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.

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 have a friend who needs gluten free food. We came for his birthday since you have so many gluten free choices, including 3 gluten free desserts. We sat in the garden room next to the area for the finches. Very enjoyable & delicious!

While the grouper was perfectly prepared, the accompaniments left something to be desired. Also, $30 for grouper seemed a bit high for this region.

With a reputation for some exotic game dishes, we were disappointed to find only one on the menu...an elk dish.

Our reservation was for 7:30 PM on Saturday. By that time , they were already out of flatbreads and both soups.

I am very thankful for their extensive gluten free menu options! I had a very creative GF flatbread with a cauliflower crust - terrific! Two of our party chose the fish of the day which was grouper ~ the cut was very generous and cooked to perfection. The only comment from the others in group that their food was bland.

This was our first visit to the Greenhouse Bistro, and it was not a disappointment. We were looking for a gluten-free menu that would offer a variety of excellent-tasting food. The food was indeed exceptional and the atmosphere pleasant and relaxing. We are looking forward to coming again.

I made a reservation here for our Christmas weekend. Our kids were joining us from Atlanta and we wanted healthy gluten free options. The food and the service were amazing. I asked for the "butterfly room" not knowing you don't see them at night. I will remember that for next time. But the main room is amazing in its decor and will definitely sit in there soon as well. Thanks for helping to make our Christmas Weekend Superb!

I really enjoy going there with friends and customers! Love their approach to use local and/or organic ingredients. The Menu focuses on what's fresh and in season. They also have a weekly wild game special. This time is was bison steak and it was delicious, cooked to perfection! My customer from Germany had bison for the first time and was amazed! They also have a great wine list, even by the glass, featuring organic or sustainable wineries.

This was my second visit at The Greenhouse Bistro & Market. Food was very good, as expected, but not as good as the first time. I had the Chicken Pesto Panini both visits. This time I think the panini was a little overdone. Tasty but a bit dry. Regardless, I'd order it again.

They add an 18% gratuity and fail to let people know. It was dark in there and the receipt was difficult to read. I unknowingly left a 35. Tip on a 60. Meal. Waiter failed to question. Shame on this place!!

We have been to this fine dining place several times. Every time we went there the food was excellent and the service was very very good. We did the North Pacific wine pairing dinner that was excellent and every single part of that tasting menu was fabulous. Will be going back here soon.

We were there on Saturday night they ran out of all vodka and most liquor in general and had run out of all the beef at a restaurant that advertises hand cut steaks needless to say a little disappointing

Excellent food and service. Very pricey but good size portions. Only complaint would be that we asked for bread with our soup and they did not have any. They brought croissinis (toast points) for us and when we got our bill we were charged for them. After spending 98.00 in food ( no alcohol ,1 iced tea, no desserts, 3 people for lunch) we thought that was a bit ridiculous.

Was disappointed. Trout was bland, prime rib was rare and they wouldn't make it different. Salads might be better. Too pricey.
