Great location. Awesome brunch menu. Perfect 10 service. Highly recommend.
Our party of 6, we do not recommend. The first clue, I admit I missed. I could easily get a Mothers day reservation the Wednesday before when all other places were booked for weeks. Disorganized greeting which had 1/2 of our.party waiting while the others were actually seated.
The wait staff was polite and probably the best part of the meal. It was a Mother's Day brunch menu. Between the 6, we had 5 different meals. Pretty consistently poor, either overcooked, or not very appetizing. Very small coffee mugs (probably 6 oz) for $3 (the least of the issues mind you).
Having had it over to do, I would've accepted the.longer wait times at the preferred restaurant that didnt not accept reservations.
Great food, great music, nice atmosphere! Staff is very friendly and accommodating. We will come back definitively.
It was just ok. The portions was small for the price. Service was average. Had to wait awhile to be waited on.
We went or Easter Brunch-our first time there. There were very few people there so it was quiet. The waiter was not familiar with the brunch menu and the service was slow in spite of there being only a few tables around. Never saw the manager - though I thought we should have as the waiter needed help. The food was outstanding but presentation was lacking. Basically just whatever we ordered on the plate. Nothing extra to make it look good. Love the vibe of the place. We plan to go back for their regular menu :-).
A hidden gem! Love this place
Our waiter wasn’t around we kept having to call the bus boy
I do not recommend this restaurant. The place was very large and very empty. Could be a fabulous place to watch a game with friends. The service was slow and my order was wrong and needed to be sent back. We sat at a table but the bartender was supposed to have the remote to change the game being shown on the televisions. The bar was mostly unattended and all of the screens were showing non-local games (we wanted to watch the Washington Capitals). Eventually was changed upon the bartenders return. Food was plain and uninspired. Would not return.
The food is excellent we ordered the Japanese steak, lamb, chicken appetizer and pizza they were tasty except they were not hot but at room temperature unfortunately. That’s why four star . The sitting is comfortable and very nice in the patio outside. The bathrooms need some work. The price a little pricey. Overall very good
Everything was great until many people came to smoke at the patio where our table was .
Nice upscale restaurant and lounge and service is top notch!!
The food was OK and the service was lousy. We were there for Valentines Day and the meal was disappointing. The server was uninformed and the wine person not helpful. For the price I expect more. Appetizers came just before the entree after a long wait. We will not be back.
Not to eat dinner on the weekend - may need to try out during the week, maybe better service.
Its more of a happy hour social environment that turns into a club after 11pm (Fri, Sat).
Not usually open on Sundays, this was a great spot to watch the Super Bowl since they had dozens of TVs everywhere and also had projected it too. Unfortunately the menu was incredibly limited for the game with maybe 10 appetizers + only a burger with fries as the only meal option without any other items available, so was very disappointed with the selection to say the least. That said, the vibe and ambiance was good and server was nice. Food was ok, the burger was way overcooked and dry despite requesting it medium, the fries were crisp and tasty. Would try again another day to give it a chance with the regular menu.
Everything about the meal was great and both my wife and I agree that we would go back but the restroom, at least the men’s, was poorly maintained and the single toilet was missing the seat.
Casual place with a nice vibe. Service could have been better but the food was good. Will come back to sit outside when the weather is better!
Great local place for dinner with nice ambience. All menu items we ordered were very tasty! I would return here again!
Great place in Vienna/Tyson’s corner area! Come for dinner, and stay for drinks. There’s a separate lounge on one side of the restaurant with a completely different nightclub vibe. Very cool space, cool staff, and good food.
Went on Xmas Eve, so it was very quiet, but I suspect when it's busy, it would be VERY noisy. Food was really very good, tuna request was perfect! Looks more like an after-work hot spot.
Birthdays. Very welcoming service, good food & fun dancing!
food was amazing!
Liked the duo playing piano and drums on Friday. If you want to chat though, it gets noisy.
Food was good and service OK. A couple of errors coming from the kitchen that were promptly fixed.
Overall the experience was alright. Our waitress was very rude though. I don’t remember her name but she said we had to order food because she was alrighty waiting 15 mins for our whole party to get here. She seemed annoyed of our table even though we were very patient with her nasty attitude. I don’t really write these but we went last Saturday at 7pm and we were a party of 9. So regardless she was gonna get a good tip but she did not have a nice personality and if it wasn’t for the gratituty that had to be put in, I would not have given her a tip.
What an unexpected pleasure it was to dine there! It was a great place to have lunch with colleagues. I never knew this place existed! The cozy lounge area would be a nice place to grab a drink after work.
Looked forward to it based on their description of being farm-to-market, but the style of the place seemed disjointed, especially with all the TVs everywhere. Food was good, not great, with the exception of the Panna Cotta dessert.
The food was fine. Not impressive, but fine. If you like a million TV sets while dining, this place is for you. We went at what I guess was an odd time: lunch with only one other table seated at the restaurant. Service was a disappearing act though the server was pleasant. I assume she's more on top of things when it's busy, but with just us we got ignored, particularly when it was time to pay.
Service was painfully slow and while our server was kind, she was very uninformed and unable to answer basic questions. Her timing was also off and at one point she was chatting with a male server socially for several minutes while she watched us trying to get her attention. We were polite and kind throughout the experience but we were highly disappointed on many levels. For the price we paid for dinner and drinks we could have gone to other high end restaurants in Tyson’s or Vienna and had far better service and ambiance. The noise was pure chaos. Loud private parties seated in the main dining area, super sleazy men loudly talking about sleeping with escorts and debasing women. Women dressed like escorts during the dinner hour with one woman reaching across our table with her mid section and rear-end in my friend’s dining space while she chatted obnoxiously with the table next to us. The first round of drinks was very good and then the second round was undrinkable. The replacement drinks weren’t even the drinks we ordered. The food was actually very good but the experience was lacking on so many levels. We arrived for a 7pm dinner reservation and it felt more like we were at a late night after hours place full of inexperienced staff and patrons with no home training. It’s Tyson’s, not Las Vegas. This was so bad that I had to repeatedly apologize to my friend because I was the one who suggested we try this restaurant.
I ask of you to put on a Public Announcements About The Dress Code for The Evening so that the Stuff don't ruin peoples Night. I saw many people not been able to getting in with Tennis Shoes (Including my Group of Friends) where as its your Obligation to Put on Publicly What Is Allowed to Be Ware and What Is Not!!! Please I ask of you kindly to do so.
Parking is a bit inconvenient having to walk from behind the building around to the front. Noise level is louder than I like. Food was okay but not really worth the price.
I love the the feel of the place its great, modern and appropriate. The service was amazing the only thing that I did not enjoy was not being able to really hear the people we where having a conversation with. We picked this place with out knowing that it had live music or loud music playing in the background. Maybe we should have done more research we where there for a business dinner/meeting. Overall everything was good. The menu has a little of everything which made it impossible to choose from all the great items in the menu but food was great. Would visit again
Greenhouse bistro was delicious!! Went here on Saturday evening with a friend I have not seen in a while. The service was exceptional. The waiter knew everything Bout the drink and dinner menu! The food was spectacular!! Thanks guys!!! Good job!!
The service was ok. Not that great. Most of the time our glasses were empty. Barely anyone came the check up on us and the waitress refused to let us get seperate checks for our meals. We also felt rushed at the end by the wait staff.
Our server Mauricio was great with beer and food suggestions!!! He made my date feel very special thanks guys!!we love it
Great service. Fantastic ambience. Great happy hour prices.
The best part of this place was the food was actually quite good.
However, I'm pretty sure this was the worst service I've ever experienced, and as some who frequently travels and dines out, that's saying something. It was like the waiter never even listened to a trying anyone ordered, and when we asked for the check, it took over 30 minutes just to get that.
Because of the horrible service, even with the good food, sadly I don't desire going back. Hopefully the chef can find a great place to cook where the service matches, then I'll be there!
The ambience was great, food was good but the service was terrible. I will go only to dance and drinks at the bar. I don’t think I will be going anymore for food with friends.
Great ambiance, live music on Friday and Saturday nights. Perfect for dates, celebrations, dinner, lunch... Amazing menu options and great mojitos. Late hours become very loud an crowded but the crowd is not too young and crazy like in most club scenes. My new favorite spot 📍
Beautifully designed space and furniture, but unfortunately poorly executed. Our waiter was terrific and tried so hard to overcome the shortcomings of the kitchen staff - and I applaud him for it. 2/6 meals were prepared wrong - one was not even the right order. 2 meals were cold by the time they were presented. The drinks took > 25 minutes to be prepared by the bar staff when the restaurant was clearly very slow. The price point was excellent, but at the end of the day, you go there to eat and the execution was poor. I really wanted to like this place and might try again to see if it was an off day.
Who knew Greenhouse Bistro was the place to be on a Friday, unless you have children! We had gone to the Cirque du Soleil show and chose the Bistro because they offered late dinner reservations, yet upon arriving at 1030pm, the doorman would not let us in because my daughter is 14. Luckily the manager immediately stepped in and allowed us to dine, learning that we had a res through Open Table (and drove from an hour away). What we didn't know is that it was basically a nightclub at that time, with live music, dancing, etc. Once we got settled, we were greeted by a wonderful young lady (couldn't hear her name for the music) who quickly took our orders. The menu had a good selection of various cuisines from Mediterranean to Asian to American, & the prices were very reasonable. Everything arrived quickly and was expertly prepared. The stars for us were the Seared Scallops, the Pollo Cubano and the Seafood Alfredo. We will definitely return, just earlier in the day if we have kids in tow.
Awful service. They screwed up our order, took the manager to fix. Would HIGHLY NOT RECOMMEND. staff completely incompetent 😡. bad lighting
