Nice Fun Evening. This is a very nice place, and great for a fun evening out.
Don't eat here before the show.
Whoever recommended the food at Pickwicks has not eaten tastey food. The food was too salty which is usually a sign of an inexperienced chef. The food was swimming in the sauce rather than being complimented by it.
Initially we were waited on quickly and got our water and warm rolls so the first impression was favorable. After that our table was forgotten. Once we finished eating our table was never cleared one of my pet peeves when eating out. Also I substituted kale for spinach on my dish and was charged extra for doing so although this was not mentioned at the time I made the substitution. There were two dishes on the menu priced the same only one came with spinach which I do not eat and the other featured kale. Who knew there would be an extra charge?
I would not recommend this restaurant when there is a city which offers many other options.
Poor Service and Food at Pickwick and Frolic!.
The service and food was terrible. We waited for 25 minute in a semi empty dinning room just for the waitress to come to our table. Then the food took for ever to show up . the quality of the food was at best questionable, almost without exception, Very bland. It looked and tasted like food from a cheep buffet left sitting out too long.
The waitress attitude was one of indifference, She seemed more interested in talking to her coworkers than our table. Overall the experience left us feeling frustrated and cheated. What was supposed to be a special night turned out to be a big disappointment.
We will never return to Pickwick and Frolic!.
Menu food was good, stay away from the Sunday brunch. Lunch from the menu was good when I went. I was disappointed in the Sunday brunch however. It wasn't that great of a choice and they wouldn't cut the roast beef. I noticed long lines developed continuously when new people came in. For that price I thought that was pretty cheap of them.
Great service, fun, warm atmosphere and SOMETHING different to do!!!!. I have been to Pickwick & Frolic Restaurant and Club two times now and both have been great experiences. The first time, we just went and enjoyed an ABSOLUTELY hilarious comedian at Hilarities comedy club (which is right inside and downstairs). This made us want to come back and we did, about a week or two before Christmas and had a nice dinner (their meatloaf was excellent and very hearty and their warm flatbreads and dip were extraordinary!) After dinner, we went downstairs to their (absolutely fabulous and beautiful martini bar) and cabaret. The SHOW WAS FANTASTIC! The performance was more like something you would see at a Las Vegas cabaret and something rarely experienced in Cleveland, Ohio. I highly recommend their Christmas show, it was wonderful with good drinks (try their Moscato wine!) and a nice atmosphere. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED and we'll definitely be back, perhaps converting more of our friends to "Pickwick and Frolickers!"
Poor sevice on a slow night. We had rented a room at the Residence Inn around the corner for the Browns/Bears game on thur night and stopped in after for a few drinks. We waited 5 minutes for EITHER of the Bartenders to acknowledge us. Neither did. A blonde and a brunette (wearing matching red tanks) walked past us a few times. The bar was not busy! There were about 30 people in there including the tables. The brunette was too interested in drinking (I saw her do 2 shots during the time I was there) with her friends at the end of the bar and the blonde I have no idea about. She wasn't too busy serving other guests, that was for sure. I feel this is ridiculous that on a non busy night there is a wait like that for service. We left without even so much as a hello from either. On the way out we made a comment to the valets about the lack of service and their response indicated this wasn't the first time they had heard this. While we were talking to them a couple that was waiting for their car from the valet chimed in about the poor service too. I will not be coming in again, nor will my friend that was with me.

This two-tiered, Victorian-inspired spot brings white-linen dining, sassy martinis and laughter to the historic Cleveland Opera House site. Downstairs, a 425-seat comedy club offers post-Leno, but pre-sitcom, stand-up acts. Power diners appreciate the club atmosphere upstairs, while stylish patrons prefer the sleek Saarinen chairs in the lounge. Wood-fired fare, such as flatbread pizza, and rotisserie chicken served with the house "porridge" (a hearty cheddar-ale soup) headline the rustic American menu in the dining room.
