I took my wife for her birthday. She has recently changed her diet to a GF & DF. Along with here peanut allergy, this can make it really hard to find a place to eat!
The staff where very helpful and knowledgeable about what was on the menu and were willing to recommend dishes when asked.
Would highly recommend

The restaurant was delicious and during happy hour very good value for money. There was a 30th on the same night so we left earlier than planned due to the noise. Would recommend and would return.

The food is delicious we had the banana blossom Krab cakes and the chickpea crepe cannelloni. Both dishes were absolutely delicious. I can never fault the food. The person who served us could have been a bit more pleasant, but overall a great place to eat.

Service was terrible even though there was only 4 tables of people - maybe 12-15 in total. Very slow service and difficult to get a servers attention. Had 3 dishes, 1 the laksa stir fry was just awful. The other 2 were just ok.
Had to wait ages for dessert and decided to get up to leave, then finally they delivered it.
Wouldn’t return there in hurry when there are other great vegan options

At last a quality vegan establishment. The smoked thyme ginger beer is the best. We’ll be back.

The waitress we had that night seemed as though she didn’t want to be there. It was my birthday and my friend had to ask 3 times for them to bring out something for me - either a cocktail or dessert. They kept asking if we were finished and could clear plates before I had finished eating - both main and dessert. And just generally wasn’t a smiley/friendly waitress. Just leaves a bad taste in your mouth after the rest of the experience was phenom! Amazing food and cocktails and ambience! Will still return.

We had a great meal and drinks at Greenhouse Canteen and Bar. The meal was fantastic and the portions were generous. The cocktail and chai latte were delicious. It was the perfect place for me to pop the question! We will always remember the awesome night we had.

The food was outstanding as usual, and the banquet is very good value and the cocktails were delightful.
The only criticism is that the restaurant is extremely loud and it can be very hard to have a conversation.

The service was average and drinks and food took a little longer than expected considering the restaurant isn't very large.

Greenhouse is a firm favourite of mine and it made sense to book a large table for my partners surprise birthday.
The banquet menu was perfect, most of our non-vegan group hadn’t been there before and it was a great way for them to try a range from the menu! It was the ideal amount of food and everyone really enjoyed it.

From the delicious and high-quality food, to the wonderful service and ambience, this place takes the cake and is my new favourite spot. I had my birthday here on the weekend and loved the banquet option for my large group. I was the only vegan but all of my friends enjoyed the food regardless of their dietary preferences. An absolute delight! Thank you to all the staff for a fantastic evening.

Greenhouse Canteen and Bar serve up innovative and mouth-warteringly good vegan food and cocktails. I recommend the Lilac Ophelia as an excellent cocktail option. Food serves are on the larger side. I had a party of more than 10 guests on a busy weekend night and the staff were pleasantly accommodating but sometimes a little distracted by all that was going on. Still I give them 4 out of 5 for service as the serving staff remained chipper despite my big party. I will definitely eat here again and I recommend the quality of the food as being so good that even the most doubting carnivore would agree to converting to the vegan lifestyle if they could eat this well at every meal.

We have been to the Greenhouse at South Brisbane a few times before. This was our first time to experience the set menu for a special occasion. The vegan food quality was really good, especially the dessert. It was very busy and the staff did not stop. Having said that, there was nothing personal about the service. The kitchen was like a well oiled machine, pumping out the set alternate drop dishes. The next course arrived and only then were the plates from the previous course removed. Not the usual thing to expect for Valentine's dining. But we would do it again anyway!

I took my family who aren’t vegan to the Greenhouse Canteen for my 18th birthday and they absolutely loved the food and atmosphere. The staff were incredible and so lovely and energetic, they organised the cake my mum had bought in earlier and were so amazing Mum had to leave them a tip! My only criticism was that my dad didn’t like how oily and deep fried his beetroot burger was, it was tasty but a bit too much oil. Highly recommend to everyone I talk to though!

Excellent friendly service and delicious food that non-vegan family members also greatly enjoyed. Perfect venue for a get-together or date, not too formal but beautifully presented meals and good portion sizes. No-one will be left hungry! Very approachable menu. Recommend the tasting board and the mac & cheese, and the pav and the raspberry cheesecake for dessert!

Loved the fried kale! The Mac and Cheese was absolutely comfort to the max. The beetroot burger had a lot to it and tasted nice, but to be honest it’s not a burger you can pick up and eat with your hands, it’s a knife and fork meal. The only dish we thought was not great was the maple pumpkin- the noodles were awesome but the veggies seemed under seasoned. Overall, we loved the service, and the majority of the food was absolutely heaven. Definitely a place to go more often!

We went to the restaurant for the first time, for my daughter's 24th birthday, we were a party of 6
The service was quick and efficient and friendly even though the restaurant appeared to be fully booked. The food was amazing with plenty of choice the servings were big and the food was really well presented. We will definitely go back
