Got great marks, and the reason why is the food! Great choices and WIDE selections. The price of $39 was also fair with the free Mamosa or Bloody Mary. Where they lost the 5 was in the service and the cleanup. Both were just above Denny's in quality. One other thing that is such an easy fix---put out little bowls... More

My friend and I read the reviews and so decided to choose Crop Bistro for our dinner. The interior is, indeed cavernous, clean and nicely decorated. We had a very nice time, and a friendly and attentive server; however, the food was not at the level I expected from the reviews (nor the prices). I ordered the roasted beet salad... More

I was there for a large dinner party which is always more difficult for the restaurant. They did a nice job. Service was good. Food was good. But I can't rate it 5 stars. My chicken piccata was not piccata bc the chicken breast was not thin. It was a medium sized thick breast that was dry. Vault downstairs is... More

The Sunday brunch at Crop Bistro was a perfect way to start our day before a matinee at Playhouse Square. I'm not usually a brunch person, because of the price and and then eat too much. To a certain degree this was the same but I will say the food was very good. Everyone enjoyed a made to order omelette,... More

You really need to visit the Crop even if it just for a glass of wine! The building itself is a stunning old bank that was built in 1922....just before the Depression hit...so it is full of history. The calamari was amazing perfectly cooked and presented. We were just there for appetizers and drinks before the game. We saw many... More

The food was great, and the staff very friendly. This is however not the place to go if you want to engage in any deeper conversations. The grand, beautiful central hall is very noisy, and it is difficult to hear and make yourself heard across the table. But mind you,the food is really worth the visit!

Visited Saturday night with an 830pm reservation for a party of 6. They ran out of items on both the main and the dessert menus when we ordered. The food was good but not as excellent as we have experienced in past visits. Service was mediocre at best... having to ask multiple times for items and also not once did... More

This restaurant features the best calamari we have had in Cleveland, and the fish was excellent as well. Fine presentation, solid service and a good, though overpriced, wine list.

We enjoyed our experience at Crop. The restaurant has a "wow" factor as soon as you walk in the door and look up at the ornate, enormous ceiling. Our favorites were the shrimp and scallops with lobster grits entree and the calamari appetizer. The rack of lamb and couscous entree was bland. My husband found several fruit flies in his... More

The ambiance is nice is you like dining in a large hall with a lot of noise. Nothing intimate or romantic about this establishment. The food was bland and not very appealing....and arrived cold to our table after a long wait. I doubt I would try their other restaurants in town or return for another visit to Crop Bistro.
