Still new to Cleveland and I'm looking for a restaurant with a view of the city to bring friends from out of town to. Any recommendations?

      2nd the rec for Pier W. It's known for the view.

      Pier W is great, but also look into Fat Cats. It is in Tremont and has an awesome view of downtown over the industrial flats.

        Ponte Vecchio has a great view. http://www.pontevecchioristorante.com/ I like the food too. the view is close up. I also like Pier W but of course it is bit more pricey. the view is further out. Fat Cats has GREAT food, but the view only exist at a couple tables and the view is more eclectic (gritty, subtle) than the others.

          This is probably too casual, but the view is impeccable. Try Hoopples on Columbus Road. It's a cozy little place with solid bar food. The view of the city is accurately represented on the home page (as of today anyway).
