Re: “Brew Garden Strongsville

Food is ok, standard american choices, quality was average. Service at this location, aside from our waitress Maddie, was HORRIBLE! We were quoted a 45 min wait, but instead stood unattended in the lobby entry for over an hour. Everyone who came in before and after us, was seated, while the terrible blonde hostess just kept saying i'm sorry no one is leaving, you just have to wait. All she did was play with and reference her touch screen contraption, and basically could not make a human choice, decision or action without it. The hostess staff never asked how we were while waiting as long as we did, nor did they make any effort in this enormous location to creatively come up with seating, putting tables together for the 6 of us - nothing. After over an hour, we prompted the hostess staff to split us up at booths we saw empty out, to avoid any further wait. The young staff was running around with one another joking, laughing, while customers just waited and looked on. They seemed to be having fun. The manager even socialized with the hostess staff, and frequently passed and just looked onto the waiting group of customer. Not sure he cared. Never a comment from him either during the hour plus wait. If you have long waits, tend to the people waiting a little - check in, direct them to the bar, ask if they need anything. Without us, your customers, you won't have paychecks - would be in your best interest as a service provider, to at a minimum, satisfy us, your customers. A table opened within minutes of us asking to be split up. You think the intelligent hostess, or her uninteractive manager would have come to move us there, NOPE - they were seating the next group. Work on you staff Brew Garden. I know they are young 20 somethings, but they are the face of your business, especially the hostess staff at the front door, and the management. Ask them to act like humans with brains, whose job is to service and please the other humans who walk in the door, and not just come to work to hang out with other staff, have fun and depend entirely on their electronic contraptions to tell them what to do next. I doubt I'll ever go back to this location. We live in a foody town with tons of amazing choices with true food quality and service. This is nowhere near a fit in that statement. To Maddie, the waitress, thank you for being the only one who made things happen and actually got us into a large booth together before our food was served.

Re: “El Tango Taqueria

This is the worst restaurant EVER. I worked for the man Antonio who owns the whole thing and he didn't pay me A DIME! I will be suing him and placing a claim against him. On top of it all he had me making alcoholic drinks knowing I was under the age of 21 years old. Police have confided in telling me he has treated multiple people this way. I see the way he makes the food and he touches everything with his fingers and then does dishes and touches money! He wraps up left over food by the dirty dishes and grabs it with his fingers. He also re-uses the left over salsa because apparently he can't afford to waste food. It's completely disgusting and unsanitary. Do NOT go there.

Re: “Johnny Malloy's S. Euclid

Very disappointed in the bar servers I would call the maids but even maids do there job waited over 30 mins to get a beer , informed mgt. They acted like they didn't care how there bar servers were treating the customer he came out thought there was a understanding but it went on for. Another 10 mins went back I formed him again nothing was done that's not how you treat customers and epically one that's been coming there for a long time guess there are plenty other bars on that block that want my money. There should be -stars given johnny malloys u get an F today.

Re: “Cucina Rustica

I am a huge fan of the pizza and marinara sauce! The restaurant is not open all days, which is disappointing. It seems to be closed whenever I want to order pizza. That being said, the pizza is great. If you dine in, you cannot order a large pizza (odd!) but large pizza is available for carry out. The bread that comes along with the salad is also very good. I try to stay away from that part, though.

Re: “Pad Thai

My experience with this place was really good, everything we ordered tasted great and was hot and nice sized portions. I live in Cleveland, and it's a 45 min. drive, but I don't mind the drive at all for the food. Loved it.

Re: “Blazin' Bill's Grand River

Blazin Bills was a great place with the best ribs and accessories. Unique decor with a spacious saloon style bar, warm and cozy for family and community. Some day this gem should return with a shine. Tim Neil

Re: “Donatos Parma (Ridge Road)

Ordered approx. 9pm. 1 large the works, big don italiano sub, cinnamon bricks street bread, and a deluxe stromboli. Order arrived almost an hour later, cold pizza. Cold stromboli, and burnt brick street bread. Weak stromboli.....Unacceptable in every way possible 31 bucks and I tipped over 3 bucks. NOT GOOD.

Re: “California Pizza Kitchen

So disappointing! They don't carry Kahlua at the bar. That's all my husband drinks. So, I guess they don't have a full bar. Strike 1! The items listed on the menu seem to be so delicious and unique. However the food was so bland and unappealing. I ordered the Moroccan-Spiced Chicken Salad. It was basically flavorless. There were maybe 4-5 chunks of chicken in there. All together they wouldn't even equal half a chicken breast. What a rip off! My husband ordered the Hawaiian BBQ Chicken Pizza. It too was bland and flavorless. Also... the wrong pizza was delivered to our table. We hadn't even realized that yet, but before we began eating the server returned to our table and retrieved that pizza telling us it was the wrong pizza. He carried it back inside (we were on the patio) and within 60 seconds he was out on the patio again serving what I believe was the same pizza to the table next to us. I have no proof but that is what I believe. We frequent Legacy Village because we live near by. But we'll never go back to California Pizza Kitchen!

Re: “Dave's Cosmic Subs

I went to the one located on Coventry rd Cleveland Hts. I ordered the incredible Dave sub,comes with thick juicy chicken breast Swiss cheese American cheese lettuce peppers and there famous daves sauce. I tasted the sub it was ok just a basic sub the bread was hard!!!!!!!!! the meat tasted just like turkey breast not chicken breast.!!!! The famous sauce tasted just like Italian dressing lol it was a incredible failure. I was disappointed because I thought the name of the sub would macthed the way it tasted but it didn't.I will never go back there i should of went to Jimmy johns Down the street instead lol

Re: “Brothers Lounge

This is a fantastic venue and it also has great food. Every night of the week, you can see live music here - even on Mondays. They feature the best musicians in town and even some out-of-town acts. There are weekly events - you can always count on big band & jazz on Monday nights, for example - but on the weekends, you never really know what's going to be playing month to month. Check out their schedule, it's got something for everyone. It's always a good time!
