Bar Symon Cleveland Ohio

I tried Bar Symon in Avon Lake Ohio this past weekend. I had high expectations since I love Michael Symon and respect his food. Our party consisted of 9 people. Everything was fabulous - service, food, decor, etc. I think we ordered the entire menu, LOL. My favs were as follows: Pork Belly Crutons, Duck Sliders, Creamy polenta, Lola Fries, Burger w/ fried egg, House Chips w/Blue cheese, PB&B dessert. Loved it and I am counting the days until my next Bar Symon meal!

  1. Did they take a reservation for the larger party? If not, how long was your wait? Thanks.

    1. Oooh this is excellent! I had no doubts Bar Symon would deliver.

      I read that that are only taking reservations for 6+ people. Do you know if that's accurate? I'm having a friend in town and would like to take her but it would just be 2-3 of us. Was it packed? What time did you go?

      Sorry for all of the questions! It's about an hour drive out there for me and I would hate to get there and embarass myself faced with a totally bombarded restaurant!

        They do take reservations for 6 or more. Plan on an hour wait if you do not have reservations. They do offer a great patio to have a few drinks while you wait. It is so worth it!!

      2. We just tried Bar Symon on Tuesday - everything we ate was wonderful! Pristine oysters, house-made sausage, Goat Tacos - even the meatloaf is amazing! A full photo-report is here: Can't wait to go back, even if it takes me an hour to get there!
