The Greenhouse Tavern Ratings and Reviews

I would never come back. We went there to eat dinner with our family & go see the Christmas lights in the square. It was planned way ahead & my son choose it as he wanted to try the pig's head BBQ.
The best way I can describe the waiter is distant and smug. We ordered drinks & appetizers which were very good. When we went to order the BBQ the waiter then stated it would take one hour before it was served. Because this was why we came here we decided to put the order in & got another round of drinks and another appetizer.
After 90 minutes I motioned to the waiter to ask if the BBQ was close to ready. He did not come over but simply nodded yes. It was another 40 minutes before it arrived to table. There was no apology, no offer of bread or another appetizer, no consideration on the bill. The other entrees were very fatty and small.
By the time we left the stores were closed in Tower City.
Not a fan, not going back and would not recommend.

The brussel sprouts were AMAZING. Perfect for an app for two or a side with dinner. Lamb burger was great, well cooked & delicious. Steak was topped with delectable sauces and crispy onions. Say yes to coffee and desert.

This was our second time to greenhouse and it was great! My boyfriend and I agree this is our new favorite, despite the fact that we have no idea what one dish even was! It's great to be able to go to a restaurant and just trust that something new will be delicious. We had the wings (a must), something delicious with pork and charcoal (?!), eggplant meatballs and the apple spice cake with rosemary cream. Amazing!

Great experience every time we've dined here. Our server Kevin was very knowledgeable and offered great service from start to finish. Seasonal cocktail was fallish and delicious. Cheese poofs were amazing especially the remoulade sauce. Gnocchi with fried egg was to die for. The market halibut was pretty good, but a little dry. Overall 5 stars the whole way.

The restaurant was very full, but the staff was friendly, service was quick, and the food was wonderful. We thought we would get dinner, but after appetizers and salad, we were full. If I were local, I would come back and recommend it to my friends.

This was a great place for brunch. I would highly recommend the crispy confit chicken wings, they were fall off the bone delicious! The eggs Benedict, corn beef hash and sausage biscuit pasta were all great as well. We also loved the pastrie board. Will eat here again!

Hadn't been back here in a while and was really looking forward to it. Brussel sprout appetizer was good but with overpowering flavor. Chicken wings were overloaded with scallions, not hot enough (temp) and just overpowering with too much vinegar. Pork chop and lamb burger were fantastic. Biggest complaint was the ambience. We sat upstairs where is was WAY too dark. Granted, my eyes are 52 years old, but when you see phone flashlights being used at every table to read the menu, it's too dark. We also made the mistake of making a reservation 1 hr. prior to a home Cavs game. Bad decision if you're hoping to have a conversation as the restaurant noise was beyond sports bar level. I used to have Greenhouse on my special occasion eatery list, but it's gone SO casual for the $$. Hate to say it, but my wife and I were very underwhelmed overall, despite the top notch service.

Way too noisy. Some interesting food (carrot salad, gnocchi) and some unexpectedly boring (Tabasco Chicken). Waiter cleared our first course dumping the used silverware back onto the table from the plates. Overpriced for what we got.

We were really looking forward to celebrating my wife's birthday, but when her and my daughters meatloaf comes out cold, it kind of makes the evening a bit of a mess. Although new dishes were brought out, the other guests at table were practically done with their meals. We still had a good time but the paying full price for an all over the place meal.

The service was lacking. She brought out my soup together with my main lunch - it didn't all fit on our table and she just kind of shoved it all on. We had to repeatedly ask for re fills on our waters. Food was great as always.

We were pleased with everything, but the bar service. We waited a long time and eventually left to go get a drink pre-dinner. We were texted once our table was ready, which happened to be twenty minutes prior to our reservation and two minutes after we walked out the bar. The hostesses seemed extremely confused about who we were, even though we had seen them a few minutes prior when we stepped out to have our pre-dinner cocktails elsewhere.
Earlier that day, someone commented that every time he goes, it seems there's new staff that are kind of befuddled by everything. Though our server was good, the bar staff and the hostesses very evidently supported this review.
As always, Greenhouse Tavern does not di ...
As always, Greenhouse Tavern does not disappoint whether we're talking about selection of food and drink, service, variety of ingredients or any other category I could probably think of. It is an excellent place to go whether you're looking for appetizers, a meal or (as was the case this visit and probably most of our visits) sharing a bunch of appetizers to make a meal.
On this particular visit, the two of us shared five items from the firsts and seconds portion of the menu (generally the more appetizer-y items): fried Brussels sprouts, chicken wings confit, pommes frites, eggplant meatballs and potato cornichon. While they were all excellent, the new standouts were the sprouts and the meatballs: the sprouts for their amazing caramelization and being a new take on an underappreciated vegetable; and the meatballs for being a great way to use eggplant without slathering it with a bunch of sauce that masks its flavor. I've had the wings nearly every time I've been to GHT, and I don't really like chicken wings ordinarily. I don't hate them, but GHT's are the only ones I'll eat in public without hesitation. With the exception of the wings, everything was vegetarian friendly. With the further exception of the meatballs (which have a sheep's milk cheese), everything was vegan.
TL;DR: Go here.

Was in town with some friends for the Browns game and was looking for a place for dinner on the Saturday night. I had been a few years ago with some buddies. This time it was two couples. The four of us were definitely not disappointed.
There was something for everyone and all delicious. Services was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable and explained everything well.
We will be back.

We love the Greenhouse Tavern for its variety and creativity that suits all diets and appetites. The wait staff are some of the best. Kevin was particularly helpful and friendly on this visit. I don't think you can go wrong here.

We went to the greenhouse before an Indians game. Our server Josh was great and very knowledgeable of the menu. Service was fast and the food was great. Can't wait to go back. Definitely get the Brussels sprouts, wings and loaded fries.

When they first seated us, our table was way to close to the couple next. Fortunately, they left just as we sat down.
The food was good. I though the menu was confusing. I had no idea what "Firsts, seconds, " meant in terms of the amount of food you would get. The waitress tried to use circles with her hands to describe the amount.
A nice place. Not for me but very nice.

This restaurant is in the 4th Street area of Cleveland that full of restaurants. It is very understated and has a few levels of tables and a bar on the first floor. Our table was not ready when we arrived and we were happy to get a free round of drinks while we waited. We ordered the brussel sprouts app and also the chicken wings, we were not disappointed. The chicken wings were some of the best we have ever had. Very crispy and moist with a tart finish. The brussel sprouts were also perfectly seasoned. All of our meals were delicious.
The only complaint that I would have is with the portion size and the way the food is plated. The rabbit ragu was a small portion with very little rabbit and it was arranged on only one side of the plate. All of the portion sizes were small. I hate to get really great food, but not enough of it
Would definitely return, I would recommend a great artisan bread also. We were not offered bread and wonder if it is just not served there??

I've wanted to go to The Greenhouse for sometime and glad I did. Went with a friend before a Playhouse Square performance. We ate outside (which is unusual for mid-October). The server was very attentive but did not hover. He spent a lot of time explaining this very unusual menu. Food was very good to excellent. Would highly recommend.

Requested their kitchen seating for our 20th anniversary celebration and it was very fun. Boisterous staff makes it a true dining experience. We had some amazing small plates: gnocchi, Brussels sprouts, carpaccio and confit wings (their specialty) with a tremendous bottle of wine. Great time watching the orchestrated "chaos" of the kitchen!

I have been looking forward to dining at Greenhouse Tavern, and finally had the opportunity. I made a reservation to ensure our experience was good, and yet the meal itself couldn't have been more disappointing. My husband and daughter ordered burgers and a "tater" to share. I ordered a strip steak and another "tater". I can't believe that both the burger (an $18 burger, by the way) and the "taters" both came out lukewarm. We sent the taters back, and the server didn't charge us the $1 upcharge for substituting the taters because we had to send them back (!) so we were saved $2 for our inconvenience. You would think that this place could make a really GOOD $18 burger, and that their food would be hot. I will never eat there again. The server was really nice, but that's all I can say. Never going back again.

My boyfriend and I went here expecting high quality food, service, and ambiance, and we left with quite a mediocre experience. With being an E 4th restaurant, the tables are very close together often preventing you from having any sort of privacy during your meal. Our waiter, while very attentive, kept coming to our table to try to converse with us amidst our conversation, which got to be very annoying near the end of the night, especially when we made it clear we did not want to talk. His repeated reply of "cool beans" made us feel like we were more at a college bar than at a reputable restaurant. The food was lacking flavor - the gnocci was more akin to shell pasta with runny, watery sauce. My vegetarian entree's eggplant was very bitter, ruining the dish in the process. My boyfriend's plate was more "pomme puree" - mashed potatoes and gravy - than pork chop. The portions were small with not much payoff in taste. In the future, we will make it a point to consider other restaurants before eating at Greenhouse Tavern again.
