First of all, the food was excellent. Secondly, the waiter was friendly, informative and not overbearing. We took our good friend from Chicago to lunch at the The Blue Door. Our friend is a connoisseur of good food, so when he asked when The Blue Door was opening a cafe in Chicago, we knew The Blue Door more than passed inspection. Come on, now, folks, how uppity can you be to write a negative review of a restaurant that has no sign marking its location and has customers waiting in line for lunch on a daily basis?

This is my third review of Fleming's and unfortunately this one is negative. I have praised this place for years and the food is still amazing but we encountered several issues on this visit. First of all I noticed no one was coming around to refill our water glasses and drink orders. Then one member of our party ordered French Onion Soup and there was a bay leaf in it. Bay leafs are a choking hazard and for anyone not knowing what they are might try to consume one. When I pointed it out to our server, she argued with me and said it was suppose to be in there. I didn't ask to speak to the manager because we were guests of friends that evening. Our server also would argue with me and I guess try to make me look dumb when I would ask simple questions. Other times when my family and I have dined here we have had the best service in the world. Our bill usually runs between $500 to $700 and I expect friendly, attentive and respectful service when I pay this amount of money.

Moe's Restaurant

Reviewed By lilirishstar - North Canton, Ohio

I reviewed Moe's a few years ago and said sit on bar side. Well, we just ate in the dining room and it was outstanding. The atmosphere, service and presentation were all very good. The food was delicious, our group of 6 tried beef tenderloin, halibut, scallops and salmon. Everyone enjoyed the entrees and various accompaniments. Prices were about $30 and included delicious bread and soup or salad. The only negative is the aweful parking lot, it wouldn't take much to improve it.

Luigis Restaurant

Reviewed By Ecospan - Cincinnati, Ohio

Luigi’s was a treat! The waitress took a lot of time with us, recommending and explaining the menu. We settled on fried Zucchini with marinara sauce for an appetizer, which was so amazing that I would have been happy eating that all night. Daughter and I split a small pizza and spaghetti with marinara and ordered two meatballs on the side. Meatballs and pasta dish were exceptional. Pizza was good, too. Overall, a hit! This is the kind of Italian restaurant that I grew up within the East Coast. Humble, photos on the wall, red-checked curtains, great food, happy waitstaff. Will return!

Reviewed By iparker5611 - Doylestown, Ohio

My husband & I came here with another couple. The food was delicious. However my friend ordered guacamole & it was sour. When she told the waitress about it she brought out another container of it but we all tasted it again & it was still pretty bad. Finally the waitress told us that the guacamole was prepackaged & has spoiled. Instead of taking it off the check she gave her free dessert but the dessert wasn’t even that good & was VERY small. I however really enjoyed my wrap & didn’t have any problems with the quality. Would go here again for the view & what I ordered.

We descended on Diamond Deli with a group of hungry swimmers and parents, and it was a great decision! Turkey Rueben, broccoli salad, Soup, Salad, Our Sweet Melissa, and friendly but efficient service. We decided we should go back every day that we are here and try something different. I grew up with this type of deli on the East Coast, and hadn’t even realized how much I miss it. Very casual, small tables and booth seating. Will return, for sure!

Reviewed By EpicGuy12 - Gilbert, Arizona

Met a buddy here for dinner and was looking forward to a great burger and this is exactly what I had. The place is very modern but has a nice laid back feel to it meaning you don't have to worry about showing up in jeans and a t-shirt to eat. I went ahead and ordered the 7th Heaven burger but opted to have the Mojo pattie which was beef mixed with andouille sausage. The burgers came out and they were a good size with a nice helping of fries on the side. It was cooked perfect and the mix of the sausage and andouille was wonderful as it provided just a touch of heat. Covered with the bacon and the onion jam and you have one amazing hamburger. Mix that with the friendly service and you have a great place to grab a burger, any time.

Crave

Reviewed By Bill J - Akron, Ohio

At dinner for 3, my pork tenderloin was nice - interesting flavors and moist (which often is not true of port). My bourbon-based cocktail was very good. My wife was lukewarm about her vegetable cassoulet, not very flavorful or interesting. Our friend reported an excellent airline chicken. Very good restaurant, although they sometimes go overboard with too many flavors in some dishes.
