Located in the heart of Cleveland's popular Ohio City neighborhood, Crop Bistro & Bar has restored the grandure of the once United Bank Building built in 1924 by the famed architects that designed Severence Hall (home of the Cleveland Orchestra), Cleveland Public Library and the downtown Federal Bank Building. It's 35-foot coffered ceilings and original mural depicting the historic West Side Market has grown into one of the city's most innovative restaurants, featuring a distinctive menu of inventive American cuisine, built upon foundations of freshness, flavor and whimsy.

Crop Bistro & Bar is also home to several awe-inspiring event venues. Whether you prefer the soaring ceilings of our main dining room; the historic, industrial elegance of the Vault; or the ultra- modern Skylight Penthouse showcasing Cleveland's most spectacular skyline view, our experienced team can help you create a memorable event.

Crop Bistro is located in a beautiful venue. I think it's an old bank building. By that same token, the acoustics can catch you off guard--lots of echo even if not too many people are there. Aside from the volume, it's a great dinner spot. I'd recommend going there when it's still bright outside to get a better glimpse of the view. The cocktail drinks were fantastic and flavorful and we tried quite a few including The Figgy and the Last Word. The food was very tasty. We had the Smoked Cauliflower Arancini. It was delicious. We also had the Prime Short Rib which was so soft and barely tasted like red-meat. It was amazing. The steak au poivre was equally good--More meaty in flavor. For my taste the food was generally on the salty side but otherwise a great experience for our Cleveland visit. Highly recommend.

I’ve never had a better brunch buffet in my life. We’ve all experienced “buffet food,” that looks beautiful but tastes like garbage. This is different. Everything was perfectly hot or cold, nothing was mushy or crusty in a bad way. The fruit tasted the way fruit is meant to taste - not like most salad bars/buffets where fruit tastes like it was picked 6 days too early, 5,000 miles away. The cold bar was a dream with the best shrimp cocktail, crab legs, and a zesty seafood salad. I’m a pescatarian, and there were countless options for me. The desserts and pastries were a dream. Gorgeous venue with plenty of parking options nearby. Our server wasn’t very attentive, but with a buffet, it wasn’t a huge deal. Can’t wait to come back.

My first time at Crop was a very good experience, overall. The food was excellent and service was prompt an courteous. The only improvements needed are 1) the host should be attentive to persons entering the establishment, rather than being focused on her phone, and 2) the server should have an order pad that looks more professional. The little spiral-bound notebook looked messy and out-of-place for such a beautiful setting.

Food was excellent! Server was a bit abrupt. Beautiful space with HORRIBLE acoustics. My family of four went for a nice dinner out, but we couldn't hear one another talk, so it was just frustrating. The old bank space IS beautiful, but there must be a way to absorb some of the noise...otherwise I have to imagine this will be a short-lived restaurant.

Since you are across from west side market one of two items on the menu made exclusively from items from that days market would be very cool. We shop there once a month for week of meals made from their various local providers.

Sunday brunch was very disappointing. Buffet selection was limited and serving temperature was tolerable at best. Service was pleasant but confused and response to concerns about food temperature was met with excuses rather than any kind of accommodation. Not in any rush to go back.

We went to Crop for our 45th Wedding Anniversary. Right after we sat down, the restaurant lost power. Our waiter came over and informed us of this and we opted to stay. We ordered a cheese platter and a salad, along with drinks. The owner came over and chatted with us for a while. We were fortunate that the restaurant has large windows, so we had sufficient light. We were able to order what we wanted, and the food was delicious. Other than no lights, you would not know there was a problem. Our waiter, Juan, was wonderful. Overall, it was a wonderful anniversary and one that we will always remember. Problems happen and it all depends on how they are handled. Crop went above and beyond to make sure everyone who opted to stay had a memorable evening.

Absolutely phenomenal experience. Power was out and when everyone else in Ohio City closed down, the staff at Crop stepped up their game. Our server, James, was fantastic. Candles brought to the table and the chef still delivered a fabulous meal in the dark. We even got a tour of the amazing vault afterward. I have always loved Crop, but now it’s a must do for us on a regular basis and a definite when entertaining out of town guests.

I thought the food and service were outstanding, our waiters were very attentive and had just the right amount of involvement in our meal. I loved the Shrimp and Scallops and the rest of the family liked their selections also. I would recommend Crop to anyone looking for an elegant venue that is very comfortable and inviting. It was my first visit and I will definitely return and tell my friends.

Went to crop based on the high reviews of quite a few people, overlooking those that had given it poor reviews, thinking they must be too nit picky. Trust us and the other reviews when we say the service is terrible! We were one of two tables the whole time we were there and it took forever to get our food or for our waiter to even get back to us. Some of our food was good nothing exceptional, but my sister hated her dish. We will not be back.

I am in the industry and I usually have great things to say. Food was good, some of the meals were cold, and it wasn't even busy!!!
