Seared Restaurant Open for Business

The restaurant opened at 5 p.m. on Wednesday.

The “grand opening” might not be until November, but opened its doors to customers as of 5 p.m. on Wednesday.

“We’re really excited to be a part of the community,” said assistant general manager Robin Schulze.

The restaurant, which was , is starting with a soft opening, and some details—like the exact date of the grand opening—are being kept quiet for now.

Schulze said the steak, seafood and raw bar restaurant will be serving a variety of wines and cocktails, and all the food will be made in house. Customers who want to try the raw bar will have to wait a little while still. Schulze said they expect to have that in during the next few days. Typically, that will be available as a special weekend feature.

And in the future, the restaurant plans to offer brunch on Sunday mornings.

Hours, courtesy of Schulze:

  • Monday – Wednesday: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
  • Thursday – Saturday: 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
  • Sunday: 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. (The restaurant will begin opening at 8 a.m. on Sundays once brunch is available.)

Reservations can be made online at opentable.com or by calling 440-526-8100.

Thanks for your feedback, Ron -- and Claudia, there's your football game answer!

Ron, Perfect answer to the pricing issue! The quality of the food is outstanding - definitely above the quality level of a chain restaurant.

Good to hear they do have football games. Shame on me for anticipating that they would not have tv's in a "fine dining" restaurant. I wasn't saying I would prefer other restaurants to Seared, but, being retired and living on a fixed income, I was stating that pricing was too high (in my opinion, and that of others I've spoken to who HAVE eaten there, and btw, didn't even get bread or rolls with their meals??!!) I'm really hopeful that Seared is a huge success, but, unfortunately, I don't think I can afford to go there as often as I had hoped I might. But, I will give it a try, and most certainly will let you know how my visit went. GOOD LUCK SEARED!!

We visited this restaurant recently for dinner and we were less than pleased although there is an understanding that bumps do occur with new openings. I do think they will be great soon! Pros: Kudos for bringing your establishment to Brecksville Wonderful table settings Removed booths in the bar area Nice menu selections Cons: Too many table assistants always bumping into each other and not knowing exactly what to do. Staff members singing to each other at their stations after several songs ended which was distracting and rude. Silverware ends too pointy Wrong salad delivered Chicken Balsamico looked like (we don't know what) and was drier than dried paint. Substituted side dish item not present when dinner arrived. Gave up waiting for a dinner knife when asked for a replacement and used spouses after 7 minutes. No sugar offered when ice tea was brought to the table. Manager was apologetic but arrogant. To be honest, he actually seems like he did not give a Sh** if we showed up and ate there and kept saying, “well, we’re new and I’ve opened many restaurants”. I had lunch there 2 days previously and really enjoyed the Calamari. I even ordered it again when my family and I went for dinner. But this time it chewed worse than winter tire tread and could have made it as a stand in for the Disney movie Flubber.

Went to Seared last night and had a wonderful dinner. The sea bass was excellent and my friend had a wonderful tuna dinner. The salads were fresh and very good. The staff was efficient and not intrusive. Prices are reasonable and the redecorating was well worth it. Encourage others to go and see for themselves what Seared is all about.
