The Greenhouse Bistro & Venue
We’re committed to sourcing food that is local, sustainable, organic, and naturally grown/raised whenever possible. We have our own garden which supplements the local produce we pickup several times per week.
Our menu includes many gluten-free options, dairy-free, organic and we're happy to accommodate people with other dietary restrictions. Please let us know when making your reservation.
This is a delightful change from the typical restaurant, fresh food that is cooked differently than fried. Very nice setting and a good place to go and be able to converse. Will certainly go back.
Good food. Fresh , well prepared inventive. A very welcome exception to the usual restaurants.
Great food, great atmosphere. Most enjoyable time with our friends. Recommend to all. Their Sunday brunch is quite good.
I absolutely love everything about this place! Can't wait to go back. Banana cheesecake was out of this world. Shrimp Scampi was the best I've ever eaten. The staff was warm and friendly and very professional.
Love the ambiance!
Recently changed ownership. Everything we liked about the former Green House was lost. I hope the new owner gets his feet on the ground.
First time visit for 4 friends out for a celebration. We all absolutely loved this restaurant. They did everything right from A-to-Z. The atmosphere, the service, and especially the food were fantastic! The food was fresh and high quality, even the presentation was great. There was even great background music. We can’t wait to go back. There was a great variety on the menu. What a treasure in Citrus County. It’s definitely worth a drive from anywhere.
Filet was amazing. Strong drinks!
We have all had that time when we took visiting friends to a wonderful establishment - only to find that the menu has changed and they are no longer able to easily accommodate special needs diets. A chicken dish was served missing the chicken, the dairy-free customer was served buttered gluten free bread with his meal (the one that was missing the chicken), and not one thing was outstanding.
Staff is very friendly and welcoming.... food is consistently good; the service as well. Lots of interesting specials to choose from.... Definitely the place to go in the neighborhood.
I love the greenhouse Bistro. I have been there a few times.
Been to the Greenhouse numerous times but this was our first trip since it changed ownership. Happy to say all's well .... Food was exceptional.... service was excellent.... met the new owner who was personable and enthusiastic about his plans for the restaurant.... sounds exciting... hope it all goes smoothly.... we look forward to many more dinners there as do our friends.
Our group of ladies goes to a new restaurant every month. This was a delight and the food and service were extremely awesome. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening!
The atmosphere is very pretty and pleasing. The appetizers were delicious and drink were good. The meals were very mediocre and too expensive for the quality and presentation
I like the new management. The waitress was prompt and courteous. The food was good and the restaurant has a "good feel" to it.
Enjoyed another great meal at The Greenhouse Bistro. They never disappoint.
This is a special GEM to find in rural area right off a main road. The food was delish and owner very warm,friendly and inviting.
Service was the best and very cozy surroundings.....lots of organic and gluten free items, wild game and even their salad dressings are home made. Desert chocolate cake Yummy! We had a wonderful time, folks in visiting from Texas. We will bringing all our guests here!
The food was amazing! Got to try Camel, and really enjoyed it :) The decor is fun, the low music is nice and relaxing, the staff is knowledgeable about the menu. The owner was really nice and spent some time talking with us when he seated us. I love that there are all types of foods to meet dietary restrictions/allergies. It’s all natural, organic, local...some really interesting and unique dining options that aren’t offered anywhere else nearby! A really enjoyable experience, with very reasonable prices for the type of food and portion size offered. Will definitely be dining there again! Can’t wait to try their Sunday Brunch!
Although the food was very good, I ordered a “ shepherds pie” with sweet potatoes on top instead of mashed. When it came it had big strips of peppers, mushrooms and black beans in it along with the lamb. That is not shepherds pie that I have ever seen or eaten. There are no black beans or mushrooms & peppers in there. So I can’t eat those things I had to order the grouper which was very good. There was no description on menu what was in the pie. When we received the bill we were charged for the shepherds pie. This is not a cheap meal. I would have thought we should at least get a discounted price. After all that was not shepherds pie it was a casserole.
Loved it! Food was outstanding! Will be back❤️👍
Great restaurant for special occasions when family and friends are in town. Somewhat pricey for every day occasions. They always offer a unique main course and on our night it was Elk. We passed and had selections off the menu. Owner and Chef change menu a bit each time we have gone. I totally recommend this restaurant and look forward to returning.
First time to visit here. Trying to eat healthier and this place is perfect for that. Great variety on the menu. Can’t wait to go back for a wild game special one night. The butterfly room is really relaxing. The owner and staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.
The area in which we were seated was very noisy. The waitress was inattentive. Our entrees were served before we finished our salads. Will not be in any hurry to go back.
This is not our first time here. I wanted to celebrate my husband's birthday with friends and this was the perfect place. We had a great time. The food, wine and spirits were fantastic. I eat Whole 30 and a friend eats plant base and they had choices for all. Everyone from the staff to the owner are lovely. Can't wait to come back.
Highly recommend. All six diners thoroughly enjoyed our evening out together.
Delicious vegan food. Wonderful service. Definitely going again when back that way.
We took our grandkids for their 2nd wedding anniversary, along with their 5 month old son, hoping that the Bistro would be up to the task of a very young child. We didn't have to worry at all - their child-friendly high chairs were perfect for Parker, and our fantastic waitress, Jodi, couldn't have been nicer and more accommodating. Everything was perfect, from the cheeseboard appetizer to Brittni's delicious desert drink. Parker really enjoyed walking around with his great-grandpa and looking at the butterfly garden and the industrial pipes in the ceiling! Thank you to everyone for making this a night to remember!
Took my vegan sister and her husband to dinner, I’m Gluten intolerant. Great place to satisfy all. Food is always fresh and delicious!!
This is a new nearby restaurant for us with good reviews. We agree with the 'positive' reviews already posted and cannot confirm the negative ones. We found the Greenhouse Bistro an enjoyable experience to put on our list of restaurants to frequent. A new restaurants for me I always order one of my favorite meals and in this case ordered the broiled Grouper. It was perfectly cooked, a good size dinner choice complimented with a New England Chowder appetizer, house salad and a garlic mashed potatoes with seasonal vegetable with the Grouper. Laurie, our server, provided an excellent review of the restaurant and the food choices which extended to proteins not found in many up scale restaurants, such as, ostrich, monkfish and pheasant. The other members of our party ordered seared scallops (also perfectly cooked); the Grouper (perfectly cooked); and, the rib eye steak (ordered rare but cooked medium rare). An additional star would have been awarded if the dinner napkins were not the tiny paper size; if the steak was cooked rare and not medium rare; and, the beer list included more of the popular brands.
We have been there a few times now and the experience is always fantastic. We are on our way to becoming regulars
Well, we have to say that we loved this restaurant the first few times we went there but the last few were disappointed. We went there for my husbands birthday. Most restaurants when you tell them it is a special occasion they recognize it. Nothing here. (The previous time we were there for an anniversary nothing recognized again. ) Also, the portions of food that two received were very small and just ok for the price. The veggies were overcooked. The waitress, who was also the bartender told us she is not a bartender but does the best she can with drinks. The sandwiches were ok, one sandwich the meat was overcooked. While it is a nice place and the food is ok, I don't think we will return as it again was nothIng special.
I took co-workers out for a special lunch on Administrative Professionals Day. This is my second visit and was glad I selected this for our lunch. They have an imaginative menu, with healthy options. Not a place to grab a quick business lunch, but it is good for special occasions. I just don't get the skeletons, though. If it was meant to be quirky, they overshot their mark to slightly unsettling. If you can get past that you'll really like the food, the service, and the atmosphere.
Always love going and having a great meal. awesome meal and great view.
I always enjoy coming here for lunch or dinner. Love the food and atmosphere. It's fun to come with the girls for a relaxing unrushed lunch. Some of the menu selections are a little pricey, but I don't eat here all the time, so it's affordable as a treat!
Our first time there was so wonderful that the following weekend we took friends there as well. The food is amazing, with gluten free and dairy free options. Organic, locally grown, free range - they have it all! The staff and owners are fantastic, the atmosphere is perfect.
I can't recommend this place highly enough.
Great food! Love the Spaghetti Squash! Best Chocolate Martini ever!! Nice to watch birds and butterflies in their indoor garden.
Have never been disappointed with the food! The butterfly attraction is a highlight of you eat on the porch!
2 of us were disappointed with our meal selection. The shrimp wrap was too dry as was the turkey sandwich. Both needed mayonnaise or something similar. One had the lamb loaf, which was delicious. We enjoyed watching the birds building a nest and billing and cooing.
We went to the restaurant for a family members birthday. Great experience! We loved the food and atmosphere was awesome. Didn’t have you think you were citrus county.
OUTSTANDING. Everything is always great. Food choices and preparation are fantastic. Cocktail and wine selection top notch. Service impeccable. I would recommend The Greenhouse to everyone
Just a wonderful Dining experience all around
Filet Mignon cooked perfectly and love the Greek dressing
