  • Gourmet twist to a well-known dish
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/25/2014
    I was amazed by the excellent combination of flavors that I received. The flavors were perfectly blended to and I was blown away by gourmet style a simple recipe: chicken and waffles. The collard green mix that included onion and ham was savory and surprising. To top it all off, the plate was drizzled with some sort of maple syrup that complimented all flavors included. Furthermore, besides the amazing food, our server, Brad (I think that was his name), was personable, knowledgeable, friendly, informative and courteous. My girlfriend and I were celebrating our sixth anniversary as a couple and we just happen to stumble upon the restaurant online- I am very happy that I did. I will make sure to let everyone I know about Crop Bistro.

    My meal: chile deviled egg with crispy prosciutto, seared ahi tuna, scallop in truffle cream sauce, beet salad with nut goat cheese and pear, crispy pork belly in a white bean and tomato cream sauce, and korean bbq short rib. For the scallop and the pork belly, the sauces weren't just complementary, they were the centerpiece of the courses, and boldly owned that stage. Don't get me wrong, the primaries were prepared very well, but, they were merely academy award nominees in a supporting role. The tuna was perfect - it was very tender and melted in your mouth. And the korean short rib simply fell apart right into the perfect pairing of coconut curry rice and wasabi kim chi. All in all a fantastic meal. Highly recommend.

    My husband and I were looking to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary and had heard great things about Crop Bistro, so I decided to surprise him. We couldn't have had a better evening and dining experience. The food was out of this world...packed with interesting flavors and wonderful presentation. The entire staff was friendly and courteous; the hostesses, our great waitress, Cheryl, and the gentleman that poured our water and removed our dishes. Perhaps the coolest thing was to be eating dinner in a former bank building that was part of Cleveland's history. The interior was stunning and it is so nice that the owners kept the historic majesty of the original building. Crop Bistro shouldn't be missed. We are loyal fans now!

    Peach flatbread had no taste - peaches not ripe at all - told manager - didn't offer anything else - think I did it too nicely, but he should've at least offered, no? Ran out of wine ordered - waiter offered a diff wine - good choice. Ordered truffle popcorn to go - got wrong one - gooey cheese/basil popcorn that was not only the wrong one, but just did NOT work at all. Chicken waffle very good - salads were, too. I'd try this, but stick with the chicken/salad combo.

    When asked where he wanted his birthday dinner, my 17 year old son answered Crop without hesitation. We had celebrated my 50th here in December and it left quite an impression. Crop and their amazing staff did not disappoint Saturday night. The food is remarkable, but in my mind, the ambiance and the impeccable service really makes Crop stand out. We will definitely be back soon...possibly in Nov when my other son has his birthday!

    The food and service was excellent. I had the short ribs and my wife had the beet salad and calamari. We were both thrilled with the quality, taste, and presentation of our meals. Our waitress and staff were attentive but not overbearing....perfection!!! The interior of the building is beautiful, but the high ceilings add to moderately high noise level. We were there with a group of 6 and is was difficult to hear others at our table at times. We have been to Crop several times and have never been disappointed. We stopped at a few surrounding establishments for cocktails both before and after dinner. The West Side Market area is great.

    My husband and I hate the term, but we have to admit, we're foodies. The ambiance was amazing and we loved that someone used the old bank for a great purpose. Although my husband is a steak snob so he didn't love his ribeye, but my rack of lamb was to die for! Also the flying fig cocktail was delicious! Bacon should come w every drink! The service was excellent and I would return in a heartbeat.

    We enjoyed our dinner very much with one exception, our waiter. Before he even knew that we were ordering from the bar he attitude left a lot to be desired. We did get good service from the person who buses the table: he refilled water, ice tea, supplies additional napkins and silverware but our waiter was no where in sight.

    I am a busy mother of two, so my husband and I only get to go out for a nice dinner maybe 2-3 times per year. We chose Crop Bistro based on the recommendations of others and strong online reviews, and it was one of the best meals I've had in a long time! We made reservations a little on the early side (5pm), and were seated promptly. The interior of the restaurant was stunning. Yes, it was a little noisy, but I could hear my husband without any difficulty. We started with the scallop appetizer, which was AMAZING! It was almost too pretty to eat. I got the crispy fried chicken and he got the salmon. Both were perfectly cooked, and absolutely delicious. Our server was polite and attentive without being overbearing. I would go back!

    Beautiful restaurant, good looking menu, descent service, but average (at best) food. Presentation was good. Our group of four shared 6 appetizers and two entrees. Of the 6 apps, one was very good, one was pretty good, three were ok and one was terrible. Of the two entrees, one was pretty good and one was a very poor quality steak (chewy and tasteless) that I doubt was CAB (as advertised). Expected much more and was very disappointing, especially for the $ we spent. Will not return.

    Our first time at Crop this past Saturday. LOVE the interior with the tall and beautifully adorned ceiling, tall pillars and original art on the walls. Arched windows. They just don't make banks the way they used to. What a feast for the eyes. The food was delicious! I could have been happy with all of the entrees. I settled on the corn ravioli with shrimp. My husband had the short ribs. Yum!!!! Service was very good as well. Our server was Professional, attentive and he knew the menu well. I'm looking forward to returning soon!!

    Crop is in an old bank building in the busy warehouse area. It is a big place and despite the crowd noises wife and I had no problem talking with each other. The bar staff was friendly while we waited. The food was delicious. One of us had the , Corn Ravioli. The shrimp were big and tasty but the star of the dish was the corn. The other meal was the salmon. All in all a very satisfying evening I recommend you try it when you Re in Cleveland

Watch out for the devil bloody mary, my sister in law said it was too spicy unless you like that. The prices were reasonable. The building was just beautiful.

    Enjoyed our evening from drinks to desserts. Nice selection of appetizers and entrees. All were prepared very well except the ribeye entrée was a bit overcooked and thus a bit chewy- ordered medium rare, came out medium or more. The other 6 entrees were perfect. A bit of a wait between the soup/salad course and the entrée. Crowded and noisy. Hard to carry on a conversation as the ambient noise level was very loud. Overall a good experience. One of the most beautiful restaurants in Cleveland.
