Went there for dinner for NBA Game 7 - ended up spending the whole evening - an evening I will forever remember. Koodos to Steven our waiter!

This place was cute and our waitress was very good. The food was terrible. I had the strip steak and everything on my plate was over salted to the point that I could not even eat it. I also ordered the fried broccoli salad which consisted of a bench of spinach leaves and 3 pieces of fried broccoli that was soaked in vinegar. My friend ordered the fried cauliflower and couldn't eat it either. She said it tasted like cardboard. We had to go somewhere else to eat after.

Great food and spectacular service! Our waiter knew the menu inside and out. My wife loved the bicycle decor. Will be back.

Inattentive service, decent food; hanger steak was a mediocre cut and was badly oversalted. Treated as though a $425 bottle of wine was Yellowtail. Waitstaff didn't get friendly until we were about to leave.

Loved our visit to greenhouse tavern! CJ was good, but a little soft-spoken on the loud patio. Wish Cleveland would outlaw smoking within a certain distance of eating establishments like Chicago. I enjoy outdoor dining, but as a non-smoker, smoke wafting in as I'm enjoying my meal is a turn off.

Complex flavor profiles wrapped around every day food. Known understandably for six or seven very good dishes (wings, full pig's head, hominy, to name a few). "Must visit" if you enjoy food.

Attractive ambiance and warm and attentive service. Inventive, eclectic menu. Dessert a highlight.
The chef is special, the food delicious and fun!
Rave reviews to the kitchen! Not so good to the server. The good: She was knowledgeable The Bad: Nonchalant, glib, unattentive, inefficient (I like casual, but with food this special, at least care!) Appetizer did not come until I reminded her after the entrees arrived. Had to ask three times for the ice tea refill

As I've reviewed before about this place...it always delivers. We are in Cleveland once a year and we always meet friends here for dinner and they never disappoint. This last visit, for the first time in 6yrs there was a minor hiccup and they more than over compensated to fix. A true standup establishment with the consumer always in mind...Great Job and as always, we look forward to our trip to Cleveland each year and our foodie splurge at the Greenhouse.

I thought that portion size was on the small side. I order their new roasted broccoli salad topped with chicken. The salad was extremely small and the chicken has a lot of fat on it. Not appetizing at all. For the price of this salad they need to put more lettuce or broccoli on it.

The food was overly salty and im surprised the waiter didn't compensate in some way when we told him. We had a new batch of one of the dishes made but by the time they came out everyone was done eating. Definitely the exact opposite of the experience I had last time!

It was our first visit, though many had recommended Greenhouse Tavern to us. While a pricier dining option, the food was great (we got the pork chops, the lamb pasta and the cheesy poofs appetizer) and our server was very professional. Check out the rooftop bar if it's nice out!
restaurant was so loud we couldn't talk. Waiter wouldn't move us. Don't go on the second floor. Some dishes were good, some only fair. high priced.

Family gameday meal
Wonderful menu with many choices to satisfy all in the family. Everyone enjoyed the vibe and decor as well as the food. Service was fantastic. Available but not hovering to get us out. Will definitely return

We were seated in the basement where they have 6 seats overlooking the kitchen. It was a wonderful experience watching all the food being prepared.
The restaurant was about average! The food was better than average, the pork chop was ok, my wife loved the burger, the service was a little slow, I wanted to love this place so much because so many told me about it, but for me it was a let down. And to be fare to them many people told me about the famous chicken wings so i had very high expectations and I didn’t care for them, the bar I found shocking, my wife ordered a club soda and grape vodka and they didn’t have any flavored vodkas except one they made, are you kidding me, a bar with zero flavored vodkas! Great location, nice outside seating!
We have been here for numerous occasions… But this time there was just something different. We had lots of difficulty with their orders and things being presented in a less than desirable way and it was truly a disappointing experience.
Pig out on bbq pig head.
The appetizers are sensational, and the bbq'd pig head is out of this world.
management needs sit&think
staff needs to be reminded that everyone is not an old/return customer. Highlights of the menu where not shared and discovered only by overhearing another server. staff was not particularly attentive
Overall experience....excellent food and service. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

My kids informed me that I must go to this restaurant and they were correct! Wow! An explosion of flavors I have never experienced!!!! The Brussel sprouts are an absolute must as are the chicken wings. I can't wait to go back to try more! Put this place on your bucket list. Kevin our waiter was fabulous! Maurice our busboy was a delight. GO!!!!
My favorite restaurant!
I have eaten at Greenhouse dozens of times and I literally have never had anything I didn't love. It's expensive, sure, but so worth it. Even a pickier eater can't go wrong with anything on the menu. This is the one place that I don't care if a dish has an ingredient I don't usually like -- I know they can and will make it amazing!

We pass through Cleveland on our way to Oberlin twice a year and eat at the Greenhouse Taven every time. It's always good.

The Greenhouse retains a place as hardy, healthy locally sourced comfort food with a twist. Genius reinventions of things you've eaten your whole life -- the brussels sprouts had a tang, the (pimento) cheese poofs -- that make your mouth wish for more. Locally sourced red meat has a whole other flavor, even beyond the local high end steak places -- and the frites are crispy on the outside, moist on the inside. Cocktails are inventive. Again, emphasis on local or in-house ingredients. Whether you want it boozy, refreshing or flirty, they know how to mix a cocktail. Not to mention too many local craft beers on tap. The look is cozy industrial chic: nods to Cleveland's roots, but also that repurposing of old things as new. The flying bicycles evoke "ET" in the back of the restaurant. The paintings aren't quite outsider art, but they have a primitive boldness that grab your eyes. Truly, wonderful. And the popcorn pots du creme is singular: light, buttery, crunchy, odd, but yummy.

I thought the food was average. We were seated upstairs where the temperature was very hot. And the noise level was high, but rather than calling it energetic, I'd say it was distracting. We could not hear across the table. Sorry, but I would not recommend this restaurant
I would not return to this establishment. The best thing on the menu are the french fries, and they can be purchased much cheaper in other establishment. The steak was tough, and the pork belly was so salty it was inedible. The double decker veggie burger was like mush. Thank goodness Colossal Cupcake was open for desert. Was over priced!!

For all the hype I've heard for years of Greenhouse Tavern, I somehow never manged to get there until now. Everything was truly spectacular. The food fully foodie appropriate without being hipster pretentious, as many of these types of restaurants are. There were several items on the menu I wanted to order. Our server was very friendly and attentive. More than anything, I would point out the prices. I was surprised to see that the entrees (save for a few elite items) were not more expensive, and we all were more than shocked at the cost of the drinks. Beers that I'd be accustomed to spending $8-9 in a restaurant were $5-6. The bourbon I ordered I've often been charged $15-20 for and it was $8! Great to feel you're having a legit great meal and not getting ripped off for it! Can't wait to go back.
Had a couple of Apps
The Wings are legendary and lived up to every comment. I am not in or from Cleveland, but for work spend alot of time here. I can't wait to bring others to try. Just had a few small plates because it was myself. The wings again live up to all hype. I was lukewarm on the clam dish. Perhaps because I really, really like clams and really did not need anything to mask their flavors. Can't wait to to explore more small plates and the menu in depth. Was jealous of other tables who had 3-6 people and could share and explore. It was just me. But will take people here next time. Awesome place you have here Mr. Sawyer.
