A great experience.Everything was great. The environment itself is a gem. I like to cook and will not go out for just basic, mediocre food. The food at crop was beautifully presented. The menu and combinations are unique. All in all, a great experience5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was OutstandingPortions were good and presentation was outstanding. Definitely would return.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPork ChopMake sure you order the pork chop - it is simply the best5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for Mother's DayWe took my wife here for Mother's Day ... what a wonderful place, and in such a historic place! Good bar and wine selection, thought the wine prices were a bit high. Wonderful menu, well prepared food, beautifully plated, etc.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and ServiceWent for Mothers Day, the kids had the Chicken and Waffles (Best in the City). I had the Braised Short Ribs which were tender and flavorful with the addition of the Black Bean and Mole sauce. My Wife had the Ribeye, it was overcooked but the immediate rectification of the dish was well appreciated and expected as my wife had a new Ribeye back to the table within five minutes cooked to perfection. The Scallop and Pork Belly appetizers were both solid additions to the experience as well. The decor and ambience are what really set the stage for a wonderful time as the location is spot on.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAttention to DetailI was totally blown away by my lunch at Crop. The setting is a beautiful, open air, art-deco atrium with character to spare. The cocktail menu is highly inventive and fun. The food was executed to perfection. The cherry bomb appetizer is simultaneously familiar and brand new.
Above all though was the outstanding service. Few places still maintain the professional caliber of care their wait staff provided. They are clearly under the direction of an exceptional FOH manager or maitre d', and it shines through from start to finish.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for the occasionWe chose CROP for a multi-generation family graduation celebration. This is a delightful setting to show off what Cleveland really has to offer: amazing, creatively prepared food, an intriguing and beautiful reuse of architecturally appealing space, and wonderful service -- our waiter is one I'd like to have at every meal out, knowledgeable and perfectly but not overly attentive. My sons are proud of Cleveland's finer restaurants and it was great to be able to share our pride with the grandmother and future wife who haven't seen all our fair burg has to offer -- particularly, knowing that CROP is an example of what can be found here in comparison to what they've encountered in NY, Chicago and Dallas. Nicely done!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch choices were varied,Lunch choices were varied, but everyone in our group had an excellent experience. The server was very attentive and knowledgeable. The balsamic popcorn was fantastic !5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dinner!My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Crop Bistro. We loved the building before we ever took a drink or bite. It is quite extraordinary. The artisan drinks were terrific and the food and service were quite wonderful. Our waiter was not happy with the time it took to get our entrees to us and offered us a dessert gratis, even though we had not complained. We would certainly recommend Crop Bistro to anyone who appreciates fine dining.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceA unique setting, in a 1920's era bank lobby with marble columns and a high, ornate ceiling. Service was outstanding. We didn't feel rushed at all, but the service was not slow, but just a perfect pace. The balsamic popcorn (yes, popcorn) appetizer was tasty, a very creative combination. The walleye special and CAB ribeye entrees were excellent, and the chocolate napolean dessert was to die for. Overall, just an excellent experience, perfect for a special night out. We went on a Wednesday night, and the restaurant was busy, but not crowded. The only downside I could see would be that with the tile floor and stone walls, the room might be a bit noisy with a large weekend crowd.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat overall experience.Great overall experience. It takes some time to adjust to the noise level, but after awhile it's all part of the vibe.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at Crop BistroEverything about our experience at Crop Bistro was excellent. We arrived early so the 6 of us sat at the bar for drinks. Our bartender, DJ, was very knowledgeable, offered suggestions and was funny. Our dinner was excellent. We shared 3 appetisers - deviled eggs, oysters and calamari. All were excellent. For our main entrees, 3 of us ordered the veal chop, 2 fish dishes and a steak. They were all done perfectly and the sides were also excellent. This was our first time at Crop Bistro and we will definitely return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experience!LOVED Crop - great food and atmosphere. Can't wait to go back!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMCrop BChef Steve has created an outstanding restaurant in an amazing space.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMservice was excellent, foodservice was excellent, food fantastic, love the unique and different appetizers. Asked for a little warmer temperature and was accommodated right away. Great evening and absolutely beautiful restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe just went for dessert thisWe just went for dessert this time but everything was awesome.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMCream of the CropVery thrilled with our experience at Crop Bistro. The server was honest and helpful about dishes to try, and others to avoid. The mixed drinks were perfect, little to no waiting for our food and special attention paid throughout the meal. The beef short ribs were slightly dry and a little cool. I don't want a hot meal but they should have been warmer and more moist. Lemon risotto was nothing special though the texture revealed it was made in true fashion. Scallops were excellent and we thought the flavor of the chorizo roma tomatoes was divine. Great experience - would love to try the Chef's table at some point.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMBrad BWe had a very nice experience this past weekend at Crop. We were seated right on time and our server greeeted us within 5 minutes. My wife has the scallops with were very good. I had the pasta special which was papardelle with lamb and a cream sauce. It too was good but not as good as the scallops. It was a little salty for my taste. The wine list was creative and fairly priced for an upscale resaurant. The only negative was the ambiant noise. If you want a quiter table get as far away from the bar as possible. It's such a large space I'm sure it's a challenge to buffer the noise.
We will go back.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing, as always, everyAmazing, as always, every time we eat here, it seems to just get better.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu is original withThe menu is original with great flavors and combinations. I have never had a bad meal. Service is always excellent.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI was disappointed that theI was disappointed that the special Sundaymenu was a very limited Sunday menu. After making reservations through Open Rable, I needed to add individuals to our group so I called the restaurant; I believe they should have informed me that it was a limited menu. Very disappointed in the menu selection. I ordered chicken pram and it consisted of a grilled piece of chicken with a piece of cheese in top.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, the food and serviceAs always, the food and service were excellent!

Only demerit is the noise level which is distracting - wife had a headache by the end of the night.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a return visit toThis was a return visit to Crop Bistro and the food and service were as expected for this quality of a restaurant. Our party was seated slightly ahead of our reservation time and in the area I requested. All four diners were very happy with their choices and there were no leftovers! We will return again.
P.S. Not happy that no Open Table points allowed for this reservation!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was amazing. WeThe food was amazing. We started with the truffled popcorn, cherry bomb & a pork belly appetizer. All very good. For entrees we had the pork chops (outstanding), short ribs, and white fish. A good wine selection.

Great ambiance.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat!The food and service at Crops has always been great and still is, I had a steak which was perfectly cooked, wife had the scallops which again prefect.

We couldn't have been more pleased! Beautiful surroundings, stellar service, and interesting, delicious food!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you love the historic lookIf you love the historic look of "old Cleveland", the design/architecture that they preserved in Crop Bistro is magnificent! LOVED!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had the scallop appetizerWe had the scallop appetizer and the calamari. Both were delicious, perfectly prepared. I then had the braised lamb while my husband had the ribeye. My lamb fell apart and was fabulous! My husband loved his ribeye. Service was wonderful. We went on a Wednesday evening so the noise wasn't bad. I can imagine on weekends, it could be very noisy. the builiding is beautiful, however. We told them that we were going to a play and our server remembered and was attentive to this need. I highly recommend this restaurant.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a party of six andWe had a party of six and had a lovely dinner. One of our guests was from San Francisco and said the line would go around the block if Crop's was there. We loved the beer list and the architecture is fabulous. The scallops were the best I've ever had.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a business dinner at CropHad a business dinner at Crop and my guest is a foodie. We had a great meal with very friendly and competent service. I hope to take my wife there soon.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a beautiful locationWhat a beautiful location with very historic qualities. The appetizers were amazing and the energy of the environment is high! I think anyone that loves food and history will enjoy this place.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday grub onMy wife booked this for my birthday and Crop in legit. We sat at the "chef's table" which is a bar seating area over looking the kitchen which I think is super cool, although would not be the easiest for groups larger than two to converse. Food was all fantastic I had a breaded pork chop that was the bomb, and we had started with the scallop appetizer which was awesome.
Portions are frigging gigantic, but save room for baked Alaska. It is the truth.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMake sure to look up.Excellent food, great overall experience. Just bummed I forgot my bag of leftovers on the table.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Ambiance; food and serviceGreat Ambiance; food and service were superb! Beautiful ceiling but acoustics were terrible. Very difficult to hear each other with a table for 6. Would only recommend for a foursome.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA MUST DO!!!!!!! Amazing food,A MUST DO!!!!!!! Amazing food, service, building! GO!!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have gone to Crop onceWe have gone to Crop once before and it was good. Nothing outstanding but just good. I had noticed they changed up their menu so we went back for a birthday dinner and everyone was floored by the food. One of the best dining experiences I've had in a while! The only complaint I would have is that it is very loud in there. The tall ceilings echo everyone's voices so it was hard to hear the server and our on conversations.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThis visit was my first timeThis visit was my first time for dinner. I have had lunch there several times. We had a great waiter and delicious food. I will definitely return.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly Lunch at CropHad an early lunch at Crop. Not sure if the kitchen was fully awake yet. We liked the flavors and presentation of the balsamic popcorn, but the popcorn itself was not all that warm.
the crop burger and chicken saltimboca were spot on. Only complaint was the "mystery" side dish of the day. Would have been nice to know what it was in advance. memo to server; when I ask for gluten free, no bun on the burger, that means no pasta based side dishes.
We like the restaurant and will be back, but maybe later in the day.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur servers was excellent.Our servers was excellent. great wine list having Chappellett and Cliffe Lede included.

Started with salad course with an inspired Waldorf Salad and the Soft Wedge Salad, both were good sized salads with a great blend of flavors and taste (a little too much of the Pt. Reyes Blue Cheese on the wedge). Entrees included the delightful Chicken and Waffles and the hearty Lamb Shank with Porcini Risotto which again were generous portions. Dessert capped off the meal with the best Baked Alaska ever! Chocolate cake topped with Mitchell's Coffee Ice Cream and then smothered with a soft, toasted meringue topping that had us licking the plate...4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible food and excellentIncredible food and excellent experience.
