Our waitress was super sweet! My moms chicken was raw in the middle, manager tried to explain its how they prepare it that causes it to look that way? Lol no, it was not cooked through. He was kind enough to take it off the bill. My sisters toast was burnt to a crisp. I honestly don’t think it was worth it. I don’t think the price reflects the quality of food we received.
This restaurant was not "exceptional". Food was mediocre with poor plate presentation. Service was okay.
Our experience was great! The brussel sprouts were very very good. Our server, Amanda was the wonderful. We will return.
Excellent lunch! The grilled brussels sprouts are AMAZING!! Would highly recommend!
Still a gem of a place after all of these years of Chef Sawyer establishing a culinary destination on East 4th Street.
Nothing exciting about the place. Food was good at best. Service was extremely slow not being busy. Server came back to the table maybe twice. Seems the quality of the food did not meet the higher than average price paid. A good chance I will not return.
I can’t stop talking about Greenhouse! The food there is AMAZING! Especially the chicken wings...fall off the bone! We would definitely recommend this place to anyone and will definitely be back!!!
The food was very good, I had scallops that were filling. My wife had the steak. Bourbon selection is dynamite. Our waiter was outstanding and very helpful in picking entree’s. The table was okay, would have preferred a lone table over sitting next to a larger group at the booth/chair wall but overall really great experience at one of my favorite spots in Cleveland!
Great food, service and atmosphere. Wish there were more Vegan choices. If I ordered the “veggie burger” vegan style it would have come with no bun and no sauce. Buzz kill. Good food for kids.
Second time we’ve been here while visiting Cleveland, so good the first time we had to come back. The tomahawk pork chop and the tomahawk steaks are amazing. Can’t go wrong wrong with anything on the menu.
The location is great, the decor was really nice, the bartender was very helpful, but they weren't busy at all and it took forever to just get our starter, then just as long for the dinner, and this was the first I have ever had to send a steak back, ordered medium and it came out raw in the middle not even rare I can handle that but when the middle is cold and uncooked I can't.
Interesting menu...appreciated the Gluten Free Options..HOWEVER we were there at 11 AM and they were out of Gluten Free Bread !!! Very disappointing. Whoever does the ordering blew it. Probably not going back.
Always delicious. Server was top notch. Will always come back.
Much too noisy. . Much too noisy. Loud loud loud. I do I need to use 15 words ?
Great food and very good service. One drawback is the noise level - difficult to carry on quieter conversations...
Very good food! We went with friends for the first time, we all enjoyed it!
Really loved our dining experience in fact we were going to go back for a second night that’s how good it was
The service was fantastic. My husband and I arrived late due to traffic and construction. They seated us right away and took our orders quickly since we were trying to make a show. The appetizers and entrees were excellent. The custard cake dessert was not as flavorful as expected. Overall great would go back again. Kudos to Andrea to get us out in time for our show even with dessert!!
Delicious food, amazing service and even great for vegetarians who are dining with their meat eating friends. Great location! Cool vibe.
We had an early dinner here after a Browns game. The brussel sprouts appetizer was great and the vegi burger was the best we've ever had.
I was disappointed this time. This is one of my favorite downtown restaurants, including an innovative brunch menu. There was nothing special this time. Eggs were over cooked and egg sandwich was dripping in pimento cheese spread. To top it off, ice tea was an outrageous $5.00. For that price, it should have been a mimosa, not flavored water. Will not be back soon.
Disappointing dinner, unfortunately. My veggie burger was an undercooked soggy mess, my husband’s walleye amazingly bland and unremarkable. Our waiter tried to be friendly but was inattentive and service was incredibly slow. We had an 8:15 reservation on a Saturday night; the place was about half full when we arrived. Elton John’s concert had just started and we figured the place has been packed with pre-concert diners and was now slowing down; but it slowed too much for us. Not worth the money!
The Greenhouse is on the Daily Meal top 101 restaurants for a reason.
Kevin was great waiter
Make sure you get the Brussel Sprouts and Fried Chicken as an appetizer to share. Then the Skirt Steak was the overall winner out of 10 dishes in our group!
We were sat on 2nd level in corner...way too loud and I am generally very tolerant of loudness but wow ...difficulty talking and hearing.
We were a group of four and ordered several small plates to share. Each was unique and yummy, with good presentation. We especially liked the beet dish and the clam dish. We had great service. Truly enjoy the ambience and noise level was acceptable, allowing us to easily converse.
Dinner was great as usual. Something must have gone wrong in the kitchen. We ordered our salads and entrees at the same time, we were heading to the Cav’s game. Our waiter was very nice, brought our salads and somehow disappeared. We waited almost 20 min before we caught him. He said there was a problem in the kitchen and our meals were delayed. The manager brought them with an apology. The food was great and the service was great, we just had some sort of a delay and we’re not sure why. Won’t stop me from going back as the food is always delicious.
I had salmon with a walnut crust, butternut squash rice, and roasted broccoli—yum. My furies had the veggie burger and salad. She enjoyed it. Looking for another excuse to go back for lunch.
This is the best restaurant in Cleveland, and it never fails. John was a fantastic server, and the food was amazing, as always.
Night out with my wife. Great food and service. I had the Nonna's Gravy and my wife has the Strip Steak, both were excellent. Had the chicken wings app on the suggestion of our waiter, they are truly the best.
We have visited here several times now, and once again the food and service were excellent. We are very lucky to have such quality restaurants in Northeast Ohio!
I have eaten here before and book a lot of business dinners on behalf of my company here as well. I have never had an adverse experience until this visit. My bucatini was served cold and my husbands fries were so salty he was unable to eat them. Must have been a bad night in the kitchen. Service was great as always.
Our server Kevin was amazing - friendly, attentive, responsive, funny ...
I strayed from my typical veggie burger and hit the fish. It was delicious!
We’ll be back.
Good meal only dampened by The waitstaff spilling a number of dishes behind our guest. On his jacket his shirt his neck. You apologized but 15% discount? ReAlly? It ruined our get together even though our guest was polite. The discount didn’t even cover the dry cleaning
Great Food! Loved the wings, clams, burgers, and buttered popped corn custard dessert!
Superb food quite possibly one of the best lunches i've ever had...the falafel bowl was so delicious i could eat it every day...fresh, flavorful, perfect portion...this place is simply exquisite
There was negative air pressure in the building and the kitchen air was being pulled into the dining room. Hence we smelled kitchen sewer gas during the meal, subtle but noticeable. This made being in the room uncomfortable and unpleasant.
Poor menu, limited selections, over-priced. Meal was under-cooked. Waited "forever" to get ketchup. Server did a great job...she was very friendly.
