We go to the Greenhouse Tavern every time we're in Cleveland - the food is always wonderful and the services is great. If you have an extra $10, you can buy the kitchen staff a round of beers... which they love and is super fun!

We had a last minute reservation and the only seating available was at the Bar in the basement, which turned out to be the best surprise! We were seated right in front of the kitchen staff, and were able to see exactly how the food was prepared, which was super fun! They were playing music also, that was more fun and less fine dining which we enjoyed. It felt like a private event with the chef! The food was incredible and the seasonal drinks were fantastic! It was my first time at Greenhouse, and I will absolutely be back!

The service (Alice) was outstanding for a busy Friday night at 8:00pm. The small plates and appetizers were very good and with ability to mix and match for a table share was the best option. The wine selection was great but a bit on the pricey side and their cocktail list was a bit short. But with a full bar, you can order whatever you like. The beer and whiskey/bourbon list was extensive as well with a great selection of upper brands.
My only negative was the size of the main entrees. While selecting the seared duck breast sounded great and it did taste good, the portion left a lot to be desired for $34 (four small strips). The other entree was the special of the night "sea scallops" and again should have been bigger for the price paid.
$300 tab for 4 people.
Overall a good place and food and alcohol selection were very ample.
Give it a try and judge for yourself

The food, beer list and wine by the glass were all every good. The service was good. The atmosphere is nice and the location is great. My only disappointment is that I chose it because I was anxious to try the Vegan Barbecue. It is no longer on the menu but it's still listed online as being on the dinner menu. I felt a bit cheated. I just looked again and it's still listed even though our waiter told us that they were supposed to take it off the online menu. It's a nice place and I would consider going there again.

Everything was just ok, nothing special or spectacular, had heard folks rave about the place, maybe my expectations were too high going in ......... just not that impressed. Many other spots downtown that we would prefer.

Our server, Alice, was outstanding. She patiently took the time to walk us through the menu and offer suggestions along the way. The wings were some of the best we'd ever had! She helped us choose the perfect bottle of wine to complement our meals as well. We can't wait to come back to the Greenhouse again to enjoy the excellent service, food and dining experience!!!

I was greeted promptly upon my arrival. The staff were all very pleasant and my food was served in a timely manner. I was there to have dinner before my concert. I had the Strip steak and it was cooked perfectly. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a great experience.

Recommended by friends and it was no disappointment - outstandingly delicious! We had the pig head which was incredible. Not just the experience of it, but the flavor and tenderness made it standout. Well worth the slight wait (45 min) which can be filled with trying other smaller bites and good conversation. Don't miss the opportunity for this experience - well worth the visit

Greenhouse Tavern is our favorite restaurant in Cleveland. We travel to the city at least twice per year and each time we ensure we have enough time to dine at Greenhouse Tavern. The restaurant is a rustic gem. The tasting menu is a must. We have never been disappointed in anything we have had chosen to experience. It truly is a culinary adventure.

We have an almost 3, a 12 and a 26 year old. To be able to find a place that fits all of our needs is a phenomenal find. I must apologize to my server as she was hands down one of the best I’ve ever experienced, but I can’t recall her name (blonde hair about 5’5” - we sat at the far back round table - she ROCKS!!!)!

As always, Greenhouse was great. Only thing that I would note is that sitting upstairs (on the E. 4th side o for the building), feels a bit removed from the action. Food and service was A+.

Amanda was one of the best servers I have ever encountered. We had a large party and she was extremely attentive to our requests. She even went above and beyond by hand making a drink that was not on their menu to help a birthday celebration. The food was great as well, but the service made this restaurant amazing.

Food was good..nice to see a different kind of menu than the norm. Service was a bit slow as there was only one waitress for the whole outside patio that was full. No fault of hers though.. a scheduling issue. She was very attentive when able.
