
We arrived for our 6:30 p.m. reservation a minute early and were immediately seated. It was a busy Saturday night and my son and I decided to eat there before the Hall and Oates concert.
To make a long story short, we waited 45 minutes for our entrees. I complained to the waitress at one point that people who were seated after us had already received their entrees. She brought them out shortly after that. My chicken dish was warm but my son's pizza was cold. I believe we received the poor service that we did because we were not going to have a big bill and the waitress figured her tip wouldn't be much. I watched this waitress with her bigger tables and she appeared much more efficient. Even so, my son left her a 15 per cent tip for extremely poor service. We will probably not be back to this restaurant anytime soon.
I used to absolutely love this place. Now unfortunately it's just average, over priced food. Wine list is pretty good still. Our server was nice. Comedy club is also still great. This place was the anchor that started & has held East 4th street as a bustling Cleveland hot spot I hope the food comes back around.
Pickwick & Frolic is a great place to relax and unwind. The staff are always polite and very friendly. I ordered an 18oz steak medium rare, but it was rare; almost seared. The salad I ordered was a little runny. I've dined here and attended Hilarities on many occasions. I was a little disappointed that I planned a birthday dinner and my birthday friend did not enjoy his dinner.
My husband and I had our first date at Pickwick and Frolic in 2009. He's from Arkansas and I'm from the Cleveland area. We married in 2010 and I relocated to AR. This weekend we were in town for a family event and decided to re-live our 1st date. Everything was great especially the food and ambiance. We both had the Cowboy Ribeye which was phenomenal! Got to meet the cook afterwards and he was very appreciative of the compliments. Our evening was topped off with a comedy show downstairs at Hillarities. Wonderful night overall, just like 8yrs ago on our 1st date (minus the nervousness 😉).
Our Server was on top of everything. 5 star service for sure. Food tasted amazing and was prepped perfect. I would say food prices are fair considering how great the food tasted and portion sizes. The only negative is drink prices, most drinks were a minimum if $9 per drink. My drink was literally a 4 oz glass with a shot of liquor on the rocks.... $9. Kind of ridiculous
My husband and I dined at Pickwick & Frolic for the first time before attending the Bill Burr show at Hilarities. The atmosphere was great ...very cozy, comfortable, and inviting ...our waiter was awesome, the food was delicious, and the alcohol beverages were quite tasty! We also enjoyed the martini bar (very 'swanky'!) 😊 We will definitely be returning soon and will likely use Open Table again. It made our experience more enjoyable from beginning to end 👍
The food was really good. Service was also very good. Unfortunately to no fault of the restaurant the table behind us had a child that let out a blood curdling scream every few minutes. The parents did not seem to care as this carried on our entire meal. Some people only care about themselves. SO RUDE!!!
Went for Easter Brunch and the staff was super friendly and attentive which for brunch sometimes the staff disappears. The food selection was great, they had a ton of breakfast, lunch and desert options and the quality was really great for the price too. Will definitely be back.
Prime rib, filet and walleye were all exceptional dinner choices by our table.
We did have to ask for rolls, which took an additional 12 minutes and service
was a little slow taking our orders and the food arriving. We thought allowing an hour for dinner was plenty of time as we are not appetizer or dessert people.
Pickwick & Frolic is, without question or debate, my favorite restaurant in all of Northeast Ohio. It's the perfect setting for any gathering. Great for pre- and post- Cavs and Indians games as well as concerts at the nearby Q. The dining options are many and varied--but ALL fantastic. The service is the best of the best and the drinks, wine and Ohio's only champagne bar are simply incredible. The owner and his amazing staff will treat you like family. Plus you have an array of entertainment options, as well, right there with Hilarities Comedy Club (best in the nation) plus their hip, retro Martini Bar as well as their cabaret shows, murder mystery dinners and some great holiday buffet dining for the entire family and large groups of friends.
Do yourself a favor and visit Pickwick & Frolic. It has everything thing you need--all right there in the same ideal location--for the perfect evening with family and/or friends or just that ideal romantic/fun date night.
Try it. You'll love it!
Very nice experience overall. We arrived about 10 minutes early and our table was ready and waiting for us. We had a terrific window table! I love being able to enjoy the view while eating. Our waiter, Joshua, was outstanding- very nice, attentive to us and all of his tables, not overbearing, was a pleasure to talk to and gave superb recommendations. The food was fantastic. I feel that some of it is overpriced, but the location kind of dictates that. We were there for a pre-concert dinner so it was extremely packed and very loud, however it was still a nice experience. so glad we made reservations! There was much on the menu that i would like to go back and try.
The service was friendly and efficient getting us seated, served and checked out in time to make our 7:00pm show at Hilarities. Our server suggested the steak sandwich for me and let me substitute the root vegetables in place of the fries. Both were amazing! Great evening from start to finish.
My husband and I were celebrating our 10 year anniversary and we had reservations at 5:00. We showed up a little early and got seated right away. It was not busy at this time. We had a table top of 4 seated next to us with in minutes of sitting down. It was not an intimate seating. We would have likes to not be so close to the people next to us but over all everything was good.
