The mushroom cheeseburger was outstanding, will definately visit again for an exciting alternative to the regular meat n 3 veg!

This is the third time we have eaten at Greenhouse and always looked forward to going as we found the food and service great. But the past Thursday night they were understaffed and rushed and the food quality was not the same quality as the previous times we attended. The wine had gone off and we were told this was due to them not having a wine cooler in the Queensland heat. Very disappointing dining experience.

The service was so poor. It took 45 minutes for our drinks to arrive and over an hour for food. The wait staff were happy to sit you down and give a menu but then ignore you. Previously have had a good experience here but their service has really let them down now.

A lovely place for casual dining. Great vegetarian food. Changing to a vegetarian diet is recommended for all who want to improve human's chance of survival in this age of climate change.

We love Greenhouse Canteen. The food is wonderful, but the noise levels at the Brisbane restaurant can often ruin the experience. Coolangatta is much better that respect. The staff play the music very loud, and with the high concrete ceilings, the sounds echoes through the restaurant. Some sound proofing and slight reduction in music volume would be great. But we still love the food.

We booked a table for 4 and were greeted warmly on arrival with attentive service.
Lovely range of organic wines, beers, kombucha and mocktails/cocktails. Plenty water offered and refilled as required.
The food which is all vegan is faultless. Plates are generous, delicious, healthy, nourishing and beautifully presented.
Lovely outlook to parkland and a nice ambience to the place.
We can’t fault it, we have been before, and look forward to our next visit.

My boyfriend and I had talked about coming to green house for months but never got the chance until last night. It was clearly a very busy night (full house seated) with very minimal staff (two girls on the floor, two girls in the kitchen). Regardless of this, our meal was still the most delicious and creative meal I’ve had in Brisbane. Being long time hospitality workers ourselves, my partner and I both noticed how busy it was and how little staff there was and were very impressed with how well the girls worked together to just power through the night, given the circumstances. Lauren especially was very sweet and held a calm and confident face throughout what could have been an overwhelmingly stressful shift. She was incredibly kind and apologetic for not being able to connect with us as much as she could have had she had a bit more time. She made the night very special nonetheless and were so keen to come back and dabble in the rest of deliciousness that is Greenhouse.

I was really happy with dinner, the food was beautiful; even my non-vegan family members found it very enjoyable. Will definitely come back again :)

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

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.

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!
