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.

The Greenhouse is the loveliest place in town for an elegant, civilized, quiet, delicious and unrushed brunch. The wait staff is attentive and skilled, the coffee is outstanding and frequently refreshed. The food is superb. I've been coming for Sunday brunch -- actually breakfast -- for years and have only had fine experiences.

Made reservations before hand and once we arrived were greeted and immediately brought to our table. Waiter came right over for drink orders and the entire staff at the time made sure we never went below half cup. Food came shortly after, from presentation to taste, very fine dining.

This was our first time at Greenhouse, and it definitely will be the place of choice from now on for brunch. We had asked for a quiet table, and we were given a lovely table by itself, under a skylight, separated from the other, noisier tables. The food was spectacular, and we could hold a sustained conversation without interruption from other guests or from our servers. Indeed, our servers were there when we needed them, but they were discreetly in the background when we didn't want to be disturbed. My husband and friend ordered chicken and waffles, which they said was tasty. My avocado toast was fabulous; in fact, there are lots of vegetarian choices on the menu.

The room and food were beautiful and excellent. Service was poor as staff did minimum and required constant direction. Drinks not refilled, staff not accessible to even ask for what was needed, etc.
The price was very high for what we had too. $12 for a small glass of orange juice that we were never offered a refill or asked if we wanted more. $7 for a tiny Coke, also not refilled or asked. These are just examples.

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.

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
