Sea Pearl is always good but it is expensive.

"We end up at Sea Pearl when we go to the new Mosaic District as some of the other choices are really rather pretentious and annoying. The food is good and the bar area is lively during happy hour. Excellent and enormous martinis. But the bottom line price is a little high overall. It would be easy to go here more often as the menu is extensive, but the prices preclude this."

"Nothing to recommend this place. I can't imagine why it has survived at all. I guess people like the name or something."

The menu also offers wood-fired pizzas with over 25 beer selections for pairings fit for any food connoisseur. L’Albatros offers a seasonal cheese board, & wine list featuring over 100 bottles to enhance your dining experience.<br>We are just minutes from Severance Hall, Little Italy, & the Cleveland Art Museum.

"Not a particularly charming place but many months later my adult son is still asking to return here. Great recommendation as he is a real foodie, especially when it comes to asian food. This place raised some suspicion because it offers so many different cuisines within the "asian " label, but it did them all well. It feels a bit corporate."

"I wish Nostos would make some of its best dishes with the alternative to skip garlic. I would eat there very often. As it is everything is heavy on the garlic and I come home stinking and usually have a bad night....I've eaten in Greece plenty and not everything is layered with garlic there. But the food is excellent (I don't think you'd miss the garlic!) and the room is elegant and chic.
Major issue on the last visit. The waiter spilled half a bottle of our wine on the table. There was no offer to replace the lost wine and we had to make quite a fuss to get the table changed rather than just mopped up. My companion had wine splashed on her. No apologies or offers of assistance were made. The waiters there are rather superior and surly.

"We were here on Christmas Day which maybe explains some of the problems but half the menu was missing or run out.
The seating system they use is really annoying. No matter what time you've booked they make you wait until the session before is over. It's confusing and frustrating to have a reservation and still have to stand around waiting. No one was very friendly or polite about that. We finally got a table that was free for a while already because I made a fuss.
The food we finally got was good and the menu is fun. Our waitress was friendly and helpful and apologetic about all the off items
Terrible location but nice place.

A cabin-style watering hole with amazing food and drink, Copperwood Tavern is your oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. Specializing in seasonal American small plates, we feature prime cuts of local game, farm-raised poultry, beef and fresh fish accompanied with hearty, family-style sides.

"This is personal taste of course but there was almost nothing on the menu I wanted to order. The whole farm to table thing has led to far too many mushrooms on everything.
I ended up with a salad that was ok but the duck in it tasted of dark dark game meat and overwhelmed the other flavours in the dish. The advertised happy hour oysters were only available at the bar - not made clear up front.
Despite asking for my cocktail without vermouth, it came with plenty. Even without wine, the bill was over $100 for two.
We had high hopes of Copperwood. Its menu looked like it had moved away from the usual pub fare, burgers, ribs, fake Mexican etc etc. But the food was over wrought and over thought. Still nowhere good in Shirlington!
