The Greenhouse Tavern
One night in ClevelandWe had a small child with us and they were very accommodating. We had a memorable upscale dinner in a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMVery challenging menuDespite exciting items like pig's head three out of four people in our party ended up having steak. Short ribs, which I would have ordered, take 45 minutes to prepare, and I was warned that the portion is rather enormous (saw that at another table). (very expensive), Fancy names like "broccoli escabeche salad" had tasty bits of broccoli but not enough.Frites too garlicky. Popcorn custard desert was exotic.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFor the Adventurous!My husband and I LOVE Greenhouse Tavern!! We have taken many friends there and they always want to return!! Very creative. Best chicken wings anywhere!! Love the wine and bar selections. Staff is very knowledgable of everything on menus. My husband and I love to go to many restaurants In one evening and try various drink specialties and appetizers. We always end up at Greenhouse by end of night anxious for a good beer and smaller plate appetizer! Sitting at the bar is our favorite. Dining in is great too!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time and Lived Up To BillingGreenhouse Tavern was every bit as good as advertised. We are world travellers and Greenhouse Tavern was in our top 10 across the United States and world. We will go back again if downtown Cleveland. It is well worth it in every respect. I think that a restaurant that is hyped like the Greenhouse Tavern would have a hard time living up to the expectations of a wonderful restaurant. This only exceeded our expectations of a top quality restaurant. Go, you will not be disappointed.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMSpeechlessI took my wife there for her birthday and was unbelievable experience and amazing food! I cannot wait to go back! I do not eat seafood but always try with no luck. Wife got the Lake Erie smelt and it was very good! Can't wait to go back!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThank you Cleveland! Goodnight!I was down in Cleveland for a night on business and found the Greenhouse Tavern through reading some very positive online reviews. The place didn't disappoint! The vibe is very cool with a friendly welcome from the staff when arriving. Our server was a sweetheart and very knowledgeable. Myself and my colleague are big craft beer drinkers and she introduced us to some fantastic local brews. Then we come to the food which was absolutely top notch. I had smelts and braised meatball for an appetizer and the lamb burger for my main. Everything was perfect and I have my fingers crossed that we get this contract so I can come back to the Greenhouse Tavern as soon as possible.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThere's not a single plateThere's not a single plate I had that was even remotely bad.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe eat early, not becauseWe eat early, not because we are infinitely old, but because we like to hear our conversations with friends, so weekend nights we aim for 6:00, and it usually works that it is fairly quiet until sometime after 7 or 7:30. Same with the Greenhouse, but as we left, circa 7:45, indeed the noise level was loud. The food was really delicious, waitstaff lovely, gracious.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMunique menu items, everythingunique menu items, everything we had was excellent. The appetizer bread plate was a great start, perfect for sharing with a group of 4 or more. I am so happy to find location with excellent meat and vegatarian/vegan options.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPure AwesomenessOn the list of one of the best dinning experiences my wife and I have had downtown.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat NightOverall there's almost nothing that I can complain about the greenhouse Tavern itself. The menu is amazing, the food tasted wonderful, and the prices were fair. I highly recommend it as one of the best restaurants in Cleveland.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous dining!We were visiting friends in Cleveland and we've all been wanting to try The Greenhouse Tavern for a while, especially after reading about it in Food & Wine Magazine. We ordered Chicken Wings confit and it was absolutely divine! They were by far the best chicken wings I've ever eaten, EVER! We also had strip steak & frites - fantastic, the jus to pour over meat and fries was so tasty that I wish I could have it every day, even for breakfast. Our friends had double decker veggie burger (he said it was the best veggie burger he's ever had!) and a lamb burger - also yummy. Great service, too! I recommend this restaurant to everyone! Prices are nice. If you're a foodie, definitely GO to Greenhouse Tavern!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFun place for a celebration!We took our daughter out for her college graduation. Our server was personable, fun and took good care of us. We ordered way too much food, but have enjoyed the leftovers. Thanks for a great evening!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Dining ExperienceOpted for a 5:30PM reservation for 2. Quickly seated and decided on the chefs sampling menu. The food and service was fantastic from start to finish (get desert!). The server was extremely knowledgable about the food and the beer and provided just the right level of attention to our evening. We did not feel rushed at all. Will definitely be back.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner!We enjoyed the tasting menu and all the flavors it offered. The devil on horseback "first" was excellent and the smelts were fried perfectly. The rib steak was delicious on every bite and the foie gras clams came with a sauce you must try. A unique dining experience and a wonderful way to spend a Friday evening.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time diningThe quality of the food and the service were excellent. If you have room try the fries with cheese curds and gravy. You will not be disappointed. The portion sizes were a little large for me but the leftovers were great snacks. I will definitely return to try some of the other unique foods on the menu.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday dinnerThe atmosphere was very relaxed and I loved all the different art on the wall. The service was good, the server was able to answer questions about the menu. The food was phenomenal and I will definitely go back to try more items on the menu.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you have one meal in Cleveland.....this should be it. Creative, fun, delicious food. The Duck Zampone is epic. Gravy Frittes are a must.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMLove everything abt this restaurantWe were wandering downtown with friends from NYC when one of them said "I follow the chef/owner's wife on twitter!" we popped in for a "snack" which turned into two hours eating, drinking, and enjoying the rooftop bar afterward. The food was amazing - one of those restaurants where every bite is unique and wonderful. You have a difficult time choosing which is the best food on the table. Love the bar, too: interesting craft beer selection. Our friends were impressed, too, and they are foodies with NYC standards! Definitely our new favorite Cleveland restaurant.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBaseballA friend and I stopped for dinner before an Indians game, food and service was wonderful. Will go again when we have more time to enjoy.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreenhouse 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 AMThe place lives up to itsThe place lives up to its national reputation for carefully chosen, well-prepared food. The pairing of complementary flavors is especially good.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 AMBusiness dinnerHad a great dinner at the Greenhouse Tavern. Not an extensive menu, but that is a good thing - everything on the menu is very interesting and different. There were 5 of us and we all enjoyed our appetizers and main courses.
I had been to this restaurant about 18 months ago (without reservations, so we didnt have the best of tables) and remember really enjoying the food and vibe of the place. Highly recommended.5/8/2013 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. They were not half as good as last time we had them. Wonderful artisan Rum and coke. Great place to unwind and feed that culinary itch.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThey brought the food outThey brought the food out too fast.

Couple of items were very small serving size (others are quite large). Otherwise no complaints what-so-ever.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service were excellent.Food and service were excellent. It seemed a littles dark, but this could be due to coming in from outside where the sun was shining very brightly.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experience. GreenhouseGreat experience. Greenhouse Tavern has an incredible menu, with a surprising number of options for vegetarian and vegan diners. Give it a try.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDJA great place to try some new things. The service was great and they have an extensive wine and beer list with gluten free alcohol and food. The menu was fun and the taste had my taste buds asking for more. Will definitely go back!!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had reservations for twoWe had reservations for two for dinner and had a nice time. Service was helpful and attentive. Our waitress was able to answer questions about the menu - which did need some explanation. Our appetizers and both entrees were flavorful, if a little over salted. The atmosphere is tough to classify, as there are a couple of different seating areas - but tends to be casual/trendy and not quite as romantic as we might have hoped. Overall, a good experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved this place! ServiceLoved this place! Service was excellent and food was delicious! The Ohio Lamb Burger and fries were a tad on the salty side, but all in all a great experience at Greenhouse Tavern. 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 AMApril 15We went to celebrate my husband's 30th birthday. We were disappointed that the kitchen was out of several of the "big" dishes, so he settled on the Lamb Burger. I had the Steak Frites. Both were very good. We ordered a first and a second plate...the Crispy Hominy was like biting into a bunch of limes- the flavor was too strong and you couldn't enjoy the other parts of the dish. The Stuffed Seminola Pasta was quite delicious. Can't rave enough about the Buttered Popcorn Pot de Creme.
Overall very good food, but still disappointed that we couldn't get the Pig's Head or Short Ribs for the celebration.4/15/2013 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 AM
