Wild Mango Restaurant and Bar

Reviewed By shirley0415 - Rehoboth Beach, Delaware

We had high hopes based on the reviews we read so we were most disappointed. The decor needs some updating as the booth we had was in dilapidated condition. We ordered chicken pot stickers. They came cold and without dipping sauce. We sent them back. The server we asked for sauce did not speak English well enough to understand what we wanted. Eventually we did get sauce. The pot stickers returned and were hot. The main courses were fine but not exceptional. The soda was flat.
And we had to wait a long time for a check. Throughout our meal the people at the next table were arguing with the waiter about their check -- and while that is not food-related, it made the dining experience unpleasant. Would never go back here.

I have visited CCF's a few times in other location and was satisfied with the meal. This location however was a bummer. Got a table right away, good. Server greeted us promptly, good. Ordered food and waited 45 minutes....BAD. This is another chain restaurant that has a vast menu selection but lacks the ability to provide a "freshly prepared" meal in many cases (see my review on Quaker Steak and Lube). The wife order a specialty French Toast only to find out 30 minutes later that they were out and substituted the standard variety. I had fish and chips. once we finally got our meals, my fish was very greasy and mushy. It was not edible.
As a saving gesture from a poor rating, the manager comp'd the wife's meal.

Arrabiata's Italian Restaurant

Reviewed By Limbiclady5 - Lakewood, Ohio

Great food, great drinks, great service: They will listen to your additions and changes to their standard menu. We think their happy hour/early bird is lovely. The bartenders are great and the food is delightful. I try different things - love the D'Agnese shrimp, ravioli, mushroom lasagne and mussels possilipo and wedding soup. Give it a try. all are great!

Fragapane Bakeries & Deli

Reviewed By SallyB30007 - Bay Village, Ohio

The maple cream sticks are the bomb! This is a traditional bakery with traditional style confections. Get there before 11am most days or the maple cream sticks and other favorite varieties may be gone for the day. Plan your Sunday visit around the St. Raphael's church schedule. I noticed many of the church goers stop at the bakery after services so it gets crowded briefly, then subsides until the next service lets out. Yum, yum, yum!!

Sangria y tapas

Spanish and Portuguese fine dining in a casual atmosphere. Many cold and hot taps as well as entrees and daily specials. Wide range of prices, to fit any budget and served by a professional wait staff. Fun happy hour Monday through Saturday in the bar.

Reviewed By Glenn J - Florence, Alabama

This was a good find. A local restaurant with great food and service. It was a little deceiving on Trip Advisor since I searched for “Latin” food. It was more Mediterranean food. I had the seafood platter with shrimp, lobster, calamari, octopus, scallops, and mussels. Very tasty!

Cabin Club Steak House

Reviewed By Jeffrey123456789 - Westlake, Ohio

This log cabin venue looks magical at Christmas, with little white lights and pine roping on the ceiling and walls. The food can be exquisite, and the service is unusually efficient, courteous, and professional. Our food varied from good to memorable. The sound level can be distracting for quiet conversation.
I can say that they really care about your experience, so just let them know what you need. This is a fine dining experience.

Fat Heads Brewery & Saloon

Chill out man! Enjoy one of our award winning beers brewed on site with one of our Headwiches( Sandwiches roughly the size of your head). Our smokehouse wings are slow smoked with hickory and grilled and basted with a house made sauce of your choice. Hickory smoked pulled pork can be found on a stone oven pizza, burrito, a Headwich, on top of a burger, in our chili on top of a mound of our fresh cut fries. Enjoy our uncivilized and aggressive Head Hunter IPA or maybe our Bumbleberry Honey Blueberry ale is more your speed. Cheers!

#1 - GO THERE HUNGRY! Portions are huge / plenty to share! The menu selections seem endless! Ribs, chicken, wings, pasta, salads, burgers, sandwiches, wings & pizza. I had “The Clevelander”, a sandwich of kielbasa, bratwurst, spicy kraut, cheese and Stadium mustard. WOW! One of the best sandwiches I’ve had! #2 - go thirsty! The craft beer menu is also extensive. The night we dined there, they had two smoked beers! A porter and a lager! Both were excellent! Our server, Kelly did a great job. Well done, Fat Heads crew!

Everyone should be treated to the delicious homemade taste at least once this summer. You will find your special flavor and not be disappointed. Our favorite flavor is Salted Caramel and we always bring a quart home. I try a new flavor while in the shop, but bring home everyone's favorite. A definite stop every time in Westlake. They also have a shop in Avon.

Web Site is very descriptive, you should have no issue finding it.

Reviewed By Tims315 - Lakewood, Ohio

The Bay Diner is nestled away in a shopping center but is a great place for breakfast. I was called away with an important call and my server put my plate under the heat lamp to keep it warm. I had left my place at the counter to take the call outside so I wouldn't disturb the other guests.

Chick-fil-A

Reviewed By kimcht - cleveland ohio

The food at chick-fil-a is always fresh and tasty. This location is clean, the service is good, but parking can be a problem. The drive through line often requires you to drive all the way around the building to get in line as the parking lot is so small.
