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.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Only my second time there, so I'm still trying things. Great salads. Don't miss the chicken wings--even if you think you aren't a fan of chicken wings.

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!!!)!

Food was over priced for the fact that every dish lacked basic skill and technique. Menu read really well but the execution wasn't there. Dishes lacked balance in flavor.

The 30.00 steak was cold and covered in brown gravy which tasted terrible.

The desert was great
The first time I was there it was fantastic

I’ll try again to make sure

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.

Food was very good. The duck and lamb burger we cooked to perfection. We did have an issue with the whole party not being served at the same time and one persons meal was missing ingredients. The manager made up for this by offering a 40% discount off our bill.

Everything was very nice. While not necessarily my tables favorite, our server was great. The bucatini was chewy, but the taste was amazing. We got a lamb burger to split, and it was amazing. Hic cups to be sure, but the tastes warrant a 2nd try.

My daughter picked the Greenhouse for an 18th birthday dinner. We ordered a variety of dishes to share. We enjoyed all of them. There was a nice selection of drinks. I tried the drink of the day with carrot and other juices. The food came out surprisingly fast. Our favorite dishes were the wings, a bucatoni dish and a zucchini corn small plate. The octopus was a little too smokey for some of our taste. The Tabasco chicken was good and the gravy fries might have been better if they were warm and fresher. The menu is changing soon and we look forward to returning. The only issue unfortunately was parking. I parked in the valet on 4th because my foot is broken. This was a mistake, one person was waiting for a car in front of us and it almost took as long as to get the car as dinner took. The Cavs were playing so there really weren't many options. We paid $25 to park. Thanks Greenhouse for a memorable 18th birthday dinner!

The Greenhouse Tavern is a delicious brunch spot. I had the chicken confit wings for an appetizer, the pastrami hash for my main course and the pecan porter for my drink. Everything was cooked to perfection and tasted great. I would highly recommend each dish. Our server was top notch too!

Good restaurant, bummer experience. We were offered an outdoor seat at a picnic table which seated 6. Was hesitant as there were 3 of us, but were assured by the hostess that no one else would be seated at our table. 20 minutes in, a waitress seated a young couple at our table. I told the waitress that we were told no one else would be seated with us. Of course this awkward convo happened in front of 2 perfectly nice people and we looked like the bad guys. The couple left the restaurant. The waitress acted as if we randomly objected to her seating them. I spend the rest of the meal feeling awful. Ruined it for me....

It wasn't my cup of tea. Guess I've become to prefer traditional fine dining. Maybe I'm too much of a Hyde Park, etc. eater. Simply too laid back for my tastes. Food was average and far from exceptional. Same for servers. I'm in my late 40s and after a long work week the last thing I want to hear is profanity from nearby guests and to be the best dressed in an outfit that is far from my best. Oh well, I tolerated a third visit for hubby's bday but we won't be returning now that Fred Flinstone is off the menu. Whew!

Unique food choices that really offers choices for a variety of tastes. Fried Brussel Spouts were excellent as was the Hay Grilled Octopus. My favorite was the Ricotta Gnudi and my guest favorite was Seared Lamb Loin. It was so good I took my guest back a second day right before a Tribe game for wings and other appetizers. I am from out of town and will remember the kind service, good beer selection and wonder food we enjoyed.

Thanks,
Jim

I was on business travels to Cleveland and took many of my associates to dinner at Greenhouse Tavern. Cleveland is not known for being a food town, but i really enjoyed our meal at Greenhouse Tavern. My guests had never been there and also were very happy with the food, service and ambiance. We will return on our next trip.

We arrived about 15 minutes before our reservation and they had no problem seating us then. We had a couple drinks which were awesome and the wings which were also amazing. We both ordered the strip steak for our entree mine gluten free and my husbands was regular. When they were served the server wasn’t sure which was which so we asked someone else and he said that the one without the aioli was gluten free. I asked another couple of times if he was sure since I have celiac and didn’t want to ruin the night with an attack. He said he was sure so we started eating and sure enough about 15 minutes in the attack started and I couldn’t finish my meal or drink so my husband did. Pretty unfortunate end to our date night.
