The restaurant is fine, the food tastes good and the service is quite fast. I was just surprised that the restaurant only accepts cash, money order or certified check. I'm not sure if that is the policy everyday or just on the night that we ate there which happened to be on Jan 1st. I don't normally carry cash with me and of course, I don't have a certified check or money order handy. Good thing, that I have some cash in my wallet or we won't be able to pay for the meal and one of us have to go outside and take cash from an ATM. If this is their policy, they should say so on their website, or on Yelp so that customers are ready. Otherwise, the experience was overall good.

I hadn’t been to Greenhouse Cafe in about two year (don’t know why!). We went with family... 8 of us. The server was lovely and she was knowledgeable. I had forgotten about their prix fixe dinner. $42 pp. Amazing what selections were included such as twin lobster tails, surf and turf, strip steak, rack of lamb, fish, etc., and great apps, including shrimp cocktail! This included dessert and coffee or tea. The room was noisy, and while it was their back room facing the garden, the acoustics were poor. No biggie! We were there for hours, enjoying espresso and cappuccino (not on the prix fixe) with bottles of Sambuca and Annisette on the table. They offer a wonderful brunch on weekends. There is a band on Saturday nights and a full bar, as well. Valet service is also available. We can’t wait to go back! I highly recommended this lovely restaurant!

I had a great time at the Greenhouse Cafe. The atmosphere was wonderful and the greenhouse dining area was unique. There was a view of the greenhouse from large windows anywhere in the restaurant. I took my boyfriend there for brunch and the price is hard to beat for three courses and bottomless beverages in Brooklyn, NY. The only downside to our experience was that we had to wait longer than usual for refills on our beverages. We had to flag down another server to get our drinks.

Even though it was Thanksgiving,the wait for our reserved table was only 10 minutes. Long enough to clean off table,reset and sweep floor around table. Host was amiable,waiter was wonderful,preset holiday menu offered 14 choices. Plenty to pick from for all tastes and the price was very comprable to other restaurants with much small selection choices. Everything was frsh,well prepared and plentiful. No-one was rushed. We were there for almost three hours,enjoying ambiance,food,drnks,dessert and coffee. I would go back in a heartbeat that's how good it was!!

So this year for restaurant week I chose not to go into Manhattan, but instead pick a place closer to home in Brooklyn. The choice was to try Greenhouse Cafe. Easily located and a very extensive menu to choose from. To start I had the baked clams, which were the best I have ever eaten. My dinner companion had the fried calamari and it too, was wonderful. Followed by an entree of surf and turf (lobster tail and filet mignon) for both of us. Both perfectly cooked and wonderful. Cheesecake for dessert was outstanding. I would highly recommend this neighborhood gem. The service and the ambiance were both incredible as well. I will be back.

I went here for my mother's birthday. The waiter was really good with my brother who had special needs. The food came in a timely fashion and they had a great selection. The karaoke was great. I ordered steak, it was cooked in the way I like, and properly seasoned. Would recommend to others. Would go again.

BEST BRUNCH IN NEW YORK - like best in the whole city, not just Bay Ridge or Brooklyn. Brunch is $26 for soup or salad, an entree (all entrees, no added $ for steak or salmon), dessert AND unlimited Mimosa or Bloody Mary!

Greenhouse Cafe is Always Great! Amazing Brunch for quality and price. The staff is attentive and nice. The food is delicious, the portions are good, the staff is happy to pack-up leftovers to go, and they are very very generous with the unlimited cocktail refills.

Also worth noting is how accommodating Greenhouse Cafe is with people with disabilities.

I recently went to Brunch at Greenhouse Cafe and it was a nice atmosphere. The service was great, the waitress and staff were very attentive. The food was good. However, the utensils need some polishing of some sort. A spoon of mine was dirty and I had asked for a new one. But overall, nice place and would go back.
