Found Pura Vida for a quick solo dinner on a business trip. Ate at the bar and had friendly service and their version of a veggie patty "Big Mac" - it was surprisingly good. I enjoyed my visit and will probably be back the next time I'm in town.

We had a dine-around for clients (about 100 people). Food was very good. Service could have been better. Extra bartenders would have been helpful. We also were very rushed at the end of the evening. It was obvious the staff were ready for us to leave (almost to the point of being rude). They were cleaning the tables all around... More

Discovered this restaurant by chance as we wandered from Public Square on a cold, blustery day. What a delight! Best pork shop I have ever had in my life and my friend thoroughly enjoyed her salmon. Only negative was it was a bit noisy to have a conversation.

I had the lunch special which was a mix of several Asian flavors and a small dessert that melted in my mouth. Erica was a fabulous server. Will be back.

I have not been overly impressed with the cuisine found in Cleveland...until now. Finally a restaurant that met my standards. The food was unique and wonderful. The portions were appropriate and the price was as expected due to the quality of the food. The service was good and professional. The restaurant was hip (love the lighting) and the noise level...

Went in just after they opened (a bit past 4 p.m. or so) and was the only one in the place. I was STARVING. They had a great happy hour menu and I got the burger and duck fries for $6 a piece. Portions were huge and the food was really good. Burger came with bacon and pimento cheese and... More

Pura Vida (by Brandt) is right next door to Cuyahoga Community College's Hospitality Management Program, and as a "student," I have dined here on numerous occasions and the menu is "amazing," to say the least. I am always looking for the new and different, and Pura Vida does not disappoint! The staff is wonderful and the bar offers up awesome... More
