Outstanding. One of best dinning experiences we have had in some time. Brought my team in from all of the country for leadership offsite. We have been to the nicest restaurants throughout the U. S. This is by far one of the best. Chef and owner John Sawyer and team ensure the experience and food is a 10 out of 10.

Our server Alice was wonderful! We tried much more than we intended because of her suggestions and are so happy we did. We were in a party of 4 and tried two appetizers, the no name fries and the Brussels sprouts, and then all ordered different entrees to share. We finished it off with four desserts that did not disappoint (the popcorn custard dessert was to die for). This is definitely a restaurant to try new dishes at!

We got there at 5 on a Sat night. There were 6 of us - 3 of us ordered short ribs and we were informed they had already run out as that is a popular item on the menu - at 5??? Dessert was amazing. The bread plate was great but a bit too exotic for most at the table.

We hadn’t eaten all day plus we’re major foodies. So we ordered and shared eight different items. Everything was perfect. Truly. Textures, flavors, seasoning and salt levels were all spot on. We live two hours away but will, without a doubt, be coming back soon.

Loved that this place uses locally sourced foods and mainly non GMO with lots of gluten free, organic or vegan options so there is an option for everyone. I had the chicken wings, pork saltimbocca and the lemon dessert which were all phenomenal. My aunt and uncle got the 'popcorn' dessert and it was one of the most surprising and tasty thing in the world! Don't miss out on this place!

At a great location in the heart of the restaurant district of Cleveland, the service was friendly but disorganized at 5:30 on a Friday. The food was solid but overall disappointing, considering the talents of Chef Sawyer. Flavor and creativity were good, but each dish arrived lukewarm and plating was surprisingly sloppy. The beef tartare and chicken wings confit were my favorites, but the pork chop was overcooked and the bottom of burger bun was absolutely soaked in grease. Maybe I expected too much.

Wings were great. Beef burger was below average. Soggy bun and tasteless patty with hardly any flavor or texture. Fried chicken was also below average in taste and didn’t come with any sauce or anything. Presentation was not impressive at all, with the exception of dessert. No sauce with burger as well . Dessert was ok. Overall experience and food wasn’t great at all. Don’t see a reason to recommend this to anyone unless someone wants to eat wings only

Amazing service and food! This is my partner and my favorite place for a date and we have yet to have a less than perfect experience. Friendly, hard working waitstaff and a unique menu with creative and delicious options for everyone. We have gone when there was almost nobody there (around 3pm) and when it was packed (7pm) with absolutely no difference in service or hospitality. Even when there were no empty seats anywhere in the restaurant, we never had empty waters, but also never felt rushed or crowded. I can't speak highly enough for this place!
Definitely a unique atmosphere, very comfortable and just upscale enough for a special occasions as well as casual get-togethers/dates.

The service and food were excellent. Our server (Brittany, I believe) was attentive and remembered us from a prior visit. She was attentive to beverages and seemed to know the right times to come to get our orders, clear the table and offer dessert. I would recommend the place to anyone.

As usual the greenhouse tavern showed out with fantastic flavor for a double date with my brothers new crush! The decor is young and inviting and also not that we’ve ever had bad service but our server this time around was just extra friendly and informative I think his name was Alex (I’m terrible with names). This time around we had the clams as an appetizer and let me tell you, I have never had a better clam in my life! Their sauce is drinkable, seriously. We always make sure we get the Brussels sprouts, they are my brother and I’s favorite. We also tried the wings and just as promised they fall off the bones with just the right portion of lime flavor. My brother had the tobacco chicken at my recommendation and he was more than happy with his choice. We also came for a special menu on April 20th(same day... I know we are fatties) and had the chicken thigh black bean taco which was finger licking good, a pork schnitzel double down (it was like a schnitzels for bread and a bacon that’s almost like a prosciutto and a white Mac n cheese in the middle, and last but definitely not least a stoner sandwich desert... I cannot recommend that desert enough! It’s jaw dropping delicious. If you haven’t been lucky enough to try Johnathon Sawyers food I highly suggest you get yourself in there for the treat!! I am trying to get through the full menu and at this point after having had the pigs head and various other dishes I think it’s safe to say I will never have a bad meal from this place. Next on the list, the 2 lb lamb leg with all the gyro fixings you could think of :)
*also pictured the pig head dinner from our last visit

We enjoyed a wonderful meal before the Cavs game. Food recommendations from our server were excellent. The wings, lamb burger and rigatoni were outstanding. We enjoyed it and will definitely go back. The server was very janet knowledgeable and was very attentive. Oh and the popcorn custard was to die for. Homemade carmel sauce was perfect.

I rarely write reviews but this place was rough. Service was apathetic and uncomfortable. Food was small portions, even by American standards. I don’t mind spending good money for good food but this place simply takes your money and offers mediocrity.

We enjoyed the Greenhouse Tavern so much we brought a group of 10 back the next night. We are head over heels in love with the Chicken Wings and Brussel Sprouts. Chef Sawyer and team put out delicious food. The service was on point. Very friendly place to visit. Will definitely be back the next time we visit Cleveland.

SIT DOWNSTAIRS AND NOTE THAT MOST PEOPLE ORDER BURGERS
This restaurant has a foodie menu, and three very different eating areas. First, despite our reservation, we were offered a terrible table in the back corner, which we refused, and then walked by tons of empty tables in the restaurant proper. We were then put in the window, which I guess used to be a woolworths store window, looking out like zoo animals, horrible. Luckily, I went downstairs to the restrooms and discovered a row of seats and a communal dining table by the open kitchen. Luckily, they moved us there, where we enjoyed the better environment. Note though that this is not your usually foodie chefs table, you are surrounded by the standby boxes of produce and supplies, as well as the discarded shoes and backpacks of the staff on duty.
My friend ordered the only pork and shellfish free dish found, a pasta, which was too al dente and much too salty.
I ordered a strip steak which was expensive and just ok. The foodie fries were lukewarm.
We will not go back despite the entertaining view of the kitchen and a friendly server.

Arrived at the restaurant, gave OT reservation and they said they did not have it on record. Write note to OT with no response. Restaurant looked at us and said nothing they would do. Normally one of our favorite restaurants. This was an important night ultimately all screwed up.

Greenhouse could of cared less. Funny thing, in order to rate the restaurant this was a request from the OT system with the right date and time that the restaurant would not honor.

Oh well

The rumors are all correct. I've been told to visit Greenhouse Tavern forever and finally got around to doing it. Amazing food! Loved every course. The chicken wings melted in your mouth and had the perfect amount of spice. Each dish had such incredible flavors. Service was very casual but professional. Really friendly environment, would go back in a heartbeat.
