Brunch here is phenomenal. We had the
fruity pebble pancakes and the steak egg and cheese bagel. It was flawless. The steak on the sandwich was perfect and I can be very picky with meat.
Idk why the poster below said they were closed, clearly not I frequent their Taco Thursdays. The banmi taco is to die for.
Fraudulent Billing Practices...BEWARE. I visited 1/29/11 and had a dispute with them about a restaurant dot com gift certificate not being honored and so I requested my credit card be returned and I paid cash for the check only to find out they ALSO charged my credit card for the check. The manager and owner have refused to return my telephone calls or resolve the dispute. These guys are LOSERS!!!!!! Too bad, they have excellent food but are buffoons at dealing with customers! They will get what they deserve. It appears that they are now closed down. Hurrah!
Just awful. We met friends for brunch and had a 1230 reservation. We were seated promptly, but in the very back which was dark and uncomfortable. Our waiter paid little attention to our table of 8 and after almost 30 minutes of watching him walk past us I asked him to take our order. He was irritated with our presence the entire time. It took over an hour to get our food, which was cold. Our total time in the restaurant - for brunch - was 2 and a half hours. It was nearly 3 o'clock by the time we left. Service was terrible, food was not good and the atmosphere was uncomfortable. I won't go back.
Horrible Service - Great Food. Went in for Happy Hour Sushi and was told we could sit at a bar table, then a manager came over and said "you can't sit there unless you are eating." He said we could only sit at the bar even though the person at the door said we could sit at a table. Then there were no seats left at the bar and we were forced to stand for a while. Another couple were so offended by our treatment that they left. My friends and I are not going back.
I was here for Sunday brunch recently. I have never been here at other times.
This is not your grandmother's brunch. They had decent independent/alternative music playing. There is a lot of funky artwork on the walls.
There is a pretty good selection of different omelets, eggs benedict, etc. Everything was prepared great. The very polite server was efficient, staying on top of everything.
Prices were reasonable for what you get.
This place is very close to West 25th and Lorain Ave.
Reasonable prices, great food, unique ambiance. We ate 2 appetizers (one cold one hot) and two meals. Everything was presented creatively but without the pretentious high fashion dining experience where you get all art and no food. Tastes were right on, with an asian fusion blend of sauces and textures. Even steak, which is becoming harder to find in fashionable enviro-concious restaurants, was complemented with a tangy sauce (on the side of course) and a greens salad with just the right amount of bite to it. They even had a new twist on potatoes with a fry/chip hybrid (which they purport to be Beligian.) Udan was soupy and had a strong "chicken noodle soup" essence without losing its asian flair, certainly good comfort food and at $7 a solid meal in itself.
The Brillo Pad has grown up, and the party's moved from the garage to the main living room..
The idea-makers behind The Brillo have upgraded location and ambiance but remained loyal. Come for an intimate dinner of basil oil mussles meuniere, black-bean quesadillas, crabcakes or hazelnut-crusted walleye; sip a bomb martini and chat with an Indian doctor or a lawyer for the Coast Guard. The stream of techo-color boxes that read like Braille across the walls (by local artist Mark McLeeson) is a conversation piece in itself. The basement is pre-beatnik in decor, full of brick and secular lighting.The staff is reminiscent of characters from PBS' "Electric Company"; Kent at the door has the city's best vintage wardrobe and Eric still can pull off scarves.
You'd Be Like Heaven To Touch
Touch is exactly what the West Side needs: a unity point for dinner, dancing and stimulating conversation. Friday night is when it happens, but the club's weekly entertainment offerings are on the move. The staff is too creative to not continually bring in eclectic events.
Spicy Salsa. Finally, a Cleveland club that has GREAT LIVE SALSA every friday night; where the dace floor gets full of people who are just looking to have some fun. The crowd is easy going, the music is the best in Cleveland for salsa, and afterwards, its time for SAMBA! Right now, Matteo is also teaching salsa before the band begins so there is no excuse not to go. See you there.
