Outstanding restaurant with great food. Only minor complaint is that it was slightly warm in there. Other than that, it was an amazing experience.

The food is consistently excellent and this time the service was as good.
The room is still battling with the architectural restraints of noise and it was too hot. But the food is so delicious we forgot about it.

I had the chicken because im cheap and it was such an outstanding choice. The crispiness of the skin, juiciness of the meat, and seasoning all came together to be an amazing meal! The drink menu delivered on the beer and cocktail fronts with great local selections and outstanding in-house creations. Greg was a great host for our evening and provided great insight into our food and drink choices and brought a huge smile and tons of hospitality with every visit. We went because the owner was on Top Chef...we will be back because the restaurant delivered on all fronts!!!

We had the best time for a dinner celebration at Greenleaf restaurant. The staff was sweetly accommodating when we had to change the number of people in our party - twice.
From the moment we arrived at the restaurant until we left - it was
Magical. The restaurant had big windows and a modern vibe that was sophisticated but still warm and inviting. There are cool photos giving homage to the history of the area on the wall.
From the appetizers that came to our table - to main plates and incredible desserts -we were transported into the land of “how it should be when you go to a high end restaurant with an Amazing talented Chef” - Chris Viaud. Superb!
I have literally never had root vegetables taste so good. The salmon, steak and two pasta dishes for our party were all a hit. The presentation of every dish was unique. The appetizers included spring greens and crispy asparagus. The octopus was fresh and cooked to perfection.
The s’more dessert was the way you wished your s’mores tasted around the fire. Everyone in our party had a lot of fun trying a bit of each of the tasty desserts. Go to Greenleaf restaurant. Bring some friends and try a lot of different dishes to share.

The staff are all very friendly and considerate. They were very conscientious of patrons needs for food allergies and sensitivities. This is very important for those with Celiac disease to take into consideration when choosing a place to dine at.

Certainly an interesting and inspired menu, suited to those who like eclectic food, have lots of time for a leisurely meal, and who enjoy a lively/echoing ambiance. It didn't quite live up to the hype for us, although the homemade rolls were heavenly. Will probably make other choices for this type of meal in the future though...LaBelle and BVI do it better and their ambiance is nicer for conversation. Overall a decent place, and hope it does well for those who enjoy it.

Outstanding restaurant! I was expecting to be wowed after watching TopChef Portland but Chef Chris blew away even that expectation. The octopus starter had so much flavor and the Cod was probably the best piece of fish I’ve ever had. Service was super and we can’t wait to go back.

Greenleaf was wonderful for my partner and I. The food was amazing, the establishment was modern and clean. We had the Parker rolls for appetizer, cod and duck duo for dinner and the key lime and cream puff for dessert. All of them were delicious!

This is going to be our go-to place and they should expect to see us every season. It was also wonderful to support a Black-owned business.

Highly recommend.

The spring carbonara was excellent! We were not impressed with the desserts, but the mains and the appetizers were delicious and the service was attentive as well. They do tell you when you sit there is a 90 minute limit, which was a little off-putting, but we weren't there over 90 minutes anyway.

Overall it was a good experience. However I was disappointed with my entre. A very dry and just warm ,when served, pork loin. I think the chef needed to use a gentler hand when cooking the pork. My wife enjoyed her cod and it was cooked perfectly.

This was the nicest dinner we’ve had since before Covid, it’s local, it’s delicious, beautifully plated and garnished, served by a cheerful server. We sat at a great table, right in front of the extremely organized crew of chefs who worked together like a well orchestrated kitchen ballet. Our server was a smiley, knowledgeable guide to the offerings in the menu.
The noise level was reasonable given the neighborhood atmosphere, the regulars and the buoyancy of spirits recently released from the confines of the pandemic and the sudden break in the recent rains. Several folks opted to eat outside but the dining room was pretty well occupied.
The menu is varied and my vegan daughter would not be solely relegated to eating just salad which is too often in case in many restaurants still.
The food itself was delicious, inventively prepared with many locally sourced ingredients. The preparation and presentation is thoughtful and artistic. If you eat with your eyes, be ready to feast.
The wine list is short and affordable.
It’s a little pricey but worth it if your aim is to have a memorable dinner in a pleasant atmosphere with great service.

The pluses were the food and the wine. The take aways were being seated in the far corner of the house with very poor ventilation and an overbearing wait staff. Pricing of cocktails and small plates seemed high based on local standards.

Greenleaf was nice …we went there to try some new dishes and different food. We were happy with some of our choices. We did not connect with our server. She did not offer any information or recommendations about the dishes. We saw other servers more engaged with their customers. We asked about the small plates and how many would be served. We received what we felt was a sarcastic response. They were out of some items and did not offer specials right away. We had the tagliatelle and felt the pancetta was over cooked and minimal. My wife and I had the same dish but some different ingredients. We were really excited about going but the trip home was more about what we didn’t like versus “when will we go back”. Maybe we will try again someday…
