The Private Cellar, inspired by Jefferson’s passion for wine, will be the hotel’s private dining room, and its walls will be lined with wine display cabinets and private wine lockers. Beneath a soaring, plaster groin-vaulted ceiling, guests will have the opportunity to sample the culinary talents of our culinary team complemented by wines from the hotel’s impressive selection of more than 1,000 labels. A dumbwaiter, fashioned after Jefferson’s own at Monticello, will deliver vintages from the cellar to the table. At 297 square feet, the Private Cellar will accommodate 18.

I continue to appreciate The Jefferson Hotel's (and the Greenhouse's) ambience and high quality of food as well as impeccable service. It is always a pleasure to meet a friend or client there for lunch. The menu is sophisticated, but also flexible and recognizable. The dining room / environment allows patrons to have a relaxed conversation, which frankly is not common at many comparable venues.

Very beautiful hotel but ambience at the Greenhouse may be improved by playing background music. It was too quiet!

Overall a great experience! Already recommending to friends and family!

Food was very good service was attentive. Tables are very close so there is no private conversation. Given the prices, some breakfast pastries would have been nice. Cost for two for a very nice breakfast with tip is $100

A little pricey for lunch ($100) for two, but loved having a quiet place to catch up with an old friend.

We’ve been looking at reviews for this restaurant for quite a while and finally made reservations for a birthday lunch. With our reservation we requested a quiet table and were extremely pleased to be seated at a romantic table within a nook with only two tables, a wonderful full ceiling skylight and beautiful green plants. Absolutely perfect!

We both ordered the lobster wedge romaine salad, served with hot rolls. Prior to ordering we asked about how the lobster was served and were pleased to learn that it is served as lobster meat, NOT chopped up and mixed with mayonnaise. We were both pleasantly surprised at the amount of lobster served on the salad.

The romaine was cut unusually into “vertically” long strips. Served with a lemon vinaigrette. This salad was absolutely wonderful. Ate every last bit.

We both had a lovely Riesling. No room for dessert.

All of the wait staff were very professional, attentive – excellent service.

We will definitely return to the Greenhouse at the Jefferson Hotel.

The Greenhouse is a very elegant place to have Sunday brunch. Our friends, cosmopolitan world travelers, were quite impressed with the sunny, airy ambiance of the restaurant. The food presentation was great looking, and tasted equally good. In particular, the Belgian waffles were light and airy, paired with sweet tasting berries.
