Please Note: Kosar's Wood-Fired Grill is a 21+ venue only. Thank Cleveland's favorite, #19 Bernie Kosar, for the juiciest choice wet-aged steaks and chops and freshest seafood around. Cooked to perfection on the restaurant's wood-fired grill, the taste is truly out of this world. With authentic Bernie Kosar memorabilia, taken from his own personal collection, decorated throughout and big screen TVs in the bar, this is the place where the finest dining and sports atmosphere team-up for a touchdown every time.

    Way too much cheese on my French onion soup. There was more cheese than onion. The Beef Crostini was not good at all. The meat looked like it was the leftovers from trimming other pieces of meat. It was fatty and not nicely presented. The “ toast “ it was sitting was not toast but soggy pieces of bread. I have had several great meals at Kosar’s so this was very disappointing.

    Enjoyed our visit Friday night. The steaks were cooked perfectly especially given our two temperature requests. The sides were really good we had the fries and asparagus. Our server Michael N was attentive funny and well trained. He cared about the quality of service he was providing. Great table up front high top. Lots of activity around. Really fun. Overall we can’t wait to come back!

    Salmon and steak were over cooked and flavor seemed to be missing. Table that was seated next to us was very close even tho there were many other open tables. Drinks were good. Service was fine. Pricing is way too high for quality.

    Enjoyed Kosars before the David Spade show. We split mussels, salad and Kodak steak. Large portions and food was tasty. We sat at bar, and they were very busy with a weird policy of seating and spacing.

    Well done as usual. Good food (best prime rib in the area), good service, at a decent price for the quality of the food. We may lose at the slots but we lose with a well filled stomach.

    We had a mixed experience here. I had ordered the Filet cooked Medium. When it arrived, and we began to eat, I quickly realized that the steak was bad. The temperature in the middle was Medium Well, which I was ok with. The issue was that there was a layer of black soot built up on the steak. It smelled like a house fire, and tasted like licking a piece of burnt wood. It was by far the worst steak I have ever had. The waitress was very kind, but when I explained the problem, she said that is to be expected because it is a wood fired steak house. Her manager came over and we decided to switch to the chicken instead. Here's the good news. The chicken that replaced the steak was very good. Chicken was tender and juicy with great flavor. So, like I said, mixed experience.

    We had a delicious meal served pleasantly and efficiently by Sara. There were three of us and each entree was cooked expertly: petite filet, Delmonico steak, and veal. Absolutely delicious. We shared the charcuterie as an appetizer… very good. We’ll be back!

    Food was cold, service was poor, steak not prepared properly, one side was terrible in taste. To their credit they did comp the side but safe to say I won’t be back. Also, didn’t realize that the location was in a casino and didn’t enjoy the confusing walk to find the place or having to walk thru the cloud of cigarette smoke on the way in and out.
