From menu to décor, The Greene House is inspired by California. Dishes like the braised short rib with charred onion and the Atlantic salmon with horseradish vinaigrette are simple and sophisticated. Select from over 35 boutique California wines and a variety of California craft beers, in an atmosphere reminiscent of an airy, seaside cottage with ample outdoor patio seating. We’re eager to welcome you for lunch or dinner.

Great food, good for social events but it's a very loud and hard to hear people unless you are sitting next to them. The food was wonderful. Since we were there for an informal social meeting, it wasn't great for speaking to the group overall.

I made my reservation three weeks in advance of meeting friends coming in from out of town. I arrived first and the hostess sat me at a table when I arrived for my 5:30 reservation on time and told me she had a reservation for that table at 7:00pm and thought I should know. I have never been told that by a hostess - ever anywhere in the world. I asked if there was another table and she said no. I have been to the Greenhouse three times prior to this visit and always had very good food. Not this time. I ordered the shrimp pasta and it was not only tasteless, but had a large clump of linguine stuck together like a hockey puck and hard as a rock. Very disappointing. I won't be going back.

Dined with a friend for lunch. Both ordered salads. Hers was plentiful. Mine looked like an appetizer. Restaurant was very sparse but the hostess initially wanted to seat us in the back of the restaurant in a corner next to the kitchen. After we objected she sat us at another table near the center of the restaurant.

Food and bottle of Chardonnay we got was one of the best! So was our server. She was amazing!! Only minor issue was the hostess tried to sit us in a tiny corner next to little kids. So decided to sit at the bar instead. Sorry didn’t want to b seated next to babies on our date night.

The food we had was good (chicken pot stickers, yellowtail sashimi, grilled mahi mahi tacos and fish and chips) The fish and chip were good but, not great enough to order again. Everything was good but, the server did not have to keep coming over every 3-5 minutes asking if were ready. We were to enjoy our wine and conversation first. The server overall was good except she could have given us a little time in between checking since it was a full house.

Great food and service. The restaurant was very loud, it was difficult to talk. The taco meal was very small, it would have been helpful if the waitress had stated it was small and encouraged a side dish.

Was in Phoenix/Scottsdale on a biz trip. Went with a friend who lives in Phoenix. I had been here before and was pleased so I booked the restaurant right before a movie at the nearby Ipic Theater. Told the wait staff about my short time frame to eat before the movie and they got the food right out. Delicious as usual and great drinks! Definitely a recommend!

Very noisy. More cafeteria style seating than fine dining. Tables close together. Food unremarkable and overpriced. 17$ for 2 small tortillas portioned with a small amount of grilled mahi and a tablespoon of white bean salsa. Uninspired and boring.
No functioning woman’s bathroom on site. When it is working you have to walk outside the restaurant to a bathroom shared by North. This night bathroom was closed. When I spoke with staff, they commented “oh, yes. You need to walk down past Shake Shack and use the public bathroom there”. What???!! I will never be back nor will my 5 dining mates.

My wife and I have dined finely in a variety of Scottsdale establishment throughout many "snowbird" getaways. This last time out we experienced The Greene House for the first time, and we will definitely make of point of returning! It was an especially gratifying "late night find," as we were late for our 9:30 pm reservation having arrived fresh off a flight from Washington DC into Sky Harbor that rescheduled its landing a half hour later the day before! While enroute in our rental car we contacted the maitre d' to advise that we'd be late. She very graciously assured us we'd be seated even if we arrived after the official kitchen closing time @ 10:00 p.m. (we made it with 5 min to spare).

The ambience was soothing, the service prompt and friendly, and the meal (green house salad with scallops for me w/ a ginger mule, fresh mahi tacos and sangria for her, and chocolate mocha bars for both) was perfect late night fare: light yet deliciously satisfying.
