Strong, good margaritas. The chips were nice and salty but we could have used more salsa. I enjoyed the carnitas and didn't even put the meat in the flour tortillas provided. I enjoy this type of Mexcian cooking - a little more fresh and authentic. My husband and father in law who are used to gigantic crappy combo platters - not so much.
Hope they change the menu and reopen the market
Our family visited for dinner last night.
What a wonderful atmosphere and friendly staff.
Management has changed but the best from the old restaurant has remained.
The authentic Mexican food is still the BEST in TOWN.
Excellent Service, huge portions, fantastic margaritas. There will soon be long lines to get in this place as the new Mi Casita Restaurant catches on in Cleveland!
I've been a fan of Neapolitan-style pies for a few years now. I've put away many at Chicago's Spacca Napoli and Coalfire, two places known for being masters of the craft. Vero deserves to be mentioned in the same breath.
San Marzano tomato sauce? Check.
Mozzarella di Bufla? Check.
Gorgeous leopard spotting on the crust? Check.
Locally sourced ingredients? Check.
Better yet, there are no TVs to compete for your attention. It's just you, the pie, and your dining companions. If you think you think Cleveland had good pizza already, this place will be a revelation. If you think Cleveland can't compete with shops in Chicago, New York or San Francisco, prepare to be proven wrong.
I went there a few weeks ago for a friends birthday and all I can say is SCAM!!!!! The guys claimed they were filming a 'reality tv pilot' when all we saw was one guy walking around with what looked like a digital camera from walmart taping some half naked little boys running around in halloween costumes.
And if you want to get raped/mugged/shot downtown, then your best chance is to go to 620. Then I talk to my friend who knows a dancer and said the one on the right went to jail for beating up his girlfriend!!! Seriously!?? And you expect to let these guys jump around on us girls??
We wil NEVER be back! Thanks for nothing Iron Men!
Gargano's is as unprofessional as they come. They were to cater a retirement party for 60 people this evening. Not only did they not show, but when we phoned them to ask where they were, they told us they had no record of the order. After trying to reach the owner for over a half hour we were forced to relocate the party and spend more money because of the last minute arrangement. The owner never returned our call and he took the order personally. No one should do business with Frank or Gargano.
Happened to read the comment above about "walkin' into the kitchens at both the Chagrin and Solon locations"
Just how does one go into the kitchens of a - not one no less, but TWO restaurants???
Wha 'da you do for a living?
While I have no experience eating at any of the Burntwood restaurants and can't speak to their level of cleanliness, or anything for that matter, however you sound like a disgruntled former employee or a competitor to me...
Walked into the kitchen at the Chagrin and Solon locations and they are GROSS! Dust and dirt everywhere, floors that felt like they have not been cleaned in months and chemicals close to where food is served and platted. YIKES - stay away from this place!
The GM - Ian is RUDE and not helpful when our party had an issue. Would NEVER got back to this place!
We love this place - food is VERY good, service has always been great - and we find drinks Very reasonable - especially during 11:30 am to 7PM happy hour.
There are people that complain - they come on ONLY on a Friday and Saturday for the AYCE crab legs (which are the cheapest around - and VERY good) - they complain when the service is not what they would get a an expensive restaurant. Hey people, this is a bar that just happens to serve good food and drinks reasonable....get over it!
It was cool, but too small. The NEW venue is Rippers Rock House on Manchester down by the cannel. Address is 2727 Manchester Rd. Great Place. Food is great and the house system is a killer Raising Hair/Jeff Hair system.
Went there last night for husband's birthday dinner. The food was pricey but the portions were generous. I enjoyed the restaurant's take on tater tots. The steak was reportedly delicious and cooked to order (rare), but the cedar plank salmon was average. The house salad was good to begin with but the red onion overbeared the taste farther into the dish. The service was extremely friendly and they served us complimentary champagne for the birthday. Overall, a good place to dine with others and take family, but a few notes short of fantastic.
It was very crowded for the halloween party and we wanted to sit down and we noticed the mgr moving a reserved sign from one table to another. I asked if we could sit at the vacated table and he said yes. He mentioned the table he was reserving was for the owner. So we sat at the vacated table. A little while later an irate woman comes up to the table yelling at us telling us the table was reserved and we needed to move. She was slamming her drink down and acting very much like a spoiled brat. We tried to explain the situation and that her table had been moved but she wouldn't listen and kept yelling. The mgr came up, showed her and apparently the owner where they were to sit. No apology, no "oops my bad" nothing from anyone, even the mgr. my friend goes up to the couple a bit later and says how rude the whole thing was and how we all deserve an apology and is that how you show good customer service. The owner pretty much said he didn't care if my friend and her little friends never came back (in apparently more interesting language). The girl started her tirade all over again. I couldn't believe an owner could be so rude and dismissive of the people who put money in his pocket.
Since the PD won't do it we depend on Scene to write the back story behind the resignation of David Franklin
Small town feel - friendly staff - outstanding reference librarian!!
Damon's is closed.
One of our favorite local restaurants. Sadly, it has closed.
I am from Florida and I visited this winery. I was so pleasantly surprised with the quality wines. The services were fantastic. I highly recommend this family owned and operated winery.
TXT'd to owner 17Sep13: Roberta May closed early because that what she does. Fuck the customer, she's gotta keep her fat self safe and scoot home to explain later, including editorial & character assassination. SHE BEARS FALSE WITNESS AGAINST HER NEIGHBORS.
Terrible service had the volunteer guy following you all night harassing you all night and walking around the party very unprofessional I believe if you pay for a hall you would enjoy your party but instead your watching this maniac to see what hes doing all night
