We were so pleased to find this gem of spot. Great, creative food and drink, great service, all in a relaxed neighborhood environment. So glad to have such an upscale and accessible spot right down the road! Now we just need a seat at the bar for the Top Chef watch parties!

My wife and I both worked in hospitality in Denver and Portland before moving our family back to the east coast. We were blown away to find food of this quality here in n New Hampshire. Classic flavors, precise technique and a bit of fun. Greenleaf is superb.

Get there quick. A reservation is going to be hard to come by in a week or two. Gnocci and lobster salad were both fantastic. The cod and salmon were even better. Just a top chef doing what he does best.

Now my top two restaurants in this area. Birch on Elm and Greenleaf. The food was outstanding. Loved the duck confit appetizer. Presentation and ambience made the meal even better. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Perfect. We will be back.

Everything from the butter on the bread and the bread it's self, to the cup of coffee I had after desert was as locally sourced as it gets. Truly great food, pricey but worth it!

I had the cod as my entree, some of the best I've ever had.

Greenleaf never disappoints! The food, presentation and menu items are impeccable. Local farm to table. Service is always excellent. Faboulous wine list and fun cocktails. Beautiful bar seating if you prefer. We never seem to have any trouble parking. Definitely our favorite date night spot!

First time dining out since lockdown and it was so great to eat on the patio outside. Amazing food! The chef even let us do the pre fixe menu that they normally only do weekends. Lovely experience! Great service. Will be back again!

The decor and ambience in the restaurant were nice. However, we were surprised at the limited menu- there was a price -fixed five course meal , though you could purchase each item ala cart. There wasn't even a salad on the menu. We only had a choice of two entrees to choose from. The pork my husband ordered was good, just high priced for the portions. My mixed grain plate was very small with just a spoonful of grains and a spring of arugula. Overall, small portions, limited choices and pricey.

As always Greenleaf never disappoints. The food quality and presentation impeccable, the waitstaff fully attentive, the portion size perfect for a pre-fixe 5 course offering. This is truly our favorite local gourmet/foodie spot in the Amherst/New Boston/Milford area. We also love their bakery/sandwich shop, Culture in Milford!

The two most important things when dining out, the food and the service, were outstanding. The taste of the food was truly excellent, the only drawback was that you have only a couple bites per course to savor it. That would be fine if, at the end of the meal, you were satisfied. Unfortunately, I was still hungry when I left, and I’m not a large man. The waitstaff, most notably the bartender, are serious pro’s. It was truly a pleasure to be served by her, she even mixed us a custom cocktail based on our tastes. Increase the portions by maybe 25% and the sizable tab could be an occasional treat.

This was my first 5 course meal experience and the anticipation of each course was exciting and the presentation of each course was a work of art! It was by far the best meal I've ever had! The flavors were amazing and the restaurant was very clean and inviting. The only thing that could have improved was that it was very cold in the restaurant. Many people were wearing their winter jackets during their dinner. Not sure if they were having issues with the heat, it is a very large old building so I imagine it's a bear to heat. That being said, I still give it 5 stars!

This was our second time dining at Greenleaf. We chose to do the tasting menu and also chose to have the wine pairing as well. I am so glad we did. What an amazing menu with the most amazing food. What an art and talent by Chef Chris and his team. Well done. Looking forward to our next visit.

Food was great, wine pairing was done well. Waitress was friendly and efficient. We were not looking for a “fine dining” experience, white table clothes, explanation of food and wine, with that said, the quality of the food and wine, were as good or better than other places we have been that are considered fine dining. Will definitely go again.

Greenleaf created the perfect Valentine's day atmosphere with their impeccable cuisine, attentive staff and intimate atmosphere. The pre-set menu was masterfully orchestrated with elegant wine pairings. The meal hit all of the right notes in terms of flavor and texture. As always, an outstanding job done by Chef Vivaud and his staff!

My wife and I went for Valentine's Day prix fixe dinner and everything was superb. The waitstaff was upbeat and attentive, the wine and drink selection was imaginative and paired excellently with dinner. The chef accomodated our aversion to raw shellfish on his own and created a fabulous small plate on the fly - totally unexpected and greatly appreciated. Greenleaf met and surpassed our expectations! We look forward to coming back soon.

Greenleaf is a wonderful, unique, and innovative restaurant in an area where such gems are very hard to find.

My first experience came at random after my wife noticed the interesting street presence. Unexpectedly, we were served a NYC, Boston, or Chicago-level meal with such a unique treatment of chicken (Humbly and obscurely named "Crispy Skin Chicken") that I was almost completely hooked. But, having been disappointed too many times, I waited until our second visit, a couple of weeks later at the bar, where a perfectly sumtuous pumpkin risotto proved that the first experience was not a fluke.

In short, the chef is young and creative, with a hand for fine technique and a nose for fresh ingredients. Even the dessert courses have been enlightening. The service has been flawless, and the drinks are fun and in season.

I'm driving almost an hour to revisit this restaurant on a regular basis. If you are any closer, you are missing a very special meal that is well worth the trip.

Experience it before the word gets out and the wait for reservations stretches to weeks, because those days are coming.

Wow wow wow!!!! What an amazing dinner experience we had. We have been dying to try Greenleaf out and the opposite finally presented itself. It DID NOT DISAPPOINT!! This was hands down the best dinner/dessert we have had. We enjoyed the hand cut fries for an appetizer followed by pumpkin risotto and pan seared salmon, followed by the crème brûlée pictured below. We truly can not wait to go back and try the other options.

Terrible. We booked online and showed up, a man answered the door and said they were closed. We asked for take out. He said they’re closed for that also. This was a Saturday night at 5 PM. We hired a babysitter. No one even bothered to call us. Terrible way to run a business.

Hello Erika, My name is RIck Naples. I am the General Manager for Greenleaf. I wanted to touch base in regards to Saturday nights issue. We made the determination to close the restaurant due to the severe weather that was impacting the area that day/night. I personally called and texted anyone who had a reservation as well as posted on social media that we were closed. Im sorry for your inconvenience however with the restaurant being closed we were unable to process any orders.
