    The restaurant closed a couple days before Valentine’s Day, when my reservation was for Valentine’s Day. This was a planned closure and they shouldn’t have been taking reservation. Left me without dinner plans on Valentine’s Day.

    Totally ruined our Valentine's day evening by going out of business prior to 2/16 like was reported. They could have said something like they were considering closing when they took the reservation. That customer service was less than Bush league. We have never been there and judging by this fiasco no wonder all the restaurants they open go out of business. Thanks for nothing !!!

    GHT announced earlier in the week that they’d be closing permanently, so we hurried to make a reservation to use a gift card we’d received for Christmas. We woke up on the day of our scheduled dinner to news reports that the restaurant had overestimated their final date and shuttered all operations the night before. That part is understandable. What is not (and the bigger shame) is that we had to find out on the news that we’d need new plans for dinner. There was no phone call, email, or any other notification to guests. The website and Facebook pages had disappeared. The phone line to the restaurant rang indefinitely, without even a simple courtesy recorded message. I’m annoyed; but if we’d driven the hour to dinner only to find locked doors and dark windows, I’d be livid. Shame on you, Chef Sawyer. The staff deserved far better than this, as do the diners who wanted to celebrate a local favorite one last time.

    Super disappointed. I’d heard so many great things and this place was absolute trash. The atmosphere was somewhere between aged IKEA and a vintage record store. The staff was basically everyone you wouldn’t want to see at a coffee shop. The service was slow and lackluster. And the food...ugh. My entree tasted like flat dog meat on top of chewy noodles. The burger “is kind of like a Swensons burger”, said the waitress. Turns out, it actually WAS except more expensive and less tasty. If this place wasn’t closing already, I’d never go back. Based on my experience, I know exactly why it’s shuttering the doors.

    The host and our server were both great and very attentive. Atmosphere was also enjoyable (eclectic & different from other restaurants in the area). Drinks were good, but it was by far the smallest martinis we have ever been served in a restaurant. Brussels sprouts were great, everything else was OK (burger, wings, pork and loaded fries). This place was recommended to me by a co-worker so I was eager to try and had high hopes. The food wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good enough to win me over and come back again. There are better options on East 4th to entertain for dinner before The Greenhouse Tavern. I won’t go back, but it was definitely worth a try.

    The Greenhouse Tavern has a great reputation and we have had excellent meals in the past, but this night was average at best. On a slow night, the service was slower, food came out warm, not hot and nothing was exceptional. Confit wings were dry as was the pork. Frites were the best part. Will be a while before we return. Maybe stick to the roasted pig head.

    Was surprised it was easy to get a reservation on short notice for a Saturday night Had a nice table on main floor beyond bar. Server was cordial and professional. Brought us at our request some bread which arrived slightly grilled and buttered. We shared the beet salad. Excellent I had the seesaw burger with frites Wonderful. Micro beer and martinis were delicious and well presented. The burger was so good I can’t remember what my wife had for an entree.

    Food was great. Lived up to the reputation for the most part. Service wasn’t at the high level expected. It was our first time so we had questions. After ordering we heard our server tell all the tables around us about the chef’s specials for the night, one of which we would’ve ordered. Wasn’t sure why we weren’t told the specials but other than that it was a fine experience. Beer selection was great as well.

    Food was fine, but disappointed they removed the Lamb Burger off of the menu. My husband and I both had the regular burger which was cooked well done (no choice in temperature since it's a thin patty. It was ok but not worth $16. Subbed out Brussel Sprouts instead of Frites and was uncharged $4 each burger (which we were not told ahead of time.). Probably won't be back since the Lamb burger was the main reason we went.

    I really wanted to love this place but was disappointed. The menu is limited and the food was very dry, We were told how good the wings were but ours had no sauce and no flavor at all on a few. The pork loin was average, but again, on the dry side. Drinks were average. We were very disappointed as it had been recommended highly to us. Will not be back.

    Went for the NYE tasting menu and sadly couldn’t be more disappointed. I lived in Cleveland for years and Greenhouse was one of my favorites, but the tasting menu was not at all representative of what I remember. Everything was cold, lacking flavor, and not paced properly.

    The menu had changed drastically from what we saw online and we were a little disappointed in the selections. We had wanted to share appetizers and most of our interests had disappeared. My beet salad was tasty but nothing spectacular. Rabbit ragout was underwhelming. A food runner also brought us another table’s food so the timing of the meal ended up being very off. I did enjoy the confit chicken wings, but we left feeling like we were a little duped.
