The Greenhouse Tavern
Greenhouse EnvyThe Greenhouse Tavern is an exceptional eatery from the up cycled interior, service and especially the local farm to table menu concept. Chef Sawyer is a genius with unique taste combinations. Our Mothers Day dinner started with an unexpected complimentary glass of champagne! We enjoyed the "best pasta I have ever tasted" ! What a unique combination with a fresh taste! I consider myself and our fellow diners I was with as "foodies". We appreciated our dining experience and thought about it for an hour as we drove home!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMUnique, fresh menuThe flavors in every dish were amazing. Service is knowledgable and friendly. A wonderful dining experience!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome night out!Service was excellent. Our waitress took the time to explain the menu to us in great detail since it was our first time there. Food was to die for!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest MealGet the chef's tasting menu so you can try all 4 courses. We both ordered that and got to try 8 different items. All delicious! The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the menu and makes excellent recommendations. The popcorn dessert was wonderful. Add $10 onto your bill and that buys the kitchen staff a coffee or a drink at the end of the night5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous for foodiesThe food was absolutely phenomenal, fresh and the dishes unique. The menu can be a bit pricey if have all the courses, but a wonderful treat. The buttered popcorn pot de creme was the icing on the cake.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch!Had a really great lunch bringing my co-workers for the first time. The fish "sandwich" was a table favorite that I wish I ordered. Loved the crusted outside in place of the usual giant amount bread. I was very happy with my perfectly cooked lamb burger. Terrific meat and veg choices for lunch!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMHands down the best burgerHands down the best burger and bread board in town! Had chicken wings as well.

I will definitely be back to try more!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to The Greenhouse Tavern. Our server was very helpful with suggestions. We shared appetizers and loved the bread board and chicken wings. Our dinners were equally delicious. My husband loved his lamb burger! We can't wait to return!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a superlative restaurantThis is a superlative restaurant in every way. Particularly unique among its peer restaurants is that the chef here has clearly given thought and applied his amazing creativity to healthful but delicious options. There is an excellent selection of vegan and vegetarian options. And in place of such unwelcome enhancements as butter and cream sauces, the chef substitutes creativity and imagination in the employment of healthier options like yogurt and vegetable purées.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was eclectic and delicious,Food was eclectic and delicious, we were downstairs at one of the chef's tables which gave us a chance to see how the food was being prepared - an excellent, fun experience. Our waiter was superb, very genuine, helpful and honest about the wines and each of the dishes! Definitely on the list of top Cleveland restaurants.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWish i could remember serversWish i could remember servers name but he was great and was very knowledgeable about the menu. Pleasent surprise to find out they only use local and healthy ingrediants.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the best meal IWe enjoyed the best meal I ever had at greenhouse Tavern on Saturday! We sat downstairs in the kitchen at the counter. We had the four course tasting menu it was a great deal and fantastic. We started with the devils on horseback followed up with the beet soup and winter carrots my wife had the pasta and I had the 40 date aged steak. I normally don't eat desser, but we split the caramel popcorn Brulé. Our server Jody was attentive and friendly. The food was so good I was actually giggling with glee at many of the tastes. The kitchen also gave us a taste of the shrimp risotto which was unbelievable. Once again it was the best meal I've ever had at a restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Tasting MenuWe were sat downstairs at one of the chef's tables. It was a bit hot temperature wise being so close to the kitchen but a great atmosphere. This is definately not a place for a quiet dinner no matter where you are sat in the restaurant. I was with a group of friends so this was not an issue for us. The tasting menu, which most of our party ordered, was economical and phenomenal in taste.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for a pre theaterWe went for a pre theater dinner. I had the spring pasta dish and it was absolutely delicious. My fellow diners loved their salmon- they said it was cooked perfectly. The meals and especially the desserts were innovative, but fun. Would recommend to anyone who loves locally sourced foods.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING!!The Greenhouse Tavern is one of my favorite restaurants in downtown Cleveland. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone! The food, service and ambiance are all wonderful and they just all make for a great dining experience. I have to say that if you go here, you must get the wings, they are the BEST around and no this place is not a wing joint, but they are truly the BEST! However, to be fair all the food that I have had there is absolutely wonderful!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time i've been there.First time i've been there. Thought it was excellent. Lamb Burger was very good.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLunch menu is as good as dinner.Lunch menu is as good as dinner. Had the chicken wings, soup of the day, Monte Cristo, and lamb burger. All were outstanding. Had a great time there for opening day and can't to go again before a game.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Accent is on Awesome!Scott and Brenda Kim have put their all into Accent. The vibe is fresh and hot and vibrant. Very urban. The food, oh the food: is a kaleidoscope of taste, spice, sweet and sour, asian and not. Accent has two special ovens that bring foods to new levels of yum; they caramelize everything from mushrooms to marshmallows ( not to be missed). We have to fight ourselves not to order things we have ordered before because there is too much to experience. Be adventuresome or not, you will love Accent.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals we haveOne of the best meals we have had in a long time. The food was delicious and creative. The service was lovely and the atmosphere was fun. We will be back and be reccomending this restaurant.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMNo complaints. We were intNo complaints.

He also made some great recomendations.
I have been there 4X now and have never been dissapointed.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTried the Fifth Quarter appetizerTried the Fifth Quarter appetizer which was a Bolognese-style pasta dish that was excellent and had the clams for the first time -- also great.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBest on 4th Street! Watch out SymonWas thoroughly impressed with the thought put into the menu and specialty drink concoctions. The food, libations and service were excellent - and lived upto reputation. Great job Greenhouse Tavern!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMStarted with the very tastyStarted with the very tasty crispy broccoli (First) and moved on to the Ohio black walnut soup & foie gras steamed clams (Seconds). Nicely crusted salmon with the chefs garden winter root vegetable side left us in the 'clean plate club' (Thirds)... Finished our home run evening at the GHT with buttered popcorn pot de creme and a cup o' jeni's maple walnut brittle. Wonderful dinner for three!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food & great serviceVery good food & great service & atmosphere. Celebrated my husband's birthday here & will definitely be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find!I went on a Friday while visiting over Easter weekend with my wife and 12 year old son. We were seated at a table upstairs overlooking 4th Street so we got to people watch and eat at the same time. Our server was very knowledgable and accommodating. We were on somewhat of a tight timeline because we were on our way to another event. We got in and out in enough time to enjoy a great meal and make it to our event on time. This is one of those places you want to come back to as often as you can because the menu changes and everything on it looks great. I wish we had more time on this visit to enjoy more. I can't wait to get back so I experience more of the menu. The cocktails are all hand crafted and clearly designed by a true mixologist.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food in a Funky Fun SettingMy husband and I ate here on a stay in Cleveland to go to a concert. The place is quirky and fun, and the food and service were excellent. My husband had the foie gras steamed clams and the pan fried pork chop saltimbocca. He thought both were excellent. I tasted the pork and agreed. I had white asparagus salad with a cilantro-soy dressing and the spring pasta. I thought they were both excellent. We will definitely go back there the next time we are in Cleveland and will be sure to make reservations early.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI had mixed reviews aboutI had mixed reviews about the Greenhouse Tavern from friends, but I really enjoyed my first visit. Our server was very knowledgable about the menu and service was timely. I thought the confit chicken wings as a starter were amazing. I was also a little surprised when the roasted pig's head was the actual head of a pig on a platter! Regardless, the meal was well prepared, tasty, and plentiful. I would go back, but maybe wait a few months and see what changes they make to a limited menu. It was a little loud with several tables of the after work business crowd, but still had a romantic charm.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our third time toThis was our third time to Greenhouse. The last time I was not impressed. The 1,000 points was the reason we went back. Our waiter Adam P. was outstanding. He was knew his wines. The wine we picked was one we had tasted in Nappa. He expanded our view of this wine. Then came the food. My wife had the Market Fish and I had the Steak. Both were outstanding. She said it was the best she had ever eaten. My steak was fantastic. We will be back often if the food and service remains the same.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSalty, savory and sweetOur service was excellent, we started with the fifth quarter of the day which was a pork hanger steak, known as the butchers cut because the butcher normally keeps this for themselves, it was served with a rainbow beet and carrot salad. This was the best pork I have ever tasted, it was very tender, flavorful and just the right amount of salty. Next we had a savory double decker rice and bean burger with aged cheddar, scrumptious down to the bun. We finished with the buttered popcorn pot de creme with caramel and sea salt for the sweet treat, you need to try this and ask for crumbled bacon on top. Have been here quite a few times and will return over and over again.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMI always appreciate that thereI always appreciate that there is a prined, gluten-free menu available and the waitstaff is attentive to my dietary restrictions. The food is fresh and nicely presented and the staff is efficient plus friendly.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe talents of Chef JonathanThe talents of Chef Jonathan Sawyer are amazing! Every thing we ate was delicious, with complex and interesting layers of flavors, colors and textures. A big YUM!!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThe staff was amazing. TheyThe staff was amazing. They knew the menu and drink list perfectly. They were also very accomadating for allergies and were willing to modify entrees for us. Food was more than amazing. I would reccomened this place to anyone.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreenhouse for LunchThe Greenhouse has an eclectic interior with views of real retro bikes and lots of wood walls and counters. The menu is fresh and fantastic with lighter food notes as well as comfort food. All food is done with style and flair and is delicious. The service is excellent and you can do a 40-45 minute lunch with no problem (keep an eye open on Friday, however).3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMenu was clear but not manyMenu was clear but not many options desert was excelent. Very noisy3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic dining experienceWanting a 'dining experience' with great-tasting food, this truly fit the bill. Only drawback was hard to hear the waitress over all the noise in room but loved the view. 3 of us ordered the Tasting Menu and loved it. However, don't leave all decisions to chef as 1 got steak in resturant known for its pork. The pig's head tasted absoltuely marvelous (though fatty). Devil on Horseback good. Wanted to lick the bowl of the Foie Gras Steamed Clams. Desserts were wonderful including the cheese board. Want to go back and try more things. Highly recommend.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMwe had great service ! thewe had great service ! the food was so tasty. would definitely go back again.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM4 courses of culinary heaven!I only had an hour to savor the 4 course tasting menu, (which is a great value) but Kelly put me at ease and oversaw the perfect rhythm of delicious food delivery. The food is exquisite, beautifully presented and great care has been taken by the owners to source fresh, local ingredients. Bravo!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had an awesome experienceWe had an awesome experience overall, but our waiter was the best!3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot for a date :)My boyfriend and I went to Greenhouse for our anniversary, and it was awesome! What first attracted me was that their menu has Paleo options - the chef's tasting menu (4 courses, $44, you get to choose the courses) is advertised on the menu as having Paleo, vegan, vegetarian, etc. options. I have not seen Paleo advertised anywhere else, and it made me so excited! I didn't quite stick to a Paleo meal (can you say Animal Frites?), but I'll be back to do that soon. I was also impressed by not only their wine, beer, and cocktail menus, but by their extensive selection of unique nonalcoholic beverages. My boyfriend doesn't drink alcohol or soda, so he is usually limited in his drink choices. Not at Greenhouse! So happy we finally tried this!3/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
