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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!
